    Canada Free Press ^ | 03/24/19 | Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
    Academia has filled the heads of their students with pipe dreams of Marxism and communism, where everyone's problems will be solved by the benevolent government. Katie Hopkins warned Americans about the dangers of unrestricted Islamic immigration and described in frank detail how it has affected the U.K. and Europe, contributing to a social decline and an inimical atmosphere. Thanks to Barack Obama’s eight-year Islamophobic presidency, unrestricted immigration has spread to the United States. Michael Savage, the conservative talk show host, was banned from the U.K. for alleged hate speech which offended Islam. Few advocated on his behalf to protect his...
  • "When Good Things Happen to Bad People" (Sermon for the Third Sunday in Lent, on Luke 13:1-9)

    “When Good Things Happen to Bad People” (Luke 13:1-9) Did you see the pictures of the terrible flooding across Nebraska this past week? I used to live in Nebraska for several years. Lots of good people out that way, hard-working farmers and their families. Church-going people, too. Did you know that the state with the highest percentage of its population being Missouri Synod Lutherans is Nebraska? But now many Nebraskans are facing huge financial losses. Why did God let this happen? Or consider an even worse tragedy befalling innocent people. In the last few weeks, hundreds and hundreds of Christians...
  • Comedian Jim Jefferies Caught Distorting Words of Jewish Anti-Terrorism Activist Avi Yemini

    Israeli Cool ^ | 3/22/19 | Aussie Dave
    For those who don’t know, Avi Yemini is an anti-Islamization activist. He sees the plans among a minority of Muslims to establish an Islamic Caliphate with Sharia law all around the world, and he is fighting it tooth and nail, at a heavy personal toll. Now some of you may not like how Avi goes about it, or may not even agree it is an issue. But I am sure all of you would agree that he deserves to have his views represented fairly and honestly. Yesterday, another Aussie – comedian Jim Jefferies (whose comedy I have actually appreciated) –...
  • UK Refuses Iranian Christian Refugee Because “Christianity Is Too Violent”

    03/21/2019 6:27:49 PM PDT · by MNDude · 48 replies
    The UK refused entry by a Christian refugee from Iran noting on their decision that Christian “is too violent.” Meanwhile, the UK welcomed 400 ISIS fighters back home into the country in 2017. The U.K. government agency in charge of immigration has come under fire for denying political asylum to an Iranian convert to Christianity and explaining its decision on its contention that the religion is not peaceful. The Iranian man had said in his asylum petition that he converted to Christianity because it was a “peaceful” religion. The U.K. Home Office, which oversees immigration and passports, among other things,...
  • Sorry, President Trump. Here’s why American Jews aren’t abandoning the Democratic Party.

    The Washington Post ^ | March 22, 2019 | Michael Tesler
    President Trump has recently encouraged Jewish Americans to eschew their long-standing affiliation with the Democratic Party — a movement he and others refer to as “Jexodus.” He tweeted out claims that Jews are now leaving the Democrats over the party’s position on Israel. “Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party. We saw a lot of anti Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worsts & worse. There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people.” Elizabeth Pipko, Jexodus. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 12, 2019 The president then cited...
  • Pompeo suggests God sent Trump to save Israel

    NBC News ^ | March 21, 2019 | Alex Johnson
    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested in a televised interview Thursday that God may have sent President Donald Trump to Earth to protect Israel. Pompeo made the remarks in an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network, or CBN, in Jerusalem, where he visited the Western Wall with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. When the interview turned to Iranian aggression in the Middle East, Pompeo was asked whether he thought "President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this, just like Queen Esther, to help save the Jewish people from the Iranian menace." "As a Christian,...
  • Islamophilia: A Neurotic Reaction Against Truth

    American Thinker ^ | 3/20/19 | Jack Wisdom
    Pamela Geller recently reported on the murders of 120 Christians in Nigeria since February of this year. This is the tip of the iceberg of attacks on churches and Christians throughout the world by Islamists who are crying for the blood of Christian martyrs. Many leftwing atheists then call those who vigorously protest this bloodshed “Islamophobes.” In effect, they are allowing and even encouraging the militant Islamists to continue their violent acting out. The sympathy with Islamic jihadists is the necessary perverse outcome of a deep mental illness which I diagnose and call Islamophilia. This is the exaggerated love of...

    Flopping Aces ^ | 03-20-19 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Sharia Law may become the third rail of America politics if one is to judge by the suspension/cancellation for at least one episode of Judge Jeanine’s weekend Fox News show “Justice with Judge Jeanine. A cowardly Fox News has extended the protective canopy of political correctness apparently barring its hosts from asking the tough and obvious questions about a doctrine few non-Muslims are aware of and few Americans understand. As Stephen Battaglio of the Los Angeles Times reports: …the switch appears to be related to Pirro’s March 9 comment about Rep. Ilhan Omar ( D-Minn.), who wears a hijab, a...

    Only stupid or insecure or misguided people become followers of Jesus, right? That is an attitude one inevitably encounters while working for a U.S. senator or representative. But then there is Professor John Lennox, the Irish mathematician from Oxford university, who not only is incredibly intelligent but also among the world’s most effective apologists for Christianity. In this interview on Britain’s Premier Christian Radio, Lennox is asked by host Justin Brierley about Christians who fear having their faith challenged by non-believers and thus keep themselves in a sort of “Christian bubble” that is separate from the world around. “Yes, it...
  • Translators aim to bring Richard Dawkins’s books on atheism and evolution to a Muslim audience

    The Washington Post ^ | 03/13/19 | Julie Zauzmer
    In the introduction to his 2006 book “The God Delusion,” author Richard Dawkins boldly declares his goal: “If this book works as I intend, religious readers who open it will be atheists when they put it down.” It is a goal that has meant Dawkins’s books have courted controversy ever since. Now, a group of translators wants to get Dawkins’s books in front of a new group of religious readers: Muslim readers, in Muslim-majority countries where atheism is rare. “If you get enough people to talk about these ideas, if you convince people it’s okay to think about religion, to...

    Save all babies left vulnerable to the scourge and sin of abortion How many church goers filling Sunday pews at the United Church of Christ, United Methodist Church, Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, Episcopal Church, Unitarian Universalist Association, Christian Church (Disciple of Christ) and Unity Church realize that their pastors publicly stated their support of the abortion chain Planned Parenthood twice in the past two years? How many parents still take their babies to these pastors for Holy Baptism?

  • "The Fox and the Hen" (Sermon for the Second Sunday in Lent, on Luke 13:31-35)

    stmatthewbt.org ^ | March 17, 2019 | The Rev. Charles Henrickson
    “The Fox and the Hen” (Luke 13:31-35) Have you ever noticed how we sometimes describe people by comparing them to animals? For example, if you call someone a “pig,” that word carries with it some associations that are not particularly flattering. On the other hand, when a father calls his little girl “kitten,” he’s using that word as a term of endearment. Animal imagery abounds in our language: “like a bull in a china shop”; “like an ostrich with its head in the sand”; “as nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs.” These references to animals...

    Why People Troll By Philip Cottraux Imagine someone whose life never took off the way they wanted. For whatever reason, they are now stuck in a miserable situation; a dream career never came to be and they still live in mom’s basement. Their life is parasitic and they know it. The only thing that brings them any relief is tearing down others. Those who don’t create can only try to destroy. It’s a sad fact that goes all the way back to Cain and Abel. Abusive childhoods are breeding grounds for adult addictions. Traumatic events that occur while the brain...

    The Stream ^ | 3/13/19 | Dr. Michael Brown
    I was getting ready for my radio show on Monday when I spotted an announcement on the AskDrBrown YouTube channel. The entire channel — now, almost 1,600 videos — has been demonetized. By now, I’ve been used to the constantly changing standards of YouTube, not to mention the non-existent customer service. I’m talking about YouTube approving a video one day that speaks out against abortion while telling me the next day that a generic video where I answer caller questions about the Bible is not suitable for most advertisers. As I’ve written before, if it wasn’t so ridiculous, it would...
