Domestic violence is a term used to characterize a pattern of obvious and subtle hash and brash behaviors resulting into physical and psychological abuses between partners in any types of intimate relationships or other members in a household. Domestic violence can be in a cumulative form of physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse or any other type of control mechanism to coerce another individual perpetually. Consequences of domestic violence vary from anxiety, dismay, social disconnect, fragile mental state, tension, breakdown mental and unpredictable consequences such as illness, homicide or permanent disfigurement.
In 1994, the US Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act ("VAWA"). This Act, and the 1996 additions to the Act, recognizes that domestic violence is a national crime and that federal laws can help an overburdened state and local criminal justice system. Available practical information in the US federal domestic violence laws and penalties and the rights of federal victims can be found here: Federal Domestic Violence Laws http://www.justice.gov/usao/gan/documents/federallaws.pdf

We could sufficiently capture the framework for protection against domestic violence by spanning law enforcement policies across three continents, namely Africa, Europe, and America.
The Ebola outbreak, which began 9 months ago, has killed nearly 1300 lives in 4 African countries, affected up to 2000 people, shut down borders, and is becoming a threat to local if not national economies. Though ‘The Economists’ reports patchy precautions following Presidency declared state of emergency in these countries, personal testimonies are disclosing their satisfaction at their government’s serious efforts in protecting their citizens.

The Torch Leadership Foundation’s Cross in Culture Podcast #6
This week, many Americans were shocked by the comments of some people who are seen as conservative leaders regarding two American medical workers who contracted the deadly Ebola virus and were brought back to the United States for treatment. Dr. Kent Brantly, who was working with Samaritan’s Purse at a hospital in Liberia, was brought back to the U.S. on August 2 after he tested positive for Ebola. He is being treated in isolation at the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Another medical missionary, Nancy Writebol, who was working with Service in Mission in Liberia, is also being treated there.
It seems quite obvious that, at the very least, taking care of our own, no matter how dangerous the disease is, is the Christian, American, and humane thing to do. However, based on their comments in media interviews this past week, Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Ann Coulter don’t think so.
In their comments, Coulter and Trump seemed to suggest that those who sacrifice their own personal comfort to bring help to those who are less fortunate do not deserve our compassion when they face affliction because of it. Coulter wrote, "If Dr. Brantly had practiced at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles and turned one single Hollywood power-broker to Christ, he would have done more good for the entire world than anything he could accomplish in a century spent in Liberia." Donald Trump said, "The U.S. cannot allow Ebola infected people back. People that go to far away places to help out are great -- but must suffer the consequences."
The Harbinger "Tree of Hope" dies at Ground Zero in New York, and Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn says "This is a warning from God for America". Also Tonight the 2nd of 3 straight "Supermoons" will take place during the 4 "Blood Moons" Tetrad on 4 High Jewish Feast Days should be a sign from the heavens according to Luke Chapter 21:25. Also Israel and the Palestinians have agreed to a "New" 72 hour cease-fire starting at one Midnight Tonight. Also in Iran plane crash Terhan kills 48 people and many more injured. Also the Ebola Virus continues to spread as a Nun and several Spanish missionaries have died in Liberia. Also the Islamic State has killed 500 Yazidis and buried some victims alive in Iraq. Also a Military Coup is in process in Iraq as troops are trying to take Prime Minister al-Maliki out of power, but many American diplomats are in the Green Zone in danger. These and much more current events along with bible prophecy and the powerful Word of God. Your Host Pastor Paul Begley of Indiana.
