    The abortion business Planned Parenthood managed to find a few clergy to help promote its pro-abortion agenda in a new video. Planned Parenthood is desperate for support after Americans elected a large group of pro-life leaders to the United States Congress last fall. Efforts to cut off millions of taxpayer funds to the abortion chain are under way. In an appeal to religious individuals, Planned Parenthood produced a new video this week where four pro-abortion clergy members two Baptist pastors, a Unitarian Universalist pastor and a Jewish rabbi urged people to support the abortion business, according to the...

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Lawrence Mykytiuk cannot document that everything in the Bible took place. What the Purdue University Libraries professor can do is show you that many of the people written about did, in fact, exist.While some would put their hand on the Bible and really mean it when they take an oath, a few revisionist academics would throw it out and say, Thats creative writing. I was looking for concrete, objective evidence outside of the Bible that would help build the case, said Mykytiuk, an associate professor of library science.Mykytiuk (pronounced MICK-ee-took) has added three names to the...

    Nearly a dozen religious organizations joined abortion advocacy groups Wednesday to urge U.S. Senators to keep funding the nations largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. United Church of Christ, Methodist, Presbyterian and Jewish groups were among the 150-plus groups that signed a letter outlining their support of the abortion chain, Obamacare and Medicaid expansions. A group called NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice also signed the letter. We urge you to oppose any repeal of the Affordable Care Act, attempts to change Medicaids open-ended funding guarantee into a block grant or per capita caps, and any attempts to defund Planned Parenthood,...

    The Hebrew B'rit Chadashah / New Covenant Some believe that the New Covenant was originally written in Greek, this view is incorrect. The Hebrew language was never a dead language and this view shows great ignorance of Jewish life in general and Chanukah in particular. Jeremiah 16:19 O YHVH my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. Oh my, that’s why! We have inherited lies, vanity...

    For archaeologists, Mary Magdalenes hometown is the gift that keeps on giving. About a year ago, archaeologists announced the discovery of what was called the Magdala Stone: a stone bench that was part of a first century synagogue, one of the only seven that existed during the Second Temple period, and the first one ever found in Galilee. Considering some local coins dated from the year 29 were also found in that very same synagogue, it is likely that Jesus might have walked in and taught there as part of his ministry. As Zoe Romanowsky explained in this article,...

    Every object is created with a purpose and each one is given its own character trait. Specifically, in regards to Passover, there is a particular intention behind many of the foods we eat, when we eat it, how we eat it and, most importantly, why we eat it. For example, we eat bitter herbs to remind us of the bitter days of slavery. And, when we drink the four cups of wine, we recline to demonstrate the freedom after the exodus and our ability to sit like kings. Throughout Passover, we refrain from eating Chametz means leavened grain any...

    An Italian rabbi has raised a protest against the topic of a conference to be held by the Italian Bibilical Association: Israel, people of a jealous God. Consistencies and ambiguities of an elitist religion.Rabbi Giuseppe Laras said that the conference topicwhich had been approved by the Italian bishops conferencereflected the influence of Marcionism. (Marcionism, a heresy that arose in the 2nd century, rejected the Old Testament and claimed that the stern God of the Hebrews was not the merciful God of the New Testament.) Rabbi Laras went on to lament that Pope Francis has frequently emphasized the same ideas. He...

Jewish people around the globe will be celebrating the holiday of Purim from nightfall on March 11 until after the March 12.
