Pastor Saeed Abedini says the Bible teaches that women should not have authority over men, warning there will be "chaos" if the biblical model is ignored in the leadership of the home, church and country.
Abedini, who was released as a hostage in January after being held captive by the Iranian regime for three years, quoted 1 Timothy 2:12 in a Facebook post on Thursday, which states: "And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence."
The pastor, who is now the director at Saeed Ministries, argued that men should be the head of the family, the Church, and the country. more >>
The Ontario Court of Appeal ruled Wednesday that a Christian University can be denied accreditation because of its opposition to homosexuality.
In a ruling released Wednesday, a three judge panel of the high court concluded that Trinity Western University's "community covenant," which bans a host of behaviors, discriminates against LGBT people and that the Law Society of Upper Canada was justified in denying accreditation.
"TWU wants to establish a law school. Although members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer ('LGBTQ') community may apply to the proposed law school, they will not be admitted unless they are willing to sign and adhere to TWU's community covenant," read the ruling. more >>
The United Kingdom's referendum to leave the European Union was a global shocker, as more than 17 million people voted to leave the European bureaucracy.
Commonly called "Brexit," the fallout to the vote was immediate as Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation and the succession of a new leader by September.

The high court refused to grant an appeal in the case of Stormans v. Wiesman, which involves Christian pharmacists suing Washington over a law mandating that pharmacies provide drugs like Plan B and Ella despite conscience objections.
In a Tuesday National Review column, French called the Supreme Court "pitiful" for refusing to hear Stormans' appeal. more >>
While most sports fans will remember former University of Tennessee coach Pat Summitt as the all-time winningest coach in NCAA women's basketball history, the fallen legend will be remembered by those closest to her as a woman who built her life's successes around her love for Christ.
The 64-year-old Summitt, who led the Lady Volunteers to 1,098 wins and eight national titles over her 38-year coaching career, lost her five-year battle with Alzheimer's Tuesday morning and the news of her death spread sorrow and grief all over the world.
Even though many will remember Summitt as being the instrumental figure who helped push women's college basketball out from the shadows of the men, she leaves behind a legacy of devotion, loyalty and faith that might get lost in the translation of such a profound and influential career. more >>
The U.S. Supreme Court denied a hearing for pharmacists appealing a Washington State law mandating that they provide abortion-inducing drugs despite their religious objections.
