Neo-Communism is sweeping the world.
At the same time he is shutting down TV and radio stations, Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez attended the Venice Film Festival with his entourage, to be praised by those who haven’t suffered under his dictatorial regime. A big splash in the news media followed this despicable event.
Several people in the Democratic-Socialist power structure have decided that the only way they can convert America into a totalitarian gulag is to destroy the Church, the People of God. And, too many of the sheeple have fallen for their nefarious plans.

Needed: A Patriotic Assimilation Policy
By John Fonte, Ph.D
In America, today as in the past, immigration and assimilation are bound together like Siamese twins. It makes no sense to talk about immigration without talking about assimilation, nor does it make sense to develop an immigration policy without an assimilation policy. The United States is the most successful immigration country in the history of the world for one basic reason⎯the triumph of patriotic assimilation⎯the assimilation of immigrants as loyal members of the American body politic.
God calls you to eternal life in “the city on a hill” in Matthew 5:14. Why would you or I want to live in a city on a hill?
Because everyone therein manifests the fruit of the Holy Spirit: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
The fruit of the Holy Spirit comes from knowing the true freedom of loving Jesus Christ and being filled with His Holy Spirit. When our moribund flesh comes alive in His Holy Spirit, we proclaim the Holy Spirit’s power by demonstrating the fruit of the Holy Spirit and the real unity in His Holy Spirit, which is a Christian worldview.
So, what is a Christian worldview?

For a long time now we have been gravitating toward 1940s movies even though most of them were made before we were born. We like movies from this era because they tend to be more moral than many earlier and later movies. For one thing, there are consequences for actions. For another, successful, strong, and moral women are presented as the norm, especially during the
There used to be a phrase for people who became too obsessed with sex and sexual activities, especially bizarre, fringe behavior or unrestrained promiscuity. We called them “sex maniacs.”
That’s clearly what Democratic Party leaders like President Obama and their allies in the mass media and the educational establishment have become in the wake of the “Sexual Revolution” of the 1960s. Not content with dismantling the United States Constitution and Moses and Jesus Christ’s traditional moral hold on the body politic, they have for decades been bullying America’s citizens into accepting not only promiscuous pre-marital sex but also more and more extreme sexual behaviors.

America is in a World War
The United States is at war with the rest of the world and our central government has barely mentioned it to us. We have no plan for winning the war, and even worse, we are losing battle after battle and things are going rapidly downhill. Communicating in Newspeak, the central government is behaving as if all’s well. It is not. Our nation has entered what pilots fear and are carefully trained to avoid: a graveyard spiral, only this one is economic.
At stake is our way of life, standard of living, our children’s futures and our national sovereignty. Instead of targeting our external enemies, an Orwellian Washington chooses to attack and diminish our own institutions and place the jackboot of central control on more and more of our throats every day.

Every word you say and every action you take is a reflection of how you understand the world you live in, your worldview. To understand America, you must have some appreciation for freedom. Our Constitution supposedly guarantees freedom of speech, religion, the press, assembly, and gun ownership. It implies the freedom to own property, pursue the occupation of your choice, and move freely about the nation. We think of freedom as a fundamental part of being American.

If you believe homosexuality is morally wrong — that God himself has condemned the behavior — then you’re a “homophobe.” You don’t have to be afraid of homosexuals. You don’t have to be afraid of being infected with AIDS. You’re a “homophobe” if you don’t condone gay sex.

I was brought up by a strong and wonderful single mother (as the result of a divorce). I understand that non-traditional families exist and can contain exemplary family members, however, the gold standard in family structure is a father and mother, who love each other, raising their own children. My mother would have heartily agreed.
The July 20 issue of TV Guide announced the Disney Channel’s plans to feature a lesbian couple on a 2014 episode of their children’s sitcom, GOOD LUCK CHARLIE. The article calls the episode “groundbreaking” and refers to Disney as “testing the water” with content that many Americans would label as immoral.
Once upon a time, I had the opportunity to teach in Salem, Mass., made famous centuries ago by its witch trials. Twenty years ago, the town government of Salem decided that they would trumpet witchcraft to promote tourism. Now, Salem celebrates Halloween for more than a month. Some famous churches have been converted into museums and amusements of horror and fright. Other churches have been converted into wiccan, Goth and necromancer places of worship. (The wiccans, by the way, do not like the necromancers because they need to kill to worship death.) The governor of Massachusetts has even named the state’s official witch.

My fellow demons, it brings me great pleasure to stand before you with such good news. After a long and arduous battle on many fronts in America, I am delighted to confirm that we are making great strides on the political and economic fronts. As gratifying as this is, nothing brings me more joy than to report the verifiable attrition and conversion to socialism of the next generation of America’s Christians.

Jesus Christ came to set the captives free. He is the chief cornerstone of our freedom.
Because each one of us has fallen short in many different ways that require judgment from God for the things we’ve done – lying, cheating, coveting, stealing, and so forth. And, as we know, deep in our hearts, the penalty is greater than we want to pay.

In films such as Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Social Network, Hollywood is showing secular capitalism changing America’s motto to “In Greed We Trust.” In the summer of 2010, the US Congress passed a twenty-three-hundred-page act to regulate the financial sector. This act is an admission of the massive corruption in that sector of the economy. Wall Street’s corruption, however, has yet to become a part of Main Street. The traditional morality of the West, easily evident in small towns and villages is incomprehensible to most non-Western visitors.

There is a strong link between faith, the Christian faith in particular (in all of its various stripes), and doing good—including feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and providing shelter. It has been true in the past, and it is true in the present.
This is a mandate that comes from Jesus Himself, and the impact of Christian charity on civilization has been enormous and positive. What the church does, it will continue to do, and should do without any assistance from the government. In some cases, it does this despite resistance from the government.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Many R-rated movies have sexually explicit material in them. What was once reserved for pornographic magazines is now on the huge silver screen. When viewers are repeatedly subjected to pornography or even sexually explicit R-rated movies, detrimental results can occur in a persons sexuality and marriage. The following shocking article demonstrates that homosexuality and pornography are close bed fellows. Pornography does more than degrade women. It can condition men to accept homosexual behaviors. Hence, with a surge in sexually explicit images in R-rated movies, this article is a sounding call for discerning viewing. This article should be for adult reading only. Dr. Judith Reisman is the author of the excellent and extremely important books: Kinsey, Sex & Fraud and Soft Porn Plays Hardball.
A New Evil Empire
Christians in Russia are expressing their shock at how America has now become the New Evil Empire, promoting abortion and privileges for perverts, with their aggressive pro-homosexual agenda, bullying African governments to legalise abortion and homosexuality, and sending generous aid to radical Middle Eastern governments which severely persecute the Christian Church.

We live in an age unique in human history. Per capita incomes have never been higher, lifespans have never been longer, and people are better fed and educated than ever before. At the same time, birth rates have fallen to historically low levels. In fact, they have fallen to levels so low that they will extinguish whole populations unless something is done.

Abandon all hope, you who seek Dante here.
By Stephen W. Smith
Although skillful and clever throughout, Dan Brown’s Inferno is finally more of a gateway argument on behalf of population control than a simple thriller about Dante, Florence, or bioterror. Considered as a whole, the novel serves as something like a “gateway to the Posthuman age,” as the seeming villain of the novel says when describing the goal of his plot. While the gateways in Dante lead either to Hell and self-knowledge or to Mount Purgatorio and a climb to the stars, this novel leads the reader into a brave new world of genetic engineering and suggests that we embrace the new means required to “save the world,” even if we find them “uncomfortable.” Read MoreAn Inferno for Our Times?

My friend Joseph Tson, from Romania, was one of the instrumental pastors in delivering Romania from Communism in the 1980s. He said that for years on Sunday in his Evangelical Church in Romania, he preached Jesus while the Romania equivalent of the KGB sat in the front row, monitoring his sermons. He always wondered why they did not care that he was preaching salvation in Jesus Christ, until he realized that the totalitarian Marxist-Leninist state had trespassed, encroached, and assumed those charitable and ecclesiastical activities that God had delegated to the governance, polity and duty of church and family, such as: education, welfare, care for the sick, care for the elderly, and marriage. So, when he started preaching the entire Gospel of the Kingdom of God, he was arrested immediately, was tortured and then had a miraculous release, because he didn’t care if he lived or died as long as he was proclaiming biblical truth and God’s commands which was Jesus Christ and his Kingdom come.

One of the great concerns in America today is the 22.1 percent unemployment rate among young black males. It’s nearly double the 11.5 percent unemployment rate for young white males. Cries go out in the media to spend more on education or to use more affirmative action, but the real change needed is in the media itself. Thus, it’s become abundantly clear that America’s poverty culture is fostered by the mass media.

Exclusive: David d’Escoto asks why conservatives continue to turn kids over to the left. Most likely you’ve heard Einstein’s definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Nowhere is this more obvious today than with political and religious conservatives, the so-called right. What do I mean? Next month the right will send millions of their own children to public schools that are literally controlled by the left – meaning that it is only the liberals’ “values,” “morals” and curriculum that are taught in our government schools.

Sometime during the last half-century, someone stole our culture. Just 50 years ago, in the 1950s, America was a great place. It was safe. It was decent. Children got good educations in the public schools. Even blue-collar fathers brought home middle-class incomes, so moms could stay home with the kids. Television shows reflected sound, traditional values.

This Friday, April 19, 2013 is the National Day of Silence which is sponsored by the homosexuality-affirming advocacy group, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). GLSEN’s raison dêtre is to transform the moral and political views of our nation’s children through our publicly subsidized government schools. The Day of Silence is GLSEN’s central socio-political tool for achieving that purpose.
GLSEN urges students in high schools and middle schools to refuse to speak for an entire day—including during class—in order to draw attention to the plight of those students who are purportedly silenced and bullied because of their homosexuality or cross-dressing.

I am very much aware of the historical continuity extending over four centuries, during which the position of the Church of Scotland has been recognised in constitutional law and confirmed by successive Sovereigns.

[muted laughter] It has remained close to its roots and has inspired a commitment to service from all people.

The recent box office mega-hit ‘The Hunger Games’ caused a groundswell of controversy with kid-on-kid violence being a central element of the plot. Many commentators and concerned citizens spoke out to voice their belief that the visual theatrical depiction of kid-on-kid violence would have a much more detrimental societal effect than simply reading about it.
While it is much too early to quantitatively prove or disprove those assertions, we are able to measure a broad range of reactions among ‘Hunger Games’ movie watchers and ‘Hunger Games’ book readers.
