An atheist group based in Wisconsin has erected a nativity scene that involves a copy of the U.S. Constitution in place of the baby Jesus on public property in Indiana.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation placed the display earlier this week at the Franklin County Courthouse in Brookville following a failed effort to remove a manger scene.
FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor said in a statement released last week that she and her organization preferred no displays at the courthouse. more >>
A sheriff in Georgia has posted a sign on government property that tells people who are offended by phrases like "In God We Trust" and "Merry Christmas" to leave the area.
Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley posted the controversial sign last week just outside of the sheriff's office and it has garnered national attention since then.
"WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America and In God We Trust [.] We Salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you … LEAVE!" reads the sign. more >>
Is it just a bit ironic that atheist celebrity magicians Penn and Teller were selected as grand marshals of this year's Hollywood Christmas Parade? Apparently the irony was not lost on the two performers who promoted the event with a dose of in-your-face sarcasm.
Penn Jillette tweeted, "Hollywood Christmas Parade: Penn & Teller to Grand Marshal Annual Event | — Yeah Xmas — you gotta problem with that?"
But not everyone is laughing. The ladies of "The View" clashed Monday over the subject when moderator Whoopi Goldberg and guest co-host Sunny Hostin found themselves on opposite sides of the fence. While Goldberg didn't have a problem with Penn and Teller as the parade's grand marshalls, Hostin didn't see the point in their selection. more >>
There are no atheists in foxholes, and there are no atheists in Hell. That's because everyone in Hell understands the justice of their sentence, and everyone in Hell has come to learn that God truly exists.
In this life, men are often not prone to realize the gravity of their sin against God or its consequences. This is the sad reality in spite of how clearly Jesus addressed the topics of sin, judgment, Heaven, and Hell.
But things suddenly change at the moment of your death. You can no longer push it out of your mind once you're in it. The death of your physical body is the beginning of your eternal existence in either Heaven or Hell. more >>
They said it could not be done. In 2014, a little known Christian film named "God's Not Dead" became a surprise blockbuster.
In November, the minds behind the apologetic box office hit have released a trailer for the much anticipated sequel, slated to hit theatres next year.
With a title that continues to build off of the lyrics of the Newsboys song, "God's Not Dead 2: He's Surely Alive" follows a fictional account of a teacher being sued for mentioning Jesus in her public school classroom. more >>
A Maryland veterans memorial with a large cross is constitutional, a federal court ruled.
U.S. District Judge Deborah K. Chasanow ruled Monday that the Bladensburg World War I Veterans Memorial could include a forty-foot tall Latin cross.
In her decision, Chasanow concluded that the Bladensburg cross was constitutional since it passed the legal precedent of not having an exclusively religious purpose. more >>
