Houston Mayor Annise Parker's original demand that five Houston pastors turn over their sermons and communications under the threat of fines and/or incarceration created a First Amendment firestorm.

Today in Khartoum, Sudan, Meriam is being held in a fetid, filthy prison for refusing to recant her faith in Christ. Someone purporting to be from her family turned her into the Sudanese authorities on an allegation of "adultery" for marrying outside of Islam
Women are used to Planned Parenthood preying on them -- but praying on them? That's a new approach altogether.
