  • New Pixar Movie 'Out' Promotes the LGBTQ Lifestyle Directly to Children in Boldest Attempt yet to Indoctrinate Them into Homosexual Movement

    Gay activists have certainly been targeting your children for many years now, from sex-ed curricula in the schools to drag queen reading hours in the libraries, and now in new Pixar Disney short film ‘Out’ With each passing year, the gay activist crowd grows more and more powerful, flush with corporate funding in the millions of dollars, and the tent of their movement grows ever broader. That they desire children, on many levels, is evident, not only to recruit but also to be used as sexual objects as well. People get mad when I call it the LGBTQ+ P For...

    Jihad Watch ^ | 5/25/20
    This is just dandy for all those who were worried about Michael Mulvey’s virtue; it has now been abundantly signaled. But the bitter irony here is that no matter how hard he tries to be a “force for peace,” he will find his efforts unable to persuade jihadis to lay down their arms and stop waging war against unbelievers, because those jihadis consider that war a divine command (cf. Qur’an 9:29). What’s more, the Roman Catholic Church in general is indefatigably committed to Pope Francis’ ridiculous claim that “authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to every form...

    Tea at Trianon Blog ^ | May 11, 2020 | Elena Maria Vidal.
    I remember as a twenty-two-year-old being excited when I saw a new book called the The Mists of Avalon by an author called Marion Zimmer Bradley. Mists was presented as the retelling of the Arthurian legend from the point of view of the women of Camelot, which I thought was a thrilling idea. However, I found the book heavy on paganism and morbid, explicit sex scenes, but light on romance, heroism, chivalry, mystery, faith and all the qualities I had come to love in the Camelot stories. I never read any of the author's other books and did not care...
  • "Casting All Your Anxieties on Him" (Sermon for the Seventh Sunday of Easter; on 1 Peter 4:12-19; 5:6-11)

    “Casting All Your Anxieties on Him” (1 Peter 4:12-19; 5:6-11) It came as a shock this past Monday morning. I got an email telling me that the son of a pastor friend of mine--that over the weekend this pastor’s son had taken his own life. Fifteen years old. A good kid. A bright kid. A faithful, church-going young man. I had gotten to know this boy a little bit at various conferences over the years, when his parents had brought him along. So that made it all the more shocking and sad. Just fifteen years old. And in a sudden...

    Obama wanted to systematically change America, well, keep electing people like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and it will happen. But this change won’t be good for the real Americans! Obama might be gone but his legacy lives on. We all know that we are a country that is based on freedom and diversity but the left has gone too far! Everyone should express their religion as long as they don’t interfere with our way of living. Culver City is the latest city that has to put up with the enormously loud Islamic call to prayer 5 times a day...
  • "I Will Not Leave You as Orphans" (Funeral sermon, on John 14:1-6, 18-19)

    stmatthewbt.org ^ | May 22, 2020 | The Rev. Charles Henrickson
    “I Will Not Leave You as Orphans” (John 14:1-6, 18-19) It was a day in May of 1996. And on that day my mother, Marjorie Henrickson, died. My father had died some years earlier, and now my mother died. I realized on that day that now I was truly an orphan. The next morning was a Sunday, and the Holy Gospel for that day, which I had prepared to preach on, was the passage from John 14 in which Jesus says, “I will not leave you as orphans.” Suddenly that text became extra meaningful for me. Fast forward to a...

    A heavy metal drummer is recounting a nightmarish experience while in a coronavirus-induced comatose state, explaining that he’s learned to reconsider some of his beliefs from the near-death experience. Will Carroll, the drummer of Death Angel, states that he contracted coronavirus while on the final leg of a European tour in March. While lacking consciousness, Carroll is describing a nightmarish experience in which he dreamed he had descended to hell and was tortured by a female devil. Carroll claims that within his nightmares he was transformed into a “Jabba the Hutt-like-monster” and rebuked by his tormentor for ‘sloth,’ vomiting blood...

    My friend Graeme is a deeply religious man who knows how important and valuable the ancient wisdoms of the Christian faith can be in guiding us in this insane modern world. I find it very moving the way Graeme focusses on the compassion of the shortest verse in the Bible as he explains how his faith underpins and inspires his professional work to save peoples’ lives in the Age of Coronavirus: “Jesus wept.” John 11.35 Compassion. The heart of Christianity. Lest We Forget. Geoff Fox, 21st May, 2020, Down Under

    “Ascended and Still Present” (Acts 1:1-11; Ephesians 1:15-23) Where is Jesus, and what is he doing? That’s a good question to ask on this Ascension Day. Where did Jesus go when he ascended, and what is he doing now? Alright, you say, I know the answer to that; we just confessed it in the Creed: “He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.” OK, fine, but what’s the big deal about that? Is that enough to have a whole special festival service, to come out and have church on a Thursday? Well, I...

    (CHICAGO) People heading to Philadelphia Romanian Church in Ravenswood on Sunday might have a hard time finding a parking spot. Ald. Matt Martin (47th) said no-parking signs have been put up for several surrounding blocks near the church at 1713 W. Sunnyside Ave. The signs have been mounted on Sunnyside Avenue between Greenview and Ravenswood avenues, and Paulina Street between Lawrence and Berteau avenues. The parking ban is in effect from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday. Martin said the signs were put up at the direction of the Mayor’s office, in response to plans by the church to hold...

    stmatthewbt.org ^ | May 17, 2020 | The Rev. Charles Henrickson
    “Making Known the Unknown God” (Acts 17:16-31) The reading today from the Book of Acts is the story of Paul preaching at the Areopagus in Athens. There Paul was preaching not in a Jewish synagogue where he could assume some biblical literacy. Rather, he was speaking in a Gentile, pluralistic marketplace of ideas. And so this text has great relevance for us today, for this is the world we live in. Thus our theme this morning: “Making Known the Unknown God.” So Paul is in Athens, the great intellectual center from Greece’s glorious past. This was the city of the...

    Facebook controls as much as 80% of social media traffic. That means that it has the power to erase conversations, shift narratives, and control how people speak to one another. With 190 million users in the United States, the social network monopoly has more control over what people see than all of the media giants combined do. And now Facebook is putting some very troubling political activists in charge of its Oversight Board who will decide how it censors. Facebook has assembled a grab bag of globalist personalities that wouldn’t be out of place at a UN conference (and a...

    Cherbourg, France: Jean Dussine, president of an association for aid to illegal migrants was killed at his home on Tuesday, May 12, by the Afghan he was housing. Mr Dussine and came to the aid of migrants through the Cherbourg association Itinérance, of which he had been the president since 2016. The man was hospitable enough to accommodate a migrant of Afghan origin in his own house in Bretteville-en-Saire. And this infidel was duly rewarded for his kindness. Witnesses said the victim “was sleeping when the Afghan migrant, in his 20s, attacked him with an iron rod. He could not...

    Rev.Franklin Graham and more than 300 other religious leaders want "assurance they won't be sued if a congregant contracts the coronavirus" during a religious service . Christians should eliminate any reason for the courts to become involved by establishing an insurance program to assist church goers who believe they have contracted the coronavirus during a religious service Jesus would have healed anyone who caught a virus while He was preaching. Although preachers cannot heal the way Jesus did, they can raise money charge pay doctors who can heal. . During the current pandemic, religious organizations could combine their resources to...

    May 14 is the feast date of St. Victor, a Christian Roman soldier and his co-religionist and possible spouse Corona. Both the city and the century (and therefore the reality) of their passion are uncertain. For the believer, what these martyrs lack in firm historicity they make up for in practical effect. Corona chanced to become associated by medieval times with money — possibly the coincidence of her name, meaning crown,* with the sigils on coins — and thus she got wrapped up into a variety of pecuniary prayers and incantations. Strictly unofficial stuff from Rome’s standpoint, you understand: treasure-hunting,...

    Donald Trump has lead the world in placing the emphasis on getting the economy going in the pandemic situation. He channels the spirit of Republican America when he says that the country is not built to shut down. While the high death toll is not a good looking statistic, the reality is that any nation with a high death toll is probably way ahead in the race to get herd immunity. In the political context of Australia, the closest thing to Donald Trump’s priorities is the approach of the Prime Minister Scott Morrison. He has been extremely vocal in calling...
