A third-grade teacher and an assistant principal at a North Carolina elementary school have resigned after facing strong backlash over the teacher's decision to read a book about two gay princes falling in love and getting married aloud to his class without first seeking parental consent.
In April, Omar Currie read the book King & King, a tale about two princes who get married, to his third grade class at Efland-Cheeks Elementary School after one of his students told him about how he was insulted by other kids in the class who called him gay.
Are we all naturally greedy? Most of us have all heard the saying "finders keepers" before, but does that always hold true? In this experiment, children are put in a situation where a wallet falls in front of them and they have to make a choice. What do you think they do?
Some of the personality traits we have are genetic. Others are learned, or just not so clear cut. Many people believe that greed may just be a part of life. Red Cross of Japan certainly doesn't think that is true, and they set out to prove it with this simple experiment. They use children to prove a point that we can all give back to those who have lost something. We all learn a very valuable lesson by watching this video.

As the Islamic State continues to recruit and train children to become the next generation of jihadi fighters in the terror group's militant ranks, ISIS has allegedly kidnapped over 1,200 children from northern Iraq in recent weeks and has shipped them off to a jihadi training facility in Mosul.
Iraq's al-Sumaria satellite TV network reported on Monday that the Kurdish Democratic Party spokesman in Mosul, Saeed Mamouzini, stated that ISIS recently kidnapped at least 1,227 children from various neighborhoods in Mosul, the city that has been the group's Iraqi stronghold since it seized the town in June 2014.
Mamouzini warned that ISIS has taken the abducted children to one of its "Cubs of the Caliphate" jihad indoctrination training camps on the eastern outskirts of the city, where ISIS often brainwashes children with its extremist theology and trains them to carry out terror and suicide attacks. more >>

After being officially de-recognized by America's largest university system because it required its student leaders to be professing Christians, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is once again a recognized student group in the California State University system after conversations between the two sides has led to a mutual "understanding."
With 23 chapters on 19 Cal State campuses, CSU officially stripped InterVarsity, an international campus ministry with 985 chapters across the globe, of its official campus recognition last September because of the group's unwillingness to comply with an "all-comers" campus policy that prohibited the organization from requiring that its student leaders must be Christian.
In a press release last Friday, InterVarsity announced that after on-going conversations between the ministry's leadership and CSU officials, the ministry will be re-recognized as an official student group and will have access to use campus buildings and student government funding without having to compromise the organization's Christian values. more >>
