Egyptian Coptic priest stabbed to death last week
An Egyptian Coptic priest named Arsanious Wadid, who was killed late last week, reportedly faced years of persecution prior to his death, reports International Christian Concern.
He was stabbed several times in the neck by a currently unidentified assailant with unknown motives. The timing of his murder correlates with the Muslim season of Ramadan and the Christian Lenten season of Easter.
In 2000, he worked to begin building a new church in Karmouz. Extremists confronted him, attacked his car, and threatened to kill him.
His death sparks concern for subsequent attacks during a time of heightened religious tension and observance.
Wadid was true to 2 Corinthians 4:5 to the end. “For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord.”

RNC votes to withdraw From Commission on Presidential Debates
RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said the commission is “biased and has refused to enact simple and commonsense reforms to help ensure fair debates including hosting debates before voting begins and selecting moderators who have never worked for candidates on the debate stage.”
This vote comes months after the GOP threatened in a letter to urge its candidates to not participate in televised debates unless the commission adopts major reforms.
Cruz to DC Mayor: Deaths of 5 full-term aborted babies must be investigated
Writing to D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Metropolitan Police Chief Robert Contee III, Cruz expressed concern that city officials may “destroy evidence of serious alleged violations of federal law” by incinerating the babies’ bodies.
Pro-life advocates with the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising said they found the bodies of the five late-term aborted babies in late March in boxes from the Washington Surgi-Clinic, a late-term abortion mill in Washington, D.C.
(Warning: This video is graphic, and it depicts the tragedy of the story.)
The D.C. police have custody of the bodies, but they have refused to investigate if the babies were victims of crimes, according to Fox News.
Cruz criticized city leaders for refusing to perform autopsies on the babies and reminded them of their duty to preserve the babies’ bodies as evidence of possible crimes.
Amos 5:24 is our prayer. “Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.”
ACTION ALERT: Contact Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser online or by phone at (202) 727-2643 and urge her to preserve the babies’ bodies and initiate an investigation.
Christians hold second rally against Disney
On Wednesday, Sean Feucht held a second rally at Walt Disney’s headquarters in Burbank, California. The crowd objected to Disney’s advocacy of indoctrinating kindergarten through third grade children with the legitimacy of homosexuality and so-called gender fluidity.
Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis explained the purpose of the parental rights bill.
DESANTIS: “We will make sure that parents can send their kids to school to get an education not an indoctrination.”
DEUTH: “I drove all the way up. Coming here to make a statement out in front of Disney standing up for our children, we have a responsibility and a call by God to stand up and protect our children. . . . Joshua 24: I want to read it out in front of Disney. ‘Now fear the Lord and serve Him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods of your forefathers that they worshiped beyond the rivers and in Egypt and serve the Lord.’
“How many know these perverse gods that Disney is trying to push into our children’s faces. These are not new things. These are old spirits with new identities on it, trying to mess with our children. But as for me, in my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Christians are already planning to boycott the latest Toy Story movie called “Lightyear” because of an explicit lesbian kiss.
Musk makes his move
Gary Bauer of Campaign for Working Families said, “This is the biggest business story of the day, but it’s really not about stock prices or business. It’s about political power, and the woke left is having a total meltdown.”
Musk bought a 9% stake in Twitter and was initially set to join the board of directors, but he had bigger plans in mind. Yesterday morning, Musk announced that he’s offering to buy the company for $43 billion in order to take it private.
