A television watchdog group is calling for the cancellation of a TV show that features couples (both gay and straight) who have sex in an enclosed box and then walk out in front of a live studio audience to discuss their sexual likes, dislikes and relationship issues with a three-person panel.
The Parents Television Council has created a petition calling for the WE cable network to cancel the "Sex Box" TV show, which is scheduled to debut on Friday, Feb. 27.
"This new reality show far exceeds the limits of decency when its participants enter a soundproof box on stage, have sex, and then discuss their 'intimacy issues' with a panel of so-called experts," reads the petition. more >>

Even though her village was seized by the Islamic State and she's now living a rough life in an unfinished mall in Kurdish-protected Northern Iraq, a displaced Christian refugee child is asking God to "forgive" the ISIS militants.
After ISIS seized most of the Mosul region of Iraq last June, over 400 mostly Christian displaced Iraqi families from the villages of Qaraqosh, Bartella and Kharamles descended upon the Kurdish capital of Erbil to live in a half-built mall in the in the Christian neighborhood of Ainkawa.
As the families had picked up and fled their villages in a hurry before the ISIS militants reached their towns, the families could only afford to bring bare necessities and are now living in the mall without much more than the mattresses, blankets and other handouts they receive from humanitarian organizations. more >>

French prosecutors said on Monday that five teenagers are in police custody on suspicion of vandalizing hundreds of Jewish graves.
Over the weekend, nearly 300 tombs in the region of Sarre-Union in Alsace were defaced by the teens, who range in age from 15 to 17. The youngest suspected vandal came forward after seeing the public outcry and furor, authorities said.
"Apparently, he was very, very affected by the scale of the reaction to this affair, including the statements from the highest state authorities," prosecutor Philippe Vannier told reporters. "We don't know the motive of these adolescents who don't have past criminal records and we don't know of any ideological convictions that could explain their behavior. They are very, very shocked by the turn of events." more >>
