Students told to stop praying in front of US Supreme Court

In another stunning example of just how far things have gone in our country when it comes to government's hostility to religion, a group of students were told by officials to stop praying outside of the US Supreme Court.

The group of 15 Christian school students, there on a trip from Arizona, were confronted by a Supreme Court police officer and told that their praying was against the law.

According to a spokesman with the Alliance Defense Fund, the officer's interruption of their prayer was "abrupt", and that "they were told to stop praying because they were violating the law and they had to take their prayer elsewhere"... (READ MORE)

Turns out ObamaCare funds abortion after all (just like pro-lifers predicted)

All during the debate over ObamaCare, virtually everyone in the pro-life community told pretty much everyone who would listen - as well as those who refused to listen - that the new health care reform law would result in federal tax dollars somehow being used to fund abortion.

Of course Obama and virtually all Democrats poo-poohed the notion.

Well, now we know...

The Obama Administration will give Pennsylvania $160 million to set up a new "high-risk" insurance program under a provision of the federal health care legislation enacted in March.

It has quietly approved a plan submitted by an appointee of pro-abortion Governor Edward Rendell under which the new program will cover any abortion that is legal in Pennsylvania... (READ MORE)

Planned Parenthood tells woman her unborn child is "not a baby"

Once again, Planned Parenthood has been caught on hidden camera misleading women about abortion. In this case their staffers attempted to use euphemisms to convince a woman her unborn child was "not a baby" and convince her to have an abortion.

First, they misinform the undercover "client" about how soon a child develops a heartbeat, claiming that, "It's around, I think, the 8th or the 9th week that you can hear the heartbeat." The correct answer is a little past three weeks.

Then the Planned Parenthood employee went further, telling the "client", "It's not a baby,
it's a fetus," which, she claims, is "not like a person." And, when asked if an abortion will hurt the chances of having children in the future, the employee replied, "Nope." But recognized medical statistics show an increase in the chances of miscarriage after abortion to be anywhere from 20-50%... (READ MORE)

Will a 5-point Dem victory turn the U.S. House over to the GOP?

The Christian Coalition of America publishes its 2009-2010 Congressional Scorecard this week and it was revealed that several Democrats had earned 100% scores, which has been very unusual in recent past years. However, since the 2008 election, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has had a huge cushion of votes to enable her to cram down the throats of the American people much extreme left-wing legislation. She has also had the luxury to allow some of her moderate Democrats to vote against her party in key votes.

Pelosi's cushion of votes include many in the 60 congressional districts now in Democrat hands, which President George W. Bush and/or Senator John McCain won in 2006 and 2008. Many of these congressional districts are expected to switch back to the Republicans in this November's election. As the House Republican Leader John Boehner said recently: "Democrats won Congress in 2006 and the White House in 2008, and all we have to show for it is more debt, more government, and fewer jobs"...
