New European Union School Calendar Omits Christian Holidays
A calendar for 2011-2012 published by The European Union has conspicuously left out any mention of Christian holidays. Three million copies have already been printed and will be available for free to European students. There has been quite a stir caused by this ommision, especially since Jewish and Muslim holidays are included in the calendar. Christianity has been on the path of being wiped out in Europe for some time now, but something so blatant as ignoring the presence of Christian holidays altogether, still rattles the Christians of Europe.
The Christian Democratic Party in France has started a petition to stop to the distribution of this calendar as it is printed, and they would like to see the EU offer a calendar that includes Christian holidays.
“The role of the Christian religion in the shaping of Europe is an undeniable historical fact” that the European Union cannot omit. To do so would be to “instruct students while denying that a particular religion has greatly contributed to the foundation and unity of Europe,” the organization said. source: CNA
The European Union seems determined to completely wipe out any connection to its Christians roots, but has no issue with honoring Judaism and Islam in the instance of this calendar. Unfortunately, America may very well be headed down the same path as the EU.
The name of Jesus Christ is being attacked so flagrantly, and in so many ways across the world, that it can make one’s head spin. This is nothing new, but it does seem more and more common for Christians to be trampled on with little regard. Christians should remember that name of Jesus will continue to be hated, but that there is no name more precious and highly exalted under heaven. We must hold on dearly to Jesus’ name no matter how much we are despised.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; Phil 2:9,10
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

“The old Manny Pacquiao is dead and the new one has come.” These are the very words of the boxing champ himself found quoted and featured in the main page of his official website. The world’s boxing champion seems to have encountered God’s Truth in the Bible that has drastically and radically changed his life for the glory of God! His official website does not only showcase his work as a boxer and a Philippine Congressman, but has now recently showcased the champ’s new found life in Christ. The website is just plastered with Bible verses and videos of him preaching about the importance of being born again and the value of truly reading the Bible–the Word of God.

British archaeologists are seeking to authenticate what could be a landmark discovery in the documentation of early Christianity: a trove of 70 lead codices that appear to date from the 1st century AD, which may include key clues to the last days of Jesus’ life. As UK Daily Mail reporter Fiona Macrae writes, some researchers are suggesting this could be the most significant find in Christian archeology since the Dead Sea scrolls in 1947.

Cars will be banned from London and all other cities across Europe under a draconian EU masterplan to cut CO2 emissions by 60 per cent over the next 40 years.
The European Commission on Monday unveiled a “single European transport area” aimed at enforcing “a profound shift in transport patterns for passengers” by 2050. The plan also envisages an end to cheap holiday flights from Britain to southern Europe with a target that over 50 per cent of all journeys above 186 miles should be by rail.

It didn’t take too long for my home state of Arizona to be back in the news and it just makes me love this place more and more. This time it’s not even regarding our fight against the major influx of illegal immigration or border killings. This time it’s because some secular group is launching…

It’s called “Good Christian Bitches”, and it’s intense hatred of biblical Christianity is more than a little disturbing. I wonder if they would be equally as brave to produce a show called “Good Muslim Bitches”. But a show like that would never get produced because there is too much respect for Islam in this country, and obviously, none for God and the bible.
