    OKLAHOMA CITY — A New Jersey woman who was arrested during a 2014 protest of a satanic “Black Mass” has sued Oklahoma City and police a month after her municipal convictions were thrown out. Joan Bell, a longtime activist who said she has been arrested hundreds of times, claims that her civil rights were violated when she was wrongfully arrested. Bell, 68, was arrested during the protest after she refused to cease kneeling while saying the rosary on a landing at the top of the north steps of the Civic Center Music Hall. She said she attended the Sept. 21,...

    College football Saturdays are back, so let's stop and ponder a journalism mystery linked to the new football coaching regime at the University of Virginia. The feature at The Daily Progress in Charlottesville is pretty direct, starting with the headline: "Part of the Bronco way is no work on Sunday." Bronco is not a reference to a mascot, in Wahoo land, but to the school's new head coach – Bronco Mendenhall. Things are not off to a good start there, so times are a bit tense. Here is the overture: The day after Virginia’s season-opening loss to Richmond, Ruffin McNeill,...

    The Life Institute ^ | 8/25/2016 | Niamh Ui Bhriain
    Thanks to DCLeaks.com and the work of journalist Kevin Jones the truth is finally out there. George Soros, a U.S. billionaire and one of the richest people in the world, has been secretly pumping funds into the push to legalise abortion in Ireland. In a private memo, clearly never intended to be seen by the Irish people, Soros’ foundation takes aim at Irish laws protecting unborn babies, and commits to funding three groups who will work ‘collectively’ to legalise abortion – Amnesty Ireland, the Abortion Rights Campaign, and the IFPA. The revelations are hugely embarrassing for abortion campaigners. Under pressure...

It takes less than five minutes to figure it out, for those who believed that theoretically it should work and that it was worth to build it to convince themselves....

It has been pummeled with Muslim refugees, mostly from Somalia, for more than a decade, and its citizens have been brow beaten into a form of politically correct submission to Islam, says former Rep.

He belted out that loud, diabolical laugh that only one man could deliver. It was...

    Americans’ disapproval of Muslims has jumped to 45.5 percent from just over 26 percent 10 years ago, the last time the question was asked. The study’s authors — sociologists Penny Edgell, Douglas Hartmann, Evan Stewart and Joseph Gerteis — describe the jump in disapproval of Muslims as a major change and are focusing now on identifying reasons for it. The study was written from data collected in 2014 from 2,500 participants. It was published in the current issue of Social Forces journal. The previous study was published in 2006 by three of the same authors.

    “A US judge has agreed to delay the terror trial of a former Sydney resident until after the US presidential election after it was claimed ‘virulent anti-Muslim rhetoric’ could dash his chances of an impartial jury.” There are several false assumptions in play here. One is that people are suspicious of Muslims because of “anti-Muslim rhetoric,” when in reality any suspicion of Muslims that actually exists stems from jihad terror. Another is that Trump’s call for limiting Muslim immigration in some way so as to try to prevent jihad terror attacks in the United States constitutes “anti-Muslim rhetoric” in the...

    Millions of hajj pilgrims are preparing to head home, after five days performing ancient rites, revering a God omnipresent in the city of Mecca. They have stoned figurative devils, they have slept in the world’s largest tent city, they have drunk water from the Zamzam well together: a heaving throng of nearly two million people from all over the world. Circling the Kaaba, the black cubic epicentre of this sanctuary city, pilgrims would have looked up to see one of the minarets of the Grand Mosque, dwarfed by Abraj al-Bait clocktower, a much-maligned luxury hotel and commercial complex and the...

Only three years old, Trail Life USA, the Christian answer to the politically correct Boy Scouts of America, is operating 700 troops in 48 states, with nearly 30,000 troop members. It’s still small compared to the BSA, which began in 1910 and claims more than two million members. But Trail Life could be on the verge of far more growth as the culture descends into madness and parents seek a haven for their impressionable sons.

    One quick observation: by labelling a large segment of Americans as "irredeemable," Hillary is denying the redeeming power of God through Jesus Christ. I am not a Christian scholar, but I think that one Christian tenet is that everyone, however vile, is redeemable through Salvation (which is loosely synonymous with redemption). (Please, someone correct me if I am wrong.) Beside the chilling tone of her remark, it strikes me as symptomatic of a Godless worldview. After all, one name for Jesus is "Christ the Redeemer." Hillary seems oblivious to all of this.

    A recent meeting between France’s Muslim community and the government was presented as an effort to open a new chapter in relations with the country’s followers of Islam after a string of jihadist attacks and the damaging burqini row had left deep scars. […] Mohammed Moussaoui, president of the Union of French Mosques (UMF) and honorary president of the French Council of Muslim Faith attended the recent talks with the government and says France and the French people must come to terms with Islam being visible on the streets.

    The Imaginative Conservative ^ | Sept. 3, 2016 | Dwight Longenecker
    Walker Percy and Flannery O’Connor agreed that “tenderness leads to the gas chambers,” and what they were trying to get through our thick heads is that tenderness without truth is tyranny. As Rodney Stark has pointed out in The Rise of Christianity, the Roman Empire was a harsh, unforgiving, cruel, and relentless society in which to live. Women were little better than possessions, children were considered undeveloped human beings. Slavery, violence, bloodshed, and revenge mingled with fire, famine, flood, pestilence, and plague. In the midst of the horror Christians rescued discarded babies, despised abortion, loved their spouses, tended the sick,...

    New studies have failed to find even a single positive benefit to spanking children and a near endless amount of horrible effects. Dr. Elizabeth Gershoff joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss her latest study, refuting the common pro-spanking arguments, why social justice warriors have nothing to do with less aggressive parenting, associating love with physical abuse and ending the escalating cycle of violence in relationships. Dr. Elizabeth Gershoff is a developmental psychologist, in addition to being a Faculty Research Associate and Associate Professor of Human Development and Family Sciences at University of Texas at Austin. She recently published a revolutionary new...

    At a time when it often feels like we are more and more being split up into “us” and “them”, King Harald of Norway is being hailed for a speech that highlights our commonalities and embraces diversity and acceptance. […] “Norwegians come from the north of the country, from the middle, from the south and all the other regions. Norwegians are also immigrants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Poland, Sweden, Somalia and Syria,” the king said. “Norwegians are girls who love girls. Boys who love boys. And boys and girls who love each other,” King Harald said. “Norwegians believe in God, Allah,...

    The Guardian ^ | 2 September 2016 | Peter Bradshaw
    Bad acting, clunky camerawork and overheating headsets … VR’s first feature-length 360-degree movie is no miracle – but the medium might be a blessing The e acting? Dire. The direction? Awful. The adaptation? Conservative and pedestrian. In conventional terms, everything about this new retelling of the Jesus story – showing here in Venice in an abbreviated 40-minute cut – is ropey. It is all too clearly influenced by Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ:

    GatesofVienna: Refugee?The so called ‘refugee’ crisis is a crisis of young fit males of military age forcing their way into places they have no right to be, at the behest of people who have no right to invite them, on behalf of people who don’t want them. However I am given to understand that Kurdish females are fighting alongside their menfolk for the right to their own country. Excuse me if I am cynical. "...[snip]..." Are we trying to make the West fail? When Jews were in need of a place of safety, the iron doors clanged shut, and...
