A New York school district has decided to approve a student's proposal to start a Christian club at her high school called "Dare to Believe" after she was initially told that her student organization would be a possible violation of the U.S. constitution.
In September, student Liz Loverde met with Wantagh Principal Carolyn Breivogel about the possibility of starting a Christian club called Dare to Believe. Reportedly, Breivogel rejected the student club idea under the assumption that having a Christian student organization recognized would violate the U.S. Constitution.
In response to the rejection from Wantagh High School of the Wantagh Union Free School District, Loverde and her family contacted the Plano, Texas-based Liberty Institute, which sent a letter to the principal last Monday, as well as to other school district officials alerting them that they were violating the Equal Access Act of 1984 for denying her request. more >>

Although Gallup polling from May indicates that American public opinion strongly favors legally recognizing same-sex marriage, 2014 midterm election exit polls found that voters were evenly divided on the issue of gay marriage.
According to NBC exit polling results, just 48 percent of those who voted in November's elections said they think same-sex marriage should be legally recognized in their home state, while the same amount of voters said they are opposed to legally recognizing gay marriage in their state.
The numbers show a significant decline in the percentage of Americans that support same-sex marriage, as compared to the results from a Gallup poll in May that found 55 percent of Americans feel that same-sex marriage should be "valid" and just 42 percent thought that same-sex marriage "should not be valid." more >>
Many have heard the story and imagined how things took place. Others may have been involved in such a situation where debt was owed, and they had been helped. But, being forgiven and not forgiving someone for committing the same act is just NOT fair.
Seeing it acted out in modern times is very humbling. It may even help someone with making a decision in a similar situation. We are all human and we all make mistakes. There is not a better feeling in the world than being forgiven for something bad that you did. It is also important that we forgive others who encounter the same problem, and most of all, forgive ourselves. Forgive as God forgave you.
Be sure to pass this humbling video of the unforgiving servant with all those who are in need! more >>
Governor Jay Nixon announced Tuesday that additional National Guard troops would enter Ferguson, Missouri following criticism against him from the Lieutenant Governor after a night of violence and protests in the St. Louis suburb.

Nixon declared a state of emergency and activated National Guard units on Nov. 16, but Missouri's Republican lieutenant governor Peter Kinder criticized the Democratic leader for a lack of National Guard officers deployed in Ferguson on Monday night.
