    The Washington Standard ^ | 11-28-2017 | Tim Brown
    As the mainstream media continues to report on allegations against Hollywood and political stars, some of which comes decades after the allegations with absolutely no evidence, largely silent in the reporting is the sexual misconduct taking place among police officers and members of the church and cult groups. The latest social media blitz is coming in the form of the hashtag #ChurchToo. Rachel Blevins reported on the social media eruption with several tweets. Twitter user Elizabeth Halford noted, after the hashtag MeToo went viral, several of the nearly 2 million users from around 85 countries who shared their stories, were...

    A three-judge court panel ruled Wednesday that a World War I memorial in the shape of a cross in Bladensburg, Maryland, is unconstitutional, a decision that a legal scholar says could imperil other similar memorials. In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit said the 40-foot cross erected 92 years ago violates the First Amendments Establishment Clause. The monument here has the primary effect of endorsing religion and excessively entangles the government in religion, Judge Stephanie Thacker wrote for the majority. The Latin cross is the core symbol of Christianity. And here, it is 40...

    In God We Trust ^ | July 1, 2008 | Bishop Council Nedd
    The atheist Freedom from Religion Foundation has taken its anti-faith message to Denver, the site of the Democratic National Convention. Their "Imagine No Religion" sign demands Denver residents and Democratic Party officials preparing for the convention to envision an America without people who believe in God. In response, Bishop Council Nedd, chairman of the In God We Trust has asked Senator Barack Obama to condemn the sign's message. The Freedom from Religion Foundation President, Dan Barker, has called Christianity "and enemy to humanity" and "the antithesis of freedom." In his letter to Senator Obama Nedd states, "By placing their billboard...

    PORTLAND (ChurchMilitant.com) - The man who fined an Oregon Christian bakery $135,000 for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple has lost his run for public office, losing to his Republican opponent. It's the first time a Republican has won a statewide office in Oregon since 2002. Brad Avakian's rise to national prominence began when a lesbian couple filed a complaint to the Oregon Department of Justice back in 2013 when Aaron and Melissa Klein, Christian owners of Sweet Cakes bakery, declined to make a cake for a gay wedding. Brad Avakian, then Commissioner of Oregon Bureau...

    In an interview with Raymond Arroyo on EWTN's The World Over, Edward Pentin stated that his sources have confirmed with him that "Pope Francis not happy at all," with the letter of the four Cardinals on the matter of heretical clauses and sacrilegious actions in Amoris Laetitia. Pentin continued that he, the Pope, is "boiling with rage." He had been "given two months," to respond to the four, and has refused. "Boiling with rage." How very sad. To you priests and bishops in Rome who are faithful to the Church and know first hand what is happening there, whom do...

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable...

    The advertisement read: "Store closing sale Cedar Springs Christian Store Clinton Highway location All merchandise, fixtures, slat walls must go. Sale through August 13, phone 865.947.XXX." Mrs. McGinnis placed the ad on July 26. It was supposed to run on July 28. But when she opened up the newspaper the ad was nowhere to be found. So Mrs. McGinnis phoned the newspaper and spoke with a classified ad employee. "She said our ad did not run because it contained an offensive word," she told me. "I asked what that offensive word was and she said the...

    [Snip] Traditional American Christians have long been on the losing end of culture-war contests—on school prayer, same-sex marriage and other issues. But recent events, including the Supreme Court decision overruling Texas’ restrictions on abortion clinics and the mandate that employers provide access to contraception, have added to the sense that religious expression is under attack.[Snip]Some of the faithful have paid unexpected prices for their beliefs lately: the teacher in New Jersey suspended for giving a student a Bible; the football coach in Washington placed on leave for saying a prayer on the field at the end of a game; the...

    The Denial About Super Bowl 50 Having a Gay Agenda is Laughable! It all started with this simple statement. “How about this: God is Love. I believe we should have had a cross with the same words "Believe in Love" without the rainbow. Got a problem with that?” That’s what I wrote in response to an article written in the Huffington Post the day after the Super Bowl, entitled, “To Those Bothered By The 'Gay Agenda' At Super Bowl 50.” If you’re not in the know, a huge rainbow flag with the words, “Believe in Love” was prominently featured at...

    Franklin Graham is a voice crying in the wilderness. "I believe we are perilously close to the moral tipping point for the survival of the United States of America," Graham wrote in Decision magazine. "I refuse to be silent and watch the future of our children and grandchildren be offered up on pagan altars of personal pleasure and immorality." The Supreme Court has already redefined marriage. The nation has become a killing field for Islamic radicals. And Christians have become targets for practicing their First Amendment rights. "There now exists deep-seated antagonism and hostility toward Christianity in every seat of...

    The Bishop of Stockholm has proposed a church in her diocese remove all signs of the cross and put down markings showing the direction to Mecca for the benefit of Muslim worshippers.

    <p>Among the Christian Right, and most Republican presidential candidates, it’s now an article of faith that the United States is persecuting Christians and Christian-owned businesses—that religion itself is under attack.</p> <p>Why has this bizarre myth that Christianity is under assault in the most religious developed country on Earth been so successful? Because, in a way, it’s true. American Christianity is in decline—not because of a “war on faith” but because of a host of demographic and social trends. The gays and liberals are just scapegoats.</p>

    Christians are "filthy" in the sight of Allah and worthy of being looted and slaughtered "in a time of jihad," according to an American imam and professor of religious studies at a prestigious private college in Tennessee. These are words Professor Yasir Kazi now disputes he ever said. Kazi (also spelled Qadhi) is a professor of Islamic studies at Rhodes College, a four-year liberal arts college in Memphis, Tennessee. He has two master's degrees from Yale and one from the University of Medina in Saudi Arabia. He is expected to complete his doctorate soon from Yale's department of religious studies,...
  • American Professor Instructs Students That It’s Ok To Rape and Murder Non-Muslims

    Meet Abu Ammaar Yasir Kazi. He’s not some crazy Imam in the Middle East. He’s a college professor at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, who was described by New York Times Magazine as “one of the most influential conservative clerics in American Islam.” In lectures to students at this American college, he blasts those in his class as being filthy and impure. He then steps up his vitriolic diatribes, by tearing into Christians, where he compares them to feces and urine, saying they are the “most evil of evils.” He then instructs his students that they should engage in jihad...

    Here is Jesus H. Christ, walking around modern America, right now. Can you imagine him? Here is, in other words, a dark-skinned, bearded, unkempt Middle Eastern Jew, acting all kinds of suspicious, ranting on street corners and hanging around with prostitutes and fanatics, rejecting money, violence and the ruling class, seen by Muslims as the divine precursor to their prophet as he lures the innocent and the seditious into his lawless cult of pacifism and peace.

    If Donald Trump secures the Republican presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton is sure to be the next U.S. president, according to Jeb Bush. Appearing on WBZ-TV Sunday morning, the former Florida governor slammed his Republican presidential opponent as "not motivated to win the presidency" and continued to proclaim that Trump is in cahoots with Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner. Bush also contended that Trump is neither a "serious person" nor a "serious candidate." "The simple fact is, his winning the primary, the Republican nomination would guarantee that Hillary Clinton will be elected president," Bush said. -snip- According to Real Clear Politics' aggregated...

    According to a recent CNN/ORC poll, many white evangelical Christians in the early primary states support Donald Trump. That’s surprising. Trump’s call Monday to bar all Muslims from entering the U.S. is perhaps the biggest act of religious bigotry in modern presidential politics. Such a proposal is a total affront to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s stunning that Trump would ask the American people to punish Muslim refugee families for the sins of ISIS. It’s even more stunning that such positions have traction with the American electorate. As we come upon Christmas, the business mogul turned presidential candidate has...

    Child welfare services in Norway have reportedly removed five Christian children from their parents' home and placed them into foster care after the parents were accused of radicalizing and indoctrinating their children with Christianity. According to the British-based Christian Institute, Norway's child protection services, known as the Barnevernet, seized the three sons and two daughters of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu in mid-November. Although the family wasn't quite sure at the time why their children were being taken away from them, their lawyer discovered that the parents were being charged with Christian indoctrination. The family's ordeal began on Nov. 16 when...
