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 Breakfast Club," a morning show created for the hip hop listening audience in New York, has become quite the go-to spot for preachers and christian artists lately. In a recent interview with Hillsong NYC's leader, Carl Lentz, co-hosts DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God, questioned the pastor about his modern day approach to christianity and what causes him to be linked to A-list celebrities.
Lentz was invited to the popular Power 105.1 studio after Kirk Franklin mentioned his name while visiting previously. The team was intriqued by how much Franklin respected the pastor and decided to invite him to be a guest on their show.
During Lentz's appearance, a normally vulgar Charlamagne asked him questions about his unique appearance as a pastor, his ministry and his thoughts on fornication. They inquired about his brand of preaching, and his relationship with global music star Justin Bieber. more >>
