A Pakistani Christian man, a father of five, was reportedly threatened and psychologically tortured by Muslim coworkers who wanted him to convert to Islam, and even though he considered suicide, he refused to convert.
"They very often called me 'kafir', which means unfaithful, and they threatened me that they would resort to false accusations of blasphemy if I refused to convert to Islam," said Patras Hanif, the Pakistani man who was the victim of abuse, according to Fides News Agency.
Hanif, who worked at a construction site in Multan, in Punjab, faced violence and harassment from fellow workers who wanted him to abandon his Christian faith, which at one point even drove him to consider suicide. more >>
The Center for Medical Progress has released a video that purports to show overlooked evidence that reveals how a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic used accounting gimmicks to disguise its illegal profiting from the sell of aborted baby parts to researchers.
The Tuesday release of CMP's latest video comes two days before CMP's indicted founder, David Daleiden, will present himself in Harris County court to address felony and misdemeanor charges that came as a result of a grand jury investigation into a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic's fetal tissue reimbursement practices.
Although CMP and pro-life supporters believe that CMP's fifth video released last year shows a Houston Planned Parenthood official explaining how the clinic skirts around state and federal fetal tissue reimbursement laws, it was Daleiden and his associate, Sandra Merritt, who were indicted with felony charges last month for tampering with governmental records, while officials from Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast were cleared of criminal wrongdoing. more >>
Pastor Creflo Dollar may have a portion of an Atlanta highway named after him, but some south Fulton County, Georgia, residents and business owners believe that neither the megachurch pastor nor the highway in question deserve the honor. They want lawmakers to take their proposal and hit the road.
"Oh Lord have mercy, good God almighty, Lord no," said one area resident to Atlanta's WSB-TV 2. "He's [Dollar] not meeting the whole community's needs in order for this right here to be named after him."
State Sen. Donzella James, D-Atlanta, is the lawmaker pushing for the proposal, Senate Resolution 805, which calls for a portion of Old National Highway to be named after the televangelist. James, who is a member of Dollar's megachurch World Changers Church International, feels the pastor and his ministry are worthy of the honor. more >>
