Ahoy, 2016!

Screen Shot 2015-12-30 at 6.48.28 PM

As 2015 comes to a close, I am pleased to announce that I’ve joined the crew over at Pirate Christian Radio.  Earlier this fall, founder and host Chris Rosebrough invited me to ferry these blog archives over to his new site, and continue to write news articles there.

I can’t tell you how honored I am to be on board. It’s possible that I may even be able to do radio news once again in the future. But for now I will cover the news in written form at a new blog titled, Berean Examiner. It went live just a few minutes ago!

(I want to reiterate that I will continue to write for Berean Research with my friend Marsha West. And I want to thank her for doing all the heavy lifting over there these past few weeks.)

I won’t be posting here any more. Two blogs are enough – three would drive me insane!  There is so much to tell you about what’s going on. Let’s go forward into 2016 standing strong, and without compromise. Ahoy!

Some exciting news!

Screen Shot 2015-11-11 at 10.28.36 AM

I am getting ready to set sail on a new writing adventure that will expand on how I use my voice and my passion for standing firm on God’s Word. I am so thankful to Him for instilling in me a yearning to see that sheep are following their Master rather than the promises and lies of the great deceiver. My voice may be small in an ocean of voices, but it hasn’t wavered.

Time is short, and I know you’ve noticed – the time is getting darker and more dangerous for Christians. There is work to be done, and I am preparing to roll up my already rolled-up sleeves even higher.

So, in addition to writing for Berean Research with my friend Marsha West, I’ll be sharing news and pointing to Christ in a soon-to-be-announced new venue, putting the past where it belongs and rejoicing in serving the King along with fellow brothers in Christ. Stay tuned.

1 Corinthians 15:58  Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

Setting it straight

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 5.11.13 PMI have not made any formal statement on my sudden departure from the radio station position I’ve held since 2010, but I need to now.  The details of my resignation are different from what has been reported. That is my fault, and I take full and complete responsibility for not explaining myself to our listeners, allowing – even encouraging – the August 24 explanation to go forward without correction. It was spin, and I am sorry I allowed that to happen.

My words and my thoughts are my own

Screen Shot 2016-02-17 at 6.32.35 PM

When someone puts his or her name on content that he or she did not write, it tells the world, “I wrote this myself. It came out of my head.” This is a terrible deception, and there’s a name for that.

Trash, or not trash?

One of the saddest things that has happened since I decided to separate from my former employer is the discovery of so many of my research articles taken offline, and the denial that any stories were trashed at all.  I took this screen capture of the back-end of the site:

UPDATE: Hillsong issues statement 8 months after worship leader announces his upcoming homosexual marriage

Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly, billed as the Broadway Boyfriends, will marry in 2016. Both are Hillsong choir singers. Canfield is the choir director.

Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly, billed as the Broadway Boyfriends, will marry in 2016. Both are Hillsong choir singers. Canfield is the choir director.

When one of Hillsong New York City’s worship leaders announced he is a practicing, unrepentant homosexual, and that he is marrying his fellow church singer and boyfriend, Hillsong leadership says nothing. (UPDATE: The couple’s announcement came in January, eight months ago. Today, less than 24 hours after this story published, finally, Hillsong issues a press release.)

The musician, announced to the world that he proposed to his boyfriend and also told his church leaders about his sexual practices. This quote was first issued in October 2014 and repeated again in this December article from PlayBill:

“I need to be truthful with everyone. I became truthful with my church. I’m a part of Hillsong NYC. I’m one of their choir directors. I also sing on their Worship team. They’ve been amazing as well. Nothing has changed there now that I’m completely out and with Reed. He sings in the choir as well. I found that being an honest person has actually come with a lot of benefits. People are more sincere with you, and you find out a lot more about other people when you become honest.”

Here’s the proposal at 2:40 shared by PlayBill:

You’ll recall that senior pastor Carl Lentz told CNN this in an interview last June (requoted at HuffPo):

Jesus was in the thick of an era where homosexuality, just like it is today, was widely prevalent. [False.]  And I’m still waiting for someone to show me the quote where Jesus addressed it on the record in front of people.  You won’t find it because he never did. [Yes, He did. See, WOULD THE SON OF GOD CONTRADICT THE FATHER?]   “…We have a lot of gay men and women in our church and I pray we always do.

Lentz’s wife, Laura, added: “It’s not our place to tell anyone how they should live. That’s their journey.”

And that his Australian counterpart Brian Houston said this (see, Hillsong’s Brian Houston Won’t Give Position on Same-Sex ‘Marriage ‘We’re on the Journey With It’):

…What Carl [Lentz] always says for us, it’s a conversation. For us, it’s easy to reduce what you think about homosexuality to just a public statement. And that would keep a lot of people happy. But we feel at this point, it is an ongoing conversation, that the real issues in people’s lives are too important for us to just reduce it down to a “yes” or “no” answer in a media outlet.

Houston is this year’s speaker at Willow Creek’s Global Leadership Summit. These reports come a month after Willow Creek’s worship leader Darren Calhoun announced that he is a gay man who lives celibately. But then why is he partnering with Matthew Vines’ Reformation Project to bring an all-inclusive homosexual diversity into churches everywhere? And why is he appearing at gay pride parades with his “I’m Sorry” banner, apologizing for The Church’s biblical stance on homosexuality?

These are questions that need to be asked and answered. But when we ask, all we get is deafening silence. Is it asking too much to ask Christian leaders to go on record on such an important issue?

Shocking gender indoctrination in California: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2015-07-29 at 9.26.44 AM
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. As Fox News observed, Gender Spectrum’s mission is to “create more gender-sensitive environments for kids.”
On Monday morning, children in Cynthia Bagby’s kindergarten class discussed whether there were, in fact, “girl colors” and “boy colors.” Some giggled when Joel Baum, the trainer from Gender Spectrum, read “My Princess Boy,” a nonfiction children’s book by Cheryl Kilodavis about her son who liked to wear dresses and a tiara.

Not surprisingly, in these tough economic times the program is being paid for by the California Teachers Association (CTA).

Activists using disinformation, intimidation to demonize critics

Joel Baum, the trainer from Gender Spectrum

As the Fox News report shows, the effort to intimidate any criticism of the program  is in full gear. The program is being sold as a “necessity” to help kids, and anyone against it is being labeled as someone who wants to allow kids to commit suicide.

This Fox report below features a man who is “the legal director for the Center for Lesbian Rights (at left below, and who we suspect is heavily hormone-induced “transgender” woman) defending this elementary school program. As it turns out, she/he(?) appears to be lying more than just a bit, about what it really is.

How dangerous is this power of suggestion to young minds? Very.The real question is, what can you do about it?

Nothing like this could stand on its own, even in California or Massachusetts. Thus, we see the same old lies, misrepresentations, skewed facts, and disinformation being used to silence critics — which neither public authorities nor the mainstream press ever seriously question.

Phony reasons meant to intimidate. We’re told that these “gender” programs must be implemented in elementary schools–without an opt-out ability–because:

  • Parents at home aren’t doing their job, aren’t supporting kids’ choices, and are even throwing kids out of the house if they say they are “transgender”.
  • This is absolutely necessary to stop bullying, which “transgender” kids suffer from more than others.
  • We must have respect for differences.
  • “Transgender” kids are committing suicide, and these programs must be done school-wide to stop that.
  • We need everyone to feel welcome and safe.
  • (And our favorite:) If you’re against this, then you’re in favor of teaching children to hate.
As the Mecrury News reported:
“Really, it’s about reducing and dispelling stereotypes and prejudices so kids can show up to school and feel like they can learn and thrive without being stigmatized or teased,” said Brett Bradshaw, a Redwood Heights parent who is also chairman of the school’s LGBTQ Affinity group.
Who ever heard of an elementary school having an official “LGBTQ Affinity” group? Don’t laugh. Yes, it’s madness. But it’s probably closer than you think. This kind of thing is common for activist parents to do to push agendas in their schools.

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.

Richards accused the Center for Medial Progress of being “part of the most militant wing of the anti-abortion movement,” while asserting the pro-life group is linked to organizations that bomb clinics and murder doctors.  Richards made the accusations during her Sunday appearance on ABC’s “This Week.

Watch:

The human trafficking of baby body parts for cash is now exposing the putrid underbelly of abortion that pro-abortionists can no longer avoid seeing. There is now a third, full-length documentary ( see, Third Planned Parenthood Expose Most Shocking Yet), released by The Center for Medical Progress, featuring actual footage of technicians sifting through a pie plate of legs, livers, spines and other parts, and talking about how much each piece of flesh could net them on the black market.

The video also features an interview with Holly O’Donnell, who fainted in shock on her first day of work in a Planned Parenthood clinic when suddenly asked to dissect a freshly-aborted fetus during her on-the-job training. O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist, unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress. Her job was to identify pregnant women at Planned Parenthood who met criteria for fetal tissue orders and to harvest the fetal body parts after their abortions.

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.

Recently Ron accompanied our dear friends Vince and Lori Williams of Falsified Ministries to a conference in Missouri, and they captured Ron’s testimony of how he became born again. If you’d like to be encouraged and become more familiar with the man behind the voice, take a listen!

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

Screen Shot 2015-07-16 at 4.34.00 PMChristian 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 near the Naval center, told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that he heard gunfire and then saw military personnel rush through the area.

Connect with Christian News
“I just heard all the shooting,” he stated. “All of them (Navy recruiters) starting running through the brush and the briars. One of them was yelling, ‘Call 911, someone’s shooting at us.’”

Wright then called 911 and three military personnel hurried inside his store.
