A recent article in The Christian Post, Christian Planned Parenthood Executive Challenges Misconceptions About Nation's Leading Abortion Provider, interviewed the new Chair of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Alexis McGill Johnson, where she regurgitated a statistics-free litany of talking points. It was as though I was reading a press release directly from Planned Parenthood.
Far from being "vilified" by prolife advocates, as the article indicates, Planned Parenthood has merely been exposed by historical, statistical and visual evidence that irrefutably reveals who and what Planned Parenthood truly is.
No seeming amount of beneficence, such as breast cancer screenings, STD treatments and (alleged) general health care, makes up for the nearly 1,000 killings that happen in Planned Parenthood centers every day. An organization steeped in eugenic racism and elitism has no defense for the violence it commits against the defenseless. If claiming to be Christian is worthy of giving journalistic space on The Christian Post, wouldn't the same apply to the KKK? It claims to be Christian, too. more >>
An atheist group is combatting a Christian Easter display at Wisconsin's Capitol building in Madison by setting up a sign that reads "Nobody died for our 'sins,' Jesus Christ is a myth."
The Freedom From Religion Foundation says it rushed to get a permit for their display after seeing that the Concerned Women for America group was able to set up their own display at Wisconsin's Capitol building. The CWA group's display reportedly included a Christian cross and pro-life literature. The conservative women's group says on its website that it's dedicated to bringing "biblical principles into all levels of public policy."
The American Center for Law and Justice has successfully aided students from a New York-area high school in expressing their religious freedom through an after-school Bible study.
Concerned parents contacted the legal group after learning that the superintendent of an unnamed high school in Amsterdam, N.Y., had told a senior female student that she could not hold her student-led, after-school Bible study club without first purchasing an insurance policy to use the campus after school hours.
The superintendent made his request of the Bible study club even though other student-led clubs were not required to obtain an insurance policy. After being contacted by concerned parents and students, the ACLJ reportedly provided parents information about "relevant legal principals regarding religious clubs' access to school facilities," coming to the conclusion "that the Bible club must be given the same privileges as any other student-led club." more >>
Thomas Nelson Community College along with its umbrella organization, the Virginia Community College System, has agreed to suspend its policy on "free speech zones" in response to a lawsuit brought by a student who wants to preach on campus.
Last month, Christian Parks brought a lawsuit before the Eastern District of Virginia Newport News Division, alleging that TNCC violated his freedom of speech when campus officials stopped him from preaching in an on-campus plaza area.
According to the lawsuit, Parks was prohibited from preaching due to the college's policy, which states that students can only stage demonstrations if they belong to a student group and get permission four days in advance. more >>
A display of the Ten Commandments on private property may be in violation of the Highway Beautification Transportation Code of the Lone Star State.
In Sabine County, Texas, a pastor who placed a Ten Commandments sign on her property near a highway might have to remove the display or pay for a permit to maintain its present location.
Jeanette Golden, pastor at Word of Truth Family Church in Hemphill, was told by the Texas Department of Transportation that she would have to pay for a permit for the sign. more >>
A CBS affiliate in Sacramento, Calif., has issued an apology to a pro-life organization after falsely portraying the group in a nightly news story.
The CBS station ran a follow up story last week to clarify a previous segment it broascast in March that purportedly showed a pro-life Project Truth volunteer placing a graphic anti-abortion pamphlet on a car parked outside resident's home. It turned out the man featured in the segment was a neighbor, not a member of the pro-life group.
The clarification came in response to a letter sent to the news station from the Life Legal Defense Foundation, a California-based pro-life law firm. more >>
