A pastor in Indiana is being heralded as a hero after saving the day by preventing a crime at a local discount store by pulling out his licensed handgun to stop an attempted robbery suspect.
Pastor Carl Sanders was walking into the Dollar General Store in Evansville, Ind. on Friday night to purchase a Gatorade when he was approached by a 25-year-old suspect, who appeared to be robbing a cashier. Minutes before Sanders' entrance, the suspect, Jermaine Dewayne Marshall, had ordered the cashier to open the cash register, and when the employee had refused, Marshall had struck him repeatedly in the face.
Marshall had wrapped a bandana around his face and was carrying an unknown object in his hand covered by a plastic bag that he was claiming to be a firearm. more >>
A video billboard campaign that portrays President Barack Obama as having an Adolf Hitler mustache is calling for his impeachment and restoration of the Glass Steagall Act.
The sign, which was paid for by the LaRouchePAC, a political action committee created by Lyndon LaRouche, who has run for president eight times since 1976, was part of a two-day ad campaign that was displayed in the Cornerstone Plaza shopping center's digital marquee located along U.S. Route 6 in Kendallville, Ind., a town that has a population of 9,800 people.
Barbara Boyd, the treasurer of LaRouchePAC, told The Christian Post that they are "considering purchasing other space" to place their ads, "but have not come to a conclusion yet." more >>
National organization Students for Life of America (SFL) said that vandalism of crosses and offensive statements are commonplace at recent pro-life rallies, with pro-life students at Indiana University catching such actions on tape.
The pro-choice movement has "lost the upper hand in that argument and this is what they've resorted to," Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, told The Christian Post in an interview on Wednesday. Hawins said that activists engaged in the organization's new "Planned Parenthood Project," a tour across 41 different college campuses, witness vandalism and verbal abuse twice a week.
In the video, an unnamed man proclaims, "You're in conflict with the world that I want, which is a world where all your churches burn." Elisha Frick, SFL's Great Lakes regional coordinator and an eyewitness to the event, emphasized that SFL is not a faith-based organization. more >>
A university in Indiana has sent a letter to a Washington state-based intelligent design group stating that it will be reviewing certain courses that are allegedly anti-religious in nature.
Ball State University sent the letter to the Discovery Institute of Seattle in response to a letter sent last month by the group protesting the university's stance on intelligent design and the content of certain courses.
Jo Ann Gora, president of Ball State, wrote on Monday that the Discovery Institute's arguments against the university's stance against intelligent design will not be changed and that the courses they took issue with are being investigated. more >>
It took more than a year of planning, talking and listening but the people of Elkhart County, Ind., finally have a blueprint on how they will spend the $150 million fortune willed to them by reclusive hometown businessman David Gundlach.

"Porter Ridge," a new Discovery Channel reality sitcom about backwoods men with long beards, sometimes talking about Jesus, may seem at first glance like a spin-off from A&E's hit show "Duck Dynasty," but the producer behind both shows asserts that "Porter Ridge" is completely different than "Duck Dynasty."
"Porter Ridge is more about freedom verses family," Scott Gurney, executive producer for both shows, explain to The Christian Post in a Thursday interview. While he said both shows aim to be family-friendly, Gurney contrasted the neighborhood focus of the new show to the Robertson family starring in "Duck Dynasty."
"It's more about the good old days of being good to your neighbor, doing your job, and having great friendships," Gurney said. more >>
