    Ten masked gunmen, who used machine guns, opened fire at two buses carrying Egyptian Coptic Christians to a monastery south of Cairo on Friday, killing 26 including children and injuring 26 others, Al Arabiya News Channel reported. The Christian group was travelling in two buses and a truck through the province, which is home to a sizeable Christian minority, the governor of Egypts Minya province, Essam al-Bedaiwy, said. The health ministry said there were between eight and 10 attackers dressed in military uniforms, according to witnesses. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which came on the eve of...

    The systematic persecution of non-Muslims in Turkey is one of the least known topics in the West.The official line of the Turkish government that has been firmly established in both Turkish and foreign public opinion is that neither antisemitism nor hostility to Christians has taken root in Turkey. In addition, Ankara claims that Jews, as well as Christians, have lived more decent lives within a tolerant atmosphere in Turkey compared to their coreligionists in other Muslim countries in the Middle East. But this is simply just a myth.For example, 76 years ago, in May 1941, Jews, Armenians and Greeks in...

    A new Gallup poll shows that only 24% of Americans believe the Bible is the literal word of God, which is a decline from the 1970s, but the survey also shows that the number of Americans who think the Bible is the inspired word of God, 47%, has stayed pretty steady over the last 40 years. In addition, an overwhelming majority of Americans, 71%, believe the Bible is a holy document, inspired by God or containing Gods own words. Fewer than one in four Americans (24%) now believe the Bible is the actual word of God, and is to be...

    Extraordinary: Presidents don't make speeches like the one above. Or I should say, they didn't If you havent seen this, do yourself a favor and take the time to watch it. Its an extraordinary address for a president to give precisely because it cuts to the heart of something thats been going on in Washington for far too long: The political class does worship government as if it were a god. They obsess over it. They fight over what it should be like. They demand that everyone pay it as much money as possible. And of course, they fight for...

    Most of us know the story of the 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt who held fast to their faith and were beheaded by ISIS in February, 2015. But did you know that only 20 of them were actually Copts from Egypt? Did you know that one of the martyrs was from Chad, and he had not been a Christian prior to the day of his beheading? This story was previously reported. But I had not heard it before this week, when I attended the World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians hosted by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. A Coptic...

    This week, ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd challenged evangelist Franklin Grahams concerns about the persecution of Christians around the globe, calling it overblown. A far worse problem is the persecution of Muslims right here in the United States. While the practice of Christianity is illegal in some Muslim countries and severely hampered in others, Muslims in the US openly attend mosques and pray in public without any officially sanctioned interference and little unofficial notice or impediments. While Muslim fanatics readily heed the Qurans call to slaughter unbelievers who refuse to convert, there is no similar scriptural call for Christians...

    Video at link. A Kentucky appeals court has upheld the conscience rights of a Christian printer who refused to make shirts promoting a gay-pride festival. In the 2-1 decision handed down Friday, Chief Judge Joy A. Kramer said she found no evidence that the store owner refused any individual the full and equal enjoyment of goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations it offered to everyone else because the individual in question had a specific sexual orientation or gender identity. Blaine Adamson is the owner of Hands On Originals, a Christian company that prints messages on T-shirts, pens, mugs and...

    It sure is easy to get confused these days. One moment #Resistance against offensive politics and policies is brave. Bold. Daring. The next? That is crazy talk. At least thats the charge leveled when conservatives resist liberal policies, such as when the archbishop of Kansas City, Joseph Naumann, announced last week that the Archdiocese had decided to end its relationship with the Girl Scouts of America. As he put it: To follow Jesus and his Gospel will often require us to be counter-cultural. With the promotion by Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA) of programs and materials reflective of many of the...

    The Christian governor of Indonesia’s capital city of Jakarta was sentenced to two years in prison on Tuesday for committing blasphemy against Islam. While running for governor, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, also known as “Ahok,” said his opponents were inaccurately citing the Quran to say voters cannot vote for a non-Muslim. Despite trying to make Islam seem like a more tolerant religion, Purnama’s comments were reportedly edited and shared in a video that caused mass protest and outrage from the Islamic community. On Nov. 2016, at least 200,000 Islamic protesters took to the streets of Jakarta and demanded Purnama be thrown in jail...

    Last week President Trump made the following promise to the nation: We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced anymore, the president said. We will never ever stand for religious discrimination. He made that statement last Thursday. The following day, the presidents nominee for Army Secretary withdrew his nomination. Im not going to pull any punches, folks. Dr. Green was bullied and forced out by a mob of militant gays, Muslims and Democrats. Dr. Green blamed his decision on what he called false and misleading attacks. Tragically, my life of public service and my...

    A friend recently asked, Where are those with uncompromising power and God-given authority in our pulpits today? His statement reminded me of the desperate need for passionate, spirit-filled preachers focused on pleasing God rather than man. Our cultures false perception of God as a cosmic ball of love, or a doting grandfather desperately needs to be challenged. Unfortunately, difficult truths are often compromised, watered-down, or avoided altogether in the hope of not offending, securing an audience, or building a mega-ministry. As a result, the church is a mile wide but only an inch deep; judgment is never mentioned, repentance is...

    Tim Tebow is a big-league hit in the minor leagues. The Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback has minor league fans around the Single A South Atlantic League flocking to stadiums and jamming ticket lines to see the Columbia Fireflies outfielder and designated-hitter. The Hickory Crawdads sold out four games with the Fireflies, its total of 17,500 for the series surpassing the 15,900 they drew their first eight games. "We had 4,500 people in the stands," Crawdads season ticket holder Christopher Pack said, "and 4,300 were there to see Tim Tebow." People show up in Tebow's NFL jerseys, and...

    A mortuary in Mississippi is being sued by the husband of a gay man for allegedly refusing to cremate him because of his sexuality. John "Jack" Zawadski, 82, and his nephew filed the lawsuit after being told that the funeral parlour did not "deal with their kind". Their legal team argue the response of staff at the Picayune mortuary devastated Mr Zawadski and his family. But the co-owner of the funeral home has tearfully denied the allegations. "We just didn't do that," a weeping Henrietta Brewer told Mississippi Today.Mrs Brewer said that her mortuary had handled the funerals of "well...

    President Donald Trump's widespread support among white evangelicals is holding steady as he approaches his 100th day in office, and their backing is nearly double his approval rating among the general public, a new Pew Research Center analysis finds. The analysis is consistent with other recent surveys that have shown voters who backed Trump in November are still fervently behind him. But Pew's data is notable because Trump is a relative newcomer to the evangelical community, a critical voting bloc that helped power his underdog victory. Eight in 10 white evangelicals who attend church at least once a month approve...
