    A guest on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” stated that conservative Christians like Roy Moore aren’t actually Christian.WATCH:(video at link)After host Joy Reid referred to Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore as the “darling of the Christian right,” guest Rev. William Barber said that right-wing Christians weren’t real Christians. Reid asked, “Judge Roy Moore, it is interesting. He is a darling of the Christian right. But reading this article this week about how he once stood steadfast against removing segregation and poll taxes from the Alabama Constitution and yet he fits in fine. Why is that?”Barber answered, “I just can’t call it ‘Christian right.’...

    SAN FRANCISCO, California, October 11, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Four U.S. Catholic bishops and another from New Zealand have offered their names in support of Jesuit Father James Martin’s “project of outreach to LGBT Catholics.” According to Father Martin’s book publisher, Church hierarchy is continuing to endorse his message in light of “backlash from some unofficial far-right Catholic groups leading to the cancellation of three scheduled lectures.” “Many Catholic leaders have stepped forward to offer forceful new support for Father Martin and his message of ‘respect, compassion, and sensitivity,’” a HarperOne news release said. The “additional church leaders (who) have also...

    United Methodist Church bishop Dr. Karen Oliveto is not only a lesbian, she also believes (and publicly teaches) that Jesus was a bigot filled with prejudices. She does say that Jesus grew and changed, and that's her point. Bishop Oliveto admonishes, "If Jesus can change, if he can give up his bigotries and prejudices, if he can realize that he had made his life too small, and if, in this realization, he grew closer to others and closer to God, than so can we."

    Attempting to create the impression that faithful Christians whose beliefs are at odds with newly sanctified cultural mores are incapable of doing their job. "Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?" Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) asked Notre Dame Law School professor Amy Coney Barrett, a nominee for a federal appeals court, yesterday. Since Durbin inquired in the form of a question, we can only assume that Barrett's answer was pertinent to the confirmation. That is problematic considering the Constitution explicitly states that no religion—not even a belief in orthodox liberalism—should be a prerequisite for holding a federal office. At least...

    No sooner had the Nashville Statement on biblical sexuality been issued then we began to hear a common refrain from the left. “This is another sign that the religious right is dying! This statement represents the last gasp of the old, antiquated guard! It’s time to say good bye and good riddance! Let’s welcome the new thing the Spirit is doing!”In reality, it is the religious left that is dying, while those who uphold Scripture are seeing blessing and increase around the globe. Before I back up this statement, here’s what some “progressive” Christian leaders are saying.Writing for the Huffington...

    The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops slammed as "reprehensible" President Trump's decision to "wind down" the program that protects immigrants brought to the country illegally as children, charging that the uncertainty as Congress is left to forge a consensus "causes unnecessary fear for DACA youth and their families." Some 800,000 beneficiaries are covered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "While new applications for work permits will not be accepted, all existing work permits will be honored until their date of expiration up to two full years from today," President Trump said in a statement issued by the White...

    The number of Anglicans in Britain has collapsed by 50 per cent in under two decades, according to figures released today. The latest British Social Attitudes survey’s data on religion show that the number of people in Britain who describe themselves as having no religion at all is also at its highest ever level. More than half, 53 per cent, of the British public now describe themselves as having ‘no religion’. This is up from 48 per cent in 2015. Figures released earlier from the same survey showed that that religious people are becoming more socially liberal on issues like...

    A high-profile Vatican adviser responded to a recent Evangelical statement affirming marriage between “one man and one woman” with his own statement affirming "LGBT people."   Rev. James Martin, a Catholic priest, author, and adviser to the Vatican on communications, tweeted a seven-point list of pro-homosexual affirmations in response to the Evangelical’s “Nashville Statement” that defended marriage between a man and woman. Martin’s series of tweets were picked up by The Washington Post and published as a “counter-list” in an August 30 article titled “Seven simple ways to respond to the Nashville Statement on sexuality.” In his list affirming “LGBT people,”...

    August 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — One of the authors of a widely-criticized essay that accused conservative Catholics and Evangelicals in the U.S. of instigating an “ecumenism of hate” is doubling down on his claims. Speaking with The Tablet earlier this week, Marcelo Figueroa said he was happy to see the “necessary” debate that resulted from an article he and papal confidant Fr. Antonio Spadaro S.J. published July 13 in La Civiltŕ Cattolica, a Jesuit-run journal overseen by the Vatican. In their essay, Figueroa and Spadaro decried what they called the “problematic fusion between … faith and politics” found in America....

    Hillary Clinton’s pastor has acknowledged he plagiarized part of the prayer commentary he sent her the day after she lost the presidential election, a devotional that is at the heart of a book he published Tuesday. The Rev. Bill Shillady said in a statement he was “stunned” to learn that his devotional, “Sunday is Coming,” was so similar to an earlier blog post by the Rev. Matt Deuel of Mission Point Community Church in Warsaw, Indiana. Shillady said he has apologized to Deuel and will credit the Indiana pastor in future editions of the book, titled “Strong for a Moment...

    In some people’s view everyone can be forgiven for their sins other than “racist” “misogynist” President Donald Trump Somewhat like Islamic terrorism, Hillary Clinton is declaring herself her own religion. In her case reinventing herself as an ordained Methodist minister, coming in to the pulpit with an already at the ready schism. Husband Bill and daughter Chelsea will no doubt be shouting “Amen” on Sundays when she takes to the pulpit, with Bill only nodding off occasionally when her homilies run overly long.
  • Hillary Clinton's pastor plagiarized portion of new book

    Hillary Clinton's longtime pastor plagiarized the writings of another minister in a new book scheduled to be released on Tuesday. "Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton," is based on emails the Rev. Bill Shillady, a United Methodist minister, wrote to Clinton from April 2015 through December of last year. Shillady and Clinton, a lifelong Methodist, formed a spiritual bond after meeting in New York in 2002. The pastor co-officiated at Chelsea Clinton's wedding in 2010, presided over Clinton's mother's memorial service and blessed her grandchildren. Clinton appears on the cover of "Strong for...

    Hillary Clinton is back in the news, but for reasons that are confounding her supporters and her detractors alike. She is reportedly weighing a decision to become a Methodist lay preacher. There are good reasons why her fans and foes are befuddled: it is out of character for almost any Democrat these days to evince a serious interest in Christianity. Quite simply, it will not be easy for her to make the jump to preacher status given all the hostility to traditional Christian moral values that she and her Party have expressed for decades. “God talk” has never come easily...

    Hillary Clinton's pastor compared her defeat to President Trump in the 2016 election to Jesus Christ’s death. “You, our nation, our world, is experiencing a black Friday," Rev. Bill Shillady wrote to Clinton one day after her loss. "Our hope is that Sunday is coming. But it might well be hell for a while." He also said “life is filled with a lot of Fridays” and Good Friday “represented the day that everything fell apart.” “Today, you are experience a Friday. Your Friday is what happened in the last few weeks and last night in the tragic loss. But Sunday...

    Hillary Clinton wants to be a preacher, and a Duke Divinity School alum who served as her spiritual adviser during the 2016 presidential campaign says Clinton would be powerful in the pulpit. “I think she would be a terrific preacher,” said the Rev. Bill Shillady, who has been a friend and a pastor to the Clinton family for 15 years. “She knows her Bible, and she loves people and she loves God.” (snip) Shillady said he and Clinton were together for a photo shoot for the book’s release when she said, almost offhandedly, “‘Bill, I think I’d like to do...

    So what do you do if you are an abortion advocate who lost two presidential elections in a row? For Hillary Clinton it is considering becoming a Methodist pastor. The news that Clinton would consider becoming a pastor in the United Methodist Church is not surprising given that the Methodist Church supported abortion for years until recently and still has a large contingent of pastors and other church leaders who strongly support abortion. Here’s more: According to The Atlantic, Clinton told her longtime pastor Bill Shillady, at a recent photo shoot for his new book, that she wants to preach...
