An atheist organization has asked Ohio Governor John Kasich to meet with the atheist community after recently calling Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe "weird" for not believing in God.
Following a New Hampshire event in which Kasich officially endorsed Republican Chris Sununu, the former presidential hopeful went to a bookstore and noticed the latest Harry Potter book on the shelves.

It's that time again in American politics when we are subjected to the four year ritual of electing our next President.
Like the locusts emerging from their hibernation, the world is suddenly full of this deafening noise of a political war of words. And like the locusts' cacophony, we only have to endure it for a few short months. Then it dies down, and both the locusts and our politicians seem to go to sleep again until it's time to come out of their holes and governmental offices to assault us once again with their dissonance.
Ok. Maybe I'm being too harsh. On the locusts, that is. more >>
Chile's Senate Health Commission voted in favor of legalizing abortion on Tuesday, moving one step closer to lifting the total ban on the practice, despite opposition from a majority of citizens including 100,000 Christians who marched in a pro-life rally ahead of the vote.
Latin American network teleSUR reported that three out of five senators voted to approve a bill that decriminalizes abortion in the cases of rape, when the mother's life is at risk during a medical emergency, or if the baby is said to have "serious defects."
The bill, which seeks to lift the ban on abortion implemented by the regime of Augusto Pinochet in 1989, has been backed by President Michelle Bachelet and the Christian Democratic Party, which is part of the ruling coalition, despite protests from Christians. more >>

The Democrats are now playing the Russia card. As Donald Trump rises in the polls against an increasingly unpopular Hillary Clinton, Democrats are raising the specter of the nefarious Vladimir Putin. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's famous reset of relations was a bust, but we are supposed to trust her to handle Putin in the future. More important, the Democrats are sowing grounds to challenge the election, relying on their unnatural ability to squeeze, as if by magic, extra votes from the courtroom.
There may be an even more insidious objective, however, than swaying the 2016 result. Outgoing Nevada Sen. Harry Reid, never a fan of election fair play, warned of Russian tampering and called for an FBI investigation. This followed warnings by Jeh Johnson, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, of potential cyber-attacks come November. He indicated he was considering designating the election system "critical infrastructure."
This would be followed by a Washington campaign to "assist" and "protect" balloting, which inevitably would turn into control. The Heritage Foundation's Hans von Spakovsky warned that Johnson's action "may be a way for the administration to get Justice Department lawyers, the FBI, and DHS staff into polling places they would otherwise have no legal right to access, which would enable them to interfere with election administration procedures around the country." That would dramatically, and permanently, transform the constitutional balance between the national and state governments. more >>
