Resorting to jihadist rhetoric, Esra, the daughter of Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan—who just gained another five years as president—recently attacked the West and Christianity.

In a tweet written, not in her native Turkish, but in Islam’s tongue, Arabic, the “first daughter” declared that “There is little left for the Islamic crescent to break the Western cross.”

This phrase is as universally understood by Muslims, as it is universally misunderstood by Westerners, and is, therefore, emblematic of Muslim continuity and Western confusion.

It has both a literal and figurative meaning.

Concerning the former, Muslims have been, quite literally, “breaking the cross” in keeping with their prophet’s commandment.  Past and present, Muslims have destroyed and continue to destroy the crucifix—in cemeteries, in churches, on Christians—as a reflection of their animosity to the Gospel, specifically, that Christ was crucified, killed, and resurrected, three doctrines central to Christianity that Islam rejects.

Indeed, the June 2015 cover of the Islamic State’s magazine, Dabiq, featured a Muslim breaking a cross off a church steeple, with the words “Break the Cross” underneath.

More figuratively, “break the cross” has always meant “defeat Christianity”—another thing that Muslims, past and present, have been fervently striving for—including, apparently, the ostensibly “secularized” daughter of Turkey’s president, a “sociologist” by profession.

In the past, Muslims managed, through violent jihad, to swallow up three-quarters of the original Christian world—including the Middle East, North Africa, and “Turkey” (Anatolia).  They also temporarily conquered several other Christian territories (Spain, the Mediterranean, the Balkans), and continuously harried the rest (eventually even reaching Iceland for slaves and provoking a newborn American into its first war as a nation).

Back then, when Islam was a formidable force, Europeans fought tooth and nail to repulse the terrorists and safeguard their homeland’s faith and heritage.

Today, however, when Islam is weak and easily confined, the West finds itself bending over backwards to accommodate and take in more and more Muslim migrants—many of whom, rather than show gratitude, display Islam’s traditional contempt for and prey on “infidels.”

In short, whereas Muslims—including Turkey’s president and offspring—know well and strive to achieve the meaning of “break the cross,” Westerners, who for over a millennium had been on the receiving end of such animosity, until they managed to reverse the tide in the eighteenth century, are today, not only not doing anything about it, but facilitating it.

In this sense, the assertion that “There is little left for the Islamic crescent to break the Western cross” is more reflective of the state of Christianity in the West than of Islam.

The crescent may win in the West, but if it does, it will not be a victory over the cross, which the West has long since abandoned.

“Erdoğan’s daughter takes aim at Christianity: ‘The crescent will win over Cross of the West,'” Greek City Times, May 15, 2023:

The daughter of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Esra, attacked the West and Christianity.

In her post on Twitter, Esra, declared in Arabic that there is little left for the Islamic crescent to “break” the Western cross.

The daughter of the Turkish president is a sociologist.

In 2004, her wedding was attended by the then-Greek Prime Minister, Kostas Karamanlis….

ORCHESTRATED Chaos by Design MANDATED BY THE JESUIT POPE: Hawley Unmasks the ‘Collapse Strategy’ The Biden Immigration Strategy

Senator Josh Hawley accuses the Biden administration of orchestrating an intentional collapse of the immigration system, creating chaos at the border. In a candid conversation with Fox News, Hawley uncovers what he believes to be a plot to overrun the border, destabilize the asylum process, and overwhelm the courts. He warns of an imminent surge in drug trafficking and crime, all in the bid to meet the globalist agendas of the Democrat Party's elite. This comes at a time when border crossings are at an all-time high, with suspected terrorists now being apprehended. Dive deeper into this story, tap the link in our bio.

The Threat Behind Biden’s Latest Lie~Was the speech written by Jesuit Pope Francis?~The Ominous Reason Why Biden Keeps Repeating His False Claim About a White Supremacist Threat

What happens when everyone who opposes the Left is labeled a white supremacist terrorist?

Biden Decries White Supremacy And Hate In Commencement Address To Howard University


SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/the-threat-behind-bidens-latest-lie/;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Old Joe Biden gave the commencement address at Howard University on Saturday, and as he has done so many times during his presidency, he stoked the flames of racial hatred, resentment, division, and mutual suspicion. That’s par for the course for this conscience-free, senescent corruptocrat, but his words at Howard had an ominous edge that all Americans should not fail to discern. Biden wasn’t just lying, as he always does. He was signaling future plans of his regime.

Biden repeated his frequently repeated lie that Donald Trump had called Nazis “fine people,” and also said: “But on the best days, enough of us have the guts and the hearts to st- — to stand up for the best in us. To choose love over hate, unity over disunion, progress over retreat.  To stand up against the poison of white supremacy, as I did in my Inaugural Address — to single it out as the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy. And I’m not saying this because I’m at a black HBCU.  I say it wherever I go.”

What’s a “Black HBCU,” Joe? “HBCU” stands for “Historically black colleges and universities,” so our alleged president, who is sharp as a tack and not at all in the throes of advanced dementia, was saying that he was speaking at a “black historically black college and university.” This ridiculous phrase could be the result of Joe’s speechwriter making lazy use of the acronym, but it’s more likely that Biden was going off-script and saying something incoherent. Again.

Old Joe lied yet again when he said that he repeats the lie that white supremacists constitute the nation’s biggest terror threat everywhere he goes, but he has indeed said it before. And not just Biden, but also Gestapo chief Merrick Garland, and the FBI have told us so, and they wouldn’t lie to us, now, would they? In November 2021, FBI and Homeland Security Department officials increased investigations of “domestic extremists,” reiterating the claim that they are today’s foremost terror threat. Yet no matter how often Biden and his henchmen repeat this, actual white supremacist terrorists in any significant numbers have been conspicuously lacking.

Ever so conveniently for Biden, no sooner had he uttered this false claim again at Howard on Saturday than a couple of hundred actual white supremacist terrorists miraculously materialized in Washington. All were young, physically fit men; not a single fat Nazi in the bunch. All wore the same blue shirt and khaki pants uniform, all with their faces covered, and once again, the feds showed no curiosity about who they are and made no attempt to determine where they came from or where they went. This clumsy false-flag operation was widely exposed and ridiculed on Twitter, but conservative writer Chris Brunet pointed out:

“What’s sad about this clip is that everyone here on my side of Twitter instantly knows this is a glowie/fed operation… pure theatre. But it is actually a really effective psyop, they keep doing it, because it works. Ask any normal person on the street, ask your mom, ask your sister, and they will be terrified of this clip and fall for it hook-line-and-sinker.”

The FBI has also been busy fashioning a white supremacist threat in other ways. Whistleblowers have revealed that Old Joe’s pure-as-the-driven-snow FBI has been hard at work pressuring agents to classify cases as “domestic violent extremism” (DVE) when they aren’t, and rewarding them when they do. That’s how you create a white supremacist terror threat.

This revelation came last year in a letter that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) sent to FBI top dog Christopher Wray. Jordan stated that “from recent protected disclosures, we have learned that FBI officials are pressuring agents to reclassify cases as ‘domestic violent extremism’ even if the cases do not meet the criteria for such a classification.” This was no surprise. This is, after all, the same FBI that investigated angry parents who protested at school board meetings against the imposition of the woke agenda in public schools.

That’s the threat that was contained in Old Joe’s words at Howard. Old Joe said it plainly last September in his ominous red and black speech: “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” The parents at the school board meetings were just the beginning. This regime aims to criminalize political dissent, and that will require demonizing and stigmatizing fully half of the electorate. Before too long it will be clear that when Biden claims that white supremacists are the biggest terror threat the nation faces, he means ordinary Americans who have never broken any law but who oppose his agenda. If everyone who opposes him is a white supremacist terrorist, then the nation has over a hundred million of them. Arrests and prosecutions on false pretenses will follow. That’s the threat that was contained in his words at Howard.


The Ominous Reason Why Biden Keeps Repeating His False Claim About a White Supremacist Threat

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

As Ben Bartee noted Saturday, Old Joe Biden’s commencement speech at Howard University “included a hearty condemnation of the alleged scourge of White Supremacy™ in America.” In fact, the alleged president called white supremacy “the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland.” Then on Sunday, Homeland Security Secretary and failed Disinformation Governance Board overlord Alejandro Mayorkas agreed with Old Joe, emphasizing that “domestic violent extremism is our greatest threat right now.” Many other Biden regime officials have said the same thing in the nearly two and a half years now that they have been inflicting themselves upon us. The reason why they keep making this false claim is clear and ominous.

At Howard, Biden first repeated his oft-stated lie that Donald Trump had called Nazis “fine people.” Then he said: “But on the best days, enough of us have the guts and the hearts to st — to stand up for the best in us. To choose love over hate, unity over disunion, progress over retreat. To stand up against the poison of white supremacy, as I did in my Inaugural Address — to single it out as the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy. And I’m not saying this because I’m at a black HBCU. I say it wherever I go.”

A “black HBCU”? As opposed to all the white historically black colleges and universities, Joe? But anyway, Old Joe’s lie about white supremacists being the nation’s biggest terror threat has also been repeated by Gestapo chief Merrick Garland and the FBI. In November 2021, FBI and Homeland Security Department officials increased investigations of “domestic extremists,” reiterating the claim that they are today’s foremost terror threat.

Yet no matter how often Biden and his henchmen repeat this, actual white supremacist terrorists in any significant numbers have been conspicuously lacking. Yet on MSNBC (of course) Sunday, “journalist” Jonathan Capehart perpetuated the myth, asking Mayorkas: “The president, yesterday at his commencement address for Howard University graduates, called white supremacy the major domestic terrorist threat in this country. Is that correct?”

Mayorkas, of course, answered in the affirmative: “It tragically is. And the terrorism context, domestic violent extremism is our greatest threat right now. Individuals are driven to violence because of ideologies of hate, anti-government sentiment, false narratives, and personal grievances. Regrettably, we have seen a rise in white supremacy. The principle underlying our work is that when one community is targeted, Jonathan, when one community is targeted, we as a country are targeted.”

Note how Mayorkas related “anti-government sentiment” to “white supremacy.” Old Joe revealed the game that is being played here last September when he said in his ominous red and black speech that “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

This regime aims to criminalize political dissent, and that will require demonizing and stigmatizing fully half of the electorate. It is increasingly clear that when Biden claims that white supremacists are the biggest terror threat the nation faces, he means ordinary Americans who have never broken any law but who oppose his agenda. If everyone who opposes him is a white supremacist terrorist, then the nation has over a hundred million of them. Arrests and prosecutions on false pretenses will follow. That’s the threat that was contained in his words at Howard.

And ever so conveniently for Old Joe, no sooner had he uttered this false claim again at Howard on Saturday than a couple of hundred actual white supremacist terrorists miraculously materialized in Washington. All were young, physically fit men; not a single fat Nazi in the bunch. All wore the same blue shirt and khaki pants uniform, all with their faces covered, and once again, the feds showed no curiosity about who they are and made no attempt to determine where they came from or where they went.

Ask any normal person on the street, ask your mom, ask your sister, and they will be terrified of this clip and fall for it hook-line-and-sinker.”

Indeed they will. They still have no idea what game is being played. But as Old Joe’s henchmen continue to move to make it possible for only their point of view to be enunciated in the public square, their objectives will become obvious to everyone.

You Knew This Was Coming: NYC Catholic Church Hosts ‘God Is Trans’ Exhibit

You Knew This Was Coming: NYC Catholic Church Hosts ‘God Is Trans’ Exhibit

Well, this was inevitable. It was only a matter of time before Leftist Christians, marinating in the relentless insanity of their pet causes, would fashion gods in their own image: trans, queer, woke, and whatever else the Left is idolizing. The Church of St. Paul the Apostle, a Roman Catholic parish on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, has shown itself to be only too happy to forsake the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for the Left’s idols of the moment, so it was the perfect place for a recent exhibit celebrating everything the Left cherishes most: narcissism, perversion, delusion, and madness. The church has put up an exhibit entitled “God is Trans: A Queer Spiritual Journey.”

One never knows in these heady days of the woke Pope Francis, but this exhibit seems to run directly contrary to the Catholic Church’s position on these matters. Back in 2019, the Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education issued a document entitled “‘Male and Female He Created Them’: Towards a Path of Dialogue on the Question of Gender Theory in Education.” It stated that the transgender ideology was a “fictitious construct” and that the ideas of “intersex” or “transgender” led to “a masculinity or femininity that is ambiguous, even though (in a self-contradictory way), these concepts themselves actually presuppose the very sexual difference that they propose to negate or supersede.”

The Vatican added that transgenderism “has the effect of obscuring the fact that a person’s sex is a structural determinant of male or female identity.” In other words, you were born a boy or a girl. Your gender identity was not, as the fashionable parlance would have it, “assigned” to you. This is common-sense stuff, which is rare enough these days, and it didn’t fly at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle.

The UK’s Daily Mail reported Monday that the exhibit, which was created by an artist named Adah Unachukwu, “features somewhat abstract colorful paintings which appear to show where the personal meet[s] the spiritual, with videos of the artist among more traditional holy imagery.” That sounds innocuous enough, but the exhibit itself actually states: “God is Trans maps the queer spiritual journey by three significant points: Sacrifice, Identity, and Communion.” One painting, Sacrifice, addresses “the need to shed an old life and personhood in order to be able to focus on your spiritual need. There is no devil, just past selves.”

That last bit goes way beyond even what the advocates of transgender madness have asserted before. We’re told that calling a man who has decided he is a woman by his old male name is the unacceptable sin of “deadnaming,” but now at St. Paul’s, the former self of a person suffering from transgender madness is not just dead, but demonic. And the rest of the statement, about shedding the old life and personhood, is a woke caricature of the actual Christian faith, and of Jesus’ statement: “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24)

The exhibit inadvertently pointed up its own narcissism and self-absorption in saying: “What does holiness look like? What does your god look like? Are those two portrayals that can be merged?” The answer for the Left is that their god looks exactly like them, as they have made themselves into gods by claiming that sex is “assigned,” not embedded in every cell, and can be changed at will.

Not everyone was thrilled with this idolatry. The New York Post reported Sunday that one parishioner declared: “The church should not be promoting this. I understand there are transgender people. I pray for all people but enough is enough. It seems like they are trying to force the agenda on others.” Gee, ya think? The same person added: “Also when a friend asked a priest about this they didn’t answer. You can’t put this out on the altar and then hide. That’s what gets the church in trouble.” Indeed. If the clergymen at St. Paul’s are going to embrace and proselytize for woke pseudo-Christianity, they should own up proudly to what it is doing, not skulk around in the shadows hoping to snare the unwary.

This being Manhattan, others were quite happy with the exhibit. One woman said: “I don’t understand the art, but this church is very liberal, which is why I love this church. They are really in the present when others are not.” Great. But the idea of the Church is not to be “in the present,” but to express eternal truths. St. Paul’s has instead opted to push the fashions of the moment, bringing to mind another one of Jesus’ statements: “Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)

Biden Regime Still Shoveling Taxpayer Money into Afghanistan~Meanwhile, the Taliban is persecuting Christians


SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/biden-regime-still-shoveling-taxpayer-money-into-afghanistan/;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

A new inspector general’s report released Tuesday gives us the latest evidence of the perfidy and anti-Americanism of the Biden regime: even after the Taliban took over in that country in the wake of the regime’s catastrophically botched withdrawal of American troops, the American taxpayer remains the world’s largest donor to Afghanistan. This is beyond absurd, as the Taliban, which is inveterately hostile to the U.S., is inevitably going to obtain some or all of that money, and could conceivably use it to finance attacks on Americans and U.S. interests. Is that what the traitor class that is running the Biden regime wants?

The Washington Times reported Wednesday that “some $2.1 billion has flowed to Afghanistan since August of 2021.” Biden regime officials, of course, insist that this is humanitarian aid that is “going to assist Afghans and not feed into the Taliban’s treasury.” The obvious problem with this, however, is that “the special inspector general for Afghan reconstruction said officials can’t say for sure that the Taliban isn’t siphoning some of the money away from the groups the U.S. is funding.” Of course. Why wouldn’t they? And what could conceivably stop them? In light of that, and the nefarious uses to which the Taliban could put the money, we shouldn’t be sending a penny to Afghanistan. But clearly, Biden’s handlers have different priorities from those involving the safety and well-being of the American people.

Inspector General John F. Sopko stated: “Since the Taliban takeover, the U.S. government has sought to continue supporting the Afghan people without providing benefits for the Taliban regime. However, it is clear from our work that the Taliban is using various methods to divert U.S. aid dollars.” He “pointed to reports that the Taliban levies fee charges on nongovernmental organizations still operating in the country. And in some areas, Taliban officials have ordered NGOs to provide assistance to Taliban personnel before others.” And of course, the Biden regime’s State Department “doesn’t know how much assistance has been siphoned off in that manner.” Why would they? They’re too busy implementing Critical Race Theory and putting on drag shows.

Meanwhile, the Christian news organization Mission Network News reported on April 3 that “the Taliban are offering money for Afghans to turn in any Christians they know. And Afghans are desperate, further heightening the security risk [to] Christians.” This might lead some to think that the U.S. should continue the humanitarian aid, so as to relieve the Afghans’ plight and ease the pressure on the country’s tiny and embattled Christian minority. But U.S. taxpayer money appears to be going straight to the Taliban.

Evidence for this was provided late last year. Da Afghanistan Bank, Afghanistan’s Taliban-controlled central bank, tweeted the images on Nov. 29, Dec. 5, Dec. 6, and Dec. 14, 2022: massive stacks of American hundred-dollar bills, wrapped in plastic, bar-coded, and placed in boxes or blue plastic bags on the tarmac at the Kabul airport. The bank said this was $40 million in “humanitarian aid,” but said nothing about who had sent it, and one observer said that judging from the photos, there looked to be much more than $40 million flowing into the Taliban’s coffers. So who was funding the Taliban with tens of millions in untraceable cash?

The prime suspect, of course, was Old Joe Biden and his handlers.

On Aug. 31, 2021, Old Joe declared, “We will continue to support the Afghan people through diplomacy, international influence, and humanitarian aid.” Then in January 2022, National Security Council spokes wonk Emily Horne said proudly: “The United States is announcing a new contribution of more than $308 million in humanitarian assistance for the people of Afghanistan. This brings total US humanitarian aid in Afghanistan and for Afghan refugees in the region to nearly $782 million since October 2021, and we remain the single largest donor of humanitarian aid in Afghanistan.”

Dr. Niamatullah Ibrahimi, whom the Australian Broadcasting Corporation identifies as “an international relations lecturer and Afghanistan expert from La Trobe University,” said that it would not be difficult at all for the Taliban to hijack this aid money: “The distribution and dispersal of the money are not very transparent. There is very little that we know about how this money is used in Afghanistan and the mechanisms of control over aid delivery.”

Indeed. But no one seems to mind, and the money just keeps flowing in. What could possibly go wrong? Ask Afghanistan’s Christians.

Old Joe Biden Says With a Straight Face: ‘I’ve Proven Myself to Be Honorable’

Old Joe Biden Says With a Straight Face: ‘I’ve Proven Myself to Be Honorable'


SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/robert-spencer/2023/05/07/old-joe-biden-says-with-a-straight-face-ive-proven-myself-to-be-honorable-n1693330;

The least honorable president in American history had a softball interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle on Friday, in which he uttered one of the most outlandish lies of his entire life, which has been filled with his outlandish lies: “I think I’ve proven myself to be honorable, as well as effective.” As Matt Margolis noted Sunday, this was in the course of a paean of boasting from Old Joe Biden that included praise of his own wisdom and experience. But now Joe Biden would have us believe that he is honorable, too? Come on, man! This guy lies every time his lips move.

The part about Old Joe being effective, however, was actually true. If Biden wanted to weaken America (politically, militarily, and economically), erase the Southern border, antagonize our friends as well as our enemies worldwide, and advance the Left’s socialist, authoritarian agenda at the expense of the American people, then he has indeed done a bang-up job. If, on the other hand, he is really as America-First as he has been pretending to be lately, now that the 2024 campaign season is approaching, then he has been a galloping disaster as president, and just the opposite of effective. It all depends on your point of view, you see, and since Old Joe’s administration is dedicated to calling opposing views “disinformation” and silencing them accordingly, pretty soon we will all have to agree that his presidency has been remarkably effective.

But honorable? That Old Joe would even dare say this is staggering. The man is the most dedicated and relentless liar ever to occupy the Oval Office, and we’re talking here about a job that has been held by such skillful prevaricators as Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Richard M. Nixon. Biden has lied throughout his political career and long before it even started: on Dec. 1, 1965, the faculty of the Syracuse College of Law published a report about Young Joe, stating that Biden “used five pages from a published law review article without quotation or attribution” and recommended that he fail a legal methods course because of his plagiarism.

For years, Biden was so craven as to lie about the central tragedy of his life, the auto accident that took the life of his first wife Neilia. Old Joe repeatedly claimed that she was killed by a drunk driver; the driver, however, was not drunk, and the real story was that Neilia drove into the path of the oncoming truck. The driver’s daughter repeatedly asked Biden to apologize for lying about her father, who was driven into a deep depression by Biden’s public lies. True to dishonorable form, Old Joe never did apologize. Then in Sept. 1987, Biden torpedoed his own presidential campaign when he delivered a speech that lifted an entire story of his early life from a speech by British Labour leader Neil Kinnock.

The lying has continued since Old Joe began pretending to be president, and has gotten so bad, and so obvious, that the New York Times felt it necessary back in Oct. 2022 to do some damage control, informing us that “Biden, Storyteller in Chief, Spins Yarns That Often Unravel.” That’s all it is, see. It’s not as if he were a deeply dishonest man or anything like that. But even the Times couldn’t make Joe look good when it started ticking off some examples: “The exaggerated biography that Mr. Biden tells includes having been a fierce civil rights activist who was repeatedly arrested. He has claimed to have been an award-winning student who earned three degrees. And last week, speaking on the hurricane-devastated island of Puerto Rico, he said he had been ‘raised in the Puerto Rican community at home, politically.’”

The lies have gone on and on. On the campaign trail in 2019, he told a story about a Navy captain who tried to refuse a Silver Star after trying and failing to save a wounded comrade. The story wasn’t true, as even the Washington Post admitted, but instead of discarding it after it was publicly revealed to be false, Old Joe made it about his family. In Dec. 2022, Biden retold the same story, but this time it was about his uncle Frank being awarded a Purple Heart. That version was a lie as well. And most recently, Biden has been insisting that his notorious son Hunter has “done nothing wrong.”

Old Joe Biden is a lot of things. “Honorable” isn’t even close to being one of them.

Pope in Hungary: It is ‘sad and painful’ to close doors to people who are ‘unlike us’~Pope says of Christianity and Islam that ‘our common commitment is to a good life’

“Let us open the doors”: Pope celebrates Mass in Budapest with interfaith leaders

Hungary has much to teach the Pope about responsibility to one’s own household. The Pope is more moved by illegal economic migrants than he is by Christians being slaughtered in Africa and the Middle East.

In 2021, Pope Francis urged Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban to take in more migrants, “opening ourselves to the thirst of men and women of our time.” On a recent visit to Hungary, the Pope again urged Orban to take in migrants and even became political in urging an end to “self-referential forms of populism” in Europe. He equated open-door migration to Christianity.

ABC reported that “while Orbán’s government has consistently rejected asylum-seekers from the Middle East and Africa, around 2.5 million Ukrainians fleeing war in their country found open doors.” Orban has made his position clear on numerous occasions as to why he has closed Hungary’s doors to the mainly Muslim migrants flowing in from the Middle East and Africa. It was all about national security and preserving Hungary’s culture. He stated in 2021 that “migrant armies are banging on Europe’s doors, on the doors that seal off migration routes on land and at sea.”

In contrast, the UK projects that 56,000 illegal migrants will enter the country via the English Channel this year. Serious criminals — including murderers, terrorists, and rapists — have been found among English Channel migrants. The situation has prompted UK Immigration Minister Robert Jenrick to warn that illegal migrants “cannibalize” communities by importing “different lifestyles.” Italy has also now declared a state of emergency over its own influx of illegal economic migrants from Africa.

Hungary has chosen to preserve its values, protecting its citizens from the threat of jihad, Sharia no-go zonesSharia patrolshigh crime, Islamic supremacism, sex assaults, “Islamic separatism” and the like. The small nation has also been spending tens of millions of dollars to rebuild churches and Christian communities destroyed by jihadis in the Middle East. So this is not about “racism,” as the Pope also suggested by saying that it was “sad and painful” to see doors closed to people who were “unlike us.”

Actions speak louder than words. Until the Pope enables opening the doors of the Vatican, including those of his own quarters, to the mainly Muslim migrants from Africa and warmly welcomes all of the illegal, unvetted migrants,  he should carefully consider his words to Hungary. He should also tell the victims of the worst crimes — including victims of terror — to their faces that open-door migration policies are a positive good.

Hungary has much to teach the Pope about responsibility to one’s own household. The Pope is more moved by illegal economic migrants than he is by Christians being slaughtered in Africa and the Middle East.

“Pope Francis urges Hungarians to ‘open doors’ to migrants,” BBC, May 1, 2023:

Pope Francis has urged Hungarians to “open doors” to migrants, ending his visit to the country led by a nationalist anti-immigration cabinet.

Speaking at an open-air mass in the capital Budapest, the pontiff said it was “sad and painful” to see doors closed to people who were “unlike us”.

Up to 100,000 people attended the mass, including Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Mr Orban has criticised migration, building a barbed-wire border fence to stop migrants crossing into Hungary.

Addressing the crowd near the Hungarian parliament building on Sunday, Pope Francis pleaded to everyone – including “those with political and social responsibilities” – to be more open.

He was speaking about “the closed doors of our selfishness with regard to others… the doors we close towards those who are foreign or unlike us, towards migrants or the poor”…..


Pope says of Christianity and Islam that ‘our common commitment is to a good life’

All right, but the definition of “a good life” differs sharply in both religions. The pope would stoutly deny this and call anyone who pointed it out “Islamophobic,” but nonetheless, it is the case.

Qur’an 98:4-6: “Nor were the people of the book divided until after the clear proof came to them. And they are not ordered to do anything else but serve Allah, keeping religion pure for him, as hanifs, and to establish prayer and to give alms. That is true religion. Indeed, the unbelievers among the people of the book and the idolaters will remain in the fire of Gehenna. They are the most vile of created beings.”

Qur’an 5:14: “And with those who say: Indeed, we are Christians, we made a covenant, but they forgot a part of what they were reminded about. Therefore we have stirred up enmity and hatred among them until the day of resurrection, when Allah will inform them of their handiwork.”

Qur’an 5:17: “They indeed have disbelieved who say, Indeed, Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary. Say, Who then can do anything against Allah, if he had willed to destroy the Messiah son of Mary, and his mother and everyone on earth? To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them. He creates what he wills. And Allah is able to do all things.”

Qur’an 4:157: “And because of their saying, We killed the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, the messenger of Allah, they did not kill him nor crucify him, but it seemed so to them, and indeed, those who disagree about this are in doubt about it, they have no knowledge of it except pursuit of a supposition, they did not kill him for certain.

Qur’an 4:171: “O people of the book, do not exaggerate in your religion or say anything about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and his word that he conveyed to Mary, and a spirit from him. So believe in Allah and his messengers, and do not say Three, Stop, it is better for you. Allah is only one God. It is far removed from his transcendent majesty that he should have a son. Everything that is in the heavens and everything that is on the earth is his. And Allah is sufficient as defender.”

Qur’an 5:116: “And when Allah said, O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say to mankind, Take me and my mother as two gods besides Allah? He said, Be glorified. It was not for me to say what I had no right to say. If I said it, then you know it. You know what is in my mind, and I do not know what is in your mind. Indeed, you, only you, are the knower of hidden things.”

Qur’an 19:35: “It is not fitting for Allah that he should take to himself a son. Glory be to him, when he decrees a thing, he says to it only, Be, and it is.”

Qur’an 9:30-31: “And the Jews say, Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say, The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the statements of those who disbelieved before. May Allah curse them. How perverse they are. They have taken as lords besides Allah their rabbis and their monks and the Messiah, the son of Mary, when they were called to worship only one God. There is no God except him. May he be glorified from all that they ascribe as partners.”

Qur’an 9:29: “Fight against those do not believe in Allah or the last day, and do not forbid what Allah and his messenger have forbidden, and do not follow the religion of truth, even if they are among the people of the book, until they pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.”

“Pope: Christianity, Islam share common commitment to good life,” by Francesca Merlo, Vatican News, May 4, 2023 (thanks to Tom):

Addressing participants at the VI Colloquium between the Dicastery for Interreligious Dialogue and the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies, Pope Francis encouraged each member, noting that with this being their sixth encounter, their perseverance is clear.

Commonalities between religions
The theme of the colloquium, “Creative Commonalities between Christianity and Islam”, the Pope said, reflects how “each of us is like the link in a long chain: many people have preceded us on the beautiful and challenging road of encounter and friendship, others will follow us, as we hope and pray, confirming that feeling of brotherhood that is the foundation of relations between peoples”….

Bringing his message to a close, the Pope noted that the dialogue practiced and promoted requires a style of sincerity and mutual respect if it is to be fruitful, and requires “an awareness of both convergences and divergences”. He spoke of compassion for all, before adding that “we also believe that not everything ends with death, but that there is another life, eternal, where we will give account to God for our actions and receive reward or punishment”.

Finally, the Pope noted that “our common commitment is to a good life” and this, he concluded, “gives glory to God and joy to all those we meet on our earthly pilgrimage”.

Andrew Tate challenges people to desecrate Qur’an after Satanist tears up Bible, many take him up on it

The notorious “influencer” and convert to Islam, Andrew Tate, who once said that “ISIS are the real Muslims,” sparked outrage when he issued a challenge to Satanists who shredded a Bible.

But Tate’s invitation backfired:

Social media users accepted the “challenge” by Tate and started posting photographs and videos desecrating the Quran. They trended #AndrewTateQuranChallenge to post on the media. There were images of burnt Quran, pork and bacon placed on the open Quran, the holy book in the mouth of a pig and other derogatory imagery against the Quran.

As Hindustan Times reported, Tate’s tweet “quickly sparked backlash and accusations of ‘Islamophobia’, with many people criticizing Tate for promoting intolerance and disrespect towards the Muslim faith.”

Even Muslims aren’t spared charges of “Islamophobia,” no matter what the intent. In Tate’s case, he was displaying bravado with a hint of a threat to those who might take up his challenge. Others saw it as an insult to issue such a dare. Then there was Tate’s unintentional defense of Christianity. The truth is that Christianity is the real religion of peace, tried and tested. You won’t hear about Christians beheading, murdering, maiming, or mobbing anyone who tears up a Bible or offends Christianity. And the reason certainly is not that Christians don’t feel offended or hurt. It’s because there is nothing in Christianity that calls for the death of anyone who blasphemes, unlike Islam:

A blind man had a slave-mother who used to abuse the Prophet (peace be upon him) and disparage him. He forbade her, but she did not stop. He rebuked her but she did not give up her habit. One night she began to slander the Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace) and abuse him. So he took a dagger, placed it on her belly, pressed it, and killed her. A child who came between her legs was smeared with the blood that was there. When the morning came, the Prophet (peace be upon him) was informed about it. He assembled the people and said: I adjure by Allah the man who has done this action and I adjure him by my right to him that he should stand up. Jumping over the necks of the people and trembling the man stood up. He sat before the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said: Messenger of Allah! I am her master; she used to abuse you and disparage you. I forbade her, but she did not stop, and I rebuked her. but she did not abandon her habit. I have two sons like pearls from her, and she was my companion. Last night she began to abuse and disparage you. So I took a dagger, put it on her belly and pressed it till I killed her. Thereupon the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Oh be witness, no retaliation is payable for her blood. 
Abu Dawud Book 38 no 4348

As for the gutless Satanists who tore up the Bible, they, too, know that Christianity is a religion of peace and that they had nothing to fear.

“Recent convert Andrew Tate challenges people to desecrate Quran and social media gets flooded with people accepting the challenge: What started the fiasco,” Opindia, May 3, 2023:

On May 1, former kickboxer and social media influencer Andrew Tate who recently converted to Islam, challenged people to desecrate the Quran. He was irked by a video from SatanCon 2023 where a Satanist tore down Bible pages and chanted ‘hail Satan’. Tate said, “Try the Quran if you’re so brave :)”. The emoji he used at the end of the tweet gave the impression that he wanted to say if anyone tried the same with Quran, he or she would not be spared. However, it did not go well with the netizens.

Social media users accepted the “challenge” by Tate and started posting photographs and videos desecrating the Quran. They trended #AndrewTateQuranChallenge to post on the media. There were images of burnt Quran, pork and bacon placed on the open Quran, the holy book in the mouth of a pig and other derogatory imagery against the Quran.

For those who are unaware, SatanCon is a formal ceremony that ‘renounces’ symbols of oppression by ripping up a Bible and a ‘Thin Blue Line’ flag that represents police. The video that Tate quoted showed a woman tearing up Quran and chanting ‘Hail Satan’. SatanCon 2023 was a three-day event that took place in Boston, USA. It was hosted at the Marriott Copley Place by the Satanic Temple. The event marked the 10-year anniversary of the Temple.

In December 2022, Andrew Tate, a former Orthodox Christian embraced Islam. Since then, his Muslim fan base has increased exponentially. Tate was arrested and jailed in Romania as part of a human trafficking and rape investigation. Tate’s residence in Bucharest, where he was held alongside his brother Tristan, was raided by the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT)….

Spain: Muslim who attacked priest with machete inside church said Christian faith ‘must be eliminated’

Not that this has anything to do with Islam!

“Islamic terrorist in Jan. 25 attacks in Spain said Christian faith ‘must be eliminated,’” ACI Prensa, April 28, 2023 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

On Jan. 25 a young Moroccan national identified as Yassine Kanjaa carried out jihadist attacks in Algeciras, Spain, killing a sacristan and seriously wounding a priest in two different incidents.

The General Commissariat of Information, an intelligence service under Spain’s National Police, compiled two reports on the attacks dated Jan. 29 and Jan. 30. Europa Press recently gained access to them and on April 26 published details reconstructing events.

The reports state that according to Father Antonio Rodríguez Lucena, who was wounded, the attacker was not provoked: “Nobody did anything that could bother him.”

In his testimony, the priest said that Kanjaa told a parishioner that “the Christian faith is negative and must be eliminated.”

According to the reports to which Europa Press has had access, the attack began at 6:30 p.m. local time when Kanjaa entered San Isidro Church in Algecrias and began to argue with the parishioners.

After the terrorist stated his desire to eliminate the Christian faith, he “vehemently” said that “the only religion to follow is the Islamic religion,” according to the testimony of the priest who survived the attack.

The woman who opened the church daily testified that the attacker took a Bible that was there and started hitting the seating with it. She confronted the man, managed to snatch the Bible away from him, and asked him to leave.

At 7 p.m. the individual returned to the area outside the church. The faithful who were attending Mass could hear him shouting in Arabic. After Mass, Rodríguez wanted to find out what was happening.

At that moment, “the suspect, carrying a large machete in his hand, suddenly attacked the priest causing serious injuries,” the report states.

In his statement to police, the priest said that “a man dressed in black entered, who was heading towards the altar without saying anything.”

The priest waited for him at the altar with the idea of having an open way to escape. When the man got to the altar he brandished his weapon, which the priest hadn’t realized he was carrying.

When the priest tried to flee, he stumbled and felt the weapon strike him. The parishioners attended to the wound and shut the church door so the attacker couldn’t get back inside.

The weapon, according to another witness, was “a large blue machete.” Others described it as a “knife” or “a kind of katana,” a curved Japanese sword.

After this attack, Kanjaa went to the Virgin of La Palma church located about 650 feet away. According to a witness, along the way he ran into a Moroccan passerby, whom without saying a word he punched in the face, breaking his glasses. He then struck him twice more and accused him of practicing the wrong religion.

When he got to the Virgin of La Palma church, the attacker saw the sacristan, Diego Valencia, leaving through a back door of the church.

According to the police, Kanjaa struck him with several initial blows with his weapon. The sacristan tried to flee but the attacker caught up with him in Plaza Alta, threw him to the ground, gripped the katana with both hands and “raising his gaze to the sky and shouting a few words in Arabic, among which was heard ‘Allah,’ dealt him one last fatal blow.”…

“Make ready for them all that you can of force and of warhorses, so that by them you may strike terror in the enemy of Allah and your enemy…” (Qur’an 8:60)

“Ten Days of Terror and Death in Congo as Eighty Christians are Killed by the ADF,” International Christian Concern, April 28, 2023:

04/28/2023 DRC (International Christian Concern) – The Church in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) continues to bear the brunt of terrorism from the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), one of the many armed groups operating across the region that has vowed to kill more Christians to please Allah.

In ten days, North Kivu province has seen over 80 people killed and hundreds abducted by the ADF extremist group that claims alliance with the Islamic State. For decades, the ADF has killed, maimed, abducted, and displaced millions of people in North Kivu despite the presence of peacekeepers and local and regional troops in the troubled region.

In a statement, the Vicar of Babwisi Parish, where dozens of Christians have been killed, said, “April has turned out to be a month of bloodshed ironical of the expectation of having peace after celebrating the death and the resurrection of Christ Jesus. From the 7th to the 18th, the killings of Christians were numerous in the following entities: Mavete, Musandaba, Katere, and Mamungelesi, all in the West Oicha.

The vicar went on to break down the figures, “On Friday, April 7, and Saturday, April 8, 2023, 26 people were killed by the ADF rebels in Mavete and Musandaba villages, Beni territory. Among them were members of Babwisi parish which is Beni diocese, where eight men were killed leaving widows and children.”

“On Tuesday 18th April 2023, 45 people were killed by these same ADF rebels this time in Katere and Mamungelesi in one night of unfathomable horror, where men, women, and children were slaughtered like chicken. During his attack, we lost one of our evangelists together with his wife. His name is Emmanuel Kambale. The parish is devastated. In addition, over 30 people were abducted and their whereabouts are unknown.”…

Islamic law forbids proselytizing for other religions.

“VIDEO: Muslims harass Christians in Gothenburg: ‘Allahu akbar,'” translated from “VIDEO: Muslimer stör ut kristna i Göteborg: ‘Allahu akbar,’” by Simon Kristoffersson, Samnytt, April 24, 2023

This weekend, a group of Christians tried to hold talks in central Gothenburg, but instead they were exposed to a large gang chanting “Takbir – Allahu akbar”.

It was on Saturday that the Christian group distributed materials and preached in Nordstan. A group of youths surrounded and then tried to disrupt the preachers.

“They have done this several times. There is probably a connection between their holiday and their actions,” says one of the preachers to Samnytt.

Law enforcement officers turned the gang away from the scene.

EX-CATHOLIC MIKE GENDRON: An Urgent Plea to Roman Catholics

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

What can we say to Catholics who are stubbornly happy with their religion? How should we respond when they say, "I was born a Catholic and I will die a Catholic?" Is there a way we can warn our loved ones of their pending peril without harming our relationships? Yes, we must speak the truth in love, with compassion, and pray for our Sovereign Lord to open their hearts (Acts 16:14). We must warn them that sin has separated them from God (Isa. 59:2). As ambassadors for Christ, we must beg them on behalf of Christ to be reconciled to God (2 Cor. 5:20).
Following are some biblical and persuasive heart-to-heart conversations we can have with our Catholic friends and loved ones.
What if Our Roles Were Reversed?
If our roles were reversed, I would want you to pursue me with the truth until I repented and believed God's Word. Never would I want you to give up on me, because so much is at stake. I love you too much to let you march proudly down the wide road to destruction without warning you. There is a reason why the Lord Jesus said very few find the narrow way that leads to life (Mat. 7:14). It is because the god of this world (Satan) has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God (2 Cor. 4:4). One of Satan's most powerful tools to blind unbelievers is religious pride and indoctrination. The only way this veil of blindness can be removed is when you turn to Christ (2 Cor. 3:14-16). This means you must turn away from your priests, who are false mediators, and turn to Christ, who is the only mediator between God and man (1 Tim. 2:5). As God's perfect man and man's perfect God, He is worthy of all your undivided trust and faith!
Only the Gospel Can Transform Sinners into Saints
Please understand that we were all conceived in sin and born sinners (Psalm 51:5). There is more bad news because there is no human cure for sin. Sacraments, penance, indulgences, the Mass, and good works can never cancel the punishment for sin, which is an eternity in hell away from the presence of God (Rev. 20:13-15). However, there is good news! God's love and mercy provided the one way to be saved! A divine cure is available free for the asking because of a love story written in blood on a wooden cross 2000 years ago. The Lord Jesus Christ died as a sinless substitute for sinners who would repent and trust Him alone for the forgiveness of sin and reconciliation with God (1 Pet. 3:18). He died once for all sin, for all time; there are no more offerings for sin (Hebrews 10:10-18). Three days later, God raised Him from the dead for our justification and to show that divine justice was satisfied (Rom. 4:25). This is the greatest news a condemned sinner on death row could ever hear!
There Is Only One Infallible Source for Truth
Did you know that the nature of deception is that people never know they are deceived until they are confronted with the truth? Many Catholics first found out they were deceived when they began reading the Bible. Once in bondage to religious deception, they were set free by the truth (John 8:31-32). I plead with you to trust Jesus, who is the personification of truth (John 14:6). He came to testify to the truth and everyone who is of the truth hears His voice (John 18:37). His Word must become your supreme authority for truth because it is the only infallible source to protect us from the lies and deception of false teachers (John 17:17).
Test the Uninspired Words of Men with the Inspired Word of God
Please understand the crucial difference between the Bible and religion. The Bible is what God says, while religion is what man says God says. You can go directly to the source for truth and test the uninspired words of men with the inspired Word of God (Acts 17:11). We know that all Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16). That means Scripture is our divine authority for exposing what is false and correcting the errors. God has left us with His Word so that we can avoid being deceived by false teachers. Did you know that the Catholic teaching on venial sin is a perpetuation of the first lie of Satan in the garden? The serpent told Eve "You surely will not die" if you disobey God (Gen. 3:4). The lie of venial sin is reproved by Scripture, which declares all sins are punished by death (Rom. 6:23).
The Promise of the Gospel Is Eternal Life
Please know that Catholicism withholds the Gospel's promise of eternal life from its people. Instead, it offers "conditional life" by teaching you must attain salvation by what you DO instead of what Christ has DONE. This makes your eternal destiny conditional because you will never know in this life if you have done enough to merit the glory of heaven. The Catholic Church deceives you by distorting the Gospel and denying the sufficiency and finished work of Jesus (John 19:30; Gal. 1:6-9). You have been misled into believing the work of redemption must continue on Catholic altars. Please reject this false and fatal gospel and put all your faith in what Christ has already DONE. When you do, God will give you the assurance of eternal life (1 John 5:13). There is no greater joy and peace than to know the moment you take your last breath you will be in the presence of your Lord and Savior forever!
Members of the True Church Will Never Perish
Your priests have indoctrinated you with a false security that you belong to the one true church founded by Christ. Yet, the Catholic Church looks nothing like the first-century church. It drifted into apostasy when it was no longer submitted to the supreme authority of Scripture. The apostles warned that apostates would depart from the faith of the apostles and follow doctrines of demons, including forbidding the clergy to marry (1 Tim. 4:1-3). Jesus said there would be many, not few, false Christians who called Him Lord but will not enter into heaven (Mat. 7:21-23).
The true Church is built upon the one foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone (Eph. 2:20). It upholds the doctrines they preached and warns about traditions of men that invalidate the Word of God (Mark 7:13). This is the only Church in which no one member can perish or be cast away (John 6:37-40). This is the Church to which the Lord Jesus promised, "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matt. 16:18). The Lord Jesus purchased this church with His own blood and He is its only Head (Acts 20:28). It is the Church which man enters as he is born of the Spirit (1 Cor. 12:13). If anyone does not belong to the one true church at the end of their days, it will have been much better if they had never been born.
Religion Cannot Save Anyone
I recognize that you are proud of your religion and are committed to it, but religion cannot save you. If anyone had reason to boast in his religion, it was the apostle Paul. He was passionately religious, zealous for good deeds, and blameless and righteous according to the law. Yet, he counted it all loss for the sake of Christ. Paul realized his righteousness fell short of the perfect righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. He exchanged his religion for an eternal relationship with Christ (Phil. 3:3-9). It is my heart's desire that you do the same. One day you will stand before the Lord Jesus Christ and He will either be a merciful Savior or a sin-avenging judge. If you have not believed His Gospel, you will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power (2 Thes. 1:8-9). God's Gospel is a message to believe, an invitation to accept, and a command to obey. I plead with you to come to Jesus, with empty hands of faith, before it is too late.

Minnesota Legislation Seeks to Normalize Pedophilia as a Sexual Orientation

Minnesota Legislation Seeks to Normalize Pedophilia as a Sexual Orientation


SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2023/04/26/minnesota-legislation-seeks-to-normalize-pedophilia-as-a-sexual-orientation-n1690588;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Earlier this year I noted that the mainstream acceptance of transgenderism would be the precursor to the normalization of pedophilia. The evidence to support this was quite clear. And I’m sorry to say that I was right. The Minnesota legislature is in the process of changing the legal definition of “sexual orientation” which literally opens the door to mainstreaming pedophilia.

Here’s how it’s being done. The bill modifies the existing Minnesota law that designates sexual orientation as a protected category, making it unlawful to discriminate based on sexual orientation within the state.

The first thing it does is adds a definition for gender identity:

Section 1. Minnesota Statutes 2022, section 363A.03, is amended by adding a subdivision to read:

Subd. 50. Gender identity. “Gender identity” means a person’s inherent sense of being a man, woman, both, or neither. A person’s gender identity may or may not correspond to their assigned sex at birth or to their primary or secondary sex characteristics. A person’s  gender identity is not necessarily visible to others.

But this is not even the most disturbing part of the legislation. The legislation amends Sec. 2. Minnesota Statutes 2022, section 363A.03, subdivision 44, to read as follows:

Subd. 44. Sexual orientation. “Sexual orientation” means having or being perceived as having an emotional, physical, or sexual attachment to another person without regard to the sex of that person or having or being perceived as having an orientation for such attachment, or having or being perceived as having a self-image or identity not traditionally associated with one’s biological maleness or femaleness. “Sexual orientation” does not include a physical or sexual attachment to children by an adult.

That portion striking out the part that reads, “‘Sexual orientation’ does not include a physical or sexual attachment to children by an adult,” is not a mistake. The Democratic majority in the House of Representatives has made the decision to eliminate a clause that explicitly excluded pedophilia from being considered a valid sexual orientation.

This doesn’t mean that pedophilia will be legalized in Minnesota… yet… but by specifically removing the clause excluding pedophilia as a protected sexual orientation, pedophiles will become a protected class, subject to the same legal protections against discrimination currently enjoyed by gays, lesbians, transgenders, etc.

Related: The Trans Movement Will Be the Catalyst for Normalizing Pedophilia

Do you think it’s an accident that this clause is being removed at the same time “gender identity” is being added? Of course, it isn’t. I told you that the transgender movement would be the catalyst for normalizing pedophilia, and here’s your proof. Minnesota Democrats clamoring to co-author this bill, and if this comes up for a vote, they’ll vote for this because none of them will want to go on record opposing adding gender identity as a protected class.

Make no mistake about it. This is only the first step.

Nigeria: Muslims have murdered 52,250 Christians in jihad attacks since 2009

Time for the UN or Human Rights Watch or Amnesty International to issue a new weeper about “Islamophobia.”

“Over 50,000 Christians Killed in Nigeria Since 2009 Islamic Uprising: Intersociety Report,” by Jude Atemanke, AciAfrica, April 14, 2023 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Thousands of Christians have been killed in Nigeria since the Islamist uprising began in 2009, a recent investigation has established, further revealing that “1,041 defenseless Christians” were put to death in the first 100 days of 2023.

The latest report by the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) indicates, “Since the 2009 Islamic uprising, 52,250 Christians and 34,000 moderate Muslims have been butchered or hacked to death.”

“30,250 of those have been killed since 2015, when President Muhhamadu Buhari came to power,” authors of the report by the Intersociety, a research and investigative rights group, which has been monitoring and investigating religious persecution and other forms of religious violence by State and non-State actors across Nigeria since 2010, say.

According to the report by the human rights group that does research and investigation by direct contacts with the victims, eyewitnesses, media tracking, review of credible local and international reports, interviews and closed sources among other methods, thousands of Christian deaths are attributed to “Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen”.

“The 52,250 Christian deaths in Nigeria in fourteen years recorded addition of 9,250 Christian deaths from the July 2021 figure of 43,000; out of which, Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen accounted for 6,000 Christian deaths and security forces, Jihadist Fulani Bandits, BH, ISWAP, Ansaru and others 3,250,” the report released on Tuesday, April 11, indicates.

“Buhari’s radical Islamism since 2015 had killed 30,250 Christians and attacked 18,000 churches and 2,200 Christian schools,” the authors of the report say, and add that since 2009, “14 million Christians have been uprooted and forced to flee their homes and 800 Christian communities attacked”.

Authors of the Intersociety report say that “Christians of Benue, Kaduna, Plateau, Taraba, Niger, Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Kebbi worst affected in the attacks,” and that Christians living in Eastern Nigeria have been “worst hit in Nigerian military killings and property destructions on ethno-religious grounds.”…

In the 2023 investigation, Intersociety researchers found that “no fewer than 1,041 defenseless Christians were hacked to death by Nigeria’s Jihadists in the first 100 days of 2023 or 1st Jan to 10th April 2023.”

Their investigations established that “not less than 380 Christians were slaughtered by Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen in 100 days in Benue, 102 in Kaduna, 150 in Christian parts of Niger State (Paikoro, Munya, Shiroro, Rafi, etc), 100 deaths in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa by BH/ISWAP); 32 Christian deaths in Plateau, 20 in Ondo, 11 in Edo, 10 in Delta as well as Kebbi 10 deaths, Bauchi 9 deaths, Taraba 14 deaths, Katsina 10 deaths, Enugu 6 deaths; and 60 deaths arising from the military killings in the East since Jan 2023 and others 50 deaths.”

“Also, no fewer than 707 Christians were abducted within the same period; out of which Niger State recorded more than 200 abductions including 14th March 2023 abduction of over 100 Christians in Adunu (Paikoro),” the Intersociety researchers say in the report signed by their Board Chair & Lead-Researcher, Emeka Umeagbalasi….

The latest Intersociety report also makes reference to its 2022 report, saying, “5,068 Christians (were) hacked to death in 2022 and hundreds disappeared without trace.”

The organization “emotionally” dedicates its investigative report to “1,041 slain and disappeared victims of the Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen and other Jihadists’ genocidal attacks carried out across Nigeria in the first 100 days of 2023.”

California Church that Defied Mask Mandate Must Pay $1.2 Million in Fines

California Church that Defied Mask Mandate Must Pay $1.2 Million in Fines

Calvary Chapel in San Jose, Calif., is a large evangelical church that defied state and local orders to mask up during services and maintain “social distancing.” Of course, we now know that mask-wearing was about as effective against spreading COVID-19 as wearing a necklace of newt entrails and “social distancing” was a bad joke.

But it’s not the science. It’s that the church defied authorities. So now Calvary must pay the state of California $1.2 million in fines because they got bureaucrats mad at them.

So there.

Is there anyone who doesn’t think $1.2 million for not wearing masks is fair? Is it even reasonable? Vindictiveness should not be a part of the American judicial system ever, and no rational, sane person can say that a $1.2 million fine for disobeying COVID-19 mitigation efforts that have now been found to be wildly ineffective is anything but judicial vengeance.

Associated Press:

Calvary Chapel sued the county, arguing the health orders violated its religious freedom. Various courts have ruled either in favor the church or the county.

The church and its pastors were previously held in contempt of court and fined for violating limits on indoor public gatherings. But a state appellate court reversed those decisions last year, saying that the restrictions on indoor worship services were stricter than for secular activities such as going to grocery stores.

The county continued to seek fines for violations of mask-wearing regulations.

The judge wrote an opinion that was so 2020.

“It should appear clear to all — regardless of religious affiliation — that wearing a mask while worshiping one’s god and communing with other congregants is a simple, unobtrusive, giving way to protect others while still exercising your right to religious freedom,” Superior Court Judge Evette D. Pennypacker wrote in the April 7 ruling imposing the fines.

The judge was doin’ the time warp with County Counsel James Williams.

“The county’s response to the pandemic, including the health officer’s public health orders and enforcement against entities that refused to follow the law, saved thousands of lives and resulted in one of the lowest death rates of any community in the United States,” Williams said.

That there’s no evidence for that is immaterial. It sounds wonderful.

But this is all about obedience and Calvary refused to obey and encouraged others to disobey. The church, Judge Pennypacker wrote, flouted public health orders “and urged others to do so ‘who cares what the cost,’ including death.”

Take that, you devout Christians, you.

That bit about “who cares what the cost including death” is not applying any law — it’s a rhetorical flourish in a legal opinion that doesn’t belong. Pennypacker is way off the reservation by claiming that the Calvary church leaders didn’t care if people died. That’s a ludicrous statement and reveals the judge’s anger that her previous orders were not obeyed.

Anger has no place in a legal opinion.

This one will make its way through the courts and may even wind up at the Supreme Court. What’s certain is that these fines are meant to retaliate against a group of people who defied public health orders.

Canada: On Good Friday, Ottawa school board’s gender consultant calls Jesus a drag queen

Canadian School Board Trans and Gender Student Support Coordinator Tweets That Jesus Was drag queen

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The obtuseness, offensiveness, and danger of woke doctrine are growing on a daily basis. Ottawa-Carleton District School Board’s Trans and Gender Diverse Student Support Coordinator tweeted this message about Jesus on Good Friday:

Not very long ago, Sara Savoia would have been ridiculed, but the madness of the over-the-top purveyors of wokeness has become all too familiar.

Robes are worn by Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican priests, Hindu priests, Buddhist monks, and others. Savoia’s reasoning extends to insinuating that they are all “drag queens.” It is reckless for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board to pay a wage to Savoia to spread what education advocate Cristina Bairos Fernandes accurately described as “mind-bending” disrespect. She is unfit to be around children.

Would anyone be willing to bet that Savoia would never have tweeted a similar message about Muhammad? Or about a revered figure from any other faith but Christianity? And that the school would have instantly fired her had she done so?

“Ottawa school board’s gender consultant ripped for Good Friday tweet calling Jesus a drag queen: ‘Disrespect,'” by Taylor Penley, Fox News, April 12, 2023:

A since-deleted tweet from an Ontario, Canada school board’s gender consultant garnered criticism on Good Friday when she posted a message stating that Jesus was a drag queen.

“Here’s a reminder that Jesus himself was a radical activist … and a drag queen. And also not white,” Sara Savoia, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board’s Trans and Gender Diverse Student Support Coordinator, wrote in part, including a painted illustration of Jesus surrounded by several children.

The illustration itself showed Jesus wearing a white robe and contained the text: “Oh look, it’s a man in a dress telling stories to children.”

The tweet ended by wishing a Happy Easter to all who were celebrating.

Savoia, who uses she/they pronouns, according to her Twitter profile, manages the district’s affairs regarding gender identity, sexual orientation and other LGTBQ+ rights.

She deleted the tweet after a firestorm erupted and locked the account shortly after, prompting users to take their criticism elsewhere.

Chanel Pfahl, an Ottawa resident and education advocate, shared a screenshot to her own account where she captioned the image with, “Happy Easter everyone! And a reminder from OCDSB’s gender consultant:”

“You’ve gotta be kidding me,” one user weighed in.

Education advocate Cristina Bairos Fernandes wrote, “The disrespect is mind bending.”

“She’s trolling us right?” a third wrote. Others criticized the comment for insinuating all who wear traditional Middle Eastern attire are “drag queens,” ripping the remark as “out-of-touch.”….

Jihadi Control and Influence In U.S. Evangelical Community is Overwhelming


SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2023/04/jihadi-control-and-influence-in-u-s-evangelical-community-is-overwhelming;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

To understand the capture of the U.S. evangelical community by the Global Islamic Movement is to truly be overwhelmed.

For the purposes of this article, UTT is highlighting a few big pieces of the puzzle in our ongoing effort to help American Christians realize the adversaries of Jesus – and, therefore, the adversaries of liberty – are savvy and advancing a massive counterintelligence effort that has many Christian leaders under its control, whether the Christians intend that or not.

Let’s set the table with the following internationally known evangelical leaders/organizations promotion of the Global Jihadi Movement (click links on “here” below):

  1. Nationally known pastor Jack Hibbs advancing the work of a Muslim Brotherhood operative here
  2. Rick Warren’s work with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s ISNA here
  3. Josh McDowell’s “Sharia Love” efforts here
  4. Matt Chandler’s “outreach” to Hamas/MB groups here
  5. The National Council of Churches supports Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood and works with its leaders here
  6. The World Evangelical Association support for international jihadi information operations here
  7. The National Association of Evangelicals Chairman of the Board, John K. Jenkins, Sr. hosts the leader of the Global Jihadi Movement’s key line of operation – Interfaith Outreach – here

(L to R) Rabbi David Saperstein, Pastor John K. Jenkins Sr, MWL Secretary General Mohammad Al-Issa, Pastor Bob Roberts Jr (Dallas), Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Magid

For a deeper dive, as noted in example 7 above, we will look at the “Christian” media outlet All Arab News.

UTT assesses All Arab News as a hostile information operation acting on behalf of the Global Jihadi Movement, and likely its communist partners.

What evidence exists that All Arab News works with jihadis?

The leading advisor on the Advisory Board for All Arab News is Mohammad bin al Issa, the Secretary General of the Muslim World League.

The Muslim World League (MWL) was created in Saudi Arabia in 1962 by Saudi leadership and the International Muslim Brotherhood. The MWL’s Secretary General is appointed by the Saudi Crown Prince, and MWL is directly tied to the Saudi government. The MWL has many “humanitarian” and “relief” organizations as a part of its network, many of which have had their assets frozen by the U.S. government for directly supporting significant terrorist operations worldwide. Finally, the Muslim World League is directly tied to senior Al Qaeda leadership and terrorist organizations and operations around the world.

See evidence of MWL’s ties to Al Qaeda and other terrorist networks HEREHERE, and HERE.

To be clear, numerous international Saudi charities controlled by the Saudi government have been directly implicated in terrorist attacks against U.S. interests around the world over the last 30 years.

Mohammed bin al Issa’s Muslim World League is at the center of much of this activity.

At the international level, The MWL’s Secretary General Mohammad Al Issa works closely with the World Economic Forum, the World Health Organization, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, the World Council of Churches, the World Food Programme, the International Federation of Red Cross, and Red Crescent Societies, and others.

This is the “key advisor” to All Arab News – which purports to be a “Christian” media outlet.

Another key advisor for All Arab News is His Excellency Dr. Ali Al Nuaimi, the first Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Elders.

Some of the most well-known Islamic scholars and supporters of the global jihad sit on the Muslim Council of Elders, including:

  1. Chairman, “His Eminence” Grand Imam Shaikh of al-Azhar, Dr. Ahmed al-Tayyib. Al Azhar is the oldest and most prestigious university of Sunni Islamic jurisprudence on the planet. Al Azhar teaches that “warfare against non-muslims” is obligatory for all Muslims until “Allah’s divine law”/sharia is imposed on every human on earth. Specifically, “Now if the deeds of the jihad – including fighting the infidels and breaking their spine through all possible means – are permissible according to Sharia, then it is impossible to define those acts as terrorism.”
  2. Dr. Abdullah Nassif (also Naseef). Nassif is one of the founders and senior leaders of the Rabita Trust and the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief (IICDR), both of which fund Al Qaeda, Hamas, and other terrorist organizations. The Rabita Trust is a part of the Muslim World League and has been identified by the U.S. and other governments as supporting terrorism.
  3. Dr. Abdallah bin Bayyah. Bayyah serves in senior leadership positions in the International Muslim Brotherhood’s International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), Global Center for Renewal and Guidance (GCRG), and several other leading Muslim Brotherhood organizations overseeing operations in Europe.

The alignment of bad actors in positions of national leadership and influence in the U.S. evangelical community is preparing their next action steps coordinated with the communist Movement, including controlled opposition (read “republican leadership”), in accordance with the Muslim World League (MWL) and the General Secretary’s Global Interfaith Operations.

The MWL Secretary General – Mohammad al Issa – has penetrated conservative Christian leadership circles and solidified their support. Meanwhile, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leaders – specifically the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) – continue to create “partnerships” in the Christian community – Catholic, protestant, and evangelical/non-denominational alike – in order to subvert and hinder their efforts, and advance already established information operations.

If you are still unsure about how badly penetrated the evangelical community is in the United States, look at the biographies of the Board of Directors for All Arab News here.

That should convince you.

Biden Proclaims ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’ Right after transgender shooter’s murder spree at a Christian school.


Transgender Day Of Visibility: Biden's Words Historic - The Rainbow ...

A disturbing look behind the curtain.

Three children and three adults were brutally murdered by a transgender shooter, Audrey Hale, at the Christian Covenant School in Nashville on March 27th. The attack was planned “over a period of months,” according to the Nashville police. 

On March 30th – three days after the massacre — President Joe Biden proclaimed March 31st as “Transgender Day of Visibility.” Instead of honoring the memory of the victims murdered in cold blood at the school, Biden decided that it was more important to honor the “joy, strength, and absolute courage” of “millions of transgender and nonbinary Americans.”   

The president’s press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, said on March 30th that “our hearts go out to…the trans community as they are under attack right now.” No, Ms. Jean-Pierre, our hearts go out to the six victims at the Christian school slain by a transgender killer just three days earlier, and to the victims’ survivors.

First Lady Jill Biden did go to Nashville to attend a vigil for the victims of the massacre. But President Biden, who is supposed to be the nation’s mourner-in-chief in times of tragedies like this, did not join her. In fact, the president did not spend a moment publicly lamenting the abominable, targeted attack on innocent children and adults at the Christian school by the fiendish killer just a week before the start of Holy Week. Instead, President Biden exploited the tragedy to push his gun control agenda. He also lashed out at those he accused of being “MAGA extremists [who] are advancing hundreds of hateful and extreme state laws that target transgender kids and their families,” laws which he claimed were “un-American.”

On the same day that two of the victims — 9-year-old Hallie Scruggs and 61-year-old substitute teacher Cindy Peak – had their funerals, the Biden administration added insult to injury by kicking off its “White House Roundtable Affirming Transgender Kids.” President Biden chose the day that one of the three Christian kids slaughtered by a mentally deranged transgender was buried to affirm transgender kids.

If President Biden is so concerned about extremists, he should condemn the Stalinist trans militants who threaten biological women with physical harm for speaking their minds about fair competition in women’s sports. The latest example was the assault on April 6th by trans militants against Riley Gaines, a former NCAA swimmer who had just delivered a speech at San Francisco State University (SFSU) on the theme of protecting women’s sports. She ended up, after the speech, barricaded in a safe room for three hours for her own protection until the police were able to escort her safely out of the building.

“The pendulum has swung too far,” said Ms. Gaines. “Women should not be put in danger because we feel uncomfortable sharing a changing space with someone of the opposite sex. We shouldn’t be put in danger because we want our sports to be safe and fair. We have the right to express this without being mobbed. I’m sure the Biden administration will release a statement expressing how this further endangers the LGBTQ community and continue to preach ‘inclusion’ no matter how females are hurt or excluded in the process.”

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had already encouraged aggressive behavior by transgender activists on the very same day as the attack against Ms. Gaines occurred. “LGBTQI+ kids,” she said, “fight back. They’re not going anywhere. And we have their back. This administration has their back.”

Meanwhile, Vice President Kamala Harris, who has stayed away from the southern border areas most impacted by the Biden administration’s disastrous immigration policies, rushed down to Nashville on April 7th. She was not in Nashville to give comfort to the families, friends, and colleagues who are in mourning for the six victims mowed down by the transgender shooter. No, the vice president flew to Nashville to rally around three Democrat Tennessee legislators who had brought the legislative proceedings on the floor of the Tennessee House of Representatives to a halt. The agitators who threw a temper tantrum on the House floor were protesting that they did not get their way in passing their proposed gun control measures.

Two of the rabble-rousers, Reps. Justin Jones and Justin Pearson used a bullhorn on the floor of the chamber to incite disorder from their supporters in the gallery. They were expelled by a two-thirds vote of the Tennessee House of Representatives. The third, Rep. Gloria Johnson, escaped the same punishment by one vote.

The two black Democrats who were expelled are portraying themselves, with the help of the left-leaning mainstream media, as the victims of racism. The third legislator who was not expelled, Rep. Johnson, claimed falsely in interviews that she was spared only because she was white.

However, Rep. Johnson has a major credibility problem in playing the race card to explain why her two colleagues were expelled while she was not. Before the Tennessee legislative chamber voted on whether to oust Rep. Johnson, two attorneys spoke on her behalf. They distinguished Rep. Johnson’s behavior from that of Reps. Justin Jones and Justin Pearson in arguing why she should be spared expulsion.

As reported by The Tennessean, the attorneys, who were former House members, argued that “while Johnson stood in support of her two freshman colleagues, she did not lead the chants with a bullhorn.” That argument was enough to sway the one Republican vote that was necessary to prevent Rep. Johnson from being expelled by the required two-thirds vote.

Republican Rep. Lowell Russell explained that he voted against expelling Rep. Johnson because she “did not participate to the extent that Jones and Pearson did. Either Jones or Pearson smuggled a bullhorn into the chamber. The two used that bullhorn to shout and scream and incite the crowd to chant ‘no action, no peace.’ The video showed Johnson did not appear to do anything other than stand near the Well and move her lips.”

Whether one agrees with the outcome of the three expulsion votes or not, racism was not the cause. Moreover, Justin Jones has already returned to the House after he was appointed to take his seat again by the Nashville Metro Council on April 10th. He did not miss even one-floor session in the House. Justin Pearson’s reinstatement was approved by the Shelby County Board of Commissioners in Memphis on April 12th. There will be special elections later this year that both will most likely win if they run.

Rather than urge patience to allow the institutional process for reinstatement to take its course, Vice President Harris used her hastily arranged visit to Nashville to further inflame tensions in Nashville. She extolled the incitement of disruptive behavior that resulted in the obstruction of an official legislative proceeding.

Vice President Harris exclaimed, “It wasn’t about the three of these leaders. It was about who they were representing. It’s about whose voices they were channeling! Understand that!” Gesturing and raising her voice to emphasize her points, the vice president added, “A democracy says you don’t silence the people! You do not stifle the people! You don’t turn off their microphones when they’re speaking about the importance of life and liberty!” 

The vice president provided yet another example of the Left’s selective outrage with her self-righteous indignation, shared by many Democrats and left-leaning media outlets, at the expulsion of Reps. Jones and Pearson. Democrats had no problem, however, supporting calls for the expulsion of Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives for entirely bogus reasons. The pretexts offered for expelling Republican House members included false claims that they assisted the January 6th Capitol rioters and that those who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s presidential election results deserved to be expelled for doing so.

It is all about democracy for me, not for thee. Or, as George Washington University Law School Professor Jonathan Turley put it, “It all comes down to ‘whose voices are being channeled’ as opposed to what the law or democracy may dictate.”

Kamala Harris and her Democrat comrades, including her boss Joe Biden, seem to forget that they have consistently tried to stifle protesters who disagree with the progressive Left’s agenda. For example, parents who dared to air their grievances loudly at public school board meetings over the critical race theory and transgender ideology indoctrination force-fed to their children in the classroom were labeled “domestic terrorists.”

The vice president’s husband, Doug Emhoff, tried to connect the hate that led to the Holocaust’s genocide and crimes against humanity with the protests at school board meetings. “Hate is interconnected,” Second Gentleman Emhoff said. “You see it in the discourse in the country right now. You see it in the divide that we have. Just going to school meetings, you see that hate that is out there.” 

Parents who, out of love for their children, spoke out to protect them from being brainwashed in school with dangerous ideologies are hatemongers in the eyes of the Second Gentleman and, no doubt, in the eyes of many members of the Biden administration. Rabble-rousing legislators who willfully obstructed the official legislative process of the chamber to which they swore their support for the U.S. and Tennessee Constitutions are considered champions of liberty in the eyes of the Biden administration. Transgenders were being honored by the Biden administration with a special day and workshop while the victims of a transgender shooter at a Christian school were still being buried.

On President Biden’s watch, the progressive Left has brought America to the point of what Victor Davis Hanson called “self-inflicted madness.”
