The public career beheading of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich at the hands of pagan sexual jihadists, coupled with an escalating epidemic of Christian business owners facing harsh government persecution for merely living out their faith, has startled awake an America lulled to sleep by the left's intentionally deceptive, yet oh-so-sweet sounding serenade of "equality, tolerance and diversity."
Average folks have finally begun to recognize that America's "progressive" power class of cultural Marxists and left-wing statists really intends, and always has, to subjugate ideological dissenters through abject inequality and intolerance, while demanding blind obedience to an anti-Christian, sexually anarchist sociopolitical agenda.
The goals of these homosexualists were clearly defined decades ago. Still, for any goal to be successfully attained, clever stratagem and sound methodology must be diligently applied. more >>
For Jews and Christians, the Passover season is a special time for reflection on the rich spiritual truths contained within this remarkable holiday. Indeed, we can all observe the command to "remember" the incredible Israelite deliverance from bondage in Egypt.
For Christians, the events of a momentous Passover some 15 centuries later have given added meaning to this holiday, so that the truths of the first are reinforced in the latter. Deliverance from Pharaoh's taskmasters became freedom from slavery to sin. The blood of a lamb on the doorposts became a typology of Christ's sacrifice on the cross.
Yet the parallels between Pesach and Easter were lost for centuries to most Christians when the early Church fathers deliberately severed our faith from its Jewish roots. In time, this hostility to Judaism produced vicious blood libels against Jews at Passover. more >>
The Bible is apparently losing its in influence in American culture, according to a new State of the Bible survey.
The study was conducted by the Barna group and American Bible Society and the outcome pointed to a nation that takes a book once held sacred in a casual manner viewing it more as a guidebook.
One of the most alarming statistics showed that 19 percent of American adults are skeptical about the Bible while another 19 percent are "engaged" with it. This marks that first time that the number of skeptics and readers are dead even. The number of skeptics has grown 10 percent since 2011. This shift can be attributed to groups of younger adults including those belonging to generation X and the Millennial generation holding a less sacred view of the book. more >>
It's almost Easter, but an incident that occurred just before Valentine's Day crossed by desk - and it's got me fired up.
A little boy cried after a Nazareth, Penn. teacher confiscated his Valentine's Day cards because they contained religious messages and a Bible verse about Jesus, a lawsuit filed this week in federal court alleges.
NEW YORK — The Rev. Elaine Flake, who leads along with husband, the Rev. Floyd Flake, the 23,000-member Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York, has expressed shock over abortion statistics recently revealed about black women in New York City.
"I saw that article about a month ago, someone forwarded it to me via email and I was devastated," Flake told The Christian Post. "I thought those statistics were just outrageous, and wondered if they were true. But if they are, it's something that I think we have to deal with as a church. As the African American community we have to educate our people a little bit better. I think we just have to be determined that we're going to deal with some of these issues."
As CP has reported, citing the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene: "Black women in New York City aborted more than half of their pregnancies in 2012, topping the number of abortions recorded by women of every other racial or ethnic group in the city." The report revealed that more than any other ethnic group in NYC, black women were the leading abortion patients and also had the highest pregnancy and miscarriage rates. more >>
A new court ruling has determined that churches can no longer rent public school facilities. Churches in New York City can be evicted from the schools. Despite the good they do in the community, they could be out in the cold.
Writing for Facts & Trends, Bob Smietana observes, "The 2-1 ruling from the Second Circuit Court is the latest twist in a long-running legal battle between the Bronx Household of Faith and the Board of Education of the City of New York."
Indeed, this is not new. This is the latest decision in an on-going battle that the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has been fighting for years. In fact, I can remember interviewing Rev. Bob Hall, the church's founding pastor, as far back as the 1990s on this case for a religious freedom TV special, hosted by the late Dr. D. James Kennedy. more >>
