White evangelical affection for President Donald Trump can be explained by three frameworks, Molly Worthen, professor of history at UNC-Chapel Hill, described Nov. 6, 2017, at Faith Angle Forum — selective libertarianism, women and authority, and presuppositionalism. Selective Libertarianism Many evangelicals (by which she means white evangelicals) hold a selective libertarian view of government, Worthen says. They’re…

Ado-Ekiti— Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has raised the alarm that some Fulani herdsmen have started a surreptitious move into the outskirts of Ekiti with an alleged aim to kill and maim people.
Gov Fayose with hunters from across Ekiti State.
Fayose, who said the move was targeted at rubbishing his anti-grazing law, said the invaders would be met with stiff resistance from the people of the state.
The governor said this, yesterday, when he met with local hunters from 16 local government areas of the state.
He therefore charged them to secure the state even as he promised to support them in the exercise.
Fayose, who was decked in full military camouflage at the meeting, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently declare rampaging herdsmen as terrorists.
Calling on the President to declare herdsmen terrorists, he said: “Mr. President, declare herdsmen as a terrorist group now, they are mindless and devilish.”
The governor, who equally hosted Benue indigenes residing in Ekiti, expressed his sympathy for them.
“I sympathise with our brothers, sisters and people from Benue State that are mourning the brutality of those who killed their kinsmen”, he said.
The governor, who observed a minute silence for the dead in Benue, said: “This (uniform dressing) is done to charge our hunters to secure the state. I saw pictures of the killings and I wondered if those were human beings. I asked the questions if people could kill human beings that way. They will find no peace. This is no tribal killing but that of mindless people. Blood of the departed will find those people and they won’t know peace. It is the duty of the federal government to protect its people. We are not protected.
“We have never had it so bad. People must come to leadership with conscience. The Federal Government should have sent the army not the police. Governor Ortom should fasten his belt and protect his people. Those seeking for help in Abuja would not find it because Abuja also needs help. I sympathise with you, this is your home and nobody would kill you. You are all safe here.”
Charging the hunters, who were excited to meet him, governor Fayose said: “ I have received letters that the Bororos have entered our reserves they want to violate our laws. I want to call on the attention of the federal government that they have come and wanted to kill men, kids and women in Ekiti. We will not allow that to happen. I want you hunters to go back to protect your people, be vigilant, and ensure everyone entering our state is screened.”
“No one in the guise of grazing should enter our land after 8pm. For our brothers who harbour criminals, tell them Ekiti is a no go area. If your plan is to make this state ungovernable you are wasting your time. I have called this meeting for everyone to be vigilant. I will begin to support you now to secure Ekiti.”
He, however, warned the hunters not to take “laws into your hands but defend our people.”
After several days of camping in southern Spain (see my previous post) it was time to collect the last of our fellow travellers—they were arriving on a flight from London to Gibraltar. Suddenly we were a group of 28 strangers on the road to Algeciras, Spain, which is where the ferry would depart for Africa. […]
