VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI urged Pakistan to reverse its blasphemy laws, saying they were a pretext for violence against non-Muslims, and demanded that all governments do more so Christians can practice their faith without fear.
BISMARCK (AP) — North Dakota’s Legislature is taking a dip into foreign policy. A state Senate resolution urges the Turkish government to stop discrimination against an Orthodox Christian leader in Istanbul.
The office is called the Ecumenical Patriarchate. It is now held by Bartholomew I.
CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s Christians packed churches Thursday for mournful Christmas Eve Masses, weeping and donning black in place of colorful holiday clothes, under a heavy security cordon by police out of fear of another attack like the New Year’s suicide bombing of a church that killed 21 people.
At church gates around the country, police and church staff checked the IDs of those entering the services — and their wrists, where many Egyptian Christians bear the tattoo of a cross.
ISLAMABAD (AP) — The family of a Pakistani Christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy against Islam said Saturday they are hoping for a presidential pardon that could bring her home in time for Christmas.
The case against Asia Bibi — which started with a spat over a sip of water — has renewed calls for reform of Pakistan’s blasphemy law, which critics said has been used to settle grudges, persecute minorities and fan religious extremism.

It started inside a trailer home in rural Michigan, where a small family gathered before bed for prayer. Years later, the private devotions had evolved into a small militia of “Christian warriors” preparing to fight the Antichrist.
The changes in David Brian Stone’s personal theology partly destroyed his marriage, his former wife said, and prosecutors claim they later led him to hatch a plot to kill police officers — a violent act the militia hoped would touch off an uprising against the government.

Nine alleged members of a Christian militia group that was girding for battle with the Antichrist were charged Monday with plotting to kill a police officer and slaughter scores more by bombing the funeral — all in hopes of touching off an uprising against the U.S. government.
Seven men and one woman believed to be part of the Michigan-based Hutaree were arrested over the weekend in raids in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. The ninth suspect was arrested Monday night after a search in rural southern Michigan.

We are writing in response to Vern Bader’s letter on Feb. 5. Bader rebukes those who have the conviction and courage to speak God’s truth in love. Bader quoted his own words from one of his previous letters: “I firmly believe that anyone who has experienced the unconditional love of God cannot deny it to others.” However, Bader fails to understand that the best way we can love others is to warn them when they have turned from God and strayed from his will (Galatians 6:1-2 and James 5:19-20).

During the past month, I’ve read letters from several authors claiming it is a Christian’s moral duty to support government-based health care reform. I support helping people, but it is self-righteous and Pharisaical to presume that supporting a government option makes one morally superior, or opposing it makes you less so.

Victory Christian School, Jamestown, celebrated the beginning of the school year with a free corn feed on Sept. 17. A meal was offered as a fundraising effort for the pre-kindergarten program. Families shucked their own corn and watched as Karin Boom spun wool into yarn with her spinning wheel. They buttered their corn and seasoned it with salt and pepper shakers hanging from a tree. Families sat on blankets and quilts as they ate their meals. Children played on the grounds while their parents visited. The sweet corn was donated by Gabrielle Tweten, a current Victory pre-kindergarten student.
