WILLS POINT, Texas -- As the world "goes blue" today to mark World Children's Day (Nov. 20) GFA (Gospel for Asia, www.gfa.org) is bringing attention to another color in its efforts to improve the lives of children at risk-the red line of poverty.

The organization spotlights the desperate plight of the near-770 million people around the world-many of them children-who live below the $1.90-a-day extreme poverty line, in a major new report on the importance of education in helping alleviate poverty.

When baker Jack Phillips won his Supreme Court case this year, it was hugely important to religious liberty -- and, it turns out, a whole lot more.

Standing by his convictions wasn't always easy for Jack. He lost a big chunk of business and years of his life to the lawsuit brought by a same-sex couple. "And then there was the hate mail, nasty phone calls, and death threats pouring in," Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) points out. While the real-life drama played out in courtrooms across Colorado and D.C., the entire country watched -- including Jack's nephew, Sean.

Imagine how upset you'd be to find out that your tax dollars were funding radical sexual propaganda targeted at your kids. Well, thanks to Planned Parenthood, you already are. Apparently, the nation's biggest abortion business isn't content with destroying innocent lives anymore. Now it wants to undermine your moral values too.

WASHINGTON -- Yesterday, the American Law and Justice Center (ACLJ) published a petition to release John Cao, a U.S. pastor imprisoned in China on fabricated organizing illegal border crossing charges.

Cao, whose family resides in North Carolina, was arrested by Chinese officials in March 2017 as he crossed the border between Myanmar and China. He was charged with "organizing illegal border crossings" and sentenced to seven years in prison earlier this year. As a missionary renowned for providing education for more than 2,000 impoverished children in Myanmar, Cao often made this journey with no previous incident, indicating that officials framed him with the charge as part of their wider crackdown on Chinese Christians.

ADF attorneys representing Ratio Christi challenge policy limiting students' free speech, association.

INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. -- Ratio Christi Campus Apologetics Alliance's chapter at University of Colorado, Colorado Springs filed a federal lawsuit yesterday against the University for forcing the group to accept members that don't support the group's purpose and officers that don't share the group's beliefs. The university refused to grant Ratio Christi registered status because it only allows those who share and personally hold beliefs consistent with the group's mission to serve as its leaders.
