NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, has been accused of censoring religious speech among its Christian employees, including banning the name Jesus.
The JSC reportedly told employees last year that the name "Jesus" could not appear in newsletters pertaining to the Praise and Worship Club that meets during the lunch hour.

That tradition should continue here," said Liberty Institute Senior Counsel Jeremy Dys to The Christian Post in an interview Tuesday. more >>

It is no secret that in December 1974, Cruz, who was a businessman in the oil industry in Canada at the time and was struggling with deep alcohol issues, left his wife and 3-year-old son, Ted, to go Houston, Texas, and continue his life there without his family.
In an appearance on Michael Brown's radio show "The Line of Fire" on Friday, Cruz, the author of the new book, A Time for Action: Empowering the Faithful to Reclaim America, detailed how he was led to Christ during his time in Houston.

If God chooses to answer the prayer of Pastor Donnie Romero of Stedfast Baptist Church in Texas, UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor will soon be struck down by a lightning bolt for calling himself god and saying he would knock out Jesus.
"I'm telling you what, I'm going to pray that God strikes this guy dead," Romero said in clip from a recent sermon posted to YouTube.
"Do you know why?" he asked. "Guy's name is Conor McGregor. He's the UFC featherweight champ or something like that, he's on this run of just knocking people out. But he got up and he said 'if Jesus Christ was in the ring with me, I'd knock him out.'" more >>
