The case involves United States Marine Corps Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling, who was court-martialed for disobeying an order to remove three signs from her office desk that quoted the Bible.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — On Tuesday, Ryan Bomberger of The Radiance Foundation addressed a student forum at Harvard University, a 90-minute discussion on abortion in the black community that turned hostile when students began shouting and walking out during the Q & A portion.
In an event co-sponsored by Law Students for Life and Harvard Black Law Students Association, Bomberger spoke opposite Professor Diane Rosenfeld, lecturer and director of the Gender Violence Program at Harvard Law School. As students filed in, the auditorium at the historic Austin Hall neared capacity.
"I speak on college campuses often, and I applaud these two groups partnering for an event that brought together so many different political stripes in the room," said Bomberger following the event. "They were hoping to have 50 to 100 students, and more than 160 showed up which blew them away." more >>

Schilling also wrote in the comment section below the meme that reads: "A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don't care what they are, who they sleep with, men's room was designed for the penis, women's not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently, Pathetic!" more >>
