Some white evangelicals, the faith group most likely to refuse to get the shot, join thousands in citing “sincerely held” religious beliefs. About 3,000 Los Angeles Police Department employees are citing religious objections to try to get out of the required COVID-19 vaccination. In Washington state, hundreds of state workers are seeking similar exemptions. And an Arkansas hospital has been swamped with so many such requests from employees that it is apparently calling their bluff.Religious objections, once used sparingly around the country to get exempted from various required vaccines, are becoming a much more widely used loophole against the COVID-19 shot.And it is only likely to grow following President Joe Biden’s sweeping new vaccine mandates covering more than 100 million Americans, including executive branch employees and workers at businesses with more than 100 people on the payroll.The administration acknowledges that some small minority of Americans will use—and some may seek to exploit—religious exemptions. But it said it believes even marginal improvements in vaccination levels will save lives.It’s not clear yet how many federal employees have requested a religious exemption. The Labor Department has said an accommodation can be denied if it causes an undue burden.In the states, mask and vaccine requirements vary, but most offer exemptions for certain medical conditions or religious or philosophical objections. The use of such exemptions, particularly by parents on behalf of their schoolchildren, has been growing over the past decade.The allowance was enshrined in the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, which says employers must make reasonable accommodations for employees who object to work requirements because of “sincerely held” religious beliefs.A religious belief does not have be recognized by an organized religion, ...Continue reading...

The case, involving a Christian convert and his Southern Baptist minister, is the latest in ongoing First Amendment disputes over the role of clergy in the death chamber. A Texas death row inmate won a reprieve Wednesday evening from execution for killing a convenience store worker during a 2004 robbery that garnered $1.25 after claiming the state was violating his religious freedom by not letting his pastor lay hands on him at the time of his lethal injection.The US Supreme Court blocked John Henry Ramirez’s execution about three hours after he could have been executed. He is condemned for fatally stabbing 46-year-old Pablo Castro, who worked at a Corpus Christi convenience store.Ramirez was in a small holding cell a few feet from the Texas death chamber at the Huntsville Unit prison when he was told of the reprieve by Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark.“He was quiet when I let him know,” Clark said. “He shook his head and said: ‘Thank you very much. God bless you.’”In its brief order, the court directed its clerk to establish a briefing schedule so Ramirez’s case could be argued in October or November.Prosecutors say Ramirez stabbed Castro 29 times during a series of robberies in which the inmate and two women sought money following a three-day drug binge. Ramirez fled to Mexico but was arrested 3½ years later.Seth Kretzer, Ramirez’s lawyer, had argued the Texas Department of Criminal Justice was violating the death row inmate’s First Amendment rights to practice his religion by denying his request to have his pastor touch him and vocalize prayers when he was executed. He called the ban on vocal prayer a spiritual “gag order.”“It is hostile toward religion, denying religious exercise at the precise moment it is most needed: when someone is transitioning from this life to the next,” ...Continue reading...
Paula White leads the 70-member group, which includes evangelical leaders who backed the former president.In another sign Donald Trump is eyeing a run to regain the White House, the former president and his religious advisers announced last week the launch of a national faith advisory board, apparently aimed at reinvigorating his conservative Christian base.The new initiative, first reported by the Jewish news outlet The Forward, was formally unveiled on a conference call organized by Intercessors for America and led by longtime Trump adviser Paula White.The Pentecostal megachurch pastor said the new effort, which includes participation from “70 executives,” is intended to continue the “great work that we have done,” referring to efforts she oversaw as head of the Trump White House’s faith-based office.White drew parallels to the creation of a previous “faith advisory board,” a likely reference to a group of largely evangelical Christian leaders who advised the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and operated as an informal council on religion matters throughout his presidency.“It grew to the most robust coalition in modern-day history,” White said of the board’s work. “Our unity brought unprecedented victories, influence and access.”White was joined by Jennifer Korn, who previously served as a special assistant to then-President Trump through his White House Office of Public Liaison. Korn told listeners the new national faith advisory board would be “continuing the work of the White House Office of Public Liaison on the outside to make sure that we are one strong voice.”Trump took up most of the rest of the call with lengthy remarks in which he oscillated between critiquing President Joe Biden’s record on faith-based issues — “a ...Continue reading...
Temple Baptist Church - 9-5-2021Revelation 17:1-5As we begin tonight, I want to make it clear that what I am preaching is what God says about “the great whore,” not my own personal opinion of feelings. The Word of God is clear in its wording as to help us to understand the wickedness of the end-time religion and its true colors. A. Verse 1. As we continue to look at “The Great Whore,” the beast that rose from the earth in chapter 13, I want to show a contrast between this end-time religious system and the true Church. Whereas the end-time religious system is called a great whore, the true church is referred to as a “chaste virgin.” 2 Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. Ephesians 5:25-27 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; (26) That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, (27) That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. B. The Source of Her Power. Both the political and religious systems of the end-time are controlled by Satan. The true Church is controlled by God. 1. The Political System - Revelation 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? Ephesians 6:12-13 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (13) Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 2. The Religious System - Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. Revelation 2:13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. Revelation 2:24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. C. Verse 2. The Realm of Her Influence. The kings of the earth are “in bed” (Revelation 2:22) with the great whore. The United States has an ambassador in the Vatican City in Rome. Around the world, Europe, Asia Minor, South America, Central America, North America along with other places, the great whore has tremendous influence over governments. Callista Gingrich, wife of Newt Gingrich, picked as U.S. ambassador to the Vatican by Donald Trump in 2016. D. The Inhabitants of the world. In 2018, there was an estimated 1,253,926.000 Roman Catholics. That figure is 20% of the world's population at that time. In the United States, 25% of the people claim to be Catholic. With each passing day, the influence of the Roman Catholic Church grows. E. Verses 2-4. The Wickedness of Her Deeds. Notice the words that are associated with this end-time religious system. 1. Fornication. Used either literally (sex) or figuratively (spiritual idolatry). In the case of the religious system, it must be figuratively. This end-time system will be known by its use of idols. 2. Wine of its fornication. Wine in the Bible can be either literal or figurative. (Fornication does not produce wine) Banqueting or intoxication. To be under the influence of something. When someone is under the influence of either alcohol or drugs, their mind is befuddled, and their thought process is impaired and decision-making ability is decreased. 3. Names of Blasphemy. Names are to make us aware of or to understand. When I am referred to as pastor, it identifies not only who I am but what I am. Blasphemy means to speak evil of or vilification. The name of this end-time system identifies it: Roman Catholic. Rome has always been identified as an enemy of God's people from its inception as Rome has and continues to be an idolatrous place, full of statues and idols. Catholic means universal. God's Church has never been universal! It is both inclusive (accepting all who are born again) and exclusive (not accepting those who are not born again). 4. Cup … abominations and filthiness. Abomination-detestable, vile, abhorrent, despicable, to stink. Filthiness – lewdness, a state of impurity, demonic. Their “cup” is the “chalice” from which the Catholic priest drinks during their liturgical services. This is copied from the online Catholic Store for priests: “The chalice is a central part of the Eucharistic celebration, and many priests have special, more ornamented chalices for important feast days and liturgical celebrations.” The Catholic Mass is a continual re-crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Hebrews 6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. Jeremiah 51:6-7 Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD'S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence. (7) Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. F. Verse 3. The Place of Her Sitting. “I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast” The great whore is riding on the back of the end-time political system. They are inseparably tied together with Satan and the antichrist. Revelation 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. Revelation 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, G. Verse 4. The Array of Her Garments and The Riches of Her Coffers. “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls” A perfect description of Roman Catholicism! The dress of their priesthood, the gold that covers their churches, and the riches that they own. The Riches of Her Coffers. The richest religious system on earth is the Roman Catholic Church! I have been in these churches in Mexico and the gold is spectacular to see. The people are in poverty while worshipping under domes of gold!
