    A nine-year old cheerleader stood alone at a football game as the fathers of her squadmates lifted their daughters onto their shoulders. Addie Rodriguez was alone because her father Abel is undergoing military training in California. “It was truly unfortunate to see your daughter standing out there being the only one without their father, knowing why he’s away. It’s not just an absentee parent. He’s serving our country,” Addie’s mom Alexis Perry-Rodriguez said. Enter San Antonio teenager Matthew Garcia. And what an entrance. Seeing Addie’s situation, Matthew — a senior at Central Catholic High School — vaulted two fences as...

    A school has been criticised after punishing a whole cheerleading squad after a male student said he was distracted by their short skirts. The student at Timpview High School had “impure” thoughts after seeing the squad in their uniforms, People reports, and so his mother wrote to the school and complained. After the formal complaint was made, rather than helping the male student to deal with the thoughts, the Utah school’s administrators appear to have punished the whole cheerleading squad. Administrators told the cheerleading coach at the school, who told the 44-strong cheerleading squad that they should not wear their...

    Millions of American teenagers are at risk of running out of food or don't have access to affordable, healthy food. Some of them are so desperate, they're selling their bodies and committing crimes to go to jail to ensure regular meals, according to an Urban Institute study. Breaking down the numbers The study found at least 6.8 million people were "food insecure," meaning they didn't have reliable access to affordable, healthy food. Another 4 million were in "marginally food secure" households, where the "threat of running out of food is real." All of the 10 communities surveyed in focus groups...

The 6th and 9th commandments are ignored while sexually explicit images and immoral videos are used as springboards for discussion.
