May 6, 2008: China to Lead in Bible Printing, Pope’s Condolences to Myanmar, Tighter Restrictions on Abortion, Amazed named Female Group of Year

May 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Today we learn who will lead the world in bible printing, what the Pope said to Myanmar, and find out about a British lawmaker’s plan to restrict abortions. On the Southern Gospel music front, Amazed has been named Female Group of the Year. Let’s get on to the links…

What country prints the most bibles? In about two weeks, it looks to be China. According to a Christian Post report, the world’s largest Bible printing facility will open in Nanjing, China, prompting some to dub the historic eastern Chinese city the Bible printing capital of the world.

With already over 20,000 dead and tens of thousands of people missing from the devastating tropical cyclone in Myanmar, Pope Benedict XVI has sent a message of sympathy and his condolences. His message:

Deeply saddened by news of the tragic aftermath of the recent cyclone, the Holy Father expresses his heartfelt sympathy. With prayers for the victims and their families, he invokes God’s peace upon the dead and divine strength and comfort upon the homeless and all who are suffering. Confident that the international community will respond with generous and effective relief to the needs of your countrymen, His Holiness asks you to convey his solidarity and concern to the civil authorities and to all the beloved people of Myanmar.

In London, a British lawmaker is seeking tighter restrictions on abortion. Nadine Dorries, a former nurse, wants to restrict legal abortions to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Two-time Diamond Award Duet of the Year winners Amazed added another award to their ever-increasing resume. The up and coming duo was awarded their first Female Group of the Year award at the SGN Music Awards earlier this week.

That’s it for now. See you tomorrow!
