While it is no secret that the so-called mainstream media habitually fails to report on the international phenomenon of Christian persecution, few are aware that they sometimes actively work to undermine the efforts of those who do expose it.
Consider a new report by the BBC titled Are there really 100,000 new Christian martyrs every year? by Ruth Alexander, who asks:
So how widespread is anti-Christian violence? more >>
Christians are certainly familiar with Jesus' words to the woman at the well. "Salvation is from the Jews," he tells her in John 4:22. And this has always stood as a stumbling block to anti-Semitism in the Church. It is hard to imagine how one can be a true Christian and be an anti-Semite, too.
But this wonderful phrase is also true in a worldly sense-and especially so in the nuclear age. In August 1939, Albert Einstein's letter warning President Roosevelt of Nazi capabilities in atomic weapons research was hand-carried to the White House. Having fled Hitler Germany for Princeton, Einstein was the world's most celebrated scientist and a leading member of the Jewish community. Calmly, FDR turned to his military aide, Gen. Edwin ("Pa") Watson and said: "Pa, this requires action." With those four words, Roosevelt commenced the greatest crash weapons program in history. Knowing that the U.S. was leading in this vital research area gave confidence to our diplomacy and our successful waging of the Second World War.
Admiral Hyman Rickover graduated from the Naval Academy and faced anti-Semitism throughout his career. Still, he pressed on to create the nuclear Navy. By his bulldog determination, Rickover gave America the means to withstand a Soviet nuclear first strike and still wipe out that evil empire. Knowing that Rickover's submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) could deliver a knockout blow-even if the continental U.S. had been destroyed--provided the balance in what Churchill called the balance of terror. more >>
There are four late-term abortionists remaining in the United States, and half of them practice their gruesome profession in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico.
It's there where boyfriends and parents often drag young women, halfway across the country, to end of the life of their child. On any given day, you can see the out-of-state license plates that fill the parking lot and perfectly detailed rental cars that have just come from the airport.
Because New Mexico is one of the few states left that allows abortion-on-demand up until the moment of birth, it's there were abortionist Curtis Boyd and his cronies kill viable babies (babies that if born down the street at the University of New Mexico's hospital would be given every chance to live). They use the infamous MOLD technique (Misoprostol, Oxytocin, Laminaria, and Digoxin), which injects a lethal dosage of digoxin into the baby's heart and then leaves the mother 3 to 4 days to carry her dead child inside of her until her body is ready for labor. And if she gives birth before making it back to the abortion facility? The "doctors" tell her to just sit on the toilet, call them, and not to look down. more >>
A new Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday shows President Obama at his lowest approval rating yet. Even women, a voting bloc central to his victory in 2012, have started to abandon him. Some female conservative leaders that The Christian Post spoke to believe this shift among women is due to the painful rollout of the Affordable Care Act, better known as "ObamaCare."
According to the poll, taken between November 6 and November 11, 54 percent of American voters disapprove of Obama's job as president, and only 39 percent approve. The rate among women is slightly better, at 51 percent and 40 percent, respectively. The poll showed a major shift from the slight disapproval (49 to 45 percent) expressed in October, beating what was previously Obama's worst month – October 2011 (55 to 41).
"His numbers right now are where George W. Bush's were at this time," Tim Malloy, assistant director of Quinnipiac's Polling Institute, told The Christian Post in an interview on Wednesday. In contrast, "Reagan and Clinton were far better off at the five year point." more >>
Editors Note: The agent referred to in the op-ed is Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service Agent who was assigned to the presidential details of former President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama. He is now retired from the Secret Service and is running for Congress in Maryland's 6th Congressional District.
One of the former Secret Service Agents who guarded President Obama stated last week something many are starting to realize: It's worse than people know. This man has been privy to the most in-depth conversations in the Oval Office and shudders at what he has heard. To this statement, he added, "I'm not trying to scare you either."
Billy Graham just turned 95 and in his final sermon revealed something sobering and sad. "I've wept for America," he said. Recognizing that America is imploding, Graham tried to offer hope by pointing people back to the cross through repentance and faith. more >>
That the socialist French government of François Hollande just blocked a bad deal with Tehran, emerging as the hero of the Geneva negotiations, is on one level a huge surprise. But it also follows logically from the passivity of the Obama administration.
American foreign policy is in unprecedented free-fall, with a feckless and distracted White House barely paying attention to the outside world, and when it does, acting in an inconsistent, weak, and fantastical manner. If one were to discern something so grand as an Obama Doctrine, it would read: "Snub friends, coddle opponents, devalue American interests, seek consensus, and act unpredictably."
Along with many other critics, I rue this state of affairs. But the French action demonstrates that it does have a silver lining. more >>
