Pakistani officials refusing to prosecute Muslims for death by torture

With suspects in a homicide case pressuring the victim’s relatives to make false statements, police in Lahore, Pakistan are declining to arrest them in the case of a Catholic man tortured to death by his Muslim employers, reports The Christian Post.

Sonia Shahid, widow of 35-year-old Masih Shahid and mother to their six children, said her husband’s employer tortured him on May 8, resulting in his death 10 days later. The Muslim employer wrongly suspected he had stolen goats from a farm in the Sheikhupura District located in the Punjab Province.

Proverbs 24:1-2 says, “Do not envy the wicked, do not desire their company; for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble.”

According to Open Doors, Pakistan is the seventh most dangerous country worldwide for Christians to live.

House Speaker Johnson predicts Trump victory

Appearing on “Fox and Friends,” House Speaker Mike Johnson, Republican from Louisiana, reacted to the Trump guilty verdict in the hush money trial.

JOHNSON: “What happened there was outrageous and the American people see it. This is a purely political exercise, not a legal one. Everybody knows that; they know intuitively that it’s wrong. The people are outraged.

“Because President Trump is crushing Joe Biden in the polls, they see the Democrat Party and the Left so desperate to stop him that they’ll risk the destruction of our entire legal system to do it. And that is not hyperbole. That’s what’s going on here.

“We broke records on our fundraising platforms last night. We even set up a new website, go to Stand with him and make sure the right verdict is rendered November 5th. That’s the American people’s verdict.”

House Speaker Johnson made a bold prediction.

JOHNSON: “I’m going to tell you what will happen. I predict this will increase turnout on our side, that he will win decisively. He will become the next president. He was already, as I said, crushing Joe Biden in the polls.

“I think, as this plays out, and people get more and more frustrated about it, I think it will help us and that huge enthusiasm gap, that already existed between the Trump and Biden campaigns, will be even wider.

“People now see Donald Trump as a symbol of something. He’s more than just an individual. He’s a symbol of fighting back against this government corruption, the deep state, the bureaucracy, and all the rest. We need his leadership in the White House, now more than ever.”

Mark Levin: Trump attorneys should appeal to Supreme Court

Appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox show, radio talk show host Mark Levin summarized his take on the Trump guilty verdict.

LEVIN: “I’ll say this: no crime, no jurisdiction, no due process, conflicted judge, [George] Soros prosecutor, Manhattan jury.”

Levin urged Trump’s attorneys to appeal the guilty verdict to the U.S. Supreme Court.

LEVIN: “So, what they need to do now, in my view, is to go up the appellate chain in New York. We need to stop whining about how long that’s going to take. Seek an emergency trial to get to the Supreme Court. People say, ‘Well, they’re not going to take it.’

“You know, what if George Patton had said, ‘I don’t think I can get to the Battle of the Bulge in time,’  we would have lost World War II.

“I am sick and tired of these legal defeatists. We need to stop whining, stop complaining. We know what we’re up against. We gotta fight these people with our smarts. We have to take some risks.

“We need to look at Bush v. Gore. Why did the Supreme Court take that case from the Florida Supreme Court? We need to give the Supreme Court the opportunity to fix this.

“Why? We cannot have local acting judges, [George] Soros District Attorney’s Office, 15,000 District Attorneys’ offices, God knows how many state judges — destroying our federal election system, influencing how we elect the president of the United States.

“And if we have a pathway to bring it to the Supreme Court, even though it’s rarely used, we use it. We use every legal quiver that we possibly can muster, rather than sitting around and saying, ‘Well, it’ll take three months.’ Fine! So far, the judicial system, so far, has let down the American people. The Supreme Court needs to step up. This is a federal matter, a presidential matter, and it’s gonna get worse before it gets better.”

Golf champion Grayson Murray, 30, committed suicide

The parents of PGA champion Grayson Murray, who died mysteriously at the age of 30, have now revealed that he died by suicide.

In a statement through the PGA Tour website, Eric and Terry Murray said, “We have spent the last 24 hours trying to come to terms with the fact that our son is gone. It’s surreal that we not only have to admit it to ourselves, but that we also have to acknowledge it to the world. It’s a nightmare.

“Life wasn’t always easy for Grayson, and although he took his own life, we know he rests peacefully now.

“Please honor Grayson by being kind to one another. If that becomes his legacy, we could ask for nothing else.”

Grayson had struggled with alcoholism, anxiety, and depression. He said this to a reporter.

GRAYSON MURRAY: “If my game is a 9 out of 10, my mental game was a 1 out of 10 for my whole career really. That’s what’s kept me from being the player that I could have been.”

After winning the Sony Open in Honolulu, Hawaii in January 2024 by sinking a 40-foot birdie putt in a playoff, Murray said he became sober in May 2023.

In front of a live national TV audience, he credited Jesus for his success, reported CBN.

REPORTER: “How important is the work that you’ve done off the golf course battling alcoholism, mental struggles? How important was that for you to be in the right frame of mind today?”

MURRAY: “It’s everything, you know. Jesus Christ is first and foremost. Without Him, none of this would be possible. He’s just given me a platform to write a new story, write my own story. My hope is everyone there at home watching can get a little inspiration from me. If I just help one person, that’s all it takes. Jesus Christ changed my life.”

Tragically, in a moment of sadness, his mental anguish trumped his hope in Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 says, “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen, but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”
