What We're Reading Eagle Rising

We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!

It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.

You’re welcome.

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading, Monday, April 18, 2016.

Statistician Michael Harrington has some unpleasant news for Donald Trump and his supporters. Based on the math, there is very little chance that Donald Trump will indeed be the nominee of the Republican Party. Meanwhile, Trump has been touting a new CBS poll that shows the exact opposite of what he seems to think it shows.

The federal government continues to persecute America’s patriot ranchers, but now the Bundy family is fighting back. The falsely imprisoned Bundy brothers have refused to enter a plea in the government’s case against them.

Our government is willfully blinding itself to the terrible evil of the government of Saudi Arabia.

‘Eye For An Eye’ Shows Donald Trump Needs The Gospel – Donald Trump says his favorite Bible verse is a ‘mean’ verse about justice. It’s not mean, and he misinterpreted it, but we could all learn from it.

College holds a white privilege conference that argues that Christianity is the cause of everything bad in the world.

Finally, after more than 20 years of debating, the Czech Republic has a new name.

A Christian college in Tennessee chose to forfeit a playoff tennis match, rather than playing the match on a Sunday.

“Covenant College has elected to forfeit the Women’s Tennis USA South Conference championship match, scheduled for April 17, 2016. The championship match takes place on a Sunday, and as an institution owned and operated by the Presbyterian Church in America we observe the Sabbath by not competing in athletic events on Sunday. This conviction is clearly stated in our Student Handbook and is informed by the Bible, the Westminster Confession of Faith, and the PCA Book of Church Order.

In national tournaments, the NCAA makes accommodations for institutions that do not compete on a particular day for religious reasons. Bylaw 31.1.4.1 specifies that if an institution completes the Sport Sponsorship and Demographic Form they can be excused from competition on a particular day. The Covenant College Athletic Department has completed the necessary paperwork each year to apply for this exemption. While the NCAA has this policy, the USA South Athletic Conference is not bound to this. We have communicated with the other institutions in the USA South Athletic Conference, as well as the conference office, that we will not compete in athletic events on Sunday.”
