A school district in the Commonwealth of Virginia passed an ordinance that renounces President Barack Obama's directive for public schools to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms and showers of their choice.
The Grayson County School Board voted unanimously last week to adopt the ordinance, which states that students can only use the restroom of their biological sex.
Grayson Superintendent Kelly Wilmore told LifeSite News in an interview published Monday that the ordinance was supported by the whole community, including Democrats. more >>
Ah, the "good old days," that President Obama took a sarcastic swipe at during his recent commencement speech at Rutgers University when he said that America's "good old days weren't that great."
Certainly he misread his teleprompter.
Sure, we've experienced enormous advances in things like technology and medicine, but the "good old days" aren't so bad, especially compared to what's happening today. more >>
As United States lawmakers weigh legislation that would commit U.S. support to Christian militias in Iraq and Syria, the Primate of the Chaldean Church warns that arming Christian militias fighting against the Islamic State is a "bad idea."
The National Defense Authorization Act that was already passed by the House and is caught up in the Senate would commit the U.S. government to provide defense articles, services and training to tribal and local security forces who are "committed to protecting highly vulnerable ethnic and religious minority communities, such as Yezidis, Christian, Assyrian and Turkmen."
Although there have been reports highlighting the efforts of Christian militias dedicated to protecting their homelands, Chaldean Patriarch Louis Raphael I Sako told Fides News Agency that there are really no actual Christian militias and asserted that the U.S. should not arm any so-called Christian militias. more >>
Even in this day in age where people seem so set in their ways, there is room for people to change their minds on a hot-button issue.
Back in February, former second-trimester abortion performer Dr. Anthony Levatino, released a series of videos graphically describing the procedure he used to perform.
One of them focused on the practice of Dilation and Evacuation abortion, which is said to be the most common second trimester abortion procedure. more >>
Pastor Perry Noble of NewSpring megachurch in South Carolina has revealed that he received an invitation to attend the highly publicized meeting of 500 evangelical leaders with Donald Trump in New York on June 21, but is turning it down.
Noble explained in an article on his website that he initially thought Trump was a "political fad that would pass the wind," but like many others turned out to be wrong, as the billionaire businessman looks set to capture the Republican presidential nomination.
"Now evangelical leaders say they want to meet with him — almost as if he has to prove himself to us," the pastor noted, referring to Trump agreeing to meet with 500 top evangelical and social conservative leaders in a closed-door event in June in New York, to ascertain what he has to offer to the country. more >>
Since my open letter to Donald Trump on August 27th, 2015, I've raised many concerns about his candidacy, feeling strongly that there were other Republican candidates who were far more qualified for the job.
And I urged voters to consider these other candidates, warning that Donald Trump could turn out to be a National Enquirer candidate for a Jerry Springer generation, a vulgar and mean-spirited reality TV star who would stop at nothing to be elected.
But now that he's the presumptive Republican nominee and his only real competition looks to be Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, candidates I couldn't possibly vote for because of their staunchly pro-abortion, pro-LGBT activist positions (among other things), I want to offer Mr. Trump some words of wisdom — words that could radically change his life if he would only take heed. more >>
