    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino said Monday during a live television interview that he doesn’t believe President Barack Obama is a practicing Christian “in his heart.” “I think he worships himself,” Paladino told YNN’s “Capital Tonight” news program. ‘I’m not saying he’s anything else, but I think Mr. Obama is about himself,” the millionaire Buffalo developer said. “I think any religious beliefs that he advocates are part of the theater to make himself look better to the American people.” The comments come as Obama is again countering claims that he is a Muslim. In an interview...

    WASHINGTON – While Americans are bitterly debating the proposed building of a mosque near New York's ground zero, Muslims have been praying for years less than 80 feet from where another hijacked jetliner struck. The Pentagon chapel is part of a memorial to the 184 people killed in 2001 when hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 flew into the west side of the Pentagon and plowed through three of the building's five office rings. As part of its massive renovation, the Pentagon opened the nondenominational chapel in November 2002. The chapel hosts a daily prayer group and weekly worship service for...

    At first glance, it would seem like senseless bickering over semantics. But when President Obama recently gave his speech at the memorial service for those killed at Ft. Hood, his choice of words caused serious concern among leaders of many human rights organizations including Jim Jacobson, president of Christian Freedom International, who works tirelessly to serve and call attention to Christians suffering religious persecution around the world. His organization is already fighting an uphill climb to light a fire under the international community regarding the incredibly underestimated volume of Christian persecution of all degrees, from murder in the Middle East,...

    Could One Word Have Dangerous Policy Implications? At first glance, it would seem like senseless bickering over semantics. But when President Obama recently gave his speech at the memorial service for those killed in the Ft. Hood, Texas, massacre last November, his choice of words caused serious concern among leaders of many human rights organizations. One of those leaders was Jim Jacobson, president of Christian Freedom International (CFI), an organization working tirelessly to serve and call attention to Christians suffering religious persecution around the world. His organization is already fighting an uphill climb to light a fire under the international...
  • Palin DOES NOT want to be worshipped (why are people saying that ?)

    There seems to be a tactic used by many here and elsewhere to mock Sarah Palin as some kind of messiah figure because she has a lot of fans. This is not only wrong, this is disgusting. Sarah Palin has never presented herself as an Obama type figure that wants to be seen as a savior. She has been polite and decent on the national stage. She has treated people around this country very good in her time on the national stage. Yet, some people talk about her as an object or a piece of trash. We have someone around...

    Since November 2009 President Barack Obama has been using a phrase which cuts at the very heart of the United States Constitution. Instead of speaking of the "FREEDOM OF RELIGION" we enjoy in America, he has been speaking of the "FREEDOM OF WORSHIP," which expresses a complete different concept. "FREEDOM OF WORSHIP" implies that which one does in private and behind closed doors. "FREEDOM OF RELIGION" speaks of the freedom to practice what one believes in public spaces.

    More interesting news out of the Holy See today with July 6, 2010 appointments. Pope Benedict XVI has added to Archbishop Raymond L. Burke's duties. Last October, he was named a member of the Congregation for Bishops, and today, the Holy Father added him as a member of the Congregation for Divine Worship (CDW). This on top of being the Prefect for the Apostolic Signatura! Anyone who thought he was "promoted out" of the US, is hopefully re-assessing that view. His Excellency is in some very influential positions which will only grow with time.

    I hope you have viewed my Two Minute Warning video commentary on what I believe is the greatest threat to religious freedom in my lifetime. If you haven’t seen it yet, we will keep it up at ColsonCenter.org for all this week-because it is one of the most important messages I’ve delivered. And over 150,000 people have already watched it. Please, watch the video and tell your friends, your family, and your acquaintances about it. Here’s why: I believe the administration is seeking to redefine the meaning of religious freedom, shrinking it to mean nothing more than the right to...

    For some time now, I’ve been warning you about the various threats to religious freedom. We’ve talked about the gay-rights movement, which insidiously insists that religious believers and organizations bow before the altar of sexual freedom. We’ve talked about the so-called health care reform bill, which does not protect the freedom of conscience of medical practitioners. But now I’m seeing the threat to religious freedom in its most pernicious and dangerous form ever. I speak about this in my latest video commentary [see video embedded in article].
  • Why is Obama Changing “Freedom of Religion” to “Freedom of Worship”?

    Words matter. Words often hold great meaning. That is especially true when it comes to the words of our founding documents like the Bill of Rights in our Constitution. Those words are especially cherished. Yet in the past year it appears the Obama administration has been changing one key word in that sacred scroll. Last month the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom’s 2010 report revealed grave concern about both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton rejecting the term “freedom of religion” for the term “freedom of worship” in public pronouncements. Why the change when the First Amendment...

    How would you rate the power of prayer? Would say that…. Prayer is Real, Genuine, and Powerful Prayer is Ineffective Prayer is a phony mechanism used by superstitious people Believe it or not there are many people whose personal opinions best match at least one of those stated views. And what we’re going to do today is examine each and every one of them with some background, clarity, and hopefully provide you with some new insight. 1. Prayer is Real, Genuine, and Powerful—I don’t think that for one second, it would be inaccurate to say that every believer in this...

    She isn't employed by the show and viewers never see her sparring with Simon Cowell. But Leesa Bellesi exerts her own kind of pull on "American Idol," Fox's top-rated singing contest that has a unique if often-unstated link to Christian churches. Bellesi, who runs a Christian nonprofit in Lake Forest with her ex-pastor husband, visits tapings frequently, has befriended numerous finalists and helps wrangle funds and scout temporary housing for families who trek cross-country to see relatives perform on "Idol." Bellesi said that churches form a base for the young singers as they try to win votes and establish fan...

    Putting Sunday Mass First April 29th, 2010 by Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan Just a week after the awful earthquake in Haiti last January, I was able to visit that suffering island. I was especially eager to meet our 300 Catholic Relief Services staff members who continue the 60-year presence of CRS in that impoverished country. As you can imagine, they were exhausted, emotionally drained, mourning the huge losses and on the brink of discouragement. My visit with them was moving.As I got ready to leave them that Saturday afternoon, I asked if there were anything else I could do for...

    Glory be to Jesus, Who in bitter pains Poured for me the lifeblood From His sacred veins! Grace and life eternal In that blood I find; Blest be His compassion, Infinitely kind! Blest through endless ages Be the precious stream Which from endless torment Did the world redeem! Abel's blood for vengeance Pleaded to the skies But the blood of Jesus For our pardon cries. Oft as earth exulting Wafts its praise on high, Angel hosts rejoicing Make their glad reply. Lift we, then, our voices, Swell the mighty flood; Louder still and louder Praise the precious blood!

    If asked how you worship God, how would you answer? Worship is so much more than participating in a part of Saturday or Sunday service. To worship is to adore, to acknowledge, to accept and to abide in the very presence, power and purpose of God. True worship is a lifestyle of welcoming the presence of God, wallowing in the power of God, and wooing the purpose of God. It's easy for most of us to start our week with worship, but then we start to whine during the week when we get whacked and whipped with Satan's worldly whirlwinds....

    Sociologist Christian Smith contends that most religious teens in the U.S. have very little appreciation or regard for the theological and doctrinal particulars of their own religious traditions but did believe that God exists, loves them, wants them to follow the Golden Rule, and comforts them in the midst of the emotional ups and downs of adolescence. Moreover, Smith argued, most teens, including teens who were regular churchgoers, believed that all religious traditions are functionally equivalent, and that they provide spiritual succor, moral guidance, and emotional support in about equal measures. This, then, is Moralistic Therapeutic Deism; and, as Smith...

    Holographic preachers are stirring another technology-gone-too-far debate among Christians. While the dust over beaming preachers on a video screen on multi-site campuses has somewhat settled, the new 3D tool is raising more questions and concerns among some believers. "Since so many of us in the west are convinced that entertaining pew fodder is critical to advancing 'the gospel' and that only a very few have the necessary gifts to preachertain – this will become the 'perfect' solution," Bill Kinnon, author of A Networked Conspiracy, Social Networks, The Church & the Power of Collective Intelligence, wrote in a recent blog post....
