The pattern is now completely predictable: Gay activists and their allies overplay their hand, and the liberal media says, "Well done! We fully support your intolerance."
Last week, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed fired Kelvin Cochran, the city's fire chief with 30 years of service behind him. As the mayor's statements made abundantly clear – and as we documented in the article, The Mayor of Atlanta Declares War on Religious Freedom – Cochran was fired because of his biblical beliefs that homosexual practice was abhorrent in God's sight. (Cochran also spoke against fornication, with specific reference to heterosexual promiscuity, along with bestiality, pedophilia, and other sexual sins.)
The mayor's actions were so egregious (in keeping with the pattern of intolerance in the name of tolerance) that Christian leaders, both national and local, gathered in Atlanta on Tuesday to protest Cochran's dismissal. more >>
Before radical Islamic terrorists attacked the offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris last Wednesday, which left 12 people dead, including the publication's editor and four cartoonists, the controversial magazine had already sustained a firebomb attack by Muslims in 2011, and was sued 13 times by Catholic organizations for its offensive depictions of popes, Jesus Christ and the Holy Trinity.
The Catholic groups reportedly filed the lawsuits in reaction to several offensive covers that depict Christian figures, such as the Holy Trinity and Pope Benedict XVI, in compromising positions. One of the covers features an older man as God, a drawing of Jesus, and something that resembles the eye of horus meant to be the Holy Spirit, all engaged in sodomy. The drawing was intended to mock the Catholic Church's opposition to gay marriage.
Another cover features what appears to be Benedict XVI uttering the words "God doesn't exist! That turd! I had my doubts!" more >>
A Brazilian model's claims that her near-fatal plastic surgery nightmare was a "punishment" from God has raised biblical questions about cosmetic surgery and whether or not it is a sin.
Andressa Urach, widely known as "Miss BumBum" for having been a finalist in a 2012 competition of a similar name, was recently left fighting for her life when routine thigh injections went horribly wrong. The 27-year-old underwent the procedure at the Conceaicao Hospital in Porto Alegre last year in a bid to expand her thighs, however, she was hospitalized last month and almost lost her life after the chemical fillers began to rot her flesh, sending her body into septic shock.
As doctors fought to save her life, Urach, who works as a TV host in Brazil, says that she crossed over to the otherside and met God. Her near-death experience led her to the realization that she had been living a life of sin all in the name of "vanity" and she has since vowed to dedicate her life to warning others of the dangers of cosmetic surgery. more >>
It's been so cold in Birmingham, Alabama that they've had stuff shivering they didn't know could shake.
It was especially bitter on the afternoon of January 7th and a good many folks had taken a respite from the cold by grabbing lunch at the Chick-fil-A on Highway 280 in Inverness.
One of the diners who came in that day was a bit unkempt. He was wearing jeans and a hoodie – hardly the kind of clothing for a day like that. Most folks just figured he was a homeless fellow. more >>
French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is set to feature the Muslim prophet Mohammad holding the sign "Je suis Charlie" on the cover of its first edition since the terror attack on its offices last week that killed 12 people. Drawings of the Islamic holy figure are largely believed to be the reason why Muslim gunmen targeted the newspaper in the attack.
Reuters reported that the magazine is planning to print 3 million copies of Wednesday's edition, which is many times more than its regular run of 60,000 copies. Beside the drawing of Muhammad, the cover includes the text "Tout est pardonné," meaning "All is forgiven."
Two gunmen killed 12 cartoonists in the attack on Charlie Hebdo's offices last week, while 17 people in total died in related attacks across the city. The magazine has a history of publishing drawings of Muhammad, seen as offensive by many in the Islamic world, and has seen its offices firebombed in the past. more >>
A variety of voices are responding to HBO host Bill Maher's recent controversial comments that hundreds of millions of Muslim people supported the terror attacks in Paris last week that killed 17 people, and some conservatives have backed his views.
Maher, who in the past few months has made a series of comments critical to Islam, said in an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live that while he knows most Muslim people wouldn't have carried out an attack like the one in France, "hundreds of millions of them" supported the actions.
"They applaud an attack like this. What they say is, we don't approve of violence, but you know what, when you make fun of the prophet, all bets are off," Maher claimed. more >>
