New York Times best-selling author, comedian and self-professed Christian Steve Harvey says he can't "wrap his mind around" Bruce Jenner's recent interview with Diane Sawyer where he told the world that he identifies as a woman.
During a Sunday interview with "Hip Hollywood," Harvey shared his thoughts on the Jenner's announcement.
"Everybody says it's the bravest thing they've ever seen, so that's the politically correct thing to say," Harvey asserted. "I can't wrap my mind around it all. Zero. I have no concept of what that means. Nothing negative. He has every right to live his life the way he want to, but I can't come in the house and make that announcement to my wife, to my children. Nothing." more >>
The annual report of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom shows that 12 of the 17 nations with the worst record of religious freedom are Islamic or Muslim-majority countries.
USCIRF, an independent federal government advisory body, has recommended that the State Department add eight more nations and retain nine existing nations to its list of "countries of particular concern," or CPCs, where particularly severe violations of religious freedom are perpetrated or tolerated.
Of the eight new additions to the CPC list, seven are Islamic or Muslim-majority nations: Central African Republic, Egypt, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, Syria and Tajikistan. The other nation is Vietnam. more >>
The U.S. Supreme Court has thrown out a ruling against a Catholic organization that was being compelled to provide insurance coverage for contraceptives at the threat of being fined by the Internal Revenue Service.
On Monday the highest court in the nation granted the Michigan Catholic Conference their request for an exemption for religious reasons against the Health and Human Services contraception mandate.
In the Supreme Court's order, the Justices invoked last year's landmark Hobby Lobby decision, which concluded that "closely-held businesses" could be exempted from the HHS mandate due to religious objections. more >>
The Nigerian army has reported that it rescued 200 girls and 93 women from the Sambia Forest on Tuesday as it continues driving out terror group Boko Haram from its territory. It added, however, that the girls are not the ones from Chibok kidnapped by the jihadists in April 2014.
Nigerian Army spokesman Sani Usman said, according to CNN, that the army has raided a number of Boko Haram's camps in the forest, which has served as a stronghold for the Islamic militants. The region is not far from Chibok, where close to 200 girls were kidnapped last year, sparking a major international campaign calling for their release.
Usman confirmed, however, that the rescued captives are not the schoolgirls taken by Boko Haram in that particular raid. more >>
The redefinition of marriage to include same-sex couples has mostly been a revolution by a few judges. Will five Supreme Court judges continue that trend and reject a deliberative democratic process to define marriage?
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments Tuesday, April 28 on an appeal from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals regarding the constitutionality of four state-level gay marriage bans.
Since June 2013, the number of states that legally recognize same-sex marriage dramatically increased from nine and the District of Columbia to 37 states, with Alabama being the most recent addition. more >>
