  • Democrats Will Impose A Religious Test On SCOTUS Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

    The Federalist ^ | July 10, 2018 | John Daniel Davidson
    The American Left equates sincere religious faith with bigotry. That’s why Kavanaugh will face a religious test from Senate Democrats in his confirmation hearings. n his remarks Monday night upon accepting President Trump’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh said this: “My judicial philosophy is straightforward. A judge must be independent, and must interpret the law, not make the law. A judge must interpret statutes as written, and a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent.” You’d think that would be enough to settle the question of whether Kavanaugh is fit to...
  • Potential Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh Has A Troubling Record On Religious Liberty

    If Kavanaugh's views were adopted by other courts, then other frivolous claims attacking religion in the public square would have a better chance of being heard in federal courts. Ed Whelan of Bench Memos yesterday defended Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s jurisprudence in a host of areas, including religious liberty. I have great respect for Whelan. I have long been an admirer of his blog, checking it daily. But I fear he may be either working too hastily under time pressure, or blinded by his friendship with Kavanaugh, and in any case is mistaken in his defense of the judge’s religious-liberty jurisprudence....

    An Alaska law firm has been accused of violating a city's nondiscrimination ordinance after it provided legal representation to a Christian women's shelter accused of violating the same ordinance. The Anchorage Equal Rights Commission filed a formal complaint against Brena, Bell & Clarkson, charging the law firm with committing "unlawful discriminatory acts or practices" in violation of a city ordinance regarding sex and gender identity. Its alleged crime is punishable by fines and possible jail time. In early 2018, Kevin Clarkson was asked to represent the Downtown Hope Center, a faith-based nonprofit that provides free shelter for homeless women and...

    Freedom from religion was not what those who fled the oppression and persecution of European monarchies sought and not what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they wrote the Constitution. Yet the Freedom of Religion Foundation seeks to impose its values and restrict the free exercise of religion guaranteed in the First Amendment. Its latest targets are high school football camps in Arkansas where presumably you are allowed take a knee to protest our racist flag but cannot take a knee in thanks to the Creator the Declaration of Independence notes endowed us with our unalienable rights: It’s not...

    Bible Gateway ^ | July 3, 2018 | Philip Yancey
    The shift in American society from admiring Christians to fearing and criticizing them provides an opportunity for self-reflection. How have we been presenting the message we believe in? Might there be a more grace-filled way?Some want to focus on personal morality and leave public morality to secular politicians. Others seek ways to guide the broader culture while still communicating grace. Rather than propose a single path, I will instead make some observations and suggestions for Christians to consider as we interact with a world that does not always share our views.Clashes Between Christ and Culture Are UnavoidableJohn Howard Yoder recounted...

    Wise Welcome Justice for Americans and welcome to well-meaning foreigners who come as blessing. Not open borders and amnesty, but “wise welcome” that we find in Scripture, including the embrace of Ruth and Rahab, and Nehemiah leading a nation in the rebuilding of its walls and God-honoring culture.

    Mona Charen is a well-known conservative author, columnist and speech writer who has spoken out about the dangers of modern feminism and the transgender identity push on children. But what many might not know about her is that at one point in her childhood, she wanted people to call her "Timmy.""I shudder to think what would have happened if I had come along a little later in history," Charen told The Christian Post during an interview this week about her book, Sex Matters: How Modern Feminism Lost Touch With Science, Love and Common Sense.Charen, a senior fellow at the Washington, D.C.-based...

    The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to hear an appeal from county officials in North Carolina who argue they should be allowed to give a prayer at the start of public meetings. The Rowan Country Board of Commissioners had asked the court to reverse the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling, which found the board’s prayer ritual violated the Constitution’s ban on government establishing one religion.

    Medium Corporation ^ | 01/22/18 | Matthew Schultz
    Over the years, I’ve had several Catholic friends and converts ask why I ultimately didn’t convert to their denomination. During my first two years of college, I spent a significant amount of time with Catholics, including at the (then?) US Opus Dei headquarters in NYC. I attended these gatherings with a good friend, who eventually decided to convert from Evangelicalism. I came close to converting, but ultimately decided against it. This has surprised some Catholics. I suspect this is because the standard narrative is that Protestants, especially Evangelicals, are crossing the Tiber in great droves. Statistically, the narrative isn’t quite...

    The Rapture is an event many Christians believe marks the return of the son of God – and all the believers will disappear from Earth up to Heaven in the "twinkling of an eye". But this happens after a tribulation period – seven years that are first of peace and unity around the world and then three and a half years of war and global pandemics. And Steve Fletcher, who monitors events that could signal the end of mankind, believes the Rapture starts today. He said: “Time is up and all hell breaks loose after June 21, 2018.” He explained...
  • Younger people are less religious than older ones in many countries, especially in the US & Europe

    Pew Research ^ | 06/13/18 | Stephanie Kramer and Dalia Fahmy
    For some time now, surveys have shown that younger Americans are less likely than older adults to attend church, believe in God, or say religion is important to them. Such a religion age gap doesn’t exist in every country, but a new Pew Research Center study shows that it is far from unique to the United States. In fact, in 46 countries around the world, adults under age 40 are less likely to say religion is “very important” in their lives than are older adults; the opposite is true in only two countries. In 58 countries, there are no significant...

    Last month, Professor Bret Weinstein gave testimony before Congress on his experience at Evergreen State College and what he believes it means for our future as a nation. Weinstein posted video of his testimony on YouTube last week (see below). Here’s a bit of what he said: Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of the day that 50 Evergreen students–students that I had never met–disrupted my class, accusing me of racism and demanding my resignation. I tried to reason with them. I felt no fear because I knew that, whatever my failings might be, bigotry was not among them… The...
  • Study: AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’ More Theologically Accurate Than 96% Of Modern Worship Songs-SATIRE

    U.S.—A recent survey performed by CCLI confirmed that AC/DC’s hard rock classic “Highway to Hell” is more theologically accurate than 96% of the songs that most worship bands play on any given Sunday. The study examined over 800 songs and compared their theology to the Scriptures, and found that the Australian rock group’s 1979 classic was “significantly more accurate” than over 96% of them. “While modern worship songs tend to contain little theology, an anemic view of sin, and a poor understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit, ‘Highway to Hell’ has a very biblical view of the doctrine...

    After the attack at the Santa Fe High School, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick denounced a loss of faith and religion in society. While the news media puts the lives of these mass public killers under a microscope, collecting any information that can be gleaned about their childhoods from their family and friends and social media history, researchers have ignored the religious views of these killers. What is most shocking is how few of these killers appear to be religious, let alone Christian. Just 16 percent have any type of religious affiliation at the time of their attacks, with a...

    Dating back to Genesis and to some of the most primordial of myths, man’s history is replete with cautionary tales created to impart wisdom to any misguided soul seeking to make a lesser god of himself or his species. Be it the fruit first plucked by Eve from the biblical Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, or Icarus’ hubristic flight on waxen wings, or the fable of the gamine Pandora’s curiosity, the moral was clear: Not all knowledge was meant for the finite minds of us mortals, nor should we fly too close to the sun lest we perish....

    Nothing rounds out the day like a good “America in decline” poll. I don’t think is evidence of decline per se, of course. I’m not religious myself. But it’s hard not to notice that tribalism, political and otherwise, seems to be expanding as religious identity weakens. And that many of those substitute tribal identities are underwhelming or obnoxious.

    Over the past several years, the Social Justice Warrior movement has swelled to become a formidable beast in the US. Anyone who does not follow their strict doctrine is lambasted with terms such as “fascist”, “racist”, “mansplainer“, “deplorable” and an abundance of other dehumanizing insults. SJWs have corrupted academia, the media and politics. However, this isn’t the first time America has had to deal with such a corrosive ideology. The wave of Evangelicals that came during the last part of last century was (and still partially is) extremely similar to the SJW movement. Just to be clear, being a believer...
