May 1, 2009 - Washington, DC

Obama's Supreme Moment / Kill the Christians' pigs / Who will stop Janet Napolitano's profiling of conservatives? / Thought crimes bill passes the House / Meet the San Francisco cops - is this a joke? / Obama, Catholics and abortion / Harvard chaplain's "death to converts" / More persecution of Egyptian Christians

PETITION TO HILLARY CLINTON ON IRAQI CHRISTIANS - Read and sign the new Internet petition to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The petition urges Clinton to direct our embassies to assist Christians who have fled Islamic terror in Iraq. The petition is located at

OBAMA'S SUPREME MOMENT- With the retirement of Justice Souter, President Barack Obama will have his first opportunity to nominate a leftist radical to the Supreme Court. He will not pick anyone as "moderate" as former president Bill Clinton. Obama will want someone willing to change the Constitution so it will be more acceptable to the dictators who run the United Nations.

Justice Souter was a liberal, but not nearly as liberal as a likely Obama nominee. He is also younger than either Justice Ginsburg, 76, or Justice John Paul Stevens, 89. Fortunately the older members of the bench are the most liberal.

KILL THE CHRISTIAN PIGS - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton doesn't seem to care if Islamic dictators persecute Christians. She has turned a blind eye toward the Iraqi Christians just as her predecessor Condoleezza Rice did. When the Egyptian government killed more than 300,000 pigs belonging to Christian farmers, she said nothing. This is a genuine humanitarian concern, because these are desperately poor people who are denied most avenues of earning a living in Egypt. If the Russians had killed 300,000 goats belonging to Muslim farmers, I am very sure she would be outraged. The Egyptians claim they killed every pig belonging to Christian farmers because of swine flu; however, there is not a case of the flu in all of Eqypt. Also, it is not passed by pigs to humans, but by human to human contact. This story is not in the US press, but you can read more in the UK press.

WHO WILL STOP NAPOLITANO? - The Religious Freedom Coalition with the help of other organizations ran a color ad for two days in the Washington Times, exposing Homeland Security head Janet Napolitano's bias against social conservatives. She is pulling resources away from investigating threats from violent Islamic Jihadists, in order to investigate pro-life, pro-family groups and veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. She considers those who believe in traditional marriage as a greater threat to America than members of Jihadist organizations. Read our ad here. Journalist Don Feder has written a great article on Janet Napolitano's political crusade against social conservatives. Read it here

THOUGHT CRIMES ON THE WAY - The so called Hate Crimes Bill passed the House and headed to the Senate this week. H.R. 1913 elevated "actual or perceived" sexual orientation" or "gender identity" to federal legal status. The vote was 249 to 175, with 10 not voting. See how your congressman voted here.

Senator Ted Kennedy has introduced S. 909 in the Senate which has 34 co-sponsors and is now in the Senate Judiciary Committee. If it is passed by the Senate, your pastor could go to jail for reading certain Scriptures in the Bible. If you don't want this law, contact your Senators and request them to vote NO. Call both your Senators now. Call the Capitol Switchboard number, (202) 224-3121, and ask to be connected to your Senators.

San Francisco Transgender cops MEET THE SAN FRANCISCO COPS - Chief Heather Fong (left), the first SFPD female chief of police. Theresa Sparks (center, a former male) who is president of the San Francisco Police Commission and the CEO of a multi million-dollar sex toy retailer and a trans gender woman. Sgt. Stephan Thorne (right, former female) and the first transgender SFPD police officer. And who did they elect as their representative to Congress? Speaker Nancy Pelosi represents San Francisco, which sort of tells us the direction America is headed.

OBAMA, THE CATHOLICS AND ABORTION - Mary Ann Glendon, the Learned Hand Professor of Law at Harvard University and a former U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican, has been a pro-life champion for decades. She is a faithful Catholic who has defended her Church without compromise and was about to receive the most prestigious award bestowed by the University of Notre Dame, the Laetere Medal. This past week she said she was refusing the award because the university was granting an honorary degree in law to pro-abortionist Barack Obama. The text of her letter refusing the award can be read here.

HARVARD CHAPLAIN: "DEATH TO CONVERTS" - Last week I reported that the Muslim Chaplain at Harvard University said that the death penalty for converting from Islam to Christianity was "appropriate." The story first appeared in the Harvard Crimson and was ignored by the media. I have sent copies of the story to virtually every news outlet. If you search on the internet for the story practically all Google hits come back to the Religious Freedom Coalition. I have one thing to say to the mainstream media including FOXNEWS: COWARDS

EGYPT JAILS COPTIC PRIEST - Father Mattaos Wahba, is the priest of Archangel Michael Church at Kerdasa, Geza, Egypt. He is a pious priest and good Egyptian citizen who had never been in a prison other than to minister to inmates. His life abruptly changed when he was arrested, charged and convicted of aiding a Muslim woman in getting an ID card as a Christian to enable her to marry a Christian man. He has been sentenced to 5 years at hard labor. Read more

CLINTON PETITION DRIVE - The Religious Freedom Coalition is conducting a petition drive asking Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to formulate a policy to stop the persecution of Christians in Iraq and to aid those Iraqi Christians who have been forced to flee.
