In a letter sent to schools last week, President Obama explained that longtime bans on Creationism in public schools violated Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Title VII specifically prohibits among other things employer discrimination on the basis of religion and demands that employers give proper accommodation for religious beliefs.
"While until five minutes ago no one considered Title VII applicable to teaching Creationism, we realize that laws are not set in stone and in fact need to develop — but definitely not evolve — with the times," read the letter. more >>
Lots of bad news out there lately. But not today. Today we'll talk about a big win for religious freedom.
On May 15th, the Supreme Court handed a big victory to the Little Sisters of the Poor and other Christian organizations that refused to go along with the HHS contraceptive mandate.
Not that you would know this if all you had to go on was the reaction of the mainstream media. When they weren't downplaying the impact of the court's three-page ruling remanding the cases to the lower courts, they were all-but-ignoring the story. more >>
A majority of parents of school-aged children oppose President Barack Obama's recent directive allowing transgender students to use the bathroom of their choice, according to a recent poll.
Rasmussen Reports conducted a national telephone survey and found that 51 percent of parents opposed the federal government's recent directive, versus 33 percent in favor and 16 percent undecided.
African-American activists throughout the United States are slamming the Obama administration for comparing North Carolina's recently passed transgender law to white-supremacist laws that once permitted racism and segregation.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch made headlines last week when she chastised North Carolina's controversial transgender bathroom law, which protects businesses and other places of public accommodation from being coerced by local governments into making women's bathrooms, locker rooms and showers available to men who identify as women and vice versa.
Since North Carolina's law also requires people to use bathrooms in government buildings that match their birth sex and not the gender in which they choose to identify, Lynch announced on May 9 that the United States Justice Department filed a lawsuit against the state over its refusal to cave to an ultimatum the department sent three days earlier calling for the state not to enforce the law. more >>
President Obama's done lost his mind. He's just flushed the civil rights of men and women, boys and girls, to pee in peace and shower without having naked, sexually confused or sexually predatory members of the opposite sex ogling them, or intentionally exposing their genitalia for a cheap thrill.
Reports Fox News: "The Obama administration has sent a letter to every public school district in the country telling them to allow transgender students [meaning students pretending to be the opposite sex] to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their chosen gender identity, as opposed to their birth certificate. …
"While the letter does not have the force of law, it does warn that schools that do not abide by the administration's interpretation of civil rights law may face lawsuits or loss of federal aid." more >>
This election year we have heard political candidates saying, "I don't believe there's any constitutional protection for the unborn" and — in an admission by Hillary Clinton that stunned both sides of the abortion debate — "The unborn person doesn't have constitutional rights."
Infuriating, isn't it? Even her pro-abortion allies realize how admitting the existence of an "unborn person" damages their cause, which includes partial birth abortion and abortion on demand through the ninth month.
But does the U.S. Constitution grant rights to lives in the womb? If so, why does it matter? more >>
