Cuba, Christians and Haiti the world keeps turning

If you fol­lowed the blogs you likely didn’t think that any­thing else was going on except for blam­ing Sarah Palin for Ari­zona but there are a few things going on that you should know:

Item: Europe con­tin­ues it’s post Chris­t­ian Path:

If you think Pope Bene­dict XVI and other Chris­t­ian denom­i­na­tions are lying about how Europe is sec­u­lar­iz­ing, as well as shun­ning specif­i­cally Chris­tian­ity, this should be proof.

The three mil­lion copies of the 20112012 school cal­en­dar pub­lished by the Euro­pean Union has omit­ted Chris­t­ian hol­i­days, while con­tin­u­ing to note impor­tant Jew­ish and Mus­lim celebrations.

While Chris­t­ian hol­i­days such as Christ­mas and Easter are miss­ing from the calendar’s pages, days com­mem­o­rat­ing “Sikh Baisakhi-​Day, the Jew­ish Yom Kip­pur hol­i­day, the Mus­lim hol­i­day Aid-​el-​Kebir,” remain in place,”

Europe is still stung by Anti-​Semitic slaugh­ter and Mus­lims are the fastest grow­ing pop­u­la­tion in the area so they can’t be offended. Chris­tians, who cares.

Item: Iraq con­tin­ues its own “post Chris­t­ian era” that being more of a Post Chris­t­ian being alive” era: (warn­ing very graphic pho­tos of slaughter)

This Assyr­ian Catholic church was taken over by jihadis, and dur­ing the course of the sev­eral hours dur­ing which they con­trolled the church, the insur­gents killed many of the wor­ship­pers, until the Iraqi army forces finally stormed the building.

I have been view­ing reports from sur­vivors of the mas­sacre, posted on YouTube (here, here and here). From these, and ear­lier pub­lished reports (e.g. here), a pic­ture emerges of the jihadis as reli­giously moti­vated peo­ple who engaged their vic­tims in the­o­log­i­cal con­ver­sa­tions about Islam, and jus­ti­fied their actions based on the Islamic sharia.

And the fun for Chris­tians con­tin­ues in Pak­istan too:

A day after the two got into an argu­ment, the Mus­lim woman walked out onto the street and started shout­ing that her sister-​in-​law had abused the Holy Prophet (pbuh).

A short while later, a group of men forced their way into the house and started slap­ping the Chris­t­ian woman, said another of her brothers.

Other men and women from the neigh­bour­hood started gath­er­ing at the house too and they beat up my sis­ter and mother. They were the only peo­ple in the house,” he added.

A par­tic­i­pant in the beat­ing said that the women’s faces were black­ened, and that they were made to wear neck­laces of shoes and paraded around the local­ity on don­keys to humil­i­ate them. The women denied blas­phem­ing and repeat­edly touched their feet, seek­ing mercy, he added.

I’m sure fem­i­nists in the west will make strong objec­tions to this kind of thing some­day before I die. Of course when they do the shock will likely kill me.
Item: Don’t call him a social­ist but Obama is try­ing to bail out the Castro’s in Cuba.

A senior Obama offi­cial told The Miami Her­ald the much-​expected move to expand cul­tural, reli­gious and edu­ca­tional travel to Cuba is part of the administration’s con­tin­u­ing “effort to sup­port the Cuban people’s desire to freely deter­mine their own future.

Pres­i­dent Barack Obama is also restor­ing the amount of money ($2,000) that can be sent to non­fam­ily mem­bers to the level they were at dur­ing part of the Clin­ton and Bush administrations.

As Val Pri­eto said Cuba’s #1 export is peo­ple gen­er­at­ing money to send back. This is get­ting very lit­tle notice out­side of Babalu Blog, but now you know about it.

Item: In the mid­dle of a post whose real point is faith The Anchoress informs us the UN shows how it’s (not) done in Haiti:

The UN com­plied. As it turns out, the local aid orga­ni­za­tions took the free food that came in from all over the world and were not sell­ing it; they were hoard­ing it in order to sell it. But the peo­ple, for the most part, had no money to buy it with. The Hait­ian gov­ern­ment is so cor­rupt and I’m sure they’re in cahoots with the local dis­tri­b­u­tion orga­ni­za­tions. Some­one will get rich off the backs of the poor, and many will die for some­one else’s greed.

The day that actual hon­est peo­ple are in charge in Haiti it will be a gift from God.

The world keeps turn­ing no mat­ter what we’re focus­ing on.

If you followed the blogs you likely didn’t think that anything else was going on except for blaming Sarah Palin for Arizona but there are a few things going on that you should know:

Item: Europe continues it’s post Christian Path:

If you think Pope Benedict XVI and other Christian denominations are lying about how Europe is secularizing, as well as shunning specifically Christianity, this should be proof.

The three million copies of the 2011-2012 school calendar published by the European Union has omitted Christian holidays, while continuing to note important Jewish and Muslim celebrations.

While Christian holidays such as Christmas and Easter are missing from the calendar’s pages, days commemorating “Sikh Baisakhi-Day, the Jewish Yom Kippur holiday, the Muslim holiday Aid-el-Kebir,” remain in place,”

Europe is still stung by Anti-Semitic slaughter and Muslims are the fastest growing population in the area so they can’t be offended. Christians, who cares.

Item: Iraq continues its own “post Christian era” that being more of a Post Christian being alive” era: (warning very graphic photos of slaughter)

This Assyrian Catholic church was taken over by jihadis, and during the course of the several hours during which they controlled the church, the insurgents killed many of the worshippers, until the Iraqi army forces finally stormed the building.

I have been viewing reports from survivors of the massacre, posted on YouTube (here, here and here). From these, and earlier published reports (e.g. here), a picture emerges of the jihadis as religiously motivated people who engaged their victims in theological conversations about Islam, and justified their actions based on the Islamic sharia.

And the fun for Christians continues in Pakistan too:

A day after the two got into an argument, the Muslim woman walked out onto the street and started shouting that her sister-in-law had abused the Holy Prophet (pbuh).

A short while later, a group of men forced their way into the house and started slapping the Christian woman, said another of her brothers.

“Other men and women from the neighbourhood started gathering at the house too and they beat up my sister and mother. They were the only people in the house,” he added.

A participant in the beating said that the women’s faces were blackened, and that they were made to wear necklaces of shoes and paraded around the locality on donkeys to humiliate them. The women denied blaspheming and repeatedly touched their feet, seeking mercy, he added.

I’m sure feminists in the west will make strong objections to this kind of thing someday before I die. Of course when they do the shock will likely kill me.
Item: Don’t call him a socialist but Obama is trying to bail out the Castro’s in Cuba.

A senior Obama official told The Miami Herald the much-expected move to expand cultural, religious and educational travel to Cuba is part of the administration’s continuing “effort to support the Cuban people’s desire to freely determine their own future.

President Barack Obama is also restoring the amount of money ($2,000) that can be sent to nonfamily members to the level they were at during part of the Clinton and Bush administrations.

As Val Prieto said Cuba’s #1 export is people generating money to send back. This is getting very little notice outside of Babalu Blog, but now you know about it.

Item: In the middle of a post whose real point is faith The Anchoress informs us the UN shows how it’s (not) done in Haiti:

The UN complied. As it turns out, the local aid organizations took the free food that came in from all over the world and were not selling it; they were hoarding it in order to sell it. But the people, for the most part, had no money to buy it with. The Haitian government is so corrupt and I’m sure they’re in cahoots with the local distribution organizations. Someone will get rich off the backs of the poor, and many will die for someone else’s greed.

The day that actual honest people are in charge in Haiti it will be a gift from God.

The world keeps turning no matter what we’re focusing on.
