‘Christianity is Abhorrent’: More Atheistic Materials to be Distributed in Public Schools

A federal judge has given a secular organization the green light to distribute more atheistic and anti-Christian materials to Florida public school students, in spite of the materials’ graphic content and offensive language. As previously reported, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) learned last year that a Christian ministry had made Bibles available to Orlando high school students on “Religious Freedom Day.” To counter the Bible distribution, FFRF sought permission from the school district to give students a variety of atheistic and anti-Christian materials.

Inside Mars Hill’s massive meltdown

A recent outpouring of accounts by former church members of Mars Hill, Seattle’s own homegrown megachurch, are painting a picture, both fascinating and horrifying, of outrageous and psychologically damaging behavior that’s been happening inside the church for many years. There are emerging stories of sensational kangaroo courts and “sex demon” trials, like something out of the Salem witch hunts of the 1600s. Even more devastating to individual members are the ways in which they are shamed, taught to blame themselves and each other when they see problems, and to formally shun people who step out of favor with church leaders. Shunnings, both formal and informal, have caused the outcast to spend years in isolation, cut off from friends, sometimes suffering deep clinical depression, nightmares, disillusionment and shattered faith.

The Disaster Of The Obama Presidency

The Obama presidency lies in shambles. Few presidents have promised more, delivered less, or done more damage. The economy limps along anemically — the weakest recovery from a recession in history. Rising taxes, suffocating regulation, soaring domestic  spending, and voraciously expanding entitlements have deep-chilled growth, innovation, and the creation of new jobs. The administration has tenaciously impeded the exploitation of huge energy reserves that could transform the U.S. into an energy exporter. The president reneged on his promise that Americans could keep their health care. Instead, the administration will force millions of Americans to buy coverage, so the president can finance a fiscally unsound, medically unwise, and administratively untenable. monstrosity. In the first quarter of 2014, the economy declined by 2.9 percent. Another recession looms near.

White House faces broad resistance on border bill

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is meeting growing resistance from both the left and the right as it pushes a multibillion-dollar emergency spending bill for the border, raising questions about chances for any action in Congress to address the crisis of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children crossing into South Texas. Democratic opposition is hardening to changing a 2008 anti-trafficking law to allow Central American children to be sent home more quickly, even as Republicans demand such changes as their price for supporting any part of President Barack Obama’s $3.7 billion spending request.

Senate Defeats Democrats’ Bill to “Overturn” Supreme Court Decision Protecting Hobby Lobby

Senate Democrats today lost their bid to approve legislation to “overturn” the Supreme Court’s decision protecting Hobby Lobby and other companies from being forced to comply with the HHS mandate that compels them to pay for abortion-causing drugs for their employees. Republicans were able to sustain their filibuster against the bill and prevailed on a 56-43 vote, with Democrats voting to move to a vote on the pro-abortion bill and almost all Republicans uniting to vote against it. The Supreme Court ruled that the Christian-run Hobby Lobby doesn’t have to obey the HHS mandate that is a part of Obamacare. The high court issued a favorable ruling in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a landmark case addressing the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of business owners to operate their family companies without violating their deeply held religious convictions.

Dutch Professor Now Opposes Euthanasia, “I Was Wrong, Terribly Wrong”

The Daily Mail UK is reporting that a former euthanasia supporter, Professor Theo Boer, has told the House of Lords in the UK not to make the same mistake as the Netherlands. Next week, the British House of Lords will debate the Falconer assisted suicide bill. Lord Falconer is a long-time supporter of assisted suicide who is also known for writing a one-sided report calling for the legalization of assisted death in Britain. The Daily Mail reported Dr Boer to have told the House of Lords: ‘Don’t do it Britain,’ ‘Once the genie is out of the bottle, it is not likely ever to go back in again.’ According to the Daily Mail report, Dr Boer, who is an academic in the field of ethics, had argued seven years ago that a ‘good euthanasia law’ would produce relatively low numbers of deaths. But, speaking in a personal capacity he said that he now believed that the very existence of a euthanasia law turns assisted suicide from a last resort into a normal procedure.

Poll: Americans Don’t Like Obama’s Border Policy

Swing voters, mid-income voters, Hispanic voters and pretty much every other demographic group are opposed to President Barack Obama’s handling of the border crisis, according to a new Washington Post poll. His response to the wave of Central American migrants who are now crossing the Texas border is disapproved by 59 percent of registered voters, and is approved by only 34 percent of voters. Worse for Obama, it is disapproved strongly by 42 percent of registered voters, and strongly approved by only 13 percent of registered voters, said the poll. That’s a big problem for Obama, who hasn’t stopped the growing wave of Central American migrants on the Texas border, and hasn’t mollified angry demands from Latino lobbies for even more reductions in enforcement of immigration law.

Pro-Life Leader Challenges Democrats: If You’re So Pro-Choice, Allow a Vote to Ban Late-Term Abortions

During a hearing today on a bill sponsored by Senate Democrats to push a bill that wipes out virtually every pro-life law across the country, a pro-life leader challenged them to make good on their “pro-choice” claims. During the hearing, Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee, told lawmakers that if they really want a vote on this radical legislation, they should agree to a vote on a bill the House passed that would ban abortions after 20 weeks. The House of Representatives has twice approved a bill that bans abortions from after 20-weeks of pregnancy up to the day of birth. But Democratic Leader Harry Reid refuses to allow a vote in the Senate.
