For the first time ever, a Muslim student has been elected by the Georgetown University student body to serve as the Jesuit school's student association president.
As reported by The Hoya — Georgetown's oldest student-run newspaper — Enushe Khan, a student from Dubai, will become the first Muslim to become the Georgetown University Student Association president.
Khan's activism on campus began when she was a freshman at the Washington D.C. institution and she decided to run for election to the GUSA senate after noticing that there were not enough foods allowed under Islamic dietary laws on campus. more >>
After a family television watchdog scrutinized ABC's new series "Of Kings and Prophets" last week for sexual and violent content, the production's showrunner now argues that faith-based viewers enjoy watching sex on TV programs as much as secular viewers.
The series came under fire last week when the Parents Television Council called on 200 top television advertisers to stay away from the show because of its high propensity for sex and violence.

A pro-life student group at the University of New Mexico is countering the now typical college "sex week" that promotes such things as BDSM on many American campuses by hosting a week-long series of events that showcase accurate information about sex, pregnancy and sexual assault.
Known as "Real Sex Week" organized by Students for Life UNM, events started Monday and include workshops on STI education, on-campus parental support, and information on the harms of abortion.
Sade Patterson, president of Students for Life UNM, told The Christian Post that Real Sex Week is meant to contrast with the past two sex week events held on the campus. more >>
The health of a nation's soul can be measured by how it treats its youth.
Do we protect, educate, and carefully mold them into responsible adults? When they behave badly, do we prematurely thrust them into adulthood or do we engage in the vital work of restoration and rehabilitation?
Different nations answer these questions differently. In my role as director of Pepperdine Law School's Global Justice Program, I am aware of best practices in dozens of countries. This global perspective also provides me a window into the weaknesses and failings of justice systems around the world, including our own. more >>
Christians can't take a "casual" approach to their faith in God, the Rev. Billy Graham said in a post this week.
Responding to a question on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's website, the 97-year-old religious leader said Christians must be completely dedicated and involved in their faith.
Graham explains in the BGEA "My Answers" post that while many are be tempted to stop attending church so they can focus on other weekend activities, such an approach to Christianity and Christ's love is not sustainable in the long run. more >>
