Christian Judge Virtually Bankrupted Defending Opposition to Gay “Marriage”

Oregon Judge Vance Day says he lost everything when he refused to conduct weddings for men and women living in unnatural affections.

Last March he received a three-year suspension from office by the Judicial Fitness Commission. Spurious charges against Judge Day were dismissed by a Portland judge last week, but not before he was virtually bankrupted in the legal fight. He was forced to sell his home and other assets to pay for the $1.2 million legal bill, according to OregonLive.com.

Judge Day says his troubles began when he recused himself from officiating at a homosexual faux wedding.

Wales Is 61st Country to Consider Anti-Spanking Law

The country of Wales is working on an anti-spanking ban. The government is working on an “informational campaign” for now.

Recent statistics indicate that only 11% of Welsh parents spank their children, down from 22% just two years earlier.

According to the Christian Institute, “Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones wants to make it a criminal offence for parents to use ‘reasonable chastisement’ – which could even include picking up a misbehaving child.”

A total of 60 countries have banned spanking in recent years, including New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, Spain, Finland, Germany, Greece, and most of South America, reports CNN.

However, God’s Word speaks more authoritatively, when it says, “Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.” (Proverbs 13:24)

Liberal Politico.com Wondering if Democrats Will Lose Mid-Terms

Are hopes for the Blue Wave fading for the Democrats?

The liberal website Politico.com is admitting that the mid-term elections will be a matter of “limiting losses” for the Democratic Party.

The seat of Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota appears to be a lost cause. And Republican Senator Ted Cruz still leads in Texas in the polls by six points.

Indeed, as Proverbs 21:1 teaches, “the heart of the King, [and the voters] are in the hands of the Lord, and He turns it whithersoever He wills.”

The Islamization of Europe Continues as People Reject Christ

The National Review reports on the continued Islamization of Europe, after the rejection of the Christian faith on the continent.
