A Major Christian Charity Lifts Its Same-Sex Marriage Ban for Employees

United States Dollars
WEB Notes: There is a huge push today to bring homosexuality into Christianity. It already exists in most places and online it seems to be a foregone conclusion. The thought is, show your love to those as Christ would. Christians and non-Christians a like use the “love” card when it fits their agenda. But we need to remember to rightly divide the Word of God. Homosexuality is a sin period. In the OT and NT.
(Source: Yahoo) – World Vision, one of America’s largest Christian charities, just made a small but important tweak to its employee handbook: it changed its definition of marriage. Like many religious non-profits, World Vision U.S. can privilege people with certain beliefs in their hiring practices. Until recently, one of those conditions of employment prohibited employees from engaging in sexual activity outside of a heterosexual marriage. Now, the charity’s definition of marriage includes same-sex couples too. World Vision U.S.’s president Richard Stearns told Christianity Today that his charity hopes the change (which still prohibits sex outside of marriage) will become “symbolic not of compromise but of [Christian] unity.”

China Affirms Yellen’s “Six Month” Guidance, Says Not To Expect Any “Big Stimulus” Out Of Beijing

(Source: ZeroHedge) – Apparently China did not get the memo that the Fed’s apologists are furiously scrambling to packpedal on Yellen’s “6 month” guidance in virtually all media outlets. The is the only way to explain why Vice Minister of Finance Zhu Guangyao said overnight that “the U.S. Federal Reserve will begin boosting interest rates within six months after exiting “unconventional” monetary policy, and that will have a “significant impact” on the U.S. and world economy, as Market News International reported earlier. Zhu told China Development Forum this weekend “we believe a the Fed meeting this October, the exit of their quantiative easing will complete.” In other words while the spin for public and algo consumption is that the Fed will continue placating those long the stock market until everyone’s price target on the S&P 500 is hit and everyone can comfortably sell into an ever-present bid, China is already looking for the exits.

Apple Heath

(Source: Natural Society) – Tamarind, or Tamarindus indica L., is a sub tropical and tropical fruit-producing tree indigenous to tropical Africa.

Boy-On-Boy Third Grade Sexual Assault Case Rocks California Elementary School

Happy children playing on grass

WEB Notes: Sex is everywhere and on most websites today we are bombarded with ads of sexual nature. It has become so ingrained into our culture while God has been removed from it. When we remove our Father from our life, this is what happens. We become lost Godless people.

(Video, Source: Freedom Outpost) – In Riverside, California, the worst possible horror has come to pass. A confirmed boy-on-boy third grade sexual assault incident has occurred, and two teachers have been placed on leave for the atrocity. How could this have happened? Two boys, barely nine years old involved in a sexual assault case is a nightmare scenario, but more than this, it is indicative of cultural depravity that cannot be adequately put into words. To begin to fathom such acts is to come to the realization that American culture is not just in a free fall, but experiencing complete death. Sex at this age is taboo, but sexual assault is unthinkable. But boy-on-boy, third grade sexual assault, with one student abusing another is uncharted territory. The rotten fruit of the progressive agenda has come to fruition in Riverside, California

Chorus of Israeli voices renews calls for Iran strike

Israeli F15 Fighters

WEB Notes: Pay very close attention to world events. We see Russia making moves and now renewed calls for an attack on Iran by Israel. Read Daniel 8.

(Source: Times of Israel) – A rising chorus of Israeli voices is again raising the possibility of carrying out a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities in what appears to be an attempt to draw renewed attention to Tehran’s atomic program — and Israel’s unhappiness with international negotiations with the Iranians.

In recent days, a series of newspaper reports and comments by top defense officials have signaled that the military option remains very much on the table. While Israeli officials say Israel never shelved the possibility of attacking, the heightened rhetoric marks a departure from Israel’s subdued approach since six world powers opened negotiations with Iran last November.

Why Hobby Lobby Is This Year’s Supreme Court Case To Watch

One Nation Under God Children Praying
WEB Notes: Read Hobby Lobby CEO David Green’s letter about their store and what this mandate might mean for their business.
(Source: Christianity Today) – When Hobby Lobby makes its case in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday, conservative Christians won’t be the only ones paying attention.
After a year and a half of opposing the Affordable Care Act’s birth control mandate, the evangelical-owned craft store chain has become shorthand for the corporate fight for religious liberty—one that concerns not only Obamacare critics, or fellow Christians who worry that certain contraception methods are abortifacients, but now, Americans overall.
