Amber Alert: Free the Nuns

nuns

Nothing motivates Americans like a child abduction. Search parties are organized, Amber Alerts are issued, flyers printed, the media shifts into overdrive plastering the photo of the innocent missing child on social media and television broadcasts– all in a desperate race against time to rescue the kidnapped child.

Having spent a legal career in child advocacy searching for missing children, abducted by strangers and/or parents, the violent kidnapping of 12 nuns from the St. Thecla Orthodox monastery and orphanage in the Christian city of Ma’loula, Syria by radical Islamists strikes a painful chord. Yet, the apathy and inaction from the international community boggles the mind.

Since September, intense fighting and violent clashes are plaguing Ma’loula, Syria which is considered to be one of the birthplaces of Christianity. Ma’loula is home to a number of ancient Christian shrines and monasteries, which are listed as UNESCO world heritage sites. Aramaic, the language of Jesus, is still spoken there.  With the onslaught of violence, most of Ma’loula’s Christians fled the town leaving only Muslims and the St. Thecla nuns behind. Until December 2, 2013, the nuns were caring for dozens of orphaned children when Islamist rebels stormed the monastery and kidnapped 12 nuns and 3 other women staying at the monastery.

In his weekly audience, Pope Francis immediately called for the release of the nuns. The pontiff appears to be the only global leader raising his voice in protest. Where is the outrage from the international community over this senseless kidnapping? Since their abduction, the nuns have been seen only once in a video posted on Al-Jazeera.

What kind of monsters attack a convent and kidnap innocent religious women who dedicated their life to prayer and the care of war orphans?  Now that the sisters are missing who is caring for the children left behind at the monastery?

With diplomatic ties to the outlawed Syrian government severed, there exists little diplomatic will to rescue these innocent women by our government or the international community.

I wasn't aware of this group until today.  Just want to comment-this weekend the church collects for the Campaign for Human Development.  You might want to google them before contributing.  They have given money to groups who support abortion for many years.  When I've pointed this out to my parish priest (who's also a personal friend) every year he gets very nervous-says that the bishop tells him which collections must be taken up.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
