Campus housing specifically for 15 alternative sexualities, including sadomasochists, is acceptable, but fraternities that just allow men are not, at Wesleyan University.
Wesleyan University housing has an option for students who want to live with others identifying with one of 15 categories — LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM. The university's inclusiveness excludes, however, male-only fraternities.
Delta Kappa Epsilon sued Wesleyan University after the liberal arts college ordered all of its fraternities to admit women, charging sexual discrimination and false and deceptive practices. more >>

A 19-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting a female on Saturday at the University of Illinois-Chicago campus has reportedly told police that he was acting out scenes from the recently released film "Fifty Shades of Grey."
CBS Chicago identified the man as Mohammad Hossain, and noted that he's facing a charge of felony aggravated criminal sexual assault. State attorneys confirmed that when speaking with investigators, the man said that he was "acting out" scenes from "Fifty Shades of Grey," based on the famous book series of the same name that deals with sexual bondage.
ABC 7 Chicago added that the assault took place in Hossain's dorm room. Prosecutors said that the female victim was sexually assaulted after Hossain allegedly bound her hands and legs and covered her mouth with a necktie, and refused to stop after she asked him to. more >>
Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has said that students in the western world who are taught only evolution and not creationism are being indoctrinated rather than given a proper education.
"Currently in the USA and virtually all the western world, students are just being taught one side of the story and teachers aren't even allowed to present the grave problems with evolution to their students! In reality, western public schools have told teachers that they must protect evolutionary naturalism. This is not education; this is indoctrination," Ham wrote on the AiG blog.
The creationist reflected on proposals made by Scottish Parliament Member John Mason, who has argued that since the belief that God created the world cannot be "proved or disproved by science," then it needs to be taught alongside evolution. more >>
Texas megachurch pastor Matt Chandler says the way the world defines marriage is "unbiblical" and "unhealthy", yet far too many young Christians are following after the cultural standards of love. This reality prompted the Village Church leader to offer biblical insights on dating, courtship and marriage from the Song of Solomon in his recently released book Mingling of Souls.
The book is also a reflection of how God transformed his marriage of 15 years to his wife, Lauren. "The first seven years of my marriage were extremely difficult years and then the last eight have been really blessed. I wanted to talk about relationships in a way that was honest and straight forward," said Chandler.
In the interview below (edited for clarity), Chandler explains why the notion of finding "the one" is a myth and reveals what couples should do to keep the passion in their marriage. more >>
I just ran across Graham Moore's Oscar acceptance speech from last night, described by The Huffington Post to be the night's most moving speech.
"I tried to commit suicide at 16 and now I'm standing here," he said. "I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she doesn't fit in anywhere. You do. Stay weird. Stay different, and then when it's your turn and you are standing on this stage please pass the same message along."
But I would add one more point; don't stay in your sinful lifestyle. more >>
