Mixed Gender Dorm Rooms Are Gaining Acceptance

March 17

They weren't looking to make a political statement or to be pioneers of gender liberation. Each just wanted a familiar, decent roommate rather than a stranger after their original roommates left to study abroad.

That's how Pitzer College sophomores Kayla Eland, female, and Lindon Pronto, male, began sharing a room this semester on Holden Hall's second floor. They are not a couple and neither is gay. They are just compatible roommates in a new, sometimes controversial, dormitory option known as gender-neutral housing that is gaining support at some colleges in California and across the nation.

Liberalism Takes A Hit In Texas Textbooks Debate

March 17

So far, so good - that's the message from conservatives as the Texas State Board of Education works to set curriculum standards for social studies that could have a national effect within the next decade.

Decisions made by the Board affect textbook content nationwide because the Lone Star State is one of the biggest clients for school book publishers.  Jonathan Saenz, director of legislative affairs for Liberty Institute, testified at the Board hearing along with numerous concerned teachers and parents.

D.C. Bill Would Require Teachers to be Fired for Sex with Students

March 17

In the District, it's not illegal for a public school teacher to have sex with a student who is older than 16, the age of consent in the city.

Emergency legislation sponsored by D.C. Council member Kwame Brown (D-At Large) would go part of the way toward addressing that issue, by requiring the school system to fire any teacher who is found to have engaged in a sex act with a student, regardless of the student's age.

Girls Scouts Allow Planned Parenthood to Distribute Literature at UN Advocating Casual Sex

March 17

I never imagined the day would come when I would have to issue a content alert when talking about Girl Scout literature, but sadly that day has arrived.

The Girl Scouts celebrate their 98th anniversary today (March 12), having been founded by Juliette Low, the former fiancee of Sir Robert Baden Powell, the founder of the Boy Scouts in 1912.

Here is the longstanding Girl Scout oath: "On my honor, I will try: to do my duty to God and my country, to help other people at all times, to obey the Girl Scout laws."

Well, the new and improved World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides hosted a panel at the UN this week. The first thing organizers did was kick all the adults out of the room so that Planned Parenthood could distribute - to adolescent girls, mind you - a brochure entitled, "Healthy, Happy and Hot."

National 40 Days for Life Effort Up To 298 Babies Saved from Abortion

March 17

Every day, we update a number on the top of the 40 Days for Life web page. Every day, that number gets larger and larger. Every day, I am humbled and amazed at what God is doing during this campaign of prayer and fasting.

As of today, that number has grown to 298 babies and their mothers spared from abortion -- that we know of!

People praying at a 40 Days for Life vigil outside an abortion center in Mission Hills, California watched as a woman arrived for an abortion appointment. Volunteers spoke to her briefly as she walked toward the building.

"The woman seemed upset with what she was about to do," said Patti, "but went in anyway."

When she came out a bit later, a pro-life counselor asked if she had changed her mind. "No," she said. "I forgot my Medicare card at home and I have to go get it.

The counselor responded, "You know, that's just God telling you that you're not supposed to be here.

"The woman acknowledged the comment," Patti said,"and left crying. She did not return!"

House Democrats Don't Have Votes Yet for Senate's Pro-Abortion Health Care Bill

March 17

The key lieutenant of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who is responsible for heading up the arm twisting campaign to push the Senate pro-abortion health care bill admitted today that Democrats do not have the votes in the House yet to push it through. That gives pro-life groups further opportunity to lobby members.

This week, Democrats will move forward with a plan LifeNews.com outlined on Thursday that has a "shell" or reconciliation bill moving through the committee process.

Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, the House Majority Whip, told NBC's "Meet the Press" that there are not enough votes to meet the 216-vote majority they need.

The first online private high school for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered youths has opened for business, but so far has found limited interest.

GLBTQ Online High School began enrolling students in January and now has six students -- none from Minnesota -- said David Glick, founder and executive director. (The "Q" stands for those who might be "questioning" their identity.)
