Media Bias, Standing For Faith, Missile Fizzle, Islam & Feminism

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Media Bias - The Washington Post realizes that it has been missing the boat on covering men and women of faith. So, not surprisingly, the Post runs a column entitled "The Five Myths of The Cross" -- on Good Friday.

The editors were smart enough to avoid calling the resurrection a myth, but they came close. For example, we were told that Jesus' cross likely looked more like a T. We were told that He probably didn't carry the cross to Golgotha. And "it would have been impossible to fix the condemned to a cross by nails alone."

Hats off to the Post for at least wanting to cover religion. I'm waiting for Eid. I'm sure the Post will tell us about the "Five Myths of Islam," like Muhammad went to Jerusalem. Or that he ascended into heaven on a horse and met Moses. Or that Islam is a religion of peace. Or that Muhammed owned slaves. Oh, wait -- that is true, which is why ISIS promotes slavery.

By the way, across the Atlantic, the BBC's contribution to Easter was breathlessly reporting that 25% of British Christians don't believe in the resurrection. Well, all that means is that they aren't Christians. So why is it news that non-Christians don't believe in the resurrection?

Standing For Faith - While the left-wing media are quick to mock men and women of faith, I am pleased to report that more than a dozen senators recently sent a letter to President Trump defending faith in America.

These senators praised the president's strong defense of religious liberty at the National Prayer Breakfast. More importantly, they urged President Trump to issue an executive order protecting religious freedom from overbearing federal agencies, especially in light of the Obama Administration's attack on the Little Sisters of the Poor and the left's growing hostility to Christian businesses and institutions.

You can read their letter here.

Meanwhile, a major religious liberty case will be argued before the Supreme Court this week. Justice Neil Gorsuch is expected to have a major impact in the final ruling. In fact, it is quite possible that conservatives will prevail in a 5-to-4 ruling, rather than lose on a 4-to-4 tie, thanks to Justice Gorsuch.

Defending our first freedoms is a key priority for us, and we look forward to working with our friends in the Trump/Pence Administration to defend religious liberty.

Missile Fizzle - Leading up to last weekend, numerous reports indicated that North Korea was getting ready to conduct another nuclear test. President Trump warned the rogue regime to back down. He dispatched a U.S. Navy carrier strike group and sent Vice President Mike Pence to the region. Pence made an unannounced visit to South Korea's demilitarized zone this weekend and celebrated Easter with U.S. troops.

Meeting with South Korea's acting president today, Vice President Pence sternly warned North Korea's Stalinist regime against testing President Trump.

"Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed the strength and resolve of our new president in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan," Pence said. "North Korea would do well not to test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region."

So far, there has been no nuclear test from North Korea. But the regime did attempt to test what many believed was an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). It blew up seconds after launch, evidence that they still have significant technological problems to overcome.

Former British Foreign Minister Malcolm Rifkind suggested that western intelligence agencies hacked into the missile and blew it up. Deputy National Security Adviser K. T. McFarland was pressed about that possibility by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace.

She replied, "Now, Chris, you know we can't talk about secret intelligence and things that might have been done. . . But I don't have any particular comment on what happened with the North Korean missile. But it was a fizzle."

On "Face The Nation" yesterday, Washington Post reporter David Ignatius noted that "88% of North Korea's intermediate-range missile tests in the last several years -- 88% -- have been failures. Something is going on."

Islam & Feminism - Radical Palestinian/Sharia law activist Linda Sansour recently suggested that women cannot be both pro-Israel and pro-woman. I mention Sansour because she was a leader of the "Women's March on Washington" and is often held up by the left as a progressive feminist leader.

But to my knowledge, Sansour or hardly any other feminist leader has said a word about the recent arrest of Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, a Detroit emergency room physician. Last week, Dr. Nagarwala was charged with performing female genital mutilation (FGM) on two girls, both of whom are approximately 7 years old.

The Department of Justice noted that this case is believed to be the first such prosecution "brought under 18 U.S.C. 116," which makes FGM a federal crime punishable by five years in prison. The law became effective in January 2012.

That means that in the past five years, the Obama Administration could not find even one case to prosecute, even though there was growing concern. Two years ago, Newsweek reported, "The number of women and girls at risk for female genital mutilation (FGM) in the United States has more than doubled in the past 10 years."

What is the cause of this disturbing trend? Radical Islam is gaining a beachhead in America as we accept more and more immigrants from Islamic nations.

According to one expert interviewed by Newsweek, "Immigration to the U.S. from African and Middle Eastern countries -- where the practice of FGM is a deeply entrenched cultural tradition -- is the sole factor for the rise in numbers." [Emphasis added.]

This issue should be a major factor in every discussion about immigration reform. Beyond vetting for ties to terrorism, we should be asking prospective immigrants and refugees about their beliefs on women's equality and support for radical practices like FGM.

Are there any feminists reading this report who would like to partner with me in changing our immigration laws?

Seriously, left-wing feminists are the real bigots here. They don't care enough about women to put an end to this barbaric practice or to fight for the right of Muslim women not to wear the veil.
