As revolution sweeps through the Arab world, a deeply troubling trend is emerging – the absence of religious liberty as a key element in the transitioning governments and the failure of our government to publicly and vigorously defend this most fundamental of liberties. This reality is especially disturbing in Iraq and Afghanistan, nations liberated at great cost of American lives and treasure.
ALEXANDRIA, La. (BP)—What is more preferable than being a child born into a poor home? According to Rep. Gwen Moore the alternative is being aborted—killed in your mother’s womb.
Children in poor homes, particularly single parent homes, are subjected to “eating Ramen noodles” and “mayonnaise sandwiches,” Moore said during a debate in the House of Representatives over a bill that would defund Planned Parenthood of federal tax dollars.
Are there books missing from the Bible? The issue of whether the Bible contains the right books produces strange bedfellows. Agnostics, liberal Christians, Muslims, and fictional novels such as The Da Vinci Code jointly argue that the fourth-century Roman Emperor Constantine used the power of his office to force the church to exclude certain books from the approved reading list. The power of the Roman church, then, oppressed equally diverse yet viable “alternative Christianities.” This popular viewpoint resonates with aspects of postmodern culture that grants privileged status to oppressed groups.

MTV’s new series Skins is, according to creator Bryan Elsley, “a very simple and in fact rather old-fashioned television series about the lives and loves of teenagers, how they get through high school, how they deal with their friends, and also how they circumnavigate some of the complications of sex, relationships, educations, parents, drugs and alcohol.”
MYRTLE GROVE (FBW)—Myrtle Grove Baptist Church recently hosted Mike Hagen and the Strength Team for more than a dozen performances over five days in Pensacola, according to the church’s pastor, Ron Lentine—who said that as a result, 190 made decisions for Christ and 54 made first time decisions.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (TEXAN)—Southern Baptists must stop idolizing materialism if they are to return to their first love of Jesus Christ, declared Southern Baptist Convention President Bryant Wright in speaking to the Association of Baptist State Papers Feb. 16. It’s a focus he has shared across the country in calling for biblical stewardship.
“A radical reprioritization of our commitment to the Great Commission begins with the individual,” Wright said, using his own congregation at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church in Marietta, Ga., as an example. “The number [of members] that gives nothing to the Lord’s work is astounding.”
WASHINGTON (BP)—Another series of videos secretly recorded at Planned Parenthood clinics—in this case apparently showing its employees agreeing to aid sex traffickers whose prostitutes are in their early teens—has renewed calls for the federal government to defund the country’s largest abortion provider.
From Feb. 1 to 8, the pro-life organization Live Action released video footage from hidden-camera investigations at six clinics that showed Planned Parenthood staff signaling cooperation with a self-described pimp in testing for sexually transmitted diseases, and providing birth control and/or abortions for his alleged, under-age sex workers. The pimp and, in some cases, a prostitute who accompanied him to the clinics were actors doing undercover work for Live Action.
