Kevin Swanson Warns That Australia Will Face God’s Judgment For Legalizing Marriage Equality

Comments Off on Kevin Swanson Warns That Australia Will Face God’s Judgment For Legalizing Marriage Equality

In the wake of the news that Australia had voted overwhelmingly to legalize marriage equality, extremist anti-LGBTQ pastor Kevin Swanson dedicated his radio program today to warning the nation that it will soon feel the unrelenting wrath of God.

“God’s judgment will come, friends,” Swanson said. “God will hold them to account.”

Paraphrasing the words of Jesus, Swanson declared, “I say to you, Canada, I say to you, Australia, I say to you, United States, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. And you, Capernaum, which was exalted to heaven, will be brought down to hell for if the mighty works which were done in you, Australia, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. But I say to you, Australia, that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom on the day of judgment than for you!”

Stefan Molyneux Believes ‘Stranger Things’ Is Secretly About Mass Immigration

Comments Off on Stefan Molyneux Believes ‘Stranger Things’ Is Secretly About Mass Immigration

(Note: This post contains mild spoilers for “Stranger Things” seasons one and two)

Stefan Molyneux, the far-right host of the “Free Domain Radio” podcast and its corresponding channel on YouTube, told listeners that he believed the mega-hit Netflix show “Stranger Things” is actually a veiled allegory about mass migration.

In a spoiler-laced video uploaded last week, Molyneux revealed that he believes Stranger Things, a sci-fi thriller about a small town’s efforts to combat otherworldly monsters after a government experiment goes haywire, is secretly a right-wing commentary about mass migration in Western nations. Molyneux’s theory ignores the cast’s call to arms against President Trump’s anti-Muslim immigration restrictions during the Screen Actors Guild awards earlier this year.

But despite this, Molyneux argued that the plot of “Stranger Things” is “an allegory for mass immigration” and even compared one of the show’s main characters to anti-immigrant provocateur Ann Coulter.

“It is far more expensive to set a show in the past, so why was the 1980s chosen?” Molyneux asked. “First of all, in order to have shadowy monsters and missing people you cannot have a population armed with cell phones. However, I would also argue that since the entire story is an allegory for mass …read more

MPs misled on Catholic school admissions claims

Comments Off on MPs misled on Catholic school admissions claims

Secretary of State for Education Justine Greening MP

Misleading claims made by the Catholic Education Service regarding the admission arrangements of Catholic state schools in England have been repeated in Parliament. During the most recent Education Questions in the House of Commons, two questions were asked by MPs to Education Secretary Justine Greening relating to the Government’s proposals on faith schools admissions. The MPs urged the Secretary of State to drop the so-called 50% cap on religious selection at free schools, stating that the cap is preventing new Catholic free schools from opening.

This assertion reflects misleading statements made by the Catholic Education Service (CES), which claims that the 50% cap on religious selection ‘contravenes canon law’ and that Catholic schools must select 100% of their places on the basis of religion.

Humanists UK, which believes that no state school should discriminate against children on the basis of religion, has corrected the CES’ claims in a briefing to parliamentarians. Describing the claims as ‘demonstrably false’, the briefing notes that:

  1. a) the vast majority of Catholic private schools in England do not select all their places with reference to religion;
  2. b) many Catholic state schools in Scotland …read more

Jesus was the key cause of a nasty family breakup in India

Comments Off on Jesus was the key cause of a nasty family breakup in India

Pictured above are the wife and four children of a Hindu man in India who disowned them after they found Jesus and converted to Christianity.

In February of this year, according to this report, Ramesh Kumar decided he could no longer tolerate his family’s attendance at a local church, and demanded that they cease observing Christian worship.

When they did not give in to his demand he began beating his wife and children and, despite his well paying job as a government employee, he cut them off financially in September.

Matters turned really ugly when Kumar submitted a complaint to the police in which he “fabricated” a story claiming that his family threatened to “take me church forcefully” and “want me to change my religion” .

Kumar further alleged that when he refused to do that:

Family members tied my legs and hands and took me to the church. My son said if you will not go to church with us then we can kill you.

On three occasions times the entire family were called into the police station in the State of Haryana in Northern India for questioning and asked:

Why you have changed your religion and beat your father?

The police, however, refused to believe …read more

Turkish authorities have just ramped up their war on gays

Comments Off on Turkish authorities have just ramped up their war on gays

In June this year Turkish police viciously attacked participants at a gay pride march on Istanbul. And today it’s reported that authorities in Turkey have ramped up their opposition to all things gay by outlawing events organised by lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex rights groups in its capital city, Ankara.

The ban has been imposed to protect “public security”, the Ankara Governor’s office said. The restrictions came into effect yesterday (Saturday) and will last for an “indefinite” period, applying to all LGBT+ film screenings, theatres, panels and exhibitions.

The governor’s office claimed such events may cause animosity between different groups and endanger “health and morality”, as well as the rights and freedoms of others.

It warned some groups may be provoked by LGBTI events and take action against participants due to

Certain social sensitivities.

Unlike many Muslim countries, homosexuality is not a crime in Turkey and numerous LGBTI associations are legally registered with the state. But there is widespread hostility and rights activists say LGBTI people face discrimination and stigma.

The announcement by Ankara’s government is likely to deepen concern about civil liberties under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Authorities in Ankara had already banned a German gay film festival on Wednesday, the …read more

Elderly woman shot following a firearm safety lesson in church

Comments Off on Elderly woman shot following a firearm safety lesson in church

An as yet unnamed 81-year-old Tennessee man accidentally shot his wife, 80, in the First United Methodist Church in Tellico Plains, pictured above, after he gave parishioners a lesson in gun safety on Thursday.

The Christian Post reports that the bullet tore through the woman’s lower left abdomen, exited the right side of her abdomen, then ripped through her right forearm before exiting through the back of her forearm.

The man was celebrating at an early Thanksgiving event with around 20 other seniors citizens. In light of the recent mass shootings in the US, including the massacre at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs in Texas, the group decided to discuss gun safety.

The man quickly volunteered to demonstrate, declaring:

Well, I’ve got my gun on me.

Tellico Plains Police Chief Russ Parks explained that the man pulled out his holster to reveal a .38-caliber Ruger handgun. He then removed the magazine, cleared the chamber and began showing the gun to the other parishioners.

The group later discussed how to bring guns to church safely.

After the discussion and demonstration, the man replaced the magazine in his gun and holstered it.

The group was cleaning up after the meal when a church member who had …read more

Deranged NY rabbi weighs in to support judge Roy Moore

Comments Off on Deranged NY rabbi weighs in to support judge Roy Moore

On Thursday, a conference of crazies took place in Alabama in support of beleaguered judge Roy Moore. Among them was Rabbi Noson Shmuel Leiter, head of Jews for Decency, who is pictured above with the infamous Gordon Klingenschmitt, right.

According to this report, the New York rabbi was among about 20 faith and “pro-family” leaders who spoke at a press conference in support of the US Senate candidate as he battles allegations of sexual impropriety toward minors in the late 1970s.

Leiter, who is also Executive Director of Help Rescue Our Children, praised Moore’s:

Proven track record of fighting for public policy based on Biblical values and not perversion, and that is why he is a target.

The press conference was hosted by Faith2Action President Janet Porter and Dr Steven Hotze, CEO of Restore Our Godly Heritage PAC. It came a week after the Washington Post reported on four women who stated they were pursued by Moore when he was in his early 30s and they were in their teens.

Many of the speakers focused on abortion and homosexuality, stating that Moore’s outspoken views against both have made him a target. For them, an unthinkable act would be electing a …read more
