    Buzzfeed (includes text of memo): Oregon Chief Operating Officer and Director of Administrative Services Michael Jordan issued a memo to state agencies Wednesday ordering the recognition of all legal marriages performed outside of the state — including the marriages of same-sex couples. “Oregon agencies must recognize all out-of-state marriages for the purposes of administering state programs,” Jordan states in the memo. “That includes legal, same sex marriages performed in other states and countries.” (includes video): “Same-sex marriage decision leaves Oregon in an ironic spot”

The war on Christians: The global persecution of Christians is the unreported catastrophe of our time

    John L. Allen, Jr. at The Spectator: According to the Pew Forum, between 2006 and 2010 Christians faced some form of discrimination, either de jure or de facto, in a staggering total of 139 nations, which is almost three-quarters of all the countries on earth. According to the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts, an average of 100,000 Christians have been killed in what the centre calls a ‘situation of witness’ each year for the past decade. That works out to 11 Christians killed somewhere in the world every hour, seven days a week and 365 days a year, for reasons related to their faith. In effect, the world is witnessing the rise of an entire new generation of Christian martyrs. The carnage is occurring on such a vast scale that it represents not only the most dramatic Christian story of our time, but arguably the premier human rights challenge of this era as well.
