As secular progressives tirelessly attempt to push God, Christianity and Christians to the margins of our culture---Christians find creative ways to push back and turn on the light of God's Truth.
Two years after the film, "God's Not Dead," stunned the secular world by grossing $60.7 million, with a $2 million production budget, the same people are back with "God's Not Dead 2: Surely He's Alive."
The Hollywood Reporter, one of the 2 most influential industry magazines, defines the film as being about a Christian public school teacher who is taken to court for answering a student's question about the similarities of the teachings of Jesus to those of Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandi.
The film, in truth, is about a whole lot more than that.

Muslim students at a German university have seized control of a classroom designated as a "silent room" or study room and converted it into a mosque.
They have erected a wall to segregate genders, are installing feet washing facilities and signs instructing women to "wear the veil---and do not wear perfume."
This is a profile of how multiculturalism destroys.

NASA has instructed its scientists, engineers and support teams to refrain from using the word "Jesus" in any announcements, including private announcements, that appear in the Johnson Space Center newsletter.
A NASA engineer says, "It was shocking to all of us and very frustrating."
The engineer says, "NASA has a long history of respecting religious speech, why wouldn't they allow us to put the name of Jesus in the announcements about the club?"
I will be talking about this, and yesterday's primary election results in New Hampshire on the radio live this morning at 9 AM PST and rebroadcast at 7:30 PM PST. You may join me on the ACN radio network, on your computer or iPhone from anywhere in the world.

Founded in 1860 as a Christian liberal arts college "in the evangelical Protestant tradition," Wheaton College is now embroiled in a debate over which god do we serve?
Tenured Wheaton Professor Larycia Hawkins has said publicly that Christians and Muslims serve the same god.
Because the school took issue with her belief, an elected 6 member faculty committee has now taken issue with the school saying she has been singled out and discrimination has taken place "on the basis of race, gender, and to a lessor extent, marital status."
Franklin Graham, whose parents Billy and Ruth met at Wheaton while both were students, says, "This is no minor issue that should be debated."
Wheaton has made their decision. It will be announced at a press conference tomorrow.

The middle school principal says he's doing away with Valentine's Day to "avoid encroaching on the educational opportunities of others and threatening a culture of tolerance and respect for all."
He also says he's banning celebration of all "dominant holidays"---"including Thanksgiving and Christmas" so the school "can strive for more cultural sensitivity..."
A spokesperson for the school says, "We're sensitive to being inclusive but do not feel these celebrations are important for building a sense of community."
The Star Tribune says, "This touches off a wider debate on school celebrations."
Indeed it does.
