    The Washington National Cathedral, in its commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, has deliberately and carefully excluded evangelicals from their multi-religious commemoration. The service includes Buddhists, Hindus, and Muslims, but not evangelical Christians. Mind you, I am opposed to interfaith services in any shape or form and that is why, in a previous blog, I stated that I was relieved that the mayor of New York spared us the agony of watching the One, True God of the Bible “worshipped” alongside false gods.

    When politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn arrived in France last week, cleared of a New York sex scandal, he returned home smiling despite facing a frosty reception. Maybe he should have gone to Mexico, instead. Pay attention Anthony Weiner, Tiger Woods, Brett Favre and others caught up in public, sexual indiscretions. A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Thursday shows 57 percent of Mexicans would be either very likely or somewhat likely to tolerate the sexual indiscretions of stars and politicians. They were followed by Belgians at 55 percent. In the United States, the tolerance factor was 48 percent. France, in fact, was way...
  • A Brief Reflection on the Catholic Definition of Tolerance

    Brethren: peace and good to all of you in the name of Jesus. A few posts ago I formulated a Catholic definition of tolerance derived from biblical and theological first principles. The definition was as follows: Tolerance is that good habit – that is, the virtue – through which the Catholic Christian actively and consciously loves his neighbor, especially when the neighbor lives in grave sin, by avoiding judgment and showing him the same mercy the Lord shows us for our sins, as we choose the right means to eliminate or ameliorate the evil incurred in this world by...
  • Group of psychiatrists wants to redefine pedophilia to promote tolerance

    When I wrote about an objectionable spread of photographs in Paris Vogue – a spread that featured 10-year-old fashion model Thylane Blondeau styled in provocative ways — I fretted that such a magazine feature might, in some way, normalize the concept of sexual attraction to minors: "It’s often said, but bears repeating, that the TV, magazine and advertising images we absorb train our minds as to what is considered attractive — and, yes, specifically sexually attractive — in our culture. So, what does a magazine feature like this say? That it’s OK, even encouraged, to look at a child in...

    On June 26th, the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.was the latest church to be used for the promotion of syncretism—the attempted union of different religions. The idea was that “Christian” ministers, Jewish Rabbis, and Muslim Imams would co-lead a service in “Christian” churches around America using a multi-faith liturgy. Sadly, 70 other churches across America signed on to do the same thing. The event was organized by a group called “Faith Shared.” It comes as no shock that the service was designed to promote “religious tolerance.” This is indeed a major step forward in promoting what I believe to be...

    And in fact, you do LOVE all the brothers throughout Macedonia. Yet we urge you, brothers, to do so more and more. 1 Thes 4:10 It is time to stop tolerating tolerance. Tolerance has become the number one tactic for the commie left to promote their agenda. Whether they are promoting homosexuality, abortion, immigration, islam or the worship of the earth everything is wrapped around tolerance and their manipulation of the language through social morality. To become a perfect person in the liberal world you have to become more tolerant than every other person while anybody who’s not tolerant is...

    When Ron Chernow was travelling the country last year to talk about his new biography of George Washington, he was often asked about Washington’s 1790 letter to the Jews of Newport, R.I. — the one that famously promised that the United States government would give “to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.” “There were very few speeches that I made where people didn’t ask about that letter,” Chernow recalled. “I can vouch for the fact that there’s tremendous curiosity out there.” He’s curious, too. Even though Chernow spent six years reading through Washington’s papers to research his book, and...

    Koran-burning pastor Terry Jones was mobbed by protesters as he made his way to the Arab International Festival. Scuffles broke out and six people were arrested as Jones walk down the street toward the festival with some of his supporters in Dearborn, Michigan. The controversial Florida Pastor Jones had intended to hold an anti-Islam rally and counter-protest against the festival. The event is the largest outdoor gathering of Arab-Americans in the U.S. Jones wore sunglasses, a bullet-proof vest and a t-shirt that read: 'Everything I ever needed to know about Islam I learned on 9-11.' He had led a rally...

    The Rep. Anthony Weiner sexting story refuses to stop escalating to higher levels of impropriety with each passing day, and with the news last night that the Congressman had been speaking to a 17-year-old girl surfacing, calls for him to resign are at a fever pitch. On this morning’s Fox & Friends, Andrew Breitbart confirmed there was one underaged girl with which he spoke, and even before that news broke, the heads of the Democratic Party were calling for Rep. Weiner to resign. Breitbart noted that the news was not exactly surprising to him given the information he had received,...

    SOQUEL, Calif. - Students banned from a Central Coast school for wearing a white t-shirt. On Wednesday, Soquel High School suspended at least two students. The students say it's because of allegations, they're part of a white supremacist group. "All the girls wore pink, all the sports guys wore tank tops," says Soquel High Senior Mikey Donnelly. "We were all going to wear white so that was the plan. Just wear white t-shirts to identify ourselves and look back and say that was our group of friends right there." Soquel High Senior Mikey Donnelly wore a white t-shirt for his...

    After hearing news the other day that the Obama administration had appointed a new position to monitor and push back against negative online press we thought some liberals in DC might think it wasn't enough. So we sent Joe Schoffstall out to see just how far liberals would go to silence conservative speech. Joe went around Georgetown in DC with a petition to "Ban Conservative Hate Sites" that said this: "The undersigned hereby adamantly demand that the United States government shut down right wing hate sites. The hate speech propagated by sites like the Drudge Report, Hot Air, Instapundit, Big...

    A devout Muslim tracked his step-daughter over four states to murder her for bringing dishonour on her family, according to police. Rahim Alfetlawi, 45, followed 20-year-old Jessica Mokdad to her grandmother’s home in Warren, Michigan, and shot his step-daughter in the head. Alfetlawi gave himself in to police, claiming the gun went off by accident when he pulled it out. Alfetlawi reportedly became enraged when Miss Mokdad stopped wearing the traditional Muslim headscarf.

    When Mohamed Younes selected "Religious Freedom and Tolerance" as the theme for the American Muslim Union's annual brunch, it was long before New York Rep. Peter King decided to hold hearings on "radical Islam." Younes, president of the union, said the luncheon Sunday at the Glenpointe Marriott in Teaneck came at the right time. "It just happened to be the right subject for the right moment," he said. Younes, who founded the Paterson-based grass-roots organization in the hopes of serving the American Muslim community and promoting equality, told the roughly 500 attendees that religious freedom is a constitutional right. "With...

    A threat an elderly Guilford is accused of making over Planned Parenthood funding doesn't quite jibe with recent efforts to be more civil in political discourse. The woman is accused of threatening to castrate a politician who wants to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, the New Haven Register reports. The FBI went to the woman's home on Norton Road on Tuesday afternoon, after receiving a report of the phone call threat. The woman is in her 80s and used to volunteer for Planned Parenthood, police told the newspaper. It's unclear which politician she threatened. As a little background, federal lawmakers...

    It was an improbable and awkward moment. Sitting across a table at Starbucks, we had never met before. I was visiting his town, and asked for a meeting to discuss issues of common interest. He being a pastor of a large evangelical church and I being an Orthodox Jewish rabbi, I think he came less in the spirit of interfaith dialogue than out of curiosity. Pardon me, Rabbi, but exactly what do an Orthodox Jewish rabbi and an evangelical Christian pastor have in common? He quickly learned that I wasn't very much interested in interfaith dialogue either. At least not...

    NEW DELHI, INDIA (BosNewsLife)-- Suspected Islamic militants have killed two Christian teenagers who were reading the Bible in the disputed Kashmir valley, divided between India and Muslim Pakistan, BosNewsLife established Tuesday, February 8. The victims were identified as Arifa, 17, and Akthar, 19, the daughters of Gulam Nabi Dar, said local missionary Mercy Ciniraj, who knew them well. "The [murdered] girls were believers and used to read the Bible through underground ministries." She told BosNewsLife that "the girls were shot dead" last Monday, January 31, in the Baramulla area in Indian-controlled northern Kashmir, bordering Pakistan. They were "brutally murdered" by...

    A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. (Proverbs 12:10)Currently, there is an alternative to the judeo christian concept of love for our fellow-man, which is called tolerance. It looks like love and perhaps more importantly to many it actually feels like love, but it’s not love at all. In fact though it is called tolerance, it’s not even tolerance in the traditional sense of the word. A better expression would perhaps be fawning accommodation, but tolerance is what they are calling it these days. In this post christian era,...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – First Lady Michelle Obama on Thursday urged parents to teach their children tolerance in response to the deadly Tucson shooting spree that touched off debate about political rhetoric. Mrs. Obama, who joined her husband at a memorial service for the victims Wednesday, issued an open letter to parents. Children are struggling, she said, to make sense of Saturday's shooting that killed six and left 14 injured, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. "We can teach them the value of tolerance -- the practice of assuming the best, rather than the worst, about those around us," she wrote. "We can...

    Islamofascism: A New Year's attack on an Egyptian Coptic Christian Church that killed 21 worshipers was not a random act. It also suggests Ground Zero mosque supporters preaching tolerance picked the wrong location. If further evidence is needed of the nature of the enemy the United States and what's left of Western civilization faces, it can be found in the ruins of the Talbiya church in the Egyptian port city of Alexandria. In a terrorist attack one minute after midnight, 21 Christians attending a New Year's Mass were killed and 97 people, mostly Christians, were injured after a car bomb...
