628-639 – • Fox News (3/2/2011) Westboro Funeral Pickets Are Protected Speech, High Court Rules.

The Supreme Court, in an 8-1 decision, ruled Wednesday that members of the renegade Westboro Baptist Church have a constitutionally protected right to protest military funerals even though their demonstrations are widely despised and deplored. 

The case presented the justices with a high-profile question about the breadth of First Amendment speech and assembly protections. A majority of justices ruled that these fundamental rights outweigh the concerns of grieving family members who would rather not deal with what they say are obnoxious protesters from the Kansas church.

• Fox News (3/2/2011) Pope Benedict Exonerates Jews for Jesus' Death in New Book.

// In "Jesus of Nazareth-Part II" excerpts released Wednesday, Benedict explains biblically and theologically why there is no basis in Scripture for the argument that the Jewish people as a whole were responsible for Jesus' death.

// The Catholic Church issued its most authoritative teaching on the issue in its 1965 Second Vatican Council document "Nostra Aetate," which revolutionized the church's relations with Jews by saying Christ's death could not be attributed to Jews as a whole at the time or today.

Benedict comes to the same conclusion, but he explains how with a thorough, Gospel-by-Gospel analysis that leaves little doubt that he deeply and personally believes it to be the case: That only a few Temple leaders and a small group of supporters were primarily responsible for Christ's crucifixion.

// "How could the whole people have been present at this moment to clamor for Jesus' death?" Benedict asks.

He deconstructs one particular biblical account which has the crowd saying, "His blood be on us and on our children" -- a phrase frequently cited as evidence of the collective guilt Jews bore and the curse that they carried as a result.

The phrase, from the Gospel of Matthew, has been so incendiary that director Mel Gibson was reportedly forced to drop it from the subtitles of his 2004 film "The Passion of the Christ," although it remained in the spoken Aramaic.

But Benedict said Jesus' death wasn't about punishment, but rather salvation. Jesus' blood, he said, "does not cry out for vengeance and punishment, it brings reconciliation. It is not poured out against anyone, it is poured out for many, for all."

• UK The Telegraph (2/25/2011) Jane Williams: Christians should stand up for their beliefs.

644-656 – • UK The Telegraph (3/1/2011) 'Our Christianity is our lifestyle – we can't take it on and off'.  The couple stopped by a court from fostering children tell Cassandra Jardine of their sense of injustice.  Owen and Eunice Johns have raised four children, and have had dozens of children stay with them over the years, but now the court is stopping them from being carers in the foster care system because they won't endorse homosexuality.

// Yesterday, two High Court judges upheld the decision of Derby City Council not to approve the Johns family as carers. There were no objections to them saying grace before meals or taking foster children to church on Sunday. The sticking point was their answer to the question: "Would you tell a child it was OK to be homosexual?" The Johns replied that they would not. They would love a child regardless, but not endorse that lifestyle. //

// The problem? Their views, they learnt, had disbarred them from caring for other people's children under the 2007 Equalities and Sexual Orientation regulations. As interpreted by Derbyshire social workers, and now the law courts, this means that they have to endorse homosexuality. "I worked with homosexuals as a nurse and it was never a problem," says Eunice. "The issue never arose with any of the children who came to stay with us. If it were to, I would ask social services for a professional to deal with it." //

// The new ruling has also met with approval from many Christians who don't share the Johns's views. "Christ himself said nothing about gay people," says Michael Arditti, a gay Christian and author of Lourdes, a novel that debates Christian versus secular values. "The only aspect of personal relationships that Christ consistently condemned was divorce. People who propagate hatred are directly responsible for the huge number of homophobic attacks which continue to blight the lives of ordinary people. We cannot stop such people injecting their poison in their own children, but we can stop them from doing so to other people's."
