    An April 10 Rolling Stone article featured an interview with Dr. Willie Parker, an abortionist who identifies as a Christian. Parker’s recently released book is titled “Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice” and was ghostwritten by Lisa Miller according to NYMag.com. During the interview, Parker stated: “I don’t think it’s bombast at all that the closest thing I could think of that would be analogous to women not being in control of their reproductive rights would be the horrible legacy of slavery we have in this country.” An April 8 Newsweek.com article noted, “…Parker compares restrictions on abortion to...

    Willie Parker is not the first abortionist to use the Bible to try to justify killing babies in the womb, but he probably has received the most positive attention for it. Parker is an abortionist who works in Alabama and Georgia. He also loves the media spotlight, and frequently claims he performs abortions because he is a Christian. He once described his abortion practice as a “ministry.” In an interview with Quartz this week, Parker claimed the Bible does not mention abortion, therefore it must be ok. He also said God gives women the free will to choose whether to...

    Complaints are mounting against a Utah County judge who earlier this week praised a former Mormon bishop before sending him to prison for sexually abusing two women. Fourth District Judge Thomas Low on Wednesday became emotional as he handed down a prison sentence to Keith Robert Vallejo. Julia Kirby — who was 19 when Vallejo, her brother-in-law, abused her — told The Tribune after the sentencing that she was shocked by the judge's words to her abuser. Now, she plans to file a judicial complaint against him. And she's not the only one. "He completely disregarded her," Lawrence said. "He...

    Easter in Israel is essentially centered on one specific tradition which is the hallmark of the season for local Christians. Easter in Israel is essentially centered on one specific tradition, the Holy Fire ceremony, which takes place on the Saturday before Easter, and is the hallmark of this holiday's season in Jerusalem for local Christians plus the thousands of faithful who make the pilgrimage to the Holy Land for this special occasion. All of Lenten and Easter events culminate in that moment, when the spirit of Jesus fills the tomb site in the Holy Sepulchre. According to their belief, a...

    They marched past bullet-riddled storefronts, bombed-out apartment blocks and makeshift shrines to pro-government “martyrs” lost in the war. Clergymen hoisted on their shoulders a miniature coffin filled with flowers, a symbol of the death of Christ on this most solemn day of Holy Week. Soldiers and black-clad militiamen toting AK-47s provided a measure of security in a pulverized city where rebel car bombs and suicide attackers remain a constant threat. The Good Friday evening procession through the narrow streets of this war-traumatized city highlighted how a reeling but resilient Christian community is gradually coming back to their roots in Homs’...

    Unsealed World News ^ | 3/24/17 | Gary
    It's a hotly debated topic that scares Christians more than non-Christians and causes great fear and confusion all around: who will be counted worthy to escape before the Tribulation (Rev. 3:10, Luke 21:36)?  Who will be raptured?  I've been scared myself by this question because I know that I'm not perfect.  I strive to be perfect, but I, like Paul, still battle against this body of sin and death (Romans 7:21-25). If the level of worthiness that God requires for us to be raptured is our own perfection and sinlessness then neither you nor I have any hope of...

    An undocumented immigrant is taking refuge at a church in Denver while she fights to remain in the country. Jeanette Vizguerra, a mother of four, was scheduled to check in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents Wednesday morning. She wanted to extend the stay on her deportation order, which expired last week, while she applies for a special visa. It was denied. She now faces separation from her American-born children, the youngest of whom is just 6. Vizguerra’s attorney appeared in court for her, saying she probably would have been taken into custody if she appeared. She is now taking...
