Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible,22049,20961212-5001028,00.html 21 December 2006 GAY NATIVITY SCENE SPARKS OUTRAGE (Edited by DCB) "TWO Italian politicians outraged fellow lawmakers by placing dolls representing homosexual couples near the baby Jesus in the parliament's official nativity scene." The two politicians "said their gesture was to promote the legalisation of gay marriage and granting legal recognition to unmarried couples."

Editor’s Comment: It is interesting this took place under the shadow of Rome’s Pope. 2Peter 2:6 "And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly." FROM THE BELLEVUE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE TO THE CONGREGATION OF BELLEVUE BAPTIST CHURCH. 17 December 2006 (Edited by DCB) Bellevue Baptist Church Memphis, TN has held a high profile among Southern Baptist churches in that the late Robert G. Lee was its pastor from 1927 to 1960. In more recent times the church was pastored by the late Adrian Rogers, 1972 – 2005. Now their web site sadly states that "A past, but highly concerning moral failure by a staff member has come to the attention of the leadership of the church." According to this staff member has been "at the church for 34 years" and "had been placed on leave with an investigation pending regarding a ‘moral failure,’ identified by Gaines and others as alleged child molestation in the 1980s." If this is true the incident occurred under the leadership of Adrian Rogers. According to "Rogers' widow said her husband had no knowledge of the abuse allegations, although they occurred during his tenure."

Editor’s Comment: 1Peter 4:17 "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?" SENATE BANS PASTOR AFTER HE CONDEMNS SAME-SEX MARRIAGE 13 December 2006 (Edited by DCB) On the same day a New Jersey Senate committee advanced a bill allowing same sex civil unions Pastor Vincent Fields spoke "out against same-sex marriage when he offered the invocation at the opening of the Senate session on Monday." But Pastor Fields said he had not planned to do this but "the Holy Spirit took over, and I had to pray what he said." In his prayer Pastor Fields said "We curse the spirit that would come to bring about same-sex marriage" and "We ask you to just look over this place today, cause them to be shaken in their very heart in uprightness, Lord, to do that is right before you." Of course in this day of political correctness this "has gotten the pastor banned from giving future Senate invocations." The pastor was also criticized for "citing Jesus twice in his prayer" as "The invocations are usually non-specific to any religion."

Editor’s Comment: 1Peter 3:14 "But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled." UN ESTABLISHES NEW ANTI-ISRAEL OFFICE 17 December 2006 (Edited by DCB) "The United Nations, which has distinguished itself more by its anti-Israel activity than any of its peace-keeping or other humanitarian works, Friday voted to open a new facility at which Israel’s enemies can lodge complaints against the Jewish state." This means that "Any Arab who believes Israel’s security barrier has infringed on his/her rights will now be able to register for compensation at a new office that will be set up in Vienna."

Editor’s Comment: Genesis 12:3 "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.",425,The-Blasphemy-Challenge,The-Rational-Response-Squad- "THE BLASPHEMY CHALLENGE" REWARDS PARTICIPANTS FOR DEMONSTRATING NON- BELIEF ON YOUTUBE 14 December 2006 (Edited by DCB) Philadelphia – "The Rational Response Squad has launched a $25,000 campaign to entice young people to publicly renounce any belief in the sky God of Christianity. Called ‘The Blasphemy Challenge,’ this campaign encourages participants to commit what Christian doctrine calls the only unforgivable sin -- blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. (The ‘Holy Spirit’ is an invisible ghost who Christians believe dwells on Earth as God's representative.)" According to the web site "More than 160 participants have already blasphemed the Holy Spirit and earned free DVDs during the pre-launch phase of the Blasphemy Challenge."

Editor’s Comment: Romans 3:18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes." rss&channel=miamiherald_breaking_news PROTESTANTS FIND ROOM IN FAITH FOR MARY (Edited by DCB) "Growing up in a Lutheran church, the Rev. Roger Prehn rarely heard about the Virgin Mary, except during Christmas. Now a pastor in Orlando, Prehn preaches in a sanctuary with a nearly life-size bronze statue of Mary and the baby Jesus. During advent, the four weeks leading up to Christmas, he leads his congregation in singing the Magnificat -- a prayer Mary sings in the Gospel of Luke." Prehn said "''We've ignored Mary, and now we're recovering her place in salvation history." Prehn is not alone for now "many Protestants are looking at Mary in a new light, inspired in part by growing dialogue with Catholics, the influence of Latin American immigrants who bring strong religious traditions of honoring Mary and a recent explosion of Mary-themed books, websites, popular songs and movies such as The Passion of the Christ and The Nativity Story."

Editor’s Comment: In his sermon THE AXE AT THE ROOT-A TESTIMONY AGAINST PUSEYITE IDOLATRY Spurgeon said "This is the history of religious worship, that let spiritual worship assume what form it may, man always will if he can, get away from it and forget his God and set up something seen, instead of bowing down before the unseen…" KWANZAA CELEBRATED THROUGHOUT THE CITY 26 December 2006 (Edited by DCB) "Kwanzaa, the African-American celebration of family, community and culture, will have a more significant presence in Des Moines this year. The city plans to hold a series of daily events throughout the metro to mark the seven principles that define the holiday." Those 7 principles are: - "Umoja (unity): To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race. - Kujichagulia (self-determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves. Ujima (collective work and responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers' and sisters' problems our problems and to solve them together. Ujamaa (cooperative economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together. Nia (purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to

restore our people to their traditional greatness. Kuumba (creativity): To do as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and better than we inherited it. Imani (faith): To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders and the righteousness and victory of our struggle." Churches and other groups in the community have joined together to "extend Kwanzaa's reach." The 7 principles correspond with the "the seven-fold path of blackness is think black, talk black, act black, create black, buy black, vote black and live black."

Editor’s Comment: According to an article by Jerry Falwell found at RETHINKING KWANZAA, this reversed racism was introduced into the American black culture in 1966 by Ron Karenga (born Ron Everett). Karenga had Marxist leanings and in 1969 at UCLA led a group of students known as the United Slaves. Female members of the United Slaves said they were tortured at the command of Karenga himself. In 1971 Kerenga was sent to prison for felonious assault and false imprisonment. Yet, upon his release from prison Karenga was appointed to the Black Studies Department at California State University in Long Beach, CA. It might be said "only in America" but nonsense such as this is taking place around the world. HOMOPHOBIA SPIES IN THE CLASSROOM 28 December, 2006 "Schools that fail to show enthusiasm in rooting out prejudice against homosexuals should be reported to the police by pupils and parents, a Home Office report recommended yesterday." This report "called for parents and children to identify schools that ignore ‘homophobic’ language in the playground and teachers who produce ‘homophobic’ lessons." It also calls for "head teachers to bring lessons about ‘homophobia’ on to school timetables and to involve their pupils in gay ‘awareness weeks’." The report even calls for a "hate crime co-ordinator".

Editor’s Comment: 1Kings 14:24 "And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out…" dailytelegraph/story/0,22049,21001233-5001021,00.html CATHOLICS GIVEN PREGNANCY ROLE 2 January 2007 (Edited by DCB) "THE Catholic Church has been given a $51 million government contract to offer pregnancy counselling - despite being its opposition to abortion. Health Minister Tony Abbott - himself a devout Catholic who once trained too be a priest - this morning defended the decision saying safeguards would be put in place to make sure no one accessing the service was lectured on the perceived evils of abortion. He said it was the Church's professionalism and not its philosophy which was important, and urged anyone to report if they felt they were lectured. The multi-million dollar contract has been awarded to the church's health and welfare arm Centacare."

Editor’s Comment: Australia has 100,000 "lawful" murders (abortions) each year! This $51,000,000 of Australian tax payer’s money is only a drop in the bucket of the total spent in this murdering the unborn. Shame on Australia!,22049,21005413-5001028,00.html PORK SOUP KITCHEN NOT RACIST 3 January 2007 (Edited by DCB) "A FRENCH organisation with far-right links can keep distributing pork soup to the homeless, a court has ruled, rejecting police complaints that it is racist. Police banned the soup kitchen last month, saying the handouts discriminated against Jews and Muslims who do not eat pork on religious grounds." The ruling was condemned by the mayor of Paris but the lawyer for the soup kitchen said "No one has ever been able to prove that anyone has been refused soup or clothes on the grounds of their religion or race."

Editor’s Comment: Luke 15: 16 "And he (this Jewish lad) would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat..." INVASION USA- SATELLITES WILL HELP MEXICANS SNEAK IN HANDHELD NAVIGATION AIDS FOR ILLEGALS CROSSING BORDER 1 January 2007 (Edited by DCB) "Illegal aliens crossing the U.S.-Mexico border will reportedly be given handheld satellite devices by Mexican authorities to help them survive their illicit journey."

Editor’s Comment: " ‘The illegal immigration problem is allowing hundreds of thousands of criminal aliens to invade our nation and kill, maim, rob and abuse our citizens,’ warns the one of the vice presidents of the 14,000-member National Association of Chiefs of Police. Research revealed that in one 9-month period the federal government arrested over 100,000 criminal aliens. These arrests do not include arrests made by state and local law enforcement." CHRISTIAN PILGRIMS GET DOWN AT 'GOD'S DISCO' IN LOURDES 1 January 2007 "Piousness and partying came together for New Year's celebrations overnight as Christian pilgrims visiting France's famous miracle town of Lourdes got down and boogied in ‘God's disco’. Around 1,000 faithful kicked up their heels in the unusual nightclub as Exo, a Christian pop group created in 1991 by a couple of US missionaries, blasted out their tunes from an outdoors stage." After the disco "Bishop Jacques Perrier of Lourdes held a mass in front of the town's grotto."

Editor’s Comment: Daniel 3:5 "That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image…"
