Arlene Foster attends ecumenical Remembrance service in Romanist chapel

The DUP’s gradual, yet continual, decline from its former Biblical standards continued even over Remembrance Sunday, which this year also marked the 100th anniversary of the Armistice at the end of what became known as the First World War.

The party’s leader, Arlene Foster (pictured, top), a Fermanagh woman, was in attendance at an ecumenical Remembrance service in the Roman Catholic church in Enniskillen, St Michael’s, on the evening of Remembrance Sunday.

And party MP, Jeffrey Donaldson, was in attendance at an ecumenical service where the Papist Archbishop of Armagh Eamon Martin was the guest speaker.

That service was held in the second biggest hub of ecumenism (the biggest being the ghastly Corrymeela Community on the north coast) in Northern Ireland, St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast.

At both meetings the chief preacher was an architect of Romish deceit and Papal priestcraft, with the speaker in the Enniskillen service being ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly.

Among the allegedly Protestant ministers who took part in the service, and who have all been photographed at the front of the chapel beside where the blasphemous Romish Mass is offered up, was Rev Kenneth Hall (pictured, below with ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly), Dean of the Clogher Diocese and minister of St Macartin’s Church of Ireland Cathedral in Enniskillen.

He is a habitual ecumenist and you can read of his devotion to compromise with Rome by clicking here and of a service he held in St Macartin’s Cathedral honouring a Jesuit priest in the process of being sainted by the Pope by clicking here.

Also taking part, fresh from preaching from the Apocrypha in a Remembrance Sunday service in St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen that morning, was the Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, the Right Eejit John McDowell.

Another Protestant traitor added into the mix was Rev David Cupples (pictured, below), minister of Enniskillen Presbyterian Church. Rev David Cupples last year took several months off his duties to complete a Papist pilgrimage called the Camino de Santiago.

And completing the concoction of clerical compromisers on stage was ‘Rev’ Lorna Dreaning (1 Timothy 2:12), the recently appointed ‘minister’ of Enniskillen Methodist Church, wasting little time in laying her ecumenical cards on the table.

Add into the mix reports that other clergy, Orangemen and representatives of the Royal British Legion were in attendance and you have a very confused picture inside that den of Romanism.

This service was trumpeted as a sign of great civility between Protestants and Catholics, but it is in fact a sign of Protestants being deceived by the wiles of Rome and failing to keep themselves unstained from false worship.

When the world at large thinks a Church service is wonderful, one must be very sceptical.

Jesus reminds us of this when speaking in John 15:18-19. He says: “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”

And what of Arlene Foster and her presence?

Given she is a member of the Church of Ireland, her local Bishop, the man who told her it was ok to go to a GAA match on a Sunday, is Right Eejit John McDowell and he was complicit in this ungodly show last week.

However, we are all accountable for our own actions before God, though a minister bears a mighty responsibility for the souls he is charged with providing guidance to.

Arlene Foster continues to eschew fundamental Biblical Christianity, something which her party was founded upon and which many of its members would still claim to support.

The Bible says we are not to share in worship with those who are spiritually unclean, such as the Church of Rome.

Ephesians 5:11 says: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

We have received a few comments in recent months commenting on whether or not Arlene Foster is a Christian. Our understanding is she would say she is and therefore we must take her at her word.

So, given that situation, she ought to know a great deal better than to consort with Popery in such a flagrant way, or indeed in any way.

Rome’s false gospel of works-based salvation and its manifold other blasphemies, such as prayer to Mary and to so-called ‘Saints’, prayer for the dead, the Mass, the titles the Pope takes on himself, idolatry and the fictional creation of purgatory, are vile offences against God and His inspired Word.

It is little wonder Ulster is in the sorry spiritual state it is in when you see representatives of much of the major so-called Protestant institutions in our country participating in such a manner.

The same can be said of Sir Jeffrey Donaldson, though there was nothing distinguishing in his attending a Remembrance service with Eamon Martin taking a leading role.

To attend a meeting in the den of ecumenical iniquity such as St Anne’s Cathedral is bad enough, but when a Papist is taking the pulpit? What a dreadful mess.

Our country will never see revival if Christians continue to look to the likes of Arlene Foster and Jeffrey Donaldson for their help.

In 1921, the Protestants of Ulster were saved from Rome rule by the formation of Northern Ireland.

However, as we look at the untold damage the ecumenical churches have done to our country and as we look at the rising tide of voters choosing to back those who to this day support and indeed celebrate the murder of Protestants to advance their evil cause, we can see the judgment of God coming upon Ulster.

If the people of Ulster do not turn back to God with all their heart, if they do not cease to mingle seed with Popery, then this land will be taken from us.

There is much more than an echo of the words of Joshua as he addressed the children of Israel shortly before his passing.

Joshua 23:12-16 says: “Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: Know for a certainty that the Lord your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you. And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof. Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the Lord your God promised you; so shall the Lord bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you. When ye have transgressed the covenant of the Lord your God, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath given unto you.”

Arlene Foster and Jeffrey Donaldson would do well to pay heed to those words of Joshua and so would all who profess Christ in this country.

Where do your first loyalties lie?

Is it with the DUP? The Church of Ireland? The Presbyterian Church? The Royal British Legion? The Orange Order?

Or do your first loyalties lie with the almighty, all powerful, all seeing, all knowing, prayer hearing and prayer answering God of heaven?

He is the one true and living God and we must serve him with all of our being.

We would do well to remember the words of God to Solomon.

1 Chronicles 28:9: “And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.”

Arlene Foster congratulates lesbian Scottish Tory leader and her ‘partner’ on birth of child

Genesis 1:27-28: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

Genesis 2:18, 21-22: “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”

It is a foundational principle of God’s creation that we should “be fruitful, and multiply”.

It is also a foundational principle of God’s creation that he made man and woman to be different from each other, and that he made them for each other.

It is a biological fact that two people of the same gender CANNOT “be fruitful, and multiply” in the natural way. Therefore, unnatural methods must be sought.

And that is just what has happened in the case of Scottish Conservative Party leader Ruth Davidson and her ‘partner’, Jen Wilson.

We are not intimately aware of how the process was worked out, nor do we desire to know. However, what we do know, and what any sane person would concede, is that two women, or two men, cannot create new life.

Yet DUP leader Arlene Foster (pictured, top), a professing Christian, has seen fit to congratulate two lesbians, acting wholly outside the will of God, on such an occasion as this.

Taking to Twitter to express her delight at and support for such ungodliness, Arlene Foster said: “New life is wonderful. We can all remember our first cuddle. Many congratulations.”

As we said before, the natural order created by God is a foundational principle of the Bible. It is contained in the first two chapters of the Bible in the creation story.

There should be no professing Christian who is not fully aware of this, and you can be certain Arlene Foster is indeed absolutely aware of this.

Yet she has chosen to publicly act in a way that repudiates this most basic Biblical tenet.

Of course she has previously chosen to do the same.

Back in June, we highlighted her attendance at an event celebrating the ‘contribution’ of various sodomites to society in Northern Ireland, while she also attended a Muslim religious celebration, even receiving a Muslim henna tattoo on her hand. She attended a GAA match, an organisation which to this day boasts many trophies and grounds named after Irish republican Roman Catholic terrorists, on a Sunday, claiming she had received the permission of her bishop. Given she is a member of the Church of Ireland and lives in County Fermanagh, that would presumably mean her bishop is the enthusiastic ecumenist, the Right Eejit John McDowell, hardly a great person from whom to take direction.

One of her party’s MLAs, Paula Bradley (pictured, above with Arlene Foster), co-sponsored the same sodomite-exalting event that Arlene Foster addressed and went one further by adding her name as a sponsor to a reprehensible drag queen event at Stormont, with no apparent condemnation from her leader, ie Arlene Foster.

And now she has given her blessing to the ungodly notion of a same-sex couple having children together.

We will remind Arlene Foster again of what the Bible has to say about this.

Matthew 19:4-6: “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

A man shall leave his father and his mother, Jesus said, and shall cleave to his wife.

Jesus did not countenance or allow for a union between two people of the same gender, nor did he countenance or allow for an individual having two parents of the same gender.

We have seen many comments from the deluded, the deceived and the deceivers who would try to claim that Jesus would have been ok with, nay, supported same sex unions, despite there being not one shred of evidence to support such a bald assertion.

Here we have a concrete case of Jesus indicating that the only true and proper marriage union and parental arrangement being that of a man and a woman.

He then follows that comment up by saying: “What God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” Jesus, in this instance, was talking about divorce, but it could as easily and as well be applied to this situation with regards the union of man and woman. That which God has instituted ought not to be disregarded, changed or trampled over at the whim of the currently trendy opinion.

Why Arlene Foster felt the need to even comment on the birth of this child is not entirely clear, perhaps she is too keen to cosy up with the Conservative Party as they are political allies in Westminster.

However, Arlene Foster, as a professing Christian, ought to have her first alliance to God.

1 Samuel 12:24: “Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.”

King’s Church leader Glen Mitchell ‘hugely disappointed’ Ards Town Hall won’t be lit up for sodomite ‘Pride’

Lamentations 2:14: “Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.”

The leader of an easy-believist, charismatic church in Bangor has expressed his great disappointment that a public building in a nearby town will not be lit in the rainbow colours to honour sodomites from the borough.

Glen Mitchell, who is the lead pastor of King’s Church, based in the County Down town, took to Twitter to outline his dismay that a local council move to light up Newtownards Town Hall in a celebration of sodomy had been voted down by a majority of councillors present at the North Down and Ards Council monthly meeting for September.

Glen Mitchell has already proven his aversion to abiding by the Bible by publicly affirming his disagreement with the Biblical account of creation.

And he has further cemented his attitude by saying it was wrong not to light up a town hall in honour of those whose conduct is called an “abomination” and “against nature” by God.

Taking to Twitter to express his dismay at councillors taking a stand against the most fashionable sin of the day – sodomy – Glen Mitchell said: “Hugely disappointed by this, although unsurprised. A gesture like the one suggested threatens nothing and no one.”

He then followed this up a short time later with another tweet, referencing how professing Christians had contacted him to express “surprise” at his previous tweet, though that seems like a fairly soft response to his ludicrous comment.

Explaining himself, Glen Mitchell said that the Area and North Down “borough isn’t a church and shouldn’t be run like one”, that such “gestures build desperately needed trust and understanding between opposing groups”, before concluding his risible self-justification by saying that “Christianity thrives at the margins of society, not when it’s central”.

All three points are very weak indeed and fail to stand up to scrutiny, indeed, they barely stand up at all.

His first point that the borough “shouldn’t be run” like a church is a strange one for a supposed religious leader to make.

Surely he should want the district or borough to be run in a way that would be pleasing to God? Or should godlessness such as sodomy be allowed to run rampant in society? In fact, the pride of place sodomy takes in so many areas of modern society is largely attributable to the shameful downgrade of the standard of so-called religious leadership in our country.

The Bible says that our rulers have a responsibility to act against sinfulness and take measures to restrain it.

Romans 13:3: “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil.”

Not only that, but we have an example given to us in Judges for our instruction as to the consequences of a lack of leadership.

Judges 18:7, 27-28: “Then the five men departed, and came to Laish, and saw the people that were therein, how they dwelt careless, after the manner of the Zidonians, quiet and secure; and there was no magistrate in the land, that might put them to shame in any thing; and they were far from the Zidonians, and had no business with any man. And they took the things which Micah had made, and the priest which he had, and came unto Laish, unto a people that were at quiet and secure: and they smote them with the edge of the sword, and burnt the city with fire. And there was no deliverer, because it was far from Zidon, and they had no business with any man; and it was in the valley that lieth by Beth-rehob. And they built a city, and dwelt therein.”

The people of Laish “dwelt careless” and “there was no magistrate in the land, that might put them to shame in any thing”.

This was a land which had nobody to enforce the laws of good and evil on its people, everyone was allowed to do as they pleased.

They took no measures to protect themselves, their city was not well guarded, they had no alliances with any of the peoples living nearby, and look at the consequences, they were easily routed and destroyed.

Leadership needs to be strong and pleasing to God, and indeed Glen Mitchell appears to want the members of that council to go against their own beliefs and vote for something which is gravely displeasing to God.

Acts 5:29 tells us of the danger of such a move. It says: “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.”

Glen Mitchell seemingly wants those councillors to obey men rather than God. What a sad position to occupy.

His second point that lighting up the council building in honour of sodomy is equally misinformed, though we give him some credit for pointing out that Christianity and sodomy are opposing positions.

Luke 16:13 outlines that. It says: “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

However, to say that Glen Mitchell shows a misguided attitude is an understatement.

The Bible flatly condemns homosexuality, this is an issue we have covered on many occasions and readers are invited to look at Romans 1:22-27 and Leviticus 18:22 to get a flavour of God’s rejection of such conduct.

Christians ought not to be coming to terms with homosexuality but rather should be constant in pointing out not only that God rejects it, but that salvation is freely available to the homosexual, if they would, as every other sinner, which is all of us, turn from their sin.

2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us that when we are saved we are changed. It says: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

We are not to compromise with sin, but rather to reprove it and implore those who are unsaved to turn from it.

However, Glen Mitchell is pursuing a line of thought which seeks to encourage the cause of sodomy, which is rebellion against God.

His third reason for his unscriptural stance is perhaps the weakest of all, saying that Christianity thrives when on the margins.

What type of Christian wouldn’t want Christianity to be at the very centre of our society and civil and public life?

What type of Christian wouldn’t want the majority of the people in society to be saved and using whatever position they have to better advance the cause of Christ?

What type of Christian wouldn’t want elected representatives to defend the cause of Christ publicly?

Instead, he chooses to attack those, no doubt many of them professing Christians, who took a stand for the teachings of the Bible.

Proverbs 14:34 reminds us that a country is lifted high when it follows God. It says: “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”

Why would Glen Mitchell not want the nation to be exalted?

When countries departed from God, that was when judgment came. One must only read the book of Judges to see the repeated story of Israel departing from God and then falling into the hands of their enemies to see that illustrated clearly.

Northern Ireland is suffering today because of sin, both from our religious leaders and our political leaders.

You have the leaders of the Church of Ireland and Irish Presbyterianism, the two largest so-called Protestant churches, meeting the Pope and engaging in all manner of ecumenical compromise.

And you have the leader of political unionism, Arlene Foster, speaking at a sodomite event in Belfast and compromising with Islam.

You have not one professing Christian willing to back Jim Allister of the TUV when he stood against sodomite pardons being introduced in Northern Ireland, be they from the DUP, UUP or the Alliance Party.

Indeed, the Alliance Party, many of whose members claim to be Christians, including their leader Naomi Long, were the ones who brought this motion before the Ards and North Down Council.

What a sorry state our land is in and Glen Mitchell is encouraging another retrograde step be taken? What a shameful attitude.

His comment reeks of the nonsensical guff often propagated by such easy-believists and charismatics who like to talk about religion being “radical” and “counter-cultural”, trying to make it sound like some sort of hipster minority interest.

Pleading forgiveness of God, righteous living and faithful adhering to and preaching of the Bible from our religious leaders, political leaders and ordinary Christians are the route to revival.

If that is achieved, then God will be central in our land, and not confined to the margins.

Let us devote ourselves afresh to God, to pleasing Him and pray He will bless our land once more with revival.

2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Get your Muslim tattoo with Causeway Coast Vineyard

Causeway Coast Vineyard is truly a leading figure in the charismatic, ecumenical and easy-believist movements in Northern Ireland.

And it has taken another remarkable step in its rejection of true Christianity at a recent family “Summer Street Party” it held in Coleraine, as it advertised one of the ‘attractions’ on offer as being “henna and kids tattoos”.

The subject of henna tattoos is one we addressed briefly when we examined DUP leader Arlene Foster’s unChristian diary entries in June as she visited Belfast’s Islamic Centre as part of their Eid celebrations before speaking at an event honouring sodomites in Northern Ireland.

While at the Islamic Centre, Arlene Foster got a henna tattoo, and you can see her smiling as she receives it below.

As we said at that time, the non-permanent marking (an example of which is featured at the top of this article) has its roots in the polytheistic religion of Hinduism, but has more recently been adopted by Muslims.

Also known as ‘mehendi’, it is originally a Hindu practice and its use “is described in the earliest Hindu Vedic ritual books”, according to Wikipedia.

So it is something advocated in the Hindu ‘bible’.

Wikipedia continues by saying they are “intended to be a symbolic representation of the outer and the inner sun. Vedic customs are centred on the idea of awakening the ‘inner light’.”

So it is something used as part of sun worship, an utterly unbiblical pursuit which is a key part of Hindu worship and which is condemned in the strongest possible terms by God.

God pronounced the most fierce of judgments on such blasphemy and apostasy by the children of Israel.

Jeremiah 8:1-3 says: “At that time, saith the Lord, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves: And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth. And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the Lord of hosts.”

The practice has been adopted by some Muslims and is now used fairly widely. Islam is of course a pagan religion and denies the deity of Christ, saying he was just another prophet like Muhammad.

This denies the gospel of the Bible and removes the hope of salvation from its adherents as the only way to heaven is through the blood of Jesus Christ.

Isn’t it then a strange thing for Causeway Coast Vineyard, supposedly a Christian fellowship, to be specifically advertising (see below)? Indeed, isn’t it a strange thing for them to be doing at all?

The Bible warns against the marking of the body in any event, though the tattoos on offer for children at the event will undoubtedly be those which are easily washed off.

This is what the Bible has to say about the marking of the body.

It says in Leviticus 19:28: “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”

That is fairly straightforward, isn’t it?

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 instructs us that our body belongs to God and we ought not to mar or mark that which belongs to God. Those verses say: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

So why is the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church advertising not just tattoos, but henna tattoos, markings synonymous with pagan religions such as Hinduism and Islam?

That, of course, is a question for Causeway Coast Vineyard to answer.

It would not be the first pagan religion to be embraced by Causeway Coast Vineyard as its former leader, Alan Scott (pictured, below), said he was “all in” with the Pope of Rome. You can see our article on the matter by clicking here.

Then of course you have Peter Lynas, the leader of the Evangelical Alliance and a senior figure in Causeway Coast Vineyard.

Just last week he was bemoaning the fact there are still actual Protestants in the country who are opposed to compromise with the pagan corruption of Christianity which is the Roman Catholic Church.

He dutifully jumped to the defence of Ulster Unionist Party MLA Robbie Butler, a deacon in Maghaberry Elim, saying it was “sad” that Protestants declared the outrageous decision of that professing Christian to meet with the Pope during his recent visit to Dublin.

Peter Lynas also previously stated how interested he was to hear what the Pope has to say on moral matters and issued a soppy valedictory statement following the death of arch-ecumenist Billy Graham, the man who told Roman Catholics coming to him for guidance to stay in the darkness from which they were seeking to break free.

And it was Peter Lynas, among others, who sought to promote this ‘Summer Street Party’ on his Twitter page, saying “this should be awesome”.

Mimicking paganism may be “awesome” to Peter Lynas, Causeway Coast Vineyard and the Evangelical Alliance, but it is most assuredly not in the eyes of God.

Deuteronomy 12:29-31: “When the Lord thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land; Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods…”

Let us strive to remain faithful to God and avoid any practices which are opposed by His Word and remain a truly separated people.

DUP continues its downgrade by co-sponsoring drag queen event

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

Deuteronomy 22:5: “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.”

Towards the end of June, we at ‘Protestant Revival’ highlighted the distressing moves by DUP leader Arlene Foster which seemed to be geared towards placating various enemies of God.

First on her schedule of compromise was attending a Muslim religious festival (pictured, below), before she attended a GAA final in County Monaghan on a Sunday, an Irish republican organisation in which many of the clubs, stadia and trophies take their name from IRA terrorists.

And she concluded her whistlestop tour of compromise by speaking at an event celebrating the ‘contribution’ of LGBT people to Northern Irish society.

As we pointed out at that time, all this seemed to be a means of ingratiating herself with the murderers or murderer apologists of Sinn Fein with a view to getting their power-sharing government back up and running. Pleasing God, sadly, particularly for a party rooted in true Biblical Protestantism, did not seem to be high on their list of priorities.

Now we see further departure from the party’s evangelical roots as one of their MLAs (Member of the Legislative Assembly) acted as a co-sponsor to an event at Stormont (the would-be seat of power in Northern Ireland, were our Assembly functioning), entitled Alternative Queer Ulster.

It was being held as part of the ‘Pride’ week, a celebration of all manner of immorality encompassed within the LGBT+ umbrella.

Speaking at the event was an individual who goes by the name of Electra La C*** – a drag queen.

We don’t actually know what the final word of her name is, as both the Belfast NewsLetter and Belfast Telegraph opted to star it out, so we must assume it is a word not suitable for repetition.

That really says it all about this character, that their ‘stage name’ is so vulgar it cannot be reproduced in a newspaper.

Not only that, this drag queen notoriously wore a tiara dipped in HIV positive blood in a ‘Pride’ parade in Belfast two years ago.

However, the DUP’s Paula Bradley (pictured, top, with Arlene Foster) saw fit to subject our parliament buildings to such depravity.

Not only that, Paula Bradley also saw fit to put her name as a co-sponsor to the sodomite event ran by LGBT news outlet ‘Pink News’ at Stormont; the event which Arlene Foster addressed.

We must state that Paula Bradley, in a fairly recent Belfast Telegraph interview, said she was “not a practising Christian”, so she is not going against any publicly expressed belief.

And we must also clarify the policy surrounding sponsoring an event at Stormont to avoid the accusation of misleading anyone.

For an event to go ahead, three MLAs must sign up to the event. The first is the host, with two further co-sponsors adding their support. There must be cross-community backing for such events, so one nationalist and one unionist must support the staging of each event.

Paula Bradley was not the host, but would have been fully aware that this event was called Alternative Queer Ulster. She would also have been fully aware that such an event would be offensive to a great many DUP voters and a great many DUP members.

However, our concern is with the DUP’s tolerance of such vile events being given the endorsement of one of its elected representatives.

When questioned about the event by the NewsLetter, the DUP said that it was up to the host, Clare Bailey of the Green Party, to ensure the event would “comply fully with all Assembly policies”.

The event may have complied with Assembly policies, drag queens are not illegal after all, but the event certainly didn’t comply with God’s Word.

Their statement said: “DUP MLAs act as sponsor and co-sponsor to many different events held at Parliament Buildings.

“The Primary Sponsor for any event in Parliament Buildings is the person responsible for the event under the Assembly’s guidelines.

“Ms Bradley is one of the co-sponsors and as such was not privy to specific details, including participants. She is acting in good faith that the event will comply fully with all Assembly policies.”

The NewsLetter added the following: “The DUP was not withdrawing its sponsorship, the party added.”

So the DUP, which claimed Paula Bradley wasn’t fully aware of the type of characters attending the event, then says that, despite the utter depravity of this event having been clearly highlighted, confirmed it would sponsor this celebration of sin regardless.

What a disgraceful departure from the old days of the DUP, which campaigned to ‘Save Ulster From Sodomy’. Now it is sponsoring events supporting it!

How this demonstrates how we must stay close to God and His Word, for such situations can come about through nothing other than ignoring the commands of the Almighty.

In the verses at the top of our article, it is clearly demonstrated that a man wearing women’s clothing is an “abomination unto the Lord”.

Likewise, it is clearly demonstrated that people were created either male or female, there is no grey area in this.

And our bodies are to be used to glorify God, and that cannot be done when they are being used to carry out acts which are against God’s natural order.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

The DUP are playing a very dangerous game in provoking God in such a way.

They have definitely gone backward, as the children of Israel did in the days of Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 7:23-24: “But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”

Let this not be fully said of the DUP.

There is still time for this party, once led by the great man of God that was Rev Ian Paisley, to roll back on its moves towards outright rejection of God and His Word.

However, the time is short, and the days are evil and the pressure will continue to build on them, from both within and without, to cave in to such grave and wicked sins.

What a wonderful promise, though, we are offered in God’s Word, that a heartfelt, earnest and truly penitent return to Him will reap great rewards.

2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Muslim festivals and sodomite celebrations – Arlene Foster’s diary for June

Proverbs 13:20: “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

The leader of the largest political party in Northern Ireland, the DUP, which was founded by Free Presbyterian minister Rev Ian Paisley, a man used mightily of God, has had a very unChristian schedule for the second half of June.

Arlene Foster began her companionship with fools on Saturday past by endorsing the pagan religion of Islam when she attended the Eid celebration, held by Muslims to mark the end of Ramadan, during which adherents fast between sunrise and sunset.

Islam is a religion which outright denies the divinity of Christ. Instead, they claim he is just another prophet, like Mohammed, pointing the way to Allah, their name for God.

Of course, there are many other criticisms which could be made of Islam, including the worryingly large number of believers who think killing non Muslims is legitimate, nay, commendable.

However, it is sufficient to highlight Islam’s blasphemous view of Jesus in order to condemn it as a false religion and, therefore, one which Arlene Foster should steer clear of.

Rather than that, she attended the big Muslim celebration in south Belfast on Saturday past and even allowed herself to receive a henna ‘tattoo’ (it is a non-permanent marking), a marking with its roots in the polytheistic Hindu faith, but which has been adopted by some Muslims in more recent times. The application of this tattoo is pictured at the top of this article.

Readers from outside Northern Ireland may not be entirely familiar with the current political situation here, but Arlene Foster’s party, a Protestant party, is involved in a power-sharing government in Belfast with the murderers and murderer apologists of Sinn Fein, a Roman Catholic party inextricably linked with the barbarous terrorist organisation, the IRA.

The wisdom of such a venture has been dramatically undermined in particular in the past 18 months as that government collapsed, amid Sinn Fein calls, among others, that gay marriage should be legalised in Northern Ireland. The DUP, which still has a strong Christian influence (though even its staunchest supporters would surely admit it is a far cry from what it once was in its faithfulness to God’s Word), is the only political barrier to the legalising of gay marriage in this country.

In that context, the next diary entry of Arlene Foster’s of grave concern is her acquiescence to the sodomy lobby by attending an event promoting “the contribution of the LGBT community n Northern Ireland”.

It is a strange event for the “LGBT community” to be having, given that their squawks are always for “equality”, yet they are happy to have an event singling out the achievements of people who happen to be a sodomite over those involved in heterosexual relationships.

But it is stranger still that a professing Christian such as Arlene Foster (she attends the Church of Ireland) sees fit to attend an event celebrating people whose lifestyle is in direct opposition to God’s ordained natural order.

The issue of homosexuality is one we have visited on a number of occasions lately and it is not one we wish to dwell on at length, but it must be clearly stated that homosexuality is an “abomination” (Leviticus 18:22).

It must also be clearly stated that it is “against nature” and “unseemly” (Romans 1:26,27).

It has been surmised in the Northern Irish daily papers that these efforts at outreach to Muslims and sodomites are an attempt to soften her party’s image.

However, all they are softening is the DUP’s stand for Christ.

We acknowledge there are many who think that ship has already sailed, but these are new departures for the DUP and we are saying to Arlene Foster and the DUP to stop in their tracks and turn back to Christ.

It is argued by the worldly that the route to securing a better lot for the Protestant people in Ulster is to embrace sodomy, gay marriage, abortion and various other reprehensible policies.

However, we can only truly prosper when we turn to Christ and follow Him.

A fine example of a leader turning to his natural enemies in his time of trouble, rather than to God, and suffering dire consequences, can be found in the case of King Ahaz.

It says n 2 Chronicles 28:16-23: “At that time did king Ahaz send unto the kings of Assyria to help him. For again the Edomites had come and smitten Judah, and carried away captives. The Philistines also had invaded the cities of the low country, and of the south of Judah, and had taken Beth-shemesh, and Ajalon, and Gederoth, and Shocho with the villages thereof, and Timnah with the villages thereof, Gimzo also and the villages thereof: and they dwelt there. For the Lord brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel; for he made Judah naked, and transgressed sore against the Lord. And Tilgath-pilneser king of Assyria came unto him, and distressed him, but strengthened him not. For Ahaz took away a portion out of the house of the Lord , and out of the house of the king, and of the princes, and gave it unto the king of Assyria: but he helped him not. And in the time of his distress did he trespass yet more against the Lord: this is that king Ahaz. For he sacrificed unto the gods of Damascus, which smote him: and he said, Because the gods of the kings of Syria help them, therefore will I sacrifice to them, that they may help me. But they were the ruin of him, and of all Israel.”

Arlene Foster has been the subject of incredible levels of abuse over the past 18 months, and, like Ahaz, is at a low ebb and trying desperately to reclaim her former glory, as it were.

Ahaz turned to the king of Assyria, a nation which repeatedly attacked the children of Israel and hated God’s people, to try to save his kingdom.

Arlene Foster is turning to sodomites and Muslims, groups of people who are resolutely opposed to God’s people, to try to save her political supremacy.

Ahaz found that the Assyrian king “distressed him, but strengthened him not”.

Arlene Foster will find the same thing, her cowering before the enemies of God will get her nowhere.

She will find, like Ahaz, that “they were the ruin of him, and of all Israel”.

This was the warning given to the children of Israel just as they were about to enter Canaan and Arlene Foster needs to have these words in her head as she plots the course ahead.

They are found in Joshua 23:6-13: “Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left; That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them: But cleave unto the Lord your God, as ye have done unto this day. For the Lord hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day. One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the Lord your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you. Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the Lord your God. Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: Know for a certainty that the Lord your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you.”

Ulster is under threat from Irish republicanism, Romanism, apostate Protestantism and secularism.

The only safe passage through this storm is with Christ at the helm and His Word as our map.

It is not yet too late for Arlene Foster to pull out of this meeting, it is not yet too late for Arlene Foster to turn to Christ as her Guide.

Please, dear reader, pray that she and our leaders will consult God rather than think tanks or opinion polls, and put their faith and trust in Christ to guide us through.
