 If you were hoping for a born-again Protestant to finally serve on the Supreme Court, keep up your wishful thinking (or sincere prayers). It’s probably not going to happen any time soon. At 23.9% of the American population, Roman Catholics make up 66.6% of the Supreme Court (we are counting Neil Gorsuch in that number, although he now attends a fairly religionless Episcopal church). At 1.4% of the American population, Jews make up 33% of the Supreme Court. President Donald Trump’s latest nominee for the highest court will not change those figures.

Kavanaugh’s Roman Catholic church home, Washington D.C.
Brett Kavanaugh is a Roman Catholic and is a regular lector at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Washington, D.C (not to be confused with Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery, which is in Birmingham, Alabama). That church claims to serve 9,497 men, women and children (as of 2012; more recent figures have not been made available).

He is also closely tied to the Jesuit order, lecturing and teaching at the Washington Jesuit Academy. He also attended the Georgetown Preparatory Academy, the same Jesuit High School that was attended by Neil Gorsuch. In fact, Kavanaugh even mentioned the Jesuit component of his high school on Monday night in his acceptance speech, saying, “The motto of my Jesuit high school was, ‘Men for others,’” he said. “I have tried to live that creed.”
The Georgetown Preparatory Academy is the oldest Jesuit school in the United States, having begun in 1789. A building on the campus of the high school, the William S. George Center, has a visual history of the growth of similar Jesuit schools in the United States, with all their various seals. The Georgetown Preparatory Academy is the only Jesuit boarding school in the United States.
The school was founded by the vision of John Carroll, the first bishop and archbishop of the United States. Carroll joined the “Society of Jesus,” (the Jesuits) in 1753, then joined the deaconate and eventually the priesthood. After a brief stay in Europe, Carroll returned to the American colonies when Pope Clement XIV began to suppress the Jesuit influence because of their militancy and constant struggle to control the church in the New World (the Jesuit order was restored to the Roman Catholic church in 1814). Carroll’s work in the new United States grew quickly, establishing a Jesuit majority in the U.S.
Over the course of his public career, Brett Kavanaugh has repeatedly lauded the work of both John Carroll and the Jesuit order.

Brett Kavanaugh with President Donald J Trump
However, on top of the bad news that a Christian will not be filling the shoes of Justice Kennedy on the court if Trump’s nominee is approved, it seems unlikely that Kavanaugh will overturn Roe v Wade, the 1973 decision by the Supreme Court that is largely seen as legalizing abortion (there is a serious Constitutional question as to whether or not it is the role of the judicial branch of government to make something legal or illegal).
While some conservatives are happy with Trump’s selection of Kavanaugh because he appears to be a strict constructionist and originalist – desiring to interpret the Constitution as it was originally designed to be understood – others are signaling that Kavanaugh’s one area of weakness is the issue of abortion, one of the most monumental overreaches of judicial power in U.S. history.
In May of 2006, Kavanaugh was asked by Chuck Schumer during his confirmation hearings for the D.C. Circuit Court if he would uphold Roe V Wade and he answered in the affirmative.
“If confirmed to the D.C. Circuit, I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully. That would be binding precedent of the court,” Kavanaugh said, referring to the legal principle of stare decisis. “It’s been decided by the Supreme Court.”
You can watch the video here.
This incident is one of the very few times Kavanaugh has responded to direct questions about abortion, but it does not bode well for pro-life conservatives.
Last October, Kavanaugh was a part of an appellate decision in which the “right to an abortion” for an illegal immigrant was confirmed, but not the right to “immediate abortion on demand.” In other words, it was Kavanaugh’s opinion that the abortion could wait until the baby was a bit older in the womb and that it wasn’t urgent. This is hardly a pro-life victory. A dissenting opinion on the appellate panel, from Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson, argued – unlike Kavanaugh – that the illegal alien had no “right” to an abortion because she wasn’t a Citizen to begin with.
While pro-abortion activists are panicking over Kavanaugh’s selection, from every possible indicator it seems that the Justice may limit certain access to abortion, but it is highly unlikely that he would vote to overturn Roe altogether. And for the unborn, that’s no real victory. In the meantime, pro-life proponents hope that Kavanaugh has been intentionally silent on abortion during his career so as to be able to pass Senate confirmation hearings, should he ever be nominated for the Supreme Court. While possible, this scenario is probably unlikely.


Meltdown: Left Seething Over Trump-Putin Summit
 Collusion actually between US intelligence and Democrats
SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:

Russian President Vladimir Putin dropped a bombshell on Monday, accusing US intelligence operatives of funneling $400 million from Russia to the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Putin addressed the Justice Department’s indictments of 12 Russian intelligence officials, and offered for FBI special counsel Robert Mueller to assist with Russia’s own investigation of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.
“I don’t know the full extent of the situation… and I will look into it.” Russian President Putin on 12 Russian agents indicted for US election hack
“For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case,” Putin said, referring to a British hedge fund CEO wanted by Interpol on behalf of the Russian government.
“Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000,000, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton.”
“Well, that’s their personal case. It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal,” he continued. “So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence offers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest in questioning them.”
Additionally, Browder also has ties to Fusion GPS, the firm who created the notorious “Steele Dossier,” which we now know was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign to smear then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.
“Here’s the bottom line: We have congressional testimony, under oath, that Clinton hired the same firm to smear Trump that Putin reportedly used to smear Magnitsky. Moreover, we also know that the Fusion GPS dossier relied on senior Russian government officials for much of the dirt it compiled, including ‘a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure’ and a ‘former top level intelligence officer still active in the Kremlin.’ Together, those are bombshell revelations,” The Washington Post reported last year.
“Yet today, there is barely a peep in the mainstream media about the Clinton-Fusion-Putin connection.”
Highlights From The Historic Trump Putin Summit
Putin and Trump Destroy Fake News Together 
Trump and Putin destroyed the fake news like a pair of tag-team wrestlers today, shattering the mainstream misinformation in front of the world. Harrison Smith breaks down the most bombshell moments of the press conference.
SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
The left went insane over President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin after they denied “Russian collusion” and interference in the 2016 U.S. election.
Democrats and the media descended into meltdowns over the Helsinki meeting on Monday, calling Trump “treasonous,” “afraid,” and “embarrassing.”
He did act afraid.

He was afraid.

He is afraid to stand up to Putin and defend America from Russia meddling in our elections.

Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???
From a national security expert who has supported President Trump: “Played like a fiddle. Unmitigated disaster. Embarrassing.”
Millions of Americans will continue to wonder if the only possible explanation for this dangerous behavior is the possibility that President Putin holds damaging information over President Trump.
American journalists have shown more bravery and honesty in questioning Putin about the Russian attack on American sovereignty than the President of the United States.
Our president had the chance to confront an adversary who continues to attack our democracy & our allies. He didn’t. Instead he offered distractions, moral equivalence, & appeasement. This shameful performance doesn’t represent the US or what we stand for: 
Wow, Trump is going out of his way to praise Russia. I guess “wow” is now an understatement, but this is truly a remarkable moment in American history, 72 hours after the DoJ accused Russia of a criminal act against the democracy, POTUS essentially forgives Russia on world stage
As an American…this was embarrassing. I never thought I would see an American president side with putin over their own intel agencies. I know Trump thinks somehow this is good for him. He is wrong. And his advisors better tell him that or tell us why they won’t.
At the very end, I attempted to ask Trump if he told Putin to stay out of US elections (as he said he would last Friday). No response.
Once again, @realDonaldTrump takes to the international stage to embarrass America, undermine our institutions, weaken our alliances, & embrace a dictator. Russia interfered in our elections & attacked our democracy. Putin must be held accountable – not rewarded. Disgraceful.
Trump, on the international stage w/Putin, sounded like someone whose diet solely consists of right-wing / conspiratorial media. Hard to tell difference between Trump, and someone like Hannity on Fox News. Attacks on Strzok, talk of Clinton’s server, Imran Awan conspiracy, etc.
Point made just now: If this is what Trump said publicly, what did he say privately?
It’s embarrassing that American flags were present at , because an American president was not. Our president, above everything else, must defend US. @realDonaldTrump just showed he cannot and will always side with Russia. @HouseGOP, do you hear the fire alarm?
Today’s presser was a shameful display of cowardice and capitulation. Just days after 12 high-ranking Russian intelligence officers were indicted for their attack on American democracy, Trump stood next to Putin and refused to call on Russia to not attack us again.
Everyone is numb and in shock. We can’t believe what we just witnessed, but for me it’s this simple: The President of the United States openly colluded with Putin to undermine our democracy.
I decided not to live-tweet Trump’s Helsinki treachery. He embarrassed, lied about and attacked the US in all the ways—and gave US enemy Putin the PR victory—we expected. His closed-door 90-minute meeting of *course* went long—130+ minutes. It was all the evil we feared and more.
The exclusive Trump/Putin meeting now makes perfect sense. Today another shoe dropped. Undeniably, Trump’s first allegiance is to Russia
Trump is asked, Who are you going to believe—the Russians or your own officers? And he refused to choose! Do you support your troops or Putin — and he wouldn’t choose! So my first thought goes out to those who serve this country— I’m so sorry the Commander-in-Chief is a traitor.
Meanwhile, former Congressman Ron Paul, a notable critic of Trump’s foreign policy, viewed the summit as a success due to its diplomatic tone.
His son, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), another noteworthy anti-war statesman, also expressed his optimism over the meeting.
from @realDonaldTrump and I couldn’t agree more: “…open new pathways to peace and stability in our world. I would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace, then to risk peace in pursuit of politics.”

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), after more than a hundred years of standing for biblical truth, has taken a left turn and is sliding into oblivion. Panic has set in since the denomination has lost over a million members since 2003! Something must be done—and in my opinion, that something, will destroy them.
The SBC has been plagued for decades with accelerating dangers that all denominations have faced. Local independent Baptist churches are having similar problems but not as pressing because they have no organizational structure. Thousands of churches have departed the convention over the years for what is perceived as a falling away from its original theological positions.
Some of the major SBC problems are female pastors, wine-bibbing clergy, Calvinism, Pentecostalism, post millennialism, unbelief in their pulpits, colleges, and seminaries, the sex scandal and sacking of Frank Page, president of the SBC Executive Committee, etc.
But the crux of the matter is a weakening of biblical inerrancy. With the younger generation of clergy, it does not seem to matter what the Bible says. They are determined to take the SBC in a “new direction” even if it means the group is totally transformed into their loose, modern image. Some of the changes are an improvement such as more Hispanics (as long as they are not tokens) and more females in their organizational structure; however, that does not justify the radical departure including female pastors. Their position on sexual matters would delight the political leaders in Sodom in yesteryears.
Older, traditional SBC members are aghast, angry, and anxious as they watch the denomination that highly dedicated, educated, and selfless leaders built being destroyed by the “Young Turks.”
The next major issue that will face the SBC is the leadership of women in their bureaucracy adding to the problem of female pastors. At present time, there are about 30 SBC churches that have a female pastor. The argument is since the SBC is not a local church the usual arguments would not be germane to females in major denominational positions. Look for a female SBC president by 2020. Following that will be the acceptance of female pastors. Following that, the SBC will simply be another mainline liberal denomination.
I predict that this issue will split the SBC like an overly ripe watermelon.
Dr. Dwight McKissic, black senior pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas, admits to speaking in tongues during devotional times and is pushing very hard for Blacks and women in places of leadership in the SBC. He is campaigning to bring more women into SBC leadership and declared, “If I thought Beth Moore would accept the nomination or be agreeable to being nominated, because of her qualifications and the current context the SBC finds itself in, I would nominate her for SBC president.” Sure, that’s all the struggling denomination needs—a woman whom God speaks to directly!
Beth’s website boasts, “God recently took me into seclusion for a week and placed these instructions before me…I feel I have never been given a more serious assignment for a single night gathering in my ministry…He [God] instructed me to listen carefully as I have ever listened and He would tell me the Scriptures and the sequence to place on the screens…Our deepest desire here is that God would grace us with His presence.”
I will be very surprised if Moore does not become a major SBC leader in the next few years. After all, she’s a better preacher than many SBC and independent Baptist pastors I’ve heard! However, ability is not the criteria. The Scripture is and that’s why the convention has all these problems—a low view of the Word of God by many leaders.
Not to be dismissed is the problems that follow Dr. Russell Moore, leader of the SBC’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC). It seems Moore habitually rises each morning planning to poke a sharp stick in the eye of every Conservative in the convention. Moore is soft on homosexuality, immigration (supporting Soros-financed groups), and was an early “Never Trumper.”
The SBC’s new president, North Carolina megachurch pastor J. D. Greear, represents a definite rejection of the much touted “conservative takeover” started in 1979 by Judge Paul Pressler and Dr. Paige Patterson, former president of the SBC. The SBC overwhelmingly (almost 70%) chose Greear who is soft on homosexuality and almost everything else. He was chosen over an older Ken Hemphill, former president at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Greear’s North Carolina church gives $500,000 per year to the SBC Cooperative Program! He is the new face of Southern Baptists replacing Page Patterson, Judge Pressler, and Company. The old hardliners are out and the “Young Turks” are in.
Patterson was fired as President of Southwestern Baptist Seminary and was dumped as the SBC keynote speaker in Dallas recently. He has not reacted toward women the way his leftist brethren wanted him to do. Pressler has been accused of molesting or raping at least three boys followed by a cover-up by Patterson.
The Pressler accusations go back decades so I don’t know if he is a pervert or not. If the charges turn out to be true, then there should be a double hanging. Pressler and Bill Clinton should hang from the same tree.
As to Patterson’s guilt, it seems the charges against him are contrived or overblown or maybe totally false. The main accusation against him seems to be the advice he has given to abused women. He suggested they go slow about leaving their husband. I do to. Is the abuse physical abuse or is it yelling at her and putting her down? I would tell my daughters, leave him immediately if he gets physical.
But all these machinations seem to be normal if not very religious but all is fair in love and denominational politics. And make no mistake, this was payback against the conservatives who took over the seminaries and convention decades ago.
Greear ridiculed Dr. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist in Dallas who had Roman Catholic Sean Hannity of Fox News as a guest in a Sunday morning service. Greear said, “I think very quickly after I had grown a little disillusioned with the SBC, I found out that every other network I started to get in, there was like: They have crazy uncles in here too.”
Robert Jeffress, a crazy uncle! I am not Southern Baptist (but some of my best friends are) and I would not have invited Hannity for a church service but that is Jeffress’ business and the business of First Baptist. No one else. And nothing Jeffress has done even remotely qualifies him being called a crazy uncle.
In a message delivered in 2014, the youthful Greear said we have to “love our gay neighbor more than we love our position on sexual morality” which means you must surrender what the Bible teaches to appear loving and compassionate to the homosexual crowd. He added more gas to the fire by adding, “I cannot compromise, but I love you more than I love being right.” He is clearly saying that in a choice between loving (or more correctly, appearing to love) a homosexual and the Bible truth on the issue, he will reject the Bible truth and go with his feel-good position on perversion.
There is mass confusion about love that is destroying not only churches but homosexuals! One cannot have true love without truth. It is not love to permit a homosexual to believe that God looks upon his sin as benign or innocent. Like fornication and gluttony, perversion is wicked. For a minister of the Gospel to tell a homosexual that his perversion is not sinful is itself a perversion of truth.
The new President of the SBC may not qualify as a crazy uncle but he might as a crazy nephew!
The Apostle Paul commands us to “speak the truth in love.” Preachers who speak of “love” without truth are not lovers. One must know the truth and abide in the truth as Paul wrote in John 8:31 “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
However, the SBC is not abiding in the truth. It has been skirting the truth for more than 50 years. While there are thousands of good, dedicated pastors in the convention, they have lost their viability, if not their voice and vote. I’m afraid in my lifetime the great SBC will be a dinosaur. Members and former members will longingly speak of the “old days” when there was excitement, enjoyment, expectation, and faithful exegesis in their church services. Now, there is a lot of noise in many churches.
The Southern Baptist Convention has cut loose its anchor and will continue to keep drifting out to sea with little hope of returning to solid ground. It will soon lose sight of land.
The demise of the SBC is one of the worst tragedies to befall America. Very sad.

Lifeway Christian Resources is the retail and publishing arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, known easily as the world’s largest retailer of heresy in the United States, if not the world. As we have thoroughly documented on this news site, Lifeway sells books by Anti-Trinitarians, Word-Faith and Prosperity teachers, New Age gurus, gay activists, mystics, Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholics. In fact, the vast majority of what the Southern Baptist retailer sells is contrary to the denomination’s statement of faith, the Southern Baptist Faith and Message, and much of their selection contains troubling theology that Southern Baptist pastors have to regularly teach against. Lifeway has a blog and podcast for women, from their Lifeway Women division, called (accurately), “Marked.” Yesterday, they promoted the wildly unorthodox and charismatic Hillsong prophetess, Christine Caine.
Marked is hosted by Mary Margaret West and Elizabeth Hyndman. West posted the podcast on the Lifeway site, and her bio says that she is a former “girls minister,” is a “Girls Ministry Specialist” for Lifeway and got her seminary degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Apparently, it’s possible to serve in those ministry positions and have a degree in ministry without ever having covered the basics of Christian theology. Had West been educated like any run-of-the-mill Baptist or Protestant should have been, she would know that Christine Caine is the theological equivalent of an infectious disease. If West loved girls, she wouldn’t expose them to Christine Caine.
West gave Caine’s bio on the podcast’s blog page:
Christine Caine is an Australian born, Greek blooded, lover of Jesus, activist, author and international speaker. She and her husband, Nick, founded the global anti-human trafficking organization, The A21 Campaign. They also founded Propel Women, an organization designed to activate women to fulfill their God-given passion, purpose, and potential. Christine is the author of six books including Unashamed. Her next book, Unexpected: Leave Fear Behind, Move Forward in Faith, Embrace the Adventure, released in May 2018.
We’ll provide a different bio for Caine.
Christine Caine got her start at Hillsong Church Australia, the seeker-friendly and worldwide mega cult founded by Word of Faith and Prosperity Gospel teacher, Brian Houston, who helped to cover up his father’s pedophilia. Hillsong might best be known for the music, attracting millions of young people to their catchy jingles who then get sucked into their heresies (this is called the “Arian Snare,” and is a millennia-old tactic of using seemingly innocuous music for nefarious purposes). In reality, Hillsong music is dangerous for the church. Caine, propelled by the Hillsong global campaign, dropped her pants with Hillsong founder, Bobby Houston (left), apparently demonstrating their familiarity and closeness. In reality, Caine is a product of the dangerous Hillsong church.
Hillsong, by the way, is known for its promotion of LGBT worship leaders, its promotion of queer theology like that held to by Jen Hatmaker, naked cowboys dancing on stage at their women’s events (the naked cowboy was a Hillsong pastor), a sleazy burlesque Christmas program (multiple ones, in fact), and its generalized worldliness. Hillsong is a lascivious, devious, and ungodly plague of locusts crossing land and sea making converts twice the sons of hell. Hillsong is not known for raising up godly young men and women or theologians who are committed to the inerrancy and sufficiency of the Word of God. Hillsong is known for raising up false converts like Justin Beiber and other celebrities who dig the music, lights, and laser shows but who bear no more fruit in keeping with repentance than before they ever began traveling with the Australian band of religious gypsies.
Nowhere on the planet do Hillsong followers have the reputation of being theologically serious, doctrinally sincere, or Biblically astute. They have the reputation for being among the most immature, Scripturally ignorant, and carnal people in the history of the world to ever call themselves Christians.
Caine considers Joyce Meyer one of her best friends, chief mentor, and “spiritual mother.” Together, they hold to the “little god theology” and Word-Faith heresies, that – like God – you can create destinies and demand temporal blessings simply by decreeing and declaring them into existence. They hold that Jesus died on the cross to give you possessions, wealth and health, there for the taking if you have enough faith and confess it positively. The heresy began (as best we can tell) with E.W. Kenyon, but has been most popularized by Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, and the branch of prosperity evangelists you will see on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Lately, Caine has taken for herself the title of “activist,” fully promoting egalitarianism and Social Justice warrioring, meaning that she specializes in two deviations from the Gospel – both Social Gospel and Prosperity Gospel – an impressive feat, indeed.
On top of these issues, Caine regularly recalls precise words that she says God has spoken to her, putting herself into the Biblical class of prophet, having supposedly heard direct, divine revelation from God. She is, in every sense of the word, a prophetess.
Now, the question to answer is why Thom Rainer, CEO of Lifeway, Mary Margaret West of Lifeway Women, or the four million Southern Baptists who actually exist (the other reported ten million are entirely MIA) think that Southern Baptist women and girls need to be exposed to Christine Caine.
  1. Is Lifeway Women promoting Christine Caine because they think she has valuable things to say? If so, what are those valuable things?
  2. Is Lifeway Women promoting Christine Caine because of the seriousness or soundness of her doctrine? If not, then for what other reason would they promote her?
This is perhaps some of the best practical evidence for why men – and not women – should be leading women. I genuinely don’t think the vast majority of Christian men would look at Christine Caine, study her for more than a few moments, and consider her much more than chaff. Women, it seems, are particularly susceptible to precisely what the Bible says they are susceptible, and that is false teaching that appeals to their senses and passions, invading households and capturing weak women (2 Timothy 3:6).
In the meantime, the name of Lifeway Women’s podcast, “Marked,” is apropos…
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. – Romans 16:17

Even Catholics Notice Southern Baptists 

Compromise on LGBT

SEE:; republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
LifeSite News is a Roman Catholic press outlet, and the following article was written by Brian Camenker and posted there first
 July 13, 2018 (Mass Resistance) – In April 2017, Rev. Tom Littleton of Alabama gave a chilling talk on “How the LGBT movement is infiltrating conservative churches” at the MassResistance Citizen Action Conference in Austin, TX. For over a decade, he pointed out, the national LGBT movement has been funding a multi-million-dollar under-the-radar subversive campaign in Southern states to push the homosexual movement into conservative Christian churches. And they’ve been shockingly successful.
But an even bigger goal has been to infiltrate and subvert the overall Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), the largest Christian denomination in the South and the second largest in North America (after the Catholic Church). This year that goal has become frighteningly closer to reality. The events surrounding the 2018 Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting, held June 12-13 in Dallas, shocked many conservatives.

Events surrounding the 2018 SBC annual meeting
Purging of Dr. Paige Patterson. A few weeks before the SBC annual meeting, the de facto conservative leader of the Southern Baptist movement, Dr. Paige Patterson, was abruptly fired from his position as president of the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary by its board. He was subsequently removed from all influence in the denomination, including his keynote speech at the annual meeting. This followed a hysteria-driven, well-orchestrated effort over several months to discredit him for alleged misconduct decades ago. It’s hard to know if the charges were legitimate. He was not given a hearing, nor was his side of the story even sought before judgment was made. Over two dozen major donors to the Seminary sent this well-documented, strongly worded letter expressing their disgust at the corrupt and illegal way that Dr. Patterson was treated. But the board refused to reconsider their actions.
SBC elects new leader who is “accommodating” to homosexuality. At the annual meeting, the SBC overwhelmingly elected J.D. Greear, a moderate pastor who caters to millennials, to be the new president of the denomination. As Bryan Fischer of American Family Radio points out, Greear often goes out of his way to be accommodating to homosexuality in his messages. Greear has told his congregation to “love our gay neighbor more than we love our position on sexual morality” – which seems to many to be completely un-Biblical.
Powerful resolution on LGBT issues submitted at Convention.Dr. Robert Oscar Lopez is the leader of Texas MassResistance and a professor at the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth. As the Convention began,Dr. Lopez and a group of other Baptist Texas MassResistance activists submitted a powerful resolution on LGBT issues titled On Ministry and Counseling to Lead People from Homosexuality to Heterosexuality.
The resolution basically reiterated fairly standard Christian teaching on homosexuality: Among other things: No one is “born gay” and “cannot change”; To say “I am gay” is a rejection of God’s design. It states: “RESOLVED, the Southern Baptist Convention rejects as heresy any claims that God makes people homosexual…” It went on to say that reparative therapy and similar efforts to free a person from the grip of homosexuality should be supported by the SBC.
Resolution quashed by Convention leadership. Some “moderate” SBC leaders have been on record as opposing any kind of reparative therapy. The Convention adopted over a dozen left-leaning and Social Justice-type resolutions (on gun control, immigration, etc.). Lopez’s resolution was the only one submitted which addressed the LGBT movement’s push against orthodox Christianity. The Resolutions Committee refused to allow it to go to the floor for a vote, claiming that it needed “more clarification.” However, on the last day one of the Texas MassResistance activists was able to come to the podium to speak. He began to call for this resolution to be voted on, but the Chairman interrupted him and announced that the Convention time was over and adjourned the meeting!
Troubling “Revoice” Conference – ties to SBC? Another dangerous component of the LGBT movement’s war on Christianity is the upcoming “Revoice Conference”taking place in St. Louis on July 26-28. It is a slick, well-funded effort targeting Evangelical Christians, to encourage them to accept and embrace homosexuality into their religious life. The stated goal is: “Supporting, encouraging, and empowering gay, lesbian, same-sex-attracted, and other LGBT Christians so they can flourish while observing the historic, Christian doctrine of marriage and sexuality.” In other words, it is three days of expert training to equip LGBT activists and their allies to infiltrate Evangelical churches to normalize homosexuality and subvert the teachings of the Gospel. (In addition to all this, the organizers of “Revoice” have a similar conference in October targeting youth pastors to bring the LGBT agenda to church youth.)
Even more troubling is that a number of so-called conservative Southern Baptist Christian leaders have bought into the “Revoice” conference. This article, Trusted SBC and PCA Seminaries Producing LGBTQ Activists, is particularly jarring.
Rev. Tom Littleton forcefully thrown out of convention. Since last year’s MassResistance speech, Rev. Littleton has been prolific in exposing the LGBT agenda permeating the upper echelons of the Southern Baptist Convention. This has clearly angered the guilty parties and their allies. Rev. Littleton attended the SBC annual meeting as a member of the press (not as a church representative) specifically to find out about the ties between SBC leaders and the Revoice conference.
On the first day, June 12, Rev. Littleton caught up with two major SBC leaders, Russell Moore and Al Mohler. Moore denied any knowledge of Revoice (after being informed of it the previous day), and Mohler allowed him to ask some questions — but then their handlers quickly shooed him away. The following day, just before Moore’s question-and-answer session at the podium, Rev. Littleton was suddenly thrown out of the building by the police. Why is there so much secrecy around this issue? This is very disturbing to many conservatives in the church.

Emergency: Big Tech's Plot to Kill Free Speech Revealed

Online digital rights are in turmoil and we must act now

SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
The biggest and yet least talked about issue facing conservatives and Trump supporters heading into the mid-terms and the 2020 presidential elections is social media censorship and big tech’s efforts to rig elections by manipulating their algorithms.
In association with Mike Adams, Infowars has published a detailed master compendium on censorship that will serve as a roadmap for lawmakers and for President Trump as we begin the fight to return the battleground of ideas to a level playing field.
The original document is embedded below and should be read in full. What follows below is a brief summary of the major talking points of this document.
Slaves to the algorithm
Algorithms are the most pernicious form of censorship because the target cannot conclusively prove they are being censored yet experience the impact of censorship anyway.
As Robert Epstein has documented, “Google’s search algorithm can easily shift the voting preferences of undecided voters by 20 percent or more—up to 80 percent in some demographic groups—with virtually no one knowing they are being manipulated.”
Epstein asserts that Google has the power to flip over 25% of elections worldwide and that “The search giant’s algorithms are manipulating people every minute of every day.”
By favoring certain search results over others, Epstein and his team discovered that Google could, “boost the proportion of people who favored any candidate by between 37 and 63 percent after just one search session.”
“More alarmingly, we also demonstrated this shift with real voters during an actual electoral campaign—in an experiment conducted with more than 2,000 eligible, undecided voters throughout India during the 2014 Lok Sabha election there—the largest democratic election in history, with more than 800 million eligible voters and 480 million votes ultimately cast. Even here, with real voters who were highly familiar with the candidates and who were being bombarded with campaign rhetoric every day, we showed that search rankings could boost the proportion of people favoring any candidate by more than 20 percent—more than 60 percent in some demographic groups.”
In other words, it’s entirely possible that Google determined the winner of the largest democratic election in history and could do so over and over again.
During its back and forth conversation with CNN, Facebook admitted that it artificially demotes Infowars content to censor our reach.
“We work hard to find the right balance between encouraging free expression and promoting a safe and authentic community, and we believe that down-ranking inauthentic content strikes that balance,” said Facebook spokeswoman Lauren Svensson. “In other words, we allow people to post it as a form of expression, but we’re not going to show it at the top of News Feed.”
As Mike Adams’ master report documents, Facebook has already de-platformed countless prominent natural health and conservative political channels.
Google intensifies its crackdown
Over the course of the last year, we have also noticed a clear change in Google’s search results in which mainstream media articles that denigrate Infowars appear well above Infowars in search results, even when one specifically searches for an exact headline from Infowars.
Google is already directing teams of employees to flag content that is deemed “upsetting” or “offensive” and bury such websites in order to “improve the quality of its search results”.
“The new “upsetting-offensive” flag instructs quality raters to “flag to all web results that contain upsetting or offensive content from the perspective of users in your locale, even if the result satisfies the user intent,” according to the Associated Press.
One of the examples cited that would get flagged is a website that criticizes the religion of Islam.
Google-owned YouTube has also deliberately ranked legacy media-produced videos above independently produced videos about major news events, even when the independently produced videos are more popular.
As we reported in February, Robert Thompson, CEO of News Corp., the publishing arm of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, brazenly admitted that big corporations are pushing for the likes of Google and Facebook to censor alternative media outlets so that News Corp-owned publications can make more money.
Thompson complained that “misinformation” is being promoted at the expense of media properties such as the Wall Street Journal (which just happens to be owned by News Corp).
“The potential returns for our journalism would be far higher in a less chaotic, less debased digital environment,” he asserted, acknowledging the financial incentive behind censorship.
The tyranny of partisan “fact checkers”
Google has also hired so-called “fact checkers” from the Southern Poverty Law Center to police content on YouTube. The SPLC is a hyper-partisan left-wing organization whose business model revolves almost exclusively around fanning the flames of hysteria about “hate speech” and defaming good people as extremists.
Tucker slams Google for allowing “wholly discredited hate group” the Southern Poverty Law Center to censor content.
As we have previously documented, another fact checker being used by Google,, presents itself as a non-partisan outfit, yet has proven itself to be a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party and the left on numerous occasions.
Snopes previously tried to “debunk” claims that the New York Times had colluded with Clinton’s campaign by warning them in advance about potentially negative stories that were about to be published, despite Wikileaks emails proving this to be true on two separate occasions.
As the Daily Caller reported, Kim Lacapria, Snopes’ main political “fact checker,” describes herself as “openly left-leaning” and a liberal. She has previously equated Tea Party conservatives with jihadists.
In December 2016, an investigative report revealed how Snopes was accused of using company money to pay for prostitutes.
Snopes’ obvious far-left bias is genuinely disconcerting given that it is being used by the likes of Google and Facebook as a supposedly independent “fact checker” to combat “fake news” online.
As Mike Adams explains, “What Robert Mueller accused the Russians of doing—interfering with U.S. elections—is actually being carried out right now by tech giants, the establishment media and third-party fact-checkers.”
CNN lobbies social media giants to shut down Infowars
Not content with seeing Infowars be disabled in terms of being downranked by algorithms, CNN, along with a media echo chamber that amplifies their narratives, has openly lobbied both Google-owned YouTube and Facebook to shut down Infowars.
Earlier this year, CNN repeatedly contacted YouTube in an attempt to have our channel closed down because we challenged the gun control narrative that emerged after the Parkland school shooting.
At one point, Infowars was one strike away from losing its YouTube presence and being terminated on the platform forever.
After failing to trigger the deletion of our YouTube channel, CNN’s senior media reporter Oliver Darcy re-appeared last week, this time attempting to lobby Facebook to shut down Infowars under the excuse of combating “fake news”.
Darcy’s zeal to silence Infowars was so persistent that he eventually forced Facebook to back themselves into a corner and admit that they supported free speech, which is quite the commitment for a company that has been so aggressive in policing the content on its platform.
The fact that an international media brand with vast resources like CNN would direct its journalists to launch a campaign to shut down a smaller competitor is not only chilling, it smacks of total desperation.
In Russia or Turkey, the government shuts down media outlets. In the United States, CNN apparently thinks that’s its role.
The fallacy of fake news
While the legacy media routinely publishes misleading, harmful and downright duplicitous news with wanton abandon, the “fake news” narrative was amplified after the election as a means of discrediting and de-legitimizing the presidency of Donald Trump and populist movements across Europe.
Much like the term “post-truth world,” fake news is a contrived moral panic created by elites to deflect from the fact they are increasingly unable to manufacture consent.
A major Stanford University study found that “even the most widely circulated fake news stories were seen by only a small fraction of Americans,” and that the most widely believed fake news stories were those that benefited Hillary Clinton.
Fake news had virtually no impact on the election, but the establishment media weaponized the term as part of an agenda to silence and censor voices of dissent, including media platforms, that had opposed Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
It is completely hilarious to realize that the legacy media created the contrived “fake news” hysteria but thanks to Trump and their own malicious agenda, it just ended up defining them. According to an April poll by Monmouth University Polling Institute, 77 percent of Americans believe that the traditional media is guilty of fake news.
In a 2017 CNN opinion piece written by Hossein Derakhshan and Claire Wardle, who are affiliated with the globalist Council of Europe, the authors argued that the term “fake news” had “become meaningless” and lost its power because politicians (primarily Donald Trump) hijacked it as a way to “undermine” the media establishment.
The authors decried the fact that many people now believe the mainstream media peddles “fabricated stories” and that information monopolies are being challenged by the ability for “anyone in the world” to have a platform.
As Sharyl Attkisson documents in her presentation below, the attempt to focus America’s attention on the idea of “fake news” was itself a propaganda effort.
Fake news is a baseless conspiracy theory invented by elites as an excuse to explain why their arguments no longer resonate with a majority of people.
The master document created by Mike Adams explains some of the solutions to these problems – real steps that can be implemented very quickly to turn the tide and return the Internet and social media to a level playing field.
They include;
1) Declaring the dominant online platforms to be “public commons” communication infrastructure to protect free speech.
2) Outlawing the censoring of content based on “political views” or “unpopular views”.
3) Requiring social media platforms to make transparent all their algorithms and requiring platforms to disclose down-ranking content policies
4) Requiring complete transparency on all reasoning for shadow bans, content bans and account bans.
All of these measures and more could be introduced in a special Online Digital Rights bill that could be passed and signed into law by President Trump.
“Google, Facebook, YouTube, CNN and even the ACLU are all conspiring to defraud the United States of America by silencing conservative voices, en masse, in the runup to a critical election that may decide the fate of our nation,” writes Adams.
We are running out of time. The mid-term elections are just months away. Every day that goes by without these fundamental problems being addressed, the state of online free speech becomes ever more precarious.
We must act now before it’s too late.

The Lee County, Virginia, school board has unanimously approved a proposal that would pay for the arming and training of school teachers in the county.
“The only way to fight a gun if somebody comes through these doors with a gun to shoot our students, is with another gun,” says Michael Kidwell, Lee County School Board chairman.
The vote, which took place Thursday night, makes Lee the first of the Old Dominion’s 95 counties to pursue this path toward protecting its students from armed violence.
According to reports in the local media, teachers will begin receiving their weapons and their training in their use as early as this fall.
The measure met with the approval of the public, as well, according to WJHL TV in Johnson City, Tennessee, a town on the border of Tennessee and Virginia.
“At least it gives us a chance. If we sat there and did nothing, I couldn’t sleep at night. At least we’re trying to do something,” says school board member Rob Hines, the TV news station reports.
There are some in the school district who worry that an increase in the number of weapons will result in an increase in the number of gun-related incidents.
For their part, the school board responds that arming teachers is a fiscally sound plan, cheaper than alternatives such as on-campus resource officers or metal detectors.
Not surprisingly, several teachers have stepped forward, volunteering to be the first to carry a gun at school.
Here’s the story from WJHL:
Many Lee County teachers have already volunteered to be considered for the role of being armed at their school. One former teacher tells News Channel 11 that most teachers would be willing to go face-to-face with a gunman if it meant saving one of their students.
“Sooner or later, it could happen. And like some of the board members said tonight, we need to be prepared if it does,” says Ronald Earley, former Lee County schools teacher and principal.
While there is, as indicated above, widespread support for training and arming teachers, the solution is statist, at the end of the day.
Why must the answer to the tragedy of school shootings be planned and executed by government? Why can’t the people, exercising their natural right of self-defense, choose to carry or not to carry arms? Why must government insinuate itself into every problem, promoting itself as the source of all solutions?
This is the precise point made by Tom Mullen writing for Foundation for Economic Education (FEE):
The conservative answer to liberal prohibition (oxymoron?) is to “arm and train the teachers.” While no one has come out and suggested mandating teachers carry firearms or be trained in using them, every suggestion seems to suggest “we” (i.e., the government) need to do the arming and training.
Here’s a little newsflash for both sides: the teachers are already armed.
It’s not a matter of arming teachers, but rather to cease disarming them when they report to work.
No, not every teacher carries firearms and perhaps not as high a percentage of teachers do so as the percentage of the general population that carries. But there are over three million teachers in public schools and some percentage of them have concealed carry permits. It would be unlikely that there aren’t at least some members of every faculty in America that have a concealed carry permit.
And there we have it. As “conservatives” and certainly as constitutionalists, we believe the answer to all of society’s ills — economic and social — lies in the power of the people to act in ways conducive to their own safety and their own liberty.
Arming teachers is better than nothing, but removing government from the equation is the only constitutional and free-market solution.


Guys often ask me how to ‘get their wives onboard’ with firearms. Whether their wives have had bad experiences with guns (someone committed suicide, was raped, killed, or accidentally shot), believe firearms are inherently evil, think guns are unnecessary, or think that a gun in the house may endanger the family more than save it — I feel as if I’ve ‘heard it all’. My first advice to husbands is to resist the temptation to be a goon and actually listen to your wife’s concerns with sensitivity. My advice to the wives…well that’s what this video is about!

Gabby Giffords

Giffords Law Center and Everytown For Gun Safety filed their own opposition to the injunction motion, arguing among other things that standard capacity magazines are best suited for military use.

New Jersey – ( July 11, 2018. ANJRPC’s federal lawsuit to overturn Governor Murphy’s firearms magazine ban is starting to pick up speed. There has been a flurry of activity since the court scheduled an expedited hearing on Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs’s request for an injunction (to halt enforcement of the ban until the case is decided).
The State of New Jersey was first to oppose the injunction motion, arguing among other things that the newly banned magazines are “dangerous and unusual weapons” not protected by the Second Amendment, which pose a danger to the public even in the hands of law-abiding citizens. The State also argues that the banned magazines are not needed for self-defense, but are “perfectly suited for illicit use.”
“Claiming that banned magazines are not needed for self-defense while simultaneously exempting their use for the protection of lawmakers is outrageous and the height of hypocrisy,” said ANJRPC Executive Director Scott Bach. “This elitist double standard is irrational, indefensible, and shows the utter contempt New Jersey has for its ‘subjects,’” said Bach.
Piling onto the State’s papers, the Giffords Law Center and Everytown For Gun Safety filed their own opposition to the injunction motion, arguing among other things that standard capacity magazines are best suited for military use, that NJ’s prior regulation of magazine capacity for several decades makes the new ban presumptively valid, and that the ban will make mass shooting incidents “less lethal.”
On July 9, Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs ripped all of these arguments to shreds in a reply brief filed in the case.

This case was filed in cooperation with the National Rifle Association. “We thank the NRA for its incredible support and guidance, which made this aggressive lawsuit challenging the magazine ban possible,” said Bach.

This entire Muslim migrant enterprise was sold to Europeans with the claim that the migrants would replace Europe’s aging workforce. Instead, this. Non-Muslims paying for the upkeep of Muslims is a Qur’anic dictate:
“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).
The caliph Umar said the jizya payments from the dhimmis were the source of the Muslims’ livelihood:
“Narrated Juwairiya bin Qudama at-Tamimi: We said to `Umar bin Al-Khattab, ‘O Chief of the believers! Advise us.’ He said, ‘I advise you to fulfill Allah’s Convention (made with the Dhimmis) as it is the convention of your Prophet and the source of the livelihood of your dependents (i.e. the taxes from the Dhimmis.)’” (Bukhari 4.53.388)
Anjem Choudary said in February 2013:
“We are on Jihad Seekers Allowance, We take the Jizya (protection money paid to Muslims by non-Muslims) which is ours anyway. The normal situation is to take money from the Kafir (non-Muslim), isn’t it? So this is normal situation. They give us the money. You work, give us the money. Allah Akbar, we take the money. Hopefully there is no one from the DSS (Department of Social Security) listening. Ah, but you see people will say you are not working. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the Kuffar (non-Muslim) So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”
“It takes twelve Germans to work and pay taxes in order to fund the cost of just one migrant,” Voice of Europe, July 12, 2018:
One of the biggest secrets in Europe is the real cost of migration and especially the cost of one migrant. Our attention was brought to an article from Germany, in which the costs are calculated. The results are shocking.
Around 1.7 million people applied for asylum in Germany since 2014, but anyone who asks the government for the costs will be sent into a labyrinth of statistics and numbers, the German author writes….
Citing Development Minister Gerd Müller, one million refugees cost the German government, states and municipalities around 30 billion euros a year.
To put it another way: assuming Minister Müller’s calculation, each person seeking protection in Germany costs 30,000 euros per year or 2,500 euros per month.
This corresponds to the tax burden of twelve average earners (3,000 euros per month, tax class III). For an unaccompanied juvenile migrant the costs can go up to 5,000 euros per month, the author writes.
But the numbers for the ‘average refugee or migrant’ could be even higher – because of the many new long-term unemployed….

The “Wild Goose Festival” is a four-day extravaganza of music, interactive story-telling, “reconciliation yoga,’” and “progressive Christian mysticism.” In other words, is a big, gay, fake-Christian Woodstock.
Taking place July 12-15, the Wild Goose festival boasts a whole gaggle of evangelical and gay-affirming speakers that include Jen Hatmaker, Tony Campolo, Frank Schaeffer, Shane Claiborne, and Brian McLaren. It is being held in Hot Springs, North Carolina as reported by Juicey Ecumenism,  The Institute of Religion and Democracy blog.
According to their press release dated July 12, 2018:
This year’s “Wild Goose” festival will feature Jen Hatmaker, an Evangelical author who liberalized her views on same-sex marriage, self-described “Christian-Atheist” Frank Schaeffer, “progressive Christian mystic” and United Methodist pastor Roger Wolsey, among other “spiritually non-traditional” speakers. Breakout sessions will highlight “Queerology,” “Reproductive Justice is…,” and “A Practical Guide to Getting Elected.”
“Wild Goose” is loosely patterned on Great Britain’s Greenbelt festival, Burning Man, Lightning in a Bottle, and SXSW.
IRD Evangelical Program Director Chelsen Vicari commented:
Wild Goose is a bizarre attempt to refashion Christianity for disgruntled Progressive Christians attracted to postmodern sexual relativism, mysticism, and New Age. [It] pushes against the boundaries of orthodox Christianity by experimenting with mysticism and vague spirituality. Sadly, some disillusioned young Evangelicals find this distorted version of Christianity alluring.
She continued:
Of all the progressive Christian events I’ve monitored on behalf of the Institute on Religion and Democracy, Wild Goose is the most troubling in my view. But the truth is no matter how modern the meditation practices or interactive the story-telling, progressive Christianity remains unfashionable as its leading denominations continue in decline.
[Editor’s Note: A previous version of this article mistakenly reported that The Institute of Religion and Democracy was hosting the Wild Goose Festival. The article has been corrected to reflect that it was a press release reporting on the Wild Goose Festival event.]
