Missions in the Mall - Women's Day Outreaches 2014
"Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand; beside the gates leading into the city, at the entrances, she cries aloud." Proverbs 1:20-21

Tutu's Case for Euthanasia Will Fuel Prejudice
It is perhaps in the nature of celebrities to champion causes they perceive to be popular. Celebrity bishops are no exception and Desmond Tutu’s support for Lord Falconer’s Assisted Dying Bill is not surprising but deeply disappointing.
Dignity in Dying, the former Voluntary Euthanasia Society, has assembled over 50 actors, sportsmen, entertainers, authors and other celebrities to add weight to their campaign - similar people to those advertisers draft in to provide endorsement for consumer products.
The implication is that we should follow these celebrities and embrace their preferences.
And there is no doubt that so-called ‘assisted dying’ resonates strongly with the spirit of the age and its commitment to the beliefs that personal autonomy should trump all other considerations, that it is better to be dead than to suffer and that there are no moral absolutes.
These celebrities also fit the description of those who make most use of the law in the US state of Oregon – white, healthy, wealthy, college educated people who are used to being in control in life and want similarly to be in control in death.
SAHRC Report Confirms Human Rights Violations at Mavericks
The SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has now submitted a report to the High Court following an investigation into the Cape Town “strip club” Mavericks. The report confirms the suspected human rights violations that were exposed in the Cape High Court battle, but we are disappointed that the report was not conclusive on whether these abuses constituted human trafficking.
In 2012 the Western Cape High Court ordered the SAHRC to probe Mavericks’ inhumane employment conditions. In the final section of judgment, Judge Desai said there was some concern about the living conditions and arrangement of these so-called “exotic dancers”, which could constitute human trafficking.
This was after Mavericks had taken the Department of Home Affairs to court over their refusal to grant certain corporate visas to Mavericks.
Religious Freedom Victories
Victory for pro-lifers in the USA
Yesterday (31 June 2014), the US Supreme Court ruled in favour of the Christian-owned Hobby Lobby Stores, upholding their religious freedom to not pay for abortion-causing contraceptives for their employees’ health care plans.
The new government health-care mandate that is a part of Obamacare, will force all companies to pay for contraceptives for their employees, many of which cause abortions.
This sets an important precedent for other American company owners who are pro-life. The decision is also a clear defeat for the abortion lobby and its radical White House allies. Most important of all – lives will be saved.
