Theodore Shoebat reports on the blood curdling horror wrought upon young Christian girls by satan’s hounds of hell:

Muslims in Nigeria kidnapped 250 underage Christian girls, and brutally gang raped them over and over again before butchering them. One Christian girl curled up into a ball and begged for mercy. The Muslims got all of this on film, to boastfully record their own evils.

Senator Zanna, representing Born Central Senatorial District, saw the film and recounted the terrifying memory:

Actually the information I’m getting, some of them are very disturbing. Although I don’t want to mention but they are just raping the girls on camera and even showing them on video, releasing it to the public… Somebody told me that they were shown being raped, and in turn, it is the girl who was raped that came out kneeling down and begging the man to be patient. Do you know the reason why? They said when they rape them they shoot them. Therefore the girl after being raped, she curled down to the man, kneeling down and begging him to please be patient. So disturbing

The girls were also forcefully married off to Muslim men infected with syphilis, gonorrhoea and staphylococcus. Pregnant Christian women were also slaughtered by these worthless devils who are worthy of death. More details of this demonic and hellish crime comes from a Nigerian report that states:

Court: Christian Police Captain’s Punishment For Refusing to Attend Islamic Service Not Violation Of Rights [UPDATED]

May 24, 2014 at 11:32 am

Arab_FiringMosque
A christian (public servant) Captain Paul Fields has been punished for refusing to bow to Islam.  He has been stripped of his command and demoted. That has the rancid stench of [state sanctioned] sharia all over it.

(Christian News Network) — TULSA, Okla. An appeals court has ruled that the rights of an Oklahoma police captain that was punished in 2010 for refusing to attend an Islamic service were not violated.

As previously reported, three years ago, Captain Paul Fields was ordered to attend “Law Enforcement Appreciation Day,” which was hosted by the Islamic Society of Tulsa at a local mosque. The event, held on an Islamic holy day, was to include a tour of the mosque, an Islamic prayer service, lectures on the Islamic faith and meetings with local Muslim leaders.

Because Fields is a Christian, he felt uncomfortable with attending the event, which was not an official police function. He reportedly met with his superiors to express his concerns and outline why he believed that it was unlawful for the Tulsa Police Department to force him to attend.

“This event is not a police ‘call for service,’ which I would readily respond to as required by my oath of office,” Fields wrote in an email. “It is my opinion, and that of my legal counsel, that forcing me to enter a mosque when it is not directly related to a police call for service is a violation of my civil rights.”

“This is not about religion,” said Police Chief Charles Jordan. “[W]e’re not going because they’re Islamic; we’re going because they’re Tulsa citizens.”

Bullshit. Pure islamophile bullshit.

Attorney Robert Muise of the American Freedom Law Center, which has been representing Fields, has vowed to appeal the decision. He also noted that Fields had informed his superiors that he did not wish to send any subordinates to the event who shared his Christian faith, and stated that he could not attend himself.

“This ruling is troubling on so many levels,” he wrote in a press release following the ruling. “We have argued throughout this case that Captain Fields was summarily punished for simply raising and asserting a religious objection to the order mandating attendance at the Islamic event, and that such discriminatory treatment violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments.”

“Indeed, even a cursory review of our briefing before the district court and in the appellate court makes clear the basis for Captain Fields’ constitutional claims: he was singled out for discriminatory treatment and thus punished because he raised a religious objection to the order,” he added. “That is religious discrimination, pure and simple.”

[UPDATE] Tulsa Police Dept’s statement:

The Tulsa Police Department issued a statement as a result of outrage from supporters of the captain.

“One of the Department’s missions is that of community outreach. To facilitate this effort, the Police Department determined this event was a community outreach opportunity and attendance was appropriate,” it stated. “Contrary to what may have already been reported in scheduling this event, the Police Department and the Islamic Society of Tulsa very deliberately arranged attendance so that officers need not participate in any religious discussion or observance that would create any discomfort or inconvenience for them.”

ORLY? Law enforcement Appreciation Day held on a Friday the day muslims hold their prayer services. Would a Catholic church do the same interrupting the sabbath? I think not!

The flyer invite sent to the PD. Note no mention of police work aside from the disingenuous Law Enforcement Appreciation Day label. Which would have been more appropriately titled as; Law Enforcement Da’wah Day.

 

flyerDa’wah (Islamic proselytizing) according to Islam Tomorrow:

The word “Da’wah” in Arabic simply means to invite to something. When it is used in conjunction with Islam it is understood to mean “Inviting to the Way of submission and surrender to Allah.”

Da’wah in Islam is actually an order from Allah in His Holy Qur’an in a number of places. Let us consider one:

    • “Kuntum khairan ummatin ukhrajat linaasi tawmaruna bil maruf wa tan anna anhil munkar.”
      You are the best of people raised up, for you call to all that is right and righteous and you forbid the evil, and you believe in Allah.
      [Qur'an 3:110]

The America Freedom Law Center who are defending Captain Fields explain the chain of events:

On January 25, 2011, Deputy Chief of Police Webster, who is a defendant in this lawsuit, announced in a staff meeting that the Islamic Society was hosting a “Law Enforcement Appreciation Day” that was scheduled for Friday, March 4, 2011. Friday is the “holy day” or “Sabbath” for Islam.

On Wednesday, February 16, 2011, an email approved by City police officials was sent to all police department personnel, stating, “Please see attached flier and rsvp if attending to ensure there is plenty of great food and tour guides.” Attached to the email was a flyer from the Islamic Society.

The event at the Islamic Society was not a collaborative event between the City Police Department and the Islamic Society, but simply an open invitation to “All Tulsa Law Enforcement” that was planned solely by the Islamic Society.

There was no agenda on the invitation flyer—nor was one created by City police offficials—for the invited officers to discuss crime or crime related issues of any kind. Consequently, the Islamic event was not a function of what is known as “Community Policing,” nor did this event involve a “call for service.” In sum, it was a private event hosted by an Islamic religious organization.

The Islamic event involved “Mosque tours,” meeting “Local Muslims & Leadership,” watching the “weekly congregational prayer service,” and receiving presentations on Islamic “beliefs . . . . All questions welcome!” Thus, as advertised, the event involved Islamic proselytizing. See a copy of the flyer here. Consequently, no officer under Captain Fields’ command volunteered to attend.

On February 17, 2011, Captain Fields received an email from his immediate supervisor at the Riverside Division, Major Julie Harris. This email had the subject line, “Tour of Mosque – March 4,” and stated, in relevant part, “We are directed by [Deputy Chief of Police] Webster to have representatives from each shift—2nd, 3rd, and 4th to attend [the Islamic event].” This email also contained the directive from Webster, which was pasted into the text of the email. Webster, with the approval of Chief of Police Jordan, who is also a defendant in this lawsuit, was now ordering officers to attend the Islamic event. It was no longer voluntary.

After receiving the email from Major Harris, Captain Fields met with her to discuss the order from Webster.  He advised Major Harris of his belief that the order was unlawful.  Captain Fields correctly believes that City police officials do not have a right to order police officers to attend an Islamic event against the officers’ personal religious beliefs and convictions.

Captain Fields also responded to the order by email.  In his email response, Captain Fields stated that he believed that the order directing officers to attend the Islamic event was “an unlawful order, as it is in direct conflict with my personal religious convictions, as well as to be conscience shocking.”  Captain Fields concluded his email by stating, “Please consider this email my official notification to the Tulsa Police Department and the City of Tulsa that I intend not to follow this directive, nor require any of my subordinates to do so if they share similar religious convictions.”

On February 18, 2011, Webster sent a three-page interoffice correspondence to Captain Fields by email that affirmed the order and requested Captain Fields to reconsider his position.  Captain Fields again refused based on his religious beliefs, convictions, and conscience.

As a result of Captain Fields’s refusal to compromise his religious beliefs and convictions and violate his conscience, Webster ordered Captain Fields to appear in Jordan’s conference room on Monday, February 21, 2011.

During this meeting with Jordan and Webster, Captain Fields again explained that he believed the order was unlawful and that he could not, in good conscience, obey the order nor force the officers under his charge to obey it.

At the conclusion of this meeting, Captain Fields was served with a pre-prepared order transferring him to the Mingo Valley Division, as well as a notification that the police department was initiating an internal investigation of him for allegedly violating Rule 6 of the Tulsa Police Department Rules and Regulations (“Duty to be Truthful and Obedient”).  The transfer order stated, “This action is taken in reference to an Internal Affairs administrative investigation regarding the refusal to follow a direct order.”

Prior to being transferred for his refusal to violate his personal religious beliefs and those of the officers under his charge, Captain Fields was the shift commander for 26 officers and 5 supervisors.  As a result of this transfer, which is now a permanent part of his personnel record, Captain Fields was stripped of his command and his stellar reputation as a police officer was irreparably tarnished.

On March 10, 2011, Captain Fields received an official notification via email stating, “You are hereby notified that Chief Chuck Jordan has requested IA [Internal Affairs] to conduct an administrative investigation in regards to your refusal to attend and refusal to assign officers from your shift, who shared your religious beliefs, to attend the ‘Law Enforcement Appreciation Day’ on March 4, 2011, at the Tulsa Peace Academy [a.k.a. Islamic Society].

Continued >>>

A few more details on Captain Fields’ punishment:

Just before the invitation to the classes, Captain Fields was one of a group of officers involved in protecting the mosque from threats by a “criminal suspect,” yet he was moved to another department, had his pay suspended for two weeks and denied promotion for one year. He is appealing.

[End update]

Maggie of Maggie’s Notebook on the ‘Islamic Society of North America’ of which The Islamic Society of Tulsa is an affiliate:

Captain Paul Fields of the Tulsa Police was suspended and then transferred for refusing to order his officers to attend an event at the Masjid al-Salam, the Islamic Society of Tulsa (IST). Masjid al-Salam means Mosque of Peace Be Upon You (or something very close). In the IST constitution, on their website, they say they have a “continuous affiliation with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).” The ISNA is an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism trials (they collected charitable funds and funneled the money to Hamas and others), as is the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), who owns IST. It is believed the NAIT is funded by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Video below.

Here are the questions we need answers to:

Does/did Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan know about Islamic Society of Tulsa’s connections to the ISNA, NAIT, and the Muslim Brotherhood when they suspended and reassigned Captain Paul Fields, and then charged him with having an “anti-Islamic agenda?”…..Do un-indicted co-conspirators of the Holy Land Foundation terrorism funding trials mean nothing to Tulsa law enforcement? Do FBI reports mean nothing? It doesn’t matter whether mosque goers are seen as peaceful members of the community. The Masjid al-Salam Islamic Society of Tulsa has terrorist ties. Z Truth has the story of the anti-Islamic agenda charge against Fields and some good commentary.
……
Captain Paul Fields has not been reinstated since this April meeting the Chief attended. Perhaps Jordan doesn’t understand that Israelis fight terrorism ONLY AGAINST ISLAMISTS. The ISNA and the NAIT are Islamist organizations.  The NAIT owns the Tulsa mosque. The Islamic Society of Tulsa is affiliated with the ISNA. The FBI says the ISNA and the NAIT are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. This police department is every Islamists dream.

FORCED to attend a day of islamic indoctrination at the Islamic Society of Tulsa’s (IST) mosque. IST is affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America (the head of the Islamic Society snake) who are officially listed as un-indicted co-conspirators of the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trials. Yet Capt. Fields was  stripped of his command when he refused based on his Christian religious beliefs. YET his rights were not violated.

Did ya get all that?

Texas DOT Orders Ten Commandments Sign On Private Property Be Removed

May 17, 2014 at 11:23 am

ten commandments sign texas

Sabine Co. Ten Commandments sign generating buzz in Texas, Louisiana

A pedestal perching muslim would have been left alone.

First-Amendment-Religious-Freedom-610x400(Christian News Network) –HEMPHILL, Texas – The Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) is ordering that a Ten Commandments sign posted on private property near a state highway be removed.

Jeannette Golden of Hemphill, Texas purchased the 6 x 12-foot sign from the organization God’s Ten last summer and posted it on her property just off Highway 21. However, according to reports, Golden was soon contacted by the state, which took issue with the sign, stating that the display could be classified as commercial advertising.

Golden then painted over the website on the display, but officials advised that the sign was still considered to be “outdoor advertising” and would therefore require a permit. The permit would cost $125, with an annual fee of $75 and a $250 surety bond. Fines for failure to obtain a permit are as high as $1,000 per day.

However, TXDOT now states that “no permit is possible” and that the sign must be removed as pursuant to the Highway Beautification Act, which relates to advertising. Golden is insistent that her sign is not an advertisement.

“I wasn’t advertising because that’s my freedom of religion, and that’s what I believe, and I was not informing anybody,” she told reporters. “It was just something that I stood for.”

Local residents have rallied around Golden by purchasing a billboard not too far from her property that reads “In God We Trust.” Others have verbally expressed support for the right to display the sign.

“[N]ot only has my phone been ringing off the hook, but people would see me in the community and say, ‘Don’t let that sign go down,’” she told local television station KTRE.

In the meantime, Golden has enlisted the help of the Plano-based Christian legal organization The Liberty Institute. [...]

CFL Fines 3 Players For Michael Sam Tweets –1 Of 2 Faith Based Tweeters Has Also Been Released

May 13, 2014 at 1:03 pm

political-correctness_submission

“The CFL will not tolerate discrimination of any kind. Whether it’s race, religion or sexual preference.”
–CFL commissioner Mark Cohon

Unless of course you are a Christian or a heterosexual or both, then the jackboot comes down swiftly upon your neck. Your thoughts are not your own! Conform or else!

(CBC) –Calgary Stampeders receiver Maurice Price has been fined an undisclosed amount by the CFL for inappropriate comments about the NFL’s St. Louis Rams draft pick, Michael Sam.

“The CFL will not tolerate discrimination of any kind,” said CFL commissioner Mark Cohon. “Whether it’s race, religion or sexual preference, our values are of acceptance and equality. We fully support openly gay athletes in our league, and in the sports community in general.”

Sam is the first openly gay player to be drafted by an NFL team.

My faith won’t let me accept what took place over the weekend. Sorry, not sorry! #AdamAndEve #NotAdamAndAdam,” tweeted Price.

“And it’s highly disturbing that under the current constitution individuals have been fined for verbalizing their thoughts.”
……
The Stampeders also condemned the tweets, saying the team was outraged by the offensive comments.

“The comments are repugnant and in no way reflect the organization’s views or values,” the team tweeted Monday.
……
There have been other disciplinary actions relating to Sam:

  • The CFL fined Montreal Alouettes wide receiver Arland Bruce in February for urging Sam on social media to “submit fully to God.”
  • Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive tackle Bryant Turner Jr. was fined for a tweet saying “Michael Sam locker-room gonna come with complimentary robes.”

BTW

The Montreal Alouettes have released veteran receiver Arland Bruce just two weeks after he was fined for making homophobic comments.

The Alouettes and CFL slammed Bruce for his social media urging to openly gay football player Michael Sam that he “submit to God.”

Bruce, who later apologized, was penalized an undisclosed amount by the league on Feb. 11th.

The Alouettes then cut ties with the 36-year-old on Wednesday after Bruce had 64 catches for 851 yards and five TDs last season.

Personally I do not care that Michael Sam is gay or that he and his BF Vito Cammisano kissed, I care that those who spoke out in opposition of have been crucified.

(ESPN) –MIAMI – The Miami Dolphins have fined second-year defensive back Don Jones an undisclosed amount and excused [suspended -VH] him from the team following critical remarks towards Michael Sam, who recently became the first openly gay athlete drafted by the NFL. Jones took to Twitter Saturday soon after Sam was drafted and tweeted “OMG” and “horrible.” He later deleted those tweets. Jones met with the Dolphins’ brass about his comments Sunday before the team ruled on his punishment. He must undergo educational training before he can return to the Dolphins, according to the team.

Fact:

If ‘born this way’ homosexuals have the right to be disgusted by opposite-sex sex (and you know they all are to some degree)then ‘born this way’ heterosexuals have the right to be disgusted by same-sex sex. It is the only logical (and fair) conclusion thanks to the entire ‘born this way’ argument.

As human beings homosexual activists are as multifaceted as their fellow heterosexual human beings. They have hopes, dreams and fears. They enjoy their favorite pastimes and hobbies. Yet they chose to reduce themselves to the fact that they participate in same-sex sex.

Homosexual activist bullies wield their sexuality as a weapon against all opposition. But their adversary is not the opposition of homosexuality, their adversary is free speech. Jack booted thought control thugs marching under the banner of tolerance and equality, which couldn’t be further from the truth/goal.

Forced acceptance under fear of strict repercussion has zero to do with tolerance and equality and everything to do with authoritarian repression.

The Miami Dolphins have set a dangerous homosexual teflon precedent affecting the entire NFL. Will all future criticism coming from NFL players and journalists alike of Michael Sam’s performance be deemed as nothing short of homophobia. And God forbid the St. Louis Rams become disenchanted with Sam’s playing skills and make the business minded transaction of cutting him from the team –because OMG that would be an intolerable horrible act of homophobia! What of the teammate who cringes at the thought of sharing a locker room with a teammate who lusts after men and is repulsed by that fact???

SecState Hillary Clinton Refused To Designate Boko Haram As Terrorist Group

May 8, 2014 at 9:47 am

Dereliction of duty and rank hypocrisy (after the fact).

(The Daily Beast) –Under Hillary Clinton, the State Department repeatedly declined to fully go after the terror group responsible for kidnapping hundreds of girls.

The State Department under Hillary Clinton fought hard against placing the al Qaeda-linked militant group Boko Haram on its official list of foreign terrorist organizations for two years. And now, lawmakers and former U.S. officials are saying that the decision may have hampered the American government’s ability to confront the Nigerian group that shocked the world by abducting hundreds of innocent girls.In the past week, Clinton, who made protecting women and girls a key pillar of her tenure at the State Department, has been a vocal advocate for the 200 Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram, the loosely organized group of militants terrorizing northern Nigeria. Her May 4 tweet about the girls, using the hashtag #BringOurGirlsBack, was cited across the media and widely credited for raising awareness of their plight.

killary bring our girls back tweet

On Wednesday, Clinton said that the abduction of the girls by Boko Haram was “abominable, it’s criminal, it’s an act of terrorism and it really merits the fullest response possible, first and foremost from the government of Nigeria.” Clinton said that as Secretary of State she had numerous meetings with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan and had urged the Nigerian government to do more on counterterrorism.

What Clinton didn’t mention was that her own State Department refused to place Boko Haram on the list of foreign terrorist organizations in 2011, after the group bombed the U.N. headquarters in Abuja. The refusal came despite the urging of the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, and over a dozen senators and congressmen.

“The one thing she could have done, the one tool she had at her disposal, she didn’t use. And nobody can say she wasn’t urged to do it. It’s gross hypocrisy,” said a former senior U.S. official who was involved in the debate. “The FBI, the CIA, and the Justice Department really wanted Boko Haram designated, they wanted the authorities that would provide to go after them, and they voiced that repeatedly to elected officials.”

Mozilla; masters of Orwellian doublespeak:

Mozilla’s statement on Brendan Eich’s ouster:

Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves.

We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better.

Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He’s made this decision for Mozilla and our community.

Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.

Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all.

We have employees with a wide diversity of views. Our culture of openness extends to encouraging staff and community to share their beliefs and opinions in public. This is meant to distinguish Mozilla from most organizations and hold us to a higher standard. But this time we failed to listen, to engage, and to be guided by our community.

While painful, the events of the last week show exactly why we need the web. So all of us can engage freely in the tough conversations we need to make the world better.

We need to put our focus back on protecting that Web. And doing so in a way that will make you proud to support Mozilla.

What’s next for Mozilla’s leadership is still being discussed. We want to be open about where we are in deciding the future of the organization and will have more information next week. However, our mission will always be to make the Web more open so that humanity is stronger, more inclusive and more just: that’s what it means to protect the open Web.

We will emerge from this with a renewed understanding and humility — our large, global, and diverse community is what makes Mozilla special, and what will help us fulfill our mission. We are stronger with you involved.

Thank you for sticking with us.

3. And yet Sam Yagan made a $500 donation to U.S. Congressman Chris Cannon in 2004.

And he supported a constitutional amendment defining marriage as man/woman only.

UPDATE: Left leaning Mother Jones reports on OKCupid’s hypocrisy.

Of course, it’s been a decade since Yagan’s donation to Cannon, and a decade or more since many of Cannon’s votes on gay rights. It’s possible that Cannon’s opinions have shifted, or maybe his votes were more politics than ideology; a tactic by the Mormon Rep. to satisfy his Utah constituency. It’s also quite possible that Yagan’s politics have changed since 2004: He donated to Barack Obama’s campaign in 2007 and 2008. Perhaps even Firefox’s Eich has rethought LGBT equality since his 2008 donation. But OkCupid didn’t include any such nuance in its take-down of Firefox. Combine that with the fact that the company helped force out one tech CEO for something its own CEO also did, and its action last week starts to look more like a PR stunt than an impassioned act of protest. (Mother Jones reached out to OkCupid for comment: We’ll update this post if we receive a response.)
