Help Is On The Way!
James Hartline For The San Diego City Council - District 3

Therefore, thus says the LORD,
"If you return to Me, then I will restore you;
Before Me, your God, you will stand;
And if you extract the precious from the worthless,
You will become My spokesman.
Jeremiah 15:19

To my many friends throughout America:

Eight years ago, after a lifetime of homosexuality, drug abuse and hopelessness, I finally gave all of my life to Jesus Christ. I didn't just give Him a portion of my existence: I gave Him everything. At that time, Jesus Christ became my eternal purpose for existing on this earth. The Lord was not just a religious experience for me. Indeed, Jesus became my earthly mandate. In 2000, when I gave up all of my homosexual relationships and allowed God to take away the desire for that destructive sin, God said to me, "Now follow me and watch what happens!"

Over the past five years, I have led the charge in shutting down eight pornographic businesses in the City of San Diego. One of those destructive businesses included a gay sex club that was the location where a multitude of young men had done illegal drugs and had sex while infected with the AIDS virus. In 2005, I led an investigation that uncovered a network of pedophiles who were working around minors in the San Diego Gay Pride organization. As a result of that investigation, we were able to stop the San Diego City Council from issuing a proclamation to declare Gay Pride Week in the City of San Diego. These endeavors were just a small portion of what I have helped to bring to the City of San Diego during the past seven years.

In 2003, I helped launch the Hillcrest Mission, a successful 501(c)3 charity, to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ inside of San Diego's homosexual community. Under my leadership, the Hillcrest Mission held a major conference in 2006 called "Shake the Nation." Shake the Nation featured some of America's top pro-family leaders and activists, including prominent religious attorneys Charles LiMandri and Brad Dacus and renowned author and speaker William J. Federer.

From 2004 to 2006, I helped rally hundreds of concerned citizens to save the Mt. Soledad Cross from being torn down. In 2004, we were moving ever closer to having the cross removed from the famous Mt. Soledad Veteran's War Memorial. My involvement with Mission Valley Christian Fellowship culminated in a massive religious liberty rally at the war memorial the night before the November 2004 presidential elections. With the phenomenal help of religious liberty attorney Charles LiMandri, Congressman Duncan Hunter and President Bush, we were able to permanently secure the cross at its current location atop Mt. Soledad.

In 2007, I helped organize a complicated event at Petco Park to protest the San Diego Padres who were allowing a radical homosexual group to hold a homosexual celebration at the stadium at the same time that the team had already invited thousands of young kid to participate in a "free floppy cap giveaway" event at the ballpark. Over 100 San Diegans joined me at this righteous protest where we distributed thousands of Bible tracts and information about the homosexual movement to baseball fans and families. Bill O'Reilly's popular "The O'Reilly Factor" and many local television stations provided national and local news coverage of our protest.

Prior to July of 2003, I had never once sent out an email. I did not even know how emails worked at that time. Despite being an internet novice at that time, I decided to start emailing friends and churchmembers about the corruption going on in San Diego and the homosexual community. Within weeks of sending my first James Hartline Report email news alert in 2003, my original email list of 20 people grew into hundreds. Four years later, I have the largest Christian email mailing list in San Diego County. Each month, over 100,000 emails are sent out by the James Hartline Report -- a phenomenal accomplishment for a man who was computer illiterate five years ago!

With a determination to serve God and help Christians everywhere, my original James Hartline Report email news updates have multiplied into many different arenas. In the past year, I began publishining a fully comprehensive news website called California Christian News. Last year also saw me publish my first ministry booklet, "Broken Rainbow -- After The Gay Life Isn't Gay Anymore." In 2006, my life story was featured on an international broadcoast of the 700 Club.

In all of my various ministry accomplishments and Christian activism, I have never once compromised my commitment to Jesus Christ. What people see of me in public is exactly how I live my life behind closed doors. One of the main messages that I have labored to convey to my fellow Christians is that we don't have to compromise our values or public stand for Jesus Christ to accomplish the assignments that God has given us. Too many of our American political and religious leaders who claim to be Christians, have betrayed us and our Biblical values with moral, financial and culture denials of Jesus Christ. I have proven that we can stand strong for God in the American culture and we don't have to deny our commitment to Christ in the process.

In the last four years, I have developed a Christian Citizenship group called "The Not On My Watch Team." At least eight times per year our team goes to the San Diego City Council where we speak out on issues of moral consequence. As a result of our efforts at city hall, many San Diegans have been inspired to become involved in the restoration of our city's decaying moral foundation. Many other citizens in other American cities have duplicated our organizational efforts by creating their own civic watchgroups.

And now in 2008, I am setting my eyes on an even higher prize:
I am running for a seat on the San Diego City Council.

Eight years ago, God told me to leave my old lifestyle behind, to pick up my cross, and to follow Him. I have never looked back. Even though there have been many times where I have stood in the fires of controversy, in the winds of persecution, and in the storms of sacrifice, I have been obedient to the call that God gave me those many years ago. Now, with the same dedication I have carried out over these past eight years, I am going to the next level.

Will You Support James Hartline in his bid to bring
Justice, Integrity and Strong Moral Values
back to the San Diego City Council in 2008?

I am committed to bringing justice, integrity and strong moral standards to the San Diego City Council when I am elected. There will be no compromising these values once I am elected. I am determed to see that the broken moral compass in our city is mended.

Just like when God said to the prophet Jeremiah, "if you will extract the precious from the worthless, you will be My spokesman," I feel that same mandate upon my life in this campaign. I intend to represent Jesus Christ and my fellow Christians on the San Diego City Council.
