A preschool in Missouri that was denied state funds to improve its playground because it's owned by a Lutheran church says the state's discrimination against the school is unconstitutional, as its attorneys file a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court.
Trinity Lutheran Church Learning Center of Columbia filed a lawsuit against the Department of Natural Resources after it rejected the school's application for a grant to take part in a program meant to improve the safety of playgrounds by using recycled tires as ground cover.
In an interview with The Christian Post on Monday, Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel Erik Stanley said this case is particularly egregious given the secular nature of the program. more >>
Princeton University is seemingly phasing out references to the word "man," as the historic Ivy League institution has issued a memo detailing the gender-inclusive terminology that staff members should use to avoid offending anybody with gender-binary terms.
Princeton's human resources department has produced a four-page document outlining how staff members within the department should write different resourcing documents and policies so they don't label others with gender-specific pronouns and suffixes, the College Fix reported on Thursday.
"Consistent with style guidelines issued by Princeton's Office of Human Resources and Office of Communications, and as endorsed by the Institutional Equity Planning Group as a preferred university practice, HR has developed these gender inclusive style guidelines, to be utilized by all HR staff members in HR communications, policies, job descriptions, and job postings," the memo states. "These communication guidelines reflect the inclusive culture and policies at Princeton University." more >>

WASHINGTON – The forthcoming Museum of the Bible is currently an evolving skeleton of brick, rebar and concrete that reaches toward the D.C. skyline and will, on one floor of the edifice, encompass an entire city block.
Up to 500 construction workers may at once mill about in neon safety gear building the non-sectarian museum that plans to be an unparalleled experiential walk through one of the world's most sacred texts.
Museum President Cary Summers took The Christian Post behind the scenes on a hardhat tour through the 8-level construction zone last week, sharing the ongoing construction journey — a process that has presented a few challenges enroute to becoming arguably the first museum of its kind. more >>
The Satanic Temple is one step closer to forming a chapter of its After School Satan Club at an elementary school in Utah.
Earlier this year, the satanist group announced that it's starting After School Satan Club chapters in public schools across the country, including Vista Elementary of Taylorsville, located within the Granite School District.

A big-time threat to religious freedom in California has been somewhat mitigated — showing once again our prayers and efforts make a difference.
It can seem to us that each day brings news of yet another setback or some new ominous cultural development that's concerning to Christians, each one another straw on the back of an already overloaded camel.
But as recent events in California demonstrate, these trends can be resisted and, if not reversed, at least held at bay. more >>
