  • Post-Christian America: Gullible, Intolerant, and Superstitious

    "...I’d urge you to read a fascinating article in this Sunday’s New York Times. It turns out that America’s less religious citizens are far more likely to believe in things such as ghosts and UFOs than people who attend church. The author, psychology professor Clay Routledge, locates this phenomenon in the quest for meaning..."For instance, my colleagues and I recently published a series of studies in the journal Motivation and Emotion demonstrating that the link between low religiosity and belief in advanced alien visitors is at least partly explained by the pursuit of meaning. The less religious participants were, we...

    To all the women bundled in sweaters and blankets in your office air conditioning even though it's 100 degrees outside: A recent study says that it's not all in your head. It really IS cold. As many women bundle up against the arctic air conditioning, their male counterparts one cubicle over have no idea what all the fuss is about. It turns out that science says the office A/C may be biased toward temperatures that more comfortable for men — thanks to a formula from more than 50 years ago.

    Liberals have spent decades screaming about the separation of church and ‘state’, but now they’ve made a huge exception for Islam. The San Diego School District will start having school calendars showing Islamic holidays and begin to teach students about Islam in social studies classes and school district will create safe places on campuses for Muslim students as part of a multi-tiered approach to combat ‘Islamophobia’. This plan doesn’t include classes on Christianity, Judaism, or any other religion. The school district conducted a survey to see how much bullying occurred because of student’s Islamic faith and found only seven instances...

    ZANESVILLE, Ohio, February 20, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg says he wants to use his platform to build a worldwide “inclusive community.” However, a Christian ‘vlogger’ found out there appears to be no room in it for her as long as she quotes Bible passages about homosexuality. Elizabeth Johnston, aka the “Activist Mommy,” says there is a big disconnect between Zuckerberg’s recent call for a global “inclusive community” and Facebook’s “censorship of Christians.” “They are muzzling me and my biblical message while Mark Zuckerberg claims that FB is unbiased,” she stated in a news release. She has had...

    Only one-in-seven registered Democrats in America believe that Islam is more violent as a whole than Christianity, according to a new CBS poll.Catastrophes such as September 11th, the War on Terror, and recent attacks throughout the world were not enough to make a difference between Christianity and Islam for some.  ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and the Taliban were also overwritten.Republicans had a much different perspective on the matter however.  Over six-in-ten believe that Islam is more violent in nature than other religions.

    The Trump administration has reportedly killed media ads designed to encourage people to enroll in insurance coverage through the federal Obamacare marketplace before next Tuesday's open-enrollment deadline. The former CEO of that marketplace, HealthCare.gov, called the move an "outrageous decision" to "sabotage open enrollment" in Obamacare. The White House also has ended other outreach efforts to spur sign-ups on the HealthCare.gov marketplace, according to Politico, which broke the story Thursday.
  • The D.C. Women's March - The Dominance of the Godless American Woman

    Today there are absolutely no shortages of godless women in our post Judeo/Christian American culture as we have seen with the Washington D.C."women's" march. These women occupy all of society’s genres from politics to Hollywood, from the music industry to the fashion world, from the faculty lounge to the masses. They are very out spoken and preach a subtle - yet tyrannical - delusion of liberation and freedom by the application and adherence of lawlessness, immorality, tolerance and political correctness; none of which can bring TRUE fulfillment but only tyranny (Rom. 1:18-32, Gal. 6:7-8). Since the sixties, the women of...

    Gay Bureaucrat Wages War With Christian Ministry By Todd Starnes Donald Trump may be the next president of the United States but the war on religious liberty rages on. The other day I received word that Connecticut’s openly gay comptroller is targeting American Family Association, one of the nation’s most prominent and respected Christian ministries. If Comptroller Kevin Lembo has his way, AFA could be kicked out of the Connecticut State Employees’ Campaign for Charitable Giving (CSEC) — even though they are qualified as a charity under the rules. Lembo sent AFA a letter accusing them possibly being in “violation...

    Documented: Obama’s ‘Traditional Muslim Bias’ against Christians The difference between active and passive persecution. Reprinted from the Gatestone Institute.Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom CenterAlmost a year ago, President Barack Hussein Obama described the suggestion that the U.S. give preference to Christian refugees over Muslim refugees as “shameful.” “That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion,” he loftily added. Now, WikiLeaks has released a 2008 email discussing who should fill top staff positions should Obama win the presidency.  It clearly proves that the Obama administration is the...

    Dilbert ^ | Scott Adams
    I’ve been trying to figure out what common trait binds Clinton supporters together. As far as I can tell, the most unifying characteristic is a willingness to bully in all its forms. If you have a Trump sign in your lawn, they will steal it. If you have a Trump bumper sticker, they will deface your car. On social media, almost every message I get from a Clinton supporter is a bullying type of message. They insult. They try to shame. They label. And obviously they threaten my livelihood. If you speak of Trump at work you could get fired....

    The Court of Appeal in Belfast has ruled against the owners of a bakery who appealed their case after they were accused of discrimination for refusing to make a cake with the phrase “Support Gay Marriage.” Lord Chief Justice Sir Declan Morgan and two senior judges upheld County Court Judge Isobel Brownlie’s ruling that the McArthur family, owners of the Ashers Baking Company, discriminated against Gareth Lee. The judges said that refusing service because of the slogan could be classified as “direct discrimination.” “What they may not do is provide a service that only reflects their own political or religious...

    During Barack Obama’s war on Hobby Lobby his administration said flatly; “We Can and Will Force Christians to Act Against Their faith.” This is what they believe. This is how they see Christians. This was the opening battle in the Democrats’ War on Christians. It was directed by a quintessential stereotypical Democrat. Their Christian attacks are usually led by phony “Catholics” so as to more easily deflect rightful criticism for their dirty business. Putative Catholic Kathleen Sebelius was joined in her war on Hobby Lobby by putative Catholic Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor in what was fortunately a losing effort....

    Last week, The Wall Street Journal wrote an editorial about YouTube restricting access to 16 videos -- down from 21 -- that were created and posted online by my nonprofit educational organization, Prager University. The subheading read, "YouTube thinks Dennis Prager's videos may be dangerous." The Journal said: "Tech giants like Google and Facebook always deny that their platforms favor some viewpoints over others, but then they don't do much to avoid looking censorious. ...

  • Opposing Planned Parenthood is now a criminal activity [CA]

    n signing a bill that criminalizes the distribution of a “confidential” video of a “health-care provider,” Gov. Jerry Brown has at least dispensed with the notion that California’s Democratic leadership cares at all about free-speech rights. The new law, which could lead to jail time for violators, is the latest troubling example of how tenuous America’s political rights may be when one political party controls virtually every apparatus of power. Assembly Bill 1671 is a direct response to an activist group that last year released disturbing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials who were, according to a July 2015 report...

    In a speech not long before she launched her 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton made a stunning declaration of war on religious Americans. Speaking to the 2015 Women in the World Summit, Clinton declared that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” Religious beliefs have to be changed? This is perhaps the most radical statement against religious liberty ever uttered by someone seeking the presidency. It is also deeply revealing. Clinton believes that, as president, it is her job not to respect the views of religious conservatives but to force them to change their beliefs...

    Mr. Castro is chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, a venerable institution dating to 1957 that has helped America kill Jim Crow and make good on our founding promises. An Obama appointee, Mr. Castro last Wednesday made public a report on nondiscrimination protections—increasingly about gender preference and sexual orientation—that in its crassness rivals Hillary Clinton’s belittling of Donald Trump supporters. (Snip) The commission report is called “Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling nondiscrimination principles with civil liberties.” Its top finding is this: “Civil rights protections ensuring nondiscrimination, as embodied in the Constitution, laws, and policies, are of pre-eminent importance in American...

    “The phrases ‘religious liberty’ and ‘religious freedom’ will stand for nothing except hypocrisy so long as they remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy or any form of intolerance,” Martin Castro, chairman of the commission, said in a statement included in the 296-page report. “Religious liberty was never intended to give one religion dominion over other religions, or a veto power over the civil rights and civil liberties of others,” Castro said. “However, today, as in the past, religion is being used as both a weapon and a shield by those seeking to deny others...
