It turns out that everyone sends Christmas cards, including Planned Parenthood. I know this because several years ago a friend sent me a copy of one being sent out by the currently-being-investigated organization. The card was a Christmas homily to "reproductive freedom," beautifully designed with embossed snowflakes and stars made of glitter. And emblazoned across the card was the caption, "Choice on Earth."
The latest undercover Planned Parenthood video is out, and it is horrific. Who can watch these pirates discussing the trafficking of the eyeballs of babies, and not be shaken to the conscience? Any person of goodwill, regardless of religious faith or lack thereof, ought to be able to see the humanity destroyed by this violent organization of pirates. For Christians, though, we ought to remember that behind all of this violence is a question of the person of Jesus Christ. He has been to the abortion clinic too.
Remember: Jesus was not born into a gauzy, snowy "winter wonderland" of sweetly-singing angels and cute reindeer nuzzling one another at the side of his manger. He was born into a warzone. Jesus was chased out of his manger and into Egypt by one of Planned Parenthood's ancestors, King Herod, who also sacrificed Bethlehem's infant children for the sake of power. more >>
Former sportscaster Craig James has filed a lawsuit against Fox Sports in a Texas court over their firing him in 2013 because of comments he made criticizing homosexuality.
Filed in Dallas County District Court on Monday, James accused Fox Sports of dismissing him over expressing his sincere religious beliefs on the matter of sexual ethics.
"Through the actions of its executives, including its president and vice president of communications, Fox Sports hired Craig James as a sportscaster, then terminated him for his religious beliefs — religious beliefs he expressed before working there, more than a year prior," read the suit, in part. more >>
Hillsong Church founding pastor Brian Houston insists that his Sydney-based megachurch has made "absolutely no change" in regard to its "stance on homosexuality and gay marriage," after a critical blog post claimed that two engaged openly gay men were leading Hillsong NYC's choir.
"There has been absolutely no change to Hillsong Church's stance on homosexuality and gay marriage," Houston wrote on his Twitter account early Tuesday morning. The Hillsong Church Twitter account also tweeted his 140-character comment, but in Spanish.
Hours later, a "Hillsong Church statement by Senior Pastor Brian Houston" was published to the ministry's website. In the statement, Houston challenges the recent blog post about two gay men who attend Hillsong's NYC location. more >>
A white Maryland Episcopal priest tells of an encounter with police officers that he, his black wife, also a priest, their bi-racial son and his wife's brother experienced during a recent road trip in a Facebook post that has captured public attention.
The priest, the Rev. Peter Schell of Calvary Episcopal Church in Silver Spring, Maryland, claims that two police officers traveling in an "undercover car," in this case a white dodge charger, stopped their vehicle during a road trip to Florida.

North Korea released video footage on Monday of detained Canadian pastor, the Rev. Hyeon Soo Lim, confessing to various crimes against the Communist State. The megachurch leader, who was taken into custody by DPRK authorities in February, appears to be reading from a script.
In a video recorded on Aug. 2, Lim, the senior pastor of Light Korean Presbyterian Church in Toronto, is seen speaking to a congregation at Pyongyang's Pongsu Church, where he describes his alleged crimes to those in attendance.
"The worst crime I committed was to rashly defame and insult the highest dignity and the system of the republic," said Lim, according to footage posted by the Uriminzokkiri propaganda website. more >>
The CEO of a Seattle-based credit card processing company who promised employees an automatic salary of $70,000 is now renting out his house to try and keep the company afloat.
Dan Price, 31, CEO of Gravity Payments, garnered largely positive press earlier this year for his attempt to address income inequality by giving his employees a minimum annual salary of $70,000, but recently told The New York Times, "I'm renting out my house right now to try make ends meet myself."
Price slashed his own million dollar salary and benefits package down to a base pay of $70,000 to make the company's automatic pay raises spread out over three years work. more >>
