“The University of South Alabama said it will start allowing men who identify as female to go into girls’ bathrooms and changing facilities this semester, even though the state’s attorney general is urging schools to ignore the Obama administration’s transgender bathroom directive.”
“While there is no quick cure for such misconceptions, there is one essential key that really helps clear away the cobwebs. And that key is understanding the different categories of books in early Christianity.”

An excellent article by Dr. David Menton on the wondrous parts and functions of the human eye.

Hint: It did not look like a little boat with a giraffe sticking its head and neck through the chimney.
