Washington D.C., Jan 18, 2016 / 01:39 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Martin Luther King Day is a time to promote racial harmony in America and honor the slain civil rights leader who was “inspired by the teachings of Christ,” says the head of the Knights of Peter Claver.“Considering that so many 'church-going folks' were supporting segregation and Jim Crow laws during the civil rights movement, it is wonderful that King dedicated his life to employing Christ's teachings to resist and counter the very social sins of prejudice, racial discrimination and segregation,” Supreme Knight F. DeKarlos Blackmon told CNA.He said Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. a Baptist minister, was “a man of faith and deep conviction” who studied Catholic theology and was “particularly impressed” with St. Augustine.King’s famous “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” cited St. Augustine's saying “An unjust law is no law at all.”Since 20...

We are incredibly grateful to the more than 1.1 million people who have joined us in fighting across the globe for Pastor Saeed’s freedom,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), in a Jan. 16 statement.The ACLJ had for years been advocating for Pastor Abedini’s freedom from Iran by organizing prayer vigils, collecting signatures for petitions, and sending letters to the United Nations and Congress. Born and raised as a Muslim in Iran, Abedini converted to Christianity in 2000, becoming an American citizen in 2010 following his marriage to his wife...
New York City, N.Y., Jan 18, 2016 / 10:21 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Cardinal Timothy Dolan has marked the upcoming anniversary of Roe v. Wade with a reflection encouraging the pro-life movement to remember the importance of mercy and to see the opportunity to reach those who do not identify as pro-life.The Archbishop of New York said the pro-life cause backs “an essential moral vision that lifts up every human person.”“Genuine progress must be progress for all, beginning with those most vulnerable who cannot speak for themselves,” he said in a Jan. 14 message. “May God bless our efforts to uphold human life!”The cardinal cited Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation Evangelii gaudium. There, the Pope said the defense of the unborn is “closely linked to the defense of each and every other human right … It is not ‘progressive’ to try to resolve problems by eliminating a human life.”Cardinal Dolan heads the U.S. bishops&rs...
 The debate over new rules aimed at regulating religious bodies in Kenya continues. The Religious Societies Rules which will affect all faiths require clerics and religious leaders to submit certificates of good conduct and their training in theology, among others. In a statement read to the press on Tuesday, the catholic bishops of Kenya expressed concern over the new rules saying they will violate freedom of worship guaranteed under Kenya’s constitution.The bishops also lament that the church was not consulted during the formulation of the regulations which they say contain unrealistic and unsustainable requirements.At the press briefing, the chairman of the Bishops’ Rt. Rev Philip Anyolo stressed that the work of winning souls for Christ is an ongoing task.The bishop therefore called on the government to consult widely before implementing the regulations so that they can serve the intended purpose of stopping rogue preachers and those radicalizing their followe...
 WASHINGTON-Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York called on everyone "concerned about the tragedy of abortion" to recommit to a "vision of life and love, a vision that excludes no one" on January 14. His statement marks the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. Cardinal Dolan chairs the Committee on Pro-Life Activities of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops."Most Americans oppose a policy allowing legal abortion for virtually any reason - though many still do not realize that this is what the Supreme Court gave us," wrote Cardinal Dolan. "Most want to protect unborn children at later stages of pregnancy, to regulate or limit the practice of abortion, and to stop the use of taxpayer dollars for the destruction of unborn children. Yet many who support important goals of the pro-life movement do not identify as 'pro-life,' a fact which should lead us to examine how we present our pro-life vision to others.""Even as Americans rema...
