    UT faculty senate to consider extending benefits to employees' partners Wendy Bach pays more for health care for her family than most of her co-workers at the University of Tennessee do. The law professor moved here from New York City in 2010 with her partner of 19 years and their 8-year-old daughter. And while Bach's daughter is included on her employer health insurance, her partner is not. Instead, their family pays for a separate insurance policy for her partner, a longtime educator who hasn't been working since they moved to Knoxville.

    Obedience to the "Heavenly Vision" "I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision" —Acts 26:19 If we lose “the heavenly vision” God has given us, we alone are responsible— not God. We lose the vision because of our own lack of spiritual growth. If we do not apply our beliefs about God to the issues of everyday life, the vision God has given us will never be fulfilled. The only way to be obedient to “the heavenly vision” is to give our utmost for His highest— our best for His glory. This can be accomplished only when we make...

    John Podhoretz and Patterico highlight a close connection between Barack Obama and Khalid Muhammad. Obama, as we know, was a disciple of Derrick Bell; in the video that released a few days ago, he urged his listeners to open their hearts and minds to Bells teachings. So, what were Bells teachings? Bell was a fervent admirer of Louis Farrakhan and Khalid Muhammad of the Nation of Islam. Podhoretz quotes a 1994 interview in which Bell said, We should really appreciate the Louis Farrakhans and the Khalid Muhammads while weve got them. Our readers are well aware of the repellent...

    In April 2002, former CIA director James Woolsey dismissed PLO claims that its chairman had been democratically elected. "Arafat was essentially elected the same way Stalin was, but not nearly as democratically as Hitler, who at least had opponents," he said.[1] Now the re-coronation of Russia's Vladimir Putin has set a new record for such "democratic" elections. The "democratic" rise to power of the former KGB officer Putin began in 1999 with a KGB coup. On December 31, the first freely elected Russian president, Boris Yeltsin, stunned the world by announcing his resignation. "I understand that I must do it...

    Top German paper takes topless women off front pageFri Mar 9, 2012 3:11pm EST BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's best-selling daily has decided to remove its trademark pictures of topless women from the front page in a gesture towards complaining readers, the paper said on Friday. Bild, which sells about 4 million copies a day, will now carry the images on page three instead, a format favored by British tabloids. **SNIP** Topless women on the cover have been part of Bild's identity for 28 years. More than 5,000 have bared their breasts there since 1984, the daily said.

No one could stand against them, because the people of all...

    This past week released a video of a young Obama singing the praises of a race-baiting prof from Harvard. I hate to say this, but I dont think that particular video is going to dissuade the Obama zombies or the blissfully disengaged from voting for four more years of this fetid mess. Why the pessimism, you ask? Well, its not because the incriminating video is not significant; it clearly is, as it once again establishes BHOs deep allegiance to the lunatic fringe on the Left. However, his step-n-fetch voting block shares his diehard Euro-socialistic beliefs and does not mind...

    A US soldier has killed 16 Afghan civilians, including nine children, after entering their homes in Kandahar. Sky sources said the Afghan victims also included women and elderly men.

The Nato-led International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) coalition confirmed the incident but did not release the number of killed or injured. Sky defence reporter Mark Stone said: "Details are still sketchy and various death tolls have emerged. "It appears to be an isolated incident and...

    I was recently having a drink and cigar in the office of a good friend who runs one of the conservative movements most powerful advocacy groups. Im not going to name him because this problem is not unique to his group nor, in fact, is it unique at all. My friend showed me his groups latest video. It needed a little work, but overall it was excellent. The only problem is no one who matters is ever going to see it. It will be polished a bit, put on the Internet and sent to donors. And thats about all...

    BY SR. MARYANN WALSH, USCCBThe Amish are exempt from the entire health care reform law. So are members of Medi-Share, a program of Christian Care Ministry. Yet, when the Catholic Church asks for a religious exemption from just one regulation issued under the law the mandate that all employers, including religious institutions, must pay for sterilization and contraceptives, including abortion-inducing drugs the Administration balks.The government respects the First Amendment that guarantees the right to freely exercise ones religious beliefs, but only to a point. In the health care law it picks and chooses which beliefs it respects. The...

    The old paradigm that a country has the right to decide who enters it has been decisively overturned in Europe, it's under siege in such first world countries as America, Canada, Australia and Israel by the creed that says it's the human rights obligation of every nation to accept every refugee. Given a chance a sizable portion of the third world would move to the first, a minority because of oppression and a majority because the opportunities and freebies are much better there. Even low ranked first world nations still find themselves swamped with refugees looking to move in. International...
