Vimeo Voids Christian Content; Canada is Harvesting the Organs of Euthanasia Patients...more

The horrifying intersection of assisted suicide and organ donation: Culture of death advances in Canada Listen at website-Albert Mohler podcast

Report: China Aborted 336 Million Babies Since 1971  China recently released statistics that reveal that there have been 336 million abortions performed in the country over the past four decades.

According to The Gospel Coalition, this staggering number means that China has sanctioned more abortions in in the last four decades--many of which are forced on women--than the entire population of the world at the time of the Crusades (c. 1100 AD).

Although many are likely familiar with China’s strict “one-child” policy (now a “two-child” policy as of 2015), the actual impact of that policy will likely still be a shock.

Canada is Harvesting the Organs of Euthanasia Patients ...But even supporters acknowledge the potential unintended consequences. Allard and Fortin warned in their article that encouraging organ harvesting could put pressure on those diagnosed with terminal illness to consider assisted suicide as an alternative sense of purpose...

Vimeo Voids Christian Content
Vimeo, a leading online film production and sharing outlet, pulled the entire 850-count video catalog of Pure Passion ministry this month after determining the video content “demeaned” homosexuals.

David Foster, founder and executive director of Pure Passion, disputes the allegation and said Vimeo simply did not like his ministry’s message that Jesus saves and heals all sexual brokenness.

Foster’s encounter with the web-based platform is nothing new, according to a spokesman for National Religious Broadcasters. It is part of a disturbing trend of censorship of conservative and Christian messages online by new media, or sharing sites that bypass traditional channels to reach an intended audience, the NRB and other observers say. With no laws forcing new media to host all content, online ministries like Foster’s are at the mercy of secular progressive gatekeepers...

Really...Hitler's "Mein Kampf" is a Best-Seller in India?  I was quite surprised last week when I learned that Mein Kampf is a best seller in India – the world’s largest democracy. In hindsight, I shouldn’t have been too surprised.

In the last three years, India has leaped in ranking from the 28th worst to the 15th worst country for severe Christian persecution, according to the World Watch List. It’s not a coincidence that Prime Minister Modi was also elected three years ago.

Modi’s and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are avowed adherents to Hindutva. Hindutva is a radical, highly politicized form of Hinduism that seeks to create a pure Hindu race, nation and culture...

The Christian landscape...

Convict Ruins
The Christian landscape is strewn with the wreckage of derelict, half-built towers—the ruins of those who began to build and were unable to finish. All too many people still ignore Christ’s warning and undertake to follow him without first pausing to reflect on the cost of doing so. The result is the great scandal of so-called nominal Christianity. ...John RW Stott image

States allowed to defund PP; Students instructed to write essay from 9/11 terrorists view...more

VP Mike Pence casts tie-breaking vote to allow states to defund Planned Parenthood 
The bill erases a regulation imposed by former President Barack Obama shortly before he left office that lets states deny family planning funds to organizations only if they are incapable of providing those services. Some states have passed laws in recent years denying the money to groups that provide abortions.

Passage gives Republicans and anti-abortion groups a needed victory just six days after the party’s highly touted health care overhaul disintegrated in the House due to GOP divisions. Besides erasing much of Obama’s 2010 health care law, the failed House bill would have blocked federal funds for Planned Parenthood for a year...

Vimeo Allows Jihadists and Porn But Shuts Down Ex-Gay Christian Testimony    If Jesus has changed your life and set you free from homosexual practice, your testimony is not welcome on Vimeo — not now, not ever. And if you see homosexuality as another aspect of sexual brokenness, something for which Jesus died and something from which you can be healed, your opinion is not welcome on Vimeo. Case closed, door shut, end of subject...
Vimeo Declares War on Gospel Transformation

LA school budget cuts to Walter Reed Middle School due to high white student percentage sparks outrage ..."Thankfully we're going to keep our librarian. We're going to keep our nurse, but we may lose a few teachers, but not as many as we once thought," said Sheila Edmiston, one student's parent.

Several jobs will still be lost and class sizes could grow. For many parents, the race-based reason of "too many white students" has made the cuts more difficult to swallow...

Students instructed to write essay on 9/11 from terrorists’ perspective A recent assignment in an international studies course at Iowa State University asked students to write a historical account of the 9/11 terrorist attacks from the perspective of Al-Qaeda.

“Write a paper that gives a historical account of 911 from the perspective of the terrorist network. In other words, how might Al-Qaeda or a non-Western historian describe what happened,” stated the assignment, a copy of which was obtained by The College Fix.

“Don’t worry about the fact you don’t agree with the terrorists, the point of the exercise is to consider completely different perspectives,” the assignment adds...

The Muslim Brotherhood: Peddling Sharia as Social Justice
◾Human Rights Watch, an organization that is supposed to look out for victims of human rights abuses, not abusers of human rights is begging US decision makers not to designate the Muslim Brotherhood -- which, if it had its way, would take away everyone's human rights and substitute them with sharia law -- a foreign terrorist organization.

◾"Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Quran is our law; Jihad is our way; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope". — Muslim Brotherhood motto.

◾Conveniently, Hamas -- which according to article two of its charter, is "one of the wings of Moslem Brotherhood in Palestine" -- is, it seems, working on a new charter. The new charter would declare that Hamas is not a part of the Muslim Brotherhood, despite its always having been so. That way, is the Muslim Brotherhood's "narrative" of newfound "nonviolence" suddenly supposed to become believable?

Nigeria: Christians Denied Aid in Refugee Camps; Montreal imam calls for Jews to be killed...more

Nigeria: Christians Denied Aid in Refugee Camps-"They will openly tell you that the relief is not for Christians."  ...The Christian Post reports that several displacement camps have communicated that food and other aid “is not for Christians.”

Christian persecution charity Open Doors is monitoring the situation in Nigeria. Bishop William Naga is one of the many refugees seeking aid. He recently told Open Doors, "The governor did his best when the Christians had to flee in 2014 and 2015. But when the care of the camps was handed over to other organizations, the discrimination started. They will give food to the refugees, but if you are a Christian they will not give you food. They will openly tell you that the relief is not for Christians."...

Montreal mosque criticized after visiting imam calls for Jews to be killed   A Montreal mosque is facing a police complaint and rebukes from the larger Muslim community after a video of an imam delivering a sermon in which he asks for Jews to be killed surfaced online.

The sermon took place at the Dar Al-Arqam Mosque in the city's Saint-Michel neighbourhood on Dec. 23, 2016.

The video was posted to the mosque's YouTube channel three days later. The imam in the video is Jordanian cleric Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr — he was reportedly an invited guest of the mosque.

In the video, the imam recites in Arabic the verse: "O Muslim, O servant of Allah, O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him."

CBC independently verified the speech and its translation...

Political Islam implies a constitutional order fundamentally incompatible with the US Constitution   ...Let it be said explicitly: The Islamists’ program is fundamentally incompatible with the U.S. Constitution, religious tolerance, the equality of men and women, the tolerance of different sexual orientations, and other fundamental human rights.

The biggest challenge the United States faces in combating political Islam, however, is the extent to which agents of dawa can exploit the constitutional and legal protections that guarantee American citizens freedom of religion and freedom of speech—freedoms that would of course be swept away if the Islamists achieved their goals.

In 2010, one senior American intelligence analyst summed up our predicament: “In the US there are First Amendment issues we’re cognizant of. It’s not a crime to radicalize, only when it turns to violence . . . America is thus vulnerable to a threat that is not only diversifying, but arguably intensifying.”...

Princeton Seminary Disses Pastor Timothy Keller ...Neither in Keller's writings nor his sermons have I detected the slightest inclination toward the political. He preaches the Gospel and the entire Bible with clarity and inspiration. His insights are invaluable and routinely profound. He is truly gifted and seems to practice the Christlike humility he preaches, not seeking to make himself a celebrity or otherwise leverage his talents to redirect the focus from Scripture to himself.

His disqualifying sin was not that he joined the now defunct Moral Majority or publicly endorsed some evil Republican politician. Nor was it that he rejected any of the church's doctrinal tenets. It was not that his teachings might lead people away from the church's mission to spread the Gospel. Rather, it was apparently his refusal to deviate from Scripture and conform his teachings to the current liberal political line on certain hot-button issues.

Certain people raised Cain about Keller's "conservative positions" and the seminary decided it better renege on offering the award. Keller is a leader in the Presbyterian Church in America, which, according to Princeton Theological Seminary President Craig Barnes, "prevents women and LGBTQ+ persons from full participation in the ordained Ministry of Word and Sacrament." The Seminary is part of a different denomination -- the Presbyterian Church (USA), whose position on this issue conflicts with Keller and the PCA...

Psychiatry Professor: 'Transgenderism' Is Mass Hysteria Similar To 1980s-Era Junk Science   Consider the remarkable phenomenon of transgenderism. A disorder of gender identity that afflicts a minuscule number of Americans has become a polarizing cultural cause celebre. Its influence—in capturing public attention and demanding social change—has been extraordinary, out of all proportion to the numbers of the gender-dissatisfied.

While the political left has fully embraced the transgender agenda as a “civil right” opposed by only the bigoted and hateful, many people see the movement as a concerted attack on traditional social mores and customs, an “in your face” assault on conventional standards, practices, and morality....

Judge OK’s Petition for America’s First ‘Genderless’ Person
...The 27-year-old formerly known as Patrick Abbatiello, now legally designated agender, also got legal approval to change names, now going only by “Patch,” no surname. That name also serves as a pronoun, Patch explained to the local NBC affiliate this week.
“Even gender-neutral pronouns don’t feel as if they fit me,” Patch said. “I feel no identity or closeness with any pronouns I’ve come across. What describes me is my name.”...
