"How do You live with it, Lord?"
That's a question I recently asked God in prayer as I thought about all the suffering taking place around the world today, especially as human beings slaughter one another in the most horrific and barbaric ways, including reports of Muslim radicals beheading Christian children.
"Lord, how do You live with so much suffering and pain when you see it and know it all?" more >>
Protests highlighting the plight of Iraqi Christians are being held in many parts of the world, thanks at least partly to the #WeAreN campaign that has drawn attention to the unprecedented persecution by highlighting Arabic letter "N," which the ISIS militants placed on the homes of Christians in Mosul.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted, "#WeAreN and we stand in solidarity with the persecuted Iraqi Christians," adding a link to an article in National Review on the campaign's success, and urging his followers, "RT if you do too!"
The article notes that the #WeAreN campaign has helped fuel protests across the United States and all over the world in favor of Christians forced to flee their homes in Mosul and other parts of Iraq, which is now under the control of the Sunni militants of the ISIS. more >>
It seems I have some liberal knickers in a knot north of the border.
The left is anything if not predictable. It tickles me to no end when, by way of their utterly unhinged reaction to one of my columns, secular-"progressives" end up proving true the very point I was trying to make.
Last month I wrote an opinion piece headlined, The Coming Christian Revolt. It was featured in multiple publications, including the print edition of The Newfoundland Herald, a weekly news and entertainment magazine circulated throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. more >>
A prolific atheist blogger has decided to cancel a Kickstarter campaign for an illustrated book that called God an "abusive boyfriend."
Hemant Mehta, known as the Patheos blogger the "Friendly Atheist," announced last week that he was canceling an online funding campaign for his book "God is an Abusive Boyfriend."
In the cancellation announcement, Mehta noted that he "decided to put a stop to the project" due to "receiving a lot of negative feedback over the past 24 hours." more >>
As ISIS continues to terrorize Iraq, a new threat has been issued against the United States as the spokesman for the group gave an interview last week saying they will fight and "raise the flag of Allah in the White House."
"I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established," Abu Mosa, spokesman for ISIS, told VICE Media in an interview. "Don't be cowards and attack with drones. Instead, send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House."
ISIS controls the Syrian city of Raqqa, which it claims is now the capital of the Islamic caliphate. However, the group has recently been heavily involved in taking over territory in Iraq, attempting to drive out Christians and other minority religious groups in the hope of establishing the Islamic caliphate in that country as well. Over 200,000 Christians have had to flee from their homes in order to seek refuge in Kurdish villages. more >>
ISIS forces have overtaken the largest Christian city in Iraq, forcing thousands of Christians and other religious minorities to flee and seek refuge in the northern Kurdish region.
ISIS militants issued a stern mandate to Christians living in the Mosul: "Convert to Islam, pay a fine, or face death by the sword."
The jihadists took over the cities of Qaraqosh, Mosul, Bartella, and Tall Kayf, as well as Hamadaniya. more >>
