Daily Headlines on contemporary issues that run counter to a Biblical Christian worldview.
”First woman pastor in Holy Land ordained… On Sunday, a Palestinian from Jerusalem, Sally Azar, became its first woman pastor at an event at the Lutheran church in the heart of the Old City, attended by hundreds of international well-wishers. “I got more excited seeing the excitement of other people,” Reverend Azar told me. “It’s an indescribable feeling to take this step with the support of the church.” – BBC News
“Number of abortions in Texas dropped 99 percent… The National March for Life is tomorrow in Washington, DC., followed in two days by Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Both are timed to correspond with January 22, 1973, when the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision tragically discovered a right to abortion in the US Constitution. Since that time, more than sixty-three million (PDF) babies have been lost to abortion.” – Denison Forum
“Protesters at a drag queen story hour were met with a “rainbow wall” protecting attendees…. Protesters at a drag queen story hour in Baltimore, Maryland were met with a “rainbow wall” blocking attendees’ view of their hateful signs and chants. The event hosted by the Canton branch of Baltimore’s Enoch Pratt Free Library reportedly drew 80 people who came to hear a local drag performer read on Saturday, as well as some two dozen protesters and 70 counter-protesters. Across the street from The Church on The Square, where the event was held, protesters gathered holding signs that said “Cancel Drag Queen Story Hour,” “Drag Queens Belong In Clubs — Not Libraries,” and “You Call It Storytime — We Call It Grooming.”- LGBTQ Nation
“The Number of Children Growing Up in Intact Families Is Rising… Amidst the negative news surrounding the state of marriage and the family in the U.S., a bright spot is beginning to emerge: the number of children being raised by their married mothers and fathers is slowly rising. A new analysis from Lyman Stone, a research fellow at the Institute for Family Studies, found that “[s]ince a low ebb around 2014, the share of kids living with their parents has actually risen by about 1.5 percentage points.” While the relatively low growth rate might seem inconsequential, it stands in stark contrast to the overall pattern of decline in stable American families over the last 50 years. From the early 1960s until around 2014, the share of children living in intact families steadily nosedived from 87% down to around 62%.” – Washington Stand
