Why women aren't choosing adoption – and how pro-lifers can change that

At 21 years old, Millie Lopus was pregnant and scared. A rising college senior at Loyola University Maryland, she was being pressured into having an abortion by her ex-boyfriend, the father of the child.

But after he drove Millie to a nearby Planned Parenthood to set up an abortion appointment, she recalled having “a silver of grace,” and she “did not set up an appointment that day.”

This is the first laundry with Down syndrome workers in Latin America

Three years ago the Church in Chile launched “Lavandería 21,” a new work inclusion project for people with Downs syndrome, whose results today far exceed what was hoped.

It all began in 2012 when the Archbishop Fernando Natalio Chomali Garib of Concepción learned of this successful initiative in Europe and the United States, and so he decided to organize one in his archdiocese.

Have You Fallen for This Unbiblical Motivational Quip?

The other day a preacher was sharing with a group of people who, for various reasons, were broken. Some were hurting from the effects of divorce or broken homes. Others were damaged due to years of battling sickness and various addictions. Still others had recently lost loved ones and were broken-hearted and searching for a reason. Right in the middle of the speaker sharing some very inspiring words of encouragement, he inserted a well-known phrase which most of us have heard many times throughout our lives, one that seems to become more popular as time goes by. The problem with the statement is that while it is intended to bring a positive note to a negative event or situation, it is a notion that is not only anti-biblical but downright dangerous and almost guarantees continued failure.

Trump appoints Newt Gingrich’s wife as Vatican Ambassador

President Trump has named Callista Gingrich, the wife of former House speaker Newt Gingrich, as the next U.S. ambassador to the Holy See.
Ms. Gingrich, 51, is slated to be the third woman to serve in that role, following Lindy Boggs, a former Congresswoman who held the job from 1997 to 2001, and attorney and Harvard professor Mary Ann Glendon, who occupied the post from 2008 to 2009.

1.5 Million Americans Refuse to Shop at This Discount Retailer

American Family Association (AFA, President Tim Wildmon hand-delivered another 500,000 #BoycottTarget pledge signatures to Target headquarters in Minneapolis, after which AFA leadership briefly met with Target senior management about the retailer's dangerous and misguided restroom and fitting room policy that puts women and children at risk.

Last spring, AFA delivered the first 1 million signatures to Target leaders, who politely but passively listened to AFA's concerns over the policy. The past year since that first meeting has been a dismal one for the retailer, with revenues falling and stock prices plummeting.

'We can't hide behind a wall': Obama addresses huge crowd of Protestant Christians in Germany

Barack Obama has addressed tens of thousands of Protestant Christians in Germany, defending his liberal record and saying: 'In this new world we live in, we can't isolate ourselves – we can't hide behind a wall.'

Blasphemous Comedy Will Make You Sick to Your Stomach

Help us stop Claws from ever airing!

On Sunday, June 11, at 9:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. CT, TNT network will televise an extremely graphic and blasphemous program like none we have ever seen. The trailer appears to be a trashy show about a nail salon and how they launder drug money, but it is so much more. You can be assured: With a MA-LSV rating, it is not appropriate for television. Originally, this so-called "comedy" was to air on HBO with 30-minute episodes, but now it plans to air on TNT for one hour on Sunday evenings when children and teens are still awake. This new program goes where no other show has gone.

For starters, Claws mocks Christianity, insults Catholicism and ridicules people of faith. This dark show can make believers sick to their stomachs with the blasphemous content.

Add your voice today. Your support will help One Million Moms stop this disgraceful new show from entering the American television lineup. If this program airs, then there will likely be copycats on other networks in the near future.

Please sign the Stop Claws Petition to urge TNT to immediately cancel Claws in light of the massive public outcry against this show.

Taiwan court forces ‘gay marriage’ on Asian nation

Taiwan's highest court has imposed homosexuality-based "marriage" on the island nation, instructing parliament that it has two years to pass a law allowing same-sex “marriages” or they will automatically become legal.
The Constitutional Court ruling comes after a pro-“Same-Sex Marriage Act” stalled in the Legislative Yuan, Taiwan’s parliament, after massive opposition protests on the island nation that rivaled recent pro-natural-marriage rallies in France on a per capita basis.

US bishops welcome Trump administration's reprieve for Haitian migrants

The Trump administration’s decision to allow 50,000 Haitian earthquake victims to remain in the United States prompted gratitude from the U.S. bishops’ conference, which stressed the need for continued work to aid Haitians here and in their home country.

“While this extension is helpful, it still leaves many Haitian families in the United States in an insecure and vulnerable position, particularly with respect to ensuring legal work authorization,” Bishop Joe S. Vasquez of Austin, chairman of the U.S. bishops’ migration committee, said May 23.

More people are getting ‘sex change’ surgeries than ever before… but it’s not what you think

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons released its first-ever report tracking national statistics on transgender surgery, increasingly referred to as “gender confirmation surgeries,” that showed close to a 20 percent increase in 2016 over the previous year.

The ASPS, which represents 94 percent of all U.S. board-certified plastic surgeons, revealed that members of the organization performed 3,256 “transmasculine” and “transfeminine” surgeries last year.

“Gender confirmation surgery” covers a wide spectrum of surgery types.
Contrary to public perception, the number of genital operations transforming the male genitalia and reconstructing it into that of a female, or transforming the female genitalia and reconstructing it into that of a male, is miniscule. Only 15 of the more than 3,200 procedures in 2016, or about 0.5 percent, were genital operations, all of which were performed on men seeking to transition. No genital operations were performed on women seeking to transition.

'Please help stop these people starving to death' Archbishop aide pleads for Anglicans to act against famine

A senior adviser to the Archbishop of Canterbury called on UK Christians to take part in this Sunday's Day of Prayer to End Famine as record numbers of people around the world face death by starvation.

Bishop Anthony Poggo, former Bishop of Kajo-Keji in South Sudan and now the Archbishop of Canterbury's Advisor for Anglican Communion Affairs, said more than 20 million people across the globe face starvation.

World Vision UK is among the charities backing the global prayer day, in the hope of mobilising millions of Christians to help prevent mass starvation of children and their communities in Somalia, South Sudan, Yemen and Nigeria.

Thousands of Muslims urged to vote amid concerns about Ramadan election

Thousands of Muslims are being urged to register to vote in messages from imams across the UK at Friday prayers.

Backed by the anti-racism and civil rights campaign, HOPE not hate, the British Muslim Forum (BMF) has asked hundreds of mosques to encourage voter registration in their message at the weekly service.

The One Biblical Sin Even Unbelievers Agree Crosses the Line

American's may have misplaced their collective moral compass on a majority of issues—but apparently extramarital affairs are still off limits.

Rainbow flag flies again at U.S. Embassy in Macedonia

Conservatives who hoped that once Donald Trump became president the U.S. government would stop flying the “rainbow flag” at American embassies abroad, as happened often under former President Obama to mark various LGBTQ events, were disappointed Wednesday.

Mr. Trump, You Must Move Our Embassy to Jerusalem

It's true that, during the presidential campaign, candidate Donald Trump promised that he would move our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

It's true that 60 top Christian leaders, among many others, have called on the president to keep his word.

It's true that the Republican Party platform stated, "We recognize Jerusalem as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state, and call for the American embassy to be moved there in fulfillment of U.S. law."

The One-World Marxist Government Is on the Rise

If the Marxist one-world government eliminates President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence is next in line.

But the enemy hates him, Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin tells Jim Bakker, because he has always stood for Judeo-Christian values.

It's not just Pence who is on the line, though.

"Christianity is in danger of being wiped out in this country," Bakker says.

And if Trump hadn't been elected, the United States would be one step closer to fulfilling end-times prophecy.

Take a look.

This new technology could produce babies from skin cells. And that's bad.

Within the next 10-20 years, a new and controversial fertility technology called in vitro gametogenesis could make it possible to manipulate skin cells into creating a human baby.

However, this groundbreaking research has caused push-back from some critics, like Fr. Tadeusz Pacholczyk, director of education at the National Catholic Bioethics Center, who says IVG would turn procreation into a transaction.

Famed historian: ‘The sexualization of society is the death of society’

Famed Catholic historian Roberto de Mattei says the family is facing a “profound crisis” as the result of a sexual revolution that unleashed its greatest violence in the 1960s, but had its “first decisive moment” in the Protestant Reformation.

“This crisis is founded on the idea that only in the sexualization of society, the revolutionary process can find its fulfillment,” de Mattei, former professor at the European University of Rome and founder of the Lepanto Institute, told participants at the fourth annual Rome Life Forum on Monday.

“The act of procreation is the object of anti-Christian hate, because this affirms that man has an end which surpasses him,” he said.

Woman dies from complications after ‘sex change’ surgery

It Begins: Democrat Calls for President Trump's Impeachment

Facts notwithstanding, the Democrats' attempted "assassination with words" of President Donald Trump took a new turn on Tuesday with the publication of a report claiming the president had attempted to coerce former FBI Director James Comey into dropping his investigation into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

The White House has denied those allegations, which were based entirely on anonymous sources, including memos allegedly written by Comey. House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and the leadership of the Senate Intelligence Committee have demanded that those memos be turned over, if they exist.

In the meantime, however, Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) pressed the attack on the president by calling for his impeachment in a floor speech Wednesday.

"Mr. Speaker, I rise today with a heavy heart," he said. "I rise today with a sense of responsibility and duty to the people who have elected me, a sense of duty to this country, a sense of duty to the Constitution of the United States of America.

"I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to call for the impeachment of the President of the United States of America for obstruction of justice."

You can watch the entire speech in the video clip below.

Vatican bishop predicts Pope will convert Trump…on climate change

Pope Francis says he won’t “proselytize” during his meeting with Trump next week, but one Vatican bishop insists the pope will indeed convert him on one thing: climate change.

Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, the influential and controversial chancellor of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academies of Science and Social Sciences, made the claim in an interview published Monday by ANSA.

"They will come to an agreement, since the president claims to be a Christian, and so he will listen to him,” Sorondo said.

Pope Francis is set to receive Trump the morning of May 24 at the Apostolic Palace.

The two leaders have taken radically divergent positions on climate change.

The pope has made the issue a hallmark of his pontificate, most prominently in his 2015 encyclical Laudato Si’. The pope has strongly endorsed the claim that humans are in large part responsible for climate change.

Trump, on the other hand, is skeptical of manmade climate change. During the presidential campaign, he promised to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord. He signed an executive order in late March undoing much of the environmental legislation put in place by former President Barack Obama. He ordered the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to remove the climate change page from its website. And he appointed an EPA critic, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, to head the agency.

This Is Why North Korea's Latest Missile Launch Is So Concerning

Ex-Witch Reveals Horrifying Details of Growing Up in the Satanic Illuminati

Beth Eckert begins each video teaching explaining how the Lord brought her out of witchcraft, New Age, satanic ritual abuse and more. But now, she's opening up about the details of her testimony.

Eckert's story began before she was even born, with her grandparents embracing the occult secret society behind the Mormon church facade, she says.

Their leader was into "horrific child sacrifice and even child trafficking," Eckert says.

When her grandfather died, Eckert's grandmother became the matriarch of the bloodline and indoctrinated each of her seven children in the ways of the occult.

Eckert says her grandmother believed that what she was doing was good and pure, but in reality, it was all the devil's lies.

Even as an infant, Eckert says she was inducted into the Illuminati/occult. She says she was crowned as the queen of darkness as a baby.

That's when the sexual abuse began. Her own family members claimed it was what God wanted.

"But God did not forsake me even through this. In my crib as I lie sleeping or even waking, Papa would send His angels to sing over me," Eckert says.

By 2 years old, Eckert says she knew she could speak to God.

"Because of my family's belief system, I was told I was a liar and crazy and beaten for it. But that was just the beginning."

Watch the video to see the rest of her story.

Trump, Russia and FBI Investigations: Tell the Truth

Since Adam's fall in Eden, we humans find it easy to fall for lies. Especially in the absence of a moral filter which helps us differentiate between and navigate around what is right and wrong.

Apparently, moral filters were in short supply in Germany in the 1930s when Nazism was on the rise. Adolf Hitler and his minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, launched an insidious campaign against the Jews. They spread their evil telling despicable lies blaming Jews for every malady on the planet.

Hitler's "big lie" campaign included the idea that if a big lie is repeated frequently enough, it will be believed.

Middle East's first ordained female minister denied entry for a trip to the UK over fears she won't return home

Tony Perkins: 5 Ways Progressives Have Intensified Their War on Our Values and Freedom

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins wants to know how the year 2017 will be remembered.

"How will we remember the year 2017? What will we say?" he asked in a recent email to supporters obtained by Charisma Caucus. "'We had our chance—and we seized the day. We did it.' Or, 'We missed our chance. We failed.'?"

Perkins wrote that with the combination of the Trump administration and the Republican-controlled Congress, plus an overwhelming majority of "friendly" GOP-controlled state legislatures, 2017 is the year "we can truly turn America around." But, after the first four months of the year, it's become obvious that turning things around won't be a simple process.

Muslim cleric asks if FIFA could ban sign of the cross in football games

A Muslim cleric has asked if FIFA could ban players from making the sign of the cross in celebaration during football matches.

Mohammed Alarefe, a professor and cleric from Saudi Arabia, was widely criticised when he asked if the sporting association disallowed making the symbol of the cross on one's chest in a match, according to the Daily Mail.

Alarefe tweeted on May 5: 'I've seen video clips of athletes, soccer players running, shooting and when they win they make the symbol of the cross on their chests and my question is if FIFA's rules forbid this.'

The tweet drew a range of responses online, with many reportedly criticising the suggestion, saying it was divisive.

Others pointed out that many players appear to bow in Muslim prayer when they kneel to the ground in celebration of scoring a goal.

One user, Sultan Alhusni, tweeted about an Egyptian player, Mohamed Salah, who plays for Italian club Roma. He wrote: 'I can't lie. Mohamed Salah and others kneel to pray when they score a goal and no one punishes them. Leave the sport to those who deal with it.'

Another said: 'Even Muslim players celebrate their own way, FIFA brings us together'.

Alarefe is a professor of religion at King Saud University in Riyadh, and has 17.4 million Twitter followers. He does not appear to have commented on the matter beyond his initial tweet.

Report: President Trump to Announce Israeli-Palestinian Peace Talks During Israel Visit

The London-based Arabic daily newspaper Al-Hayat reported Wednesday that President Donald Trump will announce the resumption of direct peace negotiations between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas during the American leader's visit to Israel this month.

A U.S.-Palestinian committee was already preparing for a second meeting between Abbas and Trump, who met for the first time May 3 at the White House, Palestinian officials told Al-Hayat.

The Palestinian officials said they anticipate Trump will announce direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, which will take place during the next year.

In his meeting with Trump at the White House, Abbas reportedly requested that the renewed peace talks be based upon the parameters of his negotiations with former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert nearly a decade ago. Abbas reportedly presented Trump with maps and documents detailing the 2008 plan involving Olmert.

In the 2008 proposal, Olmert offered a near-complete Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem and also suggested placing the Old City of Jerusalem under international control.

Tom Fitton Breaks Down Sally Yates' Testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton appeared Tuesday morning on the Sirius/XM "Breitbart News Daily" program to discuss former acting Attorney General Sally Yates' testimony before a subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding her involvement in the eventual firing of former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

Here's what he had to say about her testimony and its impact on the as-yet unfounded liberal narrative that Russia directly colluded with President Donald Trump's campaign to ensure he won the 2016 election:

Gay teens make up 92 percent of HIV cases in their age group

More than 9 in 10 new HIV cases among young men and boys ages 13 to 24 in the U.S. occur among homosexuals and bisexuals, according to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The April 25 CDC report, “HIV Among Gay and Bisexual Men,” offers stark evidence of the extreme health risks associated with male homosexual sex, in particular receptive anal sex. Below are some of its findings:

— Gay and bisexual men aged 13 to 24 accounted for an estimated 92 percent of new HIV diagnoses among all men in their age group and 27 percent of new diagnoses among all gay and bisexual men;

— Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men made up an estimated 2 percent of the population, but 55 percent of people living with HIV in the United States in 2013;

— From 2005 to 2014, HIV diagnoses decreased in the United States by 19 percent overall but increased 6 percent among all gay and bisexual men;

— 1 in 6 gay and bisexual men will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime, including 1 in 2 black gay and bisexual men, 1 in 4 Hispanic gay and bisexual men, and 1 in 11 white gay and bisexual men;

— Nearly 1 in 7 gay and bisexual men living with HIV are unaware they have it;

— Anal sex is the riskiest type of sex for getting or transmitting HIV. Receptive anal sex is 13 times as risky for acquiring HIV as insertive anal sex.

'Embryo jewelry' a sign we've taken the wrong path, IVF critic says

For one critic, a report that IVF-conceived embryos are being cremated and turned into jewelry for their mothers shows the basic problem with the artificial creation of human embryos.

“I have no words. I have no category for who would think this would be something good to do,” said Jennifer Lahl, the founder and president of the California-based Center for Bioethics and Culture.

“It’s so undignified that these embryos have been destroyed to become jewelry,” she told CNA. “I thought, ‘My gosh, it really has hit rock-bottom’.”

Satanic Temple Desecrates Veterans' Memorial With Occult Monument

The Satanic Temple is set to erect an occult monument at a veterans' memorial in Minnesota.

The black steel cube sided with pentagrams will stand opposite a statue of a soldier praying over a cross-marked grave. The installation will likely occur in June.

The memorial space in Belle Plaine is a public space utilized as a limited time open forum. Any sculpture or art that honors veterans is permitted, provided the group or artist applies through the city.

"The Belle Plaine city council was professional and respectful at all times. They adopted a clear set of guidelines which they adhered to. There was no push-back," Satanic temple founder Lucien Greaves explained.

Despite the city's approval, the community pushed back against the installation.

"These soldiers fought for our country, and you are going to put a satanic thing next to it," community member Jessica Ellman says. "It's like you are mocking them. I'm not a fan"

Baby born alongside the IUD meant to destroy him: Here’s his incredible story

Science, compassion, adoption – why Mike Pence says 'life is winning' in America

“Life is winning in America,” U.S. Vice President Mike Pence told attendees at a pro-life gala on Wednesday evening in Washington, D.C.

“Life is winning through the steady advance of so many areas of science” that provide a glimpse at the unborn baby in the womb, the vice president said, “through the generosity of millions of adoptive families,” and “through the compassionate caregivers and volunteers at crisis pregnancy centers and faith-based organizations, who minister to women in cities and towns across America.”

This Unhealthy Mentality Gives the Enemy More Power in Your Life

How did we come to be like this? Have you ever thought about that? In so many ways. both society at large and our personal lives bear only a slight resemblance to how God originally intended us to be and live. We are too often broken, sick and miserable. That may sometimes be the case even for those of us who are committed believers in Jesus.

We hold on to our wounds, our destructive behaviors, our insistence on doing life our own way, and our world continues to become darker as a result. That's a picture of sin, and it causes us trouble—sometimes right away, sometimes in the future and sometimes in ways we don't even realize.

Muslim Baby Boom: Christians Should Make Babies and Evangelize

A baby boom on the horizon could radically change our world. Here's another connection between family and faith explained.

It's been said that demography is destiny. If true, and if current trends continue, then the future will look very Muslim indeed.

According to the respected Pew Research Center, as reported by Christianity Today, between the years 2030 and 2035, for the first time in history, the total number of babies born to Christian mothers will be fewer than those born to Muslim mothers. While the difference may seem relatively small — 225 million births for Muslims to 224 million for Christians, it reflects a demographic pivot that, in just 20 years, could change the world.

Globally, Muslims and Christians, in that order, have more babies on average than any other group.

With Trump set to visit Israel, is Palestinian militant group Hamas finally coming in from the cold?

After years of internal discussion and external criticism, it could, just possibly be the moment that Hamas began to come in from the cold.

The Palestinian armed group has finally 'modernised' its position and, compromising with Israel's existence, dropped its historic call for the destruction of the Jewish state, while distancing itself from the Islamist group the Muslim Brotherhood.

Challenge to CofE as GAFCON Anglicans appoint 'missionary bishop'

The Global Anglican Futures Conference – GAFCON – is to appoint a 'missionary bishop' for conservative Christians in Europe, bypassing Anglican Churches in England and Scotland.

The move was announced Saturday in a communiqué from GAFCON'S meeting of conservative primates in Lagos, Nigeria. Made up of nine Anglican provinces and five 'branches', the organisation claims to represent the majority of the world's Anglicans. It was set up in alarm at what founders saw as the increasing acceptance of homosexuality among Western, more liberal Churches, and is adamantly opposed to any compromise on the issue.

The Prophetic Reason Your Path May Be Diverging

Mexican beauty queen makes 'radical' move to religious life

Esmeralda Solís Gonzáles is a young Mexican woman who was crowned last year as a beauty queen in her native town – and now she's joined the Poor Clare Missionaries of the Blessed Sacrament.

Twenty-year old Gonzáles has watched her story go viral over the last week on social media over a post on the Miss Mexico Facebook page.
