Last Monday, a Philadelphia jury found abortionist Kermit Gosnell guilty on three counts of first-degree murder, one count of manslaughter and literally hundreds of lesser charges. The verdict came after nearly two months of testimony that described, in what the Washington Post called "gruesome detail," the inhumanity and brutality of what can and does happen in American abortion clinics.
It also exposed the incoherence of the legal, moral, and philosophical reasoning underlying the abortion regime.
Gosnell avoided a possible death sentencing by forgoing his right of appeal in exchange for life sentences. more >>
WASHINGTON – About 500 people, representing 37 states, gathered Friday in Washington, D.C., for the "Step Forward for Orphans March." The marchers had firsthand experience with the brokenness of the international adoption system. Some came with the children they struggled to adopt, others marched with photos of the children they have adopted, or want to adopt but are unable to due to political barriers put in the way.
"Today the process is so restrictive, and so bureaucratic and so broken, we are really actually prohibiting families and kids from coming together. It's nuts," Craig Juntunen, president and founder of Both Ends Burning, told The Christian Post as he was marching.
The march, he explained, is the beginning of the "unstuck social movement" which will "form the social and political will to get kids out of orphanages and into families." more >>
The African Methodist Episcopal Church in Alabama will feed 5,000 people, believers and nonbelievers, on Saturday to symbolically re-enact the biblical account of Jesus feeding as many people with just five loaves and two fish.
The Ninth Episcopal District of the AME has prepared 5,000 fish sandwiches to be fed to whoever comes for the special event called "Feed the 5,000" between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on the campus of the defunct Daniel Payne College, an AME school in Birmingham.
"The whole idea is that in this changing world, God still speaks," AL.com quotes AME Bishop James L. Davis as saying. "This is our way of saying God's word is still the same. He still does what he's always done. He still will do what he's always promised. We dramatically show that through the feeding of the 5,000." more >>
An analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office shows that President Obama's 2014 budget proposal would reduce borrowing by $1.1 trillion by 2023 thorough increasing taxes by nearly the same amount.
President Obama's budget, which arrived on Capitol Hill in April, would result in a moderate spending cut as it would use nearly $6 in higher revenues for every $1 in reduced spending to achieve it, according to a report released by the CBO on Friday.
The report also says the savings include those from troop reduction in Afghanistan and other overseas contingency operations, without which the plan would increase spending by about $700 billion over the next decade. more >>
The documentary film "Hating Breitbart," that takes a look at the late online media mogul Andrew Breitbart, opened in limited release this weekend in its less-cursing, PG-13 format after its producers decided to intentionally target Christian moviegoers as well, says the movie's director.
"We wanted to capture Andrew as he was: loud and passionate when he saw liberal hypocrisy in the mainstream media. But we also wanted to make sure that all Americans can see what a fascinating man he was so we decided to create a PG-13 version. Andrew had tremendous respect for the Christian community and its leadership and I know he would have wanted them to be able to enjoy this movie as well," said Director Andrew Marcus in an exclusive statement to The Christian Post.
Recent screenings leading up to this weekend's release of "Hating Breitbart" have included stops at Christian colleges such as Wheaton College and Biola University. Additionally, the film was shown at the Colorado-based Focus on The Family as well as a screening for journalists from The Christian Post and World Magazine. Singer Pat Boone, one of Hollywood's most prominent Christian leaders, was also given a special screening. more >>
