Turkey: Muslims hold Santa Claus at gunpoint to protest Christmas celebrations

TRUTH BOMBS: And there are some uneducated people in the world that think muslims can “coexist” with non-muslims. They are the reason why this country needs to put directions on a bottle of shampoo.

ARTICLE: “Our purpose is for people to go back to their roots. We are Muslim Turks and have been banner-bearers of Islam for a thousand years. We cannot see why there is such sensitivity for Christian traditions and not for our traditions like Hıdrellez, Nevruz and other religious and national holidays.”

One wonders if these Muslims were holding Santa at gunpoint for Islam while Guinean President Alpha Conde was in Ankara assuring the Turks that he knew that Islam was a religion of peace.

“Ultranationalist group hold man dressed as Santa Claus at gunpoint to protest Christmas celebrations,” Hürriyet Daily News, December 29, 2016:

A group of men from the youth group of the ultranationalist Alperen Hearts protested Christmas and New Year’s celebrations in Turkey by holding a man dressed as Santa Claus at gunpoint on Dec. 28 in the Nazilli district of the western province of Aydın….

The provincial head of the Alperen Hearths in Aydın, Burak Yaşar, said they were aiming to “bring people back to their roots.”

“Our purpose is for people to go back to their roots. We are Muslim Turks and have been banner-bearers of Islam for a thousand years. We cannot see why there is such sensitivity for Christian traditions and not for our traditions like Hıdrellez, Nevruz and other religious and national holidays. We organized this protest against Christmas celebrations, reminding people that we should be celebrating our own national holidays instead,” he said.

California Democrats legalize child prostitution | Washington Examiner

TRUTH BOMBS: I found this very difficult to believe as true until I found it on multiple news sites. So if a person is under 18, they cannot be arrested for prostitution.

ARTICLE: Beginning on Jan. 1, prostitution by minors will be legal in California. Yes, you read that right. SB 1322 bars law enforcement from arresting sex workers who are under the age of 18 for soliciting or engaging in prostitution, or loitering with the intent to do so. So teenage girls (and boys) in California will soon be free to have sex in exchange for money without fear of arrest or prosecution. This terribly destructive legislation was written and passed by the progressive Democrats who control California’s state government with a two-thirds supermajority. To their credit, they are sincere in their belief that decriminalizing underage prostitution is good public policy that will help victims of sex trafficking. Unfortunately, the reality is that the legalization of underage prostitution suffers from the fatal defect endemic to progressive-left policymaking: it ignores experience, common sense and most of all human nature — especially its darker side.

Poll Reveals 5 Key Findings on Religion in the U.S.

A recent Gallup poll on religion, and particularly Christianity, in America has revealed five specific noteworthy trends.

Gallup.com reports on the findings of the poll, which overall revealed that, at least for the short-term, Americans are becoming less religious.

1. The poll found that while America remains a predominantly Christian nation overall, it is becoming less so than in years past.

While seventy-four percent of Americans identify as Christians, this is down six points from 2008. Also, those who who do not identify with any religion–so-called “nones–have increased by six points since 2008.

Back in the 1940s and ‘50s, when Gallup began collecting data about religious affiliation, nine in 10 Americans identified as Christians, with the only other significant group identifying as Jewish.

2. Although Christianity is still the predominant religion in America, formal religious identification is decreasing.

About one in five Americans say they do not have a formal religious identity and are not members of a church, synagogue, or mosque. In the 1940s and ‘50s, only two to three percent of Americans said they did not have a formal religious identity.

3. Over half of Americans still say that religion plays an important role in their lives.

Fifty-three percent said that religion is a “very important” part of their lives. While this is still a majority, the number was as high as 70 percent in 1965. The number has fluctuated through the years, however, and the current numbers are about equal to those of the years 1978 and 1987.

4. A majority of Americans believe that religion is losing influence in society.

Seventy-two percent believe that religion is declining in American life. This number has gone consistently up over the years, except for specific periods of time such as in 1957, as well as shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

5. Religion tends to correlate to political affiliation.

On the whole, Republicans tend to identify as religious more often than Democrats. Just over half of Republicans are “highly religious” and regularly attend religious services, while only a third of Democrats identify as the same.

College calls Christian speech ‘disorderly conduct,’ gets sued

A Christian student prevented from sharing his faith due to restrictive and subjectively applied “free speech” rules at Georgia Gwinnett College has filed a 76-page lawsuit against 11 named college officials. “The First Amendment guarantees every student’s freedom of speech and religion. Every public school – and especially a state college that is supposed to […]

Church facing $12,000 fine for letting homeless people sleep on property | WSB-TV

TRUTH BOMBS: But what happened to the separation of Church and State? Shouldn’t the State be minding their own business?

ARTICLE: DUNDALK, Md. – Patapsco United Methodist Church is in Dundalk, Maryland, not far from Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay. Sometimes, at night, homeless people with nowhere else to go will sleep on church grounds, taking advantage of the promise of safety that a church often represents.

But in the future, those people may have to find another place to sleep, because the church may be fined out of existence by local government.

According to Yahoo News, Rev. Katie Grover found a $12,000 citation attached to a church door  when she went to the church one morning recently.

The citation said that the church had violated a county regulation that prohibits “non-permitted rooming and boarding” and that the church failed to “cease exterior use of property as housing units.” An inspector’s comments noted that “People (were) still living in (the) rear of (the) property under tarped area.”

“We feel, we here as a church, that it’s scriptural mandate, that it’s an imperative to care for the least, the last, the lost, the poor, the hungry,” Grover told WMAR.

Failure to evict the homeless people from the area would require the church to pay the $12,000 county fine, straining the small congregation’s budget, Yahoo reported. The fine grows by $200 each day the church doesn’t comply.

“I’m not trying to be adversarial with anyone. We’re just trying to do what a church is called to do, and that’s to love people,” Grover told Yahoo. “In Scripture, it talks about feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the sick. Whatever we’ve done to the least of these, it’s as if we’ve done it to Christ himself.”

Authorities were made aware of the homeless people using the area to sleep after a neighbor who owns a fruit stand business next door complained to the county. The neighbor, Chester Bartko, is unhappy because he said some of the homeless people have urinated on his apple tree, causing it to stop producing the fruit. Bartko said his business has been affected in other ways, too.

“We have a greenhouse, and we sell flowers and shrubbery, and the homeless started camping right next to our retail sales area,” Bartko told WMAR.

Representatives of Patapsco were scheduled to appear in court Wednesday to fight the county’s order.

If the congregation puts up a “no trespassing” sign, it can escape the fine.

“Who, then, is welcome to the church?” Grover said. “Mary and Joseph gave birth to the Messiah in a stable because there wasn’t any room for them anywhere else. Here we are in this Christmas season where we celebrate the coming of Christ, and we’re battling whether a person can sleep outside on a bench.”

Switzerland: Muslim attacks Christians on way to Christmas mass, one dead, three injured

TRUTH BOMBS: Peace on earth good will toward men….unless you are a muslim. Then you are commanded by islam to kill the infidel.

ARTICLE: “Switzerland: Anti-Christians attack in Longeborgne: 1 dead and 3 injured,” translated from “Suisse : Attaque anti-chrétiens à Longeborgne : 1 mort et 3 blessés,” by Christian Larnet, Dreuz.info, December 25, 2016 (thanks to Benedict): Christians were attacked with knives — still the weapon of Islam — as they were going to Mass this Sunday morning at Our Lady of Longeborgne in Bramois. Update Monday 26 December: Police investigators discovered the body of a fourth victim, a deceased man, in bed in La Borgne, belonging to the same family as the other three victims, at 3:30PM. Police now suggest that the culprit may have fled. On social networks, eyewitnesses spoke of a knife attack against three faithful, one of whom was seriously wounded, on their way to the Hermitage of Longeborgne. One of them succeeded in crossing the roadblock constructed by the attacker, and arrived in Longeborgne with his face in blood. He was taken to the hospital as soon as the police arrived. According to the priest, his condition was not worrying, but another victim was reportedly found by the police lying on the ground and seriously wounded. “There was no mass, for the faithful were stopped by a person who assaulted them. It was probably a knife,” said Father Francis, rector of the Hermitage. One of the wounded was able to reach the holy place and was treated on the spot, before being taken in by rescue services. The three people stabbed were two women and one man. The latter was seriously injured…. The Prosecutor’s office has not formally released the facts of the case or the identity of the aggressor, but unofficially, the trail of a jihad terror act would be dismissed without explanation.

Hamas-linked CAIR’s Hooper: US Muslims suffering from “mental health issues” that cause them to fake hate crimes

TRUTH BOMBS: YEAH Well Muslims are allow by there immoral religion to lie to the unbelievers. What does that say about islam? In Christianity, it is wrong to lie because God is not a liar so in islam, Allah is a liar?

ARTICLE: Here’s a new twist: the establishment propaganda media’s narrative that Muslims are always victims is breaking down with the continuing revelations that Muslims have faked “anti-Muslim hate crimes,” and so now ABC doubles down: Muslims are victims, you see, because they fake anti-Muslim hate crimes. They’re driven crazy by “Islamophobia,” doncha know.“These false reports unfortunately give ammunition to the industry of Islamophobes who promote the demonization and dehumanization of Islamic Muslims,” says Hamas-linked CAIR’s Ibrahim “Honest Ibe” Hooper. “Islamic Muslims,” Ibe? Are there non-Islamic Muslims now? Anyway, note how deftly Hooper plays the victim card even in the process of being exposed for falsely playing the victim card: the fake hate crimes are not a challenge to the veracity or trustworthiness of Muslims; rather, they’re tools in the hands of the alleged “Islamophobes” who supposedly “promote the demonization and dehumanization of Islamic Muslims” — as if its demonizing and dehumanizing someone to ask him to be honest.Hooper added that the Muslim community “is under great psychological stress and tension right now, and that that in itself can cause mental health issues that lead to these types of incidents.”Why is the Muslim community, in Hooper’s view, “under great psychological stress and tension”? Because of all the hate crimes against Muslims, you see, which drive Muslims so crazy that they…fake hate crimes against Muslims.How did Avianne Tan of ABC News keep from laughing right in Hooper’s face? She either kept a straight face because she is a fully indoctrinated true believer in this nonsense, or because she knew her establishment propaganda media bosses would look askance at her thinking critically in the face of Hooper’s ridiculous statements.
