    Transgender baptisms are to be offered for the first time in the UK by a church in Greater Manchester. The New Chapel Unitarian and Free Christian in Denton, Tameside, agreed the move at its annual general meeting. Jean Clements, the church's worship leader, proposed the change after meeting a couple who had a transgender child. The church was moved to make a change in order to help those in the same situation.

    When a "church" constantly tills the ground with phony claims of having "living prophets, seers and revelators", who haven't EVER "prophecied, seen or revealed ANYTHING", and fertilizes that ground with the manure of claims that these same men are powerless because unfaithful members are keeping the "church" under condemnation...they OWN the nonsense that sprouts up in the ground they have prepared.I can think of no better punishment for the breakaway sect of Mormonism, headquartered in Salt Lake city and known as the LDS, than the self-proclaimed "Reincarnation of Hyrum Smith" who has used the "urim and thummim" to translate the...

    First of all, I should have started earlier. Christmas got in the way of my redditing. Second, the second day of Smithmas was supposed to be a video of Gordon B Hinkley slipping up in an interview and saying "Jesus Smith" instead of "Joseph Smith". Unfortunately, the video has been banned from the internets, and it took me all day searching just to confirm that I couldn't find it. My third day of Smithmas would have been a photo of the Joseph Smith SphinxI may have followed up with more Joseph-worship, but got sidetracked by the video being killed, and...

    Retired neurosurgeon turned presidential candidate Ben Carson has doubled down on his crazy theory about the pyramids. Not only is it false, his idea also minimizes the wonder of God's creation by implying that human beings are not creative enough to build the majestic Egyptian landmarks on their own. At a commencement address at Andrews University in 1998, Carson argued that the biblical prophet Joseph built the pyramids as grain silos for the seven fat years recorded in Genesis.

The policy, approved last week by leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, added same-sex marriage to the list of acts considered to be a renunciation of the Mormon faith and thus subject to church discipline, including excommunication.

Dr. Carson is an elder in the Seventh Day Adventist Church which has since its founding taught pacifism. Founded in the 1860's during the Civil War, those of the Seventh Day Adventist faith have served in the military in non combatant roles. Dr. Carson has, I believe rightly so, denounced those of the Muslim faith as qualified to be President, but does he himself have...

The Mormons chose Oaks, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles that guides The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to give the speech. Oaks declared himself devoted to both church doctrine and the laws of a democratic society. But when conflicts between them arise and are decided, citizens of a democracy must follow court rulings, he said.

    Secular historians may snicker at early Christians who insisted Virgil’s Fourth Eclogue was a vision of the Messiah, but the case for interpreting Black Elk’s vision that way is not so easy to dismiss. Raymond DeMallie, founder and director of the American Indian Studies Research Institute, has delved into the transcripts of what Black Elk originally divulged to Neihardt. DeMallie’s definitive study shows the association with Jesus in this culminating passage to be unavoidable. Black Elk also said that the transfiguring figure he saw had “holes in the palms of his hands.” In addition, Black Elk flatly asserted to Neihardt,...

After a month of deliberation, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – which is the nation’s largest sponsor of Boy Scout units and continues to restrict gay and lesbian members from participating fully in church activities and leadership – said in a statement Wednesday that it would maintain its 102-year-old association with Scouting following the BSA’s controversial July decision to let gay men lead Scout units. The announcement, which comes after the BSA assured...

    GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP — The reverend and congregation of a church that unveiled a “Black Lives Matter” banner on Pomona Road say they are fearful after a receiving a hostile response to the sign on social media. Rev. Cynthia Cain said comments on the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Jersey Shore’s Facebook page could be described as threats. Many of the comments on the page also state: “All Lives Matter.” “When we say ‘Black Lives Matter,’ they mistranslate it to ‘ONLY Black Lives Matter.’ Why? Are they afraid that people might start empathizing with people of color?” Cain asked. Police...
  • Hating Catholics–America’s ONLY Accepted Prejudice

    I recall when I got scorned for attacking homosexuality on my blog with a comment that said, “You are a homophobe, do you not know that God loves everyone including homosexuals,” in which I answered with, “do you not know that God loves everyone including the homophobe?” Indeed, we say “God loves everyone,” including, but not limited to; heretics, pedophiles, hemophiliacs, sodomites, lesbians, murderers, rapists, child molesters, drug pushers and every mutant from the pit of hell, except, of course, the legalist and the Pharisee, that is, the good old Catholic Church. y now, objectors who read so far what...

    I am posting only an excerpt here because this written debate is pretty long. Read the excerpts to find out what a Synecdoche is if you do not already know. I am the baptist in the debate and think I won hands down because the CoC guy could not even prove that verbs can be synecdoches, but I did finish weakly. I am posting this to FR because in my research I found this to be the only debate on the subject even though the argument is often used by more advanced CoC debaters. Here is opening clips of my...

    The city approves an initiative to honour the Reformer that challenged the ‘capital of Catholicism’ five centuries ago. Politicians waited for the approbation of Vatican authorities.Rome will have its own ‘Piazza Martin Lutero’ in the centre of the city. The Italian capital approved an initiative proposed by the Union of the Seventh Day Adventist Churches back in 2009. Vatican authorities have not opposed the project, evangelical sources said. “Next September 16 at 17.00, will take place the naming of a square in Rome to the German reformer Martin Luther, close to the Colosseum”, Stefano Bogliolo, board member of the Italian...

    Why Are There So Many Churches ANSWERED ^ | 08/24/15 | Damon Whitsell
    When someone ask the question WHY ARE THERE SO MANY CHURCHES they usually are not interested in seeking an honest answer to the question. But rather they ask the question to go on to say (1) Christianity is divided. (2) God wants unity in His church not division (3) and their group is the Only True Christian Church. This is the case with the video above and the website WhyAreThereSoManyChurches.com that is produced by the hardline Church of Christ (CoC) organization World Video Bible School. This site seeks to examine that video and it’s exclusive claims and inferences in detail....
  • Day 2 Mega Crash: Dow Closes Down 530 Points

    That is a 3.12% loss in a single day. 5.18% today and yesterday. To put that in perspective between 750 billion and 1 trillion dollars in market value were just wiped out in two days in the U.S. alone. And it isn't even September yet. It is about to get really, really ugly. CNBC is reporting that China's market is now mirroring 1929, and we could see the Chinese market crash a further 9% over just the next 4-5 days. Again I'll ask you: is your treasure in Heaven or on earth? You can't eat your gold, your silver, or...
  • Witches, Lesbians and Liberal Pro-Aborts

    As part of a nationwide effort mobilizing thousands of pro-lifers, hundreds turned out in various metro Detroit locations to protest and pray in front of Planned Parenthood abortion mills. In the suburb of Ferndale, about 250 pro-lifers stood across a major thoroughfare in front of Planned Parenthood, where about a dozen abortion advocates held signs and went through their usual pro-abortion "My body, my choice" chants. Included were the usual assortment of witches and lesbians. The entire national effort was pulled together in response to the gruesome videos serving as proof that Planned Parenthood is engaged in a lucrative business...
  • Why Evangelicals Worship Trump

    With his brash demeanor, rough language, womanizing, and general Trump-ness, you’d think evangelicals would loathe Trump. You’d be wrong. Evangelicals were supposed to hate Donald Trump. His ostentatious wealth, his colorful language, his serial marriages—he was supposed to be the anti-Huckabee, the candidate least appealing to conservative Christians and their reality TV-unfriendly sensibilities. Then there was Trump’s cavalier discussion of his faith at the Ames, Iowa, Family Leadership Summit in July—where he said he doesn’t ask God for forgiveness. The Washington Examiner’s Byron York argued that comment would hurt him more than his disparagement of Senator John McCain’s war record....
