    If utopian tyrants whose vision for the world encompasses only theirs are continued to be allowed, like locusts, to devour every institution in their path, there won’t be even one left to provide an alternative worldview to anyone enlightened enough to seek it.Recently, at a weekly neighborhood Bible study, I was surprised to hear a friend describe a letter sent to a church that hosts a Christ-centered program she uses to homeschool her kids called “Classical Conversations” (CC). The unsigned letter threatened the church with loss of their non-profit status for hosting a for-profit company. When the woman, a...

    Assignment asks middle schoolers 'How many slaves would equal 4 white people?' KANNAPOLIS, N.C. A local middle school social studies assignment is raising serious concerns. Students at Kannapolis Middle School were asked how many slaves would be needed to equal at least four white people. The question was asked as part of a lesson on the Three-Fifths Compromise, which is a 1700's law to count slaves as less than white people.

    The school board of District 211 in Illinois voted last week, in a 5 2 decision, to allow biological males into the female locker room at Palatine High School. The board said that all students should be treated and supported in a manner consistent with their gender identity. This support apparently necessitates obliterating the privacy and safety of every girl at the school. A student named Nova Maday, a biological male who identifies as transgender, filed a lawsuit in 2017. The lawsuit came after a Department of Education mandate in 2015 forced Palatine High to allow boys like himself...

    Warning: Article contains graphic sexual content November 6, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) When I consider the long-term well-being of our children and what they are taught at school, my first thought always goes to pole-dancing. How about you? Planned Parenthood apparently thinks this way. A fundraiser called Femme Fest is being held in Olympia, Washington by the Northwest and Hawaii Planned Parenthood political action group, and its labeled a sex education information evening. The timing is ironic in relation to a recent school board vote in the nearby Battle Ground school district that rejected pornographic, pro-abortion comprehensive sex education via a...

    GENEVA, Switzerland, September 18, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) -- Switzerlands top court ruled that parents do not have a right to homeschool their children.

School authorities rejected the application and a cantonal court threw out the mothers appeal. When she brought her case to the Federal Court, the mother held that the appeal courts decision was tantamount to a ban on private instruction at home, thus violating a constitutional right to privacy and...
