  • As disgusting as it seems, abortion activists are trying to turn the Planned Parenthood abortion business into a fashion statement.

    At celebrity awards shows this year, a number of celebrities wore little gold pins of the abortion chain's logo. Now, a company has created a pink lipstick to benefit the group that aborts more than 300,000 unborn babies every single year.

    The media company Studio 71 created the exclusive Planned Parenthood lipstick for its Lipstick Lobby arm, TubeFilter reports. Indie retailer Opening Ceremony is selling the lipstick, and the proceeds benefit the abortion group.

  • Charlie Gard's mother spoke out on British TV this week about her son's condition and the helplessness she feels as a parent.

    Charlie is suffering from a rare mitochondrial disease, and his parents want to take him to the United States for an experimental treatment. His case gained international attention as his parents fought a series of court battles for their son, but ultimately lost. Last week, the European Court of Human Rights ruled against his parents' appeal to take him to the U.S. A British court also ruled that his life support can be removed against his parents' wishes.

    Connie Yates, Charlie's mother, told Good Morning Britain this week that she does not want her son to suffer; she just wants him to have a chance at life. She said it has been "absolute living hell" to wait and wonder when the hospital might end his life support.

  • I was saddened to hear that the BMA have voted to recommend the decriminalisation of abortion. Having lost a baby at 29 weeks, I know only too well the effect that these laws have on those, who like me, refuse a termination and who lose a child.

    In the summer of 2015, at 23 weeks pregnant, I was admitted to hospital with a diagnosis of severe pre-eclampsia and a baby suffering from Intrauterine Growth Restriction. After many scans and tests, we were told in stark terms that the baby had a 1% chance of survival and that, in the doctor's experience, within two weeks I would be so ill that they would have no choice but to intervene to save my life. Knowing that my husband and I were Christians, the doctor said, 'for those with no faith the answer is easy, you terminate.' It being a Friday afternoon he gave us the weekend to decide.

  • The National Secular Society has joined calls for a public inquiry into the funding of Islamist extremism in Britain after a damning investigation by a prominent think tank.

    In a report published yesterday, the Henry Jackson Society said there was "a growing body of evidence" that foreign funding was contributing to terrorism in Britain and other western countries. It said the money comes mainly from governments and state-backed foundations in the Gulf and Iran.

    It claimed Saudi Arabia was the chief foreign promoter of Islamist extremism in the UK. It said the Kingdom has promoted Wahhabi Islam "across the Islamic world, including to Muslim communities in the West" since the 1960s. It added that Saudi Arabia has spent at least £67 billion over the last 30 years in this endeavour.

  • A recent survey has shown sharply shifting attitudes to sexual morality among British Christians: 73 per cent of Anglicans don't think premarital sex is wrong, and 55 per cent don't think gay sex is wrong.

    The study of 3,000 people by the British Social Attitudes survey suggests a shrinking minority who favour a conservative view on sexual morality.

    The liberalising tendency may be most strong in the Church: British acceptance of same-sex relationships has quickly increased in the past four years, especially among Christians, the study found.

  • The National Secular Society has backed calls from abuse survivors for Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, to face police investigation over his role in the cover-up of sexual abuse in the Church of England.

    In a letter to The Times, survivors of abuse by Bishop Peter Ball, and lawyers representing many of Ball's survivors, say police must investigate whether Carey's deliberate concealment of evidence constitutes a criminal offence.

    Lord Carey also faces calls to forfeit his right to sit in the House of Lords. "It is unacceptable that someone who was involved in concealing evidence of criminality should have a role in making laws for others", says the letter.

  • Liberal attitudes to sex and morality are now beginning to dominate the way most people think, an influential report said yesterday.

    It found that those who believe sex should be saved for marriage and who oppose same-sex relationships are a shrinking minority.

    Even most Christians, historically the biggest religious group holding conservative views about sex, now believe there is nothing wrong with sex between unmarried people.

  • As well as seeking to persuade the Church of England to ban conversion therapy for those with same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria Jayne Ozanne is now highlighting the issue of spiritual abuse as the next big issue which she thinks the Church will need to tackle.

    Her paper on this issue, entitled 'Spiritual abuse – the next great scandal for the Church,'[1] which was written for the Royal College of Psychiatrists, starts with a general definition of spiritual abuse, then narrows down to focus on abuse by charismatic groups and then narrows down still further to consider the spiritual abuse of LGBTI Christians.

    No one with a proper belief in the way in which sin continues to indwell believers (see Articles IX and XV), or any experience of the life of the Church, will need any convincing about the possibility of those in the Church, including church leaders, misusing their position in the Church in a way that results in harm to others.

  • An orthodox Jewish school has failed three Ofsted inspections because it refuses to endorse homosexuality and transsexualism, it has emerged.

    The Telegraph reports that Vishnitz Girls School, a private school in Hackney, North London, has consistently been marked down by Ofsted for declining to give pupils a full understanding of 'British values'. This is despite the fact that the school performs well in other areas.

    Over the last two years, Ofsted has faced serious criticism for its British values drive, which some feel is used to punish schools with a religious designation.

  • The LGBT Agenda is pitched by its ideological supporters as an expansion of civil rights, but it becomes increasingly clear that in reality it provides a tool for spiteful sodomites to harass and vilify their real or perceived opponents. The question is whether that is not the true intention.

    The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to hear an appeal from a Colorado baker who disagreed with the notion of same-sex "marriage" who had lost a discrimination case for refusing to create a cake to celebrate such an aberration.

    The case will be a major test of a conflict of laws that limit the right of businesses open to the public to freely decide with whom they want, or do not want, to conclude contracts, or to negotiate the terms of a contract. Around the nation, businesses like bakeries, florists and photography studios have said, so far with little success, that being forced to contribute to the glorification of sodomy violates their constitutional rights.
