    And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them unto me. Deuteronomy 10:4 The BLM cult is getting stronger and more powerful in America. This is just a militant extension of the Eart Worshiping New Age cult which Dems have been following for decades, but this one is all consuming. For a young atheistic girl in search of purity this one is the perfect religion since it has...
  • The New Religion Of The Woke Left Is A Faith Without Atonement

    The Federalist ^ | June 30, 2020 | Tripp Parker
    To 'pay' for their own sins, the zealots of the Woke Left's new religion are on a mission to sacrifice the reputations and livelihoods of others.> Much has been made of the similarities the “woke” left’s political program resembles a new religion. Columbia University linguist John McWhorter made the point in his discussion with evolutionary biologist Bret Weinstein, James Lindsay describes how “wokeness” resembles a cult, and Hans Fiene wrote a satirical article in The Federalist describing the religious program in the “Cathedral of Blessed Wokery.”The woke Left’s program does seem to resemble a religion. This should not, however, be...

    The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that barring religious institutions from a general state program violates the U.S. Constitution. The ruling was 5-4, with the conservative majority finding Montana violated the First Amendment when it excluded religious schools from a state scholarship program.

    Statement on Social Justice ^ | September 10 , 2018 | Samuel Sey
    Social justice was the basis for stripping rights away from Jews in the Khmelnytsky Uprising. Social justice was the basis for discrimination against Jews in the Soviet Union. Social justice was the basis for the holocaust in Nazi Germany. Social justice is the basis for South Africas initiative to strip property rights from White farmers. Social justice is the basis for stripping a pre-born babys right to life.

    First there was Michael Moores Planet of the Humans, then came Bjorn Lomborgs False Alarm, and now Michael Schellenbergers Apocalypse Never. All three authors sound the common theme that the hyper-green environmental activists who have captured, politicized, and monetized the concern for the environment have, as Lomborg explains, created a false climate alarm which has costs us trillions, hurts the poor, and fails to fix the planet. To varying degrees, all three authors come from a strong environmental activist background, which observation makes their public revelations even more noteworthy. Planet of the Humans, the recent film produced by Michael Moore,...

    Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband of the Civil Rights Division issued the following statement in response to the federal court ruling today regarding religious liberty in New York City and New York State:"Today’s federal court decision is a win for religious freedom and the civil liberties of New Yorkers. Government cannot discriminate by protecting free speech and the right to assemble while threatening or limiting religious exercise – it must protect all rights guaranteed under the First Amendment. The court’s decision is consistent with positions and arguments made by the United States Department of Justice in similar filings and...

    Anti-black racism is the new religion. It cant be questioned or studied. Its accepted on faith. We ascribe a power to it that is greater than Gods. If anti-black racism is against you, how can you succeed? Racism is in control of black peoples destiny. Racism explains everything. If you believe 100 shootings and a dozen murders in a weekend are a bigger problem than police brutality, youre a racist. If you think Kaepernick sabotaged his NFL career, youre a racist. If you argue anti-black racism is a real problem and the best way to combat it is through promoting...

    Christianity steeped in neighborly love ended slavery and defeated Jim Crow. The gospel, not the BLM movement, already has what we need to heal the nation. As churches across America restart in-person services, Christians and their pastors are feeling the heat. The “heat,” however, is not from the lack of air conditioning in the sanctuary as things get hot and humid — it’s the pressure to “say something” in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.Yet just as Christians shouldn’t feel obligated to issue “official church statements” every time sin is committed (there would be little time for anything else),...
  • John McWhorter: This Far-Left Ideology Were Seeing Is A Religion

    As Ive said before, academic John McWhorter is someone who has frequently strayed from ideological orthodoxy on the question of race and policing. For instance, last year he gave an interview on the 5 year anniversary of the death of Mike Brown which pointed out that a lot of what we initially heard about the case turned out not to be true. Over the weekend, McWhorter was interviewed by Bret Weinstein for his podcast show. The two discussed the current Black Lives Matter movement and the far-left ideology that seems to have migrated from college campuses to Americas city streets....

    The Department of Justice today filed a statement of interest in a Colorado federal court supporting the First Amendment religious freedom claims of High Plains Harvest Church and its pastor. The statement of interest is part of Attorney General William P. Barr's April 27, 2020 initiative directing Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, Eric Dreiband, and the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, Matthew Schneider, to review state and local policies to ensure that civil liberties are protected during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Especially during a crisis like this, the ability of people of faith to be able to exercise...
  • Angry Arminian Mob Pulls Down Statue Of John Calvin

    PITTSBURGH, PAA rowdy gang of angry, riled-up Arminian believers gathered to pull down a statue of Reformer John Calvin standing in front of Calvin Reformed Bible College & Seminary, authorities confirmed Friday. The band of Wesleyan troublemakers brought a rope, lassoed it around the neck of the stone likeness of Calvin, and yanked it down while yelling rallying cries like Down with limited atonement! Youll never take our free will! and For Servetus! Mob members then stomped on the statue and spray-painted crude Arminian slogans on the downed Reformer, according to police reports. We encourage all citizens to stay indoors...

    Amidst the loneliness and suffering caused by the extended lockdowns, Americans have an opportunity to reconnect with their Creator. It seems to be part of human nature to postpone, for as long as possible, a realistic appraisal of looming catastrophe. At the start of the U.S. Civil War, both sides were so certain of a short, bloodless conflict that the first battle at Manassas was attended by hundreds of holiday picnickers from nearby Washington. Some sipped champagne, hoping to catch a glance what they assumed would be fleeting hostilities.The initial U.S. response to COVID-19 followed a similar pattern, as many...

    George Washington dictated a "talk" to the Cherokee Nation, August 29, 1796: Beloved Cherokees, The wise men of the United States meet together once a year, to consider what will be for the good of all their people ... I have thought that a meeting of your wise men once or twice a year would be alike useful to you ... I now send my best wishes to the Cherokees, and pray the Great Spirit to preserve them. Twelve of the original 13 states sent delegates to Philadelphia. (Rhode Island boycotted the Convention.) Instead of rewriting the Articles of Confederation,...

    Christian leaders who were quick to break social distancing guidelines to stand with Black Lives Matter protesters appear loathe to fight back against the ban on church services. American Christians saw something these past two weeks we’re not used to: People standing for their beliefs in the face of coronavirus.In cities and towns nationwide, millions crowded streets and parks, marching, singing and for some after dark, rioting. Many had been sheltered in place for nearly three months, carefully avoiding their neighbors, watching Netflix, wearing pajamas, and when outside, fleeing into busy streets for fear of unmasked joggers.But this — this...

    Why did so many evangelicals turn out to vote for Donald Trump, a serial philanderer with questionable conservative credentials who seems to defy Christian values with his every utterance? To a reporter like Sarah Posner, who has been covering the religious right for decades, the answer turns out to be far more intuitive than one might think. In this taut inquiry, Posner digs deep into the radical history of the religious right to reveal how issues of race and xenophobia have always been at the movements core, and how religion often cloaked anxieties about perceived threats to a white, Christian...

    The religion of anti-racism proved itself the only force in American discourse powerful enough to end the lockdown.Every once in a while, something happens that is simultaneously absolutely amazing and perfectly predictable. This past week, one of those instances occurred as months of brutal lockdown meant to fight the Chinese virus melted away on the streets of our nations cities. In the wake of the brutal police killing of George Floyd, the only thing more powerful in the progressive mind than stopping the virus emerged. Racism. For many Americans, especially among the affluent, celebrity, and opinion-making portion of the population,...

    After four days of civil unrest in Chicago and its suburbs, Gov. J.B. Pritzker and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle on Tuesday turned to religious and community leaders to urge protesters to channel anger over the death of George Floyd toward efforts for criminal justice reform and economic development in minority communities. Whats very important to me is that we establish an agenda an agenda thats led, in part, by the very peaceful protesters that are out on the streets, that were there protesting last night, the night before and the night before, the folks who were there...

    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:Section 1.  Policy.  (a)  Religious freedom, America’s first freedom, is a moral and national security imperative.  Religious freedom for all people worldwide is a foreign policy priority of the United States, and the United States will respect and vigorously promote this freedom.  As stated in the 2017 National Security Strategy, our Founders understood religious freedom not as a creation of the state, but as a gift of God to every person and a right that is fundamental...

    President Donald Trump went to church Monday. That isnt exactly accurate. There was no chorus of worship, no corporate prayer, no holy reverence, no gathering of believers, and thus no church. Just the leader of the free world and the charred, boarded-up shell of a building, marred with fire at the hands of mutinous rogues. Amid nationwide protests and riots over the needless death of George Floyd at the hands of dishonorable officers, the president stood outside the vandalized historic structure. St. Johns Episcopal Church isnt the only desolate house of worship today. Church buildings across America stand as empty...
