Justices Roberts, Kavanaugh Side with Abortion Giant

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh took the side of Planned Parenthood in a landmark case Monday blocking efforts on the part of individual states to remove taxpayer funding of the largest abortion provider in America. The question was whether or not the states could prevent Planned Parenthood from receiving Medicaid funds in their states.

Only Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch voted to hear the appeal from a lower court, while Kavanaugh and Roberts took the majority position with the liberals on the court.

The states of Kansas and Mississippi were attempting to disqualify Planned Parenthood as a Medicaid provider.

Other examples of Supreme Court justices, appointed by Republican presidents, who have bent pro-abortion in their decisions in the past, include Justice David Souter, Justice Anthony Kennedy, and Justice Sandra Day O’Conner.

Proverbs 17:15 says, “He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the LORD.”

New York to Christian Adoption Agency: Give Children to Sodomites!

The State of New York is forcing a Christian adoption agency to accommodate men living with men and women living with women in unnatural affections with one another or they will have to go out of business.

The Syracuse-based agency, New Hope Family Services, has filed a lawsuit against the state, noting that their commission is rooted in James 1:27, and it has been an explicitly Christian ministry since its founding in 1958.

ACLJ to UN: Wake Up to Nigerian Christian Genocide

The American Center for Law and Justice has filed a letter with the United Nations specialist on genocide, pointing out the ongoing Christian genocide in Nigeria, Africa.

The letter estimates that since 2011, 37,500+ people have been killed, 2.5 million people have been displaced, and 1,000 children have been kidnapped in North and Central Nigeria by Boko Haram and other Muslim terrorist groups.

The letter is asking the United Nations to “stop the spread of violence and prevent genocide” in Nigeria.

Vietnamese Pastor Gets 12-Year Prison Sentence

A Vietnamese pastor has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for charges of “attempting to overthrow the  government.”

Pastor Nguyen Trung Ton’s wife told International Christian Concern that he refuses to plead guilty to these trumped up charges, and he has spoken out in favor of “democracy so that people can enjoy all the freedoms specified by the International Convention on Human Rights.”

Christians, Hebrews 13 reminds us, are to “Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.”

China Upset over Arrest of Big Tech Executive

China’s foreign ministry is calling the arrest “lawless, reasonless and ruthless.”

Netflix Normalizes Child Sex Abuse in New Series

Netflix has already received much criticism over its promotion of teenage witchcraft and sexual orgies in its new season release of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

But now, Netflix premiered another series, Baby, that is normalizing “child sexual abuse and sex trafficking of minors”, according to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation. Executive Director Dawn Hawkins accuses Netflix of what she calls “prioritizing profits over victims of abuse.”

Romans 1:32 speaks of these people who – “although they know God’s righteous decree and that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

U.S. Corporate Debt Has Doubled Since 2007

CNBC points out that American corporate debt has almost doubled since the Great Recession of 2007, increasing by 86%. Corporate debt stands at almost 75% of the Gross National Income, up from 65% before the last recession.

Corporate cash to debt ratios are the lowest ever, a bad sign for corporate liquidity. Meanwhile, the federal debt to Gross Domestic Product ratio has risen from 62% to 104% just since the last recession. That’s the largest increase in U.S. debt since World War II.

CNN’s Spiritual Blinders to California Fires

In an article released yesterday, CNN attributed the California fires to what they called “the sin of building in wilderness with no regard for nature’s cycles.”

In the article, CNN made no reference to sinning against God, or even the possibility of God’s existence. Last month, California experienced the most deadly fire in the state’s history — and the nation’s most deadly wildfire in 100 years.
