Passenger Disrupts Plane When Stewardess Says, "Merry Christmas"

A unnamed passenger was removed from a plane at La Guardia Airport on Tuesday after causing a ruckus, because airline workers said, “Merry Christmas.”
The man was waiting to board American Airlines Flight 1140 to Dallas when a gate agent wished him, “Merry Christmas.” The man snapped at the woman, “You shouldn’t say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas.”
Once on the plane, a stewardess also wished him a “Merry Christmas.” At that point, the man lost it. “Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas!’ ” he screamed at the attendants and pilot.
The crew tried to calm the man, but he continued yelling and causing a ruckus.
He was escorted off the plane as other fliers burst into cheers and applause.

ISLAMISTS: PAY GOLD OR DIE, CHRISTIANS!

ISIS imposes ‘jizya’ tax on non-Muslims, warns resistance will make them ‘legitimate targets’

goldcoins

WASHNGTON – The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, considered to be the most ruthless of the Sunni Islamic militant groups fighting in Syria, has ordered a Christian community in Raqqa, Syria, to pay nearly 38 pounds of gold as a “guarantee of their safety.”

The announcement was posted on an ISIS website.

The requirement is part of the implementation of a form of Islamic law, or Shariah, in areas under ISIS control.

Each ounce would cost, at Feb. 26 rates, about $1,330, making the total needed for the required 600-plus ounces of gold more than $800,000.

Raqqa, or ar-Raqqah, is a city in north central Syria with a population of some 300,000 people, of which less than 1 percent, or 3,000, are Christian. That means each Christian then would be required to come up with more than $260 in gold.

Prior to issuing the demand for the gold, sources say the Christians had met with ISIS fighters who offered three choices: Convert to Islam, accept ISIS conditions or reject their control and possibly be killed.

“If they reject, they are subject to being legitimate targets, and nothing will remain between them and ISIS other than the sword,” a separate ISIS statement said.

Prior to ISIS taking over Raqqa, many Christians fled the city.

In addition to the statement, ISIS also issued a video in Arabic.

In the video, ISIS said it would require the Christian community to pay 17 kilograms of gold as “jizya,” or a tax on non-Muslims, who also “must refrain from any public expression of their religion in exchange for a guarantee of their safety,” according to the English-subtitled video.

“The group made this announcement over the Internet,” the video said, adding that the Christians are prohibited from renovating their churches, ringing church bells and praying in public. The video also said ISIS forbade Christians from possessing weapons and selling pork or alcohol to Muslims.

The city, seized by ISIS last year, was the first provincial capital to fall into the hands of the Islamic militants.

According to al-Monitor, a Washington-based website covering news of the Middle East, the ISIS-controlled city has women lining up for as much as seven hours in front of a bakery for bread.

“A masked gunman organized the line. The bakery used to be for both men and women, but ISIS banned the sexes from mixing and assigned two bakeries for women and one for men from among the government bakeries,” the report said.

Women now are required to wear the hijab, or veil, while standing in line.

In other instances, residents are subject to constant intimidation from ISIS fighters who are forcing inhabitants who own more than one home to turn over the keys of their unused homes.

“Would you allow your jihadist brother to live in the street?” the ISIS fighters ask.

The report said that the ISIS fighters in Raqqa are not engaging in any military action against the regime of Syrian President of Bashar al-Assad. Instead, they occupy the Internet cafes in the city and are engaging other jihadist groups whom ISIS believes are not strict enough under Shariah.

Saudi Grand Mufti: Destroy all Christian churches

A mufti is a jurist who interprets Muslim religious law.
Grand Mufti is the title given to the titular head of the Muslim community. The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia is Sheik Abdul Aziz al ash-Shaikh, 72, the equivalent of the Catholic Church’s pope. He’s been blind since 1960.
The blind Grand Mufti has just declared it necessary to destroy all Christian churches in the Middle East region. In so doing, Sheik Abdul puts the lie to Muslims’ insistence that Islam’s God is the same as the God of Judaism and Christianity, and that Muslims respect Jews and Christians as all “People of the Book.”

Saudi Grand Mufti Sheik Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh


As reported by an editorial in The Washington Times on March 16, 2012:

On March 12, Sheik Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the grand mufti of Saudi Arabia, declared that it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.” The ruling came in response to a query from a Kuwaiti delegation over proposed legislation to prevent construction of churches in the emirate. The mufti based his decision on a story that on his deathbed, Muhammad declared, “There are not to be two religions in the [Arabian] Peninsula.” This passage has long been used to justify intolerance in the kingdom. Churches have always been banned in Saudi Arabia, and until recently Jews were not even allowed in the country. Those wishing to worship in the manner of their choosing must do so hidden away in private, and even then the morality police have been known to show up unexpectedly and halt proceedings.

This is not a small-time radical imam trying to stir up his followers with fiery hate speech. This was a considered, deliberate and specific ruling from one of the most important leaders in the Muslim world. It does not just create a religious obligation for those over whom the mufti has direct authority; it is also a signal to others in the Muslim world that destroying churches is not only permitted but mandatory.

Being not just a mufti but a grand mufti, the sheik’s declaration that it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region,” therefore is a fatwa — a juristic ruling concerning Islamic law.
Not only is the sheik’s declaration unreported by the useless MSM, the fatwa also went without any comment, even less a condemnation, by the Obama administration.
The Washington Times notes:

If the pope called for the destruction of all the mosques in Europe, the uproar would be cataclysmic. Pundits would lambaste the church, the White House would rush out a statement of deep concern, and rioters in the Middle East would kill each other in their grief. But when the most influential leader in the Muslim world issues a fatwa to destroy Christian churches, the silence is deafening. […]

The Obama administration ignores these types of provocations at its peril. The White House has placed international outreach to Muslims at the center of its foreign policy in an effort to promote the image of the United States as an Islam-friendly nation. This cannot come at the expense of standing up for the human rights and religious liberties of minority groups in the Middle East. The region is a crucial crossroads. Islamist radicals are leading the rising political tide against the authoritarian, secularist old order. They are testing the waters in their relationship with the outside world, looking for signals of how far they can go in imposing their radical vision of a Shariah-based theocracy. Ignoring provocative statements like the mufti’s sends a signal to these groups that they can engage in the same sort of bigotry and anti-Christian violence with no consequences.

Mr. Obama’s outreach campaign to the Muslim world has failed to generate the good will that he expected. In part, this was because he felt it was better to pander to prejudice than to command respect. When members of the Islamic establishment call for the religious equivalent of ethnic cleansing, the leader of the free world must respond or risk legitimizing the oppression that follows. The United States should not bow to the extremist dictates of the grand mufti, no matter how desperate the White House is for him to like us.

Alas, The Washington Times’ counsel that Obama should condemn what the Saudi Grand Mufti said will fall on deaf ears. Have we already forgotten this famous bow to the Saudi king in 2009?

Thankfully, since Islam is not (yet) a unified political religion, but is divided at least into the Sunni and Shia sects, dissenting Muslim voices are already criticizing the Grand Mufti’s call to “destroy all the churches” in the Gulf region.
Turkey’s top imam, Mehmet Görmez, said he cannot accept the Grand Mufti’s fatwa because it runs contrary to the centuries-old Islamic teachings of tolerance and the sanctity of institutions belonging to other religions.

Islamic True-Believers Blow Up Nigerian Christians on Christmas Day

Via bloomberg.com:
The Obama administration promised to help Nigeria find the people responsible for a wave of Christmas Day bombings that killed dozens in the oil-rich African nation.
“We have been in contact with Nigerian officials about what appear to be terrorist acts and pledge to assist them in bringing those responsible to justice,” according to a statement by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.
Boko Haram, a Muslim sect, reportedly claimed responsibility for the attacks — two of which targeted churches. A year ago, the group said it was behind holiday bombings that killed more than 90.
The first explosion occurred as services were ending at St. Theresa’s Church near the capital, Abjua. Yemi Ajayi, a police spokesman, said at least 20 people were killed.
Another blast, at a church in the central city of Jos, capital of Plateau state, killed a policeman, said Pam Ayuba, a spokesman for the state government.
A suspected suicide-bomber rammed a car into the entrance of the State Security Service building in the northeastern city of Damaturu, killing four people and the bomber, Victor Ebhaleme, a spokesman for the military task force in charge of security in the region, said by phone from Maiduguri.
You will find the full article here.
And I am just sure a spokes-mouth for CAIR is going to step up to a microphone and condemn these heinous acts any minute now.
Right, and any minute now the doorbell will ring, and when I open the front door a suitcase full of money is going to be awaiting me.

A Glorious Christmas Flashmob

Let the PC Grinch try stopping believers from proclaiming His birth and His name!
I started tearing up when the flash mob began singing “O Holy Night,” then really lost it at the 4:25 mark….
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vnt7euRF5Pg&feature=player_embedded]
This Christmas flash mob took place at the South Bay Galleria in Redondo Beach, CA, on December 18, 2010. The singers are members of the Journey of Faith.
Journey of Faith began in 1911 as a traveling school bus, offering Sunday school classes to the children in the Hermosa Beach area – where open fields and goats grazing were the norm. By 1957, the congregation had become so big that a 4-mile property in Manhattan Beach was purchased, which became the first Journey of Faith church.
Since then, two additional worship centers were built, as well as an E-Building in 1999 to house a preschool program for Journey School and adult Bible classes and events. In 2009, a new 18,000 square foot educational building – The Harbor – was added; as well as Journey’s first satellite site in Bellflower.
Today, Journey of Faith numbers 2,000 worshipers “serving the body of Christ for his Kingdom.”
This is Journey’s Mission Statement:

As a community of worshipers we have been sent into the world to Make Mature and Mobilize Disciples who love the Lord our God above all else and who touch others with the reality of Jesus Christ.

God bless the good people of Journey of Faith!

UN is a Hotbed of New Age Occult


What is wrong with this picture?
Despite what Obama and the Left proclaim, the United States remains a Christian nation. Some 76% of Americans still call ourselves Christians. Non-Christian religions (including Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism), collectively make up only 3.9% to 5.5% of the adult population. Not only is America still mainly Christian, a majority of Americans say that religion plays a “very important” role in their lives, a proportion that Wikipedia notes as being “unusual among developed nations.”
U.S. taxpayers are the largest financial supporter of the United Nations, to the tune of more than $6.347 billion in FY 2009. (For details about America’s UN financial contributions, scroll to the end of this post.) America also hosts the UN Headquarters in New York city.
But in the name of universal brotherhood and Gaia environmentalism, the UN is actively promoting a new paganism that is a hodge podge of New Agism, Eastern mysticism, and covert Satanism.
Before you roll your eyes and hum the Twilight Zone’s “ding ding ding ding” tune, read the evidence I’ll present to you and then tell me what you think.
The first piece of evidence is below. I will publish the other pieces as separate posts over the course of the next few days.

UN’s Spiritual Advisor Sri Chinmoy

People’s Exhibit No. 1: The Guru

 
For 23 years, the United Nations had a self-proclaimed Hindu mystic named Sri Chinmoy as its own in-house “spiritual advisor” — guru. Chinmoy would offer prayer and meditation meetings for anyone to attend every Tuesday and Friday in the UN’s Meditation Room. (The room will be People’s Exhibit No. 2 — the subject of tomorrow’s post.)
In his book Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, longtime UN Under Secretary General Robert Muller exulted that “We have…a UN Meditation Group led by an Indian Mystic. One could tell several moving stories of the spiritual transformation the UN has caused, to the point that this little speck on earth is becoming a holy ground.” (quoted in Gary Kah’s The New World Religion, p. 310)
Chinmoy claimed to have been Thomas Jefferson in a previous life, as well as the Spiritual Brother (whatever that means) to Jesus Christ. Chinmoy’s disciples claim him as one of a handful of fully enlightened beings on the planet. Some disciples go so far as to claim he is an avatar, a living God. They meditate to a print of his face.
According to Wikipedia, Sri Chinmoy’s real name is Chinmoy Kumar Ghose. Born in 1931 (d. 2007), he was a Hindu spiritual teacher and philosopher who immigrated from his native India to the U.S. in 1964 and later “gave talks at the United Nations.”
Chinmoy claimed to have once lifted over 7,000 pounds with one arm. But in 1989, his official photographer Alex Zwarenstein revealed that Chinmoy had asked him to airbrush photographs to exaggerate his weightlifting ability. He also was publicly accused of sexual misconduct by Anne Carlton and two other former disciples. Carlton told the New York Post that Chinmoy summoned her for sexual encounters over two extended periods, in 1991 and 1996. Other women have also recounted similar stories, and one even revealed that Chinmoy had paid for her abortion after getting her pregnant in the early 1980s. However, the great spiritual teacher said the sexual allegations were false, insisting he was a life-long celibate.
Musician Carlos Santana was once a follower who had spoken glowingly of his guru. When the two parted ways, Santana told Rolling Stone magazine that Chinmoy became “vindictive” and “told all my friends not to call me ever again, because I was to drown in a dark sea of ignorance for leaving him”.
Indeed, the website Sri Chinmoy.TV continues to trumpet that “An honor bestowed on Chinmoy is that he is Spiritual Advisor to the United Nations.” The website also has this “brief history” of the great one:

Sri Chinmoy was orphaned at the age of 12. At that time he entered Aurobindo Ashram, a spiritual community in South India. As a child Chinmoy had profound mystical experiences….. He resided at the ashram for 20 years practicing meditation and spiritual discipline. There he attained the level of Nirvikalpa Samadhi which is “the highest mystical state compatible with functioning in the physical world”…. In 1964 he received a call from God that took him to New York [and to the UN]. Three years after his arrival he founded the first Sri Chinmoy Centre. Today there are Sri Chinmoy Centres in 50 different countries the purpose of which are to provide a place to hold meditation classes and athletic events…. For the past 30 years Sri Chinmoy has resided in…New York promoting world peace and helping people search for inner truth.

The website also says that Chinmoy “has devout followers which he calls his children.”

Brett Schaefer of the Heritage Foundation reports: “The source and amounts of all U.S. funding to the myriad number of organizations affiliated with the United Nations are difficult to track accurately. This difficulty prompted Congress to pass legislation requiring the Administration to report annually on U.S. contributions to the U.N. A recent report to Congress by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on all U.S. funding to the U.N. system revealed that U.S. contributions to the U.N. system reached record levels in fiscal year (FY) 2009…. The U.S. has been the largest financial supporter of the U.N. since the organization’s founding in 1945. The U.S. is currently assessed 22% of the U.N. regular budget and more than 27% of the U.N. peacekeeping budget. In dollar terms, the Administration’s budget for FY 2011 requested $516.3 million for the U.N. regular budget and more than $2.182 billion for the peacekeeping budget. However, the U.S. also provides assessed financial contributions to other U.N. organizations and voluntary contributions to many more U.N. organizations. According to OMB, total U.S. contributions to the U.N. system were more than $6.347 billion in FY 2009. This is more than $1 billion more than total contributions as compiled by OMB for FY 2005, and it is indicative of the rising budgetary trends in the U.N. and the consequential demand on U.S. financial support.”

Christians Regret Voting for Obama

Among the millions of Americans with buyer’s remorse are Christians.
Frankly, I don’t even understand why so many Christians had voted for him in 2008. I’m one of many Christians who were not fooled. How did I know? I looked into these eyes:


H/t my friend Sol.
~Eowyn
Excerpts from Michael Gerson, “Believers’ Remorse,” Jewish World Review, Oct. 5, 2010:
As a candidate, it was a measure of Barack Obama’s political innovation and ambition that he set out to win religious voters, including evangelical Christians. As president, his failure in this effort is equally revealing.
During the campaign, Obama’s brand of progressivism was refreshingly free of secularism. He combined a conciliatory message — that believers do not need to “leave their religion at the door before entering into the public square” — with persistent outreach to religious leaders. He affirmed the importance of faith-based organizations in the provision of social services, pledging they would “be central to our White House mission.” And he made his convictions clear: “I am a Christian, and I am a devout Christian,” he told Christianity Today in 2008. “I believe in the redemptive death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
The ground was fertile for political sowing. Many evangelicals were weary of being associated with the harsh tone of the religious right; they were increasingly concerned with ideologically unpredictable issues such as global AIDS; and their ties to the Republican Party were somewhat strained.
On Election Day, Obama’s gains among religious voters were modest but measurable. He improved on John Kerry’s 2004 performance among Protestant, Catholic and Jewish voters. John McCain’s support among white evangelicals remained high — 73% — but still six points below George W. Bush’s results in the previous election.
It was a beginning — that quickly ended. Growing percentages of Americans have described the Democratic Party as “unfriendly” toward religion. Obama has lost ground with religious Americans across the board, with Mormons and Protestants the most disillusioned. A recent Pew Research poll found that 42% of white evangelicals say they don’t know what religion Obama practices. Evangelicals were a heavy presence at the Glenn Beck rally on the National Mall, and a new study by the Public Religion Research Institute has found a large conservative Christian presence in the Tea Party ranks.
There are a number of reasons for the believers’ remorse. Social issues blurred during a campaign naturally become more vivid and divisive in the process of governing. Obama’s campaign appeal to reconciliation — which impressed many religious voters — has dissolved into prickly partisanship.
But the failure of Obama’s religious appeal is also ideological. It is true that evangelicals are generally not libertarian. They admit a place for government in encouraging values and caring for the needy. Yet they do not believe that governmental elites share their values or have their best interests at heart. Among conservative Christians, government is often viewed as a force of secularization — a source of both bureaucratic regulation and moral deregulation. By identifying with expanded government, Obama fed long-standing evangelical fears of the aggressive, secular state…. 
But many religious conservatives and libertarians are now bound in their resistance to Obama’s ideological overreach. Instead of breaking off a piece of the religious vote for his party, Obama has sent a portion into the Tea Party’s embrace.
