MICHIGAN LAWMAKERS PASS BILLS APPROVING INSTALLATION OF SAFE HAVEN BABY BOXES 
IN EFFORT TO SAVE NEWBORN LIVES

 LANSING, Mich. — Lawmakers in Michigan have passed a package of bills that authorize emergency workers to install baby boxes at fire stations and other locations in an effort to save newborns that might otherwise be abandoned in dumpsters or killed by their mothers.
“The purpose is so that children are not dumped in dumpsters or places where young parents are just scared [and] don’t know what else to do,” Oshtemo Township Fire Department Chief Mark Barnes told WOOD-TV. “We want to give them a safe place to turn to.”
The bills work in concert with the state’s Safe Delivery of Newborns Law, which states that women may surrender their newborns at a hospital, fire station or police station without penalty within 72 hours of the child’s birth.
The newly-passed legislation now extends the time that mothers may leave their baby at safe haven locations to 30 days, and allows the installment of baby boxes at the sites.
As previously reported, the boxes are similar to incubators in that they are padded, heated enclosures, but also feature a device that notifies workers whenever a baby is placed inside. Emergency personnel are to remove the baby from the box within five minutes of the notification, and the child is then cared for and placed into the hands of Child Protective Services.
Monica Kelsey of the organization Safe Haven Baby Boxes believes the boxes are beneficial because mothers who give up their newborn often don’t want their face to be seen, and sometimes they might leave the baby and run without anyone knowing the child is there. With the baby box law, emergency medical service (EMS) workers are notified immediately and arrive within minutes.
“Our research found that some women want complete anonymity and are dropping off their newborns at the doors of fire stations and hospitals without doing the face to face interaction,” the Safe Haven Baby Boxes website outlines. “In one situation, a newborn baby boy was placed at the entrance of a hospital in a cardboard box, and when the child was finally found, the child had frozen to death and was deceased.”
The cause is near and dear to Kelsey as she herself was abandoned as a baby, and now serves as a firefighter. Her mother, who was 17 and had been raped, had initially sought an abortion, but could not bring herself to end her child’s life. She instead decided to leave the baby at a local hospital, and Kelsey was soon adopted into a loving family.
“I just praise God that my birth mother was strong enough to walk out of the abortion clinic,” Kelsey told reporters in 2013.
As previously reported, earlier this year, the Coolspring Township Volunteer Fire Department in Indiana received an alert that an infant had been left in its safe haven box, and firefighters arrived within minutes to find a baby girl inside, umbilical cord still attached.
“We don’t know the situation, but to be strong enough to make this choice is wonderful. They had to choose something very hard and they chose right,” Lt. Chuck Kohler told reporters.
A baby was also left at the fire station in 2017, and was named baby Hope by those who arrived on the scene. She was placed with a family one month later and was soon adopted.
According to Safe Haven Baby Boxes, 3,543 babies were surrendered in baby boxes nationwide in 2017. Over 200 babies have been safely left at Michigan hospitals and other locations since 2001 through its Safe Delivery of Newborns Law.

ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP TELLS JEWISH HOST BEN SHAPIRO: THOSE "OUTSIDE OF THE EXPLICIT CHRISTIAN FAITH CAN BE SAVED"

ROMAN CATHOLIC BISHOP TELLS 
JEWISH HOST BEN SHAPIRO: 
THOSE "OUTSIDE OF THE EXPLICIT CHRISTIAN FAITH CAN BE SAVED" 
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
 
ChristianNews.net
In a video released on Sunday, Roman Catholic bishop Robert Barron of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles told popular conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, who identifies with Orthodox Judaism, that those “outside of the explicit Christian faith can be saved” by following their conscience, or in Shapiro’s case, “following the commandments of the Law sincerely.” He pointed to the teachings of the Second Vatican Council as his basis.
“I feel like I lead a pretty good life, a very religiously-based life, in which I try to keep not just the 10 Commandments, but a solid 603 other commandments as well. And I spend an awful lot of my time promulgating what I would consider Judeo-Christian virtues, particularly in western societies,” Shapiro told Barron during a “Sunday Special” episode.
“So, what’s the Catholic view of me? Am I basically [in trouble] here?” he asked.
“No,” Barron replied, stating that while “Christ is the privileged route” as per John 3:16, the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) “clearly teaches that someone outside of the explicit Christian faith can be saved.”
“[T]hey’re saved through the grace of Christ indirectly received,” he stated. “So, I mean, the grace is coming from Christ, but it might be received according to your conscience—if you’re following your conscience sincerely, or in your case, you’re following the commandments of the Law sincerely.”
The Lumen Gentium of 1964 as published by the Vatican reads, “Those also can attain to salvation who through no fault of their own do not know the Gospel of Christ or His Church, yet sincerely seek God and moved by grace strive by their deeds to do His will as it is known to them through the dictates of conscience. Nor does Divine Providence deny the helps necessary for salvation to those who, without blame on their part, have not yet arrived at an explicit knowledge of God and with His grace strive to live a good life.”
“Yeah, you can be saved,” Barron again affirmed, stating that even atheists “of good will” can go to Heaven.
“John Henry Newman said that the conscience is the aboriginal vicar of Christ in the soul. It’s a very interesting characterization, that it is, in fact, the voice of Christ—if He’s the logos made flesh, He’s the divine mind or reason made flesh—that when I follow my conscience, I’m following Him, whether I know it explicitly or not,” he explained.
Shapiro then asked Barron if Roman Catholicism is “act-based or faith-based,” noting that Judaism is “all about what you do in this life and that earns you points in Heaven,” while Christianity is about believing in “the Way, the Truth and the Life.”
“I would say that it’s love-based. God is love. God so loved the world that He sent His only Son. We’re being drawn into the divine love,” Barron responded. “Now, do we have to accept that love as an act of faith? Of course. So, God makes this great offer in Christ. Is it accepted in faith? Yeah. Aquinas said faith is the door of the spiritual life; without faith you can’t get into the spiritual life. That means a trust in the divine love.”
He said that men are to be fully engaged in response to the love, which begins with grace.
“God invites us now to respond body and soul—everything we’ve got—in love to the love that He’s offered us,” Barron stated. “So, I’d put it that way. It’s grace, and then cooperation with grace, which manifests itself in a life of love.”
Barron continued by presenting the questions “What gets me to Heaven?” and “What is Heaven?” He answered his question by stating that Heaven is love.
“Paul says that three things that last: faith, hope, and love, but the greatest of these is love. Because in Heaven, faith fades away. I don’t need faith anymore; I’m seeing. In Heaven, hope fades away. Who needs to hope? You’ve got it. But love endures, because love is what Heaven is,” he said. “What are you going to do all day in Heaven? That’s what Heaven is, is the act of love.”
Gendron
Mike Gendron of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministries, a former longtime Roman Catholic, lamented Barron’s response to Shapiro’s question about salvation.
“This Catholic bishop is deceiving people,” he told Christian News Network on Wednesday. “It’s tragic that people like him are in a place of authority in the Catholic Church and they are misleading Roman Catholics about life’s most important issue, and that is, ‘What must I do to be saved?’”
“[I]n Galatians 3, we read that anyone attempts to be saved by following the Law places himself under a curse because no one can obey the Law perfectly,” he said. “In fact, in James 2:10, it says that if you obey the whole Law and yet stumble at one part, you are guilty of breaking the entire Law.”
Gendron noted that the Bible is also clear in regard to atheism, as he pointed to 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9, which says that those who “know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ … shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord.”
When asked what Barron should have told Shapiro, Gendron explained that the Bible teaches that God demands perfection for entrance into Heaven, but all have sinned, or violated the Law of God. Christ’s substitutionary death for sinners is the only means by which men can be forgiven of their transgressions and saved from the wrath of God.
“In 2 Corinthians 5:21 we read, that Jesus, who knew no sin, became sin for us so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him,” Gendron outlined. “He (Barron) should have told Ben that the only way anyone can enter Heaven is to have their sins completely forgiven through the substitutionary death of Christ, and the only way into Heaven is through the righteousness of Christ because God’s righteousness demands perfect righteousness to enter into Heaven.”
“But not once did he mention that,” Gendron sorrowed. “It was all about this nebulous ‘love.’ He mentioned that God is love, but He never once said that God is holy and righteous and just, and that He must punish sin. … [His words] leave the listener woefully deceived that his sins can be forgiven by following his conscience and believing that God is love.”
He said that the words of every man should be tested against the Scriptures, and that includes those who listened to the interview with Barron.
“God has given us one infallible source for absolute truth, and that is His inspired, authoritative Word. We are to use His Word to test every man’s teaching,” Gendron outlined. “And that’s the principle given in Acts 17:11 when the apostle Paul was preaching in the synagogues in Berea. And as he was preaching, he noticed that the listeners were testing his teaching by studying the Scriptures daily.”
“And that’s my exhortation for all Roman Catholics,” he said. “Don’t believe any religious teaching unless it conforms to the authority of God’s Word.”
“Jesus Christ said, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’ He is the way for those who are lost. He is the truth for those who are deceived. And He is the life for those who are dead in their sin,” Gendron declared. “If anyone wants to be saved, they must look to Christ, and trust Him alone for their salvation.”

ISLAMIC STATE CHRISTMAS GREETING: 
"DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HOME BECAUSE WE ARE THIRSTY FOR YOUR BLOOD"
BY ROBERT SPENCER

This image of Santa Claus kneeling beside a jihadi who is presumably about to behead him is the epitome of savagery, but to the Islamic State jihadis themselves it is the epitome of righteousness: they believe that Christianity is a twisted, hijacked version of the true religion of Islam, and that they have a divine mandate to execute the wrath of Allah upon the unbelievers: “Fight them, and Allah will punish them by your hands…” (Qur’an 9:14).

“ISIS supporters ‘rejoice’ after gun rampage in Strasbourg days after fanatics posted a picture of Father Christmas kneeling in front of a jihadist,” by Miranda Aldersley, Mailonline, December 12, 2018 (thanks to the Geller Report):
ISIS supporters have celebrated last night’s fatal shooting near a Christmas market in Strasbourg.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the deadly attack in the French city, but ISIS fanatics have boasted that it was carried out ‘days after our threats’.
Rita Katz, director of SITE – which monitors terror activity – tweeted that extremists were telling others to ‘rejoice’ and ‘give good news’ after the shooting, which claimed two lives and left another ‘brain dead’.
Supporters of the terror group had recently posted a picture of Father Christmas kneeling in front of a masked jihadist, Katz pointed out….
ISIS supporters have recently been circulating posters inciting attacks and threatening the West.
One poster from just days before the attack shows a Father Christmas figure kneeling on the ground in front of a Christian cross dripping in blood as a masked Jihadi prepares to behead him.
It says: ‘Do not leave your home because we are thirsty for your blood’.
Another poster offers a rallying cry to lone wolf terrorists.
It says: ‘If you are unable to make a bomb or get a gun or bullet, then put your efforts into finding the kaffir alone, the American or the French infidel or any of their allies and smash his head with a stone’
It continues: ‘or cut his neck with a knife, or hit him with your car, or throw him from a high place, or strangle him, or put poison for him, but never give up.
‘Burn his house car or trade or destroy his farm, and if you are unable, spit in his face.’…

FRANCE: WOMAN GETS RAPE & DEATH THREATS AFTER SAYING "ISLAM HAS TO SUBMIT TO FRENCH LAWS" 
BY ROBERT SPENCER

 “Islam has to submit to French laws, humour, reason and any form of 
criticism just like any other ideology, sect or religion.” Yes. All 
should be accountable to the same laws. This should be taken for granted
 by all French authorities as a requirement for living in France and a 
prerequisite for entering it as an immigrant. But it isn’t. And that is 
an indication that France is in an advanced state of degeneration, and 
is likely not to last much longer as anything resembling a free society.

Women who SPEAK about Islam in France are threatened with Rape & Death!

Do Americans understand this is happening here in the USA too?

Not only do Jihadists threaten my life for criticizing Islam BUT Leftist media libels me & helps Terrorists locate me and my loved ones - WHY?
 
“Woman threatened with murder after saying Islam should submit to French laws and criticism,” Voice of Europe, December 21, 2018 (thanks to the Geller Report):
Moroccan-French journalist Zineb El Rhazoui says she has received death and rape threats for saying “innoccous” [sic] things like: “Islam has to submit to French laws, humour, reason and any form of criticism just like any other ideology, sect or religion”.
According to the former cartoonist of Charlie Hebdo “There is no valid reason for Islam to be an exception”.
