It, (False Prophet), exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. Revelation 13:12-13 NIV
People will lose their human dignity without values enshrined in Christianity and other world religions, without moral standards that have taken millennia to take shape, President Vladimir Putin. "We believe that it is natural and appropriate to defend those values. Any minority deserves respect for its distinctive identity, but the rights of the majority must not be questioned," Putin said during a meeting of the Valdai discussion club.
"Policies are pursued that put large families and same-sex partnerships in the same category, belief in God and belief in Satan. Excesses of political correctness reach the point where there are serious discussions on the registration of parties that have propaganda of pedophilia as their objective.

U.S. is “no longer a Christian nation” but is also a nation of others, including Muslims and nonbelievers. The comments have been recently recirculating on Internet blogs. “Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers,” Obama said during a June 2007 speech available on YouTube.
Culture Shift in Christian America Good for Gospel?
Dr. Russell Moore is the new head of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. The ERLC has been a major force in engaging Christians to fight the culture wars in the public arena and through politics. In his inaugural address, Dr. Moore took a tone that's different from the past. He suggested that there's no such thing as a "moral majority," that the Bible Belt is collapsing, and that the Religious Right --at its worst-- became "a kind of prosperity Gospel, promising the American Dream, plus Jesus."
