Many Christian organizations are fearful for their safety after CNN published a bogus “hate map” concocted by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
“Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” CNN’s headline declared.
The list included among others American Family Association, Family Research Council, Alliance Defending Freedom, Liberty Counsel and Pacific Justice Institute.
American Family Association blasted the CNN story calling it a “sham news article that could easily incite violence and place AFA employees and supporters in harm’s way.”
Liberty Counsel President Mat Staver demanded an immediate retraction – calling CNN’s report “false, defamatory and dangerous.”
“Liberty Counsel is not a hate group,” he said. “The false ‘hate’ label is very damaging to our reputation and is a safety risk to our staff. Liberty Counsel is a Christian ministry, and hates no one.”… read more
BUDAPEST – In a time when most of Europe is in the grips of atheism, there is a nation where Christianity seems to not only be holding its own but some say is thriving.
Imagine a government that is unabashedly Christian, that thinks Christian values are worth defending, that wants to protect and even nourish the family. Welcome to Hungary.
A Christian Nation
Hungary’s constitution is explicitly Christian and says that marriage is between one man and one woman and that life begins at conception. It even includes the phrase, “God bless the Hungarians.”… read more
Tensions are high this week after North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un announced plans to strike Guam with a missile.
While these threats may scare some people, the Christians in Guam have a different response: prayer.
“We actually spent time in prayer for the situation in North Korea and the threats that are going on,” Howard Merrell, interim president of Pacific Islands University, a Christian university in Guam, told CBN News.
While many on the island remain calm, Merrell says the people who are taking it hardest are the Koreans living there… read more
The Catholic Church’s response to recent turmoil over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem confirms that the Church is using Islamic replacement theology, in “direct violation of the Torah”, to “promote heresy” and deny the Jewish and Biblical connection to the Mount, said prominent Christian and Jewish voices in a harsh takedown of anti-Israel Christian vitriol.
“These so-called ‘Heads of Churches in Jerusalem’ are false prophets,” Laurie Cardoza-Moore, an influential Evangelical figure in the global pro-Israel Christian movement, told Breaking Israel News in an exclusive interview. “Their words are in direct violation of the Torah, the prophets, the writings and the New Testament.”
Cardoza-Moore, President of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations and special envoy to the United Nations, referred to a declaration made last Wednesday by a group of churches under the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem which placed blame for flaring tensions on the Temple Mount solely on Israel… read more
A grief-stricken Christian Planned Parenthood worker has revealed the reality behind her employer — it is as bad as pro-lifers say it is. Can God forgive her for working at the nation’s largest abortion provider, she asked.
Last Friday, an anonymous Planned Parenthood employee called into Dr. Michael Brown’s nationally syndicated conservative talk radio show “The Line of Fire” and expressed serious regret for the fact that she has been working for Planned Parenthood in an administrative position for over four months.
Even though she opposes abortion, the caller took the position because she was a single mother in need of a well-paying job… read more
Homes. Graveyards. Shipping Containers.
These are the meeting places of the Eritrean church. Over 100 believers have been arrested in Eritrea during the last month, but Greg Musselman of Voice of the Martyrs Canada says the recent crackdown is nothing new for the nation.
Fifteen years ago, the evangelical Church in Eritrea was growing. “The government was very paranoid and they saw evangelical Christianity as destabilizing the country,” said Musselman. “They thought the church would bring an American agenda to Eritrea and cause all sorts of problems.”
The Eritrean government had a close relationship with the Orthodox Church, and the number of Christians leaving the Orthodox Church to join evangelicals was starting to grow too quickly. New laws were passed. Lutheran, Catholic and Orthodox churches were allowed to remain, and Islam remained virtually untouched, but evangelical churches were shut down and forced to register.<!–more–>
Apparently if you defend the 1st Amendment, you are guilty of hate speech. That’s the argument put forth by several news outlets — ABC, NBC, CNN — and even Teen Vogue.
On Tuesday night, June 11, Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave a speech to the members of the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a religious freedom group. The ADF is assisting the Supreme Court case involving Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker who refused to bake a gay wedding cake.
Major networks are enraged. In headlines for both ABC and NBC, they called the ADF an “anti-LGBT hate group.” On what would the networks base that characterization? It’s the hysterical assessment of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).<!–more–>
Christians in Eritrea are facing increased persecution since the government began a concerted crackdown on the Christian population in May.
According to The Christian Post, at least 160 Christians have been arrested by government authorities in the past month or so.
Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) reports that 33 women of the 160 or so Christians are being held at Nakura, which is “”a notoriously harsh prison island in the Dahlak Archipelago that was created by Italian colonialists in the late 19th Century to crush political dissent.”
In addition, some of the women’s children are with them in prison. The youngest child is reported to be only two months old.
“Unbelievably more than 30 children have been left without parents or guardians and the security police are monitoring them to make sure they do not get support from the Christian community,” says a report from Release International….. read more
