Daily Headlines on contemporary issues that impact a Biblical Christian worldview.
“Israel won’t criminalize sharing the Gospel amid pushback to new bill, Netanyahu says”…
“In a tweet posted Wednesday in both English and Hebrew, Netanyahu expressed his opposition to a bill proposed by members of the United Torah Judaism party to punish Christian proselytization with one year in prison.
“We will not advance any law against the Christian community,” Netanyahu tweeted in response to concerns.
The bill was introduced by two Knesset members Moshe Gafni, a long-serving lawmaker who has frequently proposed such legislation over the past couple of decades, and Yaakov Asher, according to a translation of the bill shared by All Israeli News. “
“State Legislation Could Strip Catholic Churches’ Right To Protect Members ‘Sealed Confessions’…
“Two bills in Delaware and Vermont are looking to remove the religious right of Catholic priests to withhold information given to them during a confession to protect children from abuse, but Catholic advocates argue that these bills will only harm the church.
Lawmakers have argued that mandatory reporting must extend to everyone, including the Catholic church to fully protect children from abuse or neglect.”
“Fight breaks out at Texas capitol over trans activist’s viral speech comparing lawmakers to Hitler”…
“Transgender activist Loren Perkins spoke in favor of drag performances during a fiery speech at the Texas State Capitol in an address that led to a physical altercation last week.
The moment quickly went viral on TikTok, picking up more than 1 million views on the platform.
Perkins compared Texas state lawmakers to the Nazis in opposition to legislation that would prohibit public libraries and other venues from receiving state funding if they host drag shows.”
“Cities and communities are withdrawing from the US”…
“If you’re looking for another continent dividing in real time, you could focus on the United States. Professor Michael J. Lee writes in The Conversation that a “scaled secession” is already taking place within the United States. This is not the “national divorce” that has been recently in the news but “soft separatism” in which communities are distancing from one another in a variety of ways.
Wealthier areas are separating into parallel school districts. Eleven states calling themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries” refuse to enforce federal gun restrictions. Eleven counties in Eastern Oregon support seceding and reclassifying themselves as “Greater Idaho”; Idaho’s state government supports the move. Over two dozen rural Illinois counties, seeking to be free of Chicago’s political influence, have passed pro-secession referendums.”
“Drag queen appears to perform lap dance on student at Pride event with high schoolers”…
“Forsyth Technical Community College hosted a Pride Festival on March 22, that boasted drag shows, contraceptives, and lured students in with free food and drinks.
The festival was produced by Forsyth Tech’s Pride Club and was joined by organizations like Prevent Ongoing Spread of STIs Everywhere (POSSE), a program of the Forsyth County Health Department. Ironically, various churches and ministers were invited to this event.”
“Biden Orders Federal Reserve To ‘Explore’ Digital Cash”…
“According to a report from the Gatestone Institute, Biden’s plan for the future of the dollar is about to create further chaos in America’s economy.
Lawrence Kadish, who is on the board of governors of the organization, wrote that Biden’s “little-noticed” plan for “digital cash” appeared recently in an executive order.
In fact, “this order includes language that allows the Federal Reserve System to ‘explore’ the possibility of introducing digital currency into the United States,” he wrote.”
“‘Once In A Generation Crisis’: Vets Blame Biden’s Focus on Woke Priorities for Low Military Recruitment Numbers”…
“America is facing a “once in a generation military recruitment crisis” due to the Pentagon’s focus on woke priorities that are dividing the nation’s fighting force and leaving it unprepared for a conflict with China, an expert panel of military veterans warned Congress on Tuesday.
