The president of a Christian college in Oklahoma has condemned the rise of political correctness on college campuses and told students who seek to silence speech that offends them that they are "self-absorbed" and "need to grow up."
Everett Piper, the president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, a Christian liberal arts college with about 1,200 undergraduate students, wrote a letter last week informing the school's students that college is "not day care" and that quests by "offended" students to limit freedom of speech will not be taken seriously.
Piper explained in his letter that one OKWU student recently complained after a chapel service that he felt "victimized" by a sermon focused on 1 Corinthians 13. Since the sermon dealt with the homily on love, the student argued that the sermon made him feel bad because he doesn't make a habit of showing love. more >>

"Tim's super into her," a source told Us magazine just two months ago. Tebow was released by the Philadelphia Eagles as No. 3 quarterback at the beginning of the season, and it was around that time he and Culpo first started dating. more >>

During an in-flight press conference on the return trip from his six-day visit in Africa, a German journalist asked the pontiff: "We know that condoms are not the only method of solving the epidemic, but it's an important part of the answer. Is it not time for the church to change its position on the matter? To allow the use of condoms to prevent more infections?"
As the Catholic Church has historically opposed all forms of contraception and teaches abstinence is the best way to prevent sexually transmitted diseases, Pope Francis responded by saying that he felt that the journalist's condom suggestion would only have a small effect on a larger problems facing the continent, the Catholic News Agency reports. more >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has spoken out against evangelicals who embrace evolution and deny that Adam, the first man, was created by supernatural means.
"Evangelicals who embrace evolution have a few proposals for interpreting Adam, including that he's the head of a tribe, an archetype of humanity, or that he did not even exist," Ham said on Tuesday, and linked to an article by Answers in Genesis' U.K. General Manger Simon Turpin.
In the article, Turpin argues that an increasing number of evangelicals today are losing their faith in a literal interpretation of the creation account in Genesis, and do not believe that Adam was created by supernatural means. more >>
