New woes for HealthCare.gov: Wrong tax info sent out

WASHINGTON (AP) – In a new setback for the health care law and the people it’s supposed to help, the government said Friday it made a tax-reporting error that’s fouling up the filings of nearly a million Americans.


Atheist group threatens suit over ‘angels’ on memorial to beloved teacher

A West Virginia middle school took down the crosses from a memorial to a beloved teacher, but is standing firm on the angels etched into the stone, despite an atheist group’s threat to sue on constitutional grounds. Joann Christy’s 26-year career educating children at Ravenswood Middle School came to a tragic end in 2004, when she died in a car accident.

Sex Conference ‘Educates’ Students on Cyber Sex…And It’s Sponsored By Oregon Education Department

Sex-Ed has come a long way. Condoms on bananas have gone by the wayside – in favor of ‘educating’ students and teachers at a Oregon annual conference on how to engage in kinky cyber sex and using meth.

Remember What Coretta Scott King Thought About Amnesty, by Ian Smith, National Review

Black political leaders have abandoned their constituents on immigration. In another year of chronically high unemployment among America’s black communities, it’s important we remember the tireless work of the late civil-rights champion and former congresswoman Barbara Jordan. Ms. Jordan was picked by President Clinton to lead the bipartisan U.S.


WORLD | Weaning ourselves off mother’s milk | Andrée Seu Peterson | Feb. 20, 2015

At Saturday morning coffee with the girls I realized why our country is not going to defeat ISIS. There is something about much of American Christianity’s present form (not the Bible but Christianity) that is not forceful enough to take it on. After the topic of weather is exhausted, someone in the klatch timidly brought up current events.


Christian Florist Found Guilty of Discrimination for Declining ‘Gay Wedding’ Refuses Settlement

KENNEWICK, Wash. — A Christian florist from Washington who is in jeopardy of losing her business, home and life savings after a judge found her guilty of discrimination this week for declining to fulfill an order for a same-sex ceremony has rejected an offer to settle the matter if she promises to service homosexual “weddings” in…

Homeschool Children Seized By Authorities to Remain in State Custody for at Least Another Month

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. — Seven homeschoolers in Arkansas who were seized by the Garland County Sheriff’s Department last month will remain in state custody for at least another month after a hearing over the matter was pushed back until March. As previously reported, the children of Hal Stanley and his wife Michelle were removed from their Hot Springs…


Court Rules ‘God Bless America’ Not Unconstitutional

The Florida high school that told a student not to say “God bless America” during morning announcements said this week that the student did not violate the U.S. Constitution.

Really who knew? Did you ever think the day would come when being AMERICAN would be considered unconstitutional?

Commentary on the news from a Conservative Christian viewpoint

Sunni Muslims and Shiite Muslims… What’s the Difference?

Sunni and Shiite Muslims, two main sects of Islam, have been in conflict for more than a millennium. Why does such an ancient division continue to influence politics, foreign policy and even wars today? Most recently, militants from the Sunni-led Islamic State group have waged a bloody war of conquest across parts of Iraq and Syria and have spread to parts of Jordan, Egypt and Libya.


Fifty Shades of Sickness

Here’s one obvious sign that we live in a profane world. “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the “mommy-porn” book turned into a movie, complete with its whips and chains and erotic punishment, debuted to far less controversy than “The Passion of the Christ” in 2004.


 

 


Caution the Loony Birds are at it again. This time they sue a Michigan woman who posted a notice on her church bulletin board seeking a Christian roommate. I guess if she posted a notice seeking a Muslim roommate it would be okay? How about a gay house mate? Or would a transexual or bisexual roomy be more fitting for the Michigan housing center. The world has certainly gone mad in it’s efforts to eliminate God from every aspect of American life. Leaving behind Cuckoo, Dodo and loony birds.

For such a DOPEY decision Fair Housing Center of West Michigan gets to be the proud owner of this week’s DoDo Bird Award, because this outfit has certainly flown over the cuckoo’s nest. Eagle Out!

Fair Housing Center of West Michigan

A civil rights complaint has been filed against a woman in Grand Rapids, Mich., who posted an advertisement at her church last July seeking a Christian roommate.

The ad “expresses an illegal preference for a Christian roommate, thus excluding people of other faiths,” according to the complaint filed by the Fair Housing Center of West Michigan.

“It’s a violation to make, print or publish a discriminatory statement,” Executive Director Nancy Haynes told Fox News. “There are no exemptions to that.”

Haynes said the unnamed 31-year-old woman’s case was turned over to the Michigan Department of Civil Rights. Depending on the outcome of the case, she said, the woman could face several hundreds of dollars in fines and “fair housing training so it doesn’t happen again.”

“The First Amendment guarantees us Freedom of Religion,” he said. “And we have the right to live with someone of the same faith. The Michigan Department of Civil Rights is denying her rights by pursuing this complaint.”
