The reality behind the ordinance is discrimination against “people of faith.” The regulation just got the city’s official approval, says Jameson Taylor, Ph.D., of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy. “These ordinances use the power of the government to force Christians and orthodox Jews, and others,” he warns, “to bow down to the same-sex lifestyle.” But the true purpose behind these ordinances, Taylor tells OneNewsNow, is to take the ongoing culture war a step farther by demanding new rights from landlords, business owners, and employers. “The radical homosexual lobby is looking for local wins in the South as well as the Midwest,” Taylor continues. “Their goal is to change the culture and the politics one city at a time, one classroom at a time, (and) one book at a time.” Read more: https://www.onenewsnow.com/politics-govt/2018/08/16/lgbt-push-for-full-equality-claims-another-ms-city
Michael “Mikey” Weinstein and his dubiously named Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) filed a formal complaint this week with Defense Secretary James Mattis alleging that Brig. Gen. E. John Teichert, a Christian and the newly installed commander of the 412 Test Wing at Edwards Air Force Base in California, engaged in “intolerance/proselytizing; violations of DoD diversity & civil liberties policies; and Air Force standards violations.” In a press release on Monday, the virulently anti-Christain organization screeched that Teichert “should be doing time behind prison bars, not commanding a wing wearing general’s stars.” Teichert “has denigrated LGBT individuals, slammed American society at large, and, of course, delivered election voting mandate directives wherein he has effusively urged that only HIS type of approved Christian should ever be elected to American public office,” according to the salacious smear by MRFF.
When an American couple decided that, in their reality, “evil didn’t exist”, they had to prove it. To do so, they attempted to ride their bicycles in ISIS territory near the Afghanistan border. Note that we said “attempted”. While on the trip, they posted on their website: “Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own—it’s easier to dismiss an opinion as abhorrent than strive to understand it. Badness exists, sure, but even that’s quite rare. By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind. No greater revelation has come from our journey than this. Then, on July 29, 2018, as they were riding their bikes with two other cyclists in Tajikistan, five men exited their car and stabbed all the bicyclists to death.
The Parents Television Council, a media watchdog group, wrote a letter to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings calling for the immediate removal of Argentinean film “Desire” for its “child-porn content.” The parents group accused Netflix of “showing a reckless disregard for the millions of families that keep your streaming platform alive and viable, and callously placing profits ahead of any sense of corporate responsibility, to potentially engaging in criminal activity.” Netflix did not return a request for comment. The film depicts a 9-year-old girl masturbating and accidentally experiencing an orgasm while watching a John Ford cowboy film with another young girl, according to Deadline and IndieWire. The movie scene shows the girl bouncing up and down in slow motion on a pillow as if on a horse and close-ups of the girl’s face.

A university spokesperson said that while students will no longer be required to sign the covenant, faculty, staff and administrators will still have to sign it. The decision comes after the Supreme Court of Canada upheld the denial of accreditation to the university’s proposed law school due to concerns about discrimination against LGBTQ students. The court found that the Law Society of Upper Canada “was entitled to conclude that equal access to the legal profession, diversity within the bar, and preventing harm to LGBTQ law students were all within the scope of its duty to uphold the public interest.” Michael Mulligan, an attorney who pushed to have TWU discredited, called the school’s decision “a very positive move,” but warned that if teachers and staff are still required to sign the covenant, it could still pose a threat to accreditation.
The stories about Muslims coming to Christ and that God is using dreams and visions to prepare them all seem to be second- and third-hand, and it is difficult for many to know if the accounts are true or not. Ben and Jenny — missionaries in a Muslim nation – know that the stories are true. They told American Family Radio’s Today’s Issues that the Scripture, Joel 2:28, is coming true – right before their very eyes. “We seek to share the Gospel three to five times on a weekly basis, and most of those times are people [who] have never heard the Gospel,” Ben explained. “They’ve heard of Jesus from the Koran, but they have vast misconceptions of who Jesus Christ is.” In addition, Tom Doyle, in his book, Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World?, talks about many similar stories of Muslims being given dreams by God.
Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton offered an unconventional defense of Roe v. Wade over the weekend, during an event dedicated to supporting the 1973 Supreme Court decision that forced every state to allow abortion-on-demand. At the Washington Examiner, Becket Adams pounced on Clinton’s comments, responding by noting two negative economic impacts of abortion, the “drain that the average cost of obtaining an abortion ($300 – $800) has been on the U.S economy,” and the “cost of eliminating an estimated 60 million persons from the national workforce.” “To endorse it as a money-generator is one step away from endorsing termination-for-profit,” he wrote. “And why not? If Roe added $3.5 trillion to the economy, then let’s up those numbers! Let’s do it and be rich! If personal profit is the real game – well, at least Clinton is being honest. So much for safe, legal, and rare.” Read more: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/chelsea-clinton-roe-v.-wade-freed-women-to-add-3.5-trillion-to-u.s.-economy
