Prominent conservative author and essayist Mary Eberstadt has released a new book that aims to show liberals of "reason" just how intolerant and incivil today's secularist political Left has become toward traditional religious beliefs on marriage, sex and abortion.
Eberstadt, the author of a number of books who has also been published in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine, National Review, First Things and other news outlets, released her new book, It's Dangerous to Believe: Religious Freedom and Its Enemies, last week and spoke in Washington on Tuesday to discuss the main takeaways from her work.
"Today, as opposed to 40 years ago, [social issues] are no longer contested. They are regarded as settled. The progressive secularists side has chalked up victory after victory on cases involving school prayer, obscenity, abortion and same-sex marriage," Eberstadt told attendees at a lunchtime discussion at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday. more >>
The Rev. Bill Owens, the president of the Coalition of African American Pastors, spoke at the March for Marriage rally in Washington, D.C., blasting President Barack Obama for "deceiving America" by carefully timing his advocacy for same-sex marriage.
"When President Obama was running for president, I had some friends in the gay community who informed me that he was going to say that he was for marriage between a man and a woman in his first term to get elected but he would take the issue up in his second term, and that's what he did," Owens said at the rally, according to CNS News.
"He deceived America," the pastor said in his speech Saturday. "And you must fear no man. I fear no man. I got a lot of criticism, a lot of hate mail for opposing Obama." more >>

A Colorado couple and three of their four daughters, all 6 years old and younger, died after their family vehicle was struck by an Amtrak train while on their way to church Sunday. Their second oldest daughter, who is 4, was the lone survivor.
"We were at church and when they didn't show up for church, we were worried about what was going on," Keith Schlabach, a cousin of Christina Miller, 32, the mother who perished with her daughters, told The Denver Post Monday morning. "We thought they were broken down or something. One of the other guys was driving back from church toward Steve's house to see what happened, and then he got to the tracks."
Colorado State Patrol identified the family on Monday. Christina's husband, Stephen, 32, was behind the wheel of the family's 2005 Chrysler Town & Country minivan while his wife was in the passenger seat. A GoFundMe page seeking to fund the family members' funeral identified the deceased children as Abigail, 6, Kathryn, 2, and Ellianna who is just 8 months old. Heidi, 4, who was seriously hurt, was reported to be in stable condition Monday. more >>
