I don’t think that was...

That’s right, on a weekend when the best college football stars will be transitioning to the next phase of their careers, the NFL will be advertising for a company that supports transitioning of the worst kind. It's a match made in progressive heaven! The NFL Draft will...

    A conflict over what it means to be Christian is forcing a school in Kansas City, Missouri, to close. Urban Christian Academy is a private, K-8 school with an enrollment of 100 that describes itself as providing "a tuition-free, high-quality, Christ-centered education for low-income students." The school’s mission statement has always stressed inclusivity in general terms, noting that following Jesus "opens up doors and makes room at the table." But last year it added a paragraph to its website, which read in part, "We are an affirming school. We stand with the LGBTQIA+ community and believe in their holiness. We...
