"The Caged Virgin" by Ayaan Hirsi Ali - She has escaped radical Islam only to find her horrific story ignored by feminists, law enforcement, and governments in the name of tolerance. She's written a report in the current Newsweek about the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East - also practically being ignored by the powers that be. She lives in hiding because of threats on her life.

Holland's shameful treatment of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

"Israel isn't what's wrong with the Middle East. Israel is what's right with the Middle East" —Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu (jpost.com, Jan 23, 2014). @CASEFORREASON. Some refuse to be swayed by facts and sound reasoning. That is by definition irrational and unreasonable. Case for Reason is dedicated to those who can think rationally for themselves. #Israel #Palestine #Zionism #PLO #Palestinian #AntiSemitism #AntiZionism #Hamas #JewishState

Love this image for Deborah. Who says there aren't strong female characters in the Bible. Read Judges 4 and 5. She was a judge of Israel, a prophetess, a wife, a warrior, even the commander of the army wouldn't go to war without her.

February 1912. Port Royal, South Carolina. Bertha, one of the six-year old shuckers at Maggioni Canning Company. Began work at 4 a.m.

"One of my favorite phobias is that girls, especially those whose tastes aren't routine, often don't get a fair break. It has come down through the generations, an inheritance of age-old customs which produced the corollary that women are bred to timidity." -- Amelia Earhart

"67 years ago today (April 9), Dietrich Bonhoeffer was hanged by the Nazis. "What has become evident in [reexamining the role of the German Church during the Nazi era] is the depth of the chasm between the ideals the Church had always set for itself and the way it responded to the brutalization of the German government under Adolf Hitler. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was one of the few church leaders who stood in courageous opposition to the Fuehrer and his policies [U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum].""

Almanzo and Laura Ingalls Wilder 1948! I love Little House on the Prairie!

I'm not much of a guy to read 600 page biographies, but this one was insane haha. Couldn't put it down. He was the Christian Jason Bourne.

"Is it all right for the government to allow the murder of an innocent human being? The evidence I see tells me the unborn is a human being. From the moment of conception, a new life comes into being with a complete genetic blueprint. The sex is determined. The blood type is determined... the moment that I learned that the unborn was a human being, not part of the woman's body but its own individual human being, I have no choice but to defend the most vulnerable among us." - Kathy Ireland

Cornelia "Corrie" ten Boom (Amsterdam, April 15, 1892 – Orange, California, April 15, 1983) was a Dutch Christian Holocaust survivor who helped many Jews escape the Nazis during World War II. In 1970, Ten Boom co-wrote her autobiography, The Hiding Place, released in 1971 and which was made into a film of the same name two years later starring Jeannette Clift as Corrie. (from Wikipedia)

Irena Sendler 1910-2008 A 98 year-old Polish woman named Irena Sendler recently died. During WWII, Irena worked in the Warsaw Ghetto as a plumbing/sewer specialist. Irena smuggled Jewish children out; infants in the bottom of the tool box she carried and older children in a burlap sack she carried in the back of her truck. She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking covered the kids’ and infants’ noises. Irena managed to smuggle out and save 2500 children. She eventually was caught, and the Nazis broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar buried under a tree in her backyard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and reunited some of the families. Most had been killed. She helped those children get placement into foster family homes or adopted. Last year Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected. Al Gore won- for a slide show on Global Warming.... More Injustice
