Arizona: High School Football Coach Gets Suspended Two Games For Praying With Team (Video)

Video report from ABC15. They talk to one of the fans at the Friday night football game. His response is the quote of the day-

Ray Rice gets two games for 'cold conking his girlfriend,' the coach gets two games for praying. Something is really wrong with that

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- A Tempe school football coach must miss his team's game Friday as part of a punishment for praying with his players.

Tom Brittain is serving the second week of a two-game suspension from his job as coach at Tempe Preparatory Academy.

Headmaster David Baum says Brittain instructed a player to lead the team in prayer after they won a game.

Baum says staff cannot appear to condone religion to students on behalf of the state-funded charter school's behalf.

Some students hung a sign in support of Brittain at the school's homecoming game last week.

Some parents have expressed outrage at Baum's decision. But others say the school is not a religious institution and that Brittain violated school policy

Islamic State Tells Followers To Attack U.S., French Citizens - ISIS Website

BAGHDAD, Sept 22 - Islamic State has urged its followers to attack citizens of the United States, France and other allies who have joined a coalition to fight the militant group, the SITE monitoring website said on Monday.

The United States is building an international coalition to destroy the radical Sunni Muslim group, which has seized swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria and proclaimed a caliphate in the heart of the Middle East.

U.S. and French warplanes have struck Islamic State targets in Iraq and on Sunday the United States said other countries had indicated a willingness to join it if it goes ahead with air strikes against the group in Syria too.

Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani said the military intervention by the U.S.-led coalition would be the "final campaign of the crusaders," according to a transcript published by SITE.


Alleged White House Intruder is Decorated Combat Vet

Omar Jose Gonzalez is a decorated Army veteran who served in Iraq

Fox News
The Texas man accused of dashing through the White House front door Friday with a folding knife is a decorated Army veteran and marksman who served in Iraq, the U.S. military said Sunday.

Omar Jose Gonzalez, who is being held in connection with illegally trying to enter the White House complex, served more than 13 years over the course of two Army stints.

The 42-year-old Gonzalez was discharged in 2003 after serving six years and completing his military service obligation. He retired in 2012 as a result of a disability, after serving roughly seven more years, according to his military record.

The military does not provide details about a soldier's disability due to privacy considerations.

Gonzales, of Copperas Cove, Texas, allegedly jumped the White House fence along Pennsylvania Avenue at 7:20 p.m. Friday, then crossed the North Lawn and opened the mansion’s front door before being apprehended by a Secret Service police officer standing guard.


Pope Francis Slams Extremists for 'Perverting' Religion to Justify Violence

NBC News
TIRANA, Albania - Pope Francis denounced how extremists around the world are "perverting" religion to justify violence as he arrived Sunday in Albania, a Balkan nation where Christians and Muslims endured brutal religious oppression under communism but today live and work together peacefully.

Security was unusually tight for Francis' visit to the majority Muslim country amid reports that militants who trained in Iraq and Syria had returned and might pose a threat.

In his opening speech, Francis said Albania's interreligious harmony was an "inspiring example" for the world, showing that Christian-Muslim coexistence was not only possible but beneficial for a country's development.

 "The climate of respect and mutual trust between Catholics, Orthodox and Muslims is a precious gift to the country," Francis said. "This is especially the case in these times in which authentic religious spirit is being perverted by extremist groups, and where religious differences are being distorted

On Location Video: What the Front-Line Fight Against the Islamic State Looks Like

An unlikely alliance - Kurdish forces team up with the Iraqi Army because of the threat from ISIS

Great video from globalpost on the front lines in Iraq
 — As the world tries to cobble together a coalition of the willing to fight the Islamic State (IS), there's already an unlikely alliance of front-line forces working to hold back the violent extremists.

Kurdish forces now share a significant percentage of their autonomous region's border with IS, since the brutal terror group overtook broad areas of Iraq in the last several months.

The IS threat has created some unlikely alliances. Kurdish forces are teaming up with the Iraqi army to retake areas to which they each lay claim. Even more unusual, given the two countries' antagonistic history, Iranian troops are providing ground support to Iraq from the south, while the US — usually at odds with Iran — is providing fighter jets to bomb IS positions from above.

This is the very front line in the battle against ISIS

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail.
