Wheaton College should withdraw its suspension and possible firing of a professor who stated publicly that Muslims and Christians worship the same God, concluded the Evangelical school's Faculty Council.
In a unanimous decision made earlier this week, the Faculty Council concluded that Dr. Larycia Hawkins, known as the "Hijab Professor" for her decision to wear a hijab in solidarity with Muslims during Advent, should be allowed to return to work.

Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has praised a recent Google doodle of a pro-life feminist leader, and argued that human life should not be considered precious because of its ability to contribute to society, but because every human being is made in the image of God.
"As Christians we need to tell others why human life — every human life — is valuable, starting with God's Word. A life isn't intrinsically valuable because he or she can contribute to society; a life has intrinsic value because every human being is made in God's image (Genesis 1:27), and is a being who will live forever," Ham wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday.
"The Psalms remind us that 'I am fearfully and wonderfully made' (Psalm 139:14) and Jeremiah says that 'before I formed you in the womb I knew you' (Jeremiah 1:5). When we start our thinking with God's Word, it's readily apparent that every life has value, worth, and dignity," he added, and pointed to an AiG article from Sunday, which further elaborates on the topic. more >>
WASHINGTON — Women are being "victimized" and in some cases killed as a result of abortion procedures, yet lack of accurate data recording is keeping Americans in the dark about the issue, a prominent obstetrician-gynecologist who has been in her field for over 40 years explained Thursday.
During a panel discussion at the 2016 Evangelicals for Life conference, Dr. Freda Bush, a clinical instructor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Mississippi Medical Center who is an American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists board member, questioned whether Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics are doing their part to explain the real and fatal health risks of abortion to young women who are looking for a way out of their crisis pregnancies.
In the discussion, which was focused on the aftermath of Center for Medical Progress' undercover Planned Parenthood aborted baby body parts videos, Bush called for the "full disclosure" on how Planned Parenthood clinics respond to protect women who experience serious complications as a result of abortion procedures. more >>
Evangelicals in the pro-life movement need to go on offense in spreading their message, Jim Daly argued.
Daly, president of the Colorado Springs-based Focus on the Family, was part of a Thursday panel at Evangelicals for Life.
Daly drew a parallel to American football, arguing that "the commentators on football always talk about the defense getting tired. They never talk about the offense getting tired." more >>
