Democrat Senator Wants To See Children Protected From Vacation Bible School
Driving kids to Vacation Bible School would become a misdemeanor in Nebraska if a recent proposal by Nebraska Senator Megan Hunt (D) passed into law.

Hunt’s amendment (AM74), filed on January 23, defined a religious indoctrination camp as “a camp, vacation Bible study, retreat, lock-in, or convention held by a church, youth group, or religious organization for the purpose of indoctrinating children with a specific set of religious beliefs.”

Twisting To Mirror The Culture Instead Of Christ

At The Moment When The Church Of England Turns God Into A Gender Neutral Non-Binary Entity, They Will Be Worshipping Antichrist, And That’s Fact 
For starters, the Church of England is a hot bipolar mess with one side embracing Roman Catholicism, the other nominally Protestant, producing nothing but Laodicean hogwash constantly in conflict with itself. Ironically, the Church of England was the birthplace of the King James Bible back in 1611, having survived the Gunpowder Plot in 1605. What’s on the menu in 2023? Not much, just a raging debate to turn the God of the Bible into a gender neutral, non-binary thing you might just as well refer to as Antichrist from here on in.

This Is America’s Culture Now…
If people that lived 50 or 60 years ago could see us today, what would they think of our culture?  I believe that the performance of “Unholy” at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night will go down in history as a pivotal cultural moment.  Yes, the “horror movie-inspired performance” that Sam Smith and Kim Petras came up with was designed to get as much attention as possible.  They wanted people like me to write about it, and that is exactly what I am doing.  But just because they were seeking attention does not change the fact that their performance was unspeakably evil.  And it also does not change the fact that millions of their fans absolutely adored it.  We have gotten to a point where our culture openly celebrates wickedness, and that is a very dangerous place to be.
