“Judge Declan Morgan and two other justices on the Court of Appeal in Belfast, Ireland, have struck down free speech for bakery owners there, ruling that they must put messages on their cakes even if the words violate their conscience and faith. The stunning ruling came in the long-running case involving Ashers Baker, which was penalized by the local Equality Commission for Northern Ireland after the bakery owners said they could not promote homosexuality on a cake demanded by a customer because it violated their faith. …The deputy director for public affairs at the institute, which fought the battle on behalf of the bakery owners and freedom of speech, said, “Equality laws are there to protect people from discrimination, not to force people to associate themselves with a cause they oppose. But those same laws have become a weapon in the hands of those who want to oppress anyone who dissents from the politically correct norms of the moment. The law needs to change before more damage is done.” –Source
But will it change? I doubt that very seriously as we saw the last 6000 years. Whenever someone went against the “norm” the Bible and historic record declared such people to be troublers, false prophets, haters, rebels and dissenters, who as Saul who later became Paul stated were worthy of either death or imprisonment before he came to the Lord. In Paul’s day, a worldly inspired religious zeal was the means by which Satan was able to persecute. Today we see many different ways to persecute Christians because in today’s world most sins are considered ok. But lately, and as I stated many years ago and quite recently in a Newsletter I penned in February of 2004, we now understand homosexuality is the current means by which Satan will fill his coffer with lost souls. Be it in absolute lust towards that end. to wolves on pulpits condoning same. And yes, as I illustrate in that Newsletter, since it is the man of sin in Rome that Satan uses, most nations will push these unjust laws knowing their political ‘god’ in Rome is behind them and so they have very little push back from the churches who are already in bed with Rome.

“The latest WikiLeaks dump of John Podesta emails shows the Obama administration kept a list of high-profile Muslims it wanted to appoint to top administration jobs, sub-cabinet jobs and outside boards, agencies and policy committees. The 2008 emails reveal that it wasn’t enough to be Arab American, you had to be Arab and Muslim to make it onto this list.” –Source
And why is that you ask? It’s because Barack Hussein Obama is in fact a Muslim. I have quite the mountain of evidence compiled to confirm that as a bonafide fact listed here. Now don’t get me wrong. He is the American president and being as such he needs our prayers. For it is plainly stated in Romans 13:1-7 he is ordained of God to be in that oval office whether you like it or not. And as we see from the Old to the New Testament, the obedient people of God did always pray for their kings. This also included the conquering kings that took them captive. Continue reading →
“A Bible was removed from the waiting room of a Chillicothe Veteran Affairs Medical Center in Athens, Ohio after a veteran complained. “Our government is secular, and must remain secular,” the unidentified veteran wrote. Mikey Weinstein, the founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, fired off a letter to the medical center on behalf of the veteran – alleging that the presence of the Bible inside a government facility is a violation of the U.S. Constitution. Weinstein, a fussy man with a strong aversion to our Lord, said the Bible’s placement in the waiting room was “illicit and unconstitutional.” In other words, “Good Housekeeping” is fine, but the Good Book is not.” –Source
First and foremost, to make the claim “Our government is secular, and must remain secular” is not going to fly when the Lord finalizes judgment on the person that said it. Everyone, knows that when the government claims to separate church and state it is a bold faced lie. They will use the church when they can benefit by it and they will slam the church when they can benefit by it as well. The 501c3 as well as the so called “lessons” in the Koran in most public schools confirms this as concrete fact. Continue reading →
The Philippines has been one of the United States’ staunchest allies in the east ever since the end of World War 2. However this decades-long relationship has been rocked by the rise of President Rodrigo Duterte.
The fiery president from the southern city of Davao took the country’s foreign policy and flipped it over its head. Increasingly favoring Russia and China, Duterte had some choice words for President Obama and the EU especially when concerning his bloody war on drugs.
This is precisely why many believe that the recent Typhoon Sarika hitting the Philippines is the United State’s way of saying good riddance. It involves the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) system and Duterte’s statements about foreign aid. Continue reading →
“In a new set of education rules, the Chinese Communist Party is urging citizens to spy on their neighbors and report parents who raise their children in a religious faith or have them attend religious services. …The new rules, which will go into effect on November 1, stipulate that parents cannot “organize, lure or force minors into attending religious activities,” or force them to wear religious dress or symbols. Moreover, they cannot even “tolerate” that children attend “underground scripture studies.” –Source
“It is hypocritical to call yourself a Christian and to chase away a refugee, or anyone who needs your help. Jesus taught us what it means to be a good Christian in the parable of the Good Samaritan,” Francis said in a meeting with German Lutheran pilgrims at the Vatican.” –Source
First and foremost we all need to understand who is talking here. This is not just a Pope, aka man of sin as prophecy calls him, he is a Roman Catholic Jesuit priest to boot. Click here to read the oath he took to become a Jesuit. (very graphic!) And if you read the Jesuit oath, and especially what I call the “red paragraph” you will see this man is the ultimate hypocrite.
What he’s not saying here is far worse that what he is saying. Yes, Jesus said we must help people. But Jesus never said we must openly help people kill us and our Christian brethren, nor would Jesus ever condone breaking laws of the land as this and all previous Popes demand of American Catholics when it comes to the influx of illegal aliens that bolster the Catholic voting bloc. If it’s as this Pope claims when it comes to refugees, then all those that helped Paul descend the wall in a basket to escape his killers are also hypocrites. There’s a big difference between lending a helping hand as Christ would offer and lending a helping hand as Satan would offer. Continue reading →
In their forewords to a new book about the head of the Eastern Orthodox Church Patriarch Bartholomew I, Pope Francis and retired Pope Benedict XVI praised the faith and goodness of the ecumenical patriarch.
“Today, we brothers in the faith and hope that does not disappoint, we are deeply united in the desire that Christians of the East and the West can feel part of the one and only Church,” Pope Francis wrote.
The forewords were contributions to the book Bartholomew, Apostle and Visionary by John Chryssavgis, written in honor of the 25th anniversary of the patriarch’s election as head of the Eastern Orthodox Church. It was released Oct. 11. Continue reading →
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands – The Dutch government is set to legalize euthanasia for people who don’t want to live anymore but are not necessarily terminally ill or experiencing extreme suffering.
In a briefing to parliament on Wednesday, the health and justice ministers said that people who “have a well-considered opinion that their life is complete, must, under strict and careful criteria, be allowed to finish that life in a manner dignified for them.”
The option would be limited to “the elderly,” though the briefing did not define an age limit.
The move is the latest expansion of the country’s euthanasia policy, which critics have already have said does not protect vulnerable populations, including children, the disabled and those with mental illnesses. Continue reading →
ROME (CNS) — Jesuit Father Arturo Sosa Abascal, 67, a member of the Jesuits’ Venezuelan province, was elected the first non-European superior general of the Society of Jesus.
The 212 voting delegates to the Jesuit general congregation elected Father Sosa Oct. 14. He succeeds Father Adolfo Nicolas, 80, who had asked to resign because of his age.
Pope Francis was informed of the election of Father Sosa before the Jesuits announced it publicly.
The election came after four days of prayer, silence and quiet one-on-one conversations among the voting delegates, who were chosen to represent the more than 16,000 Jesuits around the world.
Reacting to his election, Father Sosa told Vatican Radio, “I have the feeling of needing great help; now the great challenge begins.”
Because they belong to the Society of Jesus, “Jesus must give us work to do here, too, with us,” he said. The work of the Jesuits isn’t the responsibility of one person, but of the entire order, whose members are “very good,” he said. Continue reading →
