Christian school in UK forced to have Islamist Imam speak

WGRC News - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 12:39pm

A successful Christian school in England has been warned it is to be downgraded by inspectors and could even face closure after failing to invite a Muslim imam to lead their assemblies. The small independent school in the Home Counties was told it is in breach of new rules intended to promote “British values” such as individual liberty and tolerance in the wake of the Trojan Horse scandal, involving infiltration by hard-line Muslim groups in Birmingham. Simon Calvert of the Christian Institute, said evidence is already emerging “of how the new regulations are requiring inspection teams to behave in ways which do not respect the religious character of faith schools.” The new requirements are infringing the rights of children, parents, teachers, and schools to hold and practice their religious beliefs.

Obama says same sex marriage is a constitutional right

WGRC News - Wed, 10/22/2014 - 12:24pm

Although President Barack Obama previously said the definition of marriage should be decided locally, he now believes the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to same same-sex marriage in all states. The Christian Post says, He also suggested that the Supreme Court’s decision earlier this month to not rule on same-sex marriage is the hallmark of his tenure. Obama said, In some ways, the decision that was just handed down to not do anything about what states are doing on same-sex marriage may end up being as consequential — from my perspective, a positive sense — as anything that’s been done.

Idaho Pastors filed lawsuit over same sex weddings

WGRC News - Tue, 10/21/2014 - 2:28pm

Two ordained Christian pastors in Idaho have filed a federal lawsuit and a motion for temporarily restraining Coeur d’Alene city officials from forcing them to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies or face prosecution for violating “non-discrimination” laws.
Donald Knapp and his wife, Evelyn, who run Hitching Post Wedding Chapel have been required by city officials to perform gay ceremonies or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines.
The city says its non-discrimination ordinance requires them to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies because the courts have overridden Idaho’s voter-approved constitutional amendment that affirmed marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The lawsuit states, The city is “unconstitutionally coercing” the Knapps to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies “in violation of their religious beliefs, their ordination vows, and their consciences.
