MOSQUE ‘INVASION’ DECIMATING CHURCHES ACROSS FRANCE

Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris

WASHINGTON – Many Muslim immigrants express a sentiment of entitlement, believing they one day will replace the natives and the land in which they are strangers will come under the authority of Islamic law.

It’s already happening in France, according to a report published by the Gatestone Institute by Giuliu Meotti, cultural editor for Il Folgio.

He says, in the last 30 years, more mosques and Muslim prayer centers “have been built in France than all the Catholic churches built in the last century.”

At the same time, Christian churches are being bulldozed.

Meotti notes that France has laws protecting old trees, but “the state is free to flatten old Christian churches” and “the vacuums created in the French landscape are already being filled by the booming mosques.”

“House of War: Islam’s Jihad Against the World” conveys what the West needs to know about Islam and the violent, expansionist ideology that seeks the subjugation and destruction of other faiths, cultures and systems of government

France is able to demolish old churches because the government appropriated all church property and the cost of maintaining them in 1907, the Gatestone Institute report said.

But local officials are reluctant to spend money on the buildings, so they are being turned in activity centers, offices, apartments and even mosques. Or, they simply are being demolished.

France could lose 5,000 to 10,000 religious buildings by 2030, according to a report from the Observatory of Religious Heritage.

Seven churches were demolished in France in 2016 alone.

The same year, Father Jacques Hamel died at the hands of ISIS-allied terrorists at the foot of the altar while celebrating morning Mass in Normandy, France. He had served as a priest for almost six decades.

But just weeks after Hamel’s death, French police interrupted a Mass at the Church of Santa Rita, dragging priests out of the cathedral by their legs, to prepare for the church’s demolishment.

It’s now a parking lot.

See an example of the destruction of a church:

Last month, a wrecking crew bulldozed the Saint-Nicaise Church’s presbytery after the local authorities claimed the weight of its bells were a safety hazard.

A few days later, the Chapel of Saint Martin in Sablé-sur-Sarthe, the famed cathedral that was built in 1880-1886, was replaced with a parking lot.

Some 20 churches are reportedly sold and converted in France every year, the report said.

And according to Patrimoine-en-blog, a website that provides regular inventory of demolished churches, 26 churches were put up for sale in 2016 and 12 churches in 2015.

Meanwhile, nearly indiscriminate construction of mosques is being allowed, the report said, even subsidized.

“The municipality of Evreux voted for the provision of 5,000 square meters of land, for one symbolic euro, for the project of the Union of the Muslim faith,” a report said.

In fact, journalist Elizabeth Schemia details how French mayors have now become “builders of mosques.”

Meotti said that recently police shot a Muslim outside a cathedral after he tried to attack them with a hammer. And there was another terror cell that was foiled in a planned attack on Notre Dame.

“France’s most famous Catholic house of worship is a prime target for the jihadists. At the same time, France has been dismissing the religious and cultural heritage of France’s Catholic patrimony, which, in a time of religious clashes and revival, should instead be protected as treasures and sources of strength,” he said.

Officials note France has the second largest Muslim population in Europe after Germany. Pew Research estimated in 2016 that France had a Muslim population of 4.71 million, comprising 7.5 percent of the French population.

In 2030, the Muslim population of France will be 10.3 percent and in Britain 8.2 percent, according to Pew.

Citing a report by the magazine Valeurs Actuelles, Meotti pointed out that nearly two new mosques are developed per week as the Muslim population rapidly grows in France.

“Nearly 2,400 mosques today, compared to 1,500 in 2003, is the most visible sign of the rapid growth of Islam in France, a consequence of a population of immigrant origin and the process of strong re-Islamization,” Valeurs Actuelles noted in an article warning about Islamic “invasion.”

Earlier this month, the archbishop of Strasbourg warned that France’s large Muslim population combined with its high birth rate and migration will soon lead to the country’s cultural demise.

“Muslim believers know very well that their birth rate is such that today, they call it … the Great Replacement,” the archbishop told Valeurs Actuelles. “They tell you in a very calm, very positive way that, ‘One day, all this, it will be ours.’”

Concluded Meotti: “Cowardly French authorities would never treat Islam as they are now treating Christianity. Marine Le Pen pointedly asked: ‘What if we built parking lots on top of Salafist mosques, instead of our churches?’”

Christian pastor in Bible Belt admits personally worshiping Allah

Muslim deity takes over church as leaders claim to honor ‘same god’
This former Pentecostal church in Smithfield, N.C., has had its crosses removed and converted to a mosque on Saturday, May 13, 2017

This former Pentecostal church in Smithfield, North Carolina, has had its crosses removed and converted to a mosque on May 13, 2017

Crosses have been removed from the former church’s facade and steeple, and mosque leader Ali Muhammad turned them over to the group of pastors.

“What they were attempting to do is honor our tradition and so they wanted to turn the crosses over to us,” said the Rev. Jim Melnyk, pastor of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Smithfield, a small town in Johnston County about 45 minutes south of Raleigh. “They were reaching out to us, and we were reaching out to them.”

Melnyk said he was joined by pastors from the United Methodist Church, United Church of Christ and three different Baptist congregations at Saturday’s ceremony, which marked the official conversion of a former Pentecostal church into a mosque. One lay person from the local Presbyterian Church was also present for the “celebration.”

Melnyk said the mosque had reached out to the local churches through an interfaith group in Raleigh and was hoping to strike a welcoming and respectful tone for the two faiths.

Melnyk said Christianity and Islam “share common origins and scriptures” and that he felt it was the right thing to do to participate in the mosque opening as a show of respect for Islam, a fellow monotheistic faith.

“Christians, Jews and Muslims are all people of the book, and we all claim what the Hebrew Scriptures call the Abrahamic faith,” Melnyk told WND. “We call it the Old Testament, and Muslims also claim the Bible.”

“All of us humans are imperfect. We all struggle and we all look to the divine for inspiration, and we don’t always get it right,” he said.Islam teaches the Bible was corrupted by Jews and Christians and that the Quran was the final, perfected revelation of Allah as given by the Angel Gabriel to the prophet Muhammad. Melnyk said he is aware of these teachings.

But, he said despite being “imperfect,” the Islamic faith worships the “same god” as Christianity and Judaism.

Melnyk said he has personally worshiped Allah with Muslims during interfaith gatherings in Raleigh.

Proof that Allah is the same as God the Father in Christianity is that Coptic and Palestinian Christians use the Arabic word “Allah” for God, he said.

The Quran teaches that Jesus was not the Son of God and did not die on a cross to save humanity from sin. In fact, the Quran teaches Jesus faked his death on the cross, when one of his followers died in his place. In the mainstream of Islamic doctrine, Jesus will return in the last days to “break the crosses” and convert the world’s Christians to Islam, by force if necessary.

But Melnyk said he would not be deterred by any of these doctrinal differences.

“We run a danger when we paint any faith tradition with a broad brush,” he said. “I don’t know that faking his death on a cross is a belief held by everyone in Islam. I do know they see Jesus very differently than we do; they see him as a prophet, not the Son of God. And like other monotheistic faiths, they are challenged by the doctrine of the Trinity. I would challenge any Christian theologian to define the mystery of what we call the Trinity. It’s just a doctrine that is in many ways incomprehensible. We all struggle with it.

“Obviously I’m a Christian, and I would not live comfortably within the full teachings of Islam, but I can recognize where we share teachings, and recognize the call to treat one another mercifully, and as the one God treats us mercifully, and that translates equally into Christianity as well as it does Islam.”

The mosque purchased the former church building on four acres for $230,000.

Not all Christians are buying the interfaith sentiments expressed by Melnyk and the other pastors who participated in the mosque conversion ceremony.

“Similar origins?” asks an incredulous Ralph Sidway, author of the book “Facing Islam” and a blog by the same name. “Common origins and scriptures? Dhimmitude and ignorance have kissed each other.”

“This pathetic, deceived ‘pastor’ should be severely reprimanded by his bishop, if not defrocked and excommunicated for deceiving his flock and denying Christ in such a blatant manner,” Sidway, who is Orthodox Christian, writes in his blog. “Read my book ‘Facing Islam’ for a clear explanation of why the ‘Same God Heresy’ (which this pastor Jim Melnyk undoubtedly follows) presents a ‘different gospel,’ a ‘different Jesus’ and a ‘different Spirit’ (cf. Galatians 1:6-8 and 2 Corinthians 11:3-4).”

A growing Muslim community in rural eastern North Carolina

Ali Mohammed, born in Venezuela to Palestinian parents, told the News & Observer he arrived in Smithfield 20 years ago and is now president of the local Islamic organization that is opening the new mosque. At that time, the local Muslim community consisted of three or four families. It has grown steadily since, and he expects the mosque membership to be around 60.

“Part of it is destiny; it’s the will of God that we’re here and we’ve done well,” Mohammad told the N&O.

“We’re Americans,” Mohammad added. “This is my land, this is my right as an American. If a Christian or a Jew or any other culture has the right to have some kind of community center, why not us? … My faith is peaceful. It teaches us to love our neighbor and be friendly with everyone. That’s what religion teaches us.”

As a historian of Islam and a Christian, Timothy Furnish told WND he can see two sides to this touchy issue, even though the Raleigh newspaper only covered the one side that is politically correct.

“Christians are to be welcoming to strangers in a strange land and we are called on to love all, equally. However, these pastors, especially the Episcopal priest – unsurprisingly, knowing the ECUSA’s obsession with ‘open-mindedness’ and ecumenism – are being kind as doves but forgetting the wise as serpents part of Christ’s instructions in Matthew 10:16,”

Sam Rohrer, president and founder of the American Pastors Network, said there are many lessons to be drawn from the North Carolina mosque conversion.

“The logical question should be this: What would the Bible say about this? What does the Bible say about bidding God-speed to those who oppose the Bible and even more so to those who teach the submission or death to all those who refuse to bow the knee to Allah and Muhammad?” Rohrer told WND. “The Bible is clear.”

A sign of submission?

Turning over a former church to be made into a mosque is, historically and theologically, seen by Muslims as proof that their religion is superior to Christianity and, in fact, as part of their destiny as adherents of Islam, Furnish said.

The Middle East is full of churches and synagogues turned into Islamic sites, such as the Umayyad in Damascus, the Ibn Tulun in Cairo and the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. In Hebron and on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, Muslim conquerors built their sites atop the Jewish ones.

Likewise, in post-Christian Europe, hundreds of churches and synagogues have been converted to mosques in recent years. But the phenomenon is only just beginning in the U.S.

In 2010, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Syracuse Landmark Preservation Board agreed to a plan to convert the landmark Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Syracuse, New York, into a mosque.

Mohammad, the mosque leader in Smithfield, said Saturday’s service would feature readings from the Quran and the Bible and remarks from members of both faiths.

“This imam may mouth soothing words about all just getting along, but the symbolism of Islam triumphant is just being reinforced,” Furnish said. “Most disturbing is a joint Christian-Muslim ‘service,’ which includes readings from the Bible and Quran. Any Christian priest or pastor who participates in such is deluded.”

Furnish said he doubts the joint “service” included any of the passages of the Quran such as Sura IV:171, which denies and condemns the Trinity. Or Sura IV:157, which denies that Christ died on the cross.

“We Christians in America can be welcoming to Muslims without going overboard and pretending that our faith and Islam are virtually the same – or that both are equally valid paths to salvation,” he said.

But Melnyk said he is not concerned about any backlash from the joint service or his accommodating remarks about Islam as equally valid with Christianity.

“Christianity is meant to be hard, to challenge you to go into the tough places. I see this as a very positive thing, and if anyone is hurt or offended by it I challenge them to read the gospels a little more closely.

“My job is not to judge whether another faith tradition is right or wrong but to live as well as I can within the faith tradition I belong, and for that I’m a Christian,” he added. “The reality is, I can only judge by the folks I have come to know in Johnston County and in Raleigh, where we have come together in union and we have not proselytized one another and, in fact, we have had meaningful worship together.”


Democrats caught inciting anti-police riots in St. Louis

The next protest in response to the is scheduled to begin at 5:00 pm at Shaw Park tonight, Wednesday 9/20.

The St. Louis Young Democrats are working hand-in-hand with Black Lives Matter to organize protests in the city, now entering their sixth night, and the mayor says she is “listening.”

The Young Democrats tweeted Wednesday at about 12:20 p.m. that the next “protest” in response to the not-guilty verdict in the Jason Stockley trial was planned for Wednesday evening, instructing rioters where to show up and at what time, hashtagging #Black Lives Matter on the tweet.

While the Young Democrats can claim they are calling for peaceful protests, that claim is dubious at best, given their connections with Black Lives Matter, a known radical group that espouses violence and has been seen on video kicking in storefront windows, spraying unknown chemicals and throwing rocks at police.

More than a dozen police officers have been reported injured, and tens of thousands of dollars in damage has been caused to local businesses that had nothing to do with the Stockley verdict.

Now it comes to light that the Young Democrats are organizing the riots, which they call protests.

They are ostensibly protesting the shooting of Anthony Lamar Smith, who had been convicted of dealing marijuana, was out on parole and had heroin in his car at the time of his encounter with officer Jason Stockley in late 2011. Stockley shot Smith, claiming he rammed into him with his vehicle. The officer was acquitted of murder charges Sept. 15, touching off five nights of violent protests.

If the St. Louis Young Democrats were really wanting peaceful protests, would they be inviting Black Lives Matter to these rallies?

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson former labor union agitator who found Christ and now runs a Christian ministry in Los Angeles reaching out to young men on the street.

“I’m not surprised that we’re in for another night of riots because I’ve heard the mayor justifying the violence in her public statements,” said Peterson, who also hosts a radio show in L.A., writes a hugely popular weekly column for WND and authored the recent book “The Antidote: Healing American from the Poison of Hate, Blame and Victimhood.”

She took heat from some citizens for a tweet in which she appeared to be mocking residents who felt compelled to “drive into a protest.”Peterson is referring to Democrat Mayor Lyda Krewson,

St. Louis' Democrat Mayor Lyda Krewson

who was elected to her first term in April but served on the St. Louis City Council for the previous 20 years. As a councilwoman, she championed laws banning concealed carry of handguns and smoking in the city.

That elicited backlash from city residents who wanted to see tougher police action against protesters disrupting traffic.

“Instead of encouraging the police to arrest these people and put them under the jailhouse, she is justifying the anger and destruction these people are causing and to think these protesters are destroying people’s property over a drug dealer, who was out on parole and was caught trying to sell drugs and had rammed his vehicle into police and he ended up dead,” Peterson said.

“So instead of telling the black community that this is not what you want your children to grow up and be like, they are encouraging more of the same thuggish behavior,” Peterson said. “This is vile, and it’s out of control. There is another agenda going on, and it’s not about black lives.”

That agenda is to cause as much chaos, violence, bitterness and destruction as possible, he said, inciting anger that is already reaching the boiling point.

“Anthony Lamar Smith wasn’t some innocent, good black man walking down the road,” Peterson said.

Krewson had her own home spray-painted by protesters a couple of nights ago.

“And while at the same time the mayor is defending these people, they went and spray-painted her house red. She’s still defending them, afraid to stand up to these radical, evil Black Lives Matter folks and allowing them to go out of control now,” Peterson said.

The involvement of the Young Democrats with BLM goes back to the first night of rioting in the beleaguered city.

On Friday, Sept. 15, the Young Democrats tweeted:

And then this, which included the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter:

On Sept. 16, the Young Democrats tweeted the details for another protest:

That was followed up the same day with another tweet that included promotion of more protest times and places, with the Marxist fist logo:

Then, last night, the organization tweeted that a scheduled town-hall meeting by Mayor Krewson had been canceled because, as the mayor stated, the town halls “are happening in the streets. We are listening.”

Tweet from St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson:

In a two-page statement Tuesday, the mayor said that, while violence will not be tolerated, she is “listening” to the protesters and their demands. The problem, as the mayor sees it, is not just the Stockley case or even police in general, but years of what she called “institutional racism” in cities like St. Louis.

The “root cause” of the city’s racial angst is “a legacy of policies that disproportionately impact people along racial and economic lines. … This is institutional racism,” she said in the statement, adding on her Twitter page that St. Louis has a chance to “lead the way” in providing more equitable police service.

She concluded by saying her administration is “working to expedite existing plans to increase equity.”

The bottom line, according to Peterson’s read, is that the mayor is condemning violence on the one hand while encouraging it on the other.

“That’s a ridiculous statement. Black Americans are not suffering from institutional racism but from the destruction of black families due to black anger, which has led to a crisis of moral character,” Peterson said. “It has nothing to do with racism at all.”

Peterson said if he were advising the mayor, he would challenge her to speak with the force of moral clarity.

“It’s either right or wrong what is going on in those streets. Good or evil,” he said. “There is no moral clarity to that statement she put out.

“On the one hand, she says we’re not going to tolerate violence. But then, on the other, she is not only tolerating it but encouraging it. They need to arrest these folks immediately. This woman is talking out of both sides of her mouth. She is afraid to stand up to these people, and she is supporting them because she is a liberal Democrat, and that’s what liberal Democrats do.”

By blaming her own city for “institutional racism,” the mayor is essentially providing code words to excuse violent reactions on the streets.

If this continues to happen in U.S. cities, “It’s over for America,” Peterson said.

“Especially decent folks, they will end up having to leave the urban areas, because they will see things are spinning out of control; the inmates are running the insane asylums,” he said. “You can never satisfy an angry people. The black Americans are angry, so appeasement is not going to do pacify them.”

The only recipe for peace is that black leaders will step up and encourage forgiveness and a release of anger, he said.

But that’s not what’s happening.

On Sunday, a Pee Wee football team made up of 7- and 8-year-old boys in Cahokia, Illinois, took a knee during the National Anthem. The coach said he was asked by one of his players if he could take a knee like the NFL players do. He asked parents for approval, and they gave it.

“You have a Pee Wee football team whose coach is telling his entire team it’s OK to take a knee in honor of the drug dealer, and it was approved by the parents of the players,” Peterson said. “It’s unheard of, just mind-blowing to me, that the parents are OK with that. These boys are 8 years old, so that means we’re going to have another generation growing up hating white people and blaming them for their problems.”


Perverted North Korea leader Kim Jong-un plucks teenage girls from schools ‘with straight legs’ to be his sex slaves

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un plucks teenage girls from schools as his sex slaves – preferring those with “straight” legs, a defector claims.

The married dad-of-three sends officials to schools to look for the “prettiest” girls who are then sent to work at his homes around Pyongyang.

But they must have “straight, good” legs, says Hee Yeon Lim, whose father was a senior officer under the despot.

The girls must learn how to serve him luxury foods like caviar – while millions of North Koreansstarve – and massage his body.

They also have to sleep with him and they cannot make a mistake or they will “disappear”, says Hee Yeon, 26 now living in South Korea.

The ex-regime insider has revealed a terrifying insight from within Kim’s feared inner-circle.

She is risking her own life by telling the world how the paranoid leader lives like an emperor whilst casually ordering executions of confidantes and even relatives.

The petite Pyongyang graduate offers a rare glimpse inside a nuclear-weapons obsessed dictator who has imprisoned 25 million starving people in grinding poverty.

As Kim’s lunatic weapons programme hurtles towards all-out war she wants to expose the tyrant who is dangerously clashing with US President Donald Trump.

Hee Yeon told how Kim, 33, plucks teenage girls from schools as his sex slaves.

She said: “Officials came to our schools and picked out teenage girls to work at one of his ‘hundreds’ of homes around Pyongyang.

“They take the prettiest and ensure they have straight, good legs.

“They learn to serve him food like caviar and extremely rare delicacies. They are also taught how to massage him and they become sex slaves.

“Yes, they have to sleep with him and they cannot make a mistake or object because they could very easily simply disappear.”

Asked what happens if they get pregnant she says: “Maybe the same.”


Welfare supports Islamization of U.S., says ex-Muslim

German Muslim protest

“No-go zones” – a term most Americans associate with Islamic terrorist-laden communities taking over Europe – are already starting to be established in the United States … thanks to the taxpayer-funded welfare system, as seen in Europe, says a former Muslim.

Raheem Kassam, who has converted from Islam, is sending Americans a dire warning that the tide of Islamism has already begun in many U.S. cities, as the federal government continues to give welfare benefits to many American Muslims dedicated to isolating themselves from American culture and/or carrying out jihad so that they can have more time to coordinate Islamic terrorist attacks – instead of earning a living.

“[This] help [facilitates a] huge swathe of people not doing anything,” Kassam told Greg Corombos in an interview on Radio America. “All day, every day [there are] men hanging on street corners, in the cafes, outside smoking, drinking tea, chatting, going back and forth between the mosque and the café.”

Brace yourselves …

The author of the recently released No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You, goes to pains to warn freedom-loving Americans that if the politically correct political leaders and legislators in the U.S. continue to promote and adopt the Islam-embracing policies sweeping across Europe – which have resulted in a tide of deadly terrorist attacks – what happens on a regular basis across the Atlantic will be soon become a mainstay in the U.S., as well.

“[Kassam] explains such no-go zones already are a problem across Europe, and he sees the beginnings of the same troubles in America,” WND reported. “He said the radicals are being forced by the socialist programs in Europe into the circumstances that cause them to ‘live lives devoid of work, and joy and freedom – and he sees the same influences developing in America.”

The former adherent to Islam makes his case and point by bringing attention to what is happening in one of America’s most highly concentrated Muslim communities, which has been a hotbed for breeding Islamization for years.

“[H]e points out that a museum in the area of Dearborn, Michigan, which has a large Muslim population, already is ‘undermining the U.S. government’ and mocking the president and the vice president,” WND’s report continued.

Kassam describes the building dedicated to the so-called historical observance of cultures in few words.

“[The museum features] nothing more than anti-Israel propaganda,” he impressed.

Europe not far away …

Several thousand miles to the east, no-go zones are becoming the norm – rather than the exception – as the author pointed out from his on-location research abroad.

“I could not pick and choose when I wanted to be there, it was just whenever I could arrive, it was the middle of the night in many cases, it was whenever the train or the plane arrived,” he said, emphasizing that the extreme Islamization he found was not concentrated on just a few notorious areas.

In his book, Kassam announced that the United Kingdom, France, Germany Italy, Spain, Belgium and Sweden are all paying dearly for their mistakes of implementing politically correct immigration policies. As a consequence, the lives of dozens of their own citizens have been lost – being slaughtered in Islamic terrorist attacks.

In his publication, he highlights his visits to 14 cities that have gotten bad reputations for being plagued with no-go zones.

“There, almost daily reports of attacks by Muslim immigrants, often with knives or vehicles, are reported,” WND informed. “They include the Molenbeek area of Brussels and the Rosengard section in Malmo, Sweden, where outsiders, including police, dare not tread.”

In fact, anti-West Muslims have literally taken over many areas, where natives and other non-Muslims will face severe consequences for entering zones claimed in the name of Islam.

“The racist graffiti which appeared in Alum Rock in Birmingham has been condemned by locals,” Metro – a U.K. daily – reported. ”Racist graffiti has emerged on a wall in Birmingham that suggests white people aren’t welcome to the area.”

The message makes it clear that Anglo Europeans are not welcomed, but an attempt was made to mask the extreme racism and religious intolerance of Muslims in the area.

“The writing says ‘no whites allowed after 8am’ and it appeared in the inner-city neighborhood of Alum Rock,” the Metro’s Richard Hartley-Parkinson informed. “It appeared on August 13, and attempts have been made to cover the word ‘whites’, but it was still partially visible yesterday.”

Only getting worse …

Because the mainstream media refuses to shine anything having to do with Islam in a negative light, Kassam has made it his mission to expose the dire threat that many newly relocated Muslim communities pose to the Western world.

“What Kassam found in every one of his destinations was poverty, crime and extreme ghettoization – often not far from a posh area of the city,” WND noted.

The negative effect of Islamic communities popping up throughout Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia and North America is taboo to most journalists.

“A commonly heard trope from the Left, especially on the issue of climate change, is that ‘the science is settled,” and despite the science being settled on the question of whether No Go Zones exist, there is still a reluctance – born perhaps out of an unholy alliance of misplaced ‘tolerance,’ philosophical vacuousness, and perceived electoral advantages – to tackle the issue head on,” “Kasam explained in his book, No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You.

He noted that anything negative mentioned regarding Muslim immigration, refugees and their resettlement is labeled as hate by the Left – a so-called “intolerance” that must be severely dealt with … and ultimately eradicated

“No Go Zones are, in effect, a microcosm of the debate surrounding Muslim immigration and Islam – areas where few people will dare to venture,” Kassam continued in his book. “The pioneers of the subject matter in the late 20th and early 21st centuries have all ended up either dead, with prison sentences, with times for thought crimes, or had their lives reduced to skulking around public areas with their hats pulled ow and their fazes averted.”

 


School fears ‘USA’ chant could be intolerant and offensive

There are a lot of patriotic students at Vista Del Lago High School in Folsom, California. So you can imagine their shock when they were warned that chanting “U-S-A” at sporting events and pep rallies could appear to be inappropriate and intolerant.

Television station CBS 13 in Sacramento reports that school leaders feared the chants could come across as intolerant and offensive to some. They wrote, “at some schools across the country, the chants appeared to be used in derogatory ways toward opponents of different ethnicities.”

“We can communicate an unintended message,” the school’s principal wrote in a letter to parents.

The only people expressing angst about public demonstrations of American pride are school staffers.

What would the unintended message be – that young people still love the red, white and blue – that they want to make America great again?

Folsom Cordova Unified Communications Director Daniel Thigpen told the television station they have not banned the chant. They just want young people to be more considerate when they chant.

“To practice empathy, to practice kindness and to practice patriotism – you can do both,” Thigpen said.

The school’s principal suggested there are appropriate times to chant – like following the national anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance.

“I think it’s really sad that chanting USA in our country has even become a negative thing,” one parent told the television station.

The California Interscholastic Federation notified school districts across the state about concerns the “USA” chant might be used in a derogatory manner.

But that does not appear to be the case at Vista Del Lago High School.

“To say USA, you know, we’re all the same,” student Ryan Bernal told the television station. “We’re all American. It doesn’t matter what your skin tone is or where you’re from.”

That young man has more common sense that most of the grownups in charge of the school district.

“We’re all one,” Ryan said. “We all stand as one together.”

It should be stressed that there’s never been a complaint about the “USA” chants – not one.

The only people expressing angst about public demonstrations of American pride are school staffers.

Perhaps the school district should be more concerned about the unintended message that sends.


HILLARY CLINTON: ABORTION IS “SACROSANCT” AND NON-NEGOTIABLE FOR DEMOCRATS

 Hillary Clinton calls legalized abortion-on-demand “sacrosanct” and says endorsing it should be a litmus test for Democratic Party legislators. (Photo: Hillary Clinton supporting Planned Parenthood/via LifeSiteNews.com)

“After the election,” Clinton wrote in her forthcoming book, “What Happened,” “Bernie [Sanders] suggested that Democrats should be open to nominating and supporting candidates who are anti-choice. Other topics, such as economic justice, are sacrosanct, but apparently women’s health is not.”

“I don’t mean to criticize only Bernie here. A lot of progressives join him in thinking that reproductive rights are negotiable,” wrote the former Democratic presidential nominee whose surprise loss to Donald Trump left her party searching for ways to recover, including its “pro-choice” rigidity.

According to the Washington Examiner, Clinton in her book resurrects the old claim used by many political liberals—from former New York Governor Mario Cuomo to Senator Tim Kaine—that one can be “personally against abortion” and yet support abortion as a “right” in the law.

That duality is universally rejected by the pro-life movement, which regards laws allowing the killing of innocent, defenseless babies in the womb a human rights violation of incalculable proportions. As to Clinton’s tactic of advancing her “pro-choice” views on abortion in the name of “women’s rights,” pro-life women counter that across the world, sex-selection abortions disproportionately kill female unborn children.

“I’ve been working for a quarter century with Democrats and Republicans alike to reduce the number of abortions, in part by expanding access to birth control and family planning, and we’ve made progress,” Clinton wrote, according to the Examiner. “And I picked as my running mate Tim Kaine, a Democrat personally opposed to abortion because of his Catholic faith but supportive of women’s rights as a matter of law and policy.”


Dems on the move, blocking voter ID laws

Dems on the move, blocking voter ID laws

A political analyst believes that some Democrats – funded by George Soros – are attempting to create more opportunities for vote fraud in the 2018 and 2020 elections.

As  election records in New Hampshire have revealed that, compliments of same-day registration, more than 6,500 people registered to vote on Election Day 2016 using out-of-state driver’s licenses to identify themselves. About 5,500 of them never bothered to change their driver’s licenses to the Granite State within the two-month requirement.

Therefore, it’s possible that Republican Kelly Ayotte lost her Senate seat and President Trump lost the state’s three electoral votes because of fraudulent out-of-state votes cast on November 8, 2016.

Robert Knight, a senior fellow at the American Civil Rights Union, monitors the vote fraud issue and pens columns for The Washington Times and OneNewsNow. He says there’s no doubt the Democrats are gearing up to try to create more vote fraud opportunities during the next couple of national elections.

Robert Knight“Mark Elias, who was the campaign lawyer for Hillary Clinton, has gone around the country filing lawsuits against voter ID laws,” Knight tells OneNewsNow. “He’s been to several states – Ohio, Virginia, Wisconsin, North Carolina. He’s very busy.”

According to the columnist, Elias is backed by a group (Priorities USA) that is funded by George Soros, the left-wing billionaire who has apparently dedicated ten million dollars to “expanding” the electorate.

“To me that means expanding the electorate beyond citizens who are qualified to vote,” he adds.

Knight says the Left is reflecting a Marxist viewpoint by signaling that it really doesn’t care about America’s democratic/republican institutions.

“They think [those institutions are] in the way. It’s [a viewpoint] that might makes right; that they are the vanguard of the proletariat and therefore they have the right to impose whatever they want on anybody,” he explains.

“And [they also think] this nice slow American system, where people actually get the right to vote and have individual rights, is in their way,” he adds.

Knight contends those who have that mindset want to take down the current system and establish a “socialist, top-down government.”


PRO-LIFE Dems to pro-lifers, believers: ‘No room’ for you here

Sen. Dianne Feinstein at Gorsuch hearings

Pointing to recent statements by prominent Democrats, a longtime pro-life leader questions if there’s a place in that party for the faithful and supporters of life.

On September 6, U.S. senators grilled Amy Barrett, President Trump’s nominee for the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, during confirmation hearings. During those hearings, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) expressed grave concerns that Barrett – a professor at Notre Dame Law School and a devout Catholic – is a Catholic in good standing.

“When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you – and that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for, for years in this country,” Feinstein said.

Judie Brown of the American Life League was shocked at Feinstein’s remarks.

“The fact that she said that it was her opinion that the ‘dogma’ formed this woman’s faith just appalls me,” Brown shares with OneNewsNow. “What forms Dianne Feinstein’s faith? The devil. So of course if this nominee for the court is inspired by the words of Christ, God bless her.”

Then in her just-released book, Hillary Clinton contends that for Democrats – and for her personally – abortion is “sacrosanct” and there’s “no room” for negotiation on the issue, a position that effectively pushes pro-lifers out of the picture. Brown says that’s the fundamental argument feminists have promoted – i.e., that one must follow the party line, whatever that happens to be at any given time.

“And today, in 2017, feminism equals the support of abortion, transgenderism, gay rights, you name it. If it’s bad, they support it,” the pro-life leader says. “So if these women are going to be held up as icons of the Democratic Party, we should see a rush out of the Democratic Party by men who still consider themselves to be men.”

According to Brown, the faithful and pro-lifers are being hammered by the Democratic Party “to shame them into silence – which is the same thing fascists want.”

Democrats for Life responded to Feinstein’s treatment of Barrett with its own criticism:

“Democratic leaders remain so committed to protecting abortion from even minimal threats that they’ll trample on other principles to do so. A nominee repeatedly makes it clear that she won’t impose her personal beliefs as a judge – that she’ll remove herself from a case if she faces a conflict of conscience. But Democrats still reject her because they think that she has strong personal religious beliefs (‘dogma’).

“It’s another example of how the Democratic Party loses its way when it focuses on protecting rigid abortion-rights ideology to the exclusion of all other principles.”


UK Couple to Take Legal Action Against Church of England School After Male Student Allowed to Wear Dress

ISLE OF WIGHT — A couple in the United Kingdom has pulled their son out of school and plans to file a legal challenge after it was suggested that they might be “transphobic” for expressing concern that a boy was permitted to present himself as a girl on-and-off at the Church of England school their son attended.

“A Church of England school, especially, should hold to the biblical teaching that God created us as men and women, and that marriage is between a man and a woman, for life,” Nigel Rowe told Christian Concern, a legal group that is now representing the family. “The school should have consulted with all parents and taken their views into account, not just the views of one particular child’s parents.”

Nigel and his wife Sally explained that their six-year-old son came home confused after seeing another boy wearing boys’ clothes to school on some days and girls’ clothes on other days. The name of the school has not been disclosed.

“Unsurprisingly, we raised our concerns with the school when our son came from school saying he was confused as to why and how a boy was now sometimes a girl,” Rowe outlined. “The suggestion that gender is fluid conflicts sharply with our Christian beliefs as a family.”

The couple spoke to the head teacher, but the Rowes were told that teachers have accept how a child wants to identify or they could lose their job. The Rowes also sent a letter to outline their questions and concerns, and contacted the Diocese of Portsmouth, as well as the Church of England’s chief education officer.

However, the response from the school asserted that an “inability to believe a transgender person is actually a ‘real’ female or male” and “the refusal acknowledge a transgendered person’s true gender, e.g. by failing to use their adopted name or using gender-inappropriate pronouns” is “transphobic behavior.”

Jeff Williams, director of education for the Diocese of Portsmouth, also outlined in a statement, “Church of England schools are inclusive environments where pupils learn to respect diversity of all kinds. Like any other state school, our schools comply with the legal requirements of the Equalities Act 2010. Among other things, this requires schools to accept the wishes of children and their families with regard to gender identity. It would be unlawful for any of our schools to do otherwise.”

“Because our schools have a Christian ethos, we also believe that children of all faiths and those with none should all feel equally welcomed, valued and nurtured as children of God within our learning communities,” he said.

The couple was taken aback by the response they received.

“I am shocked by the suggestion, especially from a church school, that just because we question the notion that a six-year-old boy can really become a girl, we could be ‘transphobic,’” Rowe stated. “I cannot contemplate my six-year-old son being disciplined and stigmatised as a bully simply because he believes that another six-year old born as a boy, is actually a boy.”

The Rowes deny being transphobic, but rather desire to be biblical and God-honoring.

“As Christians, we believe that all people are valued and loved by God. But we also believe in the goodness of God’s created pattern of male and female. We certainly don’t have an irrational fear of those who are suffering from Gender Identity Disorder. In fact, we want to see them get the proper help that they need,” Rowe said.

The couple consequently decided to remove their child from school, and now also plans to file a legal challenge. The Rowes believe that the school is not considering the emotional and psychological effects that such an inculcation can cause long-term, in addition to the confusion that has already resulted.

“In basic terms, we believe it is wrong to encourage very young and vulnerable children to embrace the false promise of ‘transgenderism,” Nigel outlined. “As Christians, we believe that Gender Identity Disorder is something that needs to be addressed with love and compassion. But we cannot have a new ideology imposed on the primary school classroom. It is unfair both to the children in question, and other pupils and their families.”

The Rowes had pulled their eldest son, now eight, out of school two years prior due to the exact same situation. They now home school both boys.
