Chicago’s Cardinal Tries PC Spin: Let’s Worry About Global Warming, Not Priest Sex Abuse

Published

on

Chicago’s Catholic Cardinal, Blase Cupich, tried to PC his way out of trouble by telling the media that we should not be worrying about priest sex abuse scandals but should instead concern ourselves with global warming and making sure we help illegals who are overrunning our borders.

So, Cardinal Cupich (pronounced “Blaze Supich”) is trying to wave off the left’s favorite topic of those evil, kid-abusing priests — as the left calls them — at the same time he is offering to replace that worry with the left’s even more favorite causes of helping illegal aliens and handwringing about global warming!

How’s that for spin?

That ol’ Cupich should become a magician with that over reaching attempt at misdirection.

Trending: Coroner Saying George Floyd Died of Drug Overdose, Not Police Brutality

Breitbart News has the story:

In a television interview with NBC News, Cardinal Cupich commented on a recent 11-page statement by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, former papal nuncio to the United States, that alleges a series of misdeeds by high-ranking Catholic prelates, including Pope Francis himself.

“The pope has a bigger agenda. He’s gotta get on with other things, of talking about the environment and protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the Church,” Cardinal Cupich said.

“We’re not going to go down a rabbit hole on this,” he added.

That is quite a statement, isn’t it?

Breitbart goes on to note why Cupich might be twisting himself into pretzel shapes to excuse away the Church’s sex abuse problems; it is because Cupich is indebted to the Church’s secretive gay factions.

Cardinal Cupich was also named in the report by Archbishop Viganò, and later released a statement expressing “astonishment” over allegations that former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was behind his appointment as archbishop of Chicago.

In his communiqué, Archbishop Viganò referred to Cardinal Cupich as a man “blinded by his pro-gay ideology” who was appointed as archbishop outside of normal Church protocols because of the powerful backing of three influential cardinals, including McCarrick.

Cardinal Cupich denied being aware of having benefited personally from the patronage of Cardinal McCarrick.

For his part, Cupich tried to wave off any concern over just whom he might be working for.

“As to the issue of my appointment to Chicago as well as the question of episcopal appointments in general, I do not know who recommended me for the Archdiocese of Chicago,” Cupich said, adding, “but I do know that Pope Francis, like his predecessors, takes seriously the appointment of bishops as one of his major responsibilities.”

“Pope Francis has made it clear that he wants pastoral bishops, and I work each day to live up to that expectation in collaboration with many fine lay and religious women and men, my brother priests and brother bishops,” the Cardinal concluded.

Looks like this whole thing has Cupich running for the hills. But you have to hand it to him for that mighty attempt to spin his way out of this mess and for using the left’s rhetoric to do it.

Southern Baptist Church Dropping ‘Southern’ Because of… Slavery

In yet another example of the losing of the American mind, the Southern Baptist Convention is dropping the “Southern” part of its name because it evokes slavery.

Published

In yet another example of the losing of the American mind, the Southern Baptist Convention is dropping the “Southern” part of its name because they say it evokes slavery.

So….now the mere mention of the word “south” is nothing but slavery to these halfwits.

The religious group’s leaders claim their name pays homage to the group’s support for slavery… you know… 150 years ago.

J.D. Greear, current president of the SBC, told the Washington Post that elders have weighed dropping “southern” from their name altogether.

The group now wants to be called the “Great Commission Baptists.”

“Our Lord Jesus was not a white southerner but a brown-skinned Middle Eastern refugee,” Greear said pandering hard to the Black Lives Matter terrorist movement. “Every week we gather to worship a savior who died for the whole world, not one part of it. What we call ourselves should make that clear.”

Per thePost

The convention formed in 1845, splitting from Northern Baptists over Southern support for missionaries who owned enslaved people, and is considered the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, with 14.5 million members. It will continue to legally operate as the SBC, officials said, citing the hefty cost and complexity of a legal name change. But since August, the denomination’s website has declared “We Are Great Commission Baptists,” an alternative moniker that refers to the verses in the New Testament when Jesus commands his disciples to baptize believers in all nations.

The SBC “apologized” for slavery in 1995. Why? Who knows? They didn’t invent it, after all.

Indeed, the religious sect didn’t even form until 1845, more than one hundred years after slavery was introduced to the New World.

These people are embarrassed to be southerners. No, strike that. They are embarrassed to be Americans.

Atheists Pressure Twitter to Ban GOP Senator Because He Posted Bible Quote

An atheist group is putting pressure on Twitter to censor U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy because he dared to post a Bible verse on his feed.

Published

An atheist group is putting pressure on Twitter to censor U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy because he dared to post a Bible verse on his feed.

The group attacked the Louisiana Republican for posting verses from the Book of Psalms, Isaiah, and others, accusing him of “sermonizing.”

For example:

The extremist, anti-Christian group Freedom From Religion Foundation atheist organization, went on the attack in a statement.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is asking a U.S. senator to cease sermonizing on his official social media accounts.

A concerned Louisiana resident contacted FFRF to report that every Sunday, bible verses are posted to Sen. Bill Cassidy’s official government Facebook page.

When a government official uses his elected office, including governmental platforms such as an official Facebook page, to promote his personal religious beliefs, he violates the spirit of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution[.]

There are few groups more anti-Constitution than FFRF, of course. The Constitution says freedom OF religion, not freedom from it, and that includes the right of elected officials to observe their religion in public.

Sen. Cassidy is forcing no one to believe in Christianity by posting a tweet.

These Christian-hating radicals added that Cassidy is “alienating” people who don’t believe in the Bible.

To which we should all say… so what?

If Cassidy wants to “alienate” voters, then he does so at the risk of his own re-election. But there is nothing at all illegal about doing it.

FFRF should be ignored.

The Angel of Liberty, Donald J. Trump vs The Mahdi, Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Published

on

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the proclaimed Mahdi by high ranking Islamic clerics, scholars, government officials, and Middle Eastern military generals, stated on July 17, 2020, that military action by Egypt and the UAE in Libya is illegal and cause for war.  As the violence in the region begins to boil the Mahdi put his intentions of fire into the wind for all to hear.

For background, the Mahdi is the Islamic living incarnation of the Muslim messiah and the leader of the Islamic caliphate and the Army of Islam.  The Mahdī in Arabic means the “guided one” in Islamic eschatology.  The Mahdi is the Islamic messianic deliverer who will fill the earth with justice and equity, restore the true Islamic religion, and usher in a short golden age before the end of the world.

(RECEP TAYYIP ERDOGAN  –  twitter.com)

Respected Christian scholars believe Erdogan is the biblical King of the North, the lawless one, the son of perdition who will bring death and destruction to the Middle East including Mecca.  If they are correct, Erdogan is the Anti-Christ.  The 12th President of Turkey checks all the boxes and his name Recep Erdogan in English gematria is six hundred and sixty-six.

The Red Horse is coming, and soon.

Erdogan has the Middle East right where he wants it.  He is primed for significant military operations with hardened installations in northern Syria and Libya.  The Turkish military buildup in Libya is genuinely concerning for Egypt.  This is why the Egyptian military along with the UAE and Russian paramilitary organization Wagner are conducting operations inside Libyan borders.

There are approximately 12 million Christians left near Israel.  The largest Christian community is in Egypt, the Coptic church, with approximately eight million followers of Yahushua between all dominations.

Erdogan’s mission is to convert or kill Christians in totality through force of blade in the Middle East.  This purge will spill immense blood and the world will be in shock as another earthly woe like COVID is released.  The response in the Middle East to the coming unprecedented spilling of Christian blood will unify all the Muslim populations into a lather of Jihad against all Infidels. For centuries, the Turks are well known for leading vast armies in the persecution and killing of Christian and Jews.

A chilling reminder is that the Mahdi, the seed of Satan, is living in the newest and grandest palace on earth. Revelation 2:12-13, to the letter sent to the Church of Pergamum, which is in modern-day Turkey (Pergamos) states:

“And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.”

Satan’s throne has always been in modern-day Turkey in the land of Eden.  Therefore, the grandest palace on earth from which to rule all Islamic nations must be in Turkey.  Erdogan’s land grab in northern Syria and its axis of evil coalition partner Iran are poised for major movement at any time.

Looking at this from above you would think Erdogan’s next move would be from North Africa. His recent warnings to opposing forces is not a bluff.

Egypt is a great prize and from Libya, the Mahdi’s forces will put the crosshairs of the Islamic caliphate on the largest Christian community in the Middle East the Coptic’s.  This advance will certainly draw Israeli forces to the southern border in strength and may cause a reduction in force in the Golan Heights which is heavily defended with IDF artillery and tanks.

It would make sense Erdogan would enlist the Iranian backed Houthi rebels to hit UAE and Saudi forces out of the east and reduce their ability to react to help Egypt or Mecca.  The Sudan and Iraq many believe will rally with Erdogan and the fall of Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE is highly possible in the near term.

The Red Horse wants to gallop.

Clearly, Erdogan will make a run on Damascus from northern Syria in the months ahead. The goal to purge approximately eight hundred thousand Christians primarily residing in Damascus the land Jesus walked. The same fate is certain for Jordanian and Lebanese Christians with the Mahdi’s ultimate goal to capture Jerusalem and hold the ground of the third temple, the Dome of the Rock.

Ironically, the third temple residing on the temple mount was built by Muslim Turks in the 7th century.  The complex provided Jews, Christian and Muslims worship during different periods since its completion.  Scripture says the Anti-Christ will enter “a holy place” and proclaim himself God in the second half of Tribulation which is fast approaching.

The Mahdi claims Jerusalem, “is the apple of every Muslim’s eye”.  Further evidence of his war on Christianity is the declaration of Erdogan that the Hagia Sophia one of the oldest Christian churches in the world be converted into a mosque only days ago.  Which is why some believe the Dome of the Rock is the biblical third temple.  Erdogan will convert all places of worship to Islam in the region.

There is no doubt about the biblically referenced and ground intelligence available that Erdogan is mustering the unified army of the Islamic caliphate and will start the “great war” very soon.  Do not be surprised to witness a unified Middle East like the EU in the coming months with Erdogan in charge.

Many believe the Turkish Lira is in play here.  How would it be used for this union of middle eastern countries?  Could it be adopted as the reserve currency for Middle Eastern oil exports in the future?  Time will tell, but it would make sense that the Mahdi would want his face on everything including currency for a unified Middle Eastern union.

Enter the Angel of Liberty, Donald J. Trump.

Trump is the only being on earth that stands between the USA and death.  Trump is our David, the great King of America.  Trump has without question proven he can weather the storm of evil thus far. The demon-crats deliver a constant barrage of lies and embellishments on Trump’s perceived faults in his actions or speech through the media.  Trump’s true faults are few and minor in contrast to his ability to push back against the forces of the Mahdi.

In 2019, Trump sent a letter to Erdogan stating he should not be a “fool,” a “tough guy” or a “devil”.  Trump knows who Erdogan is and what the Mahdi represents.  Trump is never subtle and very wise King.

(source twitter.com)

The Don of America, “The Last Trump” unapologetically supports Judeo-Christian beliefs which is evident in his actions and words.   Trump said, “In America, we worship God, not the government.”  When asked point-blank if the USA is a Christian nation he stated, “That’s just the way it is.”  Trump proclaims and does all he can to end abortions, freak show military transgender rules, and other major sins of the Christian faith.  His moral compass for the nation is certainly God-like, and we are grateful for his presidency.

Trump recently stated that “evil people” were tearing down statues and defacing our country’s monuments including statues of “Jesus Christ, Washington, Jefferson” in that order.  He elaborated further by saying he was, “not going to let that happen on his watch.”  When was the last time you heard a President or any world leader say the name, Jesus Christ?   Obama openly mocked Jesus and promoted demonic values while selling out America to non-Christian nations.

Erdogan despises Trump as he knows the one true God, Yahuah, is with him.  Pray that never changes. What will Trump do?  What are they cooking up to remove Trump from office?  Virus vote ballot fraud or insurrection?

There is a long list of possibilities that leads to wild speculation.  The only thing we need not speculate on is that if Trump is not the President of the United States for four more years, the USA is going to feel pain “like never before” and here is why.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan is enemy number one to the United States of America and to the rest of the world.  His grip on Middle East politics is nearly unchallenged.  Additionally, Erdogan’s reach into the United States government is not unknown and his relationship as the “Great Wolf” of Antifa is surprisingly unreported by major news outlets.

Erdogan has met directly or through his proxies with many Democrat congressional members and/or their chief of staff appointees.  Pelosi, the queen of anarchy, along with “The Squad”, a group of the Mahdi’s Muslim bumbling misfits were engaged directly with Erdogan or his proxies in 2016.

There are those on the hill that know many Islamic leaders and scholars have proclaimed Erdogan to be the Mahdi.  He himself has proclaimed himself God in open settings and his ramblings are becoming more throated as time ticks away.

It is Good vs Evil on a biblical level and the world’s last hope, America’s last hope, is that Donald J. Trump is the President of the United States and the Commander and Chief of the world’s best military force.  Yahuah is with our great nation and Donald J. Trump.

In God we trust.

U.S. Supreme Court Hands Trump a Pair of Wins on Religious Freedom Cases

The U.S. Supreme Court handed the Trump administration a pair of important big wins on religious freedom.

Published

on

The U.S. Supreme Court handed the Trump administration a pair of important big wins on religious freedom issues this week.

In one case, Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania, the court ruled 7-2 in favor of a Trump administration regulation that allows employers with religious convictions to opt out of providing contraceptives to their employees, Just The News reported.

In the second, Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Beru, also by a 7-2 margin, the SCOTUS prohibited employment discrimination suits against religious organizations where the supposedly aggrieved employee had a religion-centric job.

These are victories against the Obama’s administration’s anti-American Obamacare rules that forced religious employers to act against their religious beliefs.

Obamacare maintained that religious employers would be mandated to provide free abortion and contraception services. Trump’s regulations expanded the exemptions for those requirements.

The SCOTUS ruled in agreement with the Trump policies saying that religious employers could opt out of the mandates.

In the Our Lady of Guadalupe School school case, the SCOTUS upheld the school’s right to require employees to follow certain religious policies if they also served in religious capacities.

In other words, the SCOTUS agreed that employees have no right to a job that requires religious practices and yet thumb their noses at the very practices the job requires.

The high court agreed with a lower court that religious institutions have a “ministerial exception” from these types of employment discrimination lawsuits.

These are two great victories against rules put in place by Obama to undermine Christian schools, churches, and other religious institutions.

Federal Judge Strikes Down New York Coronavirus Bans On Church Services

On Friday, a federal judge struck down the restrictions banning church services imposed on both New York State and the City of New York.

Published

on

On Friday, a federal judge struck down the restrictions banning church services imposed on both New York State and the City of New York.

The ruling by District Judge Gary Sharpe insisted that the large-scale protests among church goers undermines the claims by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio that the bans on services are “generally applicable.”

Per theWashington Examiner:

“The State argues, in overly-simplistic fashion, that the challenged laws only incidentally impose a burden on religious exercise, and they are neutral and generally applicable, and therefore, only rational basis need be shown, which is self-evident: preventing the spread of COVID-19,” Sharpe wrote. “The State was silent with respect to the mass race protests.”

Sharpe added that de Blasio’s comments with regard to churches, as well as his attitude toward New York Jewish communities, made it difficult for the mayor to make a “legitimate” claim that he is not biased against people of faith while favoring protests.

“Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio could have just as easily discouraged protests, short of condemning their message, in the name of public health and exercised discretion to suspend enforcement for public safety reasons instead of encouraging what they knew was a flagrant disregard of the outdoor limits and social distancing rules,” Sharpe wrote. “They could have also been silent. But by acting as they did, Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio sent a clear message that mass protests are deserving of preferential treatment.”

De Blasio insisted that allowing tens of thousands to protest in the streets was “not the same thing” as allowing church services to continue unimpeded.

The judge found de Blasio’s claims to be absurd.

The ruling came after a large group of Christian and Jewish church officials sued the state and city over the restrictions.

The ruling will immediately prevent the state and city from preventing churches from opening.

1,200 California Pastors Organize to Defy California Gov. Newsom’s Ban on Churches

More than 1,200 California pastors have joined an effort to defy Gov. Gavin Newsom’s coronavirus ban on church services.

Published

on

More than 1,200 California pastors have joined an effort to defy Gov. Gavin Newsom’s coronavirus ban on church services.

The group has pledged to resume in-person church services starting May 31.

Newsom issued his stay-at-home decree to slow the spread of COVID-19 on March 19. Per Newsom’s orders, the state is in stage two of his four phase re-opening plan, but that plan does not include a resumption of church services.

The governor claims that his stage two plan does not allow the re-opening of churches, gyms, libraries, theaters, and other places that might entail large groups on close proximity.

But the pastors are not waiting for Newsom’s approval.

The group’s lawyer said the pastors have signed a “declaration of essentiality,” and will reopen on May 31. They also plan to observe to social distancing guidelines and take other coronavirus precautions.

In a letter to Newsom, attorney Robert Tyler said that the gov’s orders overlook the “essential and critical nature of the services provided by clergy and religious assemblies throughout California.”

“The clergy is convinced that ‘we the people’ are ultimately responsible to protect the individual liberties that may be lost unnecessarily during times of crisis regardless of whether public officials’ actions are well intentioned,” the letter said. “Without the checks and balances of the courts and legislature, the clergy now stand as a counterbalance to unchecked regulatory action.”

But the lawyer warned, “This letter was not sent for the purposes of asking for permission.”

Tyler expects as many as 3,000 churches across California could reopen on May 31 and offer in-person religious services. Sunday, May 31, is the Christian holy day of Pentecost.

Church that Defied Quarantine Razed by Lockdown Loyalists who Leave Message at Scene of the Crime

At a time in which our nation is already deep in the throes a politically divisive election and a global pandemic, nothing good can come from this violent escalation.

Published

on

During this global pandemic, it’s not only the coronavirus that you need to watch out for, as viral and violent vigilantes continue to target those with whom they disagree politically.

In Mississippi, the suspected arson of a small-town church has appears to be the work of lockdown loyalists, who were enraged that parishioners were gathering during this time of quarantine.

A church in Mississippi burned down this week and the incident is now being investigated as arson, the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to CBS News First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs had previously defied stay-at-home orders to open for services, and the church even sued the city of Holly Springs for trying to shut down a Bible study gathering.

And what made residents believe that the arson was the work of extralegal ne’er-do-wells?

Investigators said they found graffiti on the church property reading: “Bet you stay home now you hypokrites.”

Officials in The Magnolia State were shocked and appalled.

 “I am heartbroken and furious,” Governor Tate Reeves tweeted on Thursday, sharing a photo of the now-destroyed First Pentecostal Church. “In Mississippi, a church was just burned to the ground. They had been trying to open services.”

“What is this pandemic doing to us? We need prayer for this country,” his tweet continued.

At a time in which our nation is already deep in the throes a politically divisive election and a global pandemic, nothing good can come from this violent escalation.

News of the arson broke just hours before a declaration by President Donald Trump in which all houses of worship were deemed “essential“, allowing them to remain open during this time of trouble.
