Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has recently endorsed a plan to pass a federal amendment allowing states to ban gay marriage should the U.S. Supreme Court rule against such laws.
In a recent interview with ABC's "This Week' host George Stephanopoulos, the possible Republican presidential candidate explained his views on the marriage definition debate.
The Pro-Life Acton League has sent over 500 plastic handcuffs inside "care packages" that are being delivered to abortion clinics throughout the U.S. this week and include a picture postcard showing the recent arrest of an Oklahoma abortionist with a handwritten message asking: "Could you be next?"
The packages were sent to the nation's abortionists on the 42nd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in all 50 states. The postcards containing the handwritten note from Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League, encourage abortion clinic employees to leave the billion dollar business that he says is killing millions of babies every year.
Featuring the image of Oklahoma abortionist Naresh Patel who was arrested near Oklahoma City on Dec. 9, 2014, for fraud after he sold abortion-inducing drugs to women who weren't pregnant, the postcard reads: "Could you be next? If you want to get out of the abortion business, give me a call," and includes Scheidler's cell phone number. more >>
New Jersey's Superior Court will soon hear arguments regarding two motions in a lawsuit leveled against a Jewish group that offers therapy to change a person's sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual.
Two motions were filed on behalf of JONAH International in its legal battle against the Montgomery, Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center, which is known for labeling faith-based organizatons as "hate groups" due to their opposition to homosexuality and pro-gay agendas.
The SPLC also filed parallel motions against JONAH on behalf of its clients, which Arthur Goldberg, co-director of JONAH, described as "misguided motions [that] are based on the false assumption that homosexuality is a 'normal variant of human sexuality' and that sexual orientation cannot 'change.'" more >>
A Church of England priest briefly disrupted the consecration ceremony for the first ever female bishop in the church after he shouted "not in the Bible." The ceremony went on as planned, however, and the Rev. Libby Lane was ordained as the Bishop of Stockport in front of over 1,000 people.
"It is a remarkable thing that this happens to me, and people have been very supportive of me personally, but actually this is about a moment in the Church's history," Lane said, reflecting on the occasion.
BBC News reported that the priest who spoke out was the Rev. Paul Williamson from Hanworth, West London. Williamson made his views heard after the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, asked during the ceremony whether Lane should be ordained as bishop. more >>
This is the part 2 of an investigative series into reparative/conversion therapy and same-sex attraction.
Christian minister and self-described former homosexual McKrae Game has developed an organization called Hope for Wholeness, which allows people dealing with same-sex attraction to come together and worship God, with the ultimate goal of bringing them closer to Christ.
Game previously told The Christian Post how he left the homosexual lifestyle by developing a closer relationship with God. Now, he wants to share his own story to help others struggling with homosexuality by allowing them to hear who God wants them to be. more >>
Boston Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley has said that American women have shown they are more pro-life than men, who sometimes attempt to force them into having abortions. O'Malley vowed that the Catholic Church will continue its fight against abortion, and predicted that it "shall overcome" in the cultural battle.
"The church cannot and must not remain on the sidelines in the fight for a better world," O'Malley said at the opening mass of the National Prayer Vigil for Life, Catholic News Service reported.
"In our country, people have come together in the fight to overcome racism" and other social ills, he added. more >>
