    Townhall ^ | 01/15/2023 | Scott Hogenson
    I grew up in Minnesota when it was a very nice, normal place; a time when the unofficial state motto was “30 Below Keeps The Riff-Raff Out,” and the meanest thing about it was that lady who scowled at Mary Tyler Moore tossing her hat into the air on TV.But in a couple years, Christians will not be allowed to work as public school teachers. Neither will Muslims or Jews. The reason for this religious bigotry is new teacher licensing rules that will require teachers to personally affirm transgender ideology. Biology, genetics, endocrinology, physiology and anatomy have shown that, with...

    Don’t allow the left to wield DEI unopposed — conservative students should begin filing complaints for speech that attacks their identity categories’ A professor recently began to advance his idea on how to combat onerous progressive ideologies on campus, encouraging students to report professors who bash Christians, white people and conservatives to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Title IX offices for investigation. Conservative students should file complaints for speech that attacks their identity – especially when it comes from a professor, said Adam Ellwanger, a professor of English at the University of Houston-Downtown, in a recent telephone interview with The...

    Protestant leader hails Jiang Zemin as a 'great Marxist we all love and miss' China’s communist regime has instructed all Protestant Christians belonging to the state-controlled body, Three-Self Church, to pay tributes to Jiang Zemin, ex-president and former general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The instructions to remember Jiang was passed to national leaders of the Three-Self Church who gathered for a Memorial Conference in Shanghai in the first week of December, Bitter Winter reported. They were told all members of the Three-Self Church across China should do the same. Jiang (1926-2022) was general secretary of the CCP...

    New battle lines are being drawn in the US by a right-wing Christian movement set on what it sees as its divine mission - to spread its beliefs and messages using political power. So what is Christian nationalism and why is it flourishing now?/... ...God and country is one of the oldest and most influential currents in US politics. It ebbs and flows throughout American history. It's at high tide now because conservative Christians feel they're on the losing end of demographic and cultural changes. .... ...What's different now about such Christian political activism is that the country is no...
  • Christians: The 'Respect for Marriage Act' will be used against you. This is not hype or exaggeration. It is a simple, legal truth.

    This is not hype or exaggeration. It is a simple, legal truth.With the signing of the “Respect for Marriage Act” into law, if you do not accept or affirm same-sex “marriage,” you are now in the same category as a racist. And you can be assured that this will be used as a weapon against you in the days to come.How can I make such statements?Let me remind you of the exact language of the bill, beginning with the opening words: “This act provides statutory authority for same-sex and interracial marriages.”I have already discussed the reasons why this language was...

    The Daily Signal ^ | December 8, 2022 | Tyler O'Neil
    A small Texas city near Austin is about to vote on a policy that may prevent Christian groups from sponsoring Christmas parades, according to the conservative group Texas Values. The policy, listed as Agenda Item #13 on the agenda for the Dec. 8, 2022, meeting of the city council in Taylor, Texas, stipulates what kind of groups can cosponsor events alongside the city. The guidelines require nonprofit organizations to allow people who identify as LGBT on their boards and in the document, the city reserves the right to reject sponsorships for a variety of reasons, including on the basis that...

    Did you know that, all throughout sub-Saharan Africa—in Nigeria, Mozambique, the Central African Republic, Mali, the Democratic Republic of Congo—Muslims have for many years been terrorizing and slaughtering Christians? Nor is there any hope on the horizon: problems that cannot be honestly addressed are doomed to persist in perpetuity.

    While cleaning one set of Byzantine mosaics in Hippos of the Decapolis, the archaeologists found more mosaics. An unknown bishop, a goldsmithing priest and an anxious couple have come to lightPeople of yore were deeply religious, it seems – including in Hippos (Sussita) of the Decapolis, a Greco-Roman city perched high above the Sea of Galilee. No less than seven churches have been found in the city from the early Christian era. Now, four inscriptions newly discovered in one of its ancient churches – the Martyrion of Theodoros, or “Burnt Church” – during the summer 2022 excavation season shed rare...
  • Should Christians Kill? Pacifism versus responsibility – who can rightly refer to Jesus and who is wrong?

    Christian Post ^ | 11/02/2022 | Elmar Nass
    The current war in Ukraine reignites the debate over whether Christians should be pacificists or if they have a responsibility to fight and therefore defend themselves. Christian pacifists consider fighting a betrayal of the message of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, which is deeply rooted in our social morality and remains the ultimate reference of Christian moral judgment. On the other hand, responsibility ethics dictate that the use of force is justified when used in self-defense. Pacifism versus responsibility – who can rightly refer to Jesus and who is wrong? This question falls short. Paradoxical as it may sound: We...

    Church leaders on Saturday condemned an attack on the Orthodox church in Beit Sahur, near Bethlehem, and called on the Palestinian Authority to bring the assailants to trial. During the attack, which took place on Friday night, dozens of Muslim men hurled stones at the church, injuring a number of people. The church is affiliated with the Jerusalem Patriarchate and managed by the congregation in Beit Sahur. In a statement, the church leaders said the attack came after a “quarrel between some young men.” “We condemn this attack and demand that the Palestinian Authority bring the attackers to trial as...

    In 2020, Mary Mohammadi was taken to a detention center near Iran’s capital Tehran. Officials told her that her hair was visible. In the basement of the all-female detention center, Mary was forced to strip. “If my hair is a problem, is it not a problem to force me to take off all my clothes? Is this Islamic?,” Mary told Firstpost in an exclusive conversation. The incident was part of the sexual violence that the regime has been using to suppress female protesters and activists, Mary said. “During protests, security personnel touch female demonstrators inappropriately. They want to make women...

    A Rubicon has been crossed in Australia. For the first time, someone has lost their job not because of something they said or did, but because of the church they belong to. Essendon AFL is an Australian rules football team. Based in Melbourne, it has a membership of over 80,000 and is a major player in what is a large and lucrative sport in Australia. This week it appointed a local businessman, Andrew Thorburn, as its chief executive. He lasted one day in the job and the story is best summed up by the Herald Sun headline, "Essendon's chief executive...
  • Christian votes must line up with Christian voices: Consistency demands that our vote agrees with our voice.

    According to James 1:8, A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Christians must never abdicate biblical responsibilities upon entering the voting booth. While we render to Caesar what is Caesar’s, we must first render to God what is His. God instituted religion and politics; therefore, he has Supreme Authority over both. The Christian who attempts to separate the influence of faith over politics, forgets that Caesar is subject to God as are we. "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)...
  • Syria - Islamist Militiamen in Tahrir al Sham Allow Christians to Publicly Celebrate Mass in the Province of Idlib

    09/13/2022 6:31:27 PM PDT · by marshmallow · 1 replies
    Idlib (Agenzia Fides) - Mass was celebrated in a church that had been closed for ten years. This happened in the province of Idlib, in an area still controlled by the anti-Assad Islamist militias. Permission to re-open the Christian place of worship and celebrate the Eucharistic liturgy in a serene and festive atmosphere was the same head of the jihadist faction that, in past years, had seized property and the houses of Christians as "spoils of war". This event is emblematic of the real situation experienced by the Christian communities in this region of Syria. On August 28, after a...

    All throughout last week, some five or six Coptic churches in Egypt have “caught fire”— ... the Church of Abu Seifein (named after Saint Mercurius of Caesarea, who is revered by the Copts). At least 41 Christians — 18 of whom were children — were either burned alive, killed by asphyxiation, or ... Considering that Muslims have torched or bombed hundreds of Coptic churches over the decades in Egypt — and often when churches are packed — it is, of course, difficult to resist that explanation. Moreover, this last week was the “anniversary” of when Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers torched 62...

    The Left tries to kill two birds with one stone. Politicians have found a way to kill two birds with one stone: ignore the endemic slaughter of Christians at the hands of Muslims, while over exaggerating the impact of climate change. How? By saying that climate change is the true engine that drives the persecution of Christians. On Pentecost Sunday, June 5, 2022, Muslims massacred some 50 Christians inside a Nigerian church (see here for several other examples of Muslims massacring Christians worshipping inside their Nigerian churches). Two days later, the president of Ireland, Michael Higgins, issued a statement on...

    There was an odd essay in Christianity Today extolling John Brown as a model for evangelical engagement. According to the author, Brown was a “fervent believer who models a profoundly radical social ethic without ever wavering from his firm commitment to biblical authority.” The author enthusiastically declared: “I dream that John Brown’s soul might march again.” And the author explained: In our time, white evangelicals seem to be in dire need of good examples of people who were transformed by their faith to rise above pedestrian racism — because, not in spite of, their unshakable commitment to the authority of...

    If you’re surprised that the most outspoken Christians on social media for “justice” are not rejoicing over the most important Supreme Court ruling in our lifetime — you shouldn’t be. If you’re surprised that many woke “Christians” are angry that the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade — you shouldn’t be. You shouldn’t be surprised many woke “Christians” support abortion. As a pro-life advocate and a critic of woke ideology within the Church — I’ve been warning about Woke Christians’ implicit support for abortion for many years. Three years ago, I said: “One of the biggest indictments against the social...
