Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham has railed against a $60,000 award given to a fifth grade transgender teacher in Oregon who says she was harassed and "misgendered" by coworkers.
"Doesn't a person's DNA or birth certificate count for anything? Shouldn't fact override fantasy? God created people male and female," Graham said in a Facebook post on Thursday.

(Christian Examiner) – When the Civil Rights Movement gained momentum in the 1960s, Christian ministers were forced to confront ugly, twisted misinterpretations of the Bible that categorized black Americans as something "other" than fully human and inferior to whites.
In many places, especially in the South, that was a difficult, long-lasting process. On occasion, with fundamentalist colleges like Bob Jones University, the federal government had to step in and punctuate the equilibrium to ensure the progression toward equality continued.
Since that time, it has become clear that blacks and whites in America, broadly categorized, are culturally different. Each group has its own history, making up its prejudices and challenging the way they see their fellow Americans of different races. But there is no distinction in the way we are created inherently as human beings. The concept is not only one inherent in the Declaration of Independence; it is a fundamental truth of Scripture. more >>
