    China will be the "world's most Christian nation" in 15 years, according to a report from the London Sunday Telegraph. "It is going to be less than a generation.

There are about 1.3 billion people living in the country, and in 2010, 58 million of them were Protestant Christians. Yang, a professor of sociology at Purdue University and author of Religion in China: Survival and Revival under Communist Rule, estimated that by 2025, the number of Christians will have...

    CENTRAL PARK — A group of teens, who sources said were between 12 and 14, was being questioned for a Central Park mugging spree in which they are suspected of taking an iPad and iPhone from two women and slugging a man who refused to hand over his cash Monday morning, police said.

The man managed to escape to Fifth Avenue and...

    Just ten days after becoming CEO of web company Mozilla, Brendan Eich resigned after drawing the ire of LGBT advocates. In 2008, Eich donated money to the Proposition 8 campaign, an effort around legislation to make same-sex marriage illegal in California. When he was announced as the new Mozilla head, members of the LGBT community and even Mozilla employees expressed their dissatisfaction through social media and called for Eich’s resignation. Many have since spoken out against the backlash calling it unfair. On Monday’s “NewsOne Now,” Roland Martin was joined by a panel of guests to discuss the news, whether the...

The young girl, who was a servant in Saudi Arabia professed that Jesus Christ was her personal savior.

    To read all of our reports on crony capitalism in Texas, click here.Crony capitalism is very similar to the seven-headed Hydra of Greek mythology. Politicians, if and when they do decide to tackle the issue, may cut off one slush fund, but two (or more) slush funds end up replacing it. To destroy crony capitalism, it’s not enough to cut off the head; you have seal the body off from growing any more heads. The Texas Constitution was originally designed to be sealed off from such voracious heads springing up from the body of government. In the mid-19th century after...

Meanwhile, 36 percent of U.S. adults watch news video online. This is about the same audience percentage that gets its news from Facebook or cable news channels, Pew reported. Most of this demographic is comprised of younger people. CNN, Fox News and MSNBC were all down in prime time viewership though Fox still led the pack. Some 22.6 million viewers watch the nightly network...

    Human Events ^ | 3/26/14 | Neil McCabe
    As states like New Jersey, where it is now legal, and Massachusetts, where there is a move to legalize online gaming, Adelson is convinced that online gambling competes with his brick-and-mortar poker rooms. To this end, he is calling on the Congress, and specifically his Republican friends, to outlaw his competition. The ask has put Republicans in a precarious situation where they are forced to choose between philosophical principles, like federalism, and their opposition to crony capitalism against the obligation to hear out and support Adelson. Texas Gov. J. Richard “Rick” Perry, for instance, was once one of the leading...

  • The Apostasy of World Vision

    Last June, World Vision U.S president Richard Stearns stated that, “No one ever died of gay marriage,” thereby trivializing the importance of the issue, as if it contrasted with the organization’s mission of providing tangible relief to suffering humanity. Today, he went much further, claiming that this radical, unbiblical move is actually a “very narrow policy change” that should be viewed as “symbolic not of compromise but of [Christian] unity.” What? World Vision redefines the nature of marriage – the most fundamental institution of society, ordained by God in Genesis 2 as the lifelong union of a man and a...

    World Vision's American branch will no longer require its more than 1,100 employees to restrict their sexual activity to marriage between one man and one woman. Abstinence outside of marriage remains a rule. But a policy change announced Monday [March 24] will now permit gay Christians in legal same-sex marriages to be employed at one of America's largest Christian charities. In an exclusive interview, World Vision U.S. president Richard Stearns explained to Christianity Today the rationale behind changing this "condition of employment," whether financial or legal pressures were involved, and whether other Christian organizations with faith-based hiring rules should follow...

Helsinki traditionally maintained friendly relations with Moscow, Niinisto said adding he intended to continue bilateral meetings with Russia if it was in Finland’s interests, though last week's EU summit recommended that EU members cancel such meetings. Niinisto also pointed out the importance of continued negotiations to avert a deeper crisis in Ukraine.

They create a lustful atmosphere infecting society and are, in some countries, considered illegal. And while I particularly love this Utah mom’s approach to lighten the mood, I doubt this writer smiled as she wrote about the controversy. Earlier this week, I learned that Haven Middle School students are planning a protest against a ban on leggings. A Haven parent...

    Water levels in the Great Lakes are expected to continue a steady recovery this year, courtesy of widespread ice cover that is slowing evaporation and snowfall that has approached record amounts in some cities, federal experts said Wednesday. The siege of polar air that has gripped the region this winter has caused the most extensive freeze-over of the lakes since the record-setting year of 1979, when nearly 95 percent of their surface area solidified. On Tuesday, the ice cover reached its highest point since then - 91 percent, said George Leshkevich, a physical scientist with the federal Great Lakes Environmental...

  • Obama Silences Critics With IRS

    President Obama is using the Internal Revenue Service to silence employers unhappy about Obamacare. That’s the hidden purpose behind the employer mandate delay announced on February 10th. The administration released 227 pages of mind-numbing regulations ridiculously billed as making “ the compliance process simpler and easier” for employers. Hidden in the gobbledy-gook (on pages 125-6) is a requirement that employers sign a statement to the IRS, meaning under penalty of perjury, that they have not reduced the number of employees or cut hours to shield themselves from the costs of Obamacare. Democrats running for re-election this fall are desperate to...

Its purpose, as reported by AllGov.com, was to prevent a monopoly of the airwaves: “Concerned over the growing power of large corporations and conglomerates…President Franklin Roosevelt wanted the FCC to make sure the country’s budding mass communications systems did not fall into the hands of a select few.” Today’s interpretation would add the caveat “unless that monopoly is the government.” Thursday, news broke that the FCC plans to plant “researchers” (read “agents”) in every print newsroom, internet news outlet, television...
