Question of the Day
The Rev. Tom Brock told the Associated Press on Monday that he has known for many years that he is attracted to men. He said he is still a virgin at age 57 and doesn’t consider himself gay because he hasn’t acted on his attraction.
Mr. Brock’s sexuality became an issue after a gay magazine reported on his membership in a support group for Christians battling same-sex attraction. He was put on leave while a task force at Hope Lutheran Church looked into the matter.
Hope Lutheran’s executive pastor said the task force found Mr. Brock credible, and he was back in the pulpit on Sunday.
Court: Prison can ban Muslim scarf
PHILADELPHIA | A U.S. appeals court in Philadelphia said prison officials can ban employees from wearing Muslim head scarves out of safety concerns.
The judges said the case is a close call. But they said prison officials have legitimate concerns the head scarves can hide contraband or be used by an inmate to choke someone.
The 2-1 decision is a defeat for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
The commission thinks the three Muslim women employed at the Delaware County Prison in Thornton had to compromise their religious beliefs to keep their jobs.
Monday’s ruling upholds a district judge who dismissed the EEOC lawsuit.
The suit was filed against the Geo Group, a Boca Raton, Fla.-based contractor that operated the prison.
Bernanke: Economy still short of full recovery
CHARLESTON | The U.S. economy is improving but has yet to recover fully, with high unemployment and a weak housing market leaving consumers unsettled, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said Monday.
This means U.S. monetary policy must remain accommodative until the economic recovery is on a sustainable path and job creation picks up, he said.
