A Maryland school official who recently stirred controversy for saying that transgender students should be allowed to bunk on school-related trips with the gender group of their choice, told The Christian Post that the students "get it" when it comes to transgender acceptance.
Bob Mosier, chief communications officer for Anne Arundel County Public Schools, told CP on Friday that the district has long respected the rights of students regardless of their race, religion, sex, cultural background, or gender identity, among other labels.
A civil racketeering lawsuit that has dogged former Mars Hill Church Pastor Mark Driscoll since he was forced to resign from the now dissolved church in 2014, was dismissed by a U.S. District Court judge on Thursday.
"I am grateful to God for the dismissal of these false and malicious allegations," Driscoll, now senior pastor of Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona, told The Christian Post on Friday. "I remain steadfast and committed to preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am forever humbled and thankful for the prayers and tremendous support of family, friends, and fellow pastors."
The four plaintiffs named in the 42-page lawsuit against Driscoll didn't have the money to pursue the case and never served Driscoll or former chief elder Sutton Turner, who was also named as a defendant, with the necessary documents, according to The Seattle Times. As a result, the case was dismissed. more >>
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. is "under the dark spell of Donald Trump," according to a column published in the National Review.

When Jesus said people shouldn't judge, he wasn't telling them not to denounce wrong behavior, says world renowned evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
Recently, Graham was asked why Jesus told people not to judge, such as in Luke 6:37, where He said: "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned."
"I don't think it's up to us to judge who is religious and who isn't. I have my own beliefs, and I get upset when someone tries to question me about them or make me believe the same way they do. Didn't Jesus say somewhere that we shouldn't judge others?" the person asked in a Q&A submitted to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website. more >>
The Rev. Franklin Graham says Target doesn't need to spend $20 million to add unisex bathrooms to 300 of its stores nationwide to get its customers back, instead it needs to drop its transgender bathroom policy altogether.
Target recently announced that to end the American Family Association's boycott of the retail giant, it would install a single-use bathrooom in each of its stores that don't already have one. However, men who identify as female would still be allowed to go into women's bathrooms and changing rooms.
In a Facebook post from Wednesday, Graham said Target's "refusal to drop its transgender bathroom policy is going to cost the company — and the shareholders — big bucks!" more >>
