Members of traditional religions became moral outlaws in the United States once equal rights for sexual preference and gender choice were enshrined in regulation and law. To believe that homosexual relations are sinful, as does biblical religion, defines the believer as a bigot in the view of liberal opinion, which is backed by the federal regulatory apparatus and the regulators of most American states, as well as by most of the judicial system.As Mary Eberstadt reports, expressions of religious belief that society considered innocuous and normal until quite recently are now grounds for dismissal from jobs, denial of employment, and boycotts by the media. Devout Christians believe they must choose between their faith and job security, and they commonly conceal their faith in the workplace to avert discrimination. (Muslims are exempt because liberals consider them a threatened minority and make allowances for their misogyny and gay-bashing.)Actions or speech (quoting a Bible verse or leaving a religious symbol in plain view) elicit persecution. In some cases, evidence of past incorrect opinion is sufficient: The CEO of the software firm Mozilla, Brendan Eich, was hounded from his post in 2014 for a $1,000 contribution to a 2008 California referendum campaign against gay marriage, evidence of a position he shared at the time with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Puerto Rico Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla says the island won’t pay general-obligation debt coming due on Friday even with President Obama poised to sign a bill that enables the commonwealth to restructure its $70 billion debt load
Puerto Rico and its agencies owe $2 billion of principal and interest. It may mark the island’s biggest default yet and the first time it’s skipped payments on general-obligation bonds, which are given the first claim on the island’s funds. The federal bill, called Promesa, enables the commonwealth to restructure its debt through a control board that will also weigh in on its spending plans. The measure also shields Puerto Rico from creditor lawsuits seeking repayment
4000 years old is as close as we can get to connecting how old is “Allah” as deity, his relation to the great rebellion, sex, war … everything.Amid excavations at four different ancient sites in the Central Anatolian province of Yozgat in the Uşaklı Mound at the Büyük Taşlık village in Turkey there laid a cuneiform tablet unearthed after laying there for 4000 years (2,000 B.C.) The cuneiform tablet in the Sorgun district of Yozgat shows symbols of Ishtar, known as the Hittite goddess of love, war, fertility and sexuality. Ishtar or “the queen of harlots” goddess was found mentioned more clearly in this cuneiform than those on any other unearthed tablets.Linking Ishtar to other archaeologic relics, also written in the same cuneiform is the Epic of Atrahasis cuneiform dating just as far back in ancient history (1700-1800 B.C.), which reveal that this ancient deity known as Ishtar and the snake beast god known as Ishtaran another name for “Allah” who is literally mentioned in the epic by name and was a transvestite (dual male and female nature).
Even though the subject of Hell is not a pleasant topic to think about, street evangelist Ray Comfort says Christians must use it as part of their evangelism efforts so their pleas to skeptics have urgency.
“The accusation of the skeptic is that we use the threat of Hell to control the weak-minded. That may be true of some religions that hold their power because they control the masses, but the second the skeptic finds himself in Hell he will know that we only warned of it because we loved him,” Comfort wrote in a Facebook message on Thursday.
He asked: “Do we ever weep as we pray for the lost? Dry eyes and hard hearts go hand in hand. How can we profess to have the love of God in our hearts if we don’t plead with the unsaved to repent and turn to the Savior? And how can we do that with any passion if we don’t care?”
Comfort reflected that while it is pleasant to think about Heaven, the subject of Hell isn’t at all desirable.
“But we must force ourselves to think of it. Without such unpleasant thoughts we will never plead with any urgency,” he emphasized.
The New Zealand-born evangelist has spoken out about his thoughts on the afterlife on several occasions, and back in January shared with his followers that if eternity consisted of sitting on clouds playing harps, he would not be a Christian.
“God will replace this cursed and fallen creation with a new Heavens and a new Earth, and God’s will, will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. We not only escape Hell, but, by God’s grace, we get Heaven on Earth. What an unspeakably incredible future we have,” he wrote at the time.
“I know this, because we received a confidential tip from a parent, who couldn’t get anyone in New Brunswick to help. The media, the police, the politicians — everybody is petrified of being called ‘racist’ for even mentioning the disaster that has come from putting unassimilated Muslim migrant men right into our schools.” Just as in Rotherham, England: officials were so afraid of being accused of “racism” and “Islamophobia” that they let Muslim rape gangs destroy the lives of hundreds, and maybe over a thousand, non-Muslim girls. The fear of “racism” will be the death of the free West.
TRUTHBOMBS: You can’t make this stuff up!! Islam has killed more people over the centuries than any supposed killings by Christians (which most is a myth) Liberals are living in an anti-realistic state of mind!
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is at it again. Its President Richard Cohen testified before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee about the threat of radical-right terrorism. The world has been recently jolted by widespread islamic jihadi attacks, racking up victims galore and this chump is talking about the radical right.The Southern Poverty Law Center is also notorious for its defamation of those who resist jihad terror. As Robert Spencer has long indicated, Islamic supremacist and Leftist groups tend to equate resistance to jihad terror with “hate.”Such thinking is inane at best, dangerous at worst in providing cover to jihadists; of which the latter threatens the survival of Western civilization given the virulent spread of militant jihadism globally. In the face of overwhelming evidence of this global scourge from which no infidel – including children — is exempt, it is inexcusable for Cohen to attempt to detract from the necessity to combat jihad terrorism by pointing his crooked finger at the so-called “radical right”, which thankfully has become a fringe movement. The West cannot afford to ignore the mammoth battle of Islamic jihad because of political correctness and false accusations of hatred against Muslims.
TRUTHBOMBS: Why not! They already got rid of Freedom of Religion!
Democratic members of the Federal Election Commission, in a decision to be made public on Thursday, voted last month to punish Fox News over criteria changes for the network’s first Republican presidential primary debate – but were blocked by Republican commissioners.
It started out with hints of official, United States governmental oppression of Christianity in the wake of the Supreme Court’s marriage decision, such as “discrimination” complaints against people who refuse to celebrate homosexual behavior. Bakers, photographers and marriage-venue owners were penalized, and government officials publicly vilified their Christian faith and ordered them, in some case, […]
“He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.” – Isaiah 33:15-16 (KJV)
Many Christians today almost feel guilty when they try to remove sin from their lives as through it is wrong in some sense to separate from the other sinners in the world and have nothing in common with them.
This is flawed thinking. Consider the verse above from the prophet Isaiah, he makes it clear that if you are to survive the tribulations ahead, then separation from the sinners of the world is necessary.

TRUTHBOMBS: What I find interesting about this article is that the definition of love. Today people define that word very subjectively and so these NDE experiences usually become very euphoric is nature. They seem more like a morphine induced mind trip than death. I have read many more accounts that return unknown factual information by the deceased, which seem more plausible. The feelings of the decease should be irrelevant but the information they have must be scrutinized. -Stay Biblical my Friends

It doesn’t matter if they nearly died in an auto accident or a drug overdose, giving birth or attempting suicide. Among the thousands of people who chose to share their near-death experiences with the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, the report is often the same: They come back with a profound understanding of God’s love.Theologians sometimes talk about the omnibenevolence of God, the idea that God’s grace and charity is unlimited or infinite. For many who talk about encountering God, this term comes closest to the reality they describe. Here is a sampling of what some NDErs had to say about God’s love: “No human can ever love with the love I felt in that light. It is all-consuming, all-forgiving. Nothing matches it. It is like the day you looked into the eyes of your child for the first time magnified a million times. It’s indescribable.” “I felt the presence of pure love. This is very hard to describe. Everything made sense: God exists, God is love, we are love, and love creates all that is. … I was surrounded by pure love. First I was cold and in pain, but then I was warm and comforted.” “I know that love is all there is and that God loves all of His children deeply and equally. There are no stepchildren in the family of God. We are all divine.” “God loves us all infinitely.” “I felt God as an all-encompassing presence — complete, total, and unconditional love in its highest form! I was surrounded by God’s unconditional love, which was so much greater than human love. I was given the knowledge that God is real and loves me unconditionally — He exists and is real, and He is love.” “I came to realize that God is more loving and caring than I could ever imagine.” “The entire encounter was about God, the ultimate power of God, and God’s forgiveness. The message was, ‘Love is the greatest power in the universe.’ ”
