Oklahoma Wesleyan University recently agreed to join a lawsuit against the Obama Administration over campus sexual assault case standards, arguing that they violate student rights to due process.
The Christian school filed the suit Monday, becoming the first and thus far only higher education institution to challenge a 2011 mandate from the federal government regarding campus sexual assault cases.
In a statement released Monday, Oklahoma Wesleyan President Dr. Everett Piper declared that "OKWU will always defend our students' constitutional rights." more >>
In response to a reader's concerns for their grandchildren who will never know what it's like to start each school day off with a prayer, the Rev. Billy Graham says while he doesn't believe prayer will ever return to public schools, there are other ways students can talk to God throughout their day.
"Do you think we'll ever get back to the days when they allowed prayer in our public schools?" the grandparent asked, emphasizing that they found the absence of prayer and other religious practices within schools to be troubling.
"When I was young, we used to pray and read the Bible in school every day, but my grandchildren aren't able to experience this, and it upsets me a great deal." more >>

Independent presidential hopeful Evan McMullin, a former CIA agent and chief policy director for the House Republican Conference, spoke with The Christian Post about religious liberty, Donald Trump, his Mormon faith, and the challenge of getting his name on state ballots.
On August 8, McMullin garnered national headlines when he announced that he was going to run for president, arguing in an open letter that Americans deserve a better choice than either Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton or Republican nominee Donald Trump.
"Like millions of Americans, I had hoped this year would bring us better nominees who, despite party differences, could offer compelling visions of a better future," stated McMullin. "Instead, we have been left with two candidates who are fundamentally unfit for the profound responsibilities they seek." more >>
Family Research Council's Travis Weber is advising parents, teachers and school administrators not to fall into the trap that The Satanic Temple group is setting by launching its "After School Satan Club."
Taking advantage of a United States Supreme Court ruling from 2001 holding that schools that have a "limited public forum" open to after school Christian clubs can not discriminate against other groups looking to use that forum to advance their worldview, The Satanic Temple has helped launch After School Satan Clubs (ASSC) in a number of elementary schools around the nation.
With the help of volunteers, the ASSC is being launched at public schools that already have Good News Clubs or any other after school Christian clubs in existence. more >>
