In 2002 a group of pediatricians and related professionals split from the 86-year-old American Academy of Pediatrics over the organization's support for abortion and homosexual adoption. Some 14 years later, now called the American College of Pediatricians, the group is challenging the AAP on transgenderism.
In a biting statement last month, the American College of Pediatricians warned legislators and educators that conditioning children to accept transgenderism as normal is child abuse, as transgenderism is classified as a mental illness.
"The American College of Pediatricians urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts — not ideology — determine reality," they warned. more >>

News 6 reported that an emergency resolution was reached on Tuesday in a 4-1 vote, and the rule will take immediate affect.
The issue came about following a complaint by the father of a student who said his son's privacy rights were being violated due to a classmate — who was born female but now identifies as a male — who was using the boy's bathroom. more >>
Rapper Lecrae warns fans about two major problems people face when they're on a spiritual high, which he describes in detail in his new book, Unashamed.
The Reach Records founder and Academy Award winner took to Facebook on Tuesday to share an excerpt from Unashamed, which is set to release on May 3. In the snippet the rapper describes his initial reaction to getting saved and what he has since learned from his behavior:

With the release of his debut album The River, contemporary Christian artist Jordan Feliz is winning over the hearts of many with his mainstream appeal and passion for worship.
Feliz started out as a part of secular band that was steadily growing an audience and making a name for itself, but as he began to pray about his future he felt unsure of where he was heading in the group and said God started closing doors. Soon after, still remaining prayerful, he was asked to serve part time as the worship leader of a church he felt drawn to.
Within a few months of being obedient to God's shift for his life, Feliz received a phone call from an old friend asking him if he would fly out to Nashville and write and record a few songs, all expenses paid. While in music city, the singer fell in love and he and his wife prayed for about a year until he heard from God that he was to move there and make music for the church. more >>
