A Tennessee lawmaker has written a letter to state county clerks telling them that they should ignore the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling legalizing gay marriage.
State Representative Rick Womick of the 34th Legislative District sent a letter last Wednesday to county clerks who had been told to issue licenses to same-sex couples by the state government.
"It has come to my attention that most, if not all of you, have been contacted by AG Herbert Slatery and the Haslam Administration, and have been told to uphold the SCOTUS opinion or face a discrimination lawsuit," wrote Womick. more >>
Roman Catholics and Protestants in the Chinese province of Zhejiang have launched a campaign aimed at making crosses and carrying them everywhere in response to the Communist government's continued crackdown on churches.
Asia News reported on Tuesday that the campaign, seeking to protest against the government in a legal and peaceful manner, has been met with great success.
Chinese Christians have been posting pictures on social media of crosses erected at their homes, while priests have called on churches across the nation to "join the rally" and show the government that Christians are united in protecting the holy symbol of the cross. more >>
The New York City Uber story unmasks the reality of the Democrats: politicians beholden not to the citizens' best interests, but to their own. If your city makes it hard for Uber to do business, you have corrupt or corruptible politicians.
Until he was embarrassed by universal outrage and Tweets from Aston Kucher to Kate Upton, uber-liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio nefariously tried to regulate Uber cars out of New York City. He took $550,000 in donations from the monopoly cab companies to spare them competition. He even put the head of his taxi campaign fundraising in charge of regulating taxis, which include Uber, confirming that the top priority of liberal Democrats is using their regulatory powers to serve themselves and their donors, not consumers.
De Blasio touches all the leftist bases. He married a black lesbian. She is reportedly no longer a lesbian but, suspiciously, she still drives a Subaru. They have a son who, unlike Obama's lament, actually does "look like Trayvon." De Blasio said he warned his son not to trust New York cops. But you know who he should warn his son about? Slime balls that sell drugs and kill cops. more >>
There is a reason the church in America has lost ground in recent years.
It is not because of our stand for morality and righteousness, although our hypocrisy has greatly damaged our credibility and lessened our authority.
It is not because of our claim that salvation comes through Jesus alone, although our failure to live out the radical implications of that claim has blunted the force of our message. more >>
"I fear the day when technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots." - Albert Einstein
In my study I have a giant poster of one of my heroes, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One of his famous quotes is the following: "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
Today, I believe many people are being silenced having reached a breaking point. Because of distraction with electronic gadgets, a reluctance to stay engaged on unpopular issues, plus experiencing what seems like an avalanche of negative developments in our culture, many people are disconnecting or distancing themselves from news. They're feeling disillusioned, discouraged and depressed. I personally battle these very things. more >>
A Christian student at the University of Cape Town was forced out of her position at the institution after she posted a message on Facebook deemed "anti-gay marriage."
Commenting on the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges that struck down all state-level gay marriage bans, Zizipho Pae, an economics and statistics major, was forced out of the Student Representative Council last week because she accused society of "normalizing sin."
After a meeting that included heated arguments, the university's student council voted 7 to 1 in favor of a motion to immediately remove Pae from her position, according to minutes posted online by the student group. more >>
