    Second Lady Karen Pence, the wife of the US vice-president, will return to teaching art at a school that requires employees to oppose LGBT lifestyles. The school in Springfield, Virginia, bars teachers from engaging in or condoning "homosexual or lesbian sexual activity" and "transgender identity". Mrs Pence previously taught art at the school for more than a decade while her husband was a member of Congress. A spokeswoman for Mrs Pence has hit back at criticism of her employer. "Mrs Pence has returned to the school where she previously taught for 12 years," the second lady's spokeswoman Kara Brooks said...
  • "Western Civilization" sometimes called "Christian Civilization" is now a racist concept?

    Western culture, sometimes equated with Western civilization, Occidental culture, the Western world, Western society, and European civilization, is a term used very broadly to refer to a heritage of social norms, ethical values, traditional customs, belief systems, political systems and specific artifacts and technologies that have some origin or association with Europe. The term also applies beyond Europe to countries and cultures whose histories are strongly connected to Europe by immigration, colonization, or influence. For example, Western culture includes countries in the Americas and Australasia, whose language and demographic ethnicity majorities are European. The development of western culture has been...

    I was on the broad way (road) leading to destruction (Matthew 7:13). I was lost (Luke 19:10; 2 Corinthians 4:3). I was condemned already because of my unbelief (John 3:18; compare 1 Corinthians 11:32). I was a lover of darkness (John 3:19). I was under God's abiding wrath (John 3:36) awaiting God's coming wrath (Luke 3:7; Ephesians 5:6; Colossians 3:6). I was an ignorant worshipper (John 4:22). I was an evildoer deserving judgment (John 5:29; compare 3 John 11). I was of the world and from below or beneath (John 8:23). I was yet in my sins (John 8:21,24; compare...

    Can the Word of God Contain Errors? By Philip Cottraux When I read Lee Strobelís The Case for the Real Jesus, one quote in particular stood out to me. This was during his interview with Daniel Wallace, a professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary: STROBEL: ďIt was almost as if (Bart) Ehrman were saying ĎFind me one error and Iíll throw out the whole Bible.í Thatís something you hear at some ultraconservative Christian schools.Ē WALLACE: ďGood grief, thatís such a shockingly naÔve approach to take! Youíve basically turned the Bible into the fourth person of the Trinity,...

    This mess at our southern border is stirring up the Sunday-school wannabes again, and as a Christian and a conservative I am getting tired of being schooled by liberal Christians and nonbelievers about what my opinions should be, about what Jesus would do. This needs to stop; we Christians need to stand up for our Savior and put an end to the appropriation of our Scripture and misunderstandings of Christís commandments. In order to do this, we must first establish a couple of principles that are often ignored in this era of super-sloppy thinking. In the first place, God quite...

    I donít like to mix politics and rockíníroll. I donít look at Bono, Sting and Bruce Springsteen as political. I look at them as being humanitarian. Iíll contribute to anything humanitarian. Helping people who canít help themselves. But when musicians are telling people who to vote for, I think thatís an abuse of power. Youíre telling your fans not to think for themselves, just to think like you. Rockíníroll is about freedom Ė and thatís not freedom. I want my shows to take you as far away as possible from politics. Itís supposed to be an escape from the world...

    Although legendary rocker Alice Cooper has been often quoted in the media as a supporter of the Republican Party, Cooper set the record straight during a recent interview with Canada's "I'll be honest, I go from Democrat to Republican," he said. "I vote for the person, not the party. [As for U.S. Vice President hopeful Sarah Palin], I think she's totally a breath of fresh air. When they say she has no experience, maybe that's what Washington needs. I still don't know who I'm going to vote for. But in a shooting war, I want a pit bull, not...

    Shock rocker plans Christian youth center PHOENIX, Aug. 1 (UPI) -- Alice Cooper shook the rock world in the 1970s with on-stage beheadings and songs about dead babies; now he's opening a Christian youth center in Phoenix. The $3 million center Cooper is establishing with Grand Canyon University in Phoenix will be similar to a Boys Club with a school of rock and roll, a concert hall and sports activities -- except all will have a Christian thrust, the Arizona Republic reported Tuesday. The United States "needs a good hypodermic needle shot of morality," said Cooper, the 58-year-old born-again son...

    Ageing hellraiser ALICE COOPER is convinced the end of the world is approaching, citing the recent string of horrendous natural disasters as evidence of an imminent apocalypse. The SCHOOL'S OUT rocker, whose father was a preacher, maintains current world affairs match the forecast written in the prophetic book of Revelations in the Bible. He says, "Everybody is aware of the end of time - the floods, the tsunami, the hurricanes. It's Revelations. It's all supposed to happen. "I know where it's going because, according to the Bible, it's like this for a while and then we'll see the Antichrist, who's...

    Shock-rock legend Alice Cooper calls rock stars campaigning for Democrat John Kerry treasonous morons. The 56-year-old Cooper says he was disgusted to learn the likes of Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, R.E.M., Sheryl Crow, James Taylor and Dave Matthews were hitting the road for a series of concerts designed to help defeat President Bush. "To me, that's treason," Cooper told the Canadian Press. "I call it treason against rock 'n' roll because rock is the antithesis of politics. Rock should never be in bed with politics." When I was a kid and my parents started talking about politics, I'd run to...

    Alice Cooper says he loves God but doesn't want to become a 'celebrity' believer. The father of shock rock whose music and stage antics have outraged parents for more than 30 years told how the fear of hell turned him to God. Alice Cooper, who sang about necrophilia and chopped up baby dolls during his concerts, said that although he continues to record and tour with a theatrical horror-style show, "My life is dedicated to follow Christ." Although he became a Christian in the 1980s, apart from brief comments in some interviews the 54-year-old singer has always been guarded ...

    MANILA, Philippines Ė President Rodrigo Duterte mocked the Christian doctrine of the Holy Trinity, calling it ďsillyĒ on Saturday, December 29. In a speech in Kidapawan City, Cotabato, the President attacked the doctrine of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit as he once again went into a tirade against priests and the Catholic Church. "Youíre already praying at one God, then youíre going to pray at these cursed saints. Thereís only one God. Thereís only one God, period. You cannot divide God into 3, thatís silly,Ē said the President. Before attacking the Holy Trinity doctrine,...
  • Communists, Ocasio-Cortez and Ö Jesus?

    ‚ÄúLenin lived, Lenin lives, Lenin will live!‚ÄĚThat was the first line in my Soviet textbooks when I was a little girl growing up in the USSR. Does that line sound familiar? Maybe too familiar. Think back to the Bible. Depending on the translation, the line reads something like this: Christ died, Christ is risen, Christ shall come again. The similarity is intentional. Communists came to power over Christians in Soviet Russia. They knew that they needed to replace the Christian beliefs with something familiar to the people, to ease the transition. So they replaced Jesus with Lenin.¬†It is thus not...

    What is happening in China? Why is Chinese leader Xi Jinping, raging against religion, including Buddhism, Islam, and especially Christianity? Psalm 2 poses the question rhetorically, in the context of what has proven to be a historic phenomenon: Why are the nations in an uproar (a rage) And the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying ĎLet us tear their fetters apart And cast away their cords from us!í From Nero to Lenin and Stalin, Hitler, the Kims of North...

The Constitution‚Äôs Article VI, Clause 3 clearly specifies that ‚Äúno religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States,‚ÄĚ but that must be news to Senators Mazie Hirono and Kamala Harris. Ed Condon of the Catholic News Agency reports: ¬†A judicial nominee faced questions from Senators this month about whether membership in the Knights of Columbus might impede his ability to judge federal cases fairly.
