Persecution watchdog groups are raising awareness for a Christian Pakistani girl who was killed earlier this month after she and her friends rejected the sexual advances of drunken Muslim men in Lahore, Defence Colony.
The British Pakistani Christian Association reported last week that the incident occurred on Jan. 13, when three young Christian girls, Kiran (17 years), Shamroza (18 years) and Sumble (20 years), were approached on the streets at night by four allegedly drunk Muslim men in a car. The girls rejected the lewd advances of the men, which caused them to turn violent.
"How dare you run away from us, Christian girls are only meant for one thing, the pleasure of Muslim men," one of the men reportedly said. more >>
Tim Tebow rose to fame as a college football star, but he is not shying away from warning others about turning high profile athletes and sports into idols.
"We choose to idolize certain things, and love certain things," Tebow said while speaking at a benefit for the Cancer Wellness Foundation of Central Alabama. "I'm not saying it's wrong to love sports, I love them as much as anybody. But do we choose to really see what matters?"
As a speaker at the Montgomery, Alabama, benefit called "The Journey Continues" Tebow invited three "wish girls" battling cancer to join him. Instead of focusing on celebrities, the athlete-turned-college football analyst spoke about how "messed up" it was that people were not honoring those trying to overcome cancer. more >>

A judge in Minnesota has ruled that a national check-printing company must pay $115,000 and apologize to a transgender "woman" for banning "her" from using the women's restroom.
Minnesota-based Deluxe Financial Services, Inc. has been asked to pay $115,000 to the complainant, Britney Austin, and also to change its policies for transgender employees, as part of the settlement of a sex discrimination and harassment lawsuit brought by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Austin, employed in the company's Phoenix offices, told her supervisor in 2011 that she is a transgender and began to present herself as a woman at work. Deluxe refused to let her use the women's restroom, according to the complaint, which states that supervisors and coworkers subjected Austin to a "hostile work environment, including hurtful epithets and intentionally using the wrong gender pronouns to refer to her." more >>

At the annual March for Life in Washington, DC on Friday, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO told those gathered outdoors that "feminism now shuts down conversation on college campuses and the media."
"If you are a pro-life man or heaven-forbid a conservative woman who doesn't believe the litanies of the left then you are a waging a 'war on women' or you a threat to women's health," said Fiorina. more >>
