Over 2,000 aborted babies buried

The remains of 2,411 aborted babies, which were found in abortionist Ulrich "George" Klopfer’s home and car, were laid to rest at an Indiana cemetery this week.

"Each of these 2,411 was a life — a life that was terminated — and each deserves to be secure in a final resting place, with dignity and respect, as should be afforded all human beings.” — Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill

The remains had been discovered in plastic bags after Klopfer, who performed tens of thousands of abortions, died last year.

New conservative network launched amid ‘woke’ trend in Southern Baptist Convention

A group of Southern Baptists launched the Conservative Baptist Network amid growing concern that the denomination is increasingly "woke" and drifting from biblical orthodoxy.

CBN is not a new denomination but an effort to restore the SBC’s emphasis on evangelism and the sufficiency of Scripture.

“I want our pastors to know that we champion the position that the Bible is enough. We want to make sure that anything we say about the Bible, that we hold the Bible in its proper esteem as not only the Word of God but enough to handle all the issues of life.” — Lee Brand, dean of Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary

A U.S. Air Force base in Illinois was forced to remove a commander’s name from a prayer breakfast invitation after a secular organization complained.

The invitation was edited to no longer show the commander’s name.
