‘Satan’s Greetings’: Satanists Erect Diabolic Display Alongside Nativity Set in Illinois Statehouse

A Satanic Temple display now sits alongside a Christmas tree and a Nativity scene in the Illinois Statehouse as part of what was supposed to be Christmas-themed decorations.  The black-colored statue from the Satanists depicts a hand clutching an apple with a serpent wrapped around the forearm. A red glow lights the figure from below.  The so-called holiday monument is titled “Snaketivity” and was created by The Satanic Temple — Chicago Chapter.  The sculpture appears to celebrate the fall of mankind, as Adam and Eve succumbed to the serpent’s temptation to eat of the fruit forbidden by God.  Read more:  https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/satans-greetings-satanists-erect-diabolic-display-alongside-nativity-set-in

Virginia Teacher Fired for Refusing to Use Transgender Student’s ‘Proper’ Pronouns

‘All Cultures are Equal’ Update: Thousands of Brides Being Burned Alive in India

Thousands of brides are being burned alive in India despite the practice being illegal, a Christian ministry has warned.  India Partners, a Christian organization told Mission Network News that there are still as many as 8,000 bride burning cases a year in the Hindu-majority country.  The low view of women is spread through parts of India’s society.  The burning attacks, some of which have resulted in deaths, are tied to dowry and marriage disputes in rural districts.  “Horrible things like this happen because of dowry deaths.

Angels on Assignment: ‘Voice of God’ Saves Men from Semi-Truck Crash

Two men who escaped being crushed by a semi say it was the voice of God that saved them.  “We heard a voice, and it was to get out of the truck and I look down and I saw a semi swerving toward us,” Jordan Cole told WJW. He was traveling with Kenneth Bryant and several other men from Montana to Philadelphia for a pastor’s conference when their truck broke down.  Bryant and Cole stayed with the vehicle while the others took a van to go get a repair part.  All of the sudden Bryant became overwhelmed with a sort of vision, he said.  “It was kind of vivid,” Bryant said. “It was a pretty predominant thought that the truck was going to get hit.”  Read more:  https://fox59.com/2018/12/08/voice-of-god-saves-men-from-semi-truck-crash/

Denmark Deserves an ‘A’ for Effort in Confronting Jihad in 2018. But Is It Enough?

Fortunately, the Danish government didn’t let the media propagandists stay its hand. On August 1, the niqab and burka ban took effect, bringing Danish policy into line with that of France, Austria, and Belgium — and causing yet another round of hand-wringing by the fake-news crowd.  Media around the world reported on — and of course, deplored — the first arrest under the ban. In October, Immigration Minister Inger Støjberg announced that, because of the incredibly poor results of integration efforts, Denmark would not accept a single additional quota refugee. Result: still more media hysteria.  Read more:  https://pjmedia.com/homeland-security/denmark-deserves-an-a-for-effort-in-confronting-jihad-in-2018-but-is-it-enough/
