An Important Church and State Battle in Seattle

In the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution we find, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” These two parts, known as the “establishment clause” and the “free exercise clause” respectively, and together form the textual basis for the Supreme Court’s interpretations of the “separation of church and state” doctrine. It must be noted that prior to the early 1900’s no-one ever in the SCOTUS thought of what has become this modern doctrine which includes a “wall of separation.”


We have all seen the horrible violence in Seattle in the last year or so. But now there’s a new battle, virtually under the radar.

In 1932, the Union Gospel Mission began serving the poor and downtrodden in Seattle. But now this ministry which has been serving millions of meals through the years and providing many other services may have to shut its doors because of a decision by the Washington Supreme Court…

MSNBC Calls Christians the American Taliban Because They’re Pro-Life on Abortion – LifeNews.com

WARNING, less you think it not possible here in America, the coming intolerance for all things “Christian” is only beginning!


Twice in one week, senior pundits at MSNBC have compared Christians to the Taliban. On August 14, MSNBC host Joy Reid, speaking of the Taliban, tweeted that “our own far religious right” is “dreaming of a theocracy that would impose a particular brand of Christianity” on American society.

the lead story on MSNBC’s website, written by Dan Obeidallah, picks up on the comparison by criticizing Republicans who cling to “a narrow reading of their religious beliefs,”…

Hobby Lobby ordered to pay $220K for not allowing trans employee to use women’s restroom

Someone seriously has to explain to me how a biological MALE who used a mensroom for over a decade without any mental distress and now self identifies as a Female is distressed when folks don’t want HIM in a female’s restroom? Especially when the company goes out of it’s way to accommodate the employee. Sorry folks but this is simply illogical never mind an unbiblical attack on religious freedom by the courts.


A state court has ordered the Christian-owned craft store chain Hobby Lobby to pay over $200,000 in fines for refusing to allow one of its trans-identified employees to use the women’s bathroom. 

A three-judge Illinois appellate court panel unanimously ruled Friday that Hobby Lobby violated the Illinois Human Rights Act by declining to allow one of its employees to use the bathroom that corresponds with the person’s gender identity instead of biological sex…

Why The Greatest Gift the Church Can Give Us Is Forgiveness

We have all been there and seen them, individuals or churches as a whole who shun ex-inmates or those who do not “conform” to their ideal of the “perfect” Christian. Simply put that is Legalism and has no place in any CHURCH. Basically, they are saying Christ’s atonement was good enough for only those they chose. I want to be careful here and clearly state neither I nor the author is making a case for open widespread forgiveness when church disciple need be applied. That is clearly something different and greatly lacking in evangelical churches today.

The term cancel culture evokes images of screaming undergrads, de-platformed speakers, fired employees, and demanding protesters. However, the cancel culture ethic doesn’t simply exist “out there” in the larger culture; it has infiltrated our homes. Our dinner tables have become personal social media platforms…

When Inclusivity Becomes Incoherence

Like his Democratic predecessor, President Biden has prioritized LGBTQ rights in both the domestic and foreign policies of the United States. The administration’s priorities were made most obvious in early June when an enormous rainbow flag was hung outside the U.S. embassy to the Vatican. While “trolling” the Roman Catholic Church isn’t usually a diplomatic priority, officials made their intentions clear by tweeting: “The U.S. Embassy to the Holy See celebrates #PrideMonth with the Pride flag on display during the month of June. The United States respects the dignity and equality of LGBTQI+ people”…

Is China’s Next Leap Forced Procreation?

BP Email Header-01

China’s next great leap forward could be forced procreation, and it’s animated by the same ideas that energize so much of the West. In 1957, Chinese dictator Mao Zedong told a Yugoslav official that his nation did not fear a nuclear attack: “What if they killed 300 million of us?” he said. “We would still have many people left.”…

Loving Our Neighbors by Refusing to Lie

BreakPoint Daily

When John McCain was running for President in 2008, Saturday Night Live ran a recurring skit about his running-mate, then-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Tina Fey, playing Gov. Palin in her trademark red suit, delivered the memorable line, “I can see Russia from my house!”

It was pretty funny. It also wasn’t real. Sarah Palin never said she could see Russia from her house. Today, however, a surprising number of people believe she did. This is a testimony to the power of lies…
