One Million Moms, an organization founded by the American Family Association, has issued a call to action for parents about a new cartoon picked up by the Hub kids network that features a 12-year-old boy who uses a magic ring from his dead aunt and the key phrase "You go girl!" to become a crime-fighter female superhero named SheZow.
Calling Hub's airing of "SheZow" an "attempt by the gay, lesbian and transgender community to indoctrinate our children into accepting their lifestyles," OneMillionMoms.com's call to action declares:
"The media is determined to pollute the minds of our children and there is no better way to desensitize them than through a cartoon program. Everyone knows children are drawn to animated shows; both boys and girls love superheroes. This character especially will appeal to both boys and girls since the superhero represents both genders by cross dressing and being transgendered." more >>
A South African man is claiming to be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ, just a week after reports came out about a man in Australia with a similar claim.
"I will never die, as God gave me as a command," said Moses Hlongwane in an interview with eNews Channel Africa. The man, who lives in the northern KwaZulu-Natal town, has apparently attracted over a dozen followers, who are giving him money in hopes that his message will be spread around the world.
Hlongwane says that much like Jesus, he spent time in the wilderness, where he overcame Satan and was resurrected as the Son of God. more >>
Australian Alan John Miller, Miami-based José Luis de Jesús Miranda, Brazilian-born Inri Cristo, Russia's Sergey Anatolyevitch Torop and Wayne Bent, who is currently imprisoned in New Mexico – these are men from different parts of the world all claiming, like dozens long gone before them, to be Jesus Christ, God's Messiah and even in one case, both Christ and the end-times figure, the Antichrist.
Perry Noble, pastor of the nondenominational NewSpring Church in Anderson, S.C., told The Christian Post last week, when asked for his reaction to Miller's claim, that part of him could hardly believe it.
"But then part of me goes to Matthew 24 where Jesus said other people are going to come in my name claiming I am he," he added. "Then he basically says don't fall for it. Jesus says when he comes back, we'll know it." more >>
Same-sex marriage never will be widely accepted in America for a simple reason: It's based on a lie. But don't take my word on this; leading LGBT scholars and activists say as much.
Take Masha Gessen, acclaimed author and former Russian director of Radio Liberty. "Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there - because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change," Gessen said last year.
Last month, I was part of a debate at NYU Law School at which Judith Stacey, a sociology professor at the university, declared: "Children certainly do not need both a mother and a father." more >>
Pastor David Platt, founder of a Christian resource ministry named "Radical," announced that he will be doing a free live simulcast from the Middle East later this summer with a small group to help kick off churches and book study groups that will be following the curriculum from his book Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live.
The broadcast from the Middle East coincides with a trip by Platt to the region already planned for unrelated ministry work, Radical's executive director, Jim Warren, told The Christian Post on Wednesday. The hosting missions team organizers in the region asked that no specifics to the trip be disclosed to the media.
"I'm excited to share with you that on Wednesday, August 14, I'm going to gather together with a small group of brothers and sisters in the Middle East to dialogue about what it means to follow Christ – to die to ourselves and to live in Him," Platt, the pastor of The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Ala., wrote in his blog published Tuesday. "This dialogue will be simulcast live (and free) from the Middle East as a kick-off for many churches and small groups who will be walking through Follow Me in the fall." more >>
As 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan continues fighting for her life and hoping for an organ transplant that she desperately needs, critics are calling on Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to provide an exception to the law that prohibits her from being entered into a pool of adult candidates.
"Secretary Sebelius has only ordered a revision of the policy, which could take a lengthy amount of time – something Sarah does not have. To me, this shows lack of leadership and, certainly, lack of compassion," wrote Dr. Manny Alvarez, FOX News Channel's senior managing editor for Health News.
The young girl suffers from a condition called cystic fibrosis, and for the past three months has been confined to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, breathing with the support of a ventilator. She desperately needs a transplant and doctors have told her parents she only has three to five weeks left to live. more >>
