This letter to President Bush by alleged Evangelical leaders predictably ignores the plight of Christians persecuted throughout the Arab and Islamic world. It unsurprisingly avoids the pro Israel views of Arab Evangelicals such as Walid Shoebat and Joseph Farah.
It also avoids the issue that territorial concessions already made by Israel, under pressure from the oil interest controlled Bush administration, only resulted in Moslems using the forfeited territory to continue the persecution of Arab Christians, the jihad against Israel and The West and created an Iranian-controlled Islamic base in Gaza and by George Bush Sr. in Lebanon.
To Whom It May Concern
Christian Greetings in The Risen Lord.
I am grateful to have been copied this as I am named in it, and therefore I assume I have a right to cordially respond.
While I speak only for myself, it appears that there is a misunderstanding of my position and that of Pastor Philip Powell and of Brother Ed Barclay. I use the term " misunderstanding" intentionally as a matter of Christian grace. If I were to use the term "misrepresentation", that in effect would implicitly convey the charge of deliberate lying, and I hope this is not the case.
|Lydia Playfoot, 16, poses as she leaves the High |
Court of Justice in London on June 22.
LONDON - A teenager whose teachers had stopped her wearing a "purity ring" at school to symbolize her commitment to virginity has lost a High Court fight against the ban.
Lydia Playfoot, 16, says her silver ring is an expression of her faith and had argued in court that it should be exempt from school regulations banning the wearing of jewelry.
"I am very disappointed by the decision this morning by the High Court not to allow me to wear my purity ring to school as an expression of my Christian faith not to have sex outside marriage," Playfoot said in a statement Monday.
"I believe that the judge"s decision will mean that slowly, over time, people such as school governors, employers, political organizations and others will be allowed to stop Christians from publicly expressing and practicing their faith."
Dear Mr Lancaster,
I write you from Australia where I just read a reprinted article from Elim"s DIRECTION magazine last November (2006) republished by permission in a local Christian publication circulated in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.
In the article you challenge the agenda set by the world infiltrating the church under the banner ofÃ‚ "contemporary culture" etc. In your article you warn of the erroneous deceptions of post-modernism (the basis of "The Emergent Church"),Ã‚ the usurping of biblical counseling with pop psychology, and sound-biting as a substitute for biblical exposition.

According to the Daily Telegraph,Ã‚ Sally Hunt, joint general secretary of the lecturers" union, stated: "Delegates have made it clear that they will oppose Government attempts to restrict academic freedom or free speech on campus" . All very noble, to be sure.

As a result, overtly religious symbols of mainstream religions such as Nativity scenes, the Ten Commandments and menorahs have largely been banished from the public square on the grounds that they offend unbelievers.

New gay equality laws which are opposed by the Roman Catholic Church are a "major step forward", the Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly has said.
Peers voted against an amendment to throw out the Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations, brought by Tory peer Baroness O'Cathain.
MORIEL urges prayer that God will act against the now passed Sexual Orientation Regulations of Tony Blair and his government backed by many Conservative members of parliament including the Conservative leader David Cameron. This legislation forces religious institutions to provide services including homosexual and lesbian adoption of children, with steep financial penalties against those responsible for the care of these children and these services.
