This isn't the USA of a 1970s rock album.
A pregnant member of the Satanic Temple is suing the Texas Department of Health Services for violating her First Amendment and Equal Protection rights to a “Satanic Abortion Ritual.” Texas law requires a medically unnecessary ultrasound be performed 24 hours before an abortion.

It’s time for Genesis 46 with Hemant— no barf bag necessary.
Finally, this is a real image from a recent megachurch service. Can you figure out what’s going on?
