Recent reports reveal the costly socio-economic and human reality of four decades of gendercide in China. Gendercide is sex-selective abortion, which has resulted in the murder of girls (born or unborn) at disproportionately higher rates than boys. Gendercide is a direct result of China's One Child Policy.
If the consequences of China's policies are not seriously heeded, tragedies of unknown proportions will occur in America—as they are already occurring around the world.
In 1964, the first national Family Planning Office was established to oversee China's fertility reduction program, which included implementing a One Child Policy (one child per couple). To enforce the policy, the government instituted mandatory birth control and abortion (often referred to as "remedial measures"). more >>
The Department of Justice has been accused of religious intolerance and viewpoint discrimination after workers were sent an email directing them to verbally affirm homosexuality, according to a religious liberty law firm representing a DOJ whistleblower.
Liberty Counsel said DOJ employees were emailed a brochure called "LGBT Inclusion at Work: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Managers." The brochure was created as a resource from DOJ Pride, an association of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees of the DOJ.
A Department of Justice spokesperson did not return calls seeking comment. Fox News also reached out to DOJ Pride for comment – but emails were not answered. more >>
The Bible directs us to "look well to the ways of [your] household." (Prov. 31:27) and, for some families that means schooling them at home. But for one family from Germany, that choice could mean a whole lot more.
Uwe and Hannelore Romeike, of Germany, are Evangelical Christians who made the decision to home school their children to combat bullying and humanistic ideas with which they disagreed. The choice would go unnoticed in the United States, but in Germany, home schooling is illegal.
Because they were subject to criminal prosecution and thousands of dollars of fines, the Romeikes left German in 2008 to seek asylum in America. They settled in Tennessee where they were granted that asylum by immigration Judge Lawrence O. Burnam. Their protection was short lived however, when the Board of Immigration Appeals overturned the grant in 2010. more >>
When it comes to Tim Tebow and his supporters, it appears no circumstance goes wasted as an opportunity to encourage others – even in times of unemployment from the NFL for the Christian athlete.
"I know Tim Tebow must be frustrated that he hasn't found the right team yet and is still searching. Here's the advice I would give to Tim as he waits for his new team," wrote Tony Dungy, retired NFL coach and national spokesman for All Pro Dad, in his blog.
Dungy's words come as an introduction to his short video clip on the All Pro Dad website in which he says, "Tim Tebow, I know, is really disappointed that he hasn't got it going and on a team, in a direction, knowing what locker room he is going to be in right now, but the advice I'd have for Tim is just to be patient, be faithful, the Lord has a good spot for you, He's going to give you the right situation. more >>
A Christian legal group described the Boy Scouts of America Executive Committee's decision on Thursday to change its longstanding membership policy and allow Scouts to be of any "sexual orientation or preference" as a rejection of its freedom to promote values that the group has held for the last century.
"Sadly, the Boy Scouts Executive National Council's decision disregards not only the nearly 19,000 Americans who signed a petition urging BSA to 'uphold the values that have defined the organization for over 100 years,' but also the millions of Americans who have supported the program," stated Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel David Cortman shortly after the decision.
"Those promoting the agenda to change what the Boy Scouts have always been won't rest until there is complete acceptance of any sexual preference for both leaders and members. With its decision today, BSA has rejected its freedom to promote and practice the values that have served to shape our nation's boys into leaders for the last century," Cortman said. more >>
Less than 24 hours after celebrating the wedding of their young adult leader, Jordan Costa, 21, members of a Canton, Mich., church were floored with heartache after they got news that he was killed in a car crash en route to a honeymoon with his new 21-year-old bride, Heather Favazza-Costa.
In an earlier report, David Stephens, associate pastor of Connection Church, where the couple got married last Saturday, said they were on their way to Myrtle Beach, S.C., when the deadly crash took place. Favazza-Costa was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.
Before the accident, according to Stephens, the couple had exchanged heartfelt vows in chapel packed with family and friends. more >>
