There has been an increase in terrorism activities in light of the President of the US visiting Indonesia.

A young Indonesian girl wants him dead or alive,

This is their hero,

These pictures show the violence of these people! Chopping of heads and what not in somewhat a way of life, more of a way of their religion. Some of the pictures are between tribal clashes but the rest are between Christian and Muslim. And who might be the victim…..? Remember the three Christian school girls who were unarmed and defenseless?

Why with the fascination of chopping of heads and than parading it? Not only in Iraq but in Indonesia as well.

Notice the modern background – tar roads, brick houses, modern bikes, modern clothes, etc. It seems to be in a modern civilization accept for ……..

That is a young boy! Why? Again we see the murder of a young and defenseless person in the hands of who else…… Everyone else seems to be OK about it. What civilization is this?

Machete Wielding Motorcyclists Kill Woman with Baby

Motorcyclists wielding machetes have attacked Christians in Donggala Regency, Central Sulawesi, leaving one dead and five injured.

Motorcyclists wielding machetes have attacked Christians in Donggala Regency, Central Sulawesi, leaving one dead and five injured. On Thursday evening, 11 March, four men riding on two motorcycles sped through the village of Maranatha, 18 miles south of the regional capital Palu, leaving death and bloodshed in their wake. Nuci, a 40 year old mother of two, died two hours after receiving fatal injuries to her head, neck and back. A witness to the incident described how she heard the roar of the motorbikes, followed almost immediately by a baby’s screams. She ran towards the cries and found Nuci, bleeding to death and crawling towards her baby. The attackers wounded five others, who were Efrain, 30, Kanus, 30, Kalfin, 25, Pianus, 18, and Listin, 17 (many Indonesians have just one name).

The situation in the village is still tense, but no further incidents have been recorded. Hundreds of villagers are now standing on guard with machetes, spears and hand-made guns. The dead woman’s relatives have called on the police to respond decisively as they fear that this is the start of another round of anti-Christian attacks.

On Monday 15 March, five suspected members of Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) were convicted on charges of terrorism in Palu District Court. Three of them, described as key local JI members, were jailed for six years, while the others received sentences of five and three years. JI has been blamed for the Bali bombings and widespread church bombings on Christmas Eve 2000.

While the district court in Palu has upheld justice, the same cannot be said concerning a recent decision in Indonesia’s Supreme Court. The court upheld an August 2002 decision to acquit five army officers of their suspected role in the massacre of 200 Christians in a church. The attack, in which three church ministers were also killed, took place in East Timor on 6 September 1999. Human Rights Watch has called on the UN to investigate the failure of the courts to reach a conviction.

Remember this three Christian ladies who are on trial? They were convicted for converting children. Can you imagine yourself being in the court room with these jihadists shouting for your death?

oh,……. and the Laskar Jihad wants to eliminate the Christians from the region.

If you are a Muslim reading this, please consider the love and mercy of Jesus Christ which is revealed in the true word of God – the Holy Bible. There will be a judgment awaiting all mankind. The only way of escape from that terrifying Day is to be clothed with the righteousness of Jesus Christ from His atoning sacrifice.

And if you are a Christian reading this, if you are not proclaiming Christ you are sinning. Repent and get back to the work of proclamation.

Abortion

It is interesting to note that while Animal Right Activists are adamant about protecting the rights of the animals, they have no problem supporting Pro-Death. Why is it alright to defend the rights of an animal but not for a baby?

(PART I CAN BE READ HERE)

PART II: MULESING SHEEP OR FACING A CRUEL DEATH

When we look at Proverbs 12:10 again,

 

A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal,
but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.

 

We see a Biblical basis for stewardship and owning animals, something the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) might not necessarily agree with. In stating that “a righteous man cares for the need of his animals”, note that the animal is identified as “his”. To state it another way, the animal that is taken cared for is owned and possessed by the righteous man. It belongs to the man. And one who is righteous would take care of his animals in a biblical display of stewardship.

23336__41302927_sheep203.jpg

At times it appears that PETA have an agenda to chip away man’s dominion of domesticated animals even at the price of cruelty to the domesticated animal itself.

 

An ongoing (as of August 2006) media saavy campaign that PETA has been engaged in lately has been focused on a boycott against the Australian sheep industry. The large campaign targeting the practice of what is popularly called mulesing has effectively gotten Timberland and Abercrombie & Fitch to forsake their business dealings with the Australian sheep businesses. A campaign with threats of boycotts, pictures of bleeding sheeps and emotionally provocative slogans would move most people to be concerned about the plight of what these Australian sheep go through with the process of Mulesing. Mulesing is depicted as cruel and despicable torture, part of a larger industry’s senseless violence. But what is the purpose of this painful infliction called Mulesing in which the flesh of a sheep’s anal area is torn away? Is there a reason that Mulesing is performed? And how is it done?

 

What surprise it was to discover that Mulesing is actually done for the health and good of the sheep!

 

First off to begin with, we must deal with the description of it being some deep, harmful cut into the sheep.

 

In a one page flyer ad released by PETA titled, “The Six Myths of Mulesing”, it described as a myth the idea that “Mulesing isn’t that bad—it’s just a little skin off the rump.[i] It then proceeded to give the fact but in doing so it never addressed the issue or marshal in any evidence that only a little skin off the rump is taken. When we look at a 1996 (eight years before PETA’s boycott began by the way) document printed by the Western Australian Department of Agriculture that provided instruction in Mulesing for sheep herder, we discover that the mulesing involves shallow cuts.[ii]

 

In that same Australian government document, we also discover the reason behind the practice of Mulesing: “Mulesing to control fly strike in sheep is common practice in Western Australia.”[iii]

 

What is a ‘fly strike’? We learn elsewhere what ‘fly strike’ is:

“Australia is home to a nasty species of fly (the blowfly) that reproduces by laying eggs in wet wool, particularly around wounds or in healthy but damp areas soiled by feces and urine. When the eggs hatch, the maggots literally eat into the flesh of the sheep and feed for several days — a condition known as “flystrike” — before falling off onto the ground to pupate and become mature insects, starting the cycle anew.”[iv]

And its devastating effect:

“This parasitic maggot infestation — which partially eats the infected animal alive — is not only agonizing, but releases toxins causing afflicted sheep to die lingering and terrible deaths.”[v]

Mulesing protects the sheep because “when the cuts heal, the natural bare area around the vulva and anus is stretched and enlarged. This reduces dampness caused by sweating, urine and faecal staining, and so minimizes susceptibility to flystrike.”[vi]

 

You would think that PETA would be in support of something that would protect sheeps from literally being eaten alive in a cruel way. What a surprise to discover their boycott based upon this procedure!

 

Of course, there are followers of PETA who pursue the boycott sincerely thinking it is for the betterment of the sheep because it brings pain to these sheep. However, in the same way a surgery can be painful and is performed for the benefit of saving lives (and for the care of a patient) then in the same way the pain that the sheep goes through is far greater than dying such a painful death as it would suffering from a ‘flystrike’.

 

Wikipedia list several other alternative to Mulesing:

  • topical protein-based treatments
  • selective breeding
  • organic insecticides
  • biological control of blowflies
  • application of plastic clips to sheep’s skin folds[vii]

Yet as Wikipedia stated, “So far, no alternative method has proved satisfactory and acceptable”, providing reasons such as “The eradication of the strike fly is not a viable alternative”, and “Breeding alternatives are very slow, even if GMO techniques are allowed (which is unlikely)”.[viii] By the time one breeds a survivable sheep breed (assuming it would succeed), many sheeps would have died tragically in the process. Further, medication for the sheep does not exist at this time, as Australian Wool industry is still researching a vaccine or insecticide treatments to protect sheep against flystrike.[ix] Observing PETA in light of Proverbs 12:10, we have to indeed be saddened to note how the kindest, sincere act of PETA can be very cruel to the very animals that it originally sought to protect.

VIDEO

This is pretty funny, Yet the actual debate might have been like this, with how the guys at Liberty behave Some of my favorite line in this short was how “Canner” talks just like Cranner in his hand motion I also thought it was funny, how “Canner” talked about his glamour shot…and saying Calvin was not Calvinist, etc

Did anybody notice that “Witt” was wearing a short? Perhaps in lacking a kilt, they had “Whitt” wear a short instead, reminds me of a Christian apologist I know…
