70 Hindus attacked praying Christians, burning Bibles, injuring 6

A mob of 70 Hindus carrying weapons attacked a group of Christians who were praying at a believer’s home in India this week, burning Bibles and vandalizing furniture, reports The Christian Post. Six Christians sustained serious injuries.

Matthew 5:10 says, “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.”

Biden forgets Defense Secretary’s name & Pentagon’s name

Last Monday, March 8th, President Biden not only forgot Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s name at a White House event, but he also forgot the name of the Pentagon. He called the Pentagon chief “the guy who runs that outfit over there,” reports Fox News.

Biden was announcing the nomination of two female generals.


BIDEN:  “I just want to thank you both. And I want to thank the Secretary, the, the former general. I keep calling in general. My, my, the guy who runs that outfit over there. I want to make sure we thank the Secretary for all he’s done to try to implement what we just talked about.”

Fox News host Sean Hannity was aghast.

HANNITY: “The general that runs that thing over there.  The Pentagon?  I think we know why Joe Biden has not conducted a single press conference, still has not  given us a date for a State of the Union address.  He’s clearly not capable. The foreign press is now saying it openly: that he looks weak and frail and is struggling cognitively. And now it’s pretty much every day and every day It seems to get worse.”

Pressure builds on NY Gov. Cuomo to resign over sexual harassment

New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo is facing growing calls to resign as more accusers come forward, reports ABC 7 News.

Seven women have accused the governor of some form of sexual harassment or inappropriate touching.

Former statehouse reporter Jessica Bakeman wrote in a New York Magazine story that Cuomo touched her inappropriately while posing for a photograph. She believes it was intended to make her feel uncomfortable.

Cuomo vehemently denies the claims, saying in a Friday teleconference, “I did not do what is alleged, period.”

However, 16 out of 19 House Democrats in New York’s delegation are calling for him to step down.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York and Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand called on New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign.

Listen to Schumer.

SCHUMER: “The allegations of these women are very, very troubling. They all must be looked into. I’ve always strongly been against sexual harassment it cannot, cannot be tolerated.”

Plus, Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called for Cuomo to resign as well.

DE BLASIO:  “The governor should do the right thing and recognize that he just can’t do the job any longer. He’s lost the faith of his fellow leaders around the state and I think he’s increasingly losing the faith of the people.”

Oddly enough, Cuomo was spotted Friday outside the governor’s mansion covered in a blanket amid the growing pressure.

Evangelist Luis Palau died at 86

And finally, Evangelist Luis Palau died last Thursday morning at age 86 in his home in Portland, Oregon, following a battle with stage IV lung cancer.
