A representative of the Vatican said that the Roman Catholic Church is not concerned with the controversy over the White House inviting pro-gay and pro-choice individuals to meet Pope Francis when he visits the nation's capital.
Father Thomas Rosica, a Vatican adviser and spokesman, was asked by Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday about the recent guest list controversy.

NEW YORK — Christians seeking family-friendly entertainment for their children will be able to do so without commercial interruption in the comfort of their living rooms with the new streaming service, Dove channel. The platform functions much like Netflix, except it solely focuses on streaming faith-based and family friendly content. It will also give lesser-known filmmakers an outlet to release their movies and shows.
Cinedigm, a leading content distributor in the U.S., has partnered with The Dove Foundation, an organization which has specialized in rating movies for family friendliness for over 25 years, to launch the new service.
"In the old days the networks got to decide what was broadcast or a movie company got to decide what would be released theatrically," said Bill Sondheim, president of Cinedigm Entertainment Group, at a luncheon at ABC Kitchen on Wednesday. "In the future, that content is going to be available to anyone. And it's going to be up to consumers to decide and vote with their pocketbook, Android or iPhone what it is they want to watch." more >>
For years — until the advent of talk radio, Fox News and social media — the left-leaning mainstream media held a stranglehold over the coverage of news and politics.
The New York Times was nicknamed "The Gray Lady," reflecting its dominance as the most powerful news source in the world. Located in fancy downtown high-rises, with flashy slogans and logos, these media conglomerates presented an illusion of immense power and influence.
The reality was never that good. Like the entertainment industry, much of the media industry functions on slim margins and bare bones operations. Behind the glamorous facade of the left-leaning newspapers and magazines has always been overworked employees, low wages and cutthroat competition — and it's just getting worse. A study this year found that out of 200 common jobs, newspaper reporter finished dead last as the worst job possible. more >>
Televangelist Jim Bakker has warned viewers of his program "The Jim Bakker Show," that they'll be forced to eat human flesh during the fast-approaching End Times unless they buy his food buckets.
"The Bible says they're going to eat their arms, the Bible says they're going to eat their babies, then it says they're going to eat their children. That's what people do when they get hungry," said Bakker.
"When you're huddled in a corner with your grandbaby and they're screaming and crying and there's no food — I don't want that blood on my hands." more >>
