Burkina Faso is the country that used to be the French colony of Upper Volta. It is a landlocked country about the size of Colorado. It is in west Africa, where it sits on top of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo and Benin. To its north and west is Mali; to its east is Niger. It is a tropical country with a rainy season and a dry season. Nearly all of the rain falls in the south. The middle of the country is savannah, and the northern part is Sahara Desert.
Yes, this is another post about Islamicist terrorism in Africa. I am writing to relay some information about recent violence.

Jihadis murdered over 7,000 civilians in Nigeria last year. They continue the killing spree. It goes unnoticed by western mass media. It gets a little bit of coverage by Christian niche media.
I saw a headline at the Google News aggregator site, in the sidebar for “fact check.” It was clickbait just like all the other “fact check” headlines.... [Read More]
The world takes offense at God. The Pagans hated the idea that their gods have no real power. The Muslims and the Mormons are counterfeits of God. Buddhists say that “God” is not a real person, but a spiritual amalgam. Atheists are angry at the God they don’t believe in.
Communists, being Atheists, are angry at God. So the latest outrage from China comes as no surprise. The First Commandment is outlawed. It started recently in just one church that we know of, but the Party statements indicate that this is a nationwide China policy:... [Read More]
