THE PRESIDENCY 
SANTORUM MOVES TOWARD THE TOP - Social conservatives seem to be moving toward Senator Rick Santorum as their choice for president after months of following many divergent trails. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was the leader in the race until the appearance of Gov. Rick Perry. The large, inside-the-Beltway, Christian evangelical groups had recruited Perry as their answer to Mitt Romney. Indeed, many large, well known organizations radically changed their policy on illegal immigration to that of Perry, just to get him to enter the race. In the background, Rick Santorum kept plugging away at the grassroots level and refused demands by the heads of large evangelical groups to drop out. He is now polling number three in Iowa and positioned to take the second or even top slot as did Gov. Mike Huckabee four years ago.  
THE CHANGE BROUGHT BY SOCIALISTS AND THE NAZIS - Don Feder wrote for the Boston Herald for many years and is now a well known conservative consultant. He helped to organize, and also spoke at, the first Sharia or the Constitution Conference held in Nashville, Tennessee on 11/11/11. A recent column he wrote for GrasstopsUSA, comparing the tactics of the Obama Administration to the early years of Adolph Hitler, has caused some pain to the liberal media. The comparisons are astonishing. See column here

CONGRESS 
CONGRESS IN RECESS (SORT OF) - The House and the Senate adjourned just before Christmas Day after extending a cut in the Social Security Trust Fund tax for two months. (Learn how this affects Social Security) The cost of the failure to pass a tax bill for more than a few months at a time is astronomical to business. Payroll systems that were set to take effect on January 1st had to be changed in the past week with huge amounts of overtime and consultant fees, and all for just a two month system. Worse, Democrats want the reduction in payments to the Social Security Trust Fund to become a major election issue and will try for only another six month extension, to cause more debate just before the election. Meanwhile, GOP members of the Senate are doing a call to order every few days to stop President Obama from making recess appointments.

RELIGION AND CULTURE
China National Petroleum WE SPILL BLOOD, CHINA GETS THE OIL - Until Barack Obama won the presidency the left screamed that "the war" was about oil. The liberal media chanted that we were paying for oil with blood. Maybe, but the Chinese are getting the oil. The first contract issued for oil exploration in Afghanistan went to CNPC, the China National Petroleum Corporation which is owned directly by the Chinese government. The Chinese will also build Afghanistan's first oil refinery within the next three years. The roads to and from the refinery will probably be paid for by American taxpayers.

Nigeria Church Bombed NIGHTMARE CHRISTMAS IN NIGERIA - On Christmas Day, churches were bombed in five Nigerian cities - Madalla, Jos, Kano, Damaturu, and Gadaka - leaving dozens, perhaps hundreds, dead or wounded. The killings were apparently the latest handiwork of the violent Islamist group Boko Haram, and they show an increased level not only of violence but also of sophistication, since the explosions were coordinated and widespread, including the northwest, north, and center of the country.

NO CHRISTMAS FOR ASIA BIBI - Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five sentenced to death on charges of "blasphemy" against Islam, along with over a dozen other Christians held in Pakistani jails spent Christmas Day without their families, after authorities refused requests to allow prison visits. Read more. Later reports indicated that no Christians held in Pakistani jails were allowed visits on Christmas Day. The United States gives Pakistan billions of dollars in aid each year, most of it from Christian taxpayers.
EUROPE'S MARCH TO ISLAM - Post-Christian Europe became noticeably more Islamized during 2011. As the rapidly growing Muslim population makes its presence felt in towns and cities across the continent, Islam is transforming the European way of life in ways unimaginable only a few years ago. Hudson New York has just published a list by country of the more outrageous Islam-related controversies that took place in Europe during 2011. Read it at Hudson New York
HORRIFIC ACID ATTACK IN CHURCH BLINDS PASTOR-In Kampala, Uganda, Pastor Umar Mulinde was preparing for the Christmas Eve service at the Gospel Life Church. Two men pretending to be Christians entered the church and poured acid on Pastor Mulinde, severely burning him and blinding him in one eye. The attackers ran out of the church shouting "Allah Akbar!" Mulinde, himself a convert from Islam, has won many others to Christ in spite of frequent threats on his life. Read more.

December 23, 2011 - Washington, DC



The staff of the Religious Freedom Coalition wishes all readers and supporters a very Merry Christmas! May God bless each and everyone!
 
Barack Obama's holiday and Ronald Reagan's Christmas address / No Social Security tax reduction for Christmas / Macy's holiday LGBT policy: Any man wearing lipstick can use the women's fitting room / No Christmas for Christian mother in Pakistani jail
PRESIDENCYObama Holiday Card 2011
THE OBAMA HOLIDAY - The attitude of Barack Obama toward Christmas probably can be summed up with the official White House "holiday card" designed by L.A. artist and designer Mark Matuszak: Not a single human being is pictured in the card and there is no Christmas tree in sight either. The "holiday" card centers on the Obama dog Bo sitting in front of a fireplace. To the Obama's Christmas is just a tradition and has nothing to do with the reality of the birth of Jesus Christ.  

CHRISTMAS UNDER RONALD REAGAN - Just 30 years ago an American President sat in the Oval Office and broadcast a Christmas message to the American people, something that had not been done in many years. During the short message Reagan talked of the birth of the newborn King. It is well worth the three minutes to watch at Youtube.
THE CONGRESS

NO PAYROLL TAX GIFT FOR CHRISTMAS? -
The Democrat controlled Senate passed a two month extension of the two percent reduction in the tax that funds Social Security, and then left town. The Republican controlled House refused to go along, as Speaker Boehner demanded a deal for one full year. Now it seems he may back down and accept the two month extension. With the one-year cut, the Social Security Trust fund would be short changed $112 billion during 2012. The shortfall will be covered by borrowing money from China. On the bright side the average family will have an extra $1,000 to spend on Chinese products in 2012. Learn more

CULTURE AND RELIGION 
MACY'S LGBT CHRISTMAS - Macy's actually fired a female employee in San Antonio because she would not allow a man wearing lipstick to use the women's dressing room. Macy's stated that it had a strict "LGBT friendly policy." LGBT stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender. Under the Macy's policy, transgenders and bisexuals can use either the men's or women's dressing rooms. Just imagine a rape victim's reaction to finding a man standing outside her dressing room, and the folly of this policy becomes clear..

Report From Washington - December 16, 2011



The Senate becomes a religious freedom battleground / Why Senator Durbin hates the US Commission on International Religious Freedom / Dick Durbin's attempt to gut the USCIRF / Senator Durbin's connection to the Muslim Brotherhood / Most mosques in U.S. promote jihad / Saudi Arabia beheads "witch" / Hare Krishna temple attacked by Muslims in Copenhagen / Jordanian politician says Islam has right to worldwide jihad

THE PRESIDENCY

Dick Durbin guts USCIRF THE USCIRF BATTLEGROUND - There is no doubt that the Obama White House was behind the attempt to defund and shut down the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom. The bleak reports from the USCIRF on religious persecution in many of the Islamic nations favored by President Obama moved his Administration to shut down the USCIRF through the back door. The point man, Senator Dick Durbin, is from Obama's home state of Illinois. He is Obama's former colleague and is also the Majority Whip, the number two Democrat in the Senate. The USCIRF is an embarrassment to an Administration which wants to pretend that Sharia law, which permits honor killings, is no different than English Common Law.  
THE WHITE HOUSE AND USCIRF - Republicans in the Senate forced through temporary funding for the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom; however, Democrats added a last minute Amendment that would get rid of many of the Bush appointees with "term limits" and allow Obama to stack the deck with liberals who have no problem with Islamic honor killings. The main sponsor of the bill in the House, Frank Wolf, called the demand blackmail. Late breaking news is that the amendment bill was passed by voice vote in the House.

CONGRESS 
SENATOR DURBIN'S WAR FOR ISLAM - Back in 2005 while George W. Bush was still in office, Senator Dick Durbin compared American soldiers to Nazis. He is now the second most powerful man in the United States Senate after Majority Leader Reid. Durbin's key staffer, Reema B. Dodin, is in regular contact with the Council on American Islamic-Relations, which is an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism case. Dodin is a Palestinian rights activist who organized anti-Israel rallies at the University of California at Berkeley as a student. Dodin was also a member of the Muslim Students Association, which was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood. More on Dodin. Durbin's attempt to shut down the United States Commission on International Freedom should not come as a surprise to anyone. There is a smiling Durbin in this photo posing with men who have clear connections to radical Islam.  
DURBIN USCRIF AMENDMENT - Senator Dick Durbin showed his true colors when tacking on an amendment to a bill reauthorizing funding for the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom. The amendment retroactively limits commissioners to a total of four years of service, thus he gets rid of Nina Shea and other critics of radical Islam from the USCIRF. His amendment also limits travel of commissioners to the same standards as the State Department, meaning they will not be able to travel to areas where religious freedom is most in jeopardy. An example: State Department staff may not visit East Jerusalem. Durbin's refusal to fund USCIRF had nothing to do with freeing up money to fund a prison in Illinois as his staff suggested, and had everything to do with shutting down critics of radical Islam.
BIBLE BAN RESCINDED BY HOSPITAL - The Prayer Caucus, headed by Congressman Randy Forbes, (R-VA) intervened with the Walter Reed Armed Forces Hospital when it was learned that visitors had been banned from bringing Bibles and other religious objects to their loved ones. Congressman Steve King (R-IA) joined Forbes in demanding a change to the policy. Last week the hospital apologized and said a new policy would be issued. Read more


RELIGION AND CULTURE 
MOST MOSQUES IN US PROMOTE JIHAD - Perspectives on Terrorism recently released a comprehensive study on violence-advocating texts in American mosques titled Sharia Adherence Mosque Survey: Correlations between Sharia Adherence and Violent Dogma in U.S. Mosques. The Shariah Adherence Mosque Survey found that 80% of U.S. mosques provide their worshipers with jihad-style literature promoting the use of violence against non-believers and that the imams in those mosques expressly promote that literature.

WITCH IS 73rd PERSON BEHEADED IN SAUDI THIS YEAR - A 62-year-old Saudi Arabian woman convicted of "practicing witchcraft and sorcery," was beheaded this week according to the Saudi interior ministry. Amina bint Abdulhalim Nassar became the 73rd person executed this year. She was found guilty of witchcraft in the Jawf province of the Kingdom. A few weeks ago 9 people from Bangledesh were beheaded but the crime they committed is unclear. Actually, under Islamic law a death sentence sometimes requires no crime at all.
ATTACK IN COPENHAGEN - The Hare Krishna temple in Western Copenhagen was recently assaulted by a group of young Muslims throwing stones and breaking windows. To diminish the risk in the now Muslim-dominated neighborhood, the devotees of the temple were requested not to wear their characteristic clothes. The police took 30 minutes to respond to the first attack and never showed up after the second attack. Read more

THE PRESIDENCY
Clinton proclaims gay rights worldwide OBAMA, GAYS, MUSLIMS AND IMMIGRATION - President Obama has in effect ordered U.S. agencies to import homosexuals from all over the world who are "threatened." Thus anyone who walks into a U.S. embassy anywhere in the world where homosexual activities (including gay marriage) are illegal, can claim to be gay and be immediately put at the front of the line to immigrate to the United States. How, after all, could officials disprove a person's "gayness?" At the same time he has opened the gates to Islamic "refugees." Read more
SECRETARY CLINTON, CHAMPION OF GAY RIGHTS - On December 6th at a conference in Geneva, Switzerland, attended by diplomats from all over the world including Arab nations, Secretary Clinton compared the struggle for "gay equality" to women's rights and racial equality. She said that a nation's cultural or religious "traditions" are not an excuse for discrimination against homosexuals. "Gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights," she said. "It should never be a crime to be gay," Clinton declared and concluded that, "Gay people are born into and belong to every society in the world."
CLINTON TO BACK BLASPHEMY LAWS? - For more than 20 years, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has pressed Western governments to restrict free speech. Its charter states a goal "to combat defamation of Islam," and it wants "deterrent punishments" by all states to counter Islamophobia. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appears ready to buy into the idea of limited free speech worldwide if Islam is the subject. Read More

SENATOR DURBIN TRIES TO KILL U.S. COMMISSION ON INTERNATIONAL RELIGIOUS FREEDOM - Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) wants the federal government to buy a bankrupt private prison in his home state of Illinois to "create jobs." To get the bucks for the deal he has put a hold on the funding for the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, the only body that spotlights abuses of religious minorities. The appointees of the USCIRF are not even paid! -- and it is about the most efficient body associated with the federal government. Please contact Senator Durbin and ask him to remove his hold for funding of the USCIRF. If you do not live in Illinois his email system rejects messages. Call his office at 202.224.2152 or send a fax to 202.228.0400
SENATOR TO OBAMA: FT HOOD ATTACK NOT "WORKPLACE VIOLENCE" - During a joint session of the House and Senate Homeland Security Committees on December 7th, Senator Susan Collins (R-MA) blasted a letter by the Department of Defense labeling the Fort Hood jihad attack by Major Nidal Hasan, as a case of workplace violence.

Islam over Ameria SHUTDOWN OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM? - The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) will cease to operate if Congress does not pass and President Obama does not sign into law no later than Dec. 16, legislation either reauthorizing it or continuing its funding. USCIRF is currently funded in a spending bill that expires on that date. Human rights activist Faith McDonnell said, "Dissolution of USCIRF would send a message to tyrants and thug regimes around the world that the United States no longer considers religious freedom a priority."

The investigation, according to prosecutor Józef Mizerski, is not a typical one in Poland. It is known as "the honor killing".
