A Kentucky high school has defied an atheist group's demand that the school keep prayer out of its pre-football game festivities, as the school kicked off its 2015 football season with a student-led invocation last Friday.
Prior to August 2011, Bell County High School practiced a long-standing tradition of letting a Christian pastor lead in a pre-game prayer over the stadium's public-address system as a way of asking God to keep the student-athletes safe.
But after the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the nation's largest atheist organization, filed a complaint with the school district's then-Superintendent George Thompson, and threatened to file a lawsuit, school officials decided to end the prayer tradition to avoid costly litigation. more >>
Because of the AshleyMadison.com cyber hack, there is a massive amount of upheaval in the homes of many who were registered in the database.
I read sadly last week, as many did, about Josh Duggar who admitted to having extramarital affairs — thanks in part to the morally corrupt website whose motto is "Life is short. Have an affair."
A better slogan to their website could have been "Life is short. We will help you ruin yours." more >>
A group of students in Duke University's freshman class are speaking out publicly about their refusal to read a novel that was selected as the freshman summer reading book because the book's pornographic content violates their Christian beliefs and moral principles.
In April, Duke University announced that the book, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic, an autobiographical novel written by New York Times best-selling author Alison Bechdel about her relationship with her father, was the one book selected from a list of six titles to be the class of 2019's "Common Experience" summer reading book.
Although Duke's summer reading program is not required, the purpose behind the program is to give incoming students the opportunity to discuss the book in small groups during their orientation before school starts. A special printing of the book was mailed over the summer to all incoming freshman. more >>
A prayer board inside an eighth grade Mississippi classroom might be coming down after an atheist group threatened to sue the school district over the students' prayers.
Lamar County School District officials will soon issue a decision regarding the prayer request display, which was on a classroom's closet door at Oak Grove Middle School.
"The 'board' is painted onto the back of a closet door. The names have been removed at this time to protect the students," said Tess R. Smith, superintendent of the Lamar County School District, to The Christian Post regarding the status of the prayer request board. more >>
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards admitted to Congress on Thursday that a Planned Parenthood clinic involved in fetal tissue research currently sells aborted baby body parts for $60 per baby, which critics say far exceeds what is allowed by law for reimbursement costs.
Planned Parenthood also released a report on the series of undercover videos appearing to show Planned Parenthood's involvement in the illegal harvesting and selling of aborted baby parts. The report, paid for by Planned Parenthood and from a liberal research group that has conducted opposition research for the Democratic Party, claims the videos falsely represent Planned Parenthood.
In a letter sent to congressional leaders addressing the recent undercover video series produced by the Center for Medical Progress that attempts to expose legal violations within the the abortion giant's fetal tissue reimbursement practices, Richards claimed that CMP's videos are nothing more than a "smear" campaign and asserted that her organization has violated no laws. more >>
A Muslim family in Lahore, Pakistan, has abducted, tortured and shot their 23-year-old daughter and her Christian husband, leaving them for dead, in retaliation for their daughter's conversion to Christianity.
The 28-year-old husband, Aleem Masih, was killed in the late-July incident after taking three shots, including one to the head. His wife, Nadia, was shot in the midsection and remains in critical condition in the hospital, the Christian persecution monitor Morning Star News reported.
The Masihs got married about a year ago after Nadia gave her life to Jesus at the dismay of her Muslim parents. The Masihs decided to flee to the Narang Mandi, a town about 37 miles from Lahore, to avoid being victimized by an act of honor violence from Nadia's family after Aleem and his family members were continuously threatened. more >>
