Nigerian Bishops Western LGBT Imperialism*

Nigerian Bishops Western LGBT Imperialism*

genderThe Nigerian Catholic Bishops Conference has made a forthright defence of the institution of marriage, following the U.S. Supreme Court decision redefining the institution and an Irish popular referendum ushering the new definition of marriage into the Emerald Isle.

“The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria would like to once again reiterate the perspective of the Church on more recent developments concerning the sanctity and dignity of human life and the institutions of marriage and the family all across the world,” reads the statement signed by Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama of Jos, president of the Nigerian Bishop’s Conference, and Conference Secretary Bishop William Avenya of Gboko.

The Nigerian bishops write in the statement, released on Wednesday, that the intensifying homosexual political pressure “will tend to provoke a notable and rapid shift in public opinion about the nature and meaning of marriage and family as it has been known for millennia,” which has in turn has resulted in legislative and judicial manoeuvres to redefine marriage.

“We wish to state that this is a sad, unjust and lamentable situation based largely upon a distorted perception of natural law, the will of God and human nature,” the bishops say.

The bishops note that many of the world’s leading economies – including Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Ireland and now the United States of America – have gone down the path of legalizing same-sex “marriage”. That worries them that these nations will exert economic and cultural pressure on traditional societies’ “morality and values.”

The bishops expressed concern at “the persistent and continuous propagation and globalization of the homosexual lifestyle and the effort to redefine marriage which is a distorted view of human sexuality, coming especially from the Western world.”

The bishops call on Nigerian legislators to wary of accepting these Western trends, for the sake of families, because “endorsing homosexual unions or ‘same-sex marriage’ will be devastating and detrimental to our nation of Nigeria, as it will lead to the inevitable deconstruction of the family and the society at large, with other serious but negative implications.”

Furthermore, they appeal to those involved in media, music, entertainment, teaching, medicine, marketing and business “to become faithful gatekeepers by protecting the public from the infiltration of this propaganda, which is often spread through various media and forums.”

“We hereby re-emphasize,” the Nigerian bishops conclude, “that marriage is the sacred union of one man and one woman for the begetting and care of children. It forms the core of the family, which is the bedrock and foundational cell of our civilization and as such judges to shun all pressures and protect all Nigerians from the growing but dangerous influence of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender propaganda.”

The Catholic bishops of Nigeria have repeatedly and unequivocally expressed their support for the protection of life, real marriage, family, and human dignity, and denounced the attempts by Western countries to impose the culture of death on Nigeria.

“The right to life is the first of all fundamental human rights,” the bishops stated in a document published at the end of the Plenary Assembly held in February 2013, under the theme of “Faith and Dignity of the Human Being.”

A communiqué issued last year following an international pro-life march and conference organized by the Catholic Bishops of Nigeria held in Abuja called for the Church to be “more courageous and consistent in pro-life activities in favor of human life, marriage and the family as counter-cultural antidotes to anti-life ideologies and practices.”

The Catholic bishops of Nigeria’s Ibadan Ecclesiastical Province said in a statement at the beginning of their International Pro-life and Pro-family Conference held at the University of Ibadan in April that “the adoption or promotion of same-sex unions undermines the right to life, right to freedom of conscience, religious liberty, respect for moral and cultural values.”

“It also harms the innocence of children, degrades marriage and family life and destabilizes society, now and in the future,” the Ibadan bishops stated.

Iraqi Army, Popular Forces Preparing to Surround ISIL in Fallujah from 4 Directions*

The Iraqi army and popular forces along with the country’s Sunni tribesmen have made major advance in areas near Fallujah, and the city will go under siege from 4 directions in coming hours.

The Iraqi forces purged the terrorists from al-Fani district in Saqlavia region, Northwest of Fallujah, on Thursday and are now advancing towards the Center of Saqlavia.

Once the strategic region of Saqlavia is completely cleaned, the ISIL terrorists in Fallujah will be surrounded completely from four sides.

Iraqi army forces, backed by volunteer forces, launched the operation to liberate the strategic city of Fallujah from the control of the ISIL terrorists on Monday.

Iraqi officials said the offensive to retake the troubled city, located roughly 69 kilometers (43 miles) West of the capital, Baghdad, began on Monday night, and that government troopers together with volunteer fighters reached the gates of Fallujah.

The authorities said that Iraqi forces were in full control of the Western, Southern and Eastern areas leading to the city.

Ja’far Hussaini, a spokesman for pro-government Kata’ib Hezbollah forces, said his contingent has managed to wrest complete control of a Northern supply route.

Fallujah lies between Baghdad and Anbar’s provincial capital of Ramadi, which is under ISIL control. The city’s liberation will choke off the militants’ supply lines.

The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.

Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.

The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.

ISIL Loses Last Headquarters in Iraq’s Diyala

The Iraqi security forces captured the main ISIL base in the Eastern Diyala province and purged the terrorists from the region.

The successful operations of the Iraqi army and popular forces in the strategic town of al-Matibjah on the border of Diyala and Salahuddin provinces led to the freedom of the town and cleaning up the terrorists from the region.

During the operations in Matibjah and its surroundings, also tens of ISIL terrorists were killed and 5 training centers of the terrorist group were destroyed completely.

Last month, the Iraqi army attacks in the Eastern province of Diyala killed 300 Takfiri terrorists from different nationalities.

Abdol Amir al-Zaidi, the commander of Iraq’s Tigris operations, was quoted as saying by Sumeriya News that his forces have killed over 100 foreign non-Arab terrorists and 200 Takfiri terrorists with different Arab nationalities.

He added that the non-Arab terrorists were from the European and Asian countries, most of them ISIL ringleaders.

The Iraqi forces liberated the entire Diyala province from the control of the ISIL terrorists in January.

The Iraqi Badr Organization announced at the time that it has regained control of different regions in Diyala province.

The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control a shrinking part of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.

Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.

The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.

Common Core is for Your Kids not Bill Gates’*

Common Core is for Your Kids not Bill Gates’*

By Eric Owens

Billionaire software tycoon Bill Gates has poured millions of dollars into efforts to develop and promote the Common Core State Standards Initiative, a set of K-12 math and language arts curriculum benchmarks and high-stakes standardized tests now being implemented in 46 states.

Strangely enough, though, Common Core isn’t quite good enough for Gates and his wife, Melinda, when it comes to the education of their own three children.

Diane Ravitch, a self-styled education policy iconoclast who tends to oppose Common Core (and charter schools, and much else), noted this irony on her blog earlier this week.

The children of Bill and Melinda Gates – Jennifer, Rory and Phoebe – have attended Lakeside School, Seattle’s most elite, fancypants private school.

The hallowed halls of Lakeside School are a sweet place to attend classes if you have the means.

According to a Seattle education blog, the student-teacher ratio is 9 to 1. The average class size is 16. Some two dozen varsity sports are available and the opulent athletic facilities include “hydrotherapy spas.”

Of course, what with tuition for the 2013-14 academic year costing $28,500 per kid (not including books, laptop, field trips, etc.), most families don’t have the means.

Lakeside’s website doesn’t appear to discuss Common Core much.

The mission of Lakeside School is to develop in intellectually capable young people the creative minds, healthy bodies, and ethical spirits needed to contribute wisdom, compassion, and leadership to a global society,” reads the school’s mission statement.

“We provide a rigorous and dynamic academic program through which effective educators lead students to take responsibility for learning.”

A sub-mission statement talks about “interacting compassionately, ethically, and successfully with diverse peoples and cultures.”

A 2011 webpage from Lakeside School does discuss how Lakeside has sort-of-kind-of used Common Core’s relatively obscure science component as a framework. The page notes, however, that Lakeside students are “generally more advanced than average” and won’t be subject to any of the standardized testing which the hoi polloi in public schools will undergo.

Like his children, Gates also attended Lakeside before going off to – and then dropping out of – Harvard University.

The True Furqan Hoax

The True Furqan Hoax

By Sheila Musaji

I was recently made aware of a supposed translation of the Qur’an called The True Furqan by Al Safee and Al Mahdy printed by Omega 2001 and Wine Press.  I was notified about the book when a Christian group called TBN encouraged people to donate for sending copies of this book to Iraq to be passed out by Christian soldiers to local Iraqi civilians.

I did some background checking to find out a little more.  The text of this book is available online on a site called Islam-Exposed.

Each sura begins, “In the Name of the Father, the Word, the Holy Spirit, the One and Only True God,” an echo of the Koran’s “In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.”

The government of India has banned the book from entering the country.  No: 78/ NT (07-Sep-05) Govt prohibits import of book titled ‘The True Furqan’, subtitled ‘The 21st Century Quran’ published by USA-based publisher
The Central Government, for the maintenance of security of India, absolutely prohibits import of the book entitled “The True Furqan”, subtitled “The 21st Century Quran” published in the United States of America by Omega, 2000 and Wine Press, including any extract there from, any reprint or translation thereof or any document reproducing any matter contained therein.

Anis Shorrosh’s site praises the book, and in an article about the book he said:  The prophet of Arabia challenged the entire world to compose a book equal to the Quran. We accepted the challenge as stated in Surah 17:88. The outcome is The True Furqan. Our second purpose is to present the Good News of Jesus the Christ to our fellow Arabs in the prose and poetic style of the classical language of the Arabic Quran.

John Mark Ministries praises the book and here are a few quotes from the description:  “The True Furqan,” a 368-page book mirroring the Qur’an, or Koran, in language and style, but challenging its teachings and divine authority”  …  “The purpose of The True Furqan is a tool of evangelism, because so far we have not found a breakthrough way to reach the Muslim world for Christ”  …  “Now, The True Furqan not only presents the gospel message in classical Arabic, but moreover, it seeks to become a key to reaching the Muslim world for Christ by answering a 1,400-year-old challenge from the Qur’an:
“Say: ‘If the whole/ of mankind and Jinns/ Were to gather together/ to produce the like/ of this Qur’an they could not produce/ the like thereof, even if/ They backed each other/ With help and support’” (The Holy Qur’an, Surah 17:88).

The U.S. Information site published an article in April of 2005 which provides a lot of information about this book.  It is produced by an Evangelical Christian group that seeks to convert Muslims to Christianity, but contrary to some allegations the group has no connection with the U.S. government.  The True Furqan was written in Arabic and translated into English by Anis Shorrosh.

So there indeed is a Qur’an mockery being handed around. It is available online as well. It is not a translation of the Qur’an or even a rewrite, but an attempt to confuse some ignorant people by giving the Christian Gospel message the appearance of a Qur’anic style.  However, anyone who has read the real thing, the original or the English translation will soon see that this thing does not have the arrangement, the style, the confidence, nor the unique content found in the original.  It is a desperate measure to find some way to convert the infidel Muslims since a few hundred years of concerted effort have brought so little success.

The new AMERICAN Quran:- “Al – furqan Al – Haqq” is a book written in Arabic mirroring The Holy Qur’an but incorporating elements of traditionalist’s non Islamic teachings. The new Quran is being distributed in Kuwait, titled The True Furqan?. Al-Furqan, a weekly Magazine has found out that two American printing companies; “Omega 2001” and “Wine Press” are involved in the publishing of ?The True Furqan?, a book which has also been titled “The 21st Century Quran”! It his over 366 pages and is in both the Arabic and English language so the book contains 77 Surats, which include Al-Fatiha, Al-Jana and Al-Injil.

Instead of Bismillah, each Surat begins with a longer version of this incorporating the non Islamic belief of the three spirits( Holy Trinity). And this so called Book opposes many Islamic beliefs. In one of its ayats it describes having more than one wife as fornication, divorce being non-permissible and it uses a new system for the sharing out of the Will, opposing the current one. This book even goes as far as attacking Allah, (Subhana wa Tahala)! All this is poisoning our children at approx. $3. per copy.

From Wikipedia

The True Furqan, al-Furqan al-Haqq is a book written in Arabic mirroring the Qur’an but incorporating elements of traditional Christian teachings.

According to Baptist News, Al-Mahdy, a member of the executive committee of “Project Omega 2001” released The True Furqan in April 1999 saying that Muslims “have not received the true message of the gospel.”. The book is attributed to authors who go by the pseudonyms of “Al Saffee” and “Al Mahdee”, and was translated into English by Anis Shorrosh, who calls it “a tool to liberate Muslims”, and who believes that Muhammad is “the antichrist”. It contains 77 numbered chapters, plus a prologue and epilogue. According to Shorrosh, The True Furqan is an attempt to respond to the challenge in the Quran that none can create a work like it, and incorporates a Christian rather than Islamic message.

Christian missionary Dr. Ray Register characterized the book as an effective tool for “pre-evangelism” to help “critique the Quran and popular Muslim attitudes toward Jesus and ethical living.”  American Thinker editor and publisher Thomas Lifson wrote that the book “presents Christian theology in a way that it can be understood and digested by Muslims.” but says that some Muslims are offended by the book because they feel that the work mocks Islam and tries to deceive Muslims into accepting The True Furqan.

It has been described as “Christian propaganda” since its second verse “starts talking about the Holy Trinity, a thoroughly un-Islamic concept.” and The American Muslim called the book a “hoax”, saying it represented “a desperate measure to find some way to convert the infidel Muslims since a few hundred years of concerted effort have brought so little success”.Other critics called it “poor in quality and ridiculous in content” and “a pathetic attempt to distort the Quranic teaching by reproducing what looks like Quranic verses.”

Some Islamic believers feel The True Furqan was created by the American or Israeli governments as part of a conspiracy. The Egyptian newspaper Al-Usbūc claimed in its December 6, 2004 edition that “The True Koran [sic] was drafted with direct Israeli participation and with direct instructions from U.S. President George Bush.

” The US State Department strongly rejects allegations of any US government participation in the creation of The True Furqan. According to the translator Anis Shorrosh, “there was no Israeli involvement in the preparation of the book.”

The importation of the book into India is prohibited.
