President Barack Obama has signed an executive order commissioning former megachurch pastor Rob Bell to write a gender-neutral Bible.
Meant to serve as a corollary to Obama's demands that public schools allow boys to go into girls' bathrooms, the executive order will give Bell $7 million to research, write and and publish a Bible that breaks through the barriers of gender.
In a rare White House press briefing, Obama said Bell is the most competent person for the job. more >>
With ecstatic exuberance and impassioned chants of "I'm With Her," large numbers of Hillary Clinton supporters are celebrating their candidate being labeled "extremely careless" by a prominent federal agency.
As the Federal Bureau of Investigation concludes that as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton acted incompetently regarding her email server, campaign volunteers could not be more proud.

Comey said the probe found there was evidence of extremely careless handling of emails by Clinton, now the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, and that at least 110 emails contained classified information at the time they were sent.
But he said the FBI's judgment was that "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring charges against Clinton, who had a voluntary 3-1/2-hour interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Saturday in Washington. more >>

A woman who identifies as a left-wing academic says her parental rights are being denied by doctors who are planning to mutilate her 19-year-old autistic daughter's body by performing gender reassignment surgery, which includes having her breasts amputated and taking massive testosterone injections to "grow a penis."
"I am a lone voice in the academic and social work world speaking out against the [trensgender] transitioning of autistic people, what I feel to be both a crime against the disabled as well as their sterilization," Dr. Kathleen Levinstein, a clinical social worker teaching at the University of Michigan, told Breitbart News.
Levinstein revealed that her daughter has a functional age of 11, and argued that she was entirely unprepared to make such decisions herself. more >>
