WASHINGTON, DC - House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today hosted a bipartisan meeting with Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng.  Boehner made these ...

On Friday of last week, the infamous 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco - the nation's most leftist and ineffective appeals court - continued its anti-Christian jihad as it refused to rehear the case of the Mount Soledad War Memorial Cross being removed by various liberal state and federal judges.  This beautiful 29-foot cross sits on public land on a mountain overlooking the Pacific Ocean which has been seen by count...

A would-be father in New Mexico is on a legal course to define whether or not men have an right to free speech when it concerns the activity of the women who carry their unborn children.  Specifically, if a woman chooses to have an abortion, can they speak out against it publicly?  What happens when the free speech rights enshrined in our First Amendment comes into conflict with the manufactured "right to privacy" which legalized abortion?

35 year old Greg Fultz of Alamogordo, New Mexico has paid to put up a billboard stating, "This Would H...

As hard as it is to imagine, a mother of a sixteen year old girl has found out that her daughter's school counsellor arranged for her to have an abortion without the parent's knowledge.

The mother, a Christ Church New Zealand resident, only found out about the abortion four days after the fact.

After suspecting that something was wrong with her daughter, she confronted her friends who admitted that the school's counsellor had arranged for the abortion.

From t...

Do pro-life conservatives deserve the freedoms of our Constitution?  At least one liberal Democrat Senator says they don't.

At a recent Planned Parenthood rally to keep its hands in taxpayer's pocketbooks, New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg said that "Planned Parenthood is under attack by Tea Party Republicans who have put their extremist ideology above women's health".  He then went a step further and, referring to pro-life counter-protestors, stated: "These people don't deserve the freedoms in the Constitution!"

New Jersey pro-life activist Marie Tasy suggested th...

The more the bureaucracy moves to enact the Obama administration's notion of health care "reform", the worse it gets.  In this case, it's their move to eliminate the conscience protection rights concerning abortion that were provided for by the Bush administration.

Those protections were put in place on behalf of those in the medical community who did not want to be forced to participate in performing abortions.  The 2008 rule by the Bush administration was put in place to prohibit recipients of any federal funding from discriminating against those who had such moral object...

Once you start down the path of redefining marriage to include anything other than the exclusive union of a man and a woman, it's not long before those who firmly disagree with that redefinition begin to see their values come under assault.  And that is just what has happened in Illinois.

Christian bed and breakfast owners are being sued by homosexuals for not allowing the use of their facilities for a gay "civil union" ceremony.  And since (as of this June) the state of Illinois legally allows such unions, the complaint is over discrimination, and the Illinois Attorney Gen...

A judge in Great Britain has ruled that a Christian couple can no longer serve as foster parents due to their religious views that homosexuality is wrong.

Yes, really.  It's come to this.

The couple, Owen and Eunice Johns have been foster parents to over twenty children, but were banned from the program by social workers in 2007 as a result of interviews associated with the program where they expressed their opposition to homosexuality because of their faith.  Now a British court has...

At least a gilded wood statue of him is gone. This fellow had a difficult reign and following his death things have not gone well. He was made ruler of Egypt at the age of 9. Being the product of an incestuous union he had poor health all his life. His mother was the sister of his father. These Royal rulers!!

Tut had a club foot and necrosis (tissue death) which destroyed bones in part of his foot. Scientists think he had a cleft palate. His immune system was weak which allowed for many infectuous diseases. He died of malaria. He was the last of his dynasty.

Egypt's Cleopatra might be smiling at Mubarak's troubles as she remembered her own while ruling that ancient country.  She was still a teenager when ascending the throne.

To rule she needed to marry her brother - and she did.  He was able to dethrone her.

When Julius Caesar, the ruler of Rome, visited Egypt, Cleopatra introduced herself by being rolled from a carpet at his feet. Impressed by her audacity and charmed by her beauty, she won his affection.

Caesar drove her brother Ptolemy from power and re-installed Cleopatra as head of state.  She bore Cae...
