Daily Headlines on contemporary issues that impact a Biblical Christian worldview.

“On Wednesday, Spotsylvania County Public Schools (SCPS) in Fredericksburg, Va. announced that it would be removing 14 books that “contain sexually explicit content and themes that are inappropriate for young persons” from the school district’s libraries.

“Has the FBI Been ‘Weaponized’ by Politics?”…
“Although half of voters still have a favorable opinion of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, most agree with a whistleblower’s description of the agency as having been “politically weaponized” by its leadership.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. voters have a favorable impression of the FBI, including 22% who have a Very Favorable view of the bureau.

“If you could order and pay for food with your palm, would you do it? Panera Bread café is hoping you’ll say yes to palm scanning, but first you should know the conditions: you’ll obtain a MyPanera membership, then link it to an Amazon One account that will use your palm scan as payment. The company will then know your name and your favorite orders at checkout.
What if advances like Panera’s palm-scanning technology were to be used for more than purchasing a meal? What if digital technology were to be employed to monitor everything we do and then to punish those who act in ways the monitors disfavor?
This is happening today.
“Catholic Pelosi advises Americans to set aside religious values in the voting booth”…
“While quick to fall back on her Roman Catholic faith when it’s politically expedient, U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi advised Americans to set aside their religious values when voting and go with how issues may affect their lives.
In a clear sign of how far the mighty have fallen, the former House speaker appeared on Joy Reid’s lowly rated MSNBC show best known for driving racial discord, and was set up nicely by the gushing Democratic operative posing as a network talking head — the choreography going seamlessly as if practiced.
