Hedonists And Atheists Are Happy To Acknowledge That Game Of Thrones Turns Them On Sexually And Encourages Them To Fantasize, Porn Use Actually Decreases On The Nights That The Show Airs, And Yet An Increasing Number Of Christians Insist They Have The “Spiritual Maturity” To Watch It’s Graphic Sex Scenes And Gratuitous Nudity With An Immune Stoicism

I know a bunch of Christians who watch the show and try to justify it in a bunch of different ways – the depths to which they sink is terrifying.

“It’s a great story, it’s unconventional story-telling, it’s full of morally complex-characters, it shows us our need for redemption, it exposes us to the darkness of humanity, it’s got really great art design, yada yada, blah blah.”

One particularly clever saying shifts the spotlight over the violence, as though that somehow justifies it:

“Oh, yes I do find some of the sex and nudity shocking…but the violence is also shocking.”

Nice try.

How about these Christians explain to us how watching packet corn syrup splatter and plaster cast heads drop off fills them with the same dread and horror as scoping out some young, buxom bosom?

Yeah, recovering from that shock must be really tough – you got my deepest sympathy, bro!

I was addicted to pornography for a good decade of my life so I know porn when when I hear about it. I also read the books way back when I was addicted to porn and I longed for a movie version of it because, hey, it would be violent and full of sex and nudity – a lot like porn which, if you have a minimalist moral compass (and boy did I), sounds fantastic! 

I write this to make the point that if a Christian is going to try and justify their immoral lifestyle choices that completely contradict the biblical scriptures and the historical teachings of the church regarding sexuality, they have your work cut out.

But try they do.

The “spiritually mature” argument is a great one – it essentially gives you the licence to do, well, anything you can think of and make an appeal to the liberty we have in Christ.

They even deceive themselves so far as to apply Romans 14 to justify themselves. Let’s recap:

“One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand. One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God.” Romans‬ ‭14:2-6‬ ‭ESV‬‬

I suppose Paul, the apostle appointed by Jesus Messiah himself to reach the Gentiles with the proclamation of God’s coming kingdom, could have meant that people who abstain from watching pornographic sex scenes are weak!

Sure, Paul may have intended that if you are fully convinced in your own mind that watching all those bouncing breasts and vivacious vaginas, then watch away in honour of the Lord!

Then again, Paul did earlier write:

“Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.” Romans‬ ‭1:22-25‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Perhaps the worship of images Paul refers to extends to the pornographic ones on the television screen?!

Indeed, Jesus does set people free but in case the point needed emphasis, he doesn’t do it so you can watch Game of Thrones and pretend that watching naked women feigning  orgasm has no effect on you. 

It’s like watching porn and claiming it has no effect on you. Seriously?!

Anyone Christian who disagrees is welcome to demonstarte their conviction by sending me naked pictures artistic portrayals of their wives or girlfriends, or if they are a woman, themselves. After all, there is a beauty in nude “art” that us spiritually mature can handle.

Anyway, about the following article: I loathe to publish something supportive of Game of Thrones but if it exposes the self-serving lies of Christians who promote any show with sex and nudity as permissible before God, then the words of your enemies can actually point people to the truth about God. 

PornHub data shows the sexually-charged and barbaric (but totally awesome) program is so good at fulfilling our sexual needs, the nights it airs leads to a drop in porn consumption.

And for those not getting their fill during airtime, search words “Game of Thrones” increase on the porn site that evening — by a whopping 370 per cent, in fact.

So statistically we know the show turns us on — but anecdotally it’s also liberating our conversations around sex.

What’s a bit of incest between siblings? 

Gone are the days where my friends and I were timid about sharing our sexual fantasies. Now my colleagues are leaning over the partition to tell me watching Games of Thrones with a beau is the perfect “warm-up” to an evening filled with sexual delight.

The night is dark and full of pleasure, indeed.

We’re also sharing what gets us off and there’s no holding back on the fact that a bit of disturbing television romance may be helping in that department. Yeah, we might not want to invite Joffrey and his thirst for pain into our bedroom, but we’re no longer afraid to say we enjoy watching it.

And it’s not just medieval style-sadism that is rocking our world — “softer” pornography like Fifty Shades of Grey has women changing their porn habits also. Early last year PornHub reported a 219 per cent increase in searches conducted by women for the word “submission” in the days after the premiere of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Searches for “dominate” and “spanking” were also on the up.

The release of the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey last year saw a dramatic shift in the porn searches conducted by women. 

Rewind more than a decade and it was Sex in the City loosening up women’s dialogue about men and dating. All of the characters talked opening about orgasms, regularly faced dilemmas such as Carrie’s politician boyfriend asking her to pee on him, and sleeping with as many men as they pleased was A-OK.

But women are now well past being comfortable talking about what brand of vibrator we use — we want next level in a space we feel at ease sharing and GoT airing on primetime is giving that to us.

Some More Terrifyingly Accurate Commentary On The Trump Phenomenon (Which Is A Consequence Of The Success Of The Obama Phenomenon)

Look, Hillary is exactly the same too so don’t go thinking there will be a winner when one of these two gets elected – there will only be losers.

The States, the Free World, everyone.

Time to stop trusting in human leadership and look to the God-man Jesus.

Why would millions of Americans rally behind a Republican presidential candidate who, according to every poll, and at a rate plunge precisely commensurate with the number of times he opens his mouth, has a zero percent chance of winning the general election?

It’s simple. America’s mood is revolutionary – like, in an Emancipation Proclamation kind of way. Our present political climate, an antagonistic cacophony of cultural discord, rage and exasperation by the unwashed masses with our party establishment “better-thans,” is like nothing we’ve ever seen or imagined.

Or is it?

Dutch politician and historian Guillaume Groen van Prinsterer (1801-1876) is credited with what seems an eerily prescient foreshadowing of the bizarre phenomenon that is “Trump 2016.”

“Pent-up anger and long-held frustration due to economic stagnation, moral decay, spiritual impotency, and political corruption,” he opined, “invariably pave the way for the rise of crass manipulators. Instead of a mastery of truth, such revolutionary opportunists tap into fear and rage, ignorance and prejudice, staging great public spectacles of narcissism.”

It’s human nature. Such sense of hopelessness, anger, betrayal and frustration can lead otherwise good people (some of whom I respect and admire) to make very bad decisions – to exercise poor judgment.

It gave us Barack Obama in 2008.

And Donald Trump in 2016.

trump america againIndeed, we’ve moved seamlessly from “Hope” and “Change We Can Believe In,” to “Make America Great Again.” It’s as though van Prinsterer had a crystal ball through which to keep tabs on the Donald’s ivory Trump Tower office suite.
“Pent-up anger and long-held frustration due to economic stagnation, moral decay, spiritual impotency, and political corruption. …”

No honest person – though President Obama, a decidedly dishonest person, yet tries – can say with a straight face that we have not entered an era of “economic stagnation.” With trillions in debt, tens-of-millions of Americans dependent on unfunded “social justice” programs, and millions more having given up on looking for work altogether, we’re actually teetering on the precipice of total economic collapse.

Moral decay, spiritual impotency, and political corruption? That’s America 2016 in toto. Since 1973 we’ve sacrificed nearly 60 million of our most innocent fellow citizens at Baal’s altar of convenience and “equality.”

Just this past June we had five radical lawyers on the U.S. Supreme Court thumb their nose at natural law, shake their fist at God and presume to deconstruct and redefine the institution of marriage to include the “especially abominable sin of Sodom.” This, while an increasingly apostate Christian church sat idly by and did little-to-nothing or, worse, affirmatively endorsed this shameful desecration of God’s created order.

I needn’t elaborate on Washington’s systemic culture of political corruption. They no longer even try to fake it. The betrayal has cut to the quick.

Enter Donald Trump – a several-times-bankrupt, big-government globalist, pro-socialized medicine, pro-abortion, pro-“gay marriage,” lifelong liberal Democrat – to save the day. That is, at least, to peddle the right kind of snake oil and bark the right kind of empty “Make America Great Again” platitudes that festering wounds crave and itching ears want to hear.

“… invariably pave the way for the rise of crass manipulators.”

Crass manipulator? No two words better describe Mr. Trump. Unless, of course, you consider it classy when a leading presidential candidate, an unrepentant serial adulterer, personally attacks his political opponents as “stupid liars,” sleazily suggesting that their wives are ugly (Heidi Cruz is a lovely woman both inside and out), brags about the size of his manhood from the debate stage, or habitually and unapologetically verbally abuses women – somebody’s wives, mothers and daughters – by calling them “pigs,” “ugly,” “fat” or “great pieces of a–.”

Trump recently boasted that he’s “such a good Christian.” Inexplicably, many Christians believe him. Or, at least, they really, really want to.

I pray that someday he will be – that Donald Trump might have a genuine coming to Christ and that, as Jesus told us would happen once he does, he might reflect this transformation in and through the righteous fruits of his words and deeds.
Like each of us, Jesus is Donald’s only chance at salvation.

“Instead of a mastery of truth, such revolutionary opportunists tap into fear and rage, ignorance and prejudice. …”

That’s all Mr. Trump has to work with – “fear, rage, ignorance and prejudice.” As absurdly demonstrated time and again, he’s completely devoid of substance and, when pressed to articulate even a modicum of evidence that he maintains but a middle schoolers grasp on the issues, deflects the question by personally attacking the questioner with the most shrill, jarring and vulgar of ad hominem name calling.

The man is a political chameleon. Over and over again, he somehow gets away with wholly reversing himself on any given position, on any given issue, on any given day – sometimes within hours of making a completely contradictory, and often incoherent, position statement.

Even so, to his cult of personality, the Trumpster remains the Teflon Don.
“… staging great public spectacles of narcissism.”

Angry Donald TrumpAs contemporary political figures go, and second to Barack Obama alone, Donald Trump represents the caricature of wounded narcissism (a self-centeredness that likely stems from insecurity). You needn’t ask, but he’s all too happy to tell you anyway. “I am a really smart guy,” he constantly reminds us. “I’m intelligent. Some people would say I’m very, very, very intelligent.”

“Sorry, losers and haters,” he has said, “but my I.Q. is one of the highest – and you all know it!”

I don’t doubt it. History has shown that “crass manipulators” and “revolutionary opportunist,” as van Prinsterer called them, are, generally speaking, very intelligent.
Of the Dutch historian’s seemingly prophetic statement, columnist and Pastor John Kirkwood asks, “Prescient or just discerning? This [the Trump phenomenon] couldn’t come true if it were not for the decline of the conservative mind. This couldn’t be happening if it were not for the faithlessness of the believer. Yet, we stand in judgment over other nations that have been conquered by fear, rage, ignorance and prejudice, and in our hubris exclaim, ‘It could never happen here.’”

Yet here it happens.

And what of the “faithlessness of the believer”? What of this demonstrably incongruous wave of Christian support for Donald Trump?

Van Prinsterer might have blamed it on widespread “moral decay” and “spiritual impotency.” I mostly agree.

Still, for the church, at least, and insofar as concerns many Christians’ wayward support (in my view) for this man of the world, I think the phenomenon can more precisely be described as “moral indifference” and “spiritual adultery.”

It’s a lack of faithfulness – a trusting in the things of this world, rather than in the promises of God.

“Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” (James 4:4).

It’s better not to hedge your bet with the Creator of the universe.

The Problems With Trump

It’s almost inconceivable that Trump would do a worse job than Obama, namely because Obama has made it clear that he hates everything America was founded on: Christianity, Capitalism, religious freedom, and limited government.

Trump likes at least one of these things (and may perhaps tolerate some others) so, for those not mathematically inclined, one out of four trumps none.

The question is how much better could he do?

Bill Muehlenberg offers some sound reflections on Trump:

This is my first full piece on Donald Trump, but it more than likely will not be my last. The front-runner for the Republicans for the White House is certainly generating plenty of discussion and controversy, and it is vital for all true Christians to consider him – and the other remaining contenders – very prayerfully and carefully.

And as usual, I must quickly dispense with various wrong answers or unbiblical extremes. As I recently said in a radio interview, the idea that believers can just pray while ignoring politics is greatly mistaken. That is to renounce our responsibilities as believers to be good citizens and to be salt and light.

But equally wrong is the idea that some politician or political party is going to somehow save us – or in this case, America. The Christian understands that ultimately only Christ can save a nation, and no mere human can even come close.

But government is God’s idea, and righteousness exalts a nation. So who is governing does matter, and clearly some politicians, parties and policies are better than others. So we need to get the biblical balance right here. We must pray of course but we must also get involved in the political process, if at the very least by voting wisely.

The original field of 17 Republican contenders has now narrowed to five: three conservatives (Cruz, Rubio and Carson), one RINO (Kasich) and Trump. At first I and many other Christians and conservatives thought Trump might have a few things going for him, but the more we learn about him, the less appealing he becomes.

trump 5One can certainly see the appeal of someone like Trump. He socks it to ‘em. He speaks his mind. He is not a Washington insider. He is willing to say what many will not say. He is not PC. He is riding on the high levels of disillusionment with both major parties.

As Christian commentator J D Hall explains:

I’ll tell you why people like Donald Trump. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t care what Hollywood celebs think. He doesn’t care what Beltway career politicians think. He doesn’t care what Russell Moore thinks. He doesn’t care what journalists think. He doesn’t care what CNN or MSNBC or even FOX thinks. I kind of get the impression he doesn’t care what the crowds he speaks to think. If he doesn’t win the presidency, he’ll go back to being rich and famous. Frankly, that’s a breath of fresh air. For 30 years, everyone in America has been walking on politically correct egg shells. We’ve all been hunkered down in fear of being called what evangelicals are calling Trump – racist, misogynist, jingoistic, bigoted, egotistical, self-centered. We all want to vote for a guy who doesn’t care. Trump is almost guaranteed to bring the “change” we’ve been hearing about every four years. The only question is if it’s good change. But for many voters, any change is good change.

That is the real issue. Obama of course promised hope and change, but look at how that turned out. Not all change is good change. Yes I too am sick of the Washington cartel, as Cruz puts it. Yes I want some bold, fearless and non-PC leaders to come and clean things up in Washington big time.

But I really question whether Trump is the man. He of course is not a Christian, and one can strongly argue that he is not a conservative either. Most of his life was spent pushing progressive and liberal causes, and much of his wealth has gone to Democrats.

It is not just politics, but questions of his character. And character does matter. As I wrote long ago, if you cannot even be true to your own wife, how can we trust you to be true to the nation? As I wrote 18 years ago:

Our real problems today are not economic problems. Nor are they political problems. Our real problems have to do with values, with character, with morality. A country can survive a current account deficit, but it cannot for long survive a value deficit. And the first place to begin in restoring this value deficit is to reaffirm character, integrity and morality, both private and public.

It is interesting to note that character was the only consideration enumerated by the American founding fathers as relevant to qualifications to serve in public office. A person’s politics, philosophy or ideology may be important, but the most important qualification is character. Without good character, good government is not possible. 

Indeed, more than one commentator has noted that morality, more than anything else, is the key to a healthy and lasting democracy. Politics skills can be learned, policies adjusted. But without character, a nation will soon flounder on the rocks of moral relativism.

We are seeing such an unravelling of the commonweal now. The need for leadership based on character and values is now our most pressing need. We need to recall the words of George Washington in his farewell address: “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”

We have paid a terrible price in the false separation of morality from social problems. Australia’s (and America’s) rising tide of social pathology will only be reversed when we once again acknowledge that character and morality are not optional extras, but are the essence of civilised society.

And plenty of evangelical leaders of late have been writing about Trump’s character – or lack thereof. George Otis Jr is one of many, and he just penned a piece today on this. 

He writes:

The truth is Donald Trump has two ruined (of his own) marriages, and is now on his third (with a woman who has posed for lesbian porn). He has made a bank-full of money from casino operations, owned strip joints and a vodka business, and acknowledged no need of repentance before a holy God. And yet he has garnered the endorsements of Christian luminaries like Sarah Palin, Jerry Falwell, Jr., Phyllis Schlafly, and Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson. Go figure.

A Trump vote is primarily a protest vote: ‘a pox on both your houses’. And fair enough in one sense. But we need more than a mere protest. One can argue that various dictators got in on a protest vote. Simply lashing out at what is broken, while simply opting for something or someone else that is broken is not the answer.

But the Trump supporters will say we need someone who is a strong leader, who speaks his mind, and is not worried about what others think. ‘Trump is a winner’ they say. Yes, but the same can be said about plenty of other leaders, including Hitler.

We need a principled winner, not a megalomaniac whose only priority is himself. Simply winning may solve nothing, and just make matters worse. Indeed, unless we address America’s spiritual problems, no mere man – no matter how strong and forthright – will make much difference. 

As Otis says:

If we think the dysfunction in Washington, DC is anything other than a reflection of our own selfishness, compromise, and neglect, we are seriously deceived. And it does no good to talk of deliverance if we are unwilling to break the habit of blame shifting. It is easy to fixate on the government’s shortcomings, but we cannot afford to overlook our own. As Os Guinness so aptly puts it, “The problem is not the wolves at the door. It is the termites in the floor.” Whether Evangelicals will recognize this danger in time is an open question — but our recent migration to ungodly, narcissistic candidates is not an encouraging sign.

Or as Michael Brown recently put it, “Simply stated, I firmly believe that our greatest problems are moral and spiritual, not economic or otherwise, and to think that we can make America great again by securing our borders, defeating ISIS and rebuilding our economy, without first addressing the moral rot in our society, is to deceive ourselves gravely.”

Yes quite so. Yet everyone prefers the quick fix and the easy way out. They think that a quick vote at the ballot box will deal with our troubles and make everything good again. 

Far too many Christians think this way as well. After all, if they think they can pop a magic pill for instant spirituality, why not for the political arena?

Lazy and carnal Christians prefer a political messiah to come along and solve everything instead of doing the biblical hard work of 2 Chronicles 7:14. Why bother to repent and humble yourselves and pray and seek God’s face when you can just vote for Trump?

Why get on your faces before Almighty God and agonise over your own sins and the sins of a nation when you can just pin your hopes on a fast-talking political contender? Getting Trump to restore America to greatness sounds good, and is a pain-free option.

But the only ultimate answer to America’s malaise and decline is if God’s people get on their knees and repent. Until that happens, we are likely toast. Yes if it ends up between Trump and Clinton, I may still very grudgingly vote for Trump. However, each new day makes me really wonder about that.

Just opting out from voting is not the biblical answer. But what then are the best alternatives if a genuine conservative does not get the nomination? Do we go for an independent, or third party? Both options will pretty much guarantee Hillary or Bernie will win and finish off Obama’s job of destroying America.

All avenues are looking real grim and will take a lot of careful praying and thinking by believers if Trump does win the bid. Political realists will argue (and I have at least some sympathy for them) that if we opt out of voting for Trump and allow the Dems to get in, we are creating real trouble. The debate in part centres on how much less bad – if at all – Trump will be than the two Democrats.

We are in a difficult place here and need a lot of divine wisdom on all this. But for the time being we still have much better choices with folks like Cruz who are real Christians and real conservatives. And in future articles I will seek to make the case for why we need someone like Cruz as POTUS.

We really must pray and work like never before here. Even if a real solid conservative gets in on November 8, that still guarantees nothing as to America’s future. It may just slow down the rot for a few years, and God’s judgment may well still be upon the land.

John Calvin spoke in his Institutes about how God allows evil rulers as a form of punishment on a nation. If Clinton or Sanders get in, and maybe even Trump, we may well be in for some real divine – and rightly deserved – judgment. Lord have mercy.

There are plenty of better candidates. Pray that one gets the nomination.

Were San Bernardino Killings Islamic Revenge Against Israel Supporter And Messianic Jew Nicholas Thalasinos?

Here’s something you won’t hear about a massive story in the mainstream media:

Why is the mainstream media ignoring evidence that the primary reason why Sayed Farook and his wife went on a deadly shooting spree in San Bernardino, California was because Farook wanted to get revenge on a pro-Israel Messianic Jewish Christian co-worker? 52-year-old Nicholas Thalasinos had worked alongside Farook as an inspector for an extended period of time, and it is being reported that they would often have discussions about religion and politics. As you will see below, the two had been arguing about whether Islam was a peaceful religion or not, Farook had reportedly made threats to kill Thalasinos, and Farook had was quite insistent that Islam would someday “rule the world”.

As authorities search for a motive for the shootings, you would think that a “heated, passionate” debate that took place between Farook and Thalasinos just a few days earlier would be a natural place to start. The following comes from CNN…

One of Farook’s colleagues killed in the attack, Nicholas Thalasinos, liked to discuss religion and politics. Farook and Thalasinos, reportedly a devout Messianic Jew, had a “heated, passionate” discussion about politics and religion a few days earlier, said Kuuleme Stephens, a friend of Thalasinos, who called him at work while Thalasinos was in the middle of the conversation.

But apparently what transpired between the two went far beyond just a “discussion”. According to a close friend of Thalasinos, Farook told Thalasinos that “Christians and Jews deserve to die”, and he also threatened to kill Thalasinos in particular. This next excerpt comes from an article by Paul Joseph Watson…

A close friend of Nicholas Thalasinos, one of the victims of the San Bernardino shooting, said that gunman Sayed Farook had threatened to kill Thalasinos because he was Jewish and asserted that “Islam will rule the world.”

CV Claverie posted the following Facebook message on Thursday evening;

“The islamic terrorist who took the Life of my friend & bro in Christ, Nicholas Thalasinos, on yesterday in San Bernadino, CA, had been threatening him, telling him that islam will rule the world, Christians and Jews deserve to die; and that he (Nicholas) was going to die.”

To me, this appears to be the core of the whole story. But it has been almost entirely discarded by the mainstream media because it does not fit with any of the “narratives” that they are trying to push.

If Thalasinos was a member of a group favored by the liberal media, his name would be everywhere and this angle of the story would be front page news. But because he was a pro-Israel Messianic Christian Jew, the fact that Thalasinos and Farook had been heatedly arguing only a few days before the shootings is being given very little importance. Apparently at least one of the “discussions” that had really upset Farook was one about whether or not Islam is a peaceful religion…

Thalasinos is a member of a messianic church and is strongly pro-Israel. His Facebook page is filled with positive postings about Israel and Jewish holidays and messages of Shabbat Shalom. He was also a strong political conservative.

Co-workers described Thalasinos as strongly outspoken about his political views, but “wonderful and compassionate.”

But here’s the kicker: The USA Today report, which buried this detail 31 paragraphs down in a 54 paragraph story about some of the victims, on Tuesday, the day before the massacre, Thalasinos posted on social media that he had received threats in recent days, including one stating he “will die.”

An Associated Press report revealed that a co-worker said that Thalasinos and Farook had argued recently about religion, and Thalasinos complained to her that Farook “doesn’t agree that Islam is not a peaceful religion.”

Thalasinos and his wife are members of the Shiloh Messianic Congregation church in Crestline, California.

If I was a detective assigned to this case, I would be focused like a hawk on the interactions between Thalasinos and Farook. To me, this is clearly what motivated Farook and his wife to murder Thalasinos and the others. But the vast majority of the news stories that I have read about this event do not even mention Thalasinos.

Although the mainstream media does not like to admit it, there are lots of radical Muslims living inside the United States that hate Christians, that hate Jews, and that hate the state of Israel. And since Thalasinos was a Christian, a Jew, and a tremendous supporter of the state of Israel, that made him easy for Farook to hate.

And of course that are lots of other radical Muslims that harbor similar hatred in their own hearts. For example, it has been reported that radical Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan celebrated the terror attacks in Paris on November 13th by setting off fireworks…

Radical Muslims in the Dearborn, Mich., area were celebrating the Nov. 13 Paris attacks orchestrated by ISIS, according to a resident.

“As the news started, I don’t remember exactly what time but it was in the early evening [of the shooting], at first there was a large crack and it startled me, and I’m like ‘okay, what was that?’ and shortly thereafter there were several more fireworks going off,” the Dearborn, Mich., resident reported, who wished not to be identified. “What I found out later [they were] fireworks and in the streets, I did not see the people, however it was several blocks away, within four or five blocks from my house, people were shouting ‘Allah Ackbar.’”

Last month, at two different soccer games in Azerbaijan and Turkey, soccer fans were similarly chanting “Allahu Akbar” and booing during a moment of silence for the victims of the attacks, and in 2001 radical Muslims were celebrating 9/11.

The mainstream media does not like to report things like this because they are not “politically correct”.

Decades ago, journalists often made an honest attempt to report the news, whether it was good or bad. But now so much of our “journalism” is really just agenda-driven propaganda.

And since the fact that a radical Muslim was trying to take revenge against a conservative Messianic Jewish Christian does not “fit the narrative” that the mainstream media is trying to craft around this story, it is almost entirely ignored.

Please share this article with as many people as you can, because the American people deserve the truth.

And please pray for the family of Nicholas Thalasinos and the other families that lost loved ones in this horrifying terror attack. Nobody should ever have to go through what they are going through right now.

Australia To Take Christian Refugees? It’s Hard To Believe…

Could some sense finally be prevailing regarding the Syraian refugee problem? 

Time will tell.

Labor hates the idea because Labor hates Christianity, most of them being leftists at best and more likely than not cultural Marxists.

The ABC seems to hate having to report this, hence their promotion of anything that suggests prioritising Christians is somehow bad. 

Here is what is being reported:

Refugees from Syria pray after arriving on the shores of the Greek island of Lesbos aboard an inflatable dinghy across the Aegean Sea from from Turkey

The Federal Government will announce Australia’s response to the Syrian refugee crisis tomorrow.

“We shouldn’t delay, but nevertheless we do need to be careful and I expect that within 24 hours the Government will have much more to say on this matter,” Prime Minister Tony Abbott told Question Time.

The Abbott Government has flagged the focus of its intake of Syrian refugees will be minorities that are largely Christian.

Government ministers like Malcolm Turnbull have argued for accepting more Syrian Christians, and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has nominated minorities like the Yazidis.

One backbencher told the ABC the message being sent to the Prime Minister by some in the Coalition was clear: “No more Muslim men.”

Nationals MP George Christensen said Christians should be prioritised.

If you’re coming into this country and you harbour a jihadist outlook in life, if you believe that Sharia law should be the law of the land, well, perhaps you’re not welcome in this country.

“I think that any Christian walking around in Syria, and many of those places throughout the middle east at the moment, because of Islamic State, basically has a target on their forehead or a dotted line around their neck where ISIS wants to cut,” he told the ABC.

“So if your life is threatened as their lives are, they should be prioritised.”

Mr Christensen also said the Government must ensure the values of anyone granted protection are in line with the community’s.

“If you’re coming into this country and you harbour a jihadist outlook in life, if you believe that Sharia law should be the law of the land, well, perhaps you’re not welcome in this country,” he said.

“Perhaps you should be seeking safe haven in one of the many Muslim countries that’s around the world.”

It is understood several speakers in this morning’s Government party room meeting mentioned the importance of taking refugees who would “fit in well” with the Australian community.

Labor has joined refugee groups in warning the Government’s emphasis on helping Christian refugees is “dangerous”.

“Being a victim of war doesn’t know a particular religion,” Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said.

“If you’re a woman facing terrible crimes to be committed against you, if you’re a child, a little child, potentially drowning at sea, I’m not interested in their religion, I’m interested in their safety.”

A migration expert, who didn’t want to be named, has told the ABC any Government decision to screen refugees on the basis of religion would be unprecedented.

Mr Abbott is also under increasing pressure to increase this year’s humanitarian intake of 13,750 people, but has put off a decision while the Immigration Minister consults with the United Nations about the best approach.

The fact the Government would pause in light of such a visceral tragedy to suggest Australia should prioritise Christian refugees from Syria speaks volumes, writes Sarah Malik.

MPs, including Tasmanian Brett Whiteley, told the party room community sentiment around the Syrian crisis had “changed” and the public wanted the Abbott Government to act.

The ABC understands some MPs raised the prospect of the Government bringing forward its plan to increase the refugee intake to 18,750, which according to current policy is not due until 2018.

Labor is pushing for an additional intake of 10,000 people, while the Greens want double that number.

Independent Tasmanian MP Andrew Wilkie has called for an extra 30,000 Syrians to be accepted.

It is understood Peter Dutton will brief the national security committee tonight about his meetings in Europe on the issue.

Cabinet will discuss the issue tomorrow morning and there is a suggestion the party room may meet again before an announcement is made.
