Popular '90s actress Melissa Joan Hart who stars in the upcoming Christian film "God's Not Dead 2" that hits theaters on Easter weekend says she'll continue speaking about her faith because she has every right to do so.
"You know, it can be a little scary sometimes to say anything. These days, it's a talent to be politically correct," she told Fox 411 in an interview published Wednesday. "I find that as long as I don't care what other people think and I stand by my values, it doesn't matter what other people say."
"People are going to argue with me no matter if I say something controversial or not," she continued. "I'm going to ignore them because I have every right to say what I want to say and put out there what I feel. I don't judge others and I'm definitely not trying to hurt anyone's feelings." more >>

WASHINGTON — Thousands of Romanian Pentecostal Evangelicals peacefully protested Norwegian embassies in five national capitals, including Washington D.C. on Friday, calling on the Norwegian government to free five children who were removed from their parents by child services last year after a teacher complained about the family's Christian faith.
The three sons and two daughters of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu were taken into custody by the Barnevernet (Norway's child services) on Nov. 16, 2015, after their daughter's teacher cited concern about the family's belief that "God punishes sin."
Despite not having been tried in a court of law, the children have been placed in three separate foster homes and the parents have been granted limited visitation rights. The family also claims that the agency has initiated the adoption process for the children on the grounds that they were physically abused. more >>

The tenured Wheaton College professor who is currently suspended for asserting that Christians and Muslims worship the same God published on Wednesday the theological statement she submitted to the institution last month explaining the basis of her argument.
After political science professor Larycia Hawkins was placed on administrative leave in December for asserting that "we worship the same god" in a Facebook post explaining that she was wearing a hijab through the Advent to show solidarity with Muslims, the school claimed her comments violated its statement of faith and asked Hawkins to submit a theological statement about her "same god" argument before she could be reinstated.
On Dec. 17, 2015, Hawkins submitted the requested statement to Wheaton Provost Stanton Jones. Despite submitting the four-page statement, administrators felt that "further theological clarification" was necessary before the two sides could move forward with the reconciliation process. more >>
