    Persecution – bring it on! Exclusive: Dave Welch asserts Christians will rise up only when true affliction begins Back in the early 1980s as I was just beginning to get involved in the pro-life, pro-family grass-roots movement, I had the opportunity to work with a man who had taken the mantle of an organization that was defending religious liberty. He had been working to get the church more engaged in the battle for several years and had just simply burned out. As he left the organization and the arena entirely, he made a comment that I have never forgotten. "Dave,...

    ________________________________________________________ The Obama White House "wanted a simple backdrop of flags and pipe and drapes for the speech," while conversely, Laura Bush understood that the Name of God/Christ is synonymous with the name America and the flag of same – she did not presume to place herself above God nor deny Him. Which brings me to the University of Notre Dame. What statement for God does that university make when it invites the pro-abortion equivalent of a death camp promoter to speak at a Catholic school whose doctrine vehemently opposes the slaughter of unborn children? It is appalling that a...

    Comedian and talk show host Bill Maher has made religious jokes for years but with the success of such “New Atheist” books as Christopher Hitchens’ god Is Not Great and Sam Harris’s The End of Faith, now was the time for a documentary critical of religion. In “Religulous” – a portmanteau of “religion” and “ridiculous” – Maher travels the globe to interview people of faith, challenge their often dogmatic ideas, and pitch a joke here and there. Maher starts out at home, talking with his mother and sister about the family’s ambivalent attitude toward religion. From there he begins a...

    Palin, Steele and Other Conservative Christians Not ‘Normal’? More Hypocrisy from ‘Hardball’ By S.E. Cupp Republican Commentator Chris Matthews, along with Lois Romano of the Washington Post and David Corn of Mother Jones, devoted 10 minutes of last night’s “Hardball” to lamenting the religiosity of Republicans. “Why does everything sound like the 700 Club?” Matthews flippantly probed his like-minded panelists. The criticism came in response to recent sound bites from Sarah Palin and Michael Steele — two very popular go-to targets of the left. “Suspicious” is a good characterization of the liberal attitude toward Christianity.

    ABC World News Sunday gave face time to supporters of divisive spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle, but brushed over those “Christians” who say Tolle is ‘dangerous.’” The Feb. 15th broadcast of ABC’s Sunday evening news featured Eckhart Tolle, a widely touted spiritual leader to stars such as Cher and Paris Hilton. While his books have, with Oprah’s help, sold more than 10 million copies, many Christians believe his teaching on “spiritual awakenings” is dangerous. “Paris Hilton took his book with her to prison,” reporter Dan Harris quipped. “Cher swears by him… so does Meg Ryan.

    The U.S. Senate defeated an amendment to the economic stimulus bill Thursday that would have allowed federal funding for renovations at college buildings that are used for religious activity. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., proposed the amendment after voicing criticism of a stimulus provision that says funds for colleges and universities could not be used for modernization or renovation of buildings where "sectarian instruction" or "religious worship" occur. "This is a direct attack on students of faith, and I'm outraged Democrats are using an economic stimulus bill to promote discrimination," DeMint said after the 54-43 vote defeating the amendment. Church-state groups,...

    The U.S. Senate has taken action that could mean a legal battle royal over the stimulus bill. The Senate rejected an amendment offered by Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) that would have stripped language from the stimulus bill that would force colleges and universities to throw religious clubs off campus if the schools receive federal funds. (See earlier article) Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law & Justice had this reaction. "Well, not only is it disappointing, it's almost a throwback to litigation that we conducted in the 1980s that we won unanimously at the Supreme Court," he says....

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) made the following statement after Democrats voted 43-54 against his amendment to strike language from the economic stimulus bill that discriminates against students of faith.

    (CNSNews.com) – President Obama’s economic stimulus bill would forbid colleges -- both religious and secular -- from receiving stimulus funds to improve facilities that are used for religious purposes. The provision is found in the Higher Education Modernization, Renovation and Repair section (Sec. 9302) of both the House and Senate versions of the bill, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. According to the provision, none of funds of the $6 billion allotted to the renovation, modernization, or repair of college buildings may be used for facilities “(i) used for sectarian instruction, religious worship, or school department of divinity;...

Kioni, who is a regular church-goer, was inspired to wear the ring by the American pop group the Jonas Brothers, who have all made pledges of celibacy. Purity rings are popular in America where organisers have persuaded a vast number of teenagers to abstain from sex. Kioni, of Ottery St Mary in Devon, said: 'Lots of girls sleep around.

    In its relentless drive to secularize our society, The New York Times continues to distort the First Amendment. An editorial in today’s paper notes that the Supreme Court is hearing arguments involving Pleasant Grove City, Utah, which has a Ten Commandments monument in a public park but refuses to allow a cult called Summum to erect its own memorial. Because the City “elevated one religion, traditional Christianity, over another, Summum,” it violated the First Amendment’s prohibition against an Establishment of Religion, The Times maintains. “The founders regarded this sort of religious preference as so odious that they included a specific...

    John McCain announced that he was running for president to confront the "transcendent challenge" of the 21st century, "radical Islamic extremism," contrasting it with "stability, tolerance and democracy." But the values of his handpicked running mate, Sarah Palin, more resemble those of Muslim fundamentalists than they do those of the Founding Fathers. On censorship, the teaching of creationism in schools, reproductive rights, attributing government policy to God's will and climate change, Palin agrees with Hamas and Saudi Arabia rather than supporting tolerance and democratic precepts.

    Erick Erickson over at RedState tells us all of an anti-Christian video recently introduced with great frivolity by Internet philosopher and Obama technology advisor Larry Lessig. The video introduced at a Google Author series seminar shows Jesus singing the Gloria Gaynor tune "I Will Survive" in a very effeminate, theatrical way. As the song ramps up, Jesus throws off his robe and strips down to a diaper-like covering, then he sashays through a modern city until he gets hit by a bus in an intersection. Aside from his attacks on Jesus, Lessig is also an advocate of the concept of...

    For almost 70 years, Scouts and Guides have savoured their place of peaceful worship under the trees. But no longer. The woodland chapel has been demolished - its wooden pews and rudimentary cross and altar removed. In its place is a campfire circle. The change has been imposed by the Scout Association, which believes the chapel excludes non-Christian Scouts. Locals are dismayed, but the association says it is simply "moving forward". The basic open-air structure in woodland surrounding Belchamps Scout Centre in Hockley, Essex, was built between the wars by volunteers. They used old telegraph poles for pews and built...

    Cuts targeted to keep the neo-cons on top Wed Oct 4 2006 FRANCES RUSSELL IT'S every man for himself, the elephant said as he danced among the chickens. That was Tommy Douglas's metaphor to remind audiences that government alone can redress the inherent inequality between the powerful and the powerless in society. The elephant is once again dancing among the chickens. Critics of the Harper Conservative government's $1 billion fat-trimming call it deeply ideological. The cuts overwhelmingly affect Canada's most marginalized citizens. Most ideological of all is the abolition of the Court Challenges Program (CCP) and the Law Commission of...

    While Muslims were busy threatening to kill the Pope, Rosie O’Donnell – talk-show host, constitutional scholar and celebrity airhead – was busy comparing conservative Christians to Islamo-fascists. On ABC’s “The View” last week, O’Donuts smeared committed Christians while trivializing the suffering of Islam’s many victims. Responding to the comments of her co-host that militant Islam is a threat to free people everywhere, O’Donnell – famous for her keen intellect – shot back: “Just a minute. Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation of church and state.” Actually , we...

    Neither O'Donnell nor ABC has apologized ABC's Rosie O'Donnell told a nationwide audience this week that "radical Christians" are the same as radical Muslims who piloted hijacked jetliners into New York's Twin Towers, who chop off the heads of individuals and who bomb innocent children in suicide attacks. O'Donnell made her comments as host of ABC's "The View." "Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation of church and state," O'Donnell said. She had been saying that America was attacked "not by a nation." She continued: "And as a result...

    The full-page ad in the New York Times featured head shots of Jerry Falwell, James Dobson, and Pat Robertson. Above them, in giant type, were the words, “Meet America’s Most Influential Stem Cell Scientists.” The ad charges evangelicals with trying to turn America into a theocracy and outlaw scientific research. This ad was one of many hysterical, vicious, and untruthful ads paid for by a group called the Campaign to Defend the Constitution, or “DefCon.” But far from defending the Constitution, DefCon, which does not have to report who they are or who is paying for these ads, is an...

    How long will it be before Christianity becomes illegal in Britain? This is no longer the utterly absurd and offensive question that on first blush it would appear to be. An evangelical Christian campaigner, Stephen Green was arrested and charged last weekend with using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour. So what was this behaviour? Merely trying peacefully to hand out leaflets at a gay rally in Cardiff. So what was printed on those leaflets that was so threatening, abusive or insulting that it attracted the full force of the law? Why, none other than the majestic words of...

    EU knocks Poland's Christian values ReligionAndSpirituality.com BRUSSELS, August 31 (UPI) — European Union officials publicly rebuked Poland's prime minister for his ruling coalition's Christian values. EU officials, meeting with Jaroslaw Kaczynsky, a devout Roman Catholic, said traditional family values were a threat to "European values," the Telegraph reported Thursday.

One of them is a populist anti-European Union party. The other is a nationalist party called the League of Polish Families, which dismayed Brussels...

    AgapePress) - Although funnyman Will Ferrell's new movie, Talladega Nights: the Ballad of Ricky Bobby, finished first at the box office this past weekend, the comedy was not a winner as far as Christian movie reviewer Ted Baehr is concerned. Baehr, publisher of Movieguide.org, is waving the yellow flag over the film about a dim-witted NASCAR racer with a gung-ho, win-at-all-costs attitude. According to Associated Press (AP) reports, the Christian media reviewer describes Talladega Nights as "a racist, bigoted work that ridicules the Bible Belt, Southern white men, Christianity, Jesus Christ, the family, and American masculinity." The Movieguide review of...

    HALTON, ON, June 9, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The verbal sparring match began on May 28, when Conservative MP Garth Turner appeared in a television interview, alongside pro-marriage/Christian political activist Charles McVety. The issue at hand was homosexual “marriage” in the RCMP. During what McVety—who is involved in or represents the views of groups including Defend Marriage Canada, the Canada Christian College, and the Canada Family Action Coalition—calls a “spirited” debate, it came to the fore that one of the goals of Christian political activists is to work to ensure that anti-marriage, anti-life, anti-Christian Conservative MPs are defeated and replaced...
