Nigerian Bishops Want President Buhari to Resign

Nigerian, African bishops called for the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, to step down after Muslim Fulani herdsmen stormed a Catholic church in the central Benue state on April 25th, killing 19 people, including two priests, reports the World Watch Monitor.

After Nigeria’s House of Representatives summoned Buhari over the killings, the assembly also passed a vote of no confidence in the country’s service chiefs for the armed forces and all the security advisers to the president.

British Union Workers Honor Stalin

Protesters marked International Workers’ Day with a rally in London‘s Trafalgar Square yesterday. Organized by United Voices of the World and the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain, some marchers actually held up pictures of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, reports The Daily Mail.

Stalin, who killed between 20 and 60 million of his own people, allegedly declared: “Death is the solution to all problems. No man — no problem.”

Either the protesters are inexcusably ignorant or they are advocating more mass murder.

40 Mueller Questions for Trump Leaked

On Monday, The New York Times published around four dozen questions compiled by Trump’s lawyers during negotiations with Mueller’s investigators earlier this year over the prospect of a presidential interview, reports the Associated Press.

Mueller is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election, whether Trump’s campaign was involved and if the president obstructed justice after the campaign.

President Trump says it’s “disgraceful” that a list of proposed questions was “leaked” to the news media.

Mayor blocks pregnancy care center

Women’s Care Pregnancy Center has been blocked from opening next to a proposed abortion mill by South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, reports Life News.  

The City Council had approved the rezoning measure last week in a narrow 5-4 vote so it’s unknown whether they have the political will to override the mayor’s veto which he explained in his letter which we have linked in our transcript at

In the meantime, the abortion mill is clearly threatened by good, old-fashioned American competition, as it will be less successful in persuading pregnant women to kill their unborn babies.

Catholic Female Students Warned to Dress Modestly for Prom

Female students at Divine Child Catholic High School in Dearborn, Michigan have been forewarned in writing not to wear revealing dresses to the prom which would show too much skin, reports WJBK.

In fact, if they arrive at the prom dressed immodestly, the faculty will require them to wear a “modesty poncho” over their dress if they choose to stay.

The “modesty poncho” was the brainchild of theology teacher Mary Pat O’Malley in order to give the girls enough time to get an appropriate dress.

“We are trying focus on the inner beauty and not draw attention to something that doesn’t really need to have attention drawn to it. It was really intended as a deterrent and a light hearted one at that.”

One parent who objected anonymously claimed, “It’s a method of shaming.”

1 Timothy 2:9 says, “I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety.”

New Survey Reveals Extent of Loneliness

Cigna, a global health service company, released results from a national survey of 20,000 American adults (ages 18 years and older) exploring the impact of loneliness.

Nearly half of Americans report sometimes or always feeling alone (46 percent).

One in four Americans (27 percent) rarely or never feel as though there are people who really understand them. 

And Generation Z (adults ages 18-22) is the loneliest generation and claims to be in worse health than older generations. 

Cigna determined that the keys to lowering loneliness is getting the right balance of sleep, work, socializing with friends, family, and “me time”.

Here at The World View, we would add getting right with God and getting plugged into church.

Archeological Dig Affirms Ancient Israel

And finally, a new archaeological discovery is helping to confirm the biblical record that presents King David as an historical figure in ancient Israel, reports

Up until now, archaeologists were unable to find “fortifications, public works or signs of statehood” to give evidence of civilization dating back to the time when David is supposed to have ruled.

Professor Avraham Faust, director of the archaeological dig, announced the “new discovery at Tel ‘Eton, located in the Judean Shephelah to the east of the Hebron hills” which has been identified as the biblical city of Eglon, a Canaanite city which fought against Israel.

The archeological discovery confirms the Scripture from 2 Timothy 3:16 which says, “All Scripture is God-breathed.”

Senator Rubio Disagrees with Trump over Tax Reform Impact

Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, a former presidential contender, told the Economist Magazine there is “no evidence whatsoever” the law significantly helped American workers, reports Reuters.

While many think that corporations are going to take the money they’re saving and reinvest it in American workers, Rubio insists that “they bought back shares, a few gave out bonuses; there’s no evidence whatsoever that the money’s been massively poured back into the American worker.”

Political observers believe his interview may undercut the Republican Party’s message about the recent tax overhaul ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
