    Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison said at a Democratic event Monday that Republicans doing “Bible studies” in prisons is hurting Democrats’ chances at winning voters. “You know, back when I was in Minnesota State Legislature, I got the impression that maybe Democrats could possibly have an advantage with folks in this area who might vote for us,” Ellison said. “Not true. We will have to fight for their vote like we do with every other vote because I learned that a lot of Republicans will go to jails and do Bible studies and other things.”

    Since our government is concentrating on economics first, let us help the President and his Attorney General by doing what we can do to eliminate this horrible blight of pedophilia in on our nation. Noon, Wednesday, March 28, 2018 End Pedophilia in the World Since the United States Government refuses to go after and arrest and convict pedophiles currently and formerly in high government office, it is up to Christian men to end this scourge on the children, toddlers and infants of our country. Christ tells us directly in both Matthew 18:6, Mark 9:2, and in Luke 17:2 that it...
  • Muslims are Converting to Christianity in Record Numbers

    We are in a time of the first ever mass conversions of Muslims,” Father Mitch Pacwa SJ told me in a phone interview. “God is doing a mighty work among them.” Pacwa said that mass conversions are happening even in very fundamentalist countries. There is rapidly growing number of conversions especially on the edges of the Muslim world in the western and southern parts of Africa, he said. “Africa is now growing predominantly Christian despite crackdowns,” Pacwa said. Some of the noteworthy countries he mentioned include Iran, reported to have 3 million Christians, and Indonesia with reports of 2 million...

    "If it is unbiblical to have women as pastors, how can it be biblical to have women who function in formal teaching and mentoring capacities..." Here we go again. Theologian John Piper stirred up a hornet's nest by arguing women are not to teach men. Piper points to 1 Timothy 2:12 that churches should be led by a team of spiritual, humble, biblically qualified men. "If it is unbiblical to have women as pastors, how can it be biblical to have women who function in formal teaching and mentoring capacities to train and fit pastors for the very calling from...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump delivered a speech at the Values Voter Summit on Friday, hosted by the far-right Christian organization The Family Research Council. The convention also featured an exhibit on gay conversion therapy, which seeks to navigate homosexuals and their family members from an anti-gay perspective. The Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) organization, which was founded in 1998 "to be an alternative to the misinformed gay family groups which insist that parents can only prove their love for their gay child if they support gay rights and affirm their child's self-proclaimed gay identity," distributed a...

    ATLANTA — Hours before a 17-year-old Alabama girl was killed in a bus crash, she wrote a final journal entry about her mission trip to Africa: "God has called me here and he's done so for a reason."Sarah Harmening of Huntsville jotted her thoughts about the trip to Botswana in a spiral-bound notebook, starting with her feelings of sadness and apprehension. She wrote that she turned to the Bible for comfort and by the end of the journal entry, it was clear she found trust in the Lord."We get to participate in his divine nature! How awesome is that?"...

    May 1 - The US Supreme Court on Monday left intact California's ban on "gay conversion" therapy aimed at turning youths under age 18 away from homosexuality, rejecting a Christian minister's challenge to the law asserting it violates religious rights. The justices, turning away a challenge to the 2012 law for the second time in three years, let stand a lower court's ruling that it was constitutional and neither impinged upon free exercise of religion nor impacted the activities of clergy members.

    Despite the way it's being reported . . . This story is a good example of how politicians use phrasing to disguise what they’re really doing, and the media play along because they support the obfuscation agenda. In some cases it’s because the media really are that dumb and gullible, but the gullibility usually stems from their natural trust of Democrats - so it all comes back to the fact that they share the same agenda. You’ve heard about something called “gay conversion therapy,” which sounds like some nonsense procedure in which a “therapist” of questionable credibility tries to work...

    Some are questioning the way Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials are handling arrests in Fairfax County after at least two men were arrested near a church shelter. Oscar Ramirez said he had just left the hypothermia shelter at Rising Hope Mission Church on Russell Road in Alexandria, Virginia, when about a dozen ICE agents surround him and other Latino men. "'Stop right there. Stop right there. Stop right there. Stay by the wall, where we can see your hands,'" the agents said, according to Ramirez. The group of men had left the shelter about 6:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 8...

    The U.S. Supreme Court has been handed a bombshell: An appeal of a lower-court ruling that banned Christian counselors from talking with teens about the biblical standard for sexuality. The case challenges laws that force licensed counselors to affirm homosexuality, prohibiting them from helping clients overcome same-sex attractions. Such laws have been adopted in New Jersey, where a biased judge used it to shut down a Christian ministry, and in California and other states. The case already was presented to the Supreme Court several years ago, but it did not get a ruling. Now a new appeal has been submitted...

    We don’t force our faith on anybody else,” Chuck Wingate, executive director of Bethesda Mission, told PennLive.com. “But we find the whole idea that the government’s going to come in a[nd] tell us what we can and cannot do in our own facility to be out of bounds, especially in matters of faith.” Wingate, who says his Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, ministry serves 100,000 people a month, was referring to a new U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulation forbidding recipients of USDA food from requiring “a beneficiary to attend or participate in any explicitly religious activities that are offered by the organization.”...

    A north Dallas church is sticking to its convictions after it revoked a gay man's membership, saying he no longer desired to resist sin. In a candid facebook post last Sunday, Jason Thomas wrote about a painful anniversary one year ago about the day Watermark Community Church sent him a letter revoking his membership. Thomas said he spent years of his life in church programs that promised to help him over come his attraction to men. Many of those years was at Watermark Community Church. One program he participated in is described as a "12 step discipleship through recovery", also...

    InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is one of the leading campus ministries, and its publishing arm, InterVarsity Press, is one of the top Christian publishers. But this fine ministry is learning the hard way that, when it comes to homosexuality, you cannot straddle the fence. In a moment, I’ll explain exactly why I say that InterVarsity has tried to straddle the fence when it comes to homosexuality, but first, here’s the relevant background.Last week, InterVarsity announced “that it will begin dismissing employees who disagree with its theological stance on human sexuality starting on November 11.” As reported on The Atlantic, “Rather than...

    One of the largest evangelical college ministries in the U.S. has asked any staff members who support same-sex relationships to quit, a move critics call a purge and supporter laud as an affirmation of true Christianity. InterVarsity Christian Fellowship informed all staff about the policy over the summer after issuing a position paper based on their three years of study of sexuality that concluded sex should be reserved for marriage between a man and a woman. The organization’s leaders said employees are expected to “believe and behave” in accord with InterVarsity’s stand on sexuality, including not engaging in immoral sexual...

    CHICAGO, Illinois, August 19, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — A group of ministers is suing the state of Illinois over a law that makes Christian counseling for minors with same-sex attraction a crime. Pastors Protecting Youth has filed a lawsuit against the state's Youth Mental Health Protection Act, which makes it illegal to help teens overcome unwanted homosexual inclinations. The Illinois law states that "being lesbian, gay, or bisexual is not a disease, disorder, illness, deficiency, or shortcoming.” It bans "conversion therapy" and any counseling that "represents homosexuality as a mental disease, disorder, or illness." The language of the law is in...

    The left-leaning news media are always Johnny-on-the-Spot to criticize Chick-fil-A because its owners happen to be pro-traditional marriage. But when it opens its heart (and its doors) in the wake of a national tragedy, they suddenly put their blinders on. On Sunday, following the bloody massacre at an Orlando nightclub that caters to gays, several nearby locations of the restaurant chain opened its doors to deliver sandwiches and drinks to police and EMTs at the crime scene, and to those donating blood. In case you think Chick-fil-A was profiting from a tragedy, think again. They accepted no payment for their...

    NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - The bishops of New York have no plans to oppose state measures against gay conversion therapy. Governor Andrew Cuomo announced in a February 6 press release he would ban counseling for minors to help get rid of unwanted same-sex desires, which he called "a hateful and fundamentally flawed practice." "New York has been at the forefront of acceptance and equality for the LGBT community for decades," Cuomo said, "and today we are continuing that legacy and leading by example." "We will not allow the misguided and the intolerant to punish LGBT young people for simply being...
