Obama marks Ramadan with Iftar dinner WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is hosting an Iftar dinner Wednesday evening to celebrate the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The Iftar is the dinner that breaks the holiday's daily fast. The dinner became an annual White House tradition under President Bill Clinton and was continued by President George W. Bush. The White House says invited guests include religious and grass-roots leaders in the Muslim-American community as well as leaders of other faiths and elected officials. Earlier, the president has separate meetings with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.

SAN ANGELO, Texas (Reuters) - A Texas jury on Tuesday sentenced polygamist leader Warren Jeffs to life in prison plus 20 years for sexually assaulting two girls he claimed as "spiritual" brides. The 55-year-old leader of a Mormon breakaway sect was convicted there last week of sexual assault on a child and aggravated sexual assault on a child in connection with "marriages" to a 12-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl. Jeffs is the self-proclaimed "prophet" of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints, which has a ranch in west Texas and believes polygamy is the path to Heaven.
How Islamic punk went from fiction to reality (Gay drunk Muslims, who don't beat women)
Post Date: 2011-08-05 15:53:34 by Hondo68
Islamic punk was just an idea in a novel by a disaffected Muslim convert but for the bands he inspired around the world the scene became real. Now, as The Taqwacores is about to be released, has the scene already betrayed its ideals?The Taqwacores: "Islam through a dirty, gritty lens". There was a time when the words "Muslim radical" painted a clear enough picture a young man strapped with explosives, perhaps, or a bearded cleric calling for Sharia law from Land's End to John O'Groats. But things have changed. The protestors of the Arab Spring are both Muslim and radical, as are the bungling jihadis of Chris Morris's movie Four Lions. And ...
Gov. Christie Defends Appointing Muslim Judge: ‘This Sharia Law Business Is Crap’
Post Date: 2011-08-04 19:52:12 by Skip Intro
At this juncture, it may be more efficient to highlight which interactions between New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and the media are not newsworthy. The Republicans appointment of Muslim-American Sohail Mohammed to a state bench this week ruffled some feathers among some who fear the threat of Sharia Law, but when asked about those concerns, Gov. Christie made clear he had no patience for such ignorance, calling the complaints crap. Ignorance is behind the criticism of Sohail Mohammed, he told a reporter asking about the complaints that he may be inadequate to be a judge because he defended Muslim Americans who were wrongly arrested post-9/11. ...

Esther in her coffin at the service at which pro-life activists honored her body and her life. Orlando, FL, July 25, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) On this past Thursday, July 21, Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, preached at a memorial service for an aborted baby girl. The child was intact and her body was retrieved after a late-term abortion. The memorial service, organized by Operation Save America, was held outside of City Hall in Orlando. We are here because this baby was killed in the darkness, and we come to honor her in the bright light of day, Fr. Pavone declared in his remarks.

Christians Are Forcing Their Beliefs on People With Ground Zero Cross
Post Date: 2011-07-31 15:32:45 by Brian S
Extremist Christians in America are apparently getting worse and worse in the way they believe. As if it wasn't bad enough that some of them knock on your door to try to convert you, now they want their religious symbol to be the one that represents all who fell on September 11, 2001.A cross made from old girders is expected to become a monument at ground zero, to honor all those who died on 9/11, but why a cross? It seems that someone is forgetting that the United States is not a Christian country. There is no national faith, and there will hopefully never be. In fact, forcing a religion on the citizens of a country is fascism and against The Constitution.Placing this cross as a ...

Tomb of St. Philip the Apostle discovered in Turkey's Denizli D'Andria said the structure of the tomb and the writings on it proved that it belonged to St. Philip the Apostle, who is recognized as a martyr in the history of Christianity The tomb of St. Philip the Apostle, one of the original 12 disciples of Christianity's central figure Jesus Christ, has been discovered during the ongoing excavations in Turkey's south-western province of Denizli.

Debunking the Left-Wing Myths About 'Right-Wing, Extremist Christians' How many mischaracterizations can Peter Beinart make in a single paragraph? 2:55 PM, Jul 25, 2011 By MARK HEMINGWAY Peter Beinart has a doozy of a column up over at the Daily Beast, rather breathlessly titled, "Why Norway Could Happen Here." Since I suspect that Beinart managed to repeat every left-wing myth about the violent tendencies of Christians and conservatives, let's take a look at the key paragraph: Theres actually been a lot of right-wing, extremist Christian terrorism in the U.S. in recent years. The biggest terrorist attack in U.S. history prior to 9/11the 1996 ...

'Left-wing television commentators must be made to respect ... the law' Bradlee Dean A lawsuit seeking in excess of $50 million has been prepared against MSNBC and its talk-show entertainer Rachel Maddow over statements she made about a Minnesota-based ministry. Word of the development comes in an announcement from the YouCanRunButYouCannotHideInternational ministry run by former rock artist Bradlee Dean. The attorney handling the case is Larry Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch and now of Freedom Watch, who said money is not the issue. "This case is filed as a matter of principle," he said. "We need more Bradlee Deans in the world and hateful left wing ...

Post Date: 2011-07-21 19:09:16 by Brian S
Dissatisfaction and anger with the federal government is nothing new, but now even Almighty God is having a tough time getting support from the public. A recently released survey (PDF) by Public Policy Polling (PPP) found that only 52 percent of American voters approve of God's performance, while nine percent disapprove and 40 percent are just not sure. Among "very liberal" respondents, 19 percent disapproved. Only four percent of "very conservative" voters had a problem with the deity. At 71 percent, God got His highest marks for creating the universe. His handling of animals was approved by 56 percent, and 50 percent even approved of His handling of natural ...
The ABC Should Be Put Out Of Its Misery
Post Date: 2011-07-13 07:22:16 by CZ82
The ABC Should Be Put Out Of Its Misery Certainly one of the most unbalanced and biased programs ever shown on Australian television was aired on you guessed our ABC last night. It appeared on the ABC religion program Compass, and was the most appalling attempt at journalism I have seen in quite some time. But I have written about this program before. It is supposed to be a religious program but it instead does everything to push every religion but Christianity. When Christianity is featured, it is almost always attacked and/or trampled on as I have documented here: www.billmuehlenberg.com/2...%99s-war-on-christianity/ But last ...
As a New Dark Age Descends Upon the West
Post Date: 2011-07-02 01:32:41 by CZ82
As a New Dark Age Descends Upon the West The Judeo-Christian worldview was perhaps the most important element in the rise of Western civilisation. Other factors can be mentioned, but without the biblical worldview and its impact, the West as we know it would never have arisen. Many scholars and experts have spoken to this. As just one example, American sociologist Rodney Stark has written a number of important volumes on these themes. Consider his seminal 2005 volume, The Victory of Reason. In it he says, The success of the West, including the rise of science, rested entirely on religious foundations, and the people who brought it about were devout Christians. He continues: ...
Jeremiah Wright: Israel is to Judaism as Flavor Flav is to Christianity

Jeremiah Wright: Israel is to Judaism as Flavor Flav is to Christianity By Daniel Treiman · June 23, 2011 In case you needed a reminder, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright really does not like Israel. Wright -- who was last heard complaining that the Jews
. Zionists were keeping him from seeing his most powerful former congregant -- had some not-so-nice words for the Jewish state during a recent appearance at a black church in Baltimore. Baltimore Sun columnist Marta Mossburg was at the Empowerment Temple to hear Wright tell the thousands who had come to see him speak: "The state of Israel is an illegal, genocidal
place," he said. "To equate Judaism ...

Businessman Herman Cain, who, in the private sector, turned around many companies that nobody thought could be turned around, has been getting more attention and the requisite scrutiny that follows it as his polls numbers have risen in the past weeks. Cain appeals primarily for two reasons. First, he is not a Washington politician and does not speak like one, and that endears him to voters fed up with typical politicians in an anti-establishment cycle. Second, Cains successful private sector experience separates him from other outsider candidates in recent cycles such as Sharron Angle and Christine ODonnell that the establishment and the media mocked. Cains ...
Sex abusing priests? Blame it on Woodstock
Post Date: 2011-05-18 17:47:04 by CZ82
Sex abusing priests? Blame it on Woodstock Rick Moran Those who don't believe that religious entities like the Catholic Church aren't political should be disabused of that notion with the release of a study attempting to find out why priests abuse children. The $1.8 million study is supposed to be the definitive response of the US Catholic bishops to the epidemic of child abuse cases that have nearly destroyed the Catholic church in America. The fact that it will satisfy no one is the whole point of the exercise. They aimed for a report that was right down the middle and they got it. No blame goes to the celibacy of the priesthood. No blame goes to the increase in gay priests. ...

According to a report from the New York Daily News, Robert Fitzpatrick spent $140,000 for an ad campaign for signs on subway cars and bus shelters around the city reading "Global Earthquake!

Fitzpatrick told the newspaper how it will go down: "It'll start just before midnight, Jerusalem time: It'll be instantaneous and global," he said. "There are too many scriptures talking about 'sudden destruction.'" Fitzpatrick is ...
Presbyterians Approve Ordination of Gay People
Post Date: 2011-05-11 06:19:03 by Ferret Mike
After 33 years of debate, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has voted to change its constitution and allow openly gay people in same-sex relationships to be ordained as ministers, elders and deacons. Representatives of the Twin Cities presbytery, which covers Minneapolis and St. Paul, cast the deciding vote at its meeting on Tuesday. The outcome is a reversal from only two years ago, when a majority of the churchs regions, known as presbyteries, voted against ordaining openly gay candidates. This time, 19 of the churchs 173 presbyteries switched their votes from no to yes in recent months. The Twin Cities presbytery, which covers Minneapolis and St. Paul, cast the deciding ...

Why do Americans still dislike atheists?
Post Date: 2011-04-30 05:54:57 by Ferret Mike
Long after blacks and Jews have made great strides, and even as homosexuals gain respect, acceptance and new rights, there is still a group that lots of Americans just dont like much: atheists. Those who dont believe in God are widely considered to be immoral, wicked and angry. They cant join the Boy Scouts. Atheist soldiers are rated potentially deficient when they do not score as sufficiently spiritual in military psychological evaluations. Surveys find that most Americans refuse or are reluctant to marry or vote for nontheists; in other words, nonbelievers are one minority still commonly denied in practical terms the right to assume office despite the ...
Obama Removes Jesus from Easter Message
Post Date: 2011-04-24 23:58:32 by Hondo68
President Obama literally edited Christ out of his holiday greeting today when he excerpted a sermon given by a military chaplain on Iwo Jima on Easter Sunday 1945.Below is the relevant paragraph from Obamas holiday greeting today:The rites of Passover, and the traditions of Easter, have been marked by people in every corner of the planet for thousands of years. They have been marked in times of peace, in times of upheaval, in times of war.One such war-time service was held on the black sands of Iwo Jima more than sixty years ago. There, in the wake of some of the fiercest fighting of World War II, a chaplain rose to deliver an Easter sermon, consecrating the memory, he ...

Paper Mill in Afghanistan Recycled the Koran into Toilet Paper It is called supporting "green" technology and protecting the earth. Everybody needs to recycle. LOL (Gulf Times) Three people have been arrested as officials probe claims that a paper mill in Afghanistan recycled copies of the Holy Quran into toilet paper, the attorney generals office said yesterday. Around 1,000 angry demonstrators, some throwing stones, held a protest on Monday at the mill on the outskirts of Kabul, leaving the building partially destroyed. Copies of the Quran were found inside the factory, Kabul police spokesman Hashmat Stanikzai said, adding that no-one was injured in ...
