    An Ohio mother says her two children were kicked out of a Christian school in Cuyahoga Falls because she is unmarried and the children have different fathers, The Beacon Journal reported Friday. Summer Grant said her two daughters, 10-year-old Summara-Rayn and 7-year-old Summaia, were dismissed from the Chapel Hill Christian School last Friday, just weeks before school ends for the summer. “Just because I’m not married and my children do have different fathers doesn’t mean that I don’t want my children to have a good education and I don’t want them to know who Christ is in their education,” said...

    Organizations promoting family and faith have purchased an ad in the Wall Street Journal that calls upon media and tech industry giants to stop aligning themselves with the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) smears of conservative and Christian groups. Family Research Council (FRC) purchased the ad in conjunction with the American Family Association (AFA) and in cooperation with SPLCexposed.com. The SPLC has declared both FRC and AFA as “hate groups” because of their promotion of Christian family and sexuality values. The SPLC – notorious for its labeling of many conservative and Christian organizations as “hate groups” – has recently...

    IFB ^ | 4/15/19
    Many today in America are playing the "Christian" actor role (the Hypocrite) while refusing to believe and waring against Almighty God's Word and the TRUE Gospel message (Matt. 7:13-23, Acts 4:12, Rom. 6:23, 10:2-4, 1 Cor. 15:1-4, Eph. 2:8-9). No day is quite revealing as Palm Sunday! It is a great day to evaluate our hearts to see of a truth if we are in the faith of God by the Word of God or not. The very people who DO NOT want to hear the TRUE Gospel message all year long and despise the Bible will be getting their...
  • When Christian Colleges Teach Students to Fear, Not to Think

    Townhall.com ^ | April 13, 2019 | Ryan Bomberger
    Christians are called to be strong and courageous. But that’s not what Christian students are being taught on many Christian college campuses today. Too often, they’re taught to fear and to hide behind a false pretense of grace while extending none. Christian writer, speaker and author—Matt Walsh—was protested by college staff and students, at Baylor University, who didn’t want to hear a Biblical perspective on culture-shifting issues. How dare a Christian father speak Biblical truths about abortion, marriage and gender! That’s “hate speech." This is intolerable in a day and age when many define their own subjective truth which cannot, apparently,...

    The marble steps Jesus is believed to have climbed before being sentenced to crucifixion have been unveiled after 300 years. The Scala Santa, or Holy Staircase, had been encased in protective maple wood since 1723 in a bid to protect the steps from years of use. But it has since been stripped back and restored with pilgrims now flocking to see the sacred steps. Three small bronze crosses are embedded in the marble and there are spots some believe are stained by Christ's blood.

    Chinese government threatens mail couriers with hefty fines for circulation of any religious materials, as the goal is to eradicate them completely.In China, the sale of Bibles has been prohibited, and now it’s not permitted for people to mail them, too. One house church preacher in northern China’s Henan Province told Bitter Winter that in March of this year, he wanted to send a copy of the Bible to his nephew via YTO Express, but one of the company’s employees refused, citing government law prohibiting it. “It isn’t only us. Other courier companies can’t deliver them either,” the employee said....

    Washington Times ^ | 3/31/19 | Everett Piper
    If there was any remaining doubt, this past week’s news puts it to rest. Christians are now being punished in America. From San Francisco, California to San Antonio, Texas, the church is being persecuted. Faithful Christians — those who still believe in the Bible as their rule of faith and practice — are being harassed for simply holding to the millennia-old creeds of their faith. Devout Catholics are being blackballed from our nation’s courts. Evangelicals are being excluded from the public debate. Today, orthodox Christians are not only considered politically unpopular, but they are now dubbed morally unacceptable to even...

    Crisis ^ | 04.01.19 | Europe’s War on Christianity
    As the influence of Islam on European society has increased, so have anti-Christian attitudes. While civil authorities have gone out of their way to accommodate both Muslim immigrants and Muslim beliefs, their treatment of Christians has been quite different. One form that the accommodation of Islam has taken is an increased policing of Christian activities and beliefs. For many decades we’ve heard that Christianity in Europe is in “decline.” But recently the decline seems to have accelerated. Hostility to Christianity is now so widespread that it’s no exaggeration to speak of a war on Christians. In fact, “Britain’s War on...

  • UK Refuses Iranian Christian Refugee Because “Christianity Is Too Violent”

    03/21/2019 6:27:49 PM PDT · by MNDude · 48 replies
    The UK refused entry by a Christian refugee from Iran noting on their decision that Christian “is too violent.” Meanwhile, the UK welcomed 400 ISIS fighters back home into the country in 2017. The U.K. government agency in charge of immigration has come under fire for denying political asylum to an Iranian convert to Christianity and explaining its decision on its contention that the religion is not peaceful. The Iranian man had said in his asylum petition that he converted to Christianity because it was a “peaceful” religion. The U.K. Home Office, which oversees immigration and passports, among other things,...

    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...

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.

    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...

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.
