Christian author and preacher Max Lucado has come to the defense of an NFL player recently punished for praying after making an interception.
In a column published Wednesday, Lucado wrote that when Kansas City Chiefs player Husain Abdullah was given a personal foul for praying on the field it "was hard to watch."
I opened a recent TIME Magazine and saw in big bold words a quote from British Prime Minister David Cameron on ISIS: "They are not Muslims. They are murderers." With all due respect to the Prime Minister---they are Muslims, and they are murderers.
Our president said something similar after the beheading of American James Foley in August. "ISIL speaks for no religion. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday, or what they do every day. No faith teaches people to murder innocents.".
It's news to ISIL that they have nothing to do with Islam. Whatever you call them, ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) or ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) or IS (Islamic State) certainly has to do with Islam. They are informed by Islam which says to slay the infidel wherever you may find them (Surah 9:29) and to kill the Muslim who leaves his religion. more >>
Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau appeared in a new video Thursday where he dismissed claims that he had been killed, and announced that he is implementing strict Sharia law on towns in Nigeria that have been captured by the terror group.
"Here I am, alive. I will only die the day Allah takes my breath," Shekau says in the video that was obtained by AFP. He adds that he is "running our ... Islamic caliphate" and administering strict Sharia punishments.
The video puts an end to hopes that Shekau might have been killed by anti-terror efforts, as the Nigerian army had earlier suggested. more >>

The Red Umbrella, an organization focused on empowering at-risk women, is now seeking to aid female refugees fleeing the Assad regime in Syria.
Based in Dallas, Texas, The Red Umbrella strives to help female refugees in the Middle East and raise awareness about their living conditions to the rest of the world, Lissette Handal, founder and CEO of TRU told The Christian Post.
"The perception people have of the Middle East here [in the U.S.] is of terrorists and the Islamic extremists. I think [Americans] forget that [these people] are also human beings just like you and me," Handal said. The political perception of what is the Middle East overshadows the human aspect." more >>
An Iraqi state television station is now airing a nationally televised parody series that directly mocks Islamic State militants and acts as an anti-ISIS propaganda tool, hoping to prevent more people from joining the jihadist movement.
The first episode of the 30-part comedy series "State of Myths" aired last weekend on the Iraqi owned al-Iraqiya television station. Set in a fictional Iraqi town that has been seized by ISIS, the show makes fun of the militants and their followers and symbolizes the Islamic State as if it had spawned from the devil.
The show's chief supervisor, Thayer Jiyad, said that the show's aim is to alleviate the widespread fear surrounding the group. more >>
