    WACO, Texas — A Waco couple said their daughter was denied admission to a local day care because they are in a lesbian relationship. Brittney Ready and her wife, Stacey, have been married for two years and have four kids. Their youngest daughter, Callie, was on the waiting list at Parkview Christian Academy until they got a call Thursday saying the day care finally had an opening. Brittney wrote on Facebook that the director was sweet and welcoming to the couple and their daughter. It wasn't until they were ready to leave that they ran into problems. “We go to...

    Trump steps in to save Christians and Yazidis from extinction by jihadists JUL 19, 2019 3:37 PM BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS To acknowledge the levels of Christian persecution and Yazidis means to acknowledge a major problem within Islamic countries which are governed by the sharia; therefore, Christians have been left virtually ignored. That is, until Donald Trump decided to step in. “U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration is helping bring Christians and Yazidis in Iraq back from the brink of extinction fomented by a genocidal campaign at the hands of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), religious minority representatives declared this week at the...
  • New Interim Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson Claims Christians Can Support Abortions

    The Planned Parenthood abortion company has a new interim president. Alexis McGill Johnson replaces Leanna Wen, who Planned Parenthood fired today because she is not aggressively pro-abortion enough to take on President Donald Trump. Johnson is no stranger to the Planned Parenthood abortion company as she has been the president of the board of directors for many years. But if Leanna Wen was bad, Alexis McGill Johnson is even worse. Johnson believes that Christians can support abortions even though Christianity is entirely about a relationship with God through Jesus Christ that conquers Eternal death and brings forth eternal life. “We...

    Ashlyn Harris helped the USWNT defend its World Cup title. When it came to defending the character of her and her teammates, she was also up to task. When an interview with former U.S. teammate Jaelene Hinkle resurfaced on Twitter where she claimed the team “wasn’t a welcoming place for Christians,” Harris didn’t hold back. “Hinkle, our team is about inclusion. Your religion was never the problem. The problem is your intolerance and you are homophobic,” Harris, who is engaged to fellow USA World Cup champion Ali Krieger, tweeted. “You don’t belong in a sport that aims to unite and...

    Attorney Brad Hall, in the firm's conference room with iPhone photos he has taken. (Greg Sorber/Albuquerque Journal) Editor's note: Albuquerque attorney Brad Hall has represented more than 200 victims of priest sex abuse in New Mexico. As his years-long legal battle nears its conclusion in federal bankruptcy proceedings, Hall talked about the legal and emotional journey that began with an unlikely visit. Brad Hall was thinking about hanging it up after more than two decades as a successful plaintiff's lawyer specializing in civil rights cases. Maybe travel. Visit his kids living in exotic locations. Maybe do some writing. That all...

    The reason for her ouster is far more stimulating than any sermon this pastor could have delivered. The Rev. Dr. Amy Butler, the first woman to lead Manhattan’s famed Riverside Church, lost her lofty post amid complaints that she brought ministers and a congregant on a sex toy shopping spree and then gave one of them an unwanted vibrator as a birthday gift, The Post has learned. On May 15, Butler allegedly took two Riverside assistant ministers and a female congregant to a sex shop in Minneapolis called the Smitten Kitten, during a religious conference, according to sources familiar with...

    The proportion of Brits who identify as Christian has reached its lowest point in over three decades of polling, as more than half of respondents said they no longer affiliate with a religion, a new study suggests. The National Centre for Social Research, which claims to be Britain’s largest independent social research agency, released its 36th annual British Social Attitudes report this week based on a survey of 3,879 people. The report confirmed the continued trend seen in the U.K. and the United States of people not affiliating with any religion as 52% of respondents to the survey said they...

    In a San Francisco high school named after the father of our country, George Washington, a large mural of him that has been around for decades is now being painted over because some were offended by it. As the cultural Marxists in the thrall of political correctness take over more and more of the institutions of our nation, we can expect this kind of scrubbing away of our heritage. George Washington sacrificed a lot to win us our freedoms. But today, he is being cast down by some of the “social justice warriors” as if he was more of a...

    One of the first things tour guides point out about Jerusalem's Holy Sepulchre Church, Christianity's holiest shrine, is a wooden ladder perched on a balcony just above the main entrance. "That ladder has been there 200 years, and if you ever come here and that ladder's not here, something very bad has happened," one Israeli guide tells a group of Americans on a recent afternoon. "That's the status-quo ladder."

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — As state Attorney General Dana Nessel announced Monday that her office had charged a sixth Michigan priest with sexual assault, she questioned why some already have been released from custody. "I will say that we're seeing a pattern of personal bonds being granted in very serious cases where it has not been my experience that I've seen personal bonds on those kinds of cases," Nessel told Target 8. "I hope that people aren't getting special consideration just because they happened to have been or currently are members of the clergy," she added. On Monday, police...

    In 1778, British Captain James Cook discovered Hawaii, which he named "The Sandwich Islands" in honor of John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich -- the acting First Lord of the Admiralty. Captain Cook was killed on his third visit to Hawaii in 1779. When Captain Cook's voyages were read in England they raised awareness of new lands and inspired a missionary movement, led by William Carey, who took the Gospel to India in 1793. The Hawaiian Islands were united by King Kamehameha I in 1810. In 1819, King Kamehameha I died. His wife, Kaʻahumanu, and his son, Liholiho (King...

    You don’t win battles when there is an abundance of white flags in your arsenal. Christian universities haven’t grasped that concept. One after the other, Christian schools have hoisted the white flag of surrender regarding their practices, policies, and precepts. That’s called apostasy.   Last month, California passed a resolution calling on religious leaders to affirm homosexuality and “transgenderism” and to accept that Christian efforts to help people with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion are “ineffective, unethical and harmful.” Eager to please, Dr. Kevin Mannoia, Azusa Pacific University (APU) chaplain and the former head of the National Association of...

    Costi Hinn, a former prosperity gospel preacher and nephew to the immensely popular prosperity gospel preacher Benny Hinn, shared his conversion story with PJ Media before the release of his forthcoming book, God, Greed, and the (Prosperity) Gospel: How Truth Overwhelms a Life Built on Lies. Hinn first shared his story in Christianity Today two years ago, but his book — and his interview — fleshes out the story of how a man-centered rich kid became a God-centered follower of the humble Jesus. Famous hucksters like T.D. Jakes, Kenneth Copeland, Joel Osteen, and Benny Hinn get rich preaching a health...

    Christian Post ^ | 06/29/2019 | Meredith Harbman
    A major Evangelical college, Azusa Pacific University, recently experienced a series of institutional convulsions about one of the most controversial issues facing Christians today: homosexuality. As a case study, the events at APU illustrate just how complicated the topic is for Christianity in general and Christian universities in particular. Let’s review. Before the fall 2018 semester, APU relaxed language in its school standard of conduct prohibiting romantic same-sex relationships. Soon afterward, however, the board of trustees announced that they had never approved the change. The school then reaffirmed its commitment to a traditional, “biblical and orthodox” understanding of marriage. There...

    The current campaign to amend federal and state civil rights laws to extend protections to sexual orientation and gender identity isn't meant to eliminate discrimination — it's meant to eliminate religious freedom. What else are we to believe when proponents of such amendments tell us as much? Earlier this month, Michigan State Senator Jeremy Moss introduced legislation to amend the state's civil rights law to add sexual orientation and sexual identity as protected classes.  One of the main objections to changing the law before now has been the harm it must do to conscience protections and free exercise of religion.  Like their federal...

    In the latest and most egregious example of attempted government overreach, California legislators have proposed a bill that would dictate what pastors preach from the pulpit. Specifically, Assembly Concurrent Resolution 99 calls on ‘counselors, pastors, religious workers, educators’ and institutions with ‘great moral influence’ to stop perpetuating the idea that something is wrong with LGBT identities or sexual behavior. ACR 99 also condemns attempts to change unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion as ‘unethical,’ ‘harmful,’ and leading to high rates of suicide.”

    An Oregon baker said Tuesday she's thrilled to have a "second chance" to fight in court over a $135,000 penalty for her shop's refusal to make a same-sex wedding cake. The Supreme Court on Monday threw out a ruling against the bakers, Melissa and Aaron Klein, who refused to bake the cake citing their religious beliefs. During the court's last term, justices ruled in favor of a Colorado baker in a similar situation, stating that a state body demonstrated improper hostility toward the baker's religion in finding that he violated a state anti-discrimination law. On Monday, the Supreme Court sent...

    The first formal "Father's Day" was celebrated JUNE 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington. Sonora Louise Smart Dodd heard a church sermon on the newly established Mother's Day and wanted to honor her father, Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, who had raised six children by himself after his wife died in childbirth. Sonora Louise Smart Dodd drew up a petition supported by the Young Men's Christian Association and the ministers of Spokane to celebrate Fathers' Day. In 1916, Woodrow Wilson spoke at a Spokane Fathers' Day service. On December 6, 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt addressed Congress: "No Christian and civilized...

    Muslims destroying Christian crosses all over the world, and no one reports it June 10, 2019 (American Thinker) — A Muslim migrant in Rome recently stabbed a Christian man in the throat for wearing a crucifix around his neck. The assailant, a 37-year-old Moroccan, is accused of attempted homicide; "religious hate" is cited as an "aggravating factor" in the crime. This is hardly the first "religious hate" crime to occur in the context of the cross in Italy. Among others, A Muslim boy of African origin picked on, insulted, and eventually beat a 12-year-old girl during school because she too was wearing a...
