CNS News | President Barack Obama opened his second inaugural address by quoting the statement from the preamble to the Declaration of Independence that all men “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights.”

He then went on to say that if men were in fact created equal, then homosexual “love” must be equal as well.
“What makes us exceptional, what makes us American,” said Obama, “is our allegiance to an idea articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’”
“Today we continue a never-ending journey to bridge the meaning of those words with the realities of our time,” said Obama. “For history tells us that while these truths may be self-evident, they’ve never been self-executing; that while freedom is a gift from God, it must be secured by His people here on Earth.”
Worthy News | Iran has launched the “systematic persecution and prosecution” of “Protestants and Christian converts” with a Muslim background, closing churches, detaining believers and threatening some with execution, a new report claims.
The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran, a major network of Iranian activists, said believers “face severe restrictions on religious practice and association, arbitrary arrests and detentions” for practicing their faith, “and violations of the right to life through state execution for apostasy and extrajudicial killings.”
It’s extensive report, ‘The Cost of Faith: Persecution of Christian Protestants and Converts in Iran’, cites cases of 31 Christians throughout Iran from April 2011 to July 2012, including Farshid Fathi, a Christian leader from Tehran who was detained in December 2010 as part of “a Christmas crackdown” on Christians.
The 33-year-old Fathi is serving six years imprisonment on charges of “acting against national security,” “contact with enemy foreign countries,” and “religious propaganda.”
XP Media | Not satisfied with the recent defeat of motions to divest from companies doing business with Israel and to ostracize Israel at their national forums, mainline Protestant church leaders sent a letter on October 8, 2012 to members of the U.S. Congress accusing Israel of human rights abuses, asking the U.S. lawmakers to “reevaluate unconditional” military assistance to the Jewish state, and calling for an investigation into possible violations by Israel of the U.S. Foreign Assistance Act and the U.S. Arms Export Control Act.

Such violations would render Israel ineligible for U.S. military aid. The letter also emphasized “a troubling and consistent pattern ofdisregard by the government of Israel for U.S. policies that support a just and lasting peace,” citing Israel’s failure to halt settlement activity despite repeated U.S. government requests.
The letter was signed by Rev. Gradye Parsons, Stated Clerk of the General Assembly Presbyterian Church (USA); Mark S. Hanson, Presiding Bishop Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; Bishop Rosemarie Wenner, President, Council of Bishops United Methodist Church; Peg Birk, Transitional General Secretary, National Council of Churches USA; Shan Cretin, General Secretary, American Friends Service Committee; J Ron Byler, Executive Director, Mennonite Central Committee U.S.; Dr. A. Roy Medley, General Secretary, American Baptist Churches, U.S.A.; Rev. Geoffrey A. Black, General Minister and President, United Church of Christ; Rev. Dr. James A. Moos, Executive Minister, United Church of Christ, Wider Church Ministries Co-Executive, Global Ministries (UCC and Disciples); and others.
The statement “urge[s] Congress to undertake careful scrutiny to ensure that our aid is not supporting actions by the government of Israel that undermine prospects for peace.” It continued: “We urge Congress to hold hearings to examine Israel’s compliance, and we request regular reporting on compliance and the withholding of military aid for non-compliance.”
This visceral contempt for the Jewish state, rooted in a secular leftist ideology mixed with a measure of replacement theology, prompted the writing of this hypocritical letter and various other attempts to boycott, divest, and place sanctions against Israel for alleged wrongdoings against Palestinians.

With flattering photographs, the magazine edited by Obama fan Tina Brown holds out hope that in his second Inaugural Address, Obama can inspire and show that he can also lead.

Christian Post | Renowned pastor and preacher John Piper shared about his “only and the most extraordinary” experience exorcizing a demon in his early ministry years, sharing details of dealing with a possessed female college student.
The reformed theologian who recently stepped down as senior pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minn., shared “a rare story” from long ago when some college students had called him at night saying they had cornered a girl they said was demon-possessed in a video posted on the Desiring God website.
When Piper and an associate reached the students’ room, they saw a young woman in her 20s who looked “very hard and angry and dark in her face.” The students told Piper it was not her – not her voice, not her face – and she was possessed.
Daily Mail | The Sandy Hook gunman worshiped the devil and had an online page dedicated to Satan, a former classmate revealed, as his childhood barber recalls Adam Lanza never spoke and would stare at the floor every time he had his hair cut.
Lanza’s worshiping page had the word ‘Devil’ written in red, Gothic-style letters against a black background, Trevor L. Todd told The National Enquirer, something which he said was ‘weird’ and ‘gave him the chills’.
The FBI are trying to piece together his smashed up hard drive to see if his online footprint will reveal any motive for the killing, but they strongly believe he made use of devil-worshiping and suicide sites and boasted of his murder plans on message forums.

Actor Val Kilmer makes no bones about it, stating: “I don’t make any pretense about being normal. I’m not.” Hollywood’s extreme liberal stance and countering of traditional ideologies allow them to sway the opinions of the world and effect new towers of social thought in the process. Actor Tim Robbins admits, “…I’m involved in this society in a way that I want to use whatever celebrity I have to talk about things that aren’t normally talked about.” The issues they harp on generally oppose God’s commands and work to generate a furthered breakdown of public morality. Oscar award winning director and screenwriter, John Irving, used his award winning film, the Cider House Rules, as a platform to increase the acceptance of abortion among his audiences. When confronted with those who stood in opposition to his message of murder, to quote Entertainment Weekly, he had this to say:
“Scores of anti-abortion protestors ringed the perimeter of the auditorium, but that didn’t dissuade John Irving from thanking “everyone at Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Rights League” in his acceptance speech. ‘Some people raised their eyebrows?’ Irving said later at the Miramax party. ‘F— them. That’s how I feel about them, and I mean it.’”
L.A. Marzulli | Well here we are at the start of 2013 and what is on the horizon, the rounding up of our guns and the trashing of our 2nd Amendment rights. As I have posted before, no amount of legislation would have prevented the tragedy at Sandy Hook.

How do we know who is going to snap and who isn’t? There’s no way to know and thus there’s no way to legislate this kind protection.
I believe some of the blame can be layed at the feet of Big Pharma, who manufactures mind altering drugs and then creates commercials which make taking these drugs look inviting. Have you ever watched drug commercials when they show a man and women strolling through a park looking happy and content, meanwhile the voice over guy is reading a list of warnings including, suicidal thoughts, and depression. I posted a list of the shooters who were on mind altering drugs and will do so once again today as this needs to be brought to the attention of the American people. Prescription Drug Warnings
The taking of mind-altering drugs has not been discussed by our government, instead it’s all about rounding up our guns, as if that will solve the problem. Bottom line is, it won’t!
