‘WE’RE BACK’: Police revisit Calgary church

Earlier in April, five police officers and one health official showed up at a Church in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on Good Friday for a COVID lockdown inspection but were driven out by its pastor, Artur Pawlowski, who was from Poland and has lived through communism. Well, the police returned again this past Sunday with more officers, you can’t have too many armed officers when dealing with an unarmed pastor, and a health inspector claiming she had a warrant.

The looming police shortage in America?

Antifa, Black Lives Matter, left-wing anarchists, murders, rapists, drug dealers and criminals are rejoicing with news that the ‘defund police’ movement has worked. Not only have city councils slashed police budgets, but officers are leaving police forces in droves, and the number of people applying to fill the empty positions is at its lowest levels ever.

Study: Social distancing doesn’t work

Throughout COVID, governments having been pounding out the propaganda that people need to social distance, separate ourselves from others by at least six feet. Now research by two professors at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has concluded social distancing does not work. When it comes to the spread of COVID, it makes no difference if people are six feet a part or 60 feet a part.

500 scientists in US connected with other governments?

The National Institute of Health (NIH) recently issued a warning that there are over 500 scientists working in over 200 research institutions in the US who may have connections with other foreign countries such as China. The warning was issued because many of these individuals are involved in research projects subsidized by the US government and may be sharing research with foreign governments. The Western Journal reports: The announcement was made Thursday by Michael Lauer, the NIH deputy director for extramural research, during a hearing before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions aimed at protecting U.S. biomedical research, the Washington Examiner reported. “I think one big problem, senators, is that the threat is significant,” Lauer said in the hearing. “We have identified over 500 scientists of concern. … Each of these require a tremendous amount of work to figure out what exactly has been happening and to work carefully with the institution to figure out what’s going on.” We’ve seen scientists who have told their American institutions and the NIH that they’re spending 100 percent of their time …

Is Christianity being criminalized around the world?

Several faith leaders in Ireland are suggesting that the government is trying to criminalize Christianity after its health minister, Stephan Donnelly, signed a ban outlawing church services. But it was more than just a ban, in the process, the Irish government made it a criminal offence for a church to hold in person services, with leaders and even those attending a service facing potential jail time of six months. It is one thing to fine someone, but it is entirely a different matter to imprison them. Whether it was intentional or not, the government basically criminalized Christian activity. In an interview with Premier Christian News, John Ahern, who pastors All Nations Church in Dublin, Ireland, said: “This ongoing lockdown is indefensible. The government passed a law that criminalises religious gatherings so to either organise or to attend a religious service has now become a criminal offense in the Republic of Ireland, and for myself as a pastor the situation’s become untenable. I cannot in good conscience continue in this situation, knowing and seeing the damage …

An Eye for Eye is not what it seems

A recent story out of Iran exposes one of the biggest misconceptions that people have about the Old Testament law. The Daily Mail reports that five Iranian men are facing the prospect of having their fingers cut off after being accused of theft. Under the Islamic code, amputation is considered suitable punishment for theft in cases where the stolen goods are not recovered. In this instance, the five are charged with burgling over 22 houses. The International Observatory of Human Rights reports that over the past 20 years, there has been at least 129 instances of finger amputation in the country. And it’s not just fingers, depending on the crime people can even have their hands amputated. In 2015, a horrific story emerged of a ISIS militants in Iraq filling a man full of drugs before using a meat cleaver to cut off his hand. Though we consider this barbaric, many are quick to point out that the Old Testament law has a similar eye for eye punishment system. Where people could have their eyes …
