Well Choreographed Chaos in Iraq

  Fox News _ “Earlier this week, one Iraqi in the area cried to the world, `There is no one coming to help.’ Well, today, America is coming to help,” Obama said. “We’re also consulting with other countries — and the United Nations — who have called for action to address this humanitarian crisis.” _ (emphasis added) The “humanitarian crisis” is taking place in Iraq and is the result of the cumulative barbaric genocidal acts of  another Islamic extremist group calling themselves ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) or IS (Islamic State) against non-Muslims and Muslim whose belief in Islam […]

Freedom From Religion Foundation – How Far Will They Go In Their Attack On Christianity?

I know this isn’t a popular view to hold in today’s America, but it seems to me religion is under an ever-increasing pressure and attack in America. Specifically, Christians are under attack. I know some atheists will deny that statement, but I believe it can be upheld by looking at the facts. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is running rampant with the lawsuits it is filing. Not necessarily in this order or in order of importance, the FFRF has decided the IRS hasn’t been doing its due diligence when it comes to policing churches. They also have decided that […]

A Different Model for Achieving Social Change

As many of you are aware, I am “semi retired” from blogging. My name has shown up in the byline quite a bit over the last few days because our contributor, Don, was initially on vacation, and is now feeling under the weather. So, it’s up to me to carry the Conservative Hideout torch, so to speak, until Don is up on his feet again.   A few weeks ago, I published a post regarding the idea of ” letting it burn.” In that post, I suggested that there’s another way to achieve change. Today, I’ll lay that out for […]

Christian Divorce Rate Far Lower Than Previously Thought

Critics of Christian morality have more facts to ignore as of late.  For years now, it has been said that the divorce rate among Christians was, for all practical purposes, identical to the general population.  However, a recently revealed study of eight years shows that the divorce rate for Christians is far less that previously thought.  CBN has more… ATLANTA — It’s long been believed that half of America’s marriages end in divorce and the problem is just as bad in the Church as the rest of the country. But when Harvard-trained researcher Shaunti Feldhahn tried to find the actual […]

The Freedom From Religion Foundation Helps Pastors Fight the IRS!

Recently, The Freedom From Religion Foundation touted an agreement that they had reached with the IRS in order to persecute Christians.   Here is more from one of their own press releases… July 17, 2014 The Freedom From Religion Foundation and the Internal Revenue Service reached an agreement today (July 17) that resolves for the time being an ongoing federal lawsuit over non-enforcement of restrictions on political activity by tax-exempt religious organizations and churches. “This is a victory, and we’re pleased with this development in which the IRS has proved to our satisfaction that it now has in place a […]

Easter 2014: He is Risen!

Matthew 28:1-7 (New American Standard) Jesus Is Risen! 1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. 2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. 3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4 The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. 5 The angel said to the women, “Do […]

Amazing Feats of Dexterity: MSNBC Host Chris Hayes Conducts Interview with his foot in his mouth.

Nevada Assembly Woman Michelle Fiore was at the Bundy ranch in Nevada and happened to be interviewed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes. Folks, let me tell you – this was better than any episode of Celebrity Death Match. Fiore was fierce, remained composed and never once took the bait of the left’s talking points. Despite Hayes’ repeated attempts to steer the conversation towards painting rancher Cliven Bundy as a criminal, Fiore stood her ground and gave better than she got. She stuck to her original premise that not only is the amount allegedly owed in question, and additionally where does […]

Sunday Morning (On Monday): When Good is Evil, and Evil is Good

I was reading about how God created the heavens, the earth, and humans last night and this morning. I couldn’t help but think how humans have corrupted the good that God created; God himself looking upon His creation … “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good” thinking in His heart that all was good. And all was good for a space in time. God created a man and decided it wasn’t good for the man to be alone. So, out of the man God created a woman to be with him. Adam proclaimed, […]

NORKS to Execute 33 Christians: Leftists Rejoice

I imagine that there are at least a few US leftists laughing up a storm over the fact that the NORKS are executing 33 Christians for being Christians… Brutal North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has ordered the execution of 33 Korean Christians for setting up 500 underground churches with South Korean Baptist missionary Kim Jung-wook. The Daily Mail reports that Kim Jong-un has ordered the execution over the suspicion that this small group of Christians were “attempting to overthrow” his regime, thereby undermining North Korea’s doctrine of “juche” — where decisions for the country are made en masse and to “prevent the influx of […]

Story Update: Christian Home Schooling Family Allowed to Remain in US!

In a complete reversal, the US Government is now permitting the Romeike family to stay in the US, rather than face deportation and prompt arrest in their native Germany.  The family fled their native land due to their Nazi era law that forces all children to be indoctrinated by public schools.  As we covered late last night, they family seemed doomed by the Obama administrations blatant hostility to Christians.  The Blaze has the latest developments… A post on the HSLDA’s Facebook wall signed by the organization’s chairman, Michael Farris, explains the change: Today, a Supervisor with the Department of Homeland […]

Obama Backed Syrian Rebels Lays Siege to Christian Village, Beheads Children

In another example of the anti-Christian violence that the left denies (or applauds), Syrian rebels Al Qaeda, backed by Barak Obama, laid siege to  a Christian village.  In the resulting carnage, the villagers were slaughtered, including the beheading of children.  The Daley Gator has the reports from Syria… Obama’s proxy war on Christianity continues in Syria as his Al Qaeda allies ruthlessly attack and kill innocent unarmed civilians. They are even beheading children. That’s a manly and moral group Hussein is supporting. Those kids must have had it coming. Way to take the moral high ground, Obama! In typical Hussein […]

Socialism And Communism Are Contrary To Christianity

Fr. Marcel Guarnizo is a friend of Ed Morrissey who gives a response refuting the popular myth that the Church’s “social justice” mission is compatible with Socialism and Communism. Rev. Marcel Guarnizo counters the belief that the ideas of socialist revolution and Communism have a place at the table with Christianity.  Many, even in the Catholic Church, believe that Christianity shares some ideals with the socialist revolution.  It seems to them that Socialism, Communism, and Christianity all help the poor. Father Guarnizo outlines and exposes the errors of Communism.  Father Marcel Guarnizo writes: “The difference between the two was captured well by a joke […]

Faith in Action: Orthodox Priests Stand Between Protestors and Police

The Associated Press -Orthodox priests pray as they stand between pro-European Union activists and police lines in central Kiev, Ukraine, early Friday, Jan. 24, 2014. A top Ukrainian opposition leader on Thursday urged protesters to maintain a shaky cease-fire with police after at least two demonstrators were killed in clashes this week, but some in the crowd appeared defiant, jeering and chanting “revolution” and “shame.” (AP Photo/Sergei Grits) We are called to be peacemakers, and these priests have taken that, and put it into action. These priests are standing between police, and protesters in Ukraine. In a world where so […]

Priest Found Dead, With Message, “Christian Scum” Left on Body

I know what you’re thinking, besides the fact that it’s terrible.  You’re likely thinking that this happened in Egypt, or perhaps was done by Obama’s Syrian Allies Al Qaeda.  But, it’s even worse.  This not only occurred in the UK, but assaults on Christian Clergy are an increasingly common event in that nation.  Shoebat has more… The heresies of atheism and Islam are flooding England, and there are consequences to this, consequences that are both innate and inevitable to the dangerous acceptance of religious tolerance: violence toward Christianity. In England, the body of the Rev John Suddards in Thornbury who […]

Andrew Cuomo: Christians, Gun Owners Have ‘No Place’ in NY

Apparently, according to Andrew Cuomo, NY citizenship require you to be a gay, baby killing,  gun grabber!  That’s how I read his recent statements.  Life News has more… As reported today: Governor Cuomo is issuing a warning to what he refers to as the more conservative arm of the Republican party – you’re not welcome in the state of New York. Moderate Republicans, or those most willing to capitulate to Cuomo’s own extreme agenda, still have the welcome mat rolled out. Here’s Cuomo during a Friday morning conversation on the Capitol Pressroom (H/t Times Union): You have a schism within […]

Cookie Cutter Catholicism Revealed At Fox News

Cafeteria Catholicism exposed!! Catholics must adhere to doctrinal beliefs. The belief that marriage is solely between a man and a woman and the belief that the use of contraception is intrinsically evil are doctrinal issues, and are NOT matters of prudential judgment.  It ticks me off how utterly smug, arrogant, and disrespectful Sean Hannity is to Fr. Euteneuer, a priest. Original Post: TeresAmerica

Jesus Isn’t Allowed in School, but Islam is …

In my previous post, “Jesus is not allowed in school“, we saw the perfect example of how Christians and in particular Christian children are being bullied by the benevolent American education system. Time and again we get the “separation of church and state” line of crap. However it’s obvious that only applies to the Christian church or any mention of Jesus Christ. It doesn’t matter if it’s Christmas or Easter … Christian kids are not allowed to mention the name of Christ. (for the sake of ignorant liberals: Christmas is the celebration of Christ’s birth. Easter is the celebration of Christ’s […]

#TrestinsFast Wrapup (Hopefully): Revisiting the Hate

When Trestin Meacham contacted me about his plan to fast, we discussed that he would generate the typical hate fest that comes with standing up to the “gay mafia,” as I’ve come to refer to it.  We agreed that his fast, while raising awareness as to the political/legal plight, would also give us the opportunity to expose the real hate: the hate coming from the homosexual community. I’ve covered that for several years now… This is the Tolerance of the Left: Intimidation, Harassment, and Threats The Case of the GEICO Pitchman: How Quickly the Left Forgets, or do They? In […]

#TrestinsFast Update: Appears on Podcast, The Huffington Post has Taken Notice, and Liberal “Tolerance” Erupts

Our friend, Trestin Meacham, continues his fast in support of traditional marriage.  He recently appeared on a podcast which is available here.  And, he has been noticed nationally, at least by the Huffington Post… It seems like things may have reached a whole new level of crazy in Utah. Trestin Meacham, a 35-year-old Utah man, is allegedly refusing to eat anything until the state nullifies its recent decision to allow same-sex couples to get married. At the time the above video was released, Meacham had reportedly gone 12 days without food — surviving only on water and an occasional vitamin […]
