Chaplain for the 108 American Legion in New Mexico, Richard Frazier complained about the "Christian propaganda" and prayers to Jesus he was forced to put up with at a Wild West horse show he paid to attend in Alamogordo, N.M., two weeks ago.
"We went to see what was advertised as a horse show, but [it] turned into a proselytizing Christian religious event," Frazier complained in an Alamogordo Daily News report.
"Why wasn't the show billed as a Christian event?" Frazier asked. He said the show should have been properly advertised to inform citizens of the dogma to which they would be exposed. more >>
Miley, please "Stop."
Millions of viewers tuned in to MTV's 30th Annual Video Music Awards this past Sunday, hoping to witness a long-awaited N'SYNC reunion, among many other memorable pop-culture moments. While what they witnessed was definitely memorable, it was a disheartening reminder of what our culture expects of successful women -- sexually objectify yourself and you'll get the attention you need to make more money.
While this is hardly new "news" to anyone, Miley Cyrus' salacious, hyper-sexualized performance Sunday night to "We Can't Stop" shows just how bad it's gotten. more >>
The other shoe has officially dropped.
Many warned of the adverse effects same-sex "marriage" could have on religious liberty. As exemplified by a ruling rendered by the New Mexico Supreme Court last Thursday, these fears are being realized.
The highest court in the Land of Enchantment ruled that a Christian photographer violated the state's Human Rights Act when she declined to take photos of a lesbian "commitment" ceremony. more >>
An attempt was recently made to vandalize a war memorial at an Oregon park at the center of a church and state controversy with an improvised explosive device.
An unknown individual detonated the IED near the memorial, located at Mingus Park in the City of Coos Bay, sometime late night between last Thursday and last Friday.
Rodger Craddock, city manager for Coos Bay, told The Christian Post that police are still trying to apprehend the vandal. more >>
A federal judge has entered a final order permitting the display of pro-life signs at a Michigan Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.
U.S. District Judge Gershwin A. Drain of the Eastern District of Michigan issued his order last week on behalf of Paul Dobrowolski in his suit against the city of Ann Arbor.
In the order, Ann Arbor agreed to pay Dobrowolski $50 in compensation for the fine he received for his display plus $7,000 in legal fees. more >>
The Supreme Court of New Mexico ruled Aug. 22 that the First Amendment does not protect a Christian photographer's ability to decline to take pictures of a same-sex commitment ceremony -- even when doing so would violate the photographer's deeply held religious beliefs. As Elaine Huguenin, owner of Elane Photography, explained: "The message a same-sex commitment ceremony communicates is not one I believe."
But New Mexico's highest court, deciding an appeal of the case, agreed with the New Mexico Human Rights Commission and ruled against Elane Photography, concluding that neither protections of free speech nor free exercise of religion apply.
Elaine and her husband Jon, both committed Christians, run their small photography business in Albuquerque, N.M. In 2006, she declined the request to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony. In 2008, the New Mexico Human Rights Commission ruled that by declining to use its artistic and expressive skills to communicate what was said and what occurred at the ceremony, the business had engaged in illegal discrimination based on sexual orientation. more >>
