Reading Into Einstein's God Letter
Post Date: 2018-12-27 07:18:24 by Deckard
Einstein had what might be called a night-sky theology, a sense of the awesomeness of the universe that even atheists and materialists feel.Photograph by Ernst Haas / GettyAlbert Einsteins so-called God letter first surfaced in 2008, when it fetched four hundred and four thousand dollars in a sale at a British auction house. The letter came back into the news earlier this month, when its owner or owners auctioned it off again, this time at Christies in New York, and someone paid $2.9 million for it, a pretty good return on investment, and apparently a record in the Einstein-letters market. The former top seller was a copy of a letter to Franklin Roosevelt from 1939, warning ...

Are we doing better with health care, poverty, homeless now with the state in charge than we did with religious charities being involved? Acton Institute founder Fr. Robert Sirico joins today's Liberty Report to discuss why free markets and Christianity are a very good match:

Pope Francis Implementing Change Of Lord’s Prayer: ‘Lead Us Not Into Temptation’
Post Date: 2018-12-11 10:19:45 by IbJensen
(Phony pope, Bergoglio.) The Vatican under Pope Francis will soon be implementing a change to the Lord's Prayer, also known as the Pater Noster, switching out the line "lead us not into temptation" for the Francis-approved "abandon us not into temptation." According to the U.K.'s Express, the change to the Lord's Prayer comes after 16 years of research by experts who found a mistake in the current translation "from a theological, pastoral and stylistic viewpoint." It has been translated into literally hundreds of languages from the original texts in ancient Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic. Last year around Christmas, Pope Francis spoke of his desire ...
Every President Recited This Prayer Except Trump
Post Date: 2018-12-06 08:43:38 by Willie Green
Trump didnt recite the Apostles Creed during the funeral for former President George H.W. Bush. People on Twitter are calling out President Donald Trump for failing to recite the Apostles Creed at the funeral for former President George H. W. Bush on Wednesday. Footage from the event shows much of the church, including the former presidents seated with Trump, standing to recite the profession of faith. Trump and first lady Melania Trump stood, but did not recite the prayer, which was written in the program, nor did they sing the hymns. Given Trumps widespread support among evangelical Christians, that led to plenty of criticism on social ...
Fastest growing religion is ‘none’
Post Date: 2018-11-12 09:56:02 by Willie Green
The men and women relaxing on yoga mats recently at a Minneapolis meditation center didnt know it, but most belonged to the fastest-growing religion in America none at all. They included a former Lutheran who left the church because the Bible clashed with science, a former Catholic who became leery of its teachings, a former Baptist uninspired by Sunday services, a young man raised with no religion. They reveal a major force behind the empty pews in churches across Minnesota and the nation. Nearly one in four Americans now declare themselves unaffiliated with any organized religion. An estimated 56 million strong, and growing, there are more of them than all mainline ...

‘God Is Going to Have to Forgive Me’
Post Date: 2018-11-01 18:33:59 by Willie Green
The role of evangelical Christianity in American politics has been a hotly discussed topic this year, intersecting with front-burner issues like immigration, the Supreme Court and social justice. Often the loudest evangelical voices are white, male and
not young. With just days left before the midterm elections two years after President Trump won the White House with a record share of white, evangelical support we asked young evangelicals to tell The Times about the relationship between their faith and their politics. Nearly 1,500 readers replied, from every state but Alaska and Vermont. Hundreds wrote long essays about their families and communities. They go to ...
“Christian Rabbi” Who Appeared With Pence to Pray for Pittsburgh Synagogue Victims Was Defrocked 15 Years Ago
Post Date: 2018-11-01 10:06:36 by Willie Green
The Christian rabbi who was invited onstage by Vice President Mike Pence at a Tuesday rally for a congressional candidate in Michigan to lead a prayer in memory of the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting victims was defrocked 15 years ago, the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations told NBC News. The choice of Loren Jacobs outraged some Jews, who were insulted by the choice of a man belonging to a group that believes Jesus is the son of God for the remembrance of the synagogue victims. Some Jews have said that Jacobs should not be called a rabbi, given that his beliefs align more with Christianity than Judaism. According to NBC, a spokeswoman for the religious group said the Union ...

Pope Francis says the devil is causing people to question the Catholic Church

Pope Francis says the devil is causing people to question the Catholic Church; has nothing to do with priests sexually molesting choir boys Taking a very brief reprieve from his more typical lectures promoting limitless illegal immigration and global climate taxes, Roman Catholic head Pope Francis finally addressed the far more serious problem of homosexual Catholic priests molesting and raping underage boys but not in the way youre probably thinking. During a recent sermon, Pope Francis decided to call out those who are seeking full disclosure and truth on the matter, labeling them tools of the Great Accuser, a.k.a. Satan.

The Catholic Church is a cesspool
Post Date: 2018-07-23 15:40:40 by IbJensen
More than a decade and a half after the septic holding tank was overturned in Boston, the unfathomable noxious waste of sexual abuse by Catholic priests in this country is still seeping out in fetid drips. As a Catholic, I believe that the Church was founded by the apostle St. Peter at the behest of Christ Himself. I also believe that it was for many years and will for many more still remain a cesspool. A month ago, Theodore Cardinal McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington, D.C., was removed from public ministry after credible allegations were made that he had abused a 16-year-old altar boy in 1971. Almost immediately after the announcement was made, it was revealed that at ...
God is not a Libertarian
Post Date: 2018-07-11 05:22:33 by Gatlin
A friend of mine recently requested that I review the video An Introduction to Libertarian Thought presented by David Boaz on the libertarianism.org website. You can view the video for yourself at this link: http://www.libertarianism.org/media/exploring-liberty/introduction- libertarian-thought. My goal was to compare libertarian philosophy with the teachings of Scripture. This article presents the results of that analysis. Mr. Boaz presented three fundamental tenets of libertarianism: individual rights, spontaneous order and limited government. One of these three is blatantly unscriptural. The other two are somewhat more subtle in their error, but ...

There has been 'rapid' growth in interest in taking vows of lifelong celibacy, Catholic Church says Pope Francis appears before the crowd in St Peter's Square on Easter Sunday An increasing number Catholic women are taking life-long chastity vows in order to dedicate themselves to God, according to the Vatican. The Holy See has issued new guidance on consecrated virginity in response to growing interest across the world in the little-known spiritual vocation.

American Millennials Are Leaving Religion Because They're Sinners
Post Date: 2018-07-01 22:59:17 by Tooconservative
Polls can be quite useful. But polls can also cause us to dive down the rabbit hole of interpretation. We often take apart poll numbers and twist ourselves into dialectical pretzels attempting to discern human motivation. At times, our efforts obscure the truth that the answer is quite simple, really. A case in point is Jana Riess' article for Religion News Service in which she explains why American millennials are leaving religion. For one thing, Riess points out that among non-white Protestants the numbers have remained stable. In fact, among some identity sets, the number of religious millennials is growing. Protestants have seen 1.6 percent growth among millennials of color who are ...
