A North Carolina school district that was planning to enact rules on transgender usage of public facilities that violated state law is putting these plans on hold.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools announced Thursday that they were halting the implementation of a policy that would allow students to use the restrooms and locker rooms of their chosen gender identity rather than their biological sex.
School Superintendent Ann Clark said in a statement that the decision was influenced by U.S. Supreme Court's decision earlier this week to put a stay on a ruling that favored a female transgender student suing a Virginia school district to allow her to use the men's room. more >>
If Hillary Clinton becomes president, Karisa Johns Smith says she "will probably cry." Smith, a so-called "Jesus feminist" and doctoral candidate at Wheaton College, views a future President Hillary Clinton as an exemplary model for the next generation of women. "There's finally somebody for my daughters," Smith told Christianity Today managing editor Katelyn Beaty, " — that you grow up believing you can be what you see."
If Hillary becomes president, I may cry too — but not tears of joy. Hillary's far-Left social and economic policies would devastate this nation. I couldn't care less if our next president is a woman; my main concern is whether he or she will govern well.
But, if our next president is going to be a woman, I would want someone who would inspire our daughters to live with integrity and honor. Hillary does the exact opposite. As Helen Wickert, CEO of courageousmotherhood.net, wrote in an open letter to Hillary last week: "(Y)ou have shown not only my daughter but all daughters — and not only in this country but globally — that in order to, in your words, 'shatter the glass ceiling,' you have to lie, cheat, abuse, insult, bully, and ignore. You threaten others along with disrespecting yourself." more >>
The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to block a lower court ruling requiring a Virginia school disctrict to base bathroom use upon gender identity highlights the "brazen lawlessness" of a North Carolina school district that seeks to do the same, says a Christian activist.
In a 5-3 decision, the highest court in the nation granted a stay on behalf of Gloucester County Public Schools of Virginia on Wednesday after a three judge panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated a lower court decision on behalf of the school district.
The Reverend Mark Creech of the North Carolina based Christian Action League released a statement about the Supreme Court's decision focusing on how the decision may influence the Charlotte Mecklenberg School District. more >>
The Washington Post's credibility, to the extent it still has any, is on the line. Jonathan Capehart cannot help himself. One shoddy article has now given rise to a second. Both reveal that he does not check his sources, and even more disturbingly, since he is on the editorial board of the Washington Post, he does not care about the facts.
On July 7, 2016, Capehart published his first missive purporting to list "enemies of equality." He included a chart created by the Paul Singer and Tim Gill funded Freedom for All Americans, allegedly showing a "vast right wing conspiracy" of interconnected groups and people. The chart shows the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) funding Liberty Counsel and Liberty Counsel representing Kim Davis.
There is big problem — the chart is wrong, and so is Capehart. He ignored numerous attempts to contact him. more >>
Christian NFL player Benjamin Watson has opened up about his views on abortion and how it factors into race relations in America today.
In an hour-long interview for the San Diego-based Turning Point Pregnancy Resource Center's blog interview series, Watson, a devout Christian who often speaks out publicly on a wide range of racial and political issues, answered questions on whether race plays into the abortion debate, whether men should have any say over whether women get an abortion, and why he is pro-life.
Controversial televangelist Pat Robertson believes Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump needs to focus on the economy and stop his back-and-forth with the parents of a fallen Muslim-American soldier.
Trump has garnered national attention for his attacks on Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the parents of an Army captain killed in Iraq.
During an episode of the long-running series "The 700 Club" that ran on Tuesday, Robertson argued that Trump should focus on the economy instead, saying, "the Lord has handed Mr. Trump a gift of 1.2 percent GDP growth, which is absolutely pathetic and horrible." more >>
