READ MY NEW ARTICLE AT WND.COM – I have a new article at WND.COM about the election misbehavior of evangelical Christians. The article explains why evangelicals tend to jump on political bandwagons regardless of the beliefs or behavior of the candidates. Read it here!
OBAMA SAYS JESUS WANTS TAX HIKES – I have not attended the National Prayer Breakfast for many years because it has become a political mockery rather than a gathering of the faithful to pray. As if to prove my point, President Barack Obama used this week’s National Prayer Breakfast to push his tax increases, saying that as a Christian he knows that Jesus would want the rich to pay higher taxes. He awkwardly offered his proof by reading Luke 12:48 out of context. The passage actually concerns the treatment of servants by masters and has nothing whatsoever to do with taxes or government.
OBAMA AND THE CHURCH – According to President Barack Obama, a Christian school is a secular body separate from the church. He used the argument to try to force employee standards on church schools (although thankfully he lost in the Supreme Court). Now he wants to use mandated health insurance to force Church owned organizations such as schools and hospitals to provide health insurance that includes contraceptives, sterilization and even the “morning after pill.”

SENATOR TELLS OBAMA HE IS NOT JESUS – A few hours after President Barack Obama invoked the words of Jesus to promote tax hikes Senator Orrin Hatch took to the floor of the Senate and made this comment: “Just this morning at the National Prayer Breakfast the President took what has always been a non-partisan opportunity for national unity and used it to promote his political agenda. He suggested to the attendees that Jesus would have supported his latest tax-the-rich schemes. With due respect to the President, he should stick to public policy. I think most Americans would agree that the Gospels are concerned with weightier matters than effective tax rates.” The Senator went on to point out Obama’s attack on the church using Obama Care earlier in the week.

PRAYER CAUCUS BACKED BILLS – The WWII Memorial Prayer Act, H.R. 2070 passed this week by an overwhelming 386-26. Prayer Caucus members introduces the bill because the Park Service omitted “so help us God” in an inscription of President Roosevelt’s address to Congress following the attacks on Pearl Harbor. This bill directs the inscription of President Franklin Roosevelt’s historic “D-Day Prayer” at the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. Pressure must be placed on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to pass the bill in the Senate.
By a voice vote the House also approved the War Memorial Protection Act, H.R. 290. This legislation ensures that memorials commemorating the U.S. Armed Forces may contain religious symbols. The bill counters decisions by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (The Nutty Ninth) to remove such monuments to veterans as the Mt. Solidad Cross.
RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION FROM OBABACARE – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced a bill called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 2012 that will expand the nearly nonexistent exemption for religious employers in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly known as ObamaCare.
As it now stands, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is forcing religious employers to pay for contraceptives, sterilization services, and abortion-inducing drugs for their employees. In a failed attempt to respond to complaints, the DHHS has given religious organizations one year to adapt to the ObamaCare mandate. Read more
RELIGION AND CULTURE
CHERRY PICKING THE BIBLE – In America today there is a growing fad which has been called Designer Christianity. Cherry-picked Christian ideology has zero to do with God’s Word and everything to do with the moral relativism that now pervades modern philosophy. It is a pick-and-choose brand of religion where a person selects exactly what he or she wants to believe, misinterprets and takes Scripture out of context, and then labels those who object to that sacrilege as mean-spirited, un-Jesus-like, and anti-Christian.

OCCUPY MOVEMENT GOES ANTI-SEMITIC – Does it actually surprise anyone that the Oakland, California Occupy movement endorsed the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel? A statement at the Occupy Oakland website stated that Israel had “prodded” the United States into Afghanistan and Iraq wars. This is the same group that broke into the Oakland City Hall, smashed windows and furniture and set fires. These are Obama’s thugs practicing their assault tactics in preparation for the November election.

DUBAI POLICE CHIEF NO LONGER TRUSTS A MERICA – At a January 19, 2012 regional security conference in Bahrain, Dubai’s longtime chief of police Dahi Khalfan Tamim gave an assessment of security threats to the Gulf states. He said that the U.S. was the main security threat, had realized Iran’s dreams in Iraq, was “embracing” the Muslim Brotherhood, and was no longer an ally. (This is what our allies in the Gulf have to say about us.) Read more
MEDIA DISCOVERS PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS – Has the media discovered persecuted Christians in the Middle East? For the most part the answer is no. Despite Asia Bibi and other Christians in jail for blasphemy, and despite the murders of Christians in Iraq, Iran and other Islamic areas, the media is for the most part silent.The Boko Haram has killed hundreds of Christians so far this year alone, yet the New York Times ran an opinion editorial stating that the Boko Haram is “not a problem in Nigeria.” However, there may be spark of light at Fox News.

SUCCESS AGAINST ISLAMIC TERROR – A Philippine Air Force strike against an Islamic terror target has killed Zulkifli bin Hir (also known as Marwan), a Malaysian-born bomb maker the US wanted dead so badly that it put a $5 million bounty on his head. Three other Islamic terror leaders were killed in the attack that may cripple the Abu Sayyaf, which kills hundreds of Christians a year in the Philippines. The American media virtually never mentions Islamic terror attacks in this region of the world.
