‘Catholic,’ ‘Christian’ gay projects funded by homosexualist billionaire

    LifeSiteNews: Top ‘gay-rights’ groups claiming to represent Christians and Catholics, and at least one Jesuit-run college, are being funded by a major homosexualist business magnate with the aim of stirring up dissent within the ranks of the church . . . The Arcus Foundation was begun by Jon Stryker, an openly gay billionaire stockholder and a leading supporter of homosexualist initiatives. A 2006 Salon article points to the influence of gay software millionaire and activist Tom Gill on Stryker.

Is Secularism Neutral?

    Andrea Minichiello Williams at Christian Concern for Our Nation: One of the most encouraging parts of this decision is the clear understanding from the Judges that secularism is not neutral. Judge Power said that: “Neutrality requires a pluralist approach on the part of the State, not a secularist one. … secularism (which was the applicant’s preferred belief or world view) was, in itself, one ideology among others. A preference for secularism over alternative world views—whether religious, philosophical or otherwise—is not a neutral option.” Judge Bonnello said that “Freedom of religion is not secularism. Freedom of religion is not the separation of Church and State. Freedom of religion is not religious equidistance – all seductive notions, but of which no one has so far appointed this Court to be the custodian. In Europe, secularism is optional, freedom of religion is not.”

World Magazine: The Race Begins and Other News Briefs – Faithful Givers

    World Magazine: A common complaint leveled at evangelical Christians, according to David French, is that they’re obsessed with gays and abortion. “The criticism is so common that it’s often internalized and adopted by the church itself,” he writes. So French, director of the Alliance Defense Fund (“a card-­carrying member of the professional religious right”), decided to crunch some numbers—and found there’s no comparison between what Christians give to cause-oriented organizations like his and what they give to anti-poverty groups like World Vision. We fight culture wars, he said, but our charitable obsession is “serving our fellow man.”

Thieves Hijacking the Language of the Moral Tradition

    OrthodoxyToday.org: What happens then when people leave Christianity and want to promote ideas about morality that violate the moral tradition? They have only one option: Hijack the language. They use the terms of traditional Christianity but mean very different things by them. Words don’t mean what they used to mean. Language gets inverted, turned upside down. Do this long and loud enough, and in less than a generation the new meanings take hold. When hijackers use the language of the moral tradition, they implicitly claim to stand inside that tradition. It’s only a pose of course, but their pose fools many people.

Internet to be Controlled Under Proposed Cyber Law

    ConservativeActionAlerts.com: In every instance where any government in the world has triggered their Internet kill switch (which every government in the world possesses), whether affecting only their broadband users, or both broadband and dial-up users, and whether those shutdowns were complete or impacted only segments of the Internet market in that country, those shutdowns or denials of access to the Information Superhighway targeted the law-abiding population at large whom those governments felt they had cause to fear.

Wisconsin’s Battle Supreme: Unions bid for a liberal court majority to undo Walker’s reforms

    Wall Street Journal (full text via Google): Wisconsin Democrats and unions are still seething over their failure to thwart Governor Scott Walker’s government union reforms. Now they’re trying to spin their rage into gold by aiming it at the state Supreme Court election on April 5. If they defeat David Prosser’s re-election bid, labor leaders and their Democratic allies hope a newly activist court will be their proxy in the fight against Mr. Walker’s policies.

UN: Adoption of Resolution at Human Rights Council

    U.S. Dept. of State: The United States welcomes today’s action by the UN Human Rights Council to further the international community’s efforts to combat religious intolerance. The consensus resolution adopted by the Council today represents a significant step forward in the global dialogue on countering intolerance, discrimination, and violence against persons based upon religion or belief. We appreciate the leadership shown by the Organization of the Islamic Conference and member states on today’s landmark achievement. The United States strongly supports today’s resolution, which rejects the broad prohibitions on speech called for in the former “defamation of religions” resolution . . .
