LGBT groups and their allies in Congress are pushing for a sweeping piece of legislation that if enacted would, according to critics, limit religious freedom in the United States.
Known as the Equality Act, the bill would add the classifications of "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to the 1964 Civil Rights Act, as well as expand the level of businesses that must adhere to the Act.
Congressman David N. Cicilline, a Rhode Island Democrat who is an openly gay member of Congress, introduced the anti-discrimination legislation last Thursday. more >>
As legendary Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tim Brown was granted all the fame, fortune, success and women he needed as he earned the nickname of "Mr. Raider" in the '90s, there was one thing that was desperately missing from the hall-of-famer's life that made him dislike what he saw in the mirror — a relationship with Jesus.
The 49-year-old Brown, a 2015 inductee into the Pro Hall of Fame who is sixth all-time in NFL career receiving yards, explains in his new book, The Making of a Man: How Men and Boys Honor God and Live With Integrity, that despite all his success, he didn't consider himself to be a man until he put his full faith in the Lord during the summer before his ninth NFL season.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Brown explained that he had a strict religious upbringing attending the Church of God in Christ services about three times a week as a child. But by the time he went off to college at Notre Dame and became the first receiver ever to win a Heisman Trophy, he felt ashamed to call himself a Christian because he was not guarding his "spiritual heart" or living by God's design. more >>
Three major American corporations have told the nation's largest abortion provider that they no longer want to be listed as corporate sponsors after two recent viral videos purport to show representatives of Planned Parenthood discussing the sale of baby body parts.
Officials from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox have told The Daily Signal, a news site founded by the conservative Heritage Foundation, that they have asked the abortion giant to remove their companies' names from the abortion provider's list of corporate donors.
The move comes after the Daily Signal posted the names of Planned Parenthood's 41 corporate sponsors — a list that is no longer available on the Planned Parenthood website — following the controversy surrounding the recently released undercover videos by Center for Medical Progress. more >>
An appeals court panel has ruled unanimously against a family-owned pharmacy suing Washington for an exemption to the state's birth control mandate.
A three judge panel from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that Ralph's Thriftway must provide birth control items like the Plan B pill, which could be an abortifacient under certain circumstances, reversing a lower court decision.
Arguments were heard last November before Judges Susan P. Graber, Richard R. Clifton, and Mary H. Murguia. Graber authored the panel's opinion. more >>

Legislation has been introduced in both the House and Senate that would prevent the federal government from giving the controversial abortion-giant Planned Parenthood any taxpayer funds for a period of one year, unless the organization can assure the money will not be used to perform abortions.
Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., introduced the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 in the House Tuesday, while Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., introduced the same measure in the Senate Wednesday afternoon. The House bill has 80 original co-sponsors, while Lankford is still gathering Senate co-sponsors.
The bills also make clear that if Planned Parenthood is given funds on the grounds that it won't be used for abortions and actually uses federal funds for abortions in cases other than rape, incest or to save the mother's life, the secretary of Health and Human Services and the secretary of Agriculture are responsible for seeking repayment from the organization. more >>
