Christian colleges demand 'basic Christian teachings'
Post Date: 2015-09-11 11:06:22 by redleghunter
Several colleges and universities are threatening to resign from the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities if two other members are not held accountable for their same-sex policies. The Council has promised to address the issue of Eastern Mennonite University and Goshen College, which are hiring faculty and staff involved in same-sex marriages. Mark Tooley of the Institute on Religion and Democracy says some members want something done soon because they expect the Council to "uphold basic Christian teachings." Oklahoma Wesleyan University has dropped its membership in the Council, citing a lack of action by the CCCU. "CCCU's ambivalence in deciding the ...
Protestants: It’s Time to Come Back

Protestants: Its Time to Come Back Leila Miller April 2, AD2013 To my Protestant brothers and sisters: Its time to come back to Mother Church. We want you, we need you, we love you. Ive spent a lot of time in dialogue with activist atheists recently, and the direction we are going is not pretty. We are witnessing a rapid cultural decline into amorality. Satan seeks the ruin of souls through the destruction of marriage and family, and the quickest route to his goal is the profanation of sex. The truth and meaning of human sexuality is our eras cultural fault line, and unfortunately, Protestant denominations have been tumbling into its widening crevasse at ...

Kim Davis: The Guts of a Convert
Post Date: 2015-09-08 16:21:18 by redleghunter
Kim Davis may not have a legal leg to stand on (see here, and here). But I think some Christians are moving too quickly to critique her situation on a purely legal basis. We are Christians first, before we are Americans. So before we start talking about whether this is a good religious liberty case, or not, before we start distancing our educated selves from her simple faith, and before we take to the internet to show the liberal gestapo that we really are for the rule of law and that Kim Davis is a simpleton of a Christian who should have resigned before embarrassing us Christianslet's just step back from this fog and think with a faithful mind. Maybe it's ...
Did Muhammad Perform Miracles?
Post Date: 2015-09-08 15:02:46 by redleghunter
On Thursday, August 27, 2015, the first part of Irans most expensive movie trilogy, Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, opened nationwide in Iran. It took more than eighty months for this movie to be completed. Its primary goal, according to its director Majid Majidi, is to reclaim the rightful image of Islam, which he said extremists have distorted. The Iranian state has partly funded the film, most likely in an attempt to promote a Shiite understanding of the narrative of Muhammads life. This, of course, triggered controversy among Sunni Muslims. Al-Azhar University demanded that Iran refrain from releasing the movie, so that an undistorted image ...
Muslim Gang Rapists are Springing Up Everywhere. Why Can't We Be Honest About It?
Post Date: 2015-09-02 22:47:04 by Justified
The notorious Sydney gang rapes in 2000 were committed by Lebanese Australians. Muslim men raped women and girls as young as 14. Australia, being a sensible sort of place, identified that the rapists were targeting white girls and branded these monstrous acts racially-motivated hate crimes. Because thats what they looked like: one ethnicity was specifically targeting another. The Australian girls were vulnerable, and they were abused by Middle Eastern men who considered them trash. Had these men been at home, they would have raped their own, but in another country, women from outside their own community were preferable victims. Elsewhere in ...

Last year, the New York Times Magazine published an article pondering whether the Libertarian Moment has come at last. Five months before that, Pew reported that 50 percent of millennials identify as political independents. The same report also found that 51 percent of millennials favor gay marriage and 29 percent are religiously unaffiliated, dovetailing with other common libertarian views. Libertarians are quickly becoming more prolific, at the very least in their cultural impact if not in absolute numbers. Living in D.C.s periphery, I cant help but notice it. At a party over the summer, a friend and I were chatting when a young woman came up and joined the ...
Pope tells priests to pardon women who have abortions [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-09-01 08:17:04 by cranky
Pope Francis on Tuesday called on priests to pardon women who have abortions, and the doctors who perform them, during the upcoming Jubilee year -- overruling hardline traditionalists within the Catholic Church. "I have decided, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, to concede to all priests for the Jubilee Year the discretion to absolve of the sin of abortion those who have procured it and who, with contrite heart, seek forgiveness for it," he said. In a message outlining special measures for the Jubilee, Francis said he knew that while "the tragedy of abortion is experienced by some with a superficial awareness... many others... believe that they have no other ...

‘Sister Wives’ family points to same-sex marriage cases in arguing against Utah polygamy ban
Post Date: 2015-08-27 22:16:35 by cranky
The family of Kody Brown on Wednesday answered Utah's appeal to reinstate a ban on polygamy, and the family's brief is notable for what's there now that wasn't before. The Browns' attorney Jonathan Turley wages many of the same arguments that were successful in the lower court. But now Turley also cites recent rulings affirming same-sex marriage. That includes the U.S. Supreme Court case of Obergefell v. Hodges, in which the court upheld the fundamental right of same-sex couples to marry, and Kitchen v. Herbert, the case that brought same-sex marriage to Utah. Turley also cites a Supreme Court case that decriminalized all gay sex as sodomy, Lawrence V. Texas. ...
Origins of 'Gospel of Jesus's Wife' Begin to Emerge [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-08-24 21:47:48 by cranky
Written in Coptic (an Egyptian language), the Gospel of Jesus's Wife, if authentic, suggests that some people in ancient times believed Jesus was married, apparently to Mary Magdalene. The truth may be finally emerging about the "Gospel of Jesus's Wife," a highly controversial papyrus suggesting that some people, in ancient times, believed Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene. New research on the papyrus' ink points to the possibility that it is authentic, researchers say, while newly obtained documents may shed light on the origins of the business-card-sized fragment. Debate about the credibility of the "gospel" began as soon as Harvard University professor ...

The Shemitah Unraveled: What 2015-2016 Could Bring

As the world waits to see what the end of a seven-year biblical cycle known as the Shemitah may bring this fall, New York Times best-selling author Rabbi Jonathan Cahn issued a warning to prepare for economic calamity, war in the Middle East or even worse. "I will state a warning which I have stated before," Cahn told hundreds of people gathered at the Prophecy in the News conference in Orlando, Florida, this weekend. "Whether it comes in this time parameter of the Shemitah or the year following or not, I believe a great shaking is going to come to this land and to the world that will involve the collapsing of the American economy ... and the removal of its blessings and ...
Jihadi John flees ISIS in fear of his own life
Post Date: 2015-07-26 21:26:25 by buckeroo
The masked killer who featured in the ISIS beheading videos is on the run. Jihadi John,whose real name is Mohammed Emwazi, has fled the Islamic State-controlled territory, fearing that his publicity will eventually harm him. Emwazi turned into Britain's most notorious terrorists, wanted dead or alive, after murdering British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning, and American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff. However, this infamous glory seems to be following him to his doom as the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) is allegedly hunting down their 'star executioner', the Mirror reports. According to the report in Russia Today (RT), Emwazi is terrified that ...
Jesus Loves The Little Children
Post Date: 2015-07-23 15:42:28 by redleghunter
Oddly enough, its sometimes progressives who are most eager to move the culture backward. As we reflect in horror at the utter callousness with which some persons and organizations speak of (not to mention crush) the tiniest humans, its worth remembering that the ancient world was unabashedly open to the killing of children. For starters, they had almost none of the sentimentality we have towards kids. There was no Disney, no summer camps, no play dates. Family lifeeven if there was such a thingcertainly did not revolve around children. In general, children, were useful at best, burdens at worst, and almost never coddled. If there was one dominant fact regarding ...

On this day: St. Vladimir the Great of Kiev, Equal-to-the-Apostles is honored
Post Date: 2015-07-15 01:44:32 by Pericles
On this day the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, Lutheranism, and Eastern Orthodoxy celebrate the feast of St. Vladimir the Great. He was born about 958, ascended the throne of Kiev in 980 and died on July 15, 1015. Born a Slavic-Viking pagan, The Primary Chronicle reports that in the year 987, after consultation with his boyars, Vladimir the Great sent envoys to study the religions of the various neighboring nations whose representatives had been urging him to embrace their respective faiths: The envoys reported: "When we journeyed among the [Muslims], we beheld how they worship in their temple, called a mosque, while they stand ungirt.

Spreading the Gospel [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-07-13 23:35:19 by Don
It may be illegal in the not too distant future that spreading the Gospel will earn jail time, loss of job, fines, or any other punishments that Satan's cohorts will dream up. One thing I do now is put religious tracts in car-door handles in parking lots. It is illegal here to put any kind of advertising on cars parked on public streets and will earn fines or jail time. One way of spreading the gospel is by religious tracts. Public libraries are a good source of books in which Christians can place tracts. Libraries carry books on witchcraft, abortion, and many other categories of books that are prime targets for religious tracts. Free newspapers and magazines are carried in groceries ...

Ronald Reagan -- Man of Faith, Believer in the Gospel

Ronald Reagan: "Within the cover of that single book (the Bible) are ALL the answers to ALL the problems that face us today....if we'd only read AND believe." "The First Amendment was not written to protect people and their laws from religious values, it was written to protect those values...from government tyranny." "I've said that we must be cautious in claiming God is on our side; I think the real question we must answer is, 'Are we on *His* side?'" The Gipper gives great testimony to the Lord in this video as the source of his personal conviction, hope and strength, as well as America's.
ISIS makes the British lion a declawed and shabby cat
Post Date: 2015-07-04 19:32:28 by nativist nationalist
The recent and rapid successes of the Islamic State (IS) in seizing Palmyra in Syria and Ramadi in Iraq, together with its three successful same-day strikes on 26 June 2015 in Kuwait, France, and Tunisia seem to have left British Prime Minister David Cameron rather panicky like a twitchy kitten experiencing its first thunder-and lightning storm. In response to these events, Cameron has come somewhat unglued. The leader of a once mighty, respected, and feared nation has responded to ISs offensive operations by (a) calling on the UK Muslim leaders to perform a miracle and control the thoughts, sympathies, and actions of all members of the Muslim community; (b) predicting that IS ...
