Judge Orders School District to Halt Prayers, Bible Reading after ACLU Suit. A federal judge this week ordered a Tennessee school district and its employees not to participate in or promote religion at school activities after the district acknowledged it had allowed certain religious expressions in violation of U.S.

Crenshaw issued a permanent injunction Monday against the Smith County School System against school-led prayer and school-endorsed religious expression. The order was part of a “consent decree” – an injunction agreed to by the district.

Christian Girls Are Being Kidnapped at an Alarming Rate in Egypt - John Paluska. Coptic Christian girls in Egypt are being abducted and trafficked at alarming rates according to "Jihad of the Womb," a report that provides an in-depth look at why so many Coptic Christian girls are being abducted, CBN News reports.
Reportedly, Egyptian officials have done little to help Coptic Christian women find their children, and, according to CBN's International Correspondent Gary Lane, "Christian girls are often targeted by Muslim men in heavily Islamic countries like Egypt.

Some are raped and culturally that brings shame to their families. They see conversion to Islam and marriage as their only way out.

A man with a lengthy criminal history was arrested by El Paso police for allegedly destroying a 90-year-old statue of Jesus because his skin color was “wrong.” Police arrested Isaiah Cantrell, 30, on charges of criminal mischief and marijuana possession, KVIA reported, adding that the suspect is being held on $20,500 bond.

Church officials said that Cantrell boldly walked into the St. Diocesan officials released a photo to the media Tuesday afternoon when announcing the statue had been toppled. Hurricanes Leave Opportunity for the Gospel. September 17, 2008 In the wake of back-to-back weather calamities, Christian relief organization workers may be tired, but they’re not whining about it.

BOSTON, Massachusetts, September 16, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Joseph Tobin, who supports homosexuality, stated that Catholics in “good conscience” could vote for pro-abortion Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Tobin’s de facto endorsement, where he mentioned Biden by name, contradicts the country’s top pro-life priests who have warned that “no Catholic can vote for Joe Biden” because of his radical abortion advocasy. The Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey went even further, stating that he has a “more difficult time” with the “other option,” not mentioning President Trump by name.
The Cardinal made the comments during a webinar on “The Church and Catholic Voters in the 2020 Election.” The event was hosted yesterday by Boston College’s Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life.

On one level, no branch of the US government — including the judiciary — has any lawful authority to extend government power beyond what the Constitution itself grants them power over.
