The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments from a group of nuns who want to be exempted from having to indirectly provide birth control and abortion-inducing drugs to employees.

In their granting of certiorari on Friday, court opted to consolidate the cases, which include legal challenges by Priests for Life, Geneva College, East Texas Baptist University, and the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington. more >>
Despite the recent ruling by the U.S. Department of Education against a suburban Chicago high school, no school has to allow boys in girls locker rooms, or vice-versa. That's according to Matt Sharp, legal counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF — a group that offers free legal counsel to any school that adopts its policy on transgender issues and gets sued.
"We believe (our policy) is legally sound," Sharp said. "And, to show you how serious we are, if you adopt our policy and you get sued, the Alliance Defending Freedom is willing to represent you free of charge, so that you're not out-of-pocket for taking a stand on what is right and what common sense says we ought to do."
The ADF advocates separate changing facilities for transgender students and sent its sample policy to Palatine Township High School District 211, where a male student, who identifies as female, is demanding use of the girls locker room. more >>

The Obama administration has given a Chicago-area school district one month to allow a transgender student full use of a girls locker room or else it could be stripped of millions in federal funding.
The Civil Rights Office of the United States Department of Education has deemed that Township High School District 211 in Palatine, Illinois, has violated Title IX, a law that prohibits discrimination based on sex, because it will not grant an unidentified biological male student unconditional use of the girls locker room and showers.
After the unidentified student filed a complaint with the CRO in 2013, the CRO and school district have spent nearly two years negotiating the issue. more >>

Erica Campbell is more than equipped to give advice about balancing work and home life. As a wife, mother, Grammy Award-winning gospel singer and reality TV star — as well as the first lady of the California Worship Center church — she successfully juggles quite a few roles.
"You just take one day at a time. It is a lot, but I don't feel overwhelmed," the "Help" singer revealed to The Christian Post. "I feel like I'm busy, but if God gives you the vision, He will give you the provision to handle it. So I have a great staff of people. I don't do anything in my own strength or by myself."
While Campbell gives credit to the people who assist her, the wife and mother of three stresses the importance of balancing her home and work life in a simple way. more >>
