Ocasio-Cortez unleashes on Christians

from WND:

Accuses them of ‘weaponizing and abusing Scripture to justify bigotry’

Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has accused Christians of “weaponizing” the Bible to support “bigotry.”

At a Democratic-led House Oversight Committee hearing Thursday about Trump’s “religious liberty assault on LGBTQ rights,” said Christians who justified slavery in the 19th century did the same, the Washington Examiner reported.

Pope Francis the Taxman

by Antonius Aquinas, Antonius Aquinas:

On the heels of calling for a Marxist economic conference this coming March (“Economy of Francesco”), Jorge Bergoglio (a.k.a. “Pope Francis”) has once again opined on financial matters.  The purported head of the Catholic Church has now designated “tax cuts” as sinful behavior on a par, apparently, with stealing, lying, and adultery:

Today’s structures of sin include repeated tax cuts for the richest people,

often justified in the name of investment and development.*

Pope Francis Calls For Global Wealth Redistribution

by Alicia Luke, Freedom OutPost:

Pope Francis calls tax cuts for the wealthy a ‘structure of sin’ as he tells a Vatican conference the ‘rich world can and must end poverty.’

‘Today’s structures of sin include repeated tax cuts for the richest people, often justified in the name of investment and development,’ Francis told the meeting organized by the Pontifical Academy for Social Sciences. ‘We are neither condemned to inequality nor to paralysis in the face of injustice.’

360 Billion Locusts And Growing – A Plague Of ‘Biblical Proportions’ Is Destroying Crops Across The Middle East And Africa

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

What we are witnessing in east Africa and across much of the Middle East right now is hard to believe.  360 billion locusts are eating everything in sight, and UN officials are warning that this plague of “Biblical proportions” could get many times worse over the next several months.  Desert locusts can travel up to 93 miles a day, and each adult can consume the equivalent of its own weight in food every 24 hours.  These voracious little creatures are traveling in absolutely colossal swarms that are up to 40 miles wide, and they continue to push into new areas.  If urgent action is not taken on a massive scale, millions upon millions of people could soon have next to nothing to eat.

Pope Francis Calls Marxist Economic Summit

by Antonius Aquinas, Antonius Aquinas:

Pope Francis and his mentor

As if there needs to be further evidence that the current occupant of St. Peter’s Chair in Rome is a Marxist, the announcement of an upcoming conference at Assisi entitled the “Economy of Francesco” should convince any skeptic otherwise.

In his invitation letter to “young economists and entrepreneurs worldwide,” Bergoglio sets the agenda for the Leftist confab quite clearly which is virulently anti-market, a call for massive redistribution of wealth, and a reordering of the current economic systems of the world with a healthy dose of climate change nonesense:

China Just Escalated Their Brutal Persecution Of Christians To An Entirely New Level

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Be very thankful that you don’t live in China.  Approximately one out of every seven people on the entire planet lives in China, and it has become one of the most dystopian societies that the world has ever seen.  Surveillance cameras, government spies and facial recognition scanners are everywhere, and the totalitarian “social credit score” system that is currently being rolled out is an absolute nightmare.  And the Chinese government is not content to simply control how people behave.  They also want to literally control what people believe, and the ongoing crackdown on the Christian faith has been absolutely brutal.  Over the past several years, scores of pastors have been arrested, countless underground churches have been shut down, and thousands of Bibles have been burned.  Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough for Chinese officials, and so they have now taken things to an entirely new level.

No House Of Worship In America Is Safe

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

The events of the past couple of days should be a major wake up call for all of us.  The number of mass shootings in the United States hit a record high in 2019 as the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted on a daily basis continues to disappear.  And these mass shooters seem particularly attracted to soft targets such as schools and churches.  When I was growing up, I never even imagined that a gunman might storm into my school or church and start shooting.  And as far as I knew, neither my school nor my church had any sort of armed security.  But now if you are attending a church or sending your kids to a school that does not have armed security, you are literally gambling with the lives of your family members.  The world that we live in has dramatically changed, and if we choose to ignore the harsh realities that now confront us, we do so at our own peril.

France Bans Nativity Scene from Pubic Property

0

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

France has banned the display of any Nativity scenes from public property which has many French quite upset that because of the large Muslim population, the very culture of France has been changed. It is interesting that normally people migrate because they want to be part of that culture. That has not been the case in Europe.

Even Muslims I know who grew up in Europe before these refugees are upset. They had no problem with Western law. This was never part of their goals either. You cannot enter a foreign country and demand they change everything to comply with what you were use to back home.

Michigan County Threatens to Demolish Amish Homes Unless They Give Up Religious Beliefs and Upgrade

by Sean Walton, Activist Post:

After harassing the Amish community for years regarding its water supply and disposal, the county health department posted signs on the Amish families’ homes earlier this year condemning them as “unfit for human habitation” and filed lawsuits against 14 Amish families in November.

If successful, the lawsuits would result in the demolition of the Amish families’ homes and would effectively banish an entire religious community from Lenawee County. The ACLU and Wright & Schulte filed answers to those lawsuits Wednesday in Lenawee County Circuit Court, which include counterclaims against the county for religious discrimination in violation of the federal and state constitutions and the federal Fair Housing Act.

Report: Pope Francis Uses Charity Fund to Paper Over Scandal-Plagued Vatican on Verge of Bankruptcy

by Shane Trejo, Big League Politics:

The Vatican’s fiscal woes are hurting the needy.

Donations collected by Roman Catholics for the poor are being funneled to a cash-strapped Vatican that has spent itself into near insolvency, according to a report published by the Wall Street Journal.

Pope Francis’ charitable fund for the poor, which is called Peter’s Pence, is being pilfered to paper over the Vatican’s budget woes. As little as 10 percent of the money is being spent on actually helping the needy while about two-thirds are being used to keep the Vatican afloat, the report claims.
