N. Korean Defector Sending Bibles, 60 Tons of Rice Asks Why Trump Praises ‘Cruelest Leader’

The defector criticized Trump’s praises for Kim Jong Un and saying that he “loves his people,” asking why the U.S. president had to make such “great remarks” and compromise with the North Korean leader. “I don’t get it,” the defector said, pointing out that Kim Jong Un is the state leader of concentration camps where hundreds of thousands of people are imprisoned, including many Christians. “I don’t know what kind of person Trump is now,” Kim said, asking again why the U.S. president has decided to “recognize, acknowledge, and promote the cruelest leader in human history.” The rice bottles come with USB sticks that contain New Testament Bibles, hymns, Korean television dramas, medicine, and information about the outside world.

A Few Observations from a Former Bomb Disposal Officer about Today’s Bomb Scares

1. Proper pipe bombs don’t have wires connected to both ends. That’s dumb.  2. You can find timers / remote control receivers WAY smaller than whatever that white box is. A proper timer would best be stored inside the pipe, making it fully encapsulated. That thing is just silly looking.  3. “Hoax Devices” are FAR more common than real ones. In which case, we should ask ourselves what the motives of the “bomber” are and “who benefits?” Go ahead. Think deeply and critically.  4. Bottom Line: Whoever made that wanted it to be painfully obvious to anyone and everyone that it’s a “bomb.”  This is nearly the same as a bundle of road flares wrapped together with an old-timey alarm clock ticking away.  Read more:  https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1055145782200987648.html

2 Satan-Worshiping Girls Armed with Knives Plotted to Kill 15 Students at Middle School

When asked about motivation, the girls reportedly told police that they were Satan worshipers. According to police, the girls planned to drink their victims’ blood and possibly eat their flesh before committing suicide themselves.  Both juveniles were arrested and removed from the campus, their names are not being released because they are both minors.  Both of the students were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit murder, possession of a weapon on school property, and disrupting a school campus. The girls currently remain in police custody.  Read more:  https://www.abcactionnews.com/news/region-polk/bartow/pd-2-satan-worshiping-girls-armed-with-knives-plotted-to-kill-15-students-at-middle-school

LGBTQ Activists Use Leftist Tactics to Split a Church

The United Methodist Church Book of Discipline clearly states that “The practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching. … Therefore self-avowed practicing homosexuals are not to be certified as candidates, ordained as ministers, or appointed to serve in The United Methodist Church.” Instances of violations of the UMC’s Book of Discipline concerning the ordination of homosexual clergy, and clergy conducting same-sex marriage ceremonies, increase yearly.  They are largely ignored by the hierarchy, and worn as a badge of honor by the violators.  Perhaps the most publicized example of pushing the boundaries of the UMC’s stated beliefs concerning these issues is the case of Bishop Karen Oliveto, the first openly lesbian bishop in The United Methodist Church.  Read more:  https://canadafreepress.com/article/lgbtq-activists-use-leftist-tactics-to-split-a-church

UK Scholars Speak Out against ‘Transgender’ Despotism

More than fifty scholars who work at universities in the U.K., U.S., Australia and elsewhere, and are part of a group of over a hundred, have signed a letter expressing their concern about the detrimental effects of political correctness and the “trans” lobby on their ability to research and report their findings regarding so-called “transgenderism.”  “Members of our group have experienced campus protests, calls for dismissal in the press, harassment, foiled plots to bring about dismissal, no-platforming, and attempts to censor academic research and publications.  The aggressive pushers of “tolerance” are bullies, and these militant homofascists have imposed their propaganda will on schools and universities in the UK.  Read more:  https://americansfortruth.com/2018/10/23/uk-scholars-speak-out-against-transgender-despotism/

FINAL BATTLE ALERT: The Plan All Along

It is becoming increasingly, not just clear, but obvious that the point of the Synod on the Youth is the normalization of homosexuality in the Church.  In fact, this has been the plan all along.  Archbishop Viganò correctly identified the “homosexual current” in the Church and specifically the Vatican. Everything that has happened in the Francis papacy traces directly back to the issue of homosexuality — even Amoris Laetitia.  In 2014, George Pell, the cardinal of Sydney, Australia, came out on camera and said the entire question about divorced and civilly remarried Catholics and Holy Communion was nothing more than a “stalking horse” — his words — to grease the skids for the question of homosexuality being accepted in the Church.  Read more:  https://www.churchmilitant.com/video/episode/vortex-the-plan-all-along

Sweet Cakes Owners Appeal to U.S. Supreme Court

The owners of a shuttered bakery fined by the state after refusing to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple want to take their case to the U.S. Supreme Court.  The former owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa filed a petition asking the high court to overturn the state’s order to pay $135,000 in emotional damages to the couple they turned away.  The Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries imposed the damages after finding the Kleins had violated state anti-discrimination law. The state Supreme Court declined to hear the case.  That leaves the U.S. Supreme Court as the final avenue of appeal, but the odds it will hear the case are long.  Read more:  https://www.oregonlive.com/business/index.ssf/2018/10/sweet_cakes_owners_appeal_to_u.html#incart_river_index

The New Taboo: More People Regret Sex Change and Want to ‘Detransition’, Surgeon Says

Dr. Miroslav Djordjevic says more people, particularly transgender women over 30, are asking for reversal surgery, yet their regrets find little sympathy.  Those wishing the reversal, Djordjevic says, have spoken to him about crippling levels of depression following their transition and in some cases even contemplated suicide. “It can be a real disaster to hear these stories,” says the 52-year-old. And yet, in the main part, they are not being heard.  Last week, it was alleged that Bath Spa University has turned down an application for research on gender reassignment reversal because it was a subject deemed “potentially politically incorrect.”  Read more:  https://nationalpost.com/news/world/the-new-taboo-more-people-regret-sex-change-and-want-to-detransition-surgeon-says

UK: Church Invites Imam to Deliver Eucharistic Sermon – but Where is the Reciprocity?

His Christian audience might find these Qur’an passages of particular interest:  Jesus is not the Son of God and belief in the Trinity is “excess”: “O People of the Book!  The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah.  So believe in Allah and His messengers, and do not say ‘Three.’ Cease! It is better for you!  It is far removed from his transcendent majesty that he should have a son — Qur’an 4:171.  And: “It is not befitting to Allah that he should beget a son. Glory be to him! — Qur’an 19:35.  Jesus was not crucified: “they did not kill him or crucify him, but it appeared so to them; they did not kill him for certain.” — Qur’an 4:157.  Those who believe in the divinity of Christ are unbelievers: “They have certainly disbelieved who say that Allah is Christ, the son of Mary.” — Qur’an 5:17.   Read more:   https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/271710/uk-church-invites-imam-deliver-eucharistic-sermon-robert-spencer
