  • Who Will Save Middle East Christians: Obama or Putin?

    Few Western foreign policy analysts have taken seriously Vladimir Putin's radical reorientation of Russia from communism back to Russian Orthodox Christianity. Putin is perhaps uniquely qualified to discern that his nation's identity has been for centuries within a spiritual, distinctly Christian narrative and that a violent rending of Russia's historically religious roots led to utter disaster for the Russian peoples. Son of a militant atheist and a pious mother, Putin lived through the collapse of the Soviet Union and the resurgence of capitalism as defined in Russian terms. Though raised a secularist, he is now a devout Christian in the...

    A family who converted from Islam to Christianity say they are being driven out of their home for the SECOND TIME by neighbours who accuse them of blasphemy. Nissar Hussain, his wife Kubra and their six children claim they have become "prisoners in their own home" as neighbours attack them in the street, smash their car windscreens and throw eggs at their windows. "Our lives have been sabotaged and this shouldn't happen in the United Kingdom," Nissar said. The family claim their neighbours are targeting them because the family decided to convert to Christianity. Nissar, 49 – who had to...

    Obama may not be willing to stand up for Christians, but God is. I don't always know how He's going to do it, but I'll take His protection over that of Vladimir Putin any day - and you should too. A friend of mine responded to the headline as follows: “Hitler said the same thing in 1933.” Lest you get concepts confused, I don’t think Putin is talking about riding in shirtless on a horse to defend the rights of Christian bakeries and florists, nor to save the would-be victims of Christian-hating gunmen. But the threat he references is not...

    Melissa and Aaron Klein of Oregon, who were ordered by a state agency to pay two women $135,000 after they refused to take part in their same-sex wedding plans, may now face seizure of their assets. An administrative judge fined the couple after they declined to bake a cake for the lesbian couple, citing their religious objections. The fine was ordered by the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries, which had accused the Klein couple of violating the Oregon Equality Act of 2007. According to reports, the agency is docketing the judgement and is exploring various options for collection.Docketing the...

It's a preliminary step to seize the Kleins' house, property, or other assets...

    When a white supremacist murdered black parishioners in Charleston, SC, there was national outrage leading to the banning of the Confederate Flag and a fresh discussion of race relations in America. But when Christians are targeted and murdered on a campus in Oregon, much of the nation yawns. According to eyewitness reports, the Oregon shooter asked students what their religion was, and if they said “Christian” he shot them in the head. Yet the secular media, for the most part, is focusing more on gun laws than on the shooter’s alleged anti-Christian motivation. Why? Can you imagine what would have...

    The question on everyone's mind is: will the United States and its European and regional Sunni allies intervene to stop President Vladimir Putin from reversing the gains made by mainstream Syrian rebels after more than four years of war? Few are holding their breath. Many say, often with vehemence, that the current drama is the consequence of ongoing Western inaction and U.S. retreat at critical moments in an ever more uncontrollable conflict, whose regional dimensions are fast becoming global. Nobody in the Middle East is counting on U.S. President Barack Obama. The gloomy prediction of most is that a war...

Mercer reportedly singled out Christians for death by asking the religion of potential victims before firing on them. Mercer was then shot and killed by law enforcement.

    The last temptation of Christ may not have occurred in the desert when Satan confronted Jesus. In the biblical book of Matthew, Christ goes alone into the desert and fasts for 40 days. While he is starving, the Devil confronts and tempts him: “If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.” Christ answers, “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” The Christian church, both Catholic and Protestant, has faced a similar temptation to turn stone into bread in the form of socialism....

Raging ever forward through the blood-dripping sword of Islam, the war has been ongoing for centuries.

    The Obama administration maintains that its principal strategic response to the conflict in Syria is humanitarian, not military, and focused on human rights. In Syria as well as Iraq, the consequences of this policy have been shockingly deficient. The West is only now beginning to wake up to its catastrophic results, as Europe struggles with a mass migration of a magnitude the continent has not experienced since the 1940s. In April, Assad began intensifying the barrel bombing of Aleppo and Damascus’s Sunni neighborhoods while streamlining the passport process. In June, the U.N. was forced, unconscionably, to slash Syrian refugee...

While more “progressive” voices cry “racism,” the fact remains: there are several objective reasons why the West should give priority, if not exclusivity, to Christian refugees—and some of these are actually to the benefit of European host nations. Consider: Christians are true victims of persecution. From a humanitarian point of view—and...

One of the Muslims on board the rickety craft ordered him to stop, saying: 'Here, we only pray to Allah.' When he refused, a violent fight ensued and 12 Christians drowned when they were thrown overboard by the Muslim refugees. The tragic news comes amid reports that an unprecedented 10,000 refugees fleeing war and persecution in Africa have been rescued by Italian ships in...

    Donald Trump is hitting back twice as hard as Democrats — led by the White House – attack him for not rebuking a town-hall questioner who declared that President Barack Obama is a Muslim. “The bigger issue is that Obama is waging a war against Christians in this country,” Trump tells The New York Times.

    If a white Baptist kid named Wedge Figgus rocked up to his High School’s Show-N-Tell last week with a briefcase full of circuit boards, wires and timers that looked nada like a frickin' clock, the following chain-reaction, more than likely, would’ve been set into irrevocable motion: 1. Wedge would’ve been night-sticked into next week by the #BlackLivesMatter school cop at the behest of the lesbian/communist principal. If not that, Wedge definitely would’ve been bounced out of that school until the media had finished totally ruining his and his family’s life. Speaking of the media … 2. The presumption of Wedge’s...

    Christians need support in our country (and around the world), their religious liberty is at stake! Obama has been horrible, I will be great If I would have challenged the man, the media would have accused me of interfering with that man's right of free speech. A no win situation! If someone made a nasty or controversial statement about me to the president, do you really think he would come to my rescue? No chance! This is the first time in my life that I have caused controversy by NOT saying something. Am I morally obligated to defend the president...

    Donald Trump is hitting back twice as hard as Democrats — led by the White House – attack him for not rebuking a town-hall questioner who declared that President Barack Obama is a Muslim. “The bigger issue is that Obama is waging a war against Christians in this country,” Trump tells The New York Times. But he also said that Americans liked the fact that he did not react to things like voter anger and debate questions with the ordinary language of politicians. The Washington Post got the same message. In an interview late Thursday with The Washington Post, Trump...

    Syrian Christian refugees living in Sweden say they were forced out of their asylum house by Muslim refugees who demanded they hide their crosses and banned them from using communal areas in the home they shared. “They dared not stay. The atmosphere became too intimidating. And they got no help,” said a Swedish government migration agency rep responsible for the center they were staying in to Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter. “They chose themselves to organize [a] new address and moved away without our participation because they felt a discomfort.” The Christians, comprised of two families, were seeking asylum after fleeing...
