A national carbon tax will devastate the poor…

“But the CBO notes that even the comparatively modest carbon tax it envisioned would likely have some deleterious effects on economic output, and employment and corporate profits, which is to say all the other stuff we’re already taxing to fund the spending we’re already doing:” click here

Media conspire to smear President Trump; He must be doing something right!

“While the media have undoubtedly been coordinating against Trump ever since he announced his candidacy (after all, there is a reason every news outlet reports on the exact same stories using the exact same left-wing narrative), this is the first time I am aware of where the media have openly and proudly coordinated to attack Trump.” click here

Twitter continues double-speak; disingenuous censorship

Christianophobia in Lancashire, England

There are those who hate Christianity and call their hatred all-embracing love for all religions. G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)

Christianophobia = an irrational animosity towards or hatred of Christians, or Christianity in general. (McMillan Dictionary)

Many Christians believe they have experienced animosity or discrimination because of their faith. Not all Christians are equally likely to be victimized by Christianophobia, but certain kinds of Christians (e.g. here), are much more likely to be attacked, even by political groups who identify themselves as “christian.” 

Research on Christianophobia has found patterns of bigotry, hatred, prejudice, stereotyping and dehumanization…..Here, Christianophobia is apparently driving opposition and personal attacks toward Mr. Graham.

Instead of being opposed, the Lancashire Festival of Hope deserves full support for the positive impact the event will have on this community.
