ISIS has reportedly burned alive a family that tried to flee the violence in Iraq, the DailyMail.com reports.
The mother, father and two-year-old girl were fleeing from ISIS and the violence in northern Iraq as ISIS militants clashed with Iraqi forces. The family of three was captured as they fled from Rashad village, southwest of Kirkuk.
A source in Kirkuk reported, “This evening, ISIS burned a family of three (father, mother and a two-year-old girl) while they were trying to escape from the organisation’s grip in Rashad village. The family was walking through Hamrin mountains to al-Alam village in Salahaddin province.”
This is not the first time ISIS has burned alive those attempting to flee their brutality. The same Iraqi source reported that “ISIS has deployed members to arrest families that run away from ISIS sites southwest of Kirkuk.”
In May, ISIS militants reportedly executed a mother, father, and three children who were trying to flee the militants’ violence.
While one Iraqi leader noted that ISIS controls only 10 percent of the country’s territory, the jihadists attacks have become more frequent in recent weeks. The most recent attack on Sunday in Baghdad killed 23.
Undercover journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, who are responsible for the controversial undercover Planned Parenthood videos, have been acquitted of all charges.
Daleiden and Merritt were acquitted of misdemeanor charges back in June when a judge ruled that they were not guilty of attempting to purchase fetal body parts after they pretended to be employees of a fictitious company seeking bodies of unborn babies for experimentation in order to expose Planned Parenthood’s alleged sale of fetal body parts.
Now, according to LifeSiteNews.com, Daleiden and Merritt have been acquitted of the felony charges brought against them, which included using a fake ID to gain access to a Planned Parenthood clinic.
Daleiden, who is the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, the organization sponsoring his undercover journalist activities, released this statement after getting news of his acquittal:
“Planned Parenthood tried to collude with public officials to manipulate the legal process to their own benefit, and they failed. A year after the release of the undercover videos, the ongoing nationwide investigation of Planned Parenthood by the House Select Investigative Panel makes clear that Planned Parenthood is the guilty party in the harvesting and trafficking of baby body parts for profit.”
Daleiden went on to call the dismissal of the charges against him and Merritt “a resounding vindication of the First Amendment rights of all citizen journalists, and also a clear warning to any of Planned Parenthood’s political cronies who would attack whistleblowers to protect Planned Parenthood from scrutiny.”
If convicted, Daleiden and Merritt could have faced up to 20 years in prison.

For its methodology, this ranking began with schools that are members of the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE), or accredited members of the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS). Theological affiliates of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) were also considered. Christian Universities Online then collected and compared each school’s net price and total cost of attendance. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), average net price is found by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, and institutional grant or scholarship aid from the total cost to attend a given school. The total cost of attendance is the sum of a school’s published tuition and required fees, books and supplies, and the weighted average for room and board and other expenses.
Anna-Rebekah Orr, the editor for the ranking, states that the goal of the ranking is to highlight schools that are very open to grant and scholarship funding as well as keeping overall costs as low as possible. Orr adds, “It is good to see schools put the value of their programs (from a student budget perspective) above the school’s potential income.”
Christian Universities Online (http://www.christianuniversitiesonline.org/) is an online resource for students and families researching Christian higher education. The site publishes rankings and reviews of the best Christian colleges and universities, information about Christian scholarships and financial aid, and many other resources for finding, getting into, and paying for a quality Christian education.

Murdered At The Altar Elderly priest ‘beheaded’ by two knife attackers who take nuns and ‘several’ worshippers prisoner in French church as ISIS supporters celebrate online
Local media claims Father Jacques Hamel, believed to be 86, was brutally murdered by two assailants as terror news agency confirms “two soldiers of the Islamic State” carried out the savage attack

A PRIEST has been beheaded and another hostage is ‘fighting for their life’ after two knife-wielding terrorists took two nuns and several worshippers hostage at a church in northern France.
A third suspect has reportedly been arrested outside the church after a pair of ‘bearded’ attackers were shot and killed after raiding a Catholic mass at 9am in the French town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, near Rouen.
Local media claims Father Jacques Hamel, believed to be 86-years-old, was the priest slaughtered by the duo as A’maq news agency, which is affiliated with ISIS, has officially reported that “two soldiers of the Islamic State” carried out the savage attack.
Supporters of the depraved death cult are celebrating the horrific attack at the church which was reportedly on a terrorist ‘hit list’ which it is claimed French police have known about since April 2015 – following the arrest of an extremist in Paris last year.
According to security sources, one of the attackers was a convicted ‘electronic tag wearing’ terrorist living with his parents.
The suspected terror attackers, who reportedly shouted ‘Daesh’ which is another name for ISIS, were gunned down by police after emerging from the church after the incident which lasted for around 40 minutes.
The horrifying hostage incident is being investigated as a terror attack.
A’maq news agency, which is affiliated with extremist group ISIS, is reportedly set to make an official statement following the incident.
In chaotic scenes, emergency services have been pictured stretchering an unidentified person into an ambulance.
Tim LaHaye, pastor, author and conservative leader, passed away Monday in San Diego following a serious stroke, Tim LaHaye Ministries announced. In a statement attributed to his daughter Linda, LaHaye, 90, “graduated to heaven.”
LaHaye is best known for the series Left Behind, an end-times story he co-authored with Jerry B. Jenkins, which was made into a movie starring Nicholas Cage. Following his passing, Jenkins penned a tribute to the man he called a mentor and friend: “Thrilled as I am that he is where he has always wanted to be, his departure leaves a void in my soul that I don’t expect to be filled until I see him again.”
In addition to the 16 books in the Left Behind series, LaHaye wrote 60 non-fiction books on family, the Biblical view of sex and marriage, biblical prophecy, Jesus Christ and the will of God, and other topics. He founded two accredited Christian high schools, a school system of 10 Christian schools, and San Diego Christian College, and co-founded the Institute for Creation Research, among several other ministries.
LaHaye was a “spiritual giant,” said Jenkins. If missing from a greenroom or book signing, he would often be found praying in the corner with someone he’d just met. “The Tim LaHaye I got to know had a pastor’s heart and lived to share his faith,” Jenkins said. “He listened to and cared about everyone, regardless of age, gende, or social standing.”
Dr. LaHaye pastored Scott Memorial Baptist Church in California for 25 years with his wife Beverly by his side; eventually the congregation expanded to three locations, including Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, as reported on his Facebook page.
David Jeremiah, Dr. LaHaye’s successor at Shadow Mountain Community Church, said that Dr. LaHaye was “one of the most godly men I have ever known,” reported Christianity Today. “Almost every conversation I had with him ended with his praying with me and for me,” Jeremiah said, adding that “Tim’s ministry will continue for many years through the books he wrote, the organizations he founded, and the people that he influenced. But I will miss him when I look out from my pulpit next Sunday.”
Another pastor, Dr. Richard Lee of First Redeemer Church in Atlanta, said the LaHayes gave quietly and generously — including to the church he now pastors. “One of the great things I saw Tim and Beverly do was to launch and fund a mission project in Atlanta,” Dr. Lee said of his church. “It was a mission church that is now a megachurch with 5,000 to 6,000 members. If it hadn’t been for Tim and Beverly, that work would have never started. His life was more generous than most people can imagine.”
Dr. LaHaye is survived by four children, nine grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, a brother, Richard LaHaye, and a sister, Margaret White.
