I wonder if the new Saudi Arabian leader will fix this problem?

At one point in this program we were told about the state sponsored religious education in Saudi Arabia. According to Frontline, "approximately 35% of school studies is devoted to compulsory Saudi religious education." [ /QUOTE]--http://tinyurl.com/27nj2k (Islam and Violence) Continued...
Answering-Islam wrote: One of these textbooks published in 2000, was a collection of prophet Muhammad's sayings, which was used by middle school students in Saudi Arabia. One lesson is entitled, "The Victory of Muslims Over Jews." According to a tradition from prophet Muhammad, "The last hour won't come before the Muslims would fight the Jews and the Muslims will kill them so Jews would hide behind rocks and tress. Then the rocks and trees would call: oh, Muslim, oh, servant of God! There is a Jew, behind me, come and kill him." Like a good textbook, the teachings of this saying are summarized in several prepositional statements such as:
It's fate decided by Allah that the Muslims and Jews will fight till the end of the world. This Hadith predicts for the Muslims God's victory over the Jews. Jews and Christians are the enemies of believers. They will never approve of the Muslims, beware of them.
One can get into trouble even if they aren't married.

Intervention is also permitted when noncustodial parents flee the State or country to avoid paying child support.
Since 2006, the Federal Government has convicted more than 500 deadbeat parents who failed to pay more than $33 million in child support payments.
Christendom has been dead for quite some time. Look at the dates giving an example

The polls donât confirm the great last-days revival touted on TBN but that todayâs boasted âchurch growthâ is largely a myth; 70-80% comes from transfers between churches. Absolute truth is rejected by 71% of Americans, 64% of âborn-agains,â and 40% of âevangelicals.â Most Presbyterians and Methodists and 88% of Roman Catholics active in their churches believe one enters heaven by being good enough. And 30% of âborn-againsâ deny the physical resurrection of Christ!

But the optimism is misplaced because it doesn't deal directly with the dearth of democracy in Zimbabwe.
First, contrary to popular sentiment that the coup was meant to usher in a new era of political liberalisation and democracy, the takeover is actually meant to deal with a succession crisis in ZANU-PF....

Increasing health-care coverage is one of the most powerful tools for reducing the number of abortions â a fact proved by years of experience in other industrialized nations. All the other advanced, free-market democracies provide health-care coverage for everybody. And all of them have lower rates of abortion than does the United States
...the lesson from every other rich democracy.
The latest United Nations comparative statistics, available atÂ http://data.un.org, [not as recent data as I would like Â http://tinyurl.com/ycxcq4b6Â ] demonstrate the point clearly. The U.N. data measure the number of abortions for women ages 15 to 44. They show that Canada, for example, has 15.2 abortions per 1,000 women; Denmark, 14.3; Germany, 7.8; Japan, 12.3; Britain, 17.0; and the United States, 20.8. When it comes to abortion rates in the developed world, weâre No. 1.

They promised that facile slogans like âfreedomâ and âchoiceâ would magically increase coverage and bring down costs. They were selling snake oil, and one way or the other, itâs going to come back and bite them.
We shouldnât make promises that we arenât going to be able to keep. âItâs not going to be easy to do,â Jacob Hacker says, âand anyone who tells you that the most expensive health-care system in the world [The American one ] is going to undergo a sudden shift to highly efficient and low-price medicine has not been studying American medicine.âÂ
Besides writing a book perhaps this Congressman should point out that the federal government does have programs for getting fathers to take out time for their children. I'm not sure if this is the same outfit that does the promos for that idea on television - - I know that is a government group, but I did find this on the internet: https://www.fatherhood.gov/
What this person says about Christmas has absolutely no relevance to the Catholic Church and he might even get reprimanded by his Bishop. Of course the main Bishop, the pope might agree with him?
Dan Callahan wrote: ... Within his own diocese a bishop is close to being a sovereign lord. He bears ultimate responsibility for the teaching of Church doctrine, the allocation of funds, the construction of buildings and churches, the assignment of clerical personnel, and the spiritual well-being of his people. Short of the Pope himself, there is no one who can challenge him for leadership or power....
America's most infamous white terrorist, died of natural causes instead of being executed.

Actually probably just about any Roman Catholic priest would have done for Mugabe:
Lovejoy Kupe wrote: He is a devout Catholic. Robert Gabriel Mugabe was born on 21 February 1924 at the Kutama Jesuit Mission in Zvimba District, about 80 miles from Harare, Zimbabwe. He grew up in a devoutly catholic family; his father, Gabriel Mugabe, was the carpenter at the Catholic mission, and his mother, Bona Mugabe was considered a deeply religious woman. Mugabe has maintained his relationship with the Catholic Church throughout his life...
