Supreme Court to Hear Case Regarding Prayer in Government Meetings
5/21/2013 10:00:00 AM The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case regarding public prayer in government meetings which, depending on the verdict, could greatly alter the future of public religious expression in the United States.
By Katherine Weber
The Supreme Court justices announced Monday that they will be hearing the case of Greece, N.Y. v. Galloway, Susan, a 2008 case filed by Susan Galloway and Linda Stephens, residents of Greece, N.Y., who sued the city, arguing that it had violated the First Amendment rule of separation of church and state by allowing predominately Christian prayers to be held at government meetings.
Galloway and Stephens argued that the majority of prayers held at Greece government meetings from 1999 to 2010 were delivered by Christian clergy, and therefore the city was endorsing the religion.
The city argued that since the country's founding, town councils have included prayer in their meetings and they are constitutionally allowed to exercise their religious heritage.
YOU CRITICIZED OBAMA: FAMED CHRISTIAN RADIO HOST ALLEGES OUTRAGEOUS IRS INTIMIDATION
5/20/2013 11:51:00 AM Dr. James Dobson, a well-known Christian author and radio host, has come forward to discuss the disturbing details of his alleged run-in with the Internal Revenue Service.
By Billy Hallowell
It all started when he decided to create a 501(c)(4) for his radio ministry, Family Talk. TheBlaze interviewed his son, Ryan Dobson, about the 18-month debacle.
The organization, according to Dobson, submitted its application to the IRS on September 2, 2011.
Despite having what he called a "good attorney" who has been working in the industry for 26 years and who has never had an application denied, the IRS allegedly made the process needlessly difficult - at one point threatening to refuse approval.
Moscow defies EU, prohibits gay pride march out of 'respect for morality'
5/19/2013 9:16:00 PM The Moscow city government has rejected an application for a homosexual march permit for the eighth year in a row, citing the need for "respect for morality" and patriotism, according to Russian media sources.
By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman
"According to Russian law, we must work clearly and consistently on maintaining morality, directed to the teaching of patriotism to the growing generation, and not toward unclear aspirations, not to mention taking the city's central squares and streets for this," said Aleksei Mayorov, head of Regional Security for the city of Moscow, according to Interfax
If homosexual activists defy the law and attempt to march as they have in previous years, Mayorov warned that "a certain reaction will follow and the action will be thwarted," according to RIA Novosti. "In our opinion there is no desire for such events in the city."
