Christian Arrested For Saying Homosexuality Is a Sin

by Michael Mickey

According to a report by the Telegraph, a Christian street preacher in the United Kingdom, Dale McAlpine, was arrested by a “homosexual police community support officer” because McAlpine was “reciting a number of “sins” referred to in the Bible, including blasphemy, drunkenness and same sex relationships”, which is apparently grounds for arrest under a law referred to as the “Public Order Act”.

According to the report, the Public Order Act was introduced in 1986 to deal with “violent rioters” and “football hooligans”, but today? It is being used to combat religious free speech as seen in this incident. Alarming? Yes, but this is the world we live in.

Republicans, Democrats and Israel

by Caroline Glick

Bipartisan support for Israel has been one of the greatest casualties of US President Barack Obama’s assault on the Jewish state. Today, as Republican support for Israel reaches new heights, support for Israel has become a minority position among Democrats.
Consider the numbers. During Operation Cast Lead — eleven days before Obama’s inauguration — the House of Representatives passed Resolution 34 siding with Israel against Hamas. The resolution received 390 yea votes, five nay votes and 37 abstentions. Democrats cast four of the nay votes and 29 of the abstentions.
