SENATOR SPEAKS ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM – Sen. Roy Blunt, (R-MO), who heads the Values Action Team in the Senate, argued that the debate over forcing church organizations to furnish contraceptives is “not about cost” but rather about faith-based institutions’ right to moral objection. “This is not a financial consideration – if you’re opposed to something because it costs money, that’s different from being opposed to it because you have a moral objection to it or a faith-based objection to it.” Read more

BLASPHEMY NIGHT AT CHURCH – St. George’s Anglican Church in St. Catherine’s, Ontario, a church apparently operated by a band of giggling pagan priestesses, staged The Vagina Monologues this week at the altar.

INTERPOL ENFORCING SHARIA LAW - this is a staggering and scary story. Apparently the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) caused the arrest of Saudi newspaper columnist Hamza Kashgari in Malaysia. His reported crime, committing blasphemy in Saudi Arabia. He was deported back to the Saudi kingdom to almost certain death. A Malaysian police spokesman verified that: “This arrest was part of an Interpol operation which the Malaysian police were a part of. He will be put to death for the following tweet: “I have loved things about you and I have hated things about you. There is a lot I don’t understand about you – I will not pray for you.” President Obama has granted Interpol permission to operate in the United States with immunity, although they do not have arrest authority as yet.
ISLAMIST COUP IN MALDIVES – Male, Maldives is a destination for wealthy tourists. Resorts line the shores of the Island. However, last week hard-line Islamists helped in overthrowing the democratically elected government. In a coup this week President Mohamed Nasheed was ousted as his political adversaries claimed he was trying to undermine their faith.
