    ROME - In his continual effort to quell worldwide conflicts, Pope Francis Thursday chastised world leaders for lacking the will to make change, and also insisted true peace implies an “ecological conversion” or it won’t work. In an annual message for the World Day of Peace, which is celebrated on Jan. 1, the pope implied that violence toward humanity and violence toward the planet go hand in hand. “If a mistaken understanding of our own principles has at times led us to justify mistreating nature, to exercise tyranny over creation, to engage in war, injustice and acts of violence, we...

    Pro-LGBT priest James Martin tweets about study normalizing animal ‘same-sex behavior’ December 5, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-LGBT Jesuit priest Fr. James Martin yesterday tweeted out a New York Times article asserting that researchers now claim that animals have always practiced “same-sex behavior.” Tweeted Martin to his 257.3k followers: Scientists in new study: "The researchers suggest that same-sex behavior is bound up in the very origins of animal sex. It hasn’t had to continually re-evolve: It’s always been there." https://t.co/FV44sCcDQS— James Martin, SJ (@JamesMartinSJ) December 4, 2019 According to The New York Times, “A team of researchers say that science...

    The totalitarian efforts to suppress and control Christian faith in China have taken a disturbing turn that reflects Beijing’s greater Orwellian aspirations of social control. In the communist nation, in which it is already quite dangerous to be a Christian, some churchgoers must now submit to facial and fingerprint scanning when they come to church. According to Bitter Winter, an online magazine exposing China’s human rights abuses and religious oppression, government thugs set up two biometric scanning stations at the entrance of the Muyang Church in Hubei. Now, before being allowed in to worship, Christians must line up to be...

    Make no mistake about it, this is a multi-front cultural, political and economic war against the God of Abraham, His Bible, against His Son Jesus Christ, and against His Church that He shed His own blood to create. Whenever you see the 6-color rainbow Pride Flag, just remember that you are looking at a battle flag under which LGBTQ+ soldiers are marching to war, and that war is on biblical Christianity and the King James Bible. They do not want tolerance, acceptance or equality, they want control and aim to take it by any means necessary. Wake up, church, you...

    President Nixon, in his last official address, left a cryptic warning of the Middle East "...so that the cradle of civilization will not become its grave." The "cradle of civilization" is the Mesopotamian Valley, also called "the fertile crescent." The Fertile Crescent begins south of Mount Ararat, the traditional resting site of Noah's Ark, and continues south to the land between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. This area later became the lands of: Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Lebanon, Cyprus, Jordan, Egypt, Israel, Syria, and Assyria. Assyria is mentioned in the Book of Genesis, where it describes the location of the Garden...

In a series of telegrams to officials of the three territories, the pope disclosed the current diplomatic position of the Vatican regarding key Asian conflicts.

    The Psalms of the Bible are full of prophecy. A major theme of many of the Psalms is that of the return of the King, Messiah, and his sufferings and glory. The prophecies of the Psalms are eschatological also, describing in great detail the last great conflict of Israel, and of the world conditions at the time of the second coming of Christ. The ninth Psalm is an example of this. I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing...

    A collection comprised of nearly 50 “queer hymns” has been recently published by an ecumenical non-profit association that seeks to promote congregational singing. Songs for the Holy Other: Hymns Affirming the LGBTQIA2S+ Community was released in July by the Hymn Society in the United States and Canada. Anglican Journal, the publication of the Anglican Church of Canada, publicized the songs, which were promptly shared online by the U.S.-based Episcopal Church. Both of the neighboring churches regularly promote LGBT causes throughout the worldwide Anglican Communion, but some of the hymns trample on a number of core Christian teachings, in addition to...
