Last month Muslim activist Linda Sarsour gave a speech in Sacramento in which she urged Muslims to become political because “Muhammad was a human rights activist,” and Trump a fascist. The self-described “Islamophobe’s worst nightmare” went on to claim that Islam has always been an “anti-racist, feminist, and empowering religion,” and that our modern understanding of human rights are unnecessary because Islam already teaches these things. Sarsour explained: “I go to a lot of mosques or community centers and this is what they say to me. They say: ‘Sister Linda, we know that you’re very political, but in my mosque,…

The ABC’s official political twitter account has suggested that Saudi Arabia is more female friendly than the Coalition. The tweet, posted by the public broadcaster yesterday said, “A visiting Saudi Arabian delegation has a higher proportion of women than the Coalition.” Attached to the tweet was an image of six Saudi men and two hijab clad women. Simon Breheny, Director of policy at the Institute of Public Affairs called the tweet “sickening.” “This commentary from the ABC is a good illustration of the form-over-substance approach of those who practice radical identity politics,” Breheny said. “Behold the equality enjoyed by Saudi…

YouTube came close to removing Stefan Molyneux’s channel with more than 800,000 subscribers after his videos were apparently mass false flagged. In a statement released on Twitter and retweeted close to 5,000 times, Molyneux explained: Apparently, I had ‘violated community standards’ by publishing a short video last year entitled ‘The Death of White Males,’ which discussed the decline in life expectancy for white males, in part due to the opioid crisis. The next day, Wednesday, I awoke to another strike, this time for a discussion I had with UK journalist Katie Hopkins. Now, as I write this, two other Freedomain…

A woman from Portland, Oregon has said she felt “invaded” after receiving a disturbing phone call from one of her husband’s employee’s. “Unplug your Alexa devices right now,” he said. “You’re being hacked.” In an “unlikely string of events” the couple’s Amazon Echo recorded a private conversation and sent the audio to the man without their knowledge. “I felt invaded,” the woman said. “A total privacy invasion. Immediately I said, ‘I’m never plugging that device in again, because I can’t trust it.” Amazon confirmed the private conversation had been inadvertently recorded and sent to a contact. According to a statement…

Nope, it’s not April Fools Day. That was almost three weeks ago. This is unfortunately real. Australian soldiers have been banned from wearing “symbols of death” because they encourage “arrogance.” Such symbols include the skull and crossbones, the grim reaper, and the Phantom. According to The Australian, “Chief of Army Lt Gen Campbell on Tuesday issued the directive to the Army banning the ‘display or adoption of symbols, emblems and iconography’ which he says are ‘at odds with the army’s values and the ethical force we seek to build and sustain.” Banned symbols include the skull and cross bones, which…

Today is Francisco Balagtas’ 230th birthday. How do I know that? It’s all thanks to Google Doodles, “the fun, surprising, and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists.” Well, not all holidays are equal, it appears. The Google homepage was looking rather empty this Easter, with not so much as an egg in sight. Really? Now even the Bunny is offensive? It would seem Randy Smith was right in saying: Today people now feel uncomfortable when you mention the Easter Bunny. It’s not that…

Hear her words and please share her story! – I’ve spent an hour trying to figure out how to start this letter and there’s no easy or good way to…

“He did not know that the LORD had left him.” (Judges 16:20) This is perhaps one of the saddest verses in all of the Bible. Samson, the strongest man that ever lived, awoke to find himself surrounded by his enemies. But what was more troubling than the evil that was present, was the good that was absent. God had left Samson, and he did not realise it until it was too late. Today the results of the Same-Sex Marriage survey were released. More than 12.7 million people (79.5%) respond to the question, Should the law be changed to allow same-sex…

Jonah had been given the onerous task of going to Nineveh to preach against its sins. Instead, he had taken off in the opposite direction, not because he was a coward but because he feared that God would forgive the Ninevites. He wanted God to do to Nineveh what He had done to Sodom and Gomorrah. Before God dealt with Nineveh, He had to deal with His backsliding servant, Jonah. Because God loves His people, He chastens them (Heb.12:5-6). God closes in on Jonah. God chastens the backslider The Lord sent a great storm which threatened the ship. So afraid…
