Beginning in the 1960s, a lot of Americans began trying to drive God out of our society — out of our schools, out of the media, out of our government institutions and the public square. Could these be some of the results?
 
SMALL TOWN MURDER RATE SURGES – A new FBI report notes an alarming new trend, an “18.3 percent jump in murder in cities with populations of less than 10,000.”
 
AMERICAN FAMILY SEES PLUNGING NET WORTH — A new Fed report notes devastating financial news for American families. “The net worth of the American family has fallen to its lowest level in two decades, according to government data released Monday, driven by a more than 40 percent drop in their stakes in their homes,” reports the Washington Post. “The Federal Reserve’s detailed survey of consumer finances showed families’ median wealth plunged from $126,400 in 2007 to $77,300 in 2010 — a 39 percent decline.

After a one-day trial, the Commission ordered in April 2008 that the Huguenins pay more than $6,000 in costs.  On Monday the New Mexico Court of Appeals upheld the ruling by the Commission that the Huguenins were guilty of "sexual orientation" discrimination under state anti-discrimination laws.
