A Pennsylvania parent upset that his child was being exposed to religion through the Star of David necklace being worn by a teacher filed a complaint but learned that the school board supported the teacher's freedom.
"They are there to learn about education, not to learn about religious points of view," Ernest Perce, the man responsible for the complaint, told ABC 27 news.

Answering questions about the lead track on "The London Series" which is entitled "Therapy," Blige revealed her healing through prayer.
"I've never sat down with a doctor like that, no," she told Billboard magazine. "But I meditate and pray and try to really take responsibility. That's therapy too, when you take responsibility for all the foolishness you're doing and all the things you did wrong." more >>
