The CEO of a sex toy company is making $2 million donation to a transgender clinic at an Ohio children’s hospital, a move some say highlights the “dark underbelly” of transgender activism. Chris is also the president of Pure Romance, a multimillion dollar company that sells sexual lubricants and sex toys, among other things. Some believe the large monetary gift to this cause reveals a disturbing connection. “I’ve been participating in real-life activism against the transgender trend for over two years because I saw what was happening to the children caught up in its lies: permanent physical harm to their young bodies,” said Emily Zinos, project coordinator for Ask Me First MN, in an email to The Christian Post Friday. “Unbelievably, I’ve been called a bigot for drawing attention to the fact that teenagers are routinely sterilized by transgender medical treatments and for connecting the dots between well-funded intrusions into public schools by radical transgender activists and an increase in young kids identifying as trans,” Zinos added.

The latest research shows that hostility toward Christians is proliferating worldwide, as more and more nations are targeting believers in Christ than any other faith. “The most widely targeted groups in 144 and 142 countries respectively were Christians and Muslims – the world’s two largest religious groups,” the Pew Research Center announced. It was further noted that persecution against each of these religious groups and other faiths has risen over the years. “Christian groups were harassed in 144 nations (up from 128 in 2015)” World Watch Monitor pointed out from the Pew study. “The report found that ‘Christians are harassed in more countries by governments (114 countries) than by social groups (107 countries).’” When it comes to aggressive attacks on citizens for practicing their faith, China beats out the rest of the governments in the world. “The rigidly atheist Communist regime banned the online purchase of Bibles earlier this year, following efforts to raze churches and remove Christian symbols from home years prior,” CT’s Griffin Paul Jackson noted from Pew’s research. “The Communist Party of China’s ‘control over religion is to be exerted not only through law, but also by reconciling religious doctrine with the party’s socialist values,’ wrote Brent Fulton in a 2016 analysis for CT.”

A man charged with murdering eight people on a New York City bike path last October 31 defended the Islamic State group and said he cared only about “Allah” and the holy war being waged by the Islamic State group. “So the Islamic State is not fighting for land, like some say, or like some say, for oil. They have one purpose, and they’re fighting to impose Sharia (Islamic law) on Earth,” he said. Saipov said the judgments made in the courtroom were “not important” to him because they were “not Allah’s judgments,” according to the New York Times.

Belgium Catholic Romelu Lukaku and Panamanian evangelical Fidel Escobar took a knee together and prayed on the field following the 2018 World Cup. Belgium won the match, 3-0. Immediately after it was over, the two men knelt in prayer. A Twitter user, Oscar Flex-Kibet, posted the image. He tweeted, “Lukaku and Fidel Escobar kneeling and praying at the final whistle was a beautiful moment for many. Both players may represent different religions and had differing results yet they found peace in what they were doing.” He added, “Love for the game. God above all #WorldCup#BELPAN#BEL.” Lukaku has knelt in prayer following a previous game. He posted an image on Instagram. Lukaku said, “Dear lord I just want to say thank you. #Qualified #WC18.” Read more: https://stream.org/joy-break-catholic-and-evangelical-soccer-players-join-in-prayer-after-world-cup/
Frontrunner presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Tuesday declaring it a “human right” for all North Americans. “And soon, very soon – after the victory of our movement – we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.” He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports. Fox’s Tucker Carlson noted Thursday that Obrador has previously proposed granting amnesty to Mexican drug cartels. “America is now Mexico’s social safety net, and that’s a very good deal for the Mexican ruling class,” Carlson added. To be sure, Obrador is only saying out loud what every other Mexican president believed in his heart: that America is Mexico’s “social safety net” and that it’s up to the U.S. taxpayer to take care of Mexico’s unemployable, destitute millions.

“After years of smearing good people with false charges of bigotry, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has finally been held to account,” Marc Thiessen writes in his latest Washington Post column, regarding the SPLC’s $3.375 million settlement and public apology to Maajid Nawaz, a former Islamic radical-turned-reformer who the SPLC included in its “Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists.” Other SPLC victims are lining up to follow suit. Thiessen explains how the SPLC, “a once-storied organization that did important work filing civil rights lawsuits against the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s,” has in recent years become “a caricature of itself” by “labeling virtually anyone who does not fall in line with its left-wing ideology an ‘extremist’ or ‘hate group.’”

Sophia Lösche is yet another leftist extinguished by the totalitarian entity she worshiped. The 28-year-old “German immigrant activist” was recently murdered by a Muslim migrant. As Robert Spencer has aptly noted, “Lösche no doubt explained to many people who questioned her work with Muslim migrants that the ‘refugees’ were not dangerous.” This latest, but very expected, murder, brings attention to leftists habitually sacrificing not only others’, but also their own lives in their romance with Jihad and Sharia. Lösche is only the latest of a string of political pilgrims who perpetually shed their own blood in their dalliance with tyranny and terror. These anti-West and anti-Israel activists learn all too late the true nature of those they ventured to the Middle East to support, as they are raped, brutalized, and murdered by the very people whose violent cause they championed.
