There are several stories that are out today regarding various subjects. I am going to list a few below in case you haven't seen them.
The really good news for today, according to an ABC News story, is that Representative Gabrielle Giffords plans to attend the shuttle launch next month of her astronaut husband, Mark Kelly. Giffords survived a gunshot wound to the head after an alleged assassination attempt in January.
From EWTN/CNA comes this report that "The House of Representatives has determined that its legal counsel will support the Defense of Marriage Act against legal challenges, following the Obama administration's announcement that it now regards the law as unconstitutional."
Also from EWTN News is this "The United State Supreme Court has let stand an appellate court decision declaring that the national motto (“In God We Trust”) is constitutional."
It seems that the Vatican Information Service may be having "technical issues" with it's English language feed of the VIS News today, so you can go here to the "Pope Benedict XVI" blog to get todays English language version of VIS News.
Today, Asia News reports "The Grand Imam from the Islamic University of Al - Azhar, Sheikh Ahmad al-Tayyib, condemns the attack on the Coptic Church of Soul, which took place on 5 March. In a press release, the Islamic leader has called the action a "distortion of Islam" and called on the Muslim community to rebuild the village church to defuse the climate of tension and violence between Copts and Muslims."
