Let’s just cut to the chase. The pope and the Catholic Church are sinful. The Vatican 
is an idolatrous city that attempts to usurp the throne of Christ and the pope believes 
he speaks on behalf of Christ on Earth.
Recently, the pope called for global wealth redistribution stating that tax cuts for the wealthy are sinful. In a February 5 address, the pope says,
If there is extreme poverty in the midst of wealth – also extreme wealth – it is because we have allowed the gap to widen to become the largest in history. These are almost official data: the 50 richest people in the world have an equity equivalent to 2.2 billion dollars. Those fifty people alone could finance the medical care and education of every poor child in the world, whether through taxes, philanthropic initiatives or both. Those fifty people could save millions of lives every year.
The globalization of indifference have called “inaction”. Saint John Paul II called it: structures of sin . Such structures find an atmosphere conducive to their expansion every time the common good is reduced or limited to certain sectors or, in the case that brings us together, when the economy and finance become an end in themselves. It is the idolatry of money, greed and speculation.
What’s interesting is that the pope fails to mention in this address the “extreme wealth” that the Vatican holds on to. In fact, the Vatican could eliminate world hunger and finance the medical care and education of every poor child in the world. While the pope complains that the 50 richest people in the world have about 2.2 billion that could finance these things, the Vatican alone is estimated to be worth between 10 and 15 billion. I hear they sent a handful of masks to China though.

At last year’s Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) conference, many were upset at the 
passing of Resolution 9 which solidified the denomination’s support for a neo-Marxist 
worldview including Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality. The SBC has long 
departed the path of conservative, biblical ideology and has embraced — thanks to 
Russell Moore and the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) — a philosophy 
of social activism primarily rooted in secular thought.
The culture of today is one that is hell-bent on the destruction of Western civilization, national sovereignty, and individualism. Evangelicals, and Southern Baptists, in particular, have embraced this worldview yet cloaked it in Christian language so as to give it the appearance of a biblical idea — though it is not. One example of this is the SBC’s Resolution 9 on Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality.
This resolution asserts that these ideologies are useful in analyzing data “gaining insights” in social and racial dynamics. While the resolution does acknowledge that these ideologies have their roots in a secular worldview, conservatives are growing increasingly concerned with their validation marking them as “incompatible” with Christianity.
Tom Ascol of Founders Ministries has been leading the charge to have this resolution rescinded at the next meeting in Orlando in June. However, those Southern Baptists who adopted the resolution plan to double down on support for it.
Q&A article came out in the Baptist Press — the SBC’s propaganda outlet — yesterday which was written by members the 2019 Resolutions Committee which downplayed the concerns that conservatives have over the Resolution. In the article, they answer the question, “Why the mention of analytical tools?” in reference to the Resolution legitimizing the use of neo-Marxist philosophy as useful. They write, 
We used analytical tools to distinguish between the worldview of CRT/I’s creators and the concepts that are used from these theories by some Christians. We share the concerns about the foundation, worldview and various applications of CRT/I. However, not every observation from these theories is wrong, sinful or unhelpful.
In limited ways, insights from these theories may show us “what is” when it comes to the social dynamics people experience and help us see more robustly the nature of — as one SBC leader has described it — “racial injustice and systemic wrongs” throughout our cultural landscape. We don’t believe that a willingness to listen and learn undermines the Gospel. We are firmly committed to relying only on biblical theology for understanding “how things ought to be” and to trust only in the sufficiency of the Gospel to bring about God’s redemptive plan in our world.
But the problem is that these “theories” themselves cannot be separated from the worldview of the creators of these philosophies because they are grounded squarely in a denial of the Christian worldview. These theories — in and of themselves — deny such biblical concepts as individual responsibility and instead place the guilt of sin on systems, groups of people, and classes rather than on the one who committed the sin.
Critical Race Theory cannot, in any way, be considered biblical and must be rejected by Southern Baptists if they wish to remain true to the Scriptures and further, those who embrace such worldviews ought to be placed under church discipline and purged from the ranks of Christianity. There are no two ways about it. If the SBC does not rescind this resolution, they may as well announce their apostasy publicly like any other liberal denomination. And those who brought this resolution to the table for consideration ought to be fired from their seminaries and disqualified as pastors in SBC churches.
Southern Baptist evangelist Thomas Littleton of Alabama joins The New American magazine's Alex Newman to discuss the "Evangelical Deep State." Among other topics, they talk about how false doctrines and dangerous heresies--especially on homosexuality and transgenderism (LGBT), as well as Social Justice, Critical Race Theory, and Cultural Marxism--are infiltrating even conservative evangelical churches in America. Part of it is funding from Deep State globalists hostile to the church and the Bible, and part of it is a lack of discernment among pastors and Christian leaders. Alex and Tom discuss the Southern Baptist Convention, the Presbyterian Church, and others. Tom names Albert Mohler as one of the key figures facilitating this.

Drag Queen Story Hour is an epidemic of sexual perverts and crossdressers who 
are grooming children around the nation in public libraries. However, now the epidemic 
is expanding and elementary schools are now sending first-graders to be indoctrinated 
into the LGBTQ lifestyle as part of its curriculum.
An email was sent to the families of Primary School 118, also known as Maurice Sendak Community School in Brooklyn, NY announcing the school’s intention to send their children to these in-school sexually aberrant indoctrination camps.
The school, which is taxpayer-funded, is led by principal Elizabeth Garraway and was recruited, according to her bio on the school’s website, because she is a “strong advocate for the value of diversity.”
The email reads,
Dear Families,
In an effort to continue to strengthen and enhance inclusiveness and diversity in our school, the first grade will be taking part in “Drag Queen Story Hour!” This program is run by the Brooklyn Public Library and has been a hit at the library and other local public schools. We had Drag Queen Story Hour the past few years at PS118 and the 1st graders LOVED IT! You can even read about it in the NY Times if you click on the link below. Drag Queen Story Hour is run by a drag queen who will visit our school on Monday, February 24th. She will read to the students, all while teaching into ideas of inclusiveness, gender fluidity and gender roles, family structures, acceptance, empathy, and individuality.
Your child will receive a field trip form in their red folder for payment of this experience. Payment is $6. I am also attaching a flyer about Drag Queen Story Hour to this email for you to read and garner more information.
We are so excited to bring this to our classrooms. I know the children will learn a lot and enjoy it as much as they did last year. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Below is a screenshot of the email that was sent to families of the school. The event will be held on Monday, February 24, 2020.
This is not the first time this school has done this. In 2019, the school also hosted a Drag Queen Story Hour featuring these sexual deviants. One first grade teacher at the school, Alexis Hernandez, commented,
What an amazing way to teach individuality, empathy, and acceptance! Drag Queen Story Hour gave my first graders a fun and interactive platform to talk and think about social and emotional issues like acceptance, being yourself, and loving who you are. Through books, songs, arts and crafts, and movement activities, they explored these issues and had an amazing time doing it! During our debrief after DQSH, they were preaching the incredible lessons they had learned, like “It’s ok to be different,” and “There’s no such thing as ‘boy’ things or ‘girl’ things.” I was proud to be able to have DQSH at my school and will definitely be planning another story hour for next year!
One can only imagine what kind of trauma this teacher experienced as a child to be so willing to pass on her mental instability to other vulnerable children. The entire movement is a sickness that needs to be treated. Below are screen grabs of the previous perverted event held at Maurice Sendak.
Other schools, including preschools, middle schools, and elementary schools that partake in the Drag Queen Story Hour in New York City, according to the event’s website, include,

Christians believe that homosexuality is sinful and, according to the Constitution of 
the United States, religious beliefs are supposed to be protected. Nonetheless, 
several states have already passed laws making it illegal for people struggling with 
unwanted same-sex attraction to seek help from Christian resources — 
including Christian counselors.
Dubbing the practice “conversion therapy,” LGBTQ activists have branded Christian counseling as “harmful” and “barbaric.” On the contrary, Christians believe the Scriptures actually speak to sinful lusts and issue a call to turn from them and turn to Christ.
However, a growing sect of progressive Evangelicals are also turning against the practice — including Al Mohler and Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention. Incidentally, they have deemed the idea that the Holy Spirit can change the hearts and minds of sinful people upon regeneration a lost cause and unworthy of attention.
In the wake of this affront against the work of the Holy Spirit, the practice is now being outlawed at an alarming pace and the State of Virginia appears to be next on the list of those who are banning the conversion therapy. Yesterday, the Virginia House overwhelmingly passed HB 386 which bans the practice for minors in the state and the Senate passed a similar bill on January 21.
Freedom of religion in this country is now a thing of the past. While radical leftists are fighting against the practice of Christian counseling for minors, these same people are up-in-arms screaming for the right to indoctrinate children into LGBTQ ideology in public schools while protecting the “rights” of drag queens to have access to preschool children in public libraries. Somehow, conversion therapy is “dangerous” and “barbaric” but perverted men dressed as women is safe and edifying.


 A look at Islam’s inferiority complex
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research 
Raymond Ibrahim, author most recently of Sword and Scimitar, is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
Muslims around the world are thrilled at the recent news: “Harvard University ranks the Koran as the best book on justice,” is the January 20, 2020 headline of a report published by Youm7, a popular Egyptian news site visited by millions of Arabic readers.  It writes (in translation):
The official website of the World Muslim Communities Council  said on social media that, after lengthy, scientific studies that closely examined the rules of justice contained in the Noble Koran, the American university of Harvard has ranked the Noble Koran as the best book on justice….  In its final evaluation, Harvard University’s Classification Committee cited verses from the Noble Koran which confirm that the Noble Koran is a book replete with the rules of human justice … and that Islam has no room for injustice but rather includes tolerance and respect for the other.
Several other leading news websites and newspapers—including Al Ahram, Egypt’s most widely circulated and state owned newspaper founded in 1875—carried the story, followed by all sorts of triumphant celebrations on social media.
But is it true?  Did Harvard make such a pronouncement?  No. The real story is that, back in 2012, a group of law students painted a number of historical quotes dealing with justice on the walls of a Harvard building.

Known as the “Words of Justice,” they consist of 33 quotes from a variety of thinkers and civilizations—including African, Chinese, European, and Hindu—from 600 BC to the present.  Among some of the more recognizable names and documents quoted are Cicero, Augustine, Aquinas, the Magna Carta, Benjamin Franklin, Immanuel Kant, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr.

Among these 33 quotes is one that is Islamic, derived from Koran:

O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just (4:135).

That’s it—the entire story.  There were no “lengthy, scientific studies,” nor “classification committees,” that led Harvard to announce that the Koran is the “best book on justice.”  Rather, one Islamic quote was deemed worthy of inclusion with 32 other non-Islamic quotations.
What to make of this shameful episode?  Why would Muslims fabricate such a story?  More to the point, why would they even care what infidel Harvard thinks in the first place?
For those in the know, the answer is simple: Muslims are ever and always looking for outside validation. Why?  Because a growing number of them have a nagging suspicion that their religion is not just.
Indeed, they need look no further than to the very same Koran chapter/sura (4, al-Nisa’, “the Women”) whence the much celebrated “justice” verse (4:135) was excerpted to encounter any number of decidedly unjust verses, including permission to sexually enslave—buy and sell—women (4:3), permission for husbands to beat their wives—since men are “superior” to women (4:34)—and so on.
Accordingly, what can be more reassuring than Western intellectual praise for Islam?
Consider this Arabic op-ed on Islam’s “inferiority complex” that I translated back in 2011.  Although its author, Khaled Montaser, an Egyptian intellectual, focuses on all the hoopla that erupts whenever a Westerner converts to Islam—whether in reality or not—the essence of his arguments perfectly apply to and shed light on this recent Harvard fiasco:
We Muslims have an inferiority complex and are terribly sensitive to the world, feeling that our Islamic religion needs constant, practically daily, confirmation by way of Europeans and Americans converting to Islam. What rapturous joy takes us when a European or American announces their [conversion to] Islam—proof that we are in a constant state of fear, alarm, and chronic anticipation for Western validation or American confirmation that our religion is “okay.”.…  And we pound our drums and blow our horns [in triumph] and drag the convert to our backwardness, so that he may stand with us at the back of the world’s line of laziness, [in the Muslim world] wherein no new scientific inventions have appeared in the last 500 years. Sometimes those who convert relocate to our countries—only to get on a small boat and escape on the high seas back to their own countries.
He goes on to discuss how the Arab world—in the guise of “our media and Internet sites … our writers and intellectuals”—exulted when it mistakenly thought that the German writer Henryk Broder had accepted Islam, based on sarcastic remarks he had made: “but we are a people incapable of comprehending sarcasm, since it requires a bit of thinking and intellectualizing. And we read with great speed and a hopeful eye, not an eye for truth or reality.”  Montaser continues:
How come the Buddhists don’t hold the festivities we do for those who convert to their religion? And some of these converts are much more famous than Broder. Did you know that Richard Gere, Steven Seagal, Harrison Ford—among Hollywood’s most famous actors—converted to Buddhism? What did the Buddhist countries of Asia do regarding these celebrities? What did the Buddhists in China and Japan do?  Did they dance and sing praise and march out in the streets, or did they accept these people’s entrance into Buddhism as a mere matter of free conviction?...  It is sufficient for the Buddhists that these celebrities purchase their nations’ electronic goods—without any beggary or enticements.
A closing thought: Muslim excitement over one small—and often fraudulent—compliment finds a parallel in the Western establishment’s behavior: government, media, and academia are all in the habit of highlighting and fixating over one small (and often fraudulent) compliment to Islam—such as the “Andalusian Paradise” (a myth)—while suppressing Islam’s numerous shortcomings.
And it’s a reminder that, instead of flattering Islam, openly and honestly criticizing it—objectively, without rancor or hyperbole—is potentially one of the Western world’s most powerful, though largely untapped, strategies that could go a long way in neutralizing Islam, and without force.

If you think Bernie Sanders plan to tear apart the healthcare industry and impose socialized medicine on 300 million Americans is a good idea, you’re going to love his plan to take over the energy industry.
Sanders, who employs totalitarian communists as state organizers, as The New American has reported, wants to nationalize energy production and destroy the oil and gas industries.
The plan to Venezuelize the United States is laid out in detail on his website, but Sanders has been pushing it earnestly as he campaigns.
$16T Plan
The latest on the Sanders plan comes from Politico, which reports that Sanders might have “put nationalizing health insurance at the center of his presidential campaign, but his proposal to fight climate change also calls for a government takeover of a fundamental segment of the economy — electricity production.”
The plan would use existing Power Marketing Administrations, agencies within the Department of Energy used to sell generated power, relics of socialist Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s administration, to end private ownership of energy production with a maze of rules and regulations.
A low-end and completely unrealistically positive estimate shows it would take at least $16 trillion to get rid of fossil-fuel electricity generation and move to solar power, hydropower, and windmills. A close look at the nuts and bolts of such a plan indicates the real cost would dwarf the $16 trillion estimate.
Critics aren’t so sure wrecking the private production of electricity is a bright idea, and that whoever suggested it might well be something of a dim bulb, Politico reported:
“What the Sanders proposal would do is create an 800-pound federally owned power gorilla that would make it very hard for the existing generators to compete,” said Josh Freed, head of energy and climate policy at Third Way, a centrist think tank that opposes the Sanders plan. “I think a plan like this could turn off voters in large parts of the country. It would have challenges in Pennsylvania, Michigan — a lot of the states that are competitive for the election.”
The DetailsNot that a project being palpably ridiculous and doomed to fail ever stopped a collectivist from trying to implement it, particularly Soviet apologist Sanders.
The mindboggling plan’s main points are these, with the plan to nationalize energy production buried in the details:
• “Transform our energy system away from fossil fuels to 100 percent energy efficiency and sustainable energy by 2030 at the latest.”
• Add one more power marketing administration to the existing four to “build more than enough wind, solar, energy storage and geothermal power plants. We will spend $1.52 trillion on renewable energy and $852 billion to build energy storage capacity.”
• “We will end greed in our energy system. The renewable energy generated by the Green New Deal will be publicly owned, managed by the Federal Power Marketing Administrations, the Bureau of Reclamation and the Tennessee Valley Authority and sold to distribution utilities with a preference for public power districts, municipally- and cooperatively-owned utilities with democratic, public ownership, and other existing utilities that demonstrate a commitment to the public interest.”
• Spend “$526 billion on a modern, high-volt, underground, renewable, direct current, smart, electric transmission and distribution grid … [to] ensure our transition to 100 percent sustainable energy is safe and smooth.”
• Set aside “$2.18 trillion for sliding-scale grants for low- and moderate-income families and small businesses to invest in weatherizing and retrofitting their homes and businesses.”
• “Phase out the use of non-sustainable sources. This plan will stop the building of new nuclear power plants … [and] enact a moratorium on nuclear power plant license renewals in the United States to protect surrounding communities.”
• “Declare a climate emergency,” which is “an existential threat and we will do whatever it takes to confront it.”
• “Fully electrify and decarbonize our transportation sector. We will create a federal grant and zero-emission vehicle program to create a 100 percent renewable transportation sector. … Provide $2.09 trillion in grants to low- and moderate-income families and small businesses to trade in their fossil fuel-dependent vehicles for new electric vehicles.”
• “To ensure that no one is ever stranded without the ability to charge their vehicle, we will spend $85.6 billion building a national electric vehicle charging infrastructure.”
• Set aside “$407 billion in grants for states to help school districts and transit agencies replace all school and transit buses with electric buses.”
• Spend “$216 billion to replace all diesel tractor trailer trucks with fast-charging and long-range electric trucks.”
• Fund a “$607 billion investment in a regional high-speed rail system [that] would complete the vision of the Obama administration to develop high-speed intercity rail in the United States.”
• “Invest in decarbonizing the shipping and aviation industries as soon as possible. The science is clear that the entire global economy must decarbonize by 2050 at latest if we hope to stave off the worst impacts of climate change.”
Actually, the science isn’t “clear,” but anyway, Sanders has said, “We have all of 12 years to significantly cut carbon emissions or else they will be irreparable damage to the United States and countries all over the world.” That claims doesn’t square with his predicted date of 2050 for “the worst impacts of climate change.” Plus, China and India are building coal-fired power plants faster than similar plants are being removed elsewhere in the world, and Sanders doesn’t tell us how he will force those countries not to use their new power plants. (Hint: He won’t stop them, and carbon dioxide concentrations will continue to rise unabated.
And how he would force Americans to along with this patently insane idea.
His campaign staffers provided the answer: Gulags and execution for resisters and dissenters.

Two Republican senators announced a new phase of the probe into possible corruption by Hunter Biden a mere hour after President Trump was acquitted of the two articles of impeachment.
Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (Wis.) on Wednesday sent a letter to U.S. Secret Service Director James Murray in which they requested the travel records of Hunter Biden, the son of presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden.
In the letter, Grassley and Johnson said they are seeking “records of Hunter Biden’s travel while he was under U.S. Secret Service protection as they continue to investigate potential conflicts of interest to boost his business ventures in Ukraine and China.”
President Trump was impeached in December of last year for allegedly using military aid to Ukraine as leverage to pressure the country into investigating the Bidens’ business activities there.
While serving as vice president, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine if they did not fire the prosecutor who was investigating the natural gas company Burisma, where Hunter was working as a board member earning over $50,000 a month—despite his lack of relevant experience.
Biden boasted of the incident at a Council on Foreign Relations event:
I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a b***h, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.
Grassley and Johnson asked Murray to inform them of whether Hunter Biden used taxpayer-funded travel to conduct private business and to provide them with “a list of all dates and locations of travel, international and domestic, for Hunter Biden while he received a protective detail. In your response, please note whether his travel was on Air Force One or Two, or other government aircraft, as applicable and whether additional family members were present for each trip.”
The senators continued:
We write to request information about whether Hunter Biden used government-sponsored travel to help conduct private business, to include his work for Rosemont Seneca and related entities in China and Ukraine. In December of 2013, one month after Rosemont Senenca’s joint venture with Bohai Capital to form BHR, Hunter Biden reportedly flew aboard Air Force Two with then-Vice President Biden to China. While in China, he helped arrange for Jonathan Li, CEO of Bohai Capital, to “shake hands” with Vice President Biden. Afterward, Hunter Biden met with Li for reportedly a “social meeting.” After the China trip, BHR’s business license was approved. Then, in 2015, BHR joined with the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) to acquire Henniges, which was the “biggest Chinese investment into US automotive manufacturing assets to date.”
During last year’s House impeachment proceedings, a State Department employee testified that he had flagged the potential conflict of interest involving Hunter Biden’s business dealings, but was told not to bother the vice president’s office.
Although Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine were central to President Trump’s impeachment trial, Hunter was ultimately not brought in to testify. Democrats opposed calling the younger Biden as a witness. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said he would not be a “relevant” witness.
Ukrainian parliamentarian Andrey Derkach, with whom Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani has met, has claimed to have evidence showing that Joe Biden himself received $900,000 in lobbying fees from Burisma and that the money was funneled through the private equity firm Rosemont Seneca Partners, co-founded by Hunter Biden and Christopher Heinz, the stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry.
The former vice president’s son has also been accused by a Florida-based private investigation firm of being involved in a $156 million counterfeiting scheme. The allegation arose during a child support case involving Hunter Biden and his relation to a child born to Lunden Roberts, a former stripper. A DNA test established with “scientific certainty” that Hunter Biden is the child’s father. The 50-year-old ultimately agreed to pay the child support.
On Wednesday, President Trump was acquitted 52-48 in the Senate of the abuse of power charge against him and 53-47 on the obstruction of Congress charge.
At the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday morning, the president celebrated by holding up newspapers with large “Acquitted” headlines as he stood mere feet away from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who had ripped up a copy of his State of the Union speech right after he finished delivering it on Tuesday night.

(Friday Church News Notes, February 7, 2020,[email protected], 866-295-4143) – 
The Super Bowl is one of modern America’s gods. Viewership peaked at 115 million in 2014, but it still remains at about 100 million. It is not just a football game, it is a forum for the promotion of moral wickedness and humanistic philosophy. It is purposefully held on Sunday, a brash affront to the God who designated Sunday as “the Lord’s Day.” For many years, the halftime show has been “essentially a celebration of gay pride.” This year, one of the commercial spots featured “pro-homosexual drag queens bent on indoctrinating your children into a pro-LGBTQ lifestyle” (whereas an anti-abortion commercial was deemed inappropriate). The game is primarily about greed, but the environment is permeated with foul speech, drinking, gambling, half-nakedness, rock & roll sensuality, a “live as you please” philosophy (with a thin veneer of “Jesus is my buddy and he helped me win” Christianity). Fox made $412 million in advertising revenue this year, and the host city, Miami, received a $500 million economic impact. The price of a single ticket is more than $6,000. Anheuser-Busch has spent $441 million on Super Bowl advertising since 2006. Super Bowl fans consume 52 million cases of beer. About 23 million people (7% of the population) place wagers on the game, totaling $6.8 BILLION. The Super Bowl does not stir up righteous affections. It’s all about “inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry” (Colossians 3:5). A pastor who stopped watching Super Bowl in 2008 said, “It has become an intensified concentration of vulgarity and ego, with enough athletics in the game and cleverness in the commercials to trick me into watching. It’s simply not what I’m living for.” To that we say, Amen. We would like to know how one can obey the following Scripture while participating in the Super Bowl. “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Ephesians 5:11).

The following is excerpted from “Christians Clap and Cheer,” Reformation Charlotte, Feb. 3, 2020: “The Super Bowl Halftime Show during the NFL game last night may have been the most blasphemous production ever put on by a major world organization. As the show was riddled with sex–and references to sex–it is clear that Americans have exchanged the true God for a god of lust. … During the show, Jennifer Lopez put on a pole dance performance and presented herself as a sex object for the world to watch. … during the performance, it appears she is raised up on what looks like a pose on the cross of Jesus while the surrounding people fall down on their faces in simulated worship. [And there was an obvious depiction of the two crosses that were on either side of Jesus.] Anyone who thinks this wasn’t by design is foolish.”

We don’t spend much time writing about politics, but the Democrat party has become a clear and present danger to religious liberty in America by its 100% support of homosexual rights. Consider two of the top Democrat presidential contenders. Elizabeth Warren promises to fill at least half of her cabinet “by women and non binary people” (transexuals) (Pulpit and Pen, Jan. 27, 2020). She also vows that her nominee for Secretary of Education must be interviewed and approved by a nine-year-old transgender child (“Elizabeth Warren Vows,” The Washington Times, Jan. 30, 2020). Yet she insanely calls her platform “Restoring Integrity and Competence to Government.” Meanwhile, Joe Biden tweets, “Let’s be clear: Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time. There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human rights” (@JoeBiden, Jan. 26, 2020). Of course, there is no such thing as a transgender. One is either male or female, as determined by biology.

A new study by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) found that “viewing pornography has been normalised among children from their mid-teens onwards, with more encountering it on networks such as Snapchat and WhatsApp than on dedicated pornography sites” (“Porn survey reveals extent of UK teenagers’ viewing habits,” The Guardian, Jan. 31, 2020). “The report’s authors concluded that parents of 16- to 17-year-olds were either in denial or largely unaware of what their child viewed online, with the parents of teenage girls the most likely to be unaware their children were watching pornography. … While 75% of parents did not believe their children would have watched pornography, the majority of these parents’ children told the researchers that they had viewed adult material.”


(Friday Church News Notes, February 7, 2020, [email protected], 866-295-4143) – 
The following is excerpted from “Your smartphone is making you stupid, antisocial and unhealthy,” The Globe and Mail, Apr. 10, 2018: “Catherine Steiner-Adair, a clinical psychologist and research associate in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, interviewed 1,000 kids between the ages of 4 and 18 for her 2013 book The Big Disconnect. Many of them said they no longer run to the door to greet their parents because the adults are so often on their phones when they get home. And it gets worse once they’re through the door. One of the smartphone’s terrible, mysterious powers, from a child’s perspective, is its ability ‘to pull you away instantly, anywhere, anytime,’ Dr. Steiner-Adair writes. Because what’s happening on the smartphone screen is inscrutable to others, parents often seem to have simply gotten sucked into another dimension, leaving their kid behind. ‘To children, the feeling is often one of endless frustration, fatigue and loss.’”

The following is excerpted from “Father of 7-Year-Old,” Daily Wire, Feb. 1, 2020: “On Thursday, a Texas court ruled in favor of Jeff Younger, the father of James Younger, the seven-year-old whose pediatrician mother was attempting to medically transition her son into a girl. Dallas Judge Mary Brown upheld an October decision that gave both parents conservatorship over their child and denied the mother’s request that the case revert to the October 21 11-1 jury decision that gave her sole managing conservatorship. That decision was later overruled by Judge Kim Cooks, who ruled that conservatorship would be split evenly between both parents. … Jeff Younger said Georgulas had been pushing their son to transition after their divorce. He claimed that when his son was three years old, his mother locked him in his bedroom and told him, ‘monsters only eat boys.’ He also said she had forced James to wear dresses.”

The following is excerpted from Pulpit & Pen, Jan. 27, 2020: “[A] prominent Liverpool venue just canceled American evangelist, Franklin Graham, for preaching ‘hate.’ By ‘hate,’ the ACC Liverpool venue means Graham’s preaching of the Bible when it comes to various sin issues like homosexuality. [ACC Liverpool tweeted,] ‘Over the past few days we have been made aware of a number of statements which we consider to be incompatible with our values.’ [BBC reported,] ‘Franklin Graham has repeatedly publicly promoted his homophobic beliefs including, but not limited to, branding homosexuality a sin, claiming Satan was the architect of same-sex marriage and LGBT rights, claiming gay people existing are causing a moral 9/11, declared that gay people are the enemy of civilization and advocates for the highly damaging abusive practice of gay conversion therapy.’ The mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, took to Twitter to rub it in. ‘Our City is a diverse City and proud of our LGBTQ+ community and always will be. We can not allow hatred and intolerance to go unchallenged by anyone including by religious groups or sects. It’s right we have banned from the M&S Arena Franklin Graham. #Love conquers hatred always.’” NOTE: Graham has also been banned from the International Convention Centre Wales in Newport, Glasgow SEC, and Sheffield City Trust.

Ed Stetzer, the disgraced former Lifeway executive who knowingly sold false Heaven Tourism books before being publicly exposed by Alex Malarkey, is now at the center of the leftist movement within evangelicalism. He’s now using hard-core leftist lady-preachers like Christine Caine and homosexuals like Wesley Hill to infiltrate Wheaton College, which now employs him.
Wesley Hill is a homosexual who publicly opposed the ‘Nashville Statement,’ which attempted (but largely fell short due to not condemning Same-Sex Attraction, although it did condemn Same-Sex behavior) to defend a Biblical view of human sexuality. Hill, who is gay, said the document is “antagonistic to the gospel” by opposing homosexual actions so straightforwardly.
Stetzer is having Hill speak to his group at the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton, College.

What does a gay man know about discipleship? He thinks that sanctification is “antithetical to the gospel.”
Stetzer took part in a Marxist think-tank meeting at Wheaton in April of 2018, in which Soros’ “rented evangelicals” took part, designed to brainstorm ways to keep Trump from being elected in 2020. Conservatives walked-out of that meeting when they discovered its real purpose.
Later, Stetzer defended pro-choice Wheaton students and their position on the subject of abortion. Stetzer has partnered Wheaton with radical evangelical feminists with horrible doctrine, Anne Voskamp (who wrote of making love to God) and Christine Caine. Then, Stetzer promoted George Soros’ immigration policies in Christianity Today.

[Before I begin, to our Rush Limbaugh, let me join countless millions of others in expressing my heart-crushing sadness over hearing you tell us of your cancer diagnosis. It cannot be overstated how dearly you are loved and how fervently we are praying to the Lord for a healing miracle for you, as well as strength, comfort and peace for you and Kathryn. We need you, and we love you.]

Describing it as disgusting does not quite capture the evil, upside-down situation we’ve watched in our nation since before President Trump was elected. The Democrat power structure, which includes more than a few so-called “Republicans” like Mitt Romney, has incessantly accused President Trump of the very things done by members of the previous administration. Those of us with understanding and eyes to see know this.

We know, relatively speaking, that President Trump is perhaps the most innocent man in Washington, which makes this insane frenzy of false accusations against him even more outrageous. That these despotic lunatics have gone so far as to impeach him – over nothing! – is an unspeakable act of treachery like we haven’t seen in our nation. Thankfully, the impeachment sham was ended on January 5th, although we know the communist subversives who’ve been running this not-so-silent coup will continue with another iteration of it.

It’s infuriating and exhausting to watch the communists in the media and Congress boldly and proudly lie about President Trump and those of us who support him. No, he has not broken any laws or committed any impeachable offenses. Nor are those of us who support him ignorant, racist rubes, as the lying media would have you believe. It has been nightmarish watching these enemies of America try to undo the 2016 presidential election, although at the same time, it has been a great blessing.

Since 2010, I’ve written numerous columns warning of the dangers to our freedoms and the foundation of our representative Republic posed by the schemes of the communist Left. You can call them Democrats, “progressives,” socialists, whatever you like, but I call them communists, and they stand against the goodness and freedom that the United States represents. Many times I have written that we should pray that God grants our nation an undeserved reprieve from the tyranny that is clearly headed our way. The Lord, in His great mercy, granted us that reprieve in causing Donald Trump to win the election, despite whatever election fraud schemes the Democrats may have tried.

Those of us who are Christians know there is nothing perfect in our lost and broken world, no perfect leader, but President Trump is a bright spot in the dark net of tyranny that is coalescing over the world. He is an answer to many prayers. He loves this nation and its people. He is trying to fulfill his campaign promises and is doing so quite well, considering the ridiculous opposition to him in Congress and the federal courts.

We may have disagreements on some policies, like a two-state “solution” in Israel. There can be no such thing. All that land belongs to Israel – forever. There is no such country as “Palestine,” and there never will be, not in truth. We also may not approve of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which is an assault on our national sovereignty. Among a number of bad items in the over 2400-page agreement, it promotes the communist United Nations “climate change” schemes. It also imposes special protections for homosexual activists and gender rebels, at the expense of the true freedoms of others. Despite the very few policy disagreements, I firmly believe that President Trump is a great blessing, a reprieve on the road to tyranny, and I thank God for him.

With Donald Trump’s presidency, God has caused the side of darkness to expose itself like never before in our nation. President Trump threatens the stranglehold on power of the entrenched “swamp” in Washington, and those people are manic in their hatred of this fact. The commies in positions of power and influence – who hate God and His people, who hate the United States and its God-blessed foundation, who hate real freedom, truth and reason – have cast off any pretense of objectivity. In their desperation to stop President Trump, they no longer care that they’re showing everyone their true faces of despotism. At this point, anyone with just one eye even half-open should be able to easily see the demented, hate-drenched minds of the leftist power mongers in Washington, the media, Hollywood, academia and anywhere else they lie.

In our nation, the spiritual battle lines are now being made plain in the physical world, so everyone has yet another chance to choose right over wrong, freedom over despotism, heaven over hell. I have no doubt that the Lord, in His great patience with us, is causing the deranged people of the communist Left to be easily seen by all those who may not have previously paid much attention to politics and the cultural rot going on around them. As a famous comedian might say, here’s your sign!

There is now no ambiguity on where leftists stand. They support legalized murder of babies, even after birth, calling it “choice.” They support lawlessness in illegal immigration and dangerous “sanctuary” cities and states. They support militant sexual depravity being imposed on our school children and used as a weapon of lawfare to rob the freedoms and livelihoods of people of conscience who oppose its normalization in our society. They support economic policies of socialism/communism that would impoverish our nation and its citizens, destroy our health care and health insurance systems and more. And, of course, they want the God of all creation and His Son Jesus to be expelled from our nation.

President Trump is the blessed reprieve that we prayed to see, as our nation moves toward the inevitable last darkest days of the world. Here’s a respite from the tyranny that is certainly headed our way, because once he is out of office, there will come a time when the satanically-inspired communists solidify their power, and it won’t be taken from them until Jesus returns. Terrible policies like the “Green New Deal,” and much worse, will become law, and our freedoms and prosperity will vanish.

So, let us continue to lift up President Trump and his family in our prayers, giving thanks for the time of his presidency that the Lord has given us, this blessed reprieve that, despite the incessant screeching and wailing of hell’s harpies, has been such a wonderful, bigly winning treat.
