China, the nation the stocks the shelves of most of the stores across America. The nation that has, thanks for our corporate and congressional sell-outs, taken many jobs and business from America and made them her own. Even worse than this though is her brutal disregard of basic human rights as evidenced by anyone viewed as a threat against the communist state. Christianity, that is true Christianity, being one of her most prized enemies that she seeks to destroy. The Falun Gong also a most notable victim of the venom of the communists.

One whom China seeks to destroy is Gao Zhisheng, a Christian human rights attorney who disappeared February 4th after being taken away by a dozen police officers. A man who has been brutally tortured by the Chinese state where you can read about his story here and watch a video to see the fruits of the communist party.

Please get involved and sign the petition especially if you are a Christian. Get involved any way you can and forward to friends and family. Also, pray for the enemies of Gao as the Lord taught us.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. (Mat 5:44-45)

A not uncommon tragedy you will certainly not hear on the evening news.

A Christian man was stoned to death in Pakistan for drinking tea from a roadside stall designated for Muslims.

According to International Christian Concern (ICC) the man, Ishtiaq Masih, had ordered tea at a stall in Machharkay village, Punjab, Pakistan, after his bus stopped to allow passengers to relieve themselves.

When Ishtiaq went to pay for his tea, the owner noticed that he was wearing a necklace with a cross and grabbed him, calling for his employees to bring anything available to beat him for violating a sign posted on the stall warning non-Muslims to declare their religion before being served.

Ishtiaq had not noticed the warning sign before ordering his tea, as he ordered with a group of his fellow passengers.

Witnesses claim the owner and 14 of his employees beat Ishtiaq with stones, iron rods and clubs, and stabbed him multiple times with kitchen knives as Ishtiaq pleaded for mercy.

The other bus passengers intervened and took Ishtiaq to the Rural Health Center in the village. Ishtiaq died as a result of spinal, head, and chest injuries. The doctor who took Ishtiaq’s case told ICC that Ishtiaq had excessive internal and external bleeding, a fractured skull, and brain injuries.

A correspondent from the ICC confirmed that he saw a warning posted outside the tea stall, which read: “All non-Muslims should introduce their faith prior to ordering tea. This tea stall serves Muslims only.”
