via Fight Inequality, Promote Matrimony: Marriage As A Social Justice Issue

When somebody asks you whether you support social justice, just say, “Sure I do–I believe in marriage!”

These days, marriage is under attack, with government and pop culture redefining it and increasing numbers of young people ignoring it. Interestingly, many of them are deriding what they call America’s failures in “social justice.” Could there be a connection? Our friend Glenn Stanton certainly thinks so.

Stanton, who is the director of family formation studies at Focus on the Family and the author of eight books, has penned a great piece in The Federalist titled “The Research Proves the No. 1 Social Justice Imperative Is Marriage.”

via ISIS’ Next Plan: Ticking Time-Bomb Kids In Europe

ISIS has entered refugee camps in the Middle East to brainwash women and children into becoming suicide bombers in Europe. That’s according to the European Centre for Counterterrorism and Intelligence Studies.

This is ISIS’ latest tactic in the wake of its crippling defeats in Syria and Iraq. The Centre mentions camps in Turkey but says Islamic State is also active in camps in other countries. Lebanon and Jordan are both major destinations for refugees from the fighting. There are also IDP (internally displaced people) camps in Iraq.

via Chinese Hypersonic Multi-Nuke Will Be Able To Strike Anywhere In The World

In mere months, China will have a ballistic missile completed and ready to strike anywhere in the world in 30 minutes. And it can carry up to ten nuclear warheads.

The Dongfeng-41 missile, which is said to have the longest range of any ballistic rockets in the world, has undergone its eighth test and is now near completion, according to state-run media.

Previous reports have claimed that the missile has a range of at least 7,500 miles (12,000km) and could carry up to 10 nuclear warheads – meaning it could strike multiple targets. The new missile also has a speed of more than Mach 10, or ten times the speed of sound (7,672mph) and can use decoy devices to find its way through the enemy’s missile defense systems.

Geologists See 2018 As Year Of Monster Quakes

WASHINGTON – Geophysicists who studied seismic activity over the past 117 years report 2018 could be shaping up as a year of monster earthquakes – especially around the equator.

Why?

The signal that causes the alarm from a historical pattern, they say, is the slowing of the Earth’s rotation.

via White House excludes April Ryan from Christmas party – AOL News

The White House reportedly failed to invite one prominent journalist of color to this year’s Christmas party, and it’s the first time she’s been excluded from the event in 20 years.

It’s April Ryan.

And as one of the few female minority journalists with credentials to the White House press pool, who has had a history of clashing repeatedly with ex-White House press secretary Sean Spicer and his successor, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, she believes the omission is no mistake.

via Conyers not quitting after Pelosi calls on him to resign – AOL News

WASHINGTON, Nov 30 (Reuters) – U.S. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday called on Democratic Representative John Conyers to resign, calling sexual harassment allegations against him serious and credible, but Conyers’ attorney said he was not thinking of stepping down.

“It is not up to Nancy Pelosi,” attorney Arnold Reed told reporters in Detroit, Michigan. “Nancy Pelosi did not elect the congressman, and she sure as hell won’t be the one that tells the congressman to leave.”

“That decision will be completely up to the congressman. He’s not thought of that,” Reed said. Instead, Conyers, 88, was focusing on his health after being hospitalized late on Wednesday after suffering dizziness, light-headedness and shortness of breath, Reed said.

via School Board Member Says Spiritual Battle in Public Schools Worse Than When He Was a Marine | CBN News

Pastor Alvin Dupree who serves on the Appleton, Wisconsin school board, says he’s facing a tougher fight now than he did on the battlefield during the twenty years he served as a Marine.

Dupree vows he will not back down from speaking about Jesus despite pressure to do so. “This is who I am,” he told CBN News, “I will not be silenced.”

Dupree spoke at the Appleton North High School graduation last spring, at which time he spoke about the value of leaning on God through difficult times. Dupree was referring to the suicides of two students that year. One of those students was Erika Winkler. Her mother told CBN News her daughter was bullied for her faith, and that contributed to her suicide.

via University demands people be warned about seeing a cross

World War II servicemen barely out of high school were buried under crosses as were troops who served in Korea and Vietnam.

But now, one American university says that just seeing crosses can cause “emotional trauma.”

That’s the subject of a new lawsuit by the Alliance Defending Freedom over a demand from Miami University of Ohio that pro-life students post warnings about their display of small crosses in the ground.

“No university official has the authority to censor student speech simply because of how someone might respond to it,” said ADF Legal Counsel Travis Barham. “Like all government officials, public university administrators have an obligation to respect students’ free speech rights.
