Super Bowl Ad Gets Focus on the Family Big Traffic for Tebow Non-Abortion Story
February 10

The initial numbers are in and they reveal the Super Bowl commercial featuring Tim Tebow and his mother Pam Tebow exposed large numbers of people to the pro-life message. The ad alone reached a record number of people who watched the football and large numbers of people followed up online.

The new figures are out and they show Super Bowl XLIV was the first sporting event to ever exceed 100 million viewers.

That means 106.5 million people watched the pro-life commercial Focus on the Family ran during Sunday's game -- which bested 1983's M*A*S*H finale and its old record of 105.97 million viewers.

Planned Parenthood Report Oversexualizes Ten-Year-Olds, Undermines Parental Authority

February 10

International Planned Parenthood Foundation's recently released report, "Stand and Deliver: Sex, Health and Young People in the 21st Century," advocates policies that jeopardize the well-being of children's health, the importance of parents and the moral values of our society, Family Research Council said today.

The report promotes contraceptive sex education for children as young as ten years old. Most disturbingly, the report advocates that children as young as ten be "empowered" to "develop satisfying and pleasurable sexual lives."

U.S. Supreme Court to Decide Whether Christian Student Clubs Can Prefer Christian Leaders

February 10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pacific Justice Institute has submitted a friend-of-the-court brief to the United States Supreme Court in a closely-watched free speech and association case involving a law school chapter of the Christian Legal Society.

The case, filed against UC Hastings College of Law in San Francisco, will test whether law schools can deny official recognition to student chapters of the Christian Legal Society. While CLS welcomes anyone to attend meetings and events, it requires that the officers and voting members who provide direction for the Society agree with and abide by the group's Statement of Faith. UC Hastings considers CLS' faith requirement to be in conflict with the school's non-discrimination policies. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of UC Hastings, relying on one of the Ninth Circuit's earlier rulings that had barred a Christian high school club from requiring that its leaders affirm a statement of faith.

Christian Speech Targeted as 'Hate'

February 10

A campaign has been launched in Montgomery County, Md., to classify the speech of advocates for people who choose to leave the homosexual lifestyle as "hate speech," which then could be banned under a new law signed last year by President Obama.

"Hate speech is unwelcome in Montgomery County Public Schools," said an e-mail to the offices of Regina Griggs, national director of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays, known as PFOX. "I would like to ask that you immediately cease distribution of your flyers at our public schools.

"We intend to pursue every method possible to protest your actions if you choose to continue," the message warned.

February 10


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The federal judge in the California Proposition 8 "gay marriage" case apparently is himself a homosexual -- a fact that has been known for months by attorneys involved in the case but one that only became public when it was discussed in a San Francisco Chronicle Sunday column.

The newspaper's Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross said Judge Vaughn Walker's sexual preference was the "biggest open secret" in the landmark trial, which could result in "gay marriage" being legalized in all 50 states. Walker, 65, is not married.

Newspapers Blast NOW President for Saying Tim Tebow Ad Promotes Domestic Violence Against Women

February 10


Just as they defended the pro-life Tim Tebow commercial before it aired during the Super Bowl, newspaper columnists are defending the commercial from the latest attack by the pro-abortion National Organization for Women (NOW) claiming it promoted domestic violence.

The ads feature Pam Tebow sharing her story of how Tim Tebow "almost didn't make it into this world" because of her tough pregnancy. Tebow was advised by her doctors to consider an abortion, but she refused.

In an attempt to mirror the humorous nature of most Super Bowl commercials, the Focus on the Family in-game ad shows Tebow tackling his mom and his mother playfully scolding him for interrupting her.
