    FYI, I’m going to be posting the Chaplet of Divine Mercy Novena every morning starting Monday, October 31 so that it ends on Election Day. I think we desperately need it. Does that sound okay? Or should I start it a day earlier so that it ends on the Monday before the election?

    IFB ^ | 10/27/16
    In Jesus’ day, there were two main political parties which ran Israel under Rome's oppressive reign. One was the Sadducee party and the other the Pharisee party. Both groups claimed to represent the Law of Moses and have the best interests of the people of Israel in mind. These two parties had opposing political and religious views and were at the opposite ends of the religious and political spectrum. In all honesty they both had little power under Rome’s iron hand, but that never stopped these two parties from trying to gain - the gentile occupied population of Israel’s –...

    The cross of Jesus is being lifted once more over many parts of Iraq, where for years Islamic State terrorists left a path of death and destruction. As a military campaign to rid the Mosul area of the Islamic state rages on, videos are surfacing of “the people of the cross” reclaiming their homes by raising makeshift wooden crosses over the churches and towns they were once forced to flee out of fear for their lives. The “people of the cross” was the term for Christians used by Islamic terrorists when they beheaded 21 Egyptian Christians in February 2015.

FRC launched a petition today at that calls on Governor Deal to "correct this egregious over-reach of the state into church affairs."

    The Chaldean Catholic archbishop of Erbil said that the United States government bears a moral responsibility towards Christians and other minorities in Iraq. Over 100,000 Christians fled to Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, as the Islamic State advanced on Mosul in 2014. Calling for American aid to the Mosul region as it is liberated from the Islamic State, Archbishop Bashar Warda said that the US government should “play a role in protecting the minorities, because we’ve seen that, due to this American intervention in 2003, they have a moral responsibility, really, to finish the whole job in a decent...

    A Christian nursing home in Switzerland must allow assisted suicide or lose its charitable statusA Swiss court has ruled that a Christian nursing home must either permit assisted suicide on its premises or give up its charitable status. The nursing home, which is run by the Salvation Army, the UK-based Christian charity, lost a legal challenge to new assisted suicide rules. The regulations, introduced about a year ago, compel charities caring for the sick and elderly to offer assisted suicide when a patient or resident requests it. The nursing home objected on the grounds that the law violated the core...

    One of the most important tasks of journalists is to learn to read “signals” in politics, and this week, the Italian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CEI) has sent up an unusually clear one. CEI has demonstrated that they not only have little interest in the spiritual nature of their role, but has this week officially thrown its collective lot in with the country’s most toxic anti-Catholics of the extreme far left. The Italian Catholic writer Miguel Cuartero Samperi wrote in the online journal Roma Giornale Online that CEI is joining with the militant extreme left Italian Radical Party in the...

    On Thursday, October 20, 2016, three Catholic institutions, one in New York, and two in Boston, held fundraising galas which reveal, effectively, the current, debilitated state of American Catholicism, and mark yet another milestone in its spiritual and moral decline. In all three venues, the sponsoring Catholic entity showcased public figures who promote the murder of pre-born children, the deformity of marriage, the normalization of sodomy, the corruption of minors with contraceptives, the imposition of gender ideology, the coercion of Catholic consciences in the matter of abortifacient coverage, and the legal punishment of Christians who refuse to service pseudo-marriage ceremonies....
  • No More Conservatives

    The trouble with the terms even when they were useful was that they were moving targets. One could only be a “conservative” or a “liberal” in comparison to someone else. It was a sliding scale, and your position on it depended on where you were standing on the line – or who was standing next to you. So, a guy like archbishop Gomez got called a “conservative” (or sometimes an “archconservative” depending on who was doing the labelling) when he went to Los Angeles to take over for the uber “liberal” heretic Mahoney. And when Gomez would say or do...

    The Rev. Samuel Rodriguez urged his fellow Hispanics in America to consider Hillary Clinton’s radical pro-abortion position before voting in November. Rodriguez, a strong pro-life advocate in the Hispanic American community and the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, emailed supporters Monday to explain how extreme Clinton’s abortion policies are, the Christian Post reports. “Latinos are pro-life. Latinos, whether they be Evangelical or Catholic, must never sacrifice truth on the altar of political expediency,” Rodriguez wrote. “By asking for our support, Sec. Clinton is asking us to sacrifice our most cherished values. She is asking us to defy...

    FULL TITLE: Black Pastor: Pro-Abortion “Hillary Clinton as President Will be an Unmitigated Disaster for Our Country” Four years ago Bishop E.W. Jackson released an explosive video, seen by millions, compelling black voters – especially Christians – to abandon the Democratic Party. In a new video released this weekend Jackson claims that poverty, violence and family breakdown in the inner cities, are the direct result of Democrat policies. The Bishop says, “Their policies have rewarded the absence of men in the home, disintegrated the black family, contributed to more black poverty, gangs, crime, violence and rampant drug addiction.” Speaking to...

    Now, Donald J. Trump is no Jesus - though at his best, he seems to be truly penitent for his shortcomings and interested in doing the will of God -- or at the very least, surrounds himself with the likes of men of God such as Mike Pence and Ben Carson - always a good sign. That being said, I believe this admonition from Christ can directly apply to tepid Trump supporters -- particularly those righteous people who deep down espouse what Trump/Pence stand for, but are too afraid to admit it or proclaim their support. Some are even afraid...

The Nov. 6 Rome march, dedicated to Pope Francis and Marco Pannella, the party’s long-serving and recently deceased leader, will end in a call for a prisoner amnesty and coincide with the Pope’s Jubilee of mercy for prisoners that day, according to Italian media reports.

I understand that the dinner is to raise money and everyone tries to...

They were largely a mix of atheists, Satanists and gays, and they proudly identified as such. What a coalition! I remember asking myself, “Why would homosexuals be so adamant about this — adamant enough to show up early in the morning to protest our event — when, for the most part, it’s not relevant to their lives, since they’re not having babies?” To this day, colleagues of mine who share the gospel outside...

    Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front Party, vowed that if she is elected the country’s president she would ban all public displays of religious symbols and clothing, including kippot. Le Pen made the statement during an interview on Sunday with France’s BFM-TV. She is expected to seek the country’s presidency in 2017. She heads the third-largest party in France. Le Pen is seeking to broaden an existing law, called the headscarf ban, that does not allow conspicuous displays of religious symbols in public schools to include all public areas. She called the ban a struggle against...

    Christians across America must express their outrage at the Ninth Circuit Court's ruling to uphold California's so called 'Reproductive FACT Act.' This decision will require 150 pro-life crisis pregnancy clinics across the state to promote abortion services to the women they serve. Since Roe v. Wade, privately funded crisis pregnancy centers across America have provided a refuge and an alternative to women who might have otherwise chosen abortion. They are vitally important in the fight to promote a culture of life, adoption and health. This ruling now forces these clinics to violate their sincerely held religious beliefs, and it is...

    Adrian Rogers speaks of four things in Psalm 80 which are applicable today in America: 1. Great national despair (Psalm 80:4-6) Spiritual sterility – prayers were given up to God out of unrepentant hearts. These prayers actually made God angry. The prayer of an unrepentant people is an insult to Almighty God. Religion without Righteousness is repugnant to God. America is praying but the sin of America is running over. 2. Personal Sorrow Sorrow follows sin as night follows the day. 3. National Shame Our enemies laugh at us. No longer is America respectfed for her ideals. 4. Glorious National...

    Again, I cannot stress the importance of fasting and praying for this election enough. All those who are Christians please fast and pray to do what is truly essential for the winning of this election, and also for the benefit of the good to come if He allows for us to win this election. The Bible clearly states that it is The LORD that raises up and also brings down rulers. In The Bible whenever something was critically important for the survival and/or well being of the people of God the people prevailed when a time of fasting and praying...

    When Jen Hatmaker speaks to stadiums full of Christian women, she regales them with stories about her five children and her garden back in Austin, Tex. — and stays away from politics. But recently she took to Facebook and Instagram to blast Donald J. Trump as a “national disgrace,” and remind her legions of followers that there are other names on the ballot in November. “Trump has consistently normalized violence, sexual deviance, bigotry and hate speech,” she said in an email interview. “I wouldn’t accept this from my seventh-grade son, much less from a potential leader of the free world.”...
