Another Cultural Warfare Update

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]britzkrieg)

Here's today's cultural warfare update from [info]solarbird. Topics include:

* Decision against divorced Wiccan couple upheld by higher court. Both want to raise their son in their faith, but a lower court ordered in the divorce decree not to "expose" their child to their religious beliefs because that might "confuse" him since he goes to a Catholic school. An appeal is in process to the Indiana Court of Appeals.

* Focus on the Family calls the end-of-term Ten Commandments decisions "dangerous."

* Focus on the Family complains about CDC school survey about sexual activity.

* Focus on the Family report on "threats to religious liberty" -- including marriage rights, abortion rights, and "secularism in culture."

* "Christian" groups plan to install 100 Texas-like Ten Commandments displays in cities across the country, in reaction to the recent Supreme Court rulings.

* Concerned Women for America blacks the new GBLT-themed television cable channel LOGO as an "assault on children."

* The Traditional Values Coalition attacks the latest Supreme Court decisions as "attack[s] on religious freedom."

She also includes the following update on Love in Action from Focus on the Family's webfeed:

"A teen who was reluctantly attending Love in Action's Tennessee campus created a firestorm when he complained publicly of his treatment. The state's Department of Children Services has now investigated, and says his complaints of abuse are groundless. Love in Action director John Smid says the uproar could be God's way of letting people know about the programme. 'I really see it as God's economy of advertising. The publicity and the picketing and the news articles have all spread the news of Love in Action to many, many more people that have never heard of us before.' Love in Action is a Christ-centered ministry that helps free people from homosexuality."

I hope you all find this informative.
