U.S. Senator Tells the Truth!

Senator Durbin is Against Religious Freedom
It sure seems that way. Illinois Senator Dick Durbin has been holding out on the re-authorization of H.R. 2867. If re- authorized it would once again fund the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), a commision which has been instrumental in monitoring religous freedom all over the world. According to published reports Senator Durbin has been holding out because he rather build a Federal prison in his home state that will house terrorists.
If the USCIRF ceases to exist all Christians in the world will be wiped out by their enemies. And if Durbin does not support religious freedom the next step will be to eliminate religious freedom in the United States. I have said it once and I will say it again--everyone should have the freedom to believe in any faith of their choosing. The playing field should be equally leveled and let God choose His people. No one should be discriminated or oppressed for what they believe in…

The Evil of Blasphemy Laws

Image
The Evil of Blasphemy Laws Public Domain, "Ecce Homo", Antonio Cisneri, 1871 Yesterday, it dawned upon me that blasphemy laws are quite evil. Historically speaking many people have been put to death for the charge of blasphemy. Currently, Asia Bibi is in jail for blasphemy. Hundreds of Christians are being slaughtered in countries in Africa and the Middle East because someone charged them as blaspheming the name of God. Actually these grotesque actions show that people are terribly insecure with their own faith. People are incense with hate when simple words offends them. And it is a complete contradiction. I believe that God is all powerful he does not need anyone to defend Him. The idea that one must be killed because she/he had the free will to speak his/or her mind is abhorrently evil. And then again, it dawned upon me that Jesus Christ himself was killed for the same charge!! Wow... I thought. The implications are earth shattering! Our Lord and Savior was killed…

Arab Spring Unites the Persecuted Church

Image
Praise be to God, our Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Today, the day right after 11/11/11 the Moody Church in Chicago hosted the Persecuted Christians: Affliction or Privilege? The Impact of Islam in the East and West Conference. Being the first of its kind in a major U.S. city, and the first of its kind to be held in a world renown church, the conference's aim was to bring to light how Islam has impacted east/west relationships. There were over 13 speakers who spoke about their experiences as Christians living in the Middle East to a crowd of over 250 people. It was noted that in the 20th century alone, over 45 million Christians have been collectively killed by world governments such as the Soviet Union, Nazism, and the Communist Khmer Rogue. In Sudan over 2 million people were killed, most being of Christian descent. The tragedy of the ordeal is that many Christians in the West have been slow to recognize the persecution of Christians. But conference speakers posed t…
