CNN blames Christians for Obamacare problems

CNN blames Christians for Obamacare problems

by Joel B. Pollak CNN has blamed Christians for the problem of Americans without health insurance, calling it “The Obamacare ‘scandal’ you haven’t heard about.” In an article on CNN.com’s Belief Blog, CNN writer John Blake says that, while famous pastors “preach in states where crosses and church steeples dot the skyline,” they do nothing about “the poor who can’t get the health insurance they would receive if they lived elsewhere.” That refers, in turn, to the decision of twenty-five states not to participate in Obamacare’s expanded Medicaid funding. The states were allowed to opt out following last year’s controversial…

Charles Jacobs: “Silence As the Christians Die”

Dr. Charles Jacobs In this powerful piece for the Jewish Advocate, Jewish human rights activist Dr. Charles Jacobs cites CSI’s Genocide Warning for religious minorities in the Middle East, and examines the reasons for the West’s silence on this issue: Why is the West so shamefully silent in the face of the onslaught against Christian peoples and communities throughout the Islamic realm? If the reasons for this are not understood – and if the silence continues – we are almost sure to witness bloody religious/ ethnic “cleansings,” if not actual genocides. The Syrian Christians in Damascus, whose church has just…

President Obama declares the future must not belong to practicing Christians

President Obama declares the future must not belong to practicing Christians

By: Erick Erickson In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly today the President of the United States declared that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Already, the media and the left are in full denial, probably based on their general lack of understanding of theology. This would have been a gaffe had Mitt Romney said it. But with Barack Obama, he’s just speaking bold truths. His bold truth declares that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Pay careful attention to what he says. The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet…

Will Jews, Christians finally join forces in battle against genocidal Islamic hatred?

Will Jews, Christians finally join forces in battle against genocidal Islamic hatred?

By Giulio Meotti The Coliseum, where thousands upon thousands of "Judaeis" have been massacred by the Roman emperors, became for one night an arena for alliance between Christians and Jews against “odium fidei,” or religious hatred. B Last Wednesday in Rome, Jewish leaders for the first time rallied alongside Christians in a candlelit vigil to denounce the attacks in the Middle East and Africa. It was “interfaith” or “ecumenical” dialogue at its best. Forget the theological questions, which remain unsolvable. There is an urgent mutual solidarity about the single most defining issue of our time: religious freedom. It is about…
