“I Can Only Imagine” producers made an announcement Hollywood will hate

29

The blockbuster hit “I Can Only Imagine” broke down anti-Christian barriers in Hollywood.

Grossing a whopping $83 million, the top-grossing independent film of 2018 turned heads.

And now the two brothers who produced the film are on the verge of transforming Hollywood.

Andy and Jon Erwin made Christian film history this year with the success of “I Can Only Imagine.”

The film captivated audiences with the true story behind MercyMe’s chart topping song.

Now, looking to build on their success, the brothers a launching their own production company, “Kingdom.”

Jon Erwin recently described the project as a “Christian Pixar or a Christian Marvel” in an interview with Baptist Press:

Erwin, his brother Andy and their production partner Kevin Downes have formed a new filmmaking company, Kingdom, which will bring multiple filmmakers together to create a “pipeline of event movies” that proclaim a biblical message and “serve the church,” Erwin told Baptist Press.

“We’re going to be unveiling what I feel is a great leap forward and a vision for what can be accomplished in Hollywood on behalf of Christianity,” Erwin said. “And we’re also going to be unveiling multiple films. It’s going to be real exciting.”

The vision for Kingdom, Erwin said, began with a desire to impact the culture and spread the Gospel through movies, which he calls “America’s second largest export.” A group effort is needed for faith-movies, Erwin said, because he and his brother are limited in what they can do. A single film takes two to three years to complete.

“Andy and I could never make enough content to really move the needle,” he said. “Culturally, it has to be a group initiative.”

“If there’s anything that we should learn as Christians, it is that our movie ticket really is our vote,” Erwin said. “When we show up in mass numbers, culture takes notice. It’s sort of like Joshua in the battle of Jericho. He marched around the city seven times, but in the last step everyone had to yell at exactly the same time — and that’s when the walls fell down. Our industry is like that. When we join our voices together at the same moment, that creates cultural power.”

What are your thoughts on the new venture?

Do you agree with Jon Erwin that successful Christian movies can lead to more cultural power for Christianity?

What these self-proclaimed “Christian” pastors plan to do will make you see red

59

Leftists are trying to turn the church.

They won’t stop trying to deceive Christians on abortion.

And what these self-proclaimed “Christian” pastors plan to do next will make you see red.

Ohio “pastors” will gather next month to “bless” a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Ohio.

Their prayer will “ask God’s blessing upon Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio’s East Columbus Surgical facility, the abortion providers and staff, and all those who pass through the center.”

There will also be a message from Reverend Susan K. Smith of Crazy Faith Ministries.

The event, sponsored by the pro-abortion group The Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, claimed that pro-life advocates “do not have a monopoly on faith or God.”

Christian Headlines reports:

The “blessing” will feature prayers, “testimonies about receiving and providing abortion care,” and a message from Rev. Susan K. Smith of Crazy Faith Ministries.

The Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice claims to work for a “just society,” which in their view is defined as “one where people can live according to their beliefs without coercion. The Coalition says that it seeks “to raise the voices of the faith community to ensure that all people can access the reproductive healthcare they need. Regardless of income, race, or background. Free from judgment and intimidation.”

The Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights claims that they will be conducting more events at abortion clinics across the state this fall.

This isn’t the first time pro-abortion advocates have used religious figures to espouse their propaganda.

We recently reported on self-proclaimed “Christian” abortionist Dr. Willie Parker expressing he believes he is doing “God’s work” when he aborts unborn boys and girls in a Huffington Post op-ed.

Planned parenthood even has a “Christian” coalition to spread their propaganda into the Christian community.

They want to make inroads with Christians to “normalize’ abortion in the Christian community.

They want to remove knowledge of the sixth commandment: “you shall not murder.”

Abortion is nothing short of murder.

60 million unborn babies have been aborted since Roe v. Wade.

But liberals still continue to advocate for public funding for these modern death camps.

Should Christians bless abortion facilities?

A Christian group was just banned from this college campus for an insane reason

56

Academia has become a cesspool for leftist thinking.

They make it clear that anyone who thinks for themselves are not welcome.

But the reason this Christian group was banned from a college campus will make your jaw drop.

Students from the University of Oxford recently voted to ban Christian Concern, a Christian organization, from hosting a youth summer camp on the campus.

The students voted 81-8 in favor of banning the Christian group because it would “threaten their mental and physical safety.”

The Telegraph writes:

The JCR at Lady Margaret Hall voted overwhelmingly in favour of banning Christian Concern from hosting a residential summer camp on the premises because their values do not align with those of the college.

The group wanted to host its residential camp for young people, which aims to “train and equip the invited students on what it means to proclaim Christ in public life,” but JCR members voted to reject the residency by a margin of 81 votes to eight, with two abstentions.

According to the student newspaper OxStu, “members of the JCR who spoke in the debate recognised Christian Concern as a “real threat to the physical and mental safety of students”. One student made the point that “we’re inviting them into our home and we can’t invite people who stand against our values”.

The move to ban the Christian group comes as no surprise to anyone familiar with Academia.

While these universities claim to be in support of free thought and free speech, they are becoming increasingly hostile to anyone who doesn’t bow down to their so-called “progressive” orthodoxy.

It used to be that universities were considered “safe spaces” that encouraged vigorous debate and the free exchange of ideas without fear of repercussion.

Now, instead of teaching students that they can disagree with someone and still engage in meaningful dialogue, our universities are teaching them that “safe spaces” and outright censorship are the answer.

After Donald Trump was elected, many colleges and universities even cancelled exams so students could “recover.”

The University of Utah even installed a “Cry Closet” – complete with stuffed animals and blankie – for students.

This just goes to show how unhinged Academia has become.

It is no longer the height of scientific progress and free thought.

Instead it has been reduced to so-called “progressive” leftists crying about those “evil” Christians and conservatives.

Do you think Christian Concern should be allowed on the campus?

You’ll never guess why this major city is going to war with Chick-fil-A

54

It’s no secret liberals despise Chick-fil-A.

They want to ensure the fast food company is punished for upholding Christian values.

And you’ll never guess how liberals in this major city are trying to take the nationally loved fast food chain down.

The 2019 Pittsburgh Kids Marathon recently garnered the sponsorship of Chick-fil-A.

But left-wing members of the Pittsburgh city council wouldn’t have it.

All nine of the city’s council members signed a letter insisting marathon organizers drop the sponsorship and ensuing funding.

Other liberals circulated an online petition demanding the same thing with 1,100 signatures.

They think allowing a conservative Christian company to sponsor a children’s event is “problematic” because the founder supports the biblical view of marriage.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports:

“They have several beliefs, which they’ve expressed officially, largely through religious basis, that are quite discriminatory and are quite inconsistent with the district’s policies regarding discrimination on the basis of gender, race, etc.,” said Ira Weiss, the school solicitor.

School board members Lynda Wrenn, Moira Kaleida and Terry Kennedy brought the matter to him and administrators after hearing from concerned constituents, Mr. Weiss said.

The board is set to vote next week on the resolution, which would withhold district support from the children’s event as long as Chick-fil-A is a sponsor. The move follows an online petition this month urging North Side-based P3R to sever the financial relationship.

More than 1,100 signatures appear on the petition. Posted on The Action Network website, it accuses Chick-fil-A of being “openly homophobic and transphobic.” The restaurant’s headquarters did not immediately comment but has said it doesn’t have a political or social agenda, focusing instead on service and hospitality “for all.”

The beloved fast food restaurant chain is a favorite target of leftists.

When Chick-fil-A opened up in New York City, the fake news media claimed it was a sign of the city becoming racist and anti-gay.

New York City city council member Christine Quinn even tried to remove the chain.

But the Chick-fil-A location broke sales record after sales record, selling 3,000 sandwiches a day equaling a sandwich ordered every six seconds.

Do you think Chick-fil-A should be allowed to sponsor the Pittsburgh Children’s Marathon?

This Democrat Senate Candidate made a dispicable attack on stay-at-home moms

24

Radical leftists attack conservatives every chance they get.

And they ridicule conservative thought and belief to no end.

But what this sitting U.S. Representative and Democrat Senate candidate said about stay-at-home moms crossed the line.

Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is a representative for Arizona.

She is also running for Senate in Arizona – one of the closest races in the country.

But her past statements attacking stay-at-home moms are coming back to haunt her.

She said in an interview that stay-at-home moms are “leaching off their husbands.”

The Federalist writes:

Democratic Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema, of Arizona, once described stay-at-home moms as leeches in a 2006 interview.

“These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life,” she told Scottsdale nightlife magazine 944. “That’s bull****. I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?”

Sinema, who has come under fire recently for making derogatory comments about Arizona in newly resurfaced videos, also once described conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

In one video, Sinema is seen grimacing and shaking her head after saying that she ran for a position in the Arizona state legislature.

In an interview with KTAR on Wednesday, Sinema was asked if she considered herself a “proud Democrat,” a descriptor she balked at, insisting that she’s a “proud Arizonan,” and that she doesn’t think either political party is doing a good job.

Clearly the Representative doesn’t have respect for conservative women or conservative families.

She can’t fathom a world in which a woman would want to stay at home to raise a family.

Sinema’s sentiments are not unique, however.

Conservative ideas, and more importantly conservative families, are under attack from the left today.

Hillary Clinton made her “deplorable” comments about Trump supporters that all but secured a win for Donald Trump.

Joe Biden recently called conservatives “dregs of society” at a gala for an LGBT rights organization.

And the statements these radical leftists share are indicative of their disdain of conservatives.

It manifests itself in calls for violence that Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder signal in their speeches and interviews.

They want to hide anything remotely traditional from our youth, and young adults, so as to institutionalize them in their so-called “progressive” fantasies.

Do you think Kyrsten Sinema’s derogatory comments about stay-at-home mothers will cost her the Senate race?

What one school did during career day will make your stomach churn

46

Liberals will stop at nothing to brainwash the youngest generation.

They do so easily through their positions in government schools.

And this school’s inflammatory career day choice will make your stomach churn.

Rocky Top Middle School just invited a Drag Queen to speak at career day.

Parents weren’t even notified of the speaker even though Adams 12 Five Star Schools, the local government school disctict, said they should have been.

Zach Sullivan, the drag queen who goes by the name Jessica L’Whor, said he knew the affair would be “controversial.”

And the school district spokesperson, Joe Ferdani, defended the school’s despicable action.

CBS 4 Denver reports:

Students at Rocky Top range from 6th to 8th grade. The drag queen, identified as a woman who goes by “Jessica L’Whor,” is a relative of one student. The district confirmed she was invited to attend career day.

“I knew it was going to be controversial because that was nothing that would be allowed when I was in middle school,” L’Whor said. “At the same time, it opened up a door for conversation.”

District spokesperson Joe Ferdani said staff believed the visit by L’Whor would demonstrate their inclusiveness of all, no matter how they prefer to dress.

“The school’s focus is to have an event that is representative of the diverese backgrounds and careers in the community,” Ferdani said.

Parents were rightly outraged.

One parent called the action “inappropriate on so many levels.”

The Principal apologized to the parents and promised to identify all future guests for parental review.

Do you think it’s ok for government schools to expose kids to drag queen life without parental consent?

These Democrat candidates just launched a vicious assault on religious liberty

55

“Freedom of religion” is expressly protected under this First Amendment.

But the Democrat Party has grown increasingly hostile to expressions of faith.

And these Democrat candidates just launched a vicious assault on religious liberty.

Faith-based adoption agencies are protected in many states from having to place a child in a home with homosexual parents.

Based on their religious views, many of these agencies believe that all children deserve both a mother and a father.

But Democrat candidates across the country are launching a vicious assault on these agencies in an effort to shut them down.

Democrat Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke (TX) is trying to unseat Ted Cruz.

But at a recent rally he attacked a Texas law that allows faith-based adoption agencies to decline to place children with gay parents.

O’Rourke said, “in this state, with 30,000 kids in the foster care system… they say that under the guise of religious liberty that you can be too gay to adopt one of those children who needs a loving home.”

But as David Closson, a research fellow at the Family Research Council showed in an op-ed in the National Review, O’Rourke is either lying or misunderstands the law.

The campaign explained that O’Rourke’s claim was based on a 2017 state law under which faith-based adoption agencies may decline to place children with same-sex couples because of sincerely held religious beliefs about marriage and human sexuality. Significantly, the Texas law does not prevent anyone from adopting, and even mandates that if an agency cannot work with a same-sex couple, it must direct the couple to another agency that will work with them. Even Texas Equality, the state’s largest gay-rights advocacy group, admitted that gay and lesbian couples are not barred from adopting children in Texas.

Thus, O’Rourke’s assertion that one can be “too gay to adopt” in Texas is patently false. Charitably, his comment reveals a misunderstanding of Texas law. More likely, it exposes a prejudiced view of the religious beliefs of millions of Americans who believe children deserve a mother and a father.

But O’Rourke’s not the only one.

Michigan’s Democrat attorney general candidate said, if elected, she will disregard a 2015 law that protects religious liberty of these agencies because she “could not justify using the state’s money defending a law whose only purpose is discriminatory animus.”

In South Carolina, Democrat governor candidate James Smith called the Republican Governor’s decision to issue an executive order protecting these agencies “wrong on every level.”

Closson adds that the assault on these agencies has not gone unnoticed.

In May, 80 federal lawmakers (60 Congressmen and 12 Senators) sent a letter to President Trump, warning him that “faith-based child welfare organizations are being targeted, bullied, and silenced across the country.”

Several states have acted to protect faith-based adoption agencies as well. This summer Kansas and Oklahoma joined Alabama, Michigan, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas, and Virginia by passing laws that prohibit state and local governments from discriminating against faith-based adoption providers. Five of these nine states have passed their laws since 2017.

Underscoring the need for such protections is the case of Catholic Charities of Buffalo in New York, which announced they were terminating their adoption and foster care services after 95 years.

Why?

Because New York was attempting to compel them to place children with same-sex couples.

What are your thoughts about the Democrats’ continued assault on religious liberty in America?

Facebook just got caught red handed doing this to handicap pro-life movie about Gosnell

19

It’s no secret that Silicon Valley doesn’t like conservatives.

They’ve “shadow-banned” conservative thought, claiming it violates their terms of service.

But now Facebook just got caught doing this one thing to the pro-life movie about Kermit Gosnell.

The filmmakers of the movie “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” say that Facebook has prevented them from promoting their movie.

Phelim McAleer, a producer on the film, said that supporters have tried to pay to “boost” the ads on Facebook but have been rejected.

Christian Headlines writes:

The filmmakers behind a movie about abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell say Facebook blocked ads promoting the film.

“The Silicon establishment do not want this story told,” Phelim McAleer, a producer of Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, told The Federalist.

Supporters of the movie, McAleer said, tried paying to “boost” several posts about the movie but were rejected. They even tried boosting a post from a mainstream outlet.

“They [Facebook] simply state it’s not been approved and to check their standards, but it does not give you a specific reason why this post could not be promoted at all to a wider audience,” McAleer said. “It’s clear it is the pro-life audience that they don’t want to encourage or provide content to. They really hate anyone who doesn’t subscribe to the liberal world view.”

Without Facebook’s help, many people who might want to see the movie don’t even know about it.

“Facebook is essentially silencing these children and women whom Gosnell murdered,” McAleer told The Federalist. “This is content journalists should be covering but Facebook is putting their thumb on the scale because they do not like the content. … As independent filmmakers, we have a limited budget and Facebook was a mainstay of our outreach efforts.”

At best this is a poor decision by one Facebook representative to block the ads.

At worst, this is a blatant example of Silicon Valley blocking any and all conservative content.

When the Gosnell story originally broke in 2010, the liberal media ignored it until pro-lifers forced them to acknowledge the horrors Gosnell committed.

More recently Twitter banned Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) from promoting a pro-life ad for her U.S. Senate campaign because it had the words “baby body-parts” referring to Planned Parenthoods sale of babies’ body parts to buyers.

And as we reported, NPR turned down a six figure paycheck so that the movie wouldn’t be advertised.

Their bias runs deeper than that, however.

The Federal Election Commission shows that more than $2.4 million dollars from Google, Facebook, and Twitter employees has been donated to candidates during the mid-terms.

Of that $2.4 million, the FEC shows that only $176,000 went to Republicans.

That means Silicon Valley tech employees – the ones holding the keys to the algorithims – donate nearly $13 to Democrats for every $1 donated to Republicans.

This is all evidence that Silicon Valley wants to suppress conservative thought from public consumption.

Do you think Facebook should stop censoring ads for the Gosnell movie?

Trump stated one simple truth that made LGBT activists livid

84

LGBT activists are losing all sense of reality.

They claim there are an infinite number of genders.

And their response to Donald Trump’s latest action shows just how unbalanced they truly are.

Recently, the Trump administration ordered the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to uphold basic tenets of biology by defining gender based on biological sex.

It is a fundamental truth that there are only two genders: male and female.

But LGBT radicals believe gender is a spectrum and people who believe there are only two genders are “backwards.”

Time Magazine reports:

According to a memo obtained by the New York Times, the Department of Health and Human Services is leading an effort to establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX, the federal law that prohibits gender-based discrimination. The department reportedly favors a uniform definition of sex as a fixed matter, determined as either male or female by genitalia at birth.

“The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence,” the memo says, according to the Times.

The White House’s new definition, if implemented, would mark a significant rollback of Obama-era policies that largely allowed people to choose how they identify rather than be determined by the sex assigned at birth…

Many pro-LGBT organizations have threatened to sue the Trump administration should the memo be implemented.

The Transgender Law Center tweeted that Trump is seeking to “erase” transgenders from existence.

And the National Center for Transgender Equality tweeted that trans people are “under direct attack.”

But those are scare tactics designed to mobilize their radical base.

The Trump administration’s memo was written to make it easier for employees working in the HHS to treat people.

Leftists claim to believe in science.

But they reject basic biology by asserting biological sex doesn’t exist.
