CP World Report: Creationism, Internet Porn, Religious Freedom Rally, Abortion Case

June 11, 2012|9:58 am

Creationism is gaining ground in South Korea. Efforts to challenge and even remove the theory of evolution from the school system in South Korea have been gaining ground after a petition last month seeking to make textbook changes. The South Korean Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has now revealed that publishers will start producing revised editions of textbooks without examples of evolution. Christians in South Korea are still a minority but are rising in numbers. The nation has historically been Buddhist .

Amid reports that British youngsters are rampantly accessing internet porn—and not just in Britain, a petition has gone out, calling on the British Government to force service providers to make porn tougher to access. Signatories want to see an 'adult only opt-in service'. The petition has gathered close to 100-thousand signatures. Petition organizers-- SaferMedia and Premier Media Group--argue that the filter would give parents greater control over what their children are viewing online and stop sexually explicit material coming into the home. According to "Psychologies Magazine", the single largest group of internet porn consumers is children 12 to 17 years old.

A small crowd gathered in Tulsa, Oklahoma to demonstrate against what they say is an assault on religious rights. The "Stand up for Religious Freedom" was a protest over a measure in President Obama's health care plan that requires most private health care plans to provide contraception like birth control. Catholics do not support the use of contraception, and they say the law requiring Catholic institutions like hospitals and schools to provide it for employees is a violation of First Amendment rights.
They say the law forces Catholics to make unfair decisions about health care.

The Supreme Court is expected to hand down a ruling on the constitutionality of the health care law sometime this month.

Anti-abortion activist Linda Gibbons has lost her appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada . The Justices rejected her argument –8 to 1--that she should never have been charged under the Criminal Code for picketing too close to a Toronto abortion clinic. Gibbons maintains she should have been dealt with under civil law ,not charged criminally. The ruling means she will now go to trial IF the prosecution decides to pursue the case. The 63-year-old has been picketing abortion clinics for nearly two decades and has been and out of jail because of it. She has spent a total of nine years behind bars. Last fall, before Gibbons was thrown in jail, Justice S.F. Clements blurted out quote: "your God is wrong". This comment was also a basis of the appeal by Gibbon's lawyer who argued that it was a conditional attack on the Christian God.

IN HEALTH NEWS….

Summer is almost officially here. And hopefully we can all enjoy it, stress free, or almost.
But in the event of a cardiac emergency, how much do you know about first aid?
