U.S. President Donald Trump and his counterpart, Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria, have been told that at least 16,000 Christians have been killed in Nigeria since June 2015, many of them victims of radical Islamic violence.
The International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law submitted a petition to Buhari last week, where the civil society organization urged the president to “wake up from [his] slumber” and protect the millions of endangered Christians in Nigeria.
The “Christians at Crossroads in Nigeria” letter, shared online by Elombah.com, said that 16,000 people, mostly Christians, have been killed since Buhari took office in 2015, including the 5,800 victims of Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen, based on Intersociety’s investigation.

TRUTH BOMBS: I am glad that some are upholding the tenants of their faith even in opposition to the insane world around them. We are not called to be silent! We are not ordained to be docile! If the salt has LOST it’s saltiness how will the world repent. Mark 9:50 “Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.” (emphasis added).
ARTICLE: MIAMI, Florida, February 14, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — An openly homosexual Catholic school teacher was fired for “marrying” her lesbian partner and publicizing their relationship online.
“Betrayal of the faith – contractually agreed to — and then blaming the Christian employer for being fired is happening more and more these days,” Americans for Truth about Homosexuality president Peter LaBarbera told LifeSiteNews. “I think the legalized homosexual ‘marriage’ factor ensures that one of these cases will reach the Supreme Court of the United States.”
Jocelyn Morffi taught first grade at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School in Miami for six years. The day after she returned from her lesbian “wedding” in the Florida Keys, she was let go. She called the firing an act of prejudice against her “choice of partner” when her actions clearly violated Catholic teaching and moral standards.

TRUTH BOMBS: Failure to accept the reality of how you were born is INSANITY. It is anti-realism! These people live in a fantasy land. Why don’t we just skip on over to la-la land and see if we can’t find some sanity.
Our kids are being raised as snowflake fantasy seekers that never have to face the hardships of life. They are stuck in perpetual adolesence. So when real life hits them, they fall apart into a state of depression and blame everyone else around them for their own problems.
ARTICLE: COLUMBUS, Ohio, February 14, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Ohio government authorities forced parents to give up legal custody of their daughter after the mother and father said they opposed the girl’s decision to identify as a ‘boy’ and transition to being ‘male.’
The Hamilton County Job and Family Services took legal custody of the teenage girl, 17, who, according to court records, suffers from gender dysphoria. The teen is currently living with her maternal grandparents. The girl’s name and the names of her parents are under court seal.
The minor was diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and gender dysphoria after being hospitalized in 2016. Doctors decided that because she wants to identify as a male, she should be given testosterone and sex “change” drugs.
But the girl’s parents objected, arguing that they did not think that such “treatment” was in their daughter’s best interest.
A juvenile court judge will determine if parental rights for the minor should be entirely stripped.

Suspected Fulani herdsmen have burned down nine churches and have killed at least 30 people in two separate attacks against Christian communities in Nigeria’s Adamawa state.
According to World Watch Monitor, a group of armed men attacked and burnt down Shima and Shiure villages on Feb. 2 and carried out another assault on Tinde and Dumne villages on Feb. 4.
One local source said that the second attack occurred in broad daylight, as people were about to go to church. Many innocent people were chased and killed by the assailants, who also burned down lots of properties, including nine churches, according to the source.
“Despite several calls to the governor and his deputy, and other security apparatus, the government remained silent as the atrocities continued,” he said.
“The Fulani were able to carry out their deadly attack. They stayed for hours in the vicinity, moving at will, unchallenged,” he added.
