The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to block a lower court ruling requiring a Virginia school disctrict to base bathroom use upon gender identity highlights the "brazen lawlessness" of a North Carolina school district that seeks to do the same, says a Christian activist.
In a 5-3 decision, the highest court in the nation granted a stay on behalf of Gloucester County Public Schools of Virginia on Wednesday after a three judge panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated a lower court decision on behalf of the school district.
The Reverend Mark Creech of the North Carolina based Christian Action League released a statement about the Supreme Court's decision focusing on how the decision may influence the Charlotte Mecklenberg School District. more >>
Donald Trump recently signed a pledge to enforce anti-obscenity laws, a move internet safety activists are applauding even as Trump has built casinos with strip clubs.
The nonprofit, nonpartisan organization Enough Is Enough authored the 8-page document Trump signed. It calls for the appointment of an attorney general who will aggressively enforce laws like the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and a presidential commission to address the public health impact of porn on young people and families. The document also advocates for the establishment of corporate partnerships to curb internet-enabled sexual exploitation of children using the latest technological tools.
The Christian Post reached out to Enough is Enough president and CEO Donna Rice Hughes to inquire if Trump's move is indeed genuine given his past business dealings and appearance on the cover of Playboy. more >>
Coptic Christian children in Egypt have spoken out about the terror they have suffered in attacks by radical Muslims on the Christian community, as one of the nation's top bishops asks President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to provide more protection.
One 11-year-old girl recalled the night that angry Muslim residents torched her family's home in the village of Kom El Louf in Minya over suspicions that Christians were trying to use the building as a church.
"I was terrified. I saw men pour petrol on bundles of wood and throw them on our roof. When it began to fall on us, my father dragged us out," Susana Khalaf said in an interview with The Financial Times. more >>
Pop star Gwen Stefani has been talking about her relationship with God for years, which makes it no surprise that in a recent Instagram post the singer gushed about God answering her prayer after meeting a young boy who said Stefani's music helped him overcome being bullied.
"About three years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God everyday that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world — last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers," she wrote on instagram with the hashtags zero tolerance for bullies, one love, and this is what the truth feels like.
The 46-year-old fashionista met the boy after noticing a sign in the audience at her recent concert. The sign read, "My son was bullied from first to fifth grade. He would come home everyday upset but he'd go to his room, listen to your music and smile." more >>
Pope Francis has said that he's firmly opposed to the teaching of gender theory to children in schools, arguing that the idea that "everyone can choose their own sex" is the "exact opposite" of God's creation.
"Today, children are taught this at school: That everyone can choose their own sex. And why do they teach this? Because the books come from those people and institutions who give money," Francis told Polish bishops last week, according to Catholic Herald.
"God created man and woman; God created the world like this and we are doing the exact opposite." more >>
The American Family Association, the group behind the large-scale boycott against Target for its transgender bathroom policies, has warned parents to keep their children away from the retail giant for back-to-school shopping.
"For months, the American Family Association has worked hard to remind families that Target's policy means that a man can simply say he 'feels like a woman today' and enter the women's restroom, even if young girls or women are already present," said AFA President Tim Wildmon in a statement.
"Target's policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And headlines this summer have proven this is the case. Target's lack of action on this issue has proven that its main concern is not the safety of customers, but rather, political correctness." more >>
