Family Research Council – FRC – EVENT 

Book Release Event with Virginia Prodan, author of Saving My Assassin

As a young attorney, Virginia Prodan searched for the truth. When she finally found it in the most forbidden book in all of Romania, she accepted the divine call to defend fellow followers of Jesus Christ against unjust persecution in an ungodly land. For this act of treason, Virginia was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, and placed under house arrest, even coming within seconds of being executed under the orders of Ceausescu himself. How Virginia not only managed to defeat her enemies time and time again but also help expose the appalling secret that would lead to the demise of Ceausescu’s empire is an extraordinary story of human courage, one woman’s search for truth, and her defiance in the face of evil.

On Tuesday, June 7th at 10 a.m., author and international human rights attorney Virginia Prodan will speak about her experience as a human rights lawyer in Romania during the rise and rule of Communist Dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu. She will also comment on the disturbing parallels she sees regarding religious liberty in Romania during the ’80s and what is happening in America today.

This event will mark the official release of Virginia’s new book, Saving My Assassin (Tyndale House). Reading like a novel and filled with intrigue and surprises, Virginia’s book communicates well the spirit of her surroundings while she daily risked her life in Romania.

FRC President Tony Perkins wrote, “Virginia Prodan stood fearlessly against an oppressive communist regime and the lawless leadership of Nicolae Ceausescu. She chose to obey God rather than man and changed the course of history! Virginia mastered her fear of earthly consequences for the glory of God and now inspires her readers. Beyond inspiration, Saving My Assassin is a call to action: to live above fear — and to witness the miraculous. I believe this is the message for this generation of Believers, we must rise above the fear of man to see a miraculous move of God.”

Riveting and Courageous Story of Life as a Christian in Romania Under Ceausescu

Riveting and Courageous Story of Life as a Christian in Romania Under Ceausescu

5.0 out of 5 stars

By Pamela A. Ecrementon May 23, 2016

“As a member of this church, how would you respond if you were asked to make that choice? Would you remain with Christ or become a Communist? Would you judge or forgive your brothers and sisters if they betrayed Christ, Virginia? How would you prepare yourself for a day like that?”

Such were the questions posed to Virginia Prodan after she made the critical decision to accept Christ. These were asked of her by Constantin, pastor of a Christian church, under persecution during the brutal Communist regime of Nicolae Ceausescu in Romania.

Her account is the heartbreaking and courageous true story of her life and the lives of many Christians during the evil empire of Nicolae Ceausescu in Romania that lasted nearly 20 years until his execution in 1989.

It unfolds in one suspenseful page after another of her newly released book, Saving My Assassin.

5.0 out of 5 stars – A Memoir Worth Reading

By Danion,  May 22, 2016

Saving My Assassin – http://www.amazon.com/dp/1496411838 – is Virginia Prodan’s story of working as a Christian attorney in Communist Romania and in America.

Growing up, Virginia endured extreme mistreatment from her mother, but this paled in comparison to the trials she would face as an adult.
When Virginia was young, she had a close encounter with the Securitate, Nicolae Ceausescu’s brutal Communist police officers, as she was entering a church. This experience left her fearful of the Communists, and she rarely returned to church after it.

Upon graduating high school, Virginia took and passed all of the necessary exams to enter law school. Facing many struggles, Virginia pressed on and managed to graduate and get a job learning under another attorney.

During this time, Virginia found faith in Christ and began to regularly attend church and read the Bible with her two young daughters at home.

After becoming a Christian, Virginia began to take on cases defending Christians who have been unfairly arrested by the Securitate.

Virginia won many cases, upsetting the Securitate and Ceausescu himself. Virginia is interrogated, beaten and ultimately, Ceausecu assigns a man to assassinate her.  As the title suggests, Virginia shares the gospel with her assassin and leads him to Christ. Her struggles did not end after that night, however.

Virginia faced many more months of persecution before she had a chance to escape it all.

Saving My Assassin is a story of resilience and deeply strengthened faith in Christ. Virginia faced evil head on at the hands of wicked men, and she relied fully on Christ to give her strength.

Regarding her struggles, Virginia writes:

I suppose none of us know how high we can jump until a skyscraper obstructs our way, how fast we can run until a lion chases us, the value of our freedom until confinement restricts our movements, or how precious hope is until someone shatters our dreams.

Saving My Assassin will encourage Christians to keep growing in Christ, and to rely on Him through every trial and triumph. Virginia endured unrelenting evil, yet she clung to Christ in the midst of it all.

This is a memoir everyone should dig into.   Saving My Assassinhttp://www.amazon.com/dp/1496411838

I received a copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

Is the Supreme Court above Politics?

Is the Supreme Court above Politics?

Yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case that many believe could determine the fate of President Obama’s legacy on immigration.

The case, United States v. Texas, No. 15-674, relates to a program intended to allow more than four million unauthorized immigrants, parents of citizens or of lawful permanent residents to apply for a program sparing them from deportation and providing them work permits.   This program, was announced in November 2014, and is called Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA.

The case was brought to the Supreme Court by Texas and 25 other states, and could produce a remarkable ruling on presidential power and immigration policy.

According to the New York Times –  http://www.nytimes.com/topic/organization/us-supreme-court – The Supreme Court yesterday seemed sharply divided over a challenge to President Obama’s plan that would shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation and allow them to work in the country legally.

U.S. - SC

Several Supreme Court Judges asked questions or made remarks.   Justice Kennedy said “It’s as if the president is defining the policy and the Congress is executing it. That’s just upside down.”

CNN – cnn.it/1XEgie – reported, that  Justice Alito asked :

” How is it possible to lawfully work in the United States without lawfully being in the United States?”

Justice Roberts added: “I mean, they’re lawfully present, and yet, they’re present in violation of the law?”
Several groups of people outside the Supreme Court,  demonstrated walking up and down the sidewalk, holding banners and chanting mantras like “Sí se puede,” Spanish for “Yes we can.”

Supreme court demonstrators

We all agree that the Supreme Court decision will have a major impact on the 2016 election.     But, many wonder:  Is the Supreme Court above Politics?

I am an optimistic person.    I will wait with confidence the Supreme Court decision on yesterday’s  case.

What do you think?    Would like to hear from you.
