    BOCA RATON, Fla. (ChurchMilitant.com) - Catholics celebrate after a satanic display fails to go up near a public nativity scene in Florida. In November, nearly 50,000 people signed a petition started by Return to Order — an organization associated with the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) — asking the city of Boca Raton to shut down a satanic display in Sanborn Square. The satanic display, consisting of an upside-down pentagram with the words "In Satan we trust" and "May the children hail Satan," has been erected for the last two years by Preston Smith,...

    Two graduates from Harvard Divinity School (where else?) began a podcast called ‘Harry Potter and the Sacred Text.’ Some people are taking it way too seriously, Since time immemorial, people have found certain things profoundly fulfilling. Things like faith and family have helped us to look outside ourselves and to a higher power, making us feel whole. As young people today turn away from these things, it is no wonder that they are feeling empty and end up searching for meaning in fruitless and increasingly strange pursuits. One of the unlikely places to which they are turning to fill that...

    Basic laws exist as to what is right and what makes sense. Indulging in moonbattery entails rejecting these laws so as to posture on behalf of a deranged ideology. This has consequences: A preschool that leases space from the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder is shutting down at the end of the month after the church congregation voted to become a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants facing deportation. “It put us out of business,” said Active Boulder Kids owner Kristen Argow Heaton. The presumably far-left Unitarian congregation voted overwhelmingly to convert part of the building into illegal immigrant living quarters. Argow...

    Racist flyers have painted a Sikh candidate running for mayor of a New Jersey town as a terrorist. The advertisements, left on car windshields in Hoboken, were directed at City Councilman Ravi Bhalla just days before Election Day on Tuesday. 'Don't let TERRORISM take over our Town!' read the larger message on the flyers, placed directly above a photo of Bhalla in his turban. The flyer used the majority of an advertisement originally run by fellow mayoral candidate Michael DeFusco that attacked Bhalla over an alleged conflict of interest and added the larger print.

    PJ Media ^ | 10/24/2017 | John Ellis
    The media has talked quite a bit about the decline of Christianity in America, and not without cause. Between 2007 and 2014, the number of Americans who identified as Christian dropped from 78.4 percent to 70.6 percent. The drop is mainly because mainline Protestant denominations are shedding members at an unsustainable rate, but conservative denominations may be facing new "competitors" for the hearts and souls of millennials. Only 56 percent of millennials identify as Christians (as opposed to 70 percent of Gen X-ers and 78 percent of Baby Boomers). Many of the millennials who are rejecting Christianity are turning...

    A Missouri woman who is an adherent of the Satanic Temple won a victory in court last week in her quest to show that state abortion law violates her religious beliefs. The Western District Court of Appeals ruled in her favor Tuesday, writing that her constitutional challenge — rare for its basis in religion — presented “a contested matter of right that involves fair doubt and reasonable room for disagreement.” The woman, identified as Mary Doe in court documents, argued that her religion does not adhere to the idea that life begins at conception, and, because of that, the prerequisites...

    Abortion activists are thanking Satanists this week for making it easier for Missouri women to abort their unborn babies. Together, the abortion giant Planned Parenthood and The Satanic Temple have been fighting viciously to promote abortions and block efforts to protect unborn babies and moms in Missouri. “Abortion access in Missouri is getting easier thanks to Planned Parenthood and Satanists,” a headline at the liberal news site Slate said Tuesday. Breitbart reports the Satanists and the largest baby killing business in the country managed to gain a few victories in the state through their joint efforts this year. For the...

    August 30, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A Spanish bishop apologized for an event in his diocese during which a Hindu deity was processed around a Catholic church and the priest who allowed it resigned from his position as Vicar General. However, the bishop said Hindu beliefs don't need to be "rebuked" and that wasn't the point of his statement. It's unclear whether the priest, Father Juan José Mateos Castro, will remain in his position at that parish, Our Lady of Africa. Bishop Rafael Zornoza Boy of the Diocese of Cádiz y Ceuta issued the apology, portions of which Crux translated. A...

    The Chinese news outlet Global Times is reporting that a monk who saves babies from abortion and then brings them up has come into conflict with authorities. Master Daolu, a former businessman turned monk, believes, like many Buddhists, that the baby has a soul fm conception, and that abortion is murder. However, he doesn’t just persuade women not to have abortions – he provides shelter and care for them and their babies.

    The abortion business Planned Parenthood managed to find a few clergy to help promote its pro-abortion agenda in a new video. Planned Parenthood is desperate for support after Americans elected a large group of pro-life leaders to the United States Congress last fall. Efforts to cut off millions of taxpayer funds to the abortion chain are under way. In an appeal to religious individuals, Planned Parenthood produced a new video this week where four pro-abortion clergy members – two Baptist pastors, a Unitarian Universalist pastor and a Jewish rabbi — urged people to support the abortion business, according to the...

    “7-month pregnant gang rape survivor denied a late-term abortion by the Gujurat high court in India.” With those kinds of news stories, we regularly see organizations like Amnesty International and Planned Parenthood International utilizing such stories to demand the legalization of abortion through all nine of months of pregnancy – not only for rape, but for any reason. Rape is just the key to open wide the abortion door. But what if you learned the rest of the story? What if there is more to these stories than is initially being reported? This particular pregnant rape survivor’s treatment is amongst...

(ChurchMilitant.com) - Minnesota will soon be hosting the country's first public, permanent satanic monument. The Satanic Temple (TST), headed by Detroit native Doug Mesner (also known by his public pseudonym Lucien Greaves), announced May 5 that Belle Plaine had approved a monument for Veterans' Memorial Park that will consist of a two-foot-high, black steel cube, with inverted pentagrams etched into its sides and a dark soldier's helmet overturned on top. It's being called the "Baphometic Bowl of Wisdom," named after the half-man, half-goat demon worshiped by satanists....

    A pair of Tennessee rehab facilities run by members of the Church of Scientology have been shut down after police discovered that patients there were being held against their will. The facilities in Cannon County came under investigation after police received a 911 call from a man who claimed to be trapped in one of the facilities. When they came to investigate, they found the man locked in a cabin with no way to escape. The facilities were little more than a handful of cabins and a double wide trailer concealed in the middle of the wilderness. Police described the...

    It's become increasingly apparent that Donald Trump's administration wants to make religion inescapable, even for secularists. Education secretary Betsy DeVos has donated millions of dollars to private religious schools and once described her education reform as a mission to "advance God's kingdom." Vice President Mike Pence, a born-again evangelical Christian who cast the tie-breaking vote in DeVos' Senate confirmation, also has a history of using politics to advance his religious agenda; last month he became the first vice president to speak at the annual anti-abortion March for Life, and has long waged war against Planned Parenthood in his home state...

    Those who don't like Donald Trump and the current Republican administration are mobilizing in all sorts of ways. They're speaking up in town halls and calling their representatives. They're organizing protests and demonstrations. And, for the magically-inclined, they're casting spells. Starting at midnight on Friday, witches around the country are calling for a mass spell to be cast on Donald Trump every night of a waning crescent moon until he's driven from office. The spell was publicized by Michael M. Hughes, who told ELLE.com that it was tweaked from multiple spells he saw going around private witchcraft groups. He published...

    WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - According to reports circulating on social media, a group of witches are planning a mass witchcraft spell to curse President Trump and get him "removed from office." The curse will also extend "to all those who abet him." The spell is set to take place February 24 at midnight, and is supposed to continue at "midnight on every waning crescent moon until he is removed from office." A Facebook page has been created for participants to offer input — although Christians are also leaving comments promoting "the power of Jesus" to counteract their efforts. The proclaimed binding...

    A Satanic Temple, a liberal anti-Christian group that self-proclaims to represent “compassion and empathy,” is offering hugs and kisses in exchange for donations that fund two pro-abortion lawsuits filed against the State of Missouri, the International Business Times reports. “You might want to present a person you approach with a Satanic Valentine’s card as means to courteously explain the event,” the Satanist group told the International Business Times about its efforts to recruit participants. Pledges are granted based on the number of hugs and kisses received by participants on Valentine’s Day, the Libertarian Republic reported. In the example cited in...
