Islamic State terrorists slaughtering "infidels." Islamic State Terrorists Evict Monks From 4th Century Monastery

Muslim terrorists who are members of the Islamic State in Iraq, have just desecrated a Syriac Catholic monastery that dates back to the 4th century.

Indian Christians are now facing persecution by Hindus. Indian Villages Outlaw Christian Practices

Several villages in central India have outlawed the open practice of Christianity – a move of questionable legality yet one that worries church leaders who say it already has encouraged anti-Christian violence.

“The situation is becoming worse. The anti-Christian propaganda is becoming stronger,” Arun Pannalal, president of Chhattisgarh Christian Forum, told World Watch Monitor on July 15. Chhattisgarh is one of India’s 29 states, in the heart of the country.

A large Protestant church in the city known as “China’s Jerusalem” was demolished on April 28th on the orders of local leaders. Sanjiang church, in the eastern city of Wenzhou, took six years and 30m yuan ($4.8m) to put up, but officials said it had violated building codes. Local Christians gathered at the church but were unable to stop the demolition. Unregistered “house churches” have long been the target of government crackdowns, but Sanjiang was part of the officially approved church. Chairman’s Report July 17th 2014

In this issue:  William J. Murray speaks this week at two events in Washington, DC, each concerning religious freedom.  The first rally was sponsored by the Falun Gong, whose members are sometimes imprisoned in China for their faith; some have even been executed and their organs harvested for transplants to  wealthy Westerners.  Murray called on the Chinese government to stop persecuting the peaceful Falun Gong, and stop tearing down the churches of peaceful Christians, and to focus instead on the Islamic terrorists who are their real enemies.  Murray also spoke on Capitol Hill at a conference sponsored by the Center for Democracy and Human Rights in Saudi Arabia, where he explained how Saudi influence is behind many of the seemingly incomprehensible foreign policy decisions of our government.

Newsweek Obama Gay Obama To Sign Executive Order To Benefit Homosexuals & Transsexuals

Obama is accomplishing through executive action what he cannot accomplish through the legislative process. The so-called Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), has been stalled in Congress by conservatives who see it as a way for homosexuals to crush religious freedom and to benefit the homosexual juggernaut. If Obama can’t get something through Congress, he’ll just use his pen and cell phone to circumvent the Constitution.

No wonder Obama is considered by Newsweek to be America’s first “gay” president.

Obama currently ignores both Congress and the Judicial branch of our government.
