News analysis from a prophetic Christian worldview
House passes anti-hate bill, WHAT?
NOTEWhen writing about God and Jesus, The Daily Jot means YHVH as God and Yeshua Ha Mashiach as Jesus--the actual original names and the true nature and character of them.

Led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) the Democrat-led House of Representatives passed an anti-hate resolution (407-23) ostensibly in response to Islamic Marxist representative Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) remarks against Jews and Israel. Originally about anti-Semitism, the Marxist Democrats couldn't help adding in more division and class warfare by including Muslims, Latinos, Asian-Americans, homosexuals, lesbians, bi-sexuals, and transgenders as people who cannot be hated. Let's see, who did they miss? Oh, yes, it's Ok to hate Christians and white men. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said he was "shocked" that the bill "refused to similarly condemn discrimination against Caucasian Americans and Christians."
All but 23 Republicans voted for the resolution. Who can blame them? They don't need campaign commercials by their socialist opponents claiming that they supported hate. But hate it is. For the Marxists to leave out Caucasians and Christians signals that it's fine to direct hate toward these people. But in another twist, what started as a rebuke against Islamist Omar's bigoted remarks against Israel and Jews somehow turned into a resolution condemning all sorts of anti-Muslim bigotry. The resolution " acknowledges the harm suffered by Muslims and others from the harassment, discrimination, and violence that result from anti-Muslim bigotry; condemns anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against all minorities as contrary to the values of the United States."
The "Whereas" section of the resolution looks like a rap sheet of crimes in America against all sorts of people. One of them states, "Whereas Muslims and people perceived to be Muslim are subjected to false and dangerous stereotypes and myths including unfair allegations that they sympathize with individuals who engage in violence or terror or support the oppression of women, Jews and other vulnerable communities." What? Have they read the Quran? Have these people heard what Omar and her Islamist colleagues have said, and who they are associating with? Yet they are passing over the bigotry that their own Marxist Democrats have done or, even worse, are doing. This is nothing short of demagoguery. 
If the Marxists in Congress wanted to sincerely stand against hate, all they really had to do was encourage people to "do unto others as you would have them do to you (Luke 6:31)." Or "love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:31)." These words suffice as rules of life, values to cherish, good citizenship. They don't divide. They don't create class or racial struggle. They don't create hate while condemning it. But NO. These Marxists in Congress couldn't do something so kind and simple because those are the words of Christ-the followers of whom it's OK to hate. It's as Titus 1:16 says, " They profess that they know God; but in works they deny  him , being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate." Passing an anti-hate bill that protects the haters-what?
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Caring for those even the Church ignores: 
The Disabled in Ghana

By Pastor William Agbeti

[ NOTE: In addition to our ongoing clean water, feeding, and clothing efforts when you support The Daily Jot, you are helping wipe tears off the faces of suffering mothers and fathers seeking rehabilitation of their disabled children]
UN figures put persons living with disabilities in the world at 20% of the global population. 80% of this number can be found in developing countries. In Ghana alone, there are some 3 million persons living with various forms of disabilities. 
Our Ghana ministry serves where others will not.This two-day residential program for children with disabilities provide food, clothing and recreation

Their plight is demoralizing. Many in the Ghanaian society consider them taboos. Scores of local churches have not opened their doors to them. Several families neglect their disabled children, to fend for themselves. Sadly, some communities go to the extreme to put a newly born disabled child into a mortar and use a pestle to pound it to death, with the belief that their souls will not return to the communities again. In the main, the disabled are ostracized from the society. Only a handful of homes, families and communities treat them with a modicum of respect and acceptance. Read the rest of the story by clicking here
