This is why religious liberty is so important.

Being a Christian is hazardous for your health in the modern world, and that’s not just physically speaking. Apparently, it can be bad for your career, social standing, and all sorts of other things, thanks to the hatred of the left for all things related to the Lord of Glory.

The latest example of this comes from the tale of a Finnish politician who is now under investigation for a hate crime. What did she do to earn such a charge? Posted a Bible verse on her Facebook account.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the hatred by the world Jesus warned us about.

Police are investigating former Interior Minister Päivi Räsänen, a Christian Democrat MP, after she shared the Bible verse.

The verse, Romans 1:24-27, accompanied a criticism of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland over its participation in the Helsinki LGBT Pride events that took place in June.

The New International Version translation of Romans 1:24-27 reads:

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Rasanen’s hubby is a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church, captioned the post saying, “How can the church’s doctrinal foundation, the Bible, be compatible with the lifting up of shame and sin as a subject of pride? #LGBT #HelsinkiPride2019.”

The man is absolutely spot on in what he said. The Bible makes it clear that both homosexuality and exulting in one’s sin are both egregious offenses to a holy, righteous God. Therefore, those engaging in both of those heinous acts of treason against the Creator need to repent of their sins and put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ for salvation.

Listen. We’re all sinners, okay? No one is exempt. A homosexual is no worse a sinner than anyone else, yours truly included. My sins are different, but they’re still sins. Our only hope is Jesus. Period. There’s no other way to heaven. If you continue to reject the Lord, you wind up paying for your crimes in Hell, straight or gay.

Here’s a bit more about the investigation:

“The pre-trial investigations have not yet been completed. Police will provide more details once the investigations have been completed or presented to a prosecutor for consideration of charges,” the spokesperson said.

In August, Räsänen tweeted, “I am not concerned on my part, as I trust this will not move on to the prosecutor. However, I am concerned if quoting the Bible is considered even ‘slightly’ illegal. I hope this won’t lead to self-censorship among Christians.”

Christians all over the world are being persecuted by those in power and authority for sharing the truth of Scripture. If you don’t think it can — and already is — happening here, you’re sorely mistaken.

This is why Christians need to be advocates fighting for religious freedom at all costs. If we don’t have this liberty, the government will oppress the church, no doubt about it. Then again, given the condition of the modern American church, maybe that’s exactly what it needs.

Let’s hope not.

Save conservative media!

Widow Of Man Mary Trump Said Was Paid To Take SAT For President Trump Denies Claim

Published

on

The widow of a former friend of President Trump’s has come out and denied a claim that her late husband was paid to take the SAT for him, a claim that comes from the pages of a new book by Mary Trump, the president’s niece. Pam Shriver, who is a former tennis superstar and current tennis analyst, responded to the claim by denying any knowledge of her late husband, Joe Shapiro, having ever took the standardized test for the president. Here’s more information via The Washington Examiner: “When you put somebody’s name in print in a book, you want to make sure the facts around it are correct, especially if they are not living because it’s not like Joe is here and he would have known how to deal with this,” Shriver said in a video posted to social media on Wednesday. She also said her late husband met Trump during their time at the University of Pennsylvania, which would have been years after the president had taken the SATs, because he originally went to Fordham University for two years before transferring. “My late husband Joe Shapiro passed away 21 years ago. He was a man of great integrity, honesty; he was a hard worker. He was literally the smartest person I ever met,” Shriver added. The book by Mary Trump, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man contains the following passage concerning the allegation: “To hedge his bets, he enlisted Joe Shapiro, a smart kid with a reputation for being a good test taker, to take his SATs for him. That was much easier to pull off in the days before photo IDs and computerized records. Donald, who never lacked for funds, paid his buddy well.” There’s no actual proof this event…

Supreme Court Says Manhattan District Attorney Is Allowed To Obtain Trump Tax Returns

Published

on

A new ruling handed down from the Supreme Court states that President Trump’s accountants will have to release years of financial records and tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney, ruling that he doesn’t have immunity from a grand jury investigation in NYC. Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who also happens to be a Democrat, a fact which will surprise absolutely no one, will now be allowed to the see returns in question after the justices voted 7-2 in favor of the release of the tax returns being released. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s two appointees to the court, joined the majority. However, Trump prevailed in the second case as the justices said it would not allow Congress to obtain tax and financial records, kicking the issue back to the lower courts. Unlike other recent presidents, Trump has refused to publish his tax returns and other financial papers that would provide a snapshot of his wealth. Back in May, there was three hours of oral testimony held by teleconference in which lawyers went back and forth over whether or not the House of Representatives and a New York prosecutor could subpoena Trump’s banks and accounting firm for his financial documents. There are three House committees who are seeking to get a peek at records from Mazars, the accountants for the Trump Organization, and two banks that gave loans to several Trump businesses. Democratic leaders think that the documents in question will give insight into whether or not Trump borrowed cash from, or had dealings with, Russian companies before taking office. Yes, that’s right. The left is still harping on the Russia nonsense, digging and rooting through every bit of garbage they can find to uncover whether or not there’s some sort of connection between…
