A recently closed Halloween-themed attraction that was opposed by Kay Warren, wife of Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren, and others for stigmatizing people who live with mental illness is garnering new support in the form of an online petition calling for its reopening.
Earlier this week, it was announced that FearVR was going to be closed by the Buena Park, California-based Knott's Berry Farm in response to outcry over its portrayal of a character suffering from mental illness.
An advocate for those with mental illness, Kay Warren was part of the successful effort to close down the Knotts Berry Farm attraction known as FearVR. more >>
Ayesha Curry has been piling her proverbial plate with the business of building her own food empire from scratch. But more than focusing on cementing a name for herself in the food industry, the cookbook author and future Food Network host is planning to use her platform to serve as a witness for Jesus Christ.
The 27-year-old wife of Golden State Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry isn't posting scriptures every day on social media or inviting everyone along on her book tour or to church. However, she is intentional about serving as a witness for her Christian faith, which is something that both she and her two-time consecutive NBA MVP award-winning husband have made a priority.
"When Steph decided to play basketball, I had the same conversation with him that he had with me. 'Whatever you do, do it well, but do it for God,'" Curry said in an interview with The Christian Post. "I think that's what has kept us grounded. When I started my blog called 'Little Lights of Mine,' my whole goal was to do the things I wanted to do, but all while being a light for Him." more >>
New TV shows coming this fall are better than what the Parents Television Council has seen for the past few years, markedly veering away from the serial killer genre pattern and moving toward family comedies, says a PTC official.
PTC's Head of Research Operations Christopher Gildemeister prescreened many of the major networks' TV fall lineup (from NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS). Although he said that he has not screened absolutely every new show coming out this fall, he told The Christian Post during an interview Monday, "There may be something out there much better or much worse — I doubt it."
Gildemeister said that the landscape of network TV this year seems to have improved. "This year is better than the last couple previous years have been. The good shows are better than (the ones) that got broadcast in past years, and the bad ones are not as bad — (as) they have been in the past. more >>
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick revealed Tuesday that he has been getting death threats for refusing to stand for the national anthem in protest of racial inequality and unfair treatment of minorities by law enforcement.
He also said the recent death of Terence Crutcher, 40, is a "perfect example" of the point he is trying to make. Crutcher was shot dead last Friday in a controversial encounter with Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby after his SUV broke down in the middle of the street.
Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship church in Riverside, California, believes people will not be given a second chance to choose Heaven after they die, and insists that those that go to Hell send themselves there.
"We need to think very seriously about this, because once we die and enter the afterlife, we can't change our destination. You can decide right now where you will spend eternity. But once you die, there are no more chances," Laurie wrote in a message shared on his Facebook page on Saturday.
The pastor, who often talks about the topics of Heaven and Hell, said that he is not approaching the subject "from an ivory tower of theory," since a number of members of his family have died. more >>
What will the 35-acre campus of Christ Cathedral look like after its redesign is complete? The Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange, which bought the structure, formerly known as the Crystal Cathedral, in 2012, is unveiling a virtual preview of the multimillion-dollar renovation for the public on Sunday.
As the diocese celebrates its 40th anniversary Sunday in an event to be attended by about 10,000 Catholic faithfuls, it will offer a virtual tour of the $72 million renovation of the glass sanctuary in Garden Grove in California which was originally built by the Rev. Robert H. Schuller.
The preview will include a sanctuary splashed in white, highlighting an altar, the bishop's chair and baptismal font, according to Los Angeles Times, which said the new space will have nearly 3,000 seats, with pews arranged in a radial pattern and featuring a circular shaped Blessed Sacrament Chapel, bearing a portrait of Our Lady of Guadalupe. more >>
