An 18-year-old student from an academic institution in Wisconsin has accused a professor of forcing her to omit references to the Bible for a class assignment.
University of Wisconsin-Baraboo/Sauk County Professor Annette Kuhlman is guilty of religious discrimination for not allowing biblical references in a sociology project, student Rachel Langeberg claims.
GOP Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has joined the chorus of conservative commentators condemning the revelations that Planned Parenthood is allegedly selling aborted baby body parts, and repeated his vow to defund the organization if he is elected president.
"Planned Parenthood has proven to be a repulsive, revolting, stomach-churning enterprise that should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Destroying innocent human life and harvesting human organs is beyond barbaric — it is unimaginably immoral, grotesque, and evil," Huckabee told Breitbart News on Wednesday.
"What makes America unique is our respect and sanctity of the value of every single human being. Planned Parenthood does not represent these values and deprives millions of children of their God-given right to life and liberty." more >>

In the middle of the Cold War, then-Governor Ronald Reagan quoted the above warning in his 1964 classic speech, "A Time to Choose." Similar to Winston Churchill awakening Great Britain amidst the growing Nazi threat in 1940, the "Great Communicator" sensed a gathering storm and challenged multitudes capitulating to big-government socialism and Communism.
For eight years, I've served with other courageous leaders investing a significant portion of ministry to compassionately confront the dangerous acceptance of sexual behavior that the Bible labels as "moral impurity", "degrading", "shameless", "indecent", "unnatural" and "perversion" (Rom.1:24-27). While we are to reach out in love to every individual, we must resist an agenda dishonoring our Creator, undermining the sanctity of marriage and attempting to redefine it so homosexual unions, polyamory and polygamy are considered acceptable, normal and beautiful. more >>
TLC canceled its long-running reality TV series "19 Kids and Counting" on Thursday, two months after the show was suspended in the wake of a decade-old molestation scandal involving Josh Duggar and at least two of his sisters.
In a statement released today, TLC confirmed that the Duggar family's reality show "will no longer appear on the air" after 10 seasons.
"19 Kids and Counting" followed the lives of the Arkansas-based Christian family whose conservative values and faith-inspired lifestyles made them an instant hit when they first appeared on air back in 2008. more >>
Archbishop Anthony Fisher of Sydney has argued that Christians who hold a traditional view of marriage are being "bullied" by society into changing their minds on gay marriage, noting that couples find themselves in an "uncomfortable position."
"There are voices in our culture that no longer think marriage need be for life, or be open to children, or be exclusive, or be between man and wife," Fisher said at a homily, according to a Catholic News Service report on Wednesday.
He added that "some politically, culturally and commercially powerful forces are determined to silence any alternative to the politically correct position in this matter; to bully us all into accepting the deconstruction and redefinition of a fundamental institution; and to relegate questions of what marriage is and is for as secondary to an homogenizing 'equality.'" more >>
While the recent nuclear deal between Iran and six major world powers has stoked debate in the U.S. over the Obama administration's negotiating tactics, Iranian Christians are reportedly "thanking Christ" and view the agreement as an "answer to prayers," one Iranian priest has said.
"I can certainly say that all Christians, along with all the Iranian people are rejoicing because their prayers were answered," Chaldean Iranian priest Hormoz Aslani Babroudi, national director of the Pontifical Missionary Society of Iran, told Fides News Agency.
"From now on it will be easier for the world to have a positive outlook toward Iran, the desire for harmony will prevail and it will be easier to show everyone that Iran is not what some media networks report. We can work and use science for the good of the country, we can develop technologies to live better." more >>
