A sign of the end times? Actor Tyrese Gibson says that Hollywood is now openly embracing Satanism

As you read the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John’s vision of events taking place in the end times, we see Satan emerging from the shadows. He is no longer hiding, but now demanding that people worship him (Revelation 13:15). How could there be such a radical shift in society that people would even consider, much less want to, publicly worship Satan? In a recent interview with Big Boy, the host of “Big Boy’s Neighborhood”, Hollywood actor and musician Tyrese Gibson, 44, explains what is happening in Hollywood that may be an indicator of a shift taking place in society. Gibson says that Hollywood is starting to openly embrace satanism, The Blaze reports. “They [are] going above and beyond to promote the devil,” Gibson told Big Boy, “and it’s p***ing me off.” “The devil is on the mainstage at award shows and in every video, and you have signs and symbols,” he added. “I just feel like we’re in competition right now because they are trying to normalize the devil.” With Amens from Big Boy, …

Canada: Teacher tells Muslim students they don’t belong in Canada if they don’t support Pride events

Muslim students in Edmonton, Canada captured the rant of a woke teacher who suggested that the immigrant students should return to their home countries if they don’t support Pride events at the school, The Blaze reports. The teacher who taught at Londonderry Junior High School was talking to a group of Muslim students who had boycotted a Pride event. The Blaze explains: During the two-minute clip, which was reportedly recorded and shared by a student, the teacher also discussed the differences between the laws and values in Canada and the laws and values in other countries. She asserted that all Canadians “believe in freedom” and “believe that people can marry whomever they want.” Canada officially legalized so-called same-sex marriage in 2005. […] “If you don’t think that [gay marriage] should be the law, you can’t be Canadian,” she continued. “You don’t belong here, and I really mean it.” READ: Junior high teacher in Canada berates Muslim students for boycotting Pride events: ‘If you don’t think that should be the law, you can’t be Canadian’ I …

Street preacher arrested in Reading, Pennsylvania for quoting Bible verse at Pride rally

A street preacher in Reading, Pennsylvania was handcuffed and arrested after quoting a Bible verse at an outdoor Pride event, CBN reports. Matthew Wear who was just passing by was able to catch the arrest on camera. According to Wear, the street preacher, Damon Atkins, had just started speaking on a sidewalk across the street from the Pride event, when a police officer, Sergeant Bradley T. McClure, ordered him to stop preaching. When Atkins refused and started quoting 1 Corinthians 14:33, “For God is not a God of confusion but of peace,” he was immediately arrested and prevented from finishing the verse. With a video of the arrest and circumstances that led up to it, many believe Atkins’s arrest was a violation of his First Amendment Rights including Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion. Atkins told CBN that he was charged “with criminal disorderly conduct with engaged to fight.” However, the video seems to suggest otherwise. I suspect a lawsuit is pending.

Fox News host says she was told to leave a restaurant because she bowed in prayer before eating her meal

Fox News host Harris Faulkner shared an interesting story on how she was asked to leave an unnamed restaurant because she had, are you ready for this, dared to say a prayer before eating the meal, Toddstarnes.com reports. Faulkner said that after they had prayed, their server began to glare at them and then allegedly complained to the manager that the prayer had triggered them. “For those of us who believe, we must be bold in our faith right now. When you gather in public spaces, pray thankfully over your food – even when the server gives you the stink eye or tells the manager that your peaceful grace is triggering them,” Faulkner said in her Monday broadcast. “Had it happen to me. I’ve been asked to leave a restaurant for openly bowing my head in prayer hands. In America. It’s all good. They don’t deserve my money anyway,” Faulkner claimed. Faulkner who was filling in at the 8 pm time slot once held by Tucker Carlson is very outspoken about her faith in Christ. …

The evil female spirit, Lilith, will be featured prominently in the newly-released video game, Diablo IV

It seems that nearly every time I clicked on a link to view a YouTube video over the past few weeks, I was forced to watch an ad for Xbox’s new video game, Diablo IV. The imagery in the ad without a doubt is clearly satanic. Scheduled for release today, June 6, 2023, in an article for Charisma News, James Lasher says that Diablo IV actually features one of the few demons that are mentioned by name in the Bible, Lilith. The Bible only provides the actual names of a handful of Demons which includes: Lilith is mentioned only once in the Bible, and was used when the prophet Isaiah was describing the creatures that will haunt Edom after its destruction: The desert creatures will meet with the wolves,The goat also will cry to its kind.Yes, the night-bird (literally in the Hebrew Lilith) will settle thereAnd will find herself a resting place. (Isaiah 34:14 NASV) Though we are not provided any additional information about Lilith, according to Jewish tradition it referred to a female demon …

Children’s choir forced to stop singing America’s national anthem at US Capitol because ‘it might offend someone’

Rushingbrook Children’s Choir is a children’s Christian choir from South Carolina. They were at the US Capitol on May 26, 2023, and while inside decided to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” to an appreciative audience who were slowly gathering to hear the performance, The Blaze reports. But not everyone was enjoying it. An officer for the US Capitol police ordered the children to stop mid-song because singing America’s national anthem inside the US Capitol (and we are not making this up) might “offend someone”. Another officer claimed, “singing the Anthem could be considered a form of protest.” The children who were in the middle of the third stanza immediately stopped singing. But here is the kicker, the choir had actually been invited by several state congressional representatives to come to the US Capitol and sing. This is the absurdity of our the woke left-wing culture that is trying to dominate America, and that insists singing the national anthem at the US Capitol is offensive.

A new series being produced for Disney+ is about a teen girl impregnated by Satan

Disney bills itself as a family-friendly entertainment conglomerate, but critics argue it’s now anything but. A new series entitled ‘Pauline’ scheduled for release on Disney+ has a disturbing theme, CBN reports. The German-made production will feature an 18-year-old girl who becomes pregnant after having a one-night stand with Satan. “Let me be clear. Pauline is not just another piece of entertainment,” said Ted Baehr who is the founder and chair of MovieGuide. “Horrifically, this series even portrays Satan as a romantic partner! By normalizing and promoting such a relationship, Pauline sends a dangerous message to young viewers that associating with demons, Satan, and evil is acceptable and even desirable!” MovieGuide, which bills itself as a ‘family guide to movies and entertainment, has joined with Citizen-go to start a petition calling for Disney to cancel the show.

Bible being used to train Artificial intelligence

Meta, the company that owns Facebook and is developing Artificial intelligence technology (AI), recently said that it is using the Bible and other religious texts including Christian literature to train its AI to understand multiple languages, Premier Christian News reports. The tech company is using the Bible to train its AI because it has been translated into so many languages. As of September last year, the complete Bible (Old and New Testament) has been translated into 724 languages, the New Testament into 1,617 languages, and individual chapters and texts into 3,589 languages. “These [Bible] translations have publicly available audio recordings of people reading these texts in different languages,” Meta said in a statement. “As part of the MMS project, we created a dataset of readings of the New Testament in more than 1,100 languages, which provided on average 32 hours of data per language.” Currently, Meta’s AI understands 4,000 languages that can be simultaneously translated up from the 100 it was capable of doing a few months ago.

Atheism and high social media usage linked to higher teenage suicide risk, study finds

A study by the Center for Bible Engagement (CBE) has concluded that atheistic thinking and high social media usage are contributing to a higher risk of suicide among teens, Christian Headlines reports. CBE surveyed 4,700 teens between the ages of 14 to 17 from nine different countries as part of its study. The researchers concluded that there was a correlation between ‘atheism/agnosticism/spiritual uncertainty’ and significant social media usage that led to what the study termed destructive thinking that included thoughts of suicide. “Rates of destructive thoughts are more common among teens who express that they don’t believe in anything spiritual, are uncertain about their beliefs, or believe they sin, but don’t believe in Jesus,” the study noted. CBE found that destructive thinking was significantly more common among those teens who questioned the reality of God and the afterlife. This included those who entertain thoughts that included “I have no need for God,” “There is no afterlife when we die,” and “God does not exist.” Those teens who had a firmer belief in God, the Bible, …

Christian student Suing Former University Professor over Forced Donation to Left-wing Causes

A Christian student, Nathan Barbieri, is suing a former Michigan State University (MSU) College of Business professor after she forced the students to make contributions to Planned Parenthood as part of her required class assignments, Fox News reports. According to Fox News, the professor, Amy Wisner, is described as a far-left professor in the lawsuit being handled on behalf of Barbieri by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). The lawsuit alleges that the professor required the 600 students in her class to make a $99 donation to a group called ‘The Rebellion Community, (TRC)’ amounting to nearly a $60,000 contribution. It’s alleged that Wisner is personally in charge of TRC. Another student is also suing the professor for being forced to support her political views. According to a post on Wisner’s Facebook page, 100% of the donations to TRC are given to Planned Parenthood and other organizations ‘dismantling oppressive systems.’ Though MSU refunded the $99 contributions each of the students were required to make, Barbieri is suing Wisner because the money he donated to TRC is still …

Woke activists try to cancel Colorado church

There is an interesting story on Charisma News about how woke activists are trying to cancel a Christian church in Boulder, Colorado because it believes in traditional marriage. The radicals believe The Well Church is vulnerable because it is renting its facility from a business, and are putting pressure on the business to cancel the arrangement. Several individuals including a journalist and even a member of the local school board have begun targeting the business that is providing space for the church, a local food park, the Rayback Collective. Writing for Charisma News, James Lasher explains that the rage was apparently sparked when the church dared to hold an Easter egg hunt on the front lawn of the Boulder County Courthouse, the week before Easter: In what can only be called a “hit piece,” one local guest columnist wrote in The Daily Camera, a local Boulder newspaper, that the church was “divisive,” “misogynistic” and “potentially, an LGBTQ-hate group.” […] The author who was so outraged by the audacity of Christians to display religious activity in …

What does a thumbs-down at a California high school racing event signal?

Adeline Johnson, a high school track star at Sonoma Academy in California, seems to have signalled her dissatisfaction with a thumbs-down at the podium after placing fourth in her 1600m race at the North Coast Meet of Champions. Her fourth place finish disqualified Johnson from competing in the state final as only the top three finishers move on, the New York Post reports. Many believe her thumbs-down motion was in response to Johnson being bumped out of the top three by a transgender female (biological male), who came in second. The California Interscholastic Federation allows individuals to “participate in programs consistent with their gender identity or the gender most consistently expressed.” According to reports, security at the event removed protestors who showed up with signs reading “Protect Female Sports.” READ: High school track star appears to give ‘thumbs-down’ after she’s pushed out of state champs by transgender competitor: ‘Cheated’

Sex Dolls: Can we talk about this?

I have to start this article with a disclaimer. I am writing as a Christian, and the topic here is closely related to pornography. I hope we can understand some issues in our modern world, without being drawn into the behavior. If Christians don’t speak about some topics, the conversation will only be one-sided. Some challenges need an answer. There are some things we should be aware of. I will not give references or links to visual and video sites, because they tend to be pornographic. There is a line in a country song “I know what I was feeling, but what was I thinking?” So, what are we thinking? A few years ago, I was in a retail store, and I looked for something to buy, but they didn’t have anything for me. It was a strange place. As I was leaving, I passed a mannequin display, and I heard an angry woman. Another shopper, a woman, told me that something was disgusting. I wasn’t sure what she meant, so I looked around, and …

Canada: Police arrest teenage boy handing out Bibles in Calgary

CBN reports that police in Calgary, Canada arrested a teenage boy who was handing out free Bibles. Josh Alexander who is 16 years old posted a video of his arrest on Twitter. Though he was released the same day, police warned Alexander that he would be arrested and charged if he continued to distribute Bibles. The arrest took place after an altercation broke out between Alexander, his supporters, and a counter-protest group. Alexander has previously gained notoriety for opposing policies at his Catholic high school in Renfrew, Ontario, that allowed transgender girls to use female bathrooms. After he organized protests against the decision, Alexander was suspended by the school and eventually arrested by the police when he returned to class while suspended.

Trust only 70% of the science?

While the political elite repeatedly tells us that we need to trust the science, a recent study by German researchers has concluded that 25% of the published medical research papers and 34% of the neuroscience papers they examined are bogus, The Blaze reports. The researchers attributed this to paper-mills that “use AI-supported, automated production techniques at scale and sell fake publications to students, scientists, and physicians under pressure to advance their careers.” The Blaze adds: According to the newly released study conducted by Sabel and other German researchers, which has itself yet to undergo peer review, there were an estimated 300,000 red-flagged, fake publications among the 1.3 million biomedical publications listed in the SCImago portal. Sabel estimated around 34% of neuroscience papers published in 2020 were bogus. “It is just too hard to believe,” Sabel told the journal Science, suggesting that it is as if “somebody tells you 30% of what you eat is toxic.” The researchers noted that one group of 712 papers that were classified as “problematic” had been cited in other papers …

Cancel culture targets a Mother’s Day sign at Toronto school

In the lead-up to Mother’s Day, an elementary school in Toronto Canada, Kew Beach Junior Public School, put up a cute message on their school sign to honor moms that simply read: “Life does not come with a manual. It comes with a mom.” We have one day which we set aside each year to honor the sacrifice that moms have made for us, and now it seems the perpetual ‘outrage’ mob is coming after that. Shortly after the message was put up, someone complained about the sign on social media calling it ‘harmful’ and ‘exclusionary’, the Toronto Sun reports. Well, a day or so later the school caved, and the message was taken down. We all have a mother, and it seems we can’t even set aside one day to honor them in our modern enlightened culture. As Jerry Agar explained in his Toronto Sun article, “When you are attacking Mom, you have reached the literal bottom of the barrel.” “I would not be writing about this because some socially active trouble maker took …

Why the American Center for Law and Justice is suing a Nevada school board

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) is representing Candra and Terrell Evans, the parents of a 15-year-old girl who was forced to recite sexually explicit material in a drama class at the Nevada Clark County School District (CCSD). A few excerpts from ACLJ’s news release provide more gory details of what happened in the class [warning some explicit material]: A student in a Las Vegas area school district was forced to perform a profanity-laced, sexually explicit, and obscene monologue before the entire class as a graded assignment. School officials then lied to the parents. Finally, the school board banned the student’s mom from even reading to them the words her 15-year-old daughter had been forced to say in front of her class. We’re taking legal action today to fight back. […] In March of 2022, our clients’ 15-year-old daughter, who will be referred to as R.E., was required to perform a sexually explicit monologue prepared by another student before the entire class. The monologue—which many will find offensive—is below (edited by our attorneys …

Conservative teens are happier and less depressed than Liberal ones, study finds

The victim mentality is an insidious trap because those caught in its jaws are convinced that they are a victim of their circumstances. You are not succeeding because someone else is pushing you down, and until that is changed nothing will ever improve. Unfortunately, the victim mentality has become the rallying cry of the left where people blame men for oppressing women, the rich for oppressing the poor, and the police for oppressing criminals. The list of oppressors and victims is endless. Since these external forces are beyond your control, they ultimately determine your future. There is nothing you can do to change it. Any attempts you make to overcome your circumstance will only result in failure. So why try? Trapped by this mindset, the resulting loss of hope can cause a person to spiral into depression. And not surprisingly this was the conclusion of a study undertaken by Columbia University which found that Conservative teenagers are happier than those who hold left-wing views, The Blaze reports. The study entitled, “The politics of depression: Diverging …

Study: Half of Chicagoans have witnessed a shooting by the age of 40

According to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, by the age of 40 half of Chicagoans have seen a shooting, with 14 being the average age when they personally witnessed it, PJ Media reports. The study, conducted by researchers from Cambridge’s Institute of Criminology as well as Oxford and Harvard, tracked 2,000 Chicagoans for 25 years to middle age. The study found that blacks and Latinos, at 50%, were twice as likely to have witnessed a shooting than whites, where only 25% saw a shooting. Not all were just witnesses to a shooting, in the case of Blacks and Hispanics, 7% of those studied were actual victims by the age of 40, compared to just 3% for whites.

Study: Thousands of cases of schizophrenia may have been triggered by marijuana usage

A study by Danish researchers has discovered a link between Marijuana usage and cases of schizophrenia, The Blaze reports. The comprehensive study looked at the case histories of 6.9 million people from 1972 to 2021 and concluded that THC, the active ingredient in Marijuana, triggers or worsens mental illness and specifically schizophrenia in young men. Schizophrenia is a mental illness characterized by psychotic behavior that can include hallucinations, delusions, confused thinking, and an altered reality and is attributed to a dopamine imbalance in the brain. The researchers concluded that up to 30% of young men (21 to 30 years of age) diagnosed with schizophrenia could have avoided it if they had not used cannabis. This suggests that thousands of cases of schizophrenia may be attributed to Marijuana. The researchers noted when the age group of the men was expanded to 16 to 49 years of age, they attributed 15% of schizophrenia cases to marijuana usage. Though the increase was not so pronounced in females, the researchers concluded that 4% of the schizophrenia cases were also …

Over 25% of Canadians Support Euthanizing the Poor and Homeless

A recent poll revealed the rapid cultural deterioration taking place in Canada. In 2021, the country’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, introduced legislation allowing for medical-assisted suicide for those facing serious medical issues. It has since been expanded to allow those who are mentally unwell to receive assisted suicide, and it seems many Canadians are completely fine with this policy. A recent poll conducted by Research Co. found that a significant percentage of Canadians not only supported euthanasia but over 25% supported providing the service for the poor and homeless, Front Page reports. What was particularly disturbing was the views of the younger generation where 40% of those between the ages of 18-34 were comfortable euthanizing the poor. Research Co. provided more details on its poll results: Half of Canadians would agree to allow adults in Canada to seek medical assistance in dying due to an inability to receive medical treatment (51%) or a disability (50%). Fewer than three-in-ten would consent to expand the guidelines to include homelessness (28%) or poverty (27%) as reasons to seek …

Social media is harming kids

Mental health experts are raising concerns about the negative impact that social media is having on America’s children, CBN reports. A recent study by CDC of American high school students found several concerns about mental health of American teens: Experts are putting the blame for this on the addictive nature of social media that studies have shown can damage a teen’s self-image and well-being as teens are often comparing themselves to others. “Facebook knows that they are leading young users to anorexia,” former Facebook executive Frances Haugen said in her testimony to a Senate Committee. “When Facebook is asked questions directly as important as, ‘How do you impact the health and safety of our children?’ They choose to mislead and misdirect.” According to Kelly Newcom, founder of Brave Parenting, one of the solutions to this problem is for parents to cut back on the amount of time, that children spend on social media. A recent study has shown a significant improvement in the mental well-being of teens and young adults (76% were female) if they …

Has persecution come to the schools of America?

Elon Musk warn parents about public schools

In a recent interview with Bill Maher on his “Real Time” program, Twitter CEO, Elon Musk, issued a warning to parents about public schools, the Daily Wire reports. The issue came up when the discussion veered on to the topic of ‘wokeness’ and Musk added that a ‘woke mind virus’ has invaded America’s public schools and universities. Musk told Maher: “I was trying to figure out where it’s coming from. I think it’s actually been a long time brewing, in that it’s, I think it’s been going on for a while. The amount of indoctrination that’s happening in schools and universities is I think far beyond what parents realize.” “And I only sort of came to realize this somewhat late. The experience that we had in high school and college is not the experience that that kids today are having, and hasn’t been for, I don’t know, 10 years, maybe 20.” Musk went on to say, that most parents are not aware of the woke craziness that has enveloped public schools. Woke is a broad …

Christian prayer warriors gathering in Boston to pray for those attending SatanCon

A group of Christian prayer warriors have organized a Revive Boston conference purposefully being held in at the same time as SatanCon, scheduled for Boston this upcoming week, Fox News reports. SatanCon, which will run from April 28-30, 2023, coincides with The Satanic Temple’s tenth anniversary and has been billed as the ‘largest satanic gathering in history.’ The event advertised as “a weekend of blasphemy and remembrance in Boston,” will include a satanic marketplace, discussion panels, speaking events and even ‘unbaptisms’ for those denying their Christian faith. In an interview with the Christian Post, Suzie MacAskill, an organizer of Revive Boston, said she expects hundreds of people to attend the gathering as many intercessors have expressed that they felt God calling them to Boston. While there, they will be praying for the salvation of those attending SatanCon. “My personal sense is that God is doing something new, something powerful, something wonderful, and He is calling His bride to unity as He does this,” McAskill said. “We are seeing intercessors and watchmen joining with us from …

Managers say Gen Z is the most difficult generation that they have ever worked with

According to a study by ResumeBuilder, over half the US managers surveyed stated that they were forced to fire Gen Z employees because they were unmotivated and too easily offended, the Daily Mail reports. Gen Z, also known as Zoomers, are those born between 1997 and 2012, (13 to 25 years of age). Others are less specific, stating that zommers fall into the mid to late 1990s to early 2000s. The survey of 1,300 managers also found: One manager added that working with Gen Z employees is exhausting because they will challenge management, because Zoomers believes they are smarter than you, more capable, and “they will tell you to your face”.

Video: ‘The Monster behind the Gender theory’ — The story of Dr. John Money and the Reimer Twins

For millennia, people have believed that we have only two sexes, and it is hard-coded into a person’s DNA. So where did the theory come from that sex is only a cultural norm or something that is learned, and that can people can change their sex? The Money story Well, much of that can be attributed to Dr. John Money (1921-2006), a psychologist and sexologist from Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Money held the controversial view at the time, that sex was cultural and primarily learned. He believed under proper supervision you could change a person’s sex, provided it was done before the age of two. In the video above, Dr. Jordan Peterson interviews Dr. Miriam Grossman who explains the horrific story of Money’s views and failed experiment to convert one of the Reimer identical boy twins from a boy to a girl. Shortly after birth in 1965 in Winnipeg, Canada, the two boys were diagnosed as having a problem with their urethra and circumcision was recommended. However, because of a malfunction in the equipment, Bruce’s …

Are You Enabling? Or Maybe Gas Lighting?

Enabling? Gas Lighting? What do those words mean? We also have related words like “woke” which is emotional and not thoughtful and rational reactions, and “narcissism.” which is focusing the attention and benefits on ourselves. And here are two more words: “Bud Lite.” You probably know about the arguments, a corporation made a controversial decision about sponsorship. At this time, the company has lost about five billion dollars in value. That’s a billion with a “B.” So, let’s try something impossible. Let’s try to understand without joining the emotional argument. The whole world is taking sides, but let’s try to be clinical. This argument is a symptom of something much larger. If we are honest, modern expressions like enabling and gaslighting describe us, and the way we talk to friends and relatives. I am a Christian, and I know, a lot of organized religion includes manipulation … We should just do what we are told, and we don’t need to think about it. I know a younger man who is interested in politics, and he …

Citing crime, San Francisco supermarket closes after only being open for a year

After only being open for a year, Whole Foods has announced it will be temporarily closing down its supermarket in downtown San Francisco, Breitbart reports. The store cited rampant crime and concerns about the safety of its employees as the reason for the closure. The San Francisco Standard provides more details: One of the largest supermarkets in Downtown San Francisco—the Whole Foods Market at Eighth and Market streets—intends to shut down at the close of business Monday just a little more than a year after the store opened, company officials told The Standard.

Did an artificial intelligence chatbot encourage a man to commit suicide?

The wife of a Belgian man alleges that her husband’s discussion about Climate Change with an artificial intelligence chatbot ultimately contributed to him committing suicide. The unnamed man was in his thirties, the father of two children and worked as a health researcher. Euro News explains what happened: According to his widow, who chose to remain anonymous, *Pierre – not the man’s real name – became extremely eco-anxious when he found refuge in Eliza, an AI chatbot on an app called Chai. Eliza consequently encouraged him to put an end to his life after he proposed sacrificing himself to save the planet. “Without these conversations with the chatbot, my husband would still be here,” the man’s widow told Belgian news outlet La Libre. […] Eliza also appeared to become possessive of Pierre, even claiming “I feel that you love me more than her” when referring to his wife, La Libre reported. According to a review of the text conversation by La Libre, there were moments when Eliza allegedly encouraged the woman’s husband to commit suicide …

Canada: The new racism

In 2021, a white student attending a high school in Ontario, Canada tried to sign up for a summer program. He was rejected because apparently the program was only intended for black students. The Financial Post explains what happened next: In June 2021, an Ontario high school student tried to sign up for a summer program. He was rejected because he was white. The “SummerUp” program, sponsored by the Ontario government, was open only to Black students. His father filed a complaint with the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal alleging racial discrimination. Last November, the Tribunal dismissed the complaint, saying the quiet part out loud. White people, wrote the Tribunal, cannot claim discrimination.

Has persecution come to the schools of America?

Public schools in action

A teacher at Churchill High School in Eugene, Oregon is on paid leave after someone exposed one of his assignments where he asked students to write a sexual fantasy. Oregon Live provides a description of the assignment. “You will write a short story of a paragraph or two. This story is a sexual fantasy that will have NO penetration of any kind or oral sex (no way of passing an STI),’’ the assignment read. “You will choose 3 items (romantic music, candles, massage oil, feather, feather boa, flavored syrup, etc) to use in your story. Your story should show that you can show and receive loving physical affection without having sex.” As well, the students were asked to write down the initials of a fellow student they would like to explore this sexual fantasy with. The assignment has since been removed from the school’s curriculum.

An Encounter with God is More Powerful than TikTok

By Dr. Michael Brown

The influence of TikTok on America’s young people has become so pervasive that this past February I asked, “Is China Using TikTok to Control the Minds of Our Children?” As outrageous as that question may sound to some, I only raised it because others had already drawn attention to the disparity between TikTok in China and TikTok in America.

SEX! … Do I have your attention?

I remember the sexual revolution. I’m old enough that I lived through times when our culture was changing, and people were becoming liberated. I was raised in a religious family, and I talked to my friends, but I didn’t get to participate. My family and church had one word for me: NO! I am grateful now, that I avoided so many dangerous things, but that did not make me a good or moral person. I was just severely restricted. When I started my adult life, we had a pastor who explained morals to us. He didn’t just say the usual “NO!”, he explained the dangers to us. I am still grateful. I am writing about liberation, also known as playing around, promiscuity, or partying and any other words that I missed. My language is not always up-to-date. Basically, it’s describing a pornographic lifestyle. This is an uncomfortable topic, but we need to face it. Young adults in many parts of the world are going through a social revolution, and the results are not good. Depression …

NYC mayor: ‘When we took prayers out of schools, guns came into schools’

During a recent interfaith breakfast, New York City Mayor Eric Adams said he rejected the notion of the separation of church and state and believes that the removal of faith and prayer from schools has contributed to many of the problems we are now seeing in our education system, The Blaze. The Blaze provided a few comments that the Democrat Mayor made during his presentation at the annual breakfast held at the New York Public library. “Don’t tell me about no separation of church and state. State is the body. Church is the heart. You take the heart out of the body, the body dies.” “I can’t separate my belief because I’m an elected official,” Adams continued. “When I walk, I walk with God. When I talk, I talk with God. When I put policies in place, I put them in with a God-like approach to them. That’s who I am.” “When we took prayers out of schools, guns came into schools.” Mayor Adams suggested that the declining faith in society may also be behind …
