Teach the Bible in public schools so that students can learn to better understand the world around them

By Chuck Stetson, Chuck Stetson | Fox News

Most of the recent discussions about teaching the Bible in school miss the key points.

First, teaching the Bible in public schools is important for students because, without knowledge of the Bible, students can’t fully understand the English language, English literature, history, art, music or culture. For example, there are over 1,200 documented references to the Bible in Shakespeare’s 36 plays. If you don’t know the Bible, you really can’t understand Shakespeare. You can’t get past the first sentence of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick – “Call me Ishmael” – if you don’t understand who Ishmael was in the Bible.

Of the allusions that a student needs to know for Advanced Placement in English Composition and Literature, approximately two-thirds are Biblical allusions, according to AP Literature and Composition. If you don’t know the Bible, you won’t do well on this part of the Advanced Placement test.

Further, Essentials in Education, which has the only First Amendment Safe textbook for teaching the Bible in public schools, did a national survey of high school English teachers. The results revealed that 96 percent of English teachers believe that young people were disadvantaged when studying English literature if they didn’t know the Bible. At the college level, 39 university English professors supplied an aggregate of 72 books they collectively teach in freshman year that require a knowledge of the Bible.

Second, students in the public schools are kept from religious teaching of the Bible by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in 1963 when Justice Tom Clark, who wrote the opinion, stated: “It might well be said that one’s education is not complete without a study of comparative religion or the history of religion and its relationship to the advancement of civilization. It certainly may be said that the Bible is worthy of study for its literary and historic qualities. Nothing we have said here indicates that such study of the Bible or of religion, when presented objectively as part of a secular program of education, may not be effected consistently with the First Amendment.”

We need to shift the conversation on teaching the Bible in public schools to what the students need to learn to better understand the world around them.

Further, there is the consensus document “The Bible & Public Schools, A First Amendment Guide,” which our Bible Literacy Project co-published with the First Amendment Center with endorsements from the National School Boards Association, American Federation of Teachers, National Education Association as well as People for the American Way.

Third, in the most recent national survey that we conducted in May 2017, 80 percent of Americans wanted the Bible taught in public schools. However, we know from other surveys that only about 8 percent of public schools do so. Since Bible courses are almost all electives, where only about 25 percent of a class might take the course, the reach is 2 percent. Given that 80 percent of Americans want the Bible taught and only 2 percent are taught this is an eye -opening disconnect.

Fourth, given the lack of responsiveness of public schools to the documented needs of the students, legislation to encourage the teaching of the Bible academically in public schools has been enormously helpful in several regards. While schools, for the most part, ignore it, the legislation does provide protection for the school teachers who want to do what is right for students. It also encourages parents to ask the schools to do what is right for their students.

We have led that effort on a bipartisan basis from an academic point of view, starting with the state of Georgia passing legislation to encourage the teaching of the Bible academically in 2006, followed by South Carolina and Texas in 2007, Tennessee in 2008, Oklahoma in 2010, South Dakota and Arizona in 2012, Arkansas in 2013 and Kentucky in 2013.

We need to shift the conversation on teaching the Bible in public schools to what the students need to learn to better understand the world around them. Our textbook, “The Bible and Its Influence,” is currently being taught in 650 high schools in 45 states and has a ten percent market share in six states. It is the dominant textbook and, as noted above, the only First Amendment Safe one. We need all schools to focus on this. We are beginning to get a lot more momentum now and believe that we are not too far away from reaching a tipping point where instead of teachers and schools having to find a reason to teach the Bible academically, they will soon have to find a reason not to teach it.

He Leaves the Ninety-Nine

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)April 25, 2019

 

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?” (Luke 15:4). Jesus is speaking here of a sheep that has been in the fold. Clearly, this represents a member of Christ’s flock, one that has been well fed and led by a loving shepherd. Yet this sheep had become lost so the shepherd has gone out looking for it.

Note what Jesus says about the shepherd here: “[He goes] after the one which is lost until he finds it.” God never gives up on anyone who belongs to him and has gone astray. Instead, the Shepherd goes out to find that sheep, embraces it, and brings it back into the shelter.

David testified, “If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there” (Psalm 139:8). Simply put, you can go so far into sin that you come to the very brink of hell, and he will still pursue you.

We have all heard the expression “hell on earth.” That is what life is like for those who run from God; their “bed in hell” is an awful condition. It means to be captivated by sin, drifting further and further from the Lord, eventually falling into a nagging fear of being lost forever.

You may have made your bed in hell, but you are not too deep in sin for Jesus to reach you and receive you with open arms. “When [Jesus] has found [the sheep], he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing” (Luke 15:5). When the shepherd finds the lost, injured sheep, he does not take it back to the fold right away. According to the parable, he carries the wounded creature into his house. Then he calls all his friends and neighbors together, exclaiming, “Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!” (15:6).

It does not matter what you have done, how far you may have strayed. Once the Shepherd brings you back, you are redeemed in full and he rejoices over you! (Click to Source)

Your Daily Readings – Verse of the Day – Matthew 22:37 – 38 – April 25, 2019

Matthew 22:1-46

And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,

The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.

Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:

And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.

But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.

Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.

16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.

17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?

19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

21 They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.

23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,

24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:

26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.

27 And last of all the woman died also.

28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,

32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.

34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,

42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David.

43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,

44 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?

45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?

46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

Christian Teacher Called Nazi, Fired For Opposing Transgender Lessons in School

Mother of two’s life turned upside down for critiquing LGBT lessons 

By: Pippa Monroe  |@NeonNettle on 21st April 2019 @ 6.00pm

A Christian teaching assistant who dared to voice her opinion on about transgender teaching at her son’s primary school has been fired. Mother of two Christie Higgs had a faultless track record and reputation in her teaching profession, but that came to a grinding halt when she dared to question LGBT lessons being forced upon her son.

Higg’s life was turned upside down when a single anonymous complaint was accusing her of offending gay and transgender pupils.

trans-les0-39s

Ironically, many gay and transgender teenagers turned to Higgins for emotional and practical support. Following the accusation, Higgs was immediately suspended before being fired.The school governor compared her to a pro-Nazi, far-Right extremist.

School chiefs later question why she had used her school email to receive ‘inspirational’ quotations from the Bible;A school governor told her she had no ‘absolute right’ to freedom of speech.Ironically, many gay and transgender teenagers turned to Higgins for emotional and practical support.

‘I loved my job, and I loved the children that I cared for,’ she says.‘It wasn’t just kids who were in trouble; I also helped children who were gay or changing gender.

When they came to my office, I opened my arms to them and treated them like any other young people.

I never discriminated against them and never would.’According to the DailyMail: Kristie’s ordeal began in October when the Church of England primary school attended by her youngest son adopted ‘No Outsiders’ teaching about sexual minorities.

The same programme has generated a row between schools and Muslim parents in Birmingham.

Books given to children as young as four include stories about a boy who wants to wear a dress and one about a red crayon that discovers it is blue.

Kristie felt that her son was too young to appreciate the issues so, with the agreement of teachers, excluded the nine-year-old from the lessons.

The statement in the books that people can change gender at will jarred with her firmly held Christian beliefs.

The dubious teaching programme ‘No Outsiders’ was created by gay assistant head teacher Andrew Moffat in 2014 to promote tolerance of sexual minorities.

It is now taught at primary schools across England and Wales but has sparked protests among Muslims in Birmingham where parents have withdrawn pupils from lessons.

Children as young as four are taught about same-sex relationships and transgender people using brightly illustrated books.

Kristie felt that her son was too young to appreciate the issues so, with the agreement of teachers, excluded the nine-year-old from the lessons The ‘No Outsiders’ programme is not officially part of the Government projects to make relationships education compulsory in primary schools next year but last month schools watchdog Ofsted gave it is backing.

In a recent interview, Tory MP Andrea Leadsom said it was ‘absolutely right’ for parents to be allowed to choose what age their children should be taught about LGBT issues.

Never anticipating the catastrophic consequences, she posted on her Facebook page a petition, which did not originate from her, against Government plans to make ‘relationships education’ compulsory in schools adding: ‘They are brainwashing our children!’

While some may not agree with the petition’s views, it’s hard to understand why it caused so much offense.

It alerts parents to the plans, pointing out: ‘Children will be taught… gender is a matter of choice, not biology so that it’s up to them what sex they are.

At the same time, it means that expressing and teaching fundamental Christian beliefs, relating to the creation of men and women and marriage, will in practice become forbidden – because they conflict with the new morality and are seen as indoctrination into unacceptable religious bigotry.’

It continues: ‘Freedom of belief will be destroyed, with freedom of speech permitted only for those who toe the party line!’The online petition then warned: ‘We say again, this is a vicious form of totalitarianism aimed at suppressing Christianity.

’Kristie then put up a second Facebook post linking to an American blog criticizing schools for using children’s books to teach youngsters about changing sex.

The blogger, who argues that someone’s sex can only be biologically determined, branded the stories a ‘perversion of the truth’ and ‘a form of child abuse.

’Kristie says: ‘My only crime was to share information about what was happening in schools with other parents and I can’t see what was so terrible about that.

‘I was raising concerns about my son being educated in matters that are not aligned with my religious beliefs and people could choose to agree or disagree.

I would never tell others what to think.‘My bigger worry was that they were introducing the confusing idea of changing gender to children at such a young age.

’Kristie’s accuser, one of her Facebook friends, complained to her headteacher in an email on October 26 last year and asked the school to keep their identity secret.

Kristie has never been allowed to challenge them and still doesn’t know the identity of her accuser.In the message, the unnamed parent, whose child attends Farmor’s School, alleged that Kristie had been ‘posting homophobic and prejudiced views against the LGBT community on Facebook.

’And in light of her ‘offensive’ views, they were worried that the softly spoken pastoral assistant ‘may exert influence over the vulnerable pupils who may end up in isolation’ – the very pupils she had been helping for seven years.

Days later Kristie was called into the headmaster’s office without warning and told she was suspended pending an investigation into whether she had broken the school’s code of conduct.

After hearing the allegations against her, Kristie told the headmaster that millions of Christians around the world shared her view.

He insisted the suspension had nothing to do with her religion, but she suspects he had been warned to say that to avoid allegations of religious discrimination against her.

‘It had everything to do with my Christianity. To suggest otherwise is ridiculous’, she says

.In the weeks after her suspension, which she was banned from discussing with anyone, Kristie was ordered to attend two further ‘investigation’ meetings with the school’s human resources officer

In the second of these sessions, it emerged that the school had been trawling through her work emails in search of any wrongdoing.

Bizarrely, one school official demanded to know if she had used her professional email address to subscribe to a Christian broadcast service that sent out daily inspirational Bible readings.

‘I could not believe they had gone into my email messages looking for evidence that I was a Christian. It felt as if I was being persecuted for my faith,’ Kristie says. (Click to Source)

Pope Francis Warns Catholics in Morocco Not to Convert Muslims to Christianity

Head of Catholic Church issues warning to his Moroccan followers against proselytism 

By: Jay Greenberg  |@NeonNettle on 3rd April 2019 @ 12.00am

Pope Francis warned Catholics in Morocco not to attempt to convert Muslims to Christianity, as he addressed a large crowd of his Moroccan flock on Sunday.

The head of the Catholic Church issued the warning during an address at St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rabat, Morocco before roughly 400 Christian followers.

During the speech, in which the pope also discussed the rights of migrants and promoted open borders, the pope urged Christians to unite with Muslims, before he warned: “Please, no proselytism!”Trying to convert people to Christianity “always leads to an impasse,” said the head of the 1.3 billion-member church, as reported by Agence France-Presse.

In Morocco, there are currently around 30,000 Catholics and 10,000 Protestants in Morocco and they make up less than 1% of the population there, where the majority of citizens follow Sunni Islam.

Following his official visit to the Islamic North African state, Pope Francis blasted nationalism and likened populists to Hitler as he pushed for open borders.

The head of the Catholic church blasted the rise of populism in Western countries, claiming the movement gains followers by stoking fear in the same way as the Nazis did in the 1930s.

The pope warned his followers not to convert Muslims to Christianity, urging them to unite with them instead In a joint declaration on Sunday, Pope Francis and Morocco’s King Mohammed VI signed the “Jerusalem Pact” which they described as a “symbol of peaceful coexistence” for Christians, Jews, and Muslims, according to DW.

Jerusalem was “common patrimony of humanity and especially the followers of three monotheistic religions,” an official statement read.

“The specific multi-religious character, the spiritual dimension and the particular cultural identity of Jerusalem … must be protected and promoted,” the statement added.

The spiritual leader of the world’s Catholics was in Morocco to promote interreligious dialogue.

It was the first visit to Morocco by a pope in 34 years. King Mohammed VI is head of a committee created by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to protect and promote Jerusalem’s religious, cultural and architectural heritage.

Last year, US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, causing anger across the Muslim world, especially from Palestinians that see the city as the capital of their future state.

pope-francis-warns-catholics-morocco-covert-muslim-christianity-32419

Pope Francis met with Moroccan King Mohammed VI to promote inter-religious dialogue

“The Church grows not through proselytism but by attraction,” Francis said, according to Reuters.

“This means, dear friends, that our mission as baptized persons, priests and consecrated men and women, is not really determined by the number or size of spaces that we occupy, but rather by our capacity to generate change and to awaken wonder and compassion.

“Pope Francis has used his two-day trip to push inter-faith dialogue with Islamic leaders.He has also backed Moroccan King Mohammed VI’s efforts to spread a form of Islam that promotes inter-religious dialogue and rejects violence in God’s name.

“[T]he Pope also stressed the need for inter-religious dialogue, saying people should resist ‘classifying ourselves according to different moral, social, ethnic or religious criteria,'” reported Reuters.

The U.S. State Department reports, “According to [Morocco’s] constitution, the country is a Muslim state, with full sovereignty, and Islam is the religion of the state. … “The law penalizes anyone who ’employs enticements to undermine the faith’ or convert a Muslim to another faith and provides punishments of six months to three years’ imprisonment and a fine of 200 to 500 dirhams ($21 to $53).

“It also provides the right to a court trial for anyone accused of such an offense.””Voluntary conversion is not a crime under the law,” according to the State Department.”Sunni Muslims and Jews are the only religious groups recognized in the constitution as native to the country; other faiths are viewed as foreign” in Morrocco, reported the State Department.

“Many foreign-resident Christian churches are registered as associations. Registered foreign-resident churches include the Roman Catholic, Russian Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, Protestant, and Anglican Churches, which maintain different forms of official status.” (Click to Source)

 

 

Severe episode in the Black Sea: Russian ships have been armed by NATO – Intended to be the “Ritsos” (P71)

 

A serious episode in the Black Sea as Russian warships and airplanes encamped NATO ships with the “Ritsos” (P-71) TKK is also targeting.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense’s announcement, Russian warships entered the Black Sea to conduct naval exercises while the NATO Maritime Shield 2019 is under way and “practiced in realistic combat conditions thanks to NATO exercises,” as he attributes.

This is stated in a statement from the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

“The Black Sea Fleet warships sailed from their base to join the naval formation of the other Russian naval units located in the same sea area.

The development of Russian warships took place in pre-determined areas, in order to control and supervise the situation on the seabed, the surface and the air.

In the Russian military mobilization, the Russian A-50 fighter radar, Su-27SM and Su-30 fighters, along with strategic bombers. (they also released video with strategic Tu-160 bombers along with Su-27 fighters flying over the Crimea amid heavy rains)

The South Military Region is ready and the Bal-and-Bastion missiles are activated.

About 50 fighters and helicopters participate in the military exercise, while the 5-hour patrol radars reported 20 targets on the Russian Su-27SM and Su-30 aircraft (20 are also NATO ships).

This is due to NATO’s “Sea Shield 2019” exercise that gave us the opportunity to exercise (!) The Black Sea Fleet at a realistic level of combat, “ says the Russian Defense Ministry.

Earlier, the Russian Navy also made missile shots. The “Ivanovets” and “R-60” corvettes performed drills by launching ultrasonic missiles “Moskit” into surface targets, 30 nautical miles away.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko earlier reported that increased NATO activities in the Black Sea contain risks for the region’s security.

“Our position is clear, any NATO effort in the Black Sea is silly from a military point of view.

They will neither strengthen the security of the region nor NATO itself but create additional military risks.

Russia is ready for any challenges to military security in the Black Sea and will take additional defensive measures if necessary, “ Grushko said.

Let us note that the present at the end of the NATO exercise was given by the President of Romania and General Ciuca with their visit to the NATO warships

Let’s note that in the exercise “SeaShield-2019” participated also the Greek TKK RITSOS (P-71).

Exercise supervised by military representatives from Georgia and Ukraine.

This is the largest naval exercise of its kind, with the participation of 2,200 soldiers and 20 warships from Romania, Bulgaria, Canada, Greece, Turkey, USA and the Netherlands.

In the context of the war simulation exercise, “common combat procedures” against the “threats emerging” in the Black Sea were carried out according to the briefing, due to Russia’s “unacceptable behavior” in the region, as stated previously by the Permanent US Representative to NATO Kate Hattschon.

NYC Mayor De Blasio tells citizens: We own your bodies, and we can force you to be injected with anything we want

Friday, April 12, 2019 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has declared that residents do not own their own bodies. The city of New York can demand that all citizens be injected with literally anything the government declares to be a “vaccine,” even when those vaccines contain aborted human fetal tissue cells, toxic aluminum metals, inflammatory adjuvants and other dangerous, deadly chemicals.

This is the latest attempt by authorities in New York to obliterate human rights and roll out a medical dictatorship where citizens have zero rights to defend their own bodies against risky medial interventions that are demanded at gunpoint.

PJ Media, which has emerged as one of the best independent media websites covering liberty and individual rights, has published an especially noteworthy article on this issue. Authored by Megan Fox, the story is entitled, “Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Mandatory Measles Vaccination Order Faces Legal Challenges.”

We are republishing it here with full credit to the original author and PJ Media website. This in important read. Share everywhere.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Mandatory Measles Vaccination Order Faces Legal Challenges

by Megan Fox, PJMedia.com

In an unusual and extreme move, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio declared a state of emergency over a measles outbreak in the Orthodox Jewish community and is demanding forced vaccinations of everyone within four zip codes of the affected areas. Violators face fines up to $1000. This includes babies six months of age, even though the MMR is not recommended for anyone under twelve months of age.

The Children’s Health Defense will be filing a legal challenge to the order, which comes on the heels of a New York Supreme Court ruling that struck down the Rockland County banon unvaccinated children in public spaces.

Children’s Health Defense (CHD) is supporting a legal challenge to this dangerous, unprecedented overreach. While the City has unquestionable authority to control disease outbreaks, it may not violate the bedrock principle of prior, free and informed consent to all medical interventions, including vaccines. This is a fundamental human right. The City may quarantine, isolate, trace contacts and strongly urge vaccination, but it may not impose such a draconian mandate without demonstrating necessity, reasonableness, proportionality, harm avoidance, non-discrimination, due process and equal protection. The Commissioner has failed to do this; the City’s actions violate New York State law.

CHD board member Mary Holland commented, “I am shocked that Mayor de Blasio would resort to such police state techniques to control an outbreak of measles. I don’t believe the City’s actions will withstand legal scrutiny.” CHD Chairman Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is confident their legal challenge will prevail.

This case goes beyond a dispute over religious freedom. Thanks to the Merck federal whistleblower litigation, we now know that Merck’s MMR should have never been approved, much less mandated. To get its license Merck allegedly ordered its scientists to falsify efficacy data to fraudulently conceal the fact that the mumps component quickly wanes, triggering dangerous outbreaks in older populations where it can cause sterility in men and women. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 150 outbreaks resulting in 9,200 cases of mumps in fully vaccinated adults, dwarfing the recent measles outbreaks. We are confident that no American court will allow government bureaucrats to force American citizens to take risky pharmaceutical products against their will.

Merck is currently defending itself against claims of falsifying data brought by two former employees.

Medical corporation Merck & Co. will decidedly face the music in the ongoing class action and related anti-trust lawsuit involving its mumps vaccine – a product routinely given to babies and children for generations. The issue, which involves allegations of false compliance with FDA standards for vaccines, prompted a False Claims Act lawsuit: United States v. Merck & Co. This case was commenced by two virologists once employed with Merck, alleges a systematic and long-standing commitment by the company to lying about the efficacy of its mumps vaccination, thereby prompting possible exposure to liability under the federal False Claims Act.

Governor Cuomo voiced concerns about the legality of de Blasio’s emergency order to forcibly vaccinate conscientious objectors. “Look, it’s a serious public health concern, but it’s also a serious First Amendment issue and it is going to be a constitutional, legal question,” Cuomo said in a radio interview on WAMC. “Do we have the right — does society, government have the right to say ‘you must vaccinate your child because I’m afraid your child is going to infect my child, even if you don’t want it done and even if it violates your religious beliefs?”

Some have asked how de Blasio is planning to determine who is or isn’t vaccinated to enforce his order. According to the mayor, they will be using “disease detectives.” de Blasio explained, “It parallels what a police detective does. If someone has symptoms, they will literally interview them to figure out everywhere they’ve been, everyone they might have come in contact with, and then they go reach out to that whole network to make sure people are vaccinated.” It’s unclear whether “make sure people are vaccinated” means “hold them down and inject them against their will.” (Click to Source)

From Sri Lanka To Paris, Christianity Is Under All-Out Attack While The ‘Religion Of Peace’ Creates Panic And Sows Chaos

– Horrific Massacre Will Reverberate Around The World

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

April 24, 2019

In this April 8th story at the Baltimore Sun that reported on a local story that received very little attention from the national mainstream media because it went completely against their agenda, they reported upon a 28-year-old Maryland man who, inspired by ISIS, had stolen a U-Haul van and planned to use it to mow down as many pedestrians as he could at a popular tourist attraction in Maryland. Thankfully, he was caught after law enforcement discovered the stolen truck and arrested him.

After being arrested, he told law enforcement officials “I was just going to keep driving and driving and driving. I wasn’t going to stop”, telling authorities he wanted to create “panic and chaos” like the deadly ISIS-inspired truck attack that killed 84 people in Nice, France, in 2016. Yet ‘the kicker‘ to the Baltimore Sun story came in the last few sentences when reporters interviewed an acquaintance.:

Acquaintances of Henry expressed surprise at the allegations.

Osman Alaalla, 61, came to pray Monday evening at a 5 p.m. service at the Islamic Society of Germantown. He said Henry typically led that service.

Alaalla described Henry as a quiet, nice man but said he didn’t know anything about his personal life. He said he would come to pray and leave.

“He’s very peaceful,” he said. 

Fast forward a few weeks to this Daily Mail story which reports that prior to blowing himself and countless others up in one of the Resurrection Sunday church bombings in Sri Lanka, one of the bombers was captured on video casually walking up to the church, ‘peacefully‘ patting a young child upon the head before he entered the church and caused total destruction.

If those two stories illustrate the ‘religion of peace‘ that Muslims say Islam is, then the entire world is in huge trouble because the very last thing we’re going to get is ‘peace‘ from a political philosophy that has been at war with the rest of the world for over 1,000 years.

As Susan Duclos had reported on ANP on April 22nd, soon after the cowardly bombings that took the lives of 100’s, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the mainstream media quickly colluded around a narrative of the bombings that didn’t include ‘Christians‘, and never touching upon Islam.

Yet while Christians and the entire world were outraged by the cowardly Christ Church, New Zealand mosque shootings allegedly carried out by one man, who the mainstream media quickly labeled a ‘white supremacist‘, why was the msm so eager to placate Muslims by leaving the words ‘Islamic terror attack‘ out of most of their stories on the Sri Lanka bombings?

As Susan had also reported within her story, rather than expressing compassion and sorrow following the brutal Sri Lanka church attacks, liberals actually had the nerve to attack Christians. Yes, the same left which screamed out ‘en masse‘ for guns to be banned following the ‘New Zealand event‘ talked nothing about banning bombs nor banning radical Islamists from Western nations.

Now that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks, actually claiming they were revenge for what happened in New Zealand, where does the world go from here? As the Daily Beast had asked just days ago, was the Sri Lanka massacre an Islamic bid to revive their ‘global holy war‘ against infidels? As their story warned, the attacks in Sri Lanka will be sure to reverberate all around the world as Christian churches aren’t the only targets of these radicals with Jewish synagogues, Buddhist shrines, and Shiite Muslim mosques prime targets for violent jihadists as well.

So why have Europe and Democrats gone so far to placate Islam when Islam would never do the same for other religions?

In the outstanding graphic seen above from Ben Garrison of GRRGraphics, we see in an illustration what words alone cannot possibly adequately describe and a picture that speaks much louder than words. Does anybody really think that most Muslims will welcome most Christians and other religions into their lands with open arms, to build churches and other places of worship?

Yet as we’ve reported time and again on ANP, the ‘West‘ is doing just that for those who’d rather lop off our heads.

But as we see in this interesting story over at The Intercept, not all Muslims hate Christians with the author of their story, a Muslim man, calling out other Muslims and liberals in America for their diminishing of the ongoing war against Christianity that we’re seeing while calling on leftists and other Muslims to defend Christians under persecution.

In his story titled “When Christians Are Under Attack, Muslims and the Left Need to Defend Them“, Mehdi Hasan argues FROM CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND, to Xinjiang, China, there is a war on Muslims. Many of us have spent years writing about it and condemning it. But let’s be clear: From the Middle East to parts of Asia and Africa, there is a war on Christians too. His story came with some blunt and refreshing words of truth.:

I am a Muslim, and I consider myself to be on the left, but I’m embarrassed to admit that in both Muslim and left circles, the issue of Christian persecution has been downplayed and even ignored for far too long.

Yet another Muslim man, Mohamad Tawhidi, who calls himself the ‘Imam of Peace‘ but who the mainstream media calls a ‘fake Imam‘ because he regularly criticizes Islam, has warned that Islam must be reformed in order for it to survive and that numerous Islamic texts should be banned because they encourage terrorism against ‘infidels‘.

And while Tawhidi’s actions have proven that he is a ‘peaceful Muslim‘ man, for calling for peace, radical Muslims have put a fatwa upon his head, calling for his death for his calling out of radical Islam. Some ‘religion of peace‘, huh?

In the 2nd video below from Infowars, Paul Joseph Watson talks with us about the mainstream media now expecting ‘right wing violence‘ against Muslims to pick up following the Sri Lanka massacres while the 3rd and final video below is one that Steve Quayle had linked to on his website days ago titled “THE UNHOLY BOOK OF ISLAM: A GUIDE TO THE DARK SIDE“, a video which explores the Notre Dame Cathedral fire and the massacre in Sri Lanka and their ties to Islam.

With the horrific Sri Lanka massacres following by just weeks the torching of the Notre Dame Cathedral in France and countless attacks upon Christian churches by Muslims all across the planet, we should all be prepared for anything in the days and weeks ahead.  (Click to Source)

Thousands of Outraged Parents Rally At State Capitol Over Hyper-Sexualized K-12 Curriculum

Sexually explicit language unsuitable for radio is taught to elementary school children

By Katy Grimes, March 28, 2019 3:35 pm

California public schools aren’t your grandfather’s schools any longer. Today’s lesson plans are written by Social Justice Warriors and LGBT activists, and enshrined in the California education code. But what is being foisted on children as young as age five, cannot even be uttered on the public airways, because radio stations would receive a violation letter from the Federal Communications Commission.

If sexually explicit language is unsuitable for public consumption on radio, wouldn’t it also be unsuitable for elementary school children?

Thousands of fired up moms, dads, preachers, pastors, teachers, grandparents and concerned citizens rallied at the State Capitol Thursday to protest plans to add even more sexualized content to California’s K-12 “health” curriculum. Informed Parents of California and the California Family Council organized the rally over the curriculum proposals, and then walked a few blocks to the State Department of Education for the Instructional Quality Commission Meeting to make public comment on the proposed Health Curriculum Frameworks.

The public comments went on for hours.

What’s their beef?

The California Department of Education, Instructional Quality Commission, and State Board of Education are currently in the process of revising the 2019 Health Education Curriculum Framework for California Public Schools, Kindergarten Through 12th Grade, scheduled for adoption by the State Board of Education in May 2019.

Informed Parents of California pulled together the most objectionable portions of the 1000 page framework document in a 24 page summary with excerpts for K-6th grade health lessons, complete with pictures of some of the recommended supplemental materials. This document includes:

Elementary School: It is permissible to teach knowledge and skills related to comprehensive sexual health and HIV prevention education in grades kindergarten through grade six (K–6), inclusive. All instruction and materials in grades K–6 must meet the instructional criteria or baseline requirements in EC Section 51933. Content that is required in grades 7–12 may be also be included in an age-appropriate way in earlier grades. (EC sections 51933, 51934[b].)
(This information has been copied directly from the California Department of Education Website.

Kindergarten: “Students also learn about individual differences, including gender, from a very early age… students can still begin to challenge gender stereotypes in a way that is age appropriate. While students may not fully understand the concepts of gender expression and identity, some children in kindergarten and even younger have identified as transgender or understand they have a gender identity that is different from their sex assigned at birth. This may present itself in different ways including dress, activity preferences, experimenting with dramatic play, and feeling uncomfortable self-identifying with their sex assigned at birth.”

Grade 1: Parents, guardians, or caretakers receive a handout with suggestions on how to initiate a conversation on growth and development with their child. Books such as It’s Not the Stork! A Book About Girls, Boys, Babies, Bodies, Families and Friends by Robie H. Harris (2008) or Who Are You?: The Kids Guide to Gender Identity by Brook Pessin‐Whedbee (2017) can be shared together.

In Grade 4 the California Department of Education teaches, “An estimated 3.1 percent of California high school students reported being sexually active before the age of 13. Approximately 32.3 percent of high school students are sexually active, making sexual health education a critical content area in late elementary.”

This curriculum also includes:

  • Kindergarten books that introduce 5-year-olds to families with members who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.
  • First grade gender vocabulary lessons on words such as third gender, trans, queergender, non-binary, gender fluid, gender neutral, agender, bigender, and two-spirits.
  • Lessons for 1st graders that provide detailed descriptions of sex with these quotes such as: “The man’s penis goes inside the woman’s vagina,” and “sperm can swim out through the small opening in the man’s penis – and into the woman’s vagina.”
  • Pictures in a book for third graders showing a cartoon drawing of a penis ejaculating sperm while inserted into a vagina.
  • Lessons which teach third graders that sexual reproductive organs don’t always match a person’s gender.
  • Recommendations that fifth graders are taught sexual health lessons that must include examples of same-sex sexual activity. Students should not be separated by sex during these lessons to avoid “misgendering” students.
  • Books that introduce 10-year-olds to anal sex, and the slang for male and female genitals.

Grade 5: “Fifth-grade students will have an opportunity to learn that gender is not strictly defined by physical anatomy or sex assigned at
birth. Rather, students understand that gender refers to attitudes, feelings, characteristics, and behaviors that a given culture associates with being male or female, sometimes labeled “masculine” and “feminine.” Moreover, a person’s gender identity refers to their sense of self, while gender expression refers to their outward gender presentation including physical appearance and behaviors. Understanding individual differences will help students feel accepted and be more accepting.”

Rally Opposing Sexualized Curriculum

Several parents at the rally had some of these authorized school books with them. The photos (by CaliforniaGlobe) are from these books, teaching children as young as age 5, inappropriate slang for male and female body parts which might even make a drunken sailor blush.

At the rally there were parents from all walks of life, ethnicities and religions. Speakers included Kira Davis, an op-ed journalist and co-host of the Smart Girl Politics podcast, Gina Yee, a children’s minister and author of the upcoming book “Purity,” America Figueroa and her son Samuel, Marlo Tucker, State Direcdtor of Concerned Women of California, and George Rosca, a Romanian man whose parents and 12 siblings escaped Communism in Romania, came to America and became U.S. Citizens, and is now a pastor. Each spoke passionately and factually about the indoctrination and damage to young children the hyper-sexualized “health” curriculum inflicts. Bosca talked about the highest ever suicide rates among kids and teens because while they are being sexualized and taught they can have sex whenever and with whomever they choose, they are not being taught about the consequences of such decisions. “Meaninglessness is leading to more suicides than ever,” Bosca said. “And the collusion is deep. The ACLU and Planed Parenthood have been working with the Department of Education for years,” he added. “It is up to a parent revolution to make changes.”

A public school teacher spoke warning that this curriculum is being sprung on teachers as well. “We’ve got to blow the lid off of this, because teachers are also scared.” She told parents to “back down these superintendents and school board presidents. We’ve been waiting for you.”

The founders of Informed Parents of California, Stephanie Yates and Aileen Blachowski had one message: “Hands off our kids!” And they said that if this curriculum isn’t removed, “you tell the schools that you’ll be removing your kids.”

Senators Brian Jones (R-El Cajon) and Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga) addressed the thousands, and both men told the parents, “Never give up.” Morrrell said how great it was “to be out of the Capitol building, with people who are normal.”

The rally Master of Ceremonies was Sacramento radio talk show host Phil Cowan from AM1380TheAnswer. (Click to Source)

2019 is the year when the farming industry began to unravel as extreme weather and disease is hitting already disease around the world

Friday, 12 April 2019

2019, will be the year when the farming industry began to unravel as China, who produce half of the world’s pork is set to drop by almost one-third because 200 million pigs are to be culled or die from being infected as African swine fever spreads through the country.
According to Rabobank, China’s pork production is seen at around 38 million tonnes in 2019 versus 54 million tonnes last year, Sherrard told Reuters, citing the company’s latest forecast.
That would be the lowest level in at least 20 years, according to the National Bureau of Statistics data, with repercussions across the global market for all animal proteins.
The decline would be nearly 30 per cent larger than annual output in the United States and equivalent to Europe’s yearly pork supply, Rabobank said.
The United States Department of Agriculture has forecast a smaller decline in China’s pork output this year, of around 10 per cent.

2019 is now officially the worst agricultural disaster in modern American history with catastrophic flooding.
The US is experiencing unprecedented and catastrophic flooding with NOAA issuing a warning the flooding will continue through to the end of June.
With more than 90% of the upper midwest and great planes still covered by nearly 11 inches of snow and all that snow is beginning to melt.
That means the US will transform from one of the worst winters in modern history into a flood season that has already taken an apocalyptic turn for farmers across the US.
Millions of acres of farmland are already under water meaning thousands of farmers will not be able to plant crops this summer, with thousands of more farmers who have been financially ruined by the floods and will never return to farming again.

I Australia, after years of drought, 2019, has delivered the hottest January ever, the wettest February ever, the hottest start to Autumn in 30 years and the hottest March heatwave in 52 years hitting already struggling Aussie farmers hard.

Thousands of cattle were lost in the first three months of this year.

In the first 4 months of 2019, heatwaves in the southern hemisphere are killing wildlife ‘on a biblical scale’ from record-breaking heat.

Record heat in Australia, Chile, Argentina and Brazil with NASA and NOAA claiming the last 5 years have been the warmest since modern records began.
The intense heat in Uruguay that affected the country in 2019 did not affect only human beings, who persistently complained about the thermal sensations through social networks, chicken farmers, in particular, suffered the heat stroke in its economy when more than 100,000 chickens died by high temperatures in Montevideo,
Thousands of cattle died as temperatures hit 45 deg C, (110 deg F) early in 2019 in Argentina.
High temperatures, humidity and the suspicion of toxins in the food as a predisposing factor caused the death of thousands of cattle in at least four Santa Fe feedlots, Argentina at the beginning of  2019.

Iran’s farmers have had farms destroyed by unprecedented floods which have killed more than 70 people, destroyed or damaged 100,000 homes and damaged one-third of the country’s roads. thousands of cattle are thought to have been killed in the floods.

2019, South-East Africa.

It has been described as a ‘disaster on a scale we have ever experienced’
The full scope of devastation across three African nations may not be known for months to come after the Cyclone Idai death toll approaches 1,000.
As well as the immediate threat caused by flooding, hunger and illness are growing concerns, with crops and wildlife destroyed and waterborne diseases likely to spread. (Click to Source)
