    A little homework into the Southern Poverty Law Center clarified its true mission: Make money while working hand in glove with the mainstream media to attack America’s foundation using a Communist/Marxist agenda. SPLC’s founder is lawyer Morris Dees who in 1961 earned money by doing legal work for the Ku Klux Klan. That information alone brings enough red flags to expose SPLC as an illegitimate and anti-American organization. Dees founded SPLC in 1971 after the civil rights battle had been won and there was no more money left in representing groups like the KKK. He then jumped to the other...

    I just want to say that David Wood-and the handful of Christians in attendance-exhibited the attributes that one would expect from people who were saved from death by Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. While his opponent, and almost all of the Muslims in attendance-with the exception of the evening's host, who deserves to be commended for his efforts to impose civility-exhibited all of the attributes of those who are profoundly lost and who venerate a man who was imbued with wickedness, and served as the literal translator of the Devil. Even so, I hope that some...
  • Belgian Christmas Market is Named Winter Market, Because it ‘Could Offend Other Beliefs’

    11/04/2018 6:57:24 AM PST · by marshmallow · 12 replies
    Organisers of the Christmas Market in the Belgian city of Brugge changed its name to Winter Market. The decision was made to not ‘offend other beliefs’, Belgian newspaper HLN reports. The newspaper says that the Christmas lights on the market will be replaced by neutral winter lights. People and politicians are not amused about the changes. Pol Van Den Driessche, a member of local opposition party N-VA, calls the decision ‘incomprehensible and unbelievable’. “So we are not allowed to speak about a Christmas Market, but only of a Winter Market. This is not only a completely insane decision, it also...

    Blog claims sermon by imam at Oxford church contrary to ‘sacred act of divine worship’ in keeping with C of E ritesAn invitation to a distinguished Muslim scholar to preach at a eucharist service in an Oxford church on Sunday has triggered complaints from traditionalists. Monawar Hussain, who was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours last year for services to interfaith relations and the community, will deliver a sermon at the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, following a request from Oxford University’s vice-chancellor, Louise Richardson. The move has been denounced by Archbishop Cranmer, a conservative Anglican...

    "Once upon a time in a primitive land of polytheist idolaters far, far away, an egomaniac zealot with high ambitions hit on a bright idea. On learning of the ancient Jewish prophecy of a Messiah, and the newish Christian communities’ worship of Jesus as the “Chosen One”, he decided to nominate himself as the latest in the line – the Messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets. If the Angel Gabriel could give the name ‘Jesus’ to Mary, why couldn’t Gabriel be recruited to authenticate Muhammad’s pronouncements? The polytheists who worshipped 360 idols in the Ka’aba of Mecca...

    A group of prominent U.S. evangelical figures, including several of President Donald Trump's evangelical advisers, met Thursday with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, whose role in the killing of Washington Post contributing columnist Jamal Khashoggi remains unclear. In a statement that included smiling photos, the group said "it is our desire to lift up the name of Jesus whenever we are asked and wherever we go." The meeting at the royal palace in Riyadh comes amid widespread questions about the role the prince played in the operation that left Khashoggi dead after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul...

    An Islamic school which taught that only Muslims and animals were saved on Noah’s ark has become the first to be successfully prosecuted for operating illegally. The Al-Istiqamah Learning Centre in west London marketed itself as a study centre where home-educated children had part-time tuition, but Ofsted inspectors found that almost 60 children of compulsory school age were regularly attending the centre during school hours. The case was referred to the Crown Prosecution Service after the centre failed to respond to Ofsted’s warning notice in November 2017. Director Nacerdine Talbi and Headteacher Beatrix Kinga Bernhardt have now become the first...

The applicant claimed she was contributing to public debate.An Austrian woman's conviction for calling the Prophet Muhammad a pedophile did not violate her freedom of speech, the European Court of Human Rights ruled Thursday. The Strasbourg-based ECHR ruled that Austrian courts carefully balanced the applicant's "right to freedom of expression with the right of others to have their religious feelings protected, and served the legitimate aim of preserving religious peace in Austria." The woman in 2009 held two seminars entitled...

    Premier reported Saturday that “the Diocese of Oxford is defending its invitation to a Muslim scholar to preach at a eucharist service.” “Inter faith champion Monawar Hussain” is set to speak after the service at St Mary’s Anglican church, although “the original advert suggested he would deliver the sermon during the service.” How wonderful and broad-minded! When is the mosque going to feature a Christian priest delivering the Friday khutba? Adrian Hilton of the Archbishop Cranmer blog said: “He will no doubt be preaching about love, peace, reconciliation and tolerance, all of which would be laudable topics for an...

    ROME — An African archbishop told the Vatican synod of bishops this week that Christians in his country have learned tolerance, friendship, and cooperation by allowing themselves to be “evangelized” by Muslims. Archbishop Ilario Antoniazzi of Tunis, who represents the North African bishops’ conference, told members of the synod of bishops that the few Christians living in North Africa must be very careful not to offend Muslims with an overt show of faith, Catholic News Service reported Wednesday. Christians in North Africa must live their faith with “great discretion,” said Antoniazzi, in the midst of a Muslim majority that often...

    French hero Arnaud Beltrame, who sacrificed himself to save a hostage from a Islamist terrorist, won’t have a place named after him because it may upset Marseille’s huge Muslim community, Valeurs Actuelles reports. On 24 March 2018, an ISIS terrorist stormed a supermarket in Trèbes, armed with a handgun, a hunting knife and three homemade bombs. He shot two people dead and took others hostage. During the negotiation with the police, the terrorist accepted Beltrame’s offer to swap places with the last hostage, a female cashier. Beltrame also set his phone on a table with its line open so that...

    At least one quarter of the Bible consists of prophecy, much of which has been fulfilled, demonstrating the veracity of the scriptures and the unseen hand of our great Creator that inspired them. The Bible contains many mysteries, some of which result from the figurative language used in dreams and visions in prophecy. As indicated by the Reformers quoted in the following many prophecies remained mysteries, until the prophecy was fulfilled which could then be understood through hindsight, as in the examples that we will explore in these pages.

    CHESTER, England - Christianity in Iraq is just one wave of persecution away from extinction, said the Chaldean Catholic archbishop of Basra. In an interview with Catholic News Service, Chaldean Archbishop Habib Nafali said there were now so few Christians in his country that the church there would disappear if it was subjected to further persecution. He said the displacements and murders of Christians over the past 15 years constituted genocide. “Another wave of persecution will be the end of Christianity after 2,000 years,” he said in the Oct. 5 interview in St. Columba’s Church. “There is a global game,...

Search for Jesus has over 500 trained volunteers ready to respond to online visitors with the hope of the Gospel. Two of those volunteers, Brian and Kimberly of North Carolina, spent years as missionaries to Muslims in Southeast Asia and now answer emails from Muslims around...

  • The Myth of the Moderate Muslim; It is the "moderate" support that keeps the Jihadists alive

    American Thinker ^ | 09/17/2018 | Amil Imani
    Is “Moderate Islam” an illusion? Moderate Islam is a wedge that will jam open the door to Jihad, and "evil will triumph when good Muslims do nothing." The great majority of Muslims are not adherents of the radical line. Yet, because Islamists wage war under the name of Islam, they receive immense direct and indirect support from rank-and-file ordinary Muslims. It is this support of moderate Muslims that keeps Jihadists alive. Perhaps it is wishful thinking on the part of non-Muslims to believe that one can be a moderate Muslim who does not participate in any shape or form the...
