A planned $150 million theme park in northern Kentucky, to be called the “Ark Encounter,” is prompting cheers from Bible-believing Christians and gasps of alarm from secularists who fear the attraction may cross the supposed line of “separation between church and state.”
Michigan’s Wayne State University has dropped an award honoring legendary — and highly controversial — journalist and former White House bureau chief Helen Thomas, after the former “First Lady of the White House Press Corps” made anti-Semitic remarks at a diversity conference.
Debates over the content of student textbooks continue to rage on in parts of the country, especially Louisiana, where a committee recently rejected requests to include references to creationism and intelligent design.

California’s Proposition 8, a state constitutional amendment passed by voters in 2008 that defines marriage as between a man and a woman, went before a three-judge panel of the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals December 6, as pro-family champions appealed an earlier lower court ruling that the amendment is unconstitutional.

True history is not served if all that is remembered about December 7 is that it is the 61st anniversary of Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.

John William Finn was an amazing man. He passed away earlier this year just shy of 101 years of age. He was a military hero admired by the tens of thousands of service men and women who met him over the years, as well as the many thousands of people who never had the opportunity to meet him, but who had heard of, or read, his story. He was also a much-beloved husband, father, foster father, uncle, and neighbor. Alice, his devoted wife of nearly 60 years, died in 1998. He continued to live the simple rural life in the rustic home on their Pine Valley ranch near the California-Mexico border east of San Diego.
Are parents unintentionally over-dosing their children with over-the-counter (OTC) medicines? Apparently only costly studies by professionals at medical schools can answer that question, and, of course, only the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can remedy whatever problem might exist.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has released its latest list of groups it accuses of pursuing “anti-gay” agendas by propagating falsehoods and “pumping out demonizing propaganda aimed at homosexuals.” Of the 18 pro-family and conservative groups named, 13 have been particularly targeted for further focus as “hate groups.”
