14-year-old girl jailed for consensual sex

Abu Dhabi: A 14-year-old girl who initially claimed she was raped by a bus driver was yesterday sentenced to six months in prison followed by deportation.

The case was treated as an instance of consensual sex between her and the driver by the Abu Dhabi Criminal Court of First Instance. The driver received a sentence of one year imprisonment followed by deportation.

Court papers showed that the girl is of Brazilian origin, while her alleged assailant is a 25-year-old Pakistani. The incident reportedly took place in an undisclosed apartment on April 3.

Although the girl's father had initially filed rape charges against the driver, court investigators found that she had been in touch with her assailant before the incident.


"She had been sending very intimate pictures of herself to the accused, some of which included nude pictures, … and also used to send him text messages," the presiding judge, Chief Justice Saeed Abdul Bashir, head of the criminal justice section at the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, told Gulf News.

"In what appeared to be a coordinated effort, security forces stopped the Christians’ bus in Mashhad, the capital of Razavi Khorasan, Iran. Authorities boarded the bus, arrested 15 believers and took them to the Ministry of Information’s central detention center. According to FCNN, the believers were subjected to harsh and inhumane interrogations. After being held for a week, 13 of the Christians were conditionally released after signing promissory notes and posting bail. At last report, the two remaining detainees, 48-year-old Reza and 23-year-old Ehsan Behrooz, remained in detention because they refused to sign any forms or post bail."

ADF attorneys secure victory for religious expression in iconic American parks, monuments

“The First Amendment is the only permit a Christian or any American needs to engage in free speech on public property. The court was right to reach this conclusion,” said ADF Senior Counsel Nate Kellum. “Certainly, it made no sense to enforce unconstitutional regulations that deny free speech at the foot of Mount Rushmore--a place where four men who championed America’s freedoms are immortalized in stone.”

“It is unlawful to engage in expressive activities within any of this country’s 391 national parks unless a park official first issues a permit authorizing the activity. Michael Boardley argues this licensing scheme is overbroad and therefore unconstitutional on its face. We agree,” states the opinion from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. “Requiring individuals and small groups to obtain permits before engaging in expressive activities within designated ‘free speech areas’ (and other public forums within national parks) violates the First Amendment…. We have no choice but to hold the regulations unconstitutional in their entirety.”

“This important decision means that Mr. Boardley and all Americans who visit our beautiful national parks and monuments will be able to exercise their free speech and religious expression rights without further unconstitutional barriers,” said ADF Legal Counsel Heather Gebelin Hacker.

ADF is a legal alliance of Christian attorneys and like-minded organizations defending the right of people to freely live out their faith. Launched in 1994, ADF employs a unique combination of strategy, training, funding, and litigation to protect and preserve religious liberty, the sanctity of life, marriage, and the family. |

Rifqua Bary Turns 18 Let The Bells Of Freedom Ring

Written By Miranda Caverley

Yesterday Rifqua Bary Turned 18. This young Ohio Girl in the past year has had the fight of her life. Born into a Muslim family Rifqua converted to Christianity and when her parents found out, Rifqua claims her father threatened to kill her. Because in the Islam religion if anyone converts to another religion they must be put to death. So Rifqua Fled Ohio with the help of some Christians to Florida where she was living with a Christian Family.

When her family found out that she had fled to Florida A Media Frenzy ensued. This young girl was plastered all over TV News Stations Across the Country. Along with this Rifqua was forced to return to Ohio and be placed into the custody of Franklin County Ohio Children Services. During the months Rifqua was in the custody of Children Services. Rifqua was not allowed to have contact with any one and was not even allowed on the internet. There was a very high profiled Court hearing whether or not Rifqua's parents really threatened to kill their daughter just because she converted to Christianity. The Ohio court tried to get Rifqua and her family to reconcile their differences but in the end the court found that is was in the best interest that Rifqua she stay in the custody of Children Services until her 18 birthday.

During the months of living in the custody of Children Services Rifqua found out she had cancer. She had surgeries and went through chemotherapy treatment. In the end Rifqua was healed from the cancer and it is now in remission. This may have been the end of Rifqua's fight with cancer but another battle was about to begin.

In the past few months it was found that Rifqua is not a legal U.S Citizen. Her parents brought her here when she was a baby when they immigrated from Sri Lanka. When this was found out, it was being said that Rifqua the day she turned 18 would be kicked out of the United States and sent back to Sri Lanka. However, many people have stepped up in protest against this because it is said that if Rifqua is Sent to Sri Lanka She will be murdered in an Honor Killing by Muslims for converting to Christianity. So now proceedings are under way to allow Rifqua to stay in the United States and become a legal Citizen.

When I found out yesterday was Rifqua's 18th Birthday. I broke down into tears and just thanked God that this fight is nearly over for her. I know and everyone who is educated in the Islam Religion knows that what Rifqua was claiming about her going to be killed for converting to Christianity is TRUE. If this young girl did not run away from her family and the Muslim community she would have been killed. And we here in Ohio would have heard another murder has happened in the city of Columbus a senseless act of violence another young life lost. But thank God that is not the headline I heard yesterday! I heard "Rifqua Bary is FREE! Free to practice Christianity"

We at JMC Ministries has been following Rifqua's story since it first began. Writing about it on our Eternal Flame News and Talking about it on our JMC LIVE Show. Our prayer for Rifqua is that she be allowed to stay in the U.S and become a citizen. To share her testimony to all the world and that many may come to have a relationship with Jesus through Rifqua's life. And that Rifqua be able to live a life of peace and safety here in the U.S where we have Freedom of Religion and can practice her faith openly and freely without worry of being killed.

God Bless you Rifqua and God Speed on your Journey in life with Christ.
