A 19-year-old Christian pizza delivery driver says he has forgiven the attacker who stabbed and carjacked him outside of an emergency room while he was delivering an order.
Josh Lewis, who attends Boyce College, a Southern Baptist Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, has worked as a pizza delivery driver for Spinelli's Pizzeria for about nine months. On Sunday, Lewis was tasked with delivering a pizza to the emergency room of nearby Norton Hospital, which turned out to be not such a routine run.
A statement released by the seminary explains that a man confronted Lewis at his Jeep Cherokee and ordered that he hand over his keys. Lewis then saw that the man was wielding a knife and quickly dropped the keys and fled toward the hospital. However, the perpetrator chased down Lewis and stabbed him in the back and then took off with Lewis' SUV. more >>
Presidential candidate and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, along with the conservative group Leadership Institute, have started an online petition calling for the liberation of America's universities and colleges from the influence of "liberal extremists."
Even though the petition is not clear on what specific actions signers are endorsing, it acknowledges that "liberal radicals" have controlled universities in the United States "for more than a generation," and because of that, it has led many of America's inspiring young minds to embrace a more secular and liberal worldview.
"Join Sen. Rand Paul — sign the national petition to save our students!" the petition urges. "Whereas, these institutions of higher learning have become little more than left-wing indoctrination centers dedicated to brainwashing the next generation of America's leaders." more >>

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has promised to back a path to "full and equal citizenship" for illegal immigrants, and has accused Republicans of treating illegals as "second class."
"This is where I differ with everybody on the Republican side. Make no mistake, not a single Republican ... is clearly and consistently supporting a path to citizenship. Not one," Clinton said during a campaign stop in Nevada on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press. "When they talk about legal status, that is code for second-class status."
Clinton further said that she backs President Barack Obama's executive actions that allow some with an illegal status to temporarily stay and work in the U.S. The president has also sought to expand a program that protects people from deportation if they were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. more >>

Dallas Theological Seminary, one of the top 20 seminaries in the U.S., revealed Tuesday that the school's president, Mark L. Bailey, apologizes for racism "every year" after graduate Jimmy King, who now serves as senior pastor of Proclamation Church in Orlando, revealed that he was once told "we've never placed a black graduate to a white church" when he tried getting help from the school in finding a job.
"In the last year, I went to the placement office, I said 'I'm ready to be placed.' They said, 'we've never placed a black graduate to a white church,'" King, who graduated in 2006, recalled at the Reconciled Church Summit in Orlando, Florida, last Wednesday. more >>
