  • Bigotry in numbers: Why so many academics look down on evangelicals

    08/28/2015 6:48:58 AM PDT · by daniel1212
    Those who teach in higher education are relatively OK with some religious groups, according to a study based on a 2012 online national survey that drew 464 complete responses. Asked to assess religious groups on a “feeling thermometer” of 1 to 100, Jewish people, mainline Protestants and Catholics all achieved an average score of 65 or higher, researchers led by University of North Texas sociologist George Yancey reported in an online article in the journal Sociology of Religion. Next to the bottom, just slightly above fundamentalists, were Protestant evangelicals with an average score of 48. Based on the rankings and...
  • Building an Islamic State in America, One Church at a Time

    Across Europe, thousands of churches have closed and many of them have become mosques. The St. Mark’s Cathedral in London survived Nazi bombers in WW2, but fell to a new invasion and became the New Peckham Mosque. In France, where there are now more Muslims than practicing Catholics, the Islamic colonists demanded that thousands of empty churches be turned into mosques. The Capernaum Church in Germany has become the Al-Nour Islamic Center. In Amsterdam, the St. Ignatius Church was transformed into the Fatih Camii Mosque. Its name means ‘The Conqueror’s Mosque’. The original Fatih Camii Mosque had been built by...

    WASHINGTON — In a letter urging Secretary of Defense Ash Carter to intervene, a congressman said Wednesday that the Army went too far in reprimanding and initiating actions against a Green Beret who shoved an Afghan police commander after he allegedly admitted raping a young boy. Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland faces involuntary separation from the Army by November. Martland, 32, has said he wants to continue serving and is being removed based solely on the September 2011 incident while deployed to Kunduz province. Messages seeking comment from the Army were not immediately returned Thursday. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a...

    Univision's Jorge Ramos had blood in his eyes during an interview with Megyn Kelly Wednesday evening.  Following his humiliating removal from Donald Trump's press conference on Tuesday, an indignant Ramos told the Fox host: He tried to silence me, and in this country you cannot do that. I'm a citizen, I'm an immigrant, I'm a reporter. And I have the right to ask any question I want, to whomever I want. Ironically, Kelly experienced firsthand Ramos's sense of entitlement when it comes to hogging the microphone.  The Mexican media personality interrupted Kelly several times, often talking over her. But...

    Donald Trump recently appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s show and was presented with an emotive scenario intended to bring Trump into the quandary of the establishment. In context of rounding up illegals for deportation, Mr. Trump was asked about the families. What about the undocumented people living in our country, working hard and raising children? Is Trump going to bust into every home Janet Reno-style and drag families, kids and all, to the southern border? This scenario creates quite the image and will be used repeatedly by the press to show just how unworkable, unfair, and heartless Trump’s idea really is....

    Stop bellyaching about Washington. All the country’s best fascists are on your local city council. Not long ago, Colorado became a leader in the fight against religious freedom when its Civil Rights Commission, self-appointed ministers of justice and theology, decided that a shopkeeper who refuses to participate in a gay wedding ceremony must be smeared and fined out of business. A Colorado appeals court says this is kosher, finding that the brittle sensitivities of a cakeless couple outweigh the constitutional rights of Christian business owners. Now, in an effort to save everyone some time, the cultural imperialists at the Denver...

    Minneapolis, Minn.—To the increasing reports of Democratic leaders panicking over Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal and considering alternative presidential candidates, delegates at the Democratic National Committee’s summer meeting on Thursday had just one response: Remain calm! All is well! To a man, the state Democratic-party leaders and activists who packed the hallways of the Minneapolis Hilton scoffed at suggestions that Clinton’s e-mails could sink her campaign — and cautioned Vice President Joe Biden against pursuing his own campaign against her. “I think it would be a mistake for him to enter the race, as a respected Democrat and politician,” says Nick...

    Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 28 aug 2015
    Two years after Illinois’ concealed-carry law went into effect, it’s time we took a hard look at whether people who are a danger to themselves or others are getting permits to carry hidden weapons. Under the law, even people who been arrested for violence are eligible to carry concealed weapons. The law leaves it up to local police to object if someone who shouldn’t be packing heat applies for a permit. But that extra safeguard apparently is not protecting us the way it should, at least in Cook County, whose residents account for about a quarter of the state’s concealed-carry...

    2016 GOP frontrunner and billionaire Donald Trump already won his war with the Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly. She’s exposed as having a point of view, rather than being a purely impartial arbiter of news. Now he’s just having fun as a larger war between him and the network’s powers-that-be looms. But what Trump has done in a truly special manner is expose that fallacy. It’s not that Trump’s war with Kelly isn’t petty—it is, and it is probably counterproductive to be fighting with a television personality for weeks on end as he’s soaring in the polls. He could be...

    Holier-than-thou liberals on the Denver city council are waging war on Chick-fil-A in the name of tolerance and diversity. Now, let me tell you what the squawking is really all about: It's a distraction, a feint, a mile-high smokescreen. Spiteful Democrats claim they are upholding progressive "Denver values" by delaying approval of an airport concession contract with the Christian-owned restaurant chain. But the politically correct storm over same-sex marriage (which Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy personally opposes) is convenient cover for the local government's serial mismanagement, bloated spending and shady contracting practices. Denver International Airport concessionaires raked in more than $322...

    The Obama administration has punished the state of Kansas for cutting taxpayer funds for the Planned Parenthood abortion business by cutting its federal Title X funding by the same amount. The moves comes at the same time the abortion giant is facing intense criticism over its sales of aborted babies and their body parts. In 2011, pro-life Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill signed into law a bill that would shift funding away from the Planned Parenthood abortion business and stops abortion funding in health insurance programs. The Kansas Senate passed the measure on a 28-10 vote and the state...

As LifeNews reported, some of the expose’ videos have featured Holly O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist who unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress in late 2012. That’s the company that acts as a middleman and purchases the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood to sell to research universities and other places. StemExpress was partnered with Planned Parenthood up until last week, when it quietly announced it ended its relationship...

    Whacking Donald Trump with a stick is big business in San Francisco. You can do it for $14 to the small Trump, or $20 if you splurge for the large Trump. The stick costs $3 extra, and you really need a proper stick, customers say, to bust Trump to smithereens. Those are the economics — a field said to be Trump’s specialty — in the red-hot business of selling Donald Trump pińatas.

It was all faked.Gizmodo reported: When hacker group Impact Team released the Ashley Madison data, they asserted that “thousands” of the women’s profiles were fake. Later, this number got blown up in news storiesthat asserted “90-95%” of them were fake, though nobody put forth any evidence for such an enormous number.

Now that I have your attention, let’s consider a logical consequence of the current policy of the U.S. government, granting “birthright citizenship” to a child born in the United States of illegal immigrants, otherwise known as an “anchor baby.” Section I of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” At...

Davis, a Democrat, says that her Christian beliefs will not allow her to issue licenses for same-sex “marriages.” Despite pressure from Democrat Gov.

However, the Sixth District Court of Appeals said Davis must issue the licenses. While critics say Davis must follow the law as a...

    The consolation prize in the great Senate GOP sellout on the Iran deal was supposed to be the opportunity it created to embarrass Obama. The fear was that if Republicans insisted on two-thirds approval of the deal for ratification, as the Constitution’s Treaty Clause requires, King Barack would simply reassure the public that this wasn’t technically a treaty and proceed to implement the agreement under his own executive authority. Heads he wins, tails you lose. That’s life in post-republic America. (And if you like that model, wait until President Trump is sworn in.) So Bob Corker and McConnell decided...

And Joe Biden is getting out that he doesn't know if he's got enough emotional fuel in the tank. He just doesn't know if he's got it. On the Republican side, there's big news with Trump. Trump has told Republican...

    Not just one, but three Second Amendment groups have filed suit against the city of Seattle for adopting a “gun violence tax” on ammunition and firearms, “designed to help offset the financial toll of gun violence”: The complaint was filed Monday in King County Superior Court by the NRA, the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, along with two gun owners and two gun shops. It called the tax legally unenforceable because Washington state prohibits local governments from adopting laws related to firearms unless those local ordinances are specifically authorized by the state. More likely...

    According to the Daily Caller, Speaker Boehner broke Reagan’s 11th Commandment big time at a GOP fundraiser in Colorado, Wednesday evening: At a Steamboat Springs event for GOP Rep. Scott Tipton, the Ohio Republican quipped that he likes how Cruz’s presidential campaign keeps “that jackass” out of Washington, and from telling Boehner how to do his job.That remark rubbed some attendees the wrong way.“I don’t think it’s terribly speaker-like, and I think it kind of goes against everything that Reagan ever said about disparaging Republicans,” said Ed MacArthur, the president of Native Excavating, who attended the fundraiser. Given Speaker...

    Attention pro-life Americans. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton thinks you have something in common with terrorist groups like ISIS if you favor de-funding the Planned Parenthood abortion business after it was recently caught selling aborted babies and their body parts.On the campaign trail, Clinton compared pro-life people to terrorists:“I would like these Republican candidates to look the mom in the eye who caught her breast cancer early because she was able to get a screening for cancer, or the teenager who didn’t get pregnant because she had access to contraception, or anyone who’s ever been protected by an HIV test....

    There is no greater political miscalculation, or fraud, than the notion that Republicans have to “moderate” their positions on immigration reform in order to appeal to Hispanic voters. This fiction began with President George W. Bush’s aborted attempt at comprehensive immigration reform in early 2007.

    'Observing the 40th anniversary of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run,” the Atlantic published, in tribute, a masterpiece of point-missing, reframing the album as a story of inequality and “urgent activism.” Coincidentally, these are the exact obsessions of Ph.D.-holding 2015 elites who are a foreign nation to Springsteen’s shabby village of broken heroes and Magic Rats. The Atlantic piece by academic Joshua Zeitz tries to shove Springsteen’s lyrics into a predetermined mold as awkwardly as Cinderella’s stepsisters trying to jam their large, nasty feet into that tiny slipper. Zeitz, a college history teacher, expends several paragraphs praising subjects the album doesn’t...

People have posed many objections to a factual interpretation of this event and this article (and the articles linked to it) answers many of the key questions people have about the Flood and the Ark.
