Nurses Don’t Want To Be Abortionists

A September policy change at a New Jersey hospital that requires same-day surgery nurses to participate in surgical abortions has resulted in threats to the jobs of nurses who have protested on grounds of religious belief. In October, the hospital began training sessions that require assistance in surgical abortion for its nursing staff.

Faith In The President

A spotlight has been thrown on the former Governor of Massachusetts and front-running GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. You probably have heard that Romney is a Mormon. It was much publicized earlier this month when Pastor Robert Jeffress called Mormonism a “cult” at a political gathering.

Busted For Being Christian

America is the land of the free, a country founded on religious freedom and the 1st Amendment. Unfortunately, freedom of religion no longer applies. In California, holding “a regular gathering of more than three people” is a crime in San Juan Capistrano, especially if that regular meeting involves studying the Bible.

Earthquakes, Hurricane Irene And Evolution

If you like excitement, it doesn’t get any better than this past week in Washington, D.C. — an earthquake and a hurricane in the space of five days. We already had our hands full with a manmade disaster known as the Federal government.

Is Evolution A Crazy Idea?

While making a point about how stupid Americans are, Bill Maher once mockingly said, “Sixty percent of people don’t believe in evolution in this country.” Perhaps Maher should consider supporting Jon Huntsman, who recently tweeted: “To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.”

Study: Education Has Positive Impact On Religious Participation

Conventional wisdom holds that the more education one has, the more likely he is to question his faith or stop attending church. However, a recent University of Nebraska-Lincoln study, soon to be reported in Review of Religious Research, found that higher education may actually have a positive impact on one’s faith.

Census Bureau: Marriages Lasting Longer

According to a report released by the U.S. Census Bureau, more married Americans are staying together for longer amounts of time. An article on WashingtonPost.com read: “Three in four couples who married after 1990 celebrated a 10-year anniversary, according to census statistics reported Wednesday. That was a rise of 3 percentage points compared with couples who married in the early 1980s, when the nation’s divorce rate was at its highest.”

Hypocrisy On The Left: “Progressive” Christian Site Rejects LGBT Ad

A coalition of “progressive” Christians is apparently unfamiliar with the Left’s stance on homosexuality. Sojourners, a Christian group that supports liberal political goals and claims to celebrate diversity, recently rejected an ad that asks Protestant leaders to welcome lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgendered (LGBT) people into the church.

Controversy Surrounds Anti-Gay App

Gay activists have called on Apple to remove an iPhone application that offers “a cure” for homosexuality. 

Supreme Court Likely To Define 1st Amendment Rights Of Churches

The Supreme Court is expected to soon deliver its opinion on a 1st Amendment issue involving an Oregon-based pastor who sued his former employer, a church, for defamation of character.
