Posting Articles - Bailouts and Persecution

I feel like I am far behind the rest of the world in putting these blogs together. There are two articles that are before me that I feel are worth linking to and commenting. The first is from a financial site entitled "Mortgage Bailout Passes, Finally, Now What." The second is from J. Lee Grady of Charisma Magazine, entitled "In India, They Hack Christians to Pieces."

Now, what does the latter article has to do with the former? In Grady's sub-title he writes "Before you spend time fretting about the drop in the stock market, pray for Indian believers who have been attacked in the state of Orissa." The following quote, which is highlighted in the article is telling "While we are complaining about high gas prices in the United States, some Indian Christians are being doused with gasoline and set on fire." Indeed, we worry about bank bailouts literally hundreds of Indian Christians have lost everything -i.e., homes, possessions, their lives - simply because of their faith. This is truly suffering for the sake of righteousness.

Complaining about my inability to decorate this blog is insignificant in light of what our brothers and sisters are enduring in India's state of Orissa.
