A 58-year-old homeless veteran traveling through Washington state with his dog called "Legacy" has reportedly alleged that a well-known Christian player from the NFL's Seattle Seahawks "belittled" him for being homeless in front of four other players and then tried to offer him $20, which he rejected.
"He (homeless veteran) told me while in Bellevue, WA, 5 well known Seattle Seahawks players walked past him. One of the Seahawks made a rude comment about him being homeless and tried to offer him a $20 bill.The money was declined and that player who claimed to be a Christian was offended. The homeless man told the wealthy Seahawks player that he would not accept money from someone who would belittle him in front of others claiming to be a Christian. Needless to say that player was embarrassed because his friends had witnessed his rude prideful behavior," explained Christian minister Eric Jason Pena in Facebook post last Sunday, which has now gone viral with more than 100,000 shares.
Pena explained in the post that the homeless veteran, who did not reveal his name, made the revelation after complaining to him in a local Starbucks about the way some Christians live. more >>
HBO host Bill Maher is criticizing what he calls the "deeply stupid" far-left for attacking itself on several occasions. As an example he cited Elton John and LGBT activists calling for a boycott of Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's luxury fashion line because of their beliefs supporting the traditional family.
"How deeply stupid has the far left become when gay designers can't get along with gay musicians, when vegans attack vegetarians for not being pure enough. ... I see agnostics and atheists [expletive] at each other. Why is this even a thing? Do you believe in a talking snake? Me neither, we're on the same team!" Maher, an outspoken atheist, said Friday on his "Real Time" show.
His comments refer to John and other LGBT activists who called for a boycott of the Italian designers, who spoke out against same-sex parenting and medical processes that create "synthetic children." more >>
The audio transcript from the "black box" recordings of the fatal Germanwings Flight 9525 has been leaked, revealing that Capt. Patrick Sondenheimer screamed and begged co-pilot Andreas Lubitz to open the door. Lubitz's girlfriend has said in separate reports that she's expecting his child.
While the audio itself was not released, German newspaper Bild released on Sunday the transcript of what it says is on 1.5 hours of audio footage from the cockpit voice recorder. CNN translated the transcript, though pointed out it cannot verify its authenticity.
The transcript allegedly says that Sondenheimer screamed and banged on the locked cockpit door, asking Lubitz: "For God's sake, open the door!" more >>
OUARZAZATE, MOROCCO — The director of National Geographic Channel's upcoming "Killing Jesus" movie says audiences will not be getting the standard issue "wimpy" Jesus, but instead a "muscular" messiah who is every bit as human as the people who made him famous.
"We wanted to go for a muscular Jesus, someone who was in a way a sort of a rock star in his time," director Chris Menaul told The Christian Post in October during a visit to the set of "Killing Jesus" in the rocky plains of Ouarzazate, a city dubbed the "Hollywood of Morocco."
Menaul, known for Fatherland and The Passion of Ayn Rand, noted that news of Jesus' miracles traveled word of mouth, and that every time he entered a village "it was a huge event." more >>
There is a cost to speaking the truth. This realization came nearly 10-years ago when I was asked to speak at the annual conference for the American Baptist...unaware that they were about to divide over ordaining those who embrace the homosexual lifestyle.
Within minutes of beginning my message, people began to leave the large auditorium. Although it was clear that I had struck a nerve, the clearest message came when a woman approached the platform and attempted to disrupt the service. I told her that I would be happy to talk with her after the service.
Afterwards, a large line of people waited to talk to me. I will never forget the very angry 12-year old girl. My heart sank when she said, "I hate everything you had to say. It was mean and hateful!" Though shocked by her comment, I was moved with compassion for such a young life filled with passion for the wrong things. Others asked if I ever received death threats. more >>
