  • Crime pays: How Michael Brown’s family cashed in

    First, Michael Brown robbed a store. Then he viciously assaulted a policeman, fighting for the officer’s gun. The officer was left badly bruised and worried he might lose consciousness. Only when Brown charged once again did the officer fatally shoot him. As I show below, there is no debating the facts about the August 2014 shooting. Yet, what has Ferguson, Missouri done? On Saturday it was revealed that they “secretly” awarded the criminal’s family a “wrongful death claim” of $1.5 million. But if that doesn’t get you angry, look who is getting the money. After a grand jury declined to...
  • Three Men Get ‘Married’ in Colombia and There is No Slippery Slope

    In 2016, same-sex “marriage” was legalized in Colombia. One year later, the courts have now recognized a polyamorous “family” of three men. And there is no slippery slope. As reported by the Daily Mail: Actor Victor Hugo Prada and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, have signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights. “We wanted to validate our household … and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family,” said one of the men,...

    Could you help me with a comparison between Otto Warmbeir and Michael Brown? Otto went to North Korea with a group. Accused of a crime he was sentence to prison and killed. People hold back their sympathy saying, "He shouldn't have gone to North Korea." "It's his own fault for being stupid." etc. Michael Brown lived life as thug. When he attacked a police officer, the officer shoots and kills him. Millions are outraged, the police officer is brought to trail, and though acquitted, he is threatened, and harassed. The family sues and the city pays them off.....

    Warner Bros. is developing a movie about Michael Brown's death, according to a Hollywood trade publication. The studio has acquired the rights to the memoir written by Lezley McSpadden, Brown’s mother, according to Tracking Board. The memoir is titled “Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil.”
  • How Does Growing Apostasy Prove That Christians Are Getting Closer to the Truth?

    There’s a bizarre argument I’m hearing these days which basically goes like this. “Look at how many churches are embracing homosexual practice. This proves we’re getting closer to the truth.” To the contrary, all it proves is that more and more churches are apostatizing. The logic behind this argument is as wrongheaded as it is unbiblical. First, to argue that greater acceptance of homosexuality by churches is proof of spiritual growth is like arguing that greater acceptance of obesity by doctors is a proof of medical progress. The reverse is actually true. Second, the Bible often warns us against compromise...

    Edward Crawford, an activist known for throwing a tear gas canister back at police officers in a viral photo during the 2014 unrest in Ferguson, Missouri was found dead on Thursday, May 4, from what police officers are describing as a self-inflicted gun wound. Crawford had participated in the protests that followed the death of Michael Brown at the hand of Officer Darren Wilson. According to the St. Louis Police Department, the 27-year-old shot himself in the head after talking with two women about "personal matters." Crawford's father disputes the claims, telling the St. Louis Post Dispatch that his son...
  • CNN still describing Michael Brown shooting as if ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ might be true

    CNN has an article up today titled “‘Black Lives Matter’ cases: When controversial killings lead to change” which looks at how individual shootings highlighted by BLM have resulted in some changes to the law. Let’s stipulate up front that there’s nothing wrong with the subject matter here. A roundup of legal changes that have resulted from these high profile cases seems worthwhile. What’s not worthwhile is the way CNN frames a couple of the best-known cases, even failing to note there is no evidence for the story behind “hands up, don’t shoot.” Here’s CNN’s description of the Michael Brown shooting:

    Ferguson, Missouri’s top elected official in the tumultuous 32 months since the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown won another three-year term Tuesday. James Knowles III, the mayor who was the public face of Ferguson after Brown’s death in August 2014, held off a challenge from city Councilwoman Ella Jones, who was seeking to become the St. Louis suburb’s first-ever black mayor. Knowles won with 56 percent of the vote to Jones’ 44 percent. It will be Knowles’ final term in office, due to term limits. Ferguson voters also approved a ballot measure adding strict police body camera requirements to...

    Movie-maker Jason Pollock was not happy to be questioned on Fox News Channel. The director of “Strange Fruit,” which claims Michael Brown — the 18-year-old man who was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014 — did not rob a convenience store prior to the fight with police which led to his death. “You know how the system works. These cops get off every single time,” Pollock declared. Pollock started the segment by rolling his eyes as Fox host Martha MacCallum introduced a news package about the “new footage.” The situation devolved from there. “I am simply...

    A newly disclosed surveillance video from the hours before the killing of a black man in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014 has triggered fresh protests. A filmmaker has released the footage which he says shows Michael Brown did not rob a shop, as police claimed, but instead exchanged marijuana for cigars. He says it contradicts video released by police showing Brown threatening the shopkeeper as he walks out with cigars. The 18-year-old was shot dead by a police officer moments later. However, the convenience store maintains it was a robbery. Policeman Darren Wilson was cleared of wrongdoing by investigators but the...

    About 100 protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, were dispersed by police on Sunday night (March 12) after they gathered outside the market where Mike Brown allegedly stole some items on the day he was fatally killed by a police officer in 2014. The group was reacting to previously unseen footage in a new documentary, Stranger Fruit, which debuted at the SXSW Film Festival over the weekend which appeared to offer a new twist to the details of the case.

Police believe people gathered at the market because of the release of the documentary “Stranger Fruit.” Brown was shot and killed after he was stopped by police officer Darren Wilson and...

A new documentary that debuted Saturday at a film festival in Austin, Texas — citing previously unseen footage — instead reports that there was a possible drug transaction Brown had with employees at the store during an earlier visit, The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported.

    Democratic Missouri Rep. Lacy Clay wants to file a theft charge with Capitol Hill Police against Republican California Rep. Duncan Hunter for removing a painting in the capitol that depicts police officers as pigs. Clay told reporters Monday night that police spoke to his chief of staff earlier in the day and have not been helpful to the congressman in his quest to file charges against Hunter. "I think he was way out of bounds and he broke the law. It's called theft," Clay said. "I don't think anyone up here is qualified to be an art critic. I'm...

    Michael Brown’s parents are objecting to a request from Ferguson for their son’s medical and academic records as the city defends itself against a lawsuit the parents filed over the 2014 police shooting death of the unarmed 18-year-old. Michael Brown Sr. and Lezley McSpadden, in December court filings, asked U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber in St. Louis to at least limit if not scuttle altogether a push by the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, its former police chief and the officer who shot their son to turn over the documents. The parents say the documents are irrelevant and that...
  • Have Evangelicals Lost Their Credibility by Voting for Trump?

    I find it ironic that the same people who have mocked us for years as hypocrites, bigots, haters, homophobes, transphobes, and worse now tell us that we have lost our moral credibility by voting for Trump.It is true that there are Christian leaders in other nations who feel that we (meaning, in particular, white evangelicals) have compromised our moral witness by voting for Trump in such overwhelming numbers (81 percent of white evangelicals voted for him). And it is true that it is difficult to reconcile our historic mantra of “character matters” with a vote for Trump, unless we are...

    Many years ago, while participating in an Operation Rescue sit-in at an abortion clinic near Washington, D.C., I was struck by the make-up of the pro-abortion protesters. They were largely a mix of atheists, Satanists and gays, and they proudly identified as such. What a coalition! I remember asking myself, “Why would homosexuals be so adamant about this — adamant enough to show up early in the morning to protest our event — when, for the most part, it’s not relevant to their lives, since they’re not having babies?” To this day, colleagues of mine who share the gospel outside...

    Gunfire broke out during protests in Ferguson on the second anniversary of Michael Brown's fatal police shooting. Protesters were seen cowering behind cars as shots were fired at the demonstration in Missouri to mark two years since the unarmed black teen was shot dead by police. A man, named locally as Jacoby Thomas, was also injured in a hit-and-run after a car sped through a group of protesters who were blocking a street. Witnesses say the vehicle hit the young man so hard that he flew into the air. He was rushed to hospital where his condition is unknown. 'A...
