    AUSTIN, Texas –  A Houston grand jury investigating undercover footage of Planned Parenthood found no wrongdoing Monday by the abortion provider but instead indicted anti-abortion activists involved in making the videos that provoked outrage among Republican leaders nationwide. David Daleiden, founder of the Center for Medical Progress, was indicted on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs. Another activist, Sandra Merritt, was also indicted on a charge of tampering with a governmental record.

    The headline at The Clarion Project reads: "Christian Persecution in 2015 at ‘Levels Akin to Ethnic Cleansing'." The sub-heading notes that 2015 was "the most violent year in modern history for Christians." It takes one’s breath away to see the blunt truth summed up like that. And the world is turning a blind eye. The article the references a piece at Open Doors that provides an overview of the rise of Christian persecution around the world. (See summary below.) In 2015, more than 7,000 Christians were killed because of their faith (twice as many as the year before). And the...

    At the same time, Barack Hussein Obama is trying to bring in up to 200,000 Syrian Muslim so-called 'refugees,' but apparently has decided there is no room in America for 12 Chaldean Christians who are being persecuted and slaughtered in Iraq by ISIS. What's more, Chaldean leaders in the US were advised by the attorneys representing the Christian 'detainees' NOT TO COMMENT on their deportation. Or what? Nearly half of the 27 Iraqi Christians the Obama administration has been holding for the past six months at an ICE detention center in Otay Mesa, California, are set to be deported in...

    “Dhimmitude,” like takfir and sharia, is a word of which Americans were happily ignorant not so long ago. Events, unfortunately, have expanded our Arabic vocabulary. As with other Islamic concepts, the meaning of dhimmitude, even its existence, is contested among Muslims. And misuse is not always merely semantic for those prone to issuing fatwas.No matter how nuanced the definition, dhimmitude always entailed a degree of subordination under Muslim rule. Historically, the dhimmi accepted second-class status as an alternative to conversion, death, or enslavement. For the privilege of being tolerated in lands under the Prophet’s sway, Christians, Jews, Hindus—any infidel—renounced...

    International protests are being planned throughout the month of January after the Norwegian government removed five children from their Christian parents under accusations of "religious indoctrination." Protests are planned for the rest of January in the Czech Republic, Latvia, Austria, Romania, Spain, Ireland, India, Poland, and Australia, along with several other countries to speak out against the recent separation of five Christian children from their parents at the hands of government officials. In November 2015, Norway's child welfare services, known as Barnevernet, removed five children, including three sons and two daughters, from parents Ruth and Marius Bodnariu, residents of Naustdal...

Although the California-based ministry, which works in over 60 countries, stated last January that 2014 was the worst year for Christian persecution than any other time in modern history, the organization said during the rollout of its 2016 World Watch List that 2015 surpassed 2014 as the deadliest year for Christians worldwide.

    When the media reported that Ted Cruz wanted to only admit Syrian Christian refugees into the United States, the junior senator from the Lone Star state found himself once again in the midst of a Texas-size media tornado. It turns out that a case can be made for giving Syrian Christians, if not preferential treatment, then at least more consideration than they now get.

    It should be obvious to the majority whose eyes are open that we are likely not returning to the days where morality, discernment and common sense were attributes which were pursued with a purpose. It is sobering, yet amazing to consider the rapid downward spiral we are experiencing as a nation, as right becomes wrong, and wrong becomes right. With American leadership making no bones about its bias in favor of Islam and against traditional Christianity, believers need to get used to this fact and deal with a new paradigm that Judeo-Christian beliefs and values are no longer held in...

    Child welfare services in Norway have reportedly removed five Christian children from their parents' home and placed them into foster care after the parents were accused of radicalizing and indoctrinating their children with Christianity. According to the British-based Christian Institute, Norway's child protection services, known as the Barnevernet, seized the three sons and two daughters of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu in mid-November. Although the family wasn't quite sure at the time why their children were being taken away from them, their lawyer discovered that the parents were being charged with Christian indoctrination. The family's ordeal began on Nov. 16 when...

Over the last 6 ½ years, the US Armed Forces has been hollowed out by Obama, his Social Experiment On Diversity has severely fractured unit cohesiveness, his “Politically Correct Policies” have negatively affected unit morale, and the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US military is being degraded.

    Last April, police in Sicily reported that Muslim migrants hurled as many as 53 Christians overboard during a crossing from Libya. The motive was that the victims "professed the Christian faith while the aggressors were Muslim." Another report cited a boy seen praying to the Judeo-Christian God. Muslims commanded him to stop, saying "Here, we only pray to Allah." Eventually the Muslims "went mad," in the words of a witness, started screaming "Allahu Akbar!" and began hurling Christians into the sea. It gets worse. When Christian refugees finally do make it to Western shores, they continue to be attacked by...

    Most Americans tend to agree that Abraham Lincoln was one of this countrys better presidents, having saved the nation from imploding on itself with the Civil War. Former IRS chief Lois Lerner, however, does not apparently have the same thoughts about keeping the South in the union. Look my view is that Lincoln was our worst president not our best, Lerner wrote in 2014. He should (have) let the south go. We really do seem to have 2 totally different mindsets. The Senate Finance Committee released a report yesterday that examined 1.5 million pages of IRS emails. A significant focus...

    Kentucky clerk Kim Davis will return to work in Rowan County on Monday, her lawyers said today. Davis was jailed in Grayson, Kentucky, for nearly one week after she refused a judge's order to issue marriage licenses, including to same-sex couples. She was released from jail Tuesday and has spent today going through the hundreds of letters sent to her during her six days in jail, according to a statement from Liberty Counsel, which represents Davis. "I am deeply moved by all those who prayed for me. All I can say is that I am amazed and very grateful," Davis...

    Can your religion legally excuse you from doing part of your job? This is one of the questions in the Kentucky County Clerk marriage certificate case. But it also arises in lots of other cases for instance, the Muslim flight attendant who doesnt want to serve alcohol and who filed a complaint on Tuesday with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over the airlines denial of an exemption. The question has also arisen before with regard to: * Nurses who had religious objections to being involved in abortions (even just to washing instruments that would be used in abortions); *...

    At the end of World War II, the Jewish survivors of Europes Holocaust found that nearly every door was closed to them. Tell Me Where Can I Go? was a popular Yiddish song at the time. Decades later, the Christians of the Middle East face the same problem, and the Obama administration is keeping the door shut. America is about to accept 9000 Syrian Muslims, refugees of the brutal war between the Assad regime and its Sunni opposition, which includes ISIS, Al Qaeda, and various other militias. That number is predicted to increase each year. There are no Christian refugees...

    So this is how the game is played. Leftist operatives in the courts (supreme and state) create unconstitutional laws to further their anti-God agenda. Then leftists say those who disobey their lawless laws are not behaving like Christians and good Americans. Many on our side fall for it. The SCOTUS' ruling on Obamacare and homosexual marriage means the Constitution will now say whatever leftists want it to say. Folks, do you realize that based on this new precedent, the left can make anything they want a law? Incest, pedophilia, bestiality, and so on?

    Not only is jailed Kentucky clerk Kim Davis citing her religious beliefs for denying marriage licenses to gay couples... In other states, according to USA Today: In Alabama, as many as 10 counties have stopped issuing licenses altogether as of Wednesday. State law says that probate judges "may" issue the licenses rather than "shall."And in North Carolina, more than 30 county magistrates have refused to perform gay marriages under a law that says officials can refrain from conducting marriage-related activities.

    As a defiant Kentucky clerk sat in jail Friday, choosing indefinite imprisonment over licensing gay marriages, her lawyers approached the microphones outside and compared her to Dr. Martin Luther King. Around the country, other supporters reached for Biblical heroes, comparing her to Silas and Daniel, imprisoned for their faith and rescued by God. It's precisely the narrative gay rights advocates had hoped to avoid. But as Davis' mug shot rocketed around the Internet, it became clear that the gay rights movement must battle this idea that Christianity is under siege, said Kenneth Upton, senior counsel for Lambda Legal, a law...

    Rowan County, Ky., is a lesson for America in how not to resolve social conflict. The local head clerk is sitting in jail, and a judge has ordered her deputy clerks to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in her absence.When the Supreme Court redefined marriage for the nation in an activist decision this June, it took the issue out of the democratic process and made it much harder for citizens to navigate our differences on this fundamental institution. Both sides of the debate knew the decision would have significant social effects. For civil servants like clerks who issue marriage...

    ASHLAND, Ky. (CBSDC/AP) A defiant county clerk was sent to jail for contempt Thursday after insisting that her conscience will not allow her to follow a federal judges orders to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Gods moral law conflicts with my job duties, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis told U.S. District Judge David Bunning. You cant be separated from something thats in your heart and in your soul. The judge said she left him with no alternative but to jail her, since fines alone would not change her mind. A deputy escorted her out of the courtroom, although...
