    A group of leftist activists wearing pink pussy hats disrupted a Christian opening prayer at Rep. Jack Bergmanís (R-MI) Thursday evening town hall in Gaylord, Michigan, shouting, ďSeparation of church and state!Ē as other constituents stood with their heads bowed in respect. Dr. Derek Hagland, the assistant pastor at Grace Baptist Church in Michiganís First District, had just taken the stage to recite an invocation when activists began chanting, ďSeparation of church and state!Ē to disrupt him: ďThis guy was giving invocation,Ē Rep. Bergmanís communication director Farahn Morgan told Breitbart News. ďHe was not necessarily party affiliated in any way....

    The United Nations envoy for gay rights has declared that when there is a clash between homosexual rights and religious liberty it must be recalled that ďfreedom of expression and religious freedom are not absolute rights and may be limited if necessary.Ē In a recent public consultation, the UNís newly appointed ďindependent expertĒ on the defense of LGTB rights, Vitit Muntarbhorn, said that negative moral judgments on homosexual activity were a recent phenomenon, stemming from ďcolonial law.Ē

    A self-proclaimed ďantitheistĒ was sentenced to life in prison for killing his Christian flatmate over her religion. The 25-year-old Daniel E. was sentenced to life in prison by a court in Freiburg on Monday for killing his Christian student flatmate last August in a crime ruled to be motivated by hate and disdain. The 31-year-old victim from Paderborn had first met her killer when she moved into a student flatshare last summer. The young woman was an active member of her parish who wanted to later work for the church. But Daniel E. vehemently rejected any form of religion, and...

    ďNov. 8 was a game changer Ė and not for our essential work.Ē So lamented husband and wife atheists Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-presidents of the so-called Freedom from Religion Foundation, which is based in Madison, Wisconsin and which claims 23,500 members nationwide. In fact, there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth within the nationís anti-God community in the wake of Donald Trumpís seemingly improbable election this past week as Americaís next president. ďMr. Trump has made a number of statements,Ē decried David Silverman, president of American Atheists, ďthat has given millions of Americans who value constitutional...

    In canonizing Mother Teresa as a saint ("Pope declares Mother Teresa a saint," Sept. 5), the pope publicly confirmed the essential tenets of Catholicism: That God could have stopped Catholic priests from raping altar boys. But, overall, He didn't want to. And millions throughout the world rejoiced in this good news. Such is religion.

    The Good Book has been banished from rooms at a hotel operated by Arizona State University. The religious cleansing of the Thunderbird Executive Inn took place after the Freedom From Religion Foundation complained. It was a story first reported by Billy Hallowell of Deseret News. ďProviding Bibles to Inn guests sends the message that ASU endorses the religious texts,Ē attorney Madeline Ziegler wrote to the university. The FFRF is a group of perpetually offended atheists and agnostic whack-a-doodles from Wisconsin. They are very unpleasant and very litigious people. ďState-run colleges have a constitutional obligation to remain neutral toward religion,Ē Ziegler...

    According to presidential candidate and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, there's one thing that more important to him than the country he's running to lead: his God. In a remarkable exchange in New Hampshire, Politico reports, Cruz told reporters "I'm a Christian first, American second, conservative third and Republican fourth." "I'll tell ya, there are a whole lot of people in this country that feel exactly the same way," he added. Cruz, currently ranked second in GOP candidate polls according to RealClearPolitics, enjoys wide support among evangelical Christians in important, early-voting primary states like Iowa, where Cruz is locked in a...

    Following the heinous December 2 attack that resulted in the deaths of 14 innocents in San Bernardino, CA, the New York Daily News ran a front-page story mocking GOP presidential hopefuls who prayed to God rather than calling for more gun control. The NY Daily News front page said, 'God Isnt Fixing This'. And the story went on to mock Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)Governor Chris Christie, former Governor Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, and Donald Trump all of whom invoked God's name on behalf of the victims and the families of the victims of the horrible attack. According to the...

    Directly after a mass shooting, in the minutes or hours or days between the first trickle of news and when police find a suspect or make arrests, it is very difficult to know what to do. Some people demand political action, like greater gun control; others call for prayer. In the aftermath of a violent shooting spree in San Bernardino, California, on Wednesday, in which at least 14 victims are reported to have died, people with those differing reactions quickly turned against one another. For example: Here’s the Washington editor at the liberal publication The Nation, George Zornick, on reactions...

    All kids can be a little selfish, but according to a new study, nonreligious children are more generous than their religious peers. The study looked at kids from China, Jordan, South Africa, Turkey, Canada and the U.S.; and compared Christian, Muslim and nonreligious children. All of the kids were put through a series of tests to judge their behavior. First, kids were given stickers and instructions to keep some, and then allocate some to classmates that weren't there. Nonreligious kids gave more than Christian and Muslim kids.

    If you doubt that Christians are fair game for ridicule by the cultural left, take a look at the hit piece on Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia by Jeffrey Tayler for Salon. I can't decide which is worse, the title or the subtitle. The title: "Antonin Scalia is unfit to serve: A justice who rejects science and the law for religion is of unsound mind." The subtitle: "The justice claims to be an originalist, but his real loyalty is to religion and a phony man in the sky." The writer is trying to be cute, but don't conclude that any...

    Astrophysicist and cosmologist Neil DeGrasse Tyson is defending Scientology in light of HBO's highly critical documentary on the church. HBO's documentary "Going Clear" did not show the church in an entirely positive light ó Scientology has a built a reputation for tormenting members who leave it either by surveillance or harassment. The film highlights the celebrities who made the religion intriguing to the world as well as the horrific stories of abuse from former members. But Tyson, in an interview with The Daily Beast, declined to bash the controversial church, saying people are free to believe whatever they want. "So,...

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is an acknowledgement by the founders of our country, declaring independence from Britain, that human rights are bestowed by God via creation, that the natural state of the human being contains God-given rights. It is the basis, forms the...

    ďHow can you call yourself a Christian, let alone a minister?!Ē I get asked that question frequently and the questioner is hostile more often than not. Still, I like to answer it if I believe the questioner is sincere. Though I self-identify as a Christian and I am an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), I raised eyebrows a few years ago when I posted an article on my website about how my personal beliefs donít align with those of most Presbyterians. For example, I believe that: - Religion is a human construct - The symbols of faith are...

Their days are growing dark.Ē Dark, indeed. Americaís soon-to-be cultural-Marxist-in-chief would then spend the greater part of a decade waging war against our nationís Judeo-Christian culture and heritage at levels, and in ways, unseen in our storied history. Today, his anti-Christian crusade continues unabated. In fact, and with less than two years left to complete his baleful conspiracy, this neo-pagan extremist has begun to...

My last point, point 11, addresses Stephen Hawking but I want to make it clear that I do not view him as a fundamentalist atheist like Richard Dawkins, or Sam Harris would be. Although I, alongside many, disagree with Hawking and his conclusions, I don’t take anything away from his...

    The 2016 presidential campaign is already upon us and the debate is heating up over an unexpected issue -- the theory of evolution. Of course, in an ideal world, evolution would never really become a campaign issue. But the anti-science wing of the Republican Party continues to voice skepticism. Apologists for this wing would dearly like to distract the media and the voting public from what is, frankly, a national if not a global embarrassment. In truth, the President of the United States needs to be scientifically literate. For the federal government has an important role to play and it...
