Burma Lurches Back Toward Ethnic and Religious Conflict

The Trump administration doesn’t appear to be paying attention, let alone seeking a solution, to the increasing conflict. For Burma much depends on the government ending its multi-front war on its own people. Unfortunately, the West has few good options concerning Burma.

Does Your Pastor Or Priest Have This Kind Of Courage?

While Archbishop Welby was sympathetic to the cultural confusion of Muslims living in the U.K., it is unusual to find a western Christian ecclesiastic who understands the role Islam and Sharia play in undermining Western Culture and the Enlightenment – and who is willing to stand-up publicly for his own Judeo-Christian culture, heritage and values.

Behar’s Poke at Pence a Reminder of ABC’s Disdain for Conservative Christians

Tony Perkins, CNS News

The whole episode was an embarrassment – not for Mike Pence, whose faith is shared by the majority of Americans, but for ABC, who may have done the administration a favor by reminding viewers of the deep disdain it has for conservative Christians. This is par for the intolerant course in a movement that continues to see Americans who want to live by their faith as backwater people.

Christian Parents In Ohio Under Assault By Transgender Lobby

The government, in the persons of Hamilton County Ohio Prosecutor Donald Clancy and Hamilton County Ohio’s Job and Family Services, are alleging that sending one’s child to Catholic school is child abuse. And, furthermore, that parents have no right to direct a troubled minor child to seek spiritual guidance or use a practitioner who bases their therapy on Christian principles.

The Dangerous Folly Of “Interfaith Dialogue” Between Christians And Muslims

The Grinchy Washington Post

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Liberals at the Washington Post didn't seem to have a merry Christmas this year. They were seriously unhappy about the fact that anyone would utter the "lie" about President Trump making it safe to say "merry Christmas" after eight years of the Obamas sending out White House cards wishing "happy holidays."

Showtime vs. Christianity

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The Golden Globe Awards nominations have been announced, and once again, the Hollywood judges really know how to find the worst junk to honor. Two nominations went to stay-classy Showtime's program called "SMILF," which stands for "Single Mother I'd Like to F—." This show might seem like unwatchable, blasphemous garbage to the average American, but that never stops the Hollywood left.

Trump Fulfills Promise To Jews And Christians: Moves US Embassy To Jerusalem

Can Christians Agree to Disagree on Same-Sex Marriage? Answer: No

John Stonestreet and G. Shane Morris, CNS News

Theology that accepts homosexuality is outside of Christian orthodoxy.The Church of today must stand firm on sex and marriage, just as the Church of yesterday stood firm on the deity of Christ at the Council of Nicaea. After all, He’s the same yesterday, today and forever.

GOP Senate Must Confirm Trump’s Conservative Nominees

The Democrats’ War To Drive Christians Out Of Government

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The Democrats’ successful strategy to derail the nomination of Dr. Mark Green and their vicious attacks on Russell Vought and Roger Severino should alert all Christians that the war for the soul of America is entering a new phase, and if we don’t stand together to defend these good men and women who are called to public office when they are attacked, then not only will Christians be driven from government, but so will our values.

Christians Are Disappearing from the Middle East

Eric Metaxas, CNS News

The phenomenon of disappearing Mideast Christians is one of the most massive and under-reported stories of our time. The Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary says that in 1910, 13.6 percent of the population of the Middle East was Christian. But after a century that saw the explosion of Christianity elsewhere in the world, by 2025, followers of Christ, if current trends hold, will constitute just over 3 percent of Middle Easterners.

Is Christ a Revolutionary?

Father Jerry Pokorsky, CNS News

Christ is indeed a “revolutionary.”  His revolution does not deny history or man’s dignity.  Nor is it violent or ideological.  It is personal.  His is a spiritual revolution that ultimately overthrows all sin, suffering, and death with sacrificial love. It is profitable as individuals and as a nation to take an honest interest in history and culture.  After all, Jesus did.

Coming Muslim Baby Boom Could Radically Change Our World

John Stonestreet, CNS News

It’s been said that demography is destiny. If true, and if current trends continue, then the future will look very Muslim indeed. According to the respected Pew Research Center, as reported by Christianity Today, between the years 2030 and 2035, for the first time in history, the total number of babies born to Christian mothers will be fewer than those born to Muslim mothers.

Is a Populist Christian Movement Needed to Renew the Faith?

Just as millions of American voters picked up copies of the Constitution and began to ask out of touch elite politicians “where does it say you can do that,” we Christians should pick up our Bibles and ask out of touch elite church leaders, “where does it say same-sex marriage and transgenderism are OK”, and “where does the Bible endorse the heresy that claims God and Allah are the same”?

Christians Must Contribute to Culture, Not Just Complain About It

Eric Metaxas, CNS News

I believe even more important for Christians than being on the front lines of the culture war is participating in the culture—and better yet, helping to create and nurture it. If the main contribution that Christians make to culture is complaining about it, we’re doing something wrong.

U.S. Should Favor Most Vulnerable Religious Refugees

Religions are not equal when it comes to evaluating refugees. There are non-sectarian reasons to favor members of minority faiths, especially in the Middle East where religious minorities have suffered disproportionately.

Changing Hearts and Minds to Combat Religious Persecution

U.S. officials have never felt comfortable confronting the crime of religious persecution. They have few answers to offer other than pressing unwilling governments to better protect politically unpopular minorities.

Trump’s Order Prioritizes Refugee Admissions for Persecuted Religious Minorities

Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News

The order does not single out or specify any religion. It does not call for either advantageous or disadvantageous treatment of individuals belonging to any particular religious sect or denomination when the seek U.S. visas or admission as refugees. But it does call for prioritizing refugee status for adherents of any religion that is a persecuted minority in their home country.
