A referendum meant to overturn a California law that critics say allows men to use women's restrooms is pushing to get the necessary number of signatures to be on the state ballot next year.
The group Privacy For All will need to gather 365,880 valid signatures to put their referendum on the state ballot, with petitions needing to be postmarked no later than December 14.
Privacy For All seeks to have California voters approve the Personal Privacy Protection Act, which overturns part of a 2013 law that allows for co-ed bathrooms. more >>

In a statement to The Christian Post, Students for Life noted they "were challenging all Christian schools to make it a priority to support pregnant and parenting students and not discriminate against them." Plus, "Many schools do already make it a priority to support the pro-life position, such as Oklahoma Wesleyan University ...," and SFL "is proud to work with such honorable schools and hope that other Christian institutions of higher education follow their path."
Pro-life students are urging Christian colleges not to ban or expel students who are pregnant out-of-wedlock or had an abortion after 27 Christian colleges and universities were granted a federal non-discrimination exemption that allows them to ban gays, transgenders, unwed mothers and women who have had abortions. more >>
A Norwegian Christian family whose five children were seized by the state's child services due to fear that they were being indoctrinated with Christianity, are planning to hold various protests calling for the return of their children in a number of cities across the globe.
After the five children of the Bodnariu family were taken into custody by the Barnevernet (Norway's child protective services agency) on Nov. 16, based on a teacher's concerns about how the children are being raised by "radical" Christians who were "indoctrinating" their children, the family's appeal of the agency's decision to remove the children from the home was rejected on Nov. 27.
As the family's children are now placed in three separate foster homes, Marius and Ruth Bodnariu have gained support from thousands of people all over the world who agree that the state has no right to remove the children from the home, as over 36,600 individuals have now signed a petition calling on the government to free the children. more >>
What could be more divine than showing mercy to needy women who are expecting a child? Here's one doctor's story.
During the Advent season, our thoughts turn to images of a young, poor couple making a grueling, 90-mile journey, probably in a caravan which offered some protection from bandits and robbers. The young woman, nine months pregnant, is riding a donkey — not especially comfortable for a woman in her condition. She and her betrothed are likely living off bread they brought from home. When they arrive at their destination, exhausted and cold, they are dismayed to find that the local inns are full up. As they search for shelter, the woman suddenly goes into labor.
As most of us know, this little drama has a happy ending: A baby — the Son of God! — is born in a primitive stable. His cries mingle with the baa-ing of sheep, the braying of donkeys, and the singing of angels. more >>

NEW YORK — Actress Jennifer Nettles who stars in Dolly Parton's Christmas special "Coat of Many Colors" Thursday night says the made-for-TV movie provides an unforgettable message of how faith and love can carry a family through crisis.
"I think the best message of the film is you can be rich in things but it's much more important to be rich in love," said Nettles, who portrays Dolly's mother, Avie Lee, to The Christian Post on Monday.
"Coat of Many Colors" is Nettles' first onscreen role, and she brings Dolly's mother to life in the emotional retelling of how the family made it through the deep sorrow they experienced following the death of Dolly's newborn brother, Larry, who died the same day he was born, July 6, 1955. more >>
