Pakistani Christian nurse falsely accused of Muslim blasphemy

Last week, a Pakistani Christian nurse named Sakina Mehtab said she was stunned to see videos of her Muslim colleagues, some armed with clubs and sticks, marching on hospital premises in the city of Lahore, shouting Islamist slogans and accusing her of Muslim blasphemy, reports

Mehtab had shared a video on WhatsApp of a Pakistani Muslim in Paris criticizing the response of Pakistani people and officials to a European Union Parliament resolution.

Mehtab, who is due to retire from the Punjab Institute of Mental Health in two years, said, “There was no religious element in it, but a group of nurses spread lies that the video was anti-Islamic and accused me of blasphemy.”

The Muslim protestors have intimidated the 345 Christians in the 600-strong medical workforce.  The Christian nurse has since gone into hiding after receiving anonymous calls threatening to “maim and kill” her over the false allegation.

Jesus said, “If the world hates you, know that it has hated Me before it hated you.” (John 15:8)

Biden cuts ‘God’ out of Day of Prayer proclamation

President Joe Biden cut “God” out of his proclamation for yesterday’s  National Day of Prayer, reports Instead, he called on “citizens” to follow “their own faiths and consciences.”

Listen to the opening paragraph.

Biden said, “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance. Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.”

In this critical paragraph, Biden references his two favorite subjects: racism and global warming. But again, no reference to God.

Biden said, “Today, we remember and celebrate the role that the healing balm of prayer can play in our lives and in the life of our Nation. As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic, to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.”

And, in this crescendo paragraph, it would be the most obvious moment for Biden to invite Americans to pray to God.  But again, any reference to our Lord was missing.

Biden said, “Now, therefore, I, Joseph R. Biden Jr., President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 6, 2021, as a National Day of Prayer. I invite the citizens of our Nation to give thanks, in accordance with their own faiths and consciences, for our many freedoms and blessings, and I join all people of faith in prayers for spiritual guidance, mercy, and protection.”

Give thanks to whom?

David Brody, host of The Water Cooler asked, “How do you release a proclamation about prayer and not mention God at all?”

Psalm 86:5 says, “For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon You.”

Franklin Graham: “There’s no one else to pray to except to God.”

Fox News Prime Time host Pete Hegseth was stunned by President Biden’s omission of God in the National Day of Prayer proclamation.

HEGSETH: “Our devout Catholic Commander-in-Chief raised some eyebrows today by not mentioning the word ‘God’ during his National Day of Prayer proclamation, the first president ever to do so. How can you do that on the National Day of Prayer?

“We’ve got the perfect guest to discuss the issue. Joining me now, Reverend Franklin Graham.”

GRAHAM: “Probably a staff person that wrote it, because I don’t think Joe Biden would have approved that one. This is a National Day of Prayer. Of course we need to call on God, not just some generic gods, or some power in the air, but on God Himself, the Creator, Who made and created this Earth, and who sent His Son Jesus Christ from Heaven to this Earth, to save mankind from sin by dying on a cross and God raised Him to life.

“There’s no one else to pray to except toGod. For Joe Biden to miss that, I just think maybe it was a staffer that did that, and he wasn’t even aware. So. I would like to give the benefit of the doubt to President Biden.”

Psalm 18:6 says, “In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help. From His temple He heard my voice, and my cry to Him reached His ears.”

Trump mentioned God 12 times in final Prayer Day proclamation

By contrast, one year ago yesterday, former President Donald Trump mentioned God about a dozen times in his final National Prayer Day proclamation.

Listen to just the first six sentences of President Trump’s 2020 Proclamation.

He wrote, “On this National Day of Prayer, Americans reaffirm that prayer guides and strengthens our Nation, and we express, with humility and gratitude, our ‘firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.’  As one Nation under God, we share a legacy of faith that sustains and inspires us and a heritage of religious liberty.  Today, we join together and lift up our hearts, remembering the words of 1 John 5:14 that tell us when “we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

Trump also wrote, “From our earliest days, our dependence upon God has brought us to seek His divine counsel and unfailing wisdom.  Our leaders have often encouraged their fellow citizens to seek wisdom from God and have recognized God’s power to lead our Nation ahead to brighter days.  When the prospects for our independence seemed bleak, General George Washington proclaimed a national day of ‘fasting, humiliation and prayer, humbly to supplicate the mercy of Almighty God.’”

Biden administration concealing real situation at the border

And finally, appearing yesterday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Texas Republican Lt. Governor Dan Patrick accused the Biden administration of concealing all the information about the American-Mexican border from the public.

PATRICK: “The Biden administration is totally concealing all information coming out from the border, all information. You just cannot get information at the state level or any level. I’m not even sure Joe Biden and Kamala Harris know what’s going on.”

In addition, Patrick explained how the Biden administration can claim that deportations are down.

PATRICK: “They talk about deportations are down, because they’re not sending anyone back! They’re letting everyone stay. The border has never been in worse shape, never more overrun. America is in trouble with their policy.”
