Christians all over the world are being persecuted by Muslims for their beliefs, and we hardly hear about it because it isn't politically correct in America to portray Muslims as anything but "peaceful." Here are some stories from the past week, however, that pick up on these atrocities. Take a look and pass them on:

The NEA has launched a new site as a resource for teachers to help children cope with September 11: "Remember September 11." In it, the NEA "cautions teachers not to "suggest any group is responsible for the terrorist hijackings that killed more than 3,000 people." And one of the lesson plans "takes a decidedly blame-America approach, urging educators to 'discuss historical instances of American intolerance,' so that the American public avoids 'repeating terrible mistakes.' "" Yet another reason to homeschool.

This is a good op-ed in praise of a new statute in Florida, which requires mothers to make a reasonable effort to contact their child's father before putting the child up for adoption. Apparently NOW and FAAP (Florida Association of Adoption Professionals) are vehemently opposed to this law because of the embarrassment it would bring to the mothers. NOW, FAAP: Surely, you jest.

Why do we make our military intelligence commercially available?

Yesterday, The New York Times published an article, "American Arsenal in the Mideast Is Being Built Up to Confront Saddam Hussein," with a satellite image of a U.S. air base in Al Udeid, Qatar, including the location of the fuel storage area (with one million gallons of fuel), the munitions storage area, the command post ("with a new faceted roof design to make it more difficult to see from above or detect by radar"), and the length of its runways (about 12,000').
