The American Center for Law and Justice has successfully aided students from a New York-area high school in expressing their religious freedom through an after-school Bible study.
Concerned parents contacted the legal group after learning that the superintendent of an unnamed high school in Amsterdam, N.Y., had told a senior female student that she could not hold her student-led, after-school Bible study club without first purchasing an insurance policy to use the campus after school hours.
The superintendent made his request of the Bible study club even though other student-led clubs were not required to obtain an insurance policy. After being contacted by concerned parents and students, the ACLJ reportedly provided parents information about "relevant legal principals regarding religious clubs' access to school facilities," coming to the conclusion "that the Bible club must be given the same privileges as any other student-led club." more >>

DeVon Franklin, Senior Vice President of Production for Columbia TriStar Pictures, is praying for a major turnout for the new film, Heaven Is for Real, in theaters this week. Blockbuster sales at the box office would, according to the Hollywood executive and devout Christian, result in more faith-friendly features on the big screen.
"The success of this movie opening weekend directly correlates to the decision to green-light and make more of them. It's an immediate thing," Franklin told The Christian Post via phone on Tuesday. "If there's a sense that there's a growing market and a growing hunger for more films like this, then the desire to continue to provide more films will increase, and decisions will be made to be able to make more films like this.
"With the success of this movie this weekend, I'm praying and believing and trusting God that it will be successful, then decisions will be made quickly on continuing to make sure that this audience and audiences like it that want more product like this will have more products available for them." more >>
Charles Jenkins, pastor of the historic Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Chicago, Ill., and writer of the popular worship song "Awesome," which has become an anthem in churches across the United States, is now at the center of an embarrassing scandal after a woman released a nude photo of him online in an alleged extortion plot.
A report from EEW Magazine News describes the unidentified woman as a disgruntled ex-employee who is trying to get Jenkins to pay money owed to her. The report, based on details revealed by ObnoxiousTV, alleges that the woman may have been more than just an employee to Jenkins.
"Allegedly, the woman attempted to blackmail God's called servant and demanded $20,000 in cash to keep his secrets secret (rumored she might actually be owed the money as compensation for her employment). However, according to conjecture, she was only paid half and the remaining balance was not delivered as planned," noted the ObnoxiousTV report. more >>
