    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday criticized Senate Republicans, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) specifically, for blocking Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) request for unanimous consent on approving $2,000 stimulus checks for the American people, contending the Senate GOP possesses “an endless tolerance for other people’s sadness.” McConnell, Pelosi told reporters, is standing as an “obstruction” to providing direct relief to the American people following his move to block Democrat efforts for quick approval of raising individual stimulus checks from $600 to $2,000.
  • In Praise of a Tolerant Religion: Christianity

    As we have witnessed in recent times, some groups have lawlessly removed from American streets and public buildings any vestiges of our history as well as religious symbols in general, Christianity in particular. The perpetrators hide behind masks and hide behind terms such as "social justice” and “diversity." They claim to be champions of protecting people of different minor faiths. As a non-religious person, I have lived in Christian America all my life. I have never felt anything less than welcomed from the time I could first formulate coherent and lasting thoughts to this day. Growing PainsI have visited 46...

    We have been discussing the rising threats against Trump supporters, lawyers, and officials in recent weeks from Democratic members are calling for blacklists to the Lincoln Project leading a a national effort to harass and abuse any lawyers representing the Republican party or President Trump. Others are calling for banning those “complicit” from college campuses while still others are demanding a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” to “hold Trump and his enablers accountable for the crimes they have committed.” Now, Daily Beast editor-at-large Rick Wilson has added his own call for “humiliation,” “incarceration” and even ritualistic suicides for Trump supporters in...

    No, there isn’t any sign the Church has learned from the McCarrick case The feeling is that one person has been made to pay so others may just continue along their way. The McCarrick Report reveals a substantial degree of tolerance towards homosexual conduct by the clergy, which is punished only if minors are the persons abused. This report also ignores the fact that the McCarrick case is only the tip of the iceberg of a power system controlled by the gay lobby. Whether it is a “truth operation” as announced, or a “surreal operation of mystification” as immediately defined...

    King Charles II and the British passed the Conventicle Act of 1664, making it illegal to hold church meetings of over five people. It prohibited "... more than five persons in addition to members of the family, for any religious purpose not according to the rules of the Church of England." The word "conventicle" is derived from the word "convenant" and referred to gatherings of church members according to Jesus' promise in Matthew 18:20, "Where two or three are met together in my name." The English Book of Canon Law, Article 11, stated: "All conventicles and secret meetings ... have...

    A top FDNY official says it’s “most definitely” acceptable to exclude a white firefighter from a ceremonial unit based solely on his skin color... Cecilia Loving, the department’s chief diversity and inclusion officer, is defending a decision to kick Lt. Daniel McWilliams — one of three firefighters in the iconic 9/11 Ground Zero flag-raising photo — off a color-guard procession so it would be all-black. Loving testified at a state Divsion of Human Rights trial on McWilliam’s complaint that he was the victim of racial bias.

    Virginia kindergarten students will learn about institutional racism alongside the alphabet, according to a new curriculum created for the upcoming school year. Loudoun County is adding "social justice" to the mission of teaching elementary school students reading, writing, and arithmetic. The Washington, D.C., suburb—the richest county in the country—has teamed up with the Southern Poverty Law Center's (SPLC) education arm Teaching Tolerance to develop its new curriculum. The proposed lesson plan will restructure history and social studies classes to emphasize slavery as fundamental to American society for students from kindergarten to the fifth grade. "Sugarcoating or ignoring slavery until later...

    Teachers in Virginia's largest school district have developed a new "anti-racist" and "culturally responsible" curriculum that will be available to students as early as this fall. Social studies teachers from Fairfax County collaborated with other Virginia public school teachers to revamp their history curriculum, using a framework from Teaching Tolerance, the educational arm of the liberal nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center. The new curriculum encourages students to "examine materials, events, and institutions critically attending to power, position, and bias" and will be available for use in 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 11th-grade classrooms.

    White privilege is often described through the lens of Peggy McIntosh’s groundbreaking essay “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack.” Originally published in 1988, the essay helps readers recognize white privilege by making its effects personal and tangible. For many, white privilege was an invisible force that white people needed to recognize. It was being able to walk into a store and find that the main displays of shampoo and panty hose were catered toward your hair type and skin tone. It was being able to turn on the television and see people of your race widely represented. It was being...

    “Tolerance of intolerance is cowardice.” Ayaan Hirsi Ali Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones, a Democrat, has just resigned from his office. He said he is “leaving the plantation.” Why? Because he expressed his support for President Trump. He believed that Trump’s policies have benefitted blacks, includingTrump's support for black colleges and prison reform. He was even brave enough to express the truth that it is Joe Biden who has long supported racist policies. What did he get for his courage and honesty? Vicious harassment by his fellow Democrats. So he has stepped down. The left does not tolerate straying from...

    Conservative Christian commentator Matt Walsh is condemning complacent Christians in America, saying that, in some cases, Christians are called to be intolerant. Walsh, a nationally known podcast host and writer for the conservative online website The Daily Wire, is warning that many Christians in America today are constructing their own religion based on cherrypicked ideas from the Bible that support their agenda of tolerance and inclusion. Walsh released his second book earlier this month titled Church of Cowards: A Wake-Up Call to Complacent Christians. He told The Christian Post that the book offers his “diagnosis of the problem that most...

    What does it mean to be tolerant? The dictionary defines tolerance as respect for opinions, beliefs, and practices that differ from your own. But in our polarized cultural climate, it has come to mean something else entirely. Greg Koukl, president of Stand to Reason, sorts it all out.

    Claiming to be the "only true Christian running for president this year," Democratic candidate, former Mayor Pete Buttigieg explained why religious objections to the LGBTQ agenda "cannot be allowed." "The right to freedom of religion is a right to worship as you choose as long as what you choose to believe does not contradict the public policy guaranteeing that lesbians,' gays,' bisexuals,' transsexuals,' and bleep' rights to be accepted as they are," Buttigieg said. "In the privacy of your own mind you can harbor whatever thoughts you want, but in public you must obey the laws enacted by our courts...

    Peace is better than war. And, if we want our world to be at peace, we need to support the peace makers and to understand those who are different from us rather than demonise them. For this reason, the two politicians I most admire in American politics right now are the two peace candidates for president: POTUS and Tulsi Gabbard. I don’t need to educate Free Republic readers about why I love The Donald. You already know the reasons for saying that he is an outstanding president who thoroughly deserves reelection. But in the case of Gabbard, these are the...

    A UK magazine called ArtsProfessional has published the results of a “Freedom of Expression survey” and the results are not good. The survey found that in the professional art world in the UK , self-censorship is the norm and pressure to stay silent on controversial issues is felt by most. A culture of self-censorship and fear of backlash from funders, colleagues and the public is convincing arts and cultural workers to stay silent on important issues, according to new research from ArtsProfessional… While about 90% of respondents agreed that “the arts and cultural sector has a responsibility to use its...

    State Democrats stormed out of the Virginia House chamber Tuesday after a black pastor condemned abortion and gay marriage through prayer. Rev. Robert M. Grant Jr. of The Father’s Way Church in Warrenton, Virginia, addressed the Democrat-controlled House of Delegates with an opening prayer that condemned abortion and gay marriage, Media Research Center reported. Grant’s prayer caused members to storm out of the chamber and for one member to yell, “Is this a prayer or a sermon?” The pastor defended his actions by saying the “state house belongs to all the citizens.” “And all the citizens have a voice,” Grant...

    A pro-LGBT stunt at a Missouri high school backfired recently when students responded by hoisting the rebel flag. A student at West Plains High School first handed out small pro-LGBT rainbow flags on Dec. 9, according to KY3. It didn't take long for other students to rebel. The next day, a group of rebellious students raised a Confederate flag in the school's lunchroom, the outlet reported. Schilmoeller said she distributed nearly 60 of the pro-LGBT flags. "It's like they were mocking us," another upset student, Taylor Pool, told KY3, "but not only was it that they were mocking us, they...

Hartman said that during the time the restaurants were open, employees and patrons were harassed by people who took issue with the politics of Kris Kobach, the controversial politician who lost his bid to become Kansas governor last November with Hartman as his running mate. Kobach, the former Kansas Secretary of State, is now a Republican U.S. Senate candidate. From the first day the restaurants opened, Hartman said, people were writing obscene messages on menus, spitting on his employees, urinating on employees’ cars and shouting at people who went into the restaurant that they should eat somewhere else. “We...
