A North Carolina school district's pro-LGBT character the "gender unicorn" is being used for a training session in which faculty are told parental involvement may not be required for students struggling with gender identity issues.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools had recently approved measures to allow transgender students access to the public facilities of their choice, in defiance of state law, before backing off for now.
Included in their plans for the new measures was a recently released training presentation for faculty that featured the "gender unicorn" character. more >>
A North Carolina school district that was planning to enact rules on transgender usage of public facilities that violated state law is putting these plans on hold.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools announced Thursday that they were halting the implementation of a policy that would allow students to use the restrooms and locker rooms of their chosen gender identity rather than their biological sex.
School Superintendent Ann Clark said in a statement that the decision was influenced by U.S. Supreme Court's decision earlier this week to put a stay on a ruling that favored a female transgender student suing a Virginia school district to allow her to use the men's room. more >>
Stressed-out fathers slow their children's learning and cognitive abilities, according to new research.
In a survey of over 730 families, Tamesha Harewood, a postdoctoral researcher from Michigan State University, and her colleagues found that when fathers had high levels of "parenting stress," their sons tended to have poorer language skills at age 3. When Dad is stressed both boys and girls typically score lower on cognition tests — referring to abilities like learning, reasoning, and paying attention. more >>
Two recent studies on religion versus family size have revealed just how faith influences reproduction.
A recent study conducted by the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B analyzed over 3.6 million women of different faiths across 32 countries, and concluded that religious people are more likely to have more children than non-religious ones, according to Fox News.
The Royal Society B study, which used the Minnesota-based Integrated Public Use Microdata Series International Census as a source, also found that women in marriages where both husband and wife practiced the same religion were more likely to have more children and less likely to have no children. more >>
The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to block a lower court ruling requiring a Virginia school disctrict to base bathroom use upon gender identity highlights the "brazen lawlessness" of a North Carolina school district that seeks to do the same, says a Christian activist.
In a 5-3 decision, the highest court in the nation granted a stay on behalf of Gloucester County Public Schools of Virginia on Wednesday after a three judge panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated a lower court decision on behalf of the school district.
The Reverend Mark Creech of the North Carolina based Christian Action League released a statement about the Supreme Court's decision focusing on how the decision may influence the Charlotte Mecklenberg School District. more >>
Donald Trump recently signed a pledge to enforce anti-obscenity laws, a move internet safety activists are applauding even as Trump has built casinos with strip clubs.
The nonprofit, nonpartisan organization Enough Is Enough authored the 8-page document Trump signed. It calls for the appointment of an attorney general who will aggressively enforce laws like the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and a presidential commission to address the public health impact of porn on young people and families. The document also advocates for the establishment of corporate partnerships to curb internet-enabled sexual exploitation of children using the latest technological tools.
The Christian Post reached out to Enough is Enough president and CEO Donna Rice Hughes to inquire if Trump's move is indeed genuine given his past business dealings and appearance on the cover of Playboy. more >>
