U.S. Media Not Updating You on The Flogging of Raif Badawi?
Then I will. Don't you think it curious that the American mainstream media doesn't want you to know all this? They're always there to pounce on injustices committed by right-wing extremists. Where are they now?
Most of the members of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom have volunteered to each take 100 lashes for Saudi blogger Raif Badawi.
Princeton professor Robert P. George explained the decision of the USCRIF group in an email to The Christian Post.
“Together with six colleagues on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, I sent a letter to the Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. calling on the Saudi government to stop the horrific torture of Raif Badawi — an advocate of religious freedom and freedom of expression in the Saudi Kingdom,” wrote George, who is a vice-chair of the commission.
“If the Saudi government refuses, we each asked to take 100 of Mr. Badawi’s lashes so that we could suffer with him. The seven of us include Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives, Christians, Jews, and a Muslim,” he added.
Offering to take Badawi’s lashes along with George are six other members of the USCIRF: Mary Ann Glendon, member of the Board, Becket Fund for Religious Liberty; M. Zuhdi Jasser, president, American Islamic Forum for Democracy; Daniel I. Mark assistant professor, Department of Political Science, Villanova University; Hannah Rosenthal, CEO, Milwaukee Jewish Federation; Eric Schwartz, dean, Humphrey School of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota and Katrina Lantos Swett, president of Lantos Foundation for Human Rights & Justice.
Prof. Daniel Mark is an Orthodox Jew. Hannah Rosenthal was the U.S. Special Envoy and the head of Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism between 2009 and 2012. Katrina Lantos Swett, the chair of the USCIRF, is the daughter of the late Congressman Tom Lantos, who was a Holocaust survivor. Lantos Swett is a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints.
Now that's what I call humanity speaking up for real human rights. God bless them.

"After Abortion,...run by Emily Peterson and Annie Banno, two women who had abortions in the 1970s, ...tries to avoid the political tug-of-war that tends to come with this turf. They concentrate instead on discussing the troubling personal effects of abortion on the mothers." ~ Eric Scheske, Godspy contributing editor, in NC Register's "Signs of Life in the Blogosphere", 2/2006
"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."
