Kenyan Christian apologist beaten, left for dead by Muslims

On January 29th, six Kenyan Islamic extremists stopped a Christian evangelist in Nairobi on his way to participate in a debate about Christianity and Islam in Kampala, Uganda and beat him unconscious, reports Morning Star News.

Charles Kamya, age 43, said one of the assailants told him, “You have been terrorizing our religion. Today, Allah has called you, and you are going to meet him.” A blow to the head with an iron bar left him unconscious for about two hours. A passerby found him in a pool of blood and called police.

Five days earlier, Kamya debated Muslims and many converted to Christ.

Romans 10:15 says, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Are the Chinese using COVID to weaken Olympic competitors?

Some Olympic athletes who test positive for the coronavirus at the Beijing Olympics feel their quarantine conditions are making a bad situation much worse, reports the Associated Press. There’s not enough food, inedible meals, and no training equipment.

From one of Beijing’s so-called quarantine hotels, Russian biathlon competitor Valeria Vasnetsova posted a picture last Thursday of what she said was “breakfast, lunch and dinner for five days already” — a tray with food including plain pasta, an orange sauce, charred meat on a bone, a few potatoes, and no greens.

On Instagram she said, “My stomach hurts, I’m very pale, and I have huge black circles around my eyes. I want all this to end. I cry every day. I’m very tired.”

The rules for athletes who test positive in China say those without symptoms go to a dedicated hotel for isolation. Anyone who has COVID-19 with symptoms will go to a hospital. In both cases, they’ll be unable to compete until cleared for discharge.

Vasnetsova passed her time in quarantine with a little detective work. When fetching the food left outside her door, she took a glance at the boxes left outside other rooms in her corridor, whose doors were labeled with signs to distinguish Olympians from other people working at the Games who tested positive, such as team staff.

She concluded the athletes were getting worse food, and underlined it with a picture of food served to her team doctor, who had also tested positive and was living two floors below. He had fresh fruit, a salad, and prawns with broccoli.

It appears as though China is using the COVID pandemic as a way to literally weaken their Olympic competitors.

Belgian skeleton racer Kim Meylemans recorded a tearful video about how she has been treated during her COVID isolation nightmare, reports 7News.

MEYLEMANS: “Another seven days with 2 PCR [COVID tests] and no contact with anybody else we are not even sure I will ever be allowed to return to the [Olympic ] Village. And obviously this is very hard for me.”

ABC suspended Whoopi Goldberg for bizarre Holocaust comments

In the midst of a discussion about a novel entitled Maus, which describes the horrors of the Holocaust, including the killing of children, Nazi gas chambers and forced labor,  Whoopi Goldberg, the host of ABC’s The View, claimed last Monday that the Holocaust was not about race.

GOLDBERG: “Let’s be truthful about it because the Holocaust isn’t about race. No, it’s not about race.”

JOY BEHAR: “But it’s about white supremacy.”

GOLDBERG: “These are two white groups of people. And the minute you turn it into race, it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s how people treat each other. It’s not about race.

BEHAR: “What is it about?”

GOLDBERG: “It’s about man’s inhumanity to man.”

Goldberg appeared on CBS’ Late Show with Stephen Colbert in an attempt to explain herself.

COLBERT: “The American Experience tends to be based on skin.”

GOLDBERG: “Yes. And so that is what race means to me. When you talk about being a racist, I was saying, you can’t call this racism. This was evil. This wasn’t this wasn’t based on the skin. You couldn’t tell who was Jewish. They had to delve deeply to figure it out.

“Most of the Nazis were white people and most of the people they were attacking were white people. So, to me, I’m thinking, ‘How can you how can you say it’s about race if you are fighting each other?’”

Subsequently, ABC asked Goldberg to issue an apology on the air.

GOLDBERG: “I said that the Holocaust wasn’t about race, and it was instead about man’s inhumanity to man. But, it is indeed about race, because Hitler and the Nazis considered Jews to be an inferior race. Now, words matter and mine are no exception. I regret my comments as I said, and I stand corrected. I also stand with the Jewish people, as they know and y’all know, because I’ve always done that.”

Last Tuesday, ABC suspended her for two weeks.

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, offered his analysis.

GREENBLATT: “Throughout the Jewish people’s history they have been marginalized, they have been persecuted, they have been slaughtered, in large part, because many people felt they were not just a different religion but indeed a different race.”

Romans 10:1 says, “My heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved.”

33-year-old father dies of immune disorder linked to Pfizer COVID shot

A healthy 33-year-old husband and father died last week of an autoimmune reaction that his doctors say is linked to Pfizer’s COVID shot, reports

Brandon Pollet, a Louisiana instrument mechanic and father of a one-year-old daughter, died last Friday after being diagnosed with multiple immune disorders. Pollet’s conditions began to develop immediately after his second Pfizer shot at the end of August, according to a GoFundMe fundraiser set up for his medical and funeral expenses.

His wife, Jessica Pollet, said, “Brandon had no prior medical history. After his second Pfizer vaccine, Brandon developed a headache right away then fever 48 hours after. The doctors have agreed that the COVID vaccine caused an immune response that led to the development of the autoimmune disease and HLH,” reports the St. Charles Herald Guide.

Court reinstates Tennessee Down syndrome abortion ban

And finally, a federal appeals court has allowed a Tennessee law that bans abortions performed based on an unborn baby being diagnosed with Down syndrome to take effect. The court reversed an earlier court order blocking the law, reports the Christian Post.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit issued an order last Wednesday allowing the law passed in 2020, that bans abortions based on Down syndrome, race or gender, to be reinstated. The ruling reversed a temporary injunction.
