The Synagogue of Satan, (See Revelation 2:9) is at war with you Christian - WAKE UP! http://www.haaretzdaily.com/hasen/spages/641853.html ADL's Foxman warns of efforts to 'Christianize America' By Shlomo Shamir, Haaretz Correspondent NEW YORK - Institutionalized Christianity in the U.S. has grown so extremist that it poses a tangible danger to the principle of separation of church and state and threatens to undermine the religious tolerance that characterizes the country, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League, Abraham Foxman, warned in his address to the League's national commission, meeting in New York ...
Muslima sues Disney: demands to wear hijab while appearing before customers
Post Date: 2012-08-15 08:33:00 by A K A Stone
"The Constitution tells me I can be Muslim, and I can wear the head scarf. Who is Disney to tell me I cannot?" A private company with a dress code that it is (at least so far) still free to implement. But the point of this case is to reinforce the principle that wherever Islamic law and American law and practice conflict, it is American law and practice that must give way. "Muslim Employee Suing Disney Over Right to Wear Hijab," from KTLA, August 13 (thanks to Pamela Geller): LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- A Muslim woman who worked as a hostess at a Disneyland restaurant is suing Disney, claiming the company wouldn't let her appear in front of guests while wearing her ...
Pat Robertson To LGBT Students: ‘Bring Forth A Baby’ Or ‘Shut Your Mouth’
Post Date: 2012-08-10 14:13:41 by Brian S
Televangelist Pat Robertson says that LGBT students protesting Christian fast food chain Chick-fil-A at about 30 colleges and universities across the U.S. should shut their mouth until they can bring forth a baby from that part of the anatomy which they concentrate on. During his Friday 700 Club broadcast, Robertson said he was outraged that activists were protesting a piece of white meat chicken between two pieces of white bread. I was reading today in Leviticus, which is the law of the Old Testament, but it lays out the reasons why land will vomit out its inhabitants and it goes through a category of stuff we are calling constitutional rights: ...
Catholic Nuns Send Letter To Romney Challenging His ‘Woeful Lack Of Knowledge’ About The Poor
Post Date: 2012-08-10 14:11:44 by Brian S
The group of Catholic nuns who launched the Nuns On A Bus tour to shed light on the effects the House Republican budget would have on the poor turned its attention to the GOPs presidential candidate this week, challenging Mitt Romney to join them for a day to learn about the plight of the poor. NETWORK, a Catholic social justice organization, issued the call on Wednesday and was joined yesterday by the Franciscan Action Network, an organization of friars and sisters. The nuns have now sent a letter to the Romney campaign, asking the candidate to join them during his current swing through Ohio. The letter again challenges Romneys misleading television ads about welfare reform, ...
Muslim Cleric Says Sodomy Allowed if Used for Jihadist Butt Bombs
Post Date: 2012-08-03 19:28:42 by CZ82
Muslim Cleric Says Sodomy Allowed if Used for Jihadist Butt Bombs posted on August 3, 2012 by da Tagliare There are some things where Islam and Christianity agree and that should not be a surprise since we both trace our faiths back to Abraham in the Old Testament. On the issue of homosexuality, both religions agree that it is a grievous sin. The Bible and the Quran teach it is wrong and punishable by death. Sadly, Christians have fallen away from the following biblical law, but many Muslim nations have not. In some Muslim countries, homosexuality can result in years in prison up to the death penalty. However in todays climate of Muslim extremism, we are learning that they are ...
The child of Satan!

The child of Satan! (James Smith, "The Love of Christ! The Fullness, Freeness, and Immutability of the Savior's Grace Displayed!") "For all who are led by the Spirit of God--are children of God!" Romans 8:14 If we are sons of God--we shall be led by the Spirit of God. And if we are led by the Spirit of God--we shall be led in the paths of righteousness and holiness! The sons of God do not, cannot--love sin, live in sin, or make light of sin! He who loves and lives in sin--is the child of Satan!

Federal Judge Orders Tennessee To Stop Blocking Muslims From Worshiping In New Mosque
Post Date: 2012-07-19 14:25:08 by Brian S
Just in time for the holy month of Ramadan, a federal judge has ruled that Tennessee county officials need to stop blocking worshipers from occupying their newly-built mosque, overruling a county judges order that was preventing the mosque from opening. The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro sued Rutherford County, TN yesterday, asking the district judge for an emergency order to allow the mosque to open its doors to worshipers before Ramadan begins at sundown today. Federal prosecutors also filed a similar lawsuit in Nashville, alleging violations of the federal law that guarantees freedom of religion and equal protection under the Constitution. The Beckett Fund for Religious Liberty ...
Israeli Lawmaker Destroys Copy Of The New Testament
Post Date: 2012-07-18 13:30:40 by Brian S
JERUSALEM -- Calling the Christian faiths New Testament a despicable book, a right-wing Israeli lawmaker tore up a copy of the biblical text and threw it in a trash can as one of his aides took pictures that he later released to Israeli media. Lawmaker Michael Ben-Ari, of the far-right National Union Party, blamed Christianity and the New Testament for the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe that led to the slaughter of 6 million Jews during the Holocaust. The copy of the New Testament had been sent to Israeli lawmakers by the Bible Society of Israel in an attempt to foster goodwill among the religions, according to a report Tuesday in Israels Maariv newspaper, which ...
Study: There’s nothing to fear from Radical Islam. Really?
Post Date: 2012-07-15 16:19:55 by CZ82
Study: Theres nothing to fear from Radical Islam. Really? Eric Rauch If researchers at Arizona State University are to be believed, Americans (and the rest of the world), have completely misunderstood the mission of radical Muslim groups like al Qaeda and al Shabaab. Apparently, these robed, rocket-launcher wielding foot-soldiers are not particularly concerned with global domination. Nope, their real goal is to protect and preserve their culture from Western influence. In other words, these artists formerly known as terrorists are patriotic, not parochial. In what can only be described as academic double-speak, these ASU academics have determined that even though the ...
Condoleezza Rice and America’s Secularism Problem
Post Date: 2012-07-15 16:15:20 by CZ82
Condoleezza Rice and Americas Secularism Problem Gary DeMar Condoleezza Rice is being considered as Romneys VP pick. Musically talented, smart, a great speaker, but what does she really believe? The picture I cant get out of my mind is Rice swearing in homosexual physician Mark Dybul as the United States Global AIDS coordinator at a ceremony on October 10, 2007 with his partner and Laura Bush in attendance. There is a battle raging today over the role religion plays in public and political life. To hear secularists tell it, religion is the problem and reason is the solution. Fundamentalists of all types are being singled out as the inhibitors of progress ...
Georgia Home-Schooled Girl Punished With Shock Collar Because ‘The Bible Says’
Post Date: 2012-07-13 16:58:00 by Brian S
A Georgia couple was arrested this week on charges of child cruelty and false imprisonment after their 15-year-old daughter told authorities that she was forced to live in a chicken coop and wear a remote-controlled shock collar. The 15-year-old, who was home schooled, reportedly said that her adopted parents, Samuel and Diana Franklin, punished her for not finishing school work by spending up to six days at a time in the chicken coop behind their house in Butler over the past two years. Chicken coops are known to have high levels of ammonia (PDF) which can be dangerous to both humans and animals. Authorities said that the girl was also forced to do manual labor and spend time in a ...

A Phoenix man who violated city zoning laws by hosting a Bible study in the privacy of his home has started serving a 60-day jail sentence for his crimes. Michael Salman was found guilty in the City of Phoenix Court of 67 code violations. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail along with three years of probation and a $12,180 fine. A spokesperson for the city attorney confirmed that Salman reported to a county jail Monday afternoon. Members of Salmans Bible study group posted video of their teacher as he self-reported to the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office. It was an emotional scene. We believe that people should not be prohibiting other people from having Bible studies in ...
Franz JÃ¤gerstÃ¤tter and the Indestructibility of Free Will
Post Date: 2012-07-09 17:12:15 by Capitalist Eric
"If I must write...with my hands in chains, I find that much better than if my will were in chains." Franz Jägerstätter
2012 marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of the papal encyclical Mit Brennender Sorge ("With Burning Anxiety") which denounced National Socialism and any ideology that "divinizes" the state "to an idolatrous level." Such ideologies were increasingly widespread in Europe in 1937, and after four years of Hitler, the German state had become increasingly brutal, and even those who escaped slavery or murder saw what few rights they had left under siege. Things would become much worse, and by 1943, when the ...

Muslims: 'Wipe Christianity from face of earth' Threatens to place those who resist Islamic system of world government 'under a police state' by Michael Carl A Muslim group has released its plan to wipe Christianity from the face of the earth, Islamize the West and establish an Islamic system of world government placing those who resist under a police state.

Archaeologists Discover Stunning Ancient Synagogue & Mosaic Featuring the Biblical Figure Samson Posted on July 5, 2012 at 9:01am by Billy Hallowell Archaeologists continue to make discoveries that shed further light on Biblical times. This week, the latest noteworthy finding is an ancient synagogue uncovered in the Jewish village of Huqoq in Northern Israel. The structure, dated to the fourth and fifth centuries (the Talmudic and late Roman periods, as CNN notes), includes a mosaic floor that depicts the Biblical figure Samson, women and a Hebrew inscription. (Related: Do These Ancient Biblical Bones Belong to John the Baptist?) The building, discovered ...
GENESIS AND SCIENCE

There is currently running a thread relating to the scientist Richard Dawkins who doesn't know for sure if he is an athiest or not. Rather than clutter that thread with my musings which don't relate to him specifically, I've decided to post this vanity. I may be all wet but then again, I may have found something that would make some folks wake up and say, 'whoa, wait a minute'. The following two scriptures are from the King James Version with Strongs numbers listed. I've included the numbers for a reason.

Pope appoints doctrinal watchdog with links to 'Marxist' Catholics
Post Date: 2012-07-03 17:26:29 by redleghunter
Gerhard Ludwig Müller, who has defended liberation theologists and written a book on the poor, will lead key department. Pope Benedict on Monday appointed as the Roman Catholic church's doctrinal watchdog a fellow German with links to liberation theology, the interpretation of Christianity that conservatives have deplored as Marxism with a cross in place of a hammer and sickle. Gerhard Ludwig Müller, 64, the bishop of Regensburg in Bavaria, is to take over the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the direct successor of the department created in the 16th century to manage the Inquisition. It is generally regarded as the second most important department in the Vatican ...
Mormons quit church in mass resignation ceremony
Post Date: 2012-07-01 09:22:03 by SJN
SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - A group of about 150 Mormons quit their church in a mass resignation ceremony in Salt Lake City on Saturday in a rare display of defiance ending decades of disagreement for some over issues ranging from polygamy to gay marriage. Participants from Utah, Arizona, Idaho and elsewhere gathered in a public park to sign a "Declaration of Independence from Mormonism." "This feels awesome," said Alison Lucas, from West Jordan, Utah, who took part in the rally amid soaring temperatures. "I don't know if I would have had the courage except in a group." The Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is known for its culture of ...
Michelle Obama cites Jesus as model for citizenship (African Methodist Episcopal church)
Post Date: 2012-07-01 00:12:31 by Hondo68
First lady Michelle Obama Thursday offered a rare public reflection on her religious faith, telling a conference of the African Methodist Episcopal church that the life of Jesus Christ is a model for democratic organizing. "It's kind of like church," Obama said. "Our faith journey isn't just about showing up on Sunday for a good sermon and good music and a good meal. It's about what we do Monday through Saturday as well, especially in those quiet moments, when the spotlight's not on us, and we're making those daily choices about how to live our lives. "We see that in the life of Jesus Christ. Jesus didn't limit his ministry to the four walls ...
Famed Crystal Cathedral To Become Catholic Church
Post Date: 2012-06-27 17:35:21 by Brian S
GARDEN GROVE, Calif. The Crystal Cathedral made famous by the televangelist program the "Hour of Power" is losing its religion. The soaring, glass-paned sanctuary will soon begin its transition from a Protestant landmark to a Catholic cathedral after the Diocese of Orange bought it in bankruptcy proceedings. The upcoming change in ownership has raised questions about the future of the Southern California televangelist dynasty founded by the Rev. Robert H. Schuller and upset some longtime members of the church once dubbed the "Westminster Abbey of America." The diocese has announced they will rename the Crystal Cathedral the Christ Cathedral. The diocese also ...

Reinvigorated Islam By Amil Imani Trauma, viruses, or bacteria cause the death of a biological entity. Viruses and bacteria are major killers of human beings and present great challenges to medicine. They can be deadly and have the uncanny ability to mutate. Yet they are there for their mission of ending life. Life exists due to balance: body and soul, good and evil, and life and death. This holds true even to the lesser foundations of our lives, and how we spend our time. The small, seemingly trivial ripples that we create each day eventually build into a wave -- the wave of mankind. The moment a new entity is formed, an array of forces work to end it. Death, in effect, is pre-birth. ...
Is This the Civil War Obama’s Looking For? Bishops Prep Catholics for Mass Defiance
Post Date: 2012-06-03 08:41:54 by CZ82
May 28, 2012 by Tad Cronn The U.S. Catholic Bishops are preparing Catholics for what some are saying may be the largest wave of civil disobedience since the Civil Rights Movement. The Catholic Church last week sued the Obama Administration over President Obamas decree that all employers must pay for health insurance that covers abortions, sterilizations and contraceptives, all of which violate Catholic moral teachings. The pope himself has spoken on the issue and pointed out the threat posed by Obamas attempt to force Catholics to cooperate in intrinsically evil practices. Despite the lawsuits whose 43 plaintiffs include the New York and Washington Archdioceses ...
Churches in Maine Rising Up Against Gay Marriage Ballot Measure
Post Date: 2012-05-28 16:20:02 by CZ82
Churches in Maine Rising Up Against Gay Marriage Ballot Measure posted on May 28, 2012 by Giacomo For the past fifty to sixty years, churches in America have quietly sat back while minority groups have pushed their immoral and anti-biblical agendas. Theyve allowed the Bible and Christianity to be removed from schools and any government and public institution. As churches sit quietly by, homosexuality has been rearing its ugly head and consuming the American culture. However, a number of churches in Maine have finally decided to stand up for the Bible. Reports filtering out of Maine indicate that churches are banning together to campaign against same-sex marriage. Protect ...
Liberal Catholicism: Requiescat in Pace
Post Date: 2012-05-26 14:08:51 by CZ82
Liberal Catholicism: Requiescat in Pace by Samuel Gregg With the dust settling on the uproar which followed the Vaticans April intervention into the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), its possible to put this and other emerging trends into a longer-term perspective. The blustering reaction of the LCWR and supporters such as the New York Times Nicholas Kristof (whose grasp of rudimentary Catholic teaching is, well, rudimentary) confirms whats been apparent for some time: that its almost game-over for self-identified liberal or dissenting Catholics. (More detail on the LCWR can be found in this recent Crisis article.) The ...

Baptist Leader Explains Why Christians Oppose Homosexuality Posted on May 21, 2012 at 12:05pm by Billy Hallowell R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, recently shared his belief that Christians have been guilty of condemnation and their own form of homophobia. Despite his open discussion about the mishandling of gay issues in Christian circles, Mohler is doubling down on the Bibles stance on homosexuality. In a CNN Belief Blog article published on Monday, Mohler attempts to explain the Bibles stance on homosexuality, while answering critics commonly held objections. He begins by bringing up one ...
