Chicago has as many as 10 murders in a given weekend, putting it on track to have over 500 murders this year, and most of those murders are committed by blacks against blacks as a result of black "victim group" status and political pandering.
Wheaton College, an Illinois school considered by many to be the leading higher education institution in the evangelical community, has joined the throng of religious organizations — including Washington D.C.-based Catholic University of America — suing to overturn the Obama Administration’s contraception mandate. The mandate, part of the “Obamacare” socialized health plan, requires that employers, including non-church religious organizations, provide free contraception — including abortion inducing drugs — with their employee health plans.

Harming Penn State University's football program does nothing to advance justice. It simply means that the NCAA is going to punish a large number of people, such as the players involved in the program, the new coaches, and students and others who have an emotional or even financial vested interest in the program’s health, who had nothing to do with the child sex-abuse scandal.
Planned Parenthood offered condolences to the family of a woman who hemorrhaged to death following an abortion at one of its Chicago clinics. Twenty-four-year-old Tonya Reaves died July 20 after undergoing what CBS News described as a “cervical dilation and evacuation” abortion procedure in the Planned Parenthood clinic at 18 S. Michigan Avenue. According to the Cook County medical examiner’s office, while the abortion procedure contributed to Reaves’ death, an intrauterine pregnancy was also listed as a factor.
Everyone wants to know why 24-year-old James Holmes, the killer in the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, randomly shot over 70 people, killing 12 innocent moviegoers. Why did he do it? What was his motive? What drove him to massacre so many people he didn’t know, including children? The answer will never be provided by the psychologists, or the media, or the government. Most of them are too unwilling to figure out why these massacres are taking place. And if they knew the answer, they would not want the public to know it.
Last month, the U.S. military celebrated its first on-base “wedding” ceremony for same-sex couples when an Air Force sergeant “married” his homosexual partner at a base in New Jersey. Tech Sgt. Erwynn Umali and Will Behrens, a civilian, “married” June 23 on the grounds of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey, where Umali was stationed.
The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) appears to be bending over backwards to make certain that homosexuals feel accepted and valued in the military. On July 21, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta permitted active duty military personnel to march in uniform in San Diego’s notorious “gay pride” parade, the first time such an allowance has been made.
The president of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, son of the chain's founder Truett Cathy, the fast-food chain that has been attacked by homosexual activists for its moral and biblical stand on marriage, has put the company in the cross hairs of cultural controversy once more for re-affirming its commitment to traditional family values.
Following a two-year closed-door review, and much to the chagrin of "gay" activists, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has announced that it will continue with its policy of excluding practicing homosexuals from membership and leadership positions within its ranks.
