New Jersey's Superior Court will soon hear arguments regarding two motions in a lawsuit leveled against a Jewish group that offers therapy to change a person's sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual.
Two motions were filed on behalf of JONAH International in its legal battle against the Montgomery, Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center, which is known for labeling faith-based organizatons as "hate groups" due to their opposition to homosexuality and pro-gay agendas.
The SPLC also filed parallel motions against JONAH on behalf of its clients, which Arthur Goldberg, co-director of JONAH, described as "misguided motions [that] are based on the false assumption that homosexuality is a 'normal variant of human sexuality' and that sexual orientation cannot 'change.'" more >>
A federal court in Illinois has ordered a community college to allow two activists to distribute anti-homosexuality leaflets on its campus, after the school maintained that the individuals could not distribute such materials that were deemed "inconsistent with the philosophy, goals and mission of the college."
Last January, Wayne Lela and John McCartney sent an application to Waubonsee Community College seeking permission to pass out leaflets on its campus promoting their Heterosexuals Organized for a Moral Environment, a group organized by Lela that advocates that homosexuality is immoral. After submitting the required details about the leaflets to the administration, the administration sent them back a letter denying their request later that month.
Although Lela and McCartney had been previously granted permission in 2003 and 2005 to pass out the promotional items for the organization on the WCC campus, the school's letter of denial in January of 2014 stated that group's message conflicted with the message of the school and that school could not allow them to hand out their leaflets on its campus. more >>

Seven homeschool children, whose parents claim were unjustly removed from their custody by the state of Arkansas earlier this month on child abuse allegations, still remain in the state's custody after a court ruled there was probable cause to keep the children until after the parents could be judged in a mid-Feburary trial.
On Jan. 12, state and local police officers removed the seven Stanley children from their parents' home after conducting a five-hour warranted search in light of alleged child abuse complaints filed by the Stanleys' neighbors.
After the police found a legal but somewhat dangerous substance called Miracle Mineral Solution — which is known to be a remedy for cancer and AIDS — in the home, the police took the seven children and told the parents that they would be returned after 72 hours, according to their father, Hal Stanley. more >>
Editor's note: This is the final part of a two-part interview with rapper, pastor, and author Trip Lee about his latest projects, his thoughts on U.S. Christianity, his new church plant, and his perspectives on race as a black man in America. Read part one here: Rapper Trip Lee, Self-Described 'Boring' Guy, Talks Finding Inspiration in Malcolm Gladwell, CS Lewis, and Jay-Z.
It is an "irresponsible argument" for critics of the claim that police officers are biased in their targeting of and interactions with black men to point to so-called black-on-black crime, according to Christian rapper, pastor, author, and thought leader Trip Lee. That only deflects from the real issue, he said in a recent interview in which he comments on race, the church, and how he identifies with Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
"I think what that shows is often an unwillingness to talk about this issue," Lee explained in a Jan. 14 phone interview with The Christian Post. "We'll do anything to avoid talking about this issue. How can I deflect? How can I blame-shift? How can I act like this isn't an issue itself? If I just point out the fact that black people hurt each other, too, then we can ignore the fact that other people harm black people. I think it's an irresponsible argument." more >>
