Shi’ite Muslims worldwide mark Ashura by slicing their heads open, and those of their children
Sep 13, 2019
SHOW OF FAITH Ashura festival sees children left covered in blood as devout Muslims use knives to slice their heads open
Every year, thousands of Shia worshippers take part in the ceremonies, performed to mourn the death of Husayn ibn Ali, a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad.
We have seen this in Britain, Atlanta, Toronto, and elsewhere in the West. If someone wants to cut his head and stalk down the street with the blood streaming down, that’s his business, I suppose. It isn’t illegal. But others are likewise free to find it unnerving, disgusting, and possibly a danger to the public health. And it is certainly a sign of an increased assertiveness on the part of Shi’ite Muslims in the West, and a manifestation of a value system that differs radically from that held by most in Western countries.

Pastor seeks $100M to build global media platform to navigate End Times
August 5, 2019
A nondenominational pastor is asking God for $100 million to build a media platform to help guide the public through the End Times until the second coming of Jesus.
In an August 1 episode of his broadcast, called TruNews, Rick Wiles, who pastors Flowing Streams Church in Vero Beach, Florida, said that God had given him a vision of this global media platform.
"The vision He’s put in my heart, I need $100 million. It is a global vision to build a platform for the body of Christ to get us through to the End when Christ comes back. It’s going to take an enormous amount of money. I don’t know where it’s going to come from. I don’t know who’s going to finance it. But I know that God has unlimited resources, and He is my source and my faith is in Him," Wiles said.
The broadcaster, who is sometimes featured as a guest on The Jim Bakker Show, is known for saying odd things. Earlier this year he explained that the creators of plant-based alternatives to meat are part of a nefarious effort to destroy the planet and are attempting to change human DNA so that human beings will become a "race of soulless creatures" who cannot be born again.
BISHOP PLANS TO SPRAY CITY WITH HOLY WATER FROM HELICOPTER: 'WE HAVE TO GET RID OF THE DEVIL'
Catholic Bishop plans to spray holy water from a helicopter to exorcise the demons he says are plaguing his town.
Monsignor Rubén Darío Jaramillo Montoya, bishop of Buenaventura, Colombia, is borrowing a navy copter to deluge the city on July 14, the feast day for Buenaventura's patron saint. "We want to go around the whole of Buenaventura from the air and pour holy water onto it... to see if we exorcise all those demons that are destroying our port," Montoya told a local radio station. "So that God's blessing comes and gets rid of all the wickedness that is in our streets."
Colombia's busiest port, Buenaventura has been ravaged by paramilitary gangs, who extort, kidnap and terrorize locals. "Los Malos" as the guerrillas are known, meet resistance with horrific violence: Victims are dismembered while still alive. Their body parts often wash up on shore.
"In Buenaventura we have to get rid of the devil to see if we can return the tranquility that the city has lost with so many crimes, acts of corruption and so much evil and drug trafficking," Montoya, 52, told the local press. "It will be a great public demonstration for the entire community, where we will pour holy water to see if so many bad things end and the devil goes out of here."
Philadelphia temple bills itself as region's 'first weed church'
March 20, 2019
A temple in Philadelphia is billing itself as the region's first "weed church." The Philadelphia Temple of Hemp and Cannabis serves as a gift shop as well as a sanctuary and lounge for medical marijuana patients.
"...the reason we opened is that there was nobody providing a space for marijuana patients to come together and take their medicines socially.”
— Patrick Duff, the co-owner and high priest of the Philadelphia Temple of Hemp and Cannabis
It's unclear how the facility operates as a church. But it has a large painting of Ras Tafari, also known as Haile Selassie, the former emperor of Ethiopia revered by Rastafarians as the Messiah. It also has a large flag of Ethiopia with the iconic Rastafari lion of Judah.
Fake resurrection gets Pastor in hot trouble:
South African Funeral Directors to Sue False Prophet Over Faked Resurrection Stunt WATCH VIDEO:
A group of funeral directors in South Africa say they will sue a self-styled prophet who claims to have resurrected a dead man
A viral video of Pastor Alph Lukau shows him shouting “rise up” to a man lying down in a coffin who then jerks upright to cheers from worshippers. The funeral companies say they were manipulated into being involved.
The spectacle, seen outside Pastor Lukau’s church near Johannesburg, has been ridiculed and condemned by many.
‘Cussing Pastor’ defends twerking contest held at church, tells critics ‘f*** you’
FEBRUARY 27, 2019
Thaddeus Matthews, a controversial Memphis pastor better known as the “Cussing Pastor” for his profanity-laced messages which have attracted millions of viewers online, is defending his decision to host a sexually provocative twerking contest at his church, telling his critics “f*** you.”
“This message is for all you hypoChristians who live hypocritical and f***ed up lives when you have the nerve to judge someone else. I look at many of you who have criticized the young ladies who were dancing in my gymnasium in my church. I look on your pages, you got your a**, your titties out. You got all type of trash in your life but you want to be the one to judge – f*** you,” said Matthews, who leads the Naked Truth Liberation and Empowerment Ministries, in a video message posted on Instagram.
“You motherf***ers who are out here judging, there is nothing in the Bible about dancing but it is judging. Again, f*** you.”

‘Brewery church’ is the latest in craft of luring folks to church
February 12, 2019
Martin Luther, the famed 16th-century rebel monk and Protestant Reformer, is known to have had a penchant for a palatable pint of beer. He even once exclaimed, “Whoever drinks beer, he is quick to sleep; whoever sleeps long, does not sin; whoever does not sin, enters Heaven! Thus, let us drink beer!”
Perhaps it should come as no surprise then that the first known congregation founded expressly as a “brewery church” is a Lutheran outpost, part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and its Florida-Bahamas Synod.
Castle Church Brewing Community describes itself as “Orlando’s newest premier destination brewery” but also makes clear that while beer is its passion, “as a spiritual community, we exist for people first.”
Since it opened in October, the community of about 50 has been meeting each Sunday at 11:11 a.m. for worship in the brewery’s beer garden, using apps on their smartphones in lieu of hymnals. Afterward they enjoy some frothy fellowship.

If I’m a false prophet, then God and Jesus are fools – Angel Obinim
Founder and leader of the International Godsway Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim, has once again stirred controversy after appearing to blaspheme against Jesus Christ.
The self-acclaimed “Angel” has lashed out at those saying he is a fake pastor, insisting God and Jesus must be “fools” if that is indeed the case. Speaking to his congregation in one of his recorded sermons, Obinim boasted of his huge following in the country, adding that no pastor in the country commands the kind of large crowd he has.
According to him, most of the things he does are directed by the Holy Spirit and not of his own free will or say. “I always say that if I’m a fake pastor or I use juju to operate, then Jesus is a fool. Then that would mean Jesus is even more foolish than human beings. Because the number of people that come to me here in Ghana – look no prophet has more following than me!”
Earlier this year, Obinim came top of the social media trends due to his alleged magical stickers which he claimed have the powers to solve any problem. The ‘Obinim Sticker Challenge’ was thus kickstarted on Twitter, with many Ghanaians making mockery of the whole issue.
Last week, the pastor was once again in the news after he claimed that he visited heaven to berate Angel Gabriel for offending him. Read more:
Christians can now ignore the Ten Commandments- no longer apply???
Pastor Andy Stanley says Ten Commandments don't apply to Christians
JANUARY 08, 2019
Christians should quit erecting Ten Commandments displays and should instead consider making monuments dedicated to the Sermon on the Mount, popular pastor Andy Stanley said.
In a column published by Relevant Magazine, the North Point Community Church pastor argued that the Ten Commandments are “the old covenant” and no longer apply to believers.
"If we’re going to create a monument to stand as a testament to our faith, shouldn’t it at least be a monument of something that actually applies to us?" he posed. READ MORE:

Mormon women missionaries can now wear pants! But not to church
December 21, 2018
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced yesterday that women missionaries can wear pants for most of their service. They can teach in pants, ride their bicycles in pants (thank you, Jesus), and proselyte on street corners in pants, reversing decades of Mormon tradition. But they can’t attend church or the temple in pants. This is interesting, and reflects a bifurcation I have observed in Mormon culture in the United States.
Mormons today have grown fairly comfortable with the idea of women working. It has been many years since working mothers were last denounced from the pulpit; statistically, a majority of Mormon women work outside the home, at least part-time; and in 2017, female employees of Church headquarters in Salt Lake City were granted permission to wear pants to work.

Progressive Christianity Welcomes the Atheist Pastor
December 20, 2018
Certain beliefs ought to disqualify a person for certain jobs. For example, a vegetarian probably shouldn't be the lead chef at a steakhouse. A pacifist wouldn't make a good general. And an atheist shouldn't be a pastor. At least, that's what you would think.
A liberal denomination in the true north is giving that last bizarre scenario a go. The leadership of the United Church of Canada has settled a years-long controversy by voting to allow Reverend Gretta Vosper, a self-proclaimed atheist, to keep her post as lead minister at West Hill United Church in Toronto.
In her sermons and in her book "With or Without God," Vosper has made it clear she doesn't see the Bible as the authoritative word of God. She views "God" as not a personal Being, but as a metaphor of love, compassion, and beauty. Each Sunday, members of West Hill United Church replace prayer with "community sharing time," and then sing hymns that have been rewritten to accommodate secular sensibilities.

January 22: Bible expert addresses Super Blood Moon DOOM prophecy
December 4, 2018
THE end of the world could be just over a month away if biblical conspiracy theorists are correct about the Blood Moon prophecy. A doomsday preacher has now warned there is nothing to say the world will not end on January 22.
The Blood Moon prophecy claims the world’s fiery demise will be preceded by a menacing omen in the skies. Doom-mongers and online conspiracists believe the upcoming January 21 Super Blood Moon is such an omen. On the night of the Blood Moon, the glowing disc of the lunar orb will take on a deep red, almost blood-like, hue. Pastor Paul Begley, an evangelical preacher from Indiana, US, is one of the many doomsday prophets who believe the Blood Moon is a warning of the apocalypse.
And though pastor Begley refrained this week from confirming the world will indeed perish in hellfire on January 22, he suggested this is a possible outcome of the Blood Moon. Speaking to an online audience during one of his impassioned sermons, the firebrand preacher warned a cataclysm is headed towards the Earth.
He said: “Obviously these apocalyptic signs in the heavens are pointing to a catastrophic event on the horizon. We don’t know when. Just because you’re ogling to have a Super Blood Moon on January 20 and January 21 doesn’t mean on January 22 all hell’s going to break loose. And then again it doesn’t mean it won’t, ok? So there are these signs that are starting to be revealed.”
Lesbian Clergy proclaims Jesus "a Bigot"
Lesbian UMC bishop facing complaint for saying Jesus held ‘bigotries,’ is being made into ‘an idol’
December 4, 2018
A United Methodist Church bishop whose election was declared invalid by the denomination’s highest court last year due to her being in a same-sex relationship is now facing a complaint over a controversial message she gave in 2017 in which she claimed Jesus had bigotries and expressed concern about making “an idol” out of Him.
In a weekly message from August 2017, UMC Mountain Sky Bishop Karen Oliveto said many people “want to box Jesus in, carve Him in stone, create an idol out of Him.”
“If Jesus can change, if he can give up His bigotries and prejudices, if He can realize that He had made His life too small, and if, in this realization, He grew closer to others and closer to God, than so can we.”
In July 2016, Oliveto became the first openly gay bishop in the UMC when the Western Jurisdiction unanimously elected her bishop of the Mountain Sky Area, a regional body that includes congregations in Colorado, Montana, Utah, Wyoming and Idaho.
The Bible says: "Flee Sexual Immorality." Some Ministres say it is unreasonable to do so:
Progressive ministers say sexual chastity is 'unreasonable': 'Don't judge' people for random hookups
DECEMBER 02, 2018
Earlier this week HuffPost Life interviewed Brandan Robertson of Mission Gathering Christian Church in San Diego, California; Chalice Overy of Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina; and "Michael," a San Antonio man whose last name was not given and is currently working as a "clergy person" in a church. Michael considers himself "polyamorous."
Notable progressive ministers are now embracing polyamory, approving of dating apps like Grindr and Tinder, calling chastity "unhealthy," and declining to warn people about the consequences of hookup culture.
"I think the evangelical church world that I come from has taught some really unhealthy ideas about sex and sexuality, and I spend a lot of my time trying to deconstruct 'purity culture' in favor of a healthier, more holistic view of sexuality," said Robertson, who identifies as gay, when asked about premarital sex.
"I believe for some people, waiting for marriage before having sex can be a very healthy path. I also believe that for most people, sex before marriage is a healthy expression of the gift of sexuality and is not 'sinful' or morally wrong." In October, Robertson posted a video, which he subsequently deleted, calling polyamorous and open relationships “holy” and “beautiful” in a talk at his church in support of "queer theology."
Wolf in Sheep's Clothing:
Liberal Lutheran pastor to melt purity rings into vagina sculpture to 'take down' church teachings about sex
NOVEMBER 29, 2018
Liberal Lutheran pastor and author Nadia Bolz-Weber has encouraged women to send her their purity rings to be melted down and recast into a golden vagina in protest of evangelical purity culture.
“Beginning November 12th, until December 17th, you’ll have the opportunity to send in your purity rings to be melted down and recast into a golden vagina,” she explained on her website. “This sculpture will be unveiled at the 2019 Makers Conference.”
The controversial pastor first announced her art project at the 2018 Makers Conference, where she explained she wants to “take down” the “church's teachings around sex” and evangelical purity culture.
“This thing about women that the church has tried to hide and control and that is a canvas on which other people can write their own righteousness ― it’s actually ours,” Bolz-Weber told HuffPost. “This part of me is mine and I get to determine what is good for it and if it’s beautiful and how I use it in the world.”
She is scheduled to have a new book published next January titled Shameless: A Sexual Reformation, in which she argues that church teaching on sexuality has caused harm to many people. Earlier, she sparked controversy after she said there should be no shame in consuming pornography, especially if it is "ethically sourced."
Jesus - Pan-Sexual???
Gay Christian co-founder of 'Queer Theology' claims Jesus is polyamorous, Bible supports lifestyle
November 22, 2018
Brian G. Murphy, a gay Christian activist who is also co-founder of theology website Queer Theology, claimed Tuesday that Jesus is polyamorous and it is a biblical relationship model that Christians can pursue.
"I'm a Christian and I'm polyamorous. I'm also kind of a slut. The reclaimed empowering kind of a slut -like Jesus," Murphy declares in a new video while adding that Jesus' polyamory goes beyond the "personal relationship idea."
The Queer Theology co-founder who grew up evangelical Christian in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC, said he made the video to help other Christians come out as polyamorous to their church or help them accept that "marriage can be polyamorous."
"Jesus is polyamorous. We know this already if we don't think about it or put it in those terms. If you're one of those Christians who believe in having a personal relationship with Jesus, well Jesus is having personal relationships with billions of other people. He's kind of a relationship slut," Murphy argues.
"In Ephesians 5, Paul specifically uses the word 'marriage' to refer to Jesus' relationship with us. Repeatedly, Paul reminds us that Jesus gave himself for us. Us. The church, which Paul describes as the whole body of believers. In this marriage, Jesus isn't married to one person. He's married to the entire body of believers. Jesus is in a pan-sexual, polyamorous relationship with us. And so of course Christians can be polyamorous. It's a biblical model of relationships," he continued.
WHAT AND WHAT’S NOT SOUND DOCTRINE?
I’ve always affirmed that there is a difference between what many Christians call doctrine and mere denominational manner/codes of conduct. For instance, while trying to explain aspects of their church traditions, it’s not unusual to hear some believing folks talk in terms of “our church doctrines”.
When you ask them what those ‘doctrines’ are, they tell you how their church doesn’t allow the use of jewelry; how they disallow wearing of trousers by women; how that men and women must sit separately in their churches…
Those who restrict believing women from wearing trousers do so based on their erroneous perception/interpretation of the biblical truths. Such instructions as “don’t ear trousers; don’t do make make-up; don’t wear jewelry, etc. are nothing but rules, regulations or codes of conduct set down by certain denominations based on their individual sentiments/opinions on the godly conducts of believers, especially in their gatherings. Such opinions are however null and void because they are not hinged strictly on what the bible says about them.
The manner of life/outlook of believers must align solely with God’s word. From my interactions with believing folks who disapprove of wearing of trousers by ladies, I’ve come to observe that when asked why they are against it, they hardly have a substantial scriptural reference(s). Most times, they result to subtle-coercion and clever manipulation of particular scriptures to make it want to mean what it originally doesn’t mean.
Folks against trousers for women indulge in hypocrisy by cherry-picking from the host of laws within the same chapter 22. The same body of law in Deuteronomy 22 that says “the woman shall not wear that which pertains to the man and vice-versa” says “don’t wear clothes made of mingled materials (wool and linen) together – verse 11. Also, “don’t sow different seeds on the same plot of land” – verse 9… Wouldn’t it be hypocritical if one takes a liking only to verse 5 and ignore the rest?
Calling Evil good and good evil...
Why Can’t You Be a Christian Witch?
October 22, 2018
If you can be a Christian rapper who frequents strip clubs or a Christian model who poses in scanty lingerie, why can’t you take this one step farther? Why can’t you be a Christian witch?
In the words of “Christian witch” Rev. Valerie Love, “My job as a minister of the living God, as an ordained minister of spiritual consciousness is freedom, to set us free. … People are in religious bondage because religion told you what to think, what to do. I’m not here to tell you what to think. I’m here to support you in how to think.”
How liberating it is to be a Christian witch! What makes Love’s story even more bizarre is that she was born into a witch’s household — hence, “born a witch” — then was a Jehovah’s Witness from the ages of 4 to 30 before leaving the “cult.” So, she fashions herself a Bible-believer and has recently launched the Covenant of Christian Witches Mystery School with the ultimate goal being “self-realization.”
And it appears that Love is not the only “Christian witch.” That helps explain why, last November, Jennifer LeClaire published a “Prophetic Warning: ‘Christian’ Witches Rising Using the Name of Jesus.” Of course, this is absolutely crazy and totally unbiblical and completely heretical. This is calling light darkness and darkness light. And this is certainly a jump from being a Christian lingerie model or a strip-club frequenting Christian rapper. READ MORE:
The Cussing Pastor ???
Pastor Who Uses Cussing to Draw Millions Doesn't Give a Da*n What You Think
Sep 3, 2018
A controversial Memphis pastor who has drawn millions of views with his messages online by punctuating them with profane words, says he really doesn't "give a da*n" what traditional Christians think of his practice.
"I find no reason to try to justify that. I'm a fisher of men. I go to people on their level. And you have to get past the cussing to get the message. The cussing has drawn the attention of millions around the country. Apparently, it's drawn yours because you're calling me," Pastor Thaddeus Matthews, who leads the Naked Truth Liberation and Empowerment Ministries in Memphis, Tennessee, told The Christian Post Thursday.
While some might consider his use of expletives in his messages swearing, Matthews doesn't believe the way he uses expletives in his messages falls into that category.
"There is a difference in 'cussing' and 'cursing' as people say. The words that we use today like motherf****r, sh*t, damn, were not words that were used in biblical times.
"So I don't have an issue with the cussing. And the people that listen to me don't have an issue with the cussing, and I'm not trying to justify it to the traditional churchgoer," the preacher explained.
Matthews, who calls himself "the cussing pastor," launched his ministry about three years ago, building on a longtime career as a controversial broadcaster in Memphis.

Woman Claims Self-Styled Prophet Kofi Danso Said She Would Die If She Didn't Abort Their Love Child
August 30, 2018
Kofi Danso, a self-style Toronto-based prophet and leader of the multicampus Miracle for All Nations church, allegedly warned a congregant that God showed him she would die if she did not abort their child.
Danso who previously denied that he had an intimate relationship with his former lover and church member, Chris-Ann Bartley, has been proven through DNA testing to be 99.999996 percent the father of Bartley's now 6-months-old son, The Star reported.
About two weeks ago Ontario Superior Court Justice Fred Myers dismissed a request by Danso to extend a publication ban and sealing order seeking to conceal his identity in a paternity lawsuit because he might suffer damage to his reputation and finances.
"Ms. Bartley's evidence is that when she approached Mr. Danso to tell him that she was pregnant, he asked her to have an abortion. When she declined, she claims that he told her that 'the Lord showed him if I have the child I would die,'" Myers wrote.
The self-proclaimed prophet who is married to the Rev. JoAnne Danso, and has four daughters with her, says he was called by God to be an apostle and prophet "to raise champions and leaders in the 21st century church." His wife is pregnant with twins.

One who kills and is killed for Allah “is married to 72 virgins of Paradise”
AUG 27, 2018
In Arabic, shahid means “witness,” just as martyr means “witness” in Greek. A martyr is one who bears witness to the truth of his faith — in Christianity by dying for it, and in Islam by killing and dying for it, in accord with the Qur’an’s promise of Paradise to those who “kill and are killed” for Allah (9:111).
What this cleric is saying is not “extremist”; nor is he espousing the inventions of “Islamophobes,” as some have charged about the 72 virgins. What Nofal says here comes from a hadith of Tirmidhi: “The martyr has six unique traits: he is forgiven immediately; he sees his seat in Paradise and he is saved from the punishment of the grave; he is granted safety from the great terror [of the Day of Judgment]; a crown of honor is placed upon his head, a ruby of which is better than this life and all it contains; he is married to 72 maidens of Paradise; and he is allowed to intercede for 70 relatives.”
Sheikh Omar Nofal: The martyr gets six rewards. First, he is absolved with the first drop of his blood. The moment the martyr’s blood is shed, all his sins are absolved by Allah.
When he is martyred, he sees his seat in Paradise, and he is dressed in the clothes of faith. He is a unique and special person, different from the rest of the people, by the grace of Allah. In addition, he is married to 72 virgins of Paradise. This is means that he is granted, in Paradise, some of the things he wished for in life, but they are magnified to a degree that the human mind cannot comprehend. In addition, he is crowned with the crown of honor. The beads, or the links, in the crown of honor, are better than the whole world and all that is in it.
IRS Recognizes 'Pussy Church of Modern Witchcraft' for Lesbian Feminists as Church for Tax Purpose
Aug 8, 2018
The IRS has reportedly recognized the Pussy Church of Modern Witchcraft as a legitimate church. The Maryland-based group is dedicated exclusively to lesbian feminists.
"The IRS recognized it as a 501(c)(3) organization and went the extra step of recognizing PCMW as a church, the most enviable of all tax statuses exempt not only from income tax but also from the transparency that filing Form 990 creates," Reilly wrote.
According to information on the IRS' website, the church would have had to meet a combination of characteristics together with other facts and circumstances, to be considered a church for federal tax purposes. Some of these characteristics include: a distinct legal existence, recognized creed and form of worship, definite and distinct ecclesiastical government, formal code of doctrine and discipline and distinct religious history.
On their website, the Pussy Church of Modern Witchcraft glorifies biological womanhood and lesbianism.
"We come together to form a congregation of adherents to our female born, lesbian-feminist-based religious beliefs and traditions. We intend to serve our adherents through worship, service, and sistership with our congregants. We intend to accomplish the growth and continued strengthening of our congregation. The beneficiaries of our accomplishments are the adherents to our religious beliefs –
"Women are oppressed globally on the basis of our biological sex. Gender is a mechanism of women's oppression globally. At Pussy Church, we serve Women and Girls and our emotional and spiritual needs. We cannot serve these needs in the presence of men, as men as a class are the cause of the harm that women experience globally. All groups have the right to associate freely as they see fit. As a religious organization, Pussy Church is also protected under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution permitting free exercise of religion as well as the Maryland Declaration of Rights, which provides that all persons are equally entitled to

California Church to Build Brewery, Drink Beer During Services
Aug 2, 2018
A California church sold their church building and relocated in a new space where beer is served and plans are underway to build a brewery where church services can occur.
Food lounge owner Andrea Mollenauer, whose business is hosting the church thinks it is a great idea. "Why not serve beer when they're reading Bible verses? I thought it was genius," she said.
Formerly named Garfield Park Community Church, the progressive Disciples of Christ congregation's "About" section on their Facebook page and website explains that they "will embrace you regardless of your faith, personal life choices, race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, political preference, social status, or economic standing."
VanHall came to Santa Cruz to plant a church, according to his bio on the GPCC website, in hopes of creating "a place of safety for those who have justifiably left the church, due to bigotry and hate-filled theology. "I thought to myself, wouldn't it be great if a church could figure out a way to make a product where they split the profits with local community service organizations, we were like 'hey, we love beer, we love making beer, why not do a brewery?'

South Korean Pastor Arrested for Allegedly Subjecting 400 Congregants to Ritual Beatings to Appease God
August 2, 2018
A controversial South Korean megachurch pastor was reportedly arrested last week and charged with foreign exchange exploitation, assault and confinement, specifically over accusations that she stranded 400 followers in Fiji and subjected them to ritual beatings years ago.
The accusations, which also led to the arrest of three other church leaders, date back to 2014, when Shin's followers traveled to Fiji, based on her warnings that there would be a famine in Korea, according to The Guardian.
This isn't the first time Shin was involved in a controversy. In December 2014, she was hit by a $6 million lawsuit in New York, where a branch church is located. The pastor was accused in the lawsuit by a mentally ill man of having worsened his condition.
Seungick Chung, the man who filed the lawsuit, claimed that Shin deprived him of medication as she tried to cure him with prayers, the New York Daily News reported. He alleged that he was also bound with duct tape, which constricted blood flow in his right leg. His leg had to be amputated.

Pastor with a God Complex:
Woman Claims Pastor Booted Her from Church for Missing Sunday Services Without His Permission
June 26, 2018
Azoia Williams, a young Mississippi woman who says she attended Zion Chapel Church of God in Christ in Bolton "since birth," claims she was kicked off the church's membership roll by her former pastor this week for missing two Sundays without his permission.
"'A member who is absent from attending church services for two consecutive pastoral Sundays and fails to be present on the 2nd Sunday of the following month without being properly excused by the pastor will be terminated from the church membership roll,'" the letter said, quoting church policy.
Williams was then given a deadline of June 24 to appear before the pastor and the church's board of trustees to salvage her membership. Williams said that she was busy with her studies in college and was shocked by the way she was treated by the church administration.
"The matter is over and I will not be attending Zion Chapel anymore and honestly I'm happy because I've found a new church home. Since Zion chapel says this is an indication of my 'wishes' which it couldn't have been because not one soul from that church has called to ask 'Azoia how is school going? Or how is your family?' So how can you assume it is my wish to be terminated??? But I wish nothing negative on them. I will just remove the negative from my life and move on to the bright future I know God has for me!" Williams declared.

Prosperity Gospel Sweeping Africa, Pentecostals, Ignores Jesus: Anglican Conference Bishops
Jun 26, 2018
Prosperity gospel preaching is sweeping Africa and Pentecostal congregations, but it is not Christian and it ignores the words of Jesus, a prominent Ugandan bishop declared at the Global Anglican Future Conference in Jerusalem last week.
The massive gathering of conservative Anglicans, with nearly 2,000 delegates from 53 countries, featured a speech by Bishop Rt. Rev. Alfred Olwa, where he urged believers not to reject Jesus.
Olwa said that the prosperity gospel that is sweeping Africa "especially among Pentecostals" does not belong to the Christian faith, as reported by UGChristianNews.com.
"They ignore texts when Jesus talks about the poor and focus on those texts that proclaim wealth," he said of such preachers, without naming names.
Nigerian Archbishop Nicholas Okoh shared similar observations, but explained that those who leave Anglicanism for the prosperity gospel return later after they find out it does not deliver what it promises.

'Perfection': Woman Claims to See Jesus on Crab Shell after God Spoke to Her

A Florida woman says she's now filled with hope after an impression of Jesus resembling famous Dutch artist Rembrandt's 1648 "Head of Christ" painting appeared on the shell of a horseshoe crab after God spoke to her and promised "perfection."
The woman, Cathy Rader, told WKMG-TV that she had been going through a difficult time when a friend gave her the shell she found on Canaveral National Seashore in New Smyrna Beach. At that point, Rader said she noticed nothing special about the shell. A few days after she got the shell, Rader says she was doing her morning devotionals when God spoke to her.
As time went by, the crab shell increasingly got lighter and began to look like Rembrandt's "Head of Christ." I went past it and I noticed something and I looked back and it looked like the face of Jesus. I kind of chuckled to myself and said, 'That's funny, it kind of does,'" she said.
She now believes that God was trying to tell her something through the crab shell. "It's a sign. It's absolutely a sign!" Rader said.
Mock Jesus for riding a donkey??
A televangelist wants his followers to pay for a $54 million private jet. It’s his fourth plane.
May 29, 2018
If Jesus were to descend from heaven and physically set foot on 21st-century Earth, prosperity gospel televangelist Jesse Duplantis told his followers, the Redeemer would probably take a pass on riding on the back of a donkey: “He’d be on an airplane preaching the gospel all over the world.” And Duplantis thinks the Light of the World wouldn’t exactly settle for 30 inches of legroom or getting patted down by TSA.
Duplantis, saying he needs about $54 million to help him efficiently spread the gospel to as many people as possible, has asked the Lord — and hundreds of thousands of hopefully deep-pocketed followers across the world — for just such a plane.
He is the latest aircraft-seeking preacher to draw raised eyebrows and outright condemnation from critics who say asking for a multimillion-dollar luxury jet is not exactly what Jesus meant when he said “store up for yourself treasures in heaven.”
“We believe in God for a brand new Falcon 7X so we can go anywhere in the world, one stop,” he said.
“Now people say … can’t you go with this one?” he said, pointing to a picture of the plane he uses. “Yes, but I can’t go it one stop. And if I can do it one stop, I can fly it for a lot cheaper, because I have my own fuel farm. And that’s what’s been a blessing of the Lord.”

'Blasphemous, Sacrilegious': Critics Condemn Celebrities, Met Gala for Christian Fashion Theme
May 8, 2018
The 2018 Met Gala featured numerous celebrities dressed in fashions inspired by Roman Catholic imagery, leading some to believe that the event was sacrilegious. New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art held its annual gala Monday evening, with the theme being Catholic and Christian imagery.
In keeping with this imagery, singer Katy Perry dressed as an angel with large wings, actress Sarah Jessica Parker wore a Nativity scene on her head, and Rihanna wore a miter. Titled "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," the Costume Institute will feature 42 items of church fashions brought over from the Vatican through Met curator Andrew Bolton and other Catholic-inspired fashion.
While some considered the gala insulting to the Christian faith, the event did garner support from Cardinal Timothy Dolan of the Archdiocese of New York, who attended the festivities.
"In the Catholic imagination, truth, goodness and the beauty of God is reflected all over the place, even in fashion," Dolan said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Beyonce and the Bible???
San Francisco Church to Hold Beyoncé Mass; Pastor Insists 'We're Following in the Way of Jesus'
April 18, 2018
A San Francisco church will host a "Beyoncé Mass," featuring songs from the pop star that congregation members will be invited to sing along to, and one of its pastors is insisting that the event goes hand in hand with the teachings of Jesus Christ.
"I know there are people who will say using Beyoncé is just a cheap way of trying to get people in the church," the Rev. Jude Harmon, director of innovative ministries for Grace Cathedral, an Episcopal Church, told SFGate on Tuesday.
Grace Cathedral, the site of one of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous sermons in 1965, plans to hold the "Beyoncé Mass" on April 25.
The service will feature a sermon by the Rev. Yolanda Norton, assistant professor of the Old Testament at San Francisco Theological Seminary. Norton teaches a course there titled "Beyoncé and the Bible." READ MORE:
Crucified to understand Jesus' Pain:
Devout worshipers atone for their sins by nailing themselves to crosses wearing crowns of thorns, whipping themselves and slashing their backs with razors
Filipino Catholics reenacted the crucifixion of Jesus after many of them marched through the streets whipping themselves and lacerating their backs with razorblades. Gruesome footage from across the Southeast Asian country showed masked devotees performing the acts of self-inflicted pain to mark the Holy Week in a bloody religious ritual to atone for their sins. Though frowned upon by the Church, the gruesome re-enactments of Christ's final moments draw thousands of believers - and tourists - in a carnival-like atmosphere that is big business for locals..
2 Peter 2:1-3 : “There will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.”
Belief Jesus Is Only Way to Heaven Is 'Insanity,' Megachurch Pastor Says
Mar 12, 2018
Michael A. Walrond Jr., one of New York City's most influential pastors who leads the more than 10,000-member First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, is coming under fire online for telling his congregants that the belief that Jesus is the only way to Heaven is "insanity."
"We are an ever evolving community of visionaries, dreamers, and doers who have been called by God to live the lives we were created to live; commanded by God to love beyond the limits of our prejudices and commissioned by God to serve," the statement read.
The key is you believe in God. And whatever your path is to God I celebrate that. Personally I celebrate that," he said to a smattering of applause. "Again, we have enough in this world that divides us we need to find those things that bring us together. And if God cannot bring us closer together then something is wrong, not with God but in how we think we know God and understand God."

S.L. man blends the teachings of Christ and Buddha
Yi-Chen is not lecturing these days. Instead he spends much of his time working on a book he says he was encouraged to write in yet another revelation. "Every morning I wake up and it's like someone has left a message in my heart. I have to write it down and show it to the world. It's my mission now."
He will call the book — just a month or two from being finished, he says —"New Millennium Testament," but it's clear that he doesn't think of it as just another book. His new Web site is called www.bible3.org.
Yes, he says, LDS prophet Joseph Smith received a revelation, too. "He prepared the way for the eternal gospel, but he only started the prelude, not the full version," Yi-Chen says. "The main reason the Father sent me here is that Joseph Smith was one of the two witnesses in Revelation 11." But Joseph Smith only fulfilled that prophecy, he says. Now that other prophesies have been revealed, "the secret of revelation will be revealed in this book."
Yi-Chen will publish the book himself. As for distribution, he says he's not worried. "The word of God has its own power," he says. "I just wrote down the revelation I received, and God will take care of the rest." If not this generation, then the next, he says. He's not worried.
Strange brew in the gospel:
At mystery festival, Muslims and Christians chant ‘Zambo, Zambo’, wear wigs and body paint. But no one knows why
Marking the start of Lent for Orthodox Christians in the Lebanese city of Tripoli, Zambo is celebrated by Muslims too although its origins are unknown
19 February, 2018
Residents of the Lebanese city of Tripoli donned bright, curly wigs and dark body paint Sunday for Zambo, a mysterious festival on the eve of the start of the Orthodox Christian period of Lent. The origins of the annual celebration remain unclear, even to celebrants. It only seems to take place in a seaside suburb of Tripoli, a Muslim-majority city with an Orthodox minority.
But that has never dampened revellers, dozens of whom hopped and danced their way through Tripoli’s streets, glittery hats on their heads and sceptres in hand, a day before the beginning of the fast for eastern-rite Christians.
“Zambo, zambo, zambo!” they chanted. Muslims and Christians often take part in each other’s festivities here – but no one is quite sure where Zambo came from.
“Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'There!' do not believe it.”
Apollo Quiboloy, Megachurch Pastor Who Claims to Be Appointed Son of God, Detained With Piles of Cash
February 15, 2018
Apollo Quiboloy, a controversial megachurch pastor from the Philippines who boasts some 6 million tithing followers in that country and worldwide, was detained by federal agents in Honolulu, Hawaii, last Thursday after some $350,000 in cash and parts to assemble military-style rifles were discovered on his private jet.
Quiboloy, who leads the Kingdom of Jesus Christ Church, was among six people on his Cessna Citation Sovereign when Customs and Border Enforcement agents boarded it just before departure and found the cash and gun parts, Hawaii News Now reported. The cash was all neatly folded $100 bills stuffed inside socks in a suitcase.
Quiboloy, who is a former member of the United Pentecostal Church, founded the Restorationism church in 1985 after he said he received a calling from God. According to Asia Times, God came to his mother in the form of a cloud after he was born, and declared, "That's my Son."
"When the Father called me, He isolated me in two mountains. He let me go through some spiritual experiences that I never had before. He said, 'I'll give to you the spirits of these ministries: the mosaic, solomonic and the prophetic ministries.' And in those visions, I (and many others) saw myself standing, as three, big, spirit-like men entered my body. The interpretation was of the three ministries – the mosaic, the solomonic, and the prophetic ministry – entrusted to me by the Father," he notes on the church's website. He calls himself the appointed son of God.
Queer Christians + Purple Ashes = Repentance??
Queer Christians organize second Glitter Ash Wednesday
Campaign makes LGBTQ Christians and allies visible
February 8, 2018
For the second year, pro-LGBTQ Christians across the country will “come out” on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 14) as part of #GlitterAshWednesday, announced today by the Rev. Marian Edmonds-Allen, executive director of Parity, lead organizer of the initiative.
“Last year Glitter Ash Wednesday had an effect far beyond what we had dreamed, with more than 200 churches and communities in 29 states, the United Kingdom and Canada taking part,” said the Rev. Edmonds-Allen. “We were amazed by the number of people who relished the opportunity to come out as LGBTQ and Christian, and by the scores of churches that wanted to share their love for those who far too often are told that God doesn’t love them because of who they are or who they love.”
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a 40-day season of self-reflection and preparation for Easter. The imposition of ashes on the forehead, a traditional practice that “marks” believers with the sign of the cross, takes place in Christian churches and communities worldwide, as well as in parks, commuter rail stations and other public spaces. In addition to offering the traditional ashes, participants in #GlitterAshWednesday offer ashes mixed with purple glitter, combining a symbol of repentance with a message of solidarity.
The Rev. Elizabeth M. Edman, the Episcopal priest and author who conceived Glitter+Ash 2017, said, “Ashes are a bold, public statement that death and suffering are real. Glitter is a queer sign of hope and of our promise not to despair even in difficult times.” Parity has made available a range of resources, including church and street liturgies, theological talking points and a how-to on making glitter ashes, for faith communities interested in participating in #GlitterAshWednesday.

Megachurch Pastor William Curtis Draws Criticism Over $230K Bentley Bentayga
Feb 9, 2018
Leader of the 10,000-member Mount Ararat Baptist Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, William H. Curtis, has sparked a vigorous debate online after his $230,000 Bentley Bentayga, which costs nearly twice as much as the median home in the church's Larimer neighborhood, was photographed outside the church.
The photograph of the pastor's Bentayga, which Bentley boasts is the fastest SUV in the world with a top speed of 187 mph, was posted to Facebook Monday by Jarrell Taylor who criticized the pastor's opulent display.
"If ya pastor driving a Bentley truck ... he's sucking ur community dry with hope and tithes," Taylor wrote.
Matthew 7:21-23 : "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'
And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
Are you kidding me? How can someone get a penny with this type of fraud tactic.
Just shout at God -shout at people- do some fake crying, and bring in the money. This guy promises to give one of his favorite ties to someone who sows a 10,000 dollar seed.

At 'pot churches,' marijuana is the sacrament
Services at the Coachella Valley Church begin and end with the Lord’s Prayer.
In between, there is the sacrament.
“Breathe deep and blow harder,” intoned Pastor Grant Atwell after distributing marijuana joints to 20 worshipers on a recent Sunday. “Nail the insight down, whether you get it from marijuana or prayer. Consider what in your own life you are thankful for.”
A man wearing a “Jesus Loves You” baseball cap and toting a shofar, piped up. “Thank you, God, for the weed,” he called out. “I’m thankful for the spirit of cannabis,” a woman echoed from the back. “I am grateful to be alive,” said another young woman, adding that she had recently overdosed — on what, she did not say — for the third time.

Calif. Megachurch Accused of Practicing Occult in Use of 'Destiny Cards'
Dec 24, 2017
Bethel Church, a controversial megachurch in Redding, California, is now under fire in Christian circles for allegedly promoting New Age occultism in the use of "Destiny Cards," which critics have likened to tarot cards.
Leaders of the 9,000-member congregation have been accused of working with a Melbourne, Australia-based group known as Christ Alignment, a group that claims to have worked with many churches in that country to do readings.
Christ Alignment staff describe themselves as "trained spiritual consultants," and say on their website that they "draw from the same divine energy of the Christ spirit. We practice a form of supernatural healing that flows from the universal presence of the Christ. We draw from the same divine energy of the Christ spirit, as ancient followers did and operate only out of the third heaven realm to gain insight and revelation," they say.
Marsha West of the Christian Research Network argues that the Destiny Cards are just another name for tarot cards which Christ Alignment uses to "practice the prophetic."
Baptising Dead folks?
Mormon Church Baptizing Holocaust Victims, Lubavitcher Rebbe and Celebrities, Researcher Says
December 24, 2017
Mormons have posthumously baptized the late Lubavitcher rebbe, the grandparents of Carrie Fisher and Steven Spielberg, and hundreds of Holocaust victims, violating an agreement to halt the practice
The names cited by Radkey refer to Holocaust victims baptized from April 2012 and onward. In March 2012, the Mormon church, formally known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, sent a letter to its congregations reiterating a 1995 policy that members should only do posthumous baptisms on their own ancestors and forbidding baptisms of Jewish Holocaust victims and celebrities.
The practice of proxy baptisms is a controversial one. Mormons are instructed to perform baptisms on dead relatives who did not have the opportunity to convert to the church. However, in the 1990s it was discovered that Mormons had performed such rites on hundreds of thousands of Jews who died in the Holocaust. This angered Jewish groups, which said the practice disrespected the victims’ religious beliefs.
Islam: If men shave - you look too much like a woman:
Islamic preacher in Turkey says men without beards may cause ‘indecent thoughts’
An Islamic preacher in Turkey has drawn a backlash after suggesting that clean-shaven men sometimes "cannot be distinguished from women" and can cause "indecent thoughts."
Speaking on the private religious station Fatih Medreseleri (Madrasahs) TV on Dec. 16, preacher Murat Bayaral blasted beardless men and said there is no need to receive permission from wives for a man to shave his beards.
“Men should grow beards. One of the two body parts that separate men from women is the beard. For example, if you see a man with long hair from afar you may think he is a woman if he does not have a beard. Because nowadays women and men dress similarly. God forbid! You could be possessed by indecent thoughts,” he added.
Doctrine of a peaceful religion:
Muslim who gouged out his wife’s eye and then slaughtered her says it’s “normal” behavior in Middle East
December 2, 2017
The mandate to beat one’s wife is in the Qur’an:
“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” — Aisha (Sahih Muslim 2127)
A RADICALISED Muslim who removed his wife’s right eye before slaughtering her in front of their children told police it was “normal” behavior in the Middle East. The brutal killer, who cannot be named to protect the identities of his three children, is facing life behind bars after he pleaded guilty to the horrific killing in June last year. The Supreme Court heard on Friday how the Broad meadows man had set out on a “prolonged and vicious” knife attack on his wife at their family home.
He removed her right eye in what is believed to be inspired by the Islamist one-eyed antichrist Dajjal, and cut off two of her fingers while she was still alive. She bled to death after suffering deep lacerations across her face, neck, arms, legs, back, hips and genitalia. Her butchered body, wrapped in a doona with cling wrap and electrical tape, was found dumped in grassland in Dallas a month later.
In his police interview, when an officer said it was one of the worst cases he had come across, the man replied: “Grow a gut for it as in the Middle East it’s normal.”

ISIS may be in decline in Syria and Iraq but its barbarism continues elsewhere. In this video, Islamic State crucifies, amputates and decapitates an alleged spy as a child watches and then stands victoriously on the head of the executed prisoner.
Clarion Project occasionally publishes these videos to remind the world of the evil that is ISIS. We in no way condone these videos, rather we believe they serve as a wake-up call to Americans and other Westerners about the true threat of jihadism.

Televangelists: God Says We Need Another Private Jet!
There’s an insane phenomenon called “prosperity gospel” where preachers tell their audiences to send them tons of money so they can live lives of luxury/private jets. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“If you’ve ever wondered why some Christian preachers must hopscotch the globe in fancy private jets, it’s in part so that they don’t have to get on commercial planes with the “demon” common folk.
Preachers from the so-called “prosperity gospel” movement, Kenneth Copeland and Jesse Duplantis, tried to explain their controversial need for their followers to give up their hard-earned dollars so they can fly in luxury in an interview posted Wednesday. Copeland then pointed out he could “scratch my flying itch” by riding around in his single-engine, open-cockpit plane.
“But we’re in soul business here,” he said. “We got a dying world around us. We got a dying nation around us. And we can’t even get there on an airline.”

Benny Hinn's Nephew: Hinn Clan Like 'Royal Family' and 'Mafia,' Prosperity Teaching Is 'Twisted'
October 24, 2017
The nephew of Benny Hinn, who is a pastor in Southern California, is criticizing his uncle's prosperity theology and teaching, explaining how it cost him personally as a member of the Hinn family. The theology his uncle espouses is "twisted," he said.
In an HLN exclusive interview with Carol Costello, Costi Hinn described growing up in the Hinn family as a hybrid of being a "royal family" (lavish riches) and the "mafia" (strict enforcement of the mafia).
Hinn further explained that the luxurious way of life that he had was "living the dream," with flights on a G4 or G5 private gulfstream airliners, layovers in Monte Carlo, and stays in a fancy hotel suites that cost $25,000 per night.
Costello asked Hinn how they justified preaching the message of Jesus, who was not a wealthy man, with such a lavish lifestyle. The theology they used was "twisted," he replied.
"If you take the Bible and you take what Jesus taught and you take some of the promises of heaven and the riches of heaven and the wonderful glories of heaven and you make them a now thing, then you really have a model for your best life now." Read More:

Christianity Is Not the Only Way to Heaven, Prominent Presbyterian Pastor Says
October 6, 2017
Leader of the second largest congregation in the Presbyterian Church (USA), Rev. Shannon Johnson Kershner has declared that Christianity is not the only way to heaven. Kershner, 45, who leads the 5,500-member Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago, Illinois, expressed her belief in a podcast with the Chicago Sun-Times after she was asked the question "Is Christianity the only way to heaven?" "No," Kershner replied bluntly.
Before sharing her position of salvation, Kershner, who started at Fourth Presbyterian church in 2014, said she regularly doubted the existence of God at times. For instance, in the aftermath of the deadly Las Vegas massacre, she said, "God has some explaining to do."
"Doubt is healthy, doubt is not the opposite of faith, it's fear," she said.

Pastor Who Sexually Assaulted Six Women While 'Ridding Them of Evil Spirits' Gets 21 Years in Prison
October 4, 2017
John Wilson, 70, was found guilty of assaulting his victims during "deliverance" sessions at a Pentecostal church in Keighley, West Yorkshire over a 26-year period, from 1984 to 2010, the Metro reports. In total, he was charged with 14 counts of indecent assault, three of conspiracy to commit indecent assault and one of sexual assault following a six-week trial.
Wilson's "method of ridding the spirits" involved the inappropriate "touching of these women," the judge said.
"A screen of deceit concealed your motive," he continued. "None of these women were remotely cured. The three you abused frequently are likely to retain metaphorical scars for the rest of their lives. They are to be commended for exposing you as the charlatan you are and have been found to be."

End Times Tribulation Will Actually Begin on Oct. 15, Claims Christian Numerologist
Sep 25, 2017
The beginning of the End Times will actually occur on Oct. 15, according to a Christian numerologist who denies having ever said that the world would end on Sept. 23 of this year. David Meade, who received much attention for his claims on when the events of the Book of Revelation would begin to transpire, explained in a recent post on his website that the much heralded Sept. 23 was not supposed to be considered the end of the world.
"When the birth of Jupiter from Virgo occurs, we also see the fulfillment of Genesis 3:15 and Revelation 12:4 when great and fearful signs in the heavens are given. When the birth of Jupiter from Virgo occurs, we also see the fulfillment of Genesis 3:15 and Revelation 12:4 when great and fearful signs in the heavens are given. This birthing occurs according to the latest astronomical data available on October 15, 2017. This is when the King Planet – Jupiter, crosses the womb region of Virgo."
"If we use astronomical calculations and the Book of Revelation only, and no extra-Biblical source such as visions, this takes us to the most important date of this century or millennium – October 15 this year of 2017," continued Meade.

“Islam has no age barrier in marriage and Muslims have no apology for those who refuse to accept this” — Ishaq Akintola, professor of Islamic Eschatology and Director of Muslim Rights Concern, Nigeria
“There is no minimum marriage age for either men or women in Islamic law. The law in many countries permits girls to marry only from the age of 18. This is arbitrary legislation, not Islamic law.” — Dr. Abd Al-Hamid Al-‘Ubeidi, Iraqi expert on Islamic law
There is no minimum age for marriage and that girls can be married “even if they are in the cradle.” — Dr. Salih bin Fawzan, prominent cleric and member of Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council
“Islam does not forbid marriage of young children.” — Pakistan’s Council of Islamic Ideology
Few things are more abundantly attested in Islamic law than the permissibility of child marriage. Islamic tradition records that Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, was six when Muhammad wedded her and nine when he consummated the marriage:
“The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)” (Bukhari 7.62.88).
Pastor says: Hillary's defeat likened to the death of Jesus??
Hillary Clinton's Pastor Compares Her Defeat by Trump to Death of Christ, Says She Now Wants to Preach
After Hillary Clinton suffered a devastating loss in the 2016 presidential race to Donald Trump, her longtime pastor — who compared her loss to the death of Christ — says she now has her eyes set on a higher calling. She wants to be a preacher and he thinks she'll be great at it.
He revealed to CNN, however, that Clinton's loss last November was so devastating it may have been comparable to what the disciples experienced when Jesus died.
"I woke up that morning (on November 9) and it felt like maybe what the Apostles experienced on Good Friday. Their leader, master and savior was dead and gone and they didn't know what to do. And I thought of this phrase from the Rev. Tony Compolo: Good Friday was tough, but Sunday was coming," he said.
Jesus will land on the top of this Mormon Temple???
Contested sacred space USA: Conflict and cooperation in the heartland
This 2.5-acre site is sacred to a number of religious groups, all of which trace their origins to Joseph Smith Jr., the Mormon prophet. It is here, Smith declared in 1831, that Jesus will return — and soon — to rule his kingdom from a beautiful temple.
For now, there is no temple — construction never got past the laying of cornerstones. But the three largest Mormon denominations have presences in and around Temple Lot: The 15 million-member Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints runs a visitors center on one corner across the street; the Community of Christ, with 200,000 members, has its world headquarters and an auditorium on two other corners; and the Church of Christ (Temple Lot), which has just 5,000 members, has a low-slung sanctuary a few steps away.
Today, the three largest of these may have more theological differences than commonalities. The LDS church and the Church of Christ (Temple Lot) retain their belief in a literal and imminent return of Jesus to Independence, while the Community of Christ does not.
The LDS church has “temple ordinances” — sacraments and rites performed in temples for baptism of the dead, marriage and “sealing” families as “eternal.” Neither of the other two has these ordinances. And only Community of Christ ordains women and accepts noncelibate LGBT people as full members.

Rastafarian pot farm shootout sparks religious-use debate
August 6, 2017
Heidi and Charles Lepp, who run the Sugarleaf Rastafarian Church, stand in the backyard of their Sacramento, Calif., home on Aug. 2, 2017. The Lepps use cannabis as a sacrament in their religion. The shooting of two California deputies responding to a disturbance at the Rastafarian marijuana farm has drawn attention to religious use of the drug, sparking debate over whether churches should be protected from drug prosecutions.
Heidi Lepp launched her Sugarleaf Rastafarian Church in 2014 while Charles was serving eight years in federal prison after openly growing more than 20,000 pot plants in Lake County for what he considered religious purposes. She said she’s advised nearly 200 farms affiliated with her church not to adhere to state licensing rules.
“As a member of the church you aren’t bound by a lot of the rules other people are,” Charles Lepp said. “You’re not supposed to grow in Yuba County where this incident happened without a county-issued permit, (but) as a church you don’t need a permit.”
At this point, the Lepps have no plans to come into the legal fold. They insist that religious freedom laws apply to them because marijuana is the sacrament of their religion. Heidi Lepp shares a set of documents with every group that affiliates with her Sugarleaf Rastafarian Church, advising them not to consent to property searches or police questioning. She instructs them all to call her before dealing with law enforcement.

A Christian missionary who teaches dirt poor children in Nigeria sent me a link to a very disturbing story, telling me that this same story was being featured in every newspaper she saw today. It is a tale of unspeakable evil.
In the words of Brigadier General Sani Usman, "The Nigerian Army wishes to appeal to religious, traditional and community leaders, as well as all well-meaning Nigerians, especially in the North-East of our country, to help dissuade people from donating their daughters or wards to Boko Haram terrorists for indoctrination and suicide bombing missions."
"Boko Haram terrorists have so far used more than 145 girls in suicide bombing missions between January and July 2017" — although, the article notes, the figure could actually be higher.
Money Hungry Preachers will have something coming to them on Judgment Day:
Creflo Dollar Debuts New Pulpit Made Entirely Of Hundred Dollar Bills
Creflo Dollar reportedly broke in his new, looming pulpit made entirely out of hundred-dollar bills. The large, intimidating money pulpit was constructed out of all the crisp, freshly banded c-notes placed in the offering plate by Dollar’s church members over the past several weeks.
“But still, can we all just take a moment and admire the beautiful construction on this new pulpit made out of your hard-earned cash? Fantastic,” he continued. “If Jesus were on Earth today, I guarantee He would be preaching from a pulpit just like this one.”
The pulpit was crafted by a custom furniture design firm at a cost of approximately $30 million, in addition to the cost of the raw materials. In light of such a cost, Dollar reportedly asked his congregation during his message to consider a donation of $300 per month to help pay off the ornate, cash-hewn lectern.
Pastor letting his boy be a girl? No wonder we can't get anyone to church...
Pastor, Wife Allowed Son to Start Identifying as Girl at Age 2 Because He Liked 'All Things Girly
Jul 28, 2017
A New Jersey pastor and his wife who allowed their now 10-year-old son to start identifying as a girl at age 2, say they made the decision to let him live as he liked because he gravitated to "all things girly" as a child and was so unhappy with his life as a boy he tried to kill himself.
With his son Ben, now living as a girl named Rebekah, Pastor Christopher Bruesehoff of Holy Counselor Lutheran Church in Vernon, New Jersey, told Barcroft TV that he is worried about his transgender child's life as Rebekah gets older in the world.
"I've always worried about the reaction with Rebekah, both in the community and the church and the world. I'm very worried about how the world is going to treat her, because I see a lot of ugliness in the world on a regular basis," he said.
The Moonies are back...
About the Lord of the Second Advent
"In order to become the Lord at his Second Advent, I had to go to the spirit world and return with God’s seal of approval. By my going to the spirit world, a battle took place there for forty-three days. Everyone, from the bottom of hell to the top of heaven, said, “Rev. Moon is a heretic!” I had to deal with this, beginning from the lowest place, right through to the saints at the very end. I had to argue with them in God’s presence and go through a decisive battle that decided who was the Lord of righteousness. What was the issue at that time? It was concerning the stained lineage of all the people in the spirit world and whether they knew that they had to change that. What was the second consideration? It concerned transferring the rights of ownership of all material things. I stated that, “Those who had rights of ownership during their life on earth are traitors to the Kingdom of Heaven!” No matter how great the founders of the religions were, they had to face this judgment.
That is why, when I fought in the spirit world, I stood my ground in battle and challenged them confidently, asking, “Who’s the heretic?” Since great chaos would come to the spirit world after this, God had to make a decision as the Judge. But even He stood against me. God said, “Rev. Moon is a heretic, as you all say.” Why? Since Adam had betrayed God, in accordance with the laws of restoration through indemnity, the person representing perfected Adam had to face a situation of betrayal, even by God Himself. Only then could the walls that were raised in God’s heart be brought down. In this way, everyone was against me, and even God was standing on the other side, leaving me totally alone. Still, the spirit world could not be left as it was, in a whirlpool of chaos. God had to make the final decision. He proclaimed, “The transition of the lineage, transition of the rights of ownership and transition of the realm of heart that Rev. Moon speaks of, are true.” I then had to return here, to this world, after receiving God’s seal as a victorious champion."

Christian Ministers to Use 'Magic Mushrooms' for 'Religious Experience' for Johns Hopkins Study
Jul 9, 2017
Two dozen religious leaders from different faiths, including Catholic, Orthodox and Presbyterian priests as well as Rabbis and Buddhists, are now part of a Johns Hopkins study into the effects of psychedelic drugs on religious experience.
Scientists at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, will give those religious leaders two powerful doses of psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms. "People emerge after the [psychedelic] experience reflecting back and believing that experience to be deeply personally meaningful to them," Roland Griffiths, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at JHU School of Medicine, recently told Business Insider.
"Their instruction is to go within and collect experiences," Richards explained. "Generally people seem to be getting a deeper appreciation of their own religious heritage" after the use of the drug, he added. "In these transcendental states of consciousness, people seem to get to levels of consciousness that seem universal. So a good rabbi can encounter the Buddha within him."

Televangelist Todd Coontz Indicted on Tax Fraud, Claims $1.5M Condo, Ferraris Are Business Expenses
June 27, 2017
After North Carolina televangelist Todd Coontz was indicted on tax fraud charges last week, claiming that his $1.5 million condo and luxury cars were "business expenses," a group that monitors ecclesiastical fraud has warned that some preachers are "raping" the Christian community.
"It's time the IRS started looking into these people that are raping the Christian community," Trinity Foundation President Ole Anthony told The Christian Post in a phone interview on Monday.
They are cheating the people of knowing the mystery of God," he said. As The Charlotte Observer reported last week, Coontz was indicted on three counts of failure to pay taxes and four counts of aiding and assisting in the filing of false tax returns. The televangelist and author of several books on the topic of seed giving that he says can make people rich, claimed as business expenses his family's $1.5 million condo, along with a fleet of luxury cars, including three BMWs, two Ferraris, a Maserati and a Land Rover.
The federal criminal bill of indictment further states that Coontz provided no proof that his Regal 2500 boat, 400 charges at movie theaters, $228,000 in clothing purchases and $140,000 in meals and other entertainment were all business expenses. Read more at

Man Says He Was Sent by God to Save California Girl Stripped Naked, Bitten by Mother in Exorcism
June 19, 2017
A local resident from Humboldt County, California, said that he was "sent by God" to save an 11-year-old girl on Friday who was stripped naked and almost choked and bitten to death by her mother in an exorcism.
"The mother had stripped the child naked and was shoving handfuls of sand in the child's eyes and into the child's mouth. The mother stated she was trying to remove the Demons from the child. The mother, 45 year old Kimberly Felder of Ferndale, continued the assault by viciously striking, biting, and choking the child. This assault was being witnessed by a crowd of approximately 10 to 12 people," the report said.
"The things that lady was saying did not add up for it to be an exorcism or even a belief. Plain and simple, she was trying to kill that little girl. "No holy water, no crosses, no religious relics were present, and I feel in my heart God sent me there for a reason and it might have been that. Hopefully I passed in the Lord's eyes," Marciel stated.

Christian Lesbian Rock Star Vicky Beeching Given Award by Archbishop of Canterbury
Jun 13, 2017
Controversial Christian rock star Vicky Beeching, who in 2014 came out as a lesbian and argued that God loves her "just the way I am," has received an award by the head of the Anglican Communion for her contributions to worship music.
"Still amazed this happened last Friday. I never thought, after coming out as gay, that I would receive an award like this. Means so much," she tweeted on Monday, and shared a link of the official document praising her for her contributions to contemporary worship music.
"If 10,000 pastors declared they were gay tomorrow, it would not change the truth of the Bible one iota. If 10,000 worship leaders declared that God had made them gay, it would not change a single scriptural truth," wrote Michael Brown, host of the nationally syndicated talk radio show The Line of Fire, in an op-ed published in The Christian Post.
"As I have emphasized repeatedly, despite the increasing number of professing 'gay Christians' — by which I mean those who claim that you can follow Jesus and practice homosexuality at the same time — there are 'no new textual, archeological, sociological, anthropological, or philological discoveries [that] have been made in the last fifty years that would cause us to read any of these biblical texts differently.'"

Church Buzz Word: Transgender
Church of England to Vote on Offering 'Baptism' for Transgender People to Mark New Identity
May 30, 2017
The Church of England has reportedly decided to hold a vote on whether to begin offering baptisms for transgender individuals who have undergone a sex change and have a new identity.
Liberal voices within the Church have argued that vicars have had to carry out unofficial services to welcome and accommodate transgender Christians, and have called on the community to embrace those who identify as such. Conservatives, such as General Synod member Andrea Williams, director of Christian Concern, have strongly opposed the idea, however, stating that it goes against tradition.
"We are sensitive to people who feel uncomfortable with their sex, but Christian teaching is that God made us man and woman. The Church should help people to see the beauty of their God-given sex instead of confusing them."
The Rev. Chris Newlands, the vicar of Lancaster Priory, proposed the motion back in 2015, calling on the House of Bishops to "consider whether some nationally commended liturgical materials might be prepared to mark a person's gender transition. Newlands, who is in a civil union with another man, said it is an "absolute trauma" to get through sex change surgery and face what he described as transphobic bullying. Read more at:

Man Predicts World War 3 to Start Next Week, Does It Line Up With Other End-Time Prophecies?
May 05, 2017
In a few days, the world will witness the beginning of World War 3, according to a self-proclaimed "messenger of God," but how does his prediction line up with other end-time prophecies?
Horacio Villegas, a Roman Catholic, said the war will start on May 13, which coincides with the 100th anniversary of the apparition of the Lady of Fatima in Portugal. He also foretold when the war will end: October 13. Villegas said the revelation was given to him in a dream, wherein he saw "balls of fire," or missiles, falling from the sky and causing much devastation.
"I saw balls of fire falling from the sky and hitting the Earth," he told Daily Star. "I believe these were symbolic of the nuclear missiles that will fall on cities and people throughout the world." He also saw people frantically trying to escape the terror. Villegas said World War 3 will happen just as the Lady of Fatima said that if Russia will not be converted to the Catholic faith, then God will use it to bring great destruction on earth.

"Which man?" Bentley asked.
"You," said Peters, who continued speaking until he was escorted away.

Nicaragua Pastor Convicted of Homicide After Burning ‘Demon Possessed’ Woman to ‘Purify’ Her of Evil Spirits
May 05, 2017
An evangelical pastor from Nicaragua, along with four members of the congregation, was found guilty of homicide after he threw a woman in the fire and left her to burn for five hours to cast out the "demon" controlling her.
The victim was found lying naked on a riverbank near a ravine, her body tied up and badly burned. According to local media outlet La Prensa, she was brought to a hospital but died a few days later because of severe burns and infection. Trujillo Garcia, mother of two, was believed to be demon possessed because she reportedly attacked people with a machete. The pastor and other members of the congregation took her from her home on Feb. 15, supposedly for healing prayer, and kept her locked away until Feb. 21.
Her relatives revealed during the trial that she was bound and beaten and was not given food or water. They and other people were also forbidden from visiting her. The pastor also reportedly advised them to not feel love for her because she had an evil spirit.
"He told us not to feel any love for her, because that was just the devil, that she had to be burned until only her head was left," Roberto Trujillo, the victim's cousin, told the court, according to the Telegraph.

Adventist Pastor Comes Out as Bisexual, Resigns Over Church's Biblical Teachings on Homosexuality

A female pastor at a Seventh-day Adventist church in Arizona has come out as bisexual and resigned from her position, saying that she has "come to a point of complete disagreement with the Adventist Church on their teachings about LGBT people."
Johnston, who was raised in an Adventist household and describes herself as "very Adventist," explained that she is also bisexual and that she can't keep living her life without being honest about who she is and her beliefs.
"It really made it difficult for me to feel totally OK with God, that this is what [He] requires," she added. "How is this good? How is this Holy? How is this what you want for your children? It just didn't make sense to me. I just couldn't understand why so many people seemed OK with it ... and it just didn't seem to bother them very much." Read more at

Historic Lutheran Church in Denver Turned Into 'International Church of Cannabis' for Marijuana Lovers
A historic church building in Denver, CO has been turned into the International Church of Cannabis, a "church" for marijuana lovers that will open its doors on April 20.
KDVR reports that the 113-year-old structure, previously inhabited by a Lutheran congregation, will soon open its doors and welcome the first-ever congregation of "Elevationists," as it calls its members. Elevation Ministries says the church will "offer a home to adults everywhere who are looking to create the best version of themselves by way of the sacred plant."
States the website: "Our life stance is that an individual's spiritual journey, and search for meaning, is one of self-discovery that can be accelerated with ritual cannabis use. Elevationists claim no divine authority, nor authoritarian structure, therefore, those of all religious and cultural background are welcome to visit our chapel and take part in our celebrations."

Trey Pearson releases first music video since coming out as a gay Christian rock star
Artist Trey Pearson hugs a man in a final scene from the music video of his new single, “Silver Horizon.”
In May, the former frontman of Christian rock band Everyday Sunday came out as gay in a letter to fans. Now Pearson has channeled all of that into his first solo single, “Silver Horizon,” and its music video, which premiered earlier this week.
In it, a young gay man sings during a church service, then shares a kiss with his partner to applause from the congregation. The musician said the sequence reflects his feelings about seeing more churches become “open and affirming” to LGBT members, “and, in all seriousness, my desire to continue to see a change. I wanted to make a video that portrays the church when it’s at its best: unconditional love and joy and showing the love of Jesus.”

I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else. And I don't see that gay marriage damages anyone else," Carter told HuffPost Live in an interview on Tuesday.
Do interfaith advocates really believe in unity?
Rabbi Schloss, Texas Taqiyya, and A Shabbat That’s Fairly Shalom
APRIL 18, 2017
Rabbi Deborah Schloss invited local Muslims to attend an “interfaith Shabbat service” at her synagogue in Clear Lake, Texas. The Muslim guests, members of the Clear Lake Islamic Center, were present to share an Interfaith Shabbat Service. The local dialogue initiative focused on common religious themes.
Rabbi Schloss has allowed herself to be persuaded by that deceptive phrase about “Abrahamic faiths” to assume “commonalities” among those faiths that, for Muslims, simply do not exist. These two Abrahams are very different, and the appropriation of the figure of Abraham, turned into a Muslim who “hates” Jews and other Infidels, is nothing for Rabbi Schloss to celebrate.
“We’ve had relations for a long time,” Rabbi Schloss told the JHV. “I’m interested in deepening those relations. I feel compelled by all of the bigotry, ignorance and intolerance that we see in our nation and around the world today. There’s no better time for both of our communities to intellectually know and feel deeply in our hearts that we’re all children of the same G-d. And, we express our relationship to this G-d in diverse and beautiful ways.”
What is said about Jews and Christians in Saudi textbooks, texts that are used not just in Saudi Arabia, but sent to Islamic schools all around the world, including some in the United States? Here’s a tiny sample:
“The Hour will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews, and Muslims will kill all the Jews.”
“It’s allowed to demolish, burn or destroy the bastions of the Kuffar (infidels) — and all what constitutes their shield from Muslims if that was for the sake of victory for the Muslims and the defeat for the Kuffar.”
“The Apes are the people of the Sabbath, the Jews; and the Swine are the infidels of the communion of Jesus, the Christians.
Those quotations are from an 8th grade textbook.

Christian Man Gets 10 to 20 Years for Killing Worshiper Inside Church after Argument Over Seats

Mark T. Storms, a member of the Keystone Fellowship Church in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania, who fatally shot a troubled worshiper inside the church following a fight over seats last spring was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in state prison and two years probation Tuesday.
In tears, Braxton's father, Robert Jr., also told the judge that his son was not himself in church the day he was killed and had simply gone to "his Father's house" to seek comfort for whatever was bothering him.
"That day my son needed love, compassion, grace ... not the end of a 9mm gun," Braxton Jr. said. "My son was a human being, unarmed. Mark had no right to take my son's life."
Islam : Into the Abyss of Darkness:
Cannibalism, sexual perversions, animal abuse: The descent of Middle Eastern Islam into a primeval abyss
The Islamic world of the Middle East is sinking into the gloomy and forgotten past: the Bronze Age, the world of slavery, human sacrifice, pedophilia, sexual sacred traditions, beliefs in conspiracies and now the most terrible — ritual cannibalism
I began my journey into the jungle of the Muslim world in the Middle East — the perverted and cruel world, full of anomalies and pathologies, irrational anger and countless superstitions. It is a world where a woman, a child, a person with sexual and psychological aberrations are doomed to the fate of the miserable dog or donkey. It is a world of jinns, spirits, beliefs in conspiracies, legalized pedophilia and actual slavery, “codes of honor” and boundless fanaticism, clans structures, arrogant and suspicious attitude towards the outside world. It is a world that brings us back to the prehistory of mankind.
The current concept of “Jihad” is much closer to primitive human sacrifice. The purpose of the ancient cult of sacrifice was to appease the angry and bloodthirsty Deity. For the sacramental ceremony they selected predominantly children, juveniles and girls of own tribe as the embodiment of naivety and virginity. Sacrifice represented a horrifying theatrical performance. The sacral victims that voluntarily sacrificed themselves went to paradise where they could enjoy carnal pleasures. People from another tribe were slain like cattle.
The same mythologeme we can see in the current interpretation of “Jihad”. For the role of “martyrs” they choose children and adolescents that are too young to realize they are going to the slaughter. They believe that by killing themselves they make their way to heaven — to the embrace of 72 virgins. (What else can a man of Bronze Age dream about?). On the other side, slashing of people from another tribe chosen randomly, especially women and children, shall delight the cruel Deity and make his enemies tremble from horror.

ISIS Sex Slave Survivor: Terror Group Says Raping Underage Girls Is OK 'Under Islamic Law'
Human rights activist Nadia Murad, who was held captive by the Islamic State terror group and gang-raped and forced to watch the execution of several of her family members, says the radicals use Islamic law to justify their selling and rape of underage girls.
"Early morning on Aug. 3, 2014, they attacked us," Murad said in a CNN interview, describing the scene when she was kidnapped from her home in Sinjar, Kurdistan. Nearly 6,500 women and children from the Yazidi were abducted and about 5,000 people from the community were killed during that day. For eight months, they separated us from our mothers and our sisters and our brothers, and some of them were killed and others disappeared."
Murad, who has spoken before the United Nations and several human rights organizations about the horrors she endured, added that her mother and six of her brothers and stepbrothers were executed.
As an unmarried woman, she was taken as a sex slave and passed around to various IS militants, at one point even being gang-raped until she passed out. She eventually escaped and has since been speaking out against IS' practice of selling young girls as slaves. "They sold girls, girls that were underage, because ISIS considered that permissible under Islamic law," Murad revealed. Read more at:

Hindus outraged as CNN's new series shows Reza Aslan eating human brains with India's Aghori sect
American Hindu groups have criticized Aslan's episode of his docu-series claiming it was 'Hinduphobic'.
March 11, 2017
In the wake of recent alleged hate crimes against Hindus in America, the community is not taking too lightly to a recently-aired episode of CNN's documentary series Believers, which focused on an alleged Hindu cannibal sect. Author and presenter Reza Aslan sparked a controversy after the channel aired the first episode of the series that showed him meeting with the Aghori sect, a mystical Hindu sect known for its extreme rituals, and eating cooked human brains.
Members of the group persuade him to bathe in the Ganges River, the waters of which are considered sacred by the Hindus. One sadhu (ascetic) then smears his forehead with human ash and offers him alcohol to drink from a human skull. The host was then forced to eat a piece of charred meat, which the Aghori informed him, was cooked human brain.
"Want to know what a dead guy's brain tastes like? Charcoal," Aslan wrote on Facebook. "It was burnt to a crisp!"
The meeting with this particular group comes to a messy end when the ascetic loses his temper at Aslan and threatens to cut off his head if he keeps talking so much. The man then begins to eat his own excrement and throws some on the CNN crew as well.
Glitter on the foreheads of “queer Christians”?
‘Glitter Ash Wednesday’ sparkles for LGBT Christians and others
February 14, 2017
A New York-based advocacy group called Parity is asking Christians who favor LGBT equality — “queer positive Christians,” in their parlance — to show their support by wearing “glitter ash” on their foreheads to mark Ash Wednesday (March 1).
Ash Wednesday kicks off the six-week somber season called Lent that leads to Easter, and is usually marked in churches with the color purple. Traditionally, plain gray ashes, blessed by a minister or priest, are smeared on the foreheads of Christians to symbolize repentance.
“This is a way for queer Christians and queer-positive persons of faith to say ‘We are here,'” said Marian Edmonds-Allen, Parity’s executive director. “It is also a way for other people to be a witness to that and be in solidarity with them.”

Elder Nii Armah Hammond, a counselor and elder of the Church of Pentecost, New Achimota District in Accra, said that parents should consider allowing their teenagers to practice safe sex — but only in cases where youths have "uncontrollable libido."

In January 2016, the Rev. Cynthia Meyer told her United Methodist Church congregation she felt “called by God to be open and honest” about who she is: “a woman who loves and shares her life with another woman.”
Now, after being placed on involuntary leave of absence by the denomination, Meyer said she is able to do just that as interim pastor in the United Church of Christ. “To know that with all of those folks and in all settings I can be open and authentic and fully who I am is a really meaningful thing,” she said.
While she keeps her credentials and can work for a church or church agency in any role a lay staff person can hold, she cannot perform the duties of an elder in the United Methodist Church while on leave. Meyer spent time last fall “looking at options and discerning what might be my call.” She spoke at some United Methodist churches and was offered several jobs.

Pakistani woman dies in fake exorcism after being brutally tortured by ‘healers’
9 Feb, 2017
A woman in Pakistan has died during a fake exorcism, after her 'healers' tied her upside down to a tree, beat her with sticks, and fanned her with smoke and heat. The incident began after Soraiya Begum, a resident of Dera Ghazi Khan, in Punjab province, began talking to herself.
Her unusual behavior led her husband to believe she had been possessed by 'djinns,' evil spirits described in Muslim mythology. In an effort to fix the situation, the man contacted people who claimed to be 'pirs,' a word used to describe Muslim saints or holy men. The men said the woman was in need of an exorcism.
That ritual involved tying the woman to a tree and beating her with sticks before hanging her upside down and fanning her with smoke and heat, Geo TV reported. On seeing the brutality, Begum's husband tried to step in and stop the exorcism, although the pirs paid no attention to his pleas. Begum was pronounced dead upon arrival at a nearby hospital.

Some are speculating that the new U.S. president is "the last trump" that is mentioned in the Bible and that his geopolitical moves are heralding the end times. Montaigne noted that it is possible to look into such verses and explore what they might be saying about God's plans concerning Trump.
"I am not suggesting that Donald Trump absolutely *IS* the last trump – but since the LAST TRUMP is one of the most clear and final signs in end times prophecy, can we overlook the possibility that a presidential candidate named Trump is being used as a sign by God?" he posed.
Can you believe this one? Really!
Islamic Cleric: Muhammed Will Marry Virgin Mary in Heaven
26 Jan 2017
A leading Egyptian cleric irked his Christian compatriots when he said on television that the Islamic figure Muhammed would marry the Virgin Mary in heaven.
Dr Salem Abdel Galil, a theologian at Cairo’s prestigious Al Azhar academy and a former director-general of the Ministry of Religions, said on his television program that “Allah, hallowed be his name, chose Mary of all the women, alongside Asiya, Pharaoh’s wife, Aisha and Khadijea, Prophet Muhammed’s wives, and Fatima, the Prophet’s daughter. There are verses in the Quran that suggest that in heaven Muhammed will marry the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus peace be upon him, as well as Asiya, Pharaoh’s wife and Kultum, the sister of Moses peace be upon him.”
“The Quran said: ‘Allah will give [the Prophet] women preferable to his wives, Muslim, pious, pure women.'” One, he said, referred to Asiya and the other to Mary.
2 Timothy 3:6-9 :
"For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth... but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all"
Florida Pastor Forced to Flee Naked After Parishioner Finds Him in Bed with Wife
Jan 23, 2017
The Rev. O. Jermaine Simmons Sr., pastor of the popular Jacob Chapel Baptist Church in Tallahassee, Florida, who recently authored a book focused on issues of godly manhood, was sent running for his life last Tuesday after one of his parishioners found him in bed with his wife.
A report from the Tallahassee Police Department acquired by The Christian Post said Simmons, 37, who is married with one child according to his church's website, was caught in bed with Claynisha Stephens, 34, by the woman's husband, Benjamin Stephens III. Both Claynisha and Benjamin are his parishioners.
Last Tuesday, she said, Simmons came over to the home she shares with her husband and their children so they could "talk over starting a business, patents and trademarks, and providing less fortunate kids with clothes and shoes." During the meeting, she said they started having sex. While they were engaged, her 6-year-old son's school was trying to get in touch with her to pick him up. Since she did not answer, the school reached out to the boy's father.
Benjamin picked up their son and headed home only to discover his wife engaged with Simmons in their oldest daughter's bedroom. He reportedly screamed "I'm gonna kill him," and went to the couple's bedroom to retrieve a small handgun. On hearing the threat, the frightened pastor fled the couple's home naked without waiting to see what would happen. The enraged husband attempted to chase after the pastor but his wife stepped in front of him and begged him not to kill her lover in front of their son.
Rabbi Claims Jesus Christ Will Return in 2022, Bases His Prediction on Astronomy
Jan 18, 2017
A rabbi in Israel is predicting that Jesus Christ might return in 2022 when astronomers foresee two large stars colliding and creating a light visible from Earth.
Rabbi Yosef Berger of King David's Tomb in Mount Zion, Jerusalem, pointed to research by astronomers foreseeing that two stars in the Northern Cross, in the star system KIC 9832227, will collide in 2022, creating a blast so powerful that it will be visible to the naked eye from Earth.
Berger told Breaking Israel News last week that the 12th century Rabbi Moses ben Maimon, known by the acronym Rambam, charted the appearance of such light as aligning with the return of Christ. "The Rambam brings this verse about a star appearing as proof that the Messiah will come one day," he explained.
World renowned evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham has repeatedly warned against believing those who claim to know the date of Jesus' second coming, noting that human beings have no way of knowing when it will happen.
"Jesus warned us against making precise predictions about His return; only God knows exactly when Christ will come again to bring an end to the present world system," Graham says.
"Jesus did, however, say that the world would grow increasingly confused and dangerous before He returns. He declared, 'You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. ... Nation will rise against nation' (Matthew 24:6-7)."

Reading the Quran in the church that God does'nt have a Son...
Scotland: Anglican Cathedral Epiphany service features Qur’an reading denying Jesus is Son of God
JANUARY 11, 2017
The Qur’an reading at the cathedral was apparently part or all of this:
That last bit, “It is not for Allah to take a son,” is in direct contradiction to what the Anglican Church is supposed to believe: “And the angel said to her, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.” (Luke 1:35)
The idea that Jesus is the Son of God is a central, foundational tenet of Christianity, held by all Christian sects, Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant. What kind of madness has overtaken the Anglicans in Glasgow that they would allow what is ostensibly a central belief of their faith to be denied in the place that is supposed to be the site of the purest and most vibrant expression of that faith? Clearly their religion is not Christianity in any form, but Leftist multiculturalism.
What they will ultimately find, to their shock and horror, is that their Muslim partners in this multicultural endeavor have no intention of reciprocating their generosity and hospitality, but will ultimately only subjugate them under the hegemony of Islamic law. They’re already halfway there.

Church of Scientology Forces Women to Have Abortions, Leah Remini Claims
January 5, 2017
Actress Leah Remini has continued her mission to expose the Church of Scientology and the horrors that allegedly occur within its institutions, this time showcasing a former high-ranking employee who says the church leadership forced her to have an abortion against her will.
And indeed the control the COS exerts is so extensive that when Claire Headley became pregnant she was forced to obtain an abortion against her will in keeping with the "mission" of the Sea Organization to better the planet.
Catholic Priest under Investigation for Organizing Orgies, 'Pimping Out' Women from Church
Jan 3, 2017
A Roman Catholic priest from Italy is being investigated by police for organizing orgies in his rectory, and for pimping out 15 women, who were his lovers, at naturist and swingers' resorts in France.
The Independent reports that 48-year-old Father Andrea Contin of the northern city of Padua in Veneto is being accused of organizing the orgies on the San Lazzaro church premises, some of which he recorded in pornographic home videos. Police seized such material from Contin's possession after three female parishioners came forward with complaints.
The priest has not yet been arrested, but is being investigated by a prosecutor for sending some of the women who participated in the orgies to men on wife-swapping websites, along with taking others to the naturist and swinger resort in Cap d'Agde on the southern French coast.
Koran readings in "Christian" Churches?
Christian Clergy Welcomes Islam in Church, Then Bows to It
January 4, 2017
For the first time in more than 700 years, Islamic songs resonated in Florence's Cathedral, the Church Santa Maria del Fiore. Under the famous Dome of Brunelleschi, Islamic melodies accompanied Christian ones. The "interfaith initiative" was promoted a week after the barbaric massacre by Islamist terrorists in Paris at the magazine Charlie Hebdo, and included "Koran is Justice" and other such "hymns".
Last July, for the first time during a Mass in Italy, a verse of the Koran was recited from the altar.
A priest in the south of Italy enraged parishioners by dressing the Virgin Mary in a Muslim burqa for his church's Christmas Nativity scene. These interfaith initiatives are based on the gradual elimination of the Western-Christian heritage in favor of Islam.
The Catholic clergy is probably disoriented by Pope Francis himself; he was the first to allow the reading of Islamic prayers and Koran readings from the Vatican.
Church of England Bishop Harries suggested that Prince Charles's coronation service should be opened with a Koran reading. In the US, more than 50 churches, including the Washington National Cathedral, hold Koran readings. Is there any reading of the Christian liturgy in mosques?
Chess Players: Beware !
Popular Muslim TV preacher: “People who play chess are cursed”
JANUARY 3, 2017
Turkish televangelist Ahmet Mahmut Ünlü, popularly known as “Cübbeli” Ahmet Hoca, has raised eyebrows by claiming that playing chess is more sinful than gambling, daily Hürriyet reported on Jan. 2.
Ünlü said chess players were “cursed” and claimed that “most people who played chess are liars. Playing chess is worse than gambling and eating pork … People who play chess are more prone to lying than others. People who play chess may not say the shahada [declaration of Islamic belief] while they are dying,” he said.
“People who play chess are cursed … You should count your prayer beads instead…”

Pastor Refuses to Step Down After Sex Tapes with Multiple Women Are Made Public
Dec 29, 2016
Hosea Stubblefield, a 32-year-old recently divorced Baptist pastor from Houston, Texas, with a fetish for making sex tapes is refusing demands from members of his congregation to step down after he was outed for making sex tapes with multiple women, some allegedly from his church and during his failed marriage.
In an interview with Fox 26, Stubblefield, who became pastor of Salem Missionary Baptist Church last summer, admitted that he made between five and 10 sex tapes over a 10-year period and made his last one just two years ago. The woman who outed him online, however, disputes his claim. She gave the impression that she saw many more than just 10 videos during her time with him and saw one dated as recently as November 2015, about five months, she said, after his divorce with his wife was finalized.
"He gets up on Sundays and preach against EVERY sin he's committing in these videos. He is leading his congregation straight to Hell and they don't even know it. He's too arrogant to resign. I'm sure he will put on a show the next few Sundays, tears, repentance, and pure denial of his actions and the time-frame in which they occurred. I'm sure, as the pathological liar he is, he will find a way to spin these truths into him being the victim. Because he's a subconscious misogynistic narcissist, I can almost bet you he'll claim he's being blackmailed because someone wants to be with him."

Christmas moonshine kills 23 in Pakistan town
December 27, 2016
A toxic homemade Christmas liquor killed at least 23 people, mostly from Pakistan’s Christian minority community, and made dozens sick, police said on Tuesday. At least 45 people were treated for poisoning after drinking the moonshine in the town of Toba Tek Singh, Punjab province, about 195 miles south of Islamabad.
“The maker and supplier of the toxic liquor is also included among the dead,” senior police official Bilal Kamyana told Reuters. “The maker prepared liquor at home and sold it in polythene bags for 500 rupees (about $5) each.”

Pastor, Son Arrested for Beating Boy in Church Because He Wanted to 'Test God,' Police Say
December 22, 2016
A Minnesota pastor and his son allegedly beat a 12-year-old boy over the course of several days for rejecting his faith in a bid to "test God," and are now facing felony charges after the boy escaped the church and called for help.
A criminal complaint filed on Tuesday against Pastor Dong Wook Kim, 51, of Good News Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and his 19-year-old son, Joo Seong Kim, charges the father and son duo each with two counts of assault in the second and third degree, and one count of malicious punishment of a child. All the charges are felonies.
The Minneapolis Police Department received a call from a resident last Saturday who told police that she was shoveling snow at her home when she saw the boy running through the snow toward her. As he approached her yard he yelled "help me."He was dressed in only a pair of basketball shorts and a T-shirt in sub-zero temperature.
She told police that she took the limping boy into her home where he showed her injuries he received during four days of beatings in the basement of the Good News Church. Police reported that the boy had what appeared to be a black eye and a healing busted lip, bruising on both arms, whip marks, healing scabs on his back, bruising on his buttocks and thighs, "one of which was the approximate size of a football." He was taken to a local hospital for treatment where he told police that his 4-year-old sister had also suffered abuse at the hands of the pastor in the past.

Iran’s Supreme Leader: Jesus Prophet of Muslims Too
December 26, 2016
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei felicitated the birth anniversary of Jesus Christ (PBUH) in a message on Monday.
"Jesus is the prophet of us the Muslims too," Ayatollah Khamenei wrote on his Twitter account on Monday on the occasion of Christmas and the new Christian year.The Supreme Leader reiterated that there are many verses in the Holy Quran about Jesus Christ (PBUH).
"We recognize him as an arch-prophet," Ayatollah Khamenei added.
SAUDI IMAM ZAYD AL-BAHRI'S EXECUTION TIPS: AN EYE FOR AN EYE, AN EVIL EYE FOR AN EVIL EYE
"If a person who is known to be able to give the evil eye committed premeditated killing by giving someone the evil eye, he should be killed the same way. Someone who knows how to give the evil eye should be brought over and should be told to give him the evil eye. This points to the sanctity of the blood of a Muslim. The only exception is when a man kills in a method that is haram. If he makes the victim drink alcohol or take drugs until he dies, he is executed by the sword, not by using a method that is haram. But in all other cases, if he cuts off the victim's nose or ear, for example - the same is done to him."
We call it child molestation here in America!
Muhammad and Today’s Child Brides
Only Islam offers such high-level scriptural endorsement, prophetic example and legislative justification for the arranged marriages of young girls and much older men.
“There is a tsunami of young girls, some as young as nine, who are being taken overseas and being forced to become child brides … The imams in the Muslim community need to speak up more, and indeed any other religious leaders in communities who might pursue this practice.” Muslims Australia president Kaiser Trad claimed to be shocked by the reports, asserting that “one of the conditions for a marriage to be valid under Islamic teachings is consent. For anybody to force a young lady or a young man into a marriage against their will is wrong.” He was not quote as condemning child marriage per se.
A study of Muslim texts reveals that it was practised in the early Islamic period, even by the prophet Muhammad himself. His third wife, Aisha, was daughter of his best friend Abu Bakr. The marriage took place when she was six years old and was consummated when Aisha turned nine. Multiple texts in authentic hadiths (authoritative traditions) attest to these ages. Informants include Aisha herself, Hisham’s father, and Ursa. Aisha reported: “He had intercourse with me when I was nine years old.” She also noted: “The Messenger of Allah married me when I was six, and consummated the marriage with me when I was nine, and I used to play with dolls.”
Apparently Aisha had not yet reached puberty. Al-Asqalani’s celebrated commentary on al-Bukhari’s hadith makes this comment about Aisha’s childhood amusement: “The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for `Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty. (Fath-ul-Bari page 143, Vol.13) Another Hadith describes her sitting in the mosque with Muhammad as “a little girl (who has not reached the age of puberty).” (Sahih al-Bukhari 7:163)
Celestial Concubines — Muslim Men Die for Them, Muslim Women Envy Them
NOVEMBER 25, 2016
Last month, when the battle for Mosul began, Islamic State “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly promised four extra Houris (supernatural, celestial women designed for sexual purposes)—atop the other 72 promised by prophet Muhammad—to all jihadis who die (are “martyred”) fighting the infidel forces, according to Arabic media accounts.
Al-Baghdadi did this during an extra “fiery sermon” wherein he recounted 15 hadiths and three stories dealing with the Houris in the context of the original Muslim conquest of Mosul, circa. 637, at the hands of Muhammad’s companions (the sahahba). After promising his followers that “blood will run like rivers in the [forthcoming] battle,” al-
Baghdadi declared: “All, without exception, will enter paradise as martyrs. Moreover, you will enter paradise with four more Houris than other martyrs. For just as you stand by me now, so will they stand by you, or under you, or above you, so that you might forget what will happen to you by way of violence, death, and degradation in this war.”
Matthew 24:11 : “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.”
Tanzania: Woman Dies Naked At 'Prophet's Feet
November 21, 2016
Arusha-based woman, Lightness Daudi, died mysteriously at the feet of a self-proclaimed 'prophet of god,' in the populous Kwa-Mrombo area in the city. The late Lightness, according to her younger sister, Juliana, was taken to prophet Rajab for prayers, but while the spiritualist was busy administering the miracle healing, Lightness collapsed and died at the clairvoyant's feet.
The lady was clean shaven, featured horrid bruises on her arms and hands and looked like she was tortured before dying. The uncle of the deceased, Mr Ally Kivuyo, said: "My in-law followed me at night, informing me that Lightness had died while at hospital but when reports came that she died in the hands of the 'prophet,' I contacted the police who came to arrest the culprits."
The family said Lightness was not even sick, wondering how comes she ended up dying in the prophet house, naked.
DOOM PASTOR: I AM ALREADY ARRESTED IN CHRIST
November 21, 2016
A Limpopo pastor, who has caused outrage for using Doom insect killer to cure his congregants of illnesses, says he is not afraid of being arrested.
'Prophet' Lethebo Rabalago of the Mount Zion General Assembly Church says he’s been arrested in Christ and has no reason to be afraid of the police. He is the latest so called pastor to shock people by using unconventional healing methods after pictures of him spraying his followers with insecticide went viral on social media.
Rabalago has defended his actions: “No one gets hurt that’s the thing. We see testimonies day by day. I am already arrested in Christ so I don’t have to fear anything.”
Nigerian preacher TB Joshua deletes prophecy of Clinton win
9 November 2016
Mr. Joshua told his congregation on Sunday that he "saw" a woman winning. After Donald Trump convincingly won Tuesday's vote, visitors to the preacher's Facebook page noticed the prophecy had been removed.
The wealthy pastor is known as "the prophet" to his many followers. He is one of Nigeria's best-known and influential evangelists - and is popular across Africa, with many top politicians among his flock.
"Ten days ago I saw the president of America with a narrow win... What I frankly saw was a woman," it said.
Pope Francis to Followers: “Koran And Holy Bible Are The Same”
On Monday the Bishop Of Rome addressed Catholic followers regarding the dire importance of exhibiting religious tolerance. During his hour-long speech, a smiling Pope Francis was quoted telling the Vatican’s guests that the Koran, and the spiritual teachings contained therein, are just as valid as the Holy Bible.
“Jesus Christ, Jehovah, Allah. These are all names employed to describe an entity that is distinctly the same across the world. For centuries, blood has been needlessly shed because of the desire to segregate our faiths. This, however, should be the very concept which unites us as people, as nations, and as a world bound by faith. Together, we can bring about an unprecedented age of peace, all we need to achieve such a state is respect each other’s beliefs, for we are all children of God”.
United Church of Canada Minister Requests Defrocking Over Possible Firing of Atheist Clergywoman
Novemver 4, 2016
A retired clergywoman of the United Church of Canada has requested to be removed from the denomination's list of clergy over the Church's treatment of an openly atheist minister. The denomination is in the process of possibly removing Gretta Vosper of West Hill United Church from her position as a minister due to her being an avowed atheist.
The lead pastor of West Hill United Church of Toronto, Ontario, in 2001 Vosper told her congregation that she was religiously skeptical and in 2013 officially came out as an atheist. As a result, West Hill changed it order of worship, opting to remove the Lord's Prayer and most Bible reading from their services. Read more at:

Imam says 50-year-old man marrying 9-year-old girl is “legitimate” in Islam
Oct 31, 2016
According to two hadiths in Bukhari about 54-year-old Muhammad and 9-year-old Aisha:
“It is reported from Aisha that she said: The Prophet entered into marriage with me when I was a girl of six … and at the time [of joining his household] I was a girl of nine years of age. Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed [alone] for two years or so. He married Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consummated that marriage when she was nine years old.”
Debates and heated arguments are ongoing about what age Aisha was when Muhammad actually consummated his marriage with her, but it is plain from these hadith, the earliest and most reliable available sources, that it is mainstream belief in Islam to hold that Muhammad did marry Aisha when she was six and consummated the marriage when she was nine. Many Muslims invoke Muhammad’s example to justify raping children as a religious right, but Westerners are terrified to discuss these facts and their implications. To try to justify this or explain it away does no good to the female victims of incalculable human rights abuses that are justified under an Islamic banner.
Halloween Is Christians' Day, Not the Devil's, Says Desiring God Author
October 31, 2016
Is Halloween a pagan holiday? David Mathis, executive editor for desiringGod.org, says it's "not the devil's day, but ours," explaining why he believes so and sharing five truths about who we are in Christ, which, he suggests, should be our focus during "All Hallows' Eve."
Halloween, a contraction of All Hallows' Evening, may have been an "annual commemoration of the seemingly super-holy, the Roman 'saints,'" writes Mathis. "But under God's kind providence, a monk named Martin came to our rescue when he went trick-or-treating on Oct. 31, 1517, at the church door in Wittenberg. Halloween is a striking foil — for teaching our kids, and reminding ourselves — of who we are in Christ," he writes, and then shares five truths about who we are in Christ.
Kirk Cameron urged Christians to host Halloween parties to possibly spread the Word of God. "You should have the biggest party on your block, and you should have the reason for everyone to come to your house, and before anyone else's house, because yours is the most fun," he told The Christian Post.
Northwestern University prof: Christian fundamentalism more dangerous than Islamic terrorism
OCTOBER 29, 2016
Some people’s balloon never lands, and Catherine M. Wallace is one of them.
“If [anything Islamic] wanted to attack an American city, they had to hijack an airliner. If they want to blow up a concert, they need to put bombs on their own children and send young men in to kill themselves…that kind of radicalism [Christian fundamentalism] in control of nuclear codes was a much, much greater threat.”
Wallace apparently believes that George W. Bush, because he called the war on terror a “Crusade” once, doubtless without being aware of the historical implications of the term, and a few times spoke about it in terms of a divine calling, was equivalent to a worldwide army of Islamic jihadists who justify their actions and make recruits among peaceful Muslims by pointing to Islamic texts and teachings. This is as absurd as it is myopic. There have been nearly 30,000 jihad attacks worldwide since 9/11, all committed in the name of Islam and in accord with its teachings. Until we see people blowing themselves and others up while screaming “Jesus is Lord,” there is no actual equivalence to that on the Christian side.
For Catherine M. Wallace, faculty member at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine and author of the recently concluded book series Christian Humanism and the Moral Imagination, the Christian fundamentalist movement in the United States is more dangerous than Islamic terrorism. Wallace, a Christian herself, believes fundamentalist access to United States armaments is the number one threat to state security.
Retooled LDS website says people can be ‘Mormon and gay’ — but they need to stay celibate
October 25, 2016
1. It’s part of lds.org. “Relaunched?” you ask. “Don’t you mean ‘launched’?” No, relaunched is correct, because the Church actually has hosted such a website since 2012. It aimed to promote “greater sensitivity and better understanding” about lesbian and gay members.
2. You can be both “Mormon and gay.” The site has a significant name change: mormonandgay.lds.org rather than mormonsandgays.org. What a difference it makes to remove two small letters: Instead of pitting “Mormons and gays” against one another as if there were no overlap between those groups, the revamped site stakes a claim that these identities don’t have to be mutually exclusive. You can be Mormon and gay. Moreover, the site makes clear, your core identity isn’t either of those things: it is as a child of God. READ MORE:

At a former funeral home in a town inextricably linked to witchcraft, secular Jew Malcolm Jarry opens a new heaquarters for his Satanic Temple, a controversial movement with up to 50,000 members worldwide
October 26, 2016
Just in time for Halloween, a controversial Satanic temple has set up its international headquarters in Massachusetts’ beloved Salem. The temple houses an art gallery in honor of Baphomet, a “sabbatic goat” representing the universe. Behind the two-story building, an eight-foot tall statue of Baphomet sits in a plain shed, where visitors can pay to view it.
With up to 50,000 members in chapters around the world, TST has garnered colossal media attention in the last three years. Chief among Jarry’s causes are marriage equality and women’s reproductive freedom. Any issue related to the government using religion to restrict individual freedom is also likely to engage temple leaders, some of whom staged a 2014 “Black Mass” at Harvard University to push the envelope on religious freedom.
Jewish-born Anton LaVey in 1966. Known in his heyday as “the black pope,” LaVey seeded “grotto” churches around the country, and Hollywood figures including Sammy Davis Jr. joined the church. (Davis had converted to Judaism in 1961.)
As the “sigil” for his movement, LaVey adopted an inverted pentacle surrounded by the Hebrew letters for Leviathan, a sea monster featured in the Old Testament. From the center of the pentacle glares the half-human, half-animal Baphomet, both female and male, intending to symbolize the harmony of the universe.
After new mom's death, Jehovah's Witnesses take heat
October 24, 2016
Jehovah's Witnesses are defending their ban on blood transfusions after the death of a new mom in Quebec this month. Family members of Eloise Dupuis, 27, say she was influenced to decline a potentially lifesaving blood transfusion after a bedside visit by a "hospital liaison committee" of Jehovah's Witnesses, the CBC reports.
Dupuis, a practicing member of the church, died Oct. 12 after suffering a hemorrhage six days after giving birth by C-section. (Her baby is doing fine.) A Quebec coroner opened an inquest, but Health Minister Gaetan Barrette said Dupuis made the choice on her own.
"She knew, and she made it clear, that if something was to happen, because of her religion she didn't want any transfusion," he told the CBC. Read more at:

Church Bans Fat People from Worship Team Because They Would Interrupt Flow of Anointing
October 14, 2016
An Oregon church that instituted a ban on fat people as part of a slew of mandatory guidelines to be a part of the congregation's worship team has come under fire online for the discriminating rule it says is necessary, in part, for the anointing to flow through team members.
Officials at the controversial church identified as the New Creation Church, in Hillsboro, Oregon, initially had the "Worship Team Guidelines" posted on their website but removed it after it began receiving unwanted attention. A copy of the guidelines, however, was made available elsewhere and it details the ban on "excessive weight" among worship team members along with a number of other typical holiness requirements common to Pentecostal churches, like evidence of speaking in other tongues.
The document, which was first posted to a Facebook page called Stuff Christian Culture Likes, further adds: "If you do not meet the standards set forth in these guidelines, you will disqualify yourself as a part of the Worship Team." Members of the public who reviewed the document appeared appalled by the overt display of superficiality.
"Seriously, no fat people leading worship. And no one with a spine, either," Lorna Hartman wrote.
This sacred river is the 'gateway to heaven' (Video)
Oct 10, 2016
The Ganges River is the holiest river in the Hindu religion. It is also home to millions of dead bodies.
Locals believe the sacred river has healing powers and by bathing in the Ganges, a person's sins can be washed away. But it is also a place to die. Hindus believe that dying along the banks of the Ganges releases the soul from the cycle of rebirth. People often release deceased family members in the river.
Every single day, over 300 bodies are cremated and tossed into the banks of Ganges. Manikarnika Ghat, located in Varanasi, is the primary place to perform cremation ceremonies. The flames of Manikarnika Ghat have been burning for over thousands of years. As the body burns, last rituals are performed. A water-filled pot is thrown into the air. When it lands and breaks, it symbolizes the escape of the soul from the body.
Prophet Paul Israel Prays In Tongues: Who Benefits?
”Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church."
1 Corinthians 14:27-28:
“If anyone speaks in a tongue, let there be two or at the most three, each in turn, and let one interpret. But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in church, and let him speak to himself and to God.”
1 Corinthians 14:15-16:
“ What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding. Otherwise, if you bless with the spirit, how will he who occupies the place of the uninformed say "Amen" at your giving of thanks, since he does not understand what you say?”

The interviewer invokes the Islamic prohibition against suicide against this would-be jihad-martyrdom suicide bomber. However, the Qur’an says: “Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah , so they kill and are killed.” (9:111) Many Islamic scholars, including Qaradawi, have justified jihad-martyrdom suicide bombing by saying it is not suicide, but an attempt to kill and be killed for Allah.

Episcopal Church OKs Same-Sex Religious Weddings
Episcopalians approve gay marriage, allowing religious weddings for same-sex couples
July 1, 2015
Episcopalians voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to allow religious weddings for same-sex couples, solidifying the church's embrace of gay rights that began more than a decade ago with the pioneering election of the first openly gay bishop. The Rev. Bonnie Perry of Chicago, a lesbian married to a fellow Episcopal priest, hugged fellow supporters on Wednesday and said, "We're all included now."
"For the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in our congregations now know under the eyes of God and in every single state in this blessed country, they are welcome to receive all the sacraments," she said.

'7 Bible Quotes In Support Of Same Sex Relationships' Released By Arielle Scarcella And Matthew Vines
In "7 Bible Quotes In Support Of Same Sex Relationships," Scarcella is joined by openly gay and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) activist Matthew Vines for some expert perspective. Vines, who recently released his book God and the Gay Christian, is perhaps best known for the viral YouTube video "The Gay Debate: The Bible and Homosexuality."
"Sexual orientation is a pretty new concept," Vines notes in the above video. "Christians in the past tended to see same-sex behavior as a vice of excess like gluttony or drunkenness, not as a sexual orientation that can be expressed in loving, committed ways. So, Christians don't have to reject their faith's tradition in order to accept same-sex relationships.
