Christian school 'downgraded for failing to invite an imam to lead assembly'

Prophecy Sign:  Christian persecution/marginalization 

Christians that refuse to accept the contemporary world edict of what is to be tolerated and accepted without question, (eg homosexuality, transgenderism, etc), will find that their viewpoints and beliefs will be considered intolerable and will be persecuted for those beliefs.  This will only get worse as the world continues to slide into increasing godlessness as we approach the coming time of Tribulation.

You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. Everyone will hate you because of me. Luke 21:16-17 NIV

Christian school 'downgraded for failing to invite an imam to lead assembly'
A successful Christian school has been warned it is to be downgraded by inspectors and could even face closure after failing to invite a leader from another religion, such as an imam, to lead assemblies, it is claimed. The small independent school in the Home Counties was told it is in breach of new rules intended to promote “British values” such as individual liberty and tolerance in the wake of the Trojan Horse scandal, involving infiltration by hard-line Muslim groups in Birmingham. Details of the case are disclosed in a letter to the Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, from the Christian Institute, which is providing legal support to the school. The group warned that the new rules intended to combat extremism are already having “disturbing consequences” for religious schools and forcing Ofsted inspectors to act in a way which undermines their ethos.

ADF Unimpressed by Houston's 'Revised' Subpoenas
Houston city attorneys have backed off a request to obtain sermons from local clergymen. They've refused, however, to withdraw subpoenas seeking other information from five Houston pastors who publicly opposed an ordinance banning discrimination against gay and transgender residents. Mayor Annise Parker said Friday that the word "sermons" is being deleted from the subpoenas. Parker said she believes the demand for other speeches or presentations related to a petition drive to repeal the city's equal rights ordinance is appropriate.

Is Federal 'Leviathan' Pushing This 'Mark of the Beast' on Christians?
So what is this mark of the beast today? That's easy. It's the gay rainbow. This is the rainbow Big Gay has stolen from the Bible and from the church and turned into its own twisted symbol of perversion. Anyone who does not plaster homosexual rainbow stickers all over himself, his resume and the windows of his business will have his or her commercial interests terminated with extreme prejudice. 
The mark is on the "hand," referring to what a man does, and it is on the "forehead," referring to the way he thinks. It will not be enough simply to do what the Gay Gestapo demands; men will be forced to think politically correct thoughts about sodomy or face termination. Legislation is even now under consideration—the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA)—which will codify the mark of the beast and use the power of the federal leviathan to impose it tyrannically on the populace.

Govt tells Christian ministers: Perform same-sex weddings or face jail, fines
Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit and a motion for a temporary restraining order Friday to stop officials in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, from forcing two ordained Christian ministers to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples. City officials told Donald Knapp that he and his wife Evelyn, both ordained ministers who run Hitching Post Wedding Chapel, are required to perform such ceremonies or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines. The city claims its “non-discrimination” ordinance requires the Knapps to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies now that the courts have overridden Idaho’s voter-approved constitutional amendment that affirmed marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
