A Kansas public middle school has prevented a seventh grader from passing out and posting religious fliers inviting fellow students to join her for a prayer session at the school's flagpole before class.
Alliance Defending Freedom, a group that advocates for religious expression, announced earlier this month that it has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the unnamed student at Robert E. Clark Middle School, located in the suburbs of Kansas City.
The lawsuit claims that the Bonner Springs/Edwardsville Unified School District policy, which prohibits students from distributing religious materials on school property, violates the First and Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution, as well as the Kansas Preservation of Religious Freedom Act. more >>

Tis the season for, well, resolutions.
And when it comes to resolutions we tend to think of a limited amount of categories. These categories can range from exercising off our newly acquired egg-nog induced fat layers to doing a complete financial makeover (i.e. eliminating debt from that overcharged Christmas credit card.)
While Tony Horton and Dave Ramsey may be able help you in these two areas, I cannot. But what I can do is challenge youth leaders who happened to be reading this blog to make an entirely different kind of resolution. Here it is, more >>
After hearing what she has to say, you may call her "little miss independent." That's exactly how she handles the situation she is in. When asked if she needs help, she takes matters into her own hands, and it is adorable!
This adorable girl is confident enough to take on the world. When sitting in her car seat, her daddy asks if she wants help because she's having trouble unbuckling her seatbelt. But, she tells him "worry about yourself" in the cutest way. Then tells him to hurry and drive, and not to worry about her. Watching this come out of her mouth is PRICELESS. From start to finish, you will have a HUGE smile on your face. Her dad handles the situation very well considering the trouble she is having.
Be sure to SHARE this with all the people you know and brighten up their day! more >>
With help from a Dominican-Pakistani priest, an American couple has bought a new home for three Pakistani children whose Christian parents were burned alive by an angry mob of Muslims in the Punjab Province after being accused of blasphemy in November.

After being accused of ripping pages out of the Koran, Bibi and Masih were tortured, had their legs broken and were thrown into a brick kiln by a mob of about 500 to 600 Muslims in the town of Kot Radha Kishan on Nov. 4. more >>
Alice Cooper recently shed light on his Christian faith while also dismissing "celebrity Christianity," meaning his music is not intended to preach the Gospel.
Although Cooper is nicknamed "The Godfather of Shock Rock" and includes props like guillotines, electric chairs, and fake blood on his stage sets, the musician is a devout Christian. In a self-deprecating interview with The Hard Music magazine, Cooper denounced "celebrity Christianity," reminding his fans that he is "nothing more than" a singer, not an expert on Christianity.
"It's really easy to focus on Alice Cooper and not on Christ," the singer said. "I'm a rock singer. I'm nothing more than that. I'm not a philosopher. I consider myself low on the totem pole of knowledgeable Christians. So, don't look for answers from me." more >>
