    Nazi Holocaust: Incomparable to Muhammad’s Plan for Jews

    Commemorating the anniversary of Auschwitz’s liberation is important. But remembering without action is irrelevant. The reality is that in America more hate crimes are committed against Jews than all other groups combined, according to a recently released FBI report. Internationally, eradicating Jews and Israel is integral to Islam. Muslims believe, according to the Qur’an that worldwide Islamic rule will only occur once Israel is destroyed | Read More »

    A Tale of Two City Protests: Sharia in Dallas vs. Christian Prayer in Baton Rouge

    On January 17th Sound Vision Foundation, a Chicago-based 501 (C) 3 organization held a “Stand with the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas, a suburb outside of Dallas, at the Curtis Culwell Center on Independent School District property. The event, permitted by the Superintendent of Public Schools, launched a Strategic Communication Center for Muslims to advocate censoring and criminalizing non-Muslim speech. Sound Vision asks: “Frustrated with | Read More »

    Christian Ministers Leading from the Front: In and Out of the Pulpit

    Ministers have always been at the forefront of leading America, calling upon God for mercy, guidance, wisdom, and revival. Historically, they led both in and out of the pulpit—spawning the American Revolution, opposing slavery and organizing the Underground Railroad, actively registering people to vote, supporting civil rights, prison reform, and poverty legislation, and fighting in war and/or serving as military chaplains. Because every area of | Read More »

    As Christianity exits Europe, ‘Criminal Muslims’ fill void with rabid violence

    History provides ample evidence of ways in which the local church provides continuity, encouragement and support of family life and societal freedoms. It also reveals what happens when churches close: societal structures erode, crime escalates, and freedoms evaporate. Throughout Europe, tens of thousands of churches have been torn down, sold and repurposed due to an 80-90 percent drop in attendance. Non-attendance is indicative of negative population growth and sub-replacement fertility | Read More »

    “Criminal Muslim” Ideology is Freedomphobic, Christianphobic, and Anti-Semitic

    Westerners must identify Islamic threats to their existence if not for the only reason that they themselves and their way of life are identified as the primary threat to Sharia. Muslims worldwide identify their problem: Kūffar, the non-believer, those who reject Allah, or are otherwise known as “infidel.” I am Kāfir. I reject Islam as a religion and as anything remotely close to a peaceful | Read More »

    “Moderate Muslims” Are Irrelevant to America and the World

    Many argue terrorist attacks are committed by extremists. However, as I have repeatedly argued a small minority has always been responsible for implementing violent ideology to overtake the “peaceful” and “moderate” majority. Consider this: of the 1.2 billion Muslims worldwide, national security organizations estimate “radical Muslims” account for 15-25 percent. That equates to approximately 180-300 million “Radical Muslims,” nearly the entire population of the United | Read More »

    Al Sharpton Is As Much a Reverend As I Am a Black Man

    In America many people claim to be something they are not and get away with it, which explains why Al Sharpton continues to use the title Reverend. However, he is as much a reverend as I am a black man. By age ten Sharpton was “ordained” by Pentecostal minister Bishop F.D. Washington—a man with no training or education. Regardless of education, no one in his | Read More »

    British Christianity: “Denial and Inertia” No Match for “Resolute Wickedness”

    Gov. Mike Huckabee recently retraced the steps of Pope John Paul II, Margaret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan with a group of ministers and faith leaders. After touring Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and the Churchill War Rooms, he remarked that both Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill were heavily criticized and often dismissed yet they remained steadfast to name and fight evil. “During two periods of massive global | Read More »

    Britain Hasn’t Been Invaded Since 1066, Until Now, Its Response: Same as in 1935

    As an American Anglophile who lived in London in 1995 and in Edinburgh ten years later, I was greatly dismayed to witness how much the U.K. has changed for the worse during my recent trip to London shortly after Remembrance Day. The highlight of my trip was to see the 888, 246 poppies and pay tribute to those who died in Afghanistan and Iraq, whose | Read More »

    Pope John Paul II, One of the Greatest Political Leaders, Sparked Movement of Liberation in Poland, Eastern Europe, Defying Communism

    Those on Gov. Mike Huckabee’s Journey first arrived in Kraków, Poland, home of Pope John Paul II, to learn how its most influential agent for political change during pre and post Nazi and Communist occupied Poland, was its religious leader. To the Polish people, their Pope, Karol Józef Woityla, is the most significant man in modern history who led them to freedom after suffering generations | Read More »
