ABC News legal contributor Kimberly Wehle claimed in a Politico op-ed Wednesday that the conservative Supreme Court justices are aiming to impose a religious, Christian view on the United States.
“Justice Alito doesn’t think society is Christian enough. Recent court decisions show how he intends to remedy that,” read the subtitle.
Wehle argued that the recent decisions on the Dobbs, Carson and Kennedy cases show that “religious conservatives” seek to “undermine the bedrock concept of separation of church and state and to promote Christianity as an intrinsic component of democratic government.”
“This Robe of My Glory has always been in you, but now shall be seen upon you! It is Confrontation Time!
Did I not say that ‘All these things have been working for you a more exceeding weight of glory?’
And truly My People shall begin to shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their father, and they will have the authority to decree and thing and so shall it be established!
For this is The Season of the King and His kings and priests upon the earth, and you shall reign in every mountain of society!
So prepare yourself My Darling, for you shall be a part of My Kingdom Business and we will rule and reign in this season together, My grown up Sons and Daughters!
Let your light so shine that men will see your good deeds and glorify your Father upon the earth even in the midst of gross darkness!”
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light,”1 Peter 2:9 NKJV.
Los Angeles County has notified Grace Community Church, led by Pastor John MacArthur, that it will soon be evicted from a parcel of land it uses as a parking lot — a move lawyers say is retaliation for the church’s decision to hold indoor worship services amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a letter dated Aug. 28, the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works informed the Sun Valley-based church that on Oct. 1, it is being evicted from a large portion of the parking lot of the church that has been in place continuously since 1975.
The county warns that if Grace Community Church fails to vacate the premise as required, “the District may enter the premises and remove Grace’s personal property in accordance with the Agreement and applicable law, and Grace will be responsible for any resultant expenses incurred by the District.”
VATICAN CITY (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis today received in audience a prominent priest known for his long-standing public rejection of Catholic teaching, advocacy of LGBT ideology, and downplaying of the role of Jesus in salvation.
The FBI on Thursday raided three churches associated with the House of Prayer Christian Church in Georgia and Texas.
The FBI has not released a statement regarding the raids.
The House of Prayer is owned by the foreign nonprofit company House of Prayer Christian Churches of America Inc., which registered with the Georgia Secretary of State in 2004. The business’s listed officers are affiliated with the Georgia churches and use Hinesville, Georgia, post office boxes as mailing addresses.
Its churches, which are primarily located near military bases throughout the country, have been accused by former members and a veterans’ advocacy group of operating like a cult and targeting soldiers.
In August 2020, Veterans Education Success, an advocacy organization based in Washington D.C., asked the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Georgia Veterans Service to investigate alleged abuses of the GI Bill program by House of Prayer Christian Church’s bible seminaries.
Veterans alleged the House of Prayer Christian Church “deceives the VA during inspections and targets veterans in order to access GI Bill funding, VA disability compensation, and VA home loans,” according to the organization’s letter to the VA and Georgia SAA.
The Supreme Court on Monday issued a ruling upholding the First Amendment right of free speech with regard to prayer. The Court ruled in favor of a high school football coach who was told he was not to pray on the field post-game in the case of Kennedy v. Bremerton School District.The 6-3 ruling determined that the school district in 2015 violated the coach’s rights to free speech when they prohibited him from praying on the field, and that coach subsequently lost his job over the matter. The majority opinion was written by Justice Neil Gorsuch, who was joined by Chief Justice Roberts, along with Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Amy Coney Barrett. Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the opinion, except as regards one section.
Coach Joseph Kennedy had lost his job as a coach because he would kneel in midfield post-games to offer a prayer, usually about 30 seconds. The firing was because the Bremerton School District believed that, to allow Kennedy to pray, would indicate that they were endorsing his religious beliefs. However, Gorsuch wrote, “That reasoning was misguided. Both the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment protect expressions like Mr. Kennedy’s.”
