    Around the world, Christians are targeted for persecution and martyrdom, something that is developing even in the United States. But even as church leaders increasingly are on guard against threats of murderous violence, experts warn they may be ignoring a far more common threat – sexual assault against congregants. “Sexual assaults taking place on church property is an epidemic in our nation,” Carl Gallups told WND. “The reasons for it are numerous (and sometimes complex), but the main problem is that most churches have an abysmal lack of adequate security measures. While many churches are concerned about the growing trend...

    End The War on Freedom ^ | June 18, 2003 | Bill St. Clair
    A friend of mine recently forwarded me a question a friend of his had posed: "If/when our Federal Government comes to pilfer, pillage, plunder our property and destroy our lives, what good can a handgun do against an army with advanced weaponry, tanks, missiles, planes, or whatever else they might have at their disposal to achieve their nefarious goals? (I'm not being facetious: I accept the possibility that what happened in Germany, or similar, could happen here; I'm just not sure that the potential good from an armed citizenry in such a situation outweighs the day-to-day problems caused by masses...

    Subject: Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs Miss Edwards, I read of your 'student activity' regarding the proposed memorial to Col Greg Boyington, USMC and a Medal of Honor winner. I suspect you will receive a bellyful of angry e-mails from conservative folks like me. You may be too young to appreciate fully the sacrifices of generations of servicemen and servicewomen on whose shoulders you and your fellow students stand. I forgive you for the untutored ways of youth and your naïveté. It may be that you are, simply, a sheep. There's no dishonor in being a sheep - - as long...

    Dog in coma after saving owner from deadly snake    A young Kelpie named Tess is being hailed a lifesaver after defending its owner from a deadly brown snake on the Gold Coast. However the heroic pet only has a 50-50 chance of survival after being bitten by the giant reptile. Fay Palethorpe, a 68-year-old retiree from Ingleside, was gardening on her 8 hectare property on Sunday morning when she came face to face with the biggest brown snake she'd ever seen. She says it was huge, over two metres long and reared up into the air and struck...

    Jill Edwards is one of the students at the University of Washington who did not want to honor Medal of Honor winner USMC Colonel Greg Boyington because she does not think those who serve in the U.S. Armed services are good role models. I think that this response is an excellent and thought provoking response. General Dula is a Retired Air Force Lt Gen (3 Star Gen). Gen. Dula's letter to the University of Washington student senate leader.

    Baby girl bitten at dog amusement park ARAO, Kumamoto -- A baby girl required nine stitches after being attacked and bitten by an Old English Sheepdog at an amusement park for dogs here, police said. Operators of the Kyushu WanWan Okoku are being investigated for in a possible case of professional negligence resulting in injury. "We're terribly sorry," park operator Ichiro Futatsugi said. "We are going to have to be really careful about the type of breed and character of the dogs that we allow in the enclosure from now on." Police said the 1-year-old girl bitten in the attack...
