The United Kingdom's referendum on leaving the European Union was a global shocker, with a slight majority of Britons helping to pass the ballot initiative.
Commonly called "Brexit", the fallout to the vote was immediate as markets tumbled and David Cameron resigned as Prime Minister.
At the heart of the successful Brexit movement was one man: Nigel Farage. The 52-year-old leader of the UK Independence Party is considered the champion of the effort to leave the EU. more >>
An atheist group has posted a billboard in Mississippi, one of the most religious states in America, telling residents that God and faith will not solve their problems.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation, the nation's largest atheist organization, announced it is putting up a highway billboard on July 1 in Tupelo with the message "God Fixation Won't Fix This Nation," with plans to keep it in place for the entire month.
"We lose sight of human needs when we fixate on gods," said FFRF co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor. "When we have faith in ourselves, we won't need faith in gods." more >>
Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz has listed three "national sins" that she believes are prompting God to back away from America.
"I feel our nation is in a mess at every level, and it's a Romans 1 type of judgment, because God has abandoned us because we have abandoned Him. And I think He weeps as He backs away, because He is turning us over to ourselves," said Lotz, the daughter of world renowned evangelist Billy Graham, on DayStar's "Joni Table Talk" show.
Lotz talked about the importance of prayer and her latest book, The Daniel Prayer: Prayer That Moves Heaven and Changes Nations, and advised Americans to follow the biblical example of Daniel and press through to God. more >>
Does talking about one's pain and suffering give power to the adverse condition or demonstrate a lack of faith in a believer? Is doing so unchristlike?
Those are a couple of the questions addressed in pastor and theologian Jeremiah Johnston's recent book Unanswered, a volume intended to shed light on topics that have largely gone unaddressed within today's Church.
Some believers might feel that expressions of fear or concern about an infirmity or condition somehow surrender their power against it, while others believe that denying those feelings of vulnerability is a sign of faith. more >>
Speaking out against Ken Ham's Ark Encounter theme park that will open to the public next week, Bill Nye, known as "The Science Guy," has argued that there is no way dinosaurs and humans lived at the same time.
Nye shared his thoughts about the large-scale project in an interview with The New York Times earlier this week, where he said: "Humans and ancient dinosaurs did not live at the same time. It's completely unreasonable."

David and Jason Benham, the twin brothers who were fired from an HGTV reality show because of their opposition to gay marriage, said conservative Christians are being targeted in America for their beliefs and need to stand up and thrive in the midst of adversary.
"We see Christians in America and conservatives kind of running because there is a narrative that's now been developed in this country that really targets people of faith. And people of faith often times want to be silent. And now is not the time to be silent. When darkness rises, it's time to turn the light on," the brothers said in an interview with Fox News' "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday.
The brothers promoted their newly released book, Living Among Lions: How to Thrive like Daniel in Today's Babylon, which looks to the biblical example of Daniel for inspiration on how Christians should thrive in the modern world. more >>
