Government uses taxes to bribe churches to preach an environmentalist message.
One of the big mistakes people make when it comes to taxes is assuming that the main reason for them is to collect revenue. Our government wants to collect revenue, but that isn’t nearly as high a priority as many people think. The government has many ways of collecting revenue, and can also use credit through its central bank, the Federal Reserve.

The establishment of so-called same sex “marriage” is “a kind of suicide of humanity itself.”
The human race is a biological species. Like all mammals, the species continues through sexual reproduction. Historically, the people responding for raising children have been the parents who produced them. There are limits of course. In some societies parents (usually fathers) had the power of life or death over a child. But in Christian societies that are informed by the Bible parents have Read more [...]
Sterilizing women is the most popular form of birth control in the planet.
After the report on the eugenics deaths in India, the media has been working on rehabilitating the image of programs aimed at reducing poverty by eliminating the reproduction of the poor.

The Supreme Court might destroy Obamcare because of Republican resistance to government money.
USA Today has a write-up of the Supreme Court Case that supposedly might destroy Obamacare: “Four words that could deep-six Obamacare.”
The most serious challenge to President Obama's health care law since it survived the Supreme Court by a single vote in 2012 isn't a balky website, public opinion or the Republican takeover of Congress. It's the Supreme Court — again.

It isn’t just Iraq; the President has ensured more Afghanistan fighting as well.
We already know that Barack Obama is intent on sending Americans back to fight in Iraq, and the Pentagon is encouraging him to do so. But now the New York Times reports that he is making sure we are engaged in combat missions elsewhere as well: “In a Shift, Obama Extends U.S. Role in Afghan Combat.”

Museum censorship takes place when a museum must get rid of displays to satisfy political correctness.
