WATCH: Baker Who Faced Supreme Court Stuns Critics With Humbling Confession

He reserves and deserves these rights as an Amerian Christian, and they’re the same rights guaranteed to all Americans.

Published

on

The LGBT community largely bemoaned the outcome of the highly anticipated religious liberty case brought before the Supreme Court last week, in which Christian baker Jack Philips was granted his first and ultimate victory over the same-sex couple for whom he refused to bake a wedding cake five years ago.

Philips is the owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop, who the Colorado Human Rights Commission had ruled against when the case was brought before them by David Mullins and Charlie Craig.

Mullins and Craig had tried to purchase a cake for their wedding from Philips in 2012, who declined on the basis of religious objections to same-sex weddings, though he informed the couple he’d be happy to provide them with any other product in his bakery or employ his services for anything else.

And he ended up before the Colorado Human Rights Commission on the basis of discrimination against his potential clients.

Here’s the thing: the LGBT left, does not view rights as something inherent that the government cannot restrict, but rather something the government can grant and restrict at their pleasure, with enough pressure from outraged social justice warriors, of course.

So when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Philips, they saw it as a defeat for civil liberties, rather than a victory for religious freedom.

What they miss, of course, is that liberty was upheld for all Americans when the court ruled that the government may not apply religious hostility to any case. It also protected the LGBT community from prosecution from courts who may be overly hostile towards their lifestyles.

These are the values our nation was based on–and they’re the values Philips himself holds.

In his first cable interview since the ruling, he clarified to Fox and Friends hosts that his personal objections to the messages conveyed by his culinary artistry are universally applied to everyone who walks into his shop.

“I don’t do cakes for Halloween; I wouldn’t make cakes that would be Anti-American, or disparage people in any way, including people who identify as LGBT. If somebody asked me to do a cake like that, then I would tell them no,” he explained.

These are Christian values. These are American values. This is the liberty we are assured will not be infringed by our Constitution. Philips refused to bake a wedding cake because of his biblical values–but he also would refuse to bake a cake that sent any kind of godless message about same-sex weddings as well. He reserves and deserves these rights as an Amerian Christian, and they’re the same rights guaranteed to all Americans.

Here is Philips humbling and touching interview following his victory at the Supreme Court:

Argentine Photographer Captures INCREDIBLE Image of Christ-Like Cloud

Published

It cannot be denied that our world is in the midst of turmoil unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. From Birmingham to Beijing, we are seeing unprecedented poverty, crime, hate, violence, war, famine….you name it.  Combine these issues with a mainstream media who is salivating at the chance to rile us up for ratings and money, and the world becomes a downright scary place. Where do we turn when the world seems to shun us?  For some, the answers lie in the bottom of a bottle.  For others, it’s self-harm or outward violence. For many, however, their faith is their rock.  They turn to the religious world for answers to the questions that plague us today, and, often, they discover signs of encouragement. Such is the case today in Argentina. Monica Aramayo was in San Salvador de Jujuy in Argentina when she noticed the holy figure shining through the thick clouds Social media user Mariela Romano said: “The Lord will soon come for us all and we should be ready. While another said: “Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.” The photo has to be seen to be believed. https://twitter.com/faithdefender/status/1128809009153097728 The pose and grand scale of the image has reminded many observers of the famous Christ The Redeemer statue in Brazil. https://twitter.com/OtravelAI/status/1082513665700507648 And while the cloud formation certainly isn’t going to change the minds of the unfaithful, it does provide us all with a reminder that we are loved, and we must remain harmonious with one another on this turbulent little space rock.

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia

The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.

Published

on

Pope Benedict

The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting.  There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe.  The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food.  In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…
