Opponents of a Massachusetts law allowing biological men to use women's bathrooms and locker rooms say they have obtained enough signatures to force a ballot referendum, which would give voters in the state the ability to decide if the law oversteps individual privacy rights.
In July, Massachusetts Republican Gov. Charlie Baker signed legislation into law that extended non-discrimination protections to transgender people statewide when it comes to the use of public accommodations like restrooms, locker rooms, showers and other public changing areas.
Opponents of the law, which will officially take effect on Saturday, argue that the new non-discrimination protections have effectively compromised public safety and privacy rights by allowing any male who might want to take advantage of the system to claim to be a woman just to have access to women's changing areas. more >>
Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini has announced that he's starting a new ministry looking to bring Muslim people to Jesus Christ, adding that he was told to do this directly by Christ 16 years ago.
"As you all know I was in prison for more than 3/5 years because Jesus met me 16 years ago and told me: 'I am coming back soon Go to preach my Gospel' and until today I didn't disobey Him and I will never disobey Him," Abedini wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
The pastor spent three and a half years in an Iranian prison for his Christian faith, and became the subject of major campaigns by persecution watchdog groups who called for his release. Abedini was finally granted his freedom back in January when he and three other hostages were released after President Obama gave the Iranian regime $400 million. more >>

I'm talking about an all-out war for the minds and hearts of your kids. more >>
What do April 30, 1945, and Nov. 8, 2016, have in common?
The first date was the culmination of World War II. On that fateful day, Adolf Hitler apparently shot himself in the mouth as Russian soldiers moved in on his compound. But in the midst of all that tragedy, an interesting saga played itself out in Germany.
Before Hitler realized that he had lost the war, almost all other Germans knew it well. The Russians were closing from the East, and the Americans came from the West. more >>
The American Family Association has compiled a list of 10 cases to showcase why Target's bathroom policies that allow male customers who identify as female to go into women's bathrooms and dressing rooms is dangerous to women and children.
"The overwhelming evidence continues to pile up against Target's policy to allow men into women's restrooms and dressing rooms in its stores," AFA President Tim Wildmon wrote on Thursday.
Target has defended its decision by stating: "We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity. ... Everyone deserves to feel like they belong." more >>
