|Local Pennsylvania Bridal Shop Harassed and Threatened By LGBT Activists After Turning Away Same Sex Couple
Posted: 06 Mar 2018 02:07 PM PST
In July of 2017, a local bridal shop in Pennsylvania received threatening voicemails from LGBT activists, after a same-sex couple was denied service because it violated the shop owners moral obligation to uphold Christian values. Similar organizations have fallen victim to the viciousness of the LGBT supposedly tolerant community. Posted on the Bridal shop’s Facebook page were two voicemails
which they received. According to the description of the encounter, these are not the only voicemails received by the bridal shop, in fact, other, similar threatening voicemails have been received, except they are typically anonymous. The Christian Journal has reached out for commentary, and details of what took place surrounding the incident. READ MORE
|Extreme cold results in severe agricultural damage across Europe, food prices rising
Posted: 06 Mar 2018 02:03 PM PST
Record-breaking cold temperatures that hit Europe just before the start of 2018 meteorological spring, claiming lives of at least 50 people, are also responsible for severe agricultural damage. While the full extent of the damage won’t be clear for quite some time, severe damage is already evident and some food prices have already gone up. A prolonged period of extremely cold temperatures, accompanied by icy rain and snow that hit Europe after unusually warm January and February claimed lives of at least
50 people and caused severe agricultural damage across the continent. While it’s too early to know the full extent of the damage at this time, European farmers say many cultures were almost in bloom and ready for spring before extremely cold temperatures arrived. Prolonged below freezing temperatures were latter accompanied by freezing rain and snow, accumulating damage with each passing day and forcing farmers to increase their food prices. READ MORE
|Strong magnitude 6.7 aftershock strikes Papua New Guinea
Posted: 06 Mar 2018 01:58 PM PST
A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.7 hit Papua New Guinea at 14:13 UTC on March 6, 2018. The agency is reporting a depth of 22.9 km (14.2 miles). Geoscience Australia is reporting M6.8 at a depth of 0 km. This is the strongest aftershock to hit the region since the massive M7.5 earthquake on February 25, 2018. According to the USGS, the epicenter of today’s M6.7 was located 56.5 km (35.1 miles) SW of Tari (population 8 186), 116.8 km (72.6 miles) W of Mendi
(population 26 252), and 147.4 km (91.6 miles) E of Kiunga (population 11 536). The USGS issued a green alert for shaking-related fatalities and economic losses. There is a low likelihood of casualties and damage. Overall, the population in this region resides in structures that are vulnerable to earthquake shaking, though resistant structures exist. The predominant vulnerable building types are unreinforced brick with concrete floor and precast concrete frame with wall construction. READ MORE
|London Closes 500 Churches; Opens 423 New Mosques
Posted: 06 Mar 2018 01:53 PM PST
The creeping Islamization of London is almost complete, with hundreds of official sharia courts operating in the capital, and mosques opening where famous Christian churches have stood for many hundreds of years. “London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together“, according to Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi, one of the Islamic preachers who now lead “Londonistan“, as the journalist Melanie Phillips has called the English capital. No, Rizvi is not a right-wing extremist.
Nobel Laureate for Literature,Wole Soyinka, was less generous. He called the UK “a cesspit for Islamists“. “Terrorists can not stand London multiculturalism“, London’s mayor Sadiq Khan said after the deadly terror attack at Westminster last year. The opposite is true: British multiculturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism. READ MORE

|Has The King Of The East Now Taken His Throne?
Posted: 06 Mar 2018 05:52 AM PST
It was a bland, bureaucratic statement—but its implications could be profound. In late February, China’s Communist Party announced a proposal to abolish term limits for its highest office. The party hasn’t made a final decision, but the news seemed to confirm what many have long suspected: Xi Jinping, the country’s leader, wants to be president for life. The announcement wasn’t surprising, but many didn’t expect it to come so soon. Aside from being president, Xi is also the general secretary of the Communist Party and commander in chief of the country’s armed forces. The term limits on his
presidency effectively constrain his ability to hold the other two jobs. Since Xi took office in March 2013, he’s been consumed with his fight against corruption. This battle is basically a proxy for him and his allies to consolidate control over the highest levels of the party, as well as big state-owned companies. In Chinese politics, personal rivalries and differing agendas are rarely visible to the outside world. So many had assumed Xi’s fight was still ongoing, given how deeply entrenched corruption is in China. If the party does decide to end term limits for president, it could have major implications for the nation—and the world. Domestically, it would rupture what has been a stable system of succession.

|Guatemala to Celebrate Israel’s 70th Birthday with Jerusalem Embassy Move
Posted: 06 Mar 2018 05:50 AM PST
Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales announced to thousands of Israel supporters in Washington that his nation will join the United States in moving its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in May to coincide with Israel’s 70th anniversary. Last year, Morales announced it would follow the U.S. in moving its embassy, and in a speech Sunday before the annual AIPAC Policy Conference, he said the
move will happen as Israel celebrates its founding. “In May of this year, we will celebrate Israel’s 70th anniversary, and under my instructions two days after the US will move its embassy, Guatemala will return and permanently move its embassy to Jerusalem,” Morales said. Morales, an evangelical Christian, thanked President Trump for his leadership in declaring that the US Embassy would move. “His courageous decision has encouraged us to do what is right,” Morales explained.

|Man declared dead ‘wakes up moments before autopsy’
Posted: 06 Mar 2018 05:46 AM PST
A man who ‘died’ in a car crash in India reportedly woke up just moments before his autopsy. The autopsy was just about to begin on Himanshu Bharadwaj, who had been pronounced dead by doctors, before a pathologist detected a pulse. Bharadwaj had been seriously injured in a car accident. After his condition worsened in hospital, he was first declared brain dead and then medically dead. He was kept in the mortuary overnight before the planned post-mortem, reports Daily Bhaskar. Dr C Gedam of the Chhindwara District Hospital said the man continues to be brain dead and still needs treatment, telling News 18:
The man was declared brain dead and upon his arrival at Chhindwara hospital his respiration was dysfunctional and the pulse was also missing. However, his respiratory organs began responding this morning. At times, in brain-dead patients, the heart and the respiratory system stop functioning transiently, which seems to be the case here. Himanshu is still brain dead. Thus, we have referred him to Nagpur due to lack of sufficient facilities locally. READ MORE
|DEVELOPING: Yellow fever spreads in Brazil, Government struggles to vaccinate millions…
Posted: 06 Mar 2018 05:41 AM PST
With air mattresses and beach chairs tucked under their arms, they began arriving as early as midnight, lining up down the sidewalk and around the corner in downtown Sao Paulo, Brazil. “Make sure you have your vaccination card and your number in hand,” a public health clinic worker shouted to those lucky enough to have one of the 300 numbers that would allow them to receive a full dose of the yellow fever vaccine, good for a lifetime. “If you’re not here when your number is called, you’ll lose your place in line!”Brazil is fighting to stay ahead of one of its worst epidemics of yellow fever, a
sometimes-fatal virus transmitted by Haemagogus and Sabethes mosquitoes and named for the yellowing of the skin and eyes of those infected. Though the surge has largely been in rural areas, there is increasing concern that if people don’t get the vaccine, the virus could spread into the country’s biggest cities. Those lined up on the January morning in Sao Paulo were also racing against the clock. The Brazilian government, faced with the task of vaccinating millions as quickly as possible, READ MORE
|US deploys missiles just miles from Russia border
Posted: 06 Mar 2018 05:36 AM PST
US President Donald Trump deployed the defensive devices just 60 miles away from the border. Head of Russia’s defense committee – Vladimir Shamanov – said the country was set to do the same in response. He said: “This situation is, of course, under control, and mirror measures have been undertaken or would be undertaken without delay.” Shamanov added: “The threats are high. Given the
short flight-in time, they [the US] make us address certain tasks, some of which have been settled, but some are still due. “Of course, it is a difference when they [anti-missiles] were a thousand kilometers away, and it is different when they are hundreds of kilometres away.” At the weekend it emerged the US had deployed more than 400 anti-missiles targeted on Russia.

|How Amos’ Prophecies Are Springing to Life in Israel Right Now
Posted: 06 Mar 2018 05:31 AM PST
Food, a basic need, holds the essence of who we are as people. Food and drink bring us together, define cultures, engages and inspire us across all spectrums of life. But food indeed goes far beyond our basic needs. It connects us to people, places, experiences and memories and has the power to elevate a mere morsel to a time-honored traditional family dish. Food and wine have always played an important role in the history of mankind; religious elements, celebrations and are even enjoyed for health benefits.
But have you ever thought about the spirituality of food and wine and how they relate to a life of biblical faith? In Christianity, this may be a new thought. In Judaism, there would be no Jewish faith without food and wine, as it plays a central role in the weekly and annual biblical celebrations. Food and wine are spiritual elements first rooted deep in the soil of Israel. From the time of Abraham, food and wine have played an integral role in covenants and Temple offerings. The Bible prophesies about food and wine with the foretaste of what’s to come from Isa. 25:6: “The Lord of hosts will prepare a lavish banquet for all peoples on the mountain; A banquet of aged wine, choice pieces with marrow, and refined, aged wine.” READ MORE
