A district court in Michigan dismissed a lawsuit against one of the largest Catholic hospital organizations in the country that would have forced them to perform abortions.
United States District Court Judge Gershwin A. Drain of the Eastern District of Michigan granted Trinity Health Corporation's motion to dismiss a lawsuit leveled by the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.
In his 13-page Monday decision, Judge Drain argued that the ACLU and the plaintiffs it represented lacked the standing to sue Trinity Health over its policy of not performing emergency abortions. more >>
Civil debates over climate change can lead to greater understanding and will strengthen our policy prescriptions. Therefore, we the editors of The Christian Post pledge to continue offering our news site as a forum where all sides in this debate can advocate for their position.
We recognize that Christians take various positions on these issues.
Some Christians want carbon controls because of their admirable care for the world's poor, arguing that a rise in sea level and angry storms will wreak havoc among the most vulnerable. more >>
Christians can and must make a difference in the culture. But we never impose, we only propose. Here's a point or two of clarification.
"When you talk about Christians restoring the culture," I'm sometimes asked, "do you mean that we should take over the laws and run society? Because, you know, that's been tried before, and it didn't go so well."
I can understand the confusion. One source of the confusion is that there are some Christians who do propose something like this. Some of them are following the theological ideas of R. J.

They seem to imply a sort of Christian takeover of the key segments of culture. more >>
While it's true that liberalism is destroying America, it is also true that most liberals are not doing it intentionally. Instead, they do what they do out of fear.
Liberals are the casualties of social conditioning which inspires them to fear just about everything. That's why they fear free speech, warm winters, competition, healthy debate, individualism, the Bible, guns, big sodas, freedom, capitalism, the U.S. Constitution, salt, manly men, a strong military, and so on.
These irrational fears drive liberals to attempt to control their environment by creating safe spaces and collective utopias which always fail. more >>
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson thinks Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump could become more gracious if he starts reading the Bible more and taking its wisdom to heart.
Carson, a former Republican presidential candidate, is now backing Trump.
In a recent interview with WABC's Rita Cosby, Carson explained that the brash, counterpunching Trump now recognizes the need to tailor his tone to ensure he goes the distance in the Republican presidential race and believes the Bible and prayer could help him. more >>
One of the too-few happy days in the twentieth century was November 9, 1989, the day the Berlin Wall came down.
For twenty-eight years the Berlin Wall had kept the people of Communist-controlled East Germany locked in. Without the Wall and without the tightly closed borders elsewhere, the people would have simply left the Communist states in larger and larger numbers and walked into the western democracies.
Freedom was incomparably preferred to state control. more >>
