The Peace World Wide YouTube Channel sent out a tribute to Hector Aleem who had been incarcerated for blaspheming Islam in the so-called secular Republic of Pakistan. The last that I heard about Hector he had been convicted even though there was not one stitch of physical evidence provided in trial. The conviction is based only the word of a radical Islamic Imam who wanted to get Hector out of the way so no one would stick up for a Christian Church that a group of Muslims want to bulldoze to the ground.
The latest post I have on Hector Aleem is a cross post of an Ali Sina appeal toward Hector’s plight: “Help Hector Aleem”.
Watch the tribute to Hector and consider sending money to help him and his family. Hector’s family living in Pakistan is in a precarious existence. If a Pakistan government official takes a bold and brave moment to drop charges and convictions against Hector there is the danger of assassination as was the case to the Governor of the Pakistan State of Punjab that pardoned Asia Bibi of a blasphemy conviction. Salman Taseer was assassinated for the pardon.
Also any favorable action provided for Hector could very well result in vigorous retribution against the Aleem family. The only real support systems the Aleems have are the magnanimity of foreign donors and foreign organizations.
To get a tug on your heart strings watch the Hector Tribute that is on YouTube.

The Administration of President Barack Hussein Obama is closing in on Secular Humanist and Homosexual Activist dream in the U.S. Military; i.e. the repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT).
In a relatively short amount of time in 2010 a Federal Judge repealed DADT as unconstitutional followed closely by a stay of the Federal Judge’s order by the Ninth Circuit Appellate Court until the Appeals process follows its legal rounds. Legally President BHO can DADT by a stroke of a pen; however the President already seeing a Conservative voter tilt, has elected to say Congress has to pass a repeal of DADT.
So DADT is currently in limbo with most of the MSM and American Leftists expecting the repeal as if it is set in stone. Somehow the Dem majority in the Senate did not cooperate with the Dem House’s yea vote to repeal. Those in the military that enforce law and regulations are thus in a quandary to DADT enforcement.
Whatever the reasons DADT has not been repealed and should be enforced until it is officially maintained or repealed. Weighing in the continuing DADT argument are a group of retired military Chaplains who have complained that if DADT is repealed new military regulations could challenge the First Amendment of the Free Exercise of religion among current Chaplains. Also in stating a point these retired Chaplains explain they have sent a letter of petition rather than active duty Chaplains for fear of being Court Marshaled for insubordination.
The retired Chaplains petition to President BHO and to Secretary of Defense Gates is based that on the fear of preaching homosexuality is a Biblical sin message could lead to a Chaplain Court Marshal for either disobeying regulations against speaking out against homosexuality or defying orders not to speak out against homosexuality.
This is a legitimate fear because of the powerful intermingling homosexual activists and Leftists who would jump on a bandwagon of accusing the military of allowing hate-speech and bigotry. After all, Secular Humanist/Leftist ideology had prevented Military Chaplains from paying in the name of Jesus. Navy Chaplain Lt Gordon Klingenschmitt was Court Marshaled for defying Orders forbidding him to pray in the Name of Jesus. Can you imagine if a Chaplain was Court Marshaled by the Military for the basic Christian tenet of “Praying in Jesus’ Name, then imagine what would happen to a Chaplain that followed his conviction preaching on the sin of homosexuality?

Multicultural diversity nonsense is attempting to be implemented a State government (Michigan) persecute a Christian’s right to seek another Christian as a roommate sharing the rent in her dwelling. Michigan’s citation was aimed at the advertisement for a Christian roommate on a Church bulletin board was discrimination against other faiths hence violating the Fair Housing Act. One has to wonder if the State would step in if a Muslim or homosexual posting a bulletin board ad for like-minded roommates would receive the same strong arm of the law. Everyone KNOWS one doesn’t have to wonder. There is no way the law would go after a Muslim or a homosexual. One obvious reason is that a Christian would not file a complaint of discrimination but would be gratified to know who to avoid in seeking a dwelling.
This indicates whoever the anonymous person who filed a complaint did so to spite Christian beliefs. Friends this is Christian persecution.
