Russia Bans Internet Pornography
Russia’s ban on internet pornography is the country’s latest move to strengthen Biblical family values. This is one of at least 5 pro-family pieces of legislation to be enacted in Russia in the last three years.
According to a report on International Business Times, a Russian court has instructed Roskomnadzor, the country’s state-controlled Internet watchdog, to block 136 websites hosting “pornographic material” under the terms of international conventions signed in 1910 and 1923. Vague language in the ruling, first reported by the newspaper Izvestia, means all Internet pornography could soon be illegal in Russia.
Assisted Suicide Court Case Ironic and Tragic in the Midst of Xenophobia Murders
Whilst the country is reeling from xenophobia riots, violence and murders, it is ironic and tragic that the pro-euthanasia group Dignity SA, wants to help someone to murder themselves.
Gateway News reports that lobby group, Dignity SA, is planning to bring an urgent application to allow doctor assisted suicide of cancer sufferer, Advocate Robin Stransham-Ford, before the Pretoria High Court, possibly today or as soon as possible. Whether they win or lose, it is expected the case will be appealed by one side or the other and go to the Constitutional Court.
A Christian Response to Xenophobia
"You shall neither mistreat a stranger, nor oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt." Exodus 22:21
Two Ethiopians were petrol bombed and a 14 year old boy murdered in a wave of xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals in KwaMashu and Umlazi in KwaZulu over the last 2 weeks.

Xenophobia is the fear and hatred of foreign people.
Andrew Murray and the 1860 Revival in the Cape
The Andrew Murray Monument in Wellington has been defaced. It is unlikely that the cultural terrorists responsible are aware of the life and legacy of Andrew Murray and how he sought to bless Africa through the Africa Institute, which he established. Nor would they be aware of a most remarkable Revival which swept across the Cape in 1860 and mobilised missionaries.
