A note of appreciation from the Burmese border, thank you for helping us get the Full Gospel of Christ out to a dying world.

The first version of the Born Again Christian News Widget has been downloaded by several thousand people (including 633 Macupdate users to date), and no problems have been reported. It uses the default code in the proprietary Apple Dashcode (tm) software, so it's no surprise it is safe and works perfectly.

Here's a sample of the daily headlines the Widget delivers to your Apple Dashboard:

Jesus and Prostitutes - Frightened, abused, and drug-addled: What would the LORD Jesus Christ say to the whores in your town today?

The Christian View of Halloween - Is there any harm in children enjoying 'Trick or Treat'? Does Halloween have a Christian origin as pagans often claim? Is it innocent fun, or another demonic strategy for introducing the unwary to the occult?

When Leaders Sin - Should you leave, or stay, in a fellowship where the leaders are sinning?

Thanks for making this. I really needed something to blog about and this, and your website, hit the spot.

You should be pleased to know that the post is only one of two to use the word "scary" and the only one of those two that is serious.

Of all the sites on the net I have only ever seen one other like yours. I am ******* pleased.

Note from the Developer of the Born Again Christian News Widget:

Thank you for your comments. Please note that this free Dashboard Widget is made using Apple's Dashcode (tm) software. As such, it employs Apple's default RSS feed template code and is perfectly safe.

It delivers the daily Christian RSS feed headlines of the site:


The website proclaims the Full Gospel message typical of mainline Spirit-filled Christians such as; Baptist, Pentecostal, and Charismatic believers.

The Statement of Faith of the host, a self-financed English missionary in Asia, is here:


Only non-Christians, and pseudo-Christian fringe groups, would feel the need to distance themselves from this software and the message of Christ's love and perfect redemption proclaimed through it.

Give it a try, and if you don't like it, simply remove it as you would any other Dashboard widget.

MacUpdate shouldn't facilitate twisted wackyness such as this.

This is not a program, but a display window for hokus pokus propaganda, which has no informal value whatsoever.

It's the 21st century and people ought to wake UP and stop believing in myths. If there's any religion worthy of trusting, it's got to be love and common sense. And you certainly shouldn't need any news widgets to see what's going on there.

Does just what it says, reads the RSS feed from the website. Simple on features (doesn't really need any more), ease of use (click and go), value (free!) and stability, well, it hasn't crashed anything.

Comment on content: If you don't believe, you don't have to use it. In opposition to the other commentaries about this widget, you won't find disparaging words from those who run the site. A curious comparison...

Against my better Judgement I gave this a shot. It links to ignorant, insane-sounding blatherings that are loony at best, offensive at worst (the author's website calls some native Thai people "demon worshipers" for crying out loud). Yuck.

MacUpdate blocks potentially inflamatory politically oriented software and, frankly, I wish they'd extend that blocking to offensive religiously oriented things (like this widget).

Please give specific examples of where they call Thai people demon worshippers, and any other specific references to things that you think make this unlistable.


From the developers site: http://www.born-again-christian.info/aboutus.htm

"And eight Lisu demon-worshippers have their lives to Jesus on the spot"

He calls Mormons and the Church of Jesus Christ "cults": "...we do warn new believers to avoid the cults, such as ... Mormons, 'Church of Jesus Christ..." Now, I don't necessarily disagree with him but I'd say he forgot to include himself in that list.

and for examples of general nuttiness, read the above linked page. The guy claims he can heal people through prayer: "...once I prayed for a crippled teenager...the girl was healed and threw away her crutch.", battle demons and at the end, he begs for money "If the Lord is nudging you to donate some money..."

I'm sorry but to most regular folks, this is a crazy person. MacUpdate refuses to host software that is political in nature (at least, liberally political. I assume you are even handed and extend that to all sides of the spectrum) so you really shouldn't being hosting such nutcase stuff as this.

This widget leads to the website of the Born Again Christianity group: http://www.born-again-christian.info/aboutus.htm.

Some MacUpdate users will find this website helpful but many more will find the views expressed on this website disturbing. I would suggest that you might like to visit their web site and decide for yourself.

Having done so, you may you wish to remove their widget from your computer, which is what I did. If you don't know how to remove a widget you can read the instructions from Apple at: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=302240

Ummmmm... ratings should probably be based on the functionality of the widget and personal religious views not really be a part of it.

If you had perhaps said something like "This widget does nothing more than list summaries of blog entries that bring you to a website when clicked," I could see a reason for a low rating, since there are hundreds of widgets like that, created from examples provided by Apple.


Thanks for the warning. I, for one, appreciate it and will certainly not use this thing because of it.
