Sen. Charles Grassley Probes Top Ministries

Last November, Republican Sen. Charles Grassley launched a public investigation into the ministries of six top televangelists who attract thousands of followers and collect hundreds of millions of dollars around the world. Grassley is demanding financial records to determine whether these churches deserve their tax exempt status. Benny Hinn, a TV preacher who runs the [...]

Kevin Tackles George Carlin’s Take On Religion

A Christian reader by the name of Kevin left a lengthy response to George Carlin’s Take on Religion. Since Kevin was kind enough to take the time to chime in, I thought it best to move his comment to the main page for all to discuss. It’s a long one so grab a cup of [...]

Flamethrower! Primetime Christian Ignorance

I’d like to thank Faith TV on the Sky Angel Network for taking television programming to new lows. This Christian network, which prides themselves on family values, is carrying Flamethrower, a new “cutting-edge political show” that will challenge Islam and undoubtedly praise Christianity. Flamethrower has been described as a low-budget, gritty cross between the “The [...]

Christians Should Walk Their Talk And Not Squawk

A few days ago I received a well-written email from Roger, a Christian and supporter of Evolution. He had a few things to say with respects to Christianity that I thought you might all enjoy. I’m hoping that Roger will stick around to answer any questions that readers may have as he actually appears to [...]

Rep Douglas Bruce “Lee” Kick Starts His Term

On Monday, Colorado Springs Republican Douglas Bruce was to be sworn in as a state representative in Colorado. So with bible in hand, Bruce went to the House floor for Morning Prayer. The room was filled with various reporters and photographers to capture what would normally be a mundane event. But this particular ceremony would [...]

Next Level Church–Give Us A Shot!

Over the years many churches, like many other businesses, have faced the same problem. How do you market your product and increase your customer base. To be honest this is where churches never cease to amaze me. In the past I’ve seen Christian martial arts exhibitions, catchy billboards, and other assorted gimmicks. But pastor Robbie [...]

Creationism–A Veil Of Ignorance

A few days ago I came across a great book just published by the National Academy of Sciences entitled Science, Evolution, and Creationism. It’s a quick 54-page read on how evolution is the “only tested, comprehensive scientific explanation for the nature of the biological world today that is supported by overwhelming evidence and widely accepted [...]

Sooreh Hera–Allah Ho Gaybar!

Yesterday I read an interesting story here about an Iranian exile that goes by the pseudonym of Sooreh Hera. Hera is a photographer in the Netherlands who’s on a dangerous mission to expose the “hypocritical” attitude towards homosexuality in countries such as Iran, where men can be hanged for homosexual conduct. There were probably a [...]
