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 >>

NEW YORK — President Barack Obama, lashing out at Republican-led efforts to strengthen voter ID requirements, poked fun at critics who have hounded him since the start of his first term about his birth certificate and the validity of his office.
While suggesting that "folks may learn that without a document like a passport or a birth certificate [that] they can't register," Obama recalled Friday at the National Action Network's 2014 convention at the Sheraton Times Square hotel the controversies he faced over his own birth certificate.

Louisiana is a step closer to making the Holy Bible its official state book after the House Committee approved the legislation this week, now sending the bill to a full vote in the House of Representatives.

Thomas Carmody (R-Shreveport), argues that the purpose of the bill is not to establish an official religion in the state, but rather to reflect America's history and founding principles as outlined by the country's Founding Fathers.
