Update: Indian AK-toting, Muslim ass-kicking girl a hero
Brave Rukhsana becomes a star for killing LeT terrorist
Shahdhara Sharief (Rajouri), Sep 29 : Her immensely brave act has turned young Rukhsana Kausar into a heroine and people now see her as a fighter against the ‘zulm’ or atrocities of militants. She had taken on a group of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists who barged into her house late Sunday night, snatched an AK-47 from one intruder and shot him dead. Read the rest of this entry »

Naturally, Tiza can’t let a lawsuit go without countersuit; they allege that the ACLU interfered with contracts, employment, etc. I don’t see that the ACLU interfered with anything. What I think happened is that, given more information, prospective employees chose not to pursue employment with a questionable operation. They may also have withdrawn because they found another job. I doubt that the mere allegations as reported in the paper are sufficient to support interference. It wasn’t that long ago that people were alleging interference with contracts because Marian Gaborik bought a house in Vancouver.
They’re not alleging that educators under contract decided not to actually do the job; they’re alleging that people in the process bowed out and that threats were made as a result of the ACLU. Proximate cause anyone? Read the rest of this entry »

I was pleased to learn that both suspects have pleaded guilty to aiding terrorists; now if we only knew who funded them and recruited them. It’s like picking off the drug dealers and not knowing who they work for.
Second Suspect pleads guilty to aiding Somali terrorists
Second terrorism suspect pleaded guilty today in Minneapolis.
Salah Osman Ahmed
Salah Osman Ahmed, 26, pleaded guilty in federal court today to providing material support to terrorists, according to his attorney.
Ahmed, a part-time security guard from Brooklyn Park, is accused of traveling to Somalia in December 2007, allegedly to train with al-Shabaab, an Islamic militant group that federal officials say has links to al-Qaida. Read the rest of this entry »

I have a problem with this judge’s ruling; when the country is jittery and people go out of their way to make others nervous, which is what happened here, the police have an obligation to investigate. The only way to investigate without disrupting the civil aviation schedule in its entirety was to remove the men from the plane. Under the principle in which it’s illegal to shout “Fire” in a crowded theatre, it should also be illegal to take actions you know are going to scare others.
Additionally, threatening to add those who complained about the imams to the airlines employees to their lawsuit was a cheap ploy to intimidate the country at large. At least that part was quashed. Please join me in praying that the suit is dismissed.
Imams’ suit cleared for trial
“Flying imams” claim their rights were violated.

In a strongly worded ruling, a federal judge on Friday cleared the way for a lawsuit by six Muslim men who claim they were falsely arrested on a US Airways jet in Minneapolis three years ago to move forward.
“The right not to be arrested in the absence of probable cause is clearly established and, based on the allegations … no reasonable officer could have believed that the arrest of the Plaintiffs was proper,” U.S. District Judge Ann Montgomery ruled Friday. Read the rest of this entry »

Fed to the Lions !!
From the Spectator:
The Equality Bill currently going through Parliament is the latest and potentially most oppressive attempt to impose politically acceptable attitudes and drive out any that fall foul of these criteria. Since the attitudes being imposed constitute an ideological agenda to destroy Britain’s foundational ethical principles and replace them by a nihilistic values and lifestyle free-for-all, they represent a direct onslaught on the Judeo-Christian morality underpinning British society.
The most neuralgic of these issues is gay rights. This is because the tolerance of homosexuality that a liberal society should properly show has long been hijacked by an agenda which aims at destroying the very idea of normative sexuality altogether – and does so by smearing it as prejudice. The true liberal position, that it is right and just to tolerate behaviour that deviates from the norm as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else, is deemed to be rank prejudice on the grounds that homosexuality is not ‘deviancy’ but normal. ‘Normality’ is thus rendered incoherent and absurd and accordingly destroyed altogether. The agenda is therefore not liberal tolerance but illiberal coercion against mainstream moral values, on the basis that the very idea of having normative moral principles at all is an expression of bigotry. So anyone who speaks out against gay rights is immediately vilified as a ‘homophobe’ and treated as a social and professional pariah. Read the rest of this entry »

Soon to retire Bishop of Lancaster Patrick O’Donoghue issues landmark document on the English Church, the Catholic Herald reported today.
The Church in England and Wales is losing its Catholic identity, a senior bishop said this week.

, a movement of Evangelical religious and political rallies held in cities across the US and abroad to draw attention to moral issues and to offer prayer and fasting.
WASHINGTON — Tens of thousands of evangelical Christians converged on the National Mall here Saturday to highlight moral issues before the fall presidential election with a day of fasting, prayer and music.
Organizers of TheCall DC said 70,000 people turned out for the event, though that number could not be confirmed independently by the National Park Service. Read the rest of this entry »

Traditional Anglicans await ruling from Holy See
Traditionalist Anglicans applying for communion with Rome, rumor has it, may be receiving an answer after Lambeth 2008.
(One wonders if the Spouse’s Conference is now officially co-ed too…)
Personally, I prayerfully hope so.
Say a Rosary to help effect the co-ordination of the return home of those who are so clearly ready.

There are myriads of arguments that successfully disprove Darwinian Evolution. There are just too many holes in the theory and it does not stand up under intense examination.
It does not stand up under any examination.
One of the basic assertions is that life originated in the water and proceeded onto land via a walking fish that mutated to walk and harvest oxygen from air instead of water. Just bringing up a theory like that draws suspicion.
Under normal atmospheric condition the air is made up of roughly 21% oxygen by volume and 0.03% carbon dioxide by volume. Read the rest of this entry »

The Islamo Fascism Awareness Week II got under way yesterday at universities across the nation in what amounted to a two front offensive against the unholy alliance between radical and pro-jihad groups. By focusing on a Declaration Against Genocide, IFA Week speakers encouraged students to repudiate the genocidal threats against America and Israel issued by terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah, as well as their rogue-state sponsors in Iran. At the same time, they encouraged campus groups to condemn Islamic terror and to spotlight those groups — particularly the Muslim Student Association, a group with chapters on more than 600 campuses nationwide – which have pointedly refused to do so.
Robert Spencer, one of the IFAW Week’s key speakers, noted that the campaign provides a perspective seldom-heard in today’s academic world: “Islamo Fascism Awareness Week gives college students an opportunity to hear an alternate view to the leftist propaganda that passes for academic discourse on all too many campuses these days. With the Middle East Studies Association appearing completely uninterested in allowing for viewpoints that go against the dominant mainstream, Islamo Fascism Awareness Week provides a small bit of equal time. What’s more, this time around, with our call to denounce the genocidal statements of Ahmadinejad, Hassan Nasrallah, and others, we are providing a platform for moderate Muslims and others who have the courage to speak out against the barbarity and madness — a platform they will most likely not otherwise find on their campuses.” Read the rest of this entry »

Our Lady of the Atonement Catholic Church, Anglican Use, San Antonio, Texas
Creedal Christian noticed this:
There’s an incredible advertisement in the April 2008 edition of Episcopal Life. It’s on the bottom right-hand side of page 8. Here’s what it says:
THE ANGLICAN USE SOCIETY in America in communion with the Holy See of Rome offers to Clergy, Religious and Laity of the Anglican Tradition an information booklet explaining THE PASTORAL PROVISION, the canonical instrument that has made possible their reconciliation with the Holy See as units of common identity which preserve their Anglican heritage of liturgy, hymnody and spirituality.
In other words, an official publication of the Episcopal Church includes an advertisement from an official Roman Catholic organization that invites Episcopal congregations to leave the Episcopal Church and become Roman Catholic. As part of the package, the Episcopal priests of those congregations will be ordained as Roman Catholic priests, even if they are married. Those congregations and clergy will also be allowed to “retain certain liturgical elements proper to the Anglican tradition.”
Episcopal Life is running this ad while our Presiding Bishop is deposing Episcopal bishops for their schismatic actions.
My friends, you just can’t make this stuff up!

Our venerable brethren over at Youth Reform tipped me off to this post great over at Dawn Patrol: Around the world with Planned Parenthood. Surf by and check it out.
This topic always reminds me of the P.J. O’Rourke’s humorous tome All the Trouble in the World: The Lighter Side of Overpopulation, Famine, Ecological Disaster, Ethnic Hatred, Plague, and Poverty his chapter on over population Just Enough of Me, Way Too Much of You is as true as it is funny.
The secularist obsession with “stemming the brown tide” seems to not be so much invited as foisted. Good reason for it, it makes good money! Read the rest of this entry »

Barack Obama’s positions on everything from parental notification to sex shops near schools to sex ed in kindergarten to being the exact opposite of everything I stand for is discussed in this little known video from 8 months ago.
Some disclaimers. First, I am not pleased with the title of this video, but fortunately this vid. doesnt speak about it. Second, this vid. makes references to the “Magical Negro.” This made me a bit uncomfortable until I learned what that expression meant. Then it removed a scale or two from my eyes. The LA Times has an excellent editorial on it here.
The Magical Negro theory may explain the Obama as Messiah phenom which is also reaching new heights. In Obama’s words:
“…that a light will shine through that window,
a beam of light will come down upon you,
you will experience an epiphany
…and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls
and vote for Obama.”
