Another week, another spate of demonizing accusations against Christians for their heinous crimes against humanity such as the adoption of non-white children, the refusal to lie to children’s parents about their school’s anti-family agenda, and perhaps most egregiously, the thought crime of being “biblically-minded.”
First up: Minnesota state Rep. Heather Keeler, a Democrat and member of the Yankton Sioux Tribe, blasted “white Christians” in a recent Facebook post for perpetuating the “genocide” of Native Americans. Of what were these white Christians guilty? Infecting Native Americans with smallpox-laced blankets? Getting them addicted to tobacco and firewater and gambling? No, it’s much more insidious than those antiquated conspiracies.
“I’m sick of white Christians adopting our babies and rejoicing,” Keeler complained. “It’s a really sad day when that happens. It means the genocide continues.” That’s right – the unhinged Keeler believes that white Christian parents are taking in Native American orphans not to give them a good home and a loving family prompted by Christian love and charity, but in order to exterminate the race. Those fiends!
“If you care about our babies, advocate against the genocide,” she went on. “Help the actual issues impacting indigenous parents, stop stealing our babies and changing their names under the impression you are helping. White saviors are the worst!”
The Republican Party of Minnesota shot back in response to what it rightly called Keeler’s “racist rant”: “There is no place in our political discourse for attacks on Minnesotans’ race or religions. We condemn this hateful and extremist rhetoric in the strongest possible terms and call on all Democrats to do the same.”
But because Democrats in our current cultural climate never face consequences for openly expressing bigotry toward white people and Christians, Keeler later doubled down on her professional Facebook page where she wrote that whites adopting Native American babies strips them of their “identity,” a process she again described as a “form of genocide.”
Meanwhile, Arizona’s Washington Elementary School District in the Phoenix and Glendale areas recently dissolved its partnership with Arizona Christian University over the biblical values to which its students commit themselves. Washington District had an ongoing contract enabling student teachers from the university to be placed in the district’s schools for field experience, with the potential for employment.
Why did the district break off the contract? The board told Fox News Digital,
The board’s decision to discontinue its partnership with Arizona Christian University was based on the board’s commitment to create a safe place for our LGBTQ+ students, staff, and community. This includes not knowingly entering into partnerships with any organization that explicitly discriminates against protected classes covered by our nondiscrimination policies.
During the meeting in which the decision was made, school board member Tamillia Valenzuela painted an ominous picture of the university’s Christian beliefs and said she was “disheartened” to learn about the contract that had been ongoing for five years.
Valenzuela, it should be noted, describes herself as “a bilingual, disabled, neurodivergent Queer Black Latina… who loves a good hot wing (but only with the right ranch) and things that sparkle.” During the meeting she was wearing cat ears on her head.
“While I full-heartedly believe in the religious freedom and people being able to practice whatever faith that they have, I had some concerns regarding looking at this particular institution,” she said. Translation: I wholeheartedly support the First Amendment until someone’s faith and morality might pose a challenge to my Alphabet Agenda.
“My concerns, [is] when I go to Arizona Christian University’s website, [they are] ‘committed to Jesus Christ, accomplishing his will and advancements on earth as in Heaven.’” In all fairness, I could see how this would be concerning to a woman committed to the woke dismantling of all the purportedly oppressive power structures of Western civilization, including its Judeo-Christian value system.
“Part of their values is… [to] ‘transform the culture with truth by promoting the Biblically-informed values that are foundational to Western civilization, including the centrality of family, traditional sexual morality, and lifelong marriage between one man and one woman,’” she said. Mmm, yes, that definitely sounds extremist.
“I want to know how bringing [teachers] from an institution that is ingrained in their values so directly brings impact to three of your board members who are a part of the LGBT community,” she concluded. Translation: I support diversity and inclusion as long as people’s values and viewpoints align neatly with my own.
Because if we’re bringing people in whose mission [has]… been with their institution’s education that very plainly on their website… that above all else, it was to influence people to Biblically-minded. How does that hold space for people of other faiths? How does that hold space for our members of the LGBT community? How does that make space for people who think differently and do not have the same beliefs?
At some point, we need get real with ourselves and take a look at who we’re making legal contracts with and the message that is sending to our community. Because that makes me feel like I could not be safe in this school district.
It’s unclear how Valenzuela thinks student teachers from a Christian university make her literally unsafe, but some of her compatriots were similarly freaked out. Board member Kyle Clayton stated, “I, too, echo what Ms. Valenzuela said when I… looked into not only their core values, but the statement of faith… [which they] ask their students to sign and live by. Proselytizing is embedded into how they teach. And I just don’t believe that that belongs in schools.”
First of all, “proselytizing” is not embedded in how they teach. “The WESD School board has no proof that a student teacher or teacher from Arizona Christian University or Grand Canyon University [another private Christian university] has ever violated district policy state or federal policy regarding separation of church and state,” said Julie Stark, who has taught in the district for 27 years. “This is discrimination against all employees of faith, especially those who are Christian.”
“There was no basis for it [the school board’s concern],” confirmed Lisa Hayes, who has taught in the district for 11 years. “Nothing has happened that should have initiated this, except for their hypothetical ideas.”
Second, let’s not pretend that Valenzuela, Clayton, and the members of other left-dominated school boards across the country reject proselytizing in the classroom; they’re perfectly happy to proselytize for the biological incoherence of gender ideology, the Marxist lies of Critical Race Theory, the black supremacy of Black Lives Matter, the wealth distribution of socialism, the cult of climate change, and the racism of anti-racism. Indeed, awakening students to social justice activism is their primary aim as woke educators.
And they’re perfectly willing to lie to their students’ parents about all of it. A California teacher who lost her job recently after refusing to comply with the district’s gender policies, citing her Christian beliefs, told Fox News Digital recently about the pressure she felt as a teacher to hide students’ gender transitions from parents, lying to them if necessary.
Jessica Tapia, who worked at the Jurupa Unified School District, said, “According to my school district, students have privacy. And so if a student shares information regarding a pronoun preference or thinking there may be the opposite gender of what they biologically are, if they share that information with a teacher, we are supposed to keep that info from parents in case the parent doesn’t know…
“We’re talking [about] 12, 13, 14, 15-year-olds. I don’t believe [kids] should have this ‘privacy’ to where their parents are being left in the dark about some very pertinent information about their well-being,” she continued. “I knew immediately, like in my gut, in my heart, in my soul, that there was a decision I had to make because, you know, these two things were totally butting heads.”
I essentially had to pick one. Am I going to obey the district in the directive that are not lining up with… my own beliefs, convictions and faith? Or am I going to stay true…, choose my faith, choose to be obedient to… the way the Lord has called me to live. And so it was crazy to be in the position where I realized that I couldn’t be a Christian and a teacher.
In a notice from human resources firing her, the district explicitly stated that the Christian commandment not to lie – in this case, to children’s parents – conflicted with their policy on the gender issue:
Based on your religious beliefs, you cannot be dishonest with parents… If asked about a student’s gender identity by a parent, you cannot refer the parent to a counselor, defer the inquiry and suggest they speak with a student…, or otherwise deflect the parent’s inquiry…
The district cannot accommodate your religious beliefs that… prohibit you from maintaining a student’s gender identity and refraining from disclosing a student’s gender identity from his/her/their parent(s)/guardians.
The takeaway from all these recent examples of open, anti-Christian bigotry is that Christians in America today occupy a stage of Christianity that the Protestant thinker Aaron Renn has labeled “negative world.” It is a period of decline in which
society has come to have a negative view of Christianity. Being known as a Christian is a social negative, particularly in the elite domains of society. Christian morality is expressly repudiated and seen as a threat to the public good and the new public moral order. Subscribing to Christian moral views or violating the secular moral order brings negative consequences.
This is the reality which writers like Renn and Rod Dreher (The Benedict Option, Live Not By Lies) have been warning that Christians must recognize – that anti-Christian wokeness is now the dominate worldview among our cultural elites. It rules not only our current political administration, but all the cultural institutions such as our schools and universities, our news media, the entertainment arena, the ad industry, seemingly every human resource department, even our corporations and many churches – and it’s metastasizing rapidly throughout the medical and legal fields, where its impact will be terrifying and oppressive.
Wokeness, not Christianity, is the reigning mainstream religion, and its rainbow banner of diversity, inclusion, and tolerance is a cover for its lethal hostility toward Christians and their “unsafe” morality. These hate-filled totalitarians want to abolish free speech and religious freedom, and drive Christians first from the public square, then exterminate them from the private sphere as well – make no mistake.
The soft persecution already underway against Christians in America and the West is going to accelerate and intensify. We must gird ourselves with every tool and weapon we still have at our disposal: the law, government policy, cultural messaging, and most importantly, the full armor of God.

In CANADA a Christian student was suspended from a Christian school for saying that there are two sexes, a man and a woman. For speaking this sacrilege he was suspended,
Maybe these so-called Christian “educators” should read the Bible or study science. There are and always will be only two sexes. The rest is psychotic delusion.
“In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell
The title: “Welcome, Christians, to the ‘Negative World’ could be paraphrased: “Welcome to our wold Christians, we hate Christ, therefore we hate you. Prepare to be persecuted”.
The true Christian is regenerate of spirit. He is a new creature as attested to in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come”.
Christ promised his followers persecution when He said in John 15:20: ” Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.
Who would want to be a Christian if persecution is their lot in this life? Firstly, the choice is not up to you. ” Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes”. (Ephesians 1:4 (NLT)
True Christianity, as opposed to counterfeit Christianity or Christian in name only ( CINO) is clearly not for everyone. Hence that thought provoking passage in Matthew 7:14 (ESV) “For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few”. The ‘life’ alluded to here is life in eternity with God.. No amount of persecution can destroy that.
THX 1138 says
“True” Christianity versus “False” Christianity, you do know many Christians killed each other over that issue.
Who can prove what is true and what is false Christianity? Until finally Christians decided let’s stop killing and persecuting each other and leave each other in peace to worship Christ as each individual decides.
The only thing one can say for certain, as Ayn Rand discovered, is that the INITIATION of force or fraud, is one of the greatest evils. Is that idea Christian enough for you? No INITIATION of force or FRAUD allowed?
Mo de Profit says
“ Until finally Christians decided let’s stop killing and persecuting each other ”
Where are they doing this?
THX 1138 says
Glad to know Christians aren’t killing each other anymore.
Now, how can we convince everyone else the INITIATION of force and FRAUD is wrong and evil?
Racking up those downvotes, aren’t you, you freak.
The threat today to Christians comes entirely from non-Christians, i.e., atheists.
In Luke 22: 37-38, Jesus advised the Apostles, “Sell your cloak and buy a sword., but he wasn’t urging them to protect themselves by purchasing arms. He said this so that the prophecy in Isaiah 53::12 might be fulfilled – that is, that the soldiers who came to arrest Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemani would identify Jesus and his followers (having swords) as criminals.
If you hadn’t noticed (why would you?) Christians are once again being identified as criminals. Those identifying them as criminals would be leftists and Randians. In other words, atheists have started the persecutions again. The persecutors would include you.
Your comment: “Until finally Christians decided let’s stop killing and persecuting each other ” proves my point about counterfeit christians. Those calling themselves chrstians and resorting to murder are counterfeits. They’re CINOS. For true Christians, Galatians 5:22-23 applies: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law”. Yet people exclaim: “Oh, but look at all the bad stuff that was done in the name of christianity, like the Inquisition and all that”. The reality is that false christianity was the culprit. The perpetrators of wickedness who identify as christians are false flaggers. The friut of their spirit identifies their god as the god of this world as identified in 2 Corinthians 4:4: ” Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God”.
And our rezidentura complete bozo strikes again. It’s not about Ayn Rand or Christians killing each other in this article. It’s about the “religion” of Woke revealing who the true fascists are, including you.
Atheist thugs have slaughtered hundreds of millions (some estimate 120m!)
of their own people, in the 20th Century ALONE, than all the religious wars in human history COMBINED. The number of people killed by so-called Christians does not amount to ONE DROP in the bucket of human atrocities. It is not even a BLIP on the screen of violence committed by people like you, THX. End of Report.

Christians killed and persecuted each other too. Over doctrine, dogma, interpretation of Holy Scripture. Do you remember the Reformation and the Counter Reformation?
How many Christians killed each other over doctrine, dogma, and interpretation of Holy Scripture?
Is there a body count of the Reformation and Counter Reformation? Did those Christians go to Heaven or Hell?

Once again the article is about Woke….not you, not Objectivism and not about your various obsessions with Christianity. See a psychiatrist for your mental problems known as narcissistic personality disorder.
House hate-troll THX claims, with a straight face, that two wrongs make a right. Then, as if that were not embarrassing enough, the sad, sick, silly atheist uses his MORAL indignation against murder (which he got from Christianity BTW!) to condemn………Christianity. Wow. Just wow.
I have challenged you before, but you are not intellectually honest. You have appointed yourself and expert on Christianity yet you know little to nothing about the subject. Until you do an in depth study of the only book that is the actual source of Christianity, the bible, you will continue to be a false expert. Your real motivation is not truth or rationality, but a desire to support the atheistic views of your idol, Ayn Rand.
It also would not hurt if you read an unbiased history of the Church. Ayn Rand and the so-called objectivists are haters of Christianity. It does not fit their atheism which they equate with rational thinking, At bottom the philosophy of atheistic materialism is irrational, but those that hold to such a position will never realize it until they meet their maker.

You really should stop telling people what to do. It’s none of your damn business.
But I guess this article has emboldened you. If/when the Wokees finally get rid of the Christians by putting them in extermination camps what will you do then? Hide behind your atheism or the skirt of your girlfriend to save yourself?
Yes you are that dead inside.
Hello Mark A good question. Christianity is called “the way of the truth”. So what was this faith/religion that fired someone for telling the truth? Not Christianity, clearly. But then is the cross a Christian symbol?
The Greek word rendered “cross” in many modern Bible versions is stau·rosʹ. In classical Greek, this word meant merely an upright stake, or pale. And the book The Non-Christian Cross, by J. D. Parsons (London, 1896), says: “There is not a single sentence in any of the numerous writings forming the New Testament, which, in the original Greek, bears even indirect evidence to the effect that the stauros used in the case of Jesus was other than an ordinary stauros; much less to the effect that it consisted, not of one piece of timber, but of two pieces nailed together in the form of a cross. . . . It is not a little misleading upon the part of our teachers to translate the word stauros as ‘cross’ when rendering the Greek documents of the Church into our native tongue.”

Dear Sue, what does this have to do with the pursuit of survival, flourishing, and happiness on earth?
I want to live and flourish on earth, how do I do that? What does dying on a stick and going to Heaven have to do with surviving and flourishing on earth?

Objectivism couldn’t create anything on Earth least of all happiness. You are one of the most miserable people I have ever encountered. The only time you seem at all happy is when you are trashing Christians.
It figures that you would come up with the most insulting way to trash Jesus’ crucifixion. Imagine a world of small minded Objectivists like yourself running around. How horrible would that be.
You have a lot of problems including your narcissistic personality disorder. See a psychiatrist before you act out your obsessions.
You CERTAINLY won’t flourish as a hate-troll. Now, if we readers were to chip in and buy you an anatomically-correct therapy doll, could you show us where that mean Christian touched you and made you decide to dedicate your life to hatred for those who dare disagree with you about God’s existence?
Read Revelation 21: 1. There is a growing body of biblical scholarship which refutes the idea of “the rapture” as well as the notion of a dual destination for human souls – heaven or hell.
There will be a new heaven and a new earth.
Hello again THX – The Inspired scriptures assure us that the meek – those meek towards their Creator – will inherit “the earth” and live forever upon it. Christianity is called “the way” – it is the way back to the life and perfection our first parents so tragically threw away.
And while the cross is a religious symbol, it is not a Christian symbol.
Jesus himself told us what the mark of his true followers would be. At John 13:35 he said: “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” And if we follow the way of the truth – which is the way of love – we can hope to live forever in the restored earthly paradise. I hope to live on this lovely planet forever. I hope we all will.
Jesus told His disciples to take up their crosses
and follow Him. He did not mean a physical cross.
Christ understood the cross as a Christian symbol.
Therefore, I will stick with HIS interpretation of that
THX 1138 says
So you have the correct interpretation. That’s nice. Others will go on sinning. Even if they have the right interpretation. It’s unfortunate.
The end always justifies the means.
Secular leftists would actually read these examples of clear anti-Christian hatred
and be genuinely puzzled by them. They would genuinely be baffled that we, on
the other side, seriously believe that their actions were religious bigotry. They would
insist, with straight faces, that they are on the side of the angels. That actually
proves the claim of this author -wokism IS a religion. If ONLY Christians were half
as serious and committed and passionate about their beliefs!!!
While I am not claiming that persecution is anywhere NEAR what they early church
suffered as described in the New Testament. But the fact religious bigotry is rapidly
increasing in the world, especially in the West, is undeniable. Buckle up, believers.
There is a difference between the acts of Christians and the message of Christ. In the Bible, Jesus does not tell his disciples that women are inferior, or that non Christians should be beheaded or that women have to wear veils. Women are not to be stoned to death for adultery. Non-Christians are to be treated fairly and even compassionately. The prctices of some Christians may violate the teachings of Christ, but Christ does not steer their actions or cause them to violate his teachings. It is different in some other religions, where all these bad actions are commandments and examples to follow. The people who attack Christians conveniently ignore the difference. But how can Christian teachings compel people to act as good persons who are disposed to act maliciously. It is different when the malevolent acts are commended by the scriptures of other religions and followers are commanded to copy the deeds of the founders, when these deeds were sometimes evil.
And good deeds by members of religions with scriptures that do not call for good deeds cannot be attributed to the authors of these commandments. One can easily imagine which other religions it might be.

She describes herself as “neurodivergent”. Basically it means that the person doesn’t see or understand things in the same manner that normal people do. It was originally used to describe the problems in understanding or learning (aka “learning disabilities”) but like everything else it has been co-opted by the left. They use it as a magical reason that “queer” people are “queer” (they just see things differently) and is presented as if to say they are the ones that see things PROPERLY, while the rest of us “non- neurodivergent” (mundanes?) have it wrong.
In point of fact, these people are non “neurodivergent” but SCHIZOPHRENIC.
Schizophrenia is a serious mental disorder in which people interpret reality abnormally. Schizophrenia may result in some combination of hallucinations, delusions, and extremely disordered thinking and behavior that impairs daily functioning, and can be disabling. People with schizophrenia require lifelong treatment.
It is the height of idiocracy to allow these delusional people – of which Valenzueala is clearly one – with extremely disordered thinking and the inability to discern reality from fantasy (she wears cat ears), to be influencing and controlling any elements of society, let alone the most fundamental: education of our youth.
I would like to thank FPM and Mark Tapson for the opportunity,here, to point out that Apartheid Zionist Israel came at the expense of the Palestinian People,a People that includes Palestinian Catholics, and other Palestinian Christians,in addition to Palestinian Muslims.
There are still de facto “Refugee Camps”, or Communities,that resulted from the Occupation of the Palestinian Homeland,and the resultant Displacement and Ethnic Cleansing of Christian communities by European Jewish Occupiers,including holocaust survivors.
Of course,Jews don’t like to talk about how Jews victimize(d) Christians in Occupied Palestine,aka Apartheid Zionist Israel.
Interestingly,and to the historical point,Christians who were ethnically cleansed by Jews in Palestine found refuge and sanctuary in Lebanon,tragically and ironically in a Refugee Camp that had previously been occupied by the victims of the Armenian Christian Genocide ,by the Turks. Both Turks and Jews engage in the narrative and agenda of Denial and Victim-Blaming in their respective Genocides of a vulnerable,and innocent,Christian minority. Just sayin’.
Mark Dunn says
Boomers Says. Your Jew hatred belongs somewhere else and you compare Israel to Turkey because of your ignorance or blind hatred. No more antisemitism on FrontPage Magazine.
I don’t doubt that this nutcase really does feel “threatened” by student teachers and interns from a nominally Christian college, and fear.
