Tim Tebow Calls on Christians to Stand Up for Christian Values in America

July 14, 2015 World News Comments Off

At a recent event in Tennessee, Tim Tebow said that Christians need to stand up for Judeo-Christian values in America. He said, “What’s amazing when you get up and do something is what God does in your life. We just have to get up and do something. When your identity is found in Christ, your identity never changes. You are always a child of God. That’s why I always say I don’t have to live the roller coaster that the rest of the world lives …” As LifeNews previously reported, Tebow is a popular football quarterback who became a pro-life star when he shared how his mother Pam rejected abortion after

Catholic families: strong on prayer, weak on sacraments

July 12, 2015 World News Comments Off

(RNS) Most of today’s American Catholic parents don’t go to Mass, provide any Catholic education for their children or stress the basic sacraments beyond baptism. And yet a new study of these families finds good news: “They still have a relationship with God and pray for their family,” said a co-author of the research, Mark Gray at the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate. This heartens Susan Wallace, marketing director for the Holy Cross Family Ministries, the organization behind the famous slogan, “The family that prays together stays together.” It commissioned the research in advance of Pope Francis’ September visit to the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia and the Vatican’s October meeting to conclude the church’s Synod of Bishops on…Continue Reading

Kentucky Governor to Christian clerks: Perform gay ‘marriages’ or lose your jobs

July 11, 2015 World News Comments Off

FRANKFORT, KY, July 10, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) — The governor of Kentucky has a stark message for county clerks across the state: Either issue homosexual “marriage” licenses or lose your job. Governor Steve Beshear, a Democrat, refuses to make any consessions for religious freedom, or to protect the consciences of those who believe in natural marriage. Beshear issued a statement saying that government employees “must recognize same-sex marriages as valid and allow them to take place.” Casey Davis is a clerk whose religion teaches that it is unloving to facilitate homosexual sodomy or lesbian sexual activity.  He is among the Kentucky clerks who are not issuing licenses to homosexuals for religious reasons. Gov. Beshear ordered Davis to issue homosexual licenses, or else he…Continue Reading

Do You Know What’s Coming into Your Teen’s Phone?

July 6, 2015 World News Comments Off

You might be surprised at what your kids are exposed to every day   It is 11:30 P.M on a Thursday night. Your 13-year-old daughter is asleep. Suddenly she awakes to a ding from her phone.

Her friend has been acting strangely lately, and although she has never heard her talk about suicide, she is afraid that if something isn’t done, her friend might be dead. So, she quickly texts the other…Continue Reading

No, America Is Not a Great Nation

July 5, 2015 World News Comments Off

Here’s the truth: I am not happy with this country, and you shouldn’t be, either. I am disappointed in it. It disgraces itself. It turns from God. It kills its young. It attacks the family. Am I supposed to pretend otherwise just for the sake of being festive? While Michelle Obama felt pride in her nation for the first time recently, I am more and more developing a deep anger at it, and I think it’s time I admit that out loud. I’m a patriot, but to borrow from Chesterton, a patriot who is uncritical of his country while it teeters on the edge of total destruction is like a son who doesn’t warn his mother that she’s about to fall off a…Continue Reading

Listen to the Pope, Iowa Catholic Leaders Tell GOP

July 3, 2015 World News Comments Off

Catholic leaders call on GOP hopefuls to heed pope’s teachings on climate, economics By THOMAS BEAUMONT and RACHEL ZOLL, Associated Press ANKENY, Iowa (AP) — Roman Catholic leaders in the early voting state of Iowa implored candidates for president Thursday to take up Pope Francis’ call for “profound political courage” by focusing their campaigns as much on improving the environment and income inequality as they have on opposing gay marriage and abortion in past elections. The vocal pivot from such traditional social issues marks the first time U.S. Catholic bishops have publicly asked those seeking the White House to heed the admonitions of Francis’ June encyclical, said Bishop Richard Pates of Des Moines.

Supreme Court upholds ObamaCare subsidies

June 25, 2015 World News Comments Off

The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld ObamaCare subsidies nationwide, in the second major court victory for President Obama on his signature health care law. In a 6-3 decision, the court ruled that subsidies are valid even in states that did not set up their own insurance exchanges. A ruling against the administration would have threatened subsidies worth millions in nearly three-dozen states and imperiled the program itself. For months, though, the administration said it had no back-up plans, confident the Supreme Court would rule in its favor. With yet another challenge to ObamaCare now cleared away, President Obama urged critics to move on.
