8 Year Old Student Suspended For Saying Merry Christmas To Teacher

mean-teacher

8 year old Samantha Dawson from San Fransisco California was suspended from school simply for saying, “Merry Christmas”.

CBS News Reports:

San Francisco, CA — The ‘war on Christmas’ continues as a simple well-wishing of ‘Merry Christmas’ has led to big trouble for one third-grade San Francisco girl this week.

Samantha Dawson, an 8-year-old student at Westview Elementary School in San Francisco, CA., was in the school cafeteria Tuesday eating with friends when she was taken to the principal’s office and given a week-long suspension. Her punishment was consequence for saying ‘Merry Christmas’ to her homeroom teacher earlier that day.

Dawson’s teacher, 37-year-old Paul Horner who is an outspoken Atheist, was offended at the students display of Christmas spirit and had staff suspend the young girl for the rest of the week.

“I say ‘Merry Christmas’ to everyone,” the young girl told CBS News. “I didn’t think it would cause so much trouble just for saying a couple little words.”

The girl’s mother, Laura Dawson, 41, was fuming over the issue.

“You don’t traumatize a child who loves to go to school, who wanted to be early every day to school, you don’t make her cry, just for wishing someone Merry Christmas,” she told reporters, holding back tears. “You just don’t do it.”

Reporters spoke with Mr. Horner as he was leaving from school yesterday.

“I warned the children not to bring religion into my classroom,” Horner said. “Maybe Samantha will listen to adults next time.”

At the time of this press release, Westview Elementary School officials declined to comment, though this was posted on the school’s website:

Once again we had to suspend a student, 3rd grader Samantha Dawson, because she said “Merry Christmas” to her homeroom teacher, who is a proud atheist.

PLEASE, lets learn from this horrible act and not let the the holiday spirit be ruined by the few that confuse church and state.

Happy Holidays everyone!!!

7th-grader told to kill herself for not denying God

6a00d834526d9869e2017744497435970d
In a story gaining momentum since late October, a seventh-grader from Katy, Texas, was made to state “God is a myth” by her middle-school teacher. Now the student is facing startling repercussions for her refusal to back down.

It started when 12-year-old Jordan Wooley’s teacher assigned a quiz at West Memorial Junior High School asking students to label statements as “fact, assertion, or opinion.”

Statements included “America is the most free country on Earth,” and “there is a God.” Jordan said the assignment was to identify “factual claims, commonplace assertions and opinions.” She said she originally answered the statement “there is no God” in two ways, according to a local CBS News affiliate.

Jordan labeled the latter as “fact,” and her teacher told her to mark it otherwise, or face an “F” grade.

“I said it was fact or opinion,” Jordan told the station. “Based on my religion and based on what I think and believe, I do not think it was a commonplace assertion.”

Get the inspiring DVD movie that almost replicates this case: “God’s Not Dead”

Wooley says her seventh-grade reading teacher said both her answers were wrong and that she had to admit God wasn’t real.

“It was really confusing to me at first because I didn’t really know what to do, so the first thing I did was tell my mom,” Wooley said.

The child’s mother, Chantal, said, “That a kid was literally graded against her faith in God in a classroom so who would want to be known. … So the kids were caught in a Catch-22. If they argued their faith, they were being told they were arguing against their faith and that happened in the classroom.”

Jordan later testified in front of Katy Independent School District’s Board of Education meeting on how her friend went home crying after the assignment for being forced to express doubts about her faith.

The Katy ISD released a statement saying, in part, that the assignment was intended to encourage critical thinking and dialogue and not question any students’ religious beliefs.

“Still this does not excuse the fact that this ungraded activity was ill-conceived and because of that, its intent had been misconstrued,” Katy ISD said in its statement.

The district backed the teacher, who said the assignment was “misunderstood.” However after its investigation, “the district said the particular assignment was ‘unnecessary for achieving the instructional standard’ and pointed out that the teacher is actually a Christian and the assignment was misunderstood,” reported Christian Today.

“The teacher is distraught by this incident, as some commentary has gone as far as to vilify her without knowing her, her Christian faith, or the context of the classroom activity,” Frailey said during a news conference on Wednesday.

Now Jordan is experiencing fallout from her refusal to back down from her story and for standing up for her beliefs. She says she has been bullied and told to kill herself after media coverage of the incident.

Seventh grader made to say there is no God 11-29-15

“The Katy Independent School District claimed that it never happened and that Wooley’s story could not be verified,” notes IJ Review. “But Wooley would not relent, calling the school board ‘liars,’ and demanding an apology in a statement on Monday.”

Wooley’s mother, Chantel, said, “Jordan’s faith is continually being tested. She feels like she’s being made to be a liar when all that she did was tell the truth. … She was harassed at school, she was flipped off in the hallway, she was cursed at and blamed for this situation that her teacher and administration has created. She has chosen to forgive them and pray for them.”

Detractors have dismissed the controversy. “The outrage expressed by Jordan and her supporters is essentially directed at anyone who is trying to categorize what religious beliefs really are,” notes Crooks and Liars. “If you say it’s a belief and NOT A FACT, they will get very defensive and accuse you of not respecting their particular brand of what amounts to commonplace assertions. If you suggest it’s a myth, even without using those words, the staunch believer will become agitated and appalled at the mere notion that everyone doesn’t believe exactly as they do. So much for an assignment in the Bible Belt to discuss the differences between facts and beliefs. No wonder the GOP reigns supreme where the word ‘fact’ is a subjective matter.” [Emphasis in original.]

On “Fox and Friends Weekend” with Clayton Morris, Jordan stated, “A few people have told me to kill myself, people have told me things I’m not allowed to say. I’ve lost a few of my close friends, but that’s what will happen.”

When Morris asks her if she’s thought of giving up, however, Wooly replied, “I’m going to keep going until something gets done, and until something gets done, I’m not going to stop.”

Unbelievable: Obama’s VA issues BAN on Christmas trees…this happens IMMEDIATELY

 

President-Barack-Obama-addressed-crowd-Washington-DC-during

Sadly, we’ve come to expect attempts at “sanitizing” the Christmas holiday to strip it of Christian connotations that might offend the perpetually-offended, just as we’ve come to expect President Obama’s lack of respect both for our Constitution and the men and women who’ve valiantly served to protect it. But when the Obama administration combined these three fouls into one giant hat trick, it didn’t go over so well with veterans who wish to mark one of the biggest Christian holidays of the year.

Via Breitbart:

President Barack Obama’s Department of Veterans Affairs has banned employees at its facility in Salem, Virginia, from saying “Merry Christmas” to veterans.

It started as a broader ban that included Christmas trees. Federal law recognizes Christmas as an official federal holiday (5 U.S.C. § 6103) and provides federal employees with a paid day off to celebrate the Christian belief in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ.

Every year, a White House Christmas Tree and a Capitol Christmas Tree grace those two respective buildings in Washington D.C., and a National Christmas Tree is also officially lighted outdoors for the public to enjoy during that time of year.

Yet the “Executive Leadership Team” at the Salem VA Medical Center banned Christmas trees, as well as other Christian speech and celebrations. As reported by local media, an email sent by senior staff to the center’s employees reads in part:

…Public areas may only be decorated in a manner that is celebratory of the winter season. Displays must not promote any religion. Please note that trees (regardless of the types of ornaments used) have been deemed to promote the Christian religion and will not be permitted in any public areas this year.

Just hours ago, pressure from the center’s employees caused the management team to cave on the Christmas tree ban. Christmas trees are back in at the facility.

So that’s the good news. Good for the employees for voicing their dismay!

However, the VA is maintaining that “private religious expressions can only be uttered in “personal work areas.” That means employees can only speak freely in places where the public usually cannot enter and, even then, only if the recipient would clearly understand that the speaker is speaking in his personal capacity only.

In other words, an employee could be punished for wishing “Merry Christmas” to a veteran in the lobby or any other public area.

In other words, an employee could by punished by the government for exercising their First Amendment right.

Even when those stringent curbs are obeyed, the email directive adds that private religious speech can still be banned if managers decide such speech “interfere[s] with carrying out official duties and responsibilities,” threatening penalties against people who offer religious greetings even behind closed doors.

The email also bars Christmas music, saying that if a supervisor has allowed an employee to have music in his workspace, such music must “be secular (non-religious).”

The message from the center’s top leaders says that VA employees who need further guidance about the removal of religious symbols should “contact the Chaplain Service at ext. 2165.”

Read the full text here:

VA email

Interesting to note that the VA chooses to mention “at this time of year” — hmm, think they issued a similar memo around Ramadan?

“At a time when our VA should be doing everything it can to honor our veterans, it instead denigrates them and their service,” said Michael Berry, senior counsel with Liberty Institute, the largest law firm in the United States that litigates exclusively religious liberty cases.

“Any VA employee—whether they work at the Salem VA Center or elsewhere—who feels that their free-speech or religious-liberty rights are being violated, they should contact us immediately,” he told Breitbart News. The firm’s website is www.libertyinstitute.org.

Make sure to spread the word amongst your veteran friends and family, folks. We must continue to stand vigilant against attacks on our freedoms — first and foremost, against those inflicted by our own government. Fourteen months and counting down for Obama’s America; we can’t afford to snooze for even one minute!

And let me be the first to say a hearty MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and yours!!!

Christian nursery worker ‘sacked after refusing to read gay stories to children’

Sarah Mbuyi, a Christian nursery worker, is to claim she was sacked from her job due to religious discrimination, as a group backing her case says David Cameron’s defense of faith is ‘failing to play out’

bible-large-article-0

A Christian nursery worker is taking her former employers to court claiming she was sacked for her beliefs after refusing to read stories about gay couples to children.

Sarah Mbuyi says she was dismissed due to religious discrimination, having also been accused of “harassing” a lesbian colleague to whom she gave a Bible when she was recovering from an accident.

The case, lodged at an employment tribunal, comes amid growing concerns among some Christians that religious beliefs are being “outlawed” in the workplace. A Christian group backing the case says it is an example of believers being “robbed” of the freedom to express views.

Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, has warned that “militant atheists” are attempting to impose “politically correct intolerance” on others. “We’re a Christian nation,” he insisted.

Last week David Cameron said Christians should be “more evangelical” about their faith and “get out there and make a difference to people’s lives”. But the Christian Legal Centre, which is funding Miss Mbuyi’s case, said his words were “failing to play out”.

Miss Mbuyi, 30, who lives in north London, carries a Bible. She started work for Newpark Childcare, a London-based group of four nurseries, last April, before being taken on full-time in one of the schools in September.

MBUYI_2887386b

The same month a lesbian worker also joined the nursery, in Shepherd’s Bush, west London. After discovering that Miss Mbuyi was Christian she repeatedly asked her about her beliefs, the tribunal will be told.

Miss Mbuyi, now working at another nursery, will claim her colleague sought to provoke her. In December the co-worker spent time in hospital having had an accident at work and Miss Mbuyi gave her a Bible on her return.

The present, Miss Mbuyi says, was as a result of the interest she had shown in her faith. It was received well, she insists.

The following month, however, Miss Mbuyi, a Belgian national who came to Britain six years ago, says her colleague told her she had received abuse about her sexuality from religious people in the past.

During the discussion, Miss Mbuyi says she told the woman that “if I tell you that God is OK with that I am lying to you”.

At a disciplinary meeting, her employers accused Miss Mbuyi of “harassing” her co-worker, saying such behavior amounted to “gross misconduct”. The co-worker could not be reached for comment.

Her employers inquired how she would feel if she was asked to read children’s storybooks featuring same-sex parents. She replied that she would not be able to read such books.

The Christian Legal Centre has instructed Paul Diamond, a prominent religious rights barrister, to fight the case.

Andrea Williams, chief executive of the group, said: “Sharing Biblical truths out of genuine love and concern for colleagues is being outlawed in the workplace by a dominating cultural correctness. There is a culture of fear which closes down freedom of speech and the manifestation of faith. This culture brands the liberating good news of the Gospel as oppressive and regressive.

“The Christian Legal Centre is representing Sarah Mbuyi as the latest in a line of Christians who are being threatened by a movement to repress Christians from living out a genuine expression of their faith in a country which once led the world in freedom and justice.”

French priest charged with rape, torture during exorcisms

roman catholic evil preachers

First let me say how much I AM is at the doors is against the Catholic belief system, and just about everything they stand for. They are  much worse than the Pharisee’s in Jesus’ time.

The Roman Catholic church was founded around 325 AD.  They taught (falsely), and still do, that the Bishops of the church were “spiritual successors” to the original 12 apostles, in particular the Apostle Peter, and that they had the right to discern true or false doctrine.  At that time, they changed many of the doctrines taught in the Bible, making Mary a deity, empowering the “church” as your salvation instead of Jesus Christ being the one and only way to salvation, changed the baptism taught by Jesus and His apostles, including Peter, and indoctrinated many false concepts.  They even say that the mother of Jesus is the only way whereby you may receive grace.  It’s true that Mary was blessed to carry and give birth to Jesus, but she was simply a Jewish woman, not a God.  They made it a crime punishable by death to attempt to actually read the bible for yourself and/or contradict the Roman Catholic church during the Dark Ages, and they have killed an estimated 68 million Christians over the years for refusing to bow to the false doctrine of the Roman Catholic church.

According to the Catholic church you must do all of the following in order to receive salvation:

  • Confess your sins to a Roman Catholic priest.

  • “Receive” all appropriate Roman Catholic sacraments.

  • Believe that Grace comes only via Rome’s sacraments, and only through Mary.

  • Buy or earn as many indulgences as possible so as to avoid Purgatory.

  • Believe that Grace can only be distributed to you by Mary.

  • Attend the Roman Catholic Mass on all Sundays and holy days.

  • Obey all of Rome’s rules (i.e., precepts of the Church).

  • Be a member of the Roman Catholic Church.

  • Submit yourself to the Pope.

The bible teaches that you must believe in Jesus and obey the Gospel for salvation, and that it’s by the grace of God, not Mary or Rome, that we are saved.  All of the above only make you subservient to the Roman Catholic church and do not ensure your place with God at all.

Below is the article from the Daily Star

VERSAILLES: A priest in an ultra-conservative Catholic sect has been charged with rape and torture for acts allegedly committed during exorcisms involving three school teachers.

Verssailles prosecutor Vincent Lesclous told AFP the 40-year-old priest with the Society of Saint Pius X, whose identity has not been released to protect the victims, was charged on Wednesday and is being held without bail.

He is facing charges of aggravated rape, torture and “committing barbarous acts” for the alleged assaults on three teachers at a private religious school in the western suburbs of Paris.

The prosecutor refused to provide further details, but newspaper Le Parisien reported Thursday that the assaults took place in the autumn of 2010 at the Notre-Dame de la Sablonniere school run by the sect.

It alleged he had first raped one teacher during an exorcism to purge her of the “evil” from a previous sexual assault.

He then used his “spiritual influence” to convince two other female teachers to undergo similar exorcisms, Le Parisien said.

It said the victims had claimed that acts of torture had been committed using a broom, a toothbrush and scissors during the ceremonies.

Questioned by police, the priest claimed no assaults had been committed, saying he had only “simulated” sexual acts.

The Society of Saint Pius X is a breakaway group of fundamentalist Catholics that strongly opposes the liberal reforms of the Catholic Church imposed by the Vatican II Council in the 1960s.

With 600,000 followers in 62 countries, the group founded in 1970 by French bishop Marcel Lefebvre has been dogged by accusations of anti-Semitism and far-right leanings. Lefebvre was ex-communicated in 1988 and died in 1991.

 

Egyptians demands Israel pay reparations for Biblical plagues

Plagues in ancient Egypt

Possibly disregarding that the Biblical ten plagues were brought down on the Egyptians roughly 3,500 years ago, a popular columnist in the North African nation is calling on his government to take the State of Israel to court for compensation, as reported by the Jerusalem-based news portal Israel Today on April 11, 2014.

Publishing his demands right before the Jewish High Holy Days of Passover (known to Jews as Pesach), popular and respected Cairo-based newspaperman Ahmad al-Gamal raised more than a few Hebrew eyebrows when he blamed “the Children of Israel” instead of Pharaoh for the various plagues that were of … well, Biblical proportions.

As cited in the Book of Exodus, for refusing to free the Hebrews from slavery, the Almighty visited the following plagues upon Egypt:

  • Drinking water turned into blood (דָם): Ex. 7:14–25
  • Multitude of frogs (צְּפַרְדֵּעַ): Ex. 7:25–8:11
  • Lice infestation (כִּנִּים): Ex. 8:16–19
  • Swarms of biting flies (עָרוֹב): Ex. 8:20–32
  • Death of livestock (דֶּבֶר): Ex. 9:1–7
  • Men and surviving cattle stricken with infectious boils (שְׁחִין): Ex. 9:8–12
  • Storms of fire (בָּרָד): Ex. 9:13–35
  • Locusts destroy crops (אַרְבֶּה): Ex. 10:1–20
  • Total darkness (חוֹשֶך): Ex. 10:21–29
  • Death of firstborn sons (מַכַּת בְּכוֹרוֹת): Ex. 11:1–12:36

As al-Gamal argued, it’s been the Egyptian people who have suffered for well over three millennia, so by his reckoning, the Jews owe him. Without due consideration that the statute of limitations may have already passed, the hostile Hamitic complained “We demand that the State of Israel pay compensation for the ten plagues that our forefathers in Egypt suffered thousands of years ago as a result of the curses of the Jewish forefathers.” Not quite done yet, al-Gamal may be under the impression that the plagues have been continuous since approximately 1,500 BC when he penned “What is written in the Torah is that Pharaoh discriminated against the children of Israel. What have we to do with it? We therefore need not suffer!

According to the American Lawyers Quarterly, the standard Egyptian statute of limitations is normally between five to fifteen years. Nonetheless, al-Gamal demands the Jewish State be brought before the docket due to the Tribe of Israel wandering in the wilderness for 40 years “the Children of Israel enjoyed our goods, which they stole before abandoning us.

As cited by Israel Today, a handful of Israeli pundits have fired back at al-Gamal that possibly their country could and would consider reparations, just as soon as Egypt pays them back for making slaves of the Hebrew people 3,500 years ago.

75 killed, 120 injured in Peshawar church attack

christian-church-attack-pakistan

PESHAWAR: A twin suicide bombing killed more than 75 people at a church service in northwest Pakistan on Sunday, officials said, in what is believed to be the country’s deadliest attack on Christians.

The two attackers struck at the end of a service at All Saints Church in  Peshawar, the main town in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province which has borne the brunt of a bloody Islamist insurgency in recent years.

Sahibzada Anees, one of Peshawar’s most senior officials, told reporters the bombers struck when the service had just ended.

“Most of the wounded are in critical condition,” Anees said.

“We are in an area which is a target of terrorism and within that area there was a special security arrangement for the church. We are in a rescue phase and once it is over we will investigate what went wrong.”

Former minister for inter-faith harmony Paul Bhatti and provincial lawmaker Fredrich Azeem Ghauri both said the attack was the deadliest ever targeting Christians in Pakistan.

The K-P government announced Rs500,000 in compensation to the families of victims in the attack.

The small and largely impoverished Christian community suffers discrimination in overwhelmingly Muslim-majority Pakistan but bombings against them are extremely rare.

Schoolteacher Nazir Khan, 50, said the service had just ended and at least 400 worshippers were greeting each other when there was a huge explosion.

“A huge blast threw me on the floor and as soon as I regained my senses, a second blast took place and I saw wounded people everywhere,” Khan told AFP.

An AFP reporter saw shreds of human flesh and bloodstains on the walls and floor of the church, whose windows had been ripped apart by the blast.

Pages of a Bible were scattered near the altar and rice meals mingled with dust on the floor amid shattered benches. Walls were gouged with ball bearings used in the explosives, he said.

Grieving relatives blocked the main Grand Trunk Road highway with bodies of the victims to protest against the killings, an AFP reporter said.

Christians in Karachi, Lahore, Multan and other cities also staged protest rallies to condemn the killings and demand state protection for their lives and properties, AFP reporters said.

In the southern port city of Karachi angry protesters clashed with police when they tried to clear a road in Isa Nagri, a low-income Christian neighbourhood.

Pakistan’s Ulema Council, an  association of leading Muslim scholars, strongly condemned the church attack and said killing innocent people violates the tenets of Islam.

“It is an extremely shameful attack  which has shamed all Pakistanis and Muslims,” Allama Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi, chief of the council, told AFP.

“There is no room for such terrorist acts in Islam.”

Sectarian violence between majority Sunni and minority Shiite Muslims is  on the rise in Pakistan. Sunday’s attack will fuel fears the already beleaguered Christian community could be increasingly targeted.

Militants have carried out  hundreds of bombings targeting security forces and minority Muslim groups they regard as heretical, but attacks on Christians have previously largely been confined to grenade attacks and occasional riots.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is a deeply  conservative province bordering the  tribal districts along the Afghan frontier which are home to Taliban and Al-Qaeda militants.

Provincial lawmaker Ghauri said there  were about 200,000 Christians in the province, of whom 70,000 lived in Peshawar.

“Now after this attack Christians across Pakistan will fear for their lives,” he warned.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif strongly condemned the bombings.

“Terrorists have no religion and  targeting innocent people is against the teachings of Islam and all religions,” he said in a statement.

Sharif said such “cruel acts of  terrorism reflect the brutality and inhumane mindset of the terrorists”.

Only around two percent of Pakistan’s population of 180 million are Christian. The community complains of growing discrimination.

The US Commission on International Religious Freedom has warned that the risk to Pakistan’s minorities has reached crisis levels.

Christians have a precarious existence in Pakistan, often living in slum-like “colonies” cheek-by-jowl with Muslims and fearful of allegations of blasphemy, a sensitive subject that can provoke outbursts of public violence.

In the town of Gojra in Punjab province in 2009, a mob burned 77 houses and killed seven people after rumours that a copy of the Islamic holy book the Koran had been desecrated during a Christian marriage ceremony.

Rimsha Masih, a Christian girl who was arrested for alleged blasphemy last year, fled to Canada with her family in June after the charges were dropped.

Church volunteers threatened with arrest for feeding homeless people biscuits and coffee

cops_homeless_Raleigh_05

RALEIGH, NC — Apparently in Raleigh, NC, feeding those that are hungry is now a jailable offense.  A local non-profit that cares for the city’s homeless was told by police that if they handed out a hot meal from the sidewalk, they would be arrested.  More than 70 people had already arrived, knowing that the volunteers would be there with sausage biscuits and coffee.

“I had to face those who were waiting and tell them that I could not feed them, or I would be arrested.” Rev. Hugh Hollowell, pastor and director of Love Wins Minsitries, said in a blog post.

On August 24th, volunteers with Love Wins Ministries arrived at the sidewalk outside of Moore Square at 9:00am to pass out food to the hungry, like they did every weekend.  Hollowell explained that they had always set up on the sidewalk, a public space, making sure to keep the pathway clear and clean up after themselves.  ”We have operated, unmolested, under this assumption for the last six years,” Hollowell said.

This time, the volunteers were told that passing out the meals would be breaking a city ordinance and that anyone caught doing so would be arrested.  However, no officer would tell the ministry what ordinance it was they were breaking.  Hollowell quoted the officer as saying:

“I am just telling you what is. Now you pass out that food, you will go to jail.”

Human Beans Together speaks with an officer

Police spokesman Jim Sughrue said in an email to WRAL that no one was arrested and that the group was “simply informed” of the rules.  ”Ultimately, the ordinance is a city issue, of course, and when final determinations are made, the police department works with everyone to handle things in the smoothest way possible,” he said.

Love Wins was not the only non-profit to be accosted in the Moore Square area recently.  Human Beans Together volunteer Todd Pratt also told WRAL that his group had been informed that they were no longer allowed to serve the homeless outside Moore Square either.

The city’s choice to threaten those who help the homeless is made worse by the fact that Raleigh’s soup kitchens are closed on the weekends.  On these days, the homeless have nowhere else they can turn for a good meal.  ”I don’t have any family here, not one family member and if these people were not here, I would not make it,” Wanda Borrero, who is currently homeless, told WFLA in response to the crackdown.  ”I mean they might as well kill us. That’s what it’s coming to, they might as well kill us.”

Some think a city project to revitalize the square, set to cost $14.8 million, is the reason for the recent crackdown on charitable giving.

“The police are caught up in a system. The police work for the mayor and the City Council,” Hollowell told WRAL. “(They are) ultimately responsible to the developers who spend lots and lots of money to revitalize downtown.”

This is far from the first time that charity has been rewarded with waste and government violence.  In  February, Lousiana’s State Health Department forced a homeless shelter to destroy 1600 pounds of venison (worth $8000) because “deer are not an approved meat source to be distributed commercially,”CBS Houston reported.  Or New York City, where the Bloomberg administration banned food donations to the city’s government-run homeless shelters more than a year ago.

You don’t have to believe in God to go to heaven, Pope Francis assures sceptics

pope-false-prophet

Here’s more lies from the Pope of the whore of Babylon, saying pretty much that anyone can go to heaven whether you believe Jesus Christ is Lord or not. God’s Word tells us there is only one way to heaven and only one name given under heaven among men whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12) and that is Jesus Christ. Catholicism is no where near true Christianity even though they say they are Christian.  It is a false teaching in the first place. Below is an article from the independent UK: 

In comments likely to enhance his progressive reputation, Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblicanewspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences.

Responding to a list of questions published in the paper by Mr Scalfari, who is not a Roman Catholic, Francis wrote: “You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don’t believe and who don’t seek the faith. I start by saying – and this is the fundamental thing – that God’s mercy has no limits if you go to him with a sincere and contrite heart. The issue for those who do not believe in God is to obey their conscience.

“Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience.”

Robert Mickens, the Vatican correspondent for the Catholic journal The Tablet, said the pontiff’s comments were further evidence of his attempts to shake off the Catholic Church’s fusty image, reinforced by his extremely conservative predecessor Benedict XVI. “Francis is a still a conservative,” said Mr Mickens. “But what this is all about is him seeking to have a more meaningful dialogue with the world.”

In a welcoming response to the letter, Mr Scalfari said the Pope’s comments were “further evidence of his ability and desire to overcome barriers in dialogue with all”.

In July, Francis signaled a more progressive attitude on sexuality, asking: “If someone is gay and is looking for the Lord, who am I to judge him?”

‘EITHER YOU CONVERT TO ISLAM, OR YOU WILL BE BEHEADED’

Scenes in Darkoush, Syria - 21 Apr 2013

The village of Maaloula has been taken over by Syrian rebels associated with al Qaeda, who have stormed the Christian center and offered local Christians a choice: conversion or death. A resident of the town said the rebels shouted “Allahu Akhbar” as they moved through the village, and proceeded to assault Christian homes and churches.

“They shot and killed people,” he said. “I heard gunshots and then I saw three bodies lying in the middle of a street in the old quarters of the village. Where is President Obama to see what has befallen us?” Another witness stated, “I saw the militants grabbing five villagers and threatening them and saying, ‘Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded.’”

The village is located just 25 miles from Damascus, and sites within the village are dedicated as United Nations world heritage sites. Residents still speak Aramaic, the language of Jesus. The rebels who took over the city are associated with the al Nusra Front, an al Qaeda-associated Islamist group. Villagers reported foreign dialects ranging from Tunisian to Libyan, from Moroccan to Chechen.
