FBI should account for agency’s attack on religious freedom. The Washington Times’ editorial board argues this week that the FBI shouldn’t be allowed to get away with its internal memo suggesting Roman Catholics who attend the traditional Latin Mass are “‘potential threats to the nation’s domestic tranquility.”
Our editorial states: “Allowing the FBI to slide away on this would be a mistake. At a minimum, the bureau should have to identify who wrote and who saw the memo. It seems reasonable to ask who at the FBI is willing to undermine freedom of religion and characterize an entire group of citizens as potential terrorists just because they have a solid preference for some old-time religion.”
Is history repeating itself? Columnist Everett Piper reports the United Nations Human Rights Council has Christianity in its sights as a “threat to human life and prosperity.”
“In case you missed the obvious, what the smart people at the pinnacles of power are saying is this: If you are a practicing Christian who believes what the Bible says, you are bad — very, very bad — and you represent one of the greatest threats to the international community’s hellbent determination to dumb down the definition of human identity to nothing more than the sum total of human inclinations and desires.”
Those who dismiss this as “adolescent ramblings” should take note, he said.
“I close with these words from Martyn Iles: ‘We’re living in a clown world. In Ancient Rome, the authorities blamed Christianity for the evils of their day because they either hated it or were totally ignorant concerning it. I guess history can repeat [itself].’”
Reasons parents should be very afraid about their kids’ tech. Columnist Billy Hallowell details four data points that should raise the hair on every parent’s head.
Statistics show most kids have seen pornographic images by the time they’re 13, he notes, and that has led to a rising acceptance of porn. In turn, teens and young adults feel more emotionally disconnected than other generations, and “Generation Z” members are extremely confused about morals and values.
“Parents today must jump into action to protect, guide, and go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure they correctly understand the information children are encountering.”
