    Christians in Sydney, Australia, are being advised to hide their crosses after an Arabic-speaking gang shouting “F*** Jesus!” attacked a couple on a train while transport officers looked on from a “safe space” and did nothing. The Sydney-based Daily Telegraph – a News Corp outlet unrelated to the Telegraph Media Group newspaper of the same name – reports the couple were attacked while riding the train through “Muslim enclaves” in south-west Sydney. {..snip..}

    Park service invokes separation of church and state: The shining symbols on the Knob will stay muted unless NPS and Lions Club come to agreement. MILFORD — The cross and star that shone for year over Milford, from high on the hill known as "The Knob," may have to go. The Knob used to be private land. But in October 2015 it was transferred to Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area under the National Park Service (NPS), which comes under federal regulations. Displays of religious symbols on government property are not allowed, although special use permits can be granted. Up...

    The city has donated the cross to Santa Clara UniversityThe battle over a large iconic cross in the South Bay has come to an end. After standing in Santa Clara for more than six decades, the 14-foot cross was taken down -- by a lawsuit. A Santa Clara man and Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation sued the city last April, claiming the cross violated the separation of church and state because it stood in a public park. "We are happy that the city divested itself of this religious symbol, and that the constitution is now being complied with," said Rebecca...

    ""Radical Far Left Group Demands World War I Memorial to Fallen Soldiers Be Torn Down Because It Includes a Cross"" The Bladensburg Cross was built in 1925 in Bladensburg, Marlyand in 1925.

    ** Something a bit off about that cross she's wearing... And here's Hillary on Ellen. Go to 2:20. The segment is Who Would You Rather (meaning sleep with). They're discussing sleeping with Beyonce v. Michelle Obama. Then it's suggested Hillary have sex with her own daughter. No look of repulsion or disgust. Just part of a 'comedy routine.' These are some sick people, folks. Unlike FEC violations, leaked emails, hacked servers THIS is the story that can decide this campaign. 1. Visual. 2. Immediate reaction and desire to tell others. It's hit 500,000 shares on Twitter. Depressing but the average...

    Church bells ring out in the Iraqi town of Bartella for the first time in years. As Iraqi forces continue their offensive against the ISIS-held city of Mosul, reports and images of the re-capturing of a string of villages and towns outside the city have hit the international media. Video aired on France 24 shows a group of Christian militia fighters from Bartella, a town 13 miles east of Mosul, returning home after having been driven out by ISIS two years ago. Their first actions on entering their village? Erecting a cross, ringing the church bells for the first time...

    The following article was written by Robert Knight and posted on October 22nd on the American Thinker website. If you didn’t hear about this last month, it’s for good reason. The media do not like publicizing defeats for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). A 27-year battle with the ACLU over the Mt. Soledad mountaintop cross at a Korean War veterans memorial in San Diego ended in a victory for American heritage. The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a one-page ruling calling the case moot on Sept. 8 and directing U.S. district judge Lawrence Byrne to dismiss it,...

    In a video posted on her Facebook page on September 21, New York-based Egyptian-American activist Ayat Oraby called the Coptic church "a gang, striving to establish a Coptic mini-state," and "a full-fledged mafia," and described Pope Tawadros as "a criminal." Oraby called upon Muslims to participate in an economic boycott of Copts, saying that: "They must be made to understand that the crescent must be on top of the cross."

    An Italian television news anchor has ignited a firestorm of criticism by wearing a crucifix around her neck while reporting the news, drawing the ire of “Muslims, atheists and many viewers,” according to reports. Marina Nalesso, a well-known news anchor on the State-owned Tg1 television news show, wore a crucifix around her neck several times last week while on the air, a choice that Silvio Viale, a leftist politician and vocal atheist, has described as “arrogance.” “TG is a public, secular news show, not a Vatican news show,” he said. On her FanPage, Nalesso defended her actions saying that she...

    In its latest issue of Dabiq magazine, “Break the cross,” the Islamic State is encouraging attacks against Christians, urging its “hidden soldiers” in the West to unleash attacks “without delay.” In opening, Dabiq 15 references recent attacks by jihadis in the United States (Orlando), France, Germany and Bangladesh, before suggesting the “cross-worshipers and democratic pagans of the West” should contemplate the “reasons behind the animosity and enmity held by Muslims for Westerners,” and should therefore repent by abandoning Christianity and “accepting Islam.

    The Battlefield Cross Dear Friends, For me, Memorial Day has always been a very special day. Maybe it's because grew up being taught to respect our military and understand what they sacrifice. Maybe it's because I learned at a young age that those who fight for our liberty and freedoms, themselves live lives without many of the liberties and freedoms that civilians take for granted.  Of course, maybe it's because I knew of those who served and died in Vietnam. Maybe it's because I was in the last Operation during the fall of Saigon in those last days of...

    Surveillance footage from nearby, she said, showed a late 1970s model Ford Thunderbird driving on a sidewalk. The vehicle description, along with Facebook posts from concerned community members, led police to Anthony Burrus, a 27-year-old Henderson resident. Burrus has been charged with criminal mischief in the first degree and leaving the scene of an accident. Online jail records do not list an attorney for him. Some of the crosses were embedded in the tires of his vehicle, she said. Police don't know if he deliberately drove over the plastic crosses, she said. "He said he didn't do it. He admitted...

    A Memorial Day display featuring crosses to honor fallen soldiers was removed from public property in Georgia after someone questioned whether the soldiers were all Christian. The 79 white, handmade crosses posted on public property along state Highway 92 in Hiram, Ga., were meant to represent the 79 Paulding County residents who died in America’s wars, according to town officials. But the crosses were abruptly taken down last Friday after someone called Hiram City Hall questioning whether the cross is an appropriate symbol for the memorial. Hiram Mayor Teresa Philyaw said the cross display, which she approved and planned, was...

    When amateur archaeologist Dennis Fabricius Holm got off work early last Friday and decided to spend a couple of hours searching a little field in Funen with his metal detector, little did he know he was about to make history. Holm stumbled across one of the most extraordinary finds in recent times near the little town of Aunslev when he discovered a crucifix that dates back about 1,100 years – Denmark’s oldest crucifix ever found. It could rewrite Danish history. “It’s a completely sensational find that dates back to the first half of the 900s,” Malene Refshauge Beck, a curator...
