Pope Francis is officially installed today. Who says an atheist can't celebrate Lent? And Mormon women, for the first time in 183 years, will offer prayers at the General Conference.

    People wanting to live the Gospels would have to separate themselves from the culture of Christianity.

    Didn’t make Satan to look like the President. I believe that one. NOT! As John said above one would have to live outside the Christian culture to be a Christian. It is so sad that these Christians who claim Christ’s love and respect sure don’t, and aren’t willing to boot, give that love and respect to anyone they don’t absolutely agree with. Christ ate and mingled with the sinners, these Christians would rather kill one or four and then claim “Stand your Ground”. Pretty much tells the story of why I don’t attend ANY church.
