  • Christian Teacher Banned in the UK for Standing up for Truth

    I can’t imagine how difficult it is to be a Christian in education these days, particularly in places like the UK that don’t have First-Amendment speech protections. It seems like Christian teachers can’t say much of anything without getting in trouble anymore, and one teacher in the UK is reaping the consequences of staying true to his religious convictions. In 2017, Cherwell School in Oxford fired Joshua Sutcliffe, a math teacher — or “maths” as they call it in the UK — for referring to two girls as, well, girls. An innocent statement of “well done, girls” to two female...

    Two Christian students at Michigan State University are suing a former professor, alleging that she forced them and hundreds of other students to pay a $99 membership fee to her own left-wing activist group as part of the course requirements.In a complaint (pdf) filed last week in a federal court in Grand Rapids, Michigan, second-year business students Nathan Barbieri and Nolan Randomski said they enrolled in a required business communication course taught by Amy Wisner this spring.Wisner, who described herself as “a single mom by choice, speaker, author, rebel professor, and social justice warrior” on a mission to “cancel the...

    In a First on FOX Business interview, Media Research Center President and founder Brent Bozell discussed the "astonishing" findings that the Biden administration is allegedly using taxpayer money to wage a covert war on conservative and Christian groups. "You're a terrorist, I'm a terrorist," Bozell told host Maria Bartiromo Thursday. "Anybody with the RNC is a terrorist. Anyone supporting or reading Breitbart, the Christian Broadcasting Network, for the love of God, the Heritage Foundation, the most prestigious conservative think tank in America, all have now been targeted as associated to one degree or another with terrorism." On "Mornings with Maria,"...

    Abortion activists have moved into the realm of trying to make killing unborn babies seem funny. Some are blatant about it, such as Princeton University senior Jenni Lawson. She named her musical comedy, “To All the Babies I’ve Killed Before: A Love/Hate Letter to Storytelling,” according to Campus Reform. The student performance took place April 21 and 22 on campus. The play “investigate[s] the challenges of being heard and cultivating self-empowerment as a queer, cognitively-disabled (ADHD) woman in artistic spaces that traditionally center archaic, western, patriarchal narratives grounded in firm structures of storytelling and comedy,” the program states. But throughout...

    (CP) The Church of Scotland has lost more than half of its members since the year 2000, with the average age of worship attendees being 62, according to a General Assembly report. The Assembly Trustees' report for the Church's General Assembly taking place in Edinburgh analyzed statistical information about the denomination. According to the report, the membership of the Church in 2021 was 283,600, which represented a 4.6% decline compared to 2020, and well below the 1.3 million reported in the 1950s. The report explained that the 2021 membership numbers represented 46.6% of what was reported in 2000, while the...

    Facebook has provoked a widespread backlash after the social media platform deleted Christian content and labeled it “hate speech.” The issue was highlighted by journalist Billy Hallowell, a former Blaze writer. Hallowell, a Christian, exercised his religious freedom by posting on Facebook: “Jesus died so you could live.” However, despite his post reflecting one of Christianity’s core beliefs, Hallowell’s post was deleted by Facebook and he was accused of spreading “hate speech” on the Big Tech platform. Hallowell shared about this on Twitter, backed up by screenshots, and a comment stating that the incident was “very, very bizarre.”

    Ancient Coptic Church Torched in Egypt. Yet another Coptic Christian church has been consumed by flames (images follow). On Mar. 29, 2023, a massive fire broke out in the Church of the Virgin, Archangel Michael, Abu Sefein and Saint Anba Karas in Assyut, Egypt. Sections of it were reportedly “ancient.” According to a statement from the diocese, “The fire occurred around 4 a.m. and completely consumed the church and its appurtenances, as it was built of wood, as well as the ancient church, which consists of walls and a wooden ceiling.” Fortunately, no lives were lost in the conflagration. According...

    While big studios may not flood the zone with faith-based content, Angel Studios and Wedgwood Circle may still have something to teach them. “Jesus Revolution” and “The Chosen” are not just Christian dramas but part of a revolution in faith entertainment. The former — a feel-good movie about hippies who returned to Christ during the 1970s, starring former “Cheers” and “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer — has grossed more than $52 million since its debut a few weeks ago, making it the most successful film released by studio heavyweight Lionsgate since 2019.But the instructive parable may be its predecessor. Since its...

    Many major companies are “going woke” by advancing controversial progressive political ideas through their products or company policies. Having a major company like Disney, Target or Walmart express support for the LGBT movement or other ideas is starting to become cliché, as are the backlashes to their decisions. However, it might be surprising to learn that some of these very companies were either founded by devout Christians or have a history of appealing to conservative Christian culture. Here's a list of five major companies that have recently gone woke that have a Christian past. They include major retail stores, a...

    Wesleyan University, a prominent and supposedly Christian school, plans to begin paying for students to abort their unborn babies this fall. Over the weekend, a university spokesperson confirmed the news in response to demands from the pro-abortion club Young Democratic Socialists of America, NBC Connecticut reports. Wesleyan University is a private Methodist Episcopal university in Middletown, Connecticut. Founded in 1831, it was named after Methodist founder and Christian evangelist John Wesley. However, the school has strayed from its Christian roots in recent years by hosting pro-abortion events that promote killing unborn babies in abortions. Starting in the fall, the university...

    Heavenly Father - thank you that I, David French, am so much more righteous than all the other white evangelicals in the world. It is such a deep privilege, every Lord's Day, to publicly proclaim in the pages of the New York Times how stupid and bigoted white evangelicals are - with one exception (me, David French). What a gift it is to be me. Yes, I thank you Lord! Thank you that I am not like those evil "Christians" who declined the COVID vaccine.

    Attacks on churches and Christian institutions on American soil are at an all-time high. The March 27, 2023 killings in Nashville — where a woman claiming to be a man (aka “transgender”) stormed a private Christian school and murdered three children and three adults — is just the spectacular tip of a growing but concealed iceberg. According to recent reports by the Family Research Council, “criminal acts against churches have been steadily on the rise for the past several years. ... there were more church attacks in the first quarter of this year than there were in the first quarters...

    Whether churchgoers believe that tithing — giving 10% of one’s income — is a biblical commandment varies depending on age and denomination, according to a recent study. Lifeway Research, an organization that examines ongoing church ministry trends, published a study on April 25 that found more than 3 in 4 American Protestant churchgoers (77%) view tithing as a biblical command that the faithful must abide by today. The study of 1,002 American Protestant churchgoers was conducted online from Sept. 19-29, 2022, using a national pre-recruited panel. The completed sample has a 95% confidence level and the sampling error does not...
  • Victory for Mayoral Candidate Who Was Sacked Over Christian Views [UK]

    A Christian mayoral candidate for a London borough has won a substantial pay-out after being sacked by her employer for expressing Christian beliefs on marriage as part of an election manifesto. Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, Maureen Martin was dismissed by her housing association employer, L&Q, in May 2022 for gross misconduct following three complaints for alleged ‘hate speech’. The settlement with Miss Martin takes into account loss of earnings as a result of the sacking, injury to feelings in relation to ‘discriminatory dismissal’ and ‘pretermination treatment’. The case is believed to be the first of its kind to...

    As the subject of deliverance and demons has come front and center in recent days, I wanted to state clearly what I do and do not believe, in keeping with the views I have held for decades. To help simplify the discussion, I’ll answer a series of common questions. (For those who don’t believe in the spiritual realm at all, this article will strike you as either exceedingly odd, exceedingly irrelevant, or exceedingly foolish. If so, I’d encourage to you check out C. S. Lewis’s little book, Screwtape Letters.)1. Can a Christian be demon possessed? Certainly not. A Christian (in...
