We should take notice when self-professed atheist billionaire and globalist profiteer, George Soros, is the quiet funder of a curious "Evangelical Immigration Table" campaign to promote yet another massive and mysterious piece of legislation in Congress. This time it is the "Gang of 8" Schumer-Rubio immigration bill (S. 744).
Through the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), a project of the Soros-funded National Immigration Forum (NIF), progressive activists such as Sojourners founder, Jim Wallis, are well-funded to lobby for the Gang of 8 legislation that would almost immediately legalize about 11 million immigrants first, with promises of better law enforcement later.
Another 20 million immigrants, mostly family members, are likely to follow within ten years. A $250,000 national radio campaign by the Table features several evangelical leaders reading from Matthew 25, "I was a stranger, and you welcomed me ..." more >>
A three-judge panel from an appellate court decided to throw out a lawsuit against Arizona's "Day of Prayer" proclamations over the belief that the plaintiffs lacked standing.
Judges from the Arizona Court of Appeals Division One unanimously concluded Tuesday that the suit advanced by the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation was invalid.
Writing for the panel, Judge Donn Kessler said the offended party could not show how they were specifically harmed by the Day of Prayer Proclamations issued by Governor Jan Brewer. more >>
HOUSTON – Instead of business as usual at the Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting held today and Wednesday, SBC President Fred Luter said he is hoping the meeting will spark a revival in the United States.
"We will have our first evening service in several years; but not just an ordinary service," Luter wrote in a letter to attendees prior to the conference. "Tuesday night will be an old-fashioned revival service! No business, other than doing business with God! No reports, no resolutions, no announcements, just dynamic music led by the gifted and talented Charles Billingsley, followed by the president's sermon."
Yes, the issues of SBC church's ties to the Boy Scouts of America, differences of opinion on Calvinism, and religious liberty are planned for discussion. However, the special session set for Tuesday evening at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, where the two-day meeting is held, is designed to set the tone for something more. more >>
A spokesman for the public school district where a student recently decided to recite the Lord's Prayer instead of give a planned graduation speech has stated that students' rights should not be restricted.
On June 1, Liberty High School valedictorian Roy Costner IV ripped up his pre-approved speech and chose to deliver a speech that included the Lord's Prayer at his graduation ceremony. John Eby, public information specialist for the School District of Pickens County, S.C., told The Christian Post that a student's right to religious expression cannot be restricted.
"We also cannot pre-approve a message from the school – whether delivered by a student or a staff member – that endorses a religion," said Eby. more >>
If a city includes a nativity scene in its holiday display, must it also include a sign mocking the Christmas story as a toxic myth? If the scene has an angel, must it have a devil, too?
Raising these strange questions is a new strategy adopted by militant atheist organizations like Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF). These groups-not content to practice their atheism privately-seek to scour public life of all religious references: nativity scenes, "Under God," Ten Commandment monuments, and the like.
Their most recent approach is to argue that, if there are to be any religious messages in the public square, then there must be equal space for their anti-religious messages. more >>
There is an unfortunate reality sweeping across America. Homosexuals' "civil rights" are considered to be legally greater than a Christian's claim to religious liberty. As a result of exercising their faith, Christians are being punished legally and financially. Christians are called "bigots" for maintaining their convictions and their faith is marginalized, minimized, and mocked because they believe in the biblical view of marriage.
At stake is whether or not Christians will risk losing their livelihood and/or pay hefty fines for holding fast to their religious beliefs.
Consider the plight of bakers, photographers, florists and property owners, who are being sued and ostracized because of their faith. more >>
