David Daoud Wright Convicted Of Plotting To Behead Pamela Geller For ISIS Group

David Daoud Wright was found guilty on all counts.

A Massachusetts man was convicted Wednesday of plotting to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller and kill other Americans on behalf of the Islamic State group.

Jurors found David Wright guilty of all charges, including conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries.

The 28-year-old faces up to life in prison.

Prosecutors said Wright, his uncle and a third man conspired to kill Geller because they were upset she organized Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas in 2015. During the contest, two other men opened fire outside and wounded a security guard before they were killed in a shootout with law enforcement assigned to guard the event.

Wright’s uncle, Ussamah Rahim, told Wright on a recorded phone call later that month that he couldn’t wait to attack Geller and decided instead to go after “those boys in blue,” referring to police. Wright told his uncle that was “beautiful” and encouraged him to delete all the data from his computer before carrying out his attack. BostonHerald

D.C.’s New Museum Of The Bible Includes Lots Of Tech — But Not A Lot Of Jesus

Did the museum-creators forget what the Bible is all about?

“Jesus is also curiously not central to the museum’s presentation of the biblical story.”

God’s word seems to have been watered down in the new Museum of the Bible, according to a press preview of the Washington DC monument to Christianity due to open Nov. 17.

“The museum doesn’t encourage visitors to take the Bible literally or to believe that the Bible has only one correct form. And on floor after gleaming floor of exhibitions, there is very little Jesus,” the Washington Post reported.

“This isn’t the evangelism that the billionaire Green family first promised a decade ago when they set out to build a museum dedicated to Scripture.”

The museum’s mission was to “bring to life the living word of God” and “to inspire confidence in the absolute authority” of the Bible.NewsMax

Shift to tech and toward neutrality

“The museum has fence posts — limits,” said Steve Green, the museum chairman and the CEO of his parents’ Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. “It doesn’t overtly say the Bible is good — that the Bible is true.

“That’s not its role. Its role is to present facts and let people make their own decisions.”

The museum boasts of “an unparalleled experience, using cutting-edge technology to bring the Bible to life.” NewsMax

Left out some facts

According to TheBlaze.com, some critics have pointed out that Jesus seems to be oddly absent from the museum’s many displays on the “history, narrative, and impact of the Bible.”

Writing for The Washington Post, Michelle Boorstein, Julie Zauzmer, and Sarah Pulliam Bailey note, “Jesus is also curiously not central to the museum’s presentation of the biblical story. Visitors walk through a multi-room saga of the Old Testament, and they can visit a re-creation of a 1st-century village in Galilee where actors will tell them what the villagers think of this controversial preacher Jesus. They can watch a movie about John the Baptist. But the story of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection is almost absent.”  ChristianHeadlines
