The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments from a group of nuns who want to be exempted from having to indirectly provide birth control and abortion-inducing drugs to employees.

For the McDonald's employee behind the cash register, the request from the man before him initially seems like a joke. One-hundred burgers? Seriously?
However, customer Lance is very serious, and in good customer service fashion, the store sells him 100 hamburgers for around $150 dollars.

An Iraqi law that forces children of Christian converts to be legally recognized as Muslims will lead to Christianity's extinction, says Bishop Rabban al-Qas.
Al-Qas, the senior Catholic Bishop in the Dohuk area of Iraqi Kurdistan, has spoken out against the Iraqi parliament's rejection of an amendment to a law that forces children who have one parent who converted from Islam to be automatically considered a Muslim upon birth.

ABC has ousted Bob Kushell from his post as executive producer and showrunner of the new television adaptation of "The Muppets" after a media watchdog group and parents criticized the network for allowing the new version of the iconic children's series to expose kids to sex, alcohol and drugs.

Texas' highest court will decide whether or not a devout Christian couple can homeschool their children without proving to officials that they are teaching education basics.
The McIntyre family sought injunctive relief from the state supreme court over the El Paso Independent School District's demands that they release their homeschooling curriculum.
Charles Baruch, attorney for the petitioners, argued Monday before the court that the McIntyres were not obligated to detail their curriculum as the Texas Education Agency had already loosened such regulations over private and home schools. more >>
