… What Grotesque Inhumanity ! [Boko Haram ‘ s actions] ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 12th,2014

.. Boko Haram is not committing jihad .

.. they are committing kidnapping , rape , and murder , especially on a mass scale ..

.. A few days ago , the terrorists from Boko Haram invaded the grounds of a Government secondary school . This one is more like a school – in – residence , where the young ladies lived in dormitories . This is the facility that these scumbags attacked and sacked …

These young girls are considered war booty under Islam. This is consistent with Islamic teaching and with what Muhammad, “the perfect model,” did with the spoils of jihadi war.

The Qur’an sanction of sex slavery:

If you fear that you will not act justly towards the orphans, marry such women as seem good to you, two, three, four; but if you fear you will not be equitable, then only one, or what your right hands own; so it is likelier you will not be partial. (Qur’an 4:3)

Not only is rape and sex slavery permitted, it is righteous.

Nigeria: ‘Abducted Girls Moved Abroad’ All Africa, [1] April 28, 2014 (thanks to JWG)

Boko Haram takes schoolgirls to Chad, Cameroon; marries them off on N2,000 bride price each.

Most of the 234 Borno schoolgirls in Boko Haram captivity have been ferried abroad to Chad and Cameroon after they were married off to sect members on N2,000 bride price each, an elder told Daily Trust yesterday.

The female students were taken from their hostels at the Government Girls Secondary School Chibok on the night of April 14.

About 40 had escaped in the days after the incident, but parents and school authorities said at least 234 of them were yet to be found.

Dr. Pogu Chibok, who is the leader of the Chibok Elders Forum, told Daily Trust yesterday that latest information available to them indicates that most of the girls have been taken to the neighboring Cameroon and Chad by their captors.

He said before they were ferried in canoes across the Lake Chad, a wedding ceremony was conducted at a town on the border with Cameroon where they were married off to Boko Haram militants.

He said N2,000 was paid as bride price on each of the girls to the specific Boko Haram members who took them from their school and who had assumed “ownership” of the students.

“They ferried them in canoes to Cameroon and Chad republic after they were wedded off to Boko Haram members who bidded (sic) and paid N2,000 each as dowries on their heads,” Bitrus said.

“The dowry was paid to their captors, the very people who abducted them from their school. One of them who married one of the girls took her to a border town close to Cameroon where villagers saw her.”

Following their abduction, the schoolgirls were thought to be first taken to the Boko Haram camps in the notorious Sambisa Forest. Reports later said villagers had seen the girls being conveyed in trucks to other locations.

Bitrus said yesterday: “So many sources have informed us that the girls have been taken to Cameroon. Many villagers said they saw the girls being transported in trucks and then in canoes.

“On Sunday they were taken to Dikwa area where they (Boko Haram) have a camp there. From there they took them to Marte, then Monguno before they were finally ferried in canoes. It was yesterday we got this latest report of them being married off to the insurgents by their captors.”

He said sources in Cameroon told them that most of the girls were now being held at “an area where the Boko Haram operates in Cameroon.”

‘Crying day and night’

On whether military authorities were informed about the movements of the girls, Bitrus said: “The military was alerted on Tuesday about two weeks ago when some villagers saw many of the girls being transported in trucks, some with even their school uniforms.

The villagers tried calling the senator representing the zone but they couldn’t get him so they went to Bama barracks where they reported the matter.

“At the Bama barracks they were told that they must put it in writing, that that is the military tradition. At that time if the military had intervened they would have stopped them from reaching their destination.

“And the fact that for nearly two weeks we have been talking about this and nothing is being done, then there are questions we have to ask. Nobody did anything.”

.. LEC again — how can these people pull off and pervert such inhumanity towards their fellow man ? My God , these kids are young schoolgirls , more than likely middle – school age . And they are being ransomed off as war booty to be a bride ??

… Why does Martin Bashir still have a job …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,November 21st,2013

.. Bashir came over from Britain as an accomplished newsman , albeit a little stiff . He did a relatively decent job at ABC , especially on ” Nightline . ”

.. The problem is now is that he is on pMSNBC . What was once a respectable news career is disintegrating before our eye ‘ s . The influence of the pMSNBC culture is dragging him down , down , down …

.. However , the attack that he pulled on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is waaay beyond the pale . How in the hell could something like that even get close to making it on air , anywhere ?

[link] — to my better judgement , so that you can judge for yourself , here is a video link to his original jackasinine attack on Mrs. Palin …

[link] — this is a video link to his on – air apology . Contrary to others , I believe that this came directly from him . It may not been in an attempt to save his job (although it should have been , at a normal news network) , given the pMSNBC culture …

… Outrageous !! [Elane Photography case ruling // NM] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 23rd,2013

.. this one is truly disgusting and outrageous , folks . It is regarding a local photography business (Elane Photography) in New Mexico . Yes , they are a business that does business in the public sphere .

.. No , they are not compelled to violate their religious beliefs . Or , they should not be compelled to do so . The First Amendment to the Constitution (religious freedom) trumps the attempt at compulsion that New Mexico is attempting in their so – called “Human Rights Act.” They may compel anti – discrimination for gays and lesbians , but they cannot force folks to do business with them in violation of their religious beliefs , plain and simple .

… from Breitbart Media ‘ s Big Government …

On Thursday, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled that religious wedding photographers could be forced to photograph same-sex weddings. “When Elane Photography refused to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony, it violated the [New Mexico Human Rights Act, or NMHRA] in the same way as if it had refused to photograph a wedding between people of different races,” the court ruled unanimously.

The court said that Elaine Huguenin, the photographer, had discriminated against gay customers for not photographing their weddings, even though she had said she would be happy to take their pictures in different contexts. The court also refused any differentiation whatsoever between homosexual and heterosexual conduct under the law, despite the fact that same-sex marriage is not licensed in the state of New Mexico. Justice Edward Chavez wrote, “The difficulty in distinguishing between status and conduct in the context of sexual orientation discrimination is that people may base their judgment about an individual’s sexual orientation on the individual’s conduct. To allow discrimination based on conduct so closely correlated with sexual orientation would severely undermine the purpose of the NMHRA.” In other words, orientation and conduct are so intertwined that to discriminate against activity would be to discriminate against the person — an odd line of logic, given that it would then follow that discriminating against religious activity would constitute discrimination on the basis of religion, making the court’s logic self-defeating.

Justice Richard Bosson wrote, in concurrence, that the Huguenins are “compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives.” He concluded, “The Huguenins are free to think, to say, to believe, as they wish; they may pray to the God of their choice and follow those commandments in their personal lives wherever they lead. The Constitution protects the Huguenins in that respect and much more. But there is a price, one that we all have to pay somewhere in our civic life.” That “compromise,” he wrote, “is part of the glue that holds us together as a nation, the tolerance that lubricates the varied moving parts of us as a people. That sense of respect we owe others, whether or not we believe as they do, illuminates this country, setting it apart from the discord that afflicts much of the rest of the world. In short, I would say to the Huguenins, with the utmost respect: it is the price of citizenship.”

It may be the price of citizenship for the left, but it is the polar opposite of what the founders stood for when they wrote the First Amendment protecting freedom of religion. This is state-sponsored tyranny at its finest.
