"Media" used to mean "print media" like books and newspapers, but the world has grown. Today media can also mean radio, television and movies delivered to personal computers, tablets and cell phones. As the world's best selling book of all time the Bible continues to make headlines, both good and bad, across all forms of media. This week in the Bible and Media: Cheerleaders snatch victory from the Freedom from Religion Foundation, Brown University suppresses a report suggesting kids become transgender due to social pressure and an Ohio public school teacher reinvents the "Life Boat" curriculum for the modern left.

While Sunday's in America used to be represented by a church-going majority, fiery sermons and doctrine-correct hymns today it is represented largely by football and cheerleaders. Score one for the Law of Entropy. Even so, some moderns are giving a nod to the old ways as Christian cheerleaders at a public high school in Kountze, Texas write Bible verses on run-through banners in an attempt to encourage and inspire the athletes. This resulted in the now predictable law suite from the villainous anti-freedom Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF).

On Friday August 31, 2018 the Texas Supreme Court handed the trophy of victory over to the home team who, with the aid of Hiram Sasser from the First Liberty Institute, defeated the FFRF.

“After more than five years of litigation, our clients are relieved that the Texas Supreme Court has brought an end to the school district’s scorched earth litigation tactics,” said Sasser, general council for the cheerleaders. “As the football season kicks off across Texas, it’s good to be reminded that these cheerleaders have a right to have religious speech on their run through banners—banners on which the cheerleaders painted messages they chose, with paint they paid for, on paper they purchased.”

As we've been reporting on California's "Stay Gay" bill, we're now starting to see this philosophy spill over into other states. A study by Brown University (Rhode Island) professor Lisa Littman is being suppressed for suggesting that children who identify as transgender do so due to peer pressure. Littman is a behavioral and social scientist professor who published her research in PLOS ONE. After surveying 250 parents of children who developed what is clinically called "gender dysphoria" and found that 52 of them "reported their child had one or more friends become transgender-identified at around the same time. Parents also report that their children exhibited an increase in social media/internet use prior to disclosure of a transgender identity,” Littman wrote.

While Littman's study is being supressed, an teacher at Cuyahoga Falls Middle School in Ohio produced a class exercise asking students to identify who should live or die in a modernized "Life Boat" scenario. Nine people are presented and only eight can escape impending death, and among the candidates are a “homosexual male professional athlete,” a “21-year-old female Muslim international student,” a “Hispanic clergyman who is against homosexuality” and a “racist armed police officer who has been accused of using excessive force.” Notice that the only two candidates that have negative words in their description ("against" and "racist") are the Christian and the Police Officer, revealing the professors bias and leading the students to improper conclusions.
