Daily Headlines on contemporary issues that impact a Biblical Christian worldview.
“Recent Google Doodle Features Surprisingly Pro-Life Imagery”…
“This week, Google featured imagery in the “Google Doodle” that conveyed overtly pro-life themes: a fully formed, distinctly human unborn child in utero, an image of 17th century midwife Justine Siegemund, and a mother sweetly smiling down at a newborn baby in her arms. Google explained, “Today’s Doodle celebrates Justine Siegemund, a midwife who dared to challenge patriarchal attitudes in the 17th century. She was the first person in Germany to write a book on obstetrics from a woman’s perspective.” The company’s statement went on to celebrate Siegemund’s groundbreaking advocacy for women through promoting safe birth practices.”
“NHL could ice ‘Pride Night’ as growing player revolt pushes league to reconsider ‘woke’ agenda”…
“National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman revealed this week that the league is considering nixing its Pride Night events because an increasing number of players are refusing to participate, and this is becoming a “distraction.”
As previously reported, the NHL has been holding Pride Nights for several years now to show solidarity with the LGBT community. The events basically force players to don LGBT-themed clothing and play with LGBT-themed gear.”
“‘QAnon Shaman’ released from prison following airing of J6 exculpatory footage”…
“After serving eleven months in solitary prior to his sentence being imposed, and only 16 months of his sentence thereafter, it is appropriate this gentle and intelligent young man be permitted to move forward with the next stage of what undoubtedly will be a law-abiding and enriching life,” Chansley’s former attorney, Albert S. Watkins, said in a Thursday statement to DailyMail.com. “I applaud the decision of the US Bureau of Prison in this regard.”
“Fewer Americans prioritizing hard work, patriotism, religious faith: poll”…
“The number of adults prioritizing classic American values like patriotism, religious faith and having children appears to be shrinking.
A new poll conducted by the Wall Street Journal and the independent research institution NORC shows fewer Americans feel these traditional values are as important as they once were.
Under 40 percent of Americans said patriotism was very important to them, and a similar share said the same about religion. In 1998, when the publication first asked about these values, 70 percent of Americans felt patriotism was very important, and 62 percent felt that way about religion.”
“CBS execs bar the word ‘transgender’ from reports on Nashville shooter: ‘This is not journalism’”…
“Top executives at CBS News have banned staffers from using the word “transgender” when reporting on the Nashville shooter — despite the fact that police have said Audrey Hale was just that and cited it as a key point in the case, The Post has learned.
“The shooter’s gender identity has not been confirmed by CBS News,” the network’s executives insisted in a Tuesday memo obtained by The Post. “As such, we should avoid any mention of it as it has no known relevance to the crime. Should that change, we can and will revisit.”
“Democrats introduce “Trans Bill of Rights” in Congress”…
“Sen. Edward Markey (D-MA) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” in the House and Senate, just in time for the Transgender Day of Visibility.
“Day after day, we see a constant onslaught of anti-trans rhetoric and legislation coming from elected officials. Today we say enough is enough,” said Jayapal in a statement. She’s a co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force. She is also the mother of a transgender child. There are currently no out transgender people in the U.S. Congress.”
“Kentucky becomes latest state to ban puberty blockers, sex-change surgeries for kids”…
“Kentucky has become the latest state to ban puberty-blocking drugs and body-mutilating sex-change surgeries for youth younger than 18 after lawmakers overrode a veto by Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear.
The Republican-led Legislature overwhelmingly voted to override Beshear’s veto on Senate Bill 150 Wednesday, voting 29-8 in the Senate followed by 76-23 votes in the House.
Kentucky state police arrested 19 protesters who were in the House gallery during the proceedings in response to their refusal to stop shouting and chanting after they had been told to keep quiet, reported Politico.“
