Anti-Christian graffiti written in Hebrew was found at the scene of a Greek Orthodox seminary arson near Jerusalem's Old City on Thursday.
No one was injured during the fire, according to police, who believe the blaze was contained in the bathroom of the seminary.
The slogans written in Hebrew were found in the same area and read "Jesus is a son of a whore" and "Redemption of Zion." The fire reportedly started around 4 a.m. that night. more >>
American Center for Law and Justice Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow has asked "how many more Christians must be murdered" at the hands of terror group ISIS before President Barack Obama decides to take specific action to stop the slaughter.
"It is unacceptable for President Obama, the West and the United Nations to stand idly by and watch the systematic elimination of Christians by radical Islamists," Sekulow said.
"How many more Christians must be murdered because of their religious beliefs? Without a specific strategy to eliminate this evil, ISIS remains emboldened and continues to use these tragic events to recruit more radical jihadists. It is clear ISIS intends to continue to target and execute Christians. It is time for President Obama to exercise leadership — to assemble a global coalition — and put an effective strategy into action to stop the slaughter of Christians, to put an end to this jihadist war against Christians." more >>
WASHINGTON — Before the Intelligence Squared debate held at George Washington University, only one in three audience members said they agreed that liberals are stifling intellectual diversity at colleges and universities, but after hearing both sides of the debate, almost three-fifths of the audience was convinced that liberals are stifling intellectual diversity.
As many as 54 percent of Republicans have said in a survey that they believe President Barack Obama "deep down" is a Muslim, and only 9 percent trust that he's really a Christian.
Alex Theodoridis, an assistant professor of political science at the University of California, Merced, described the results as "staggering" in an article for The Washington Post on Wednesday.
The direct question asked was "Which of these do you think most likely describes what Obama believes deep down? Muslim, Christian, atheist, spiritual, or I don't know." more >>
All men sail through life's rough waters, what shipwrecks some empowers others. Undying perseverance and a devotion to a higher calling belong to those who survive. Heroes they are, though that is not what we call them initially. England's King George VI, for example, was depicted by the press of his day as a drab and timid man with a crippling stutter whose determination and untiring devotion left him bruised and battered, but undeniably heroic.
Rising to kingship unwillingly and on the wings of scandal, he struggled with every public word he uttered. His infamous September 3, 1939 prelude to war speech, which can be heard in all its crackly splendor online, opens with: "In this grave hour, perhaps the most fateful in our history, I send this message to all my peoples [sic]…with the same depth of feeling for each one of you as if I were able to cross your threshold and speak to you myself."
Each consciously calculated word enunciated, between far too many pauses and near-stammers, warned beloved countrymen of a clear and present danger should Nazism prevail. His brother, King Edward VIII, who had previously abdicated the throne to pursue personal passions, could have said it prettier. But not better. You see, a fine-tuned heart can see and hear what is invisible to the eyes and ears. Substance versus style. more >>
Real estate Tycoon Donald Trump said Wednesday that he's "more serious" about running for president in 2016.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Trump, who publicly toyed with the idea of a presidential bid in 2012, said he feels compelled to run because the nation needs him.
"Everybody feels I'm doing this just to have fun or because it's good for the brand," Trump reportedly told the Post yesterday. "Well, it's not fun. I'm not doing this for enjoyment. I'm doing this because the country is in serious trouble." more >>
