The effort to defund Planned Parenthood has failed on the national level, but pro-lifers in the states have taken up the battle to cut off taxpayer funds to the organization, which has cornered a third of the abortion business in the United States.
It is no secret that the American Left has been targeting the youth for a long time, and has succeeded in many ways. After all, the Left appears to have been victorious in taking control of public education, where students are being indoctrinated on a regular basis, forcing conservative and spiritual parents to either enroll their children in private schools or educate them at home.
With the dramatic increase in cell phone use over the past several years, the once-common 1-800 toll-free business number has gone largely by the wayside. But one savvy company has found a creative — albeit unsavory — new use for discarded toll-free numbers. According to the Associated Press, over the past dozen or so years a little-known Philadelphia company called PrimeTel Communications has gained control of nearly one-quarter of all 1-800 toll-free numbers in the U.S. and Canada — an estimated 1.7 million numbers — and is using many of them to direct callers to a phone-sex service.
Last week, the Senate Education Committee of the State Senate of Tennessee passed a bill that forbids public school elementary and middle school teachers from “furnishing any materials on human sexuality other than heterosexuality.”

Four hundred years after its introduction to the English-speaking world, the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible is still one of the most popular and trusted Scripture translations among the American people, a survey from a research group with the Southern Baptist Convention has found. The poll, conducted by LifeWay Research during the 400th anniversary year of the KJV, found that 62 percent of American adults own a copy of the classic of both Western Protestant Christianity and English literature.
Ann Coulter once wrote that the cure for Islamic terrorism was Christianity. This politically incorrect statement drew condemnation from many corners of established elitism. Forcible conversion to Christianity, of course, is not real conversion and it is certain that Ann did not sincerely intend such deeds. But there is another aspect to the modern situation of Christians (and also of Jews) that we need to grasp in order to understand the hellishness of much of the life of mankind: Christianity is under violent, bigoted attack throughout much of the world.
When Glenn Beck announced that he would not be continuing his Fox News program when his contract with the news channel expires in December, his fans were distraught. Since his announcement, however, he has presented his plans following his stay at Fox News, and they are certainly ambitious enough to encourage his fan base.
During Beck’s live stage show in Albany, New York, on Saturday, April 16, he laid out his agenda, described by WIBW as “free of Rupert Murdoch’s encumbrance.”
After a tumultuous few months for the Maraachli family of Canada, Baby Joseph has finally undergone the necessary tracheotomy that will allow him to return home and die in peace surrounded by his family. Today, Baby Joseph left Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis and returned to his home in Ontario, Canada.
Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta is at it again. Over the past year or two America’s latest cultural craze, known by her ridiculous stage name “Lady Gaga,” has been doing her level best to help complete the transformation of the rock music genre into little more than a template for gutter-level, hyper-sexualized shock theater. With her bizarrely androgynous plasticized getups and mindless songs auto-tuned to robotic perfection, Ms. Gaga has managed — with the help of a veritable army of cosmetologists, choreographers, costumers, and techno-geeks — to land at the “top of the pops” and become the cultural phenomenon of the moment.
