Pope Knowingly Gave Vatican Apartment to Gay Priest Later Caught in Cocaine-Fueled Orgy

Pope Francis gave a Vatican apartment to a priest who was later caught hosting a drug-fueled homosexual orgy in that same apartment despite being warned about the priest’s grave problems, a highly placed Vatican source told LifeSiteNews.  It was Francis himself who made sure that a homosexual secretary of his friend Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio would obtain a privileged apartment in the Vatican.  Cardinal Coccopalmerio, then president of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, and one of Pope Francis’ closest collaborators and ardent supporters, had spoken in 2014 about the “positive elements” in homosexual relationships.  Read more: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/breaking-pope-knowingly-gave-vatican-apartment-to-gay-priest-later-caught-i?utm_content=buffer85d97&utm_medium=CRC%2BBuffer&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=CRC

Facebook’s Massive, Secret Rulebook for Policing Speech Reveals Inconsistencies, Gaps and Biases

Franklin Graham responds: Well, now we know. Facebook has a secret rulebook for policing speech. I was banned from posting on Facebook last week for 24 hours. Why? Because of a post about North Carolina’s House Bill 2 (the bathroom bill). Facebook said the post went against their “community standards on hate speech.” Facebook is trying to define truth. There was a character in a movie a few years back who said, “The truth is what I say it is!” That’s what Facebook is trying to do. They’re making the rules and changing the rules. Truth is truth. God made the rules and His Word is truth. Actually, Facebook is censoring free speech.  Read more:  https://www.foxnews.com/tech/facebooks-massive-secret-rulebook-for-policing-speech-reveals-inconsistencies-gaps-and-biases?fbclid=IwAR3Q3eYJg8NpcoE1cJ0mekZu0BCh2_xP3TxVrb0a1iAOZuWuSyaetMKIU3E

Canadian Imam Proclaims Saying ‘Merry Christmas’ Is Worse than Murder

One Canadian imam has declared that, for Muslims, uttering the phrase is worse than murder. Sheikh Younus Kathrada  said: “There are those who will say to them ‘Merry Christmas.’ What are you congratulating them on?  Will you stop saying ‘Merry Christmas’ because of this?  “Congratulations on the birth of your Lord? Is that acceptable to a Muslim?  “Are you now approving of their beliefs? By saying that you are approving of it … If a person were to commit every major sin — committing adultery, dealing with interest, lying, murder. If if a person were to do all of those major sins, they are nothing compared to the sin of congratulating and greeting the non-Muslims on their false festivals.”  Read more: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/canadian-imam-merry-christmas-worse-murder/

It’s Offensive: Facebook Censors Image of Santa Kneeling before Baby Jesus in a Manger

Facebook warns viewers that the photo “may show violent or graphic content.”  A second warning beneath the obscured image of Santa on bended knee, reverentially adoring the Christ Child states, “This photo was automatically covered so you can decide if you want to see it.”  Users can click on a button to uncover the photo.  “We err on the side of allowing content, even when some find it objectionable,” declares Facebook’s community standards, saying it does so in order to maintain a “safe environment” for its “Facebook community.”  It remains unclear why the image of Baby Jesus and Santa was deemed by Facebook to be “violent and graphic content.”  Read more:  https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/12/its-offensive-facebook-censors-image-of-santa-kneeling-before-baby-jesus-in-a-manger/

Google Approves App to Report Incidents of Islamic Blasphemy

Apple may have forbidden a Christian app regarding homosexuality, but its Silicon Valley competitor Google is fine with offering an app enabling Muslims to report blasphemy to the police.  A new Android app has launched which allows Muslims to report individuals who insult Islam.  The app, “Smart Pakem”, which launched in Indonesia at the request of the Indonesian government, will allow users and government officials to uphold Sharia law and target and report people who hold “misguided” beliefs in violation of Islamic law, which forbids insults of Islam, insults against the Prophet Mohammed, or the recognition of any other religion besides Islam.

Why is Chinese Leader Xi Jinping Raging against Religion, Especially Christianity?

Psalm 2 poses the question rhetorically:  Why are the nations in an uproar (a rage).  And the peoples devising a vain thing?  The kings of the earth take their stand.  And the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying.  ‘Let us tear their fetters apart.  And cast away their cords from us!’  Recent events have shown Xi Jinping’s strategy: the consolidation of his power as the leader who restores Stalinist Communism to China, and strengthens state atheism. This inevitably results in the tightening of freedoms and the attempt to stamp out the worship of God. Under such tyrannies, the dictator allows no one on the throne but himself—not even God.  Read more:  https://www.christianpost.com/voice/china-raging.html

Americans’ Trust in Honesty, Ethics of Clergy Hits All-Time Low in Gallup Ranking of Professions

 

The Gallup poll, conducted between Dec. 3-12 of 1,025 U.S. adults, found that only 37 percent of respondents had a “very high” or “high” opinion of the honesty and ethical standards of clergy. Forty-three percent of people gave them an average rating, while 15 percent said they had a “low” or “very low” opinion.  Gallup noted that the 37 percent “very high” or “high” score for clergy is the lowest since it began asking the question in 1977.  “The public’s views of the honesty and ethics of the clergy continue to decline after the Catholic Church was rocked again this year by more abuse scandals,” Gallup noted in its observations.  Read more:  https://www.christianpost.com/news/americans-trust-in-honesty-ethics-of-clergy-hits-all-time-low-in-gallup-ranking-of-professions.html
