The nation's largest atheist organization is being forced to walk back claims that they purchased ads on Washington D.C.'s public transportation system despite its ban on religious and issue-oriented advertisements.
"Clarification: Freedom From Religion Foundation's 'I'm an Atheist and I Vote' ad campaign is not running on Washington D.C. Metro buses, which prohibit political and advocacy ads. It's actually featured on the Prince Williams and D runs on PRTC (Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission) commuter buses," stated FFRF.
This is a second blow to the organization that launched a massive ad campaign to promote their atheist Reason Rally in the nation's capital on Saturday, which was expected to feature Hollywood actor Johnny Depp who backed out of the event last week after his wife filed for divorce, as reported by The Christian Post. more >>

Former megachurch pastor Rob Bell has recently declared that he rarely uses the term "American" anymore when describing himself or others.
In an interview with the popular digital publication Downpebbles, Bell said he preferred not using the term "American," believing that United States citizens should go beyond selfish titles.
"I don't actually use the word 'American,' because I think Amerigo Vespucci would be mortified that a country with very strong codes of in-and-out was started in his name," said Bell. more >>
The world nowadays has been described as a "global village" thanks to technological advances that have knit first-world urban dwellers to third-world villagers through mobile phones and the internet. Finishing the Great Commission and bringing the Gospel to unreached people groups through Bible translations in their heart language is occurring more rapidly than ever in history.
Bob Creson, president and CEO of Wycliffe Bible Translators USA, wrote in a 2014 article in Christian Post that a unqiue software program called ParaText has radically increased the speed of Bible translation and that "someone who is alive in the world today will translate the last Bible for the last unreached people."
"We're at a pivotal point in history where this generation could see the end of a centuries-old effort to make the Bible available in every language that needs it. This is the fastest pace of Bible translation the church has ever seen, and technological advancements have played a critical role in getting us here. We praise God that today there are nearly 2,200 Bible translation projects underway in some of the most remote places on earth, representing 1.9 billion people being reached with the gospel in a language they can clearly understand." more >>
