Scottish church leaves Episcopal denomination
St. Silas Church, in the West End of Glasgow, Scotland has become the latest church to quit the Episcopal Church of Scotland over its liberal interpretation of Scripture, reports ChristianToday.com.
The church said in a statement, “Recent decisions of the Scottish Episcopal Church have made clear to us that the denomination does not regard the Bible as the authoritative word of God. …We have taken the decision to leave because of our commitment to Jesus Christ and His word.”
Proverbs 30:5 declares, “Every word of God is flawless; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.”
1,000 U.S. troops headed to Middle East
Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan announced on Monday that the U.S. will be sending 1,000 additional troops to the Middle East to “address air, naval, and ground-based threats” in the area, reports ChristianHeadlines.com.
Last Thursday, Iranian forces are believed to have used limpet mines to attack two oil tankers, leaving major damage behind.
According to Fox News, the photos – which were taken from a Navy helicopter – not only reveal the damage done to the ships, but also show several members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy extracting an unexploded mine from the side of the Japanese oil tanker Courageous.
President Trump kicks off re-election bid before 20,000
President Donald Trump formally launched his 2020 re-election campaign last night in Orlando, Florida at the Amway Center in front of a capacity crowd of 20,000 people, reports Heavy.com.
TRUMP: “Exactly four years ago this week, I announced my campaign for President of the United States. And it turned out to be more just than a political campaign. It turned out to be a great political movement because of you. It’s a movement made up of hard-working patriots who love their country, love their flag, love their children, and who believe that a nation must care for its own citizens first.”
House Speaker Pelosi: Pro-lifers want dirty water, dirty air
Unable to defend the fact that Democrats in Congress have blocked a bill to stop infanticide almost 60 times, pro-abortion speaker Nancy Pelosi attacked pro-life Republicans saying that they hate people and want them to have dirty air and water, reports LifeNews.com.
Despite the fact that pro-life lawmakers have never supported dirty air and dirty water, Pelosi made the false claim at a forum on health care at East Los Angeles College on Monday. Listen.
PELOSI: “I don’t want to be a fear-monger, but this is scary. This is really dangerous what they’re trying to do to a woman’s right to choose. It’s a funny thing because they don’t believe in governance, they don’t want clean air, clean water, food safety — all those things that governments do, they don’t want this, they don’t want that, but they — Big government when it comes to a woman’s right to choose. Big government there. We have a fight on our hands.”
Taylor Swift advocates for sexual perversion in new song
The rainbow-clad music video for Taylor Swift’s latest single, “You Need to Calm Down,” is an ode to the homosexuals and transgenders and takes a few jabs at Christians who disagree with the lifestyle, reports FaithWire.com.
Swift hinted the song would serve as something of an anthem for the sexually perverted when the single first dropped Thursday.
Filled with celebrities like daytime lesbian TV host Ellen DeGeneres, actor Ryan Reynolds, transgender actor Laverne Cox, pop star Katy Perry, and the cast of Netflix’s “Queer Eye,” the music video portrayed those who take issue with the sexually perverted lifestyles as half-witted, hateful rednecks.
The entertainer also encouraged her fans to sign a petition urging the U.S. Senate to support the so-called “Equality Act” touted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who hails from San Francisco.
Planned Parenthood building a “beautiful” 10,000-square foot abortion mill
Planned Parenthood is constructing a new, 10,000-square-foot abortion mill in Birmingham, Alabama this summer with the hope that the new state abortion ban will never go into effect, reports LifeNews.com.
After paying $430,600 for the land last year, Barbara Ann Luttrell, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood Southeast, said, “It’s going to be a big, state-of-the-art facility with several exam rooms, offices. It will just be a new, beautiful building,” expected to open in November.
How twisted! She envisions that a gigantic death chamber that will take the lives of beautiful babies will, itself, be beautiful. Isaiah 5:20 describes Miss Luttrell to a “t”. “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil.”
Maine legalizes assisted suicide
Maine has become the latest state in the nation to legalize assisted suicide, reports the Christian Post.
Although the state’s Democrat Governor Janet Mills previously said she was hesitant about the bill, she signed it, allowing doctors to prescribe a fatal dose of medication to terminally ill patients.
Matt Valliere, executive director of Patients Rights Action Fund, said, “The legislature and Governor Janet Mills failed the people of Maine. Assisted suicide is a dangerous public policy that puts the most vulnerable people in society at risk for abuse, coercion and mistakes. It also provides profit-driven insurance companies perverse incentives to offer a quick death, rather than costly continuing quality care.”
Presently, 10 other states are considering similar bills including: New York, Arizona, Delaware, Indiana, Kansas, Iowa, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Rhode Island, and Utah.

Liberal Celebrities, Businesses Boycotting Georgia Are Only Hurting Themselves
First, actresses Jessica Chastain and Sophie Turner signed a boycott letter saying they refused to work in states like Georgia, which recently passed a law protecting unborn babies after six weeks into pregnancy, reports FaithWire.com.
Then, Netflix and Disney, said they would reconsider filming and production in the Peach State should the pro-life law take effect.
Pro-abortion actress, Alyssa Milano, who once played Tony Danza’s daughter on the sitcom “Who’s the Boss?”, called for a boycott of Georgia — known as the “Hollywood of the South” — which has provided incentives and tax breaks for film production companies.
In fiscal year 2018 alone, Georgia was home to nearly 500 film and TV production projects, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. It garnered just shy of $3 billion of direct spending in the southern state.
The reality is, the U.S. is becoming more pro-life overall and leftist media and elite celebrities are falling behind that cultural shift.
