Since about 2009 when U.S. public-schools started introducing Islamic-related lesson plans into their curricula, there has been no corresponding instruction on Christianity, its major religious tenets or the positive impact it has had on Western civilization.
A big legal battle is heating up over a proposed mega-mosque in Sterling Heights, Michigan, and regardless of the outcome longtime residents say some in this city’s divided immigrant community are going to feel slighted.
On one side is the mayor, Michael C. Taylor, fighting for the Muslims and their right to build a massive mosque right smack dab in the middle of the nation’s largest Chaldean Christian refugee community.
On the other side are the Christian refugees. They say they feel like their rights are once again being seen as second fiddle to the Muslims, just as they were back home in Iraq.
The American Islamic Community Center wants to build a 20,500-square-foot mosque on 4.3 acres along 15 Mile Road in Sterling Heights, a suburb north of Detroit. This is a residential area dotted by hundreds of modest homes inhabited by Christians who fled Iraq and other countries where Muslims persecute followers of Christ.
They came to Sterling Heights in search of refuge. Now some are wondering if that was a mistake.
As you all know by now, our lives were turned upside down a few weeks ago when doctors told us that my wife Marty’s breast cancer had returned and this time there was no treatment option other than the one every woman fears, mastectomy.
They will also take a lymph node to determine if the cancer has spread. The devastating news was compounded by the fact that, as independent freelance writers, the only health insurance we can afford is a bare-bones policy with a high deductible. Our portion of the biopsy and surgery alone was estimated at $7,000 and the hospital requested at least one-third of that up front before the surgery on May 7.
A feeling of desperation and helplessness settled over us. I did the only thing I knew to do. I put out an appeal to you, my readers, on this website. You can read it here.
This will not be your normal post from me. Nor will it be an easy one to write.
As you know, I am working on a second book, one which I believe will strike a dagger into the heart of the globalist movement’s drive to deceive many Christians into accepting the coming one-world government supported by a one-world religion.
My wonderful wife Marty, without whose help in editing I would not have been able to bring my first book, Stealth Invasion, to press, is not doing well. She has had an on-and-off battle with cancer for the last five years, and about three weeks ago we received a double dose of bad news.
With astonishing speed and amazing efficiency, the French government declared early Tuesday morning that the fire which had largely consumed the magnificent, 850-year-old Cathedral of Notre Dame was a mere “accident.”
That’s right: Before investigators had even been cleared to enter the smoldering ruins of the Western World’s most iconic Christian symbol, they had already ruled out the possibility of arson.
I am not saying that any person or group should be blamed for this fire without proof. What I am saying, is that the French government’s absurdly quick action in determining the fire’s non-cause makes a mockery of the concept of an honest investigation. Such malfeasance in carrying out due diligence could easily backfire.
Without an honest and transparent investigation, people will always look at the burning of Notre Dame as a monumental conspiracy. Fill in the blank as to who you want to make responsible for the devastation because the French eliminated certain possibilities from consideration before even the most basic investigative procedures were employed.
It begs the question: Why were the French so eager to sweep this fire under the rug of history?
