ARLINGTON, Va. – A legal expert and head of a conservative law firm has stated that government actions against religious groups over same-sex marriage and abortion are "red lines of liberty" being crossed.
Mat Staver, founder and chairman of the Liberty Counsel, told The Christian Post while part of an event in the Washington, D.C.-area on Monday that these red lines involve coercion on the part of government.
"These red lines of liberty are coming very rapidly. They're not just issues that are contrary to Christian values that you can coexist with," said Staver. "These are issues where the government is seeking to force you to affirm ideas and values that are completely contrary to your Christian faith." more >>

Anthony Khoury, 21, filmed the tornado that destroyed sections of Washington, Ill., through a window in his family's home, according to CNN. In the video he can be heard saying the Lord's Prayer followed by a Hail Mary.

Vinicio Riva, the disfigured man being hugged by Pope Francis in the recently-viral photo, has spoken about his experience with the Pontiff, saying when the Catholic leader hugged him he felt "only love."
"I tried to speak, to tell him something, but I couldn't: The emotion was too strong. It all lasted not more than a minute, but it seemed an eternity," Riva, who lives in the Vicenza region of Northern Italy, told the Italian magazine Panorama in a recent interview.
"But what most astonished me is that he didn't think twice on embracing me," Riva continued. "I'm not contagious, but he didn't know. He just did it; he caressed all my face, and while he was doing that, I felt only love." more >>
Parents have named their newborn baby "Miracles" after she came back to life 10 hours after being declared medically dead and being sent to the morgue in the Colombian state of Choco last week.
The child was born prematurely in the early hours of Wednesday, Nov. 13 to mother Jenny Hurtado, who was only 27 weeks pregnant with the baby when she was rushed to a hospital in Quidbo, Choco and given an emergency C-section to deliver the infant. Just 35 minutes later, without finding any signs of life, doctors declared the infant dead.
The premature baby was then taken to the local morgue where she was stored in a small box until her father, a fisherman coming home from sea, could come pick her up and begin making funeral preparations. When the father arrived at the morgue 10 hours later to retrieve the infant's body, he and morgue staff members noticed signs of life, including movement and muffled cries from within the box. more >>
Narcissism has become America's greatest weakness, and a return to Christian humility may be the most effective way to save our democratic republic from the authoritarian demise of Ancient Rome, a citizenship scholar says.
"America is perched in a place right now, because of the moral and political decisions we have made – we are jeopardizing – have not yet abandoned, but are jeopardizing – self-government," David J. Bobb, author of Humility: An Unlikely Biography of America's Greatest Virtue, told The Christian Post in a Monday interview. Bobb decried a culture of arrogance, citing Justin Bieber's audacity to inject himself into the story of Anne Frank, and presented humility as "a very good tonic, a very good bulwark," to protect freedom. more >>
