Women Spearheading Booming Christian Movement in Iran, Despite Persecution
According to Richardson, the number of Christians is growing by 20-percent a year in Iran. This, despite the fact that the Iranian government is engaged in a systematic, ongoing effort to erase Christianity. (Iranian law specifies the death sentence for proselytizing and attempts by non-Muslims to convert Muslims.) Richardson said the people in Iran are broken and receptive to the gospel. The country is facing an economic crisis. Drug addiction and joblessness are rampant. But women are especially open to the gospel because so many of them are being abused. In addition, Islam doesn’t exactly offer the hope of paradise for women. (The Koran describes the afterlife as a place where men are given virgins for their enjoyment. And some of the hadiths, or collections of the sayings and actions of Muhammad describe heaven as a ‘slave market where there will be ‘no buy and sale, but… If any man will wish to have sexual intercourse with a woman, he will do at once.’”)
Bethel affirms LGBTQX perversions. If you are surprised then I’m surprised that you are surprised. They are so awful.
African Who Savaged Australian Policewomen Plans to Play Race Card — Gee, where did he learn that?
One of the officers suffered ligament damage in her neck. Both endured trauma. Following his arrest, he threatened to hunt the women down and kill them with their own guns, reported the Herald Sun. This has understandably caused the officers continuing anxiety. Dut has been in custody for a year and four months, but is confident he’ll be free to walk to streets again because he’s Kenyan-born with dark skin. ‘I will get away with anything because I’m black. I will play the race card,’ he told police.
Journalist tests Walmart on gun sales. Hilarity ensues.
To the credit of this Business Insider reporter, she reaches the appropriate conclusion of her quixotic adventure, which turned out quite differently than she expected. “Walmart takes gun sales and security pretty seriously,” she concludes.
Mass Shooter in Atlanta Was Black, Woke Evangelicals Silent — I’m sure they just forgot about it.
Contagion, cont’d: Marriott cook latest to get arrested in nationwide wave — This just shows how complicit the media is in the Left’s gun-grabbing passion. If they really wanted to reduce shootings they’d cover them differently. But they don’t want to reduce shootings. They love the shootings, as it gives them a reason to grab the guns of law-abiding people.
And yes, note how this guy had quite the arsenal in gun-restricted California. Ask the gun-grabbing Leftists how they reconcile open borders with their “no guns” fantasy. And ask them why they don’t pressure the media to cover the shooting differently. If they really wanted to reduce shootings that’s exactly what they’d do.
How to Fall . . . Again — Good advice to fallen pastors. Unfortunately, those types won’t read it, because they are too busy working their way back into ministry (Driscoll, Tchividjian, MacDonald et al couldn’t be reached for comment).
Colleges Creates AI to Identify Hate Speech and Finds Black Americans Are the Worst Offenders. Emphasis added below. Shocking, eh?
You really don’t need an AI to figure this out unless you’re blinded by political correctness, it’s obvious. Oh wait — they are blinded by political correctness, A new study out of Cornell reveals that the machine learning practices behind AI, which are designed to flag offensive online content, may actually “discriminate against the groups who are often the targets of the abuse we are trying to detect,” according to the study abstract. The study involved researchers training a system to flag tweets containing “hate speech,” in much the same way that other universities are developing systems for eventual online use, by using several databases of tweets, some of which had been flagged by human evaluators for offensive content. “The results show evidence of systematic racial bias in all datasets, as classifiers trained on them tend to predict that tweets written in African-American English are abusive at substantially higher rates. If these abusive language detection systems are used in the field they will, therefore, have a disproportionate negative impact on African-American social media users,” the abstract continues.

Good round up; concerning the article about Iran, I pray for a Christian revival in Iran and God would protect those believers
