Whoopi “Trump derangement syndrome,” Goldberg Told Judge Jeanine Pirro to ‘Get the F*** Out’ of ‘The View’

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ABC’s The View, threw Fox News host and author of Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy, Judge Jeanine Pirro off the set of the show and allegedly told her to “get the f*** out of here” after a heated, off-camera exchange on the daytime show on Thursday.

“She’s never ever been treated with such disrespect in her whole career,”  a source that was present for the exchange which took place backstage after the show, told Breitbart News. “She’s fought for women, battered people, and justice. And to be treated that way is just awful.”

1 ‘ABOLISH ICE’: Nebraska vandals cause $1,200 in property damage at state GOP headquarters Note1)Vandals in Lincoln, Nebraska have smashed windows and spray-painted the headquarters of the Nebraska Republican Party, causing at least $1,200 in damage.
 
 The individual or individuals who destroyed the property also left behind a message that reads “ABOLISH ICE,” according to pictures posted by the Nebraska Republican Party on Facebook.
 
 Police are investigating the vandalism, which they said occurred sometime between midnight and after 3 a.m., according to the Omaha World-Herald. They believe the vandals picked up bricks from a nearby construction site and tossed them at the glass doors.
 
 “This destructive criminal activity is disappointing, but unsurprising, given the increasingly radical rhetoric of national Democrat leaders and candidates like Jane Raybould, Kara Eastman, and Jane Kleeb,” NEGOP Executive Director Kenny Zoeller said in a statement. “Violence is the natural result of the Left’s statements urging Democrats to literally ‘push back’ on Republicans and ‘resist’ at any cost.

3 California man arrested for threatening to kill FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s family over net neutrality. Note3)A 33-year-old resident of Norwalk, California was arrested today for sending threatening emails to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai last year, according to the US Department of Justice. The threats, sent by an individual named Makara Man, were made primarily in the second of three messages sent to Pai’s official FCC email accounts in late December, just days after the FCC voted to repeal net neutrality protections.
 
 The first email allegedly accused Pai of causing the suicide of a teenager through his actions that led to the net neutrality vote. The second email contained an explicit threat against members of Pai’s family, as well as a listing of three locations in and around Arlington, Virginia where Pai is said to live. The third email allegedly contained a photo of Pai and a separate photo of Pai and his family.

5 Increasing threats to Homeland Security include burned animal carcass left on staffer’s porch Note5)(WASHINGTON) — Department of Homeland Security employees are seeing violent threats with greater frequency because of the president’s immigration policy, according to an official with knowledge of a recent threat assessment.
 
 The department determined that there was a “heightened threat against DHS employees” in response to recent government actions surrounding immigration, according to a letter sent to employees over the weekend.
 
 “This assessment is based on specific and credible threats that have been levied against certain DHS employees and a sharp increase in the overall number of general threats against DHS employees,” Claire Grady, acting deputy secretary of Homeland Security, wrote to employees on Saturday.
 
 In early May, the Trump administration announced it would begin enforcing a zero-tolerance immigration policy — criminally charging everyone who illegally crossed the southwest border. This led to around 2,300 children being separated from their parents as they faced prosecution

7 Threats Against EPA Employees Up 50% Under Trump Admin. Note7)Threats against employees of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have spiked 50 percent this year, according to an investigation by the News4 I-Team.
 
 Agents with EPA’s Office of Inspector General have launched at least 70 investigations into threats against EPA employees in 2017, including a surge of threats against agency Administrator Scott Pruitt.
 
 None of the threats resulted in injury, according to investigators, but the threats have been deemed legitimate risks to the safety and well-being of some agency employees, including those at EPA headquarters at Federal Triangle in Washington, D.C.
 
 “I do feel we’ve prevented acts of violence through our investigations. I feel very confident we have,” said EPA assistant inspector general for investigations Patrick Sullivan.

9 Congressman Steve Scalise Gravely Wounded in Alexandria Baseball Field Ambush Note9)ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A lone gunman who was said to be distraught over President Trump’s election opened fire on members of the Republican congressional baseball team at a practice field in this Washington suburb on Wednesday, using a rifle to shower the field with bullets that struck four people, including Steve Scalise, the majority whip of the House of Representatives.
 
 Mr. Trump, in a televised statement from the White House, condemned the “very, very brutal assault” and said the gunman had died after a shootout with the police. Law enforcement authorities identified him as James T. Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Ill., a suburb of St. Louis.
 
 Two members of Mr. Scalise’s Capitol Police security detail were wounded as they exchanged fire with the gunman in what lawmakers described as several chaotic, terror-filled minutes that turned the baseball practice into an early-morning nightmare. One was wounded by gunfire, and one suffered other, minor injuries.

10 Prosecutors file new charges against inauguration protesters who rioted, torched immigrant’s limo. Note10)D.C. prosecutors have filed additional charges against more than 200 protesters arrested during President Trump’s inauguration, continuing to drill down on suspects they believe smashed restaurant windows, set a limousine on fire and attacked the car’s driver.
 
 While most of the protesters were initially charged with one count of felony rioting, a grand jury on Thursday returned a superseding indictment that added new charges: inciting or urging to riot, conspiracy to riot and counts of destruction of property.
 
 On Friday in D.C. Superior Court, prosecutors also obtained their first felony conviction in the Jan. 20 riots. Dane Powell, 31, of Tampa, pleaded guilty to rioting and assault on a police officer, admitting he threw a large piece of concrete at the officer. Powell is set to be sentenced in July and faces up to three years in prison for each charge. His attorney could not immediately be reached for comment.

Hillary Clinton Scandals

The Clinton Foundation continues to be the subject of a great deal of controversy long after Hillary Clinton lost her election to Donald Trump. The most recent stems from the Obama administration’s controversial approval of a Russian company’s purchase of Uranium One. That purchase gave Russia control of 20% of the uranium in the United States. While that deal was under consideration, however, the Justice Department was investigating a series of criminal acts inside the U.S. committed by Russian nuclear officials, including bribery, extortion and racketeering. In addition, they uncovered evidence that Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, creating the appearance, at least of a conflict of interest, since Hillary Clinton, who was then Secretary of State, signed off on the Uranium One purchase.

Political Changes And Implications For A New Malaysia Post GE14

By Prof. Datuk Dr Denison Jayasooria

We have just witnessed the unbelievable results of the 14th general election (GE14) with a change of government from the Barisan Nasional (BN) to Pakatan Harapan (PH). Most opinion polls, academics and commentators did not forecast the scale of PH victory nor the mass movement on the ground ushering in a new age for democracy and good governance in Malaysia.

As one reflects on these events, we cannot but acknowledge the hand of God in events of the world and a response to pray for a just and fair government for a better Malaysia for all Malaysians. With a new government in place at both the Federal and many State levels, let us continue to pray for our leaders to govern with justice and fairness and be accountable to the people with the fear of God in their hearts.

As I reflect on GE14 and the future, let me highlight three key points that will require Christians as responsible citizens to continue to play their role in society as salt and light (Matt.5:13-14).

PEACEFUL TRANSITION

It is amazing to see the peaceful transition of power. While the Election Commission did not play an independent role nor make the announcements of election results early, nonetheless by June 10, 2018, a new Prime Minister had been sworn in and eventually the Deputy Prime Minister and other key Ministers appointed to the Cabinet.

In the past, the May 13 bogeyman would be released to instil fear among the people that any change would result in bloodshed; however, this was not true. Malaysians of all ethnic communities voted for change and the majority of parliamentary seats went to PH. In my assessment, this is not just a Chinese, or Indian or Malay or Dusun-Kadazan or Iban tsunami but a Malaysia tsunami and desire for change.

We need to keep reminding politicians that this is the reality and get them to downplay both race and religion in the choices people make. The majority had voted for change, which resulted in a peaceful transition that surprised the world, especially our ASEAN neighbours. We must continue to remember that this change, from South to North – Johor, Melaka, Negri Sembilan, Selangor, Perak, Penang, and Kedah – and Sabah in East Malaysia, was possible because of the silent Malay voters who switched from BN to PH.

We can take this peaceful transition for granted but as Christian citizens of Malaysia we must play the peace-maker and peace-builder role (Matt. 5:9), ensuring our close relationship with people of all ethnic communities. We must foster peaceful living and a greater sense of appreciation of our diversity. We must see all as God’s creation and the covenant with Noah (Gen. 9:9) as a dimension that needs to be captured in Malaysian society so as to build a rainbow community of all people.

CONTESTATION CONTINUES

While PH secured a majority of the parliamentary seats to form the Federal Government, we must recognise that it secured only 47.9% of the popular vote. BN secured 33.8% and a majority of the parliamentary seats in Malay-Muslim majority constituencies while PAS won 16.9%, also in Malay-Muslim majority areas. Based on popular showing, almost half of the voters in GE14 did not support PH. There are therefore some major implications.

The major one is that PAS managed to form the state government in Kelantan and Terengganu. They won a significant number of seats in Kedah and almost became kingmakers in Perak. Altogether, they won 18 parliamentary seats. It was forecasted that they would not be able to win a single parliamentary seat. There is a strong Islamic following, which Prof. Shamsul calls the “moral constituency”. This core group, especially from the Malay-Muslim community, are ideological supporters of PAS and would not vote for BN or PH. Likewise we must recognise that Umno captured a majority of the Malay majority parliamentary seats in Peninsular Malaysia, i.e. 47 parliamentary seats.

We need to reflect and note that there are different aspirations and visions in the remaking of a Malaysian society. A simple illustration is the threefold aspiration for Malaysia. There is the Muslim or Islamic dominant view where the Islamic laws will become supreme over civil law. There is a Malay-Malaysia where the ethnic Malay is dominant and others have a place; the other communities will be subservient to the majority race. Here, ethnicity and religion play a role in an ethno-religious nationalist way. The third is a Malaysia for all Malaysians but one which still holds a Constitutional balance between equality of Article 8 and the special position of Article 153 of the Federal Constitution, including Article 153’s legitimate interest of others.

We have witnessed the differing views and contestation on the appointment of a non-Malay-Muslim Finance Minister and the Attorney General. In both cases, the Prime Minister went by the guidelines of the Federal Constitution but not by the sentiments of sections of the Malaysian society.

Some have said change and reform had been too rapid; others had disagreed. We must be wise and at the same time, engage with all sections with the right constitutional understanding. Over the years, there has been much distortion of knowledge and understanding. We must have open conversations but at the same time, be sensitive to all views and aspirations.

Often, Christian citizens are isolated and therefore, we must enter the public space, exercising our democratic rights and engaging with especially Malay and Muslim groups. For that we must improve our Bahasa Malaysia communication skill and develop an appreciation of the Malay culture. We could engage at both formal and informal levels but key is building friendship and fostering good neighbourliness. We need to understand the Malay-Muslim narrative and play a role in ensuring that it becomes a Malaysian narrative and not an exclusively extreme race and religion one.

INSTITUTIONAL REFORM

The new PH government has ushered in political and economic institutional reforms. These were promised in the PH manifesto in strengthening good governance, accountability and human rights. The setting up of various special committees is testament to the political will. The major role is one of reviewing the separation of powers between the executive, judiciary and legislature in line with the Federal Constitution. In this context, the repeal of oppressive legislation and space for democratic freedom is most critical. The 1MDB abuses and national debt are other major challenges for the new government.

Within the Christian community are major talented and professionally qualified people who could volunteer their time for the institutional reforms. Those with legal expertise, financial and banking including investments, audit and financial controls, administration and execution could all volunteer for national service to strengthen the process of reform. Civil society provides a good avenue. Civil society organisations (CSO) have created a CSO platform for Reform, with KOMAS providing coordination. CSO have organised themselves in thematic areas and have been making collective presentations to the Institutional Reform Committee (IRC). At a second level, CSO are also seeking to relate directly with Ministries and agencies directing specific matters on women and children, security laws, human rights and election reform, etc.

On May 28, 2018, I had the opportunity to lead a team from the CSO platform to meet all the five IRC members. They were open to hear our views, especially on addressing ethnic relations and conflict, poverty and inequality as well as fostering a human rights culture. Christian citizens could play an active role in religious freedom issues and concerns for all religious groups. More than inter-religious dialogue is engagement and trust building to resolve conflicts. One proposed system could be community mediation centres.

As Christian citizens, we can monitor the promises made via the PH Manifesto, 100-day promises, and the institutional reform for greater openness, transparency, accountability and fairness to all communities. We need to pray for the Cabinet, all members of parliament, and members of the judiciary as well as the civil service (1 Tim. 2: 1-2). Let us pray that all will carry out their services without fear or favour. Imperative is that we abide by the advice of a mother as found in Proverbs 31:8-9. We must become the voice of the voiceless, irrespective of ethnicity and religion. More well qualified Christians should apply for government service and play an effective role as Joseph (Gen. 41:39-40) and Daniel (Dan. 1:18-21).

Many of us can see the rise in patriotic feelings for the nation, especially in the way Malaysians have been responding to the Government’s crowdfunding initiative, Tabung Harapan Fund. As citizens, we can do our part in assisting the Federal Government in settling its debts caused by the previous administration’s mismanagement of funds. Whether big or small, we can respond through this vehicle, and also be found faithful as Scripture instructs us to pay our taxes (Rom. 13:6).

But most of all as Christian citizens, we must do what is good as required by God and act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8). May God give us the vision and strength in our responsibility as citizens of Malaysia.

Europe: “The Vision is an Islamic State”

The growing religiousness is not an expression of marginalization. We are talking about people who are well-integrated, but who want to be religious

Professor Viggo Mortensen

The vision is an Islamic state — Islamic society… Muslims will prefer sharia rule. But the vision for twenty years from now is for sharia law to be part of Germany, that sharia will be institutionalized in the state itself“.

I will pick them one by one — I will start with people around me… If every Muslim would do the same in his surroundings, it can happen with no problem… you don’t confront him [the German] with force; you do it slowly… There will be clashes, but slowly the clashes will subside, as people will accept reality.

Europe will still exist but, as with the great Christian Byzantine Empire that is now Turkey, will it still embody Judeo-Christian civilization?

A Dutch government report published in June showed that Muslims in the Netherlands are becoming more religious. The report, based on information from 2006-2015, is a study of more than 7,249 Dutch nationals with Moroccan and Turkish roots. Two thirds of the Muslims in the Netherlands are from Turkey or Morocco.

ACCORDING TO THE REPORT:

78% of Moroccan Muslims pray five times a day.

33% of Turkish Muslims pray five times a day.

40%Approximately  of Both Groups Visit A Mosque At Least Once A Week.

14% Increase Since  2006 to 2015 in young Moroccan Women Wearing A Headscarf
…..(ie. up from 64
% in 2006 to 78% in 2015)

Large Majorities of both groups eat halal:
…..93% of Moroccan Muslims.
…..80
% of Turkish Muslims.

» Muslims say that faith is a very important part of their lives:
96
% of Moroccan Muslims.
89
of Turkish Muslims.

»  7% Increase Since  2006 to 2015 in the number of Dutch Moroccan Muslims who can be described as
….strictly adhering to Islam (increased from 77
% in 2006, to 84% in 2015.

» 8% Increase Since  2006 to 2015 in the number of Turkish Muslims who can be described as
….strictly adhering to Islam (increased from 37% in 2006, to 45% in 2015)

There Are Few Secular Muslims:

7% Among Turkish Muslims.

2% Among Moroccan Muslims.

In Denmark, the trend of Muslims becoming more religious was apparent as early as 2004, when a poll showed that Muslims were becoming more religious than their parents, especially “young, well-educated and well-integrated women”. At the time, Professor Viggo Mortensen said, (PDF of article English)The growing religiousness is not an expression of marginalization. We are talking about people who are well-integrated, but who want to be religious“.

A more detailed Danish poll from 2015 showed that Muslims had become more religious since a similar poll taken in 2006:

In 2006, 37% prayed five times a day, whereas the number had gone up to 50% in 2015.

In 2006, 63% believed that the Koran should be followed to the letter; in 2015, it was 77%.

Brian Arly Jacobsen, a sociologist of religion from the University of Copenhagen, was surprised by the results. “With time we would expect [that Muslims] would become more like the rest of the Danes, who are not particularly active in the religious sphere,” he said.

Jacobsen thought that a possible explanation might have been the 20-30 new mosques that were built in the decade preceding 2015.


The trends expressed by these polls are corroborated by studies and polls showing that many Muslims in Europe want to live under sharia law.

According to a 2014 study of Moroccan and Turkish Muslims in (Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Sweden), an average of almost 60% of the Muslims polled agreed that Muslims should return to the roots of Islam.

75% thought there is only one interpretation of the Koran possible, and 65% said that Sharia is more important to them than the laws of the country in which they live.

A 2016 UK poll showed that 43% of British Muslims “believed that parts of the Islamic legal system should replace British law while only 22 per cent opposed the idea”.

In a 2017 study, which included a poll of 400 Belgian Muslims, 29% said they believe the laws of Islam to be superior to Belgian law, and 34% said they “would definitely prefer a political system inspired by the Quran”.

According to a 2014 study of Moroccan and Turkish Muslims in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Sweden, an average of almost 60% of the Muslims polled agreed that Muslims should return to the roots of Islam, and 65% said that Sharia is more important to them than the laws of the country in which they live.

The more than two million predominantly Muslim migrants that have arrived in Europe in recent years are only reinforcing the trend of growing Muslim religiosity on the continent. A 2017 study of predominantly Afghan asylum seekers in the Austrian city of Graz showed that the asylum seekers, mostly men under the age of 30, were all in favor of preserving their traditional Islamic values with 70% going to the mosque every Friday for prayers.

The women were even more religious, with 62.6% praying five times a day, notably more than the men (39.7%). In addition, 66.3% of the women wore a headscarf in public. Half of the migrants said that religion now plays a larger role in their daily lives in Europe than it did in their native country, and 51.6% of the interviewees said that the supremacy of Islam over other religions was undisputed.

The tendency of many Muslims to become more religious once they arrived in Europe was also on display in a new DOCUMENTARY series, “False Identity,” by Arabic-speaking journalist Zvi Yehezkeli, who went undercover to report on the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe and the US. In Germany, he encountered two young Muslims from Syria, who came to Germany via Kosovo, where they received help from a “British Islamic organization”.

They had left Syria as secular Muslims, but on the way to Germany they lived for a year in Pristina, Kosovo, where, according to Yehezkeli, “Muslim Brotherhood organizations are active in helping refugees while turning them into devout Muslims. Ahmed and Yusuf arrived [in Germany] already praying five times a day“.1)The quote begins at 21:24 in the documentary. The statements by Yusuf and Ahmed follow immediately after.

According to Ahmed:

“When I left Syria, mentally I felt more relaxed. The Islamic charity organization played an important role in this. Look, the first time you meet them they start helping you. You sit, you stare at them, they pray in front of you and here I am a Muslim, studied the Quran, yet don’t pray. Suddenly I find myself alone asking, Why shouldn’t I pray like all others?”

Yehezkeli asked them what their dream is. “The vision is an Islamic state — Islamic society,” said Yusuf, “Muslims will prefer sharia rule. But the vision for twenty years from now is for sharia law to be part of Germany, that sharia will be institutionalized in the state itself“.

In contrast to the growing religiousness of Muslims in Europe, Christians are becoming less religious. In a study of young Europeans, aged 16-29, published in March and based on 2014-2016 data, the author, Stephen Bullivant, a professor of theology and the sociology of religion at St Mary’s University in London, concluded:

“With some notable exceptions, young adults increasingly are not identifying with or practicing religion… Christianity as a default, as a norm, is gone, and probably gone for good — or at least for the next 100 years”.

According to the study, between 70% and 80% of young adults in Estonia, Sweden and the Netherlands categorize themselves as non-religious. Between 64% and 70% of young adults consider themselves non-religious in France, Belgium, Hungary and the UK. The most religious youths were to be found in Poland, where only 17% of young adults defined themselves as non-religious, followed by Lithuania with 25%.

Young Muslims like Yusuf and Ahmed from Syria say they want to spread Islam by converting Europeans, also known as dawa. They are themselves perfect examples of having been at the receiving end of dawa — becoming devout Muslims through the Islamic organization in Kosovo and now engaging in dawa themselves. “I will pick them one by one — I will start with people around me. They will listen. If every Muslim would do the same in his surroundings, it can happen with no problem,” said Yusuf. Asked if the Germans might resist dawa, he said:

“You don’t confront him [the German] with force, you do it slowly… There will be clashes, but slowly the clashes will subside, as people will accept reality. There is no escape; every change involves clashes”.

Given young Europeans’ lack of a religious identity and the vacuum left by the departure of Christianity from the lives of the majority, one has to wonder how sturdy their ability will be to withstand such attempts at proselytizing. Europe will still exist but, as with the great Christian Byzantine Empire that is now Turkey, will it still embody Judeo-Christian civilization?

Trump Threatens To Release 9/11 DOCS Implicating Clinton’s, Bushes

Trump Sends Warning to Mueller & Deep State

Trump Threatens to Release 9/11 Docs Implicating Clintons, Bushes

 

President Trump is prepared to go beyond exposing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 9/11-Saudi cover-up by releasing new information on how the Bushes and Clintons were also involved, according to high-level government sources.

In short, Mueller’s role in covering up Saudi Arabia’s ties to 9/11 is just the tip of the iceberg; Trump is set to expose even more collusion by the deep state, according to officials who spoke to Infowars.

Trump has previously criticized former President George W. Bush for his actions prior to and during the 9/11 attack.

“I lost hundreds of friends, the World Trade Center went down during the reign of George Bush,” then-candidate Trump said during a debate in 2016. “He kept us safe? That is not safe.”

Months later, the House Intelligence Committee released a redacted version of the once-classified 28 pages from the Congressional Joint Inquiry into the 9/11 Commission report.

While redacted in places, the 28 pages did reveal some bombshell information.

“While in the United States, some of the September 11 hijackers were in contact with, and received support or assistance from, individuals who may be connected to the Saudi Government,” the report reads. “There is information, primarily from FBI sources, that at least two of those individuals were alleged by some to be Saudi intelligence officers.”

Trump is threatening to release the information that was possibly redacted or perhaps even new documents completely unknown to the public.

Interestingly, the purge within Saudi Arabia during Trump’s first year in office removed many Saudi allies of the Bush and Clinton families.

The purge against “corrupt royalty” by King Salman targeted 10 princes and 38 senior cabinet members, and interestingly Saudi Arabia reportedly accounted for 20% of Clinton’s campaign funding in 2016.

Additionally, an attorney for 9/11 victim’s families, Jim Kreindler, said the rush to war with Iraq necessitated the cover-up of the Saudi connection to 9/11, and Mueller was instrumental in making this happen.

This explains why the Bush administration allowed prominent Saudis, including members of the Bin Laden family, to fly out of the country right after the 9/11 attacks, an evacuation that the 9/11 Commission report later conveniently claimed never happened.

Hersey Watch: Hillsong Worship Pastor’s Evolution is undeniable

Joel Houston

Joel Houston

Hillsong Church has, over the years, hardly avoided the limelight, often finding itself at the center of hotly-contested debates

Now one of its biggest leaders is running headlong into the creation debate.

Joel Houston,  eldest son of the Sydney-based church’s founders, lead musician in the worship band Hillsong United, and co-pastor of Hillsong Church in New York City, tweeted Monday that “evolution is undeniable.”

Houston is certainly not the first to raise questions about the six-day creation story outlined in Genesis, but the affirmation of evolutionary theory nevertheless remains controversial in many — if not most — Christian circles today.

In 2014, Christian musician Michael Gungor stirred up controversy for a blog post he actually wrote in 2012 in which he explained he had “no more ability” to believe 

“that the first people on earth were a couple named Adam and Eve that lived 6,000 years ago.”

He continued, according to Relevant:

I have no ability to believe that there was a flood that covered all the highest mountains of the world only 4,000 years ago and that all of the animal species that exist today are here because they were carried on an ark and then somehow walked or flew all around the world from a mountain in the Middle East after the water dried up.

Gungor defended his claims at the time during an interview with Mike McHargue, co-host of “The Liturgists Podcast,” saying that, though he was raised to hold a literalist or “young earth” interpretation of the creation story, he “came up against some of the science” in college. A lot of what Gungor learned, he explained, created “tension” in his theology. See Right: Study Unwittingly Uncovers Possible Major Flaw in Evolution of Species Theory

Famed young earth creationist Ken Ham, founder of the conservative nonprofit Answers in Genesis, took issue with Gungor’s admission, which he described as “outrageous.” He went on to claim the musician was “repeatedly indoctrinated into evolutionary ideas” throughout college.


So when Houston raised his own questions about theology and evolution earlier this week, Gungor chimed in: See Below

HOW DID PEOPLE RESPONDED TO HOUSTON’S CLAIMS?


How can @joelhouston call himself a worship pastor & yet hold such a heretical view of creation? The Bible says that “God created the heaven and the earth” and “on the sixth day God created man “in His own image”. Times aren’t “evolving”, our culture is decaying. See 2 Peter 3:17 — Frank Sowers (@FrankSowers) June 25, 2018




WHAT DOES HOUSTON ACTUALLY BELIEVE?

After seeing the intense reaction that arose from suggesting evolution is “undeniable,” Houston hedged a bit by offering some context  to his earlier tweet.

He asserted God is “way bigger than we think,” and regardless of one’s theological or scientific beliefs, He “is undiminished by our limitations.”

“If God’s creative process was an easy working week, or finely crafted over six-ages of millennia, does it make Him any more or less God?” Houston asked. “Or us any more or less created in His image? Either way, it was an unfathomably wonderful six-day process, however you think to see it.”


In an interview with Faithwire, Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson, a research biologist for Answers in Genesis, gave Houston the benefit of the doubt, admitting it appears the famous worship leader could still be working through his own theological beliefs because his comments on evolution are “ambiguous.”

One of Jeanson’s main criticisms of progressive thought on evolution is that, according to Scripture, death is an interruption to God’s perfect creation — a bug in the system.

But according to evolutionary theory, death isn’t a bug at all — it’s a feature, a mainstay in a process designed to elevate the fittest by eliminating the weak.

“I think the straightforward reading of the whole of Scripture, the entire corpus of Scripture treats death as an intruder into a very good, perfect creation, in which there is no death, and bloodshed, and suffering,” Jeanson explained. “It’s man’s sin that brings this to bear on the universe. God curses the universe as a result of mankind’s sin.”

Jeanson argued those who don’t hold to a literal interpretation of the creation story found in Genesis but instead see it as some sort of poetic narrative must “tolerate errors in the Scripture.” He went on to say the Genesis account is in “severe conflict” with mainstream evolutionary theory.

After delivering a lecture recently at Boston College, Jeanson recalled a student approaching him to say she “can’t believe” that certain parts of Scripture are literal and without error while others parts are fictional and inconsistent with fact.

“I can’t pick and choose, wake up every morning and pick which parts of the Bible I believe and which parts I don’t. That doesn’t make any sense to me,” he recalled the student saying, adding, “I think the next generation understands the severe importance of this issue when it comes to the foundations of the Christian faith.”

But for Gungor — and perhaps Houston — that dichotomy might not pose a problem.

As Jeanson noted, those who hold to a young earth view often see the evolutionary debate as paramount, while those who espouse an old earth perspective tend to put the issue on the back burner, though many, according to Jeanson, call into question the scientific honesty of their opponents.

REITERATING the commitment of the Rabat Process Partners  to the effective implementation of the Valletta Joint Action Plan (JVAP);

TAKING INTO ACCOUNT the mandate given to the Rabat and Khartoum Processes  to monitor the JVAP, as well as the mapping exercise already conducted, to ensure its follow-up, and COMMENDING the efforts made to implement the technical instrument for the long-term monitoring of the JVAP;

RECALLING the commitments made by the Rabat Process Partners at the Ministerial Conferences in 2006, 2008, 2011 6)See Dakar-Agricole-2011-declaration-US.pdf  and 2014,  and the principles contained in the 2011 Dakar Declaration  (an operational and coherent dialogue, a flexible and balanced approach, committed partners and shared responsibility);

RECOGNISING the progress achieved within the framework of the different plans and strategies of the Rabat Process and taking into account the lessons learnt from the analyses carried out at the end of the Rome Programme 2014-2017;

Page 1 of 8

NOTING the value of the technical expertise and experience of external observers such as international organisations working in the field of migration and asylum, civil society actors, members of the diaspora and academic representatives, in enriching and operationalising the dialogue; CALLING for the strengthening of cooperation with the latter through increased consultations;

CONSCIOUS of the driving force of the Rabat Process in identifying common political priorities for migration and asylum issues between Africa and Europe, and its contribution to the formulation and implementation of migration strategies;

ENDEAVOURING to ensure coherence with the implementation instruments which have emerged since 2014 and which redefine the partnership framework, AVOIDING duplication of actions being undertaken in this respect and ENSURING complementarity of interventions;

ADOPT the Marrakesh Programme for 2018-2020,  which comprises the present Political Declaration as well as the targeted, operational Action Plan, and which is based on a regional approach whilst also respecting state sovereignty;

AGREE to align the said Programme with the five domains of the JVAP in order to maintain coherence and complementarity with it:

Domain 1: Development benefits of migration and addressing root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement;

Domain 2: Legal migration and mobility;

Domain 3: Protection and asylum;

Domain 4: Prevention of and fight against irregular migration, migrant smuggling and trafficking in human beings;

Domain 5: Return, readmission and reintegration;

AGREE equally to effectively implement, in a balanced way, the Action Plan which is thus adopted by incorporating the following cross-cutting priorities:

1.

A human rights-based approach: the implemented actions will contribute to fully respecting the human rights and dignity of refugees and migrants, irrespective of their migration status;

2.

Particular attention will be paid to the issues of gender and the protection of migrants in vulnerable situations including, in particular, women and children;

3.

Increased attention to the fight against xenophobia, racism and discrimination: the partners will undertake efforts to combat these phenomena, and to promote a balanced narrative on migration and diasporas, based on facts and highlighting their positive contribution to the development of societies in countries of origin, transit and destination;

4.

A regional approach: the identification, formulation and execution of actions will take into account local and regional specificities.

5.

An inclusive and multi-stakeholder approach: in their interventions, the partners will seek to involve all the actors under the coordination of the national authorities (regional organisations, local authorities, traditional and customary authorities, representatives of civil society and migrant and refugee communities, social partners, the private sector, the media Page 2 of 8 and academia) as well as relevant International Organisations, to ensure coordinated and orderly management of all dimensions of the migratory phenomenon.

6.

Particular attention to the collection, analysis and sharing of disaggregated data: among the activities envisaged, the partners will endeavour to identify existing initiatives and studies, to share migration data and will undertake, if necessary, specific studies for operational purposes at national or regional levels. The data and information obtained will feed into and contribute to migration policy-making processes;

DECIDE to target concrete actions which reflect the specific added value of the Rabat Process. This resides, notably, in its ability to build networks of technical and political actors, to formulate actions which take regional specificities into account, and to centralise information gathered as a result of their implementation, whilst at the same time respecting geographical balance at all levels;

AGREE to specify the modalities for the implementation of the targeted actions and to use the relevant mechanisms and tools to monitor and evaluate the implementation of the Marrakesh Programme for 2018-2020 on a periodic basis in order to improve its scope and impact.

DOMAIN 1: Development benefits of migration and addressing root causes of irregular migration and the phenomenon of displaced persons

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development aims, in its Goal 10.7, to “Facilitate orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people, including through the implementation of planned and well-managed migration policies”.

Since its inception, the Rabat Process has consistently promoted the positive potential of regular migration and the key role of the diaspora for countries of origin, transit and destination. The strengthening of synergies between migration and development constitutes a priority domain and a specific feature of the Rabat Process. The dialogue partners agree to pursue this path and will focus most of their actions on maximising the benefits of regular migration for development, including, as a priority, members of the diaspora in this process.

The Rabat Process partners recognise the multiple root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement. These root causes, most of which are interconnected, need to be increasingly addressed through a wide range of appropriate responses both at policy and operational levels. Taking into account the mixed nature of migration flows, the partners reiterate the commitments made in the Valletta framework to invest in development and the eradication of poverty, to fight the root causes of irregular migration, to support humanitarian aid and development assistance in the countries most affected by the phenomenon of displaced persons, and to address environmental and climate change issues in the most affected regions.

Objective 1: Maximising the positive impact of regular migration for development

Action 1: Identify and share good practices that enable countries to gain better knowledge of the profiles of their diasporas and to adopt or to optimise strategies that promote their economic, social and cultural potential for development, whilst also analysing the potential obstacles to the adoption and optimisation of these good practices.

Action 2: Contribute to reducing the costs of remittances and to facilitating remittances sent by migrants to their countries of origin, in particular by supporting innovative or existing initiatives using the potential offered by digitalisation. The partners might refer, for example, to the work carried out by the African Institute for Remittances and its network of focal points.

Action 3: Promote initiatives that support entrepreneurship and productive investment among young people from the African Diaspora (such as the flagship MEETAfrica programme, developed within the framework of the Rabat Process), and encourage these young people to use their skills for the benefit of their countries of origin.

Objective 2: Achieve a common understanding of the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement in the Rabat Process region

Action 4: Analyse the root causes and make practical recommendations (particularly through the organisation of thematic meetings on this subject) with a view to improving the incorporation of these issues into policy development.

Action 5: Promote a more systematic inclusion of issues related to the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement into socio-economic development strategies and programmes at national level, and into development cooperation programmes, whilst also promoting ownership of existing regional normative frameworks.

Domain 2: Legal migration and mobility

Taking note of the above-mentioned Goal 10.7 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Rabat Process partners recognise the need to encourage and to strengthen the pathways to regular migration, based on efficient civil registration systems, and to promote the mobility of certain categories of travellers (in particular, businessmen and businesswomen, young professionals or researchers) between European and North, West and Central African countries.

Objective 3: Promote regular migration and mobility, especially of young people and women, between Europe and North, West and Central Africa, and within these regions

Action 6: Encourage the establishment of exchange networks between vocational training institutes and employment agencies in Europe and Africa, in order to draw full benefit from the skills of young migrants and to adapt technical training to the needs of the labour market. Particular attention will be paid to activities targeting women and youth.

Action 7: In accordance with the national legislative frameworks, promote projects which aim to strengthen the portability of the rights and social protection of regular migrants and their families, for example, through the conclusion and the implementation of appropriate bilateral, regional or international conventions.

Action 8: Identify good practices and success factors which can guide relevant policy development and support inter- and intra-regional mobility, in particular through the analysis of existing studies on circular migration, particularly at regional level.

Objective 4: Encourage facilitation of visa issuing procedures

Action 9: In a spirit of partnership, pursue an open dialogue regarding visa facilitation, in particular through meetings and technical training sessions.

Action 10: Support actions designed to improve the accessibility, efficiency and transparency of the various national systems for visa issuance, including support for the creation of local information structures or the establishment of online information portals.

Domain 3: Protection and asylum

Rabat Process partners reiterate their international commitments in the field of protection and asylum, including those contained in the Valletta Political Declaration, and in particular those aimed at providing protection “to all those entitled to it in accordance with international and regional instruments”. They reaffirm their respect for the dignity of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons, and for the protection of their human rights, irrespective of status. The partners encourage countries in their efforts to sign up to and implement existing international conventions on protection, including the 1951 Geneva Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Page 5 of 8 Protocol. They also encourage capacity building of national institutions with regards to asylum systems.

Objective 5: Promote measures aiming to strengthen the protection of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons

Action 11: Identify existing cross-border and regional protection initiatives in one of the sub-regions of the dialogue, and propose actions to stakeholders aimed at improving the protection of refugees and forcibly displaced persons. Particular attention will be paid to take into account the most vulnerable people, the best interests of children and the needs of unaccompanied minors.

Action 12: Promote the adoption of local, national and regional action plans aimed at defining procedures for an effective response, especially in the event of massive displacements of people.

Objective 6: Promote the integration of refugees and forcibly displaced persons into host communities

Action 13: Promote the integration of refugees and forcibly displaced persons through the establishment of awareness-raising campaigns aimed, on the one hand, at local communities and on the other hand, at refugees and asylum seekers, covering their rights and obligations in host countries.

Action 14: Share experiences and good practices which promote access to work and which allow people benefitting from international protection to become more self-reliant.

Domain 4: Prevention of and fight against irregular migration, migrant smuggling and trafficking in human beings

The Rabat Process partners reiterate their commitment to international obligations relating to the prevention and fight against migrant smuggling and trafficking in human beings, which are two serious forms of organised crime under international law (the 2000 United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and the additional United Nations protocols against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Air and Sea, and aimed to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children).

In accordance with the Valletta Political Declaration, the partners encourage the stepping-up of efforts to prevent and combat these phenomena, both in Europe and Africa, through various instruments. Within this framework, the search for alternatives to the informal economy stemming from the illicit smuggling of migrants and the trafficking of human beings, as well as awareness-raising measures, are particularly encouraged.

The partners recognise the contribution of regional and international organisations and civil society organisations in this domain. The added value of the Rabat Process lies, inter alia, in its ability to connect the actors concerned by these two phenomena, in order to promote mutual learning and to improve cooperation.

Objective 7: Build the capacities of public institutions with competency in the areas of integrated border management, and the prevention and fight against migrant smuggling and trafficking in human beings

Page 6 of 8

Action 15: Improve the detection capabilities of national authorities with regard to smuggling of migrants and persons in need of international protection, trafficking in human beings, as well as in the area of integrated border management and control.

Action 16: Strengthen judicial and police cooperation at bilateral, inter- and intra-regional and international levels regarding the exchange of information, paying particular attention to financial investigations.

Action 17: Continue and accompany efforts designed to develop and to implement appropriate legislative and institutional frameworks at both national and regional levels, in accordance with the 2000 United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and the relevant additional Protocols against the smuggling of migrants and trafficking in human beings.

Objective 8: Improve the protection of migrants and persons in need of international protection who have been smuggled, and victims of trafficking in human beings

Action 18: Facilitate the sharing of good practices in relation to awareness-raising and information on the risks of irregular migration and trafficking in human beings, targeting, in particular, children and women, and involving all stakeholders (the State, the diaspora, the media, social networks, civil society, international organisations and the private sector).

Action 19: Formulate concrete responses regarding the protection and assistance of people affected by smuggling and victims of trafficking in human beings, particular women and girls (reception structures, legal advice, social, psychosocial and health services, interpretation, reintegration, etc.) and promote their inclusion into national, regional and sub regional initiatives and policies.

Domain 5: Return, readmission and reintegration

The Rabat Process partners reiterate their adherence to obligations under international law in the area of return and readmission and recall the importance of sustainable reintegration. They reiterate their support for the principle of non-refoulement and agree to give preference to voluntary return. They recall that policies in the area of return and readmission are the shared responsibility of States, and that they should be efficient, transparent and carried with full respect for the human rights, security and dignity of migrants.

The partners of the Rabat Process applaud the joint progress achieved through the political dialogues which have been initiated in this domain. It is important that these efforts are pursued and that this dialogue is translated into action, leading to strengthened cooperation and more efficient return and readmission.

Objective 9: Strengthen the capacities of the competent authorities in order to improve and ensure the identification processes and the issuing of travel documents.

Action 20: Exchange best practices related to return, readmission and reintegration at national, regional and cross-border levels (in particular through regional consultations).

Action 21: Promote the use of innovative identification techniques. The thematic meeting on return, readmission and reintegration organised in Brussels in 2016 proposed, among other things, the use of videoconferencing for identification or pre-identification, more systematic use of fingerprints, or recourse to joint actions for complex cases. Depending on the needs, provide support (technical Page 7 of 8 assistance, peer support or training) to a specific group of countries in order to help them put these techniques in place.

Objective 10: Encourage programmes that ensure the safe return and sustainable reintegration of migrants, in full respect of their rights and dignity

Action 22: Organise peer-to-peer meetings between European and African cities, and with other competent authorities, to enable mutual learning in migration management, including sustainable return, building on existing networks (such as the City-to-City initiative) and capitalising upon their achievements.

Action 23: Strengthen assisted return programmes and promote actions aimed at accompanying and including all returned migrants in development policies and programmes at local level.
