The meeting is organized by the WCC’s Commission of the Churches on International Affairs (CCIA).The blasphemy cases have often resulted in death penalties and mob-instigated violence, following the amendments to the blasphemy law made by then military ruler General Zia-ul-Haq in 1980s. The blasphemy law has often been criticized as vague and arbitrary.In his key note address, Tahseen pointed out the lack of democracy in Pakistan, the history of the country’s participation in the Soviet war in Afghanistan in the 1980s and developments following 9/11 as major factors behind the violence perpetrated in the name of Islam.“In Pakistan we are fighting against the blasphemy law and its abuse. However, it is also important that the international community supports the values of democracy and people’s struggles in Pakistan,” added Tahseen.Tahseen is one of the renowned activists who had been spearheading struggles for the rights of religious minorities, women and other vulnerable groups in Pakistan.Asiya Nasir, member of the National Assembly in Pakistan, also spoke at the session on “Misuse of blasphemy law and human rights violations in Pakistan”. “In the parliament we have been voicing concerns of the Christians and other religious minorities in Pakistan,” said Nasir.“We must go back to the vision of our founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah, who stressed on the rights of all people, regardless of their religion,” she added. Nasir, who is from Baluchistan province, is the only Christian woman representing Jamiat ulema e Islam (Assembly of Islamic Clergy) in the Pakistani parliament.Bishop Samuel Azariah, moderator of the Church of Pakistan, and Dr K. B. Rokaya, president of the Christian Conference of Asia, shared greetings with the participants. Among the other speakers were Moulana Muhammad Hanif Jallandhari, federal secretary of Wafaqul Madares (Association of Islamic Institutions); Rev. Fr Emmanuel Yousaf of the Roman Catholic Church in Pakistan; and Haroon of the All Hindu Minority Alliance of Pakistan.In an opening message, the WCC general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit expressed “solidarity” with Christians and other vulnerable groups in Pakistan, who have been victimized by the blasphemy law.“Reports from Pakistan reveal the fact that repression, intolerance, and fear have become the order of the day in many parts of the country. The minority communities in Pakistan continue to suffer because of the misuse of the blasphemy law in Pakistan, which is used to target different minority communities,” said Tveit.“As we continue to follow with concern the use of blasphemy law against members of religious minorities in Pakistan, it is high time that the international community should address this issue with urgency,” he added.The meeting continues the WCC’s efforts to support religious minorities in Pakistan victimized in the name of its controversial blasphemy law. The public hearing will continue until 19 September and will include a side event at the United Nations office in Geneva.Read also: Church of Pakistan moderator urges government to curb “misuse of blasphemy law” (WCC feature article of 17 September 2012)WCC Central Committee statement on misuse of blasphemy law in Pakistan, September 2009WCC Commission of the Churches on International AffairsWCC member churches in Pakistan WCC public hearing debates ‘misuse of blasphemy laws’ in Pakistan Rector Martinsville, VA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Featured Events Rector Washington, DC last_img read more

At least 17 people are said to have been killed this morning, bringing the total death toll to more than 40.“I am not shocked any more when I see dead people, but can cry any time without any reason,” said Alla Gedz, a member of Christ Church Anglican Church, part of the Church of England’s Diocese in Europe. Speaking to the Anglican Communion News Service, Gedz said: “Today we saw how the dead were pulled out of St. Michael’s [Ukrainian Orthodox] Cathedral and piled near those who died during the night.”Gedz said that she witnessed a gathering of “Titushkas” – a state-sponsored civilian militia – outside the main police station in Kiev earlier this week. The church is preparing to become Patronage Parents to orphans and had to visit a number of government and charity offices: “From early morning till late at night we were at different places in the center of Kiev. We hardly left the center, because all the roads were blocked by the police.“The traffic lights were off. The Metro, the main means of transport in Kiev, has been closed. People have to walk and Kiev is not a small village – it takes hours to get somewhere. All the entrance roads to Kiev are closed.”The leadership of Christ Church has remained neutral about the political position in Ukraine. “To understand Ukrainians, people either have to be born with a Ukrainian heart and know the history or to serve this nation,” Alla said.“We are very grateful for your prayers,” she said, “because being in the midst of the revolution we do have supernatural peace in our hearts.” Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Featured Events Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Press Release Service Rector Pittsburgh, PA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI By ACNS staffPosted Feb 20, 2014 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Director of Music Morristown, NJ Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Albany, NY Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Collierville, TN Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Featured Jobs & Calls Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Washington, DC center_img Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Shreveport, LA Associate Rector Columbus, GA Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Ukraine: ‘I am no longer shocked to see bodies’ New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Bath, NC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

That work started in June, we tried to maintain some of that throughout the last rounds of Super Rugby and now we start to take it up a level. “We want all of these guys to be very clear on what the trademarks are of the Wallabies game and then be equipped and ready to deliver it when asked to enter the arena for Australia, whether it’s for five minutes or the whole 80 minutes of every Test this season. “That is what our objective will be over the next couple of weeks and I can’t wait to get stuck into it,” Cheika said.ForwardsJermaine Ainsley*, Western ForceAdam Coleman, 12 Tests, Western ForcePek Cowan, 10 Tests, Western ForceJack Dempsey, 1 Test, NSW WaratahsKane Douglas, 31 Tests, Queensland RedsSef Fa’agase*, Queensland RedsTetera Faulkner, 2 Tests, Western ForceNed Hanigan, 3 Tests, NSW WaratahsRichard Hardwick, 2 Tests, Western ForceMichael Hooper, 68 Tests, NSW WaratahsSekope Kepu, 80 Tests, NSW WaratahsAdam Korczyk*, Queensland RedsTolu Latu, 4 Tests, NSW WaratahsSean McMahon, 15 Tests, Melbourne RebelsStephen Moore (c), 120 Tests, Queensland RedsTatafu Polota-Nau, 71 Tests, Western ForceTom Robertson, 9 Tests, NSW WaratahsIzack Rodda*, Queensland RedsRob Simmons, 71 Tests, Queensland RedsLopeti Timani, 7 Tests, Melbourne RebelsTaniela Tupou*, Queensland RedsJordan Uelese*, Melbourne RebelsBacksKurtley Beale, 60 Tests, NSW WaratahsIsrael Folau, 55 Tests, NSW WaratahsBernard Foley, 45 Tests, NSW WaratahsWill Genia, 78 TestsDane Haylett-Petty, 17 Tests, Western ForceReece Hodge, 13 Tests, Melbourne RebelsKarmichael Hunt, 3 Tests, Queensland RedsSamu Kerevi, 8 Tests, Queensland RedsMarika Koroibete*, Melbourne RebelsCampbell Magnay*, Queensland RedsBilly Meakes*, Western ForceEto Nabuli, 1 Test, Queensland RedsSefa Naivalu, 7 Tests, Melbourne RebelsIzaia Perese*, Queensland RedsNick Phipps, 52 Tests, NSW WaratahsCurtis Rona*, Western Force*denotes uncapped playerADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Wallabies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO New compilation shows how 132kg former teenage… 43 WEEKS AGO Rugby League’s State of Origin could help… 49 WEEKS AGO Rennie confident that Wallabies youth can… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

State and Federal Officials Monitoring Grain Storage,Transportation, and Propane Situation

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News State and Federal Officials Monitoring Grain Storage,Transportation, and Propane Situation SHARE State and Federal Officials Monitoring Grain Storage,Transportation, and Propane Situation State and Federal Officials Monitoring Grain Storage, Transportation, and Propane SituationTed McKinneyState Department of Agriculture Director Ted McKinney said the state does not have any regulations covering grain storage, but he is quite concerned about the situation, “We are staying close to some of the smaller elevators that may be struggling a bit to make sure good business practices are followed.” He told HAT the real crunch on space is likely to come at the end of harvest, “Right now many grain processors have a real need for grain so they are offering some premiums. This will absorb early deliveries so the real space crunch  may not come until later in the harvest.”McKinney is also keeping a close eye on the propane situation. This year’s crop is being harvested a very high moisture levels and, as a result, will require a good deal of propane gas to dry it for storage. McKinney does not feel, however, we are in line for another propane shortage like we experienced last year, “The information I have from coops is that they are starting this harvest with more propane on hand than last year.”  But he admits, if the crop is very wet, propane usage could be tremendous. He also acknowledged that we will don’t know what kind of winter we will have and what consumer demand for propane will be. Transportation is another issue being watched closely by state and federal authorities.  A shortage of trucks and trains may make it hard to move grain. Secretary of Agriculture  Tom Vilsack told HAT that the federal government is keeping a close eye on the situation, “We have been putting pressure on the railroads to step up their game to make sure they have adequate cars, locomotives, and personnel, and that they improve track so that product can be moved.” McKinney said, however, that federal regulations for CDL drivers licenses make it more difficult to get more trucks on the road to pick up the slack from the backup on the rails, “Getting a CDL is almost as difficult as passing the bar exam.”McKinney admits that space will be tight and that there will be a lot of grain that gets stored on the ground this fall. But, overall, he is optimistic the system will find a place for all the grain. Yet getting all the grain moved will take time and will likely slow an already slow harvest. HAT has received reports of 2 hour delays to unload a semi of grain at some elevators.  Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Sep 22, 2014 Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleIndiana Harvest Should Start Picking Up Steam Gary Truittlast_img read more
