Advances in genetics may lead to eradicating schizophrenia. Or future schizophrenics.
A recent headline in the Washington Post proclaimed "Scientists open the 'black box' of schizophrenia with dramatic genetic discovery."
While the headline may be a little hyped, what actually happened has the potential to be, as the saying goes, a "game changer" — only not in the way the article would have us believe. more >>
Dallas' city leadership narrowly voted to ban an adult entertainment conference known as the Exxotcia Expo from using the publicly owned convention center.
In a vote of 8 to 7, the Dallas City Council decided Wednesday to not allow Exxxotica to use the public facility for its three-day expo, previously scheduled to take place in May.
The National Center on Sexual Exploitation hailed the decision, given what both Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and the organization know about Exxotica. more >>
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz accused rivals Donald Trump and Marco Rubio of using the "talking points" of President Barack Obama when calling last June's Supreme Court same-sex marriage ruling the "law of the land."
While speaking at the Carolina Values Summit co-hosted by The Reconciled Church Movement and NC Values Coalition at Winthrop University in South Carolina Thursday night, Cruz began by telling the crowd that there are "three fundamental values" that were at the "heart of the gathering" — life, marriage and religious liberty.
As South Carolina voters will cast their primary ballots next Saturday, the Texas senator encouraged conservatives not to listen to each candidate's campaign rhetoric but to instead judge them "by their fruits." more >>
A Pakistani Christian mother of three who was kidnapped and forced into an Islamic marriage with her Muslim landlord last summer has escaped from her captor and is now in hiding, as local authorities have threatened to arrest members of her family if she is not returned to her abductor.
Thirty-year-old Fouzia Sadiq, whose entire family works as bonded laborers at a brick kiln in Pattoki owned by 60-year-old Muslim Muhammed Nazir, was called to come to Nazir's home on one of her off days last July to provide cleaning services because he was expecting guests.
Although Fouzia's family was expecting her to return home later that day, she never returned. As previously reported, Fouzia's brother went to Nazir's home to inquire about his sister and was told that she would return the next day. When Fouzia did not return the next day, her brother went back to the landlord and was told not to return to the home because Fouzia committed to a marriage with Nazir and was now considered to be his property. more >>
The father of five Romanian Pentecostal children who were taken into custody by the Norwegian government last year was finally allowed to visit with his two oldest sons for the first time in nearly three months.
After the five children of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu were taken from their parents custody by the Barnevernet (Norway's child services) last November based on allegations that they spanked their children, the authorities provided the Romanian Pentecostal parents with limited visitation rights.
Although both parents are allowed to visit their infant son, Ezechiel, twice per week, neither parent has been granted permission to visit with their two daughters, Eliana and Naomi. Even though Ruth has been granted permission to visit with their two oldest sons, Matei and Ioan, once per week for two-hour intervals, Marius was not granted any visitation rights with them. more >>
A pro-abortion staff member at Purdue University has allegedly threatened to rape pro-life women in an online comment to an article posted by the pro-life website Live Action News. Following reports of the staff member's comment, the Indiana school is now investigating the claims.
After members of the Purdue Students for Life organization posted flyers around campus last week to bring awareness to the extremely high number of abortions in the African-American community, the group faced backlash from the campus community for putting up the posters during Black History Month.
Jamie Newman, who works in Purdue's Visual and Performing Arts Department as a piano accompanist for the Division of Dance, took to Facebook to voice his outrage with the pro-life group's messaging around the West Lafayette campus. more >>
