Faith leaders met in Dallas, Texas, in May for Bishop TD Jakes‘ 2017 International Pastors and Leadership Conference, where they discussed a range of issues, including how the church addresses the needs of the congregation across political and economic lines.

NewsOne Now broadcast live from the event, with host Roland Martin zeroing in on the session,”The Polemics of Politics and the Pulpit: Rightly Dividing Between Church and State,” which was moderated by April D. Ryan.

Pfleger argued that everyone has a lobbyist but the poor.

“The church is supposed to be the lobbyist for the poor, and if the church is not the lobbyist for the poor and the disenfranchised,” Pfleger argued, “We have failed.” ……

One of the predictions is Ireland will have an Isis lone wolfe attack and I personally have said that myself past two years and people say nooooo.

With a print run of 47,000 copies, it has enjoyed a revival in recent years due to its accurate predictions and its love of futurism. So what will be happening in our world in 2017?
-2017 is the year of the global economic downturn. This is the year to hang on to your wallet.
-It will be another year of average weather, nothing to blistering and nothing too freezing. A white Christmas for December of 2017.

Faith Goldy: Sharia Fines Come to Canada

 

 

I thought there was a separation between mosque and state in Canada.

I was wrong.

Now, failure to be sharia compliant — on your own property — can result in an enormous fine!

John Alabi, a 52-year-old Ontario man, is being issued a sharia ticket for $12,000 by the province’s Human Rights Tribunal.

His sin? He didn’t take his shoes off in his Muslim tenants’ unit where they prayed while showing the space to potential occupants.

John is a Christian who came to Canada 22 years ago from Nigeria. Since then, he’s followed our laws and worked hard, currently carrying two jobs to ensure his family is cared for. John is the sort of man every Canadian should be proud of; but instead, he’s being labelled a human rights violator– because he refused to submit to his tenants’ religion!

So now, in addition to paying Walid Madkour and his wife Heba Ismail six thousand dollars each for injury to their feelings and dignity, John must also take an e-course on “Human Rights in Rental Housing.” John told me he’s worried his case will set precedent for other landlords who will also have to become sharia compliant.

After meeting with John, it was hard not to be affected.

When did a failure to remove ones’ shoes in a Muslim prayer space become against the law in Canada? When did failure to make your property sharia-compliant become punishable by fine? Isn’t there supposed to be a separation of mosque and state in this country? If so, why is sharia law being pushed on John to the tune of $12,000?

So, this is what we’re going to do: We’re crowdfunding John’s sharia ticket.

Honestly, I hate the idea of money going to these Muslim bullies who are inflicting their worldview onto an unwilling individual; but I hate the idea of John fighting this battle alone even more.

Donate below to show patriot solidarity is still stronger than sharia in this country!

Lehrerin trägt nun FISCH statt KREUZ an Halskette – wieder Ärger?

Lehrerin trägt nun Fisch statt Kreuz an Halskette – wieder Ärger?
Auch wegen des Fisches könnte der evangelischen Christin nun Ärger drohen: Ist der Christenfisch ein “christliches Symbol”? – „Berliner Zeitung“ wertet, dass die Lehrerin durch den Fischanhänger erneut „provoziere“

Berlin (kath.net) Die Berliner Lehrerin, die sich gezwungen gesehen hatte, nach einer entsprechenden Dienstanweisung das Kreuz von ihrer Halskette zu entfernen, erschien nun offenbar mit einem Fisch-Anhänger zum Schulunterricht. Von der Bildungsverwaltung sowie der Evangelischen Kirche Berlin-Brandenburg wurden diese Angaben der „Berliner Zeitung“ bisher allerdings noch nicht bestätigt. Eine Sprecherin der Berliner Bildungsverwaltung äußerte lediglich, dass die Lehrerin auch dieses Symbol abnehmen müsste, sofern es sich wirklich um ein religiöses Symbol handle

Der Fisch ist seit der Antike ein Erkennungszeichen von Christen. Zum einen handelte es sich im Mittelmeerraum, in dem die Christen der ersten Jahrhunderte lebten, um ein unauffälliges Alltagssymbol. Zum anderen stehen die Buchstaben des griechischen Wortes für Fisch, „ichtys“, für das christliche Kurzbekenntnis „Jesus Christus, Sohn Gottes, Erlöser“.

Die „Berliner Zeitung“ unterstellte in einem Artikel, dass die Lehrerin erneut „provoziere“.

In den Sozialen Netzwerken werden die Vorgänge aufmerksam beobachtet. Ein User kommentierte beispielsweise: „Soweit ging nicht einmal die DDR“.
