UK government says that the church will be powerless to stop homosexual marriage. According to The Telegraph, a long-awaited official paper on same-sex marriage makes clear that the Church will be powerless to stop the change even if it mobilises hundreds of thousands of objections. The Government's national consultation document, asks the public whether they "agree or disagree" with allowing homosexual couples to have civil weddings. But it makes clear that, while the question is posed in principle, it is a matter of "how not whether" the change is introduced. Opponents of the move immediately accused the Government of holding a "sham" consultation" in which opposition would be "ignored."

The Bible says in 2 Timothy 4:4, "And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."

Iran says Israel isn't powerful enough to fulfill military threats. According to Haaretz, during a visit to southern Lebanon, Ahmadinejad's press adviser said Israel is too weak to fulfill its threats against Iran. He also stated that a possible Iranian counterstrike would reach beyond the 'Zionist regime' and include U.S. bases.

Most Israelis don't want Israel to strike Iran alone. According to Haaretz, polls published last week show that most of the Israeli public supports a U.S. strike on Iran, but is wary of sending Israeli Defense Forces to do the task without the backing of the friendly superpower. However, in his speech before the Knesset on Wednesday, Netanyahu urged his colleagues to reject claims that Israel is too weak to go it alone in a war against a regional power such as Iran and therefore needs to rely on the United States, which has much greater military capabilities, to do the job and remove the threat.
