Nigerian Muslims forced 10,000 rape victims to get abortions

A Reuters investigation found that the Nigerian military is adding insult to injury for women kidnapped and abused by radical Islamist insurgents.

The military somehow recovers the women and forces them to submit to abortions if they are pregnant.

Reuters concluded that “Since 2013, the Nigerian Army has run a secret, systematic and illegal abortion program in the country’s northeast, terminating at least 10,000 pregnancies among women and girls, many of whom had been kidnapped and raped by Islamist militants, according to dozens of witness accounts and documentation.”

In addition, Open Doors calculates that 4,650 Christians have been killed, and 3,500 were kidnapped last year

Violence against U.S. churches

Hostility against U.S. churches is on the rise, almost three times the incidents of violence in 2022 as compared to 2018.

The Family Research Council report found a total of 420 documented acts of hostility targeting 397 individual churches. There were 12 gun-related incidents, and 11 bomb threats.  Most were incidents of vandalism. This amounts to 1 in 20,000 churches per year reporting a gun-related incident.

This compares to 110 to 130 shootings on school campuses per year, which is a rate of about 1 in 1,000. 

Canadian COVID administrator dead at 35

Here’s another high profile sudden death — in Canada this time.  

Adam Exton was the Director of Parliamentary Affairs at Health Canada during the COVID-19 crisis, and led the roll out of the COVID shot for Canada.  He is dead at 35 years of age.  

Argentina beats France for World’s Cup Soccer

Argentina is the soccer world champion, beating out France in extra time in Sunday’s game.

That’s Argentina’s first World Cup victory since 1986. An estimated two million people rushed out into the streets of central Buenos Aires Sunday night to celebrate the win. One fan told NDTV, “Let’s be clear. Argentina is in trouble, economically, socially; it’s bad. So, this distraction is richly deserved.” 

Argentina is falling apart economically and socially

Indeed, Argentina’s inflation rate is about 93% year over year.  The value of the Argentina peso has dropped 94% against the dollar, over the last five years. Shockingly, 80% of their children are born out of wedlock — about the highest rate of all nations in the world, with the exception of Columbia.

Argentina was the first nation in Latin America to legalize same sex faux-marriage in 2010.  Argentina is 66% Catholic, 22% secular atheist, 9% Pentecostal, and 2% other Christian. 

Psalm 10:16 reminds us that “The LORD is king forever and ever; and the nations perish from His land.”

Peru’s president impeached

Peru’s newly elected president, Pedro Castillo, was leading the pink wave towards more redistribution of the wealth and a rewrite of the nation’s constitution.  

But, this has been stopped short by an impeachment vote from Peru’s Congress. Castillo will be replaced by Vice President Dina Boluarte, who ran under the Marxist banner of the Free Peru Party in 2021 

Court forces girls to run against boys

Last Friday, a three-judge panel of the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed a challenge to Connecticut’s policy of allowing transgender students to compete in girls’ high school sports. The court rejected arguments by four biological female runners who said they were unfairly forced to race against biologically male athletes, reports CBN.

In arguments before a federal judge in Connecticut in February 2021, Roger Brooks, a lawyer for the Alliance Defending Freedom, said Title IX guarantees girls “equal quality” of competition, which he said is denied by having to race boys who have inherent physiological advantages.

Brooks said the male transgender sprinters improperly won 15 championship races between 2017 and 2020 and cost girls the opportunity to advance to other races 85 times.

The Second U.S. Circuit Court is populated with seven Democrats and six Republicans.

Alliance Defending Freedom decried the ruled. Christiana Kiefer of ADF said, “Right now, 18 states have enacted laws that protect women and girls from having to compete against males, and polls show that a majority of Americans agree that the competition is no longer fair when males are permitted to compete in women’s sports.”  

ADF is considering an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. 


Stocks are down for the week.

The NASDAQ Composite Index is down 1,000 points, settling around 10,500 Monday. That’s the lowest mark on the index since November 8th.

Jan. 6 panel recommends 4 criminal charges for Trump over Capitol riot

Former President Donald Trump should face criminal charges for his actions in connection with last year’s January 6, 2021 events, according to the Democrat Party-dominated House Select Committee, reports The New York Post.

The charges recommended include: obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to make a false statement, and insurrection. The report concluded that “None of the events of January 6th would have happened without [Donald Trump].”

Churches cancelling Christmas Day services

And finally, only five days left until Christmas. More churches are cancelling worship this Sunday for the holiday— according to Lifeway Research.  Only 84% of churches are committed to holding worship services. That’s down from 89% in 2016.   

Denominationally, 95% of Lutherans, 91% of Methodists, 84% of Presbyterian/Reformed, 64% of non-denominational churches, 60% of Baptists, and 45% of Pentecostals are holding Christmas Eve services.

Hebrews 10:25 warns us not to “forsake the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
