Tearing down the shower curtain

The U.S. House Judiciary Committee has heard hours of testimony about HR 5.  This bill is a direct assault on the safety, privacy, and athletic talent of women and girls across America.  Unfortunately, the committee nearly ignored the horrific religious freedom violations in this bill.  HR 5 will give biological men access to women’s bathrooms, showers, and sleeping arrangements. When Target opened up their bathrooms to both genders, there was a significant uptick in the number of perverts coming in to their stores to prey on innocent women and children.  Yesterday’s testimony glossed over, and flat out lied about the fact that we already know of nearly 80 instances of abuse or attempted abuse in these and similar situations, and the vast majority of these types of situations are not reported.  Read more:  https://www.lcaction.org/detail/20190403-tearing-down-the-shower-curtain

Telling the Truth About Islam is Now a Criminal Offense in Europe

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), the international body tasked with ruling over the 47 member states of the Council of Europe, made a ruling this week that effectively criminalizes telling the truth about the Islamic faith by essentially affirming a ruling made by the Austrian courts against Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff after she derided the prophet Muhammad’s for having a six-year-old child bride.  It was decided that Sabaditsch-Wolff’s comments “were likely to disturb the religious peace,” so her freedom of speech had to be curtailed, to satisfy the desires of the third-world invaders prone to violence. These are the predictable end results of Europe’s embrace of diversity and acceptance of multiculturalism.  Read more: https://www.teaparty.org/telling-truth-islam-now-criminal-offense-europe-354232/

Christian College Nursing, Education Students Getting Blacklisted

Some Christian schools have encountered hospitals and schools that refuse to accept their nursing and education students for jobs and internships, said Shirley Hoogstra, president of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.  The students are being turned away due to the colleges’ understanding of marriage as between one man and one woman. The problem is not widespread, Hoogstra explained, but it is an issue that the CCCU has been dealing with and is concerned about for the future.  “There have been small pockets in the United States where Christian colleges that have held a traditional understanding of marriage have had some of their professional programs impacted,” she said.  Read more:  https://www.christianpost.com/news/christian-college-nursing-education-students-getting-blacklisted-cccu-president-says.html

The Texas Attorney General is Investigating San Antonio for Banning Chick-fil-A from Its Airport

The Texas attorney general is investigating whether the city of San Antonio violated Chick-fil-A’s religious liberty when it banned the fast food chain from its airport.  Last week, the San Antonio city council approved a new concessions contract for the San Antonio International Airport — on the condition that Chick-fil-A be excluded.  Texas attorney general Ken Paxton slammed the city’s decision as “discriminatory” and “inconsistent with the Constitution and Texas law.” Councilman Roberto Treviño, who made the motion to exclude Chick-fil-A, said San Antonio does not tolerate “anti-LGBTQ behavior.”  Read more: https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/29/politics/texas-san-antonio-airport-chick-fil-a-investigation/index.html

In Sweden, a Glimpse of America’s Future – Kowtowing to Islam Inch by Inch

Not so many years ago, the notion that a hijab-wearing jihad enthusiast like Linda Sarsour could become a leading figure in the American feminist movement would have seemed risible. The spectacle of a congresswoman, also in hijab, who routinely spouted anti-Semitic rhetoric and gave speeches to groups with known terrorist connections, would have been unimaginable. But here we are. And the important thing to realize is that, unless things change radically, this is just the beginning. Before you know it, three Muslim members of Congress can turn into five, then ten, then twenty. There are now fifteen Muslims in the British Parliament, up from thirteen in 2015 and eight in 2010.  Read more:  https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/273281/sweden-glimpse-americas-future-bruce-bawer

James Dobson: Dems’ ‘Equality’ Bill Targets Christians

James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family and the James Dobson Family Institute, the author of dozens of books on family and adviser to presidents, warns the Democrats’ proposed Equality Act is a really, really bad deal for the nation.  Dobson wrote, “Make no mistake – the so-called Equality Act is nothing but a thinly veiled attempt to finish off religious liberty in America once and for all, which ought to be plainly obvious based upon a cursory reading of the First Amendment.”  he proposal, H.R. 5 and S. 788, would provide special protections for the LGBT community throughout American society. It would state that religious beliefs are not a defense in a dispute between gay rights and constitutionally protected religious rights.  Read more at https://www.wnd.com/2019/03/dobson-dems-equality-bill-targets-christians/#fD1ThWQIdQuV3W2p.99

Jewish Author: Christians Face Danger in America

A New York Times bestselling author is warning that Christians are in real danger of persecution — in America.  And this warning comes from a surprising source, a prominent secular Jew.  David Horowitz argues in his new book “Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America,” that secularists and leftists want to turn the nation into a godless, heathen society where religion has absolutely no role.  Horowitz, who heads the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles, is used to taking controversial positions. He is the New York Times best-selling author of “Radical Son and Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America.”  “The war on Christianity is real, and it’s right on our doorstep,” Horowitz says.  Read more: https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/dark-agenda-liberals-christians-david-horowitz/2019/03/18/id/907598/?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=mixi&utm_campaign=newsmax
