Kansas' public schools will not adhere to President Barack Obama's transgender bathroom directive, thanks to a vote taken by state leadership.
In a unanimous vote, the state Board of Education approved a statement last week rejecting the Obama Administration's directive on transgender student bathroom guidelines.
"We are firm in our belief that decisions about the care, safety and well-being of all students are best made by the local school district based on the needs and desires of the students, parents and communities they serve," read the statement in part. more >>
New York City Council's Housing Committee voted 8-0 on Monday to remove "men" and "women" designations from single occupant public bathrooms to accommodate transgender people and those who refuse to identify as either male or female.
"Most New Yorkers take their non-fettered access to bathrooms for granted. Yet every single day, transgender and gender non-conforming individuals must grapple with the fact that their choices may lead to harassment or worse," said Councilman Daniel Dromm, (D-Queens), the measure's prime sponsor, according to the New York Post.
"There's an added bonus: Anyone looking for an unoccupied bathroom will now have more options," he claims. more >>
Removing references to Islam from the Orlando shooter's 911 calls was a "foolish idea," a homeland security expert told The Christian Post.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has released redacted transcripts of Omar Mateen's 911 calls during the June 12th Orlando massacre at the Pulse nightclub. In a Sunday interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Attorney General Loretta Lynch told Chuck Todd that references to Islamic terrorism in the transcripts of those calls would not be made public.
Mateen spoke with Orlando police both while he attacked and during the subsequent hostage situation. Lynch said the transcript portions where Mateen made "pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups" would not be released in order to "avoid revictimizing those who went through this horror." more >>
An organizer for the annual "March for Marriage" event in the District of Columbia stated that President Barack Obama's transgender bathroom directive is the "next step" for the LGBT agenda.
Later this week the National Organization for Marriage will organize its latest "March for Marriage" in the nation's capital. The event lobbies for the government to recognize marriage as being between one man and one woman only.
National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown told The Christian Post in emailed comments that the current effort to allow men to use women's restrooms was the next step after last year's Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage. more >>
Surprise, surprise: President Barack Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. He wants someone to follow him who will protect his disastrous legacy. He couldn't have made a better choice.
"I know how hard this job can be. That's why I know Hillary will be so good at it," he explained.
He provided plenty of joke lines for the late night shows. But he made clear that he won't remain on the sidelines during the campaign: joint political appearances are now being planned. more >>
Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas has called out President Barack Obama for defending Muslims following the Orlando massacre where 49 people were killed at a gay nightclub, and said the rhetoric would be very different if a Christian conservative had carried it out.
"If this had been a conservative Christian who committed this horrific act, this is all Barack Obama would be talking about — how Christians needs to rethink their faith and reform their views. But he is silent about that when it comes to radical Islam," Jeffress alleged on Fox Business' "Varney & Co." on on Wednesday.
Orlando shooter Omar Mateen pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State terror group before carrying out the shooting, and according to sources close to the investigation he made social media posts vowing that his actions would serve as revenge for U.S. airstrikes against IS targets. more >>
