In many COVID hot spots, a pattern: High concentrations of white evangelicals By Jack Jenkins Its clear that the pattern is more white evangelical Protestants equals lower vaccination rates, said Natalie Jackson, research director at the Public Religion Research Institute. As COVID-19 cases surge again, two things are true about many counties considered hot spots: Vaccination rates are low and white evangelical Protestant populations are high, according to a new data analysis. Concern about vaccine hesitancy or outright anti-vaccine sentiment among white evangelicals has persisted since at least March, when, according to a poll from Pew Research Center, those who ...

Christian nationalism is a barrier to mass vaccination against COVID-19 While the majority of Americans either intend to get the COVID-19 vaccine or have already received their shots, getting white evangelicals to vaccination sites may prove more of a challenge especially those who identify as Christian nationalists. A Pew Research Center survey conducted in February found white evangelicals to be the religious group least likely to say theyd be vaccinated against the coronavirus. Nearly half (45%) said they would not get the COVID-19 shot, compared with 30% of the general population. [

Obama Predicts Major Discovery Could Spark 'New Religions'
Post Date: 2021-06-05 14:47:50 by Gatlin
Former President Barack Obama a professing Christian is predicting the discovery of life on other planets could spark new religions. The 59-year-old Democrat shared his prognostication during a conversation with New York Times columnist Ezra Klein. While the discovery of life elsewhere in the universe would certainly be a paradigm shifting revelation, Obama said it wouldnt change his politics. Its interesting, he told Klein. It wouldnt change my politics at all, because my entire politics is premised on the fact that we are these tiny organisms on this little speck floating in the middle of space. But, no doubt, ...

America is losing its religion — and the effects will be long-lasting
Post Date: 2021-04-09 08:59:05 by Gatlin
New surveys show Americans' membership in communities of worship has declined sharply in recent years, with less than 50% of the country belonging to a church, synagogue or mosque. Why it matters: The accelerating trend towards a more secular America represents a fundamental change in the national character, one that will have major ramifications for politics and even social cohesion.

2 Reasons using the Bible to prove your point is often wrong.
Post Date: 2020-11-03 12:56:56 by Gatlin
2 Reasons using the Bible to prove your point is often wrong. If you read comments online, youve undoubtedly seen this scenario: Someone is upset about some behavior or other. They hammer out their comment declaring that such-and-such is PROHIBITED BY THE BIBLE!!! Almost immediately someone else retorts so is wearing polyester and eating shell fish. Youll hear some people claim that it was Biblical Christians who invented hospitals, championed abolition, elevated womens position in society. Others will argue that it was so-called Biblical Christians who used the Bible to uphold slavery in America, or to keep women from getting the right to vote. I still feel that ...
Catholic Priest: “You Cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat” Because Democrats are Pro-Abortion
Post Date: 2020-09-22 09:34:14 by IbJensen
A Wisconsin priest told Catholics that they have a duty and obligation to speak out against immoral politicians who support the killing of unborn babies in abortions. In a video produced by Alpha News, Father James Altman, of Saint James the Less, in La Crosse Wisconsin, made some strong and what will certainly be seen as controversial statements about Catholics role in politics in America. Altman insisted that Catholics cannot vote Democrat because of the partys radical pro-abortion stance. He faulted gutless cowards in the clergy for failing to teach Catholics the truth about God and the value of every human life. When politics and politicians ...
Southern Baptists want to change their name to "Great Commission Baptists" because the word "Southern" is triggering (Not satire)
Post Date: 2020-09-15 21:32:51 by Deckard
Don't do it, SBC. Don't feed the Woke Monster.From the Washington Post today:Leaders in the Southern Baptist Convention are increasingly dropping the "Southern" part of their Baptist name, calling it a potentially painful reminder of the convention's historic role in support of slavery.The 50,000 Baptist churches in the convention are autonomous and can still choose to refer to themselves as "Southern Baptist" or "SBC." But in his first interview on the topic, convention president J.D. Greear said momentum has been building to adopt the name "Great Commission Baptists," both because of the racial reckoning underway in the United States and ...

Some of the Most Visible Christians in America Are Failing the Coronavirus Test
Post Date: 2020-07-31 06:07:09 by Gatlin
Some of the Most Visible Christians in America Are Failing the Coronavirus Test In place of love, theyre offering stark self-righteous judgment. If the coronavirus is a test of our collective character, some American Christians are flat-out flunking. Consider the popular pastor John Piper, who was asked what he would say to pastors who claim that the pandemic is Gods judgment on sinful cities and arrogant nations. God sometimes uses disease to bring particular judgments upon those who reject him and give themselves over to sin, Piper responded. Or perhaps look to R. R. Reno, the editor of the conservative Christian journal First Things, who argued that ...

Post Date: 2020-06-30 22:43:30 by Deckard
Christian media outlets report a revival filled with miracles has been happening in the spot where George Floyd died in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department. CBN News reports salvations, baptisms, worship and healings are taking place. The movement began with Dr. Charles Karuku and Pastor Lindsey Karuku of International Outreach Church, CBN News said. They told CBNs The Prayer Link that they felt a call from God. I was on a 40-day fast that ended the day after George Floyd was killed, Dr. Charles said. When we started the fast, the Lord told us that, on the day of Pentecost, He would do a big thing. We did not know what it would be, so we kept praying and ...
On Religion: Dismantle the police?
Post Date: 2020-06-20 19:48:44 by Gatlin
On Religion: Dismantle the police? The authorities that exist have been established by God. Romans 13:1 Its been a wild ride these past few weeks in America. Two weeks ago, protesters in Washington D.C. painted Defund the Police on a street just a few blocks from the White House. In Minneapolis, where George Floyd was killed on Memorial Day, nine of the 13 city council members publicly supported an effort to defund and dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. And, closer to home, there has been major protest activity at the Adelanto ICE Processing Center run by GEO Group. Protesters are demanding the release of detainees. The building was tagged ...
Priest Calls Cops On Parishoner for Not Wearing Face Mask
Post Date: 2020-06-20 14:45:13 by Deckard
Another win for the statists who propagandized and want us to fear everything but marauding protesters. The above thanks to Martin Hill who also notes: Does this priest not even know, since he adheres to this mask hysteria, that his touching , rubbing & smearing his hands all over his mask, according to the CDC mask guidelines, he has completely contaminated both his hands and the mask. He now, according to protocol which he claims to believe in, must discard the mask entirely, & wash his hands with soap and water. I'm not making this up, you can download the PDF filed on the CDC website. That's the most insane thing about all this. They are so dumbed down that ...
