A school district in Wyoming has reversed a high school principal's decision to bar students from privately praying in the school cafeteria during lunchtime after a Christian law firm threatened to take legal action if the students were prohibited from exercising their religious liberty.
On Oct. 15 a small group of students, led by the children of Pastor Marty Roark, gathered in the back of the Glendo High School cafeteria to bow their heads and pray over their lunchtime meal. The student that offered the prayer spoke only so the group could hear him and after the prayer was over, the students sat down and ate their lunch without causing any disruption.
Although the prayer was not initiated by a school employee, Principal Stanetta Twiford approached one of the students after lunch and told her that she and the other students were not allowed to pray during lunch because it was pushing their religion onto the other students. more >>

Republican presidential candidate Florida Sen. Marco Rubio declared Sunday that he has been called a "bigot" for supporting the biblical definition of marriage and explained such language is often used by the left to make millions of conservatives feel "out of place in their own country."

A discrimination lawsuit filed by Atlanta's former fire chief against the city on the basis that he was fired for publishing a book containing his Christian views on homosexuality, will be heard in federal court after a judge refused the city's request to dismiss the lawsuit on Wednesday.
Former Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran, an evangelical Christian who previously served as the Obama administration's Administrator of the United States Fire Administration, was suspended without pay for a month and ordered to complete sensitivity training last November by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed after he self-published a book he wrote on his own time titled, Who Told You That You Were Naked?, for a Bible study at his church.
The book included just two passages in all 160 pages that were critical of homosexuality, calling it "vulgar" and "the opposite of purity." In addition to publishing the book, Cochran distributed about 20 copies of the book to people at work. City attorney Robert Godfrey has stated in the past that action was taken against Cochran after some employees complained to city council members. more >>

There aren't many things that I come across while scanning my Twitter feed that would even provoke me to comment, but the recent controversy surrounding Ayesha Curry's Twitter comment did just that.
I find it rather sad that Curry would be criticized for advocating for modesty.
The wife of NBA superstar Stephen "Steph" Curry, Ayesha Curry is making headlines for her tweet that she likes to dress in a way that keeps "the good stuff covered up for the one who matters" (clearly she's talking about her husband). more >>
