I followed and did a few updates on Rifqa Bary the runaway teen who feared being a honor killing statistic, because of her conversion to Christianity while still a minor in her Muslim parent’s home. When I learned about Rifqa’s situation around this time last year, I prayed that her situation would languish in the courts long enough for her to turned 18. All during that time, she never stepped one foot into her parent’s home and was only in face to face contact with her father in court, lawyer’s offices, and judge’s chambers. Thank you Lord for answering my prayer (and for those who prayed this same prayer) in the affirmative. Rifqa turned 18 a few days ago and is no longer a minor to be legally subjected to her parental authority.
Rifqa just graduated from high school with honors and is dealing with uterine cancer. During her legal fight to get from under her her parent’s authority, it was discovered that her father did not keep up with the family’s immigration status and therefore she and her family members were rendered illegal. The young Ms. Bary is now free to fight possible deportation to her birth country Sri Lanka where her apostasy would have a death sentence waiting for her. All those who know the Lord, please keep Rifqa in your prayers.
Pot Smoking on the Job!
There is a Proposition 19 effort to make Marijuana with its more familiar name, pot legal in California. There are concerns of people coming to work high from early morning smokes in the privacy of homes and/or on the way to work in the car. What becomes of the smoke break during work hours? Think of people going outside their place of work during break and lunch times to smoke pot and what it would be like afterward! I worked a good portion of my adult life in child care classrooms. Would you want someone returning from smoking pot on a break and/or lunch dealing with your infant, toddler or preschool child. Proposition 19 will come to a vote in November.

Democratic Side: Continual love for “F” word Profanity in Promotions
The most foul of language is used by Democrats and liberal left progressives and Republicans and conservatives, but if there was contest for who used it the most, the Democrat side with the liberal left progressives would win the grand prize. They love profanity. A Democrat progressive group, the Agenda Project has launched “F*ck tea” which is another attempt on the left to disparage the TEA Party. They will be launching products such as shirts and mugs with the “F” profanity on them. Remember in the early spring, the DNC launched the selling of the Big F****ing Deal t-shirt? MSNBC’s Chris Matthews proudly held up the t-shirt on his program. What is with the Democrats and the “F”word profanity?
Proposed Mosque Near Ground Zero
President Obama has come down on the pro side of the mosque building near the Ground Zero site. Well that is really not a surprise. I have to agree with basis of his approval which is that Muslims have an equal right to freedom of religion as everyone else in America. There is nothing constitutionally that states any different. But I feel the mosque should be built somewhere else. I feel it is a huge dishonor and the height of insensitivity to the memory of those who lost their lives at the World Trade Center and to their love ones. Feisal Abdul Rauf, the Imam behind this mosque is a proponent of Sharia law being a part of the American fabric. Sharia law is about domination.
“It is crucial to study the supremacist ideology of Islam and to recognize, for example, that the building of a mosque especially at Ground Zero is viewed by Muslims as a decisive victory over the infidels in Islam’s march to establish its ultimate goal: the submission of all others to Islam and to Sharia Law.”
This quote is from Wufa Sultan, an author who was born Muslim, but fights Islamic domination. Read more of what she said against the Groud Zero mosque here. This proposed mosque is going to be a mega size problem.
