Educators at the University of Tennessee are very concerned that students might be offended by the usage of personal pronouns like she, he, him and hers---so they are offering an alternative vocabulary to the old misconceptions of male and female.
A University spokesperson says, "It's about education. We are a higher education institution and exposing our students to a lot of different things."
"We are exposing our students to an increasingly diverse and global world," she says.
Global education rankings show her "global world" has moved on, leaving the US far down the list.
America was once rated #1 in education, now depending on the survey organization, we are as high as #14 and as low as #28.
Remember the little song, "School days, school days; Dear old Golden Rule days; Reading and...

More than 10,000 people gathered at the State House in South Carolina Saturday to say publicly, "We Stand With God."
The SC newspaper, "The State," reported that the gathering "amounted to a political and religious revival" with Ted Cruz and Rick Perry joining local pastors and politicians.
The newspaper reports "they were preaching messages denouncing abortion and gay marriage and calling for a spiritual awakening in Washington DC and across the nation."
Is something going on---or is this just politics as usual?

This week Ira Mehlman, head of Federation for American Immigration Reform, told One News Now: "A nation is more than just a random collection of people who happen to have been born in a particular place or happen to share a defined piece of geography. There is a lot more that defines a nation and if we don't start recognizing that, we're not going to have a nation."
But what does God say?
Is the concept of "nations" important in God's purposes? If so, how does He define a nation?

Heads Up Parents: As kids prepare to return to public school classrooms, Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest Homosexual Rights organization, is prepared to welcome them.
Their new "Welcoming Schools Initiative Guide" is waiting on the educator's desk to help teachers answer questions that may come up in class, like, "How can a family have two moms [dads]?" In addition, they are preparing the teacher to seize "teachable" moments in the classroom.
The "Guide" also addresses which words are and which are not acceptable in the classroom, with a goal of making gay and transgender kids feel comfortable.
Suggestion To Teachers: If you're a Christian or conservative, have you considered redirecting the use of your mandatory NEA dues? A number of public school teachers are doing so to avoid supporting Planned Parenthood and political candidates and legislation that does not represent their personal beliefs.

Monday night President Obama told the crowd in Nevada, "It's hard for me to express how much I love Harry Reid."
Then he said, "We were doing a little reminiscing and then figuring out how we're going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems."
Who are the crazies?
Our president has defined who he thinks they are, however some in Republican leadership have also defined "the crazies."
"Crazies" would be different for Obama than for some of the Republican leaders--right?
