Christians' throats slit in pagan slaughterhouse
Video footage reveals systematic execution of victims

Bob Unruh joined WND in 2006 after nearly three decades with the Associated Press, as well as several Upper Midwest newspapers, where he covered everything from legislative battles and sports to tornadoes and homicidal survivalists. He is also a photographer whose scenic work has been used commercially.

After exposing videos of “ritual human sacrifices” of Christians by Muslims, a former Palestinian Liberation Organization member-turned-Christian has discovered a new set of shocking videos that show human slaughterhouses in which non-Muslims are executed.

The videos, posted by Walid Shoebat, and his son, Theodore Shoebat, are horrific, showing heads neatly lined up against a wall and bodies suspended by their feet in a room.

Also shown is the testimony of a witness who was threatened with being “sacrificed.”

“I have never seen something like this,” Shoebat told WND. “I have been investigating this story for the past two weeks. The story is probably the most horrific I have ever [done]. It proves with footage actual systematic [sl]aughterhouses of human beings, including Christians in Syria.”

The witness video, translated by Shoebat’s organization, Rescue Christians, includes the testimony of Saif Al-Adlubi, who inexplicably was identified for “sacrifice” but then not killed before government soldiers arrived.

“This is the reality of Islam, it is a pagan and utterly depraved and sadistic religion. It takes the soul of a man and purges any remnants of human affection from his very being. Look to your own soul, and understand your own obligation to help the Christians,” Shoebat said.

Al-Adlubi reported witnessing Armenians who were waiting their turn to be slaughtered.

An “Egyptian butcher … grabbed the neck of one elderly Armenian Christian,” Al-Adlubi said.

He said the executioner then said, “You’re an aged man and your neck is soft and I don’t have to sharpen my knife for you.”

The report blames the “gruesome systematic human extermination centers” of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, a radical Islamic organization in Syria and the Middle East.

Al-Adlubi is described in the report as a Muslim fundamentalist who joined the Free Syrian Army and was a militant and a media agent for FSA. He was captured but later “made it out when the Syrian militia” defeated the rebels in that location.

Al-Adlubi said he was called a heathen, “kafir,” and he responded, “How could I be considered kafir if I pray and fast?”

“You are ‘murtad’ (apostate),” he was told.

“I asked him, what is my destiny. I want to get a closure. What is it, a year two years in prison?” Al-Adlubi said.

He said he was told, “Rejoice, you will be sacrificed.”

Al-Adlubi reported seeing “bodies of young men who were systematically slaughtered and disemboweled.”

“The slaughterhouse was on a hill. It is secluded and is void of any homes nearby,” he said. “I witnessed lifeless bodies hanging upside down as if they were slaughtered sheep. In the center of the slaughterhouse is a huge Egyptian about two meters high. He was the one doing the slaughtering.”

Editor’s Note: EXTREME CAUTION ADVISED: The videos linked and embedded in this story are extremely graphic, showing brutal executions, and the bodies of those killed in those executions.

The interview:

Shoebat said several Arabic language news sources, Alwatan, AlJazeera and Mufaker, corroborated some of the details.

Reported Shoebat: “The prison centers where the ISIS (Da’ish) controls have become miniatures of what was during the Nazi SS extermination camps, except the ISIS carries out the extermination in a much more horrific way. Da’ish transforms the prisons into kangaroo courts with systematic slaughterhouses and killing centers to exterminate Christians and Muslims who disagree with the Takfiri ideology. Once they are found guilty, the way they deal with the victims was as if they were cattle.”

He said a Syrian Christian named Kamil Toume also confirmed the reports, with video, purportedly of the Siba district slaughterhouse in Homs, Syria.

Editor’s Note: EXTREME CAUTION ADVISED: The videos linked and embedded in this story are extremely graphic, showing brutal executions, and the bodies of those killed in those executions.

In an interview, Toume brought additional information, Shoebat reported.

“You never heard of Umm Muhammad slaughterhouse?” Toume asked.

Additional footage shows two slaughterhouses, one in Bayyada and the other, from several years ago, in Al-Siba.

Al-Adlubi said the victims included Armenian and Syrian Christians along with Shiite and Sunni Muslims.

Said Walid Shoebat: “The stories told by Al-Adlubi and Toume add up. Toume sent us some footage that circulated the Syrian community after the human slaughterhouse finally ended, and the ugly remaining evidence was revealed when Umm Muhammad’s slaughterhouse in the Siba’ district in Homs was busted by Syrian police three years ago in August 2011.”

Shoebat said Al-Adlubi’s story “also checks out from footage obtained from Al-Bayyada, another slaughterhouse, which Rescue Christians was able to obtain footage from.”

“And just as Al-Adlubi stated, they were hanging upside down, headless, like slaughtered sheep. The heads were removed from the root of the chest cavity just as Al-Adlubi stated when describing how the Egyptian was doing his meticulous methods and how Toume described the Umm-Muhammad slaughterhouse in Al-Siba’ district.”

Video from the Al-Bayyada slaughterhouse:

Editor’s Note: EXTREME CAUTION ADVISED: The videos linked and embedded in this story are extremely graphic, showing brutal executions, and the bodies of those killed in those executions.

“We report this story because of the silence on the systematic killing of Christians, Shiite minorities and even Sunni Muslims in Syria who disagree with the Takfirist theology. The story is reminiscent to the initial reporting on the extermination of European Jewry and other minorities when little coverage was given to the truth in these days,” Shoebat said.

WND reported last week Shoebat had uncovered videos showing Muslims conducting “ritual human sacrifices” by slitting the throats of their victims or putting a bullet in their heads.

Shoebat noted the speaker in one video uses the term Qurban just before gunfire erupts and men lined up in a row fall to the floor one by one. Shoebat explained that the Arabic term “can only signify a sacrifice, which indicates that the filmed slaughter is nothing but a ritual human sacrifice.”

Another video shows the throat of the “sacrifice” being slit with a knife.

“Christians are being killed in these very rituals every day, and the bloodshed will not stop. We must work together to rescue them,” Shoebat said.

Shoebat describes himself as a former “radicalized Muslim willing to die for the cause of jihad.”

According to his biography, he arrived in the United States in 1978 to study in Chicago where he was recruited at a “terror conference” by Jamal Said, the founder of the Islamic Association of Palestine, a front group for Hamas that later launched the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Shoebat said he converted to Christianity in 1994. He now is raising funds to assist Middle East Christians through a foundation he created called RescueChristians.org.

WND recently reported that Sister Hatune Dogan claimed members of the jihadist factions in Syria trying to oust President Bashar al-Assad are draining the blood of Christians they behead and selling vials to Islamic radicals for $100,000 apiece.

The Christians, she said, are beheaded in ceremonies in which they are forced to kneel, with their hands and feet bound as the Muslim radicals read a death sentence imposed because the victim refuses to renounce Christianity and embrace Islam.

WND also has reported that the ISIS, considered to be the most ruthless of the Sunni Islamic militant groups fighting in Syria, has ordered a Christian community in Raqqa, Syria, to pay nearly 38 pounds of gold as a “guarantee of their safety.” The alternative offered was death.

Growth of Christianity is happening in the heart of the Muslim world. The Roman Catholic population on the peninsula for example is estimated at around 2.5 million. Kuwait and Qatar are home to between 350,000 and 400,000 Catholics, Bahrain has about 140,000, and Saudi Arabia itself has 1.5 million.
As you may recall, Saudi Arabia is the location of Mecca.

In the summer of 2012, I interviewed an Evangelical minister and activist on my television show in Canada. I’ve hosted this nightly current affairs program for almost three years now, and I try to discuss the international persecution of Christians, especially within Islamic countries, whenever I can. Tragically, there is never a shortage of newsworthy and timely opportunities.
On this occasion my guest, who had vast experience with the horrors faced by followers of Christ within Muslim majority states, asked me if he could put a Bible on the desk in front of him. I am always reluctant to resemble the host of a Christian television show. I am not criticizing what they do, but it is simply not my mandate and does tend to exclude many potential audience members. I politely told him that I’d rather he didn’t. Gracious and understanding, he said he fully understood. But, he continued, this particular Bible might be of interest to the viewers as he had been given it by an Iraqi Christian who attended Our Lady of Salvation Syriac Catholic Cathedral in Baghdad. The church had been attacked during the evening Mass on October 31, 2010 by a Sunni Muslim terrorist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq. At least 58 people were murdered and more than 75 injured in that attack.
The large, heavy book being held in front of me was, I realized, almost beyond reading. Its pages were thick and glued together in lumps, soaked and sticky with the blood of the men, women, and children who had been slaughtered that warm evening in a place of peace, in a city where Christians had lived and flourished before Islam even existed. This was not a holy book to be preached from, but a holy book of martyrdom that preached. Its illegible pages spoke entire volumes, its red turned to brown strains cried out to a still largely indifferent or even hostile world.
I felt guilty that day—ashamed, judgmental, and small. At the end of the interview, the minister showed me some of the shell casings and shrapnel he had picked up from the floor of the church, the grotesque detritus of the pogrom that took place that night. I asked him if I could keep some of them, and he agreed. I have them still, and they are in front of me as I write. Every few words I stop, pick them up, and roll them in my hands as if they were a relic or rosary beads: a tactile reminder, a startling flashback to a scene whose agony I can only imagine.
The 2010 Baghdad attack, however, was just one example of the war on Christianity that has been under way for so very long. An exhaustive list of the individual and collective acts of terror, violence, abuse, and militant discrimination is almost impossible, but it’s so important that we know of the routine, grinding nature of daily life for Christians in the Islamic heartlands.
In November, 2013 the British Conservative politician Lady Warsi, a long-term campaigner against extremism within her own Muslim faith, gave a speech at Georgetown University. She warned of the extinction of Christianity in the Middle East, with an exodus of a “Biblical scale” taking place. This came after repeated attacks on Christians in Syria and Egypt, but also outside of the region in Pakistan; in Peshawar, two months earlier, 85 Christians had been massacred.
“There are parts of the world today,” Warsi wrote in Britain’s Daily Telegraph in a November 2013 article, “where to be a Christian is to put your life in danger. From continent to continent, Christians are facing discrimination, ostracism, torture, even murder, simply for the faith they follow. Christian populations are plummeting and the religion is being driven out of some of its historic heartlands. In Iraq, the Christian community has fallen from 1.2m in 1990 to 200,000 today. In Syria, the horrific bloodshed has masked the hemorrhaging of its Christian population.”
I am currently writing a book for my publisher, Random House, about Islam’s war on Christianity and my editor and I joke that it could be my last for them. Not because they don’t want to continue to publish me but because I may be dead. Gallows humor I suppose, and neither of us seriously believes that anything will happen. Well, we probably don’t believe anything will happen. But it might, because it’s happened before many times. The positive of all this is that an enormous and secular publishing house came to me to write such a book rather than reacting to me approaching them. The truth of Islam’s brutality towards the followers of Christ is becoming common knowledge.
I could write a hundreds columns about this subject and my challenge here is, if anything, to limit my words. The examples of Muslim violence are legion, and what we must emphasize is that this is not a product of contemporary politics or modern struggle, nor is it somehow alien to Islam or an aberration in Muslim history. Put simply, Islam has always been at war with Christianity, has always been intolerant of Christians, and is committed to eliminating the Christian faith. I emphasize that I am not speaking of individual Muslims, millions of whom merely want to live peacefully, but of the Muslim faith itself.
Do not be hoodwinked by those who quote historical examples of positive treatment of Christians in Muslim-majority states or of seemingly benign Quranic statements about the acceptance of followers of Christ. The former are isolated, atypical, and generally the product of rulers and regimes rejecting Islamic orthodoxy. The latter can only be understood if we embrace the concept of abrogation. Within Islam and the understanding of the Quran, later verses and passages always abrogate earlier ones. It is the earlier verses and passages where the Muslim holy book calls for toleration of Christians, and they become increasingly violent and severe as the book progresses.
The Quran, for example, says “Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not Islam as the religion of truth among the people of the Scripture, untilthey pay the Jizyah [religious tax] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (9:29) Another passage states: “O you who believe! Verily, there are many of the Jewish rabbis and the Christian monks who devour the wealth of mankind in falsehood, and hinder men from the Way of Allah. And those who hoard up gold and silver, and spend it not in the Way of Allah—announce unto them a painful torment” (9:34). And: “O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who are the pious” (9:123).
The list goes on. There is nuance, context, backstory, personalities, politics and culture involved, of course, and there are always exceptions to the rule, as well as acts of courage and sacrifice. But the themes are perennial: Islam is never comfortable with and usually hostile to the presence of a Christian minority within its midst.
We can splash around in the waters of denial and relativism or we can swim in the sea of truth and courage. Only one option, however, will lead to drowning. The choice is up to you.

The Girl I Never Met - A Post-Abortive Father's Tale

I have a dear long-time friend who once confided in me that he was a post-abortive dad. We had been talking about the loss of my Bernadette, and he started crying and told me about his own little girl. She is the
child he has never known and the child he loves completely.

I encouraged him to write about what it is to live in the silence of being a post-abortive father. This week he surprised me and sent me the following, then he surprised me further by allowing me to share it with you. He felt it needed to be said out loud and in public. He loves her and misses her and just wishes more than anything that he would have had the chance to be her dad.

I'm in love with a girl I've never met. I've never held her hand, or stroked her hair, or sang songs to her. But I love her all the same.

Whether she's tall or short, I don't know. The shape of her face exists only in my imagination. The lilt in her voice and the joy in her laugh - sounds that would rival the chorus of angels, I'm sure. Sparkling eyes of brown, perhaps hazel.

All that is lost to me. All I possess are the unreal memories of what could have been.

Because 25 years ago, about this time in August, the girl I love was aborted. My little girl. My only daughter. A child so inseparably wrapped around my finger to this day. A girl who will never call me "daddy".

A girl who never felt the protective embrace of her father, because her father failed in her greatest moment of need.

I could write about the abortion, the whys and wherefores, but why? That guy, in a very real sense, no longer exists. I'm not that guy anymore, just as I'm no longer the kid who attended Catholic grade school, or the idiot who got drunk at college parties. The days of "If only..." are long behind me, nor do I play the "I should've..." game any longer. After 25 years, I ought to have stopped all that, right? I admit that what I did, what I allowed to happen, was wrong. I've repented and done my penance. I'm reconciled with the Church.

Reconciliation, while it removes the sin, it doesn't wash away the grief. There's a child-sized hole in my heart that will never be filled in this life. Actually, there's a child-sized hole in my life that my heart will never get over.

The grief of lost fatherhood due to abortion is rarely talked about.  It's only been recently that groups like Rachel's Vineyard have reached out to dads and help them through the grieving process. It's something I yearn to participate in, to get the full healing I know I still need, but am unable to.

Why?  Because a couple years later, I married the woman who had the abortion. I married the mother of our daughter.  You might think that a lot of pain and suffering could have been avoided if we had married other people, and I wouldn't necessarily argue with you. But back in those days, I had convinced myself that the abortion wasn't on me, that I wasn't responsible. It had nothing to do with me. As time went on, though, I faced the fact that I was responsible, that I was a father, and I needed healing.

The bad thing is, the abortion remains a taboo topic of discussion between us to this day, an invisible intractable wall, breached only twice in the past two-and-a-half decades. I'm not going to dive into the dynamics going on, except to say: the one person who can help me work through the grief and pain is the same person who refuses to acknowledge that I'm justified in experiencing pain and grief in the first place. Plus she is unwilling, or incapable of, admitting she killed her child. But this is something I must talk about. To go this long without telling anybody is beyond what I ever believed I could bear. To go any further leads me into a wilderness I have no desire to venture.

It's important that people realize that there are many, many fathers out there who regret the abortion and yet are unable to, or are uncomfortable with, talking about it. The guilt and shame; the feelings of inadequacy, in failing to protect the vulnerable; the isolation; the detachment and inability to form stable relationships; the unspoken tension; the negative effect on parenting; the emotional scarring. These things and more plague countless men, and most carry their grief as an invisible weight that squeezes the very life from their souls.  They love the children who exist only in their hearts, unrequited and forlorn.

I know this because I live this, and have lived this. I've seen it in the way I've interacted with my family. This time of year, every year, is rough. I've shed many a tear at Christmas in the loneliness of an empty room, after everyone else had gone to bed.  Certain songs evoke strong emotions - such as when Fantine sings "I had a dream my life would be So different from this hell I'm living". Some movie scenes can be devastating - such as Capt John Miller, dying on the French village bridge, and gasping to Private Ryan: "Earn this! Earn this!"  And he did earn it - and I'm left asking myself, what have I earned from my life, from my choice? I've watched my brothers walk their daughters down the aisle on their wedding days, and I think, "I'll never be that dad". I have thrown myself on the floor of adoration chapels, before our blessed Lord, begging for His peace, asking for His help to relieve the pain. He always provides the peace, but that child-sized hole in my life remains.

And I don't want that hole to go away. I know that sounds weird, but it's true. I had tried filling that absence with other things, subconsciously at the time, and yet it remained.  For many years I tried to give the love that was meant for my daughter to other pursuits - some good, others not so much.  Looking back, I now understand that that was never going to work. I came to realize that this love won't be satisfied.  Nowadays, I pray with her, and ask for her intercession. It's what is left to me now.

The hardest part is the isolation - being unable to talk about my experience, and perhaps being unable to help other men cope with their own grief. I believe God may be calling me to do that, but without a miracle, I don't see how that will happen. Still, I remain hopeful. The grief? It comes and goes, and I take it as a normal emotional response when a loved one dies, except I'm the one responsible. I suppose it's similar to a father of a stillborn or miscarried child, to a degree. I really can't say, because I haven't experienced those, but I imagine that despite the glaring obvious differences, there is the similarity in loving a child you never met. What makes the grief more pointed is that I brought it on myself.

Please don't think I wallow in grief or self-pity. I regret that day in August 1988 with every fiber of my being, but I don't fantasize about what should have been. The choice to abort was made, and I suffer the consequences of that choice. As does my wife, whose unwillingness to admit to herself that it was gravely wrong impedes full healing between us. I love her, and have forgiven her. I hold no grudge, and pray that God softens her heart so she can begin her own healing. Still, that is my reality, and since she is the mother of all my children, I have made the choice to remain committed to the end, whatever that end may be.

Finally, I believe my daughter has forgiven me - and her mother - which has helped me greatly.  And someday, through the inexplicable mercy and kindness of God, a Father Himself, I am ever hopeful we will finally meet. A reunion of strangers who have always loved each other, and I will finally get to hear her say "Daddy!"

    Sanctity. This is the first rule of a man. Be a saint and create the most fertile ground for your spouse to be a saint.
    Share your dessert. This is one of the hardest tests. You have eaten a good dinner. The sweet tray is brought to your table. She says she does not want any because she is full. Your slice of warm brownie over vanilla ice cream arrives. She suddenly wants half. Give her more than that.
    A clean sink. I do not care how dirty a kitchen is, if you close the cabinet doors and clean the dishes it always looks 100% better. I know you did not leave the doors open. She does not want to hear she did either. Just close them and offer a prayer for the great reminder of all the little things that are flawed in your own person.
    Sex. She deserves better than being treated as an object. She is a lady and a woman. Keep her away from poisons that can harm her body. Yes, the pill is a poison.
    Workout with her. Yes, it takes longer. Life is not about being as efficient as possible.
    Open her door, it opens her heart and yours.
    Take out the trash. Yes that disgusting, smelly, rotten, and overflowing soul. Go to Confession regularly.
    Encourage sons to treat your wife like a queen. This relationship is very important.
    Defend her. If someone threatens her life, step up and die defending her. It is want Adam should have done. This includes those little deaths that destroy a person’s good name like gossip. Your friends do not want to hear about your wife’s faults and you should be embarrassed for even mentioning them.
    Stand your ground. Not against her, but with her. She may have emotions that sore up and down. Be a rock of consideration and strength that comforts her even in what appears to men as trivial. They are important to her, they should be important to you.
    She is beautiful. She wants to hear you say it often.

Standing before an American court convicted of the most heinous of child sex crimes, the double lives of Australian citizen Mark J. Newton and his long-term boyfriend Peter Truong were laid bare.

‘‘Being a father was an honour and a privilege that amounted to the best six years of my life,’’ the American-born Newton, 42, told the court.

Moments later Newton was sentenced to 40 years in prison for sexually abusing the boy he and Truong, 36 from Queensland, had ‘‘adopted’’ after paying a Russian woman $8000 to be their surrogate in 2005.

Police believe the pair had adopted the boy ‘‘for the sole purpose of exploitation’’. The abuse began just days after his birth and over six years the couple travelled the world, offering him up for sex with at least eight men, recording the abuse and uploading the footage to an international syndicate known as the Boy Lovers Network.

‘‘Personally .. I think this is probably the worst [paedophile] rings ... if not the worst ring I’ve ever heard of,’’ investigator Brian Bone of the US Postal Inspection Service told reporters outside the US federal court room in Indiana.

US District Judge Sarah Evans Barker said the pair deserved a harsher punishment but were tried at district court level to avoid subjecting a jury to the repulsive images that had been produced.

‘‘What can be said? What can be done to erase some of the horror of this?’’ Judge Barker said in handing down her sentence.

Truong has also pleaded guilty and will be sentenced at a later date.

Newton and Truong gave an interview to a local ABC reporter in Far North Queensland in 2010 on their battle to have a child as a gay couple. Their search started in 2002 in the US, where they both were working, and when they did not have any success Truong travelled to Russia and found a woman who they ‘‘clicked with personality-wise’’. She was paid $8000 and, as per their agreement, granted the couple sole custody of the boy, handing him over five days after his birth in 2005.

The family planned to live in Cairns but that was delayed because Australian authorities initially refused to grant the child a visa. That took 2 years and upon their eventual arrival in Australia they said Customs quizzed them for hours. Police were also sent to the family’s house in Cairns to check up on the pair.

In the radio interview, 20 months before their arrest, Newton was asked if he felt the extra attention was because authorities suspected there was ‘‘something dodgy ... something paedophlic going on here?’’

‘‘Absolutely, absolutely, I’m sure that was completely the concern,’’ Newton replied.

Evidence before the court revealed the abuse began before the couple returned to Australia. One video is said to show Newton performing a sex act on the boy when he was less than two weeks old.

Judge Barker said the pair brainwashed the child to believe the sexual abuse was normal. Newton was also said to have trained the boy to deny any inappropriate behaviour if he was ever questioned by authorities.

Newton and Truong came to the attention of police in August 2011 after their connections to three men arrested over the possession of child exploitation material came to light. The couple had visited the three men in the US, New Zealand and Germany with their son.

While the couple were visiting family in the US, Queensland police searched their Cairns home and found enough evidence to alert their US counterparts who raided their Los Angeles base and took the boy into custody.

Newton and Truong claimed they were being targeted because they were homosexual. However after his arrest in February 2011, Truong gave investigators the password to the computer hard drives police had seized. It detailed the years of abuse.

The boy remains in the care of extended family in the US.

In what may well be a sign of what is to come in the United States, supporters of Marriage as between one man and one woman have their first political prisoner in France.
A twenty three year old man named Nicolas Bernard-Busse was arrested and given four months in prison for "rebellion". He took part in what French Police called an unauthorized demonstration. it is a part of a growing mass movement to support real marriage and the family and society founded upon it in France.
In an example of the trend of using language as a propaganda weapon, the Press in France is calling these peaceful people from every walk of life - anti-equal marriage demonstrators. As the rhetoric demonstrates, Orwellian newspeak knows no national boundaries.
Those who use the police power of the State to force a moral and legal equivalency with marriage be given to  homosexual and lesbian relationships are the people who oppose marriage. Their intention is to entirely reorder civil society. They use the phrase 'marriage equality' in an act of verbal engineering to defend their perverse social and legal engineering.
They attempt to make, by decree, what can never be made a marriage - a homosexual or lesbian partnership. That sort of  decree, whether from a Court or a legislature, rejects the Natural Moral Law and is an unjust law.
This past week in France demonstrators supporting marriage again gathered on Paris's Champs Elysées. These demonstrations are becoming a regular part of life in France. They are part of a grassroots movement which is growing and spreading.
The participants often face tear gas and clubs from the riot police representing the French Socialist regime. They are courageous - and unwilling to back down. They frequently sing La Marseillaise, the French National Anthem, and carry handmade signs supporting marriage as between one man and one woman.
Their signs have slogans touting such 'revolutionary ideas' as the notion that children should have a mother and a father. They are probably an indication of what is to come to the United States in the wake of the abysmal recent opinions of the United States Supreme Court.
This new French resistance is part of a movement I am beginning to call a Marriage Liberation Movement. The participants seek to liberate marriage from the grip of Cultural Revolutionaries.
Though the Marriage Liberation Marchers in Paris represent every segment of French society, and reflect a wide range of ages, ethnic identities and political persuasions, they are collectively labeled as conservatives and "right wing" in the press. They are disparaged as being bigoted, though they are actually multi-racial and multi-ethnic in their make-up.
If you read main stream propaganda media reports in France you will be misinformed. You will read that these people are 'anti-equal marriage'. The French propaganda press also uses Orwellian newspeak to fuel caricatures. They do not report the news - they promote the Cultural Revolution.
Those who defend marriage, defend marriage. They also defend the family and society founded upon it. In doing so, they defend the common good of society. The use of the police power and mechanisms of the State to undermine marriage - and replace it - is what is at stake in France, and now clearly in the United States. 
Our position on marriage as only between one man and one woman is not an outdated notion of a past era but provides the path to the future. Nor is the position simply a religious matter. We insist upon the existence of a Natural Moral Law which can be known by all men and women through the exercise of reason. 
That Natural Moral Law is the ground upon which every great civilization has been built. It is the source for every great and authentic human and civil rights movement. That Natural Moral Law gives us the moral norms we need to build societies and govern ourselves.
It should also inform our positive law or we will become lawless and devolve into anarchy. Civil government did not create marriage. Neither did the Church. It precedes both. Neither can civil authorities manufacture a new right to marry for those who are incapable of marriage.
There is a growing intolerance spreading in the West against our rights to free expression, association and political participation. This is reflected in the censoring of speech which questions the propriety of the current cultural slide into the abyss of relativism.
Efforts to prevent our public defense of the objective truth about marriage and the family are multiplying. France is a sign of what is to come to our own Nation. Twenty three year old Nicolas is becoming a hero to the French supporters of marriage.
Nicolas Bernard-Busse was given four months in prison for protesting against a State which has decided that his position concerning marriage and family are unacceptable. To promote them is rebellion. This 23-year-old French student was arrested on Sunday, June 16, 2013 following a demonstration outside the studios of a TV station where President François Hollande was appearing.

He went from there to the Champs-Élysées in central Paris with friends.They were wearing T-shirts with the slogan "Manif pour tous" and the now recognizable logo of a father and mother with two children. My, what a revolutionary act!
This weekend in France crowds gathered to demand his immediate release. Cries of Free Nicolas are a part of this growing marriage liberation movement. The people in the Streets of Paris are calling the French Regime a 'socialist dictatorship'.
He has a lawyer named Henri de Beauregard who has called the Courts order of arrest grotesque. He is arguing that this was a wrongful arrest made to intimidate Nicolas and this movement. The supporters of Nicolas have a facebook page which calls him a political prisoner. He is a political prisoner. They also have a petition online which demands his release. http://liberonsnicolas.fr/
We should all join the cry. Free Nicolas Bernard-Busse!
