Philadelphia Eagles guard Evan Mathis garnered media attention this week after joking about Tim Tebow's virginity in a Twitter post.
On Sunday, Mathis posted to his Twitter account the image of a sign that said, "Don't die a virgin terrorists are up there waiting for you." He tweeted the image along with a personal message to the Christian quarterback, which said, "@Tim Tebow, thinking about you big guy."
Mathis, who played college football at The University of Alabama, also grabbed headlines last week when he posted a picture to Instagram of himself either urinating or pretending to urinate on a sign outside of an Internal Revenue Service building . As a caption to the image, which he posted several days after the IRS admitted to targeting conservative groups, Mathis wrote: "Audit this." more >>
The Senate's immigration reform bill was passed out of the Judiciary Committee Tuesday without the "Leahy amendment" that would have given family status to gay and lesbian partners of U.S. citizens.
Republican members of the bipartisan "gang of eight" that crafted the legislation warned that they would withdraw their support if the amendment was included.
"You've got me on immigration. You don't have me on marriage. If you want to keep me on immigration, let's stay on immigration," Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.), one of the gang of eight, said during debate over the amendment, according to Roll Call. more >>

The high stakes showdown over whether or not Boy Scouts of America will lift its ban on gay youth began in Grapevine, Texas, on Wednesday as the organization dismissed recent allegations that the fix is in.
Deron Smith, national spokesman for the BSA, called allegations of vote tampering "absolutely incorrect" and assured the public that the voting will be managed by independent election services company TrueBallot, Inc.
"The voters of the national council are defined by our bylaws. And the BSA has hired TrueBallot to administer the vote. Voters will be issued credentials and the vote will all happen in one room and validated by TrueBallot," he noted in a recent e-mail to The Christian Post. more >>
A 17-year-old student from Georgia whose family of five was homeless for most of her high school career has managed to graduate at the top of her class and earn a spot at prestigious Spelman College, where she will be enrolling as a junior in the fall.
"I just told myself to keep working, because the future will not be like this anymore," Chelesa Fearce told a local news station. "You're worried about your home life and then worried at school. Worry about being a little hungry sometimes, go hungry sometimes. You just have to deal with it. You eat what you can, when you can."
"It makes you more humble," she said of her experience. more >>
Wow, after five years of his loyal constituents supporting him and receiving nothing in return, it was nice to see President Obama address this year's all black male Morehouse College graduates. Obama even found his black vernacular as he always does before a black crowd, saying, "I know some of you are just graduating, thank you Lordy." As if all black people walk, talk, and think alike. Sickening and offensive.
Nevertheless, the last time Obama spoke to a historically black college or university was in 2007 at Howard University when he was trailing Hillary Clinton in the black vote for the Democrat presidential nomination. Can we say pandering?
Equally surprising during his Morehouse commencement address, Obama referred to himself "as a black man like you" something he rarely, if ever has done. Obama didn't refer to himself as a black man during his re-election campaign either. In fact, quite the opposite, as America's first black president he's largely made it a point of distancing himself from black America but ironically need black Americans vote each time to win. more >>
