It was just a few days ago when I posted about the latest development in the ongoing saga in Grand Haven, Michigan.
Long story short, the giant hydraulic cross that had been going up several times a year was going to be transformed into a neutral anchor… but local Christians were furious that they were losing a privilege they didn’t deserve in the first place. So a group called “Citizens of Grand Haven” filed a lawsuit asking the court to reverse the city council’s decision.
Their lawsuit was dismissed this week in large part because the organization wasn’t real (it was only created to file this lawsuit) and because the members of that group were anonymous.
Quebec Government Grants Certificate Allowing Raif Badawi to Live There… If He Can Get Out of Saudi Arabia
Now that the Saudi Supreme Court has upheld Raif Badawi‘s punishment of 1,000 lashes, 10 years in prison, and a 1,000,000 Saudi riyal fine (about $266,000) for the crime of “insulting” Islam, there’s a looming question of what, if anything, can be done to rescue him.
On Friday, his flogging was delayed (yet again, thank goodness) for some unknown reason. But until he’s freed entirely, there’s still reason to worry.
