This is a particularly important story. Colette Aikema of Faith Beyond Belief describes what happened when she requested the opportunity to speak to the Lethbridge City Council on their plan to ban so-called “conversion therapy” (which they eventually did). Are Christians in Canada being censored on sexuality? Give this a listen. It’s worth your time. (Additionally, here’s an interview Aikema did on the same subject with Bridge City News.)

Alain Cocq wrote to Emmanuel Macron to receive permission to undergo assisted suicide; when Macron was forced to refuse due to existing legislation in the country, Cocq instead said he would kill himself, a decision Macron said he respected and supported.

National Review has a great explanation of how the Trump Administration pulled off historic peace deals in the Middle East between Israel, Bahrain, and the UAE:

When the three leaders — President Trump, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed — were considering their handiwork over the phone, according to a senior administration official, “MBZ said, ‘Hey, 2020’s been a really tough year. This has got to be the best news of 2020.’ And the president said, ‘Yeah, what do you think, Bibi?’ And Bibi said, ‘Are you kidding me? This is the best news in the last 20 years.’”

Just imagine, for a moment, how the media would have reacted if it had been Obama who pulled this off. Read the whole thing.
