Christophobia: A Global Perspective

Jack Kerwick, The reality of anti-Christian persecution. Interesting times these are.  While the Pope of my church seems to spare no occasion to castigate Western societies for allegedly not doing enough to welcome and accommodate Islamic refugees from the Middle East, he rarely says anything about the epidemic of anti-Christian persecution around the world. In

49 Years After MLK, Christian Pastors Call For Arms: Guns & Prayer Are Necessary

The Price Of Oil Is Crashing Again, And That Is Very, Very Bad News For The U.S. Economy

Michael Snyder, This wasn’t supposed to happen.  The price of oil was supposed to start going back up, and this would have brought much needed relief to economically-depressed areas of North America that are heavily dependent on the energy industry.  Instead, the price of oil is crashing again, and that is really bad news for
