    In a surprising, yet reassuring turn of events, Pope Benedict XIV, the head of the Catholic Church has announced that he is willing to excommunicate any and all Catholic Priests who have been rightfully accused of pedophilia while in service to the Catholic Church. "It is my sworn duty to uphold the tenants of the faith which rest securely on the never changing, holy scripture, which speaks succinctly, yet passionately, against sexual sin within the body of Christ." Pope Benedict wrote in a letter addressed to "Fellow Catholics, Christians, and citizens of this great planet." ...

    Friday June 19, 2009 Several Advertisers Withdraw CBS Support in Wake of Letterman-Palin “Joke” By Peter J. SmithNEW YORK, June 17, 2009 ( – Alaska governor Sarah Palin may have accepted late-night comedian David Letterman’s belated apology for making a rape joke about her 14 year-old daughter, but a grassroots campaign has continued to put pressure on CBS to fire the comedian. The campaign as of yesterday had generated 52,000 petitions requesting CBS fire Letterman, and it appears that two major advertisers, and a possibly a third, have chosen to withdraw support from CBS over the controversy. John Zeigler,...

    Thank you, John Kerry, for reminding me and the rest of America what an evil alternative you and your party represent for this country. I take a backseat to no one in my disgust for the failure of this president and the Republican Party in addressing some of the critical issues facing America – border security, controlled immigration, government spending, etc. So disenchanted was I – and I'm sure I speak for millions of other Americans – that I have been less than enthusiastic about next Tuesday's election. I asked myself: Does it really make a difference which party governs?...

    The Democrats' failed 2004 presidential candidate, Sen. John Kerry, may have just sabotaged his party's highest hopes for the 2006 midterm elections. Karl Rove himself couldn't have engineered a better campaign reminder of the Democrats' utter lack of credibility when it comes to supporting, respecting and leading America's military. Here is what Sen. Kerry told an audience of young people at a campaign event on the Pasadena City College campus on Monday held for losing California Democrat gubernatorial challenger Phil Angelides: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework,...

    A Christmas magic show on British television claiming to recreate miracles – including making a virgin pregnant – has been condemned by Christian groups. "The Magic Of Jesus," broadcast on the independent Channel 4, features illusionists Barry Jones and Stuart McLeod attempting to see if eight New Testament "feats" are possible, reports The Sun newspaper of London. The performers sought to raise a headless corpse from the dead, cure a blind person, feed 5,000 soccer fans with five loaves and two fishes and walk on water, the paper said, but angry Christian leaders said Jones and McLeod are dishonest....

"The government does not intend to introduce the tape or elicit any testimony from the witness about that conversation," Zeidenberg told Judge A. Howard Matz. Judge Matz was stunned by Zeidenberg's announcement, and hinted that the Bush prosecutor was throwing away his case. "You couldn't keep [the tape]...

                  Sen. Byrd wants end to polarized politics By TIM DOYLE Journal Staff Writer SHEPHERDSTOWN - U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., Saturday called on all West Virginians and Americans to reject the current "polarized and poisoned" national political climate. The continuing "take no prisoners ugliness in politics" will only serve to further alienate the American people, Byrd said. "We are all Americans," the eight-term U.S. senator said. "And America functions best when there is serious, civil, informed debate about real issues in a robust and respectful two-party system," Byrd said. Speaking to a luncheon...

    University students have voted to ban the Bible because they believe it could offend non-Christians. Stirling University Students’ Association (SUSA) has voted to remove up to 6,000 copies of the Gideon Bible from more than 2,000 halls of residence rooms. A motion to have them withdrawn was passed by 15-1 at a recent meeting of student council. Seven members abstained. Citing the Scottish Executive’s One Scotland Many Cultures campaign, the students said representing one faith was not in the spirit of equality. Al Wilson, president of the SUSA, said: “The one thing the students have come up with is that...

    A man who was made subject to an Anti-Social Behaviour Order for putting up a sign saying “porking yard” in his pub car park, because it was offensive to Muslims, today described the court action as “a joke”.

Magistrates ordered him to change the wording of the “porking yard” sign at The Swan With Two Necks in St Judes, Bristol, to “parking yard”. He was ordered not to display any signs that may be threatening, abusive or insulting at the pub, which is...

    NEW YORK (AP) - A children's music video that conservatives charge is part of an effort to encourage acceptance of homosexuality is being distributed to more than 60,000 schools nationwide, producers said Thursday. The video features about 100 children's TV characters including SpongeBob SquarePants, Miss Piggy and Oscar the Grouch singing the 1979 disco hit "We Are Family." It will be accompanied by a teaching guide that promotes tolerance of diversity. "The opportunity to bring that message to children around the entire country is truly exciting," said Caryl Stern, senior associate national director of the Anti-Defamation League. "We know at...
