Muslim Ugandan father kills son for his Christian faith
Tragically, Tabiruka Tefiiro, a 20-year-old man in Uganda who had converted from Islam to Christianity in 2019, was tied up and murdered by his own Muslim father on Sunday after he refused to forsake his faith in Christ, reports Morning Star News.
Before his untimely death in the Kibuku district, his aunt recalled that Tefiiro told his father, “I am mature enough to join any religion that I feel like because I am above 18 years old. I want to confirm that I am saved by the grace of God. I can’t renounce my Christian faith now or in the future.”
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.”
Fox News Pentagon reporter: “Couldn’t fact check [Biden] fast enough”
FOX News Pentagon correspondent Jennifer Griffin quipped Friday that President Biden’s speech on the Kabul Airlift was so full of “misrepresentations” that she “couldn’t fact-check it fast enough,” reports RealClearPolitics.com.
GRIFFIN: “I’m having a hard time digesting what we heard because I couldn’t fact check it fast enough, in real time, because there were so many misrepresentations of what is happening on the ground. To hear the President talk about still having an over-the-horizon capability — to see what is happening with the remnants of al Qaeda, ISIS, the Corizon Group, and even the Taliban — that would have required partners on the ground.
“What we’ve seen in recent days is that those partners on the ground have been abandoned. They’re in hiding, they’re fearing for their lives. They fled the country. We don’t have partners. We don’t have eyes and ears. The whole reason that US military cannot leave the airport to go and rescue any Americans who are out in Kabul, when British and French special forces can do so, is that they don’t have any partners left. So I don’t see how you can say that with a straight face that they’re going to be over the horizon capabilities to see the terror threat in Afghanistan when this is all said and done.
“We heard from international leaders around the world that NATO Allies were gobsmacked at the sudden announcement and withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.”
Graham: Impeach Biden if he leaves Americans or Afghan allies behind
Republican Senate Judiciary Committee member Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told Fox News on Friday that if President Joe Biden leaves behind any American or Afghani ally in Afghanistan, then he should be impeached.
GRAHAM: “We’re duty-bound to get every American citizen out. We’re honor-bound to get those Afghans who fought along our side out. If we leave any Americans behind, if we leave thousands of those Afghans who fought bravely along our side behind, Joe Biden deserves to be impeached for a high crime and misdemeanor of dereliction of duty.
“Joe Biden has been a wrecking ball regarding foreign policy, national security for 40 years. He was told by our military we need a residual force on the ground.
“Any military commander would be court martialed for leaving our people behind. And I think the Commander-in-Chief owes it to every American citizen and owes it to the Afghans, who fought along our side, to get them out because if we leave them behind, they’re going to get slaughtered.”
French rebel as grocery stores begin demanding COVID passport
Some French supermarkets are now requiring their customers to show a COVID pass before entering, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
The measure is sparking much controversy as a video showing police blocking the entrance of a supermarket to a group of people has immerged on Twitter.
Over the past few weeks, France has extended COVID pass requirements to nearly all basic venues including bars, cafés, restaurants, cinemas, trains, stadiums, and gyms. Supermarkets are the latest addition to this list.
TX girls getting mastectomies at 13, and kids getting puberty blockers at 8
She said that “the Texas Dept of Family and Protective Services’ determination in a letter to the governor does not address mastectomies (which have been done on girls as young as 13), puberty blockers (given to children as young as 8 years old), chemical castration, or cross-sex hormones — because the governor’s letter did not ask about these.”
In addition, Newman added, “We need a law — not a letter. Governor Abbott has said we don’t have the votes for legislation. That’s not true. The Senate has passed bills. GOP Rep. Matt Krause has said he has the votes in the House. The truth is that the governor doesn’t want a law.” Call Governor Abbott at (512) 463-1782 and ask for a law protecting minors. That’s (512) 463-1782.
Genesis 1:27 says, “So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.”
