    Militant Mob of Homosexuals Targets Repent America Kerry got it wrong. There aren't 2 Americas. There are 3. The third America is that of strong, uncompromising men of principle, like Mark Marcavage, who believe in absolutes, a doctrine that is now threatened by our legal system. Fox News' O'Reilly, for example, calls himself a conservative and a Catholic. Yet he chides the MA diocese for not accepting homosexual adoption, at variance with 2 millenia of church doctrine, Biblical doctrine that millions of protestants and catholics accept today around the world. O'Reilly is blind to the fact that Biblical doctrine tallies...

    Life and Liberty Ministries This years outreach at the Philadelphia Outfest went quite differently from last years event. We had a tremendous six-plus hours of ministry without interuption. The police worked with Repent America's Michael Marcavage to ensure that the outreach participants would be unmolested by some of the more hostile hearers. The preaching was powerful and thousands of the celebrants went home having heard the powerful message of salvation. Pray for those who stood around to hear the preaching, those who we had conversations with, and and those who were convicted by the large presence of Gospel messages on...

    A group of Christian protesters claims a "militant homosexual mob" threatened them with physical violence at Philadelphia's Gay Pride parade, a city-funded event that included simulated sex acts on some of the floats. Repent America, a local organization that saw four of its members acquitted of criminal charges after a similar confrontation last fall, says one float at the parade Sunday featured women, partially dressed in tight leather, bending over with their buttocks exposed and being spanked with hands, whips, and other objects. "It is absolutely astounding that this type of illegal behavior is being permitted by city officials and...

A federal judge declined an emergency request to compel Frenchtown Elementary School to allow 8-year-old Olivia Turton to sing "Awesome God" at the Friday night show, but allowed the lawsuit to go forward. School officials in the western New Jersey community had said the performance would be inappropriate at a school event. A message seeking comment from a school board attorney about the judge's ruling was not immediately returned. The decision by U.S....

It simply reads: "John 3-16" But someone found the Bible verse offensive and now the state is deciding whether she can keep the plate. "The verse in the Bible says 'For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son,' " says Jane Milhans. To her, John 3:16 is a message of love, and a great vanity plate. But now, someone has told the state Jane's plate is offensive. "My first reaction was I was in shock," she said. Jane says she's had...

    Pro-Family Leader Demands Apology; Christian Group Pursues Legal Redress - The American Family Association of Pennsylvania is demanding that a judge apologize to members of a Christian group who were arrested during an outreach to homosexuals for comparing the street ministers to Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. Meanwhile, though acquitted, the Christian activists may be heading back into court. Last week, Judge Pamela Dembe of the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas dropped all charges against adult defendants belonging to the Christian group Repent America, who were arrested last fall for witnessing during a homosexual pride event in Philadelphia....

    (Still, One Group Concerned by Dembe's Comparison with KKK, Nazis) The Philadelphia judge who on Thursday dismissed "hate crime" charges against a group of Christians is being praised for her decision. But one pro-family group in that state is a bit miffed by a statement the judge made in explaining the rationale behind the ruling. Calling the charges against the group of Christian demonstrators "ludicrous" and an "abuse of power," family advocates are expressing their pleasure about this week's developments in the "Philly 5" case. Four members of the Philadelphia-based group Repent America who had been arrested in October faced...

After watching video footage of the event, Common Pleas Judge Pamela Dembe said that while the protesters' message that homosexuality is a sin clearly enraged the crowd, the bullhorn-wielding demonstrators did not incite violence. "We are one of the very few countries that protect unpopular speech. And that means that Nazis can March in Skokie, Ill. ... That means that the Ku Klux Klan can march where they wish to," Dembe...
