Councilwoman Resigns because of 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 […]

The Coming Division between Christ and Family

While Americans have thought that Christ and family go together, the age of “family values” may be ending. Be prepared! For many generations Christians or converts to Christianity in the West (Europe & America) did not have to sacrifice much. The reason was Western Christendom. Most of society was built on Christian laws and operated under a Christian ethic. If someone  got saved at a revival meeting they went out into a world that, for the most part, approved of their conversion and the Read more […]

Are Youth in America becoming Un-American?

Youth in America are the key to the future. Thus, they are the main target of secularists. On my travels throughout this great nation, I have the privilege to speak to youth in public or private schools and occasionally churches.  Last week while touring in Iowa I had the chance to address a mixed crowd that included a high school church youth group.  My first thought when speaking to youth is, Awesome, I can teach and equip these kids with what they need to stand against the secularists Read more […]

Walmart Greeter Allowed to Bless Again

A Walmart greeter had been barred from saying, “Have a blessed day,” based on one complaint. This story isn’t about politics in the narrow sense, but it demonstrates some problems in our culture in expectation inculcated into us by the media. According to WSBTV, it only took one complaint for Walmart to ban a greeter from wishing customers to “have a blessed day,” though James Phillips had been doing so for years without any objection. Just think about that. Here is a town Read more […]

The California Version of Sharia Law

Behold the secularist/atheist’s version of Sharia Law. Christianity Today asks: “Will InterVarsity Losing Cal State Standoff Be Tipping Point for Campus Ministries Nationwide?” Despite a year’s worth of persuasion and a New York Times article that sparked widespead support this summer, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship has lost campus access in America’s largest university system because it requires student leaders to affirm Christian doctrines. California State University has told Read more […]

Federal Judge Decriminalized Polygamy

Oh, and did you hear: A Utah Federal judge decriminalized polygamy. The ride into Hell just got culturally much bumpier. NPR reports, The case is high profile partly because the suit was brought forth by the Brown family, the stars of the TLC show Sister Wives. It’s also important because as it works its way through the appeals process, it has the potential to become a landmark. As the Salt Lake Tribune reads the decision, U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups says the part of the law that Read more […]

Sharia Law: What Was Wrong With Franklin Graham Saying “Go Back Where You Came From”?

CNS News is just reporting this, and it is worth considering. Franklin Graham, Billy Graham’s son, gave an interview to the Charlotte Observer. His statements about Muslims and Sharia law are what I want to comment on. Graham, who oversees the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said, “We should be afraid of Sharia law. We should be absolutely afraid of it. No question about it, because there’s no tolerance in Sharia law. It persecutes those that do not believe in Islam.” “And Read more […]
