Obama's Safe Schools Czar Says Teach Respect for Homosexuality In Kindergarten

October 21

The Obama administration's safe schools czar, Kevin Jennings, has accused the Baptists, the Boy Scouts and sports fans of anti-gay bias, and he has advocated a special high school for gay teens as well as gay-straight alliance clubs for every high school in America.

Jennings, who was a prominent homosexual activist before being named director of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education, also has called for kindergarteners to be taught to respect all sexual orientations, while insisting that "ex-gay messages" and "Christian values" are 'misused to isolate or denigrate lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people" and have no place in the nation's public schools.

Obama Is Sure Good About Something...Promoting the Homosexual Agenda

October 21

Do you remember the anticipation surrounding the great non-debate between Barack Obama and John McCain hosted by Pastor Rick Warren? Televised from Saddleback Church as millions watched, Warren pledged to ask the hard questions in order to get to the truth. It was a critical juncture in the presidential campaign and there was much public discussion over faith and values and marriage and Proposition 8 and where, exactly, each man stood.

"I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman...for me as a Christian it is also a sacred union...you know, God is in the mix," Obama declared to thunderous applause.

Pro-Life Students Ignore Ridicule, Speak Up For Unborn

October 21

Hundreds of thousands of students from thousands of schools around the world refused to speak today to protest abortion. As they silently stood up for the unborn with red tape on their mouths or red armbands they helped prevent at least 22 abortions on their friends and their babies.

The Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity, a project of Stand True ministries, has grown since its inception years ago to find pro-life people from around the world participating.

Last year Stand True heard back from participants about 59 girls who canceled their abortions on the day of the event due to the efforts of the students and the number now stands at 22 with the event ongoing and only initial reports in so far.

Ads Promoting Atheism Plastered on NYC Subways

The monthlong ad campaign begins next Monday in a dozen Manhattan stations.

It features the slogan, "A Million New Yorkers Are Good Without God. Are You?"

The campaign is being coordinated by the umbrella organization Coalition of Reason. It cost $25,000 and was funded by an anonymous donor.

The coalition has placed similar billboards in the Dallas area and West Virginia. Another group ran ads in Chicago and in the Indiana cities of Bloomington and South Bend.

Plaintiffs Lawyers Target Bayer Over Popular Birth Control Pill

October 21

A Newark, Calif., woman and her husband sued drugmaker Bayer in federal court in San Francisco on Monday, saying she suffered a debilitating stroke after taking the company's popular birth control pill Yaz for a month.

Her lawyer, Michael Danko, says he and co-counsel firm Girard Gibbs filed a similar suit last week and are preparing to file more. Hundreds of such suits filed around the country by Danko and other lawyers in the past month or so are just "the tip of the iceberg," triggered by the publication of two recent studies published in the BMJ, a British medical journal, added Danko, of The Danko Law Firm in San Mateo, Calif.

Susan Galinis, 39, had a stroke in June 2008, which she and her husband blame on Yaz that she took for a month after her doctor prescribed it to ease her premenstrual cramps. Their complaint (.pdf) argues that the drug company aggressively promoted Yaz and misled customers about the risks associated with a new version of drospirenone, a synthetic form of the hormone progestin that Yaz and the older drug Yasmin use.

Community, Students & Parents Clash Over Freedom of Speech

October 21

Words were fired back and forth between anti-abortion protesters and Olympic College students and community members on Oct. 7.

Repulsed by the graphic content of signs from the Kitsap Anti-Choice Project, students responded by making signs of their own and attempted to expel the group from campus.

The response to the content of the protesters message has raised questions about the First Amendment at OC. Questions regarding who has the right to free speech at OC; if there are any limits to what can be said or displayed; by what methods it is acceptable to present a message and if there are any restrictions to where protests can occur have arisen.
