Vicar of Baghdad: 'When I invited Isil to dinner they said, "Yes, we’ll come, but we’ll chop off your head."

By Saphora Smith
25 June 2016

For more than 10 years, Canon Andrew White presided over the only Anglican Church in Iraq, a role that led him to be known universally as the Vicar of Baghdad.

But his old parish of St George’s has become too dangerous, and today he leads a peripatetic life, spending time with his displaced congregation in Israel and Amman, Jordan.

He is, in effect, a vicar without a parish. Recently he was to be found in Britain conducting a private service for ‘Christians in Government’ at St Margaret’s church, Westminster. For the past 17 years White, 52, has suffered from multiple sclerosis, so he would normally sit to conduct a service...
‘We are dealing with an evil, evil group. You cannot negotiate [with Isil] at all.’ The trouble is Isil’s ‘corporate identity’, he says. ‘You always hope there will be individuals [within Isil] you can get through to.’ But with a collective it’s difficult. ‘I want to forgive them, and I really hope one day we’ll be able to work with them and not against them.’

GAFCON Conference 2018 to be held in Jerusalem

GAFCON Conference 2018
June 22, 2016
 
The Chairman and fellow Primates of the GAFCON Council are pleased to announce that the third GAFCON conference will be held in Jerusalem in 2018.

Jerusalem has a special place in the hearts of the GAFCON movement as it was the location of the first conference in 2008. Moreover, Jerusalem stands as a constant reminder of the birth of the Gospel and the movement’s determination to remain true to the teachings of our Lord and his Holy Word.

GAFCON was greatly blessed by both the initial conference and the second meeting in Nairobi in 2013. When Anglicans from across the Communion come together in unity it is a tremendous blessing, and we are excited to see the Church built up in the land where it was given its foundation.

Dates and further details will be announced in due course.

HS Condom Distribution INCREASES Teen Pregnancy and STD's; Obamacare’s $250 Million Bribery Scheme...more

Who Saw This Coming? HS Condom Distribution INCREASES Teen Pregnancy and STD's ...A study coming out of the University of Notre Dame indicates that high school condom distribution programs may increase the rates of teen pregnancy and STD's.

So all those people who say that they're pro-life but support anti-life politicians because they're for condom distribution programs which will lead to less teen pregnancy and less abortion might want to re-think that...

What really goes on at a school “gay straight alliance” club event  ...In Part I and Part II, as well as in our accompanying video, we covered a lot of it. This report completes the picture.

We were able to see first-hand what they’re really teaching the young students whom they attract to these clubs, and the aberrant adults who are involved. As we’ve often warned people, these activists are very serious when it comes to your children. They encourage kids to feel comfortable engaging in homosexual and transgender activity. They provide the kids with sexually-oriented literature and paraphernalia, and a heavy dose of destructive LGBT ideology...

NYPD members, de Blasio fund-raiser busted in corruption probe   Three high-ranking officers in the NYPD acted as “cops on call” for two deep-pocketed de Blasio donors — as long as their “elves” plied them with gifts and bankrolled a highflying lifestyle that included hookers, free hotels and expensive meals.

Deputy Chief Michael Harrington, Deputy Inspector James Grant and Sgt. David Villanueva were arrested Monday, the latest development in a far-reaching bribery scandal that has also snared longtime correction officers union leader Norman Seabrook.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who is coordinating several overlapping city, state and federal probes into NYPD top brass and several well-heeled businessmen, said the cops acted as a “private police force” in exchange for gifts, bribes and perks worth more than $100,000...

Horror and Hush-Up in Twin Falls, Idaho   Something wicked happened in Idaho's rural Magic Valley. The evil has been compounded by politicians, media and special interest groups doing their damnedest to suppress the story and quell a righteous citizen rebellion...

...Police and the local prosecutor's office grudgingly confirmed that an investigation had begun into the incident. The victim: A mentally disabled 5-year-old girl. The alleged perpetrators: Three boys, ages 7, 10 and 14, from Sudanese and Iraqi immigrant families (predominantly Muslim) who have been in the country for less than two years -- all but confirming that they are refugees...

Obama is gutting Medicare ...The president’s Medicare reforms make it harder for seniors to get joint replacements. His new payment rules shortchange doctors, discouraging them from accepting Medicare in the first place. New ER rules clobber seniors with bills for “observation care.” Under ObamaCare, hospitals get bonuses for spending less per senior, despite having higher death rates and infection rates.

Expect the Medicare Trustees’ annual report, due out Wednesday, to ignore these problems.

Obama’s latest assault is a 962-page regulation dictating how doctors treat patients. Precious minutes with your doctor are wasted completing mandatory reports for the federal government, and your ailment gets short shrift.

Physicians are glued to computer screens, following prompts, seldom making eye contact with patients. Renowned New York cardiologist Jeffrey Borer’s fed up: “I need to interact with my patients.”

“Doctors who want to provide individualized care” will have to “either opt out of Medicare or simply not comply,” explains Richard Amerling, past president of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons.

Obama’s rules are “far too complex and burdensome to be workable for most physicians,” warns John Halamka, a Harvard medical professor...

Obamacare’s $250 Million Bribery Scheme Shortly following last week’s revelation that Obamacare premiums will spike yet again in 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it would offer $22 million in grants to state insurance officials to enforce “compliance with Affordable Care Act key consumer protections.” The Obama administration will, in other words, bribe state regulators to impose price controls on insurers selling coverage through Obamacare exchanges. Where did CMS get the $22 million? From a multi-million dollar slush fund the federal government has quietly used to control state insurance departments over which it has no legal authority...

Veteran Removed from Air Force Ceremony for Mentioning God ...The speech concludes, “God bless our flag. God bless our troops. God bless America.”
 
In a video, viewers can watch Rodriguez giving this speech when four airmen grab him and forcibly escort him from the room while he continues to shout the words of the speech.
 
First Liberty Institute is defending Rodriguez and calling for the military to acknowledge that they violated his rights...

Pakistan To Give Nearly $3 Million To The ‘University Of Jihad’  ...A Pakistani provincial government has allocated the equivalent of $2,870,385 for an Islamic school known as the “University of Jihad,” which has produced some of the region’s worst terrorists...

Protesters at university with 97 percent women blast its ‘toxic rape culture’   If your son went to prison for rape, you as a parent are responsible for rape culture, or something.

That’s the muddled message peddled by protesters at St. Catherine’s University in St. Paul, Minn., a campus where 97 percent of undergraduates are women, the Star Tribune reports.

They blasted the school’s “toxic rape culture” at a Monday protest where they marched with signs including “Rape culture is here” and “We will not be silenced.”...

PP Blames the Orlando Shootings On “imperialist homophobia” and “toxic masculinity"...more

Russell Moore: Can we still weep together after Orlando? ...Let’s call our congregations to pray together. Let’s realize that, in this case, our gay and lesbian neighbors are likely quite scared. Who wouldn’t be? Demonstrate the sacrificial love of Jesus to them. We don’t have to agree on the meaning of marriage and sexuality to love one another and to see the murderous sin of terrorism. Let’s also pray for our leaders who have challenging decisions to make in the midst of crisis. Let’s mobilize our congregations and others to give blood for the victims. Let’s call for governing authorities to do their primary duty of keeping its people safe from evildoers...

Planned Parenthood Blames the Orlando Shootings On “imperialist homophobia” and “toxic masculinity"  In a second tweet, the abortion business wrote, “Toxic masculinity enables rapists and rape culture, violent heterosexism and attacks on reproductive freedom.”...

Homeland Security Instructed To Combat Violent Extremism With Political Correctness   ...In addition to combatting violent extremism by reaching out to “gender diverse” Americans and teaching youth “appropriate online etiquette,” the report recommends that the DHS “avoid stigmatizing specific communities.”

The report urges DHS officials to “Reject religiously-charged terminology and problematic positioning by using plain meaning American English.”...

Senate Dems Call For Passage of Useless Gun Control Measures led by NY Sen. Schumer  ...Senate Democrats are calling for the immediate passage of the gun control proposal that was defeated last year.

Sen. Chuck Schumer and three other anti-Second Amendment senators want to pass a bill that would prevent people on "terror watch lists" and "suspected terrorists" from purchasing firearms.

The Orlando shooter was not on any of these lists but the Democrats never miss an opportunity to take advantage of a crisis. Reuters doesn't bother to mention that the Orlando shooter was not on any list....

Philippine officials confirm Canadian hostage was beheaded by Islamic terrorist group Abu Sayyaf   ...The hostage, Robert Hall, was abducted from a marina last September along with another Canadian, a Norwegian and a Filipino. The other Canadian, former mining executive John Ridsdel, was beheaded in April.

Presidential spokesman Herminio Coloma condemned "the brutal and senseless murder" of Hall. He had been held by the Abu Sayyaf in the jungles of southern Sulu province for nine months.

"This latest heinous crime serves to strengthen our government's resolve to put an end to this reign of terror and banditry," he said in a statement...

Chicago’s justice system is so overworked that some inmates spend 100's of days waiting for a trial ...The wait for a case to reach conviction can be so long that many of the jail’s inmates serve more time in Cook County than they are eventually sentenced to spend in prison, what’s known as “dead days.” For instance, if an inmate is convicted to 100 days in state prison, and spends 300 days in Cook County waiting for their case to reach conviction, they will have served 200 dead days...

The Facebook Story You Didn’t Hear
...In an essay in the Regent University Law Review, Roger Kiska, an attorney who defends freedom of speech and expression in Europe, Canada, and the United States, summarized the difficulties of pinning down a definition for “hate speech” in the EU’s own words. He pointed out that a recent factsheet from the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) said that “there is no universally accepted definition of . . . ‘hate speech.’” It gets worse; a previous fact sheet said that hate speech is often hard to identify because “it can . . . be concealed in statements which at a first glance may seem to be rational or normal.”.

In other words, just because it isn’t hateful doesn’t mean it’s not hate speech. Think about that for a while.
 
But maybe you’re not convinced. Maybe you’re thinking: “That’s in Europe! Here in America Facebook knows it can’t get away with such ridiculous policies that suppress freedom of speech.”
 
In that case, meet Carlos Flores. You haven’t heard his story in the news, because he’s Exhibit A in Facebook’s soft launch of viewpoint discrimination and suppression of free speech in America...

Italian Catholics told to ‘pray in silence’ to avoid upsetting African migrants   ...Visitors to the church of St. Anthony in Ventimiglia, Italy, were recently told to “pray in silence” to avoid upsetting African migrants being housed in the building.

Members of Caritas, a Catholic charity that helps facilitate mass migration to Europe, have asked parishioners not to recite the rosary aloud, Italian wire service Agenzia Nazionale Stampa Associata reported Saturday. A priest eventually took women who complained to another place of worship, Breitbart News reported.

Italy, like other European nations, has struggled to absorb waves of migrants from the Middle East and North Africa due to Syria’s ongoing civil war and the collapse of Libya. The International Organization for Migration puts the number of migrants who arrived in Europe in 2016 at 206,000. Italy has reportedly taken in 48,000 thousand of those migrants...

In Socialist Venezuela, Dumpsters Are Literally The New Grocery Stores   Things have gotten so desperate in Venezuela that people have resorted to picking food out of the trash so they do not starve to death.

To deal with increasing shortages of various goods, including food and drinks, “I come here looking for food because if I didn’t, I’d starve to death,” former bakery employee Julio Noguera told  the Associated Press while frantically searching for some food amid heaped trash...

Straight white males banned from university lecture union's 'equality conferences' 
The University and College Union in England is banning straight white males from its equality conferences in order to create "safe spaces" for members.

That the union is oblivious to its unequal policy for attending an equality conference is uproariously funny.  But it gets better...
