"The 700 Club" host and conservative Christian leader Pat Robertson has expressed opposition to arguing with atheists on social media about the existence of God.
On the Thursday edition of "The 700 Club" program's "Bring It On" segment, Robertson got a question from a viewer named Christine regarding online debates with atheists.
"Whenever I post something on social media about my faith, many atheists comment that what I believe is wrong and try to argue about God's existence," wrote Christine. Should I argue back and try to prove His existence or should I just ignore it?" more >>

There is new information about the botched execution of Clayton Lockett and questions about whether the blunder actually violated international law. Details released from the Director of the Department of Corrections, Robert Patton, reveal that Lockett was tasered hours before his execution and the real reason the execution was not properly carried out.
According to a letter describing the final hours of Lockett's life, Patton states that Lockett was to be removed from his cell in order to receive medical x-rays before the execution. When Lockett refused and became confrontational, he was Ttasered and then taken to the medical room, where it was discovered that he had cut his right arm. He was placed under intense watch by guards and medical personnel, who checked on Lockett every 15 minutes.
Lockett was finally taken to the execution chamber, where a phlebotomist checked for the best vein to insert the IV line. Unable to find a usable vein in Lockett's arms, legs, hands, feet, the phlebotomist decided to insert an IV into the groin area. At 6:23 p.m., the execution began and Midazolam was administered through the IV. Seven minutes later, he was still conscious, but another three minutes later, he was declared unconscious and Vecuronium bromide and Potassium chloride were administered. more >>
