Shock: Pakistani Leader Called for Deaths for Pakistani Supreme Court Justices
A senior leader of the Tehreek-e-Labaik Party in Pakistan has called for the deaths of the Supreme Court justices who acquitted Asia Bibi, the Christian woman who had been falsely accused of blasphemy, reports International Christian Concern.
The World View spoke to David Curry, President of Open Doors USA, about the positive precedent set by Asia’s acquittal.
“Well, I think the positive precedent is that the Supreme Court of Pakistan used great law. They had, in the ruling, articulated exactly what the flaws of this case were and really the inherent flaws of the blasphemy law. Those might be that it’s a vigilante justice that empowers accusation without proof and that it gives a sense to a mob rule within Pakistan.”
Curry said Pakistani Christians are asking believers around the world to pray for peace in their country.
“I think they would ask us to be people who are praying for peace in society, for there to be safe places at churches. People are going to be going to church. They are going to be going to worship. Christians are people who stand out in that Islamic society. Pray for their safety.”
Psalm 9:9-10 says, “The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know Your name put their trust in You, for You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.”

Canadian Tax Dollars Support Abortion Giant
The government of Canada spent tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars to support Planned Parenthood-affiliated organizations through the Canada Summer Jobs program this year, reports LifeSiteNews.

Australian Prime Minister: Men Are Men; Women Are Women
Australia’s Liberal Party Prime Minister Scott Morrison spoke out against having non-binary gender options on public documents this week as the Labor Party pushes for people pretending to be the opposite gender to identify as such on identification documents.

40% of U.S. Births Outside of God-Ordained Wedlock
So-called developing nations are now casting off norms of marriage.
Forty percent of births in the U.S. occur outside of marriage, up from 10 percent in 1970, according to a new report from the United Nations.
That percentage is even higher in the European Union. The report found births in the U.S. and European Union were primarily to unmarried couples living in sin as opposed to single mothers.
