Why a Christian Pakistani medical student dropped out
Last month, Ayesha Masih, a Christian student at a medical college in Lahore, Pakistan, was forced to drop out after she experienced intense harassment from her Muslim classmates, reports International Christian Concern.
Knowing that she was a Christian, she said, “They started abusing me for allegedly insulting the Islamic textbooks by putting my backpack on the ground. I refused this allegation as I did not put my backpack on the ground. However, none of them listened and they started beating me.”
Fearing she could be falsely accused of blasphemy by a Muslim classmate, Ayesha dropped out of the medical college for her safety.
In Pakistan, false accusations of blasphemy against Islam are widespread and have the potential to spark mob lynchings and vigilante murders.
Matthew 10:22 says, “You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved.”
South Dakota Gov. to Biden: Your COVID mandates are unconstitutional
Appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox TV show with guest host Pete Hegseth, Republican South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem offered advice to governors of other states such as New York, New Jersey, and California on how to handle COVID, reports RealClearPolitics.com.
NOEM: “The number one thing that people can do to slow down the spread of a virus, go wash your hands. If you’re sick, stay home. And if you’re scared, stay home. But let the people that need to go out and make a living and get their kids educated, let them go do that. Because that’s really what needs to happen in this country, is that we still need to continue to live.”
Fox Host Pete Hegseth asked this.
HEGSETH: “How can people be reassured that their future isn’t vaccine mandates and double masks?”
NOEM: “Well, I’m thrilled that President Biden is finally agreeing with me. We have asked him to back off of these mandates. We have told him and now we’re suing him in court. Frankly, the federal government doesn’t have the authority to take these types of actions by requiring people to get vaccinated for their job or to receive federal funding or if they want to have a contract with the federal government or even participate in Headstart contracts.
“So, we are suing [Biden] in court and those will be heard within a week in the Supreme Court. It will win. And I think the President does know that he’s on very shaky ground here. It’s interesting to me, for him to say that the federal government isn’t the answer, that the answer has to come from the States when that’s exactly what US has governors have been asking to let us do.”
The South Dakota governor was responding to what President Joe Biden said a week ago Monday on a conference call with the governors.
BIDEN: “Look, there is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level. I’m looking at Governor [Christopher] Sununu [of New Hampshire] on the board here. He talks about that a lot.”

Betty White, champion of abortion & “gay” marriage, died
She was married three times, first to Dick Barker in 1945, leading to their divorce the same year; then to Lane Allen in 1947, getting divorced two years later, and finally to Allen Ludden, the host of the TV game show Password, in 1963. Ludden died in 1981.
Along with “Golden Girls” co-stars Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty and Rue McClanahan, Betty White lent her fame to promote abortion in 1989 when she filmed a pro-abortion TV ad, reports The Orlando Sentinel. The Golden Girls donated their time and the use of their set, cameras, and people for TV ads produced for “Florida Voice for Choice” that aired across the state throughout October of that year, which advocated baby-killing.
Plus, White was an early supporter of homosexual faux marriage, telling Parade magazine in 2010, “I don’t care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time – and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones – I think it’s fine if they want to get married. I don’t know how people can get so ‘anti-something.’ Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”
She echoed those sentiments in an interview with the late Larry King.
KING: “What do you have to say to those against gay advances, like gay marriage and the like?”
WHITE: “I don’t care whom you sleep with. It’s what kind of a human being are you.”
Sadly, with age, her humor became increasingly bawdy and unladylike.
Betty White disregarded the counsel of Psalm 90:12 which says, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
