    The Saudi teen remains in real and terrible danger because she has renounced Islam. Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun, a Saudi teenager, has just tried to save her own life—and in so doing, has risked death for shaming her family and her country.  Rahaf fled her family vacation in Kuwait, took a plane to Bangkok, barricaded herself in her hotel room at the airport and began posting about her plight on social media.  She demanded political asylum. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. In this case, the ammunition is digital and governmental. Via her smartphone, Rahaf claimed that she had renounced Islam...
  • Are Democrats Testing a Future Strategy against Amy Coney Barrett?

    One way to understand the Democratic opposition to the judicial nomination of Brian Buescher over his membership in the Catholic group the Knights of Columbus is as a test run in preventing their worst nightmare: the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Democratic senators Kamala Harris (Calif.) and Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) targeted Buescher during his confirmation hearing and in written questions late last year, suggesting that his Catholic beliefs would lead him to rule against abortion rights, as well as that his membership in the Knights could be enough to disqualify him from serving as a...

    Mecca's grand mosque in Saudi Arabia was hit with a plague of biblical proportions this week when a huge swarm of locusts descended upon the Islamic holy site. A number of videos were uploaded online showing locusts creeping around the Islamic pilgrimage hub, crawling their way across the stone slabs, providing a small snapshot of what Pharaoh saw during the Passover thousands of years ago.

    Full title: Huntington Beach family sues school district over students’ right to hand out fliers promoting Bring Your Bible to School Day HUNTINGTON BEACH — A Los Angeles-based conservative Christian group has filed a federal lawsuit against the Huntington Beach City School District on behalf of two children, alleging they were unlawfully prohibited from distributing fliers promoting Bring Your Bible to School Day. The lawsuit, filed Monday, Jan. 7 by Freedom X in United States District Court in Santa Ana, alleges that the school district violated the First Amendment rights of Micah Bausch, 10, and Nieka Bausch, 8, by curtailing...

    Tenochtitlan was an absolutely amazing city. The city was larger than any in Europe at the time and held approximately 200,000 people with some estimates as high as 350,000. Built over 100 years or so on Lake Texcoco, the city was impressively organized. Being built on the lake meant that land platforms were created as needed in an orderly fashion leaving clean canal streets for canoe traffic and multiple bridges and paths for pedestrians. Each neighborhood was distinct and had its required services from schools to garbage collectors. The city also had fabulous amenities befitting a great city. Huge gardens...

    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 The cult of Marxism has to get stronger and more stringent for people to do what is against their own good. We have an economy which is getting better by the day and people still want to turn back to the economic malaise of Barack Hussein thanks to the worship of Global Warming. You see it especially well in the media as each and every talking head tries to outdo each other as they preach their...
  • Swedish State TV: Virgin Mary cloned herself, and Jesus was transgender

    12/27/2018 4:42:47 PM PST · by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis · 22 replies
    The birth of Jesus, which is celebrated on Christmas Day, occurred without his having a biological father. State owned SVT, however, has solved the mystery of the virgin birth. Jesus or Virgin Mary may have been transsexual, they reason. Was Jesus born as a girl? SVT asks and believes they have found support for that theory in science. SVT’s claim is not the Biblical account of the virgin birth, but that Mary became pregnant with Joseph or someone else. But the highly biased, left-wing channel has launched a more gender-modern theory: A phenomenon known as parthenogenesis. It occurs among algae,...

    What is happening in China? Why is Chinese leader Xi Jinping, raging against religion, including Buddhism, Islam, and especially Christianity? Psalm 2 poses the question rhetorically, in the context of what has proven to be a historic phenomenon: Why are the nations in an uproar (a rage) And the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying ‘Let us tear their fetters apart And cast away their cords from us!’ From Nero to Lenin and Stalin, Hitler, the Kims of North...

    Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the socialist darling from New York, never seems to take a break from political gaffes, even on Christmas. Instead, she used the day to push the false notion that Jesus was a refugee. Joy to the World! Merry Christmas everyone - here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. ??(Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) December 25, 2018 For all the anti-immigrant pundits uncomfortable with and denying that Christ’s family were refugees, too:— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) December 25, 2018 It wasn't long before conservatives tore into...

    The ugly specter of religious bigotry reared its disgusting head during Senate confirmation of the nomination of Brian Buescher for a federal judgeship. The Constitution’s Article VI, Clause 3 clearly specifies that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States,” but that must be news to Senators Mazie Hirono and Kamala Harris. Ed Condon of the Catholic News Agency reports:  A judicial nominee faced questions from Senators this month about whether membership in the Knights of Columbus might impede his ability to judge federal cases fairly.

    Basketball star LeBron James has apologised after sharing a lyric about "Jewish money" on social media - saying he thought it was a compliment. James was called out over the lyric - which comes from a song by US rapper 21 Savage - after he shared it with his 45.8m followers on Instagram. But James said it was not his intent "to hurt anyone" with Saturday's post. "Apologies, for sure, if I offended anyone," he told sports channel ESPN on Sunday. "That's not why I chose to share that lyric. I always [post lyrics]. That's what I do. I ride...

    Witchcraft is thriving in the US, with an estimated 1.5 million Americans now identifying as witches - more than the total number of Presbyterians. As Christianity declines across the country, paganism has swung to the mainstream, with witchcraft paraphernalia for sale on every high street and practises normalised across popular culture. In the past two years, it has also become darkly politicised. Dakota Bracciale, a 29-year-old transgender/queer witch and co-owner of Catland Books and witch shop in Brooklyn, is pleased with the outcome of the ritual hex placed on US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in October. The curse, carried...

According to the version which was circulated on Monday, the priest said: 'I think that we must not call what is bad good, what is wrong right. 'Because we are Christians, we must say what we...

    God’s Name Will Not be Mentioned By Philip Cottraux I personally think there’s no such thing as an atheist. Deep down inside, everyone knows there’s a God. Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness (Romans 2:15). The reality is they don’t believe He doesn’t exist; they hate Him. The war against everything related to God, the intense hatred of all religion, and the burning desire to scrub any mention of His name from society betrays their true feelings. The murky reference to “separation of church and state” is a thinly-veiled false...

    “Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11) The gospel was always and ever meant to be good news. It tells us who God is and how we can be saved. For many, the modern gospel has become a fear-based method of behavior control and doubt and jumping through hoops, just in case the “how” didn’t work, or in...

    Weakening of the family generally occurs in an environment of weakening of religion. As France is gripped by civil disorder, many commentators identify, quite correctly, as the culprit the outsized burden that France's bloated welfare state places on its citizens. According a recent report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the highest tax burden in the industrialized world is in France — 46.1 percent of GDP. In the United States, it is 27 percent, which includes taxes paid at all levels of government — federal, state and local. Welfare state spending in France is 32 percent of GDP,...

    Everyone has a religion. It is, in fact, impossible not to have a religion if you are a human being. It’s in our genes and has expressed itself in every culture, in every age, including our own secularized husk of a society. By religion, I mean something quite specific: a practice not a theory; a way of life that gives meaning, a meaning that cannot really be defended without recourse to some transcendent value, undying “Truth” or God (or gods). Which is to say, even today’s atheists are expressing an attenuated form of religion. Their denial of any God is...

    David Attenborough’s climate change fearmongering makes him look a fool"by Andrew Bolt column in the Daily Telegraph (Australia) 5 Dec 2018 It’s embarrassing to see Sir David Attenborough make such a fool of himself after decades of brilliant filmmaking. Organisers of this week’s United Nations’ global warming conference, in Poland, asked the documentary superstar to make a speech that would wake the dead. And he gave it his best shot, trying to sound like an Old Testament prophet but so overdoing the fearmongering that he seemed deranged. “Right now, we are facing a man-made disaster of global scale,” he thundered....

    Love for one’s people is as natural as love for one’s family. No one can be faulted for this love, only respected. After all, no matter how much the modern world whirls and jerks about, we still aim to keep intact our family, and we hold it in special regard, suffused with sympathy. A nation is a family, too, except an order of magnitude higher in numbers. It is bound by unique internal ties: a common language, a common cultural tradition, a shared historical memory, and a shared set of problems to resolve in the future.
