TEN COMMANDMENTS FORBIDDEN AGAIN. A federal judge ruled in July that Dixie County (a rural county in Florida) has 30 days to remove a granite monument of the Ten Commandments from the steps of the county courthouse in Cross City, where it has sat since 2006. Of course, this was the result of a suit by the ACLU, charging that the monument is a violation of separation of church and state. Dixie County officials said there never has been a single negative comment about the monument from anyone living in the community. The Ledger.com, 7-18-11.

Headline speakers will include Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, and Phyllis Schlafly, president and founder of Eagle Forum. Saturday will feature in-depth sessions on integrating the latest technologies into winning campaigns, the Republican presidential nominating process, school tax and bond elections, effective pro-life legislation, preeminence of American law, Agenda 21, Voter Registration Reform, and saving the Electoral College.
The Fulltime Homemaker Award, to recognize the high value of motherhood and personal sacrifice, will be presented on Saturday evening to Teiro Cuccinelli, wife of Ken Cuccinelli.
"Eagle Councils are always a combination of informative speeches and training to build effective citizen activists," said Schlafly. "The Council will present an opportunity to learn from specialists in campaign technology and strategy, volunteer lobbying on specific pro-family issues, and use of the internet and social networking websites."
Eagle Forum, a national conservative pro-family organization of volunteers, was founded in 1972 in St. Louis. It has about 80,000 members nationwide, with chapters in every state and offices in Washington, D.C., St. Louis, Missouri, and Alton, Illinois. Eagle Forum trains its members to participate in the public policymaking function, especially in education, foreign policy, and constitutional issues.
The media are absorbed with the race for the Republican presidential nomination, commenting on daily fluctuations in the polls, and predicting who will win. But why are they omitting discussion of the elephant in the room — China?

KOMEN FOR THE CURE AFFILIATES GAVE OVER $569,000 TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD. A study by the American Life League reveals that Komen for the Cure foundation, a breast cancer charity, has 18 affiliates that gave over $569,000 to Planned Parenthood in 2010. A 2008 Annual Report from Planned Parenthood shows its breast cancer services decreased by 4% and abortion procedures increased by 6%. Komen affiliates contributed about $3.3 million to Planned Parenthood from 2004-2009. Several Catholic Bishops have instructed churches and schools they oversee not to fundraise for Komen for the Cure because of its ties to Planned Parenthood; the latest includes Bishop Frederick F. Campbell of Columbus, Ohio. Lifenews.com, 8-25-11.
