A group of 20 suspected vandals have trashed a pro-life display at DePaul University in Chicago, Ill., the nation's largest Catholic university. A campus conservative group says it's another sign that "conservatives are being silenced everyday."

"They had been thrown and stuffed into various trash cans outside the library," Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) spokesman Kate Edwards told Fox News on Thursday. "If this happens on the largest Catholic university campus in our nation – it can happen anywhere."

Persecuted Early Church Father the Subject of Newly-Announced Feature Film

CINCINNATI, Ohio, Jan. 24, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- 'Polycarp: Destroyer of Gods' has been announced as the next film project from Joe and Jerica Henline, an award-winning brother and sister filmmaking team. 'Polycarp' will be their first feature and the first film made under the banner of Henline Productions, formerly J&J Productions. Joe will direct and Jerica will write the screenplay.

The full-length feature film, based on a novel authored by Pastor Rick Lambert, will depict the story of second century church father, Polycarp, the bishop of Smyrna, who faced severe persecution at the hand of Roman oppressors. Joe and Jerica's father and also the film's executive producer, Jerry Henline, says, "We are seeking to use the medium of film to inspire today's generation to stand for their faith against all opposition."

Joe (age 17) and Jerica (age 19) were the filmmakers behind last year's 'Lady Jane Grey,' a short film that earned them the Best Young Filmmaker award at the 2012 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, Best Young Filmmaker at the GloryReelz Christian Film Festival, Golden Crown Award (Best Student Production) at the International Christian Visual Media Festival, Best Young Filmmaker at The Attic Film Festival, and finalist nominees in multiple categories at others. The Henlines are assembling a professional film crew with experience in a variety of independent Christian films. "The pieces are falling into place," says Jerry Henline, "and we are excited about the team that is working with us to produce a film with excellence and for the glory of God."

Like most independent films, 'Polycarp' will be made with the combined efforts of many talented actors and crew members. Films on this scale are made possible only by prayer and financial support from people who strongly believe in the film's mission.

Information about the production and release of 'Polycarp: Destroyer of Gods' will be announced at the website of Henline Productions.

God at work: transforming tragedy into testimony

It wasn't a good day.
Pastor Peter Conforti and the members of Full Gospel Church (AG) of Island Park, New York, were left shocked, speechless - struck to the core. When Hurricane Sandy hit the Northeast late in October 2012, damage was expected . . . , but this. This was much more than anyone imagined.
With many of his congregants from the hard-hit areas of Island Park and Long Beach, Pastor Conforti suddenly found his church of 250 had almost instantly dwindled to 60 as some members had their homes totally destroyed or made at least temporarily uninhabitable. And unknown to them at the time, the area would mostly be without power - with the exception of generators - for the next three weeks or more.
