210 million phones numbers on the FTC`s 2011 Do Not Call List

(The Hill)  Almost 210 million phone numbers have been registered in the Federal Trade Commission`s Do Not Call Registry, the Commission said Wednesday.

The FTC issued its Do Not Call Registry data book for fiscal 2011 on Wednesday, which revealed an increase of over eight million phone numbers from last year. The number of complaints about unwanted telemarketing calls also increased from 1.6 million to 2.3 million in fiscal 2011.

The National Do Not Call Registry allows consumers to opt out of receiving telemarketing calls at home.

The FTC notes most telemarketing robocalls have been illegal since September of 2009. Consumers wishing to sign up for the Do Not Call Registry can do so here.

Without marriage, `everything else is weakened`

(OneNewsNow)  A spokesman for the Family Research Council (FRC) says his organization`s new study on the family should shock the nation.

The Marriage and Religion Research Institute`s annual "Index of Family Belonging and Rejection" shows that only 45 percent of American children reach their 17th year with both their biological parents married (since before or around the time of their birth), while 55 percent do not. FRC spokesman Pat Fagan says broken families lead to lower educational performance, higher poverty, higher out-of-wedlock birth, higher crime, and shortened longevity -- and the list goes on, he says.

Steve Jobs: ‘I’m glad I didn’t end up as an abortion’

(LifeSiteNews) Since Steve Jobs’ death in October, numerous pro-life commentators have linked the fact that Jobs was adopted to the issue of abortion – pointing out how different the world would be if Jobs’ birth mother had simply chosen to abort her unwanted pregnancy.

In the new authoritative biography of Jobs, biographer Walter Isaacson reveals how Jobs set out to find his birth mother in the early 80s, even hiring a private detective for the task.

Jobs explained to Isaacson why he was so determined to find his biological mother:

“I wanted to meet [her] mostly to see if she was OK and to thank her, because I’m glad I didn’t end up as an abortion,” he said. “She was 23 and she went through a lot to have me.”

Tebow to critics: I won’t back off talking about Christ

(LifeSiteNews) Even as Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow continues to stump critics with his miraculous game-saving abilities, the NFL’s rising star has again proved that he’s not about to let fame get in the way of his relationship with God.

In a radio interview on Monday discussing Tebow, former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer had complained that the overtly Christian football sensation should tone it down. Plummer told radio’s XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix that he respected Tebow’s abilities, but “when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ, then I think I’ll like him a little better.”

`Rainbow Day` bias

(OneNewsNow))A pro-family attorney says officials of one California school district were biased when they wouldn`t allow a parent to be involved in her child`s education.

The Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) filed legal briefs with the California Court of Appeal, arguing that San Jose Unified School District officials broke the law by refusing to acknowledge Norina Mooney`s request to make changes to a pro-LGBT event at her daughter`s school.

The lawsuit stems from a "Rainbow Day" event at Castillero Middle School that addressed the issue of lesbian, "gay," bisexual, and transgender bullying. Mooney asked the school district to place a request on the agenda that would recognize other minorities who are affected by bullying, but the superintendent and board president refused.

Is abstinence education working?

(OneNewsNow)  While some experts credit the sagging economy for last year`s low birth rates, a Christian public policy women`s group suggests another reason.

Janice Crouse of Concerned Women for America (CWA) says the truth is that teen birth rates have been dropping for several years now, and the stats from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are good news.

"[Teen birth rates] dropped nine percent. This is about the third year in a row when these have declined," she reports. "It`s also a record low for younger and older teenagers and for every single race, and that is particularly significant because the black rate has been very high in comparison to other races, and also with Hispanic groups."

Nigerian Christians show American believers how to pray

(Greeley Gazette) With the U.S. reportedly poised to send troops into the region, Christians in Nigeria are providing an example of how believers should stand during intense persecution.

Last year over 2,000 Christians in the country were murdered by Muslim extremists. While it is often tempting in trials such as this to pray for deliverance, the Christians in Nigeria are praying for something else.

Carl Moeller, president of Open Doors USA, said the Christians are praying for the strength to stand strong.

Moeller said, “They don`t ask for us to pray that persecution would stop. They pray instead, that they would be strong in the midst of persecution, and to empower them to be bold witnesses despite the obvious persecution in many places."

Prop. 8 supporters have right to defend amendment in court: California Supreme Court

(LifeSiteNews) The California Supreme Court ruled today that the longtime legal defenders of the state’s constitutional amendment defining marriage between a man and a woman have standing to continue doing so.

The role of supporters of Proposition 8 in defending the amendment is critical, since the state’s governor and attorney general have refused to do so.

The Supreme Court issued the non-binding ruling at the request of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is considering Prop. 8 after District Court Judge Vaughn Walker struck it down last year.

Massachusetts passes bill making transgenderism/crossdressing a protected class

(LifeSiteNews)  The Massachusetts legislature has passed a bill that elevates cross-dressing or transgendered individuals to a protected class, and grants universal access to sex-segregated areas such as bathrooms based on personal “gender identity or expression.”

The measure, known as the “Transgender Equal Rights Bill” (H. 502 in the House and S. 764 in the Senate) passed the upper chamber on Wednesday in a voice vote. It’s unclear when the bill will receive final approval votes and be signed into law by Democrat Gov. Deval Patrick, a strong gay rights supporter.

The bill inserts “gender identity” as a protected class under the state’s hate crime law, and also makes it so that a school or other business would be violating the law if it rejected an applicant because he or she was a crossdresser.

Notorious ‘sex week’ at Yale faces the axe

But if the university’s president and a committee tasked with studying campus sexual climate have their way, Yale’s most notorious event won’t happen again – at least not on Yale property, or using Yale’s name.

In a September 15 report issued by the Advisory Committee on Campus Climate, members of the committee said that they heard “over and over” from students, faculty, and staff that “Sex Week” is “highly problematic.”

Phillip E. Johnson`s Darwin on Trial has provoked extreme reactions ever since it first challenged Charles Darwin`s theory of evolution in 1991. Now considered a classic defense of intelligent design, it`s still stirring debate in the scientific community with its 20th anniversary edition.

"Phillip E. Johnson’s work brought the intelligent design movement together," said Casey Luskin, a research coordinator for the Discovery Institute, an intelligent design advocacy group. "It is a criticism of Darwin`s theory of evolution on scientific grounds. It has really united a lot of people."

The vote was 10-8, with all committee Democrats favoring appeal and all Republicans opposed. The only immediate effect is political: Democrats can show part of their liberal base of backers that they strongly support equality in federal benefits for gay couples.

Most Americans Own a Bible, So Why Aren`t They Reading It?

According to research commissioned by American Bible Society, Barna Research polled 2,000 Americans and discovered that nine out of 10 households own a Bible. A full 86 percent of people surveyed indicated that they consider the Bible to be sacred or holy. That’s the good news.

But this positive view of the Bible and high rate of Bible ownership in America begs a question: what are Americans doing with all these Bibles? To put it another way, is the Bible simply sitting on our shelves or is it being read? And what difference does it make in our society if we’re not actually reading the Bible?

"Today the [Supreme] Court rejects an opportunity to provide clarity to an establishment clause jurisprudence in shambles," Thomas said in the dissent handed down last Monday. "A sharply divided Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit has declared unconstitutional a private association`s efforts to memorialize slain police officers with white roadside crosses, holding that the crosses convey to a reasonable observer that the state of Utah is endorsing Christianity. The 10th Circuit`s opinion is one of the latest in a long line of `religious display` decisions that, because of this court`s nebulous establishment clause analyses, turn on little more than `judicial predilections.`"

"Mutant" as a Codeword for "Gay" in the X-Men Movies

(Townhall)  The X-Men movie series, based on the comic books of the same name, is well-known for its unusual cast of gifted mutants and for its extraordinary special effects. What is not as widely known about the X-Men is the fact that the movies, along with the comic books, draw many clear parallels between the mutants and the gay and lesbian community. It is an open secret that the most recent movie in the series, “X-Men First Class,” which serves as the prequel for the other films, is especially overt in presenting these parallels.

Zach Stenz, one of the First Class screenwriters, explained on a Facebook comment posted in June: “I helped write the movie, and can tell you the gay rights / post-holocaust Jewish-identity / civil rights allegory stuff was put in there on purpose.

Girl Scouts now allow `transgendered boys` to join Brownie troops

(AFA)  Send an email to the new Girl Scouts of America chief executive, Anna Maria Chávez, expressing your disappointment in their recent decision to allow boys as troop members.

The Girl Scouts of Colorado has flip-flopped on a decision not to let a 7-year-old boy join their organization, now saying he is welcome even though he`s not a girl, according to FoxNews.

The Girl Scouts issued a statement to the local Fox affiliate, saying they are an inclusive organization and will accept "Bobby." The troop leader who turned him away made a mistake, they said, and the situation is being rectified. "If a child identifies as a girl and the child`s family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout," the statement said.

This follows a long history of liberal leanings by the Girl Scouts of America:

  • Girl Scouts supports Planned Parenthood
  • Girl Scouts recognizes many "gods"
  • Girl Scouts advances lesbianism and radical feminism

The Girls Scouts of America has lost it`s way and lost its mind. A boy is not a girl, end of story.

Jefferson misquote doesn`t go unnoticed

Backyard Skeptics recently unveiled a billboard in Orange County that reads, "I do not find in Christianity one redeeming feature. It is founded on fables and mythology" -- a quote they claim is by Thomas Jefferson. But experts at the Jefferson Library Collection in Monticello tell The Orange County Register that no evidence shows that the principal author of the U.S. Declaration of Independence ever made the statement. In response, the atheist group`s director, Bruce Gleason, says he does not know where the quote came from, and he admits that he should have done more research before the billboard went up.
