An alleged “evangelical” endorses homosexuality
Dr. Kevin Mannoia, the Azusa Pacific University Chaplain and the former head of the National Association of Evangelicals, has endorsed “the intent, the efforts, and the resolutions” behind a pro-homosexual resolution that is before the California Assembly right now, reports CaliforniaFamily.org.
Resolution ACR- 99, introduced by self-professed homosexual California Assemblyman Evan Low, directs pastors to acknowledge that unnatural sexual perversions and identities are “natural” and “not a disease, disorder, deficiency or shortcoming” in direct contradiction to Scripture in Romans chapter one.
Proverbs 25:26 says, “A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring.”
UK judge tries to force special needs pregnant woman to abort
The Catholic News Agency reports that a UK judge was trying to force a Nigerian-British pregnant woman in her 20’s to abort her child, deeming the young woman to be only of a “grade-school mental capacity.”
This ruling came despite the young woman’s objections and the grandmother’s insistence that she would adopt the grandchild. The judge, Nathalie Lieven, has distinguished herself previously as an activist lawyer advocating for abortion rights.
Two Catholic bishops in the U.K. had also spoken out against the decision.
The online petition, started by Right to Life UK June 22, has received over 75,000 signatures since it was posted.
Thankfully, the English Court of Appeal did the right thing yesterday, overturned the previous ruling of the Court of Protection, reports the Catholic Herald.
The appeals court, which consists of Lord Justice McCombe, Lady Justice King and Lord Justice Peter Jackson, said they would issue a full explanation of their decision at a later date, but that the circumstances of the case were “unique.”
Pro-homosexual GoFundMe.com pulls rug out from Christian rugby player
The pro-homosexual GoFundMe.com site has shutdown Israel Folau’s account, the Christian former Australian rugby player who dared to speak the truth about the sin of homosexual behavior on his Instagram page, reports the BBC.
A spokeswoman for GoFundMe.com told the BBC that the company is “absolutely committed to the fight for LGBTIQ+people” and they do not “tolerate exclusion.” So, over the weekend, after he had raised $750,000 in funds for his legal battle, GoFundMe.com is sending all those funds raised for Folau back to the donors.
Folau lost a $4,000,000 contract for an Instagram post, stating that hell awaits drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, and liars with the encouragement that only Jesus saves. This post curried persecution and pushback from Rugby Australia, all the major media, an Anglican Bishop, and Hillsong Pastor Brian Houston.
Portugal requires college degree of homeschool parents
And the compulsory attendance age begins at three years of age.
Measles continues to rise with 1,000 infections, worst in 27 years
In God’s providence, that American measles outbreak has now spread to over 1,000 persons making it the worst in 27 years.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced 33 more cases, mostly in New York State — a 3% bump from the previous week. California, Washington State, and Pennsylvania are also problem states for measles at the present.
Marriage & divorce rate of young is down, Living in Sin is up
The divorce rate has decreased in America by 29% over the last 40 years, according to the National Center for Family and Marriage Research.
However, most of that decrease occurred with very young marriages, on the part of 15 to 24-year-olds. Among the 45-65 year old crowd, the divorce rate increased by 74% over the same time frame.
The news concerning the marital state of 18 to 24-year-olds is not that great, overall. The 18 to 24-year-olds are cohabiting with a partner at a rate almost 100 times what it was in 1970, and their marriage rate has fallen by 50%.
My Little Pony cartoon pushes gay agenda on little children
The Discovery Family Channel’s children’s show geared for toddlers, My Little Pony, celebrated Sexual Perversion Month, by introducing a same-sex couple of horses, reports The Christian Post.

CBS celebrates fornication for entertainment in new reality show
CBS will introduce “On Love Island” in July — a reality program featuring serial fornication — more reasons for Christians to avoid television, and the accompanying unfruitful works of darkness.
One British columnist urged a Christian boycott of the British version last year since “these people are engaging in sexual immorality for your entertainment.” You can also give CBS a piece of your mind through a special link.
Ephesians 5:11 says, “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them”
Attorneys for sexually abused boys in Boy Scouts set up website
A team of attorneys has opened up a website and advertising campaign for Boy Scouts who have been abused at scouting.com. The site references “thousands of sexual abuse reports” over a hundred years, and “most of the time there was no record of Scouting officials reporting the allegations to police.”
The Boy Scouts legitimized sexual perversion in the form of homosexuality for their troops on January 1st, 2014.
Bit coin tops $11,000
Bit coin topped $11,000 over the weekend, up from $4,000 in March.
However, the crypto-currency is still $9,000 shy of where it topped out a year ago. The U.S. dollar dropped about 1.5% over the last few days, the most precipitous dip in four months. This happened amidst worries concerning China-US trade talks, and Fed rate adjustments.
But, as Matthew 10:29 states, our God is still in control of every sparrow that falls, as well as the value of the dollar when it drops.
Austin, Texas couple fostered 173 babies
Burrell Lankford and his wife Leanna would sometimes care for three at a time, taking the babies along on family reunions, family vacations, Little League games, and dance recitals.
The hardest part of it was preparing for the baby to leave.
1 lone Worldview listener gave $50; $27,535 is new grand total
As you know, our goal by this Friday, June 28th is to raise $50,000 to get out of the red in terms of the expenses of producing The Worldview in 5 Minutes.
As of yesterday morning, the remnant of listeners had given or pledged $27,485. On Friday and Saturday alone, 22 Worldview listeners had given or pledged $5,285 – our record high this month.
However, I’ve got some unfortunate news! Only one person, just one, decided to make a donation between Sunday and Monday. In two days, just one person, James in Albuquerque, New Mexico gave a $50 gift. Thank you James for your generosity.
Now, if you have been waiting on the sidelines because you want to be the critical donation to get us across the finish line, I need you right now. We’re not going to make it unless every person who hears that still, small voice of God prompting you to sustain this critically important Christian newscast follows through today in obedience.
Riverside, California listener values this Christian newscast
Jeremy Greening in Riverside, California, wrote me at Adam@TheWorldview.com. He said, “Our family has greatly benefited from the radio show for the past several years. Frankly, I’m embarrassed I haven’t contributed sooner. I love the succinct, timely, news broadcasts along with the longer topical sessions. They are perfect lengths for listening to in the car or during breaks from work. Always relevant and lead to important family discussions. The mix of Christian, historical, political, and current social issues is exactly what is needed and you deliver every weekday! God bless the works of your hands. You and Kevin are absolutely appreciated.”
Thank you Jeremy.
Does his email express the sentiment of your heart? Do you appreciate what we do day in and day out? Would you be willing to make a donation right now?
We are $22,465 short of our goal by this Friday, June 28th

And another 40 Worldview listeners who will give $25 per month for a year for a total gift of $300. There are only 4 days left.

His plan would raise $2.2 trillion over ten years by taxing Americans who want to invest in stocks and bonds.
