Obama's Czar Wants To Ban Marriage Altogether

October 27

Just when gays are finally convincing judges to let them marry each other, along comes Pres. Obama's regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, who wants to ban marriage completely.

Marriage licenses, he argues, have certain "unfortunate consequences," creating "inequalities" between married couples and singles. "Why not leave people's relationships to their own choices, subject to the judgments of private organization, religious and otherwise?"

There is a very simple and utterly compelling answer to this question, and it can be summed up in one word: children.

October 27

Trevor Keezer said he wasn't on a crusade, he was just wearing a button to work.

The Okeechobee man says his love of God and country got him fired from his Home Depot job, after he wore an American Flag pin on his orange apron that read "One nation, under God...Indivisible."

Though Keezer, 20, wore the pin to work for over a year and a half, he said the button brouhaha didn't begin until he brought a bible to work to read during lunch breaks.

St. Louis Pays $80,000 for Censoring Christians

October 27

The city of St. Louis has agreed to pay $80,000 for censoring the speech of Christians during a "gay" pride festival on city property, according to the Alliance Defense Fund.

The law organization represented the plaintiffs in a case brought over the censorship, and it announced yesterday it had voluntarily sought dismissal of the lawsuit after the city's offending policy had been struck down and the city agreed to pay damages and costs of the case.

"Christian groups shouldn't be banned from public areas for expressing their beliefs," said Rick Nelson of the American Liberties Institute, who served as lead counsel in the case and is allied with the ADF.

Christian Group Sues Over County's Removal of Christmas Display Depicting Birth of Jesus

October 27

John Satawa and the Thomas More Law Center are suing the Macomb County Road Commission after it denied Satawa permission to put up a nativity scene on a public median in Warren, a family tradition dating back to 1945.

The Ann-Arbor based law firm, which bills itself as "a Christian answer to the ACLU," on Friday filed the lawsuit on Satawa's behalf in U.S. District Court, according to various reports, where it will be heard by Judge Gerald E. Rosen.

The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religious Foundation last year wrote a letter to the road commission objecting to the religious scene being erected on public land, noting that "once the government enters into the religion business, conferring endorsement and preference for one religion over others, it strikes a blow at religious liberty, forcing taxpayers of all faiths and of no religion to support a particular expression of worship."

One estimate puts the number of New York City atheists at about one million.

October 27

A hate crimes bill sent to President Obama for his signature raises a red flag for Christians.

Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel agrees with most observers that President Obama will sign the measure -- adding that the president desires to "throw a bone to homosexual activists because they have been breathing down his neck...and this is a way to hold them off."

Majority of Britons Say Creationism Should Be Taught in Schools

October 27

More than half the population believes children should be told about creationism - the belief that God created the world - in school science lessons, a poll reveals today.

Some 54 per cent of Britons want biology teachers to discuss 'alternative perspectives' on human origins alongside traditional explanations of evolution.

They also want children to be told about intelligent design, the idea that aspects of the universe are too complex to be explained by science and natural selection. Critics say this is just creationism under another name.
