Some are accusing mainstream media outlets of liberal bias for ignoring President Barack Obama's recent erroneous citation of a Bible verse.
Speaking at the funeral service for the police officers killed in Dallas last week, President Obama quoted 1st John 3:18, but in the speech mistakenly cited it as being from the Gospel of John.
"And so I'm reminded of a passage in John's Gospel: Let us love not with words or speech, but with actions and in truth," said Obama, with the White House Press office sending out a version of the speech with an added correction in brackets. more >>
Pastor Miles McPherson of San Diego's The Rock Church believes the best way to battle racism is to do so on "a spiritual level."
During a sermon he preached on Sunday, McPherson centered his message on racial tensions in the United States following the shooting deaths of black men Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile Minnesota, at the hands of police officers last week.
This was followed by racially-motivated shootings in Georgia, Tennessee and Missouri in which civilians and police officers were shot at, leaving one woman dead after being killed by Lakeem Keon Scott in Bristol, Tennessee, while she was driving her car on a highway last Thursday. Later that same day, 12 people were shot during a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, Texas. Eleven of the injured were police officers, five later died from their wounds. The man who shot them, Micah Johnson, said he "wanted to kill while people," specifically white police officers. more >>
