Post Date: 2015-06-13 20:46:43 by hondo68
The Anti-Liberty Union of Church, State, and Bank June 12, 2015The Guardian reports that along with the ongoing clean-up efforts to correct its own history of corruption (including charges of money laundering), the Vatican bank has also agreed to comply with the U.S.s Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). Whats FATCA? A 2010 law designed to target non-compliance with US tax obligations. Under US law, American citizens who live abroad or have foreign bank accounts are required to report those accounts to the Internal Revenue Service. So, the Pope and Vatican bank are now in-effect tax collectors for the U.S. government. Why? In a signing ...
If Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians was Published in Christianity Today
Post Date: 2015-06-05 13:06:02 by redleghunter
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Christianity Today: In response to Paul D. Apostles article about the Galatian church in your January issue, I have to say how appalled I am by the unchristian tone of this hit piece. Why the negativity? Has he been to the Galatian church recently? I happen to know some of the people at that church, and they are the most loving, caring people Ive ever met. Phyllis Snodgrass; Ann Arbor, MI Dear Editor: How arrogant of Mr. Apostle to think he has the right to judge these people and label them accursed. ...

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 2, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, says that same-sex marriage is perfectly "consistent" with Catholic Christianity. Pelosi brought her grandchildren to see her receive an award from the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, to show the young, impressionable children that "marriage equality is important." In an interview with Thomas Roberts on MSNBC, Pelosi said she took the children to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund gala because "it's really important to see what the practice of our faith is." Pelosi, who described herself as a faithful Christian and mainstream Catholic, ...
The Gospel According to Nancy Pelosi
Post Date: 2015-06-01 08:36:43 by cranky
Jesus and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) seem to have different ideas of what it means to be a good Catholic. On Friday evening, Pelosi lashed out at Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for being a polarizing figure and not a good mainstream Catholic like her. When Rubio expressed his (very Catholic) opposition to same-sex marriage, Pelosi responded by pulling out her purported superior Catholic credentials, crowing that she had grown up in a mainstream Catholic family. She expressed her belief that Rubios opposition to same-sex marriage is polarizing, which threatens mainstream Christian thinking. Pelosis reasoning presents two enormous ...
Are Our Pastors Puppets For The New World Order?
Post Date: 2015-06-01 05:25:08 by Gatlin
When pastors and churches succumb to the notion of submitting to a domestic Police State, they unwittingly become puppets for the New World Order. Americas Founding Fathers wisely instituted a federal government with three separate branches with the intention of creating built-in checks and balances designed to protect the liberties of the American people and the independence of the sovereign states. Each branch of government was given authority to check the other branches when they became oppressive or unconstitutional. In addition to the checks and balances built into the federal government, they assumed that additional checks to power outside the federal government would serve to ...
Faith & values: New survey suggests marked decline in Christian affiliation
Post Date: 2015-05-31 18:10:08 by Gatlin
According to America's Changing Religious Landscape, the Christian share of the population has declined from 78.4 percent in 2007, to 70.6 percent in 2014, with the biggest dropoffs taking place among mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. In 1999, Chris Bolinger and his family joined the Evangelical Covenant Church in Hudson, where they found a thriving congregation of more than 300 members. By 2004, it was down to 100 people. It closed in 2009. It sent me into a depression, he recalled. It was the only church my kids had ever known.The closing of Bolingers church illustrates a new report by the Pew Research Center that suggests that ...

I read an interesting article from CNN awhile back in which author Kenda Creasy Dean, a professor at Princeton Theological Seminary, warned that American teenagers are embracing what she called a moralistic, therapeutic deism. As she interviewed teenagers about their faith, she discovered that many teenagers thought that God simply wanted them to feel good and do good. In other words, they were fake Christians. Now, let me explain. A fake Christian is not a struggling Christian, because every Christian struggles. Every Christian has times of falling short and sinning and slipping up. But that is not a fake Christian. A fake Christian is a poser, a pretender, an actor and an ...

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud." Clinton's biblical knowledge made an impression on the local assistant minister of Columbia's First Calvary Baptist Church. "You're doing what is the most important thing to do, it's continuing to study and learn what ...

The Decline of Christian America
Post Date: 2015-05-26 00:16:51 by nativist nationalist
This is a Christian nation, said the Supreme Court in 1892. America was born a Christian nation, echoed Woodrow Wilson. Harry Truman affirmed it: This is a Christian nation. But in 2009, Barack Hussein Obama begged to differ: We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation. Comes now a Pew Research Center survey that reveals the United States is de- Christianizing at an accelerated rate. Whereas 86 percent of Americans in 1990 identified as Christians, by 2007, that was down to 78 percent. Today only 7 in 10 say they are Christians. But the percentage of those describing themselves as atheists, agnostics or nonbelievers has risen to 23. ...

Post Date: 2015-05-24 07:48:15 by Gatlin
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) Members of a church went to downtown Providence to show it is their constitutional right to use cannabis. Services are normally held at the home of the churchs leader and former Rhode Island Gubernatorial candidate Anne Armstrong, but the group recently decided to pray publicly at the Roger Williams National Memorial in Providence. Earlier this week, three members were cited for possessing a controlled substance. Armstrong says, This is a very important constitutional issue and if it cant be decided here. I dont think there is any hope for America frankly. Alan Gordon is a member of the church and says, Ive been a ...

York County pastors call on Christians to love Muslims, ‘fear not’
Post Date: 2015-05-24 00:07:50 by Gatlin
Two dozen Christian pastors in York County have joined together to publicly call on members of their faith to embrace Muslims as their brothers and sisters. The Rev. Sam McGregor, pastor at Allison Creek Presbyterian Church near Lake Wylie, said he has jump-started the local effort because of recent threats against Muslims in the United States that came to light during the trial of Robert Doggart. Doggart, a failed congressional candidate from Tennessee, pleaded guilty this month to plotting to kill Muslims who live in a religious community in New York. The FBI uncovered and stopped Doggarts plan. A similar community, called Holy Islamville, has existed in York County for nearly 30 ...

Post Date: 2015-05-24 00:02:36 by Gatlin
SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -A week after a Salisbury pastor teamed up with the NAACP to express concerns about police mistreatment, WBTV has obtained video that contradicts the pastor's statements. Reverend Bill Godair of Cornerstone Church held a press conference last week with the head of the Salisbury-Rowan NAACP to say citizens were being mistreated by officers with the Salisbury Police Department, and the Godair himself had been a victim. "Approximately one year ago, I felt I was extremely mistreated by a Salisbury Police officer (I have never shared this with you)," Godair said in an email to Salisbury Mayor Paul Woodson and city council member Karen Alexander. "My wife ...

ROME, May 19, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Pope Francis has appointed radically liberal, pro-homosexual Dominican Father Timothy Radcliffe as a consultor for the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. The Holy Father made the appointment on Saturday, according to Vatican Radio. Father Radcliffe, an Englishman, author and speaker, was Master of the Dominican order from 1992 to 2001, and is an outspoken proponent of homosexuality.

This means watching 'Brokeback Mountain,' reading gay novels, living ...

YACOUB May 18th 2015 11:25AM BAGHDAD (AP) -- Islamic State militants likely killed up to 500 Iraqi civilians and soldiers and forced 8,000 people to flee from their homes as they captured the Iraqi city of Ramadi, a provincial official said Monday, while the extremists went door-to-door looking for policemen and pro-government tribesmen. Iraq's government and Iranian-backed Shiite militias vowed to mount a counter-offensive and reclaim Ramadi, the capital of the overwhelmingly Sunni Anbar province. Iran's Defense Minister Gen. Hossein Dehghan flew to Baghdad on a surprise visit for urgent talks ...
If religion is in decline, it might only have itself to blame
Post Date: 2015-05-15 08:51:58 by Willie Green
According to a Pew Research Center study released Tuesday, the number of Americans calling themselves Christian has dropped off sharply in recent years while the "none" classification has sharply increased -- especially among young people. One third of millennials say they have no faith affiliation. This was the result of a survey of 35,000 American adults. What does this mean? This should be a wake up call for Christian America to look at itself and realize what it is doing wrong. And as an outsider I have an opinion to share. I was neither raised Christian or religious but I lived in a majority Christian society. Although some of their rituals seemed a little ...
