The Presidency
Obama's rebels establish sharia law -
In most rebel occupied areas of Syria there is none of the "freedom" that Obama claimed would be established by the rebels he supports. Instead, rights have been stripped from women, and there is no freedom of speech or press because the areas are run strictly by Sharia law. Read more
Obama's war on religion - Bill Donohue of the Catholic League wrote a well documented column on Barack Obama's assault on religion -- an assault which does not seem to include Islam. The column has appeared at both NewsMax and the Catholic Leagues' internet site. I highly recommend it not only for Catholics, but for evangelicals and conservative Jews as well. Read more
Senator Rubio defends public prayer -
In an op-ed just prior to the Supreme Court hearings on allowing prayers before public meetings, Senator Rubio said: I believe that part of what distinguishes America from the rest of the world is that we do not feel threatened by each other's faiths. The tradition of praying before meetings of governing or legislative bodies is common all across our country. In fact, it has been meaningful to me in my own career as a public servant." Read more
Prayer Caucus chairman defends public prayer - In a statement after the oral arguments at the Supreme Court on prayer before town-hall meetings, Congressman Randy Forbes made this statement: "The Establishment Clause of the Constitution was designed by the Founding Fathers to prohibit the government from coercing citizens to adhere, or not adhere, to a certain belief; it is not a license to remove all religious references from the public square."

No special protection for drag queens -
Nebraska Senators Deb Fischer and Mike Johanns have gone on record to oppose passage of the so-called "Employment Non-Discrimination Act" (ENDA), which would make drag queens, cross-dressers and transsexuals into federally protected minority groups. Read more
Religion and Culture
Washington Post reluctantly covers terror story -
Wednesday morning, the Washington Post published an article describing the use of social media by Syrian terrorists to memorialize killers who died in battle. The dead terrorists' faces were made to appear as if they were smiling. The Religious Freedom Coalition and WorldNetDaily ran stories on these Syrian "martyrs" back in July and correctly labeled them as terrorists, not "fighters" as does the Post. Read more
Afghanistan: British soldier killed by the policeman he trained -
Lance Corporal Brent McCarthy is shown smiling beside an Afghan policeman in a photo. Just seconds after the photo was taken, the Muslim shot McCarthy to death along with his comrade, Lance Corporal Lee Davies. Read more

Syria: Number of British jihadists in Syria now in hundreds -
The number of British Islamists who have gone to Syria to fight in the war there is in the "low hundreds", a senior UK intelligence official says. Read more

Syria: Huge statue of Jesus erected -
In a government controlled area of Syria a statue of Jesus was erected on a mountain and can be seen from Lebanon, Jordan and Israel. In the Obama rebel controlled area the same week, a statue of the Virgin Mary was destroyed. Read more

Norway: Imam says all Muslims believe in killing gays -
At an address delivered in English in Norway, Fahad Qureshi, founder of the Norwegian Islam Net organization, said that "normal" Muslims, not just radical extremists, support the death penalty for homosexuals, and stoning for adulterers. Read more
