    In May, Robert Jeffress, a Southern Baptist preacher from Texas perhaps best known for attacking Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith, stood among a host of Christian ministers in the White House Blue Room and addressed President Trump. “Mr. President, we’re going to be your most loyal friends,” Jeffress said then. That prediction was accurate. At some of Trump’s lowest moments over the past few months, conservative religious leaders have materialized at the White House to literally lay hands on him in prayer. The photos of these moments have a powerful resonance for many American Christians who are steeped in a fundamentalist...

  • (AP) MSM: Christian Prayers Along Polish Border a 'Problematic Expression of Islamophobia'

    Breitbart ^ | October 10, 2017 | Thomas D. Williams
    Reporting on the extraordinary turnout for the "Rosary on the Borders" prayer campaign in Poland, the Associated Press (AP) suggested that the event smacked of "a problematic expression of Islamophobia." On-the-ground sources said that over a million Poles turned out Saturday to pray the rosary along the country's 2,000-mile border for the salvation of their country. [Snip] The AP wasn't the only mainstream media outlet to take issue with the overtly Christian commemoration, which was openly supported by Poland's prime minister, Beata Szydło. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) called the rosary prayer "controversial," suggesting that the event could be seen...

    At Oxford, where the motto is, The Lord is my Light. Members of the Christian Union (CU) were banned from attending a freshman fair at the University of Oxford for fears that incoming students might face potential harm and feel unwelcome. According to Breitbart London, the university wanted to keep the freshers fair a secular space after concerns were raised by student welfare representatives. This was a strange turn of events for an institue established under Christianity. An internal e-mail explained the universitys reasoning: "We recognise the wonderful advantages in having CU representatives at the Freshers Fair, but are concerned...

    So my daughter came home from college a few weeks back saying they're teaching "White privilege, social justice, inequality and income inequality" at her college....a Christian college. There's a white privilege survey that she did, discussions on inequality, unfair advantages, etc--- I was appalled as was my daughter. However, she stood up in class calling out these lies and the teacher let her speak at the end to make her point but ran out of time. The "professor" said she could continue the next day---which she did, but there was a student that was brought into that particular class that's...

    The new school year has started this month in Turkey, but Assyrian Christians, otherwise known as Syriacs or Chaldeans, still do not have a single primary school in the country where they could learn their native language and culture. The Istanbul-based newspaper Agos reported that the activists of the Syriac community applied to the Ministry of National Education in 2012 to get its permission and support to open a Syriac kindergarten in Istanbul. When their application was rejected, they took on a legal struggle and were finally able to open the Mor Efrem kindergarten without any economic support from the...

Carl and Angel Larsen operate Telescope Media, a video business that the Larsens want to include wedding videos. But they have a problem in the recently amended Minnesota Human Rights Act, which forbids businesses to treat people differently based upon race, color, national origin, sex, disability...

    Why is it okay to disrespect the American flag, okay to wear a t-shirt praising communist butcher Fidel Castro, okay to depict cops as pigs, but not okay to wear a Christian t-shirt? Everyone is weighing in in the disrespectful NFL flag-sitters, so I might as well. Here are several points that make the case that NFL owners and the commissioner are utter hypocrites for allowing players to disrespect the American flag: 1) The NFL is a private company it is not the federal government. Every private company has codes of conduct. 2) The NFL forced RGIII (Robert Griffin...

    A new release that drew raves from moviegoers but was derided as spiritual propaganda by the left-leaning Miami New Times has surprised its makers by earning the No. 4 slot for new releases. Because Of Grcia, described as a teen Rom-Com with a message, came through its opening weekend with just under $2,000 per screen, taking the No. 4 slot for new releases behind American Assassin, mother! and Brads Status.

It features former American Idol contestant Moriah Peters The...

    At this point, you’re probably already familiar with the case of baker Jack Phillips who declined to bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding on the grounds that it went against his beliefs as a Christian. In June, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case which suggests the legal issue here isn’t as simple as it might appear (to some) at first glance. Today the NY Times published a sample of the 4,500 responses to the story written on the website or on Facebook by their readers. To the Times’ credit, they didn’t use this as an...

    The battle for 'Islamic State' stronghold Raqqa has reached its final stages, according to the Syrian Democratic Forces, the US-backed multi-ethnic alliance fighting IS. Karlos Zurutuza reports from Raqqa. At 22, Hannah has generously paid for his rank with a lost kidney, the scar that criss-crosses his chest and a bullet in the head which only grazed him. That didn't happen in Raqqa though, but in his native town of Qamishli - 600 kilometers (370 miles) northeast of Damascus - back in 2015. The enemy, however, was the same. Pre-war censuses in Syria placed the number of Syriac Christians at...

    American Thinker ^ | 09/18/2017 | Roger Taylor
    Former President Obama has said that America is not a Christian nation. Was that far left atheism, pro-Islamic proselytizing, or just wishful thinking? A few months ago a young second generation Iranian woman came to my office. I asked if she had Assyrian (a persecuted Christian group) heritage. She said that her parents were secular if not atheistic Muslims and made no effort to enforce any belief system on her. She said that she had decided to become a Christian. She answered my unspoken question by stating that she wanted and needed a personal God. Has she converted because of...

    There's something refreshingly honest about those Democrats revealing their bigotry in the halls of the United States Senate.They did so in questioning Amy Coney Barrett, a law professor at Notre Dame, a Catholic and woman of impeccable academic credentials, who has been nominated to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, a Catholic town.Democratic U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin and Dianne Feinstein are applying a religious test to public office, something expressly forbidden by the Constitution. And by their questions to Barrett, they reveal themselves.This evokes a line of inquiry from an earlier age, one asked of leftists during the...

    This afternoon, during a confirmation hearing for 7th Circuit Court of Appeals nominee Amy Coney Barrett, Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein attacked the nominee for her Roman Catholic faith. Barrett is a law professor at the University of Notre Dame who has written about the role of religion in public life and delivered academic lectures to Christian legal groups. Drawing on some of these materials, Feinstein launched a thinly veiled attack on Barretts Catholic faith, asserting that her religious views will prevent her from judging fairly.
