Catholics burned alive by Muslims in Nigeria — where’s the MSM? – The Brenner Brief (Warning Graphic Images)

Catholics burned alive by Muslims in Nigeria — where’s the MSM? – The Brenner Brief.

By 

Those are (were) people of the Catholic faith and citizens of Nigeria. They were burned alive inNigeria by Muslims.

Why in the world isn’t the mainstream media covering this? Because it doesn’t fit their perfect little meme that the Christians are mean and evil to the innocent Muslims. A few blogs have covered this, but that’s all.

The Catholic Church has responded:

Statement by Father Juan Carlos Martos 

This is a brutal example of how far the struggle between muslims and catholics in Nigeria has reached. Muslims are determined to impose their ‘religion’ all over Africa as well as in other continents and countries of the world. Islam has but one goal: rule the world at any cost!

And where are the International Human Rights Organizations? Christians are burnt alive in Nigeria: a horrific Holocaust right in front of International indifference! As denounced by Father Juan Carlos Martos, on behalf of the Missionari Clarettiani, via del Sacro Cuore di Maria, Rome, Italy.

By publishing this graphic document on Facebook, I have intended to make the world aware of certain terrible events totally ignored or minimized by the mainstream media; an authentic genocide so cruel and inhuman only comparable with the most hateful and vile acts in the Nazi extermination camps.

To my great surprise, Facebook has criticized me for the publication of this graphic document as a proof of the Holocaust that Christians have been suffering in Nigeria in the last ten years. According to Facebook’s Security policy of the ‘social’ Network, this photo has been classified as ‘pornographic’, ‘violent’ or ‘inappropriate’ and hence I was disallowed to publish any picture for a week. And I was threatened drastic measures if I insist publishing any document that prove the terrible violations of Human Rights in Nigeria. This attitude by the (Spanish) Facebook Management is an attack to the freedom of expression as much as a shameful insult to the 500 victims (only in this horrible episode) slaughtered by Islamic terror only for being Christian.

I thought that this social network, originated in the United States, would not bend its knees in front of terror. Especially, when still healing their wounds suffered in the gruesome 9/11 attack, just as our own 3/11 at Madrid railway station, all innocent victims of the wild fury and insanity of Islamic terror.”

This seems even more unacceptable in Spain, a Democratic state, where the rights of opinion, expression and religion are guaranteed by the Constitution (Art. 16 and 20), if there is an attempt to limit such rights, let alone through threats and coercion thus weakening their freedom of expression by condemning as “inappropriate” a graphic document (not a photomontage) which reflects a brutal reality in all its crudeness.

Contrarily, the Administrators of Facebook Spain should welcome this public protest advocating that such a barbarian act will never be replicated and that its perpetrators will be brought to justice. This is a right and duty of every citizen: a service to society, ultimate goal, I feel, of any network that defines itself as ‘social’.

Regrettably, if the murders continue, this is greatly because truth is always hidden to the sovereign people, so that they may not be aware and ‘disdained’ by it: complicit silence by the mainstream media leads to the indifference of the
international political community facing this unspeakable Holocaust! Let alone the cowardice already rooted in the western world facing the islamic terror. A consequence of the stupid “Alliance of civilizations”: another regrettable incident of our former Prime Minister Rodriguez Zapatero.

Can you imagine the reaction of the Islamic terrorist organization in the (impossible) case of a massacre of Muslims in a mosque, by the hands of Christian terrorists? And how widely would our media cover and condemn the crime and the criminals?

Therefore, from this modest blog, I ask a favor from all people who are reading me: please distribute this photo and its comments using all the media you have. If only for commemorating these martyrs since, unfortunately, Facebook seems to be on the side of the executioners by preventing the publication of such tragic events.

The Educating of Sandra Fluke

The purpose of this post is not to judge Ms. Fluke, it is simply to take a very simple look at the impact of her actions upon her own future, Liberals, and higher education. Let’s start with Ms. Fluke herself:

  • Like any high school student wanting to attend college, or wanting to get a job, any google search will forever find her testimony to Congress and will judge her qualifications, at least in part, on what she herself had to say. She is in Law School, so it is safe to assume that she wants to be an attorney.
  1. Reliability–How reliable can you be if you display such little restraint in your personal life?
  2. Dependability–If you are not willing to take responsibility for your actions, how can you be trusted to represent others when their lives, jobs, and futures are possibly at stake.
  3. Decorum—well, if you don’t stop to think about it before you announce to the whole world that you are a little ??? (I truly don’t want to use the word that others are banding about, but I am having trouble thinking of something else that might be suitable)
  4. Knowledgeable—You really did not seem to consider the consequences of your actions, so that brings into question your intelligence.
  5.  Trustworthiness— Your parents obviously trusted you to get an education so that you could provide for yourself, your actions seem to have cast some doubt on that ability.
  6. Accountability—no question there is there, you have told the world that you don’t want to be held accountable for the results of your actions. You want the rest of us to pay for birth control so that you can be irresponsible without being accountable for the consequences.

As far as Liberals, it just shows the distance that they will go to make everyone else pay for what they think that they deserve and that they are willing to go to any lengths in order to force their will upon everyone else.

Higher Education—If this women is a fair representation, I would personally put that at a fail. If a thirty year old woman is no smarter that a sixteen year old who puts things that are improper on Facebook, you really have to question whether they are teaching anything worth learning or if they are simply baby sitting young adults and gracing them with degrees in order to get them out of their parents hair. And perhaps get as much money from them and the government as possible.

No wonder this country is in the trouble that it is in. Perhaps we need to look to less college and more factories. You learn responsibility real quick when your future depends on how you handle your job.  You also learn the consequences of spending too much money, and how to deal fairly with people. Just think about the money that would be saved if instead of wasting time on irresponsible unproductive people who spend most of their times doing things that are totally irrelevant to society and their own future prospects as members of society. Parents wouldn’t be going broke, and birth control wouldn’t be the problem that Liberals seem to think that it is. If people are too busy providing for themselves and can’t afford the cost of their own irresponsible actions, they would be less inclined to be so immoral in their actions.

Ms. Fluke, I do not know you or your parents, but if you were my daughter or grand daughter, I would not be happy with your actions. Have you bothered to consider what people might think of them and how they raised you? I will keep you in my prayers, I have the feeling that you will need them pretty much. After all, sooner or later we all pay for our actions and you have run up a very big bill!

Perhaps, as a last thought, I should take time to thank you, Ms. Fluke! You have given the rest of us an education as regards to the immorality and ignorance that is taking place both in colleges and upon Capitol Hill, among the member of our government that we are paying to represent us. It seems obvious that we could save enormous amounts of money if we fire these people and get our government out of the lives of regular Americans who understand the values that you are lacking in!


Do you remember Woolworth’s?

YES THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS. THEY ARE LONG GONE. 1957 Sandwich Menu from Woolworth‘s….
If anyone doubts what we paid for a coke and a sandwich at Woolworths
In the 1950s, here’s proof of the era we lived in.
I wondered who to send this to – who would actually remember eating at a Woolworth’s.
Isn’t it fun just to receive an e-mail that doesn’t make you crazy but just brings back good memories?
For those of you who are too young to remember. Too bad. You missed living in a wonderful time.
Can you believe it was in ENGLISH ONLY!

Cajun Sign–When Reality Sucks Add Humor

The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth. – John F. Kennedy
Reverend Boudreaux was the part-time pastor of the local Cajun Baptist Church, and Pastor Thibodaux was the minister of the Covenant Church across the road.   They were both standing by the road, pounding a sign into the ground that read:Da End is Near
Turn Yo Sef ‘Roun Now
Afore It Be Too Late!As a car sped past them, the driver leaned out his window and yelled, “You religious nuts!”

From the curve they heard screeching tires, and a big splash…

Boudreaux turns to Thib and asks, “Do ya tink maybe da sign should jussay………Bridge Out?”

Opening Pandora’s Box; The Road Ahead

Father,

In Matthew 6:4 Your word says not to worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s worries are enough for today.   So I will not dwell on the road ahead.  Your word says Do Not Fear.  So, I will not operate in fear.  Instead, I hope.  I know that you are my source of strength and that when I am weak then you are strong.

Jesus%20Holding%20Woman  I know that I am hidden in you; the one coming to kill my soul will never find me.  When I feel afflicted I can be still and know that you are God.  You are bigger than my feelings.   Even when the storm feels overwhelming and the waves are higher than my head and all I can seem to see is danger, the truth is, You protect me and I will find no safer place than in your embrace.  Though the waves seem as if they are going to pound the very air from my chest, I am sheltered in you.

Insanity In A Small Town

 We have been hearing stories all over the United States about how peoples rights are being denied by both big and small governments, but the story below is from my home state and is one of the worst examples of people in power deciding what others can and can not do. Never in the history of this country have people been told they could not talk or comment on anything about the town or city, whether they live their or not. This my friends is simple insanity! Please read the article below and go to the website to watch the video they have. I would have embedded it but could not get the code right! Please watch and take care that your own community or city is not considering something as stupid and controlling as this. When we try to restrict the freedoms we have this way, we are on the path to destruction as a country.

GOULD, AR – “I feel as though our city is being held hostage by the city council,” said Gould Mayor Earnest Nash.

Gould, Arkansas is made up of about 850 people.  850 people the Mayor believes will soon have cause for 850 lawsuits.

“This is America and even though this is Gould, Arkansas, this is still part of America. And in America, you can’t just vote and violate peoples constitutional rights,” said Nash.

Monday night, the city council wrote an ordinance disbanding a citizen’s group and forbidding any future groups from forming without city council approval.

The ordinance states, “No new organizations shall be allowed to exist within the city of Gould without approval from majority of the city council.”

Another ordinance bans the mayor from meeting with anyone without council approval.

“To tell me that I can’t travel and I can’t go to meetings and I can’t get the money that we need – that’s ludicrous!” said the Mayor.

“In everything, you have somebody in control over it. In everything,” said Council Member Sonja Farley.

Farley says no matter the group, if you discuss the city at all, the meeting must be approved by the city council.

“You couldn’t just come in here and get with four people and decide you want to start an organization,” said Farley.  “You will go through your city council with documentation, the right paperwork and get an approval.”

“To tell me as the mayor I can’t meet with all of the people in this room and inform them of city business, that’s ludicrous,” said Nash.

The Gould Citizens Advisory Commission is banned from meeting in the ordinance.  They argue this new potential law would violate their constitutional rights.

“This will not be signed,” said the Mayor. “This will not be signed into law. I promise you that. If they want it signed into law, I’ll repute it again. They can take me to court.”

Currently, as written, the ordinance is extremely vague.  Right now it encompasses boy scout troops, book clubs and even discussing city matters with your family in your own home.

The Mayor vetoed the ordinance at Monday night’s meeting on a technicality but fears once it’s brought up at the council’s August meeting, he won’t be able to stop it from becoming law.

With Sarah Palin, you always know where she stands. She doesn’t weave back and forth or stick her finger in the wind, she just says what she believes. She is a true leader!!!! She knows what is important, unlike Obama. She considers those who are giving their lives, worth standing for. Her policy is to strengthen the country, not to bring it down.

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com Governor Palin ended today’s Facebook note by saying, 2008 seems like such a long time ago, but 2012 is just around the corner. There is a leadership vacuum in the White House right now, but that’s nothing that another good old-fashioned election can’t fix. The Governor is one of the few who will call it like she sees it–time and time again. The pressure comes, and she stands up underneath it. The waves … Read More
