Sunday November 9th 2008

Over 160,000,000 of our brothers and sisters are REALLY being persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ our God all over the world. I beg of of you to not just pray for them on this day but pray for them everyday. Pray to God to give them heat if they are cold, pray to God to give them a cool breeze in extreme heat, pray to God to give them courage if they are afraid etc....

This site kinda bothers me..

one of their articles are about a woman named Asia Bibi from Pakistan. She is visible on a site looking for loans for her husband's used computer business. This one has 5 children not two although only two (a boy and a girl) are in the picture. and I can't find any Pakistani news reports of what is said on that website... here is the link to the "real" Asia Bibi - Kiva - Asia Bibi

And the persecuted Christian one... Persecution.com

Another report shows a kid expelled for being a christian...

But the real story isn't really about persecution.

School Party secretary Sun Fu said Chen's Christian beliefs were incompatible with his membership in the Communist Party Youth League.
"He is a member of the League and an official in the student assembly," Sun said.

"We just wanted him to write an ideological report recognizing the problem, because he acts on behalf of the Party in the League."
"That is an atheist organization," Sun said.

An injustice perhaps but persecution? and it only shows up on certain sites not mainstream at all... only those who are taking donations or that hate china....

Persecution.com shows another story about West Jarkata (sic) mayors office building where students were evicted in Oct. 2009.. Persecution.com

But Reuters reports an earthquake there that damaged the building in Sept 2009.. so how did they live there? Reuters AlertNet - Strong Indonesia quake kills 35, damages 1,300 homes

There is no excuse for this type of craaaaap in my opinion.
