How Many Â“Home-GrownÂ” Muslim Attacks Before An Muslim Immigration MoratoriumÂ—And Expulsions?
Post Date: 2016-06-13 13:47:27 by nativist nationalist
After 9/11, I quoted VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelows response in his 1995(!) book Alien Nation: Common Sense About Americas Immigration Disaster to the template immigrant valedictorian sobstory: [W]e might, equally reasonably, expect to see balancing anecdotal coverage like this:
In February 1993, a gang of Middle Easterners, (mostly illegally overstaying after entering on non-immigrant visasone banned as a terrorist but admitted on a tourist visa in error) blow up New York`s World Trade center, killing six and injuring more than 1,000!! In December 1993, a Jamaican immigrant (admitted as a student, but stayed, illegal status automatically regularized ...

Still think Trump is full of crap on blocking Islamic Migration and entry until we can reliably figure out who is a radical Islamist and who is not? The gunman, whose identity was not immediately released, may have leanings toward radical Islam, FBI Special Agent in Charge Ron Harper said when asked whether the suspect had ties to Jihadist terror groups. Harper said the investigation is looking into possible threats made previously by the suspect in connection to radical Islam groups. He said the agency is still investigating and has yet to confirm any role a terror group may have played in the mass shooting. There are allegations the individual made threats in the past ...
Southern Baptists see 9th year of membership decline
Post Date: 2016-06-11 21:48:27 by Willie Green
NASHVILLE, Tenn. The Southern Baptist Convention lost more than 200,000 members in 2015 the ninth straight year of decline for the nations largest Protestant denomination. Membership stands at 15.3 million, down from 15.5 million in 2014, according to denomination statistics released this week. Baptisms also fell by more than 10,000 to just a little more than 295,000. Baptisms are an important measure for the Nashville-based denomination because of its strong commitment to evangelism. After the numbers were announced, some denominational leaders emphasized the positive news that the number of Southern Baptist churches increased last year by 294, mostly due to new ...
Libertarianism, Yes! But *What Kind* of Libertarianism? ('Virtue Libertarianism')
Post Date: 2016-06-09 18:49:59 by Hondo68
Virtue vs. Libertinism or, a Reason debate on liberty, license, coercion, and responsibility. Artem Konovalov / 123rf If you've been part of the broad-based libertarian movement for more than a few years, you know that it is growing in popularity, visibility, and influence throughout American politics, culture, and ideas. Once a smallish movement tightly identified with the likes of Ayn Rand, Robert Heinlein, and Milton Friedman, rarely a day goes by now where some new writer, thinker, pundit, artist, or celebrity doesn't come out as libertarian (among the most recent: Jane's Addiction guitarist and TV host Dave Navarro and Republican political consultant Mary Matalin). ...
National Cathedral Will Remove Confederate Flags From Stained Glass Windows
Post Date: 2016-06-09 14:09:39 by Willie Green
The Washington National Cathedral says it will remove two images of the Confederate battle flag from the building's stained glass windows. Then the church will hold a period of public discussion on issues of race, slavery and justice and revisit the question of how to treat other depictions of the Civil War on the windows. The windows in question memorialize Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson; they were installed in 1953 after lobbying by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. They feature images from the lives of the two generals and include two Confederate battle flags. A five-person task force that examined the windows' symbolic power said the flags cannot ...
The Undertaker Pope: A Brief Study of an Infallibly Politically Correct Pontificate
Post Date: 2016-06-06 17:06:13 by IbJensen
In the fourth year of his pontificate, Francis continues to deliver regular payloads of explosive off-the-cuff remarks that delight the media and shock the Catholic faithful. It would be easy at this point simply to ignore these spectacles, but then one would be ignoring a key element of the manner in which Francis is attempting to realize his vision of the Church. As Francis himself has insisted, his magisterium includes an endless stream of informal speech in various venues: Im constantly making statements, giving homilies. Thats magisterium. Thats what I think, not what the media say that I think. Check it out; its very clear. ...
Is this the end of Catholicism?

This was harder than I thought it would be, Margaret OBrien told a CBS reporter last weekend. OBrien, 86, had been one of the hundred or so parishioners holding a round-the-clock vigil at St. Frances X. Cabrini church in Scituate, Mass. Eleven years ago the Boston Archdiocese announced that it was closing the parish, a reorganization necessitated by the financial settlements after the clergy sex-abuse scandal. The parishioners at St. Frances have tried to alter the hierarchys decision using canon law as well as the US legal system, maintaining a presence in the building so it would not be sold out from under them. But last month, they lost their final appeal ...
'The Exorcist' maker says Vatican let him film real rite
Post Date: 2016-05-19 17:20:21 by cranky
William Friedkin, the director of the horror classic "The Exorcist", has revealed that he was allowed to film a real exorcism at the Vatican earlier this month. The 80-year-old American filmmaker told a masterclass at the Cannes film festival late on Thursday that he was invited by the chief exorcist in Rome to record the event. "I was invited by the Vatican exorcist to shoot and video an actual exorcism which... few people have ever seen and which nobody has ever photographed," he said. Friedkin said he was taken aback at how close the ceremony was to the exorcism depicted in his 1973 film. "I was pretty astonished by that. I don't think I will ever be ...
Muslim Refugees Run To Christianity In Europe

Muslim Refugees Run To Christianity In Europe Read more at http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm? Many Muslim refugees fleeing war-torn Syria, and other Middle Eastern countries are converting to Christianity once they get to Europe, various news organizations are reporting. While there would be harsh repercussions for doing this in Syria or Iraq, there are still some obstacles new believers face. Christianity Today reported on a mass baptism of 80 refugees from Iran and Afghanistan in Hamburg, Germany. Albert Babajan, the pastor doing the Baptisms, said there have been about 200 so far this year and he expects as many as 500 before the year ends. Denmark and Austria are also ...
Only as much religion as will save them from Hell!
Post Date: 2016-05-18 21:18:24 by Don
Only as much religion as will save them from Hell! (Horatius Bonar) There are multitudes of professing Christians among us, who want only as much religion as will save them from Hell--not an atom more! The world is their real god. Gold is their idol. They worship in mammon's temple! Love God with all their heart!--they do not so much as understand the meaning of such a thing. Sacrifice riches, place, honor, and friends to Christ!--they scoff at the thing as madness. Oh, be out and out for God! Do not trifle with religion. Do not mock God and Christ. Do not love the world. Be pious in your inmost soul. Do not mistake mere sentimentalism for saving religion--or a good character for ...
A Virgin Mary statue in a Fresno house is being called a miracle

Same-Sex Marriage Didn't End It
Post Date: 2016-05-06 15:50:52 by redleghunter
Anyone who thought that legalizing same-sex marriage would end the hassles is in for a rude surprise. Unexpected consequences are popping up all over. The mayor of Charlottesville, N. Carolina followed the Houston playbook and passed an ordinance that "transgendered" men, who "identified" as women, could freely use the women's bathrooms and changing rooms. The state legislature responded by convening a special session to pass a statewide law protecting the privacy of North Carolina ladies. Homosexual outrage exploded. 100 corporate CEOs signed a letter to the governor demanding repeal of the state law. These were not small outfits, either: Apple, Bank of America, ...
Fire ravages Muslim prayer hall in Corsica
Post Date: 2016-05-01 02:20:31 by nativist nationalist
Ajaccio (France) (AFP) - A Muslim prayer hall in the French island of Corsica was ravaged by fire on Saturday in what prosecutors said was probably a criminal attack. The blaze occurred just months after the island, popular with tourists for its turquoise waters and picturesque mountains, was rocked by anti-Arab riots over Christmas. French President Francois Hollande vowed a swift investigation into the blaze, and action if necessary. "If it is confirmed to be of criminal origin, those responsible must be rapidly identified and brought to justice," he said. "Any anti-religious act must not be tolerated," he added in a statement. The building, one of the largest ...
If God Is Dead…
Post Date: 2016-04-26 18:17:59 by nativist nationalist
In a recent column Dennis Prager made an acute observation. The vast majority of leading conservative writers
have a secular outlook on life.
They are unaware of the disaster that godlessness in the West has led to. These secular conservatives may think that America can survive the death of God and religion, writes Prager, but they are wrong. And, indeed, the last half-century seems to bear him out. A peoples religion, their faith, creates their culture, and their culture creates their civilization. And when faith dies, the culture dies, the civilization dies, and the people begin to die. Is this not the recent history of the West? Today, no ...

Vice Presidential nominee's LDS rant against two-party "dolts": A word on voting from Scott Bradley himself

To the editor:Recently, Geoff vonGermeten relegated me to cult status. He mistakenly stated that I did not vote in the last presidential election. While I did not vote for either Democrat or Republican because both candidates well documented historic positions on such critical issues as military adventurism, abortion, government-mandated health care, same-sex marriage, economic policy, climate change, internationalism, etc., made their potential administrations essentially indiscernible, all of Utahs electoral votes went to the Republican. He laments that 11 million Republicans nation-wide did not vote in that election, and thereby threw the election to Mr. Obama. ...
Pope Francis Shatters Reformers’ Dreams with ‘Modern Family’ Document
Post Date: 2016-04-08 08:40:17 by cranky
Pope Francis released his long-awaited letter on marriage and families Friday, and despite predictions of radical changes in Church teaching, Francis hewed to the line of his predecessors regarding traditional Catholic doctrine on marriage and family life. In March, progressive German Cardinal Walter Kasper confidently stated in an interview that the Popes letter will be the first step in a reform that will turn the page back for the Church after a period of 1700 years, especially regarding questions of divorce and remarriage. None of this materialized in the Popes 261-page text. In fact, although the Popes tone is gentle and eminently pastoral, the ...

Muslim-Christian relations in Ethiopia
Post Date: 2016-03-23 23:42:55 by goodnessmarlok
1. Introduction According to Levine (2007), Ethiopias religious traditions have at least three distinguishing features: first, Ethiopia received three great Semitic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) at a very early point. It adopted Judaism at the earliest period, and still has an indigenous Judaic community. Then, it adopted Christianity in the 4th century A.D. and made it the official religion of the Axumite Kingdom. This makes Ethiopia the home of one of the oldest Christian communities like Armenia, Egypt, and Syria. Ethiopia was also the first country who made early contacts with Islam and gave shelter to first Muslim converts who came from Mecca. Second, the three ...
Confession of Saint Patrick
Post Date: 2016-03-16 23:43:08 by redleghunter
Confession 1 My name is Patrick. I am a sinner, a simple country person, and the least of all believers. I am looked down upon by many. My father was Calpornius. He was a deacon; his father was Potitus, a priest, who lived at Bannavem Taburniae[Nota]. His home was near there, and that is where I was taken prisoner. I was about sixteen at the time. At that time, I did not know the true God. I was taken into captivity in Ireland, along with thousands of others. We deserved this, because we had gone away from God, and did not keep his commandments. We would not listen to our priests, who advised us about how we could be saved[Nota]. The Lord brought his strong anger upon us, and scattered us ...

Hillary Clintons much publicized visit to Foundry United Methodist Church yesterday brought back many memories. My first assignment with IRD 20 years ago was to research and publish an article on Foundrys then controversial pastor Phil Wogaman, a longtime liberal theologian who had taught at Wesley Seminary. He was an old time Social Gospel modernist, skeptical of biblical miracles but confident about perfecting society through state power. My subsequent report on Wogamans theology and politics was picked up by columnist Cal Thomas, which led to longtime Foundry members Bob and Elizabeth Dole, then in a presidential campaign, publicly quitting ...
Georgia Pastafarian can wear colander in Nevada license photo

That state let him wear a colander in his photo.I was tired of waiting, Avino said in an email.Avino is a Pastafarian, and claims that the colander ...
Anger and Citizenship

The Iowa caucuses are in the rear-view mirror, the New Hampshire primary looms on the horizon, and by most media accounts, the leitmotif of Campaign 2016 is anger. As in: a lot-of-Americans-are-angry-and-that-explains-the attraction-of-certain-candidates, whether that be the anti-political-correctness anger of Donald Trump voters, the anti-government anger of Ted Cruz voters, or the Obama-hasnt-been-radical-enough anger of Bernie Sanders voters. For those of us with long cinematic memories, its rather reminiscent of the Howard Beale character in Network, urging people to stick their heads out the window and holler, Im mad as hell and Im not going ...
Franklin Graham: ‘Islam and Christianity Clearly Do Not Worship the Same God’

Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God, celebrated evangelist Franklin Graham said in response to the controversial claim by a faculty member at Wheaton College in Illinois. In a series of tweets late Saturday night, Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham, laid out his opposition to the recommendation of the colleges faculty council that the school drop its plans to terminate a professor who published her belief that Islam and Christianity worship the same God, which Graham said was no minor issue. Professor Hawkins of @WheatonCollege published her belief that Islam & Christianity worship the same God. This is no minor issue. 1/3 Franklin Graham ...
