PAKISTAN: Young Christian Women Trapped into Forced Conversions
By News on the Net Thursday, August 27, 2015
Sources: International Christian Concern, Christianity Today
A report released by the Aurat Foundation claims that every year, more than 1,000 women from religious minority groups are forcibly converted to Islam. As in previously documented reports, this current one proves that the majority of these victimized young women and girls are Christians. In many cases, rape and forced marriages to Muslim men are used to trap them into contrived conversions.

The ‘Gay Marriage’ Gauntlet: Time to Choose
By Matt Barber Sunday, August 16, 2015
It’s never fun to be proven right when warning of some impending wrong. Many in the pro-family movement have long stressed that the cultural Marxist left’s belligerent push for the judicial fiction that is “gay marriage” was never about gaining “equal access” to this biologically exclusive male-female institution, as they profess, but, rather, is, and has always been, about control.

Dawa at Chautauqua
By Tabitha Korol Monday, August 3, 2015
The Chautauqua Institution, deemed an adult education center, is less education than it is indoctrination to the world of The Left. In the month of July, in an idyllic setting, the Institution invited Islamists who speak of “Love and Justice in a World of Suffering,” hiding the truths about the suffering caused by Islam—both the harsh Sharia law already in effect for its adherents and to establish it in Dar Al-Harb (House of War), the countries not yet under Sharia—until the entire world will writhe under Islamic oppression.
