  • Does Progressive atheism drive the hostility to guns and self-defense?

    Mike McDaniel is one of the best and most knowledgeable thinkers and writers when it comes to guns and the Second Amendment. That's why it's worth sitting up and taking notice when he revisits one of his own posts to discuss reader objections. I'll run you through what Mike has to say and then tell you why I agree with him. This is a long post, but I hope it's engaging enough to sustain your interest all the way through, so that you'll take the time to weigh in with your own opinions.It all started with a post entitled "Why...

    Dan Miller's Blog ^ | April 20, 2014 | Dan Miller
    As the United States of Obama allows less individual freedom, we need to reaffirm that democracy without individual freedom is tyranny. Until we reaffirm that, and refuse to accept tyranny, our "leaders" will continue to demand not only more of the same from us but also that more world "leaders" emulate them. Overview -- Our foreign and domestic problems are intertwined. The phrase "salami tactics" is well explained in the following video. When watching it, please consider that salami tactics can be used not only by international aggressors but by domestic aggressors as well -- by governments that want to destroy individual freedoms over the objections of their subjects...

    Our Lord is risen. Our God lives. The Shroud of Turin is speaking to all Christians now more than at any other time in our current history when so many of our religious freedoms are under attack by the US government. John C. Iannone is a Catholic writer and lecturer who is traveling throughout the South during our pre- Easter preparations to bring the story of the holy Shroud to us. One can only marvel at what this holy garment reveals to us about the suffering Jesus went through to be one of us and to suffer in such horrible...

    “Amen” (The Lord’s Prayer; 2 Corinthians 1:18-22)Alleluia! Christ is risen! (He is risen indeed! Alleluia!) Yes, “Alleluia” of course is the word of the day for Easter Day. We’ve been saving it up all Lent, and now today we finally get to let it loose. And what a day to do so! Our Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead on this day, winning the victory for us over death and the grave. If that doesn’t elicit an “Alleluia,” I don’t know what will. “Alleluia” is a Hebrew word originally, and it means “Praise ye the Lord.” And praise is...

So I get a twofer when I wish my readers “Happy Holidays!” ...whenever I’ve attended a Seder I’ve been impressed by the fact that Passover is a religious holiday dedicated to an idea that’s not really primarily religious: freedom. Yes, it’s about a particular historical event: the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. But the Seder ceremony makes clear that,... freedom itself is also being celebrated. Passover acknowledges that freedom (and liberty, not exactly the...

He teaches us to pray. That’s what he instructs us to do, that’s what he gives us an example of doing, and, even more than that, he prays for us. In particular, on this night Jesus instructs his disciples to pray for strength in the face of temptation. “Pray that you may not enter into temptation,” Jesus tells them...

  • Anti-Christian Bigots Target Clemson Football Program

    Something called the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has sent a demand letter to Clemson University regarding its football program. It appears head coach Dabo Swinney has had the unmitigated audacity to hire a team chaplain and have Bible studies. Three privately funded buses took the team to a church. Even more outrageous, three players spoke of their faith in Jesus Christ at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes breakfast. The real horror is that their teammates heard about that faith in person. FFRF is a meddling group from Wisconsin intent on eliminating faith from the public square. Interestingly there isn’t...

    Yesterday Brandeis University decided to withdraw an honorary degree they were to confer upon me next month during their Commencement exercises. I wish to dissociate myself from the university’s statement, which implies that I was in any way consulted about this decision. On the contrary, I was completely shocked when President Frederick Lawrence called me—just a few hours before issuing a public statement—to say that such a decision had been made. When Brandeis approached me with the offer of an honorary degree, I accepted partly because of the institution’s distinguished history; it was founded in 1948, in the wake of...

Lawrence Pintak, dean of the Washington State University’s Edward R.

    President Obama said violence against religious groups has "no place in our society" after an elderly man tied to hate groups allegedly opened fire Sunday and killed three people outside a Kansas City Jewish community center and retirement community. "Nobody should have to worry about their security when gathering with their fellow believers," Obama said at the opening of his remarks at the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast. "Nobody should have to fear for their safety when they go to pray." Obama said the tragedy was "all the more painful" because it came as Jews were preparing to celebrate Passover...

That’s the question that swirled around this same man later in the week when he stood before Pilate and the crowd and when he went to the cross to suffer and to die. Who is this?

    Overall, the acquittal of Tim Burton and the judge's rulings on the case were a victory on two fronts and maybe not so much on a third. The judge ruled that a few tweets, even intemperate and even relating to a Muslim person, cannot be construed as harassment. He clearly said that the Harassment Act was intended for entirely different situations from this one, like stalking somebody or shouting through his letterbox. He also, if not explicitly accepted, took into account the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya. This can be a turning point for the counterjihad movement. Muslims are generally...

    A large budget, plenty of FX, and familiar biblical source material can’t make up for an awful script, and an overall twisted concept from helmer Darren Aronofsky. Ginned up by the controversy gained by its less than faithful adherence to the bible story, Paramount/Regency should see brisk business, at least at first. The Noah saga comprises Genesis 5:28 through 9:29, and runs around 2300 words. There is little dialog, of course, and it is all spoken by God—inexplicably called the “Creator”—in this movie. Yes, Aronofsky is an atheist, but a Creator with supernatural powers sounds a lot like God to...

    The recent ousting of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich highlights not just the huge cultural divide on the gay marriage debate, but our nation's dangerous misunderstanding of the term "tolerance." Tolerance is an absolute necessity in any free society. As defined by Merriam-Webster, tolerance is the willingness to accept feelings, habits, or beliefs that are different from your own. As we live in a society of more than 300 million diverse individuals, this is an essential nature to ensure domestic tranquility.

    Tuesday, April 08, 2014 Islam Is What Happens When Civilization Loses Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Saudi Arabia and Qatar aren't talking to each other. Syria and Turkey are shooting at each other. Not only are the Shiites and Sunnis killing each other in Syria, but the Sunni groups have been killing each other for some time now. There are even two or three Al Qaedas fighting each other over which of them is the real Al Qaeda while, occasionally, denying that they are the real Al Qaeda. There's something about Syria that splits down everything...

    Those who are bent on making their own unauthorized changes to the liturgy or who otherwise promote or tolerate various liturgical abuses often fail to appreciate how such an endeavor can constitute grave sin. I know this because some have accused me of making a mountain out of a molehill for my opposition to various liturgical abuses. Dr. Germain Grisez explains: "There are many reasons why it is wrong for priests intentionally to make unauthorized liturgical changes. Two are especially important. First, such changes sometimes embody or imply deviations from Catholic faith; even when they do not, they often omit...

    There is no shortage of heresies these days. If you want to adopt some blasphemous, perverted, fun house mirror reflection of Christianity, you will find a veritable buffet of options. You can sift through all the variants and build your own little pet version of the Faith. It’s Ice Cream Social Christianity: make your own sundae! (Or Sunday, as it were.) And, of all the heretical choices, probably the most common — and possibly the most damaging — is what I’ve come to call the Nice Doctrine. The propagators of the Nice Doctrine can be seen and heard from anytime...
  • Saudi employer stitch the mouth and eye shut on his Christian foreign maid

    HEARTLESS: GIRL’S MOUTH AND LEFT EYE SEWN BY HER MUSLIM BOSS FOR PROFESSING HER SALVATION IN JESUS CHRIST This young lady had her mouth and left eye sewn with plastic threads for professing her faith. The young girl, who was a servant in Saudi Arabia professed that Jesus Christ was her personal savior. This did not go well with her master who ordered his men to sow her mouth so that she will never say that again. Her left eye was sewn too, as a warning. This is the highest level of religious intolerance in the Muslim world. Let us...

    For the U.S., Jerusalem Has No Connection with Israel By Julio Severo A recent Jerusalem Post article notes, “Since the founding of Israel, U.S. presidents have declined to state a position on the status of Jerusalem.” For the U.S. government and its leftist Christian presidents, Jerusalem has no country. Yet, why are even U.S. conservative presidents included in this negative picture?             For God’s Word, those born in Jerusalem are always born in Israel. But why does the United States, a nation founded on Christian principles and capable of providing great leadership to the world, choose to ignore Israel’s special...

    The New York Times published a fairly straightforward story about Pope Francis’ first Urbi et Orbi message. With this paragraph: "Easter is the celebration of the resurrection into heaven of Jesus, three days after he was crucified, the premise for the Christian belief in an everlasting life. In urging peace, Francis called on Jesus to ”change hatred into love, vengeance into forgiveness, war into peace.” Yes, the professionals at the New York Times are confused about what Easter marks. If you were satirizing the poor state of the Grey Lady’s understanding of religion, this would seem over-the-top. And yet it’s...

    Snip What You Can Do It is important that people give Mozilla pushback--and a lot of it--because the less people suffer the consequences of this kind of behavior, the more it will be invited in the future. You want Christians to experience a new and even worse persecution than what they're facing now? Do nothing. You want to fight back? Here's what you can do . . .   1) Mozilla has a web page where you can leave feedback on its Firefox browser. THAT WEB PAGE IS HERE. At the time of this writing, the feedback in the last...
