Actress Candace Cameron Bure admits that being an outspoken woman of faith has made her the target of criticism. And while she has been criticized for various reasons in the past, she says her critics are after her fashion choices and modesty this time.
In a recent blog post on her website, Bure notes that maintaining her moral integrity while being successful in Hollywood is not as challenging as dealing with the scrutiny she faces through her personal social media accounts.
"The most negativity I receive on FB is about my clothing and modesty. I do realize I took a position of modesty while I was on Dancing With the Stars and because of it, people are that much more attentive to everything I wear. And understandably so!" wrote Bure. more >>
When Secretary of State Kerry criticized Israel's military operations in Gaza by calling them a "hell of a pinpoint operation," he not only validated Hamas's human-shield strategy, he handed Hamas a key propaganda victory.
And he had no excuse for doing so.
Unlike the vast majority of Americans - including a vast majority of Americans in "public service" - Secretary Kerry has actual combat experience. He's fully aware of the enormous destructive capability of a modern military, and he's thus fully aware of what a truly unrestrained Israeli military operation would look like. Further, as a senior leader in the Obama administration, he's aware - or should be aware - of our own rules of engagement and conduct in urban operations in Fallujah, Tal Afar, Najaf, and other recent urban fights. If he is aware, he'd know that the Israelis often take even greater precautions than our own military does to prevent civilian casualties. more >>

"One of my favorite quotes is, 'I don't know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future,'" said Tebow, according to FOX Sports. "And in that it gives you peace to just continue to work and go after what our heart desires and when you do that, you don't have any regrets and I think that's the best way to live life." more >>
