President Obama's Friday morning call for a gender-neutral policy in public school bathrooms and locker rooms has triggered a wide variety of responses from various sources. Officials in at least six states have threatened to defy the guidance.

And Christian pastor Franklin Graham minced no words when he penned his response via Facebook.

Teachers forced kids to drop pants in search for serial pooper: Student

An 11-year-old girl says teachers told her and about two dozen classmates to drop their pants for a feces inspection at their Texas school this week, a local TV station reports.

The teachers at the elementary school in the hamlet of Gustine had been finding feces on the gym floor, so in a bid to find the culprit they ordered the boys and girls to go into separate rooms Monday and "pull down their pants to check them to see if they could find anything," Maria Medina, the mother of the girl, told WFAA.

FBI arrests Ohio man, 20, who wanted to 'wage jihad' on U.S. with bomb and gun attack on Capitol

A 20-year-old Ohio man's Twitter posts sympathizing with Islamic terrorists led to an undercover FBI operation and the man's arrest on charges that he plotted to blow up the U.S. Capitol and kill government officials.

Christopher Lee Cornell, also known as Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah, told an FBI informant they should "wage jihad," and showed his plans for bombing the Capitol and shooting people, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Ohio Wednesday. The FBI said Cornell expressed his support for the Islamic State.

How to protect Canada from a crippling attack

While both Canada and the United States are currently vulnerable to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack that has the potential to destabilize our power grid, water systems, food supply chain and more, the solution is relatively simple. But first the issue needs to become a priority for Canadian politicians.

Part one of this two-part feature explained former CIA analyst Dr. Peter Pry’s attempts to educate policy-makers and the military on the need to protect our electrical grid. If an enemy detonated a nuclear missile above the skies of North America, it could take out our grid for months. Countries like North Korea and various terrorist groups have already shown they can successfully launch EMP missiles.

“This is a bigger threat than the classic nuclear war we talk about,” Pry explained during a recent visit to Toronto. “It will kill a lot more people. One bomb will basically end your civilization."

In Nigeria, Boko Haram Is Not the Problem

GOVERNMENTS and newspapers around the world attributed the horrific Christmas Day bombings of churches in Nigeria to "Boko Haram" - a shadowy group that is routinely described as an extremist Islamist organization based in the northeast corner of Nigeria. Indeed, since the May inauguration of President Goodluck Jonathan, a Christian from the Niger Delta in the country's south, Boko Haram has been blamed for virtually every outbreak of violence in Nigeria.

But the news media and American policy makers are chasing an elusive and ill-defined threat; there is no proof that a well-organized, ideologically coherent terrorist group called Boko Haram even exists today. Evidence suggests instead that, while the original core of the group remains active, criminal gangs have adopted the name Boko Haram to claim responsibility for attacks when it suits them.

Franklin Graham: Fundraising for Planned Parenthood 'is like raising money to fund a Nazi death camp'

Franklin Graham is calling out former President George W. Bush's daughter, Barbara Pierce Bush, for speaking at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser on Thursday, saying that raising funds for the abortion business is like raising money for Nazi death camps.

"Planned Parenthood is the #1 abortion provider in the United States," Graham wrote in a Facebook post yesterday. "Raising funds for this organization is like raising money to fund a Nazi death camp - like Auschwitz, except for innocent babies in their mother's wombs!"

College gunman, 26, was 'filled with hate,' lived with his mother and asked if his victims were Christian in rampage that left at least ten dead

The Oregon college gunman who murdered at least nine people has been named as Chris Harper-Mercer - a 26-year-old who celebrated other mass murderers, attended a school for students with 'emotional issues' and said: 'The more people you kill, the more you're in the limelight'.

The killer, whose father is British and said he idolized the IRA and Nazis, on Thursday walked into Umpqua Community College in Roseburg wearing body armor and carrying three handguns and a rifle before shooting dead nine students and wounding nine more.

Witnesses said he had made his victims stand-up and say if they were Christian before telling them: 'Good, you'll see God in a second' and shooting them in the head. If students answered anything other than Christian they were shot in the body.

America will fall without a moral revival: Franklin Graham launches 50-state tour ahead of 2016 election

The Reverend Franklin Graham believes the United States of America is in danger, and will only be saved by turning back to God. And this can only be accomplished by Christians praying and bringing their faith to the public square.

America's problems are across the board, Rev. Graham said; spiritual, economic, and even racial, an area in which he believes the country is actually going backward. And he insists the answer is not found in politics.

"We have economic problems; we have political problems," Rev. Graham stated yesterday in Des Moines, IA. "And no political party is going to be able to turn this around, okay?"
