Jewish extremists under house arrest. A Catholic principal apologizes for featuring a photo of Ellen DeGeneres on an Oscars-theme invitation. Evangelicals (and others) take to the skies.

    “An Oklahoma school board that approved a public school Bible curriculum broke into small groups and met privately with the program’s chief backer, the president of the Hobby Lobby arts and crafts store chain, to get around a state law that requires government bodies to be open to the public, according to emails obtained by The Associated Press”

    Because a legal, academically oriented class requires school board members to sneak around outside the view of the public in order to get enacted. More proof that Steve Green is a self-righteous jerk who thinks he can own people and buy piety.

    Getting information to people is great because so many people today
    are misinformed about the Truth. Bible says Repent or perish not keep
    living the same way we did before we came to Christ! Preach Repent
    or perish then see how many people still want to follow Jesus. People
    today seem to forget we must Repent! Ephesians 5:18 says don’t get
    drunk and 1 Corinthians 6:10 says that all drunkards go to hell but
    many people don’t know because all people seem to talk about are
    gay marriage and/or abortion so their sin doesn’t seem so bad and
    so they don’t have to face their own sin. Gossips go to hell too but
    we sure don’t see many people with posters protesting gossip/slander.
    If you say you love Jesus then don’t follow the Bible/religion no Truth
    is in you! 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 list coveters/the greedy as people
    who go to hell if they don’t Repent but we sure don’t hear about or
    see many people up in arms about coveting which is the cause for
    most sin! Most sins start from the act/sin of coveting so why don’t
    people preach about coveting/the greedy and gossip,being mean,
    sharp tongues,gambling,getting drunk,pride,jealousy,havin premarital
    sex? It’s because most people today don’t want to face their own sin.
    The wine that Jesus made was new wine/diluted and the Bible says
    don’t get drunk on strong wine so people who get drunk with wine
    are also wrong! Preachers today need to do a better job of preaching
    against all sin because Jesus said that many will say to Me Lord,Lord
    and not enter heaven! Not enough to believe in Jesus. We must follow!

    Then you should follow Jesus’ example, Karla, which you are NOT doing now. Jesus affirmed a gay couple. Read Matthew 8:5-13 and Luke 7:1-10. Many of us are familiar with the Gospel story where Jesus healed the servant of a Roman centurion. In the original Greek, the word that the Roman centurion uses in this passage to describe the sick man – pais – is the same word used in ancient Greek to refer to a same-gender partner.

    You don’t literally mean the Pope will be flying from Bethlehem to Jerusalem, right? They’re like 10 miles away from each other.

    Actually, yes. By helicopter.
