Now The North Face? Another Brand Pushes the LGBTQ+ Agenda to Children

(J.W. Baker) Outdoor apparel brand The North Face has recently made headlines for its collaboration with a prominent figure from the “drag queen” community as part of their latest collection, “Out in Nature.” With Sodomite Pride Month approaching, the brand now offers clothing adorned with vibrant rainbow colors, including items for children.

In a promotional ad shared on The North Face’s Instagram page, a mustachioed man masquerading as what he thinks a woman looks like, named Pattie Gonia, leads the campaign by announcing the Summer of Pride tour…. Continue reading

Comer Says Biden Linked to $5 Million Bribe While VP, But FBI Is Obstructing Investigation

“The whistleblower disclosures indicated that the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) are in possession of an FD-1023 form describing an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national relating to the exchange of money for policy decisions.” 

(Matt Margolis – PJ Media) House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.), has claimed that an informant file he is seeking from the FBI connects President Biden to a $5 million bribery scheme during his time as vice president. Continue reading

Russell Moore Says Tim Keller Convinced Him to Stay at ERLC Because His Critics Were Just Old Insignificant White Men

(The Dissenter) Throughout the history of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), few figures stand out as provocatively as Russell Moore, whose tenure blatantly showcased the insidious creep of progressive ideology into the nation’s largest non-Catholic denomination. His role in the SBC’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), particularly during the incendiary 2016 Presidential Election, was a revelation of the former Democrat staffer, Russell Moore’s personal progressive agenda in stark contradiction with the deeply ingrained conservatism of Southern Baptists. Continue reading

Rick Warren Casually Lies About John MacArthur in Russell Moore Interview

“Warren is a liar, and his deceit should surprise no one.”

(Protestia) It doesn’t take much to remind ourselves how catastrophically bad a preacher and teacher Rick Warren is. Famous for peddling to the church the poison and spiritual strychnine that is The Purpose Driven Life for over thirty years- a damaging and unbiblical theology that has seeped into tens of thousands of churches, he was mostly dormant for a the last decade, but then has reinserted himself into the conversation as a warrior for women preachers. Continue reading

How Biden’s DHS Is Weaponizing an Anti-Terror Program Against Christians, Conservatives & the GOP

(Luis Cornelio and Tim Kilcullen – MRC) MRC Free Speech America, as part of its new Freedom of Information Act investigations, has learned how the Biden administration is weaponizing a government-funded anti-terrorism grant program in an effort to destroy conservatives, Christians and the Republican Party.

Under the Trump administration, the “Targeted Violence & Terrorism Prevention Grant Program” (TVTP) was used to prevent terrorism, but it was revamped under the Biden administration and renamed to provide funding for localities to combat “all forms of terrorism and targeted violence.”… Continue reading

The Unsettling Exodus: Why Evangelicals are Turning from the Scriptures

“As Christians, our primary allegiance is to God and His Word, regardless of how countercultural or unpopular that may be. The Scriptures are not mere optional extras or decorative embellishments to the Christian faith, but its vital heartbeat, the only means by which we know and love Christ.”

(The Dissenter) In the vast and varied expanse of the religious landscape, a disquieting trend has emerged in the Evangelical world: an unsettling departure from the bedrock of their faith, the Scriptures. Through the lens of this unsettling narrative, Andy Stanley, a renowned evangelical pastor, emerges as a notable example. Known for his controversial ideas, Stanley propounds teachings that send tremors across the theological divide, implying a shift away from scriptural fidelity. Continue reading

The Truth About Diversity and the Terrifying Reason the Commie Left Is Pushing It

“Watch this brief video that explains how the “demoralization stage will leave Americans not believing reality (such as a man can be a woman) — and how successful the Soviets were at the time of this interview, which was roughly 1984. He then explains the next three steps. It’s the most important video you may ever watch.”

(Kevin Downey JR. – PJ Media) Anything being pushed by globalists — especially the evil commie clowns at the World Economic Forum (WEF) — requires a closer look. So, I thought I’d look into their dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusivity (DEI) which they’ve been hell-bent on gavaging down our throats. Continue reading

The Left Has Pushed the Envelope

“All these implosions are not just shocking but surreal. Why are our government, corporations, and popular culture colluding in mass suicide — to the delight of our enemies like Communist China?”

(Victor Davis Hanson – American Greatness) The Left is waging a full-fledged cultural revolution against traditional America. And the Maoist results are often as absurd as they are terrifying.”

Special-counsel John Durham just issued his final report on wrongdoing within the FBI, CIA, and the Department of Justice. Continue reading

Connecticut Passes Bill to Ban ‘Discrimination’ Against ‘Minor Attracted Persons’

“Many critics say that this “updated” definition would by extension allow the state to aid and abet pedophilic predators.”

(Catholic Voices) On May 9, the Connecticut House of Representatives passed a bill that would effectively expand the definition of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation to include “discrimination” against so-called “minor-attracted persons.” Continue reading

Matt Chandler Expels Church After Pastors Criticize Acts 29 for Promotion of Transgenderism

(The Dissenter) Earlier this year, The Dissenter reported on the expulsion of Pastors Chase Davis and Matt Patrick from the Acts 29 Network exposing a critical juncture in the Network’s trajectory, one that warranted a close examination. As we reported earlier this year, Davis and Patrick voiced their concerns about the Network’s promotion of unbiblical ideologies, such as transgenderism. What followed was not a robust theological debate, but rather a troubling disregard for their concerns and their abrupt removal from the network. Continue reading

Lauren Daigle’s Faith Deconstruction for Fame

“Daigle views the church as the villain in this story for demanding orthopraxis. She views the rebellious son as a victim who is rejected by the church for being a homosexual.”

(Ray Fava – Evangelical Dark Web) Celebrity culture is toxic even within “Christianity.” People who arose through seemingly honest intentions, portending themselves as believers only for the facade to be revealed over time as they acquire wealth and fame. Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) is loaded with numerous figures who through fame revealed themselves to be counterfeit…. Continue reading

Calls to Boycott Target Intensify as they Push LGBTQ+ Propaganda to Children

(Protestia) Retail giant Target is about to get an elbow to the head, financially speaking, as conservative and Christian consumers have rallied to strongly oppose the store’s LGBTQ-themed children’s apparel, books, and accessories.

The recent addition of “tuck-friendly” bathing suits and chest binders for “transgender” children to their collection has ignited a storm of criticism from conservative commentators who rightly argue that the items are inappropriate for young audiences…. Continue reading

Bombshell: Tucker’s prepared monologue for the night he was pulled off the air addressed Ray Epps…

“Thanks to a new stunning revelation, things are getting really interesting. In a recent eye-opening tweet by Tucker’s autobiographer, Chadwick Moore, he revealed that Tucker’s monologue for April 24th was written in response to Ray Epps’ 60 Minutes interview and delved deeper into the January 6th farce.”

(Revolver) We’ve finally learned what Tucker intended to say the night of Monday, April 24th, when he was pulled from Fox News. As you may remember, CBS “60 Minutes” aired a biased segment on Sunday, April 23, showcasing Ray Epps and criticizing Revolver and Tucker Carlson for their bombshell coverage of the events of January 6th and the questionable nature of Epps’ role in the so-called Capitol breach. Continue reading

The Accolades Given to Tim Keller Reveals an Alarming Trend Within Evangelicalism

(The Dissenter) Treading carefully not to seem as though we revel in the death of another human being—we don’t—we do feel as though enough time has passed to pour water on the fire surrounding the idolatry of a man who was ashamed of the gospel. Tim Keller was an influential pastor and author, but he was also a divisive figure who dramatically overstepped the bounds of traditional biblical teaching. His ministry, centered at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, was characterized by a troubling emphasis on social justice, a concept deeply entangled with contemporary political ideologies and far removed from the true Gospel message. Continue reading

Are You Praying to the Only True God?

(Marsha West – Christian Research Network)  Christianity holds to the view that prayer is of the leading of the Holy Spirit. Octavius Winslow put it in these words:

It must be acknowledged by the spiritual mind that all true prayer is of the leading of the Spirit; that He is the author of all real approach of the soul to God. All true prayer is put into words by the Spirit. He is the Author of prayer in the soul.

The scriptures speak of God the Holy Spirit residing within all who believe in the Son of God. The Spirit guides, instructs and empowers believers. (John 14:16-17) As well, the “Spirit of truth” confirms everything about Jesus. (John 15:26) The unregenerate (unsaved) person is not Spirit filled. God does not hear anyone’s prayer unless it is put into words by the Holy Spirit. So if we want our prayers to be heard and answered we must pray to the right God.

“This is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” (John 17:3).

Before I move on it’s necessary to briefly explain what other world religions believe about God. Continue reading

Kari Lake Attorney’s Closing Argument: At Least 70K Votes Not Verified, Election Must Be Set Aside

Your Honor, the election was unlawful,” Olsen told the judge. “[Arizona statute] 16-550 was not complied with. Defendants don’t dispute our expert. They don’t dispute the evidence.”

(Randy DeSoto – Western Journal) Kari Lake attorney Kurt Olsen argued in his closing argument in her election challenge case Friday that at least 70,000 mail-in ballots were not properly verified in accordance with Arizona law, and therefore the election must be set aside. Continue reading

Unless You Repent, You Will All Likewise Perish!

“The phrase “unless you repent, you will all likewise perish” is repeated twice (Luke 13:3,5, ESV), lending it a profound weight. The repetition is a method of emphasis in Hebraic literature, and here, it accentuates the inescapability and dire necessity of repentance.”

(The Dissenter) In the heart of the Gospel of Luke, we encounter a passage of Scripture that undeniably reaffirms the sovereignty of God, the sinfulness of humanity, and the inescapable need for repentance. Luke 13:1-5 presents an incisive discourse by Jesus Christ that simultaneously dispels the notion of suffering as divine retribution for specific sins and urges all sinners toward repentance. Continue reading

Justice Gorsuch Broadsides Officials at All Levels for Massive ‘Intrusions’ on Americans’ Civil Liberties


“Fear and the desire for safety are powerful forces. They can lead to a clamor for action — almost any action — as long as someone does something to address a perceived threat. A leader or an expert who claims he can fix everything, if only we do exactly as he says, can prove an irresistible force.” 

(The Western Journal) The Supreme Court got rid of a pandemic-related immigration case with a single sentence.

Justice Neil Gorsuch had a lot more to say, however, leveling harsh criticism at how governments, from small towns to the nation’s capital, responded to COVID-19. Continue reading

Fox’s Chief Counsel Relays a Message to Tucker

“Taking the Fox attorney at his word, what about the leaks of behind-the-scenes footage? Those leaks had to come from someone at Fox. Are they investigating, or was Irena the one who did it and will now stop?”

(Mary Dowling – Independent Sentinel) Fox News Chief Legal Counsel Viet Dinh reportedly called someone close to Tucker Carlson. He wanted to relay a message to him about the leaks, reports the Daily Caller. Continue reading

Featured LifeWay Speaker Who Says God Raised Up Homosexuals as the Most Credible Voices on Sexuality Defends Rachel Gilson

(The Dissenter) Yesterday, The Dissenter broke the story that a Southern Baptist Convention-approved women’s conference during the annual meeting would be featuring a speaker who preached a sermon a few years ago stating that homosexuals who are in a “gay marriage” might stay together because “God hates divorce.” This same woman, Rachel Gilson, also said during a podcast that homosexual “Christians” can live out their sexuality faithfully whether they are attracted to men, women, both, or even potted plants. Continue reading

Tim Keller Enters Hospice Care: ‘He Has Little Time Left’

(Protestia) Renown Pastor Tim Keller has left the hospital where he was being treated for complications from pancreatic cancer and is receiving hospice care at home, according to his son who posted the update on social media.

Sharing that “He has expressed many times through prayer his desire to go home to be with Jesus. His family is very sad because we all wanted more time, but we know he has very little at this point.” Continue reading

Hang All the Members of the Liars’ Club?

“In the great scheme of lying things, George Santos is a prevaricating minnow who was snagged to great acclaim because the lying sharks swim and circle with impunity.”

(Victor Davis Hanson – American Greatness) Federal prosecutors last week announced the indictment of U.S. Representative George Santos (R-N.Y.) on a host of charges, including misuse of federal campaign funds and wire fraud, almost all of them resulting from his pathological lies.

Certainly, Santos deserved the attention of prosecutors for lying on federal documents and affidavits that may have helped him win a congressional seat as well as personal lucre. Continue reading

Spurgeon: You Will Never See Me Again, This Fight is Killing Me

Churches were starting to fill up, but the numbers were not from those who were interested in the truth of God’s Word, but rather for amusement and entertainment. Yes, the numbers soared, but so did the problems. The churches were being filled with the world because the church was behaving just like the world!

(Jeremiah Cry Ministries) “You will never see me again, this fight is killing me” —Charles Spurgeon

The Above quote was written to a friend by Charles Spurgeon in the midst of what was called the downgrade. For nearly 40 years, Spurgeon had preached the gospel in London. Continue reading
