A Christian student has filed a lawsuit against a Virginia academic institution over allegations that he was prohibited from preaching on campus.
Brought before the Eastern District of Virginia Newport News Division on March 13, Christian Parks alleges that TNCC stopped him from preaching at an on-campus plaza area.
In an extremely rare feat, according to college counselors, Kwasi Enin, a 17-year-old first-generation American from Shirley, N.Y., has been accepted to all eight elite Ivy League universities and he is receiving praise from across the United States.
"Congratulations to Kwesi Enin on being accepted to all eight of the Ivy League universities!" noted Gospel star Yolanda Adams in a post on her Facebook page Tuesday.
College counselors told USA Today that the feat is so rare among college applicants that very few dare to apply to all eight because they look for different qualities in their freshman class. Almost none are invited to attend all of them. more >>
Some criminal justice authorities in Delaware say they are surprised and puzzled after it was revealed that a Superior Court judge sentenced wealthy du Pont heir, Robert H. Richards IV, to probation after he confessed to raping his 3-year-old daughter, because she felt he "will not fare well" in prison.
According to a delawareonline report, Richards also allegedly sexually abused his infant son but authorities did not have enough evidence against him in that case.
Court records show that as part of a plea deal in the 2009 case, Richards confessed to abusing his daughter and Judge Jan Jurden recommended treatment over punishment for the hulking, physically healthy sexual offender who stands at 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs between 250 and 276 pounds. more >>
WOODBRIDGE, Va.— Millennials are leaving the Church because they not being given a "cause," said youth ministry leader Greg Stier.
"I feel like one of the reasons why Millennials are leaving the church is because Millennials are causal. They want a cause," said Stier, who's leading the "Reverse" conference tour. "Generally speaking, the Church has failed to give them a cause. Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 says 'Go and make disciples of all nations;' 'I'll give you a cause.'"
Stier, head of Dare 2 Share Ministries, is currently touring the country to equip thousands of youth to preach the Gospel. His latest stop was in the Washington, D.C. area, where he spoke to The Christian Post about Millennials. more >>

A Christian legal group has released a statement on behalf of a Christian school in Virginia regarding claims that one of its female students was condemned for dressing like a boy and sporting a short haircut. The school argues that the situation is "far beyond a simple" issue regarding the student's dress or haircut.
Liberty Counsel, a Christian nonprofit legal group, released a statement Wednesday of behalf of Timberlake Christian School located in Forest, Va., saying that the claims made by Doris and Carroll Thompson to a local media station regarding their great-granddaughter, Sunnie Kahle, were either "inaccurate … or were quoted out of context."
The great-grandparents previously told WSET-TV that they received a letter from the school saying their granddaughter didn't follow the school's "biblical standards" because she dressed like a boy and wore her hair short. Sunnie's story has gained national media coverage since it broke Tuesday. more >>
