(1) World Vision’s Decades-Long Hate Campaign Against Israel |by Luke Moon, The Tower

***There’s a lot to unpack, so don’t miss this article. Here’s the conclusion:

Left unchallenged both internally and externally, World Vision’s campaign to undermine Christian support for Israel will continue to undermine and alienate many of its most loyal donors. Other organizations, like Compassion International and Samaritan’s Purse, are filling the void left by World Vision’s decision to reject evangelism and place politics above providing aid to suffering people. The crisis facing World Vision in Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza provides a unique opportunity for it to drastically change how it works in the region, as well as its antagonism toward Israel and Christian Zionists. Perhaps through this crisis, World Vision will live up to its own commitment to political and theological neutrality.


(2) Hotels are ditching nightstand bibles. The new religion is Wi-Fi

Religious materials, particularly bibles, have been a nightstand staple at American hotels for decades. Yet innkeepers are now ditching holy books for more modern amenities.

A survey conducted by the American Hotel and Lodging Association and hotel research firm STR found that just 46% of American hotel rooms included religious material in rooms, less than half of what it was a decade ago.


(3) Gary Sinise at Pearl Harbor

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of traveling, via American Airlines charter, to Pearl Harbor with over 70 WWII veterans, many survivors of the attack that happened here 75 years ago, December 7, 1941. Many events with these amazing Americans this week, including a LT Dan Band concert on the beach tomorrow night and will have the honor of serving as Grand Marshal of the parade on December 7.

Seen here on the way over with survivor Jack Holder. A great American. God bless these heroes who survived and fought on to win the war, and God bless all who were wounded and gave their lives 75 years ago, here, on “the date that has lived in infamy”. Our countries first battle of a war that we, and our allies, had to win to preserve the freedom of the world. Thankfully, because of the men and women who answered the call, freedom prevailed. It is an honor to be here this week.
