    Biden-Sanders’ ‘Unity Plan’ doesn’t mention God even once. LGBT mentioned 17 times Suffice it to say that protecting the religious rights of Americans is not a focus of this plan. August 14, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — The 110-page, Biden-Sanders “Unity Plan” was released last month, but I failed to review it until just this week. Some key word searches yielded some very interesting — and revealing — results. For example, God is never mentioned in the document. Not once. As for “religion,” that is found one time, specifically in the section dealing with private schools. It reads: “Prohibit the disbursement of...
  • If the Biden/Harris stays the way it has been over the last few days the Democrat POTUS convention will be a total bust.

    POTUS, Candidate, Democrat,Joe Biden and his chosen Democrat, VP Candidate choice, Kamala Harris have very little electric Jazz MoJo motion between the both of them. Both are amazingly boring, Biden cannot speak without looking like he is falling asleep and the ego driven Harris always looks ticked off when she speaks anything!!! Add to that they take no questions at all!!! I wonder how they will pull off their interviews next week. Methinks unless they come in to the convention with a 180 turnaround, that convention will be a total flop!!! What, say, you good folks?

    WORLD—A group of atheists, along with some agnostics, announced on Tuesday a new sociopolitical movement consistent with their worldview called No Lives Matter. According to sources, organizers for NLM have planned numerous rallies to protest other rallies claiming that lives matter. The organization’s mission statement defines the group as “people motivated by the belief that all human lives are equally meaningless.” “Since we are just random accidents of evolution, and our so-called moral truths are just biochemical reactions in our brain, no human lives, or any lives at all, actually matter,” said prominent atheist Richard Dawkins, speaking for NLM. “Anyone...

You pause and reflect upon the numerous varieties of raw materials used to make the hundreds of thousands of material objects found in those stores and in the world at large --- from paper clips to huge ocean going cruise ships and aircraft carriers and Boeing 747's. You pause and think about the almost unfathomable number of material objects humans have made from the raw materials (eg. steel, copper,...

    The Moscow Church does not want Stalin to be depicted in the new church of the Armed Forces. The disagreement was expressed by Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk. “I believe that the images of Stalin should definitely not be placed in a Russian Orthodox Church, because Stalin was a persecutor of the Church. the blood of millions, including new martyrs and confessors of the Russian Church, is on his conscience, “the Metropolitan told Rossiya 24 (VGTRK) TV channel. “The church is neither an exhibition hall, nor a panorama of the Battle, nor a place where military parades should be depicted,” he...

    A 78-year-old cross on public property in Florida targeted by atheist groups will remain standing after a victory in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. The court ruled Wednesday that the Bayview Cross in Pensacola, which was built ahead of World War II as a place for the community to gather, does not violate the Constitution. […] The federal appeals court ruled the cross is constitutional, noting it has become “embedded in the fabric of the Pensacola community” and that removing it could “strike many as aggressively hostile to religion.” Four individuals, represented by the American Humanist Association and the...

    Selling Jesus-themed candies on an Air Force base is just one example of religious freedom in the U.S. being “under constant attack,” according to a watchdog group. Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) founder and president Mikey Weinstein is furiously calling out the Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo., for offering such products at its shop. “Peterson Air Force Base, located deep in the intolerant, fundamentalist Christian enclave of Colorado Springs, Colorado, has consistently been one of the most horrendous military installation abusers of the Constitutional mandate to NOT establish Christianity (or any other faith or even ‘non-faith’) as...

    During the Democrat debate this past week, the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) ran an ad where Ron Reagan said he is a lifelong atheist and isn't afraid of burning in Hell. He's saying he objects to the over 84% of Americans who are religious injecting their beliefs into government policies. Essentially, he's calling for the institution of his faith-based belief system, atheism, as a national religion in direct contradiction to the First Amendment.

    “Listen. I gotta break it to you . . . I’m post-Christian. . . . I don’t believe it anymore. I don’t believe any of it.” These are the words former Christian minister Bart Campolo recalls speaking to his famous evangelist father, Tony Campolo, after leaving the faith of his youth. He explained that his journey to secular humanism was a 30-year process of passing through every stage of heresy. In other words, his theology “progressed” from conservative to liberal to entirely secular. He predicted that in 10 years, 30 percent to 40 percent of so-called progressive Christians will...

    The Supreme Court declined Monday to take up a legal dispute targeting the inscription of “In God We Trust” on coins and currency from the Department of Treasury. Michael Newdow, an activist who filed the case on behalf of a group of atheists, argued Congress's mandate to inscribe the nation’s motto on U.S. money was a violation of the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, which prohibits Congress from establishing a national religion.
