Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities in the Middle East are currently being targeted by Islamic extremists for harassment, displacement and outright slaughter. One hundred and seventy members of the United States Congress are co-sponsoring legislation to declare the murderous actions of ISIS as “genocide” and a “war crime.” The Christian Action Network has begun a petition to support passage of this resolution by the Senate.
According to science, human beings come in two distinct flavors, male and female, with only the rarest exceptions. It doesn’t set people free to deny this scientific fact. It certainly isn’t good for civilization to try to force the issue on people … namely men and women trying to answer the call of nature in peace.
This week, sports-gear manufacturer Nike flatly rejected a famous spokesman’s diversity and and committed discrimination of the most blind and ignorant kind — the kind that doesn’t even know it’s being discriminatory.
A recent incident on the UK’s Thomson Airways provides yet another example of blame-the-victimism: the state of mind in which the fallout from terrorist attacks is blamed on everyone but terrorists.
The UK’s MailOnline reported Wednesday on a well-off British-born Muslim (who works for his millionaire father) who was asked to get off a flight from Manchester, UK to North Africa “because of his faith and his beard.”
He’s a hypocrite. No, this is not name-calling. It’s not hateful rhetoric. It’s just the plain truth.
Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) has introduced H. Res. 569, a foolish piece of legislation condemning “hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States.” The legislation already has 105 co-sponsors, all Democrats, with more supporters jumping in every day.
Prompted by recent statements by United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch, particularly in regard to the deadly Islamist shootings of Dec. 2, 2015 in San Bernardino, Calif., the Christian Action Network (christianaction.org) is calling for the attorney general’s immediate resignation.
It's when we commemorate how Americans forced non-white American people into camps, after irrational mass paranoia that drove white people into hysterical rage against people who didn't look like us.
Of course it was all caused by a militaristic country on the other side of the Pacific, which decided it needed to take out the U.S. Pacific Fleet if it wanted to continue growing its empire. Their early-morning air attack destroyed many naval vessels and an airfield, killed nearly 2,400 U.S. servicemen, and woke Americans up to a whole new kind of anger.
When we announced our recent petition drive to keep Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe from settling Syrian refugees in our home state (it’s still open; sign it here), the negative reactions on our Facebook page all had a similar tone: that we are “unchristian” for opposing a huge, hasty and very political importation of strangers into our midst from a region known for terrorism and extremist violence.
So how does one answer this common leftist charge?
Type the word “Muslim” into any news aggregator after the Nov. 13 Paris terrorist attacks and you’re going to see headlines that follow a predictable theme:
The true victims of Friday night’s massacre were not the Parisian westerners who were simply eating, enjoying a sporting event or listening to music before they were slaughtered. The true victims were … Muslims!
What we are witnessing this weekend in Paris is only the latest, bloodiest advance of Islam into Europe. And even though Europe's churches stand empty and its leaders clear the way for more invaders, this is nonetheless also an advance into the Christian-founded, Christianity-infused, peaceful and prosperous West.
The cowbird (in America) and the cuckoo (in Europe) both have a sneaky way of carrying on their species. Both birds are called brood parasites. The mother bird and her mate build no nest, but instead lay their eggs in the nest of some other bird species.
Very often, the host bird never quite gets what has happened. She raises a big cuckoo or cowbird baby that will even push her real chicks out of the nest.
