Idaho ministers face arrest, jail for refusing to perform same-sex weddings – Spokane Conservative | Examiner.com

Donald and Evelyn Knapp, two Christian ministers who have owned and operated the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, for 25 years, now face arrest and possible jail time for refusing to perform same-sex weddings, Fox News’ Todd Starnes reported Saturday. According to Starnes, the two were told by the city they must either perform the ceremonies or face up to 180 days in jail and $1,000 per day in fines.

“Worse,” said a lawsuit filed Friday by the Alliance Defending Freedom, “each day the Knapps decline to perform a requested same-sex wedding ceremony, they commit a separate and distinct misdemeanor, subject to the same penalties.” If the two refuse to perform ceremonies in just one week, they could accrue up to three years in jail and $7,000 in fines, the complaint adds.

CDC speaks on enterovirus link to illegal-alien kids

“In previous years, it has not been as commonly identified as other enteroviruses,” CDC said. “This year’s increase in confirmed cases is not due to a recent introduction in the United States.”However, evidence buried in peer-reviewed medical journals provides support for the argument enterovirus D-68, or EV-D68, in the United States was a relatively rare disease. The EV-D68 epidemic occurred only after the surge this year of unaccompanied alien children illegally crossing the border from Latin America, a region where the virus is more prevalent among young children.The CDC records nearly 700 people who have been diagnosed with the virus this year. Five children have died while infected.

Obama Has An Ebola Czar. She Re-Directed Federal Research Money to a Democrat Donor

You may be wondering why Barack Obama, with his propensity to name “czars” for every problem that ails us, has not named an Ebola Czar.The reason is because he has, in fact, named an Ebola Czar. So why are we constantly seeing Dr. Tom Frieden of the CDC embarrass himself in press conferences instead of our Ebola Czar? Mollie Hemingway has the details. It turns out Dr. Nicole Lurie, the czar in charge of potential infectious disease catastrophes, has made the most of her time by funneling federal dollars to Democratic donors.

Houston’s First Lesbian Mayor DEMANDS to see ALL Sermons from Christian Pastors – The Political Insider

Houston mayor, Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor, is conducting a litigious witch-hunt against religious leaders, issuing subpoenas that demand the sermons of pastors who may have spoken on the topic of homosexuality, gender identity, or Parker herself. Pastors who do not comply may be held in contempt of court.

The actions taken by Parker and her administration are a clear affront to freedom of speech, an assault on the concept of separation of church and state, and constitute one of the more alarming attempts to stop opposing political or cultural viewpoints in their tracks.

Common Core Math Problem: How to Subtract 293 from 568 in Just 10 Steps! With Picture | PUNDIT PRESS

First, you would take the 200 out of the 293, and save the 93 for later. Then you would take 568 and subtract 200 from it. Then you’d take the remaining 368 and you would subtract 60 from it, because you are taught that, for some reason, you cannot simply subtract 90 from 368. 368-60 equals 308. Then you subtract 30 from 308 because, again, for some reason 368-90 doesn’t exist. 308-30 equals 278. Then you take the three that is left over from 293-290, because you already subtracted 200, 60, and 30 from 293 to get three, and you minus that 3 from the remaining 278 that you got from subtracting 290 from 568. Still following? Good, because one you minus 3 from 278, you get the answer of 275! Then, you double check your answer by adding up 200 + 60 + 30 + 3 to get 293, which is the number you subtracted from 568. Much, much more complicated than the other two methods and an over-complification of a simple problem. More than that, the way to figure out this problem is literally more than the other two methods combined.

Obama has had accurate intelligence about ISIS since BEFORE the 2012 election, says administration insider | Daily Mail Online

President Barack Obama’s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday.

‘Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president’s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,’ said a national security staffer in the Obama administration who is familiar with the content of intelligence briefings.
