Student’s ‘Virginity Rocks’ t-shirt banned from Arkansas middle school

Fayetteville 13-year-old Chloe Rubiano is saving herself for marriage, but school officials think she should keep that to herself. Robiano, a student at Ramay Junior High, purchased a t-shirt at a Christian festival that reads “Virginity Rocks” on the front, and “I’m loving my husband and I haven’t even met him” on the reverse, which sums up her beliefs on sex and marriage. But school officials banned the shirt and forced the teen to wear a school-issued gym shirt instead, because the Virginity Rocks message could lead to uncomfortable conversations about sex, 5News reports.

Meriam Ibrahim Says ‘Faith Was the Only Weapon’ She Had After Receiving Death Sentence for Christianity

After almost being martyred in Sudan for refusing to renounce her Christian faith a few months ago, global Christian icon Meriam Ibrahim, 27, is breathing easier now and smiling. “Faith means life. If you don’t have faith, you are not alive,” said Meriam Ibrahim when asked if she was afraid of dying for her faith.

Could IUDs Be the Next Great Weapon in the Battle Against Poverty?

There aren’t any simple solutions to poverty. But of the tools we have, making effective birth control cheap and easily available for low-income women is pretty much a no-brainer. Growing contraception use has already helped bring down America’s teen pregnancy rate to its lowest levels in more than half a century. And in a New York Times op-ed published this weekend, Isabel Sawhill of the Brookings Institution makes a compelling case that the humble IUD could help halt the ongoing rise of single mothers, who are disproportionately impoverished. Here’s Sawhill’s argument, slightly condensed. “Marriage is disappearing,” she writes, and out-of-wedlock childbirth is becoming the norm, with more than 40 percent of new mothers unmarried. Some conservatives say the government should respond by working harder to promote matrimony—but they have little idea of how to do it. Some liberals (including yours truly) say we need to accept widespread single motherhood as a fact of American life and expand the safety net to accommodate them—but that will, admittedly, cost money.

Rapist Will be Euthanized So He Doesn’t Have to Spend Life in Prison

You just can’t make this stuff up. Belgium is opposed to capital punishment. Belgium allows widespread euthanasia. A rapist/murderer–who once would have been subject to execution–now wants to die. He isn’t sick but wants euthanasia because he doesn’t want to spend life in prison. The Belgian judiciary said, “Sure!” So, a doctor will lethally inject a prisoner, but it won’t be considered capital punishment.

The rise and fall of Mars Hill Church

For years, Mars Hill founder Mark Driscoll’s style charmed many. He was dynamic and funny, with a potent mix of reverence for Jesus and irreverence for everything else. But behind the scenes, former church members said, Driscoll could be abusive and controlling. When the Christian radio host accused him of plagiarism, the quick-witted preacher sounded flabbergasted — and annoyed. “Man, I thought we’d have a better interview than this,” Mars Hill Church Pastor Mark Driscoll said. Driscoll’s heated November 2013 exchange with radio host Janet Mefferd would prove a crucial turning point in his explosive rise and recent fall, igniting a chain of events that would begin unraveling the Seattle megachurch he founded.

Catholic Cardinal McCarrick Embraces Islam

Catholic Cardinal Theodore McCarrick offered Islamic religious phrases and insisted that Islam shares foundational rules with Christianity, during a Sept. 10 press conference in D.C. “In the name of God, the Merciful and Compassionate,” McCarrick said as he introduced himself to the audience at a meeting arranged by the Muslim Public Affairs Council. That praise of the Islamic deity is an important phrase in Islam, is found more than 100 times in the Koran, and is akin to the Catholic prayer, ”In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
