Judge welcomes Satanic campus club, ejects Christian one
Last week, U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam ruled that San Jose Pioneer High School was in the right for booting the FCA group off campus in 2019 for its stance on Biblical marriage. All three FCA Christian student clubs in the district were subsequently ejected.
The Obama-appointed judge ruled that the district’s requirements for recognition was “content-neutral because it does not preclude religious speech, but rather prohibits acts of discrimination.”
Pro-aborts target pro-life ministries with violence
Pro-life centers are under attack from certain opponents who are committed to killing babies.
Besides the Buffalo, New York Center attack which The Worldview reported on Friday, Wisconsin Family Action building was also recently badly damaged by a Molotov cocktail attack. Last month, the offices for Oregon Right to Life were damaged in a similar attack. And, over the weekend, another pro-life office in Gresham, Oregon was set ablaze by an incendiary device.
Edward Hazen, owner of Nana’s Place, a business across the street from the Gresham, Oregon pro-life office, said this on Fox 12 Oregon.
HAZEN: “I think it’s sad. I think it’s sad. You can go out and picket and, you know, protest in front of a business instead of destroying that business. I think that’s terrible.”
In addition, World Magazine reports that Mountain Area Pregnancy Services in Asheville, North Carolina was vandalized, and threatened with the message: “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you.”
Similar messages were spray painted on the Alpha Crisis Pregnancy Center in Reisterstown, Maryland as well as on four church buildings in Olympia, Washington.
An organization called Jane’s Revenge has taken responsibility for the attack on the Wisconsin facility, but so far the U.S. government has not issued any statement or made any arrests in the case.
The group’s name is a reference to the “Jane Collective,” an underground group in Chicago that helped mothers obtain illegal abortions prior to the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
Proverbs 21:7 warns that “The violence of the wicked will sweep them away, because they refuse to do what is just.”

Yesterday, the U.S. stock market experienced the fifth largest sell-off in history, affecting bonds, stocks, and bitcoin, reports ZeroHedge.com.
Plus, the NASDAQ Index slipped 5%. That’s a 33% drop year to date.
Bitcoin took a beating Monday, dropping some 16% in value in a day, wrapping up a 5-day slippage of 26%. Cryptocurrency has lost two-thirds of its value since November.
A recent Financial Times survey found that 70% of economists expect a recession in 2023, and about one-third predict recession will be here this year.
As The Worldview reported yesterday, average gas prices in the United States hit $5.00 over the weekend. Overall, the year-to-year inflation rate in May was 8.6%.
America’s dangerous drought conditions
The U.S. Drought Monitor has declared that all of Arizona, all of California, all of Nevada, all of New Mexico, all of Utah, 90% of Colorado, two-thirds of Montana, and two-thirds of Oregon are in drought conditions.
Spring rains in the Pacific Northwest yielded some relief to Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. And California has been in serious drought conditions in eight out of the last 10 years.
How a missing 4-year-old toddler survived overnight
A four-year-old Montana toddler turned up missing in the Bull Lake area over the weekend.
But, thanks be to God, he was found “hungry, thirsty, and cold” after two days. ABC News reports that a couple heard whimpers outside of their cabin in a nearby shed several miles from the boy’s home.
Police think he slept in a lawnmower bag to stay warm overnight.
Jack Graham endorses Tom Ascol for SBC President
In a video released over the weekend, Graham said this.
GRAHAM: “I am very excited about the candidacy of Tom Ascol. Now, Tom and I are not exactly alike on the issues of Calvinism and the sovereignty of God. In fact, we’ve had our rows in the past over that.
“But I’ve come to respect this man as a man of God and a man of grace. And I know he’s a man of the Word. I believe he has leadership skills that can take us forward into the future for Southern Baptists in a time like this. Someone who will stand up before the world and clearly define and declare the truth of the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
Disney’s evil push of homosexuality in kids’ movies
Hollywood media reported that Pixar chose to include the homosexual scene in the animated children’s film, in “an internal backlash to Disney’s handling of [Florida’s Parental Rights in Sexual Education] legislation.”
The influence of Disney on small children is undisputed. Toy Story 4 became the top-grossing G-rated film of all time. Plus, the Toy Story franchise has become the most popular children’s animated film franchise of all time.
Jeremiah 5:26-29 speaks to this. “‘For among My people are found wicked men; They lie in wait as one who sets snares. … As a cage is full of birds, so their houses are full of deceit. Therefore, they have become great and grown rich. … Shall I not punish them for these things?’ says the Lord. ‘Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?’”
10-year-old Canadian Worldview listener speak out
Well, the emails about our little newscast keep coming in to Adam@TheWorldview.com.
Susan Griesmann in West Palm Beach, Florida wrote, “Yours is the only news I listen to. I trust your newscast. I like your scriptural quotes.”
10-year-old Breanne Yaskow in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Canada wrote, “What makes it unique and special is giving the news from a Christian point of view. And I think you are a great guy for this. Thanks for doing The Worldview. It tells me what is going on in the world.”
And Lavonn Adolphson in Wichita, Kansas said, “For a couple of years I pretty much ignored the news except for what my husband would tell me. Lately, I realized I need to be informed so I know how to pray, understand the world I’m living in, and talk about those events with our family! I love The Worldview because I feel it gives me the most important news quickly. Best of all, especially with news that’s hard to hear, the Bible verses you cite always reassure me that God sees all and is in complete control. Praise to Him. And thank you.”
Don’t forget, if you send an email, please include your city and state.
