Active Christians in America number about 43 million people, or 19% of the population, according to a CTI and R.R. Bowker study.
“Active Christians” are those most likely to read the Bible in their spare time, be committed churchgoers, accept leadership positions in the church, and feel obligated to share their faith.
They account for 57% of all Christian retail sales.
U.S. District Judge Julian Abele Cook, Jr. has accepted the suit from a self-described homosexual man from Michigan seeking $70 million from two Christian publishers for emotional distress and mental instability during the past 20 years from Bibles that identify homosexual behavior as sin and evil.
Bradley LaShawn Fowler, a self-described homosexual, is representing himself. He claims the two publishers, Zondervan and Thomas Nelson, are misrepresenting the Bible.
In a public statement, Zondervan said, “We only publish credible translations produced by credible Biblical scholars. We rely on the scholarly judgment of the highly respected and credible translation committees behind each translation and never alter the text of the translations...
A survey recently released by the Pre Forum on Religion & Public Life says that 70% of American adults affiliated with a religion (including 66% of Protestants and a whopping 79% of Catholics) believe that “many religions can lead to eternal life.”
That’s not what Jesus says!
In John 14:6, Jesus tells His disciples, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Protestant and Catholic leaders better start teaching the real Gospel of Jesus Christ to their people. Apparently, only 34% of Protestants and only 21% of Catholics (!!!) believe the fact that Jesus Christ teaches us that He is the only way to God and eternal life in Heaven.

A recent conviction of X-rated pornographers in Pensacola and Pace, Florida proves once again that local communities can stop pornography if they put their minds to it.
“Local obscenity trials of X-rated photography, videos and movies almost always result in a conviction,” MOVIEGUIDE® Publisher Dr. Ted Baehr, who has a law degree from the prestigious New York University School of Law, said. “Most citizen juries will convict the perpetrators, because they want to protect their children and grandchildren.
“Your local community can stop pornography in its tracks!”
Facing a three-week obscenity trial forced the four key players in the case to all plead guilty.
“We have this problem statewide,” Assistant State Attorney Russ Edg...

“He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
-- John 3:18 (King James Version)
In what may be one of the most unusual analogies ever presented for government policy, Richard Danzig, a Barack Obama advisor, told us all that we could learn a lot from Luke Skywalker. He said that understanding that we all want to be superheroes like Luke Skywalker can help us understand the motivation of terrorists. If you don’t understand that either, don’t feel bad. He also cited the children’s book series, Winnie the Pooh, stating that it is a “fundamental text on national security.”
Props and costumes from two movies of famed actor Charlton Heston go up for auction. A pair of the fake granite tablets from the 1966 epic, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, is expected to bring in as much as $60,000. And, the costume that Heston wore in BEN-HUR is also among the collection of memorabilia to be sold. This costume is the one that Heston wore when his character Judah Ben-Hur hears a sermon from Jesus. These items can remind us of not only the legacy of a good man like Charlton Heston, but also remind us that these movies filled with biblical truth continue to hold value.
What do you do if you’re Michael Moore and your last movie, SICKO, bombed at the box office? You make a sequel to the movie that earned you enough money to eat at fast food restaurants with George Clooney.
In announcing the sequel to FAHRENHEIT 9/11 (“Fahrenheit 9/12?”) Moore says that it’s not really a sequel. It’s just a movie about what a bad country America has become. Seems like that was the first movie’s message as well.
