    You're not. But here's how you could become one if you really wanted to Sigh. We dealt with this back in December, but Nicholas Kristof is not giving up. I think he’s obsessed. Obsessed with what? Well that’s the truly bizarre thing. Liberal New York Times columnist Kristof (but I repeat myself) seems obsessed with Christianity, and wanting to be a part of it. Now normally you’d think, great! Someone wants to become a Christian! Wonderful.

    An April 10 Rolling Stone article featured an interview with Dr. Willie Parker, an abortionist who identifies as a Christian. Parker’s recently released book is titled “Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice” and was ghostwritten by Lisa Miller according to NYMag.com. During the interview, Parker stated: “I don’t think it’s bombast at all that the closest thing I could think of that would be analogous to women not being in control of their reproductive rights would be the horrible legacy of slavery we have in this country.” An April 8 Newsweek.com article noted, “…Parker compares restrictions on abortion to...

    Alabama Senate votes to allow church to form police dept. I have seen this time and time again. A church feels they are under attack by outside forces and they decide to use armed guards to protect the Pastors and parishioners. The first time I ran across this was in the early "80"s when I asked if my wife and child could attend my sister-in-laws church. She told me she would have to get permission from the leaders of the church to attend. After inquiring why, I learned that the church had been under attack and that guards were...

    Christians in Sydney, Australia, are being advised to hide their crosses after an Arabic-speaking gang shouting “F*** Jesus!” attacked a couple on a train while transport officers looked on from a “safe space” and did nothing. The Sydney-based Daily Telegraph – a News Corp outlet unrelated to the Telegraph Media Group newspaper of the same name – reports the couple were attacked while riding the train through “Muslim enclaves” in south-west Sydney. Mike, who asked for his surname to be withheld for fear he might be targeted, said that four men of Middle Eastern appearance ripped his cross from his...

    Jihad Watch ^ | April 10, 2017 | RAYMOND IBRAHIM
    A little known fact: when Muslims persecute religious minorities in their midst, they often justify it by projecting the worst aspects of Islam onto the “infidels.” A well-known phenomenon, “projection” is defined as “the attribution of one’s own ideas, feelings, or attitudes to other people.” One academic article states, “Projection allows the killer to project his (unacceptable) desire to kill (torture, rape, steal, dominate, etc.) onto some target group or person. This demonizes his target, making it even more acceptable to kill.”Accordingly, anyone who listens to the last video made by ISIS inciting violence against Egypt’s Copts would think the...

    Sisi said that the “corpus of [Islamic] texts and ideas that we have sacralized over the centuries” are “antagonizing the entire world” and that Egypt “is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost—and it is being lost by our own hands.” Egypt’s Christians began Holy Week celebrations by being blown up today. Two Coptic Christian Orthodox churches packed with worshippers for Palm Sunday mass were attacked by Islamic suicide bombers; a total of 44 were killed and 126 wounded or mutilated. Horrific scenes of carnage—limbs and blood splattered on altars and pews—are being reported from both churches....

Some 42 Christians were charged with lynching two Muslim men, suspecting them of involvement in the blasts. Joseph Franci, a rights activist who is legally assisting the accused, said that Deputy District Public Prosecutor (DDPP) Syed Anees Shah told the accused that...

    One Democratic governor is citing adherence to Christian values as a reason to oppose the United States building a wall on its southern border. California Gov. Jerry Brown (D.) explained Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" his opposition to President Trump's proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, telling host Chuck Todd that the project is not consistent with Christian values. [Snip] Todd asked if Brown would take every opportunity to stop construction of the wall. Brown responded that he and his state will oppose Trump's border wall in a "strategic" way, not wasting time on frivolous lawsuits. ... "No, we're...

    Abortionist Willie Parker has made quite a name for himself by claiming that his Christian faith is what inspires him to keep killing unborn babies. In a new interview with the Alabama Media Group, Parker said he has done “thousands” of abortions at his abortion practices in the South. Claiming the moral high ground, Parker said he provides abortions to women because so many other doctors won’t. “I believe that what I do is rooted in justice, is rooted in love, is rooted in honesty and integrity,” Parker said. “Those are values that, for me are reinforced by my Christian...

    Christian families and communities that don’t embrace some form of the Benedict Option aren’t going to make it through this time of testing Veteran journalist Rod Dreher has just produced a potent study of what ails America—and is proposing that the best solution may be (as his new book is titled) “The Benedict Option.” As the book’s promotional materials describe it: Now is a time of testing, when believers will learn the difference between shallow optimism and Christian hope. However dark the shadow falling over the West, the light of Christianity need not flicker out. It will not be...

    Session #1 of "The Silencing of God" seminar introduces the sinister attempt to expunge manifestations of God, Christ, and the Bible from American life--in direct and stark contradiction to the original intentions of the Founders and Framers. The United States of America is undergoing swift transition as the forces of “political correctness” wage a vociferous culture war. Activist judges, secularist educators, morally bankrupt entertainers, and liberal politicians have teamed up to sell a sanitized version of America’s past. Their objective? To expunge every manifestation of God, Christ, and the Bible from American life. What has been the result of their...

    MANY YOUNG ADULTS ARE TURNING TO WITCHCRAFT AS A WAY TO REBEL AGAINST THEIR CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN UPBRINGINGS Young adults in America are far less likely to identify themselves as “Christians” than previous generations of Americans, but that does not mean that they have given up on searching for spiritual meaning in their lives. According to Wikipedia, one very popular form of witchcraft known as Wicca has been growing at a rate of more than 100 percent annually in recent years, and this has been happening at a time when Christianity has been in decline in the United States. Of course...
