Lawsuit Claims Graveyard Cross is a Microaggression

peace cross In  our culture the story of Jesus dying on the cross has become representative of self-sacrifice. Lots of people don't believe in Jesus' deity, his resurrection, or the power of his death to have any role in God's forgiving sins. But they do see his death as a willing martyrdom. Lots of Christians have wanted to be buried, and have buried fellow Christians, in places with the symbol of the cross. Some of these Christians have fought and died defending the United States. These people have been Read more [...] Continue reading →

Councilwoman Resigns because of Christmas Tree

christmas tree As far as I can tell, Charlene Storey had no objection to the ceremonial lighting of a large evergreen tree that was decorated with many ornaments. But when the city council called it a Christmas Tree, she flipped out. NJ.com reports, "Roselle Park councilwoman quits over 'Christmas' tree lighting." Minutes after the council voted 4-2 Thursday night to change the name of the ceremony from A Tree Lighting to A Christmas Tree Lighting, the councilwoman-at-large, left the meeting. She later submitted Read more [...] Continue reading →

Student Who Refused to Deny God Calls School Board 'Liars'

atheist viewpoint Following up from our earlier post about a teacher who told students that God is a myth, here is Jordan Wooley's second confrontation with the Katy ISD school board: According to EAG News, “You tried to cover up the incident. You tried to twist your words to where it was hard to find the truth,” Jordan said from the podium, Fox 26 reports. “You called me a liar without using the word liar.” “If anything has been said that was wrong it was your words, not mine,” Wooley said. “You Read more [...] Continue reading →

Researchers Demagnetize God Right Out of Your Head

atheistFist A group of researchers have made the headline-grabbing claim that they can reduce belief in God with the application of magnetic coils to a patient's skull. Researchers at the University of York in York, England, say they used a technique used to treat depression, called transcranial magnetic stimulation, to alter Christians' beliefs in God and, oddly, opinions about immigration. The media being the way they are -- mostly anti-Christian -- it's the claim about God beliefs that are getting Read more [...] Continue reading →

NY Post: Mass Shooter Hunted Christians

chris harper mercer According to the New York Post, two witnesses say that the mass shooter hunted Christians, executing them while shooting to wound others. When I listened to the CNN news radio program there was some speculation as to whether the Umpqua Community College shooter (or shooters, it wasn’t certain that there was only one) was a terrorist. This raised the issue of whether or not it was possible that the attack was “domestic terrorism”—which was then identified with some kind of white supremacy Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Road to Moral Anarchy

crown The only way to pull us back from moral anarchy is to preach that Jesus is Lord. This past week our family has enjoyed berry picking. The wild raspberry harvest came in this week and they are delicious. When the sun strikes them they look like ruby jewels hanging in groups from the raspberry bushes. You can tell from the colors which are the ripest, a deep burgundy instead of candy apple red. Some of the fruit is so ripe when you simply touch it; it falls into your hand. Sometimes they are Read more [...] Continue reading →

New Movie on Dealing with Homosexual Culture

audacity A new movie used secular, pro-homosexual actors to portray a Christian message. Ray Comfort has a new film coming out, and the way he produced and cast it... I don't see how even he could have imagined what God was going to do. The film is a timely exploration of how Christians should respond in the midst of a world awash in pro-homosexual sentiment. The Westboro cult has it entirely wrong, and this presentation powerfully depicts how we should prepare ourselves to discuss the Gospel—no matter Read more [...] Continue reading →

The ACLU Finally Finds a Chief Executive Who Should Obey the Law

obamaPen Perhaps the ACLU might try to show us some commitment to principle? Or is that not possible? The ACLU is mad at the Oklahoma governor. According to Tulsa World, “Gov. Mary Fallin, monument unmoved by Supreme Court's Ten Commandments ruling.” Gov. Mary Fallin on Tuesday said the Ten Commandments monument will stay at the Capitol despite a court ruling that said it violated the state Constitution and must be removed. Fallin said Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has asked the Oklahoma Read more [...] Continue reading →

Atheist Gaia Believer Advises Pope on Climate

globalWarming Like I said, the pope's been listening to some bad advice. His recent encyclical preaching fear of global warming and promoting distribution of wealth and decreased use of energy as the "cure" is just a tragedy for the world. This is not just some guy shouting like Chicken Little from the rooftops; this is the pope saying the sky is falling. People -- hundreds of millions of people -- are going to trust he knows what he's talking about and follow him down the road of environmental terror in Read more [...] Continue reading →

Why Transgender Claims are Cowardly

bruce jenner wheaties detail The purpose of transgender claims is to deny and hide from reality. That is never brave. John Steigerwald asks at the Daily Caller, “Is What Bruce Jenner Did Courageous.” I think a better question would be, “Is there any purpose to ESPN or national sports in general other than to serve as regime propaganda?” Steigerwald doesn’t think Jenner was courageous compared to other athletes and I agree. But perhaps some will claim that what Jenner has done took more courage than competing Read more [...] Continue reading →
