IMAGE: Catholic News ServiceBy David AgrenCIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (CNS) -- WhenFather Alberto Melendez began ministering at the prison in this once-violentborder city nine years ago, rival gangs ran criminal operations from behindbars. Riots broke out regularly; a 2009 tragedy claimed 20 lives."There was no system ofcontrol inside," Father Melendez recalled. Inmates "were the onesgiving the orders."Pope Francis will visit theprison, known as Cereso No. 3, during a day trip Feb. 17 to Ciudad Juarez,which borders El Paso, Texas, and once held the dubious distinction of murdercapital of the world.

London, England, Feb 3, 2016 / 03:47 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Peter Tatchell is a passionate human rights campaigner who outwardly voices his support of same-sex marriage and LGBT issues.In 2014, he proclaimed his condemnation against Ashers Bakery in Belfast, Ireland, which was found guilty of “discrimination” because a pair of Christian bakers refused to ice a cake that would read “Support Gay Marriage.”But now, two years later, Tatchell has halted his previous claims against Ashers Bakery, saying his change of heart has been motivated by the defense of freedom.“Much as I wish to defend the gay community, I also want to defend freedom of conscience, expression and religion,” Tatchell wrote in The Guardian Feb. 1, saying “the court was wrong to penalize Ashers and I was wrong to endorse its decision.”The court found Ashers Bakery guilty of discrimination in 2014 when the bakers denied Gareth Lee's order for a pro-gay marriage cake.

Other groups joining the brief include the National Association of Evangelicals, the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. The case is Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt, currently before the U.S. Supreme Court."There is ample evidence in this case that hospital admitting privileges and ambulatory surgical center requirements protect women's lives and health," said the brief. "When such requirements are not enforced, abuses detrimental to women's lives and health arise."The brief noted that some abortion clinics have decla...
