‘That’s Not Mine’: Guest Speaker at High School Assembly Allegedly Shows Porn on Screen

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR-TV) — A guest speaker was removed from a high school assembly Monday morning after an inappropriate image appeared on a large screen at the beginning of his presentation, Midlothian High School principal Shawn Abel said in a message to parents. The image was pornographic in nature, according to people who were in the room during the Career Pathways program assembly at Midlothian High School. “The image came from the mobile drive provided by the outside speaker. The guest speaker was immediately removed from the assembly, and the remainder of the event went on as planned,” Abel said. “Like you, I am very concerned that a distraction caused by an outside speaker would become the focus of an otherwise important conversation with our students. We will redouble our efforts when we coordinate events with outside speakers, including...Read more
Former Google Engineer Creating ‘Way of the Future Church’ to ‘Worship’ Artificial Intelligence

Former Google Engineer Creating ‘Way of the Future Church’ to ‘Worship’ Artificial Intelligence

Photo Credit: John Sommers I/Transport Topics/Wikipedia (Wired) — Anthony Levandowski makes an unlikely prophet. Dressed Silicon Valley-casual in jeans and flanked by a PR rep rather than cloaked acolytes, the engineer known for self-driving cars—and triggering a notorious lawsuit—could be unveiling his latest startup instead of laying the foundations for a new religion. But he is doing just that. Artificial intelligence has already inspired billion-dollar companies, far-reaching research programs, and scenarios of both transcendence and doom. Now Levandowski is creating its first church. The new religion of artificial intelligence is called Way of the Future. It represents an unlikely next act for the Silicon Valley robotics wunderkind at the center of a high-stakes legal battle between Uber and Waymo, Alphabet’s autonomous-vehicle company. Papers filed with...Read more

Superintendent Apologizes After Student Prayer Group Halted by Principal

AMELIA, Va. (WWBT-TV) – Parents are outraged after a situation involving a group of students praying at school on Thursday. Amelia County Public Schools says it was all a “misunderstanding and miscommunication.” Superintendent Dr. Jack McKinley acknowledges to NBC12 that the four-year principal of the school stopped a group prayer that students began in the hallway, in between classes. “Moving forward together” – that’s the message on the marquee at Amelia County High School, just one day after a group of eight or nine students were threatened with suspension for praying during passing period. “There’s been a lot of hatred and aggression in our schools,” said Matthew Dunn. He organized the prayer. Continue reading this story >> A special message from the publisher… Dear Reader, because of your generous...Read more
Act of Censorship? Wikipedia Page for Scientist Who Supports Intelligent Design Deleted

Act of Censorship? Wikipedia Page for Scientist Who Supports Intelligent Design Deleted

Proponents of Intelligent Design are crying foul after the Wikipedia page for a respected scientist who believes that God created the universe with a purpose was recently deleted. Günter Bechly is a paleo-entomologist in Germany whose areas of expertise include fossil history and insect origins. A Roman Catholic, Bechly says he grew up in a secular home but concluded later that the evidence for Darwinian evolution is weak and the data pointing to Intelligent Design is strong. “Many people think that somebody who comes to doubt the neo-Darminian process and embraces intelligent design probably was religious from the very beginning, probably is an evangelical Christian, and has his axes to grind—his religious axe to grind,” Bechly said in a documentary published recently on YouTube by the Discovery Institute. “I came via a totally...Read more

Chinese Police Question 13 Christians for Holding House Church Services

JIANGMEN, Guangdong (China Aid) — 13 Christians in China’s southern Guangdong province were interrogated at the police station on Nov. 5 after police broke into their church service, ChinaAid learned recently. During a Sunday morning worship service at Qingcaodi Church on Nov. 5, a team of police officers and religious affairs bureau personnel invaded a small house church and accused those gathered there of holding religious services at unapproved sites.

There, they were questioned and forced to stay until their information was entered into the database and transcripts of their interrogation were filled out. The woman who provided the church’s venue, Zhai Lili, received an administrative detention sentence, and she has not yet...Read more
