    Days after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Boston, Massachusetts, was wrong to prohibit a group from flying a Christian flag at city hall, The Satanic Temple wants to fly a flag over the downtown building. The Salem-based group wrote on Twitter that it has filed a request with Boston’s property management department to raise and lower a flag to observe “Satanic Appreciation Week” from July 23–29. “The Satanic Temple replies to the Supreme Court ruling that found Boston violated First Amendment rights by refusing to fly Christian flag at City Hall Plaza,” the organization wrote, with a screenshot of...

    The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that a program of the city of Boston that allows outside groups to fly flags at city hall must permit the flying of flag with a cross that a camp referred to as a "Christian flag." The question before the court was whether flying the flag as part of a government program was considered government speech if the flag belonged to a private organization, in this case, Camp Constitution. The Supreme Court ruled that it is not. "We conclude that, on balance, Boston did not make the raising and flying of private groups’ flags a...

    The Supreme Court unanimously ruled today that the city of Boston, Massachusetts wrongly banned Christian flags from a community flag program. Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver presented oral argument in January to the U.S. Supreme Court in Shurtleff v. City of Boston, arguing that the City of Boston violated the Constitution by censoring a Christian flag in a public forum open to “all applicants” merely because the application referred to it as a “Christian flag.” There are three flagpoles outside City Hall that fly the U.S., Massachusetts and Boston flags, plus a fourth flag on Congress Street, which...

    The Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Monday that the city of Boston violated the Constitution when it refused to let a local organization fly a Christian flag in front of city hall. While the case had religious overtones, the decision was fundamentally about free speech rights. The court said the city created a public forum, open to call comers, when it allowed organizations to use a flagpole in front of City Hall for commemorative events. Denying the same treatment for the Christian flag was a violation of free expression, the court said. The ruling was a victory for a group...

    The Nation justice correspondent Elie Mystal said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that the Christian right wants religious freedom to be bigoted against the LGBTQ community. The panel was discussing the Supreme Court, who seems inclined to rule for a Washington state high school football coach who lost his job after he refused to stop praying on the field after games.

    Alarge number of artifacts belonging to the second and third centuries A.D. were unearthed in an underground city featuring places of worship, silos, water wells and passages with corridors in southeastern Mardin province’s Midyat district. Midyat, which is almost an open-air museum with its history and culture, offers a magical atmosphere to its visitors with stone houses, inns, mosques, churches and monasteries that are thousands of years old. In the district, a cave was found within the scope of a project started two years ago for cleaning and conservation of the historical streets and houses. After it was determined that...
  • Is Lent Becoming More Popular Among Evangelicals?

    For the first 23 years of his life, Pastor Douglas Ponder had never heard of the word “Lent” because he was raised in a Southern Baptist household. Now, over a decade later, the 38-year-old pastor can’t get enough of the Lenten season. Lent is an annual season of fasting that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends the day before Easter Sunday. This is a period of 40 days plus Sundays, as Sunday is a day of rest and is not considered part of the observance. Although more commonly practiced among Catholic and mainline Protestant denominations, some Evangelical and non denominational...

    Few things are more surprising to a church lady like myself than to find better sense about sex and gender coming from a foul-mouthed cable talk show than from our current crop of evangelical thought leaders. But such is the state of the world these days—the crude pagan speaks plain wisdom while the churchmen discourse in the inscrutable, hedging language of feminist accommodation. Bill Maher’s March 25 monologue on women’s reaction to Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky offered the kind of politically incorrect truth that certain progressive Christian ladies and the pastors who pander to them have been trying to paint...

    I do not write this article to throw stones. I write it to save lives. That’s why I make this heartfelt (and anguished) plea: If you are a pastor or ministry leader and you believe that, according to the Bible, you have the liberty to drink alcohol (without drunkenness), please don’t turn that liberty into a public boast, as in, “Look at how free I am!” You can enjoy that freedom before God, with moderation and discipline. But please don’t bash those who practice total abstinence. And please don’t use your liberty as a club against legalism. Or as a...

    When it comes to our president or many other prominent world leaders, we have a pretty good idea of who they are and what makes them tick. But do we really know who Vladimir Putin is? Do we know what drives and motivates him? More specifically, do we know for sure why he has invaded Ukraine?We have been told that he wants to restore the glory of the former Soviet Union. This will be his legacy.We have been told that he is simply threatened by the expansion of NATO, dreading the possibility of nuclear weapons stationed next to the Russian...

    A professor was locked out of his classes and email account without warning in apparent retaliation for criticizing his Christian university’s use of “diversity” and “equity” as criteria for selecting its new president, he and several witnesses told The Federalist. The Rev. Dr. Greg Schulz was immediately and indefinitely suspended from his classes at Concordia University Wisconsin and banned from campus by interim college President William Cario on Feb. 18, a Friday. That was not formally conveyed to Schulz, however, until his lawyer obtained the suspension letter on Feb. 22, Schulz’s Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty attorney Dan Lennington...

    From Greg Burt, CFCSacramento, Calif. -- A Christian physician is suing the state of California in federal court lover a recently signed law that forces doctors to facilitate a terminally ill person’s desire to kill themselves. The lawsuit, filed last week by Alliance Defending Freedom and the Life Legal Defense Foundation, accuses the state of violating the First Amendment free speech and religious liberty rights of physicians by compelling them “to choose between abandoning their livelihoods or obeying government commands that violate their religious conscience and compel them to speak and act in ways that contravene their religious faith.” “California’s...
