SBC REBUKES PRESIDENT CLINTON— Southern Baptist Convention delegates at their recent meeting in Houston rebuked fellow Baptist Pres. Bill Clinton for supporting abortion and homosexual rights, and passed a resolution urging him to affirm biblical morality.Among his first acts as president, Clinton with the stroke of his pen reversed the pro life policies of two predecessors. He has promised to sign the draconian Freedom of Choice Act,which would nullify any real regulation and restriction of abortion. He has created the first pro homosexual White House (7/3 World). The SBC's credentials committee rejected an attempt to unseat messengers from his Little Rock church.

HAITI: VOODOO, CATHOLICISM, POVERTY— Haiti is the world's first black republic, and the poorest country in the Americas. About 80 percent of its 6.5 million people live below absolute poverty (6/21 C.Today),and about 85 percent are illiterate.Voodoo is the only power greater than tyranny in Haiti. It is practiced by roughly 85 percent of Haitians. Roman Catholics make up 75 percent of Haiti's population,Protestants 17 (Evangelicals 12).American Christians active in Haiti quip, "Haiti is 95 percent Christian and 100 percent voodoo." Voodoo is a blend of Catholicism and African spiritism. Pope John Paul II recently met with voodoo priests in Benin seeking common ground and told them they would not have to forsake all their culture to convert to Catholicism.

ILLEGAL TO PROSELYTIZE IN GREECE— Greek authorities arrested 2,000 people between 1983 and 1992 for violating the anti proselytizing law. The Greek government ban is so strict that it includes talking openly about one's religion on the streets. The Greek Orthodox Church claims 95 percent of the nation's 10 million people (6/28 Chr.News). Greece's constitution states that all school students must be taught "faith in the homeland and...Greek Orthodox traditions." People who be come officially Protestant are seen as traitors. Where are the "free speech police" liberals?

WHITE HOUSE HOMOSEXUAL SCREENS FEDERAL JOBS— Robert Hattoy, the White House's most prominent house homosexual, is an associate personnel director and oversees the search and screening pro cess for potential hires in federal agencies (6/19 World).He has placed many homosexuals in jobs throughout the administration and is to place more by end of summer. Homosexuals call him their "mole." This is but another indication that our country is moving away from God. King Asa (1Ki. 15:12) did what was right in the eyes of the Lord and "took away the sodomites out of the land."

OUIJA BOARD NOT A TOY— The Ouija board is a dangerous tool of Satan to deceive people into think ing they may receive messages from spirit beings. This occultic game,as with Dungeons & Dragons, can be controlled by demons. It is a forerunner to New Age channeling. The 5/93 Chr.World Rpt. says "a channeler allows a familiar spirit to enter his/her body so that the spirit can convey its messages to the material world through them. The Ouija board is definitely not a 'toy' that the Christian will want in their home." Also, beware of Nintendo games and the "Ninja" craze.

PUBLIC EDUCATION A SOCIALIST SYSTEM— U.S. public education, a $180 billion near monopoly, is the most socialist enterprise in the Western world (5/93 Evan.Meth.). Nobel economist Milton Fried man was asked why it was,given the appalling and obvious failures of socialism everywhere in the world contrasted with the stunning successes of market capitalism, that most U.S. students still graduated with such a surprisingly socialist perspective. His clear answer: "Because they are products of a socialist system namely public education. How can you expect such a system to in culcate the values of free enterprise and individual entrepreneurship and competition when it is based on monopoly state ownership, abhors competition and survives only through compulsion and taxation." The education establishment (NEA) today focuses on social equality and student cooper ation rather than teaching the basics and preparing a work force for international competition.

MARY MAY HELP CATHOLICS WITH SALVATION?— An article in the Spring, 1993 Fatima Crusader (RC) by Archbishop Arulappa says: "On Dec. 10, 1925, our Loving Mother Mary appearing to Lucia [said]: 'My child,behold My Heart surrounded with the thorns which ungrateful men place therein at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least try to console Me. Announce in my name that I promise to assist at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months,shall: 1.Go to confession and receive Holy Communion, 2. Recite the rosary, 3.And keep Me company for a quarter of an hour while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary. 4. With the intention of making reparation to Me'...." The Mary cult of Romanism is, as Al Doyle says, the "world's largest cult," laden with false doctrines.
