  • A ‘missionary to Christian nationalists,’ Phoenix pastor urges conversion, not confrontation

    (RNS) — Phoenix pastor Caleb Campbell has a theory about the growing number of Americans who are labeled as Christian nationalists. Most would rather go to Cracker Barrel than storm the Capitol. Many see themselves as good Christians who love their country. But somewhere along the way, they began to think being a good American and being a Christian were one and the same. “Their whole life has been the intermingling of their American civil religion and their Christian religion,” said Campbell, pastor of Desert Springs Bible Church and a self-described missionary to Christian nationalists. To help his fellow Christians...

    The Christian Post ^ | October 29, 2022 | Ryan Foley
    As media attention on "Christian nationalism" looms large in American politics heading into the 2022 midterms, Christian scholars this week debated the definition of the term and whether the increased media focus is an attempt to intimidate Christians from sharing their values in the public square. The Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University held a debate Thursday titled "Is Christian Nationalism a Threat to America?" Luige DelPuerto, the editor of Colorado Politics in The Denver Gazette, moderated a discussion between Centennial Institute Director Jeff Hunt, whose organization hosts a prominent annual conservative summit, and Scott Wasserman, the president of the...

    It's now almost six months to the day since Russia invaded Ukraine. According to the United Nations, the conflict has displaced at least 12 million Ukrainians while huge parts of the east and the south of the country lie devastated. But according to frontline volunteer, Seva, he along with many of his countrymen and women remain committed to the war - even if it means paying the ultimate cost. Speaking as part of a special edition of Sky News' Ukraine War Diaries podcast, to mark six months since the beginning of the war, Seva explains. "Everyone is tired of war,...
  • I once hated America, but now I can’t wait to be an American

    Washington Examiner ^ | August 14, 2022 | Amby Gabriel Nadales
    A recent Gallup survey shows only 38% of adults are “extremely proud” to be an American. This record-low percentage is the latest point in a downward trend that began in 2015. National pride is now 20 percentage points lower than it was a decade ago. Now, I’m not yet an American citizen, so I can’t say I’m proud to be one. But having lived in this country for more than 20 years, and despite the seemingly never-ending bickering portrayed in the legacy media, I can’t wait to be an American. It hasn’t always been this way. In fact, there was...

He also spent his last season protesting the country that enabled him to attain that great wealth (beginning on August 26, 2016 during the last pre-season game, and ending January 1, 2017, his team’s final game for the season). He is also similar to another famous America hater whose mother was a white atheist from Kansas, as...
  • Pennsylvania is one of the ‘least patriotic’ states in America: study

    What, are there a bunch of redcoats in the Keystone State or something? Pennsylvania is apparently one of the least patriotic states in the country, according to this one study. Financial site WalletHub decided to find out what makes a patriot as the Fourth of July holiday nears. In order to do so, they first took a look at all 50 states across two key dimensions: “Military Engagement” and “Civic Engagement.” From there they proceeded to grade each on sub-metrics such as “Veterans per 1,000 Civilian Adults” and “Share of Adults Who Voted in 2020 Presidential Election,” peppering in data...

    Companies said they were recalling 'Freedom Series' items labeled 'Made in USA' and feature guns and eagles Harris Teeter and Kroger are facing backlash for a decision to remove patriotic products after people complained. A customer took to Twitter Monday to complain about Harris Teeter selling some pro-America items — that read "Give me liberty or give me death" and "America, love it or leave it" — saying they were insensitive as mass shooting incidents happen around the country. "Why are you allowing this type of item to be sold at your grocery store in Huntersville NC? Clearly in light...

    On a windy military island off Helsinki, people from all walks of life are spending their weekend doing military training, as volunteer numbers soar and Finland readies to join Nato to protect itself from Russia. Finland's defence forces only have around 13,000 employed personnel but the country of 5.5 million boasts an impressive 900,000 reservists with a wartime strength of 280,000 troops. Finland shares a 1,300km border with Russia. For many of the participants attending this weekend's training course on Santahamina Island, Moscow's Feb 24 invasion of another neighbour, Ukraine, was the deciding factor that got them to sign up....

    "I applaud her for that, and that's a fantastic achievement," the Sex Pistols frontman added of the upcoming Platinum JubileeJohn Lydon has said in a new interview that, ahead of the Platinum Jubilee, he is “actually really, really proud of the Queen for surviving and doing so well”. The Sex Pistols frontman was speaking ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which will be celebrated in the UK from June 2-5 to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne. To mark the occasion, Lydon’s former band are reissuing their classic anti-monarchy single ‘God Save The Queen’. Speaking to Piers...
  • Honoring Veterans With Educational Freedom

    05/10/2022 4:50:34 AM PDT · by Kaslin ^ | May 10, 2022 | Vicki Alger
    Americans want to honor the veterans and service members who sacrifice so much to defend our freedom. That’s why we have holidays like Memorial Day. Yet members of our military deserve more than speeches and parades. They deserve parental choice in education. “[W]hile our service members fight for our freedoms abroad, too many military families are denied education freedom at home,” according to former deputy U.S. Secretary of Education Mitchell Zais. And he should know: Zais served in the U.S. Army for 31 years and retired as a brigadier general. The lack of parental choice in education hits military families...

    When feminity is defined by the right to destroy your own child, revolt is morally required. When a national anthem is a hollow shell nobody believes, then it should be rewritten not parrotted. When does the cancer of woke government get so bad that patriotism isn't an option? In the Australia I was born in, the answer is now.

    I pray everyone had a truly blessed Resurrection weekend; that is what this past weekend was about. It was about one person, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, laying down His life for us to have eternal life. Last week I was honored to narrate Haydn's string quartet, The Last Seven Words of Christ on the Cross. It was humbling to read and explain the meaning of Christ's final words spoken from the cross. As well, this weekend allowed me to reflect back on some other words, four of which are the title of this missive. They are words that...
  • Race and American Exceptionalism

    This past Thursday evening at the University of Buffalo (UB) I was invited by the Young America's Foundation Chapter at UB to deliver a presentation on “Race and American Exceptionalism.” Before I even arrived, the nature of my visit was made controversial when students on the campus ripped down flyers and even conducted a campus walking protest. Therefore, I knew this would be quite the hostile environment. The question I have is, why? Why is it controversial for a 61-year-old black man who was born in a blacks only hospital in the South to discuss said topic? After all, I...

    How Will I Teach My Grandchildren What Is Right When I Was Wrong So Often? By Cory Franklin “Everything I was sure, or was taught to be sure, was impossible has happened” — Winston Churchill Looking back now, I ask myself: How could I have been so wrong about so many things? I was wrong about: Patriotism and love for your country, no matter what its faults. In grade school, I learned the famous quotation, “My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.” That was the appropriate quote, not the...
  • A Quinnipiac poll reveals that most Democrats are delusional and unpatriotic

    American Thinker ^ | 03/14/2022 | Owen JP Murphy
    A Quinnipiac poll published on March 7, 2022, gave a remarkable insight into the state of the country in terms of its political divisions. It has long been suspected that Democrats care more about their party than the country, and the recent polls provide strong evidence supporting that opinion. The poll indicates that most Democrats will never criticize a Democrat president despite a disastrous job performance. But more troubling is what the Quinnipiac poll revealed: a majority of Democrats do not love this country enough to stay and defend her in case of war. Presidential Job Approval: Given the disastrous...
