The Rev. Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritans Purse, says the government's attacks against Christianity and bans on traditional Christmas themes while society glorifies sin is "like little children shaking their fist at Almighty God."
"What's happening is we're glorifying sin, we're lifting up sin. And it's like little children shaking their fist at Almighty God," Graham told Fox News host Megyn Kelly during a Wednesday segment of "The Kelly File."
Speaking about atheists and secularists' actions to ban celebrations of Christmas in schools and government buildings, Kelly commented on American Atheists' "skip church" billboard ad campaign, which The Christian Post has reported on. She also cited the city of Pittsburg's previous plan to rename the Christmas holidays "sparkle days" and the ban on poinsettias at a Minnesota court house, among others. more >>

This year Santa decided to fly coach and give out presents to sick children all around the world. You get a firsthand look at how he travels to each place and all the joy he brings to each and every person.
As part of a holiday promotion for Expedia, travelers donate their points earned to St. Jude Children's Hospital. Then this jolly good fellow takes the skies to deliver presents! Obviously, more people tend to rack their points up during the holiday months than any other season. In only 50 hours Santa was able to travel to Dublin, Paris, Dubai, Tokyo, Honolulu, Paris, and NYC before ending up in Memphis.
His trip totaled 19,602 miles and it is only the start of the journey! Also paying a visit to the sick children at St. Jude's. The SMILE on the children's faces made every second of this trip worth it for him. more >>
A church in Alma, Arkansas has responded with "love and support" to the American Atheists holiday "skip church" billboards by putting up its own ad, welcoming doubters and those who have questions about faith.
"Our goal is not to oppose their message, but rather to respond with love and support. We actually welcome their desire to support those who have felt alienated by believers and start discussion between and among the Atheist and Christian communities," Grace Church wrote on its website, referring to American Atheists' recently erected billboards in several Bible Belt cities.
The new ad reads, "Questions, Doubts, Curiosity? All welcome at Grace," and runs on the same digital billboard as the AA ad in Springdale, Arkansas. more >>
In years past, atheists have put up billboards in places like New York City to discourage people from attending church at Christmas time (or any time, for that matter). Now they're bringing their campaign to the Bible belt.
A report from their own source notes: "The billboards feature a young girl writing a letter to Santa; her letter reads, 'Dear Santa, All I want for Christmas is to skip church! I'm too old for fairy tales.' The billboards are located in Memphis; Nashville, St. Louis; and Ft. Smith, Arkansas."
Of course, the premise of this whole campaign is that Christianity is supposedly a "fairy tale." But, in fact, Jesus is "the Truth." Here I'll focus only on prophecies fulfilled by Jesus. Only God knows the future. Only God could have written the Bible. more >>
Drivers in Lowell, Michigan received a Christmas surprise when they were pulled over for "routine" police stops … they received exactly what they would have asked Santa Claus for, thanks to the work of police officers and UP TV.
The popular TV network, which promotes "uplifting" and "inspiring" programming, sought to do something a little different for people in the small town. They enlisted the help of the Lowell police force and officer Scot VanSolkema, who was responsible for pulling unsuspecting drivers over. When he asked the drivers what they wanted for Christmas, or for their children, many were hesitant to respond, but eventually they revealed their wishes. That's when VanSolkema, and the rest of the force, sprang into action to quickly retrieve the specified gift and get it to the driver.
Over the course of two days, the officers worked in conjunction with UP TV networks and creator Rob Bliss to make these things happen for an unknown number of people. However, what is known is that the network spent between $7,000 and $10,000 on the gifts, which included items such as an Xbox and Hi-Def TVs. more >>
