Is The Burning Of Notre Dame An Omen?

Why Notre Dame burns: An omen?

American Renewal Project via auth.ccsend.com

My wife Cindy and I have been guests at several of Dennis and Sue Prager’s Shabbat dinners. [Needless to say that the Pragers are Jewish.] Dennis wrote an insightful article concerning the problems facing Europe and Western civilization. It is titled Notre Dame: An Omen and is reprinted in its entirety below.

To the challenge how to put a halt to the secularization of America, 1 Chronicles indicates it ought to be done by “those who have understanding of the times.”1 What is needed for the spiritual renewal of the nation are Issacharian leaders with know-how and mastery, who can recognize and implement Solomon’s directive that “By me kings reign, and rulers decree what is just.”2

Dr. Bruce K. Waltke pointed to the virtues begotten in those who have with awareness and perception “sought Wisdom, [and] submitted themselves to her teachings, and so attained the personal, spiritual, and moral knowledge” the contemplation of Scripture gives rise to. Wisdom’s virtues, such as “shrewdness, discretion, counsel, resourcefulness, and heroic strength,” says Waltke, “enable kings to reign and rulers to decree justice.”

The all-pervading confusion about gender that holds sway over the Millennial and Gen Z generations has its origins in the apostasy that started in the late 19th-century and continues unabated to this day. As a case in point, the latest media miracle-man, millennial South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, is running for president on the Democratic ticket. Latterly, Buttigieg pontificated about what he called the way for “developing a closer relationship with God.”

“And yes, Mr. Vice President,” he said in affirmation of his marriage to another man, “it has moved me closer to God.”3

Let’s be clear: Mayor Buttigieg is as hard left as any of the other Democrat presidential candidates, most notably Bernie Sanders. His only chance to come through in the Midwest and the South will be to rewrite the Bible so as to vindicate his lifestyle. Hence, his undue focus on the vice-president.

It didn’t happen overnight what is now taking place in America. The current savagery and ramping up of the Philistine vulgarity of the culture is on full display as the outgrowth of a nation moving away from God. The political, cultural, and personal war that is being waged in the pubic square is spiritual, against the living Biblical God Jehovah. As per the Tytler Cycle in History, each generation, as sin compounds, becomes more worldly and carnal. And then “carries to the third and fourth generations.”4

Unless broken by Christ’s intervention.

State-sponsored immorality codified into law, as exemplified by the Obergefell vs. Hodges decision in 2015, compounds the disconsolate outcome of America’s apostasy over the last century. At long last, Christians will either have to return to the model that Jesus said He would build, of which “the gates of Hades will not prevail against it,” or lose their freedom.5

Praise be to God for the good news that Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to stand.

Notre Dame: An Omen: Dennis Prager

The symbolism of the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral, the most renowned building in Western civilization, the iconic symbol of Western Christendom, is hard to miss.

It is as if God Himself wanted to warn us in the most unmistakable way that Western Christianity is burning – and with it, Western civilization.

Every major Western [and one major non-Western] social and intellectual force has conspired to rid Europe of Christianity and the civilization it produced.

Within the Western world, the French Enlightenment – the intellectual basis of the French Revolution and the modern West – sought to replace Christianity, and religion in general, with secularism rooted in reason. No God, Bible or Ten Commandments is necessary for morality or meaning: reason [and science] will replace them.

The two final deathblows to Christianity in Europe were the world wars. World War I ended most Westerners’ belief in the nation-state and the West. Christianity, already weakened by the Enlightenment, was further weakened by World War I. German Christians were killing millions of French and English Christians, and French and English Christians were killing millions of German Christians. So the argument and sentiment against Christianity went. Then World War II saw even more death on the Christian continent as well as the failure of Catholic and Protestant churches in Nazi Germany to offer even minimal noncompliance with the Nazis’ Jew-hatred.

With the end of World War II, every internal Western intellectual doctrine was secular. God, the Bible and religion were regarded at best as innocuous nonsense and at worst as noxious nonsense.

Meanwhile, Europeans brought a non-European ideology into Europe, an ideology that, for more than a thousand years, sought to replace Christianity as the world’s dominant religion. The Europeans, believing in nothing distinctly Christian or Western and believing in the moral and intellectual nonsense known as “multiculturalism” – a doctrine that asserts that all cultures are morally equivalent – saw nothing problematic in bringing millions of Muslims into Europe. They had no idea that most of these people actually wanted to replace Christianity with their religion. They had no idea because, in their ignorance and arrogance, they assumed that because they were secular multiculturalists, everybody else was, too – or would be, once they lived in Europe.

They were wrong, of course. And as a result, the two dominant forces in Europe — secular leftism and Islamism – sought the end of Christianity and the West. [The left believes that protecting Western civilization is equivalent to protecting white supremacy.]

This is not producing a pretty picture. Generally speaking, Islam has not been nearly as kind, tolerant, open, medically or scientifically innovative or intellectually curious as Western civilization [and yes, Nazism and communism were born in the West, but they were anti-Western].

Even without tens of millions of Muslims, post-Christian Europe has not produced a pretty picture. This was predicted in 1834, 100 years before Hitler’s rise, by the great German poet Heinrich Heine, a secular Jew [who later converted to Protestantism, “the ticket of admission into European culture”]:

“Christianity – and that is its greatest merit – has somewhat mitigated that brutal German love of war, but it could not destroy it. Should that subduing talisman, the cross, be shattered, the frenzied madness of the ancient warriors, that insane Berserk rage of which Nordic bards have spoken and sung so often, will once more burst into flame. This talisman [the cross] is fragile, and the day will come when it will collapse miserably. Then … a play will be performed in Germany that will make the French Revolution look like an innocent idyll.”

European Christians persecuted European Jews, often brutally. But it took a post-Christian ideology, secular Nazism, to produce Auschwitz – just as it took post-Christian communism to produce the Gulag, the Chinese Cultural Revolution and the Ukrainian and Cambodian genocides.

Moreover, Nazism and communism aside, the left’s belief that secular reason can replace God and the Bible turns out to be completely wrong. The alleged citadels of secular reason – the universities – are the most irrational and morally confused institutions in the West.

I don’t know if a worker accident or a radical Muslim set fire to Notre Dame Cathedral [as they have scores of other churches around Europe]. In terms of what the fire represented, it doesn’t much matter. What matters is the omen: Europe is burning, just as Notre Dame was.

Ilhan Omar And The Corbynization Of The Democratic Party

Ilhan Omar And The Corbynization Of The Democratic Party

Don’t be surprised if any time soon, members of the Democratic Party start speaking with British accents. Yes, that’s right: Bernie Sanders drops his Brooklynese for something akin to British brogue. And when that happens, the final Corbynization of the halls of Congress will be complete.

Yes, by that I mean the leader of the UK’s Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, who in his nearly four years at the helm, has taken an extreme left turn along the progressive highway. At times, Labour has bizarrely become apologists for Hamas and shown a shameless acceptance of antisemitism within its ranks. With the recent midterm elections in the United States, an American analog has been discovered within the Democratic Party.

Corbyn has countenanced, if not directly infected, Labour with old-school antisemitism, deploying modern-day anti-Zionism as a pretext for a more acceptable form of Jew-hatred that plays well at fashionable parties and governs like a twisted parliamentary parlor game.

Congress took an ominous step in the same direction this past week.

The Progressives are Coming! The Progressives are Coming! Paul Revere would have surely taken to his horse to deliver the warning that a new British import was arriving, if it hasn’t already been dangerously underway.

Democrats are about to confront their very own Darkest Hour. It started with what to do with Ilhan Omar, a freshly minted Minnesota lawmaker whose views about Israel, and American Jewry, are medieval in outlook and antisemitic at their core. She’s also among the new wave of progressive candidates that now have seats in Congress.

Does this variant of progressivism, inspired by income equality and the demand for free tuition and universal healthcare, also include yet another plank–an antisemitic agenda masked, hypocritically, as anti-colonialism directed solely at the Jewish state?

The events of this week may have supplied the answer. Even President Trump declared that the Democratic Party was now both “anti-Israel” and “anti-Jewish.”

Congresswoman Omar, now one of three Muslims in the House, has already displayed an anti-Israel bias that barely conceals her antisemitic bigotry. On Twitter she wrote, “Israel has hypnotized the world”–back in 2012, long before she took federal office. Later she tweeted, “May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

Once assuming her new position in Congress, she almost instantly tweeted how American support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins baby”–a reference to the hundred-dollar bill. She later apologized for these missteps, even though she was quickly trading again in antisemitic tropes, yielding no time to fellow colleagues.

Yet, the true nature of her antisemitic attitudes was fast approaching. Before a live audience in Washington, D.C., she said, “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is O.K. to push for allegiance to a foreign country.” In case her words were misconstrued, she added, “I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee.”

That’s right: the Jewish lobby pulls the strings in Congress; Jews have conflicted loyalties, with America of lesser importance to a people with eyes only for the Middle East; and Jewish money buys influence in ways that guns, teachers and tobacco could never possibly enjoy.

Congress decided to take action with a resolution condemning antisemitism and singling out Omar by name, much like Democrats were united, recently, in their insistence to censure Representative Steve King for his racist remarks. Of course, he was a Republican and a white male, a disfavored species of politics, gender and skin tone that is, nowadays, always deemed privileged, colonialist, and presumptively guilty.

In King’s case, given the grotesqueness of his past remarks, that presumption may have been deserved.

Omar is a dark-skinned Muslim woman. Among the new progressives, assisted by their intersectional compatriots on college campuses, marginalized people of color are, generally, excused from moral accountability–apologies are never necessary, ill-chosen words are never to be retracted, hatefulness is explained away, violence conveniently overlooked.

Progressivism of this sort is, ultimately, racist in its own right–the infantilizing of marginalized groups, treating them as if they are incapable of upholding standards. Which leads to a double standard: King was irredeemably demonic; Omar was merely mistaken, immune from censure or even a mild rebuke.

Congressional Majority Whip James Clyburn suggested that Omar had the moral authority to say almost anything–more so than children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors–since she spent part of her childhood in a Kenyan refugee camp after escaping with her family from war-torn Somalia.

Why that insulates her from charges of antisemitism was not explained.

Instead, her name was absent from a House resolution condemning hatred of all kinds, in general terms, completely ignoring why congressional action needed to be taken in the first place. There were so many objections raised by both the Progressive and Black Congressional Caucuses that there was thoughts of scrapping the resolution altogether. In the end, neither Omar nor Jew-hatred were given any special attention.

These very same leaders were surely appalled when others tried to make the Black Lives Matter Movement more inclusive by redefining it as All Lives Matter.

Special pleading, apparently, only works one way.

For his part, Corbyn has said that British Zionists are without “English irony”; he invited a Palestinian Islamist who claimed that Jews were absent from the World Trade Center on 9/11 to address Parliament; and in 2014, he participated in a ceremony honoring those Palestinians who massacred nearly the entire Israeli team during the 1972 Olympics in Munich.

Luciana Berger, a Jewish member of the British Parliament, has left the Labour Party and helped form another one. Eight other Labour MPs have abandoned their party in protest over Corbyn’s antics and excusal of fellow travelers in antisemitism.

Might there come a time when Democratic lawmakers find themselves increasingly uncomfortable sharing a party with progressives who have more in common with the Labour Party in the House of Commons then they do with more moderate Democrats and Republicans in Congress?

Minnesota Muslims and Jews Unite in Condemning Omar’s Anti-Semitism

US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s controversial comments have brought condemnation from both Jewish and Muslim constituents, says a CNN report.

Minnesota Muslims and Jews Unite in Condemning Omar’s Anti-Semitism
March 18 2019

Jewish and Muslim activists in Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s home district in Minnesota have denounced the congresswoman’s controversial remarks about Israel and Jews, CNN reported on Sunday.
Omar Jamal, Steve Hunegs, Mohamed Ahmed and Avi Olitzky agree that Omar’s words were anti-Semitic, the report said.
Omar came under criticism in January for tweets she had made regarding Israel. She then waded deeper into the fevered anti-Semitic swamps in February, tweeting about pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee) buying political influence, plugging into an age-old anti-Semitic trope about Jews, money, and power.
In February, Omar tweeted “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” referring to the $100 bill that features Benjamin Franklin’s likeness. Omar made the reference in regards to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s threat to punish her and her colleague, Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib, (D., Mich.), who had also made anti-Israel remarks and continued to promote Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS)against Israel.
According to CNN, local Minnesota leaders want the congresswoman – the first Somali-American representative in Congress – to understand why her words have caused so much pain.
“We wanted to show her how what she had said was consistent with the statements of anti-Semites and anti-Semitism over time,” Hunegs said. “It’s unfortunate and, almost in the classical sense, tragic because she has the capability of being an important bridge builder.”
Olitzky, a senior rabbi, said that some of his congregants were alarmed at what Omar had said and that he had the opportunity to discuss it with her, according to CNN. “Congresswoman Omar shared with me that she understood our pain and listened to that pain. But then the tweets continued, and the comments continued,” he said.
Both Olitzky and Hunegs said they were approached by local Muslims, including Somalis, interested in supporting their Jewish neighbors, the report continued.
“We can reinforce the good relationships that already exist, because in a sense people are kind of sick and tired of it and they want to move forward and find ways to work together,” Hunegs said.
“(When you are elected,) you’re supposed to bring people together, you’re supposed to create a sense of unity instead of farther dividing them and pitting one group against the other,” Jamal noted, expressing disappointment in the congresswoman on behalf of himself and Somali refugees who had fled to America, CNN reported.
“(When you are elected,) you’re supposed to bring people together, you’re supposed to create a sense of unity instead of farther dividing them and pitting one group against the other,” Jamal said.
Ahmed, for his part, dismissed the claim that Omar was merely criticizing the Israeli government rather than attacking Jews. “When David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan agrees with you, you’re not doing something right.”
“I speak as a friend of Israel and a brother to the Palestinians by faith,” he said, according to CNN. “We believe in Palestinian rights and freedoms, but we will not do it denigrating our Jewish community.”
Ahmed and Jamal conceded that not everyone in the local Somali Muslim community agrees with them regarding Omar’s statements, including Ahmed’s own family, CNN added.
Omar’s office did not respond for comment, the report said.

Capitalism/Socialism

When President Barack Obama was in office, he lied to America about our “Muslim” and “Islamic” heritage.  Now, students in elementary school from grades Kindergarten through twelve, are becoming thoroughly brainwashed with the greatness of socialism.  This political mindset appears to have hijacked the Democratic Party.  Are we to become the United Socialistic States of America?  (USSA)  Heaven forbid.  Socialism’s track record is 100% failure, that only a totally ignorant populace would approve of.

Ilhan Omar’s District Is ‘Terrorist Recruitment Capital Of The US,’ Report Says VIDEO

 

Ilhan Omar’s District Is ‘Terrorist Recruitment Capital Of The US,’ Report Says (VIDEO)
February 18 2019

Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D), is the terrorist recruitment capitol of the United States, according to FBI statistics.
FOX News reports that “more men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.”
“FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined,” Fox News continued. “And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.”
As FOX notes, “the insular ethnic community in Minnesota offers a rich recruiting ground” for Islamic terrorism as the Somali population in the Minneapolis community — which is located in Omar’s district — is nearly 100,000.
“We are very conscious that there may still be fertile ground for that, and that is could re-start at any time,” one federal official told Fox News. “Based on historical experience, we had (an uptick) in 2007 and 2008 going for al-Shabab, then a lull. Then, as ISIS came back, we saw a whole bunch of people no longer headed for Somalia. They were headed for Iraq and Syria. That really caught us off-guard, we didn’t see that coming. It didn’t make sense to us. We understood why kids were going back to Somalia, but going to Syria was another issue.”
Robin Simcox, a terrorism and national security expert at The Heritage Foundation, told FOX News that “Islamist terror groups have been able to recruit from Minnesota” because Minnesota has a large Muslim population compared to other parts of the U.S.”
“However, it is also because there have been small segments of the Somali community there that have struggled to integrate into the U.S. Al-Shabaab and ISIS have exploited this – upon religious, political cultural and identity issues to offer a compelling alternative to Western democracy,” Simcox added.
In 2013, Omar blamed America’s “involvement in other people’s affairs” for an al-Shabab terrorist attack on a Kenyan shopping mall that year which resulted in nearly 70 deaths and 200 wounded. During that interview, Omar laughed and joked as she talked about Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah.
Watch:

Omar, who is a known anti-Semite, has faced recent scrutiny over her past advocacy for a group of men who were accused of trying to join ISIS. In a letter to the judge presiding over the case, Omar wrote:
Honorable Judge Davis,
As you undoubtedly deliberate with great caution the sentencing of nine recently convicted Somali-American men, I bring to your attention the ramifications of sentencing young men who made a consequential mistake to decades in federal prison. Incarcerating 20-year-old men for 30 or 40 years is essentially a life sentence. Society will have no expectations of the to be 50 or 60-year-old released prisoners; it will view them with distrust and revulsion. Such punitive measures not only lack efficacy, they inevitably create an environment in which extremism can flourish, aligning with the presupposition of terrorist recruitment: “Americans do not accept you and continue to trivialize your value. Instead of being a nobody, be a martyr.”
The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion. We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to affect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation. A long-term prison sentence for one who chose violence to combat direct marginalization is a statement that our justice system misunderstands the guilty. A restorative approach to justice assesses the lure of criminality and addresses it.
The desire to commit violence is not inherent to people — it is the consequences of systematic alienation; people seek violent solutions when the process established for enacting change is inaccessible to them. Fueled by disaffection turned to malice, if the guilty were willing to kill and be killed fighting perceived injustice, imagine the consequence of them hearing, “I believe you can be rehabilitated. I want you to become part of my community, and together we will thrive.” We use this form of distributive justice for patients with chemical dependencies; treatment and societal reintegration. The most effective penance is making these men ambassadors of reform.
The restorative approach provides a long-term solution – though the self-declared Islamic State may soon suffer defeat, their radical approach to change-making will continue as it has throughout history – by criminalizing the undergirding construct rather than its predisposed victims. Therein, this ruling can set a precedent and has the potential to be a landmark case in addressing extremism.
Thank you for your careful attention,
Ilhan Omar
State Representative-Elect – MN 60B
Omar has recently come under fire for promoting anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, which has resulted in President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence calling on her to either resign or step down from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

America’s First Muslim City Council Gradually Begins Implementing Sharia Law (VIDEO)

I am glad that I am now a senior citizen as I see our nation slowly plummeting and unraveling; yet I feel remorse for the younger people, as I sense what is coming down the pike.  If the Lord tarries, Sharia Law will continue to make great strides in America, due simply to huge shifts in demographics and population.  Our populace needs 2.3 people per family in order to maintain our country.  We are not even close.  Muslims have huge families, hence they have already claimed the entire West.  Unless the Lord intercedes, our fate as a nation seems sealed, just like Europe.  Our hope?  Revival of course.

America’s First Muslim City Council Gradually Begins Implementing Sharia Law (VIDEO)
February 20, 2019

Hamtramck, Michigan recently became the first town in America with a Muslim-majority city council, and their actions are causing concern among the town’s non-Muslims.
[Mayor] Majewski, whose family emigrated from Poland in the early 20th century, admitted to a few concerns of her own. Business owners within 500 feet of one of Hamtramck’s four mosques can’t obtain a liquor license, she complained, a notable development in a place that flouted Prohibition-era laws by openly operating bars. The restrictions could thwart efforts to create an entertainment hub downtown, said the pro-commerce mayor.
And while Majewski advocated allowing mosques to issue calls to prayer, she understands why some longtime residents are struggling to adjust to the sound that echos through the city’s streets five times each day.
“There’s definitely a strong feeling that Muslims are the other,” she said. “It’s about culture, what kind of place Hamtramck will become. There’s definitely a fear, and to some degree, I share it.”
Saad Almasmari, a 28-year-old from Yemen who became the fourth Muslim elected to the six-member city council this month, doesn’t understand that fear.
Almasmari, the owner of an ice cream company who campaigned on building Hamtramck’s struggling economy and improving the public schools, said he is frustrated that so many residents expect the council’s Muslim members to be biased. He spent months campaigning everywhere in town, knocking on the doors of mosques and churches alike, he said.
“I don’t know why people keep putting religion into politics,” said Almasmari, who received the highest percentage of votes
(22 percent) of any candidate. “When we asked for votes, we didn’t ask what their religion was.”
They may not have asked for the religious views of their voters, but their actions as legislators make their religion more than clear. They’re taking the first steps to solidify their Muslim belief into local law, and no one has the power to stop them.

Pope & Muslim Imam Push For One World Religion ~ Three Comprehensive Articles

Push For One World Religion As Pope & Muslim Imam Sign Interfaith Covenant

Push For One World Religion As Pope & Muslim Imam Sign Interfaith Covenant

A historic interfaith covenant was signed in the Middle East on Monday, and the mainstream media in the United States has been almost entirely silent about it.

Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb is considered to be the most important imam in Sunni Islam, and he arrived at the signing ceremony in Abu Dhabi with Pope Francis “hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood”.

But this wasn’t just a ceremony for Catholics and Muslims. According to a British news source, the signing of this covenant was done “in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths”…

The pope and the grand imam of al-Azhar have signed a historic declaration of fraternity, calling for peace between nations, religions and races, in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths.

Pope Francis, the leader of the world’s Catholics, and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning, arrived at the ceremony in Abu Dhabi hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood.

In other words, there was a concerted effort to make sure that all of the religions of the world were represented at this gathering.

According to the official Vatican website, a tremendous amount of preparation went in to the drafting of this document, and it encourages believers from all religions “to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray” with one another…

The document, signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb, was prepared “with much reflection and prayer”, the Pope said. The one great danger at this moment, he continued, is “destruction, war, hatred between us.” “If we believers are not able to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray, our faith will be defeated”, he said.

The Pope explained that the document “is born of faith in God who is the Father of all and the Father of peace; it condemns all destruction, all terrorism, from the first terrorism in history, that of Cain.”

There is a lot of language about peace in this document, but it goes way beyond just advocating for peace.

Over and over again, the word “God” is used to simultaneously identify Allah and the God of Christianity.

Here is just one example…

We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.

On top of that, the document also boldly declares that “the diversity of religions” that we see in the world was “willed by God”…

Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;

In essence, this is saying that it is the will of God that there are hundreds of different religions in the world and that they are all acceptable in His sight.

We know that the elite want a one world religion, but to see the most important clerics from both Catholicism and Islam make such a dramatic public push for it is absolutely stunning.

We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.
On top of that, the document also boldly declares that “the diversity of religions” that we see in the world was “willed by God”:
Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;
In essence, this is saying that it is the will of God that there are hundreds of different religions in the world and that they are all acceptable in His sight.
We know that the elite want a one-world religion, but to see the most important clerics from both Catholicism and Islam make such a dramatic public push for it is absolutely stunning.
You can find the full text of the covenant that they signed on the official Vatican website. I have also reproduced the entire document below:

Introduction
Faith leads a believer to see in the other a brother or sister to be supported and loved. Through faith in God, who has created the universe, creatures and all human beings (equal on account of his mercy), believers are called to express this human fraternity by safeguarding creation and the entire universe and supporting all persons, especially the poorest and those most in need.

This transcendental value served as the starting point for several meetings characterized by a friendly and fraternal atmosphere where we shared the joys, sorrows and problems of our contemporary world. We did this by considering scientific and technical progress, therapeutic achievements, the digital era, the mass media and communications. We reflected also on the level of poverty, conflict and suffering of so many brothers and sisters in different parts of the world as a consequence of the arms race, social injustice, corruption, inequality, moral decline, terrorism, discrimination, extremism and many other causes.
From our fraternal and open discussions, and from the meeting that expressed profound hope in a bright future for all human beings, the idea of this document on Human Fraternity was conceived. It is a text that has been given honest and serious thought so as to be a joint declaration of good and heartfelt aspirations. It is a document that invites all persons who have faith in God and faith in human fraternity to unite and work together so that it may serve as a guide for future generations to advance a culture of mutual respect in the awareness of the great divine grace that makes all human beings brothers and sisters.

Document
In the name of God who has created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity, and who has called them to live together as brothers and sisters, to fill the earth and make known the values of goodness, love and peace;
In the name of innocent human life that God has forbidden to kill, affirming that whoever kills a person is like one who kills the whole of humanity, and that whoever saves a person is like one who saves the whole of humanity;
In the name of the poor, the destitute, the marginalized and those most in need whom God has commanded us to help as a duty required of all persons, especially the wealthy and of means;
In the name of orphans, widows, refugees and those exiled from their homes and their countries; in the name of all victims of wars, persecution and injustice; in the name of the weak, those who live in fear, prisoners of war and those tortured in any part of the world, without distinction;
In the name of peoples who have lost their security, peace and the possibility of living together, becoming victims of destruction, calamity and war;
In the name of human fraternity that embraces all human beings, unites them and renders them equal;
In the name of this fraternity torn apart by policies of extremism and division, by systems of unrestrained profit or by hateful ideological tendencies that manipulate the actions and the future of men and women;
In the name of freedom, that God has given to all human beings creating them free and distinguishing them by this gift;
In the name of justice and mercy, the foundations of prosperity and the cornerstone of faith;
In the name of all persons of good will present in every part of the world;
In the name of God and of everything stated thus far, Al-Azhar al-Sharif and the Muslims of the East and West, together with the Catholic Church and the Catholics of the East and West, declare the adoption of a culture of dialogue as the path, mutual cooperation as the code of conduct, reciprocal understanding as the method and standard.
We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.

Pope Francis, Leading Imam Sign Covenant Pushing One-World Religion

Pope Francis, Leading Imam Sign Covenant Pushing One-World Religion
February 15 2019

A historic interfaith covenant was signed in the Middle East on Monday, February 4th, and the mainstream media in the United States has been almost entirely silent about it. Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb is considered to be the most important imam in Sunni Islam, and he arrived at the signing ceremony in Abu Dhabi with Pope Francis “hand in hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood.” But this wasn’t just a ceremony for Catholics and Muslims. According to a British news source, the signing of this covenant was done “in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths”:
The pope and the grand imam of al-Azhar have signed a historic declaration of fraternity, calling for peace between nations, religions and races, in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths.
Pope Francis, the leader of the world’s Catholics, and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning, arrived at the ceremony in Abu Dhabi hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood.
In other words, there was a concerted effort to make sure that all of the religions of the world were represented at this gathering.
According to the official Vatican website, a tremendous amount of preparation went into the drafting of this document, and it encourages believers from all religions “to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another and even pray” with one another:
The document, signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb, was prepared “with much reflection and prayer”, the Pope said. The one great danger at this moment, he continued, is “destruction, war, hatred between us.”
“If we believers are not able to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray, our faith will be defeated,” he said. The Pope explained that the document “is born of faith in God who is the Father of all and the Father of peace; it condemns all destruction, all terrorism, from the first terrorism in history, that of Cain.”
There is a lot of language about peace in this document, but it goes way beyond just advocating for peace.
Over and over again, the word “God” is used to simultaneously identify Allah and the God of Christianity. Here is just one example…
We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.
On top of that, the document also boldly declares that “the diversity of religions” that we see in the world was “willed by God”:
Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;

From our fraternal and open discussions, and from the meeting that expressed profound hope in a bright future for all human beings, the idea of this document on Human Fraternity was conceived. It is a text that has been given honest and serious thought so as to be a joint declaration of good and heartfelt aspirations. It is a document that invites all persons who have faith in God and faith in human fraternity to unite and work together so that it may serve as a guide for future generations to advance a culture of mutual respect in the awareness of the great divine grace that makes all human beings brothers and sisters.
Document
In the name of God who has created all human beings equal in rights, duties and dignity, and who has called them to live together as brothers and sisters, to fill the earth and make known the values of goodness, love and peace;
In the name of innocent human life that God has forbidden to kill, affirming that whoever kills a person is like one who kills the whole of humanity and that whoever saves a person is like one who saves the whole of humanity;

In the name of peoples who have lost their security, peace and the possibility of living together, becoming victims of destruction, calamity, and war;
In the name of human fraternity that embraces all human beings, unites them and renders them equal;
In the name of this fraternity torn apart by policies of extremism and division, by systems of unrestrained profit or by hateful ideological tendencies that manipulate the actions and the future of men and women;
In the name of freedom, that God has given to all human beings creating them free and distinguishing them by this gift;
In the name of justice and mercy, the foundations of prosperity and the cornerstone of faith;
In the name of all persons of good will present in every part of the world;
In the name of God and of everything stated thus far, Al-Azhar al-Sharif and the Muslims of the East and West, together with the Catholic Church and the Catholics of the East and West, declare the adoption of a culture of dialogue as the path, mutual cooperation as the code of conduct, reciprocal understanding as the method and standard.
We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.
We call upon intellectuals, philosophers, religious figures, artists, media professionals and men and women of culture in every part of the world, to rediscover the values of peace, justice, goodness, beauty, human fraternity and coexistence in order to confirm the importance of these values as anchors of salvation for all, and to promote them everywhere.
This declaration, setting out from a profound consideration of our contemporary reality, valuing its successes and in solidarity with its suffering, disasters and calamities, believes firmly that among the most important causes of the crises of the modern world are a desensitized human conscience, a distancing from religious values and a prevailing individualism accompanied by materialistic philosophies that deify the human person and introduce worldly and material values in place of supreme and transcendental principles.
While recognizing the positive steps taken by our modern civilization in the fields of science, technology, medicine, industry and welfare, especially in developed countries, we wish to emphasize that, associated with such historic advancements, great and valued as they are, there exists both a moral deterioration that influences international action and a weakening of spiritual values and responsibility. All this contributes to a general feeling of frustration, isolation and desperation leading many to fall either into a vortex of atheistic, agnostic or religious extremism, or into blind and fanatic extremism, which ultimately encourage forms of dependency and individual or collective self-destruction.
History shows that religious extremism, national extremism and also intolerance have produced in the world, be it in the East or West, what might be referred to as signs of a “third world war being fought piecemeal”. In several parts of the world and in many tragic circumstances these signs have begun to be painfully apparent, as in those situations where the precise number of victims, widows and orphans is unknown. We see, in addition, other regions preparing to become theaters of new conflicts, with outbreaks of tension and a build-up of arms and ammunition, and all this in a global context overshadowed by uncertainty, disillusionment, fear of the future, and controlled by narrow-minded economic interests.
We likewise affirm that major political crises, situations of injustice and lack of equitable distribution of natural resources—which only a rich minority benefit from, to the detriment of the majority of the peoples of the earth—have generated, and continue to generate, vast numbers of poor, infirm and deceased persons. This leads to catastrophic crises that various countries have fallen victim to despite their natural resources and the resourcefulness of young people which characterize these nations. In the face of such crises that result in the deaths of millions of children—wasted away from poverty and hunger—there is an unacceptable silence on the international level.
It is clear in this context how the family as the fundamental nucleus of society and humanity is essential in bringing children into the world, raising them, educating them, and providing them with a solid moral formation and domestic security. To attack the institution of the family, to regard it with contempt or to doubt its important role, is one of the most threatening evils of our era.
We affirm also the importance of awakening religious awareness and the need to revive this awareness in the hearts of new generations through sound education and an adherence to moral values and upright religious teachings. In this way we can confront tendencies that are individualistic, selfish, conflicting and also address radicalism and blind extremism in all its forms and expressions.
The first and most important aim of religions is to believe in God, to honor Him and to invite all men and women to believe that this universe depends on a God who governs it. He is the Creator who has formed us with His divine wisdom and has granted us the gift of life to protect it. It is a gift that no one has the right to take away, threaten or manipulate to suit oneself. Indeed, everyone must safeguard this gift of life from its beginning up to its natural end. We, therefore, condemn all those practices that are a threat to life such as genocide, acts of terrorism, forced displacement, human trafficking, abortion and euthanasia. We likewise condemn the policies that promote these practices.
Moreover, we resolutely declare that religions must never incite war, hateful attitudes, hostility and extremism, nor must they incite violence or the shedding of blood. These tragic realities are the consequence of a deviation from religious teachings. They result from a political manipulation of religions and from interpretations made by religious groups who, in the course of history, have taken advantage of the power of religious sentiment in the hearts of men and women in order to make them act in a way that has nothing to do with the truth of religion. This is done for the purpose of achieving objectives that are political, economic, worldly and short-sighted. We thus call upon all concerned to stop using religions to incite hatred, violence, extremism and blind fanaticism, and to refrain from using the name of God to justify acts of murder, exile, terrorism and oppression. We ask this on the basis of our common belief in God, who did not create men and women to be killed or to fight one another, nor to be tortured or humiliated in their lives and circumstances. God, the Almighty, has no need to be defended by anyone and does not want His name to be used to terrorize people.
This document, in accordance with previous international documents that have emphasized the importance of the role of religions in the construction of world peace, upholds the following:
– The firm conviction that authentic teachings of religions invite us to remain rooted in the values of peace; to defend the values of mutual understanding, human fraternity and harmonious coexistence; to re-establish wisdom, justice and love; and to reawaken religious awareness among young people so that future generations may be protected from the realm of materialistic thinking and from dangerous policies of unbridled greed and indifference that are based on the law of force and not on the force of law;
– Freedom is a right of every person; each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;
– Justice based on mercy is the path to follow in order to achieve a dignified life to which every human being has a right;
– Dialogue, understanding and the widespread promotion of a culture of tolerance, acceptance of others and of living together peacefully would contribute significantly to reducing many economic, social, political and environmental problems that weigh so heavily on a large part of humanity;
– Dialogue among believers means coming together in the vast space of spiritual, human and shared social values and, from here, transmitting the highest moral virtues that religions aim for. It also means avoiding unproductive discussions;
– The protection of places of worship—synagogues, churches and mosques—is a duty guaranteed by religions, human values, laws and international agreements. Every attempt to attack places of worship or threaten them by violent assaults, bombings or destruction, is a deviation from the teachings of religions as well as a clear violation of international law;
– Terrorism is deplorable and threatens the security of people, be they in the East or the West, the North or the South, and disseminates panic, terror and pessimism, but this is not due to religion, even when terrorists instrumentalize it. It is due, rather, to an accumulation of incorrect interpretations of religious texts and to policies linked to hunger, poverty, injustice, oppression and pride. This is why it is so necessary to stop supporting terrorist movements fueled by financing, the provision of weapons and strategy and by attempts to justify these movements even using the media. All these must be regarded as international crimes that threaten security and world peace. Such terrorism must be condemned in all its forms and expressions;
– The concept of “citizenship” is based on the equality of rights and duties, under which all enjoy justice. It is, therefore, crucial to establish in our societies the concept of “full citizenship” and reject the discriminatory use of the term “minorities,” which engenders feelings of isolation and inferiority. Its misuse paves the way for hostility and discord; it undoes any successes and takes away the religious and civil rights of some citizens who are thus discriminated against;
– Good relations between East and West are indisputably necessary for both. They must not be neglected, so that each can be enriched by the other’s culture through fruitful exchange and dialogue. The West can discover in the East remedies for those spiritual and religious maladies that are caused by a prevailing materialism. And the East can find in the West many elements that can help free it from weakness, division, conflict and scientific, technical and cultural decline. It is important to pay attention to religious, cultural and historical differences that are a vital component in shaping the character, culture and civilization of the East. It is likewise important to reinforce the bond of fundamental human rights in order to help ensure a dignified life for all the men and women of East and West, avoiding the politics of double standards;
– It is an essential requirement to recognize the right of women to education and employment, and to recognize their freedom to exercise their own political rights. Moreover, efforts must be made to free women from historical and social conditioning that runs contrary to the principles of their faith and dignity. It is also necessary to protect women from sexual exploitation and from being treated as merchandise or objects of pleasure or financial gain. Accordingly, an end must be brought to all those inhuman and vulgar practices that denigrate the dignity of women. Efforts must be made to modify those laws that prevent women from fully enjoying their rights;
– The protection of the fundamental rights of children to grow up in a family environment, to receive nutrition, education and support, are duties of the family and society. Such duties must be guaranteed and protected so that they are not overlooked or denied to any child in any part of the world. All those practices that violate the dignity and rights of children must be denounced. It is equally important to be vigilant against the dangers that they are exposed to, particularly in the digital world, and to consider as a crime the trafficking of their innocence and all violations of their youth;
– The protection of the rights of the elderly, the weak, the disabled and the oppressed is a religious and social obligation that must be guaranteed and defended through strict legislation and the implementation of the relevant international agreements.
To this end, by mutual cooperation, the Catholic Church and Al-Azhar announce and pledge to convey this document to authorities, influential leaders, persons of religion all over the world, appropriate regional and international organizations, organizations within civil society, religious institutions and leading thinkers. They further pledge to make known the principles contained in this declaration at all regional and international levels, while requesting that these principles be translated into policies, decisions, legislative texts, courses of study and materials to be circulated.
Al-Azhar and the Catholic Church ask that this document become the object of research and reflection in all schools, universities and institutes of formation, thus helping to educate new generations to bring goodness and peace to others, and to be defenders everywhere of the rights of the oppressed and of the least of our brothers and sisters.
In conclusion, our aspiration is that:
—this declaration may constitute an invitation to reconciliation and fraternity among all believers, indeed among believers and non-believers, and among all people of good will.
—this declaration may be an appeal to every upright conscience that rejects deplorable violence and blind extremism, an appeal to those who cherish the values of tolerance and fraternity that are promoted and encouraged by religions.
—this declaration may be a witness to the greatness of faith in God that unites divided hearts and elevates the human soul.
—this declaration may be a sign of the closeness between East and West, between North and South, and between all who believe that God has created us to understand one another, cooperate with one another and live as brothers and sisters who love one another.
This is what we hope and seek to achieve with the aim of finding a universal peace that all can enjoy in this life.

Ilhan Abdullahi Omar (born October 4, 1981) is a Somali-American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district since 2019….

…….this freshman congresswoman has already caused more of a firestorm and ruckus in congress than anyone in memory.  She is clearly anti Semitic, anti Christian (making derogatory comments about the faith of Vice President Michael Pence), anti American, and very brazen and arrogant for a newcomer.  She is wasting little time laying out her radical left Democratic agenda.  She is most importantly a precursor of things to come, as multiculturalism in America opens its doors to the Muslim faith.  Islam has already rewritten the culture and religion Europe, and is now making inroads in America.  Our nation was built upon the Judeo Christian ethic, but the radical left and Islam desire to change this.  We have been blessed not to have this religion of Islam within our nation for over two hundred years.  Remember how after 9/11/2001, Franklin Graham called Islam an evil religion?  Following is a scripture that describes the nefarious history of the religion of Islam:

Genesis 16:12 New International Version (NIV)
“He will be a wild donkey of a man;
his hand will be against everyone
and everyone’s hand against him,
and he will live in hostility
toward[a] all his brothers.”

Sharia Law May Be Headed to America (VIDEO)
February 13 2019

Sharia Law goes against America and American values. And that is why New Yorkers are worried about the new “Muslim Community Patrol.”

Sharia Law in America?

Can we really let something as brutal as Sharia Law into America? These Muslim patrols are harassing people. Europe has seen it. And now America will as well. New Yorkers in Brooklyn have seen Muslim Community Patrol cars. They look exactly like police cars, and the members of this patrol group even dress like police officers. Why is this allowed?

Americans Fear What’s to Come

Americans are nervous that these patrols are just to enforce Sharia Law, which seems to be the case. The examples given in the video below in other parts of the world show what the goal of this patrol is. Americans should not need to live in fear. These Muslims are trying to impose a law on Americans that is oppressive and goes against people’s freedoms. And there have been other situations in New York that make New York feel like Muslims are crossing lines and going against American law.
What is America going to become if this is not stopped now? The Muslim Community Patrol is planning to expand to cover the entire city of New York. And they must be stopped, before it is too late.

It’s Time Americans Learn about Islam

Islam includes an important doctrine called HIJRA. Hijra is Jihad by migration, a political tactic used to overtake and conquer Kafir (non-Muslim) countries. This is exactly what the massive Muslim immigration is about to Western countries. And this is the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood organizations like CAIR, Muslim Student Organizations and the Muslim representatives in Congress. This helps explain the motives of newly elected Representatives @RepRashida and @IlhanMN – who are Islamic, anarchist, anti-Israel, anti-American, and PRO-JIHAD.

**********************************

This is totally unconstitutional – allowing a police force in Brooklyn, representing one religion that had absolutely NOTHING to do with the founding and history of our nation.  For Americans to allow this nonsense will be to our own detriment.  Muslims attempt to take over wherever they settle.  Where Muslims are in the minority, they scream for minority rights.  Wherever Muslims are in the majority, there are no minority rights.  Make no mistake:  The goal of Islam is to take over the entire world.  The only choice given for others is to convert or die.  This has been their mantra from their inception under Mohammed.   Maranatha, Pastor Steve  <><

Russell Moore Silent on Trump’s Defense of the Unborn

I cannot stand Russell Moore, an overt Hillary Clinton supporter and Donald Trump despiser.  This one leader has done as much damage to the Southern Baptist Convention, as former Director James Comey has done to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  I am ashamed to be affiliated with him, being in the same denomination as this wolf in sheepskin.  The following article highlights more of his shenanigans, and removes all doubt as to his motives.  Blessings, Pastor Steve  <><

Russell Moore Silent on Trump’s Defense of the Unborn
by News Division · Published February 6, 2019 · Updated February 6, 2019

Russell Moore attacked Donald Trump so vehemently and relentlessly during the presidential primary (Moore had the entire ERLC turned into a shameless Rubio PAC), that Trump referred to him as a “very nasty guy with no heart.” Perhaps Trump knew that Moore, even then, was a financial partner of George Soros. Regardless, it seems that Moore will do whatever it takes not to affirm President Trump, even when he makes the most pro-life comments in any State of the Union speech in history.
Moore, a former Democratic staffer, serves on the Evangelical Immigration Table, which is an organization bought, paid for, and founded by George Soros and is an invention of Soros’ National Immigration Forum. Both are a part of Soros’ Open Societies Foundation, a globalist organization run by the billionaire whose ambition it is to dismantle American sovereignty and the nation-state.

Moore’s official job, other than a leftist provocateur, is being the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention. Since his tenure there, he has had the ERLC sign an animal rights declaration with the Humane Society, sign an amicus brief with Muslims to help get a Mosque built in New Jersey, hosted the MLK50 social justice conference named in honor of the bi-sexual sex trafficker, and spent years attacking the POTUS. Most importantly, Moore has spent his time at the ERLC advocating for open borders, which would erase American national sovereignty and put all of our dearest civil liberties (including the freedom of religion) in great jeopardy.

The SBC needs a whole other ERLC just to protect it from the encroachments of liberty and advance of progressivism caused by the current ERLC.
The POTUS gave comments last night that are among the strongest ever recorded in defense of the unborn, at least from a State of the Union speech. Moore has stood with Nancy Pelosi twice in recent weeks in calling for open borders and an end to the government shutdown, and it seems he stands with her again, unwilling to congratulate the president for his defense of unborn children.
In fact, Russell Moore’s comments about Trump’s defense of the unborn has been captured on camera and is pictured below.

HT Cody Libolt

I jest.

Moore has been uncharacterstically silent. While evangelicals across the country are applauding Trump’s words, Moore has not tweeted, blogged, or made any kind of post in relation to the president’s incredible comments.
Instead, the ERLC took the time to post an article covering a talk at “Evangelicals for Life.” The talk didn’t have anything to do with abortion, however, and included words from Thabiti Anyabwile about criminal justice reform. As we’ve demonstrated in previous posts, Russell Moore is using the term “pro-life” to refer to topics like penal reform and illegal immigration instead of abortion.
If Russel Moore can’t bring himself to speak positive words about the POTUS when he’s able, it should be clear that Moore is in opposition to Trump’s agenda. And Trump’s agenda is very, very good for evangelicalism.
Whose side is Moore on? Apparently it’s not the side of the unborn for this former Democratic staffer.
