The Christian Outlook – December 3, 2022 Kevin McCullough and Rob Bluey, of the Heritage Foundation, look at the “Respect for Marriage Act” and how the bill, contrary to its name, does nothing to strengthen one-man/one-woman marriage. Bob Burney and Tim Throckmorton, of the Family Research Council, advise religious schools and non-profits to pay very close attention to the “Respect for Marriage Act.” Dr. Albert Mohler highlights the argument undergirding the “Respect for Marriage Act” that advocates really don't and really can't believe. Dr. Albert Mohler talks with Yaron Hazony about his book, “Conservatism: A Rediscovery.”See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Respect for Marriage Act seems innocuous enough. Supporters say that it would codify same-sex marriage in America. But what would it really do? Religious leaders have warned that it would put individuals and institutions who abide by biblical teachings that marriage is between a man and a woman in the crosshairs of lawsuits and the government. We turn to Travis Weber, J.D., the Vice President for Policy and Government Affairs at Family Research Council, for answers. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

SHAWN JUSTICEShawn has been a filmmaker since his teens, establishing his production company at 19 years old in 1989. He did corporate and commercial work to pay the bills, but has always had a heart toward Kingdom stories. He started writing screenplays in 1992 and eventually produced and directed his first feature film in 1999, GOING THE DISTANCE, partnering with the Family Research Council for distribution.Shawn continued to write multiple screenplays and serve his corporate clients knowing one day the doors would open to producing other films. What he didn't know is that it would be his son's passing in 2012 that would provide the funds to be able to do this. Caleb Justice is named as the sole Executive Producer of THE RECONCILER movie shot in 2014. Shawn has since gone on to direct and produce the films OUT OF THE DARKNESS, A MURDER OF INNOCENCE, and THE NARROW ROAD. He also sold his script JUSTICE that eventually became the film with the same title now on Netflix.It wasn't until 2021 that he directed his first short film, LUCIFER AND THE FATHER, created by his friend Scott Galbraith. Shawn involved his wife, Sara, to re-write the script weeks before shooting. The short film has received multiple awards and is now serving as a pilot of a television series. Their oldest son, Joshua, has worked with his father on all of the film projects since THE RECONCILER.Shawn is currently continuing to serve his corporate clients, but is in talks with multiple groups to sell existing screenplays, partner with others on documentaries and films, as well as take on much larger films as a for-hire production company. It's about to get even more interesting.SARA JUSTICESara has always had an artistic bent. She helped as an Art Director for a few scenes in GOING THE DISTANCE. She also was an Assistant Editor to Shawn on OUT OF THE DARKNESS and other trailers. Knowing she had skills, Shawn asked her to be the Production Designer on A MURDER OF INNOCENCE, THE NARROW ROAD, and LUCIFER AND THE FATHER.Although Sara has reviewed and provided insight into previous screenplays of Shawn's, LUCIFER AND THE FATHER is the first where she has worked alongside him to labor together in writing something new. She may have hung up her Production Designer title, but if the short film becomes a series, the plan is for her to work with Shawn on future episodes as a Writer.Sara has mainly focused her attention on raising her four children with Shawn. Three of them are now adults. The lessons God has taught her and Shawn through the passing of their second son who loved Jesus with all his heart has helped strengthen their marriage and the value of their time earth-side.

Reviewing the data, it quickly becomes apparent that what people think they believe (a Biblical Christian Worldview) is not what they are actually willing to accept when pressed. What is perhaps most shocking, if one is willing to accept the data, is that among those who attend evangelical churches, 81% claim to have a Biblical Christian worldview, however when questioned in detail, only 21% are willing to fully accept its tenants. Looking deeper into the demographics it should not be a surprise that our acceptance of those theological constructs deteriorates the younger the generation polled. That reality, if left unchecked, does not bode well for our future. This is just further documentation that America has long since left its position as a Christian nation, regardless of the rhetoric of its population to the contrary. Undermining it all is the realization that, when pressed on contemporary issues that run counter to a Biblical Christian worldview, many submit to evolving cultural norms rather than remaining “aligned with the Bible, acknowledging its truth and applicability to every area of life.”

It's Monday, November 7th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. By Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) Myanmar Bible School shelled by Burmese Army Last Thursday, a Baptist seminary in Shan State, Myanmar was attacked by the Burmese Army, injuring four men in the dormitory, reports International Christian Concern. The victims were hit by shrapnel and sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Those injured were Myitung Doi La, age 24; Ndau Awng San, age 27; Nhkum Sut Awng, age 21; and Sumlut Brang San, age 22. One local resident said that this kind of attack by the military threatens the Christian Bible School and the entire Kachin nation. MSNBC host vs. New York Governor Kathy Hochul on crime MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle surprisingly called out Democrat New York Governor Kathy Hochul for the state's out-of-control crime surge, saying on Friday's edition of “The 11th Hour”, “we don't feel safe.” RUHLE: “But I'm gonna interrupt you then. Here's the problem. We don't feel safe. You might be working closely with [New York City] Mayor [Eric] Adams, you may have spent a whole lot of money, but I walk into my pharmacy and everything is on lockdown because of shoplifters. I'm not going in the subway. People don't feel safe in this town. So, you may have done these things. But, right now, we're not feeling good. We're worried we could be San Francisco.” Oprah's hypocritical endorsement of John Fetterman TV icon Oprah Winfrey endorsed Democrat John Fetterman on Thursday in Pennsylvania's hotly contested Senate race and rejected Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz, whom she had helped launch to stardom nearly two decades ago when she brought him on her popular daytime talk show as a regular guest, reports CBS News. Until now, Winfrey had said she would leave the election to Pennsylvanians, but she changed that position in an online discussion. Winfrey said, "I said it was up to the citizens of Pennsylvania, but I will tell you all this, if I lived in Pennsylvania, I would have already cast my vote for John Fetterman for many reasons.” Joy Behar of ABC's The View congratulated Fetterman on last Friday's program. BEHAR: “Overnight, our very own Oprah Winfrey endorsed you over Dr. Oz in the race. We all know that Oprah is the creator of Dr. Oz's TV career, and she went for you instead. What does this mean to you and your campaign?” FETTERMAN: “I mean, she's an icon. I mean, it's, it's it's unbelievable. It's an honor. And I'm so grateful. And, you know, she understands what's at stake here in this race. And as I said, I was just incredibly, incredibly honored to have her support in this race. Truly.” Ironically enough, Oprah mirrors Fetterman's radical support of abortion despite the fact that her own mother, Vernita Lee, who died in 2018, was pregnant out of wedlock at the age of 17, and courageously chose life for Oprah. In the April 17, 2019 edition of O Magazine, Oprah recalled telling her mother the year before, “I know it must have been hard for you as a 17-year-old pregnant, scared girl in Mississippi. Many people no doubt told you to get rid of that baby. To have an abortion or give me away. But you didn't. And for that I thank you. I know you did the best you could with what you had. And for that I thank you. And look how it's all turned out.” In Matthew 23:27, Jesus confronted the Pharisees about their hypocrisy, saying, “You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside, but on the inside are full of dead men's bones and everything unclean.” Cast a Biblically-informed vote If you've not already voted during early voting, make sure to cast a Biblically informed vote, tomorrow, Tuesday, November 8th. To get to know the candidates on your ballot better, click on iVoterGuide.com, and type in your address. The two primary organizers are Family Research Council and the American Family Association along with 62 other pro-life, pro-family partners. These include races in all 50 states.  In fact, they have researched 51,245 candidates, looked at 6,437 endorsement sources, and 701 legislative scorecards. Most Americans don't view the Bible as primary determinant of right and wrong A new study reveals that less than one-third of Americans believe the Bible should serve as the foundation for determining right and wrong, even as most people express support for traditional moral values, reports The Christian Post. It's part of the fourth installment of the America's Values Study, released by the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University, When asked to identify what they viewed as the primary determinant of right and wrong in the U.S., a plurality of participants (42%) said: “what you feel in your heart.” An additional 29% cited majority rule as their desired method for determining right and wrong, while just 29% expressed a belief that the principles laid out in the Bible should determine the understanding of right and wrong in the U.S. Not surprisingly, that figure rose to 66% among Spiritually Active, Governance Engaged Conservative Christians, or SAGE Cons, a demographic description coined by Christian pollster George Barna. Singer Aaron Carter dead at 34 And finally, Aaron Carter, a former child pop singer and younger brother of Backstreet Boys' Nick Carter, drowned in his bathtub in Lancaster, California on Saturday, reports CNN. He was 34. During the late 90s and early 2000s, he sold millions of copies of his four albums, the first of which was when he was only nine years old, according to the BBC. As he grew older, Carter transitioned into rap, and also appeared in Broadway musicals and on ABC's Dancing With The Stars. He faced a number of struggles, checking in to rehab several times and filing a bankruptcy petition in 2013 over millions of dollars of debt, much of it tax-related. James 4:14 says, “You do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.” So, let's redeem the time.

(Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark Myanmar refugees fleeing into India Refugees from Myanmar's majority-Christian Chin state are pouring over the border into India's Mizoram state. At the end of last month, 1,800 new refugees arrived in Mizoram from Myanmar, bringing the total number of refugees to nearly 50,000. Myanmar, and particularly Chin state, have been ripped apart by fierce conflict after the military took over the country in a coup last year. People in Chin state have been at the forefront of resisting the military takeover and thus have suffered the most for it. The Myanmar military has bombed churches, burned villages, and killed many civilians, including pastors. As of this month, there are an estimated 1.3 million internally displaced persons in Myanmar. Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ there. See what you can do to help through MissionToMyanmar.com. 15% decline in European births A new study found the number of births in Europe declined nearly 15% in January 2021 compared with January 2018 and 2019. The decline in births came 9-10 months after the first COVID-19 lockdowns.  The study found countries with longer lockdowns had fewer pregnancies. Sweden–one of few European countries that did not implement lockdowns–experienced normal birth rates. British Parliament greenlights abortion amendment Members of Parliament in the United Kingdom approved a new pro-abortion amendment to the Government's Public Order Bill this week. The amendment would put buffer zones around abortions mills in England and Wales. Those who “interfere” with someone seeking an abortion within the buffer zone could face up to two years in prison. Alithea Williams with the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children warned, “Ordinary, peaceful citizens now risk substantial jail time for the simple act of praying in public, and offering help to women in need.” Chase Bank's anti-Christian hysteria JPMorgan Chase Bank recently canceled the account of the U.S. nonprofit National Committee for Religious Freedom. Chase even demanded the nonprofit's donor list and any political candidates it would be supporting for the account to be reinstated. The nonprofit was started by Sam Brownback, former U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom. Appearing on Washington Watch with Tony Perkins, a Family Research Council broadcast, Brownback warned that other faith-based organizations are facing similar corporate suppression. BROWNBACK: “I don't know how many groups, but so far it's been dozens that I have personally talked to that have had a similar experience like this that are faith-based or faith-related organizations. And to me, this is terribly troubling. This is one of the very foundational pieces of human rights that allowed for the freedom of creation of this nation.” Send a polite letter of objection to Jamie Dimon, CEO of Chase Bank, 270 Park Ave, 31st Floor, New York, NY 10017.

Voter interest appears strong like it was before the 2018 midterms. Meanwhile, Democrats are losing their lead in the generic ballot, the question of whether voters support a Democrat or Republican candidate. Data from yesterday's FiveThirtyEight generic ballot found voters just barely favor Democrats at 45.3% over Republicans at 45%. That's down from six months ago, when Democrat support was leading by over two percentage points. Daniel 2:21 says that God “changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.” IRS released higher tax brackets and standard deductions In the face of surging inflation, the Internal Revenue Service released higher tax brackets and standard deductions. The standard deduction for single individuals is up $900 to $13,850, while the deduction for married couples is up $1,800 to $27,700.   Meanwhile, the cost of living is up over last year. Rent has increased by 7.2%, electricity by 15.5%, groceries by 13%, and health insurance by 30%.  Southern Baptist: Only Biblically-qualified men can be pastors And finally, the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary  adopted a resolution that only biblically qualified men can be pastors. The resolution supports the public position taken by the seminary's president Albert Mohler during this year's Southern Baptist Convention meeting. The resolution comes after SBC-affiliated Saddleback Church ordained three women last year. Mohler praised the seminary on Tuesday for “defining pastor as both function and office and limited to men by Scripture.” Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 1:13, “Hold on to the pattern of sound teaching that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Thursday, October 20th, in the year of our Lord 2022.

It's Monday, September 26th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Adam McManus Muslims kill nun in Mozambique, Africa On September 16, a group of ISIS-affiliated Muslim militants stormed a Catholic mission compound in the city of Chipene in Mozambique, Africa, reports International Christian Concern. The gunmen set fire to the church, the hospital, and the schools there. While most of the nuns and other inhabitants were able to flee, one woman, an Italian nun named Maria De Coppi, was fatally shot in the head as she ran towards a dormitory where it is believed that students were hiding. She was 83 years old and spent 59 years serving the people of Mozambique, a country in Southeast Africa. Mozambique is the 41st most dangerous country in the world for Christians, according to Open Doors. Texas judge clears way for 8-year-old boy to be castrated Last Thursday, a Texas mother, Anne Georgulas, who intends to “transition” her 8-year-old son, James, into a girl named “Luna,” won in court, reports the “Save James” Facebook page. The Facebook page reported that, “The judge has ruled against Jeff Younger, [the father], as expected. James and Jude, [his twin brother], are lost. “A small hearing over Zoom was all Judge Mary Brown of the 301st District Court [in Dallas] needed to remove a father from his children's lives, a hearing that the public was not given access to which goes against Texas law. “Jeff [Younger, the father,] has almost no access to any information about the boys. It's almost as if he is not their father at all.” In a September 13th post, “Save James” reported that “Anne [Georgulas, the mother] stated she wants to take Jeff [Younger]'s boys to California where child sterilization is legal.” In August 2021, Judge Brown granted full custody of eight-year-old James Younger to his mother. Not surprisingly, Georgulas' announced retirement date, September 30th, coincides with the likely date of California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsome's signature of “the transgender state of refuge” bill into law, allowing her to chemically castrate her 8-year-old son James. John 3:20 says, “For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light lest his deeds be exposed.” CA legislature greenlights radical “transgender state of refuge” bill On August 29th, the California legislature passed the radical so-called “trans state of refuge bill,” or Senate Bill 107, which has alarmed parents nationwide. It's now sitting on the desk of California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom who is likely to sign it by September 30th. Introduced by Democratic State Sen. Scott Wiener, a self-professed homosexual, this bill aims to make the state of California a “refuge” for transgender surgeries for children from across America, reports The Washington Stand. According to Wiener's press release, “If these parents and their kids come to California, the legislation will help protect them from having their kids taken away from them or from being criminally prosecuted for supporting their trans kids' access to healthcare.” The bill would allow minors to obtain procedures such as puberty blockers, hormones, and gender transition surgeries, which several states are restricting or banning altogether. Parenthetically, Senator Wiener wants to make drag queen shows mandatory for schoolkids and previously introduced a bill to let judges exempt some homosexual pedophiles from the sex offender registry. In a September 20th letter, signed by 50 conservative groups including Alliance Defending Freedom and Family Research Council, they urged Governor Newsom to veto Senate Bill 107. They wrote, “We are writing to respectfully request that you veto SB 107, a dangerous piece of legislation which ignores the established authority of the other 49 states, and also violates the fundamental rights of parents while increasing the risk of irreversible harm to America's children.” Check out a special link in our transcript today at www.TheWorldview.com to watch an interview with Jonathan Keller, President of California Family Policy, who describes Senate Bill 107 in greater depth. CA Governor's pro-abortion billboards that invoke the Bible Last Thursday, Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced his state's launch of seven pro-abortion billboards that invoke the Bible, reports The Daily Caller. The billboards advertise the recently launched website abortion.ca.gov, which provides information to help mothers in pro-life states kill their babies in California. The billboards are going up in Texas, Indiana, Ohio, Mississippi, South Dakota, South Carolina and Oklahoma. Shockingly, the billboards in Mississippi and Oklahoma invoke passages from the Bible to promote their abortion site. The billboards quoted Mark 12:31 — “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these.” By the way, the other commandment to which “these” refers is “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” And, The Worldview would add, if you love the Lord your God, you will hate what He hates. In Proverbs 6:16-19, Solomon writes that the Lord hates seven things “that are detestable to Him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies, and a person who stirs up conflict in the community." Governor Newsome is guilty as sin of all seven! Chick-fil-A employee rescued woman and baby from carjacker And finally, how about some good news? A Florida Chick-fil-A employee came to the rescue when a woman with a baby had her car keys stolen in the restaurant parking lot. He took down the thief, helping foil the attempted carjacking, and has since been recognized for his bravery with a community service citizens' award, reports The Epoch Times. On September 14, Mykel Gordon was working his afternoon shift in Fort Walton Beach, Florida when he heard screaming in the parking lot. Running to investigate, he found a woman with a baby in her arms. The woman was lifting her baby out of her car when she was approached by a man holding a stick, who demanded her keys. The man, 43-year-old William Branch, snatched the keys from the woman's waistband and got inside the vehicle. When Gordon arrived at the scene, he pulled Branch from the vehicle and wrestled him to the ground, sustaining a punch to the face. After a witness  captured the takedown on video, it went viral on Twitter where it has been viewed 8.5 million times. Thankfully, he was able to keep Branch subdued until police arrived on the scene. In the award ceremony, these were the words of the Sheriff. SHERIFF: “Due to Mykel's courageous actions and unhesitating response, no innocent patrons were injured during this incident.  For his heroic actions, Thomas Mykel Gordon is being presented with the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office Community Service Award. Congratulations!” GORDON: “Thank you very much.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Monday, September 26th, in the year of our Lord 2022. Subscribe by iTunes or email to our unique Christian newscast at www.TheWorldview.com.

It's Friday, September 16th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldeview.com) Pakistani court denied bail to Christian A Pakistani court denied bail to a 57-year-old Christian named Anwar Masih who has been imprisoned in Pakistan on false blasphemy charges, reports International Christian Concern. Police in Pakistan initially arrested Masih in June of 2020 for allegedly blaspheming Islam's false prophet Muhammad. Matthew 7:15 warns, “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” Masih's wife and his daughter, who married a Muslim man in 2017, both converted to Islam away from Christianity. This created tension between Masih's wife and daughter and the rest of Masih's family, who remained devoutly Christian. Masih's wife enlisted local police to mediate between the two religious sides of the family. When the police became involved, they chose to launch a legal assault against Masih. Despite the injustice of the situation, Masih's son asserted that he and his Christian family members remain committed to Jesus, even to death. Pakistan is the 8th worst nation for the persecution of Christians, according to Open Doors. FBI seized Mike Lindell's phone On Tuesday, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell revealed that the FBI seized his phone while he was at a Hardee's drive-through in Mankato, Minnesota, reports The Epoch Times. Lindell announced on his live-streamed show, “The Lindell Report,” that he and a travel buddy had pulled into the drive-through after a fishing trip when his car was surrounded by FBI agents. LINDELL: “We go through a Hardee's drive thru. They take the order. She says, ‘Pull ahead.' They had to make the order. We pull ahead, and a car comes perpendicular, and parks a little ways in front of us. I've been around the block, and I said to my buddy, ‘That's either a bad guy or it's FBI. “Then another car, at the same time, pulls up and pins us in here, to our right side. Now, remember, I got the wall to the left. I just passed the order thing where I can only get out about three feet. And then another guy comes flying up. He was pinning in the back of the car. “I opened my door and I say, ‘Who are you?' He says, ‘We're FBI.'  I say, ‘Show me your badges!'” Lindell said the agents asked him about voting machines in Colorado and the embattled Colorado Mesa County clerk Tina Peters, who oversees the county's elections. Finally, the lead FBI agent explained to Mike Lindell why they were there. LINDELL: “Then he goes, ‘I got some bad news.' And I go, ‘Okay, here it comes.' He goes, ‘We're taking your cell phone. We have a warrant for your cell phone. I go, ‘No.' I said, ‘I run five companies off that. I don't have a computer. My hearing aids run off this. Everything runs off my phone. And then I said, ‘If I don't give you it to you, will you arrest me then?'” Lindell summarized what he has maintained about the corruption of both the voting machines and many Democrat officials in swing states. LINDELL: “Jenna Griswold, one of the most evil people this world has ever seen, the [Democrat] Secretary of State of Colorado, has done nothing but collude with [the makers of the electronic voting machines] Dominion – Dominion's headquarters is in Colorado -- to hurt our country, to take our country down, to hurt the people of Colorado. “Now, they're hurting MyPillow; they're hurting my employees.  I don't have all the data I lost on my phone. They wouldn't let me do a backup, download, anything.” Lindell's phone was subpoenaed as part of a federal grand jury investigation in Colorado.  The incident comes as allies of former President Donald Trump are being targeted by the FBI amid investigations. Lindell is an advocate for election integrity and has been vocal about allegations of widespread voting irregularities and election fraud during the November 2020 general election. Bracing for a railroad strike Car buyers might not get the vehicle they want on time, commuter rail lines could see service disrupted, and shipments from everything from oil to livestock feed could be snarled, reports The Associated Press.

In this episode I bring to light some of the dangerous things that children are being exposed in the Government Schools across America. According to Cathy Ruse (Senior Fellow and Director of Human Dignity at Family Research Council.) in a report from a few years ago titled "SEX EDUCATION IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS: SEXUALIZATION OF CHILDREN AND LGBT INDOCTRINATION", "Year after year, sex ed programs push the limits on what is appropriate, both in terms of the material presented to students and the age at which it is presented. In many school districts today, lessons introduce sexual concepts to very young children and promote risky sexual behavior to vulnerable teens and pre-teens." She goes to say that "The LGBTQ movement demands that homosexual relationships be presented to children as good, healthy, and equal in every way to heterosexuality within man-woman marriage. Many sex ed developers and providers are all too happy to comply." In a recent article Film maker Chris Rufo said that he "obtained a trove of publicly accessible documents from Los Angeles Unified that illustrates the extent to which gender ideology has entered the mainstream of the nation's second-largest school district. Since 2020, the district's Human Relations, Diversity, and Equity department has created an infrastructure to translate the basic tenets of academic queer theory into K-12 pedagogy. The programming includes a wide range of conferences, presentations, curricula, teacher-training programs, adult-driven “gender and sexuality” clubs, and school-sponsored protests." These and many other reports should be cause for concern with regards to sending children to be educated by these institutions. This episode is a send in a series making the case for parents to consider removing their children out of Government School.

It's Thursday, August 11th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark Pakistan jailing Christians New reports from the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom highlight the persecution of Christians in Iran and Pakistan. In Pakistan, Muslims accuse Christians of blasphemy against the Islam faith. They also target believers with lynchings, mob violence, forced conversions, and the destruction of church property. Fifty-five people are imprisoned in the country on charges of blasphemy against Islam. Christians accused of blasphemy face violence, prison, and death. Iran spreading anti-Christian propaganda In Iran, the government is using media outlets to spread anti-Christian propaganda. Christians then face discrimination from their community because of the false messaging. Officials also use a pretext of national security to target Christian converts. Jesus said in Matthew 5:11, “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.” India's first March for Life Christians in India held the country's first National March for Life yesterday. Pro-lifers also observed a day of mourning in remembrance of the hundreds of millions of unborn babies killed in abortion over the last 50 years. India legalized abortion in 1971. Since then, over 15 million babies are murdered in the womb every year, totaling nearly 800 million deaths. Baby girls are often targeted in abortion. A 2018 government report found 63 million girls were “missing” from the population.  Minnesota jury affirms Christian pharmacist's pro-life stand Last Friday, a Minnesota jury ruled in favor of a Christian pharmacist who refused to fill a contraception prescription because of his religious beliefs. Andrea Anderson filed the lawsuit against pharmacist George Badeaux in 2019 after he declined to provide the contraceptive. He told Fox News he could not be part of ending a human life. Listen. BADEAUX: “I couldn't fill this prescription because one of the possible mechanisms of action of the medication is that it can prevent the implantation of a fertilized egg into the uterus. And, in my mind, that would be ending a new human life.” Biden expands taxpayer funding of abortion On Sunday, the U.S. Senate passed the $430 billion Inflation Reduction Act. Sadly, the bill expands taxpayer funding of abortion through the Obamacare health insurance plans. The bill also gives $80 billion to the IRS to conduct enforcement activities. Pro-life activists are concerned about this in light of previous IRS discrimination against conservative groups. Last Monday, House Democrats demanded the IRS and U.S. Treasury review the tax status of the evangelical group Family Research Council.  Isaiah 10:1-2 says, “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees . . . to rob the needy of justice, and to take what is right from the poor of My people.” GOP leaders denounce FBI raid of Trump's home GOP leaders are denouncing the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home on Monday. The raid reportedly involved classified documents allegedly taken by Trump after he left the White House.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called the raid “weaponized politicization” by the Justice Department.  The California Republican also said, “When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned.” Immigration will drive America's population growth The Congressional Budget Office released a Demographic Outlook report last month. The report anticipates the U.S. population will increase from 335 million to 369 million over the next 30 years. Immigration is expected to drive America's population growth in the next 20 years as deaths outpace births. The report predicts the fertility rate will increase from 1.60 births per woman to 1.75 births by 2031. That's still below the replacement rate of 2.1. Pastors: Comfort is America's #1 idol And finally, a new study by Lifeway Research found that most pastors believe modern-day idols have influenced their congregations. Over half of U.S. Protestant pastors say comfort, control or security, money, and approval are idols in their churches. Thirty percent of pastors said comfort was the most influential idol. Scott McConnell with Lifeway Research said, “The largest number of congregations battle the influence of first-world comforts, and churches' second most common modern-day idol is the commitment to keeping secure the comforts they already have.” Paul wrote in Philippians 3:8, “I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ."

Good Monday everyone, this is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief, for Monday, July 25th, 2022. I’m here to bring you your weekly dose of what you may have missed over the weekend. For those keeping count, there have been over 100 attacks against pro-life groups, many carried out by Jane's Revenge since May. Ah yes ladies and gentleman, the side of tolerance and acceptance is at it again! https://thepostmillennial.com/over-100-attacks-against-pro-life-groups-many-carried-out-by-janes-revenge-since-may?utm_campaign=64487 A new report detailed over 100 attacks against pro-life organizations across the country since the leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft majority opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case that eventually led to the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Many of the attacks have been attributed to Jane’s Revenge, a far-left activist group that has claimed responsibility for the violence. Lawmakers called for the group to be designated a terrorist organization. According to articles compiled by the Family Research Council, the "Summer of Rage" across the country has included not only demonstrations in front of the Supreme Court and the homes of justices but also dozens of acts of violence, destruction, and harassment aimed at intimidating anti-abortion conservatives and Christians. Jane’s Revenge took its name from the Jane Collective, a 1960’s pro-abortion group, and has gained support from leftwing activists, especially those in the Madison, Wisconsin area. A homeland security analyst theorized that Jane’s Revenge was a "loose-knit" collection of activists rather than a formal organization. https://twitter.com/i/status/1524749969994883079 - Play Video However, Robert Evans, who first obtained the initial statement from Jane’s Revenge, theorized that the group was aiming to inspire copycats through their tactics and messaging online where the organization has thrived, especially on Twitter. Two days before the first Molotov cocktail attack on Wisconsin Family Action on May 8, 2022, a Facebook page of a group called International Workers of the World (IWW) of Madison Wisconsin posted a history of the Jane Collective. The outlet added that last year, the IWW Madison shared multiple posts promoting violent behavior, including, "a primer on how to fight 'state oppression' by protesting and evading law enforcement." Other activist groups rallied around the attack on Wisconsin Family Action. A group calling themselves Unnamed Autonomous Collective published a statement lauding the attack and calling for more. Let’s change gears for a minute… Remember when Pastor Doug Wilson wrote, Ride Sally Ride, and then not long after, a man actually married a robot not long after his book was released? Well, how about the people who have accused him or condemned him of being friends to pedophiles? On Darren Doan’s show, all my friends are heretics, check it out by the way… Doug mentioned how those very same people, will be friends to pedophiles at some point… https://youtu.be/TEpsoQqfWtk - Play 16:10 - 17:40 well, maybe we’re closer to that than we realized. https://www.metroweekly.com/2018/07/tedx-speaker-argues-that-pedophilia-should-be-accepted-as-an-unchangeable-sexual-orientation/ TEDx speaker argues that pedophilia should be accepted as “an unchangeable sexual orientation” Play Video: https://twitter.com/wheresourlogic/status/1550935543785041921?s=12&t=1k2Nz8xDL3WyU0gDmI6ciw Mirjam Heine presented her talk “Pedophilia is a natural sexual orientation” at the University of Würtzberg in Germany, and said that pedophilia is like any other sexual orientation. While Heine clarified her comments by noting that “abusing children is wrong without any doubt,” she said that a “pedophile who doesn’t abuse children has done nothing wrong.” Well, Jesus mentioned something about committing adultery after llusting after a woman in your heart… Due to the backlash it received, TEDx eventually removed the video, though I’m sure you can find it on Twitter, or Youtube. It may have received backlash now, but nowadays, homosexuality is widely excepted, even by so-called conservatives… 71% in a recent gallup poll if I recall my last newsbrief correctly… FLF Conference Plug: Folks, our upcoming Fight Laugh Feast Conference is just 4-months away from happening in Knoxville TN, October 6-8!

In other news, Biden is once again trying to hit an all-time low… this time, with our emergency oil reserve! https://justthenews.com/government/white-house/us-strategic-petroleum-reserve-lowest-level-1985 With Strategic Petroleum Reserve at lowest level since 1985, US sells stockpiled oil to China While U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve stockpiles have fallen to their lowest level since 1985, every congressional Democrat voted Wednesday to continue sending oil from the SPR to China. Supplies have continuously dwindled since President Joe Biden entered office, but they started rapidly declining after Russia invaded Ukraine. In response, Biden sold millions more barrels from the reserves in April. During Biden's first month in office, the U.S. had about 638 million barrels in its reserve. By March, one month into Russia's invasion of Ukraine, reserves had fallen to 565 million barrels, and by July, 480 million barrels were left in the SPR, according to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. America's reserves have not been so low since June 1985, when the country was still building the SPR. Last week, Biden touted his actions to bring down oil prices. "I've been releasing about 1 million barrels of oil a day from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and rallied our global partners to release a combined 240 million barrels of oil onto the market," he tweeted. "Our actions are working, and prices are coming down." While average U.S. gas prices have tapered down from a peak of $5 a gallon — their highest level ever — gas is still significantly more expensive under Biden than under any previous administration, GasBuddy data shows. In response to the dwindling SPR, Rep. David Valadao (R-Calif.) offered a motion in the House last week to "immediately consider legislation that would prohibit the sale of oil drawn from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to entities under the control of the Chinese Communist Party or for export to China," he said in a press release. Every House Democrat voted against his motion. That same day, 19 House Republicans sent a letter to Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm demanding to know why her department sold nearly a billion barrels of SPR oil to an American subsidiary of Sinopec, a Chinese company in which Hunter Biden invested heavily. Earlier this month, Republican Senators introduced legislation seeking to stop oil sales to China, Russia, North Korea and Iran. "It's inexplicable that Biden would allow oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to be exported to China," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said at the time. https://www.theepochtimes.com/us-postal-service-set-to-make-40-percent-of-new-mail-trucks-electric_4618365.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport US Postal Service Set to Make 40 Percent of New Mail Trucks Electric The United States Postal Service (USPS) has announced plans to make at least 40 percent of its new delivery fleet electric. Back in February, the USPS had already said that it would procure 165,000 New Generation Delivery Vehicle (NGDV) trucks from Oshkosh Defense, of which 10 percent would be electric. But in a July 20 news release, the organization announced a new plan to buy 84,500 vehicles, of which 40 percent are estimated to be battery electric vehicles (BEVs). The 84,500 vehicles will include 50,000 NGDVs and 34,500 commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) vehicles. Of the 50,000 NGDVs, the minimum BEV percent is set to rise to 50 percent, up from 10 percent. The 34,500 COTS vehicles will be purchased over a two-year period. “The Postal Service reiterates its commitment to the fiscally responsible roll-out of electric-powered vehicles for America’s largest and oldest federal fleet. New NGDVs are expected to start servicing postal routes in late 2023,” the release said. The postal department is anticipating to evaluate and procure more vehicles over shorter time frames so as to be “more responsive” to changing market conditions, technology improvements, and “evolving operational strategy,” USPS stated. USPS’s original decision to buy 165,000 vehicles with 10 percent BEVs had attracted criticism from environmental groups. Sixteen states and several pro-environment groups filed lawsuits seeking to prevent USPS from buying gas-powered vehicles, arguing that such a move would trigger environmental harm for several decades. The push to make USPS adopt electric cars is based on the assumption that electric vehicles are more environmentally-friendly than combustion engine vehicles. Multiple studies have shown this to be false. In a 2018 article for Politico, Jonathan Lesser, the president of Continental Economics, revealed that newer combustion engine vehicles tend to be “really clean” when compared to old ones. “Today’s [combustion engine] vehicles emit only about 1 percent of the pollution than they did in the 1960s, and new innovations continue to improve those engines’ efficiency and cleanliness,” Lesser wrote. After taking into consideration the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s projected number of new electric vehicles, Lesser found that the net reduction in CO2 emissions between 2018 and 2050 will only be “about one-half of one percent of total forecast U.S. energy-related carbon emissions.” This is a change so small that it will have “no impact whatsoever” on climate, Lesser asserts. A 2020 study by Michael Kelly (pdf), the emeritus Prince Philip professor of technology at the University of Cambridge, found that if the UK were to replace all its combustion engine vehicles with electric vehicles, the country will need almost twice the annual global production of cobalt, almost the entire world’s neodymium, over 50 percent of the world’s 2018 copper production, and three-quarters of the global output of lithium carbonate. If all vehicles in the world were to be electrified, it would need such a large output of raw materials that even exceeds the known reserves of these materials. The environmental impact of mining these materials on such a large scale, some of which are toxic, would be massive.

And finally, the topic that I love… sports! https://nypost.com/2022/07/24/pete-rose-will-be-on-phillies-field-for-first-time-since-mlb-ban/ Pete Rose will be on Phillies’ field for first time since lifetime MLB ban Pete Rose is back — sort of. The 81-year-old will return to a major league diamond soon, making his first appearance in Philadelphia in August since he was banned from baseball. The sport’s all-time hits leader will be at the Phillies’ alumni weekend and be introduced on the field along with his former teammates from the 1980 World Series championship team on Aug. 7. That team’s shortstop, Larry Bowa, broke the news on Saturday night during the Phillies’ TV broadcast of their game against the Cubs. The Phillies said in a statement that they “received permission from the commissioner’s office” to invite Rose, and the team consulted with Rose’s teammates from the 1980 club and “everyone” wants him there.” In August of 1989, Rose was banned from the game following an investigation that found he bet on the Reds to win several games between 1985-87 while he was their manager. Rose applied for reinstatement in 2015, but it was rejected by commissioner Rob Manfred. It's now been 33 years since Pete Rose accepted a permanent ban for betting on baseball, and it's still one of the most hotly debated topics in all of professional sports.

Jim began with news that the White House announced this morning that President Biden checked positive for COVID-19. He's experiencing mild symptoms and is now taking Paxlovid. Jim encouraged listeners to pray for him.--Just after 5pm this past Monday, VCY America received an alert from the Family Research Council indicating that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was scheduling a vote on legislation to codify so-called same-sex marriage the following day.--In an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote in both houses of Congress, the Defense of Marriage Act was approved in 1996 and signed into law by then President Bill Clinton. But now, because of the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, there's concern from the -left- that other measures they embrace might be overturned.--Pelosi acted very quickly to bring about this vote in the House. Within about 24 hours of its introduction, they passed it -known as HR8404- by a vote of 267-157. In the Senate, the legislation is known as S.4556.--HR8404 says, -It is to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act and ensure respect for state regulation of marriage and for other purposes.- Actually, it appears to disrespect the state regulation of marriage. After all, if a state has a defense of marriage act in place, this law would negate that, saying that if any state allows for the marriage of two individuals, they must accept so-called same-sex marriage.--This program is highlighted by comments from a column by Todd Starnes, one from the Washington Stand, related headlines from Lifesite News, FRC Action and more, including Jim's listing of the 47 Republicans that joined Democrats to thumb their noses at the biblical definition of marriage.

Jim began with news that the White House announced this morning that President Biden checked positive for COVID-19. He's experiencing mild symptoms and is now taking Paxlovid. Jim encouraged listeners to pray for him.--Just after 5pm this past Monday, VCY America received an alert from the Family Research Council indicating that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was scheduling a vote on legislation to codify so-called same-sex marriage the following day.--In an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote in both houses of Congress, the Defense of Marriage Act was approved in 1996 and signed into law by then President Bill Clinton.

Wade, there's concern from the -left- that other measures they embrace might be overturned.--Pelosi acted very quickly to bring about this vote in the House. Within about 24 hours of its introduction, they passed it -known as HR8404- by a vote of 267-157.

A 27-year-old man has been charged in the sexual assault of a 10-year-old girl who reportedly traveled from Ohio to Indiana for an abortion in a case that drew international attention — and scrutiny — in the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade. After Republicans and conservative media spent days suggesting the viral story of a 10-year-old rape victim who was forced to travel across state lines for an abortion was fake before an arrest was made Wednesday, the Republican attorney general of Indiana now wants to investigate—the doctor who did the procedure. U.S. President Joe Biden said in an interview aired Wednesday that he would be willing to go to war with Iran to prevent the country from obtaining a nuclear weapon, a position that drew condemnation from advocacy groups and foreign policy analysts.
