Former professional wrestler CM Punk of World Wrestling Entertainment fame says God has better things to do than cheer on a fighter during an MMA cage match, and instead of thanking Jesus, athletes should be thanking their coaches who helped them win.
Punk, who's training for his first mixed martial arts bout, explained his views on faith and sports last week to MMA HEAT's Karyn Bryant.
During the interview, Bryant asked Punk, a professed atheist, his opinion about when MMA fighters thank God for having succeeded in a bout. more >>

NBC has announced that "A.D. The Bible Continues," a program based on the book of Acts from the husband-and-wife producers of Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, has been canceled after its first season.
"The numbers were too soft for a renewal on NBC," reported Cynthia Littleton, managing editor at Variety, last Friday.

An Islamic theologian responsible for teaching ISIS militants "jihad 101" has turned to the Bible after growing "sick of the killing" and finding himself yearning for something "better," according to a Christian missionary who works in the Middle East.
The Christian missionary, introduced as just "Julian" during a recent interview on The Voice of the Martyrs Radio program, believes "ISIS is being used to reveal something of the dark heart of Islam."
"As I say that I feel a bit reticent because I know that many, many Muslims want to distance themselves and are embarrassed by it and are great people," Julian added.

Scanlan-Holmes. more >>
