Muslim mob attacks Christian homes in Egyptian province
HAMZA HENDAWI  MAY 26, 2016

CAIRO (AP) — A Muslim mob ransacked and torched seven Christian homes in a province south of the Egyptian capital, Cairo, after rumors spread that a Christian man had an affair with a Muslim woman, according to a statement by the local Orthodox Coptic church.

Released late Wednesday, it said that during the May 20 attack, the mother of the Christian man, who had fled the village, was publicly stripped of her clothes by the mob to humiliate her.

Security officials said the woman was beaten and insulted while being paraded by the mob through the village. They said the mob was made of about 300 men.

The officials spoke on Thursday on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

"No one did anything and the police took no
pre-emptive or security measures in
anticipation of the attacks."

'ARMAGEDDON' FOR CHRISTIAN COLLEGES
'Gays' now 'firmly set on destroying all faith-based entities that disagree with lifestyle'
BOB UNRUH

The California State Legislature is working on an “Armageddon” for Christian colleges and universities that would force them to embrace “transgender rights” or lose funding for students.

“If these bills are successful, Christian colleges, for instance, would have to allow a male student who perceives his gender as being ‘female’ to live in the women’s dorm to avoid the risk of a lawsuit or the loss of financial aid options for students,” contended the non-profit Advocates for Faith and Freedom.

The College Fix quotes critics saying the bills “purporting to prevent LGBTQ discrimination, are actually designed to cripple the state’s Christian colleges.”

One would disqualify Christian colleges from receiving state-funded student financial aid if they deny students on the basis of “sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression” or if they obtain waivers from those requirements from the Department of Education.

Another bill would order Christian schools to tell students their “institutions are discriminatory.”

Quote
“And what happens after the lie is complete, after the once-obvious definition of male and female have been trashed and replaced with other, fuzzier definitions – ones that leave the interpretation open to the whims of society at-large? Society’s definition of humanity crumbles, and so, too the bulwarks of society, the family unit.”

“What we are really talking about [with transgender movement] is the abolition of sex. And it is sex that the trans project is serving to abolish legally, under the guise of something called the ‘gender binary.’ Its endgame is a society in which everyone is legally de-sexed. No longer legally male or female.”

... WHAT? A boy said the banned name "Jesus Christ"
at a graduation ceremony ... and all HELL broke loose?

High School Ends Tradition of Graduation Prayer
After Student Invoked Jesus Christ Last Year

DR. SUSAN BERRY   1 Jun 2016

A Pennsylvania public high school is ending its long tradition of offering a prayer or benediction during its graduation ceremony.
Last year, there was a complaint after a student invoked Jesus Christ while offering the prayer.

A controversy has ensued about the decision that Pottsgrove High School will not have an invocation or benediction at its graduation ceremony on June 15 – the first time in many years.

“To be honest, I’ve always thought that Pottsgrove was unique in still having prayer at public graduation ceremonies and that not many other schools in Montgomery County still do it,” said Superintendent Shellie Feola, reports The Mercury News. She added that she has always been concerned Pottsgrove was acting against case law pertaining to prayer and public schools, but decided to continue the tradition as long as no one complained.

“Last year’s was much more specifically religious than anything I had heard at Pottsgrove before,” Feola said about the student who invoked Jesus Christ. “I myself was kind of taken aback by the prayer. Apparently, it struck a chord with someone who was at the ceremony and it was reported to me that there was a complaint.”

SCHOOL SENDS DEPUTY TO WARN
7-YEAR-OLD ABOUT BIBLE VERSES

'District cannot suppress and censor this discussion, or the 1-page notes'
BOB UNRUH

Officials at a California public grade school who dispatched a sheriff’s deputy to stop a 7-year-old from sharing Bible verses with his classmates because someone could be “offended” now are being warned of “civil rights violations.”

The student regularly shared notes from his mother containing Bible verses that were tucked into his lunch at Desert Rose Elementary School in the Palmdale, California, School District, which declined to respond to a WND request for comment.

A media spokesman for the sheriff’s office told WND he knew nothing about the deputy visiting the 7-year-old’s home at the request of school officials and declined to comment.

But Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit litigation, education and policy group emphasizing religious liberties, has sent a letter to the school regarding its “unconstitutional suppression and censorship of student religious speech.”

The organization said it demanded that Desert Rose “correct an outrageous violation of a first grader’s constitutional rights.”

The situation started with an encouraging note and Bible verse from mom Christina Zavala, tucked into a packed lunch for her little boy (‘C’),” Liberty Counsel explained. “The seven-year-old boy read the note and verse, and showed them to his friends during lunch time at school.”

Soon multiple students at C’s school were asking for copies of the notes, which included short stories from the Bible, Liberty Counsel reported.

Quote
“However, when one little girl said ‘teacher – this is the most beautiful story I’ve ever seen,’ ‘separation of church and state’ was the response, and the notes were banned from lunchtime distribution. C was told that the school gate was the only location at which he could give the Bible verses to his friends, and only after the bell rang,” the organization explained.

but a culture.


ENDANGERED SPECIES': CHRISTIANITY AT
THE BRINK OF EXTINCTION IN TURKEY

by MARY CHASTAIN  21 Apr 2015

The Christian population of Turkey is evaporating rapidly. The nation, a NATO
member since 1952, has experienced a reduction in its Christian population from
20% 100 years ago to only 0.2% today.
The latest blow in the community occurred
at the Hagia Sophia during Easter holy week.


“The historic Istanbul cathedral and museum, Hagia Sophia, witnessed its first Quran recitation under its roof after 85 years Saturday,” reported the Anatolian News Agency of Turkey. “The Religious Affairs Directorate launched the exhibition ‘Love of Prophet,’ as part of commemorations of the birth of Islamic Prophet Muhammad.”

Istanbul was once known as Constantinople, founded by (CHRISTIAN) Roman Emperor Constantine in 324. He made it the capital of Rome before it fell to the Ottoman Empire in 1453. They made it their capital until the empire collapsed after World War I. Modern day Turkey officially renamed it Istanbul in 1923.

Turkey changed the name, but current officials have clearly indicated a desire to return to the Islamist state established under the Ottoman Empire. The Turkish Council of Ministers, for example, formed the Istanbul Conquest Society to help organize a yearly event to celebrate the conquest of Constantinople. As columnist Constantine Tzanos asks, “Why would anyone want to celebrate the conquest “which not only by itself was a great human catastrophe, but it was also the precursor to many such catastrophes up to the very recent past?” The Ottomans terrorized the Balkans, killing anyone who did not convert to Islam. Historian H. Gandev believes “that 2608 Bulgarian villages disappeared,” while the “rural population decreased by a total of 112,144 households (or approximately 560,000 people).” The post-Ottoman Turkish government repeated their predecessor’s history with the Armenian, Greek, and Assyrian genocides in Asia Minor, which led to the deaths of over three million people.

The Ottomans destroyed and converted churches, which the Turkish state continues to do. Tzanos explains why (emphasis added):


The message conveyed by those in Turkey who have achieved the conversion of Christian churches into mosques and demand the conversion of Hagia Sofia is that Turkey is an Islamic state and no other religion is tolerated. How can this be reconciled with the insistence of Turkey to join the European Union, which is founded on “the principles of liberty, democracy and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms,” including the freedom of religion?

“In some ways, Ankara’s policies against Turkey’s Christian citizens have added a modern veneer and sophisticated brutality to Ottoman norms and practices,” said political scientist Dr. Elizabeth H. Prodromou and historian Dr. Alexandros K. Kyrou. “In the words of an anonymous Church hierarch in Turkey fearful for the life of his flock, Christians in Turkey are an endangered species.”

GERMANY'S GENOCIDE VOTE THREATENS NATO
Armenian issue prompts Turkey to threaten future of alliance
F. MICHAEL MALOOF

WASHINGTON – With Turkey suspending diplomatic relations with Germany over the German parliament’s decision to declare the 1915 Armenian killings at the hands of the Turkish Ottoman Empire “genocide,” concerns have been raised over the effectiveness of the Western alliance NATO, according to a new report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

It’s a development that plays into the strategic hands of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely told G2 Bulletin that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO, already is ineffective, since the United States is bearing nearly 80 percent of its cost and readiness.

The 28 countries that belong to NATO are supposed to make an annual contribution of 2 percent of their gross national income, but, in reality, many are providing less than 1 percent, given the economic downturn throughout Europe.

“Turkey’s latest action will make an already ineffective NATO alliance even more ineffective,” Vallely said.

Waitress assaulted on French Riviera for 'serving alcohol' on first day of [UN-] holy month of Ramadan
By Henry Samuel,  Paris   
 8 June 2016 • 5:36pm   

A waitress in a cafe in central Nice has filed a police complaint after she was allegedly assaulted by two men because she refused to “stop serving alcohol” on the first day of the holy month of Ramadan.

The alleged beating in the French Riviera town historically famed for its sun, palm-fringed beach front and quality of life, has prompted a heated political debate over whether the country is increasingly becoming prey to  [ISLAMIC] “religious fundamentalism and ghettoised communities”.

The issue has become increasingly fraught less than a year before presidential elections and just six months after Islamist attacks in Paris killed 130 [mostly Christians!] .
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

IMC2, "the World does not HATES JESUS CHRIST". Even Communist do not hate Lord Jesus Christ ( look Communist Cuba ).
In Latin America does not hate Jesus Christ but, unfortunately they not kept His commandments. :(
"Right-wingers" does not hate Jesus Christ.
NWO, anti-Christian fanatics ( Atheists, Feminists, Liberals, Islamists and founder from Saudi Arabia...).
President Putin The Renaissance has made Orthodox Christianity in Russia (which some influential politicians such as Karl Bildt not like).
Serbs still believe in God. Saint bishop Nikolaj Velimirovic said decades ago: "It is not right question "Do you believe in God ( everebody said YES ) but do you believe in Gospel ? "

Good night, brothers and sisters in Christ

CHAPLAIN BOOTED OVER PRAYING 'IN JESUS'
NAME' GOES TO SUPREMES

If ruling stands, 'Christ's gospel is no longer free to be preached'
BOB UNRUH



The U.S. Navy chaplain who was removed from the military for disobeying a “lawful” order banning prayer “in Jesus’ name” has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene and overturn a decade of rulings in his case.


The petition for certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court was filed by attorney John B. Wells on behalf of Gordon J. Klingenschmitt.

His case was filed back in 2011, after his removal from the military over the issue of praying “in Jesus’ name” sparked years of battles.

Since his removal, Klingenschmitt has been leading the PrayInJesusName.org ministry, and he also has been serving as a representative of the people of Colorado in the state legislature.

“It’s been 10 years since the Navy punished me as a chaplain, for quoting ‘exclusive’ Bible verses in chapel during optional Christian worship, for praying ‘in Jesus’ name’ in uniform outside of chapel, for ‘worshiping in public’ which a Navy judge ruled illegal, and for blowing the whistle by writing to my congressman and the president,” Klingenschmitt told WND.

“No judge in my case, civilian or military, has ever once defended the Constitution as they and I swore an oath to do. I pray the Supreme Court of the United States will be the first to hear my case, and grant or petition for writ of certiorari, and finally rule the First Amendment protects military chaplains’ rights to pray and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.

“If they let such egregious violations stand, then
Christ’s gospel is no longer free to be preached
without government punishments in America.”

Muslims Torch Dozens of Christian Homes in Egypt
Katie Pavlich  Jun 22, 2016

More than 80 Christian homes were torched by a mob of Muslim men this week.

Why? They heard a rumor one of the homes was going to be turned into a church and therefore, dozens had to be destroyed. Lisa Daftari over at The Foreign Desk has the details:

The attacks, which took place Friday in Egypt’s Qaryat Al-Bayda village, near Alexandria, left two Copts seriously injured and resulted in thousands of dollars worth of damage, according to a Coptic activist.

"A great deal of fanatic Muslims gathered in front of the new house of my cousin," Mousa Zarif, a Christian who witnessed the events, told Christian advocacy group International Christian Concern.

“They were chanting slogans against us. Among these slogans were, ‘By no means shall there be a church here,’” Zarif said.

Naim Aziz, the Christian man who was building the house, told Daily News Egypt that he was constructing it for his son to live in and not for a church.

The attackers then began chanting traditional Islamic afternoon prayer on loudspeakers aimed at Christian families in the village as they torched their cars and homes, even as police began to arrive, according to ICC.

... the crazy muslim ISIS head-choppers
publish a new issue of their DABIQ
propaganda sh*T-raG:


‘Break the Cross’: Islamic State Magazine Mocks
Christianity, Claims Jesus Is ‘a Slave of Allah’

FRANCES MARTEL   1 Aug 2016

In the latest issue of its English-language magazine Dabiq, the Islamic State calls on Christians to abandon Christianity, arguing that Jesus himself was “a slave of Allah” who will “wage jihad” upon returning to earth.

The fifteenth issue of the magazine, titled “Break the Cross,” is dedicated to convincing Christians that Jesus was a prophet of Allah, was never crucified, and that most of the New Testament is a perversion of Jesus’s story orchestrated by St. Paul, a “criminal” “treacherous Jew” who gave up massacring Christians in order to subvert the religion from the inside. Its articles strive to depict Christianity as a pagan religion based on a false Jesus, arguing that the only true Jesus is the prophet of Islam.

The feigned compassion towards Christians in most of the volume stands in stark contrast to the actions of the Islamic State’s terrorists towards Christian communities, which includes rape, torture, crucifixion, and slavery.

In the issue’s Foreward, the editors make clear the intent of the magazine: the issue will help “Crusaders” “read into why Muslims hate and fight them, why pagan Christians should break their crosses, why liberalist secularists should return to the fitrah (natural human disposition), and why skeptical atheists should recognize their Creator and submit to Him.”

The claim that Jesus did not die
on the cross appears in the Quran.

That Albanian extremists + Islamists stormed and set fire to Christian Serbian Orthodox church in downtown of Pristina, Kosovo.  was the Church of Christ the Savior, which is already targeted by Albanian extremists since NATO occupied Kosovo.
I'm not aware that someone punished for all these attacks on the church in Pristina.
(UNMIK Police, EULEX police, "Kosovo police") but I know MSM in the West "loudly silent" about such events throughout Kosovo.

Trump rips media for mocking Christians
By Jonathan Easley
September 09, 2016
...
That was the theme that emerged throughout the day, as conservatives warned that a Clinton presidency would be death blow for social conservatives.

There is tremendous anxiety among Christians that Clinton will tap ultra-liberal Supreme Court justices who will infringe on their right to freely practice their faith.

Trump on Friday won big applause for vowing to repeal The Johnson Amendment, which prohibits churches and other tax-exempt organizations from endorsing political candidates.

Trump left his script to tell the story of how frustrated he was when asking for the endorsements from a group of Christian leaders that gathered to meet with in New York City earlier this year, only to find out they were prohibited from doing so.

“The first thing we have to do is give our churches their voice back,” Trump said. “The Johnson Amendment has blocked our pastors from speaking their minds from their own pulpit. If they want to talk about Christianity, if they want to preach or talk about politics, they’re unable to do so, they take a tremendous risk that they’ll lose their of their tax-exempt status.”

totally bat-s#!t crazy:

WEARING CROSS 'UN-CHRISTIAN,' SAYS CHURCH OF SWEDEN OFFICIAL
Homosexuals should be low-key to avoid 'provoking' Muslims
BOB UNRUH

Leaders of the Church of Sweden, the official government-endorsed religious body, say that wearing a cross necklace is “un-Christian.”

And God has a pro-immigration and open-borders philosophy.

By the way, they insist, homosexuals should be low-key so they don’t “provoke” Muslims.

The stunning positions taken by the Swedish church group were uncovered by Nima Gholam Ali Pour, who warns in a report for the Gatestone Institute International Policy Council that the nation is very close to having a “new religion.”

“In Swedish Christianity, Jesus has been reduced from being the son of God, to an activist fighting for multiculturalism and open borders. According to Archbishop Antje Jackelén of the Church of Sweden, Jesus has clear political positions on both migration and integration policies,” Pour wrote.

“The leadership of the Church of Sweden no longer wants to lead a Christian community; they want to lead a general ethical association for humanistic values,” Ann Heberlein, doctor of theology and lecturer at Lund University, said in the report.

“If Christianity in Sweden begins to embrace a doctrine that has nothing to do with the universal world religion of Christianity, Sweden has then invented a new religion,” Pour reasoned.

Quote
So now, according to a senior official in the Church of Sweden,
the call to wear a cross to show solidarity with persecuted Christians is ‘un-Christian.'”

(CNN)An explosion near a Coptic cathedral in the Egyptian capital has left at least 25 people dead and 31 others injured, local media reported.

The blast occurred in Cairo's Abbassyia district early Sunday morning, according to the government-sponsored Al-Ahram daily, citing the health ministry.

'Germany is at war': Berlin on alert for new terror attack as police hunt armed ISIS gunman who killed 12 people in truck massacre - after security services admit they got the WRONG man

A second terror attack in Berlin could be imminent after police admitted the killer lorry driver who mowed down 12 people at a packed Christmas market is on the loose and armed with a gun.

Prosecutor Holger Münch has warned of a 'serious threat' of another 'significant' terror attack as it emerged an asylum seeker from Pakistan arrested last night was the wrong man. Berlin's police chief Klaus Kandt said the 'dangerous criminal' behind a deadly truck rampage at a Christmas market may still be on the run, urging 'heightened vigilance'. Interior minister Klaus Bouillon said that Germany is 'in a state of war' after the massacre on Breitscheidplatz Square last night. Detectives interrogating chief suspect Naved B (top right), 23, have said he has no blood on his clothes, no injuries and denies hijacking the 25-tonne lorry (left). A security services source, a senior police officer, told die Welt newspaper: 'We have the wrong man. So we have a new situation. The true perpetrator is still armed, at large and can cause further damage.' Witnesses said victims including children were sent flying like bowling pins and sucked under the wheels leaving 'rivers of blood' as the killer driver steered at them before jumping out of the cab and racing from the scene.

At 7pm last night a juggernaut laden with steel cargo turned off its lights and ripped through stalls and shoppers at 40mph on Breitscheidplatz Square, outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in the German capital's main shopping area.

Witnesses said victims including children were sent flying like bowling pins and sucked under the wheels leaving 'rivers of blood' as the killer driver steered at them before jumping out of the cab and racing from the scene. 

Only six of the nine dead have been identified but Italian Fabrizia Lorenzo, 31, transport specialist worker is missing and her mobile phone and travel pass were found in the crash zone

...
The Pakistani asylum seeker arrested after the Berlin Christmas market massacre was allegedly held for a sex attack in July and was already on the Interpol crime database, it was revealed today.

Arrested suspect Naved B, is believed to have entered the country under a false name on New Year's Eve 2015, and some German newspapers said he may have been radicalised by an ISIS handler after arriving in Germany.

Germany's Defence Minister Thomas de Maizière today confirmed that the suspect was not on Germany's terror list but was on the Interpol list of criminals. He was also allegedly arrested in Berlin for a sex attack in July and other petty crimes.

...

'Millions of people have been asking: How can we live with it that at a Christmas market - a place of joy – a killer brings death to so many people? I have no simple answer to this question.

A Tunisian asylum seeker suspected of carrying out the Berlin massacre was arrested three times this year amid fears he was planning a terror plot - but they let him go.


Despite being an ISIS supporter known to have received weapons training, German authorities allowed Anis Amri to slip through their clutches time after time.

The 23-year-old even tried to recruit an accomplice for a terror plot – and again the authorities knew about it – but still he remained at large, it has emerged

...


Most wanted: Police today revealed they are hunting Anis Amri, 23, pictured, a refugee who came to Germany last year. His paperwork was found in truck's footwell. The driver is believed to be armed and dangerous

He arrived in Germany in July 2015 and was given a hearing by immigration authorities in April this year. He was denied the right to asylum and due to be deported before the end of the year.

But under a peculiarity of the German asylum system he was granted a 'Duldung' or toleration papers allowing him to stay for unknown reasons.

According to BILD newspaper the German authorities were in touch with their Tunisian counterparts to get him a passport so he could be kicked out. But Tunis said it had no record of him being a citizen.

Tunisia was accused of delaying his extradition as it emerged that papers had only just arrived today - two days after the carnage.

What is so strange for me is that I come from a Crusader family . I thought the crusades were over ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Housecarl
...
In medieval Scandinavia, husmän (Old Norse: húskarlar, singular húskarl; also anglicised as housecarl huscarl (Old English form) and sometimes spelled huscarle or houscarl) were either non-servile manservants, or household troops in personal service of someone, equivalent to a bodyguard to Scandinavian lords and kings.

This institution also existed in Anglo-Saxon England after its conquest by the kingdom of Denmark in the 11th century. In England, the royal housecarls had a number of roles, both military and administrative; they are well known for having fought under Harold Godwinson at the Battle of Hastings.

The original Old Norse term, húskarl, literally means "house man"; see also the Anglo-Saxon term churl or ceorl, whose root is the same as the Old Norse karl, and which also means "a man, a non-servile peasant".[1] These were well trained men who were paid as they were full-time soldiers. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle uses hiredmenn as a term for all paid warriors and thus is applied to housecarl but it also refers to butsecarls[a] , and lithsmen as well. It is not clear whether these were types of housecarl too or different altogether
,,..
In England

The term entered the English language when Svein Forkbeard and Cnut the Great conquered and occupied Anglo-Saxon England; the housecarls of Cnut were highly disciplined bodyguards.[6] It is unclear, however, whether Cnut's housecarls were all Scandinavians; according to Susan Reynolds, it is likely that some of them were, or became, or were thought of as English.[14]

Housecarls were only one group of paid mercenaries or hiredmenn who fought for England before the Norman Conquest.

From Viking to Crusader is the beautifully illustrated catalogue of what claims to be the largest ever Viking exhibition, currently on display in Copenhagen. It brings together objects from the whole geographical range of Scandinavian activity, from Canada to Russia and the Ukraine. It shows the now familiar faces of Scandinavians between the eighth and twelfth centuries as raiders, traders and settlers, and their less familiar guise as Christians and, eventually, crusaders, spreading Christianity by force around the Baltic.

Some English (Angl ) trivia ) :


http://www.literarynorfolk.co.uk/norfolk_churches.htm
Norfolk has over 650 medieval churches - the highest concentration in the world. Of these, 125 have round towers - more than any other county in the UK. (Suffolk has 42, Essex 7, Sussex 3, Cambridgeshire 2 and Berkshire 2.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwich
...
The ancient city was a thriving centre for trade and commerce in East Anglia in 1004 AD when it was raided and burnt by Swein Forkbeard the Viking king of Denmark. Mercian coins and shards of pottery from the Rhineland dating from the 8th century suggest that long-distance trade was happening long before this. Between 924 and 939, Norwich became fully established as a town, with its own mint. The word Norvic appears on coins across Europe minted during this period, in the reign of King Athelstan. The Vikings were a strong cultural influence in Norwich for 40–50 years at the end of the 9th century, setting up an Anglo-Scandinavian district near the north end of present day King Street. At the time of the Norman Conquest the city was one of the largest in England. The Domesday Book states that it had approximately 25 churches and a population of between 5,000–10,000.

Since when does a car bomber "lack motivation"?!

ACL 'car bomb' wasn't motivated: police

    Belinda Merhab
    Australian Associated Press
    11:26AM December 22, 2016

A suspected car bomb at the Australian Christian Lobby's Canberra office wasn't politically, religiously or ideologically motivated, police believe.

Windows are blown out and furnishings destroyed at the office in Deakin after it was rammed by a van carrying gas bottles about 9.35pm on Wednesday.

The driver, a 35-year-old local, took himself to the Canberra Hospital, suffering serious burn injuries and he remains there in a critical condition.

"As a result of our conversations with the man, we have been able to establish that his actions were not politically, religiously or ideologically motivated," Deputy Chief Police Officer Commander Mark Walters told reporters.

The group's director, Lyle Shelton, says the apparent bomb follows a year of death threats over its opposition to gay marriage and the Safe Schools program that aims to reduce bullying of gay students.

One of those threats was tracked to a person in Tasmania but the rest were unable to be tracked, he said.

Police have now been in contact with ACL staff and investigations will continue into threats it has received.

An emotional Mr Shelton arrived at the Eternity House building on Campion Street on Thursday morning, having broken his holiday in Brisbane, to find the scene worse than he expected...

Vandal crushes figures in creche at Saint Clair church
By Stephen J. Pytak / Published: December 22, 2016

SAINT CLAIR — A vandal severely damaged a few of the ceramic characters which were part of a Nativity set on the lawn of a church in the borough.

“We never had anything like this happen before. It’s sad,” Bonnie Baker, the senior warden of the church, The Church of the Holy Apostles at the northeast corner of North Nichols and East Hancock streets, said Wednesday.

The matter was reported to borough police, said Roland Price Jr., who is the borough secretary and a member of the church.

He estimated the set cost $1,000.

“We bought it about 15 years ago. We bought it from a store in Reading,” Baker said.

Traditional manger removed from Fountain Square Park
Wes Swietek
Dec 14, 2016


Just as Mary and Joseph had to leave their home some 2,000 years ago in search of a place for baby Jesus to lay his head, a popular Bowling Green depiction of the biblical story has also been displaced.


After being a fixture Christmas display at Fountain Square Park for decades, a large manger scene, complete with figures of Mary, Joseph, shepherds, animals and the baby Jesus, is no longer part of the park's holiday decorations. There is a lighted wire-frame manger scene that matches the other new lighted candy canes, toy soldiers, snowmen and snowflakes in the park. The removal of the old manger display has been a hot topic on social media.


Bowling Green Mayor Bruce Wilkerson said the decision to replace the traditional manger, which was owned by the local chapter of Catholic fraternal organization the Knights of Columbus, was part of a general overhaul of the displays at the park, and not linked to one man's efforts to erect a "secular" display at the park.

...


The U.S. Supreme Court has weighed in on cases of religious displays by municipalities and has offered a ruling that is known as the "Plastic Reindeer Rule."

That ruling stemmed from a 1984 case from Rhode Island, where "the Court was asked to consider if the First Amendment prohibited a municipality from including a creche, or Nativity scene, in its annual Christmas display," according to an article on the Constitution Daily blog.



The display included a nativity scene – known formally as a creche – and secular symbols such as Santa Claus, a Christmas tree and a plastic reindeer.

If the presence of the creche in this display violates the Establishment Clause
, a host of other forms of taking official note of Christmas, and of our religious heritage, are equally offensive to the Constitution,” Chief Justice Warren Burger wrote in a ruling allowing the display. “We are satisfied that the city has a secular purpose for including the creche, that the city has not impermissibly advanced religion, and that including the creche does not create excessive entanglement between religion and government.”
...

"No one has threatened to sue us that I'm aware of," he said, adding that he fields a lot of complaints and didn't recall the specific issue of the manger display being brought up – "that's not the driving force behind the change," he said.
...
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

"sectarian clashes" = innocent Christians brutally murdered by muslims.

Report: 90,000 Christians Killed for Their Faith in 2016
THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.   1 Jan 2017



During the year 2016, some 90,000 Christians were
killed for their faith around the world, according to a
new study from the Turin-based Center for Studies
on New Religions (CESNUR).

The director of CESNUR and leader of the study, Dr. Massimo Introvigne, told Breitbart News that Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world, and the numbers of those affected are staggering.

Christians are targeted primarily for two reasons, Introvigne said, “first because their proclamation of peace disturbs more belligerent groups; and second, because their social teachings on life, family and poverty are opposed by powerful forces.”

While in the past century, atheistic communist regimes were the greatest persecutors of Christians, Introvigne added, the geopolitical landscape has changed considerably since then and the actors have changed as well.

While “Communism’s last salvoes” are still responsible for some ill-treatment of Christians, Introvigne told Breitbart, “Islamic ultra-fundamentalism” has taken its place as the number-one agent of persecution.

Quote
While tens of thousands of Christians are killed for their faith, Introvigne said, they are just the tip of the iceberg and much persecution takes place on a daily basis that never makes news.

I cannot believe it. In XXI century ? MSM are silent. UN are silent. Vatican are silent. "Humanists" are silent.
NATO are silent. 
Maybe Dr. Massimo Introvigne become Christian Simon Wiesanthal ?

Saint Stephen. First killed Christian.





He was a kinsman of the Apostle Paul and one of those Jews who lived in a Hellenic milieu. Stephen was the first of the seven deacons whom the holy apostles ordained for the service of the poor in Jerusalem. This is why he is called the Archdeacon - the first, or chief, of them. By the power of his faith, Stephen worked many wonders among the people. The wicked Jews disputed with him, but were always confounded by his wisdom and the power of the Spirit who acted through him. Then the shameful Jews, adept at calumny and slander, stirred up the people and leaders against this innocent man. They slandered Stephen, saying that he had blasphemed against God and against Moses, and quickly found false witnesses who supported their assertion. Then Stephen stood before the people, and all saw his face "like the face of an angel": that is, his face was illumined by the light of grace as was the face of Moses when he talked with God. Stephen opened his mouth and spoke of God"s manifold works and marvels, performed in the past for the People of Israel, and of the people"s manifold transgressions and opposition to God. He especially denounced them for the slaying of Christ the Lord, calling them "betrayers and murderers" (Acts 7:52). While they ground their teeth, Stephen looked and saw the heavens open and the glory of God, and spoke to the Jews of what he saw: "Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God" (7:56). Then the malicious men took him out of the city and stoned him to death. Among his murderers was his kinsman Saul, later the Apostle Paul. At that time, the most holy Mother of God was standing on a rock at a distance with St John the Theologian, and witnessed the martyrdom of this first martyr for the truth of her Son and God, and she prayed for Stephen. This happened exactly a year after the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles. St Stephen"s body was taken secretly and buried by Gamaliel in his own ground. He was a Jewish prince and a secret Christian. Thus this first of Christ"s martyrs made a glorious end and entered into the Kingdom of Christ our God.

Iraqi Archbishop:
Where Were the Protesters ‘When ISIS Came to Kill Christians’?

THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.  -  3 Feb 2017

The Catholic Archbishop of Erbil has denounced the hypocrisy of those protesting President Trump’s recent executive order on immigration, wondering aloud where all of the demonstrators were when Islamic State fighters were slaughtering Christians and other minorities in the Middle East.

In an interview with the online journal Crux, Archbishop Bashar Warda said that from his perspective in Iraq, he couldn’t help but ask “why all of these protesters were not protesting in the streets when ISIS came to kill Christians and Yazidis and other minority groups.”

Warda also criticized the policies of the Obama administration, which offered no financial assistance to displaced Christians in Islamic State territory and instead favored Syrian Muslims when it came to accepting refugees into the United States.

“They were not protesting when the tens of thousands of displaced Christians my archdiocese has cared for since 2014 received no financial assistance from the U.S. government or the U.N.,” he said. “There were no protests when Syrian Christians were only let in at a rate that was 20 times less than the percentage of their population in Syria.”

Quote
“Most Americans have no concept of what it was like to live as a Yazidi or Christian or other minority as ISIS invaded,” he said. “Our people had the option to flee, to convert, or to be killed, and many were killed in the most brutal ways imaginable.”

... “Our people lost everything because of their faith—they were targeted for their faith, just like the Yazidis and others too,” he said. “Now these protesters are saying that religion should not matter at all, even though someone was persecuted for their faith, even though persecution based on religion is one of the grounds for refugee status in the UN treaty on refugees.”

“We are an ancient people on the verge of extinction because of our
commitment to our faith. Will anybody protest for us?” he asked.

ISIS Declares To Muslims In New Video To ‘Hunt Down,
Terrorize, And Slaughter All The Christians Of Egypt’

Andrew Bieszad - February 20, 2017

  Christianity is under attack in Muslim nations in ways not seen for centuries.

   It is nothing short of a genocide as Islamic groups such as ISIS with complicit governments allow these people to commit heinous violence against the Christians without limit, and all the while the Muslims brag about it.

   In a recent story coming out of Egypt, ISIS has encouraged Muslims in a new video to commit genocide against the Christians, vowing to terrorize, hunt down, and destroy every last one of them:

   In a newly released 20-minute video, ISIS’ media wing in Egypt encouraged fellow jihadists to terrorize and kill Christians across the country.

   Around 10% of Egypt’s population identify as Christians and most adhere to the Coptic Orthodox branch of Christianity. The minority is frequently targeted by terror attacks from either ISIS or the Muslim Brotherhood.

Generally, the Copts tend to support the Egyptian Army which has yet to halt the continuous Islamic State raids that plague the Sinai desert. (source)

(ED: Full video was taken down immediately by Youtube)
Part of the video can be viewed on Twitter here: at link

   Several days ago I wrote how in spite of the intentions to want Christians to stay in the Middle East and rebuild their areas, this was simply a pipe dream not based in reality. Christianity in the Middle East has become under intense threat as of late, and even the Christians themselves recognize that their future is at best questionable given the rise in Islamic orthodoxy combines with the improved methods of learning, communication, and more efficient weapons to deal out the same horrific deaths quicker and over larger numbers of people. Whether it is a the hands of a group like ISIS or outright persecution from a central government such as Turkey, the writing is on the wall just like it was for the Christians of Turkey during the Hamidian massacres of 1895 in the years before the great genocide of 1917- Christians in the Middle East are a hated, hunted people who are biding their time until their extermination.

   Right now, we have a choice- either help the Christians of the Middle East as we can to escape to a safe location, or hope they can rebuild their current societies while most likely subjecting them to a fate of torture and death and then wondering what could have been done to stop it.
