    “Dear Pope, Help Nicaragua: Ortega Oppresses the People and the Church.”

    Abuses in Nicaragua by the Ortega-Zambrana regime continue: 18 policemen dressed in black kidnapped the owner of an anti-communist farm, along with his son and two other youths. This action has been denounced by the lawyer and political exile Álvaro Leiva, the executive secretary of the Nicaraguan Association for Human Rights. Leiva also wrote a letter to Pope Francis denouncing the threats and persecutions executed by the dictatorship, which politicizes religion in order to intimidate the Church. The Daily Compass exclusively publishes this letter here.

    The “Love Jihad”: 4000 forced “brides” of violent Islam

    They are young girls who are Christian or Hindu. They are approached by peers, who kidnap and rape them, and then after threatening to publish the rape video on social media force them to convert. All of them are victims of the “love jihad,” the “holy war of love” that is upsetting Kirala. The Indian Catholic Church denounces ISIS’s method of recruiting, but even among Catholics there are progressive groups that deny or minimize.

    Just like China, WHO controls information

    The WHO has launched a campaign against Covid-19 “misinformation”, using artificial intelligence and modern data collection techniques to track down on-line hoaxes and fabrications. This strategy, ironically, has already caused enormous damage in the fight against the pandemic, precisely because it limits comparisons and debate over theories in the face of a new disease. It smacks of censorship methods employed by the Chinese totalitarian regime.

    Kenosha: inevitable conclusion of 3 months of lawlessness

    America has just been struck by another emotional blow to its conservative “heartland”, perhaps with historical consequences this November, following the August 23 shooting of a black man, Jacob Blake, Jr, by a white Kenosha, Wisconsin police officer. This incident is causing a new uprising which peaked when a counter-protestor shot and killed two protestors. In the run up to the U.S. presidential elections on November 3, resolving racial tension among citizens, government, and police, will be the biggest influencer of ballots cast for Donald Trump or Joe Biden, surpassing the handling of ongoing troubles with COVID containment and economic woes.
