He's not yet old enough to cast a vote or drive a car, but 12-year-old Georgia native and middle school student CJ Pearson has become a conservative darling after passionately defending former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's claim that he doesn't believe President Barack Obama loves America in a YouTube video that has amassed more than 1 million views since Saturday.
In fact, Pearson, who's worked on many conservative political campaigns in Georgia, according to his Facebook profile, went further to explain why he believes the president has "downright hatred" for the United States.
"I don't want to be politically correct. I don't care about being politically correct at this point," said young Pearson in the 3-minute video. "President Obama, you don't love America." more >>
Jackie Hill-Perry, a spoken word and hip-hop artist whose talents and unique testimony have garnered her popularity and praise, recently shared her story of leaving the gay lifestyle with televangelist Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network.
"Growing up, Jackie was molested by a family friend, bullied in school, and fatherless, which accompanied with (an) inherent separation from God, led her into a lifestyle of rebellion, homosexuality, drug use, porn addiction, and everything wicked," according to her online biography.
But, the biography continues, her sins did not keep God from loving her. more >>
Editors Note: Joey Forcherio, a senior at Christian Brothers High School in Memphis, TN wrote this letter to a classmate he had never met who was one of two students recently killed in a tragic automobile accident last week. I wrote a column about the two young men who lost their lives and how their parents and classmates must deal with their passing. I believe Joey's letter speaks volumes from classmates who were touched by their deaths.
I don't remember ever talking to you before. We never played on a team together. We never had a class together. I am not even sure if you knew my name. That is what is so confounding to me about my mourning; we never met, but yet I am deeply, penetratingly hurt by your death. more >>
Campus housing specifically for 15 alternative sexualities, including sadomasochists, is acceptable, but fraternities that just allow men are not, at Wesleyan University.
Wesleyan University housing has an option for students who want to live with others identifying with one of 15 categories — LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM. The university's inclusiveness excludes, however, male-only fraternities.
Delta Kappa Epsilon sued Wesleyan University after the liberal arts college ordered all of its fraternities to admit women, charging sexual discrimination and false and deceptive practices. more >>

Texas megachurch pastor Matt Chandler says the way the world defines marriage is "unbiblical" and "unhealthy", yet far too many young Christians are following after the cultural standards of love. This reality prompted the Village Church leader to offer biblical insights on dating, courtship and marriage from the Song of Solomon in his recently released book Mingling of Souls.
The book is also a reflection of how God transformed his marriage of 15 years to his wife, Lauren. "The first seven years of my marriage were extremely difficult years and then the last eight have been really blessed. I wanted to talk about relationships in a way that was honest and straight forward," said Chandler.
In the interview below (edited for clarity), Chandler explains why the notion of finding "the one" is a myth and reveals what couples should do to keep the passion in their marriage. more >>
