ISIS out of Raqqa and a War on Kurds

            (Ed Morrissey of HotAir.com) With lots of news coming out of the Middle East, its time to get the bigger picture into focus. I had a chance to sit down with Ed Morrissey of HotAir.com and do just that, covering the fall of Raqqa and what seems to be a war with the Kurds of Iraq. Find our conversation here. I do my bit at 1:11:50, but if I were you, I’d listen to the whole show. Cheers! Jeff Gardner Picture Christians...

What God Wants

(Mourners at a memorial for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. Photo credit EPA-EFE Photo.) It is October 5th, 2017, and we are just four days out from the horrible shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, October 1, 2017. While we are focusing on lots of particular details; how many guns were used in shooting, how many rounds were fired and how long they were fired, we still have no clue as to what led Stephen Paddock to open fire from a hotel window, raining death and murder...

The Treacherous Image

On Monday, August 14th, 2017, a crowd of several hundred rioters in Durham, North Carolina, pulled down a nearly one hundred year old statue of an unknown Confederate soldier. As they did, the mob chanted “No Cops, No KKK, No Fascist USA.” As if the anarchist timbre of the crowd wasn’t unsettling enough, the scenes of near hysteria that followed the toppling of the statue were truly disturbing. As soon as the bent form of the statue hit the ground, several members of the...

Mosul is free! Sort of.

This is going to be an unusual post. Usually short with some unusual images, two, taken with my Samsung Note 5. I am just back from Iraq, no more than 24 hour from writing this. I have LOTS to tell you and share by way of photographs, too. But I wanted to address the big news, recently released, that the fight against ISIS in Iraq is over, and the city of Mosul is free! Well, not exactly. (The stairs leading up to the tomb of Jonah. Iraq, 2017) Among the many places that I...

Let Her Thrive

This May/June the Picture Christians Project will launch a new initiative called Thrive. The idea behind Thrive is that while the war against the Islamic State in Iraq is being won, the battle for the lives and futures of its victims is just beginning. Thrive will coordinate activities for the Assyrian Christian and Yezidi victims of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, taking real steps designed to help them regain their sense of self and self worth, the both of which have...

Joy

Joy

It’s a new year again. Among all the gifts given and received this Christmastide, the one thing that most people want, at least according to the National Institute of Health – is happiness, joy. And why not? The first gift of the nativity given by the heavenly hosts to the shepherds was the “good news of great joy” because “a savior has been born for you, who is Messiah and Lord.” That is good news, and yet during the Christmastide so many of us fall into depression,...
