The Boy Scouts’ next move will leave you shaking your head in disbelief

76

The Boy Scouts are in hot water.

They faced blowback when they began accepting girls into their flagship program to teach boys the skills required for manhood.

But what the Boy Scouts of America are planning to do next will make you shake your head in disbelief.

The Boy Scouts of America is speculating filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy over legal fees from alleged sexual assault allegations and court cases.

The organization, founded to teach boys to be model citizens and prepared for anything life throws at them, met with legal experts to determine if Chapter 11 bankruptcy is the best option forward for the organization.

USA Today reports:

Surbaugh said the group is focused on keeping youth safe and preparing them for their futures through character development and values-based leadership training.

“To do so in perpetuity, we are working with experts to explore all options,” he said. “We have a social and moral responsibility to fairly compensate victims who suffered abuse during their time in scouting.”

Sexual misconduct within the organization began to draw national attention in 2012, when a judge ordered the release of over 20,000 confidential documents revealing that over 1,000 leaders and volunteers had been banned between 1965 and 1985 after being accused of sexual or inappropriate conduct with boys.

Surbaugh, in his statement, apologized for anyone harmed during their time in scouting. One incident of child abuse is too many, he said, adding that the Boy Scouts have taken “proactive steps” to help victims heal and prevent future abuse.

He said the group has never knowingly allowed a sexual predator to work with youth.

The damage is done, and the organization has fallen from its original intentions.

Instead of focusing on turning boys into men, the organization bent the knee to social justice propaganda, accepting girls into their flagship program.

In the process, they neglected to ensure Scoutmasters and those in leadership positions are upstanding citizens who will teach boys to “do a good turn daily” and “do [their] duty to God and [their] country.”

Franklin Graham just shut down Apple’s gay CEO’s censorship plan with one Bible verse

112

Apple is open about their so-called “progressive” policies and ideas.

And they also hate conservatives and will do anything to silence them.

But what Franklin Graham just said in response to Apple’s CEO will floor you.

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook recently received the “Courage Against Hate” award from the Anti-Defamation League.

And in his speech he defended Apple’s decision to ban speech on their platforms that “violates the values of the company.”

But Franklin Graham responded with a bombshell, asking Tim Cook “Who defines Morality?”

Then he followed it up with a Bible verse from the book of Judges that reads “Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” (Judges 21:25)

CBN News writes:

CNSNews.com reports in his remarks, Cook, who’s openly gay and supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, defended his company’s banning of certain speech or news media on Apple’s platforms when they “violate the values of the company.” He said that not banning what is “wrong” is irresponsible and “a sin.”

Responding directly to Cook in a Facebook post, Franklin Graham asked the question, “Who defines Morality?” And Graham reminded his followers that Cook’s comments “should concern all of us.”

“The only thing is, as sinful human beings, we don’t get to define morality or sin according to our own desires, preferences, or agendas,” Graham pointed out. “Tim Cook can’t; I can’t; and you can’t.

“Sin and morality has been defined by the God of the universe. God and God alone. God’s Word, the Bible, is the standard by which questions of good and evil, and right and wrong, are determined,” Graham continued.

“We run into all kinds of problems if Apple or Google or anyone else tries to censor according to their own personal code of right and wrong. That was the problem among God’s people a thousand years before Christ appeared, as the Old Testament Book of Judges drew to a close: “Everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25),” he concluded.

Graham hit the nail right on the head.

Apple’s definition of what is “moral” or “right” could differ from someone else’s.

And to give Apple the power over its users to censor them when they please, is frightening.

Everyone who uses an iPhone or Mac should be concerned.

This is the issue with all of the Silicon Valley giants, however.

Google has been caught red-handed suppressing positive content for conservatives in favor of blatantly leftist sites like The Huffington Post or CNN.

And Youtube (owned by Google) will demonetize and outright ban conservatives simply for sharing their opinion, while pushing “progressive” voices like Samantha Bee to the top of their featured list.

Ultimately, Graham cut right to the chase of the problem.

No one can define Morality except God Himself.

FLASH POLL: Tim Tebow Approval

38

QUICK POLL

Our national media can’t stop demanding National Anthem protesting quarterback Colin Kaepernick be reinstated in the NFL.

But they haven’t uttered a word about outspoken Christian Tim Tebow’s absence.

As a college quarterback at the University of Florida, pro-football player, TV commentator, and minor league baseball player, Tim Tebow has never shied away from his Christian faith — something almost unheard of among athletes and celebrities.

This liberal college department just launched a crazy attack on our democracy

59

Academia is just a surrogate for Radical Leftists.

And like the Radical Left, they often promote anti-American policies and ideas.

But they crossed the line with this attack on American society.

The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign’s (UIUC) Gender & Women’s Studies department just demanded the abolition of the police, ICE, and the judicial system in a new nine-point platform.

They also called for the eradication of the supposed “cisgender heterosexual patriarchy” and alleged “global white supremacy.”

Campus Reform reports:

Madeleine Hubbard, president of Turning Point USA at UIUC, called this demand “very concerning.”

“Without these groups, you would not have Rule of Law. A society cannot function without the Rule of Law. Complete chaos and anarchy would break out,” Hubbard told Campus Reform. “It is disturbing that a university department would call for the end of the judicial system. While there might be flaws in the judicial system, it is still the very fabric that holds society together.”

The UI department subsequently deleted the Facebook post and did not return requests for comment. But other controversial posts still remain on the department’s Facebook page. UIUC’s Gender & Women Studies department also encouraged students to leave a “feminist curse” and to “take or leave a feminist offering” via Facebook.

“We invite you to leave a feminist curse on the wall or in the skull and pick up a feminist benediction (a button, a flyer, whatever offerings are her,” a sign posted in late September reads. “At the end of the month, we will burn all our curses together.”

This latest stunt is crossing the line.

As Madeleine Hubbard from Turning Point USA pointed out, they are launching an attack on the very fabric of our democracy.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new for Academia.

As we reported, San Diego State University offered a class focusing on the impeachment of Trump.

Now, the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign showed the true colors of Academia.

They fundamentally hate America and our freedoms because of their so-called “progressive” fantasies.

What this church is encouraging transgenders to do will make you furious

45

The Church of England has adopted politically “progressive” policies over the past few years.

They think they are adapting to stay “relevant” with society as a result.

But what the Church of England is encouraging transgenders to do will make you furious.

The Church of England has moved full force to adopt pro-transgenderism policies as of late.

But recently they told their transgender members they should perform an “Affirmation of Baptism” service to signify their new gender identity.

The Church of England says that the move is to help “welcome and encourage the affirmation of trans people.”

BBC writes:

The Church of England has issued new advice about how to help transgender people mark their transition.

The guidance recommends the Affirmation of Baptism service is adapted to allow transgender Christians to celebrate their new sexual identity.

The service would see them addressed by their chosen name, not birth name.

It follows pressure at the general synod last year to go further in welcoming the transgender community.

The Affirmation of Baptism service is not a second baptism and is traditionally intended for people who wish to make a renewed declaration of their faith.

The guidance emphasises that the Church “welcomes and encourages the unconditional affirmation of trans people, equally with all people, within the body of Christ, and rejoices in the diversity of that body into which all Christians have been baptized by one Spirit”.

As BBC notes, the move comes after just last year the Church had voted to be more “welcoming” and “affirming” of transgenders.

They even said they would be “looking into having transgender services.”

The Church of England is crossing a line.

They have rejected the truth of the Bible that teaches us that God made man and woman the way they are.

And there is no changing that, no matter how someone “feels.”

To truly love others, you have to be willing to tell them the truth.

That is the way Christ loved the woman at the well, and how the Bible teaches Christians to love.

But unfortunately, too many churches think keeping the peace is the way to love others.

Do you agree with the Church’s new “transgender Affirmation of Baptism” policy? Let us know in the comments section.

Something tragic happened to this 9-year-old girl because of who she was friends with

34

Leftists pretend that racism can only come from white people.

They say that since white people have “power,” only they can be racist.

But you’ll never guess what happened to this 9-year-old girl because of who she was friends with.

In Linden, Alabama, a 9 year-old African American girl was found dead by her grandmother after she committed suicide.

Her grandmother says that her granddaughter was experiencing bullying from other African American kids because she was friends with white kids.

The Daily Wire writes:

A nine-year-old black girl from Alabama, who was allegedly bullied by her fourth-grade classmates for being friends with a white family, committed suicide.

On December 9, McKenzie Adams was found by her grandmother after she hanged herself, the Tuscaloosa News reported. McKenzie attended U.S. Jones Elementary School in Demopolis after transferring from her elementary school in Linden where her mother and grandmother said she had been bullied. Her mother, Jasmine Adams, and her grandmother complained to the State Board of Education about the bullying McKenzie was experiencing, which allegedly continued at her new school.

Jasmine Adams told CBS 42, “She told me that this one particular child was writing her nasty notes in class. It was just things you wouldn’t think a 9-year-old should know. And my baby to tell me some of the things they had said to her, I was like, where are they learning this from? … Part of it could have been because she rode to school with a white family. And a lot of it was race; some of the student bullies would say to her, ‘Why you riding with white people? You’re black; you’re ugly. You should just die.’”

McKenzie’s aunt, Eddwina Harris, a television host in Atlanta, told the Tuscaloosa News, “She was being bullied the entire school year, with words such as ‘kill yourself,’ ‘You think you’re white because you ride with that white boy,’ ‘You ugly,’ ‘Black b-tch,’ ‘Just die.’’’

The grandmother Jasmine told CBS that her granddaughter had complained about the bullying to the school administration before.

But there was nothing done in defense of the young girl.

Unfortunately, this type of behavior is left unchecked too often.

The school administrators probably didn’t feel comfortable approaching a situation where young African American kids were actually demonstrating racism and bullying someone just like them.

And this is how the so-called “progressives” want you to feel.

African Americans who leave the Democrat plantation are often called “Uncle Toms” or worse.

First Lady Melania Trump has made her anti-bullying campaign her top priority.

Her goal is to help our children manage the many issues they are facing today, including encouraging positive social, emotional and physical habits – so situations like this never happen again.

A Transgender “safe space” was set up in this U.S. city and you’ll never guess who’s footing the bill

72

So-called “transgender” people are forcing their lifestyle on America.

They’ve even gone as far as to insist on military enrollment, which could’ve led to taxpayer-funded sex changes.

But transgenders in one major city just scored a huge victory and you’ll never guess who was left holding the bag.

The San Francisco, California Board of Supervisors unanimously supported $215,000 in taxpayer funding to establish a “transgender cultural district” in the city.

This amounts to a taxpayer-funded giant “safe space” for transgenders.

Named after the infamous Compton riots, where so-called “transgender” people attacked law enforcement officers over alleged police brutality, the district is called “Compton’s Transgender Cultural District.”

The district has gay bars, transgender dance clubs and “hook-up” spots.

The Daily Beast reports:

The area Mahogany was walking through makes up part of the first legally recognized transgender district in the world, Compton’s Transgender Cultural District.

Mahogany, a performer and contestant on Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, is Compton’s district manager. The district’s purpose is to stop the displacement of trans people from a place they have been welcomed in historically, and to teach people about trans history, she said.

In May of this year, the 11 members of the Board of Supervisors unanimously supported funding the city’s cultural districts, which include the “Calle 24: Latino Cultural District and the LGBTQ Leather Cultural District in SOMA.

Compton’s received $215,000 from the city, said Clair Farley, director of San Francisco’s Office of Transgender Initiatives. Last year the focus was on getting community input and establishing priorities for the district. Going forward, Farley says, the goal is to help trans business and to provide workforce development for trans and LGBTQ people.

San Francisco is so obsessed with pushing “transgender culture” they’ve given up on taking care of their city.

San Francisco has major drug and homeless problems. Human feces has piled up on the streets.

It’s gotten so bad, San Francisco Mayor London Breed was asked about it in her very first sit-down interview.

She admitted, “I will say there is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here.”

In 2018, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that the city’s 311 service portal received over a thousand complaints of discarded syringes within a 25 day period.

Additionally, over 13,000 dirty needles were found scattered about in just two metro stops.

But instead of taxpayer dollars being put toward a cleaner city, it’s used for social justice propaganda.

Should taxpayers be forced to pay for transgender safe spaces? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

What liberal activists just did to this town’s 70 year Christmas tradition will make you see red

59

Nothing scares liberal activists more than the nativity story.

To them, the story of a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger being visited by wise men is a bloody sore on the history of mankind.

And what liberal activists did to this town’s 70 year Christmas tradition will make you see red.

A public school district in Michigan was issued a warning by civil rights activists to remove their 70-year-old Wise Men display or face a lawsuit.

The beloved display of the three Wise Men sits on top of Newaygo Elementary School.

The Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists (MACRA) put the Newaygo Public School District on notice because they allegedly received a complaint that the display was offensive.

But most citizens of the small Michigan town want the display to stay up as part of a decades-old tradition.

9 and 10 news reports:

A popular, long standing Christmas decoration is in risk of getting taken down after a civil rights group opposes it standing on top of a public elementary school.

“It’s just a symbol of our community it’s always been there and we love it,” says Amy Postma.

For decades the Three Wisemen have watched over Newaygo from high on top of the elementary school. Three wisemen heading towards the star of Bethlehem. A tradition for Newaygo, but possibly an illegal tradition, a failure to separate church and state.

People around town have been talking about the controversy over the weekend and very few want to have the decorations taken down.

“It would be just as ridiculous to say you can’t have Santa Claus in the bank taking pictures with kids,” says Postma, a lifelong Newaygo resident, “It’s a part of the festivities.”

Leftwing secularists have pushed the War on Christmas to new heights this year.

As we recently reported, a town in Ohio was forced to take down their nativity scene after receiving threats from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

And another school in Nebraska banned Christmas colors, Christmas carols and candy canes.

Triggered Black Lives Matter activists just smeared a pro-lifer in the worst way

41

Pro-lifers are always under attack for simply sharing the plain truth about abortion.

And the radical Social Justice Warriors will do anything to silence pro-lifers completely.

But these Black Lives Matter activists just crossed the line with their outrageous smear against a pro-life speaker.

At Wheaton College in Illinois, the college Republicans invited African American pro-life advocate Ryan Bomberger to speak at an even called “Black Lives Matter, In and Outside the Womb.”

Students then complained that he made them feel “unsafe” and “unheard.”

And the school administration also condemned his visit entirely.

CBN writes:

Students at Wheaton College allege that an African American pro-life activist made them feel “unsafe” and “unheard” as he addressed racial justice and abortion during a campus forum.

Ryan Bomberger was invited by Wheaton College Republicans to speak at a campus-event called “Black Lives Matter, In and Outside the Womb.”

During the 50-minute presentation, Bomberger spoke about the impact abortions have on the black community. … Afterwards there was a 30-minute Q&A where students had the opportunity to ask questions. Bomberger also stayed after to answer additional questions.

Six days after the forum, Bomberger was criticized in an open letter by Student Body President Lauren Rowley, Student Body Vice President Tyler Waaler and EVP of Community Diversity Sammie Shields. In the letter to the university, they denounced Bomberger’s visit saying:

“The speaker…made several comments at the event that deeply troubled members of our community. His comments, surrounding the topic of race, made many students, staff, and faculty of color feel unheard, underrepresented, and unsafe on our campus.”

They also said it was necessary to respond to the offensive rhetoric, but they didn’t quote any specific comments they disliked. And Bomberger points out the letter writers did not name the special interest group that invited him nor his racial background.

The unnamed students and the school administration could also be facing a legal battle as Bomberger has accused the students and the school of “defamation.”

Bomberger simply exposed the Left’s hypocrisy in failing to defend the African American community inside the womb just the same as outside.

He also pointed out that Planned Parenthood originated as a plot from Democrats in the early 20th century from racists like Margaret Sanger.

But of course, the Leftists won’t accept the truth.

It’s easier to smear pro-lifers as hateful, bigoted, sexist and racist than to have an honest debate because they know they can’t win.

Colleges and Universities are supposed to be on the frontlines of intellectual, fervent debate.

But those debates can’t happen when snowflake students and school administrators won’t tolerate any opinions outside of their radical leftist worldview.

Do you think Wheaton College should issue an apology to Bomberger? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Brett Kavanaugh made a decision that had Planned Parenthood jumping for joy

78

Many pro-lifers stuck their necks out to defend Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation fight.

And radical pro-abortion activists were literally clawing on the doors of the Supreme Court to stop him from being sworn in.

But Justice Kavanaugh just made a decision that had Planned Parenthood jumping for joy.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the Supreme Court’s liberal justices to decline to hear a case that would allow states to defund Planned Parenthood.

This lawsuit marks the third time the Supreme Court refused to hear such a case.

Politico reports:

Tim Jost, an emeritus professor at Washington and Lee University School of Law, said it’s “noteworthy” that Kavanaugh passed on the cases.

“If Kavanaugh was going to deal a major blow to health care rights during his first session on the court, this would have been the case to do it,” Jost said.

The anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List said it was “disappointed” the Supreme Court declined the case, as it called on the Trump administration to quickly finalize rules blocking federal funds to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers through the Title X family planning program.

“The pro-life citizens of states like Kansas and Louisiana, through their elected representatives, have clearly expressed their will: they do not want Medicaid tax dollars used to prop up abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood,” said SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser in a statement.

Many pro-lifers thought Justice Kavanaugh would be an immediate ally in the fight to end abortion.

But he has so far refused to lift a finger.

Meanwhile, conservative Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch all voted to hear the case.

In order for a case to be heard before the Supreme Court, four justices must agree to hear it.

Justice Kavanaugh’s vote in favor would have been the one that tipped the scales.

This isn’t the first time conservatives were blindsided by Supreme Court Justices appointed by Republican presidents.

Chief Justice John Roberts, a George W. Bush appointee, sided with liberal Supreme Court Justices in 2012 to uphold Obamacare.

And Justice Anthony Kennedy, a Ronald Reagan appointee, sided with liberal Justices to force all states to accept gay marriage as a “right” guaranteed by the Constitution.

Is Justice Kavanaugh’s decision another example of a Republican SCOTUS pick stabbing pro-lifers in the back?
