    First Things ^ | 4 . 21 . 17 | Jean Duchesne
    <p>On the day after François Fillon’s victory in the Republican primary in France last November, the leftist daily Libération’s headline was: “Help, Jesus is coming back!” The reason for this distress call was that Fillon is known as a practicing Catholic, a faithful husband (unusual among contemporary politicians), and a regular visitor of the Solesmes Benedictine abbey, the symbol of the allegedly reactionary neo-medieval nineteenth-century religious revival. Worse, he is supported by many of the militants who organized the spectacular (albeit vain) mass demonstrations against the legalization of same-sex marriage in 2013.</p>

    "LGBT agenda will be unhinged." A new religious liberty executive order protecting Christians from the onslaught of former community organizer Barack Obama's radical LGBT agenda may be in the works soon, says former Donald Trump advisor Ken Blackwell. “My anticipation is that we will see an Executive Order and it will be more than window dressing,” Blackwell, senior fellow for Human Rights and Constitutional Governance at the Family Research Council, told LifeSiteNews, predicting that Obama's “aggressive LGBT agenda will be unhinged." “We have a great plan to attack the administrative state,” he said. “We will have to be very meticulous...

    Students in a math class at Riverview High School in Florida are being persecuted for their faith. They are punished for not removing their cross jewelry. They are harassed for not embracing the LGBT agenda pushed on them by their lesbian teacher. But one ninth-grade student is pushing back. Her attorneys filed a demand letter requiring the teacher to cease and desist by close of business Thursday.Cross.jpg - 500 Parents told Liberty Counsel that at least three students were not allowed to wear their cross necklaces.

    Grocery store aisles are lined with chocolate candy bunnies, jelly beans, and marshmallow Peeps, but one thing is missing--the word "Easter." Hershey's, M&M's, Lindor, Russell Stover, Dove, Rolo, and Twix have all produced Easter themed candy without mentioning the word on the front of their candy, according to a press release from the Liberty Counsel. "Just as companies were trying to profit from Christmas while ignoring the reason for the celebration, now companies are targeting the Christian aspects of Easter and removing them," Mat Staver, Founder, and Chairman of Liberty Counsel said. {..snip..}

    The Washington Post ^ | 4/1/17 | Mary Vought
    Washington will swallow your soul if you let it. It’s a place where many moral compasses go to die. So maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Vice President of the United States is ridiculed when it’s reported that he’s spent his time in office choosing to live his life differently from the D.C. status quo. Since a Washington Post profile of Karen Pence, the vice president’s wife, appeared last week, critics have obsessed over a single line, which reported that, as of 2002, the vice president doesn’t dine alone with women other than his wife. At the...

    One more reason we should not be allowing the left to decide how marriages work in this culture If you don’t know anything at all about Christian ethics or faith-related teachings on marriage - and judging from the Twitterverse and fans of the Huffington Post, they don’t - you might find it strange that Mike Pence restrains his behavior in certain ways out of respect for his wife. Now, if you were a serious person, or even just a curious one, you might want to learn more about why he does these things. He’s had a pretty darn successful marriage,...

    Duck Dynasty was a modern-day version of Mayberry - a television show that celebrated faith and family and ducks. And now the show has ended - the duck blind is closed. It was back in 2012 that A&E introduced the nation to the owners of Duck Commander – the Robertson Family, of West Monroe, Louisiana. t was only a matter of time before Phil and Miss Kay and Uncle Si and Willie became some of the most popular stars in reality television show history. Among all of us gun-toting, Bible-clinging, Deplorables – the Robertson’s were beloved. Each week they welcomed...

    The same person was forced to step down from a Christian organization last year at his previous employerSYDNEY (ChurchMilitant.com) - Tech company IBM is coming under fire from gay rights extremists over their employment of a managing partner associated with a conservative Christian group. Mark Allaby sits on the board of a Christian internship program called Lachlan Macquarie Institute, and was asked last year to step down from Pricewaterhouse Coopers owing to his affiliation with the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL). In a tweet on Monday, gay activist Michael Barnett criticized IBM in Australia for employing "anti-LGBT" people, while pointing out...

    Ah, springtime. Flowers blooming, birds singing, and articles questioning the historicity of Jesus hitting the newsstands. Insurance company Geico has done a lot of funny commercials, but our editor at BreakPoint has a favorite. A group of teenagers are running through a dark forest being chased by a killer. After debating whether to hide in the basement, the attic or make a quick getaway in the nearby running car, they decide to hide behind dozens of chainsaws dangling from a barn door. "When you're in a horror movie, you make poor decisions," says the narrator. "It's what you do." And...

    Melania Trump has too many negatives to win the affections of envy-prone Americans. She is rich, tall, intelligent, well traveled, elegant, professionally accomplished, slim, stylish and photogenic in—or out of-- designer togs. She is devoted to family, lives in spectacular homes and travels by private jet. Worst of all, she won the heart of the most powerful man on the planet. At a recent Trump rally in Florida, she had the gall to pray. She read the Lord’s Prayer, into a microphone, no less. Heaven help us. There is enough in that magnificent creature to make smaller minds in every...

    he Council on American-Islamic Relation, a Muslim group that is unlikely to wield the kind of power over the Donald Trump administration as they did over the current president, is calling on Trump to dis-invite Rev. Franklin Graham from Friday’s inauguration ceremony. In a press release, CAIR said that Graham was a “notorious Islamophobe” who had no business speaking at the event. “If President-elect Trump truly seeks to unite our nation as he promised in his acceptance speech, he will limit the list of those offering prayers at the inauguration to religious leaders who work to bring us together, not...

    The city has donated the cross to Santa Clara UniversityThe battle over a large iconic cross in the South Bay has come to an end. After standing in Santa Clara for more than six decades, the 14-foot cross was taken down -- by a lawsuit. A Santa Clara man and Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation sued the city last April, claiming the cross violated the separation of church and state because it stood in a public park. "We are happy that the city divested itself of this religious symbol, and that the constitution is now being complied with," said Rebecca...

    Burrell will not appear on her show after the gospel singer made homophobic comments. Burrell referred to "the perverted homosexual spirit" during a sermon at a church in Houston, Texas. She had been due to sing with Pharrell Williams on The Ellen DeGeneres Show later this week. But the talk show host, who is a well-known advocate of gay rights, tweeted : "For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show."

    CHRISTIANS are the most persecuted religious group in the world with more than 90,000 killed in 2016 because of their faith, a leading religious study group director has claimed. Speaking on Vatican Radio, Massimo Introvigne, Director of the Centre for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR), said more than 60,000 of the Christians killed this year were murdered in tribal conflicts in Africa. He claimed these deaths often came after Christians refused to take up arms for reasons of conscience. The religious chief said: "The other 30 per cent, or 27,000, were killed in terror attacks, the destruction of Christian villages,...

    We are in the heart of Christmas season, so that means it’s time for the tolerance Grinches to come out of their closets once again.

    Every year small towns across America are targeted because of their nativity scenes. This year is no exception. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) recently zeroed in on the small village of St. Bernard, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. The Madison, Wisconsin-based organization threatened the town with a lawsuit if they do not remove the nativity scene. However, it is actually part of a larger exhibit that includes secular symbols of the season. According to the FFRF’s attorney, Sam Grover, the display “conveys a preference for religion over non-religion and for Christianity above all other faiths.” In essence, they argue...

    Obama’s sustained assault on religious liberty is finally over.Perhaps more than any other sector in America, the ivory towers of academia are mourning the defeat of Hillary Clinton, the departure of President Barack Obama, and the election of Donald Trump. For our faith-based university, however, the changing of the guard cannot come soon enough. The Obama administration’s sustained assault on religious liberty and the right of conscience, and the ineptitude of his White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, had campuses and religious charities of conservative, religious orientation struggling to survive. Some American colleges may be preoccupied with concerns...

    A 300-pound metal sculpture of a satanic pentagram, erected as an atheist protest to a public park’s Nativity scene, was severely damaged on Tuesday when it was pulled to the ground by protestors. Atheist Preston Smith’s 10-foot tall sculpture lay broken in Sanborn Square at noon. Tire tracks led from the twisted metal to the street. It appeared protestors had attached a chain from a vehicle to the sculpture and yanked it down, dragging it several feet... The sculpture sits about 20 feet from a traditional Nativity scene of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus, and is backed by a...
