Shocking gender indoctrination in California: VIDEO

Do not be surprised, but  Young children are being taught that they can choose to be a boy or a girl — or both. Boys, for example, should be comfortable wearing girls’ clothes and nail polish, etc. And there aren’t just two genders, there can be a range. And, of course, the school does not allow parents to opt their kids out. Redwood Heights Elementary School in Oakland, CA has hired a “gender coach” from “Gender Spectrum,” a radical gender group, to go into the classrooms. Watch...

Planned Parenthood President Compares Pro-Lifers to Murderers

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5:20 If you haven’t seen the interview ABC’s George Stephenopolis did with Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, you need to hear how she spins the bloody evidence and the smoking gun found in video after video exposing Planned Parenthood for the death mill that it is.  And yet she kept calling the people behind the “highly edited” videos and anyone else who is pro-life “militant,” comparing them to murderers....

Ron’s Testimony

If you’ve listened to our program for any length of time, you’ve heard the familiar voice of “Ron from Pulaski.”  A frequent caller to our Stand Up For The Truth program, Ron’s biblical insight on the topics we cover is much appreciated.

If you’d like to be encouraged and become more familiar with the man behind the voice, take a...

ISIS-Connected Shooter Kills Four U.S. Marines in Chattanooga

Christian News Network reports that an ISIS-connected gunman shot and killed four U.S. marines at two separate Tennessee military facilities on Thursday, before being fatally wounded by police. The shootings were carried out within two hours of each other and are believed to have been committed by the same gunman, who has been identified as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, 24. Abdulazeez is believed to be a U.S. citizen of Kawaiti origin. According to reports, ISIS, which identifies itself as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, had Tweeted about Chattanooga just minutes before the attacks were carried out. “O American dogs, soon you will see wonders,” it read, with the hashtags #Chattanooga, #USA and #ISIS. The Tweet included a photograph that resembled “Jihadi John” from ISIS’ Iraqi beheading videos. “The shootings took place at a Network Operations Support Center operated by the U.S. Navy and at an armed forces recruiting center,” DoD said in a statement. “Names of the deceased will be released following next of kin notification. We are working with local and federal authorities. We will provide additional information as it becomes available.” The first incident occurred this morning shortly after 10:45 local time at the Lee Highway Naval recruiting center, where Abdulazeez led police on a chase. Two hours later, he carried out a second attack at a Amnicola Highway military installation. Fred Wright, a Carquest saleman...

Letter: Wedding videographer closes over increasing hostility toward Christians

I’ve been talking with a long-time wedding videographer who has done beautiful work for his clients for many years. He has made the painful decision to close up shop. Here is his story: Dear Stand Up For The Truth, We operated a wedding videography business for many years. When we first entered the industry, we had no idea that one day we would have to close because of the increasing hostility towards Christians in this industry. It is sad where we arrived in this nation, but as a Christian I am hopeful since our Lord spoke of these dark days that lie ahead of us. Before the Supreme Court decision, we were already making plans to exit the industry. We saw where things seemed to be headed. In 2011, One of the nation’s largest wedding vendor websites fully embraced the homosexual wedding industry and partnered with a homosexual wedding vendor site. They added some new options on their site, that had vendors check a box as to whether or not they served homosexual weddings. If we did not check this box, we would not show up on its sister site that specializes in these weddings, and this would make Christians an easy target. All a client would have to do is check if a vendor was on the sister site, and they would know whether or not you serve...

Evangelical Lutheran Church (ELCA) ordains trans pastor

Some Christians who have long been members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), have watched in horror as their denomination has fallen to the schemes of Satan. Some have left in disgust. But for others, the Left-leaning progressive theology suits them fine, as long as there’s only the fun parts of the Bible to contend with. Everything else isn’t to be taken seriously. Read it...

Abortion images to be shown on Jumbo-tron at Lincoln Memorial

Abortion has ended more lives than the world wars and the Holocaust combined. We see those images, and say to ourselves, “Never again.” What if the world could see exactly what happens in a real abortion process?  Tomorrow in Washington D.C., they will. Created Equal, a national pro life group, will be displaying abortions in progress on a Jumbo-Tron TV screen at the Lincoln Memorial on July 14, as part of a week-long Justice Ride event.  The idea is to tell in images the hard truth about what abortion is and does. Check it out here...

Online “religious intolerance” now a crime in New Zealand

New Zealand’s government has passed the Harmful Digital Communications Bill, which declares that cyberbullying is a criminal offense. That’s a good thing, right? Wait a minute, Christian. Not so fast. Read between the lines: Anyone using digital communications like Facebook, Twitter or other apps in a way that causes “serious emotional distress” is considered to be breaking the law and could face a number of punishments. Posts that are deemed to be racist, sexist, speaking badly of someone’s sexual orientation or a disability, or showing religious intolerance are all covered by the bill. That means someone could report your post or comment by simply saying they were hurt by what you said. Ramifications of committing the newly-declared crimes include mediation, fines of up to $33,900 (US) or even time in jail. If business are found guilty of infringing, fines of up to $134,000 (US) can be imposed. It has also been made an offense to incite suicide in any way, and doing so could land you with a three-year jail sentence. Oftentimes Leftists tell Christians that because we stand for the biblical definition of marriage between one man and one woman, and that all sexual sin is sin, we incite young people who are gender confused to end their lives. Web publishers can opt in to a safe-harbor provision, protecting them from liability (and arguably also crimping free speech)...

The Thud of Silence

“You know, our message is about lifting people up, helping them fulfill their destiny, helping them to forgive in a tough time, how to make it through this life when life tries to push you down.” – Joel Osteen on why he avoids controversial issues, like sin, wrath, repentance… No, we’re not calling J-O a Christian leader, but many megachurch pastors are either silent or echoing these sentiments. Christian Post reports: Joel Osteen on Why He Avoids Political, Social Issues: ‘It’s Not What I’m Called to Do;’ Says Message Is ‘Lifting People Up’ Joel Osteen, the popular 52-year-old leader of America’s largest protestant church, Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, bluntly revealed that the reason why he avoids speaking out on hot button social and political issues, such as same-sex marriage, is because he believes that’s not what he’s called to do as a pastor. In a recent interview on WBUR’s “Here & Now” radio program Osteen, who was asked if he felt these hot button social and political issues are important, said: “I think they are important but I think everybody has their own calling.” He further explained that “It’s not what I’m called to do.” “I have friends who are very political. They’re pastors and that’s what their thing is. But I think sometimes, that the church world, we can take one issue and make it really, really big and...
