The Islamic State terror group has reportedly executed a pregnant woman and taken away her four children, punishing the family for trying to flee the village of al-Marir in Iraq.
MailOnline reported on Wednesday that witnesses saw the mother taken away and executed by the Islamic extremists after she was caught trying to guide her children out of the village, which is located nearby the city of Mosul, one of IS' main bases.
The mother was trying to reach an Iraqi military base, but was spotted and stopped by the jihadists before she could escape with her children. more >>
A transgender former employee at Abercrombie & Fitch is suing the retailer for $35 million over its "look policy," which required him to wear a girl's uniform even though he identifies as a man, despite being born female.
Maha Shalaby used to work at the clothing store's flagship location in Manhattan on Fifth Avenue and, according to the New York Post, was originally told that he could wear men's attire only to find out later that he was not allowed to do so under the company's dress code, which also forbids facial hair and tattoos.
At issue is a store manager who informed Shalaby that he was required to "wear a girl's uniform because that's what customers want to see," the lawsuit alleges. more >>
Pope Francis has said that he's firmly opposed to the teaching of gender theory to children in schools, arguing that the idea that "everyone can choose their own sex" is the "exact opposite" of God's creation.
"Today, children are taught this at school: That everyone can choose their own sex. And why do they teach this? Because the books come from those people and institutions who give money," Francis told Polish bishops last week, according to Catholic Herald.
"God created man and woman; God created the world like this and we are doing the exact opposite." more >>
The American Family Association, the group behind the large-scale boycott against Target for its transgender bathroom policies, has warned parents to keep their children away from the retail giant for back-to-school shopping.
"For months, the American Family Association has worked hard to remind families that Target's policy means that a man can simply say he 'feels like a woman today' and enter the women's restroom, even if young girls or women are already present," said AFA President Tim Wildmon in a statement.
"Target's policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And headlines this summer have proven this is the case. Target's lack of action on this issue has proven that its main concern is not the safety of customers, but rather, political correctness." more >>

A Catholic man who worked at the department store chain Macy's for over 26 years is now taking legal action against his former employer, claiming that he was fired for privately believing that the company's transgender bathroom policy violates the teachings of the Bible.
Javier Chavez, who was employed as a senior detective at the Macy's store in Queens, New York, was fired following an incident back in May when he responded to a complaint from a female customer who reported that a man was in the women's bathroom. The woman said she and her daughter were uncomfortable entering the bathroom with the man being present.
According to the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, Chavez instructed a security employee under his command to tell the transgender individual to leave the bathroom. The customer argued that he identifies as a female and later complained to store management. more >>
