    David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) announced Wednesday that they are filing a new motion in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to request the removal of Judge William Orrick in the lawsuit brought against them by Planned Parenthood, pointing to his ties to Planned Parenthood. According to Daleiden’s petition, Judge Orrick has "an ongoing and longstanding professional relationship with one of the named Plaintiffs.” Orrick is a founder and officer of the Good Samaritan Family Resource Center (GSFRC), an organization that partners with Planned Parenthood and had a Planned Parenthood clinic incorporated on its premises while...

    I’m approaching my 82nd birthday, and my daughter will occasionally suggest that modernity is perplexing to me because I’m from prehistoric times. As such, it points to one of the unavoidable problems of youth—namely, the temptation to think that today’s behavioral standards have always been. Let’s look at a few of the differences between yesteryear and today. One of those differences is the treatment of women. There are awesome physical strength differences between men and women. To create and maintain civil relationships between the sexes is to drum into boys, starting from very young ages, that they are not to...

    Rep. Gohmert said that the Alabama Senate race represents “a battle for the soul of the country.” Bannon asked Gohmert, “Why is the toughest thing he’s been against the Republican establishment?” Gohmert responded, “They would rather be in the minority and go along to get along. They prefer smooth sailing rather than standing up for what’s right.” advertisement The Texas congressman responded, “You know, I know — and, boy, does Roy Moore know — that standing up for what’s right comes at a heavy cost and Roy Moore has really paid it. He’s been through absolute hell.”

    Dr. Sproul is not improving as we had hoped and so these next few days are critical. He has a fever today due to the infection he has been fighting. Moreover, he is not decreasing in his reliance on the ventilator to support his breathing. Your prayers in behalf of Dr. Sproul are deeply appreciated. They mean so much to the family and all who love R.C. We will keep you informed here on the blog and on Facebook and Twitter if his condition changes.

    No man can serve two masters, the Bible teaches, but Mike Pence is giving it his all....that he recognizes the absurdity of his situation; that he knows just what sort of man he’s working for; that while things may look bad now, there is a grand purpose at work here, a plan that will manifest itself in due time.

    Volunteers have criticised the Red Cross charity after receiving a communication telling them to remove crucifixes from the walls of their branches as the organisation looks to become more secular. The Belgian branches of the international aid organisation received an email from the Provincial Committee of the Red Cross in Ličge to remove all crucifixes. André Rouffart, president of the Red Cross in Verviers, said: “We were asked to respect the principles of the Red Cross”, and not to distinguish between race or religious belief 7sur7 reports. Mr. Rouffart said there had been pushback from volunteers and other members on...

    "God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son" (Heb. 1:1-2). Man can’t discover God on his own; God must reveal Himself to man. Since the beginning of time, man has deceived himself by thinking he can discover God through various religions. But in reality, man lives in a box enclosed within the walls of time and space. God is outside the box, and man senses He's there but can't get to Him. Each new religion is but another...

    A prominent Anglican cleric and gay rights campaigner known for contentious gestures has urged believers to pray for Prince George — age 4, and third in line to the throne — to find the love “of a fine young gentleman” when he grows up so as to advance the cause of same-sex marriage in church. Coming just days after Prince Harry — George’s uncle, and fifth in line — announced his engagement to Meghan Markle, a divorced American actress, the suggestion by the Very Rev. Kelvin Holdsworth seemed to illuminate once more the role of royal romance in Britain’s imagination...

    Just over a month ago, an organization sent the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority an advertisement it was ready to pay good money to post on the backs and sides of Metro buses. The ad used only four words: "Find the Perfect Gift." These words were spelt out in the main message of the proposed ad as well as in a web address ( printed beside it. Two of the words also appeared in a social-media hashtag printed at the bottom of the ad (#PerfectGift). Now had this advertisement been produced by Macy's, Nordstrom or Target -- to draw traffic...

    Two American tourists have been held for "inappropriate behaviour" after sharing photos of them baring their buttocks at a famous Bangkok temple, Thai police said Wednesday, as the ruling junta cracks down on insults to Buddhism. The pair, Joseph and Travis Dasilva, both 38, uploaded pictures on November 24 of their bared backsides at Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn) to Instagram.

    CURE e-mail | November 28, 2017 | Star Parker
    The avalanche of sexual harassment claims, with new ones pouring forth daily, leads me to the wisdom of George Washington's observation in his farewell address in 1796: "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. ... And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be managed without religion." You may say, "There you go again, Star. Waving your Bible." But is there a better answer for dealing with this problem? Society, all human life, is guided by rules. The only question before us is: What are the rules...

  • Swedish Church OKs Gender-Neutral Worship, Neuters Holy Father

    National Economics Editorial ^ | Nov 28, 2017 | John Whitaker
    Antje Jackelén, Bishop of Lund and head of Sweden’s Church, now says that God the Holy Father may be worshiped in a gender neutral way. This means that pastors are no longer obliged to pray “in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit” but can substitute the classical liturgical incantation for something like “in the name of God, the Trinity”. Likewise, pastors and other politically correct worshipers may replace pronoun references to the Holy Father with “hen”, a gender neutral Swedish pronoun. This would be somewhat akin to translate the English Bible to say “and It/They...

    Daily Mail ^ | Nov 27, 2017 | NIKKI SCHWAB
    On Monday, the Trump family debuted their holiday card, which wishes Americans a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, instead of the generic, more politically correct, 'Happy Holidays.' That's different from last year's card sent out by President Obama, which included a family photo and wished Americans a 'joyous holiday season.' The Trump card is signed by President Trump, first lady Melania Trump and even 11-year-old Barron and was displayed in the White House's 'Bookseller's' area, as the Christmas decorations were unveiled today. The Merry Christmas card keeps Trump's pledge to 'say Merry Christmas again' when he campaigned. He...

    Life is funny. As suckling babes, the most luxurious thing we could ever imagine is the nurturing warmth of our mothers. But as we age, a whole host of desires and ambitions begin to take shape in our minds. For the most part, whether we want to admit it or not, those ambitions generally center around wealth and social status. These things replace the womb as the object of our desires, and give rise to an almost insatiable desire for more. As we sit down with our families this Thanksgiving, perhaps it is time for us to put things into...

    'Since the Torah is the basic fabric of reality it cannot be hidden forever'! Scientists are coming closer and closer to the Bible, as more evidence arises of its accuracy, according to a report in Breaking Israel News. Science now supports the biblical account of the first man and woman in that it recognizes “Mitrochondrial Eve” and “Y-Chromosomal Adams,” the report said. BIN reports end times expert Rabbi Pinchas Winston describes the developing scientific view as “signal of redemption.” “During the exile there was great Hester Panim – a hiding of God’s face,” he told BIN. “As a result the...

    As the outrage, sadness and shock of the Las Vegas and Sutherland Springs Baptist Church shootings fade, we find ourselves back in a spot where a familiar political and cultural battle has been occurring. On one side you have the anti-gun crowd, Democrats primarily, supported by an overwhelming majority of mainstream news people. The opposing side gives us the Second Amendment/pro-gun community, Republicans primarily, supported by the NRA and, besides Fox News, only a handful of conservative websites and bloggers like me. In my humble opinion, this debate goes back to religion, or rather the start of the removal of...

    The notion espoused by some in Christendom today that the United States was once occupied by an almost entirely God-fearing population is largely a myth. There has been and always will be a great deal of irreligious people in America, as there is in every place on this Earth. Historically speaking, the presence of a large population of atheists and agnostics is an important sign that a society is, at least to a large extent, free. Conversely, absolute uniformity of any kind is typically only accompanied by a tyrannical government. In that sense—and in that sense alone—the lack of religion...

    Fearing that America was one step closer to becoming a theocracy with the opening of the privately-funded Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C., on Thursday and Friday, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today hyped the supposed “controversy” swirling around the institution, even claiming that a “cloud of suspicion” hung over the building as it opened its doors. “Coming up on CBS This Morning, I’ll tell you why this museum is generating some controversy. It’s just a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol,” warned correspondent Chip Reid on Thursday. Introducing the segment minutes later, co-host Charlie Rose emphasized that the...
