Back to school is here! For some students, like those at College of Charleston in South Carolina, their fight for school approve to form a political group is just beginning. Also, an Army Chaplain is vindicated, a study from Brown University is removed after outcry from progressives, and you won’t believe the connection between Planned Parenthood and the judge putting a gag order on the videos showing the group’s illegal conduct. All this and more from the Alliance Alert team!
ADF in the News
Students at College of Charleston in South Carolina wanted to create a group that educated other students on South Carolina politics. They were turned down by the student government and administration. Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Creative Writer and Editor Chris Potts exposes the hypocrisy and unconstitutionality of the college’s actions.
An Army chaplain has been absolved of any wrongdoing after the U.S. Army dismissed a complaint that he had discriminated against a same-sex couple. The chaplain backed out of a military-sponsored marriage retreat when he learned a same-sex couple would be in attendance, and he was subsequently charged with "dereliction of duty" by an investigator. The Army disagreed.
Marriage and the Family
Brown University published a study about the effects of peer pressure and rapid-onset gender dysphoria. At one point, the study says that accepting gender ideology is akin to other coping mechanisms plaguing teenagers like drugs, alcohol, and self-harm. After an uproar, the university quickly scrubbed the study and issued an apology.
Sanctity of Life
The Center for Medical Progress gained national attention in 2015 when it released videos exposing illegal and disturbing practices at Planned Parenthood clinics. Now, a judge is blocking David Daleiden's group from releasing more videos. Curiously, this judge also helped start a local Planned Parenthood clinic.
