The Angel In The Sky: Skier Captures A Rare Sun Halo Over Mountains In Sweden

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”  Psalms 19:1 (NIV)

Stunning footage has captured the moment treated to the incredible sight of a rare ring of light surrounding the sun.

The atmospheric effect enveloped the low winter sun with a corona, known as a 22 degree halo.

They form as sunlight is refracted in millions of hexagonal ice crystals suspended in the sky.

The breathtaking clip was captured by a skier at the Vemdalen resort in central Sweden.

Ludvig Lundin shared the footage to Facebook, where over five million visitors to the site viewed the eye-catching distortion.

Some even compared the phenomenon to the appearance of an angel.

Among them was David D. Sterling, who said: ‘That looks like an image you would imagine seeing before angels begin forming or first light up in the sky of Jordan on Christmas.’

Megan Tenaya Birchell added: ‘These are the kind of things that helps you understand people believing in angels. DailyMail

Muslim Girls’ School In UK Does Not Provide Toilet Paper And Soap For ‘Cultural Reasons’

A school in a developed country – Great Britain.

$2,000 per year Girls’ High School, in Stoke-on-Trent, does not provide toilet paper, soap, or suitable drinking water for the students.

Sectarian material was found at the school.

A Muslim girls’ school has received the lowest Ofsted rating available after inspectors discovered that pupils were not provided with lavatory paper for “cultural reasons”.

Staff at the fee-paying Park Avenue Girls’ High School, in Stoke-on-Trent, said paper was available from the school office, but because most of the students were Asian, they preferred to wash rather than wipe.

But some of the girls told inspectors they were so unhappy about the situation that they avoided using the lavatory all day.

The school, which was visited by inspectors October, was rated “inadequate”, with the report identifying a range of concerns, including safeguarding problems and the discovery of sectarian material on the premises.

The Ofsted report stated: “At the time of the inspection, it was not the school’s common practice to provide soap for pupils’ hand-washing, toilet roll in the toilets or suitable drinking water.

“Toilet paper is available from the school office when pupils request it. Pupils told inspectors that they sometimes avoided using toilets for the whole school day because of this.”

But headteacher Abdul Ghafoor Salloo defended the policy, insisting the school catered for the cultural needs of the pupils.

“The children they do use the toilets and traditionally, because we are Asian, we wash, not only wipe. There are facilities for pupils to clean themselves,” he said.

“Some pupils, they avoid using toilets because they don’t like going in there.

“There are facilities for cleaning yourself in the toilet – it might be hard for someone who doesn’t traditionally wash to understand and washing is better than wiping clean.

The school inspectors also stated, “pupils are not safe in this school”.

The inspectors said the playground was also not appropriate because it presented too many dangers to pupils…

“For example, inspectors found windows, both single- and double-glazed, that were broken, sharp and accessible to pupils.”

French Court Rules To Remove Cross From Pope’s Statue

A praying Roman Catholic Pope can remain, but the cross above must go.

A  diplomatic spat has erupted between France and Poland over a top court order to remove a cross from a statue of the late Pope John Paul II in a Brittany town because it breached rules on secularism.

Poland has pledged to save the work from the “dictates of political correctness” by having it shipped to the late pontiff’s native country.

Gifted in 2006 to the mayor of Ploërmel, western France, the 7.5 metre-high statue depicts John Paul II in prayer, standing beneath an arch adorned with a large cross.

However, after a decade-long battle, the Conseil d’Etat, France’s top administrative court, has ruled that the cross must be removed from the public space as it violates a 1905 law imposing the strict separation of Church and State.

The Council of State concluded that while the Pope and the arch can remain, the cross must be removed and it has given the town six months to do so.

Upon learning of its fate, Beata Szydło, prime minister of Poland where John Paul II is revered, offered to give the statue a new home to “save it from censorship”.   Telegraph

Secularization of Europe

Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, called the French council’s decision “further evidence of the secularization of Europe.”

Albert Mohler:  “That raises a huge question. How in the world can you have a statue of a pope that isn’t religious?  That just shows you the kind of coercion that courts are now attempting as they are trying their very best to make certain that there is absolutely no public reference to Christianity.”

Anglican Minister: Pray For Prince George To Be Gay

A selfish worldview pushing an agenda,  the triumph of their worldview is all that is important.

A senior Anglican minister has been criticised for saying people should pray for Prince George to be gay to help the Church of England recognise same-sex marriage.

The Very Reverend Kelvin Holdsworth wrote a blog post urging people to pray him “to be blessed one day with the love of a fine young gentleman”.

His comments have been described as “unkind” and “destructive”.

Mr Holdsworth is provost of St Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow.

He is from the Scottish Episcopal Church, which voted to allow gay couples to marry earlier this year.

Same-sex marriages in Anglican churches are banned in England and Wales.

In his blog post, Mr Holdsworth said that if Prince William’s four-year-old son married another man in the future it would help the Church of England become more inclusive.

Comments Not Christian – Unkind and Destructive

Gavin Ashenden, a former chaplain to the Queen and a Christian Episcopal Church missionary bishop, said the comments were not Christian.

“To use prayer as a mechanism for wishing this on Prince George is an unkind and destructive thing to do,” he told the BBC.

“It doesn’t have the prince’s best interests at heart, but uses him as a gender-political football to please 1.7% of the population.

“What is especially odd and incongruous is the fact that it is suddenly OK to pray for someone to be gay, but totally unacceptable to pray for them to be free from being gay and to resume a sexuality that was in tune with their biology.

“This seems not only contradictory but hypocritical.”  BBC

German Christmas Markets: City Protects Pedestrians With Gift-Wrapped Car Barricades

Christmassy anti-terror barricades.

Cities across Germany are boosting security for Christmas market season, following the deadly truck rampage in Berlin last year. The city of Bochum put out massive car barricades – and then giftwrapped them.

Bochum authorities placed a string of 1.2 ton pellet bags in the downtown area to avert potential terror attacks ahead of the seasonal opening of the local Christmas market.

On Thursday morning, however, the bags took on a holiday look, with the city’s official marketing service turning them into novelty Christmas presents.

“For us it was very important to fit in those ugly barriers into the beautiful overall atmosphere,” said the head of Bochum Marketing Mario Schiefelbein.

The move surprised both local residents and the police, as the service reportedly giftwrapped up all of the 20 bags overnight without forewarning. dw.com

In Nuremberg, Christmas trees in large heavy planters.

In Sweden, concrete barriers decked out in holiday decorations.

In England, the city of Hull -“Anti-terror bollards have been wrapped up by little elves and turned into Christmas trees,” reported Hull Daily Mail.

The Church Of Sweden’s New Handbook Says Masculine References To God, Such As “He” And “Lord” Should Be Scrapped So As To Be More “Inclusive”.

Making up their own religion.

In 2015, Bishop Eva Brune wanted to remove Christian Symbols from the Seamen’s Church in Stockholm’s eastern dockyards.  To make it more inviting to all the Bishop wanted to remove all symbols of Christianity, marking the direction of Mecca, and installing a Muslim prayer room.

The Church of Sweden has voted to adopt a controversial new handbook which says masculine references to God, such as “He” and “Lord” should be scrapped so as to be more “inclusive”.

Despite heavy criticism from organisations including Royal Swedish Academy, on Thursday the church approved the new handbook with a large majority.

The Church Handbook  — which was last updated in 1986  — sets out how services, baptisms, weddings and funerals should be conducted, in language, liturgy, theology and music, and is therefore central to the church’s activities.

According to local media, many priests have objected to directions in the new handbook regarding language, which have been added with the goal of making the church “more inclusive”.

This includes instructing clergy to refer to God in a gender-neutral fashion, without “unnecessarily” using the male pronoun “He”, or terms like “Lord”.

God should be referred to as “Mother” as well as “Father” in some prayers, according to guidelines in the manual, which gives the following as an example:

“God, Holy Trinity, Father and Mother, Son – Sister and Brother, and Spirit – Lifeguard and Inspirator, lead us to your depths of wealth, wisdom and knowledge”.

Inclusive

Sofia Camnerin, the deputy chair of Sweden’s Equmenia Church, defended “inclusive language” in the church, stating that the need for it “is based on an awareness of different types of discrimination and inequality in our society.”

“Referring to God as ‘Lord’ consolidates [gender] hierarchies and the subordination of women in a white, Western feminist context,” she argued in a blog.

“Liberation theologists, along with feminist and postcolonial theologians, have been crucial in identifying how legitimising hierarchies leads to violence and subordination,” she said.

But Priest Helena Edlund, who blasted the church as having shown “a total unwillingness to listen to criticism”, expressed concern over the new language guidelines.

“The risk is that we fail to notice the small changes and then gradually over time we find ourselves looking at drastic changes we never would have accepted if they were put to us immediately,” she told Världen Idag last year.

“Is it unlikely, for example, that in five years we will be praying ‘Our Mother Who is in Heaven …’ in our churches? A few years ago, this was called an impossibility, but the church handbook proposal makes it possible.”

Armed Police To Escort Joggers Of Oskarshamn In Sweden For Protection

It is not normal for joggers in a developed western country to be accompanied by armed police for their safety.

Residents of the Swedish city of Oskarshamn will now have the option to be accompanied by armed police officers while out jogging.

Oskarshamn police inspector Peter Karlsson said the programme was designed to ease the insecurities of those who wish to go jogging after dark. Karlsson, who came up with the idea for the programme, said police would form jogging groups and all those who were interested in joining the officers were welcome, SVT reports.

“We will adjust the pace entirely to those who come,” Karlsson said, noting the officers would jog as well as walk with residents who wanted to join.

Karlsson said that he had heard of many residents feeling insecure in the city: “It does not happen so much here, but people are influenced by events around the world and feel unsafe when it’s dark.”  BreitBart

 

White Candidates Banned From Applying For Job At BBC, Where Ethnic Minorities Already Overrepresented

This is not multi-culturalism it is discrimination.  The institutional racism that the left speaks about with no proof can be found – with proof – at the BBC and the UK government Equality Act 2010.

A job advert offering “an exceptional and unique opportunity to train as a broadcast journalist” at the BBC says it is only open to non-white applicants.

Posted to the jobs section of w4mp — the Westminster political, media, and lobbying jobs portal — on Tuesday, the advert states plainly that the year-long, paid internship at the BBC World Service is “only open to candidates from a black, Asian or non-white ethnic minority background”.

The advert was placed by Creative Access, a registered charity which — as previously reported by Breitbart London — offers highly desirable, paid internships at top media companies, from which white people are excluded from applying.

“We help young people, from under-represented communities throughout the UK, to access creative careers,” says the organisation on its website. “Our vision is that in the longer term, our interns will progress to management positions, and in turn bring in others from under-represented communities in alongside them.”

Far from being underrepresented, the BBC’s Equality Information Report for 2017 showed that black and minority ethnic (BME) people make up 14.5 per cent of the corporation’s workforce, while comprising less than 13 per cent of Britain’s population at the 2011 census.

While the BBC claims the drive for greater diversity is to ensure its workforce “reflects the UK”, the company has committed to engineering “a workforce at least as diverse, if not more so, than any other in the industry”….

Under the Equality Act 2010, it became lawful for employers to engage in “positive action”, which Citizens Advice describes as taking “steps to help certain disadvantaged groups access employment or training”.  BreitBart

Transgender Lessons For Two-Year-Olds In Great Britian

This has nothing to do with helping children and everything to do with confusing, corrupting, and using children to further a radical agenda.

Drag queens are being brought into taxpayer-funded nursery schools so that children as young as two can learn about transgender issues.

The cross-dressers are reading nursery rhymes and singing specially adapted songs ‘to teach children about LGBT tolerance’.

Nursery bosses say the sessions are needed so that children can ‘see people who defy rigid gender restrictions’ and grow up to combat hate crime.

They want to target two and three-year-olds to influence them early, as they say at this age children have not yet developed any discriminatory ‘isms’.

The ‘performances’ are the brainchild of Thomas Canham, a Bristol University law graduate and part-time cross-dresser who dismisses traditional notions of masculinity as ‘meaningless’.

Impressionable

But critics last night said the sessions could ‘blind impressionable children of two and three to one of the most basic facts of human existence’.

Leading child psychotherapist Dilys Daws, co-author of the book Finding Your Way With Your Baby, feared they could sow the seeds of confusion in young children about their own sexual identity, with long-term consequences.

Reality

She said: ‘There’s this idea that’s sweeping the country that being transgender is an “ordinary situation”. It’s getting so much publicity that it’s getting children thinking that they might be transgender, when it otherwise wouldn’t have occurred to them.

‘But it’s perfectly normal for most young children to think about being the opposite sex. It’s probably because they are identifying with a parent or sibling.’

Norman Wells, director of the Family Education Trust, said: ‘One of the most disturbing things about the transgender agenda is the way that it tries to distort our perception of reality and deny something as fundamental as the distinction between male and female.’  DailyMail

British Parents Refusing To Send Their Children On School Trips To Mosques Spark Fears Of Islamaphobia

Schools trying to intimidate parents.
Islamophobia” is a made up word by Muslim Brotherhood front group International Institute for Islamic Thought to silence legitimate criticism.

Schools are being issued with guidance about RE trips after it emerged some parents are refusing to allow children to visit mosques.

Families have the right to withdraw pupils from visits to places of worship. Some cite costs, while others are concerned about safety or a ‘political agenda’.

Now Staffordshire’s Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) has produced a document to help schools tackle the sensitive topic. It includes a template letter to parents, outlining the value of helping pupils understand different cultures and faiths.

SACRE said requests to withdraw children from these activities was ‘a serious matter’.

The document states: “While objections are raised about visits to a number of places of worship, they are most frequently about visits to mosques, which raises the bigger issue of Islamaphobia and how this can be addressed.” Sentinal

The students study six different religions.  They could visit a Church, a Synagogue, a Hindu temple, or a Sikh temple.   Why the heavy hand for a field trip to a mosque? That does not sound too inclusive.

In 2013, parents at Littleton Green Community School in Huntington, Staffordshire threatened with having their children (ages 8 – 11) labeled as racist in their education record.  Islam is a religion and not a race.

Parents were ordered to send their children to a workshop on Islam or have them labelled  as racist for the rest of their  school career…

“Refusal to allow your child to attend will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their school career.” DailyMail

That did not go over well.  The school backed down.

Yesterday parents at Littleton Green Community School in Huntington, Staffordshire, said the threat to the pupils aged between eight and 11 was ‘ludicrous’. Gillian Claridge, 55, said: ‘How dare they threaten to brand the children racist at such a young age? It’s going to make them feel like little criminals…

South Staffordshire MP Gavin  Williamson described the threat  as ‘bonkers’ and ‘a very heavy-handed approach’.  DailyMail

Agenda Driven

With the parent’s refusing to allow their children to take field trips to a mosque the Staffordshire’s Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) are coming up with different ideas to expose the students to Islam.

The advice includes tips on how to prepare schoolchildren for an RE trip so they ‘will be comfortable with any differences they see’. Suggestions range from having a representative of that particular faith visit the school in advance through to offering a virtual tour of a place of worship and having discussions in class.

Jihad Recruitment in UK mosques, British jihadists some were converted at quite a young age, acid attacks, honor killings.  pedophilia, Rotherham grooming rape gangs and the coverup, stabbings, running over people with vehicles…. I can understand the parents opposition to their children to visiting a mosque.

UK Government Tries To Hide Discrimination Against Christian Refugees From Syria

The UN should not be recommending and vetting refugees for any country.

The UK government and the UN are discriminating against Christians and other minorities in their refugee programmes according to new Home Office statistics, seen by Barnabas Aid an aid agency which works for persecuted Christians.

Last week Barnabas Aid finally obtained figures proving that the UN has only recommended tiny token numbers of Syrian Christians, Yazidis and other minorities for resettlement in the UK. The overwhelming majority of refugees recommended by the UN have been Sunni Muslims who form the majority in Syria. But Christians and other minorities have been repeatedly targeted for attack by Islamist groups such as IS.

The new statistics, obtained in a Freedom of Information Request to the Home Office by Barnabas Aid, of the religious background of Syrian asylum seekers recommended by the UNHCR for resettlement in the UK revealed:

  • In 2015 out of 2,637 refugees there were only 43 Christians, just 13 Yazidis and only one Shia Muslim. In 2016 the statistics were even worse. Out of 7,499 refugees, there were only 27 Christians, five Yazidis and 13, Shia Muslims.
  • It is widely accepted that Christians made up 10 percent of Syria’s pre-war population and Shia’s around 1.5 percent while there are estimated to have been 70,000 Yazidis in Syria.

Disturbingly, UK officials tried to prevent the release of this information. Barnabas Aid submitted a Freedom of Information request to the UK Home Office in February. And in spite of being legally required to release it within 28 days, officials failed to do so and repeatedly stalled or simply did not answer correspondence.  Barnabas Fund

‘He’s a CHILD!’ Britain Furious As ISIS ‘Threatens To Kill Prince George At School’

As ISIS continues to lose ground and more return to the West,  there will be increase threats to hit the West.

ISIS has threatened to kill Prince George on a social media platform labelled by cyber-security experts as a “breeding ground” for terrorists.

Using the encrypted instant messaging app Telegram the terrorists said: “Even the royal family will not be left alone.”

The brain-washed ISIS followers chilling added a picture of Prince George next to his school, Thomas’s Battersea, in south London, according to the Daily Star Sunday.

There was a national outcry on social media as the news broke of the sick plot. Britons took to twitter to declare their outrage.

One wrote: “There are threats to kill Prince George?! Wtf he’s just a child!!! What is wrong with some people?!”…

The four-year-old’s photo was posted on the messaging app with the caption “school starts early”.

The vile post also included Arabic words taken from a jihadi song which translates as “when war comes with the melody of bullets, we descend on disbelief, desiring retaliation”.

British intelligence have been heavily monitoring the anonymous messaging service in an effort to stop potential terror attacks in the UK.

Cyber-security experts said it it was critical to keep monitoring the service and warned the Telegram app was a “breeding ground” for terrorists…

Barry Spielman, whose internet surveillance company, Sixgill, has been tracking Telegram channels since the start of the year, said: “Our intelligence suggests that these threats are to be taken seriously. Express
