“Princeton Policy Advisors estimates that 103,000 women will be raped trying to reach the U.S. from Central America in 2019. Though that figure could be much higher, as rape and other crimes against migrants skyrockets in Mexico and after they cross the border.”
(Jerome Hudson – Breitbart) For all the political Left’s shrieks about a so-called “War on women” and a systemic “rape culture” pervasive throughout American society, the reality that some 8 in 10 women and girls are sexually assaulted during the dangerous trek from Mexico and South America to the U.S. southern border is met mostly with silence.

Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! show and was jokingly asked by its host Jimmy Kimmel, “Do you pray to Kayne or to God at this church?” “There’s actually no praying; there’s no sermon; there’s no word; it’s just music and just a feeling,” Kardashian explained.
(Heather Clark – Christian News) Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is claiming that her husband Kanye West, who has come to be known for profane and bizarre behavior — and who released the blasphemous rap album “Yeezus” in 2013 — is “born again” and “saved by Christ.” The statements were made during an interview on The View this past Friday as Kardashian explained the origin of her husband’s controversial “Sunday Service” gatherings, which she claims is actually “a Christian church.” Continue reading
Pulpit & Pen now has a list of the evangelicals who met with the Saudi Prince just prior to the oilfield attack.
Religion News services reported, “Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met Tuesday (Sept. 10) with a delegation of American evangelical Christians in the Red Sea city of Jiddah as the kingdom works to forge closer ties with an influential electoral base in the U.S. that could be crucial to the 2020 elections.”
(Pulpit & Pen) Just days before Saudi Arabia suffered a major terrorist attack that is currently being blamed upon Iran, the Saudi Crown Prince privately flew in powerful American evangelicals, and then rushed them again out of the country before the attacks occurred. Continue reading
“These women of deep religious faith gladly serve everyone, including those in the LGBT community; their faith simply prevents them from expressing certain messages for anyone. So this case is not about whether businesses can decline to serve an entire class of people. It is about whether artists can freely choose which messages their own art conveys.”
(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media) On Monday, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that the City of Phoenix could not use a criminal law to force a Christian arts studio to make wedding invitations for a gay wedding. Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, owners of Brush & Nib Studio, faced up to six months of jail time, $2,500 in fines, and three years of probation for each day the city would find them in violation of the law.

“Perhaps the best thing now is that you should stand down/resign from the priesthood, since in advocating this you show utter contempt for it, for holiness and the supernatural origins of the order of marriage, whilst parading sin as a good.”
(Frank Camp – Daily Wire) On Thursday, Jesuit priest and editor at large of America Magazine James Martin sent out a tweet about homosexuals not feeling welcome in the Catholic church: Continue reading
“The Welcome. group includes a range of tools for the immigration activist. There are coloring exercises for children, meal conversation plans for the immigration community organizers and a Bible Study called The Ruth and Naomi Project: Welcoming the Stranger in Our Midst. These resources intend to remake evangelical theology.”
(Capstone Report) Welcome. is a women’s group promoting evangelical involvement in immigration. Its website is welcomeimmigrants.org. That website’s Internet Registry information shows World Relief as its administrative contact, and an email contact address with the National Immigration Forum. The National Immigration Forum is a group funded by George Soros. Continue reading
“Now that Stetzer has left LifeWay, he holds the Billy Graham Chair of Church, Mission, and Evangelism at Wheaton College, serves as Dean of the School of Mission, Ministry, and Leadership at Wheaton College, and serves as Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) If you ever wondered why LifeWay stores — a bookstore owned and managed by the Southern Baptist Convention — is littered with heretical books written by false teachers, it’s that those who have been in charge over the years had no concern for the poison they fed the sheep and were hell-bent on making a profit, at all costs. Continue reading
“As noted, the reason for this is simple: demographics. For decades, the Republicans have told their voters that they were going to clamp down on illegal immigration and address the legal immigration policies that have facilitated this takeover. They have made excuse after excuse for not fulfilling those promises and now that lack of action is turning Texas blue one district at a time.”
(Joshua Foxworth – American Thinker) To date, five congressmen from Texas have resigned instead of seeking re-election in 2020. Their resignations signal two things from GOP leadership…. Continue reading
“It’s a shame that as the years go by, more restrictive laws go into place, chipping away at Roe v. Wade and women in our community have less access to abortion care. This proposal will make sure that Austinites who need an abortion can access that care.”
(Micaiah Bilger – Life News) While some Texas cities are voting to protect unborn babies’ lives, another is providing money to help destroy them.
On Tuesday, the Austin City Council voted to spend $150,000 taxpayer dollars to help Austin women get abortions, KADN News reports…. Continue reading
These slanderous statements were simply bizarre. ACR 99 does not clearly define so-called “conversion therapy.” It does not even mention psychologists, psychiatrists, or mental health professionals. Instead, it targets churches, counselors, and even formerly LGBTQ Christians. Sadly, these vitriolic and bigoted attacks on California’s faith community went largely unchallenged.
(California Family Council) Last week, the California Senate gave party-line approval to Assembly Concurrent Resolution 99, a resolution demanding people of faith in the state change how they teach, preach, and counsel others related to LGBT identities and behaviors…. Continue reading
“Falwell Jr. told Hill.TV that he believes the leak of internal emails was the result of a failed effort among former board of director members to oust him from control.’
(The Hill) Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. told Hill.TV on Tuesday that he has begun sharing information with the FBI in what he alleged was a criminal conspiracy against him by former board members at the school.
Falwell said in an exclusive interview that in the coming days the FBI will review university documents at the Lynchburg, Va., campus…. Continue reading
The question asked: “Have you ever withheld your political views in class for fear that your grades would suffer?” Seventy-three percent of students who identity as “strong Republican” reported that they had, while 71 percent of students who identify as “weak Republican” said yes.
(Timothy Meades – Townhall) We know from Young America’s Foundation that Generation Z is very confused about socialism, capitalism, and the American way of life. We also learned from YAF that America’s college and high school students across the political spectrum have held back their real opinions out of fear they would offend a friend…. Continue reading
“I have been called a bigot, an ableist, a homophobe and a transphobe. I fundamentally don’t understand how someone can take my very good faith concern about the potential for exploitation and spin that into discriminating against people with a disability.”
(Amanda Prestigiacomo – Daily Wire) The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a complaint against congressional Republican candidate Peter Meijer, 31, for refusing to host a drag queen performance at a venue he owns from a group of performers with Down syndrome dubbed “Drag Syndrome.” Continue reading
Costi Hinn, the nephew of Benny Hinn and pastor of discipleship at Redeemer Bible Church in Gilbert, Arizona, told Christian News that he is cautiously optimistic about his uncle’s words. “I was encouraged by his blunt refutation of the prosperity gospel,” he said. “I sincerely hope and pray that this is the beginning of repentance for him and a turnaround in these later years in his life and ministry.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News) Televangelist Benny Hinn said on Monday that he has had a change of heart in regard to prosperity preaching and is actually quite upset about the matter — specifically in terms of asking people to give money so that God will bless them in return…. Continue reading
We are thankful that after years of hard work trying to unwed this wicked woman’s influence in the SBC, ever since our first post about her entitled, Gay-Affirming Research Fellow at ERLC, Shocking Liberalism more than four years ago, that her official affiliation with the denomination through the ERLC is now over.
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) After years of warning Southern Baptists that Karen Swallow Prior was a feminist, animal rights activist, egalitarian, and radical liberal who was serving as a change agent for leftist psuedo-Christianity, she has finally been removed as a Research Fellow for the ERLC. Continue reading
“Christian churches run a large number of educational institutions, ranging from nurseries to post-secondary institutions. Moreover, they provide 13 hospitals, a large number of clinics, family centers and old-age homes throughout Hong Kong,” the site InterNations outlines.
(Heather Clark – Christian News Network) Even though only a small percentage Hong Kong’s citizens profess to be Christian, numerous online videos have captured crowds singing “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord” on the streets in recent months among protests against a bill that some fear would extradite residents to Communist China. The protests — and singing — have continued as the calls have broadened into a wider demand for democracy in the region. Continue reading
“It is appalling that Amazon has banned books detailing how one struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction can overcome those feelings and steward his or her sexuality in a biblical fashion, while thinking nothing of selling books that celebrate the kind of deviancy Jeffrey Epstein was accused of.”
(Brandon Showalter – The Christian Post) Christian authors who once identified as gay or lesbian are highlighting the double standard Amazon is applying by removing their books from the platform while continuing to sell titles that promote pedophilia. Continue reading
“Hill Perry’s picture has been removed from the speaker line-up on the Answers in Genesis page — which was also confirmed by Answers staff.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Jackie Hill Perry is a woke feminist ex-lesbian who is a contributor at The Gospel Coalition and regular speaker in the New Calvinist SBC/PCA speaking circuit. Hill Perry has been in the forefront of Christian news for the last several days due to her obstinance to correction regarding her approval of the false gospel-preaching chicken feather-dropping Bethel Church. Continue reading
The Satanist said, “I think that’s because they feel disowned and disenfranchised from the traditional religious institutions. So, you have a population willing to embrace a religious identification that is boldly willing to speak out to the contrary.”
(Pulpit & Pen) According to the head of the Satanic Temple of the United States, more than half of the Satan-worshippers in their organization are homosexuals or the gender-confused.
Lucien Grieves (a pseudonym), the head of the U.S. Satanic Temple told a British publication that more than half of the Satanists in America are LGBTQ. Continue reading
“Biblical Christians cannot tolerate what biblical truth forbids. But even our stands on issues such as same-sex relationships and abortion are fueled not by hatred but by love.”
[Jim Denison – Christian Headlines) A Southwest Airlines flight from Orlando to Washington was delayed for three hours last Thursday. That’s not surprising news in the world of air travel. What was surprising was how the gate agent responded.
He played games with the passengers as they waited, from a paper airplane competition to a contest for “worst driver’s license picture.” Winners were awarded $25 vouchers and Southwest merchandise.
One passenger called the experience “awesome.” Her social media posts made headlines on CNN. Continue reading
“Teachers attending the training session were taught to believe in a whitewashed version of Islam. Essa told those in attendance that the word “Islam” is a variation on the Arabic word “salaam” which means peace. As the TMLC points out, Islam is more accurately translated as “submission,” since Muslims must submit to Allah and Sharia law before all other authorities. She also described the phrase “Allahu Abkar” as a refrain used to convey strong emotions; she did not mention that this same phrase is used as a battle-cry by Islamic terrorists conducting attacks.”
(Sarah Dogan – Front Page Magazine) A Freedom of Information Act request filed by the Thomas More Law Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan revealed deeply concerning information on a mandatory two-day teacher training session on Islam conducted for public school teachers in the state which denigrated Christianity while presenting Islam in an exclusively positive light. Continue reading
“Will the release of this comprehensive study finally put this issue to rest? Doubtful. Past studies have done little to shift public opinion on this. But, the size and comprehensive nature of this new study ought to crush the “born that way” myth. What is the LGBT lobby to do? It appears they are trying to spin this study as reaffirming to their beliefs.”
(Matt Margolit – PJ Media) Recent polls have shown that most Americans believe that homosexuals are “born that way” rather than become gay as the result of environmental factors. In fact, perpetuating the belief that sexual orientation is innate has been crucial to the gay rights movement…. Continue reading
“I was shown all the evidence, including recorded testimony. I also saw the letters that Stephen wrote to Rick Joyner. There is no threat, just disappointment that a leader in the body doesn’t seem to take these allegations seriously. Unlike what Rick Joyner continues to say—most of the allegations are not false. For that to be true, all of these people (about a dozen) must be lying and have no fear of God. This includes a pastor, who just this May, saw a woman in Todd’s hotel room ‘till late nights and early mornings ALONE’ and his witnessed a pattern of extreme lying. He has banned Todd from going on their mission trips.”
(Leonardo Blair – Christian Post) Sexual misconduct allegations against Fresh Fire USA leader Todd Bentley have now snowballed to include reports from victims overseas, according to Stephen Powell, the estranged protégé of the popular and controversial faith healer, whom he dismissed in a report last Thursday as “not fit for public ministry.” Continue reading
“[E]ven when these employees believe that their most strongly-held personal convictions might be served by an unauthorized disclosure, the FBI depends on them not to disclose sensitive information. Former Director Comey failed to live up to this responsibility, By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees—and the many thousands more former FBI employees—who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.”
(Gregg Re – Fox News) A scathing inspector general report released Thursday said that fired FBI Director James Comey violated bureau policies by drafting, leaking and retaining memos documenting discussions with President Trump. Continue reading
“Various photos online also show members of Bethel visiting cemeteries to try to soak up the anointing of the deceased, including the graces of John G. Lake, Smith Wigglesworth and others. While Johnson has stated that he does not endorse the practice, and Vallotton once said that he had never heard of the idea, some note that photos online show Johnson’s wife Beni laying on the tombstone of C.S. Lewis and hugging the tombstone of Charles Finney.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News Network) Bethel Church, led by Bill Johnson, is raising new concerns after it posted to its Facebook page on Thursday that its program for those who struggle with homosexuality has never had the message of “all must change,” suggesting that those who “feel fulfilled and happy as [they] are” aren’t required by God to repent….
