Is the writing on the wall for religious freedom in this country? Just ask two Arizona calligraphers.
Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski met at a Starbucks café in north Phoenix in January 2015. Both were Christians, and both were artists. They decided to go into business together, combining their love for Jesus with their love for making beautiful things.

While atheist groups have argued that International Blasphemy Rights Day on Friday speaks out against oppressive regimes that attack religious freedom, Catholic League President Bill Donohue has accused the event of being an anti-religious "farce."
"Upon closer examination, it is clear that those who sponsor this event are not friends of liberty: they are rabidly opposed to religion, harboring a special hatred of Catholicism. In short, the whole project is a farce," Donohue argued in an op-ed for CNSNews.
He said the Center for Inquiry, the secular group behind the event, attempts to present it as a respectable idea, but he said it is anything but. more >>
