However, bringing about change in action demands deeper changes in attitude, a change of heart. This has been the domain of religions for millennia. Religions are sources of inspiration for the transformation of heart...

'Not doing anything satanic' "We're just hanging out," Castañeda told the Tyler Morning Telegraph. "There's kids trick-or-treating, people getting their faces painted ... We're not doing anything satanic or any crazy rituals. We're just existing." According to an event listing, the aim of the festival was...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has been named "chief exorcist" by the head of the country's Orthodox Church as the Kremlin seeks to redefine the goals of its invasion of Ukraine. Putin, when he invaded the neighboring country on February 24, used the term "denazification," saying that was the goal of his so-called "special military operation," but now his security council is shifting to the phrase "desatanization." Aleksey Pavlov, assistant secretary of the security council of the Russian Federation, is now calling for the "desatanization" of Ukraine, saying that there were "hundreds of sects" in the country where citizens have abandoned...

Wade ruling that legalized abortion, fresh evidence of White House efforts to ensure the issue stays front of mind for Democratic voters this year....

Then, they shocked the patriarchy by performing a ritual long considered the exclusive preserve of men. Twenty years after first breaking the glass ceiling, Cuba's Santeria priestesses are still battling to claim their place. The Santeria religion is hundreds of years old -- a mix of beliefs brought to Cuba by Yoruba slaves from West Africa, and Catholicism. Experts say about 70 percent of Cubans are followers of Santeria.

The law ostensibly addressed discrimination against LGBTQ people.
