Matt Barber: 27 church members slain were Martyrs for Christ


Jesus said:

 

12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask[a]anything in My name, I will do it. (John 14: 12-14 NKJV)

Have you heard of or perhaps remember Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD? Dr. Klingenschmitt served as a Navy Chaplain. In 2006 Dr. Klingenschmitt prayed “in Jesus’ Name” as the Lord Jesus told His disciples to do.

 

Klingenschmitt, as WND has reported, has fought an extended battle with the Navy over its restrictions on religious expression by its chaplains. He appeared and delivered a public prayer “in Jesus’ name” at a White House rally last winter and was court-martialed for that. The Navy convicted him of failing to follow a lawful order because his superior didn’t want him praying “in Jesus’ name.” (NAVY DISMISSES CHAPLAIN WHO PRAYED ‘IN JESUS’ NAME’; By BOB UNRUH; WND; 01/12/2007 1:00 AM)

 

Dr. Klingenschmitt chose to obey the Lord over an absurd Navy order and got his walking papers for doing so. The silver lining was Congress passed legislation to pray in the Name of Jesus in 2007 (Ibid.). The bad news was the Navy never reinstated his commission as a Chaplain.

 

Anyone that stands with the principles of over any civil employer, government employer and/or military employer; is awesome.

 

In saying all that, I received Dr. Klingenschmitt’s newsletter today. The subject matter is about the Sutherland Springs Massacre, the victims’ faith and an interview with Matt Barber over the atrocity.

A heads up: the good chaplain fund raises by suggesting you join a mass fax of which money is required to send.

I just had the privilege of interviewing Christian attorney Matt Barber about the horrific shooting and death of 27 Christians in Texas, killed because of their Christian faith.

Matt Barber explained on our TV show several things:

 

1)  The victims were martyrs for Jesus Christ, including the 14-year old pastor’s daughter.
2)  The atheist shooter Devon Kelley hated Christians and repeatedly said so.
3)  The neighbor hero Stephen Willeford was a first-responder who shot the bad guy.
4)  The left blames the NRA but Kelley was not NRA and Willeford was.
5)  The left shoots Christians and then demands Christians disarm without self-defense.

Sadly, this is a time of great mourning.

As the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 3, there is a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance… a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

 

We choose to love and forgive our enemies, and yet as we mourn, we also arm ourselves in self-defense to prepare for the left’s coming war against God and the Church.

If only the shooter Kelley had heard the gospel of Jesus’ love from a chaplain before his bad-conduct discharge.  Let’s petition Congress for chaplains rights to pray “in Jesus’ name”:

Atheist shooter hated Christians, killed 27 in Texas Church

Interviews with those who knew the Texas church shooter now reveal his beliefs.

“According to former classmates of Devin Patrick Kelley, the 26-year-old man who killed 26 people and injured over 20 others in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday was an avowed atheist who mocked those who believed in God,” reports DailyWire.

“DailyMail.com spoke with former classmates who attended New Braunfels High School with Kelley. They all told a similar story: Kelley — who had a history of violence and was given a ‘bad conduct’ discharge from the Air Force — ‘preached atheism,’ acted ‘creepy’ and ‘weird,’ and seemed to hold a ‘very negative’ worldview.

“He had a kid or two, fairly normal, but kinda quiet and lately seemed depressed,” Kelley’s former high school classmate Patrick Boyce told DailyMail.com. “He was the first atheist I met. He went Air Force after high school, got discharged but I don’t know why. I was just shocked [to hear the news].”

 

Devin Patrick Kelley

“Another former classmate, Nina Rose Nava, told the outlet that Kelley ‘was different in school and creeped me out,’ but she added that she ‘never’ would have thought he would do ‘such a horrific thing.’…It’s not something I expected from him. He was an outcast but not a loner. He was popular among other outcast[s].”

“Though Nava said the two hadn’t spoken in person since high school, until recently they had been friends on Facebook. In a post, she said she had ‘just deleted him’ from her Facebook account because she ‘couldn’t stand’ his insulting posts.

“[I]n complete shock! I legit just deleted him off my [Facebook] cause I couldn’t stand his post,” wrote Nava. “He was always talking about how people who believe in God [were] stupid and trying to preach his atheism.”
On Sunday, Kelley — armed with a Ruger rifle and several rounds of ammunition and wearing black tactical gear and a ballistic vest — opened fired during the 11 a.m. service at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, killing 26 and injuring 24, making it the deadliest mass shooting in the history of Texas. His shooting spree came to an end when a heroic armed man got into a shootout with Kelley and forced him into a high speed chase. Kelley died of what authorities believe to be a self-inflicted gun wound.

[Dr. Chaps’ comment:  If only a chaplain had reached this confused man in the Air Force with the power of Jesus’ name.  Atheists like Kelley believe there is no God, no consequence for sin, and no ultimate justice for the victims of this horrific murderer.  They will discover they’re wrong, and there is a God, and His justice will prevail.]

There is a Reason for Evil – Prayer Still Defeats Evil


John R. Houk

© November 8, 2017

You’d think even a godless person that knows right from wrong (to the best extant that is even possible) would concur the massacre in a Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs Texas was a horrific incident that should instill national unity rather than divisive comments from Leftists in Hollywood and the MSM, RIGHT?

 

AND I am not even speaking about the idiocy of gun control! After all, it was a former NRA gun instructor (Stephen Willeford) – with a gun – that prevented Devin Kelley from more than 26 or 27 (depending who you read) already butchered with bullets – men, women and children.

 

I am talking about the godless who went public with their thoughts that “prayer” did little for the Christian in Church who were wounded or dead. Instead Leftists demanded gun control would be more effective than prayer to Almighty God. Keep in mind Kelley’s acquisitions of guns happened even though gun laws should have prevented such and gun owner Stephan Willeford more than likely stopped a greater death toll with his gun.

 

A call for more gun control merely enables crooks gain illegal gun acquisitions while keeping guns out of the hands of responsible people.

 

Dems negating prayer by increasing ineffective gun control:

 

Seth Moulton – Dem Rep from Massachusetts:

 

“We are praying – but prayers won’t fix this or prevent it from happening again. … Let’s also pray that you find the courage to do your job.”

 

Richard Blumenthal – Dem Senator from Connecticut:

 

“Horror, heartbreak, shame. Prayers are important but insufficient. After another unspeakable tragedy, Congress must act – or be complicit.”

 

John Lewis – Dem Rep from Georgia:

 

“We must do more than mourn and pray for those murdered in Texas. We must act.”

 

Pramila Jayapal – Dem Rep from Washington State:

 

“They were praying when it happened. They don’t need our prayers. They need us to address gun violence crisis & pass sensible regulation.”

 

(Dem Left quotes from– ‘Thoughts and Prayers Are Not Enough.’ Gun Control Advocates Demand Action After Texas Shooting; By Katie Reilly; Time.com; 11/6/17)

 

Leftist Hollywood

 

Mia Farrow:

 

“prayers and thoughts don’t seem to be working. We NEED reasonable gun laws. Do your job” (quote from — Thoughts and Prayers Are Not Enough.’ Gun Control Advocates Demand Action After Texas Shooting; By Katie Reilly; Time.com; 11/6/17)

 

Wil Wheaton:

 

“Will Wheaton responded to the deadly shooting at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs on Sunday by tweeting: ‘The murdered victims were in a church. If prayers did anything, they’d still be alive, you worthless sack of s***.’ [The “you” refers to Speaker Ryan] (Wil Wheaton Fire Tweet Lashing Paul Ryan; By CHRIS SPARGO; Daily Mail; 11/6/17 09:13 EST – Updated 14:41 EST)

 

Leftist MSM

 

Joy Reid:

 

“Enough with the “thoughts and prayers already.” The Bible teaches us that faith without works is dead. Do something or say nothing.” (quote from–  ‘Thoughts and Prayers Are Not Enough.’ Gun Control Advocates Demand Action After Texas Shooting; By Katie Reilly; Time.com; 11/6/17)

 

Don Lemon:

 

CNN Tonight host Don Lemon went on a nearly-four-minute-long commentary on Monday emphasizing that he’s not “not anti-thoughts and prayers,” but demanded Congress defeat the NRA and pass gun control measures that wouldn’t have stopped Sunday’s Sutherland Springs church shooting.

Lemon read a few tweets from Republicans following the massacre and then mocked them by repeatedly muttering “thoughts and prayers” under this breath. …

From there, Lemon seemed to discount the notion that prayers aren’t always answered in how one expects and that there’s evil in the world when he bemoaned how “thoughts and prayers” didn’t stop the shooter.

“Thoughts and prayers did not stop an oversight from the justice system which enabled a guy who attacked his stepson and assaulted his wife from getting a gun. Thoughts and prayers didn’t stop a troubled person from buying assault-grade weapons that took the lives of 26 people in an instant,” he added.

Lemon could have stopped there …

Of course, that’s not what Lemon did. He continued by claiming that “[t]his is not at all about the Second Amendment or taking guns out of the hands of responsible gun owners.”

 

“I am a firm believer in the Second Amendment. I’ll say that again. I am firm believer in the Second Amendment. 

If you’ve ever read someone going this far to make clear that you’re not for gun control, here’s a spoiler alert of sorts: This means they’re for gun control.

And sure enough, Lemon went on to float the very notion that he just claimed he’s not advocating for:

But think about this. How many guns and of what caliber does one person need? Does a civilian really need an arsenal? Does a civilian really need body armor? Those are good questions that we should all be asking. Maybe you think they should, but we should at least be asking those questions. Those are the questions our leaders should be debating. Our leaders should be leading, not following. 

… (Lemon Argues Prayer Didn’t Stop Sutherland Springs, Hints Irrelevant Gun Control Would Have; By Curtis Houck; NewsBusters.org; 11/7/17 5:58 PM EST)

Friends this is only a sample of people discrediting prayer and wanting to end the 2nd Amendment Right to protect oneself with gun control that enables greater power to thugs and less power to YOU.

 

People still devoted to the faith of the Word of God – Biblical Faith – comprehend why evil functions in this world. The reason begins with the God’s record of the creation of humanity. The very creation mocked by the irreligious Left as a myth.

 

Genesis presents Creation as a six-day process in which He rested on the seventh (our Saturday). If you are dedicated to Biblical faith you will be part of the theological argument, that God’s Creation was six 24-hour periods. Much to the displeasure of my son, I’m not into the six 24-hour period creation. There are some who discovered verses relating to one-day for God is as 1000-years to we created humans (Psalm 90: 1-4; 2 Peter 3: 8 NKJV).

 

The 1000 years for me explained that God made a natural order. I still believe the Almighty could have blinked and Shazzam, Creation came to be. On a personal, it is my guess the Shazzam method was not God’s modus operandi in Creation. This is why I interpret the 1000-years=1-day to God probably relates to a concept of a long time rather than a specific measurable time. If that messes with your theology, please forgive me. I am not dogmatic about the theory.

 

Getting to Creation and humanity. God made man (as in humanity) male and eventually female. Man was made in the image of God which clue you into a general appearance of the Almighty but not a specific rendering. The Creation man was on the sixth creation epoch:

 

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[a] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

 

31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day. (Genesis 1: 26-27, 31 NKJV)

 

It is important to note and dwell on verse 31: “… God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.”

 

God’s Creation “was” very good. Meaning no sickness, no death, natural disasters, no inherent wickedness on the Earth and so on that would be the opposite of very good. (In Genesis Chapter 2 God reveals the process of male created first then the female. Secular minded scholars will tell you this is another document that was merged in antiquity into our current Bible. I don’t buy scholarly theories that discredit God’s Word.)

 

What in the world happened between “very good” and evil’s existence in our present age? The explanation is in Genesis Chapter 3. You really should read the whole chapter, but for brevity’s sake, here are the highlights:

 

And the woman said to the serpent [serpent=Satan=The Devil], “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’”

 

[THE DECEPTION]

 

Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

 

[Rebelling against God’s Command and becoming a servant of Satan by believing lies]

 

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. [Adam were clothed glory, the glory-clothing disappeared in rebellion and were actually naked]

 

[Not taking responsibility for own actions is the 2nd evidence evil had entered God’s Creation]

 

11 And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?”

12 Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.”

13 And the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”

The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

 

[Serpent was cursed by being synonymous with Satan and Satan cursed with the foretelling a son born from a woman will someday …]

 

14 So the Lord God said to the serpent:

 

“Because you have done this,
You are cursed more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And you shall eat dust
All the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel
.”

 

[Female descendants of Eve are cursed]

 

16 To the woman He said:

 

“I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception;
In pain you shall bring forth children;
Your desire shall be for your husband,
And he shall rule over you.”

 

[Male descendants of Adam are cursed]

 

17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:

 

“Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat of it
All the days of your life.
18 Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
And you shall eat the herb of the field.
19 In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground,
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you are,
And to dust you shall return.” (Genesis 3: 2-7, 11-19 NKJV)

 

In Sunday school you may have learned Adam’s (and descendants) curse was to toil for his family unit to live. In other words, no work means no eat. Probably what you didn’t learn in Sunday school was “Cursed is the ground for your sake”. The “ground” is all that exists on Earth from evil acts of beasts and humanity to horrific natural disasters.

 

In essence Adam and Eve unwittingly yet willingly separated themselves from God. Thus, Adam and Eve “surely” died by eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Without Jesus, humans are dead people walking. No Redemption from this separation means the Second Death, which is Eternal Separation from God.

 

As soon as Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, the authority given to them of the Earth was transferred to Satan making the Devil the god of this world until Jesus returns the second and last time through the Devil in chains in the Lake of Fire with those unrepentant choosing to ally with Satan over obedience to the Creator.

 

There is a Devil. Jesus Christ the Son of God defeated the Devil with Resurrection power available to all who Believe. Is the Devil still here? Yes. The Devil’s last and final defeat occurs after humanity’s last test of who is with God and who is not. Read the back of the book – The Revelation of Jesus to John the Apostle.

 

Until Jesus returns to Redeem the entire planet from the curse of Adam, we have the power of prayer via Redemption activated on Earth by the Holy Spirit. The actions of Believers are only as effective as we are aligned to the power of God through the Holy Spirit. Sometimes protection comes by Holy Spirit led people who thwart the designs of the Devil. In Sutherland Springs Texas, that person was Stephan Willeford armed with a gun and Johnnie Langendorff the side-kick car driver.

 

The inspiration for these thoughts deserve some reading as well. Hence the below cross post.

Actual Demons Are Actually Real

 

By Erick Erickson

November 6, 2017, 05:00am

The Resurgent

 

The Bible makes clear what a lot of people seldom ever think about. Demons are real. Protestants tend to think it is all Catholic talk and secularists think it is all in the movies. But evil is a very real thing and demons are part of it. Though we may not see them commonly, they are there and the church shooting in Texas should remind us of that.

 

“Where is your God?” the secularists heckle as the American progressives and Nazis and Soviets and Romans and Persians and Philistines all have heckled Christ’s church. He sits on his throne, still sovereign, mourning the dead and welcoming them into His kingdom. On this earth, as it grows more secular, we should expect more of this as evil creeps back in. I think Augustine was right that evil exists in the absence of God.

 

Missionaries to far off places often have similar stories. The natives are stirred to faith by dreams. But as the gospel moves in there in the shadows the missionaries will sometimes encounter the demonic. It may take the form of a witch doctor or a demonic possession. They are not just in the Bible.

 

Secularists dismiss this all as superstition. But Christian missionaries are eye witnesses in many cases and Christian churches need to wake up and realize the evil creeping back in with the rising tide of secularism in America. There will be more church shootings. There will be more persecution of Christians. There will be more evil, often masked under the guise of progressive enlightenment. It all comes as American society increasingly shoves God aside.

 

We do not know all the details of the shooter in Texas. But we should recognize evil and call it evil. And churches should see what happened in Texas and what is happening to culture as a whole and start preparing their congregations for a harder life in the United States. Actual demons are actually real. They take many forms. But they are all evil and all wish to harm the church.

MSNBC Reporter Asks ‘Are Prayers Enough?’ in Wake of Church Massacre

 

By Billy Hallowell, Senior Editor

November 7, 2017

FaithWire.com

 

Paul Buford, pastor of River Oaks Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, had a pointed response on Monday when an MSNBC reporter asked him if prayers are really enough in the wake of the horrific mass shooting at First Baptist Church.

 

READ: They Lost a Child, Grandchild and Great-Grandchildren During the Texas Church Massacre — Here’s Their Powerful Response

 

“I think, absolutely they are,” Buford, whose church is just two miles down the road from First Baptist, said during an on-air segment. “It’s only our faith in God that’s going to get us through this.”

 

The preacher went on to say that “prayer works” and delivered a mini sermon about how Christians believe that those who died at First Baptist and who knew Jesus are now in heaven. But the conversation took yet another interesting turn when the reporter asked how, outside of prayer, society can stop events like this from happening.

 

“I’m not sure we’re going to be able to stop those things, because the word of God tells us that we are gonna face trials and tribulations, that evil is out there, and it’s doing everything it can to attack,” Buford said. “We talk about it’s a gun issue, or we talk about a mental health issue. Well, as pastors and as Christians, we talk about it and say it’s not that; it’s a heart issue.”

 

He then went on to say that people are focusing on the world and not God, lamenting the state of affairs.

 

“If we were focused on the [God], then we wouldn’t be having those things,” he said. “We continue to push God out of our schools, out of our communities, out of our government.”

 

At that point, the reporter interjected to question whether Buford was blaming the shooting on those things and he clarified that he was not and was, instead, speaking to a broader issue that he believes is unfolding.

 

“We’re in a spiritual battle, we believe, in this world. It’s evil against good,” he said. “Now, we know that good is gonna overcome that.”

Jennifer LeClaire Offers Prophetic Insight on Sutherland Springs Attack

 

By JENNIFER LECLAIRE

11/7/17 11:00AM EST 

CharismaNews – Watchman on the Wall

 

The church massacre that killed more than 24 people—including an 18-month-old child—still has investigators puzzled. News reports are trickling out about a connection to a domestic dispute but authorities have yet to say much about what specifically motivated the killer.

 

“This was not racially motivated; it wasn’t over religious beliefs,” Freeman Martin, a regional director with the Texas Department of Public Safety, said at a news briefing. “There was a domestic situation going on within the family and the in-laws.”

 

We must avoid knee-jerk reactions to politicize this tragedy and hit our knees in prayer for healing. While police look for a natural motive, we know the enemy’s motive all too well.

 

This massacre, like so many others, has the devil’s fingerprints all over it. Of course, it doesn’t take a prophet to see that, but I don’t mind reminding you amid the outrage and grief that 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelly, the attacker, was inspired by rulers of darkness.

 

You know I’m not a doom and gloomer, but this not the first attack on a church; it will not be the last. Amid the Sutherland Springs massacre, we must not give in to the spirit of fear, but understand our adversary, the devil, is influencing people to steal, kill and destroy.

 

We must wage prophetic warfare in the heavenlies because our battle is not against flesh and blood. Jesus said the gates of hell would not prevail against the church. And Jesus is always right. He also told us, “Occupy till I come” (Luke 19:13b, KJV).

 

It’s time for the church to rise up with all manner of prayer with prophetic insight, including petitions and decrees, binding and loosing, even as we grieve for those who have been traumatized by this calamity.

 

Here’s how we can pray:

 

  • As the Lord to comfort those who are grieving and to deliver them from trauma that could impact them for many years to come.

 

  • Ask the Lord to fully expose every hidden motive, agenda or mandate behind this attack.

 

  • Give the pastor of this church the wisdom of Solomon to walk through this tragedy in the days ahead.

 

  • Bind the spirit of fear over this church, this city and others who are glued to the secular news media waiting for the next revelation about the killer.

 

  • Decree and declare a cease-and-desist order against massacres in our nation.

 

  • Pray that those who lost friends and family can truly forgive this atrocity.

 

  • Pray for awakening and a transforming revival in our cities.

Where do You Stand: Keramer vs Johnston?


Intro by John R. Houk

© November 4, 2017

 

On 11/2 I vented a bit about the hypocrisy of the Mainstream Media (MSM) reporting like wimps on the Islamic terrorist attack by Sayfullo Saipov in Manhattan. Saipov killed eight and injured many others on Halloween for Allah, Muhammad and ISIS.

 

I shared the blog post on the G+ Community Boycott!🚫CNN, MSNBC & LIBERAL MEDIA (among other Communities and Groups). Two Community commenters had an interesting enough dialogue that I have decided to cross post most of it as a standalone post. The dialogue was between “ron keramer” and “Christina Johnston”.

 

The title of the post is “I Am Islamorgizo not Islamophobic”. The context of the post is being weary of the MSM insisting anyone that is critical of Islam is an Islamophobic racist. So, I found a Greek word that connotates a fixed anger akin to settled opposition. That Greek word is orgízō. Just as Multiculturalists and Islamic Apologists hooked “Islam” with the Greek derivative for “phobia” to form Islamophobe, I connected Islam with orgízō to create Islamorgizo – a settled angry opposition to Islam. Then I explained the reason why Islam deserves settled angry opposition not only for its revered writings justifying violence against non-Muslims, but also to show contrasting Quran and the Bible that Islam is specifically an Antichrist religion. Incidentally, Islam is the ONLY non-Christian religion that specifically denies the centrality of the Christian faith. You’ll have to read “I Am Islamorgizo not Islamophobic” for the details.

 

In keramer vs. Johnston: keramer lightly took a pro-Islam and an intense Antisemitic stand. Johnston took a critical stand against Islam and was pro-Christian in her criticism of Islam.

 

On a personal level was extremely disenchanted keramer’s Antisemitism. (There are other commenters, but I am focusing on keramer and Johnston.)

There are no misconceptions about Islam.

Because:

Islam means submission.
Islam is satanic.
Muslim means to follow Islam.
Allah is the Moon God, is Satan. Anybody saying any different is affiliated with Islam and is satanic.

Get thee behind me Satan.

Muslims / Islam justify and teach sin and abomination, unholy and ungodly acts, hatred, racism, incest pedophilia bestiality. Satan’s soldiers.

The hatred of Muslim terrorists for Christianity has manifested itself in inhumane acts against Christians such as beheadings, crucifixions, and destruction of churches.

And now, in the brutality of the Paris attacks.

I Am Islamorgizo not Islamophobic


John R. Houk

© November 2, 2017

 

Islamophobic

 

Islamophobic is a word spliced together with the English for Islam and the Greek phobia.

 

I have no idea if “Islam” is an English transliteration of Arabic or if it is the actual Arabic adopted into English. Frankly, I don’t care. I know that “Islam” is a theopolitical religion founded by a man that legitimate history paints as a robbing bandit that developed a loyalty-cult by calling himself a prophet of a monotheistic deity that gave him permissive justification for all sorts of vile acts to enlarge that cult and perpetuate after it after his demise.

 

Initially the acts began as violent robberies of Arabic tribal caravans that were not loyal to Muhammad’s (or for years known as Mohammed in English) cultic teachings. Those teachings centered around absolute submission to the deity Muhammad carved out of a polytheistic moon-god (allah) and thus that deity called for absolute submission to his prophet Muhammad. After all Mo was the only human being that called the voice of allah; ergo, when Mo spoke allah spoke.

 

“Phobe” comes from a Greek word that that English is phobia. If you have a phobia, you have an irrational fear. Here are some irrational fears you may have heard of:

 

Agoraphobia– Fear of open spaces or of being in crowded, public places like markets. Fear of leaving a safe place.

 

Bacteriophobia– Fear of bacteria.

 

Francophobia– Fear of France or French culture.

 

Hydrophobia– Fear of water or of rabies.

 

Necrophobia– Fear of death or dead things.

 

Xenophobia– Fear of strangers or foreigners. (via a fascinating romp through PhobiaList.com. I doubt it is comprehensive yet fun nonetheless)

 

Islamophobe is the word Leftists and Muslim Apologists use an epithet to describe those that sense Islam spreads hatred of non-Muslims. Thus, the epithet leads to the accusation of racism. In other words, if you fit the description of Islamophobe, then you are a racist.

 

I am not a racist and I definitely don’t have an irrational fear of Muslims or Islam.

 

So, after listening to the lame Mainstream Media (MSM or Lame Stream Media) criticize Conservatives over anger of the immigration program that brought us Sayfullo Saipov, the Islamic terrorist that killed 8 with a truck, the term Islamophobic racists became the common MSM accusation. I’ve become quite weary of the idiotic reference to critics of Islam.

 

Ergo, I decided to look for a better term that describes my aversion as something better than an irrational fear of Islam. Phobia comes from the Greek language. I looked for a Greek word that better fits my feelings toward Islam.

 

I found a Greek word in a Bible Concordance online. Biblehub.com uses the Strong’s Concordance number system. Ever since the 9/11 attack, I have been angry at all things Islam. I have boned up on Islam a lot since then. I am not an expert, but I can read well enough to know deceptive propaganda when I see it come Muslim Apologists and Leftist Multiculturalists.

 

The Greek word that best describes the anger I have Islam is orgizó. I’m not going to take the time to look it up, but I am fairly certain orgizó’s root word orgé is what the English word for a monster-like creature known as an ogre is derived.

 

Here is what Strong’s says about orgízõ:

 

Cognate: 3710 orgízō – be angry, as expressing a “fixed anger” (settled opposition). 3710 /orgízō (“to show settled-opposition”) is positive when inspired by God – and always negative when arising from the flesh. “Sinful (unnecessary) anger” focuses on punishing the offender rather than the moral content of the offenseSee 3709 (orgē).

 

My anger is “fixed” as in “settled opposition”. The Word of God warns of allowing settled opposition to evolve into acts of sin:

 

26 “Be angry, and do not sin”:[a] do not let the sun go down on your wrath, (Ephesians 4: 26 NKJV)

 

Being angry is not a problem. The problem is if one takes anger to actions that are not godly:

 

25 Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,”[a] for we are members of one another. 26 “Be angry, and do not sin”:[b] do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give place to the devil.

 

29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

 

31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. (Ephesians 4: 25-27, 29, 31 NKJV)

 

Contrast how the Word of God tells Believers how to act in anger as opposed to the way Mo – allegedly from allah – tells his followers to deal with anger particularly when anger is insulting to Mo and allah:

 

Quran

 

57. Verily, those who annoy Allah and His Messenger Allah has cursed them in this world, and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating torment.

 

58. And those who annoy believing men and women undeservedly, bear on themselves the crime of slander and plain sin.

 

 

60. If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease (evil desire for adultery, etc.), and those who spread false news among the people in Al-Madinah, cease not, We shall certainly let you overpower them, then they will not be able to stay in it as your neighbours but a little while.

 

61. Accursed, wherever found, they shall be seized and killed with a (terrible) slaughter.

 

62. That was the Way of Allah in the case of those who passed away of old, and you will not find any change in the Way of Allah. (Bold Emphasis is Editor’s – Quran 33: 57-58, 60-62 TheReligionOfPeace)

 

For Muslim and non-Muslim alike, insulting Mo and/or allah means a horrible death in this life.

 

The hypocrites = Those who allow the desires of the flesh to act. Sounds universal, but it’s not. A Muslim man can have sex to assuage his desires under these circumstances:

 

27: And those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord –

28: Indeed, the punishment of their Lord is not that from which one is safe –

29: And those who guard their private parts

30: Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they are not to be blamed –

31: But whoever seeks beyond that, then they are the transgressors – (Quran 70: 27-31 SAHIH INTERNATIONAL)

 

Can you guess the reference of “those their right hands possess”? For clarity let’s look at other translations for 70: 30 –

 

Imam Iskender Ali Mihr

Except with their spouses and those whom their right hands possess (their concubines), because they surely are not blamed.

 

Ali Quli Qarai

(apart from their spouses and their slave women, for then they are not blameworthy;

 

Amatul Rahman Omar

Except from their (free) wives or those (wives of theirs) whom their right hands own (- slave wives), for which they are not to blame.

 

Hilali & Khan

Except with their wives and the (women slaves and captives) whom their right hands possess, for (then) they are not to be blamed,

 

Mohammed Habib Shakir

Except with their wives and the (captives) whom their right hands possess,- for (then) they are not to be blamed, (Excerpts from Compare all English translations of Surah Al-Ma’arij – verse 30; en.noblequran.org)

 

“The Hypocrites” of Quran 33: 60 is ONLY telling male Muslim to NOT have carnal relations with Muslim women that are not their wives, but the non-Muslim gals that are abducted are fair game carnal relations – whether non-Muslim gal willingly participates or not. This is being called Rape Jihad in European nations that have taken-in millions of Muslim refugees. Rape Jihad has happened in the USA, but the Multiculturalists are keeping under wraps. Here’s an example from a tag search – Idaho – on SlantRight 2.0.

 

I am not an Islamophobe. A better word to combine with Islam is something denoting an anger that is a settled established opposition to the theopolitical religion.

 

So, I am a Islamorgizo. TAKE THAT all you Multiculturalist Leftists that have abandoned the Latin motto of E Pluribus Unum (Out of Many, One). Muslim refugees have zero intention of becoming ONE, they intend to be the diverse MANY with the hope making non-Muslim America Islamic. An Islamic America is an America without the Bill of Rights.

 

Conquest and forced submission is Islam became an empire in the once Christian Middle East and North Africa.

 

Mo was one slick operator. He discovered Jews and Christians developed a huge personal loyalty to a monotheistic God. Mo was in charge of a loyalty cult. Perhaps Mo could strengthen that loyalty if he borrowed from the Judeo-Christian traditions and perhaps entice Jews and Christians to accept him into their prophet traditions as the “final” prophet.

 

Yah, a majority of Jews and Christians recognized invitation as a heretical warping of their faith.

 

Suddenly Jews and Christians were demoted from “People of the Book” (i.e. the Bible) to the descendants of apes (Jews) and liars or idiotic deceived for believing Jesus was the Son of God, died on the Cross and arose bodily as the Redeemer of humanity co-equal with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. Mo convincingly spoke of Father, Son and Holy Spirit three separate entities; hence Christians were polytheistic and not monotheistic like Mo’s moon-god allah (even though allah was once a part of Arab polytheistic pantheon).

 

I feel compelled to take a shot at explaining the monotheism of the Christian Trinity.

 

God is one in Father, Son and Holy Spirit as a human is one corporeally as a human spirit (the source of being or existence made in the image of God), a human soul (the source of thought and will) and a body (the flesh of our five senses). God is a Triune God and a human is a tripartite individual.

 

In full disclosure, people of the Jewish faith (Judaism) also view the Trinity as a diffusion of their primary statement of faith in the Shema: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one![a]” (Deuteronomy 6:4 NKJV) But that is a different theological discussion that is not a part of this topic. Suffice it to say, Christians view the discussion between Moses and God in Exodus 3:14-15 (NKJV):

 

14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” 15 Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’

 

The English translation I AM WHO I AM comes from the letters YWVH. In the old King James Version those letters were translated as Jehovah. Most Bible scholars prefer the translation of Yahweh today. It is my understanding that Observant Jews find it disrespectful to verbalize the name. Thus, you probably read YWVH or G-d when written by a person of Jewish faith.

 

Either way, both Jews and Christians view God as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Abraham’s oldest son Ishmael from Hagar the servant of Sarah, is not a part of that lineage as Mo preached.

 

As a Christian, my largest reason for having an aversion to Islam (but not to Muslims personally), is its rejection of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the denial of the Lord’s crucified death, burial and Resurrection reasserting His prerogatives as God Almighty yet as also being fully human in order to be the Redeemer of humanity.

 

The New Testament calls such rejection an Antichrist spirit. That’s a dangerous place to be as a human:

 

4 1Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the worldBy this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of Godand every spirit that does not confess that[a] Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. (Bold Text Mine I John 4: 1-3 NKJV)

 

Islam’s revered writings (Quran, Hadith & Sira [Sunna]) specifically – not metaphorically – condemns the Divinity, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. This makes all of Islam – Sunni & Shia – an Antichrist warped religion.

 

In full disclosure, I believe all religions not Christian are a danger to the Salvation of an individual person. The only religion I give an exception to is Judaism. Just as an aside, without Jews there would be no Jesus. No Jesus means eternal separation from the Presence of God because there is no Redemption from Adam and Eve’s rebellion against God that began humanity’s separation from God.

 

Jesus told this to the Samaritan woman whose religious faith was an eclectic combination of Judaism and polytheism:

 

19 The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”

 

21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. (Bold Text Mine John 4: 19-22 NKJV)

 

It is my personal opinion and I can’t think of any Christian theologian who has said this, when Christ returns in power the second time to establish His Kingdom governance on Earth, I believe Observant Jews will recognize Jesus finally as the Messiah they watched for generations and generations.

 

I recognize that Observant Jews are laughing at me right now and that idiotic Antisemitic Christians are horrified, but oh well. I’ll stick with that opinion unless God smacks around to change. I’m nearly 61 and Divine slapping around has occurred. Humans slapping me around for my opinion don’t count. God’s Hand trumps humankind’s hand.

 

Well that is some good preaching if you receive it.

 

BACK TO ISLAM.

 

I am a huge supporter of the American First Amendment:

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (The links are to Heritage Foundation essays on Establishment of Religion and to the Free Exercise of Religion. The Heritage Guide to The Constitution; Heritage Foundation; © 2017)

 

The government is Constitutionally prohibiting the establishment of a religion (but citizens are not prohibited to influence government regardless of SCOTUS Leftist misinterpretation – another topic), AND the government CANNOT prevent the free exercise of religion.

 

I do find Islam abhorrent as an Antichrist religion, but I honor the Constitution by standing with Muslims to practice their wicked religion ….

 

UNLESS

 

Islamic adherents or adherents of any religion or ideology actively or even violently, seeks to violate the Constitutional law in rebellion, squelching others’ Bill of Rights liberties. THEN Judges and Congressional legislators will have to find that fine Constitutional line that protects the Constitution from a violent termination.

 

If Multiculturalist Leftists persist in demonizing President Trump’s efforts to slow down the flood of Muslims devoted to the tenets of Islam which will always lead to the hatred of the U.S. Constitution and by extension all Americans that stand by the Liberty and Rights provided therein.

Christians Fear to Attend Sunday Service


Shamim writes about Muslims of a community in the Rawalpindi area of Pakistan harassing Pakistani-Christians primarily because the Muslims find the Christian services offensive.

 

Shamim doesn’t really share the specific details of the Muslim Islamic Supremacism against Christian religious freedom. I found an article the Christian Times Pakistan that make the issues a bit clearer:

 

Rawalpindi Neighborhood Christians & Muslims Clash Over Religious Freedom (Photo: Christian Times Pakistan)

 

 

The complainants namely Muhammad Sajid, Rashid Akhtar, Afzal Hussain and Muhammad Sadiq have maintained that some Christian residents of the locality including Patras Salamat Masih, James Allah Ditta and others are carrying out church activities which are bothering them.

 

In an application submitted at the New Town Police Station, the complainants claimed that Patras and James have illegally formed a church in house right in front of theirs. “They perform their religious ceremonies three days a week (Sunday, Tuesday and Saturday).” The complainants claim that during the church services Christian youngsters are stationed on the street; who block the passage of lay people on the street.

 

Moreover, the complainants said that whenever a Christian dies, these congregants use the street for observing funeral ceremonies. They said that religious practices of these Christians have caused much nuisance to them. Furthermore, the complainants have stated that when they tried to approach the church’ administration they hurled death threats at us.

 

Sajid, Rashid, Afzal and Sadiq also claim that Patras and James were allegedly trying to pressurize them to sell their houses and leave the street. “We also informed the Union Council Chairman, Abid Hussain Abbasi,” they maintained in the compliant. They maintained that the Union Council Chairman had also advised them to sell their properties to the Christians and leave the street.

 

On the other hand, the Christians claim that on August 8, 2017, Sajid, Rashid, Afzal and Sadiq long with others arrived at the church when a prayer service was going on. Christians allege that the said people arrived with intent to attack the congregants and therefore the police was informed about the situation. (Bold text Editor’s — Rawalpindi: Tension arises between Christians, Muslims in New Town neighborhood; By  admin; Christian Times Pakistan; 10/3/17)

 

I used bold text to point out that Muslims often lie when it comes to the religious liberty of Christians. This is particularly so when Islamic Supremacist use Pakistan’s Blasphemy Law to eject or cause harm to Christians.

Christians Fear to Attend Sunday Service

RAWALPINDI: Christians fear of attending ceremonial services and Sunday service due to the threats of Muslims living in the neighborhood. Muslims disrupted church a service and wanted to eliminate the church building in the twin area of Rawalpindi, a twin city of Pakistan. Police are reluctant to arrest Muslims even after the attack.

 

According to the reports, a group of 13 people in the town area of Rawalpindi district filed an application against the Pastor Patras Salamat at the office of the district administrator “City Police Officer” (CPO) to shut down the church. The CPO Israr Abbasi ordered the concerned officials to take stern action against the church administration, the report said. The document available with the Covenant TV reads that Mohammad Sajid, Rashid Akhter, Mohammad Sadiq and others have filed an application against the Pastor Patras Salamat and James Allah Dita to stop the religious ceremony done by local the Christians around their houses and also wrote a threatening statement between the lines. Number of 13 members of the locality wrote an application to the district administration with their signatures underwritten and said that due to their Sunday service and the religious ceremonial; the Muslim community living around feels irritated and itchy. Therefore, they have requested the higher ups to remove the church from their neighborhood. The city administrator (CPO) ordered the concerned officials to take action and stop these activities, the document reads.

 

Application CPO

 

In talking to the Covenant TV Pastor Patras Salamat, he said the Philadelphia Pentecostal Church is a registered body under the constitutions of the country and was established nineteen years ago at the same place when his father Pastor Salamat purchased the land and started with the small building. And with the passage of time as the church grew, he purchased the nearby land as well. The Philadelphia Pentecostal Church is registered and the sitting Priest claimed that he obtain the written approval for the said piece of land for Church building from the local administration. On every Sunday service the police chief also assigned two police security at the venue. When the congregation gathered for the service, we also arrange our church volunteers to take care of the visitors and congregation as well.

 

A few weeks back, when the service was on and as soon as worshipers began worshipping, Mohammad Sajid and a few other Muslims arrived armed with guns and machetes to disrupt the Sunday service and shouted to stop the service. The church administration went to resolve the issue.  Later the local administration arranged a reconciliation meeting between the Muslims and members of the congregation. After a few days the Muslims again filed an application to the senior officials, he added.

 

Mr. Javed Youhana, a regular church-goer said that he used to attend the Sunday services since 1999 but he feels himself insecure while going to church since the Muslim in the neighborhood have threatened the Christians. Basharat Khokher, an activist said, “I live nearby but attend the service on regular basis with my family, since the attack on [the] church has created [a] sense of insecurity in me and many others. We live under constant traumatiz[ation] since the attacks began on Pakistan on worship places by the extremists. … For the most time, when I go to church I fear anything can happen anytime and I feel whether I will go back home (alive) or not.” [Blog Editor: Emphasis mine]

 

Taliban terrorists and extremist in Pakistan have been attacking worship places of the religious minorities across the country for the last two decades, killing hundreds and with thousands injured. Many of them are still living with their constant diseases and some are paralyzed due to these attacks while worshiping their God. There have been attacks on Shiite mosques and Imambargahs; Bohra worship places; Ahmadiya community worship places; Churches; and Hindu temples. Due to the situation, the minorities in general, live in the grip of fear even during the worship.

Resisting Islamic Cultural Intrusion

Battle of Lepanto 1571

 

In an email alert today (10/13/17), Bill Warner – prior to introducing a new expose Islam video (What I Admire about Islam) – writes about how the Polish collective stood against EU Multiculturalism with a massive rosary prayer pertaining resisting more Muslim migrants by highlighting the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. Lepanto is one of those historic battles against Ottoman Turkish invasions that helped preserve Western culture from the brutality of Islamic conquest.

 

The National Review on October 7 – the anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto – gives a brief history lesson on how brutal Muslim imperialists made numerous attempts to subjugate the last bastion of Christianity that looks at momentous Islamic setbacks such as Charles Martel repulsing a then considered superior Muslim force at the Battle of Tours/Poitiers in 732 AD, then some Muslim vicious victories, another spectacular Christian victory at the Battle of Vienna in 1683 under the leadership of Polish King Jan (John) III Sobieski and then adding more detail to the battle of Lepanto in 1571.

 

Between victories at Vienna and Lepanto, Muslim military began to wane and recede back Muslim entrenched populations already brutally converted to Islam.

 

I admire Polish resistance in this present time to defy European Union Multiculturalism and prevent further Muslim twisting of Western/Christian culture.

 

Below is the Bill Warner intro on Polish activism that has a link to a Gateway Pundit report on Polish resistance to Leftist Multiculturalism and Islamic cultural infusion.

Battles Have Consequences

Excerpt Political Islam Alert

 

There comes a time in life when a person must stand for something or stand for nothing.  The Polish people know what Islamic migration would do to their country, and this acknowledgement was the driver for their standing up and praying en mass in commemoration of the Battle of Lepanto. In this naval battle of 1571, the outnumbered Europeans fought and won against the Muslim Ottoman Turks. Their show of spirit and deep devotion to their religious beliefs and the ideals of Western Civilization is to be commended. I hope they continue to stay strong in their stance.
If only Americans knew their own country’s history and would commemorate defeating the Muslim Barbary States pirates who took the jizya from ships sailing the Mediterranean in the early 19th century, I would be a happy man.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS Gather To Pray Rosary Along Poland’s Borders For Defense Against Secularism, Islam

 

 

Polish PM, Beata Szydło Tweets Support For Event Marking Feast of Our Lady of The Rosary, Commemorating Historic Victory That Saved Europe from Ottoman Turks in 1571

 

By Damien Cowley

October 9, 2017

Gateway Pundit

 

Hundreds of thousands of Poles took part in a massive prayer vigil Saturday, forming a human chain which spanned the length of the nation’s 2,200-mile border – through forested wilderness and snowy mountain crossings, along river banks and coastal beaches. Fishing trawlers and sailing boats joined the event on open water whilst airport chapels were said to be overflowing.

 

The ‘Różaniec do grana’’, or ‘’Rosary to the Borders’’ event was deliberately planned to coincide with the liturgical feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary (October 7th), which commemorates the landmark 1571 Battle of Lepanto in which outnumbered European forces under Pope Pius V won a decisive naval battle against the Ottoman Turks. The victory, credited with saving Europe from Islamic expansion, was attributed to the praying of the rosary by beleaguered Christian forces.

 

Impressive crowds gathered for Mass Saturday morning, followed by processions to 4,000 border locations, each selected to be several hundred yards from the next so as to encircle the entire Polish territory in a ‘’chain of prayer.’’

 

In Catholic tradition, the rosary has long since been considered a spiritual weapon against evil, and a means of conversion to Christ by way of his mother, Mary.

 

Social media accounts were soon flooded with images of the unusual event, which organizers hope will have mobilized at least one million of Poland’s predominantly Catholic population of 38 million.

 

Archbishop of Krakow, Marek Jedraszewski asked participants to pray “for other European nations to make them understand the necessity of returning to their Christian roots in order that Europe remains Europe.”

 

Polish Prime Minister, Beata Szydło, a devout Catholic and mother of a recently ordained priest, tweeted an image of her own rosary beads and a greeting in support of those taking part.

In certain cases, Polish citizens were joined in prayer by participants across the border; Poland has land borders with Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Ukraine, Belarus and Russia (Kaliningrad).

 

The popularity of the event reflects the level of Christian faith still found in Poland along with a general sense of foreboding over what many Poles see as an attack on their values coming from a European Union accelerating into chaos.

 

“Poland is in danger. We need to shield our families, our homes, our country from all kinds of threats, including the de-Christianization of our society, which the EU’s liberals want to impose on us,” one participant explained to the AFP, adding that Islam was again becoming a threat as in centuries past.

 

Organized by a group of lay Catholics, Solo Dios Basta (God Alone Is Enough), the project was the idea of young documentary film-maker, Maciej Bodasiński, and enjoyed the support of numerous actors, sports stars and media personalities.

Political Islam About Page

 

What is Islam?

 

Islam is a cultural, religious [sic] and political system. Only the political system is of interest to kafirs (non-Muslims) since it determines how we are defined and treated. The Islamic political system is contained in the Koran, the Hadith (the traditions of Mohammed) and his biography, the Sira.

 

Our Mission

 

Political Islam has subjugated other civilizations for 1400 years. Our mission is to educate the world about political Islam, its founder Mohammed, his political doctrine and his god, Allah.

 

The Five Principles

 

Islam’s Trilogy of three sacred texts is the Koran and two books about the life of Mohammed. When the Trilogy is sorted, categorized, arranged, rewritten and analyzed, it becomes apparent that five principles are the foundation of Islam.

 

All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy—KoraSira (Mohammed’s biography) and Hadith (his Traditions).


Most of the Islamic doctrine is political, not religious. Islam is a political ideology.

 

Islam divides the world into Muslims and unbelievers, kafirs.

 

Political Islam always has two different ways to treat kafirs—dualistic ethics. Kafirs can be  READ THE REST

Persecuted Pakistan Christian Sakharov Prize Nominee


John R. Houk

© September 19, 2017

 

Asia Bibi is a Pakistani Christian that has been languishing in a Pakistani jail for a better of a decade wondering if the Pakistan government will ever proceed on the death sentence passed against her for breaking the anti-religious freedom Blasphemy Law.

 

Asia has been nominated for a prestigious award from the EU that I pray places more pressure on the Pakistan government to release her with the ability of Asia Bibi and family to receive political asylum in a more civilized nation. The award is called the Sakharov Prize.

 

About the Sakharov Prize:

 

The European Parliament also supports human rights through the annual Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, established in 1988.  The prize is awarded to individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the fight for human rights across the globe, drawing attention to human rights violations as well as supporting the laureates and their cause. (The European Parliament supports human rights; European Parliament)

 

The nominees were announced on September 14, 2017. Here is the nominee list which Asia Bibi is listed first:

 

The nominees for this year’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought are:

Asia Bibi (Aasiya Noreen), a Pakistani Christian woman sentenced to death in 2010 under the country´s blasphemy law. Bibi is on a death row for almost seven years and her appeal to the supreme court has been postponed to an undetermined date. She was nominated by ECR.

Aura Lolita Chavez Ixcaquic, a human rights defender from Guatemala. She is a member from the Council of Ki’che’ Peoples (CPK), an organisation that fights to protect natural resources and human rights from the expansion of mining, logging, hydroelectric and agro-industry sectors in the territory and has been subject to threats. She was nominated by Greens/EFA.

Selahattin Demirtas and Figen Yuksekdag, co-chairs of the pro-kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP) in Turkey arrested in November 2016 on terrorism charges after their parliamentary immunity was lifted. They were nominated by GUE/NGL.

Democratic Opposition in Venezuela: National Assembly (Julio Borges) and all political prisoners as listed by Foro Penal Venezolano represented by Leopoldo López, Antonio Ledezma, Daniel Ceballos, Yon Goicoechea, Lorent Saleh, Alfredo Ramos and Andrea González. The situation in Venezuela has been seriously deteriorating as regards democracy, human rights and socio-economy, in a climate of growing political and social instability. Nominated by EPP and ALDE. Political prisoners in Venezuela as well as the democratic opposition in Venezuela were also shortlisted for the Sakharov Prize in 2015.

Dawit Isaak, a Swedish-Eritrean playwright, journalist and writer, who was arrested in 2001 by the Eritrean authorities during a political crackdown. He has been imprisoned without a trial since and was last seen in 2005. Isaak was Sakharov finalist in 2009. He was nominated by S&D as well as by Wikström and 46 other MEPs.

Pierre Claver Mbonimpa, a Burundian human rights activist and founder of the Association for the Protection of Human Rights and Detained Persons (APRODH). He was detained in 2014, escaped an assassination attempt in 2015 and is now living in Belgium. He was nominated by EFDD.

In case you have been out of the loop or have forgotten the idiotic reason for Asia’s death sentence, here is an excerpt from a past post which was dated 7/25/15:

 

The women said in their charge that Bibi asked “My Christ died for me, what did Muhammad do for you?” — a statement considered blasphemous in the South Asian country. (Bold Text Mine Christian Post)

 

 

Asia life behind bars has not been a bowl of strawberries and cream. Check out this excerpt from a New York Post article in 2013 that encouraged people to buy Asia’s memoir to help her now persecuted family and to pay Pakistan lawyers to working legal issues for an appeal:

 

To her neighbors, Aasiya Noreen “Asia” Bibi, a poor mother of five in the tiny village of Ittan Wali in central Pakistan, was guilty — guilty of being Christian in a nation that is 97% Muslim. For four years she has languished in a prison cell for this, facing death by hanging.

Her new memoir, “Blasphemy,” was dictated to her husband from jail, who relayed it to French journalist Anne-Isabelle Tollet. Fifty percent of the proceeds the book will go to support Bibi and her family. Tollet says the situation is dire. 

 Embarrassed by Bibi’s case but still refusing to release her because of angry protests by extremists, the Pakistan government has transferred her to a more remote prison, hoping the 42-year-old dies quietly behind bars, perhaps poisoned by another inmate. Already two government officials who have spoken out on her behalf have been murdered, including Minister for Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti, who was killed by the Taliban. In this excerpt, Bibi explains the simple “transgression” that led to her plight.

 

 

 I want the whole world to know that I’m going to be hanged for helping my neighbor. I’m guilty of having shown someone sympathy. What did I do wrong? I drank water from a well belonging to Muslim women, using “their” cup, in the burning heat of the midday sun.

 I, Asia Bibi, have been sentenced to death because I was thirsty. I’m a prisoner because I used the same cup as those Muslim women, because water served by a Christian woman was regarded as unclean by my stupid fellow fruit-pickers.

 That day, June 14, 2009, is imprinted on my memory. I can still see every detail.

 That morning I got up earlier than usual, to take part in the big falsa-berry harvest. I’d been told about it by Farah, our lovely local shopkeeper. “Why don’t you go falsa picking tomorrow in that field just outside the village? You know the one; it belongs to the Nadeems, the rich family who live in Lahore. The pay is 250 rupees.”

When I got to the field, around 15 women were already at work, picking away, their backs hidden by the tall bushes. It was going to be a physically exhausting day in such heat, but I needed those 250 rupees.

A hard-faced woman dressed in clothes that had been mended many times came over to me with an old yellow bowl.

 “If you fill the bowl you get 250 rupees,” she said without really looking at me.

 I looked at the huge bowl and thought I would never finish before sunset. Looking at the other women’s bowls, I also realized mine was much bigger. They were reminding me that I’m a Christian.

 The sun was beating down, and by midday it was like working in an oven. …

 But since the river was nowhere near, I freed myself from my bushes and walked over to the nearby well. Already I could sense the coolness rising up from the depths.

 I pull up a bucketful of water and dip in the old metal cup resting on the side of the well. The cool water is all I can think of. I gulp it down and I feel better; I pull myself together.

 Then I start to hear muttering. I pay no attention and fill the cup again, this time holding it out to a woman next to me who looks like she’s in pain. She smiles and reaches out . . . At exactly the moment Musarat pokes her ferrety nose out from the bush, her eyes full of hate:

 “Don’t drink that water, it’s haram!”

 Musarat addresses all the pickers, who have suddenly stopped work at the sound of the word “haram,” the Islamic term for anything forbidden by God.

 “Listen, all of you, this Christian has dirtied the water in the well by drinking from our cup and dipping it back several times. Now the water is unclean and we can’t drink it! Because of her!”

 It’s so unfair that for once I decide to defend myself and stand up to the old witch.

“I think Jesus would see if differently from Mohammed.”

 Musarat is furious. “How dare you think for the Prophet, you filthy animal!”

(Asia Bibi Gets Execution Stay – Now Push for Political Asylum; By John R. Houk; SlantRight 2.0; 7/25/15)

 

It’s been over two years since I posted the original excerpt above. As far as I know, NOTHING HAS CHANGED! Asia Bibi (or her less well-known name – Aasiya Noreen) is still languishing in jail.

 

The closest update I have found is from an online French Catholic publication called Aleteia which also publishes in English:

 

Condemned to death in 2009 for insulting Islam, the Pakistani Catholic is still awaiting her final verdict.

 

On June 14, 2009, Asia Bibi was thrown into jail. A year later she was sentenced to death for blasphemy, and since 2013, after two transfers, she has been languishing in one of the three windowless cells on death row in the southern province of Multan in the Punjab Penitentiary. A year after the Supreme Court of Pakistan postponed her appeal amid death threats by 150 muftis (Muslim legal experts) against anyone who would assist “blasphemers,” the case has not progressed by one iota. On August 30, Asia Bibi had spent 3,000 days in prison.

 

Her family lives underground. The only thing we know comes from her lawyer, the Muslim Saif ul Malook, who has visited her in recent months. He says she is doing well and is still hoping for her release. On the other hand, the Supreme Court seems to have forgotten the case, and has still not decided whether to confirm her death sentence or to release her.

 

During those 3,000 days Asia Bibi has never stopped praying and asking for prayers. As a tribute to this Christian who has become an icon for all those who struggle in Pakistan and the world against all violence in the name of religion, this is the prayer she composed last year on the occasion of the Easter celebrations, and which accompanies her in her detention:

 

Resurrected Lord, allow your daughter Asia to rise again with you. Break my chains, make my heart free and go beyond these bars, and accompany my soul so that it is close to those who are dear to me, and that it remains always near you. Do not abandon me in the day of trouble, do not deprive me of your presence. You who have suffered torture and the cross, alleviate my suffering. Hold me near you, Lord Jesus. On the day of your resurrection, Jesus, I want to pray for my enemies, for those who hurt me. I pray for them and I beg you to forgive them for the harm they have done me. I ask you, Lord, to remove all obstacles so that I may obtain the blessing of freedom. I ask you to protect me and protect my family.

 

After eight years of suffering, anguish and disappointed hopes, let us keep up our prayers and our actions of support for her, because through her we support all the persecuted Christians in their sacrifices. (Asia Bibi has spent more than 3,000 days in prison for blasphemy; By Isabelle Cousturie; Aleteia; 9/18/17)

 

The organization Prisoner Profile has a post tracking Asia Bibi’s Pakistan legal system difficulties/persecution with the dates 6/2009 through 5/2017.

 

Dan Wooding the Chief Editor of Assist News Service (ANS) sent the email alert notifying me of Asia Bibi’s Sakharov Prize nomination. Below is my cross post of that ANS article.

ASIA BIBI NOMINATED FOR EU’S PRESTIGIOUS SAKHAROV PRIZE

PAKISTAN (ANS – September 17, 2017) — Pakistan’s most famous Christian prisoner, Asia Bibi, has been nominated for the European Union’s high-status award, the Sakharov Prize.

 

Ms. Bibi, a mother-of-five, who is currently behind the bars waiting for a hearing of her appeal against capital punishment, was nominated by a group of European legislators.

 

According to Madeeha Bakhsh, writing for Christians in Pakistan (https://www.christiansinpakistan.com/), “Asia has been nominated for ‘Freedom of Thought’ by the legislators who form an influential group European Conservatives and Reformists Group (ECR). This European Conservatives and Reformists Group is the third largest group in the European Parliament,” she wrote. “The European Conservatives and Reformists Group (ECR), nominated Asia Bibi late on Wednesday, September 13.”

 

Sakharov on Time Mag Cover

 

Peter van Dalen, a Dutch European parliamentarian and member of ECR’s faction, ChristenUnion-SGP, said: “Her case is a symbol for others hurt in their freedom of expression and especially freedom of religion. It is good that my colleagues in the ECR and I continue to defend the rights of [Asia] Bibi and many others.”

 

Members of the entire European Parliament will soon be casting their votes in favor of their favorite candidate.

 

“If a majority casts [their] votes in favor of Asia Bibi; she could win the €50,000 ($59,670 USD) award for the Sakharov Prize, which is considered Europe’s most prestigious human rights award,” said Madeeha Bakhsh. “This award is named after Andrei Sakharov, a scientist and dissident hailing from the Soviet era.”

 

Sakharov died on December 14, 1989, and the award ceremony will be held in Strasbourg, France, on December 10.

 

Asia Bibi, a berry picker, was accused of committing blasphemy by her co-workers back in 2009. Later on, in 2010, a court in the Punjab district of Nankana found her guilty and she was sentenced to death by hanging, a verdict later challenged and upheld by a two-member bench of Lahore High Court in 2014.

 

Her appeal case is currently pending with the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

 

“Supposedly her final appeal hearing on October 13, 2016, was meant to wind up the most high profile case of the country, however, it was delayed as one of the judges refused to be a part of the three member bench that was to hear the case,” added Bakhsh.

 

Salman Taseer meeting with Asia Bibi

 

She said that on the date of the hearing, Justice Iqbal Hameed ur Rehman, one of the three judges due to hear Asia Bibi’s appeal case, suddenly withdrew saying, “I was a part of the bench that was hearing the case of Salmaan Taseer, and this case is related to that.”

 

Asia Bibi’s husband (Ashiq Masih) and family

 

The judge was referring to the case of the then governor of Punjab, who was assassinated on January 4, 2011, at the Kohsar Market in Islamabad by his bodyguard, Mumtaz Qadri, who disagreed with Taseer’s opposition to Pakistan’s blasphemy law and his support for Asia Bibi. Qadri was later sentenced to death by a Pakistani Anti-Terrorist court at Islamabad for murdering Taseer, and was executed on February 29, 2016.

 

Consequently, the hearing was adjourned and Ms. Bibi is still on death row in her lonely prison cell.
