A Christian university in Canada is appealing a court ruling banning its accreditation because the school opposes homosexuality.
Trinity Western University argued before the British Columbia Court of Appeal on Wednesday that the province's Law Society should not ban the school from accreditation over its biblical stance on issues such as homosexuality.
TWU is being represented in part by the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada and Christian Higher Education Canada. This is because the university is an affiliate of the EFC and a member of the CHEC, according to EFC President Bruce Clemenger. more >>
Tyler Perry is known more for creating plays, television shows and films than social commentary.
Still, that didn't stop him from speaking out against former neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman who fatally shot 17-year-old black teenager Trayvon Martin near his Sanford, Florida, home in 2012, and was not found guilty. After Zimmerman auctioned off the gun that he used to kill the unarmed black teenager for $138,000, Perry spoke out against the act.
"I don't understand people that are that low, I don't get it, I can't even think that low…I think it would take someone who could do that and profit from it to think that," Perry, who appears in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows," said in a Global Grind interview. "What I do know is this, every bit of darkness that he puts out is going to find its way back into his life." more >>

A conservative legal organization is crying foul at the appointment of a former member of the Southern Poverty Law Center to prosecute a case against Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.
The Alabama Chief Justice is battling a complaint filed by the Montgomery-based activist group — known for labeling organizations opposed to same-sex marriage as "hate groups" — for alleged ethics violations when he defied a court order to allow state judges to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

Televangelist Bishop Eddie Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia, has refused to answer whether the 2010 accusations against him that he had sex with four teenagers are true.
Long was directly asked a yes or no question by talk show host Steve Harvey on WAGA Fox 5 in Atlanta about the allegations, to which he replied: "I'm bound by court. I can't make any statement about that."
Long was accused back in 2010 by four young men that he forced them to have sexual relations with him while they were teenagers. The case was reportedly settled in 2011, but due to the nature of the agreement, the pastor is unable to speak about the details. more >>
President Barack Obama's transgender bathroom directive is part of a broader effort to fundamentally transform America, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins argued.
Earlier in May, President Obama sent a directive to public schools informing them that they must allow transgender students to use whichever bathrooms or showers correspond with their chosen gender identity.
