  • Judge deals blow to couple fighting to keep little white cross in The Villages (Florida)

    A judge has dealt a blow to a couple fighting to keep a little white cross on display at their home in The Villages. Judge Michelle Morley has ruled in favor of Community Development District 8 in its protracted legal battle with Wayne and Bonnie Anderson of the Village of Tamarind Grove. She dismissed their most-recent counter complaint. The Andersons had claimed that their display of the little white cross should be protected under the Florida Religious Freedom Restoration Act. However, CDD 8 has long held that the cross is considered a “lawn ornament” and therefore forbidden under deed compliance...

    Pope Francis, a leading advocate of Doormat Christianity, is at it again. Although it is traditional for papal podiums to depict the crucifix, during his recent visit to the island of Malta, Pope Francis ditched the cross lest it offend Muslim migrants. As the archdiocese of Malta openly admitted, “The podium will not be adorned with a crucifix, given that the majority of migrants are Muslim.” Instead, the podium backdrop used by Francis consisted of recycled plastic bottles with red blobs meant to highlight the two primary reasons Francis was visiting Malta — to defend migrants and the environment. “When...

    One day two women who lost contact 15 years earlier met on social media. This reunion would forever change the life of a teenage girl. One woman was a missionary, the other a single mother raising a teen daughter. The mother of the teen invited her long lost friend to come and visit. Knowing she had a few weeks before she would embark upon another missionary journey, the woman accepted friend's offer.Indianapolis is a long way from San Diego, but the trip would be good for both women to visit and go over old times. When the missionary arrived, she...

    Saturday, MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross and her guest Elie Mystal did not pull any punches when expressing their frustrations with Friday’s acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse by a Kenosha, WI jury. Mystal criticized the verdict as a “miscarriage of justice” and a product of the “white justice system.” However, later in the segment, Cross took aim at Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Paul Gosar (R-AZ) for suggestions Rittenhouse could be a congressional intern. The MSNBC “Cross Connection” host referred to Rittenhouse as a “little murderous white supremacist” in her critique.

He then continued jumping to several different rooftops.Officers from the Los Angeles Police department responded to the scene via air and ground. As officers approached, at one point, the man straddled what appeared to be a utility line and used it to pull himself to the lip of another rooftop....

    Loudoun County Public Schools in Virginia plans to appeal a judge’s order to reinstate physical education teacher Byron Tanner Cross, who was suspended days after telling the school board he would not refer to transgender students by their preferred pronouns because of his religious beliefs. In a statement, LCPS said it “respectfully disagrees with the Circuit Court’s decision to issue the injunction, and it is appealing this ruling to the Supreme Court of Virginia.” “Many students and parents at Leesburg Elementary have expressed fear, hurt and disappointment about coming to school,” the statement said. LCPS said while it “respects the...

    On September 9, 2001 terrorists flew planes into the twin towers of the World Trade Center, brought both towers to the ground, killed 2,977 people, and caused over 25,000 injuries, with $10 billion in infrastructure damage. 343 firefighters were killed, and 72 police officers. In the midst of all that desperation and despair the workers found a Cross amidst the wreckage. I believe the Cross was put there by the Sovereign God as a symbol demonstrating that Hope shines in the midst of great sorrow. See pic here: We have all seen pictures of the Cross draped with Jesus'...

    Every human has been hot wired with a special faith component to our souls, even agnostics and atheists have faith in what they believe. Another way to explain this would be to say we have all been created with an addiction gene. It's that ever yearning desire to find something that will make us feel like we belong, or comfortable in our own skin if you will.From the moment we become conscious of our self, we begin searching for that One Thing our soul craves. For each of us it could be a different point in life. Some find it...

    Sometimes I worry that by questioning the way God took certain actions, the way he did according to scripture .. I worry that I may be on the thin line between wanting answers to these questions or actual blasphemy!? One of my most nagging questions and one that seems to have no rational (or scriptural) explanation is "why did Jesus have to be tortured and slaughtered like he was?" Why the carrying and dragging of the heavy beams of the cross? That effort was so cruel that he fell many times on the way to where he would be impaled!...

    France: Vandals cut down monumental and iconic iron cross, “symbol of the entire Languedoc region” MAY 16, 2020 2:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER This attack could have perpetrated by militant atheists, angry ex-Catholics, any number of people. But such people have been in France for years, and there have not been incidents of this kind. However, France has seen a large influx of Muslim migrants in recent years, many of whom believe that it is an insult to Allah to say that Jesus is the Son of God (cf. Qur’an 19:35), and that Jesus died on the cross (which the...

Hebrews 10:39, "But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved." Hebrews 11:3, "By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not not made out of what was visible." The verse is both comprehensive and scientific, viewing space ("the heaven") and matter ("the earth") as functioning in a framework of time ("In the beginning"). This space...

    The Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday a Pennsylvania county's 70-year-old seal and flag is allowed to remain after being targeted by the Freedom From Religion Foundation . The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia ruled 3-0 Thursday that after the Supreme Court upheld the Bladensburg "Peace Cross" war memorial in June as a historic monument, the Lehigh County can maintain its seal as a symbol that “has become part of the community.” The seal and flag feature grain silos, the Liberty Bell, a heart, among other items. But it was the cross at the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A World War I memorial in the shape of a 40-foot-tall cross can continue to stand on public land in Maryland, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday. The justices, in ruling 7-2 in favor of the cross’ backers, concluded that the nearly 100-year-old memorial’s presence on a grassy highway median doesn’t violate the First Amendment’s establishment clause, which prohibits the government from favoring one religion over others. The case had been closely watched because it involves the place of religious symbols in public life. Defenders of the cross in Bladensburg had argued that a ruling against them could...
