    THREE archbishops from war-torn Iraq and Syria have been refused permission to enter the UK despite being invited to London to meet Prince Charles.The Christians, including the Archbishop of Mosul, were told there was “no room at the inn” by the Home Office when they applied for visas to attend the consecration of the UK’s first Syriac Orthodox Cathedral. Last night the decision was described as “unbelievable” by critics who pointed out that extreme Islamic leaders had been allowed visas. The Prince of Wales addressed the congregation at St Thomas Cathedral in London last week, while both the Queen and...

    A pair of Arizona-based Christian artists is challenging the local law that threatens to fine and imprison them for refusing to make same-sex wedding invitations. Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, owners of Brush & Nib Studio in Phoenix, lost a case at trial level which accused them of violating a local ordinance that protects homosexuals from discrimination, Fox News reported. The ordinance also prevents the business owners from publicly explaining their convictions or even defending their decision lest they face jail time for that as well. This apparent violation of the First Amendment protection of free speech is at the...

    Thoughtcrime, mob-enforced. But maybe they've gone too far this time You’ve probably heard by now of the hit piece BuzzFeed has published about Chip and Joanna Gaines. It is, without a doubt, the most astoundinly shameless and irresponsible pieces of journalistic garbage that’s ever been published. And it’s not because a word of it is necessarily inaccurate. What’s truly so disturbing about this piece of gutter trash is that the entire piece implies there is something scandalous about the Gaines being what hundreds of millions of Americans are and have been their entire lives - Bible-believing Christians:

In what looks like a repeat case of pro-abortion criminality, a person or people defaced a banner reading, “Abortion Takes Human Life,” which accompanies rows of white crosses representing victims of abortion on the lawn of the Christian Liberty Academy. The crosses represent the 113 unborn lives taken by abortion-on-demand each day in Illinois, said Chris Iverson, a local pro-life leader and adviser to the...

    PORTLAND (ChurchMilitant.com) - The man who fined an Oregon Christian bakery $135,000 for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple has lost his run for public office, losing to his Republican opponent. It's the first time a Republican has won a statewide office in Oregon since 2002. Brad Avakian's rise to national prominence began when a lesbian couple filed a complaint to the Oregon Department of Justice back in 2013 when Aaron and Melissa Klein, Christian owners of Sweet Cakes bakery, declined to make a cake for a gay wedding. Brad Avakian, then Commissioner of Oregon Bureau...

    Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time Do you consider yourself to be a Christian? If so, I offer you the following thoughts regarding your involvement with this 2016 election. If you are a Christian, the Bible says it’s completely because you are relying upon the only possible salvation offered through the sacrifice of God’s Son, Jesus Christ. Your good works - keeping rules, being nice to people, trying to be a good person, and so on - will not put you one inch closer to God, regardless of what you believe about your own goodness. It...

Indeed, if the Whore of Babylon herself was the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee, she’d very likely win the not-so-Golden State’s 55 electoral votes on Tuesday.

As a military campaign to rid the Mosul area of the Islamic state rages on, videos are surfacing of “the people of the cross” reclaiming their homes by raising makeshift wooden crosses over the churches and towns they were once forced to flee out of fear for their lives. The “people of the cross” was the term for Christians used by Islamic terrorists when they beheaded 21 Egyptian Christians in February 2015.

    Government minister Abdel Bin Loo Ni has nominated Christian lawyer Rashad Oh Mih Goud to serve on the Saudi judiciary in a special late night session. Understandbly, some Saudis are upset, but many applaud Bin Loo Ni's courage in showing the need for a balance to Sharia law in the nation. Minister Abdel Bin Loo Ni told news reporters as he ducked shoes being thrown that it was time for the Saudis to step up to the plate and show respect for Christianity in light of Obama's nomination of Abid Riaz Qureshi for the Federal Judiciary in the United States....

The Evangelical community across America has a very clear preference for the team of Trump and his running mate Mike Pence, the governor of Indiana who is a member of their community. Lane wants to harness that power to elect these men. From the earliest days of this...

    Salon Magazine has accused the Republican Party of being out of touch with “post-Christian America,” warning the GOP that if it doesn’t renege on its alliance with Christianity, it will soon become irrelevant. Ted Cruz’s failure to get the GOP nomination, Matthew Sheffield proclaims in Salon, “is a perfect window into trends that will set the pace of American politics for decades to come: Americans are moving away from Christianity, including people most likely to vote Republican.” To back up his claims, Sheffield cites the 2014 Pew Research study finding that 23 percent of Americans say they’re “unaffiliated” with any...
