ESPN Abruptly Cuts Out When College Football Coach Mentions God

The story is here.

I don’t know if this was just a mistake or an attack on people of faith. I do know most in the  media don’t have faith in God so I have my doubts. You decide what you believe. 


Bishop of Stockholm has proposed a church in her diocese remove all signs of the cross and put down markings showing the direction to Mecca for the benefit of Muslim worshippers.
Eva Brunne, who was made the world’s first openly lesbian bishop by the church of Sweden in 2009, and has a young son with her wife and fellow lesbian priest Gunilla Linden, made the suggestion to make those of other faiths more welcome.
The church targeted is the Seamen’s mission church in Stockholm’s eastern dockyards. The Bishop held a meeting there this year and challenged the priest to explain what he’d do if a ship’s crew came into port who weren’t Christian but wanted to pray.
Calling Muslim guests to the church “angels“, the Bishop later took to her official blog to explain that removing Christian symbols from the church and preparing the building for Muslim prayer doesn’t make a priest any less a defender of the faith. Rather, to do any less would make one “stingy towards people of other faiths”.
The bishop insisted this wasn’t an issue, after all airports and hospitals already had multi-faith prayer rooms, and converting the dockyard church would only bring it up to speed. Regardless, the announcement has aroused protest.

( Billy’s thoughts – So let me get this right a so called Christian spiritual leader is calling for the Cross to be removed from churches and for space for followers of Islam to pray in Christian churches. We should welcome people of the Islam faith who come to our churches to hear about the true God but we should only pray to the true God in our churches and his name is Jesus. This once again proves when a church forsakes the Bible in one way soon it will forsake the Bible in other ways. Read the rest of the above story here. )

From Antichrist to Brother in Christ: How Protestant Pastors View the Pope

More than half of evangelical pastors say Pope Francis is their brother in Christ.More than one-third say they value the pope’s view on theology, and 3 in 10 say he has improved their view of the Catholic Church.

Those are among the findings of a new study of 1,000 Protestant senior pastors, released this week from Nashville-based LifeWay Research.

Overall, the survey found that many Protestant pastors have taken a liking to Pope Francis.

Nearly 4 in 10 say the pope, known for his humility and concern for the poor, has had a positive impact on their opinions of the Catholic Church. Almost two-thirds view Pope Francis as a genuine Christian and “brother in Christ.”

However, half of Protestant pastors say they do not value Pope Francis’ opinion on matters of theology.

( Billy’s thoughts – The key is not what the Pope thinks but the key is what Jesus thinks and what the Bible teaches. I do struggle when the Pope has said good works can get you to heaven and when he made the statement a relationship with God is dangerous apart from the Roman Catholic Church. Salvation doesn’t come through a church but through Jesus. There are people in the Catholic and other churches who truly know the Lord and sadly there are lost souls in all churches.

Secret meeting between Pope Francis, Kim Davis

The clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples met privately with Pope Francis last week. The meeting was confirmed by the Vatican on Wednesday morning, according to The New York Times. 

( Meeting with the Pope )
The  legal team for Kim Davis says that the woman who spent time behind bars for her beliefs met with the pontiff during his historic trip to the United States. 
Davis spent nearly a week in jail earlier this month after she refused a judge’s order to issue marriage licenses in Rowan County.
Davis and her husband, Joe, were reportedly snuck into the Vatican Embassy in Washington, D.C., by car last Thursday. The couple met with the pope for about 15 minutes. Francis reportedly gave Davis two rosaries and told her to “stay strong.” The two also hugged. 
( Billy’s thoughts – I have posted before I agree with Davis same sex marriage is wrong but she could have made her point by quitting her job. Like it or not same sex marriage is the law of the land. What she and those of us who love the Lord and his word need to do is show others Christ along with their need for him. The key is sharing the good news not demanding some kind of rights. )

Did the Pope heal a sick kid in America ?

A Phoenix family says one interaction with Pope Francis may have changed their lives.
“The Pope healed our baby’s heart,” claims Lynn Cassidy, who has no other explanation as to how the condition of her then 3-month-old daughter, Ave, improved shortly after meeting the Pope. She added that the incident is “as close to a miracle as we’ll ever see, I’m sure.”


Ave, who was born with a slew of problems like Down syndrome, eye problems and hearing complications, also had two holes in her heart – the most concerning of all her medical issues.


In Easter of 2014, the family planned a Rome trip to see Francis in person during the canonization of John Paul II and John XXIII, during which time they had a chance to meet him.

The Pope is sounding like a liberal and MNBC host 

Pope Francis is unquestionably a man of ­uncommon personal grace, the possessor of a genuinely beautiful soul. “On Heaven and Earth,” his book-length exchange with Rabbi Abraham Skorka first published in 2010, is a remarkable testament to the breadth of his perspective.But that’s not exactly the guy who showed up Friday at the United Nations. That pope endorsed the Iran deal, the UN’s environmentalist goals and what amounts to a worldwide open-borders policy on refugees — and ­offered a very specific view of how to promote development in the Third World that’s straight out of a left-wing textbook.

( Pope Francis is just another liberal political pundit )
