    Thousands of dollars in donations are now pouring in to help find a home for a homeless 8-year-old Christian refugee who fled persecution with his family from Islamist sect Boko Haram in Nigeria, after he beat wealthier competitors to win New York State’s primary chess championship. The boy, Tanitoluwa Adewumi, who is affectionately called Tani, is currently living with his family in a homeless shelter in Manhattan and only started playing chess just over a year ago, according to an op-ed by The New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof. Tani who is the new state chess king of the kindergarten through...

    As we noted, following the Mosque attack in New Zealand virtually every democrat used it to blame Donald Trump and pretty much anyone on the right who looks like him. There was a conflation of white supremacists, white nationalists and white men. This attack got an immense amount of coverage in the press. What doesn't get the same attention are the constant attacks on Christians worldwide. In January a church in the Philippines was bombed by Muslims, killing 20 Catholics. JOLO, Philippines -- Two bombs minutes apart tore through a Roman Catholic cathedral on a southern Philippine island where Muslim militants...

    Google employees on an internal company listserv complained when a Christian video on marriage appeared as an advertisement on several YouTube channels. A Google vice president agreed that it was "offensive" and had the video taken down. What was so "offensive" about it? Daily Caller: Christian radio host Michael L. Brown argues in the video that gay people are welcome as Christians but that, like every other person, they are called to follow Christian teachings on sex and marriage. Brown has spoken out in the past against “homo-hatred” and “ugly rhetoric” directed at gay and lesbian people by fringe groups like the...

    -- Fr. Bernard "Barney" McMeel, who was ordained a Jesuit priest in 1954. He also worked in 24 assignments in two Alaska dioceses (1955-1978), nine in Montana (1978 until his death 1994) and one in California (1954-1955). In a 2006 civil lawsuit, he was accused -- along with fellow Jesuit Fr. Andrew Eordogh - of having sexually abused a boy in Holy Cross, Alaska, beginning when the boy was four years old in 1967. His accuser said Fr. McMeel "handed him off" to Fr. Eordogh when Fr. McMeel left in 1968 to become Superior Regular of Jesuits in Alaska. -- Fr. Walter George DeRoeck, who was a Chicago priest ordained in 1971. He resigned...

    It is both harrowing and infinitely sad to see "Leaving Neverland" and "Surviving R. Kelly,"  two cable television documentaries about the crime of child sexual abuse, its perpetrators and victims. R. Kelly currently sits in a Chicago jail cell for failure to pay child support, while at the same time, years of allegations about his sexual abuse of underage girls, have finally caught up with him. The R&B star says he is unfairly accused and that his career has been ruined by the allegations. "Leaving Neverland" aired last week, profiling two men who say Michael Jackson sexually abused them when...

    ASHBURN, Ga. (BP) -- A Georgia pastor has confirmed the termination of a church staff member who allegedly "admitted to assaulting several young people years ago." The pastor also apologized to the Southern Baptist Convention and SBC President J.D. Greear for having "failed my duty as a pastor in not taking action sooner." "My greatest failure during this time has been to the God I serve who gave His Son for me," Pastor Rodney Brown of Trinity Baptist Church in Ashburn, Ga., said March 7 in a statement to Georgia Baptists' Christian Index newsjournal.

    On a recent Sunday evening in New Haven, Connecticut, a visiting priest gave a homily about the importance of Christian love. The gospel reading was Luke 6:27: “But I say to you that listen, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. If anyone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also…”In an age of political tribalism and social media, the priest reminded us that it is all too tempting to give in to the temptation of striking back at your enemies. But the duty...

    Islamic jihadists want to destroy the artifacts of non-Muslim civilizations, because doing so testifies to the truth of Islam, as the Qur’an suggests that the destroyed remnants of ancient non-Muslim civilizations are a sign of Allah’s punishment of those who rejected his truth: Many were the Ways of Life that have passed away before you: travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who rejected Truth. (Qur’an 3:137) This is one of the foundations of the Islamic idea that pre-Islamic civilizations, and non-Islamic civilizations, are all jahiliyya — the society of unbelievers, which is worthless. Obviously...

    The Christian owner of a grocery store chain received a death threat in response to a message on his weekly ad mailer that featured a statement about Heaven, Hell and border walls.

Hell has open borders. Let that sink in.” Reggy McDaniel, owner of Mac’s, told The Christian Post in an interview Monday afternoon that the chief purpose of the...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Police in Kentucky say a Hindu temple in Louisville has been vandalized in a hate crime, its windows broken and walls covered in hateful messages. Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad tells The Courier Journal that “repugnant messages of hate” were spray-painted on its walls during a break-in this week. He says xenophobic and sexist messages were scrawled along with images of crosses and phrases such as “Jesus Is The Only God.” Someone spray-painted the eyes of a Hindu religious figure, with black paint dripping down the image’s face. Swaminarayan Temple officials say there is no...

    The Democrat-controlled House Committee on Natural Resources may soon strike the reference to God in the oath given to witnesses testifying before the panel, according to a draft, Fox News reports. Rather than including “so help you God,” at the end of the oath, it would instead read: "Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?"> The rules proposal places the words "so help you God" in red brackets, indicating they are slated to be cut. The words...

    I’ve discovered a work by Dan Buttafuoco, a personal injury and malpractice attorney handling cases nationwide, that really hits it out of the park. His new book, "Consider the Evidence, A Trial Lawyer Examines Eyewitness Testimony In Defense Of The Reliability Of The New Testament," puts the Christian faith inside the courtroom. Having tried many jury and non-jury cases over his 38-year career, Dan brings his legal insight to bear in analyzing evidence for the New Testament 's reliability both in subject matter and in transmission. While other authors have written extensively on this subject what strikes me about his...

    While declaring herself a Christian on Saturday, singer Lady Gaga slammed Vice President Mike Pence as the worst example of a disciple of the faith for supporting his wife’s decision to work at a Christian school that doesn’t endorse homosexual behavior. “To Mike Pence who thinks it's acceptable that his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ. You are wrong," Gaga said in a recording from her performance at Park MGM in Las Vegas that was shared on Twitter. "You said you should not discriminate against Christianity.

    Chinese believers are finding that their travel is being monitored or prohibited. They fear social credit system and growing pressure on family members.The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) authorities have been registering the personal information of religious believers on a comprehensive scale. The data collection is nationwide, centralized into a unified database, and associated with a similar collection of data on religious venues. Religious and human rights advocates are concerned that this information will be integrated into China’s so-called “social credit system,” and could be used as a powerful weapon against believers. In 2014, the State Council promulgated a Planning Outline...

    Remember in the late sixties and early seventies on Saturday mornings or possibly Sunday mornings real early (around maybe 5 or 6 a.m.) there used to be a type of playhouse 90 Christian drama that was staged on live sets? There was 50s type of jazz music playing for background. A contemporary Christian setting in that they were depicting people living in cities in modern times that had issues that were biblical nature. Does anybody remember those shows? And if so do you remember the name of those programs? And if they are available to view online anywhere? I think...
