President Terry O’Neil (left) of the National Organization of Women announced on March 1: “The bishops have not been able to convince Catholic women to not take birth control. We know this because 98 percent of sexually active [Catholic] women take birth control at some point in their lives — just like 98 percent of sexually active non-Catholic women take birth control at some point in their lives. So the bishops have failed and the evangelical preachers that don’t want their women to take birth control — they have failed.”
A Christian pastor who tried to encourage Muslims to leave Islam will receive $100,000 in damages from Dearborn, Michigan, which tried to stop him from evangelizing at the city’s Arab-American Festival.
Dearbornistan, as it is known because of its Muslim population, tried to stop George Saieg from proselytizing among the festival’s Muslim attendees. He sued, as The New American reported in June, and eventually prevailed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. At the time, the court said Saieg was entitled to damages.
Saying "Mexican" rather than "Hispanic," asserting that the majority of welfare recipients are black, or suggesting that most terrorists are of Muslim descent are remarks often characterized as racist or derogatory.

Two prominent so-called ethicists sparked a wave of outrage after arguing in a prominent journal that killing babies after birth should be permissible, claiming newborns should not be considered “persons” and citing the widespread legalized slaughter of pre-born children as justification.
An Indiana state legislator is facing ridicule for his refusal to sign on to a resolution honoring the Girls Scouts on its 100th anniversary, citing the organization’s promotion of abortion, homosexuality, and a liberal agenda destructive of traditional family values.
