The Left Hates You. Act Accordingly…What Are YOU Gonna Do ‘Bout It?

american-flag-destroyed

They hate you.

Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will understand what you need to be ready to do.

You are normal, and therefore a heretic. You refuse to bow to their idols, to subscribe to their twisted catechisms, to praise their false gods. This is unforgivable. You must burn.

Radical Erdogan Builds 9000 Mosques & Bans Christian Liturgy

 

erdogan-dictator

We see Radical Islam on the rise everywhere and what’s even more disturbing is that these radicals have penetrated almost every part of Europe and America.  Their clear intent is to have more kids than the women of their hosting nations.  Demographics indicate that Sweden is almost a gone case and that it has become the rape capital of Europe. England could follow a similar path in 10-20 years as Muslim women are giving birth to 4 kids on average to every 1.5 children European couples have.    The videos below illustrate how the situation is going from bad to worse.

Then we have Radical Insane Erdogan, the wannabe Sultan whose ambition it is to promote Radical Islam as far as he can. He has built the largest Mosque in the world, and it’s not in Turkey, but it has been constructed in America. Now we find out that he has built almost 9,000 new mosques in Turkey and is banning Christian liturgy.  If the Europe does not wake up to Radical Islam, there will be no Europe to wake up to in the years to come.  The only places that are actively destroying the jihadists are Russia and China

A total of 8,985 mosques were built between 2005 and 2015 by the Turkish government over the last decade in Turkey, according to statistics released by Turkey’s Religious Affairs Directorate

While the Turkish government has built so many mosques across the country with state funds, it has banned Orthodox Christian liturgy in the Sumela Monastery, a historic site in Trabzon.

 

“Trabzon was settled by Greeks probably by the 7th century BC,” writes researcher Sam Topalidis for the website Pontos World. “Trabzon was the ancient capital of the Greek speaking Komnenos Byzantine Kingdom (1204–1461). It survived until 1461, eight years after the fall of Byzantine Constantinople when both localities fell to the Ottoman Turks.”

According to Topalidis, Trabzon’s Muslim population increased dramatically under the Ottoman rule due to:

Muslims moving into the city (Most of the Trabzon’s Muslims were involuntary immigrants)
Deportations of Christians out of the city, probably to Istanbul
Christians converting to Islam, probably for fear of deportation
“However, the most important reason for the conversions was probably due to the higher taxes paid by Christians (compared to Muslims), a strong economic incentive for the poorest Christians,” writes Topalidis.

The tax he refers to is the “jizya tax” — money paid by Christians and Jews in order to be allowed to survive and to keep practising their religion, according to Islamic lawFull Story

President Trump Vows to Protect Religeous Liberty

 

President Trump vowed Thursday to “defend and protect” religious liberty on multiple fronts – describing his recent immigration executive order as part of that goal – during his first appearance as president at the traditional National Prayer Breakfast.

In wide-ranging remarks, the president spoke about the uniting power of faith, honored members of the U.S. military, and even took a swipe at his successor on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” Arnold Schwarzenegger.

“It’s been a total disaster,” Trump said of the show since Schwarzenegger took over as host, reprising his taunts that the ratings have gone “down the tubes” – after he was introduced at the breakfast by “Apprentice” creator Mark Burnett.

“I want to just pray for Arnold if we can,” joked Trump, who is listed in the “Apprentice” credits as the show’s executive producer.

The movie star soon posted a video rejoinder on Twitter, saying, “Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV because you’re such an expert in ratings and I take over your job. Then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”

After his ratings aside Thursday morning, the president moved on to describe his administration’s policies toward national security and immigration as part of an overarching fight for religious liberty.

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION ON RISE AROUND GLOBE

Amid criticism of Friday’s executive order suspending the U.S. refugee program and restricting travel from seven mostly Muslim countries, Trump said his administration is developing a new screening system so that those who want to spread violence and intolerance are not admitted.

“My administration will do everything in its power to defend and protect religious liberty in our land.”

– President Trump

“We will not allow a beachhead of intolerance to spread in our nation,” he said. “… We want people to love us and to love our values.”

Trump also described terrorism as a “fundamental threat to religious freedom” – saying peace-loving Muslims are being targeted and Christians are the victim of “genocide” in the Middle East – as he vowed: “It must be stopped.”

“My administration will do everything in its power to defend and protect religious liberty in our land,” he said.

Trump also used the faith forum to reiterate a vow from his campaign to eliminate the so-called Johnson Amendment, which bars some tax-exempt groups (including religious groups) from taking firm positions on political candidates.

“I will get rid of and totally destroy the Johnson Amendment,” he said.

The breakfast itself marked a moment of calm amid a turbulent start to Trump’s presidency.

His administration since Friday has been battling critics over his executive order on immigration. He unveiled his Supreme Court nominee Tuesday night, touching off an instant battle with Democrats hinting they may try and filibuster – as they simultaneously slow-walk consideration of a slew of remaining Cabinet nominees. Trump’s secretaries of Treasury, Health and more still are not in place.

At the same time, Trump is plowing ahead with a string of meetings with business leaders, phone calls (some of them tense) with foreign heads of state and other executive orders meant to jolt the economy and boost national security. A day earlier, his White House put Iran “on notice” over recent missile tests, a message Trump reiterated on Twitter shortly before Thursday’s prayer breakfast.

Shoring up a key U.S. alliance, Trump also met on the sidelines of the prayer breakfast with King Abdullah II of Jordan.

Trump Vows To Protect Religeous Liberty

State of Georgia demands pastor turn over sermons | Fox News

A lay minister who is suing the Georgia Department of Public Health for religious discrimination has been ordered by the state’s attorney general to relinquish his sermons to the government, according to federal court documents.

“Please produce a copy of your sermon notes and/or transcripts,” Attorney General Samuel Olens wrote to attorneys representing Dr. Eric Walsh.

Click here to join Todd’s American Dispatch: a must-read for Conservatives!

Dr. Walsh said he will not comply with the request.

“No government has the right to require a pastor to turn over his sermons,” Walsh said. “I cannot and will not give up my sermons unless I am forced to do so.”

Walsh, a Seventh-day Adventist lay minister had been hired in May 2014 by as a District Health Director with the Georgia Department of Public Health. A week later, a government official asked him to submit copies of his sermons for review. He complied and two days later he was fired.

His attorneys said the government was curious about sermons Dr. Walsh delivered on health, marriage, sexuality, world religions, science and creationism. He also preached on what the Bible says regarding homosexuality.

He has since filed a federal lawsuit charging state officials with engaging in religious discrimination.

“He was fired for something he said in a sermon,” attorney Jeremy Dys told me. “If the government is allowed to fire someone over what he said in his sermons, they can come after any of us for our beliefs on anything.”

 

Dr. Walsh has assembled a powerhouse legal team comprised of Parks, Chesin & Walbert along with First Liberty Institute, one of the nation’s most prominent religious liberty law firms.

“It’s an incredible intrusion on the sanctity of the pulpit,” Dys said. “This is probably the most invasive reach into the pulpit by the state that I’ve ever seen.”

Neither the attorney general nor his communication director responded to telephone calls or email correspondence.

Dys said the government’s request came as part of the process to build their case against his client. The request, he said, carries the same force of law as a subpoena.

“Pastors and rabbis across the country – especially in the state of Georgia should be frightened that a state would demand all the sermon notes and transcripts of a pastor,” he said. “This is unprecedented.”

It may be unprecedented, but is it illegal?

“I think it is wrong for a state to demand that a pastor turn over his sermons at any time,” Dys said. “It was wrong for the state to ask Dr Walsh for his sermons as part of the job application and hiring process. It was wrong for them to turn around and fire him when they listened to those sermons. And it is wrong now for them to demand that he turn over all the sermons and sermon notes he ever produced going back to when he was 18 years old.”

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins condemned the state’s demand calling it “an alarming display of government intrusion into the sanctity of the church, pastor’s study and pulpit.”

“This is something that I would have expected to see in a communist country, not America,” Perkins told me. “Government scrutiny of speech in the pulpit is unconstitutional, and unconscionable.”

He called on Gov. Nathan Deal, a Republican, to “correct this egregious overreach of the state into church affairs.”

Dr. Walsh also gained the support of Emir Caner, president of Truett-McConnell University, a Christian school based in Cleveland, Georgia.

“A new era has come to our shores, a time where government finds it acceptable to suppress the freedom of religion even to the extent of requesting a minister’s sermons,” Caner said. “As an ordained minister, I know that this is not merely an assault on the messenger, but on the very message of our Sacred Scriptures.”

Caner correctly noted that the government seems to exclusively target one faith – biblical Christianity.

“What the government fails to recognize is that ministers of the Gospel are not hirelings of the state, but ambassadors for our Lord,” he said.

Dr. Walsh was catapulted into the national spotlight when he was invited to deliver the 2014 commencement address at Pasadena City College in California.

Walsh, who was then the director of the city’s public health department, came under fierce scrutiny from LGBT activists and students after someone found online copies of his sermons. He backed out of the speaking engagement – but critics persisted and he was forced to resign his post – after reaching a financial settlement with the city.

Shortly afterwards, he applied for the position in Georgia.

“The state of Georgia fired him for something he said in a sermon,” Dys told me. “It’s almost like the state ransacking the pastor’s study trying to find evidence in a desperate attempt to justify their illegal behavior.”

Dys said the attorney general could ask a judge to enforce their request. If Dr. Walsh still refused, he could face contempt of court.

“No one in America should want a pastor being held in contempt for refusing to give up one of his sermons to the state of Georgia,” he said.

Military court claims power to decide ‘importance’ of religion

REALLY?  CLEARLY, there are many people in this country who need a basic history course explaining how and why this country was founded…  Lance Cpl. Monifa Sterling, our prayers are with you.

 

In a stunning ruling that likely will be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, a military court has decided it can determine whether or not a certain religious practice is “important” enough to be protected.

“This is absolutely outrageous,” said Kelly Shackelford, president of First Liberty Institute, after the decision in the case against a Marine who posted a Bible verse at her work station.

“A few judges decided they could strip a Marine of her constitutional rights just because they didn’t think her beliefs were important enough to be protected,” he said. “If they can court-martial a Marine over a Bible verse, what’s to stop them from punishing service members for reading the Bible, [talking] about their faith, or praying?”

“The Liberty Amendments” is the blueprint on how to fix our broken government by Mark Levin, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of “Liberty and Tyranny” and “Ameritopia.” Order it today at WND’s Superstore.

WND reported at the end of 2015 when a lower military court delivered the judgment against Lance Cpl. Monifa Sterling, who, at three places in her work space, posted a phrase from Isaiah 54:17, “No weapons formed against me shall prosper.”

According to the brief, her supervisor said, “I don’t like the tone” and told her to remove the verses.

“When Sterling declined, her supervisor took them down at the end of the duty day. Sterling reprinted and re-posted the messages, but she found them in the trash the next morning. She was then court-martialed,” according to the complaint.

“No one in our military who goes to work every day to defend our freedoms should then be court-martialed for exercising those very freedoms,” said Daniel Briggs, a former Air Force JAG officer now with the Alliance Defending Freedom, at the time.

“This case is about Monifa, but it is also about every American who puts on the uniform in service to this country. The question is whether they will be allowed to exercise their faith in the military, or whether they will be denied the same constitutionally protected freedoms they have volunteered to defend and are willing to die for.”

The latest development, this week, was an affirmation by the Court of Appeals of the Armed Forces’ punishment of Sterling.

The next step will be an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, her legal team said.

“This is a real-life example of why judges shouldn’t play theologians,” said Daniel Blomberg, legal counsel of the Becket Fund, which filed a friend-of-the-court brief supporting Sterling.

“Here, a few judges concluded that keeping scripture nearby isn’t ‘important,’ even though more than half of the world’s population belong to religions that teach the exact opposite. Avoiding obvious errors like this is why RFRA protects all religious beliefs, not just beliefs that government officials deem ‘important.’”

The organization pointed out that Sterling’s co-workers were permitted to keep nonreligious messages on their desks. And it argued her actions were protected by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

One judge on the military panel disagreed with the punishment, noting that federal law “does not empower judges to curtail various manifestations of sincere religious belief simply by arbitrarily deciding that a certain act was not ‘important’ to the believer’s exercise of religion.”

The Becket Fund’s brief was on behalf of religious faiths, including Anglican, Catholic, Jewish, Lutheran, Mormon, Muslim, Presbyterian, Sikh and Southern Baptist.

“Last I checked, Marines weren’t afraid of anything – and they certainly don’t need to be afraid of religious liberty,” said Blomberg. “In fact, it was the military itself that taught our young country how protecting religious liberty is good for our nation, good for mission accomplishment.”

Mike Berry, director of military affairs for First Liberty, pointed out: “Gen. Patton famously prayed on the eve of battle. According to the majority [court] opinion, if Gen. Patton couldn’t prove how important praying was to him, he could be court-martialed for his prayer.”

Shackelford took up the argument.

“This is shameful, it’s wrong, and it sets a terrible precedent, jeopardizing the constitutional rights of every single man and woman in military service. We will appeal directly to the U.S. Supreme Court. This cannot be allowed to stand.”

The court’s dissenting minority pointed out the failings of the majority’s logic.

“At trial, LCpl Sterling adequately demonstrated that the actions for which she was being court-martialed constituted ‘religious’ conduct. [She] testified that both the substance and placement of her signs were inspired by her Christian faith. The slips of paper that LCpl Sterling placed on her workspace were organized in the form of the ‘trinity,’ an unmistakable Christian motif, and on them was printed a biblically inspired quotation: ‘No sword formed against me shall prosper.’

“There is no doubt that LCpl Sterling’s conduct required further analysis under the provisions of RFRA.”

The dissent warned: “It has long been recognized that courts are particularly ill equipped to govern what does or does not constitute ‘religion.’ … The majority opinion ventures beyond that which is necessary to decide the issue before us. In the course of doing so, the court not only fails to ensure the proper application of RFRA to LCpl Sterling’s specific case, it more generally imposes a legal framework that unnecessarily curtails the religious freedom of our nation’s servicemen.”

Before the decision was announced, Ron Crews, executive director of Chaplain Alliance for Religion Liberty, commented, “Congress and the courts have made it clear that religious freedom is truly our first freedom; it must not be watered down and should be burdened only in the most extreme circumstances.

“This is just as true in the military. Though it is a unique institution with a mission that must be accomplished, service members cannot be forced to check their faith when they put on the uniform. Their religious freedom is more precious than ever before and must be strongly defended. Those who are willing to give all deserve nothing less.”

Daily Audio News from Breitbart

The Liberal Progressive Democrats and Muslim Refugees coming into our America are the Hateful Violent Racist ones! This is a very good News session depicting on whats really going on out there.  I dont trust the majority of the Mainstream media but I use to trust Fox News which sadly has gone down the toilet with the Globalists agenda. I’ve been feeling like Trump is feeling like he is losing the Battle for us against all the Corrupt Politicians and World Leaders based on the fact of his recent statement that he may lose to Hillary but am praying he throws himself in the ring all the more fiercer. We cannot lose this election, we cannot give up the liberties of Conscious and our God given….not man given, rights to life, liberty and success. I will not hide my Bible around a Muslim either! I will not deny God or my faith because it offends them!  They need to leave if our way of life offends them! We need to invest not only our time, but whatever money we can donate to help Trump out. Hes our last hope!

 Governments To Christians: Don’t You Dare Speak Out Against The Sexual Sin In Society

Michael Snyder
The American Dream
July 20, 2016

In our upside down world, evil has become good and good has become evil. Once upon a time, everyone in society generally knew what was “right” and what was “wrong” even if they didn’t always abide by the rules. But now the rules have been totally flipped on their head.

If you choose to live a lifestyle that is morally wrong, you are celebrated by society, and if you choose to speak out against the sexual sin that is exploding everywhere around us then you are considered to be a “hater” and a “bigot”. In fact, governments all over the world are now passing “hate speech” laws that are making it a crime to speak out against sexual sin. With each passing year it gets even worse, and those pushing this agenda forward are never going to be satisfied until those standing up for Biblical truth are locked away in prison.

And I was not exaggerating when I said that sexual sin is “exploding” in our society. One example of this is the stunning growth of “polyamory”. The following comes from a recent article in the Guardian that highlighted how the city of Portland in particular has become a hotbed for those that are into the “poly lifestyle”…

Polyamory is the practice of intimate relationships involving more than two people with the consent of everyone involved. In recent years, polyamory is working its way to becoming a household term. Researchers have estimated that 4 to 5% of Americans practice some form of consensual non-monogamy. A 2014 blog post by Psychology Today revealed that 9.8 million people have agreed to allow satellite lovers in their relationships, which includes poly couples, swinging couples and others practicing sexual non-monogamy.

And in Portland – home to swingers’ clubs, the most strip bars per capita, and annual porn festivals – it seems you can’t throw a stone without finding a poly relationship. Although there’s no official data supporting an exact number, various Meetup groups boast a few thousand members each, while other Facebook groups have hundreds.

Another lifestyle choice that has been experiencing tremendous growth is bisexuality. According to the New York Post, one study of 30,000 U.S. adults found that the number of Americans that have dabbled on both sides of the fence has more than doubled since 1990…

Bisexuality is booming, with the number of people who bed men and women more than doubling, a study says.

Some 7.7 percent revealed they had bi romps in 2014, compared to 3.1 percent in 1990.

And it isn’t just the world that is embracing these alternative lifestyles.

Just check out what the western division of the United Methodist Church just decided to do

Representatives of the United Methodist Church have elected their first openly gay bishop, in defiance of church prohibitions on homosexuality.

Rev. Karen Oliveto, senior pastor of Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco, was elected bishop of the church’s Western Division at a conference Friday night in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“I think at this moment I have a glimpse of the realm of God,” 58-year-old Oliveto said after her election, according to a news story from the church. “Today we took a step closer to embody beloved community and while we may be moving there, we are not there yet. We are moving on to perfection.”

Of course a lot of Bible-believing Christians don’t like where things are headed, and they are speaking out about it. Unfortunately, this is becoming more difficult to do all over the world. National, state and local governments all over the planet are passing new “hate speech laws” that are extremely strict, and many of these new laws are specifically targeted at Christians.

So if you say the wrong thing at the wrong time in the wrong place, you could actually be hauled off to prison.

Just today, I came across an article that talked about how 60 homes in Germany were recently raided by police in a “hate speech” crackdown

Writing a blog or venting in social media about a topic deemed to be “Hate Speech” will leave yourselfgetting raided by the police in Germany. According to a report from Breitbart, German Police recently raided homes of 60 people suspected of writing what is deemed ‘hate’ speech on social media in Germany. This effort was coordinated by the Federal Criminal Police (BKA),consisting officers from 25 departments search across 14 states.

These police raids took place in efforts to fight against “verbal radicalisation”, according to the German government. These type of procedures have increased in the wake of Europe’s migrant crisis. BKA President Holger Münch said attacks on migrant shelters were the result of “radicalisation” on social media.

You may not think that such a thing could happen in North America, but you would be wrong.

In Canada, a new “hate speech” bill has just been introduced that would hit anyone found guilty of “hate speech” against transgender individuals with up to two years in prison

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced a bill that would criminalize anti-transgender speech, with violators receiving up to two years in prison.

The new bill, introduced May 17 on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, aims to amend the Canadian Criminal Code to expand the country’s “hate speech” prohibitions to include any public speech or communication that “promotes hatred” on the basis of “gender identity” or “gender expression.” It would also change the Canadian Human Rights Act to cover transgender people.

In New York City, new rules that were recently issued by the New York City Commission on Human Rights state that you could be fined up to $250,000 for each time that you offend a transgender individual.

According to the rules, “offenses” include such things as referring to a transgender individual by the wrong pronoun or not allowing a transgender individual to use the restroom of their choice.

More laws, rules and regulations like this are going to continue to be put into place, and it will eventually get to the point where those that wish to speak out about sexual morality are essentially banned from doing so.

Of course this is precisely what the Bible told us to expect during the last days just before the return of Jesus Christ. In my new book entitled The Rapture Verdict, I talk about the growing darkness in society and the coming judgment on the United States of America. But I also emphasize that God has a plan, and that a great move of God is coming even in the midst of all the darkness.

All throughout history, the world has tried to crush the church, but it has never worked.

And without a doubt, great persecution is coming, but we will never bend, we will never bow, and we will never deny the truth.
