A California senate bill proposes that only colleges and universities that are controlled by a religious organization to train ministers be allowed policies consistent with a conservative view of gender and sexuality, and that all faith-based institutions that have the exemption disclose the basis for it.
"Faith-based institutions in California would no longer be able to require a profession of faith of their students … to integrate faith throughout the teaching curriculum … to require chapel attendance for students, an integral part of the learning experience at faith-based universities … to require core units of Bible courses, nor offer students spiritual direction or pastoral care," says Biola University, of the likely effects of the bill, SB 1146.
"Athletic teams would no longer be able to lead faith-based community service programs." more >>
A day after USA Swimming banned former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner, 20, who was convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman and sentenced to six months in jail and probation, a group of witches dissatisfied with the sentence gathered online for a mass "hexing" of the swimmer on Tuesday.
"Brock Turner's membership with USA Swimming expired at the end of the calendar year 2014," USA Swimming spokesman Scott Leightman said in an email to USA Today Sports. "He was not a member at the time of his crime or since then. USA Swimming doesn't have any jurisdiction over non-members.
"Brock Turner is not a member of USA Swimming and, should he apply, he would not be eligible for membership. ... Had he been a member, he would be subject to the USA Swimming Code of Conduct. USA Swimming strictly prohibits and has zero tolerance for sexual misconduct, with firm Code of Conduct policies in place, and severe penalties, including a permanent ban of membership, for those who violate our Code of Conduct," he added. more >>

"It's weird because I feel like I'm still spending time fighting off the naysayers who think I only have these opportunities because of Stephen," Ayesha said. "While I'm clearly aware that he has helped me get through the door, I have to walk through that door and I feel like I have the talent to be here. So it has been fun to prove people wrong." more >>
If you enjoy stumping your liberal friends, ask, "are sex chromosomes real?" and watch them squirm.
In a 2013 debate at American University, dissident feminist Camille Paglia told a remarkable story of an argument she had with fellow feminists in the early 1970s. When she remarked that males and females have hormonal differences, her colleagues told her that hormones are not real, they were only made up by a conspiracy of male scientists.
"I felt as if I had fallen down a rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland," Paglia recalled. more >>
WASHINGTON — The mother of one of the 276 Chibok schoolgirls who were kidnapped by the Nigerian militant group Boko Haram from a public school in the Borno State in 2014 says God will help her and the rest of her village overcome the adversity and uncertainty that they face.
Although it has been over two years since the Islamic State-affiliated terrorist outfit abducted the schoolgirls from the government secondary girls school in Chibok on April 14, 2014, only one has been rescued so far.
One Chibok mother, who had her 15-year-old daughter kidnapped by the militant organization on that fateful night, became the first parent of a kidnapped Chibok girl to leave Nigeria to speak out about the mass abduction outside the country. more >>
