    The St. Pauli church in the multicultural Swedish city of Malmö has unveiled a LGBT-themed altar painting featuring same-sex couples to celebrate advent. The painting, entitled Paradise, depicts two same-sex couples along with transgender individuals and is based on the 16th-century painting Adam and Eve by German master painter Lucas Cranach, Swedish newspaper Expressen reports. Artist and photographer Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin, the creator of the painting, initially attempted to donate it to Skara cathedral which refused it stating it was too overtly political. Sofia Tunebro, the head pastor of St. Pauli, welcomed the painting labelling it “pure joy” and added:...

    Fifty years after Stonewall, LGBT people who listen to a song, stream a series or read a book have more positive images to draw upon than ever before. But where are our faces in the ads that sell us those things — or, for that matter, pretty much everything? Rarely seen is the same-sex couple sizing up choices at a car dealership, passing around a tube of toothpaste during their morning routine or sharing a smooch as anniversary rings are exchanged. “There’s just a very small group of companies that make an effort to educate themselves and to progress… to...
  • Chick-fil-A, and America’s Fight to Hold Onto Religious Liberty

    As we head into the Christmas season, religious liberty in America continues to be under attack, and it’s not just about whether people can say “Merry Christmas” in public places. With the recent controversy over Chick-fil-A bowing to pressure to end its financial support of charities the far left has labeled as “anti-gay,” organizations that dare to hold onto certain deeply held religious beliefs will likely be punished for it. I have served on the national boards of the two charities that Chick-fil-A will no longer be supporting, the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). Both charities...

    We all know some individuals who are so obviously good and kind that we are certain if anyone were to dislike them, that's all we would need to know about the person. We would immediately assume he or she is a bad person. To hate the manifestly good is a sure sign of being bad. Such is the case regarding the left's hatred of The Salvation Army. You don't have to be a Christian -- I am not -- to appreciate the goodness of the people who run and work for The Salvation Army. They devote their lives to helping...

    ABC aired The American Music Awards on Sunday, Nov. 24, and the big surprise was that none of the featured pop stars launched into a political diatribe about the horrors of the Trump era. The shock factor was reserved for one of the most vicious assaults on God ever projected by Hollywood. One of today's most popular singers among teenagers is Camila Cabello, and she performed her song "Living Proof," which suggests God is found in her lover's raunchy moves. "Like a choir singing 'Hallelujah'/ When my body's crashin' right into ya," she sang. "Ooh, there's God in every move/...
  • A Majority of White Democrats Have Become Non-Christian: What that means for America.

    In Obama's first year in office, 68% of white Democrats described themselves as Christians, 7% claimed to be members of other faiths, and 24% said that they had no religious affiliation. A decade later, only 47% of white Democrats call themselves Christians. 10% are members of other faiths, and 42% have no religion. A majority of white Democrats have ceased to be Christian. The Obama era transformed the country and the party. It’s often observed that the Democrats of the JFK era are not the Democrats of today. But forget 1961, an era that is receding into the shadows of...

    Fr. James Martin touts blasphemous image of Jesus as a homosexual Warning: This article shows blasphemous images. November 24, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – In sending out a tweet about the Gospel reading from Friday’s Mass, Fr. James Martin, SJ chose to share a painting drawn from a series of blasphemous homoerotic works depicting the life of Jesus as if he were a gay man. “Gospel: Today Jesus drives the money-changers from the Temple (Lk 19). NT scholars say this was one of the main events that precipitated his execution,” tweeted the Jesuit. “Yet Jesus is not cowed by opponents. Another...

    As we once again near the Christmas season, the last thing we need is yet another show dragging Christianity, religion, or God in general. Sadly, HBO gave us a show that does all three in its latest series His Dark Materials. Based on the books by noted atheist Philip Pullman, this latest adaptation continued the story’s usual controversy of despising Christianity and the Church and making them the bad guys. The November 4 episode “Lyra’s Jordan” introduced us to a world that was “both like and unlike” our own. One key difference included the fact that every human was accompanied...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A 79-year-old man preaching from the Bible on a subway was left beaten and bloodied by a woman who allegedly attacked him with a high heel shoe. The violent attack was captured on video by riders on board a southbound 2-train nearing Times Square on Oct. 24. Police sources tell CBS2 the unidentified woman walked up and confronted the elderly rider, began to scream and curse at the man, and then took her spiked stiletto heel and assaulted the 79-year-old. The attack was so brutal it left the man with a gash in his head that...

    When C.S. Lewis Predicted Our Doom He worried about a dystopian future in which man tries to play God and fails. Whose dystopia are we living in today? With Donald Trump as president and the world seemingly ablaze, answering that question can sometimes feel like gambling on a horse race. So bet big on George Orwell, as ChinaÂ’s terrifying social credit system makes his Nineteen Eighty-Four freshly relevant. Though the odds are still good on Aldous Huxley, whose Brave New World offers the timeless warning that sexual and chemical freedom can actually be tools of subjugation. And here comes Margaret...

    Julia Lopp, who teaches Spanish at South Johnston High School, first grouped the students based on their religious beliefs, and then questioned them about whether they supported or opposed abortion rights, WTVD reported. She then she asked them where they stood on LGBTQ rights and beliefs, according to The Johnston County Report. She’s accused of verbally ridiculing students who said they believed in God, according to the report. Lopp also allegedly warned her students that if they reported her actions, she would “not recommend them for a job or even entrance to college,” WTVD reported. As the school district investigated, Lopp, who...

    A federal judge has affirmed a Colorado law that effectively bans business owners from freely expressing in public their religious beliefs about marriage and homosexuality. Colorado was the loser in a similar dispute, the Masterpiece Cakeshop case in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the state show "hostility" to the Christian beliefs of Jack Phillips in its handling of his refusal to make a cake for a same-sex wedding. Since then, openly homosexual Democratic Gov. Jared Polis has pursued a gay-rights agenda that includes allowing people to indicate their sex on driver's licenses according to their "gender identity" and banning...

    This hothead is going to have to pray for a lot of forgiveness. A crazed woman wielding a stiletto heel and shouting “f–k your God” bashed an elderly singing subway preacher in the head on a train in Manhattan, according to disturbing video released Friday. The 79-year-old victim was preaching aboard a southbound No. 2 train near the 42nd Street-Times Square station at around 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 25, when the woman removed her high heel and menaced him with it as if it were a weapon, according to cops and video of the incident.

    Kudos to the Huffpost for trying to find some common ground between the LGBTQ community and Christians. And by finding common ground, we mean adopting a scorched earth/take-no-prisoners tactic in its war against those with different points of view. Huffpo’s little educational piece, titled “Christians, Here’s How To Affirm Your Queer Friends,” is an uncompromising list of demands for traditional Christians who, wthether they’ve intended it or not, have caused great harm to fragile LGBTQ psyches throughout history. They’ve come for their revenge, and it’s not just about treating your gay neighbor civilly. You will accommodate his/her/their every wish or...

    A US fast-food chain will cease trading at its first UK outlet amid a row over donations to anti-LGBT groups. Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October. A spokeswoman for the centre said "the right thing to do" was to not extend the restaurant's lease beyond the "six-month pilot period". Chick-fil-A said its donations were purely focused on youth and education. The family-owned company, founded in Atlanta in 1967, is one of the biggest fast-food chains in the USA and boasts about 2,400...

    In between the first and second hour of the Democratic Party’s presidential debate in Ohio was a brief commercial from the Freedom From Religion Foundation calling for watchers to remember that secularism was a founding father plan for America’s government from the get-go and that those who say differently are, well — uninformed. Come on in guys, the fire’s warm. Ronald Prescott Reagan — the son of the late, great President Ronald Reagan — actually made the pitch for FFRF on national TV, wrapping with this mocking line: “I’m a lifelong atheist, I’m not afraid of burning in hell.” Yikes....

Pastor Andrew Brunson, 51, told the Washington Examiner how troubled he has been by the ominous trends he has observed in American culture during the year since his dramatic, high-stakes release from a Turkish prison. Drawing on the ordeal he recounts in God's Hostage, his...
