    The Decline Of Christianity Means The End Of Neutral SpacesThe fading of Christianity in the West doesn’t mean the triumph of secular liberalism but the return of an oppressive paganism.President’s Biden’s decision to elevate Transgender Day of Visibility on Easter, the holiest day of the Christian calendar, was no accident. Yes, we all know (now) that it falls on March 31 every year, while the date of Easter obviously varies. But the idea that the White House’s promotion of the transgender agenda on Easter was a mere coincidence, as Biden’s press secretary insisted on Monday, strains credulity. We all know...

    A Guide to Mexican Anti-Catholicism in the 1800s - Part 1“In the world you shall have distress: but have confidence, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).A History of Bloodshed and RevolutionOften untaught to children today, Catholics were extremely persecuted in Mexico during the early 1900s because of the rise of the atheistic government in Mexico, which was seeking to secularize the country and limit the power of the Catholic Church.History books cite September 16, 1810 as the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence from Spain.[1] Credited for initiating this revolution is Don Miguel Hidalgo, a Catholic priest. Sadly,...
  • Freedom Is At The Heart Of Religion But People Of Faith Must Be Strong In Defending Faith From Secular Attack

    In Australia, the most outspoken critic of the false imprisonment of Cardinal George Pell (https://freedom-demokrasi-and-civilised-humanity.com/2021/10/05/australia-is-not-a-free-country/) was the conservative columnist and television host Andrew Bolt. Bolt is an atheist. I believe that, if all the Christians, who knew that what was done to Pell was wrong, had spoken up as Bolt did, then the cowardly bullies of the Socialist Left government, whose politicized police force attacked Pell, would have backed down. But with a few exceptions (Fathers Kevin Donnelly and Frank Brennan and Bishop Anthony Fisher) the churches and clergy were spectacularly silent. Such attacks will continue in places like Australia...

    Australia's 2021 Census reveals that the percentage of people identifying as Christian has dipped below 50% for the first time, a drop of 17 percentage points over the last 10 years. At the same time, the number of people who describe themselves as "non-religious" has risen.The diversity in the religions Australians identified is increasing, "reflecting continuing changes in our social attitudes and belief systems," the Australian Bureau of Statistics said in a statement.While Christianity remains the most common religion in the Oceania country, with 43.9% identifying as Christian, it's down from 52.1% in 2016 and 61.1% in 2011.The Sydney Morning...

    ROME — As “soft totalitarianism” coincides with an erosion of civil liberties, and a “woke”-fueled “cancel culture” leads many religious people and social conservatives to self-censor, bestselling author Rod Dreher, offers his own insights and solutions, culled from the experiences of those who suffered under communism in the Soviet bloc. In his acclaimed book Live Not By Lies — A Manual For Christian Dissidents, published in September 2020, he notes how these citizens recognized the seeds of tyranny in the West long ago, and have been trying to warn Westerners ever since...

    The latest survey of the American Worldview Inventory from Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Research Center found 43 percent of millennials born between 1984 and 2002 said they “don’t know, care, or believe that God exists.” Only 57 percent said they were Christian. Researchers found that belief declined between generations. Eighty-three percent of those in the Silent Generation (born 1927-1945), 79 percent of baby boomers (born 1946-1964), and 70 percent of Generation Xers (born 1965-1983) identified as Christian. Thirty-one percent, 28 percent, and 27 percent respectively said they “don’t know, care, or believe that God exists.” Those who believed “you treat...

    Let's pray that fashion's pope falls out of favor and a real one can come inWashington -- It is Christmastime. The citizenry goes out to churches and, if they are lucky, public places to be inspired by Nativity scenes. I spent Saturday in the countryside of northern Virginia and saw Nativity scenes not only in front of churches and public places but also in front of private homes -- many, many private homes. There were almost as many Nativity scenes visible in front of private homes in towns such as Strasburg and Winchester as there were Trump signs, Trump flags...

    Secular Democrats of America ^ | Representatives Jamie Raskin and Jared Huffman
    We urge you to lead our nation on a path that revives the Founders’ vision of religious freedom in our government and promotes a unifying patriotic pluralism—not dogmatic religious chauvinism—in American society. We believe that this is a moment not only to enact policies to advance constitutional secularism but to position the Democratic Party to take back the mantle of religious freedom and pluralism from the Republican Party. ... We urge you not to underestimate the institutional strength of what we refer to (interchangeably)in this document as the “Christian nationalist movement” or the “religious right.” This movement is extraordinarily well-funded...

    So how do we explain this link between education policy and religious belief given that academic attainment itself isn’t a factor? It’s quite simple, really. Children learn more at school than reading, writing, and arithmetic. They imbibe a whole set of implied assumptions about what’s important in life. By excluding religious instruction from public schools, the government-run education system tacitly teaches students that religious commitments are not a first-order priority in life. Faith in God becomes a sort of optional weekend hobby akin to playing tennis or video games. Christ and Moses are treated by teachers and administrators like weapons...

    Third, the biographies of at least some of today’s race-minded trailblazers suggest a connection between fatherlessness and identity politics. The author of the bestseller White Fragility was a child of divorce at age two. The author of the bestseller So You Want to Talk About Race reports that her father left the family and broke off contact, also when she was two. The author of another bestseller, Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race, was raised by a single mother. The author of another hot race book, The Anti-Racist: How to Start the Conversation About Race and...

    American Thinker ^ | E. M. Cadwaladr
    What are we to expect from a religion based on nothing better than the ambitions and the desires of self-indulgent human beings? If there is no greater behavioral standard than our own raw wants, what can we expect as a result? Sooner or later, that attractive veneer of secular idealism gets rubbed off by the inescapably brutal logic of the underlying creed: "Why does any life matter — especially when that life is in my way? Why should I love my neighbor as myself? Who is there that I cannot replace?" The answers to these questions can't be found inside...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10-26-20 | Bobby Jindal
    Conservatives have been calling for a spiritual revival, another Great Awakening, to undo the cultural stagnation infecting the nation. Evangelicals debate whether they should engage in the political arena to address society’s ills. They agree on the need for increased religious fervor to solve the nation’s problems. They see in history a recurring Old Testament theme: that people persist in erroneous ways until they desperately turn to God, repent and flourish, only to repeat the cycle. Conservatives see these revivals occurring when things seem darkest and when believers were most prone to despair. Conservatives see signs of America’s decay in...

    Secularism Lives Loudly Within Biden The upcoming Supreme Court fight will expose it. With Sonia Sotomayor on her nomination in 2009 Joe Biden has said that he will only appoint “living” constitutionalists to the courts. Unless they find unstated rights in the Constitution, he won’t name them: “I would look to judges, potential nominees, they would have to acknowledge the fact that there are unenumerated rights that are nonetheless constitutional rights; they’re not mentioned by name in the Constitution.”In other words, his ideal judge is a left-wing activist willing to legislate from the bench according to whatever the liberal zeitgeist...
