Students vouch for Bible course`s benefits

(OneNewsNow) With the support of a number of students, a school district in California is expanding its Bible curriculum in public high schools.

In a 5-0 vote, the Chino Valley Unified School District agreed recently to extend its "Bible as/in Literature and History" course to both juniors and seniors in high school. In another unanimous vote last summer, the district had approved the course for seniors only.
 
Board president James Na, who envisioned the course, says that he was "highly impressed" by students and board members who voiced their support of the Bible course in the community`s classrooms. He is convinced that young people need the Word of God to direct their lives.
 
"And these young people should be not only taught but nurtured to be our future face of this nation, with understanding of our foundation as a Christian nation," he comments.


 
According to Na, around 25 high school students showed up during the board meeting at Woodcrest Junior High School in Ontario to voice their support for the Bible course. The school board president says the board was pleased to hear how the course has enriched the lives of the students as they recommended that it should be made available to other grades as well.
 
"They were also impressed to hear how this class actually had great impact on [the students`] learning, how it related to our American historical heritage," says Na. "They also talked about how it made changes in their lives...that they are valued and they can see the vision of their lives again."
 
Na says he highly recommends that similar Bible classes be adopted in other school districts around the region and in other states as well.
 
Under the Chino District`s plan, students may take the course as an elective, fulfilling the general requirement for admission into California State University and the University of California.

Americans Give U.S. Moral Climate Low Marks

(Christian Post)  More than a third of Americans would grade the country`s moral climate with a D or F, a new survey found.

Evangelicals are more likely to give the current "moral state of the union" the same poor marks with 54 percent grading it a D or F, according to a survey conducted by Public Religion Research Institute in partnership with Religion News Service.

Overall, three out of four Americans give the moral state of the U.S. a grade of a C or below.

New Bill Would Require LGBT Indoctrination for Elementary-Age Students

(Pacific Justice Institute)  A bill recently introduced in the California senate seeks to mandate that all public schools in California teach history and social studies with a deliberate slant toward lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons (LGBT).

The bill, SB 48, was introduced in the new legislative session by longtime LGBT activist Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), who has also authored a number of bills in past sessions designed to attack traditional marriage. Among other things, SB 48 states, "Instruction in social sciences shall include the early history of California and a study of the role and contributions of... lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans, and members of other ethnic and cultural groups, to the economic, political, and social development of California and the United States of America, with particular emphasis on portraying the role of these groups in contemporary society."

Most California schools teach California history in the fourth grade. Current law points students to the contributions of "both men and women, black Americans, American Indians, Mexicans, and Pacific Island people." SB 48 adds LGBT and changes the names of most of the other ethnic groups to sound more politically correct, although it eliminates "Mexicans" entirely, without adding back in any other Latino designation.

Pacific Justice Institute will be officially opposing SB 48. PJI president Brad Dacus commented, "Increasingly, we are seeing bills like SB 48 disguised as anti-bullying measures, when in reality they do not even mention bullying. Instead, SB 48 mandates that history be sexualized for elementary-age children, to please a special interest group. At a time when our students are falling behind their peers from other countries, more political correctness is not the answer."

Nearly 50 Million Abortions Have Been Performed in U.S. Since Roe v. Wade Decision Legalized Abortion

(CNSNews)  Statistics compiled over the past decade show that the number of abortions in the United States has dropped precipitously since the early 1980s, but the procedure still remains a prevalent form of birth control in this country and around the world.

According to the U.S .Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, there were 846,181 abortions in the U.S. in 2006, the latest year for which government records are available.

The pro-abortion rights Alan Guttmacher Institute reports that there have been nearly 50 million abortions performed since 1973, the year the Supreme Court issued the Roe v. Wade decision ushering in legal abortion nationwide.

Child Porn at MTV

(American Spectator)  The child porn allegations made against MTV for its "Skins" show must be investigated by the Obama Justice Department. Child Pornography is not protected by the First Amendment, and producing child porn is a crime. Whether these allegations are true or not, even allegations of it are something most responsible businesses don`t want to be associated with, and they`re chasing advertisers away from this latest attempt to redefine what`s allowed on television.

The latest TV scandal is over MTV`s new show, "Skins." The show casts child actors (not adults who play children on camera) with a plot where kids are involved in drugs, sex and reportedly even prostitution. It`s pushing the envelope in terms of coarsening society, evidently going for the shock value of being one of the edgiest shows on cable television.

But MTV might be in colossal trouble, because "Skins" is being accused of involving child porn. Child pornography laws don`t just cover explicit sex between children. Among other things, they include simulated sexual conduct by minors. If the actors were actually adults who just looked young, then the Supreme Court says child porn laws would not apply. But because the actors are really children, if they`re depicted in sexual acts then MTV has crossed the line.

Obama`s State of the Union Mentions Importance of Family

(Christian Post)  President Obama was called out by a conservative group for not strengthening the traditional family even though he spoke about the importance of parents in a child’s educational success in his second State of the Union address on Tuesday evening.

"The intact married family is the core strength of the United States, and public policy should encourage formation of such families,” said Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council, in response to the address. "Unfortunately, many of the Administration`s policies have undermined strong families by affirming sexual behavior that is unhealthy and destructive to individuals, families, the military, and society.”

Obama spent his 61-minute speech discussing the economy, investment in education and clean energy, revision of the health care reform bill, immigration reform, fight against terrorism, jobs, and freeze on some government spending.

New plan will insert gay themes throughout British curriculum

(LifeSiteNews.com) – The British coalition government, composed of the centre-left Conservatives and the far left Liberal Democrats, has adopted a scheme by homosexualist activists to normalize homosexual activity by seeding it throughout the curriculum in the nation’s schools.  Critics have blasted the plan for distracting from the task of teaching of the core subjects at a time when British students are increasingly falling behind in areas such as reading, writing and math.

Sue Sanders, the head of School’s Out, an affiliate group of the country’s leading homosexualist political lobby, said, “These lessons are not big tub-thumping lessons about LGBT and nothing else.

“All we are attempting to do is remind teachers that LGBT people are part of the population and you can include them in most of your lessons when you are thinking inclusively.”

Sperm Donor Kids Speak Out: Our Biological Dads Matter to Us

(Ruth Insitute)  ” … I don’t want to be on his family’s Christmas cards or to take up an inordinate amount of his time. I just want to know who he is.”

“I feel like half a person.”

“I wish he simply knew I exist.”

If you are a man who gets a woman pregnant after meeting her in a bar, you cannot legally hide your identity from your child, nor walk away from at least minimal responsibility as a father. Yet if you wish anonymously to sell your sperm to a sperm bank, you can remain hidden from your child forever.

No one knows how many persons are conceived each year in the U.S. through anonymous sperm donation. Experts estimate it could be somewhere between 30,000 and 60,000 annually, but the numbers are only a guess because the U.S. government does not require reporting or tracking of such pregnancies. For the fertility industry, anonymity is the grease that keeps the machinery going. It allows men (and women) in exchange for money to conceive offspring they never have to meet or acknowledge. It allows parents who wish to purchase sperm or eggs not to have to tell their child the truth about how the child was conceived. And, it has allowed our society to avoid the uncomfortable fact that we are creating two classes of persons, those who have the legal right to know their origins and those who are legally forbidden to learn the same thing.

Marriott Hotels to Phase Out In-Room TV Porn

(Christian Post)  Marriott International plans to remove X-rated adult entertainment from its in-room pay-per-view entertainment, the hotel giant announced.

The company said it is equipping new hotel rooms with an Internet-based video-on-demand system that do not give access to pornography. It also said the decision was based on data showing that hotel pay-per-view programs that include pornography on its menu are no longer popular among patrons.

“Changing technology and how guests access entertainment has reduced the revenue hotels and their owners derive from in-room movies, including adult content,” stated Marriott to “Hotel Check-In” of USA Today Travel.

Bill Submission Deadline: February 18

(California Family Council)  As of last Friday, just over 300 legislatives bills had been submitted in California’s Assembly and Senate. Four weeks remain before the deadline for submission, but don’t be fooled by the word “deadline.” Many bills now being submitted are simply “spot” or “placeholder” bills; in other words, some bills being submitted are quite vague, and are only holding a “spot” for content that is later added, which is often much more aggressive.

California’s budget is receiving more attention, and Democrat leadership has given a “thumbs up” to Governor Jerry Brown’s plans to take the extended timeline of higher taxes – and tax raises – to a vote of the people. 

Governor Brown is also making plans to push for significant cuts in social programs and to the University of California and California State University systems. Brown verbalizes bi-partisan decision-making, and perhaps to his credit his decisions are receiving bi-partisan derision.

However, pro-life and pro-family voters beware, as Brown shows no willingness to honor your perspectives and opinions. With openly homosexual Assembly Speaker John Florez and anti-Prop 8 Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, legislative bills regarding same-sex marriage, hate crimes and bullying (AB 9), employer “discrimination” (SB 117), pro-homosexual curriculum (SB 48), and enhanced legal protections for Planned Parenthood are already submitted or in the draft stages. 

Please pray for the Legislature and the governor to give their time and attention to long-term, sacrificial solutions to the state’s budget deficit. But be prepared to speak loud and often to your elected representatives, and to enlist the voices of others, in opposition to “progressive” and immoral legislation.

Prayer, student speakers unwelcome

(OneNewsNow)  A Christian legal alliance is prepared to file suit against a West Virginia university that has removed all student speakers from its nursing program`s pinning ceremony. The dispute began when graduating students voted on whether to continue the tradition of prayers at the event. (See earlier story)

"The university is the entity that decided to let the students choose, and then once the students chose overwhelmingly to include prayers in the ceremony, the university decided that...it would not allow that to happen," reports Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) attorney Travis Barham.

So his group has contacted officials at West Virginia University-Parkersburg, strongly urging them to reverse their course of action. Barham represents one student who played a lead role in requesting the prayers to be reinstated and was scheduled to speak at the pinning.

"The university`s actions here are particularly ironic because they are penalizing all three student speakers for the actions of one," the attorney notes.

So he decides that what the school is doing is "both ridiculous and illegal."

"It has been clearly established for decades that the government cannot penalize people for exercising their constitutional right to free speech," Barham points out. "And in this situation, that`s exactly what`s happened."

Meanwhile, ADF is prepared to file suit if need be.

Top pro-abort group knew about violations in ‘house of horrors’ clinic, but did nothing

(LifeSiteNews.com) - Upon entering the building, investigators were hit by the stench of cat urine and the sight of drugged and moaning women lying on blood-stained blankets. Flea-ridden cats defecated freely on the bloodied floors.

The abortion equipment itself was broken, dirty, and rusty; downstairs, the dismembered remains of newborn and nearly-born children were stuffed into jars, bags, milk jugs, and cat food containers. Others shared space in a refrigerator-freezer with employees’ lunches.

This, according to a description by the Philadelphia Inquirer this week, was the scene that met Philadelphia police investigators last February when raiding abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s late-term abortion clinic – dubbed the “House of Horrors.” Upon returning, the investigators wore hazmat suits.

U.K. kids put on `hate crimes` list for schoolyard taunts

More than 10,000 of those children are in elementary school, and the figures even include nursery school students down to toddler age.

Schools were required by the United Kingdom`s Labour government in 2002 to monitor and report all racist incidents to the local education authorities, or LEAs, following the U.K.`s Race Relations Act of 2000.

Marchers want Congress to protect nation`s unborn

Nevertheless, numerous leaders, including celebrities and a former Planned Parenthood director, join March for Life President Nellie Gray in calling Americans to the front lines of the battle against abortion.

"Why do we come out to Washington officialdom to mark the anniversary of the Supreme Court declaring that our innocent pre-born brothers and sisters are not persons and some people could intentionally kill them with impunity in America?" asked Gray. "Because the killing of one innocent person is the killing of too many. But over the last 38 years, America has suffered the intentional killing of more than 50 million pre-born children."

"If there were any doubt about this, that doubt was put to rest earlier this week when former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel sought to bolster his pro-abortion bona fides by claiming victory for health care by not putting abortion restrictions in statue."

Government issued Internet ID card required for all Americans

(AFA)  The Washington Times is warning that the White House cybersecurity adviser and Commerce Secretary Gary Locke are drawing up "ObamaNet," President Obama`s mandate for what amounts to a national ID card for the Internet.

President Obama wants to establish passwords for every citizen to centralize your personal information. Instead of logging onto Facebook or one`s bank using separate passwords established with each individual company or web site, you will be required to use the government-issued password.

According to the Washington Times, here are the problems with "ObamaNet":

  • The government will be able to track every web site you visit and every keystroke you send on your home computer.
  • The government will be able to track every purchase you make and every deposit and withdrawal, and gain access to your electronic health care records.
  • The government will be able to track every blog comment you make, along with every Facebook and Twitter post.
  • The government will be able to create lists of your friends and acquaintances and lists of all your political affiliations, political donations, club memberships, hobbies and interests.
  • It`s impossible for the government to make this system 100% secure (remember Wikileaks?), meaning criminals would need to steal only one key to unlock a vast amount of your personal and financial information.

Although the White House will tell you it is a voluntary program, the government "voluntary" programs too often end up becoming mandatory. See Web I.D. = more gov`t control.

TAKE ACTION

Your elected officials can stop President Obama and the Federal government from prying into the personal lives of American citizens.

Email your members of Congress today, asking them to issue a public statement in opposition to President Obama`s plan to issue government-based Internet ID cards.

Abortion Practitioner Killed Seven Babies With Scissors

(LifeNews)  Today, abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell was charged with murder in the death of a woman from a botched abortion, but the charges also include seven horrifying cases of infanticide.

Gosnell faces a murder charge in the death of a woman from a failed abortion — but the infanticide abortion cases are causing significant outrage and may get a federal law involved. Several of his staff were also arrested overnight and will face charges in connection with the cases.

The infanticides are “abortions,” in that Gosnell purposefully induced a premature birth of the infants for the purpose of taking their lives. District Attorney Seth Williams said today that the charges involve a particularly gruesome method of killing the babies.

Bill Gates proposes universal ‘birth registry’ to help control population

(LifeSiteNews.com) - In the keynote address to the mHealth Summit held in November last year, Bill Gates introduced a plan to use cell phone technology to register every birth on the planet in a newborn vaccination database.

Attributing the decline in the number of children who die before their fifth birthday from 20 million in 1960 to 8.5 million today to infant vaccination, Gates told the audience of more than 2,000 at the conference, “About one-third [of that improvement] is by increasing income. The majority has been through vaccines. Vaccines will be the key. If you could register every birth on a cell phone—get fingerprints, get a location—then you could [set up] systems to make sure the immunizations happen.”

Gates explained his theory that parents will have more children when infant mortality is high, so if you reduce child mortality parents will have fewer children, following the example of the urbanized West where birth rates have dropped to below replacement levels.

He decides that answering these questions before speaking or taking action is "a good test to use in guiding what we say."

TV watchdog: New MTV series about teens `dangerous`

(OneNewsNow)  The Parents Television Council (PTC) is calling a new show set to premiere tonight (Monday, Jan. 17) on MTV as "the most dangerous program that has ever been foisted on children."

The series website describes the program as "a wild ride through the lives of a group of high school friends stumbling through the mine field of adolescence...and stepping on most of the mines as they go." Continuing its description: "Be it sex, drugs, the breadth of friendships or the depth of heartbreaks, Skins is an emotional mosh-pit that slams through the insanity of teenage years."

In addition, the website includes an interactive map asking visitors to “post the truth about the biggest parties, heartbreak, friends, sex, and every kind of trouble.” The program about teens carries a TV-MA rating -- for "mature audiences only."
 
PTC spokeswoman Melissa Henson says MTV is being "disingenuous" in kicking off the new series. Henson says based on what her group has seen from the BBC series and trailers for the new MTV version, Skins takes a very disturbing look at teenage life. She says it portrays "lots of promiscuous teenage sex, lots of drug use, underage alcohol consumption; dangerous, reckless, irresponsible behavior...all of which goes rewarded or without consequence; lack of any kind of parental involvement or supervision in the lives of these kids."

Study: One in four California pregnancies ends in abortion

(Sacramento Bee)  The abortion rate in California has declined sharply over the last two decades, but remains higher than the nationwide rate, according to a new study from the nonpartisan Guttmacher Institute.

About 24 percent of pregnancies in California ended with an abortion during 2008, the study found. Nationwide, about 19 percent of pregnancies ended in abortion.

Doctors performed roughly 214,000 abortions in California during 2008. About 18 percent of the nation`s abortions happened here.

About 95,000 of California`s abortions were publicly funded; about half of the nation`s publicly-funded abortions that year occurred in California.

Researchers often talk about the abortion rate -- the number of abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing age. That has declined sharply after peaking in the 1980s and early 1990s.

Justice Department Submits `Deficient` Appeal to Challenges Against DOMA

The appeals were filed months after the DOJ had announced plans to appeal the rulings made in Gill v. Office of Personnel Management and Massachusetts v. United States. In both legal cases, judges ruled that the federal definition of marriage as between one man and one woman was unconstitutional.

The Obama administration’s defense relates that there is a “sufficient rational basis” for the law, clarifying that DOMA establishes uniformity in the federal application of law. It also holds that the definition of a formal union between a man and a woman builds on the basic understanding of marriage.

In God We Trust in S.B. County Chambers

(S.B. County)  The Board of Supervisors was asked at a December 2010 meeting to explore the possibility of displaying our nation’s motto, “In God We Trust” in the Board chambers. The Board approved the display of this motto, at its December 14 meeting, and it has now been placed in the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors’ Chambers as a way to solemnize public occasions and express confidence in our society. Other cities in the area which currently display our nation’s motto at their City Halls include Ontario, Chino and Chino Hills in my Supervisorial District.

A relatively simple act like posting “In God We Trust” helps to show citizens that we are acting on the principles that have grounded our nation through good times and bad times. Throughout our past, America has gone through rough times and persevered. We will endure through the trying times we find ourselves in now.

The motto “In God We Trust” has historical relevance to our nation:

  • “In God We Trust” has been used on U.S. currency since 1864.
  • “Under God” was added to the pledge of allegiance in 1954.
  • “In God We Trust” became the United States national motto on July 30, 1956.
  • “In God We Trust” is engraved at the entrance to the U.S. Senate Chambers as well as above the Speaker’s dais in the House of Representatives.

In both war and peace, “In God We Trust” has been a profound source of strength and guidance to many generations of Americans. The display can be seen effective January 11, 2011 behind the dais in the County Board of Supervisors’ Chambers. Residents are invited to view the display during Board of Supervisors meetings.

(LifeSiteNews.com) - While schools, friends, and the media take a dominant role in informing children about sexuality, a new study has found that nearly all parents believe they should be their children’s primary educators on things sexual.

The study, published this month in the Journal of Adolescent Health, found that 98% of parents said kids should get most information on sexuality from parents. 

The researchers interviewed 1,605 parents of school-aged children from Minnesota between September 2006 and March 2007.  The parents were asked: 1) where young people obtain their information about sex, and 2) where they should obtain their information.  In each case, the parents were allowed to pick two of several options.

In addition to the 98% who selected the one option of parents, 58% said sex information should come from teachers, 43% from health care professionals, and 30% from religious leaders.

GLAAD Bullies CNN: Don’t Interview Anyone Who Disagrees With Us

(CitizenLink)  The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) recently published a statement and started a petition asking CNN and other media outlets to stop giving “anti-gay activists a platform for their false and dangerous messages”:

CNN and the rest of the media are doing nothing but exposing their viewers to dangerous anti-gay rhetoric when they invite members of these anti-gay groups onto their programming. Starting in 2011, this needs to stop.

Despite their mission to “promote understanding,” GLAAD makes it clear that not only will they not listen to anyone who disagrees with them, but they don’t want anyone else to even hear other voices on important issues such as sexuality, marriage, identity and male-female complementarity.

While they point specifically to groups like the National Organization for Marriage and The Family Research Council, I’m sure there are plenty of other voices they want to shut down, too.

State-Level Marriage Battles Heat Up

(CitizenLink)  Five states allow same-sex marriage. By year’s end, that number could grow. However, several states are working to protect the definition of marriage.

  • Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, New Hampshire and Vermont have legalized gay marriage.
  • Democratic leaders in the Maryland and Rhode Island Legislatures appear sympathetic to gay marriage, which means it could be legalized soon in those states.
  • At least four other states may consider legislation this year to allow same-sex marriage: Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Washington.

Had Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton`s amendment been approved, passports would have instead listed "mother or parent 1" and "father or parent 2" in order to accommodate homosexuals who are raising children.

Rising Abortion Rate Prompts Calls for More Restrictions -- and Fewer Restrictions

(CNSNews.com) – A liberal abortion-tracking group reports that the near three-decade decline in abortions has reversed course, going up one percent from about 1.2 million abortions in the United States in 2005 to 1.21 million abortions in 2008.

The group says the uptick points to the "need to enact and enforce laws that prohibit the more intrusive forms of harassment” against abortion providers. But a pro-life group said the numbers mask a human tragedy.

L.A. Billboards Focus on Black Babies Killed in Abortion

(LifeNews)  The City of Angeles will be getting the message that a large number of black angels — unborn children — are killed there every year — more so than babies of other races.


This week, the Radiance Foundation is launching its “Endangered Species” billboard campaign in Los Angeles, California, after having experienced significant success and getting massive media attention with campaigns in other states.

In conjunction with Walter Hoye, a pro-life African-American pastor who was jailed in Oakland for violating a new law passed there to target him for presenting abortion alternatives outside abortion centers, the group has purchased 70 billboards across the town with the message that too many black children are killed in abortions.

VFW sues Obama administration over Mojave cross

(WorldNetDaily)  The California department of the nation`s largest veterans organization has filed a lawsuit against federal authorities, demanding the Obama administration obey a congressional order permitting the Veterans of Foreign Wars to maintain the Mojave Memorial Cross.

The Cross, originally erected by veterans in 1934, had stood as the country`s only national monument dedicated specifically to World War I veterans, until a lawsuit brought against it in 2001 resulted not only in legal controversy over "the separation of church and state," but also the courts ordering the Cross be shrouded in a plywood box so it couldn`t be seen.

4th sentencing set for (German) homeschooling parents

(WorldNetDaily)  Two parents are facing a fourth sentencing hearing for their convictions for teaching their own children at home, according to a homeschool advocacy organization that monitors such developments around the world.

Juergen and Rosemarie Dudek are facing another court date in Germany on Thursday for the "criminal offense" of teaching their children at home, according to officials with the Home School Legal Defense Association.

At their first hearing they were fined, and then at a second hearing in 2008, they were ordered to serve three-month prison terms when a prosecutor insisted he was unhappy with fines and wanted them in jail.

At a later hearing in 2009, however, a judge spared them the jail time and fined the couple $181, despite arguments from the prosecutor that only jail is a deterrent to homeschooling families.

Obama Eyeing Internet ID for Americans

(CBS News/Cnet)  President Obama is planning to hand the U.S. Commerce Department authority over a forthcoming cybersecurity effort to create an Internet ID for Americans, a White House official said here today.

It`s "the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government" to centralize efforts toward creating an "identity ecosystem" for the Internet, White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt said.


That news, first reported by CNET, effectively pushes the department to the forefront of the issue, beating out other potential candidates, including the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. The move also is likely to please privacy and civil-liberties groups that have raised concerns in the past over the dual roles of police and intelligence agencies.

The announcement came at an event today at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, where U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke and Schmidt spoke.

The Obama administration is currently drafting what it`s calling the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, which Locke said will be released by the president in the next few months. (An early version was publicly released last summer.)

Public strongly opposes debt ceiling increase

(Reuters)  The U.S. public overwhelmingly opposes raising the country`s debt limit even though failure to do so could hurt America`s international standing and push up borrowing costs, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday.

Some 71 percent of those surveyed oppose increasing the borrowing authority, the focus of a brewing political battle over federal spending. Only 18 percent support an increase

The poll underscores the tough task ahead for U.S. lawmakers as the debt nears its current ceiling of $14.3 trillion. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner last week warned that a failure to raise the borrowing limit in the coming months could lead to "catastrophic economic consequences".

Cohabiting couples far more likely to suffer from partner abuse, statistics show

(LifeSiteNews.com) - Increasing rates of violence between couples in the United States and Europe have been widely attributed to the global recession, but the problem has another dimension that is often ignored: it is far more likely to occur between unmarried, cohabiting couples than married couples.

Spanish statistics, which have been highlighted in recent years by Europe’s Family Policy Institute (FPI), and recently reported by the Spanish Newspaper ABC, indicate that while only 11% of Spanish couples cohabit without marriage, such unions account for 58% of the most violent crimes between couples. For every one protection order issued for a married couple, ten are issued for cohabiting couples.

FPI also reports that, according to Spanish government statistics, “for every homicide that is brought about in a marriage, 12 are produced” in non-married couples. Moreover, the increase in such homicides in recent years is largely explained by cohabitation; homicides have jumped 45% among cohabiting couples, while they have actually fallen 15% among married couples.

Many of the recent reports of mass animal deaths worldwide have been compiled by an anonymous person into one big, unsettling Google Map.

The atlas of animal annihilation has pins placed at the sites of die-offs and offers links to news stories chronicling a particular "aflockalypse."

Court asked to give up control of student`s religion Read more: Court asked to give up control of student`s religion

(WorldNetDaily)  The Supreme Court in New Hampshire today was asked to reverse a lower court decision that ordered a homeschooled student who was "well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising and intellectually at or superior to grade level" into a public school because she was too "vigorous" in defense of her Christian faith.

"Parents have a fundamental right to make educational choices for their children,” said John Anthony Simmons, an attorney allied with the Alliance Defense Fund.

"Courts can settle disputes, but they cannot legitimately order a child into a government-run school on the basis that her religious views need to be mixed with other views. That`s precisely what the lower court admitted it is doing in this case, and that`s where our concern lies," Simmons said.

The dispute arose as part of a modification of a parenting plan for the girl, who was 10 in 2009 when the court intervened in her schooling program. The parents divorced in 1999 when she was a newborn, and the mother had homeschooled her daughter since first grade with texts that meet all state standards.

Parents should give babies sense of sexuality from birth: Planned Parenthood

(LifeSiteNews.com)  A program touted as “a bold, nationwide, social change effort” is being launched by Planned Parenthood to alter family dialogue about sexuality and encourage parents to ease their children’s transition into a sexually active lifestyle.

Entitled “Real Life. Real Talk,” the program was first used in Connecticut, New York, Maine, and Arizona between 2004 and 2008, and its nationwide distribution is now being funded by groups that include the Ford Foundation.

The stated goal of the program is “to positively change the social climate in communities” with “more open, honest, and balanced talk” about sex; it targets parents and guardians of children as young as 8 years old.

Rep. Blackburn gets Democrat`s support on legislation to strike net neutrality

(The Hill)  Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) filed legislation Wednesday to strike down Internet line regulations passed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in December.

She already has a Democrat supporting her effort, with Blue-Dog Democrat Rep. Dan Boren (Okla.) joining her on the bill. 

Blackburn`s office said she is also joined by more than 60 members, including the majority of Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. 

The bill states that regulations impacting the Internet must be left to Congress, striking the FCC`s rules. 

"The FCC`s Christmas week Internet-grab points out how important it is that we pass this bill quickly," Blackburn said in a statement. 

"I agree that the Internet faces a number of challenges. Only Congress can address those challenges without compounding them. Until we do, the FCC and other federal bureaucracies should keep their hands off the `net," she said.

Blackburn, a member of the House Communications subcommittee and the incoming vice chair of the trade subcommittee, has been a leading critic of net neutrality. She filed the same bill in the last Congress.

Even if “the current society has come to different views [than the original framers],” he said, “you do not need the Constitution to reflect the wishes of the current society.

Over two million children homeschooled in U.S.

(LifeSiteNews.com) - In a new study released today the National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI) estimates there are over 2 million children being homeschooled in the U.S. in 2010.

“The growth of the modern homeschool movement has been remarkable,” said Michael Smith, president of the Home School Legal Defence Association. “Just 30 years ago there were only an estimated 20,000 homeschooled children.”

According to the U.S. Census Bureau (2008) there were an estimated 54 million K-12 children in the U.S. in spring 2010, which means homeschoolers account for nearly 4% of the school aged population, or 1 in 25 children.

U.S. court: May Prop 8 backers defend ban?

(UPI)  A U.S. appeals court has asked the California Supreme Court to decide whether proponents of the state gay marriage ban can defend the ban in court.

The federal appeals court turned for advice to the state high court as the principal interpreter of state law.

After the state Supreme Court ruled same-sex couples could wed, California voters enacted the ban against same-sex marriage with 52 percent of the ballots in November 2008. But a federal judge struck Proposition 8 down, saying it was unconstitutional discrimination. That ruling was stayed until the federal appeals court decides the appeal.

And among those planning to make resolutions, few plan on having accountability or a support system in place to help them keep those commitments, according to the Barna Group.

The most popular pledges this year relate to weight, diet and health. While 30 percent of surveyed Americans plan to make health pledges, 15 percent said their resolutions will be about money, 13 percent will make resolutions relating to personal improvement, and 12 percent said their pledges will relate to addiction.

Meanwhile, only 5 percent plan to make a spiritual or church-related resolution.

Fierce reaction to controversial MTV abortion special

(LifeSiteNews.com) - An emotional half-hour reality special that aired on MTV last week revolved around three people – a young woman, her boyfriend, and the “little ball of cells” that would have called them mom and dad. But by the end of the show, only two of those people remained.

The brief episode featured Markai Durham, one of the teen girls from the series “16 and pregnant.” It followed her agonized steps towards aborting her child after she missed a Depo-provera shot and became pregnant. Fearing another baby while saving for college, the teen, who believed adoption would be too painful, was convinced by a friend, her boyfriend, and her mother that she would not be able to handle keeping the child.

The reaction to the show, entitled “No Easy Decision,” was fierce and began even before it was aired. While pro-abortion organizations and commentators heaped praise on the program, pro-life leaders expressed compassion and grief for the young mother, whose tears they said testified to the post-abortive grief that she suffered.

Children`s library revolutionizes city, makes room for ministry

(Mission Network News) The McEuens moved to Peru in 2009 to work in the areas of discipleship, women`s ministry, ESL classes and literacy. One thing they noticed when they got there was a serious need for a children`s library.

There were libraries in the city of Huancayo with a population of 500,000, but none with a focus toward children. In fact, there were no libraries in which patrons could even peruse the books, much less take one home. If a library guest wanted to look at a library book, he would have to write down the book`s information and wait for a librarian to bring it to him. Renting a book was out of the question.

The idea that children would be able to scan the books, pick one out, and take it home was revolutionary in Huancayo. Since the new library`s inception, the city`s been stirred.

Kids can`t seem to get enough of their new literature sanctuary. "They tell their friends. They bring their friends. They talk to their teachers about it. They bring their parents. There is a hunger--a desire--for this kind of thing," Ash McEuen explains.
