A number of former members of televangelist Ernest Angley's Grace Cathedral church in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, have accused him of being a homosexual and running a cult which encourages female members to get abortions and male members vasectomies. His church said Tuesday, however that, "it's a bunch of lies."
On Sunday, the Akron Beacon Journal highlighted the allegations of 21 former members interviewed by the paper in an article that painted Angley's ministry as a dangerous cult. Angley, who is 93, is also alleged to have personally inspected the genitals of male congregants before and after their surgeries.
A woman who refused to give her name but identified herself as a church secretary told The Christian Post when asked to comment Tuesday: "He said if anybody called just tell them, he's not interested in responding to the article. It's a bunch lies. It's not hindering us. We're being blessed in every service with crowds and he just doesn't want to respond." more >>
The United States Supreme Court has issued an order allowing 13 abortion clinics in Texas to stay open, superseding a state law that requires the closure of clinics that fail to meet basic health and safety standards.
In a six to three decision, the order was given Tuesday as a lawsuit against the state's abortion clinic regulations continues to go through the legal system.
Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. dissented from the five-sentence order, reported Adam Liptak of the New York Times. more >>
WASHINGTON – The Chinese Communist Party, which has maintained its rule over the people of China for over 60 years, is more dangerous than terrorist groups such as ISIS, well-known blind Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng implied on Thursday.
The Chinese government recently celebrated the 34th anniversary of its one child per family policy and the government estimates that over 400 million lives have been "prevented" with about 13 million abortions happening each year.
Chen, a self-taught lawyer who fought for the rights of Chinese women and was imprisoned by the communist government for over four years during the mid to late 2000's, told attendees at a Heritage Foundation event that the majority of the abortion require authorities to physically abduct women and forcibly take them to abortion clinics. more >>
True respect for life requires us to get out of our comfort zone.
Oh, we might say, "I respect life, I vote for 'pro-life' politicians who claim they will work to end abortion." However, in a democracy voting is usually easy and comfortable.
But are we willing to regularly stand outside of an abortion mill on a freezing winter morning or hot summer afternoon praying and witnessing to the humanity of our unborn brothers and sisters? That's harder and somewhat uncomfortable. more >>
Some evangelical climate alarmists are trying to persuade Florida Governor Rick Scott that global warming is a pro-life issue. He should not be fooled.
Christian ethics distinguishes between intentional (Exodus 21:12, 14) and accidental homicide (Exodus 21:13; Deuteronomy 21:5–6).
That distinction alone proves that climate change is not a pro-life issue. more >>
WASHINGTON – As the communist Chinese government boasts that it has "prevented" more than 400 million lives through forced abortions as a part of its one child per family policy, Rep. Chris Smith, R-New Jersey, claims that not only has the Obama administration "turned a blind eye" to China's human rights abuses against women, but has also provided millions in funding to an organization that supports the policy.
Since the Chinese national government implemented its one child law in 1979 that prevents families from having more than one baby, there have been a reported 13 million forced abortions per year, with 35,000 per day and 1,485 per hour. To put things in perspective, New York City, the largest city in the United States, has a population of 8.4 million people. Since 1971, there have been 336 million abortions performed and 195 million sterilizations.
"I respectfully submit that not only is the Obama administration turning a blind eye to the atrocities being committed under the one-child policy, but is even contributing financial support, contrary to U.S. law, to the United Nations Population Fund," Smith told attendees of Thursday's Heritage Foundation discussion on the policy. more >>
