Christianity in the News: August 2023

It’s been a few months since I’ve written an article about some of the major news stories about American Christianity (two months to be exact). So, it’s high time to cover the important intersection between faith and politics. With that, let’s dive into three Christian news stories from the past month:

1. Ohio Republican Congressman CANCELS Pro-Life Christian

A few weeks ago, Republican Congressman Max Miller publicly condemned a pro-life Christian for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ on social media.

Former Ohio Right to Life employee Lizzie Marbach posted this pro-Christian tweet last week, and Ohio Congressman Max Miller (7th Congressional district) made the following responses to original Marbach’s tweet:

Congressman’s Miller response was completely unacceptable response.

Let that interaction sink in. A GOP Congressman asked a Christian woman to delete her tweet proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Does Religious freedom exist anymore?

The response to Miller’s inane tweets was pretty brutual. Conservatives and Leftists alike bashed Congressman Miller for his comments:

After this interaction, the Ohio Right to Life fired Lizzie Marbach. The organization claimed that they did not fire her due to this single event, however it is reasonable to believe that Congressman Miller’s anti-Christian posts did potentially pressure the organization.

At this point, Conservative Christians need to rethink their relationship with the Republican party. If the GOP is going to keep trotting out people like Max Miller as the future of the party, then Conservative Christian should want no part in the future of that political party.

It is high time for the Republican party to start representing the values of Conservative Christianity. Defending Christians’ religious liberty and primarying out jokes like Miller would be a good start.

Also, make sure go check out Lizzie Marbach’s recent article in The Federalist about this recent situation.

2. Lutheran Pastor charged for “Election Interference”

The American Regime is ruthless, and it is willing to destroy anyone willing to stand up to its blatant corruption.

Two weeks ago, a Fulton county grand jury indicted President Trump and 18 others. One of eighteen people being indicted is a Lutheran (LCMS) pastor named Rev. Stephen Cliffgard Lee. Pastor Lee is accused of the bogus, ambiguous chargs of: “unlawfully conspir[ing] and endeavor[ing] to conduct and participate in criminal enterprise in Fulton County, Georgia, and elsewhere.

After the 2020 election, Pastor Lee contacted and met with a Georgia election worker involved with some of the alleged shenanigans going on in Fulton County Georgia on the night of the election. So, these actions apparently will now constitute a crime under our illegitimate Regime. Unbelievable. Questioning an election is now clearly illegal under our current Regime.

3. Christian Church survives Maui Wildfires

To end on a more positive note, a 175+ year old Roman Catholic Church in Maui survived destructive wildfires raging in the nearby vicinity.

If you look at the video, then you can see that everything around the Church building is burned up and scorched. Yet, the building looks completely untouched. Praise be to God!

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed learning about these three Christian news stories from August 2023. Let us pray that Traditional, “America First” Christians continue promoting Christian values in the American public square.

Christ is King!
