Churches Worldwide Remember Holocaust Victims

A record number of churches in Europe are expected to commemorate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day this Sunday.

Organizers hope a thousand churches will pause to remember the 6 million Jews, and untold millions of other Europeans, killed by the Nazis during World War II.

The European director of Youth with a Mission says "the Holocaust commemoration remains a crucial reminder of what can happen in Europe when we stray from our Judeo-Christian foundations."

Christians Mark Another "March for Life"

This week marked the 35th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. The march began after the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, which legalized abortion in America.

Christians from around the country are the backbone of the annual event. More young people are joining the march every year. Many see themselves as survivors of the abortion era.

This year marked the first decrease in abortions in the U.S. since 1973.

E-mail Leaves Obama Defending His Faith

A leading Democratic candidate in the U.S. presidential election is fighting off rumors he's a Muslim.

Sen. Barak Obama is setting the record straight after e-mails began circulating offering "proof" that he believes in Islam.

Obama says he's a Christian, that he's been a member of a church for 20 years, and that he was sworn in to the Senate with a Bible.

"I think that those who are of the Muslim faith are deserving of respect and dignity, but to try and feed into this fear-mongering and try to question my faith commitments and my belief in Jesus Christ, I think is offensive," Obama said.

He wants everyone who gets one of the e-mails to delete it, and tell whoever sent it that it's not true.

S. Korean Church Breaks Ground on Hospital

A Christian church in Seoul, South Korea is building a hospital in the capital of the Communist north.

Last month, Pastor David Yonggi Cho of Yoido Full Gospel Church broke ground on the hospital that will bear his name.

Members of North Korea's government-sanctioned churches are helping build the 260-room facility that will specialize in cardiac health in Pyongyang.

The hospital will also have a chapel for patients and their families.
