The family of a man murdered on Facebook Live put their faith into action as they announced their forgiveness of accused killer Steve Stephens.
“The thing that I would take away the most from my father is he taught us about God,” Tonya Godwin Baines told Anderson Cooper. “How to fear God. How to love God. And how to forgive. Each one of us forgives the killer. The murderer.”

A Christian mother is accusing the social media giant Facebook of censorship after her account was suspended over posts on what the Bible says about homosexuality and sin.

lhwm notes: Facebook is not in control of our conscience and Facebook does not decide what is right or what is wrong. God has spoken what is good and what is evil. Satan HATES God, but God does not go around worrying about what Satan is going to do next. Satan has to ask permission from God to do anything, REMEMBER THAT!!! Fight the good fight of faith! Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. Job 1:12 And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord. Job 2:1 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord. Luke 22:31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: 32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
“As I was sitting eating my double cheeseburger at Wendy’s, I glanced over at this older couple, and thought ‘That’s sweet’ and continued with my meal,” the Facebook user wrote. “But when I looked again, in between bites, I saw this gentleman feeding his wife. My whole life I’ve yearned for a love that strong.”
“The gentleman got up from his seat to throw his food away and I couldn’t resist asking how long he and his wife had been married. He looked at me and asked me to guess his age but not to guess too low. After a few guesses he told me he was 96 and his wife is 93 who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. This is their date night. He also told me that if they make it till June, they will be celebrating 75 years of marriage!”… [read more]
Google couldn’t get Hillary Clinton elected president but now they’re going deep into the world of communication as self-appointed scrubbers of “hate speech” online.
Hate speech to you could be Madonna saying at last month’s Washington March that she thinks of “blowing up the White House”. Hate speech to Google could be posting that you think “Donald Trump makes a better president than Hillary Clinton ever would”.
Silencing those with whom you disagree under the blanket of “hate speech” is a very sneaky business, but when the sneak just happens to be the world’s foremost search engine, sneak turns to snark and there’s no way around it.
For bloggers, commenters and news sites Google’s “hate speech” fence will be much harder to scale than any wall at the U.S. southern border…. [read more]
