The defector criticized Trump’s praises for Kim Jong Un and saying that he “loves his people,” asking why the U.S. president had to make such “great remarks” and compromise with the North Korean leader. “I don’t get it,” the defector said, pointing out that Kim Jong Un is the state leader of concentration camps where hundreds of thousands of people are imprisoned, including many Christians. “I don’t know what kind of person Trump is now,” Kim said, asking again why the U.S. president has decided to “recognize, acknowledge, and promote the cruelest leader in human history.” The rice bottles come with USB sticks that contain New Testament Bibles, hymns, Korean television dramas, medicine, and information about the outside world.

1. Proper pipe bombs don’t have wires connected to both ends. That’s dumb. 2. You can find timers / remote control receivers WAY smaller than whatever that white box is. A proper timer would best be stored inside the pipe, making it fully encapsulated. That thing is just silly looking. 3. “Hoax Devices” are FAR more common than real ones. In which case, we should ask ourselves what the motives of the “bomber” are and “who benefits?” Go ahead. Think deeply and critically. 4. Bottom Line: Whoever made that wanted it to be painfully obvious to anyone and everyone that it’s a “bomb.” This is nearly the same as a bundle of road flares wrapped together with an old-timey alarm clock ticking away.

When asked about motivation, the girls reportedly told police that they were Satan worshipers. According to police, the girls planned to drink their victims’ blood and possibly eat their flesh before committing suicide themselves.

Both of the students were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit murder, possession of a weapon on school property, and disrupting a school campus.

The United Methodist Church Book of Discipline clearly states that “The practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching. … Therefore self-avowed practicing homosexuals are not to be certified as candidates, ordained as ministers, or appointed to serve in The United Methodist Church.” Instances of violations of the UMC’s Book of Discipline concerning the ordination of homosexual clergy, and clergy conducting same-sex marriage ceremonies, increase yearly. They are largely ignored by the hierarchy, and worn as a badge of honor by the violators. Perhaps the most publicized example of pushing the boundaries of the UMC’s stated beliefs concerning these issues is the case of Bishop Karen Oliveto, the first openly lesbian bishop in The United Methodist Church.

More than fifty scholars who work at universities in the U.K., U.S., Australia and elsewhere, and are part of a group of over a hundred, have signed a letter expressing their concern about the detrimental effects of political correctness and the “trans” lobby on their ability to research and report their findings regarding so-called “transgenderism.” “Members of our group have experienced campus protests, calls for dismissal in the press, harassment, foiled plots to bring about dismissal, no-platforming, and attempts to censor academic research and publications. The aggressive pushers of “tolerance” are bullies, and these militant homofascists have imposed their propaganda will on schools and universities in the UK.

It is becoming increasingly, not just clear, but obvious that the point of the Synod on the Youth is the normalization of homosexuality in the Church. In fact, this has been the plan all along. Archbishop Viganò correctly identified the “homosexual current” in the Church and specifically the Vatican. Everything that has happened in the Francis papacy traces directly back to the issue of homosexuality — even Amoris Laetitia. In 2014, George Pell, the cardinal of Sydney, Australia, came out on camera and said the entire question about divorced and civilly remarried Catholics and Holy Communion was nothing more than a “stalking horse” — his words — to grease the skids for the question of homosexuality being accepted in the Church.

The owners of a shuttered bakery fined by the state after refusing to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple want to take their case to the U.S. Supreme Court. The former owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa filed a petition asking the high court to overturn the state’s order to pay $135,000 in emotional damages to the couple they turned away. The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries imposed the damages after finding the Kleins had violated state anti-discrimination law. The state Supreme Court declined to hear the case. That leaves the U.S. Supreme Court as the final avenue of appeal, but the odds it will hear the case are long.
