Ann Coulter On Fake Hate And The $PLC: The Great Hijab Cover-Up
Post Date: 2017-01-05 13:36:33 by nativist nationalist
Forget fake news; the real issue is fake hate. Has there been one (1) documented hate crime committed by white people against any hue in the Rainbow Coalition since Nov. 8? Thats out of the 9,456,723 hate crimes alleged by Americas leading hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC is to hate what Rolling Stone is to rape. It is the biggest peddler of fantasies since Walt Disney. Ive read through dozens of SPLC hate crimes and they are all lies. The Muslim girls in particular seem to be very spirited liars. Since the election, there have been vivid stories from across the nation of Trump supporters tearing off ...
The world desperately needs more exorcists
Post Date: 2016-12-28 17:34:33 by cranky
A New York woman who levitated six inches off the ground, mysteriously spoke in foreign languages and demonstrated paranormal powers made medical history in 2008 because a panel of doctors from New York Medical College agreed she was possessed by the devil. In presenting the case of Julia in the New Oxford Review, board certified psychiatrist Dr. Richard Gallagher cautioned that religious practitioners should be on alert for what he called a rapidly growing worldwide phenomenon. Gallaghers warning was on point, say exorcists, who claim there are now so many devils out there, the Vatican cant recruit enough exorcists to chase them away. Father Vincent ...

Post Date: 2016-11-24 02:22:24 by redleghunter
Israeli archaeologists on Thursday presented new details of what they said were the first tiny artifacts, unearthed in situ on the Temple Mount, ever conclusively dated to the time of the First Temple over 2,600 years ago. The discoveries were made during limited scientific excavations carried out atop the flashpoint Temple Mount in the past decade, the first of their kind since the British Mandate. The highly sensitive Israeli excavations were conducted with minimum publicity in cooperation with the Islamic Waqf which manages the incendiary holy site. The artifacts excavated from the mount, detailed in a paper and presentations at a conference at Hebrew University, are said to include ...

Exclusive: Christ's Burial Place Exposed for First Time in Centuries
Post Date: 2016-10-27 15:06:50 by redleghunter
Jerusalem, IsraelFor the first time in centuries, scientists have exposed the original surface of what is traditionally considered the tomb of Jesus Christ. Located in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City of Jerusalem, the tomb has been covered by marble cladding since at least 1555 A.D., and most likely centuries earlier. "The marble covering of the tomb has been pulled back, and we were surprised by the amount of fill material beneath it, said Fredrik Hiebert, archaeologist-in-residence at the National Geographic Society, a partner in the restoration project. It will be a long scientific analysis, but we will finally be able to see the original rock ...

Digital imaging brings biblical text to light
Post Date: 2016-10-03 16:57:38 by redleghunter
Nearly half a century ago, archaeologists found a charred ancient scroll in the ark of a synagogue on the western shore of the Dead Sea. The lump of carbonized parchment could not be opened or read. Its curators did nothing but conserve it, hoping that new technology might one day emerge to make the scroll legible. Just such a technology has been perfected by computer scientists at the University of Kentucky. Working with biblical scholars in Jerusalem, they have used a computer to unfurl a digital image of the scroll. It turns out to hold a fragment identical to the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible and, at nearly 2,000 years old, is the earliest instance of the text. The writing ...
What Do Jennifer Rubin and Brett Stephens Have Against “Nativism”?–Oh, Wait…
Post Date: 2016-09-25 10:39:05 by nativist nationalist
Im not an anti-Semite; I never have been; and I dont have much time for anti-Semites. Ive written a couple of million words of opinion commentary this past thirty years, all of it archived on my website, and I defy you to find any evidence of anti-Semitism in it anywhere. However, Ive turned against the word philosemite, for reasons Ive explained elsewhere. Basically, its patronizing. If pressed on the issue, I call myself an anti-anti-Semite. I cherish my Jewish friends, and I have publiclyand again, I think, more than onceexpressed gratitude in print for the positive contribution Jews have made to our civilization, way out of ...
Marijuana Missionaries: First Cannabis Church Rolls Into Michigan
Post Date: 2016-09-20 11:31:41 by Willie Green
Theres no religious dogma in this church, but these marijuana missionaries are intent in on bringing ostracized stoners back into the fold. Congregants in this church arent high on Jesus. In fact, the very name of the church sounds like lyrics from a rock and (ahem) roll song or the backdrop for a classic Cheech and Chong movie. Its true that First Cannabis Church of Logic and Reasons sacrament might be a doobie or marijuana-infused brownie instead of the body and blood of Christ, and its dogma is steeped in giving thanks to the cannabis plant for its healing nature and the sense of well-being it gives users instead of Jesus sacrifices for sinners. The church, ...

Christian Thinkers Blast Theologian Wayne Grudem for Defense of Donald Trump as 'Morally Good Choice'
Post Date: 2016-08-09 10:48:13 by Willie Green
Several notable Christian and conservative commentators are pushing back against renowned theologian Wayne Grudem, whose 5,300-word defense of Donald Trump has gone viral, with some saying the move justifies a "wicked deed."Because of the theological weight Grudem carries in the evangelical world he is a professor of theology and biblical studies at Phoenix Seminary and served as the general editor of the English Standard Version Study Bible some see this as particularly egregious in light of the Republican presidential nominee's public mockery of a Muslim family whose son was killed in combat in Iraq.Responses have been numerous and strongly-worded.In an ...

Pope Francis: ‘If I Speak of Islamic Violence, I Must Speak of Catholic Violence’
Post Date: 2016-08-01 09:26:54 by cranky
In a press conference Sunday, Pope Francis appeared to suggest that all religions are equally prone to violence and that Islam and Christianity are the same in this regard. When asked by a journalist about the barbarous assassination of Fr. Jacques Hamel in northern France who was clearly killed in the name of Islam last Tuesday, the Pope replied that he doesnt like speaking about Islamic violence because there is plenty of Christian violence as well. In the brief press conference aboard the papal plane returning from Krakow, Poland, the Pope said that every day when he browses the newspapers, he sees violence in Italy perpetrated by Christians: this ...
Donald Trump, Man of Faith
Post Date: 2016-07-07 18:20:03 by ConservingFreedom
[...] In his late twenties, Trump began attending Marble Collegiate Church on Fifth Avenue. Founded in 1628 in the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, Marble Collegiate is one of the few institutions that survives from the citys founding. Peter Minuit, the governor of New Amsterdam, was the first church elder, and Peter Stuyvesant, the colonys director general, led worshippers to service every Sunday. The high steeple of its current home, erected in 1854, rises two hundred feet above the pavement, a symbol of uprightness set in stone. Here Trump walked down the aisle after exchanging vows with Ivana and heard the sermons of Norman Vincent Peale, a man whose philosophy would become ...
Christianity Can’t Be Stretched To Endorse Homosexuality
Post Date: 2016-07-07 01:51:53 by redleghunter
In light of the Orlando massacre, The New York Times published a forum of evangelicals writing on the question, Have Christians Created a Harmful Atmosphere for Gays? Two noted evangelical leaders, popular blogger Julie Rodgers and professor David Gushee, represented the yes perspective. Remarkably, they both hold that kindness and sincere friendship toward same- sex-attracted persons is not enough. Failing to affirm their sexuality does them harm, contributing in measure to demonic actions like Orlando. They call on Christians to repent. Rodgers admits The Christians I know were grieved by the massacre and they want to know how to help. But she followed ...
Christian Mingle must let LGBT singles use dating site after losing court battle

God-loving gay singles have won the right to mingle on the world's most popular Christian dating site and every other faith-based matchmaking network owned by its parent company, following a California court ruling. Spark Networks, which owns ChristianMingle, JDate, and LDSSingles.com ("the largest dating site by Mormons for Mormons"), first came under legal fire in 2013 after two gay men noticed that new members could only search for dates of the opposite sex. In filing a class-action lawsuit, the men alleged that Spark was breaking California anti-discrimination laws by making it impossible for members of ...
Made in our image: The appeal of 'moderate Muslims
Post Date: 2016-07-03 11:26:46 by Stoner
One of the greatest problems with the much cherished moderate/radical Muslim dichotomy is that its entirely based on Western assumptions that have nothing to do with the realities of Islam. This came out in a study published in Arabic (my recent translation here): Islamic researchers are agreed that what the West and its followers call moderate Islam and moderate Muslims is simply a slur against Islam and Muslims, a distortion of Islam, a rift among Muslims, a spark to ignite war among them. They also see that the division of Islam into moderate Islam and radical Islam has no basis in Islam -- neither in its doctrines and ...
