wisemen crafted the manipulative stories that democracy equals liberty, man evolved from monkies,
According to a study by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life,[ii] less than 20% followers of these religious groups make more than $75,000 a year. By comparison, 67% of the Reformed Jews, 65% percent Hindus, and 57% Conservative Jews earn more than $75,000/year. The finding that American evangelicals[iii] are poorer than the Roman Catholics surprised Pew Researchers who had thought that the economic miracle of the “modern” age was Protestantism’s fruit.
The study raises questions such as: Has American evangelicalism lost Protestantism’s original DNA? Do American missions still carry the “good news for the poor?” (Luke 4:18) Or, is their success, spectacular in some countries, a tribute to the original and still-lingering image of Protestantism? Why did Christianity lose the power that gave it influence over education and economy, government and law, press and entertainment? How can the Church recover the power to prevail over the forces of evil?
President Obama has conceded that unjust invasion of Libya was his Presidency's worst mistake. His desire to replace Gaddaffi's dictatorship with democratic freedom plunged that oil rich nation into a terrible civil war. Various militias, including the Islamic State, are controlling splintered parts of that nation. A man may not be able to feed his children but he has to obtain a gun to defend them - law and order, peace, security, jobs have disappeared. A winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace, President Obama is yet to repent of spending 500 milion dollars of tax-payers money to train and arm Syrian militias that are making millions homeless.
Tony Blair, UK's former Prime Minister, has confessed that supporting President George Bush's unjust war in Iraq to depose Saddam Hussain was a terrible mistake. It did usher in constitution, election, and democracy .... But not liberty and peace. A 'Born-Again' President's aggression based on the story of non-existent weapons of mass destruction (WMD's) has fragmented that nation, plunging it into multiple civil wars. It created the monstrosity called the Islamic State. President Bush is yet to repent of the stories his administration fed to the global media to justify the unjust war.


A group of about 40 Hindu extremists in a Pentecostal Christian Assembly stormed during a prayer meeting,

New Delhi (Agenzia Fides) - A group of about 40 Hindu extremists in a Pentecostal Christian Assembly stormed during a prayer meeting, interrupting the worship, threatening the faithful and seizing Bibles: as reported to Fides by the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC), the incident took place last Sunday, April 3, in Kawardha district in the Indian state of Chattisgarh.
Sajan K George, president of the GCIC told Fides: "Chattisgarh has earned a record of infamy for radicals who illegally suppress religious freedom. Last month alone 25 extremists beat men, women and children and a church was vandalized, in Raipur district".


Middle East Christians will keep wary eye during Easter

Middle East (MNN) — As churches across the U.S. prepare services, celebrations, and potlucks for the Easter weekend, others are celebrating resurrection weekend, but with a wary eye toward the front door.
“Easter Sunday here, we’re worried about where we’re going to park or who is coming to lunch,” Doyle said. “Believers in the Middle East are consumed with, ‘Am I going to be alive on Monday.’”
Last year, 148 Christian students at Garissa University were killed in the week before Easter. Though the group leaders later cited the reason for the carnage as retribution for Kenya’s incursion into Somalia to fight militants, the suicidal gunmen seemed to have a motive other than a political one. The gunmen separated the Muslim students from the non-Muslim and reportedly taunted those they were about to kill: “We don’t fear death; this will be a good Easter holiday for us.”

New Delhi (Agenzia Fides) - Christians in India are asking the government for the protection of churches and safety, in view of the Easter celebrations. As reported, in a statement sent to Fides, the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC), say that "protection is necessary during Holy Week", given that "violence against individual Christians and churches continues unabated in different parts of India".
In March 2016 the GCIC has recorded numerous attacks against Christians, such as the one against Pastor Keshava, brutally hit by militants of the Hindu extremist groups near Jaipura in Karnataka. One recalls that a newly built church was vandalized in Coimbatore in Tamilnadu, while bibles and holy books were set on fire in front of the grotto dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima, built in Pune.
