The Intolerant Left: “Thou Shalt Kill”; Germany Knowingly Let in Migrants with Fake Passports...more links

Survey Finds Most American Christians Are Actually Heretics
Evangelical writer Eric Metaxas remarked on BreakPoint last week that if Americans took a theology exam, their only hope of passing would be if God graded on a curve. He’s right. In knowing both the content of the Bible and the doctrinal foundations of Christianity, we Americans aren’t just at the bottom of our class. We are, as Ross Douthat argues in his book, “Bad Religion,” a nation of heretics.

A survey of 3,000 people conducted by LifeWay Research and commissioned by Ligonier Ministries found that although Americans still overwhelmingly identify as “Christian,” startling percentages of the nation embrace ancient errors condemned by all major Christian traditions. These are not minor points of doctrine, but core ideas that define Christianity itself. The really sad part? Even when we’re denying the divinity of Christ, we can’t keep our story straight. Americans talking about theology sound about as competent as country singers rapping...

Closed US restaurants, damaged homes: Matthew may cost $10B   ...All told, the storm probably caused $10 billion in damage, according to an estimate from Goldman Sachs. Insurance companies will likely be liable for about $4 billion to $6 billion of that total, according to an estimate Saturday by CoreLogic, a real estate data provider.

But the figures suggest Matthew's effect on the broader national economy will be minimal. Though damage estimates are usually revised higher after more comprehensive assessments, the current figures would still make Matthew the 22nd-worst storm since World War II, Goldman estimates...

The First Commandment of the Intolerant Left: “Thou Shalt Kill”    I believe Leftism is essentially a religion to those who profess it. And the First Commandment of Leftism is "Thou Shalt Kill."

A recent case in point is that a Swiss federal court recently ruled that a nursing home run by the Salvation Army must allow assisted suicides at its facility, according to The Salvation Army challenged the Swiss Law because...well...salvation and argued that forcing it to take part in assisted suicides went against its religion. But the court predictably ruled against the Christian group.

This is not an anomaly. In the United States, four states have legalized assisted suicide. And while there's no major push yet to make doctors forced accomplices, that will surely follow. Do not doubt this please. Once death becomes a right, conscience takes a back seat.

Right now, the death fetishists are demanding that Christian groups pay for abortifacients in their insurance coverage. When Catholics argue that they believe all life is sacred, the Death fetishists say it's not life at all. They either move the goalposts and say it's not life until the fertilized egg implants in the case of contraception or they just make something up and call it "potential life" until the mother decides whether to abort (because that's science.)...

Survivor claims deadly Connecticut plane crash was intentional; FBI investigating   ...The New York Times and The Hartford Courant identified the plane's passenger -- the man who died -- as 28-year-old Feras Freitekh. He entered the U.S. in 2012 on an M1 visa for flight school and at some point he also aquired an F1 visa for language school, CBS News reported. Freitekh was issued a pilot's license in May 2015 and was certified to fly a single-engine plane....
Germany Knowingly Let in Migrants with Fake Passports  

...Law enforcement in Germany are extremely concerned by the numbers of migrants who have entered the country on false documentation. The Federation of German Detectives (BDK) has called on BAMF to inform them when forged documents are found, with vice chairman of the BDK Michael Bohl saying that it wasn’t up to the discretion of BAMF to decide if the law had been broken or not.

Mr. Bohl went on to stress that Islamic State, who have already smuggled in fighters during the migrant crisis, could use fake passports to create bank accounts and set up a finance network in Germany. He warned that migrants could wire their government refugee benefits to the terrorist organization...
