  • The children's rights watchdog is to investigate reports that a five-year-old Christian girl was left distressed after being placed in foster care in two Muslim households in east London.

    The office of the children's commissioner for England, Anne Longfield, confirmed it would be contacting Tower Hamlets council to find out why the decision was made. The child has reportedly been in the care of a Muslim family for the past six months.

    The Times published an article on Monday after seeing confidential local authority reports, in which a social services supervisor describes the child sobbing and begging not to be returned to one foster carer because "they don't speak English".

  • A native English Christian girl has been placed in the care of two Muslim households in London where she was allegedly encouraged to learn Arabic and remove her Christian cross necklace.

  • It all happened in the course of one night, and it happened quite suddenly.

    Last Thursday night, I noticed that YouTube demonetized my interview with a former KKK Grand Dragon who is now an associate pastor in an African American church, claiming it was "Not suitable for all advertisers"? Why wouldn't it be? It was a great, positive, redemptive story, one that the whole world should hear. Why flag it?

    The demonetizing of this video was the first thing that got my attention, but I thought to myself, "It's probably because it has KKK in the title."

  • A retired vicar involved in a high-profile gay rights case has spoken with defiance about his lifelong campaign for same-sex marriage in the church.

    Neil Richardson, 71, was called to advise Gay News editor Denis Lemon in the last trial for blasphemous libel in this country at the Old Bailey in London.

    Lemon was the defendant after he published a poem in June 1976 called The Love that Dares to Speak its Name by James Kirkup.

  • Historical statues are being toppled in America; snarling, violent anti-fascists mirror the behaviour they are supposedly against; Britain's Conservative Government is to enforce hate-speech guidelines which are as contestable as they are subjective. As we watch western societies buckling under the bizarre combination of an apparently extreme concern to protect other people's feelings with an extreme attempt to suppress other people's opinions, many of us feel utter bewilderment. How can so many people who are ostensibly devoted to reason and freedom be behaving so irrationally and oppressively?

  • Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 6 v 9-11 offer a helpful way to answer this question:

    Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

  • Arlene Foster has said that the DUP will do "everything in its power" to resist calls from the UK to relax anti-abortion laws.

    The unionist party leader said that the DUP was coming under increasing pressure within British politics to lift Northern Ireland's strict rules on terminations. This follows a decision by the Westminster government to allow Northern Irish women to have abortions in England on the NHS. Stella Creasy, a Labour MP, has called for the costs of the women's flights to be covered as well.

  • The LGBT world is not happy about the world's reaction to KLM Royal Dutch Airlines' rainbow-colored seat belt Twitter ad.

    Gay news sites have posted articles with titles such as "People are mocking this airline for its 'rainbow seat belt' Pride advert" and "An Airline Posted A Pro-LGBTQ Message ... And Hecklers Stormed It."

    What is being described as "mocking," "heckling," and "homophobic" are simple statements of truth revealing how the ad actually promotes natural law and complementarity while simultaneously drawing a lot of attention to the deficient nature of same-sex sexual relationships.

  • Women's Health published a feature story Tuesday about a woman who claimed she wasn't prepared for the "ungodly mental anguish" she experienced after undergoing an abortion.

    Kassi Underwood, author of "May Cause Love: An Unexpected Journey of Enlightenment," wrote that she had dreamed about a joyful first pregnancy, but instead found herself paying for a $415 abortion. She recounted that at the time of the procedure she shook violently, and was overcome by a sense of both "elation and devastation."

    After completing the abortion, Underwood said she struggled to sleep and could not cleanse her mind of baby imagery.
