Much has been made in recent days about the appearance of the "alt-right," on the American political landscape with Hillary Clinton tying Donald Trump to the movement in an Aug. 25 Reno, Nevada campaign speech.

A millennial entrepreneur has launched a book company for the express purpose of teaching the Bible and core tenets of Christianity to babies and toddlers.
Danielle Hitchen, a work-at-home mom of two living in the Washington D.C. metro area, was frustrated with the lack of resources aimed at teaching the theological basics of the Christian faith to babies and toddlers so she decided to develop her own. To that end, Hitchen founded Catechesis Books in February, and is set to launch a series of books to catechize the next generation.

The Church of England is condemning a group of gay clerics who are seeking to out gay bishops and other clergy in the Church, arguing that the accusations could spark a witch hunt against priests.
