Former InterVarsity Leader at Vanderbilt: We Were “Kicked Off Campus for Being the Wrong Kind of Christians”

Since 2011, Vanderbilt University has upheld an "all comers" policy when it comes to regulating leadership in student groups on campus.

His friend posted the video on YouTube under the title "How Not To React When Your Child Tells You He's Gay."(Warning: This video is disturbing and contains graphic language, and it may be triggering to some.)

Florida Mayor Kicks Atheist Out of City Commission Meeting After He Doesn’t Stand for the Invocation or Pledge

At yesterday's meeting of the Winter Garden City Commissioners (in Florida), Mayor John Rees announced that they would begin with an invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance, as many government meetings do, and asked everyone to stand up.John Thoreau, an atheist, remained seated. Normally, that would be irrelevant since he has every right to do that, but Rees had other ideas.As the first syllable of the invocation was uttered, Rees told everyone to hold up because Thoreau was still sitting down...
