    More than 100 killed in Burkina Faso Africa

    This past Saturday more than 100 people were killed in an attack by Muslim extremists in northern Burkina Faso Africa reports International Christian Concern

    The violence took place in the Seytanga district near the border with Niger The exact death toll is unknown Some sources say it could be as high as 165 The group responsible for the attack is still unknown but is likely the Muslim terrorists from the Islamic State or al-Qaeda who have been conducting attacks in the area

    The Christians of Burkina Faso echo the words of David from Psalm 1093 They encircle me with words of hate and attack me without cause

    Concerns about the rising insecurity in Burkina have led to many protests and the January military coup which replaced President Rock Kabore with Paul-Henri Damiba

    Burkina Faso Africa is the 32nd most dangerous nation in the world for Christians

    Bidens tax relief adds up to 2430 for three months

    President Joe Biden recently called on Congress to pass legislation suspending the federal tax on gasoline for July through September to give Americans a little extra breathing room

    But this wont help much at all

    Cornwall Alliance reports that the average driver drives1125 miles per month and the average car getsabout 25 miles per gallon So the average driver uses about 45 gallons per month The federal gas tax is 18 cents per gallon Multiply that by 45 and you get 810 saved or 2430 for the three months

    If President Biden focused on allowing America to be energy independent once again that would help drop the price of gas back down in the 300gallon range

    Navys bizarre transgender video about pronouns gets blasted

    A bisexualtransgender-themed video from the US Navy that champions the usage of correct pronouns and the importance of gender identity is getting soundly ridiculed reports The Blaze

    The nearly four-minute video posted in late May on the Defense Visual Information Distribution Service website features Conchy Vasquez and Jony Rozon who serve as engineers at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center

    The clip is listed as an Official US Navy Video and uses LBGTQ and Pride tags

    Rozon who wore a bright rainbow shirt asked this question of Vasquez

    ROZON What would I do if I misgender someone

    VASQUEZ You correct yourself and move on or you accept that correction and move on

    Then Jony Rozon asked this earth-shaking question

    ROSON What would I do if I want to know someones gender identity or pronouns

    VASQUEZ The most important thing is do not pressure anybody into giving you their pronouns Some people may be going through the process of discovery and they are not ready yet to tell you what their pronouns are And thats okay

    Isaiah 520 comes to mind Woe to those who call evil good and good evil

    The majority of people reacting to this absurd military video about using the so-called proper pronouns are ridiculing the clip

    One said When the bullets fly and the bombs start hitting pronouns wont matter Another commenter offered this sobering thought Youre gonna lose the next war

    Thats about a 75 loss in value since November 2021

    Mortgage interest rate soared to 6

    The average for a 30-year mortgage interest rate has burgeoned to 6

    The median-priced house in the US has increased from 289000 to 430000 between January 2020 and June 2022That means average house payments including insurance and taxation will have over doubled over that period of time based on increased interest rates and inflation The cost has soared from 1435 to 3112

    Now that mortgage payment would equate to almost 50 of the median household income for Americans - which is estimated at 75500

    Steven Craig the CHEC Executive Director told The Worldview that new homeschoolers are pulling away from the misguided progressive agenda and looking for Christian values in education

    CRAIG There are many factors that are causing families to take another look at homeschooling right now Obviously COVID and the mask mandates was a huge one over 2020 and 21 But added to that just increasing number of social worldview pressures that families are experiencing that their children are experiencing with Critical Race Theory social justice LGBTQ stuff and more

    It just seems like those pressures continue to mount causing families especially Christian families to look for a better way to provide an education to their children that will align with their families worldview

    Utah high school conservative students seek equal treatment

    Last Wednesday Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys sent a letter to inform officials at a West Jordan Utah high school that they unlawfully discriminated against a group of conservative students

    The letter sent on behalf of the Turning Point USA chapter at Copper Hills High School and student Matthew Parkinson a member of the group explains how school officials censored the groups speech and denied them the same rights that the school provides to other student groups in violation of the First Amendment and the Equal Access Act

    ADF Legal Counsel Mathew Hoffmann said Students of any political religious or ideological persuasion should be able to freely and peacefully speak with their fellow students about their views

    Despite the fact that the chapter received the schools pre-approval to set up a table at lunch to share its conservative views with other students school officials abruptly shut down the table and took down their posters

    Turning Point USA has 1000 student-led chapters at high schools and colleges throughout America

    Micah 68 asks What does the Lord require of you To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God

    The hypocrisy of COVID-infected Tony Fauci

    On Fox News Tucker Carlson called out COVID-infected Dr Anthony Fauci for his handling of the pandemic and critiqued his past comments on the virus

    CARLSON As Dr Fauci told us there were two things we needed to know about this pandemic of the unvaccinated and the COVID shot that could fix it First was the vaccine absolutely prevents COVID infection

    FAUCI When people are vaccinated they can feel safe that they are not going to get infected

    CARLSON Simple So take the shot and youre never getting COVID Done Well get it

    The second thing that Dr Fauci told us was that Pfizer had made something far more impressive than your own body Pfizer was smarter than nature Natural immunity was a joke compared to the COVID vaccine

    FAUCI It is as weve said a pandemic and an outbreak of the unvaccinated

    CARLSON That was Dr Faucis message It still is his message despite the fact that yesterday Dr Fauci announced that he himself has been infected with the Coronavirus Thats right Dr Fauci is COVID positive despite double-masking outside despite skipping Christmas despite his strict regimen of celibacy and no handshaking despite four separate COVID vaccine shots Dr Fauci got sick anyway

    Carlson wondered what Faucis positive COVID status reveals about all of the propaganda he has been spewing since the beginning of the pandemic

    CARLSON Now this seems like an important moment What does it mean It means we need more vaccines Fauci delivered that message today without flinching

    FAUCI This virus is changing and we need to keep up with it In order to do that weve got to do better with new vaccine platforms such as nanoparticle vaccines We cannot proceed with that unless we get additional funding Importantly we need to both prevent infection and transmission

    CARLSON Okay so testifying on the need for vaccines from isolation having been infected after getting four of them quote we need to both prevent infection and transmission

    But wait a second said skeptics Werent the first four vaccine shots supposed to prevent infection and transmission Isnt that why you fired all those nurses and pilots and Navy SEALs Shouldnt you acknowledge the lie you told for years and apologize to them give them back their jobs with damages and grovel before them begging for forgiveness before you move on to yet another mandatory v...

    Qasir and Amoon Ayub were convicted of so-called blasphemy and sentenced to death by a lower court in December 2018 Their appeal was heard by the Lahore High Court between February 28 and March 4 The verdict of death was announced on June 8

    Blasphemy against Islam includes the mocking or vilifying of attributes of Islam or denying any of the fundamental beliefs of Islam For example a Christian would be guilty of blasphemy against Islam if he dared to claim that the Quran was not divinely revealed or that Muhammed was not a legitimate prophet from God Islam prescribes death as the fitting punishment

    But in Exodus 202-3 God declared I am the Lord your God who brought you out of Egypt out of the land of slavery You shall have no other gods before Me
