Another Christian victory!

This time, a televangelist has bilked his followers out of millions of dollars so he can ride in his luxury jet and claim victory over gravity!

Gravity's powers have fallen in the face of the power of prayer, God and tax free donations!

Hallelujah!

‘Word from the Lord’: Televangelist’s ministry buys Tyler Perry’s Gulfstream jet

“Brother Copeland said he received a word from the Lord to purchase a different and larger airplane — one with more seating capacity and larger fuel volume. So, the Lord has shifted our priority to a Gulfstream, which is a larger airplane.”

People were praying to Turkey and they answered those prayers?
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration imposed sanctions on Wednesday against two top Turkish government officials over the detention of an American pastor being held on espionage charges, threatening to plunge already-fraught relations with a vital NATO ally into crisis.
The move was an extraordinary use of financial sanctions against an allied government. It is sure to inflame tensions that were already simmering over a litany of disagreements, including Washington’s refusal to extradite a cleric suspected of leading a failed 2016 coup against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and his country’s growing use of what many Western analysts have described as hostage diplomacy.U.S. Imposes Sanctions on Turkish Officials Over Detained American Pastor So you don't read the news and fail miserably as a funny guy

Atlanta Mayor says court battle with former fire chief was too costly

Biggest victory of the year. The court found there was no reason for the city of Atlanta to fire Fire Chief Cochran for his book he wrote on his personal time. The city of Atlanta paid Cochran $1.2 Million in a settlement noting the cost could go much higher costing the taxpayers even more.
What’s the moral of this story? Don’t fire Christians for their beliefs when they don’t line up with Liberal ideology. There is the Constitution that protects us from radical thinking.

This 'hate group' keeps winning First Amendment cases

This is yet another win in a long line of wins for Alliance Defending Freedom, the legal powerhouse with a Christian base that is to constitutional law what Justice Antonin Scalia was to originalism, or what Jay-Z is to rap, or Tom Brady is to football, or — you get the idea. In the last seven years, Alliance Defending Freedom has won all nine cases at the Supreme Court. For this stellar record, the organization has received its share of praise and vitriol.

After their win in Masterpiece, organizations like the ACLU and the Southern Poverty Law Center doubled down in their efforts to label them a “hate group,” citing their “extreme” views on same-sex marriage, free speech, and religious liberty. Since when did protecting another group’s First Amendment rights become hateful or an act of hate speech? Not only is this illogical, but, coming from a legal organization, this is also a demonstration of their own liberal bias.
This 'hate group' keeps winning First Amendment cases In a way the title of this post is sarcastic, but in a way mocking the way some have thought of Christians in a number of cases they are recently winning due to extremist thinking treating them like a hate group. This kind of thinking has not gone well for the haters of Christians as Alliance Defending Freedom has represented people like Kelvin Cochran and Jack Phillips that won their cases. There has been nine big wins with Alliance Defending Freedom for religious rights. Victory for sure

2 more Christians win cases in Europe due to Freedom of Conscience.
EUROPE (BP) -- Freedom of conscience won against charges of discrimination in two European high courts yesterday and today (Oct. 10 and 11), affirming the rights of a pro-life physician and a baker opposed to gay marriage.


The latest case today set a Norwegian legal precedent on freedom of conscientious objection in the medical profession, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) International said. The high court in Oslo, Norway affirmed the right of Christian physician Katarzyna Jackimowicz to refuse to implant in a patient an intrauterine birth control device (IUD) because of its abortifacient capabilities.



Yesterday in London, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom affirmed the right of Christian bakers Amy and Daniel McArthur to refuse to bake a cake with depictions of the Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie with the slogan "Support Gay Marriage."

Jachimowicz, fired from a Sauherad general practitioner clinic in 2015 for refusing to implant an IUD, filed suit the following June, citing her Christianity as a defense. The case was the first legal hearing testing conscientious objection in Norway, according to the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC).


Jachimowicz won her case as early as November 2017 in the Appeal Court of Norway, prevailing in the Supreme Court when the clinic appealed. The ruling is a significant victory not only for doctors, "but for people of faith in all professions," her attorney Hakon Bleken said today in an ADF International press release.



"The ruling protects one of the most fundamental rights, the right to act in accordance with one's deeply held beliefs. Dr. Jachimowicz takes her vocation as a medical professional seriously," Bleken said. "She vowed to protect life, and objected to having any part in taking it. The Court established today that she had every right to do so."



Robert Clarke, director of European advocacy for ADF International, said the ruling is significant for all of Europe.Freedom of conscience wins in 2 European high courts
