Cats. What can you say about them? They purr, they scratch, they meow, and they steal toys from the neighbors.
In a video captured by cat owner Borut Birsa and uploaded to YouTube in mid October, a real feline decided to create its own companionship.
The cunning kitty pays a visit to the neighbors, clamps its jaw around a plush stuffed toy tiger, and carries it across the street to a meadow. more >>
A Ugandan woman was murdered by a Muslim mob for continuing to share her Christian faith even after her family had been warned to stop doing so.
Mamwikomba Mwanika, a Christian mother of eight, last week opened the door of her home in Kalampete village to see a mob of Muslims who wanted to see her husband and reminded her that they have already been warned to stop preaching about their faith. The crowd reacted angrily when they learned that the Ugandan woman's husband was not home, and she was dragged outside and beaten to death, according to a Morning Star News cited by Christian Today (CT).
"Your husband has followed the religion of his brother, and we had warned you people to stop these activities," CT quotes the mob's statement to Mwanika. "But our message has landed on deaf ears." more >>
NEW YORK — Six years ago when she was still named Catherine Rohr, Catherine Hoke, 38, was an object of shame and she wanted to die.
The Christian founder of the nationally acclaimed Prison Entrepreneurship Program had found herself deep in the throes of a sex scandal that collided with everything she was supposed to believe and she just wanted to end it all.

Using data compiled by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Pew found that of 4,705 reported fire incidents at places of worship from 1996 to 2015, 51 percent were ruled intentional.
"Fires caused by arson are far more common at houses of worship than in most other kinds of structures," according to ATF figures reported by Pew reported earlier this week. more >>
City Harvest Church founder Sun Ho was officially ordained as a pastor at the church only days before her husband, Pastor Kong Hee, and five other CHC leaders were found guilty of funneling millions into her popstar career.
Yahoo News Singapore posted pictures and a video shared by Kong of the ordination, which apparently took place on Oct. 19.
"The 2-minute clip shows Ho being ordained by someone who appears to be Michael Scales from New York's Christian College, as well as her husband Kong, who was one of the six church leaders declared guilty for misappropriating church funds to finance Ho's singing career," the article states. more >>
Miracle #1: Congress is on the verge of approving a major criminal justice reform bill. Miracle #2: Republicans and Democrats are both backing it.
It's no secret that most Americans disapprove of the way Congress is doing its job, and by "most" I mean an overwhelming majority. The reason most give is that Congress doesn't seem to get much done. That's why I'm delighted to tell you about a rare exception, one that would have given Chuck Colson no end of joy.
On October 1st a bipartisan group of senators introduced what is being called "the most historic [criminal justice] reform proposal in decades." It's called the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act. more >>
