Convert to Islam from UK recruiting jihad suicide bombers to attack popular British tourist hotspots

If British authorities had any concern for the survival of their nation as a free society, they would be studying the combination of factors in British society that led to the trajectory of Samantha Lewthwaite’s life. They would be examining the appeal of Islam to contemporary Britons, the phenomenon of conversion to Islam, why so many converts to Islam turn to treason and mass murder, why British citizens convert so freely to Islam without considering the implications, and related issues. But they wouldn’t dream of doing this. It would be “Islamophobic.”

School Warns Christian Man Not to Distribute Bibles on Street – Michael Foust

An Illinois school district responded to complaints from an atheist organization by warning a Christian citizen he must stop distributing Bibles to students outside on a street.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation had told the school, La Harpe Elementary, that individuals should not be allowed to distribute Bibles and religious materials to students.

“Religion is inherently divisive and has no official place in a public school where staff and young students hold varied beliefs — and no belief at all,” said FFRF co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor. “It’s commendable that the district has investigated and remedied these violations.”

Christian Death Toll Rises to 200 in 4-Day Muslim ‘Killing Spree’ in Nigeria | Breitbart

The death toll of last weekend’s massacre of Nigerian Christians by militant Muslim Fulani herdsmen has risen to at least 200, according to a report released Friday by Open Doors, an organization that monitors Christian persecution.As Breitbart News reported earlier this week, heavily armed gunmen recognized as Fulani herdsmen opened fire on Christians in a number of villages in Plateau State of central Nigeria last weekend, killing scores and injuring hundreds more, as well as burning some 50 homes to the ground.

Most of the victims were returning home from the funeral of the father of a local Christian minister.Despite the evidently religious nature of the slaughter, mainstream media chose to downplay the militant Islamism behind the attacks, preferring to attribute the violence to “ethnic tensions,” a “battle for land and resources,” or even “climate change.”

School Bans Parents From Viewing LGBT Videos Shown to Kids | Todd Starnes

For four days last April students at a Emmaus High School in Pennsylvania were forced to watch videos selected by the “student-led” Gay-Straight Alliance.

The videos ranged from “9 Questions Gay People Have About Straight People” to a compilation of clips celebrating “marriage equality.” There was also a video educating students about gender fluidity – the idea there is no such thing as male or female.

“My son expressed to me that he felt bullied by the administration for being a heterosexual man and being forced to listen to LGBT advocacy on a daily basis,” one parent wrote in a letter to the school district.
