A new study is showing that Catholics have been abandoning the Democratic Party as the political faction increasingly embraces abortion extremism. According to data collected and analyzed by Ryan Burge, research director at Faith Counts, the past 50 years have seen white Catholics leaving the Democratic Party and beginning to coalesce around the GOP.
A new poll is showing that a majority of Americans support school policies requiring teachers to inform parents of students' social gender transition efforts. According to a recent Center Square Voter's Voice Poll conducted in conjunction with Noble Predictive Insights, 66% of Americans from across the political spectrum - including Republicans, Democrats, and independent voters - responded that teachers should "be obligated to inform parents if their child changes their gender identification or preferred pronouns at school." Surprisingly, nearly half of Democrats (49%) signaled support for such policies, while less than a third (30%) opposed them.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) policies have grown so diverse that they now include policies reminiscent of the Jim Crow era. A Chicago-area school district is attempting to boost academic achievement among black and Latino students by offering blacks-only and Latino-only classes. The segregated classes are called "affinity" classes, and they aim to reduce the so-called "academic achievement gap" by making black and Latino students feel more comfortable in class.
As more hostages walk out of their underground jail to freedom, the rosy picture of Hamas's "gentle" treatment is starting to unravel. While 85-year-old Yocheved Lifshitz praised her captors back in October for the regular food, medical care, and beds, others tell a different story. Twelve-year-old Eitan Yahalomi was "tortured during his confinement," his grandmother says - "beaten, forced at gunpoint to watch videos of Hamas atrocities, and threatened with death when he and other children cried." Left by himself in darkness for 16 days, Eitan has trouble speaking now.
As Congress kicked back into session following the Thanksgiving break, Republican lawmakers are making their position crystal clear regarding continued aid to Ukraine: if the Biden administration wants billions of additional dollars for Ukraine's war against Russia, it must include legislation to provide solutions for the spiraling crisis at America's southern border.
The Walt Disney Company has been at the forefront of culture wars in recent years. Many became aware of their left-wing political proclivities when they aggressively opposed legislation in Florida that would prohibit schools from giving lessons on sexual orientation and gender identity to children in kindergarten through third grade. The bill, which enjoyed broad public support (even among Democrats), was dishonestly described by progressive activists as the "Don't Say Gay" bill simply because it prohibited activists from proselytizing young children.
