Rugby Player Might Lose Career over Christian Instagram Post
According to the University of Melbourne, a code of conduct hearing has been scheduled this week for Australia’s star rugby player, Israel Folau, for a social media post, stating that “hell awaits” homosexuals, drunks, and liars, and that “those living in sin would end up in hell, unless they repent.”
For this, the Rugby Association’s “Integrity Unit” charged Folau with committing a “high-level breach of the Professional Players’ Code of Conduct.”
Avengers: Endgame Feeds World’s Love Affair with Fantasy
The world’s love affair with fantasy films literally exploded over the weekend with Avengers: Endgame, breaking first weekend records at the box office with $1.2 billion of ticket sales.

Biblical Marriage Falling Like Dominoes in Caribbean
The battle to retain traditional marriage in the Caribbean is in full swing now.
Last month, a Cayman Island Supreme Court Justice, by the name of Anthony Smellie, attempted to legitimize marriage between women living in unnatural relations, reports the Cayman Compass. However, that decision was stayed last week by an appeals court, with the intent that the decision would be appealed to the UK parliament.
Bermuda’s Supreme Court approved of unnatural marriage in November of last year, joining Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, as well as the Antilles Islands which are governed by Dutch law.
A judge in Trinidad and Tobago ruled laws against homosexuality unconstitutional last April, reports The Guardian.
Jeremiah 25:31 says, “The clamor will resound to the ends of the earth, for the Lord has an indictment against the nations; He is entering into judgment with all flesh, and the wicked He will put to the sword, declares the Lord.’ Behold, disaster is going forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest is stirring from the farthest parts of the earth!”

Trump to NRA: “We Don’t Worship Gov’t; We Worship God.”
Speaking to the National Rifle Association over the weekend, listen to what President Donald Trump told American parents to teach their children about love for their country and honor for the nation’s history.

8-Year-Old Boy Saves Sister from Kidnapper
And finally, a grandmother from Middleton, Ohio, was dropping a friend off at the hospital with two grandkids in the back of the car — and a kidnapper jumped into the driver’s seat and starting driving away.
According to the Middletown police Facebook page, “The 8-year-old little boy opened the door to escape and the little girl started to jump out also, but the man grabbed the hoodie of the little girl, not allowing her to leave. As she tried to get away, her little brother grabbed hold of her and pulled her away from the kidnapper and they both tumbled out of the vehicle as it was moving.”
Police Chief Muterspaw said, “This little guy is a hero. No question. He pulled his sister out of the car with no concern for his own safety. The police department has 24-year-old Dalvir Singh, a heroin addict, in custody on charges of kidnapping.”
