Kent Hovind’s Spiritual War

Back in the 1990s, I published a magazine called the AntiShyster.  That publication focused mainly on criticizing lawyers and the judicial system, but I also touched on issues of religion.  I’d also sometimes touch on extraneous subjects that simply impressed me as interesting and important.One of those subjects was Kent Hovind’s arguments in favor of Creationism–the idea that man really was created by God in the way described in Genesis.  According to Hovind, man is not the result of evolution. At the time, I was in my 40s and regarded myself as semi-educated and reasonably intelligent.  Therefore, I knew that the … Continue reading Kent Hovind’s Spiritual War

The Stubborn Antisemitism of Yahoo and The Christian Century

Muslim and Arab hostility toward Israel and Jews was downplayed and ignored while Jewish wrongdoing was highlighted. Palestinian violence was depicted as an attempt to achieve sovereignty, and not as an attempt to deny the Jews their right to sovereignty. Palestinians’ actions were explained; Israelis’ actions were condemned. When presented with evidence of James M. Wall’s factual errors, the publication declined to correct them. Eventually some people in mainline churches started to realize that these overtures were causing more damage to mainline Protestantism than they were to Israel. The crimes of The Christian Century continue unabated. Yahoo, the well-known search … Continue reading The Stubborn Antisemitism of Yahoo and The Christian Century

When Beheading Comes to the Heartland of America

If Christians don’t wake up, it will be devastating to everything sacred. (Scott Liddell/freeimages.com) The recent beheadings in the Middle East and now one in our homeland reveal far more than the horrific deeds of a terrorist group. It actually reveals the evil intent of Satan himself. It is very important that we recognize evil and stand firmly against it. More important, however, we must understand the source. We are witnessing the expressed desire of the enemy of life and freedom. Jesus said of those who scourged Him, spit in His face, plucked His beard, placed a crown of thorns … Continue reading When Beheading Comes to the Heartland of America

Anti-jihad ads coming to N.Y. buses: ‘It’s not Islamophobia, it’s Islamorealism’

Starting next week, a series of six anti-jihad ads are set to appear on about 100 buses and two subway entrances in New York City, The Blaze reported Saturday. One ad shows beheaded American journalist James Foley next to the man who killed him and reads, “It’s not Islamophobia, it’s Islamorealism.” Another ad says that “Christians are becoming extinct everywhere in the Middle East except Israel” and demands an end to U.S. aid going to Muslim countries.

NY Christian Farm Owners Will No Longer Host Any Wedding Ceremonies After Fined $13K for Refusing Lesbian Ceremony

The owners of a New York farm, who were fined $13,000 for “discriminating” against same-sex couples by refusing a wedding service to a lesbian couple due to their religious convictions, have now decided not to hold any marriage ceremonies even though it will likely hurt their business. A month after a judge ruled that the farm owned by Cynthia and Robert Gifford is a public accommodation and therefore they must abide by the N.Y. anti-discrimination law, the couple has decided to no longer host any wedding ceremonies on their property, according to Alliance Defending Freedom. “Since the order essentially compelled … Continue reading NY Christian Farm Owners Will No Longer Host Any Wedding Ceremonies After Fined $13K for Refusing Lesbian Ceremony

Boko Haram Declares ‘Islamic Caliphate’ in Captured Christian Town in Nigeria

Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram has declared an “Islamic Caliphate” in the predominantly Christian town of Gwoza, which it seized earlier in August and slaughtered over 100 civilians. “Thanks be to Allah who gave victory to our brethren in (the town of) Gwoza and made it part of the Islamic caliphate,” Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau says in a 52-minute video obtained by AFP on Sunday, which also apparently shows the execution of civilians. The Nigerian military has rejected the claim, stating that the “sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Nigerian state is still intact.” The Islamic extremist group has waged … Continue reading Boko Haram Declares ‘Islamic Caliphate’ in Captured Christian Town in Nigeria

Why Won’t Putin Help Middle East Christians?

Putin is more interested in doing weapons deals that make rubles for his regime and his cronies. His halo looks like another KGB deception. An article titled, “Iraq’s Christians See Putin As Savior,” appeared on the website of The Daily Beast in late June. It was picked up by literally dozens of “news” sites all over the Internet, contributing to the perception that Russia was actually prepared to do something on behalf of these Christians and other minorities. The article referred to “Russia’s increasingly cozy relationship with Middle Eastern Christians” and included a photo of Putin under a halo. But … Continue reading Why Won’t Putin Help Middle East Christians?
