Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has praised The Master's College for breaking off from the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities due to its insistence on a literal interpretation of Genesis.
"We are always thankful when we hear about Christian colleges and universities that take a firm and public stand on the book of Genesis, refusing to compromise with man's ideas about the past and our origins. These colleges are sadly far and few between," Ham said in his Answers in Genesis blog on Monday.
After winning college football's most prestigious award Saturday night, University of Alabama running back Derrick Henry praised God and advised aspiring young athletes to keep God first while pursuing their dreams.
The 21-year-old Henry, who set a new Southeastern Conference record for nearly 2,000 rushing yards this season as a junior, fulfilled what he called a "lifelong dream" when he was named the 2015 winner of the Heisman Trophy in New York City on Saturday.
Notably, Henry won the closest Heisman vote since 2011 by earning over 1,832 points and 378 first-place votes. Heisman runner-up, Stanford's Christian McCaffrey, earned 1,539 points and 290 first-place votes, while Clemson's Deshaun Watson finished third place in the voting with 1,165 points and 148 first-place votes. more >>

The current turmoil on our nation's campuses is just a symptom of a deeper problem: Our universities have lost a vision for education.
Among the things that 2015 may be remembered for is as the year American universities turned into war zones: From anti-racism demonstrations where students harassed and physically removed student reporters, to profanity-laced protests over a memo about Halloween costumes, to demands for "trigger warnings" and blacklisting of even feminist speakers.
On campuses everywhere, students are turning on each other, their teachers, and administrators. Even some liberal commentators are asking: What kind of monsters is American higher education creating? more >>
The University of Mississippi has denied that it's censoring an annual campus Christmas celebration because of it being "too Christian."
Various publications, including Breitbart, have reported that Ole Miss had changed the name of its annual "A Grand Ole Christmas" to "Hotty Toddy Holidays" because the former was "too Christian."
In a statement released Wednesday, university officials denounced the claim of anti-Christian sentiment, claiming that initial reports on the reasons for the changes were taken out of context. more >>
A Wheaton College professor announced on Facebook Thursday night that she will be wearing a hijab (Muslim head scarf) throughout her celebration of the Advent as a way of showing solidarity with Muslims.
Larycia Hawkins, a political science professor at the Wheaton, Illinois, evangelical higher education institution, explained on her Facebook page that she will be wearing a hijab to work, class, and church. She also vows to wear the hijab during her trip to Chicago and even when she goes on an airplane to return to her hometown for Christmas.
"I don't love my Muslim neighbor because s/he is American. I love my Muslim neighbor because s/he deserves love by virtue of her/his human dignity," Hawkins wrote. "I stand in human solidarity with my Muslim neighbor because we are formed of the same primordial clay, descendants of the same cradle of humankind — a cave in Sterkfontein, South Africa that I had the privilege to descend into to plumb the depths of our common humanity in 2014." more >>
