The Faith & Freedom Coalition, a conservative nonprofit group, has filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood, Colorado State University, and a prominent fetal tissue supplier that seeks to force the return of state tax dollars that were used by the college to obtain aborted baby tissue for research.
Nick McIntyre, the executive director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition of Colorado, told The Christian Post on Monday that his organization obtained records from the university through the Colorado Open Records Act that indicate the school paid thousands of tax dollars to obtain aborted baby tissue from the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains and Advanced Bioscience Resources, a California-based company that procures aborted baby tissue for research institutions.
Although Colorado law forbids tax dollars from being used to fund abortions, public records show that the state school paid Planned Parenthood as much as $160 per specimen and paid ABR nearly $97,000 from 2010 to 2015 for aborted baby tissue. more >>
They said it could not be done. In 2014, a little known Christian film named "God's Not Dead" became a surprise blockbuster.
In November, the minds behind the apologetic box office hit have released a trailer for the much anticipated sequel, slated to hit theatres next year.
With a title that continues to build off of the lyrics of the Newsboys song, "God's Not Dead 2: He's Surely Alive" follows a fictional account of a teacher being sued for mentioning Jesus in her public school classroom. more >>
A Maryland veterans memorial with a large cross is constitutional, a federal court ruled.
U.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow ruled Monday that the Bladensburg World War I Veterans Memorial could include a forty-foot tall Latin cross.
In her decision, Chasanow concluded that the Bladensburg cross was constitutional since it passed the legal precedent of not having an exclusively religious purpose. more >>
The Roman Catholic Bishops of Northern Ireland have said that they are "shocked and disturbed" after the High Court in Belfast ruled that unborn babies are not human life.
"Having met with many parents whose unborn child with a life-limiting condition has lived for hours, days, weeks and even years, bringing immense happiness, we are profoundly shocked and disturbed at the judge's words that such children are 'doomed,'" the bishops responded in a statement on Monday, published by The Irish Times.
"The judge compounds this by saying that 'there is no human life to protect.' By any human and moral standard, these children are persons, and our duty to respect and protect their right to life does not change because of any court judgment," they added. more >>
Deion "Prime Time" Sanders says he's submitting to Jesus after celebrating an off-field victory in the form of winning a $2.2 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, Pilar Sanders.
Pilar, the 41-year-old actress, previously accused Deion, the 48-year-old NFL Hall of Famer, of abusing her and their children. Now, TMZ is reporting that Pilar has to pay $2.2 million after defaming Deion's character, which also cancels out any money the athlete would have paid in their divorce settlement.
While TMZ is reporting that Deion feels "relief and vindication," he took to Twitter to retweet a message from the Bossip blog about the lawsuit before revealing how his life changed when he surrendered to Jesus. more >>
City Harvest Church founder and leading pastor Kong Hee has announced that he will be appealing both against the conviction and the eight-year prison sentence he was handed down for misusing close to $35-million in church donations for the popstar career of his wife.
"Whilst I respect the court's decision, there are points which appear to be erroneous and warrant appeal. I will therefore be preparing to file an appeal against both my conviction and sentence. Earlier today, I was informed that the prosecution has also filed an appeal against the sentence imposed by the court," Kong told supporters in a Facebook message late last week.
"My lawyers will also address the prosecution's appeal at the appropriate time. I sincerely need your prayers during this process for a favorable outcome. The road ahead is long and arduous, but God's grace is sufficient for me," he added. more >>
