Kentucky Christian-owned bakery refuses to close

A Christian-owned bakery and restaurant in Kentucky is fighting to stay open despite Democratic Governor Andy Beshear’s mandate to shut down all indoor dining.

Richard and Tami Hayhoe are staying open despite losing their food permit, and recently losing an appeal to the Kentucky Supreme Court.  They are taking their case to the federal courts now.

The Hayhoes said they moved to the United States from Canada for freedom and opportunities, and they are committed to the fight against what they call “unconstitutional measures” to take away their business.

HAYHOE: “We want to stay open. We want to stay open for our community. We want to stay open for our guests. We want to stay open for our staff. We want them to have a Christmas. They are working hard. It’s not the government’s job to support these people. We support one another.

“You know, I’d just like to remind and encourage small business owners and their employees that we are the local strength of America and the decisions that we make now will direct the future of our staff, our communities and our families.  Let’s stand together against the arbitrary overreach by these rulers that are telling us that they are doing this for our safety.”

N Korea pressures S Korea to end helium balloon Bible launches

South Korea is cracking down on the spread of the Gospel into North Korea.

Voice of the Martyrs director Eric Foley is facing charges for launching balloons carrying Bibles into North Korea from the South Korean border.

The organization has been conducting these launches for 15 years. This move on the part of the South Korean government comes after North Korea threatened to end a no-hostility military pact, if South Korea further allows the distribution of Bibles into the Hermit Kingdom.

John 15:20 says, “Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.  But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.”

Cuban Communists destroy second church

A second church has been demolished in Santiago de Cuba as reported by Voice of the Martyrs. Authorities demolished the Assembly of God church building, along with the pastor’s house.

In a video posted at, Pastor Alain Toledano said the church has been persecuted since its inception in 1999. Since that time, the pastor said the government has robbed them of their livelihoods, their property, their freedom, their families, and their church.

The church has been looted twice, and demolished three times (2007, 2016, and 2020). The pastor’s house was robbed many times.

The pastor’s family has been evicted and thrown out on to the street. The pastor’s wife and daughters were beaten and otherwise mistreated.

In fact, the pastor himself is now facing charges and potential imprisonment for what he says is “preaching the Gospel so that people can accept Christ and worship God.”

Nigerian Muslims killed 110 innocent civilians

British College apologizes for penalizing pro-life student

Freedom of speech got a new lease in Britain.

The Christian Institute reports that the university is reassessing how they might “approach such cases differently in the future.” The case was handled by Alliance Defending Freedom.

Court upholds Tennessee ban on gender/race/disability abortions

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a Tennessee law which would ban abortions requested on the grounds of Down syndrome, gender, or race.

In response to the ruling, Tennessee Republican Governor Bill Lee  tweeted that “Every life is precious and every child has inherent human dignity. Our law prohibits abortion based on the race, gender, or diagnosis of Down syndrome of the child and the court’s decision will save lives. Protecting our most vulnerable Tennesseans is worth the fight.”

Proverbs 23 reminds us:

“Do not overwork to be rich;

Because of your own understanding, cease!

Will you set your eyes on that which is not?

For riches certainly make themselves wings;

They fly away like an eagle toward heaven.”
