    If you keep predicting something — maybe you’ll get it right someday? End Times Prophecies has declared the world will end on July 29 in a chain of events caused by the “polar flip” phenomenon. The group says the polar shift will trigger worldwide tremors, setting off multiple earthquakes and a “rolling cloud” that will destroy the world.

Abdelmalik Petitjean was one of the two Islamic State attackers who killed the priest before using nuns as human shields in a bid to flee police. Petitjean had pledged allegiance to ISIS and was seen on video declaring his place as a soldier for the terrorist group. However, despite his connections to the extremists, the young...

The incident occurred at the naturist arer of the Strandbad Xantener Südsee in Geldern in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia on Wednesday last week - two days after an Afghan refugee attacked five people on a train in Bavaria and four days before an Isis supporter blew himself up at a wine bar in the small town of Ansbach.

    A Buddhist monk living in Lafayette was sentenced Monday (July 25) to 30 months in prison for taking more than $263,463 from his own temple to gamble at a casino. U.S. District Judge Donald Walter handed down the penalty on Khang Nguyen Le, 36, a Vietnamese citizen who had pleaded guilty to wire fraud. Walter, whom President Ronald Reagan appointed to the Western District court, also ordered Le to pay full restitution. Le might also face deportation to Vietnam after release from prison, authorities said. From 2010 to October 2014, Le was president, presiding monk and resident of the temple...

The data from Pew Research, the leading non-partisan US social attitudes survey company, will serve as another sharp warning to Europe’s political elites about the growing strength of grassroots sentiment over the migration issue.

    Right there in an open forum in Trinidad, Imam Muhammed Luqman Abdul-Latif proposed temporary teen marriage as a way to cure promiscuity. What Abdul-Latif is preaching is a Shia practice called mut’ah, in which a man could have a wife for a short period of time while when traveling long distances. The woman needs permission from her father and a dowry is paid for the “service.” It is much like prostitution of women and is termed a “rental” of the woman. In defining “rental,” the Islamic jurisprudents say: “It is to gain possession of a benefit in exchange for a...

"Will you break away from Satan and his evil deeds?" pastor Gottfried Martens asks the Iranian refugee. "Will you break away from Islam?" "Yes," Zonoobi fervently replies. Spreading his hands in blessing, Martens then baptizes the man "in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost." Mohammed is now Martin — no longer Muslim, but Christian. Zonoobi, a carpenter from the Iranian city of Shiraz, arrived in Germany with his wife and two children five months ago. He...

    Analysts generally consider military influence in politics and society to be a critical impediment to the development of democratic political and civil rights and freedoms. According to Freedom House, for example, greater military involvement in government politics decreases civil liberties and political rights in any given country; this infringes on a government's ability to develop democracy. Turkey may be an exception. The military has deep roots in society, and its influence predates the founding of the republic. But rather than hinder democratization, Turkey's military remains an important component in the checks and balances that protect Turkish democracy. Herein lies...

    Antonio Nogara died in 2014. His text about the papal kidnap plot divulged to his father was discovered only after his death and has only now been published. The publication confirms several post-war rumours about the intended kidnapping of the controversial Pontiff who was often called 'Hitler's Pope' because of his seeming reluctance to speak out about the Nazi Holocaust of the Jews. Critics allege that the time he spent in pre-war Germany made him sympathetic to the Nazi cause. But his supporters say he walked a fine line between caring for his flock and trying not to make their...

    The assembled Presbyterians no doubt thought they were being wonderfully open-minded and ecumenical; they did not realize that Wajidi Said was openly proselytizing for Islam. “Lead us on the straight path” is straight from the Fatihah, the Opening, the Qur’an’s first chapter and the most common and oft-repeated prayer in Islam. Islamic scholars identify the straight path with Islam itself. And in invoking “Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad,” Said sounded beautifully ecumenical himself to the ranked Presbyterians, aglow in their bloomin’ primness, but in reality he was reflecting the Islamic belief that those figures and the other Biblical...

It's getting awfully hard for the media to keep being indignant about Trump's proposed Muslim ban, as long as Muslims keep blowing things up and shooting people. I'm assuming here that The Washington Post has not already ruled the Muslims who blew up the Istanbul Airport to be self-hating gays infected by America's culture of homophobia. It turns out, Omar Mateen, the Orlando nightclub shooter, also wasn't a self-hating gay, despite media excitement over that rumor. The FBI has...

    Donald Trump, according to a new report, has accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. No, you didn't accidentally click on The Onion. That's a factual statement, according to a well-respected evangelical faith leader. Dr. James Dobson, who was among the more than 900 evangelical faith leaders who met with the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting in New York City, says it happened fairly recently. He also said he knew who led the businessman to Christ. "I don't know when it was, but it has not been long," Dobson told Godfactor's Michael Anthony in an exclusive interview. "I believe he really made...

    “America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance. It is not. It is suffering from tolerance: tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos. Our country is not nearly so much overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broad-minded. The man who can make up his mind in an orderly way, as a man might make up his bed, is called a bigot; but a man who cannot make up his mind, any more than he can make up for lost time, is called tolerant and broad-minded.” Those words appear to...

    Piss Christ? Piss Koran! by Matthew Bracken Part One: Dark Till DawnMike Dolan came out of the subway, hit the sidewalk and set out down the west side of 6th Avenue with a purposeful stride. Midtown Manhattan never truly sleeps, particularly just before a Monday morning, but compared to what it would be like in a couple of hours, it was geared way down. No tourists yet, mostly delivery trucks and vans. All lanes were northbound, because it was 6th Avenue.Mike was showered and clean shaven, every item on him and in his possession carefully considered. The white hard hat...

    I meant to post this a couple days ago but have been busy. I noticed on twitter that Amex is now using the symbol stolen from the Scripture by the homosexual community--the rainbow--to symbolize the company's avatar. the company American Express says it is commemorating homosexual behaviour throughout the month. in return, for the month I will be using one of my Visa cards--even though I use Amex regularly because of a decent return I've enjoyed via its "points" program. I urge any FREEPers who use credit responsibly to do the same.

The percentage in favor of euthanasia grew from 53 percent in 1973 to 65 percent in 1990. […] While 69 percent of Americans agreed that doctors should be allowed to end patients’ lives by painless means, only 51 percent...

  • Brexit Comes to America, Ryan Challenger Mounts Immigration Billboard

    Breitbart: Brexit Comes to America, Ryan Challenger Mounts Immigration BillboardFollowing last night’s historic Brexit vote, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s primary challenger, Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen, seems to have taken a page from the playbook of the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) with the launch of a new billboard campaign. On Friday morning, Nehlen’s campaign went live with a new billboard in Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin that is reminiscent of the distinctive UKIP-style campaign. The ad reads: “Radical Islam Kills Americans. Vote YES for Immigration Control. Vote NO for Paul Ryan.”
