True life story: Desperate to Fit In

I'm not exactly sure when I realized my life was spinning out of control. Maybe it was that night in the police car. I'd just been caught shoplifting, and they were taking me down to the police station.
Maybe it was the night my parents found an empty wine bottle in my closet. They'd suspected I'd been drinking, but when they found that bottle, they knew it was serious.
Or maybe it was the day one of my friends caught me throwing up. No, I wasn't hung over. I was just obsessed with being thin; I wanted to look good for my friends, so I'd fallen into a cycle of binge-and-purge, eat-and-vomit.

5 damaging side effects that come with a pornography habit





If you're a human with internet access, chances are you've seen pornography at least once in your life. It's everywhere, and it's easier than ever to access or stumble across by accident.

Since pornography has become so common, it's starting to be seen as the norm. The side effects are disregarded, and some couples and professionals even argue that it's a healthy part of a relationship.

We hear warnings about the harmful consequences of pornography, but what are they really? We've done the research and compiled a list of five dangerous side effects that come with viewing pornography:

Christian children in Iran told to study Islam or leave school




The religious freedom charity Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) is raising concern after being informed that children from families belonging to the Church of Iran denomination in the cities of Rasht and Shiraz have been told they must either study Shi'a Islam, or leave school.
As second generation believers, and not converts, the youngsters have a right to be exempt from studying Shi'a Islam at school by producing a letter from the denomination.
CSW said the letters are now being rejected on the grounds that the Church is an "illegal organisation".
https://www.books2read.com/u/3Roaxv


It claimed schools are insisting children either agree to study Islam, or go home.

CSW's Chief Executive Mervyn Thomas said: "It is worrying that the education of so many children will be unduly interrupted until their parents agree for them to study a religion different to their own.
"Education is a basic right which Iran has undertaken to guarantee to all of its citizens. Children should not be victimised in an effort to penalise their parents for exercising the right to adopt a religion of their choice.

"Since education is the responsibility of central government, we urge the Special Rapporteur on the right to education and other key international human rights experts to make urgent representations with President Rouhani, with a view to ensuring the country fulfils its national and international obligations to respect the right of the child to education, and particularly to religious education commensurate with the convictions and beliefs of their parents."
A number of leaders in Church of Iran have faced action in recent years - normally linked to evangelism. They often face charges of acting against the state.
