Recently my long time friend, Lee Grady, highlighted in print the deaths of notable Christians. Ann B. Davis, beloved actress, was one of them. Yet at the same time in a publication on newsstands is the headline that she was really a lesbian!
I don't believe it.

Kelvin Cochran was five-years-old when he realized that he wanted to be a firefighter.
"My family was very, very poor," Cochran told me. "We were living in a shotgun house in an alley – three big brothers, two little sisters."
One Sunday afternoon the Cochran children heard a fire truck stop across from their neighbor's home. Miss Maddie's house was one fire. more >>
Who are the leaders of the "white community"? Who are the leaders of the "Asian American community"?
These questions seem silly given the fact that whites and Asians Americans are considered to be free thinking individuals who do not need ethnic leadership. For reasons that I cannot understand, white progressives and conservatives alike seem stuck in the 1960s whenever they use phrases like "leaders of the black community." What is even more bizarre is the seemingly fetish-like attachment to the archaic notion that people in black communities look to someone like Al Sharpton as a leader.
If there is one thing black progressives and black conservatives have in common it is the shared opinion that Al Sharpton is irrelevant and does not represent "black interests" because there is no person who fills this role. Al Sharpton represents himself and whatever particular non-profit he leads. That's it. Nothing more. more >>
A Colorado history professor who allegedly forced his students to recite an anti-American pledge in class has been cleared of any wrongdoing after a student filed a complaint of partisan bias with the university.
Charles Angeletti, who teaches at Metropolitan State University of Denver, was accused of poor conduct in the classroom after gaining national headlines for requiring his students to say an anti-American version of the Pledge of Allegiance.
Last month Caleb Bonham, editor in chief at the online publication Campus Reform, wrote an article spotlighting allegations of extreme liberal bias by Angeletti in his pledge. more >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham posted a short video of the Ark Encounter project construction site in Kentucky, noting that a significant amount of the initial work has already been done. Ham expressed that it would be impossible for someone to "grasp the enormity of the project" unless they were there at the site.
"Yesterday I spent a couple of hours at the Ark construction site – amazing to see how much progress has been made. It is virtually impossible for anyone to grasp the enormity of this project unless you can be there and walk around it all," Ham posted in a Facebook message on Tuesday. He shared a short video clip of the construction site, which is aiming to build a life-size replica of the biblical Noah's Ark.
"If you look carefully you can see many vehicles in the distance. There are workers installing sewer lines, water, electricity, and pouring concrete for foundations for the three towers that will anchor the structure and house elevators and restrooms etc," Ham describes. more >>
A number of atheist organizations have joined together to release a series of billboards throughout the Gulf Coast this week, presenting messages that tell people that they are not alone if they don't believe in God, and that people can be good "without a god."
The billboards went up across the states of Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, The United Coalition of Reason said in a press release. The campaign marks the formal launch of the Gulf Coast Coalition of Reason, which represents the alliance of 16 nontheistic groups.
"The point of our national awareness effort is to reach out to the millions of humanists, atheists and agnostics living in the United States," said Dr. Jason Heap, national coordinator of UnitedCoR. more >>
