An Arizona-based, self-professed faith healer has filed a lawsuit against a transgender atheist blogger who posted a video attacking his claims that he can heal people of diseases, such as cancer, AIDS and diabetes.
Adam Miller, an ordained minister and faith healer who claims to have had a near-death experience in 1977 and has the ability to heal people, recently filed the suit against Stephanie Guttormson, who serves as operations director for the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason & Science and has publically criticized Miller as being a "charlatan, swindler and snake oil slaesman," and not a medical practitioner.
While The Christian Post wasn't able to contact Miller, and his website and YouTube videos have been removed from the Internet, this reporter did receive a response from Guttormson who spoke openly about the lawsuit. more >>
A local sheriff's office in Western Kentucky has seized 10 homeschool children from their parents after an allegation was filed claiming that the family's "off-the-grid," homestead lifestyle placed the children in dangerous living conditions.
While Joe Naugler was away from the family's 28-acre rural homestead with eight of his kids last Wednesday, his wife, Nicole Naugler, was at home with the two oldest children when Breckinridge County Sheriff's deputies surrounded the family's makeshift cabin home and demanded that Naugler hand over her kids.
Not wanting to hand over her children to the police, Naugler attempted to drive away from her property and was subsequently pulled over by the police officers. The officers then took the two kids into custody and arrested Naugler, who is five months pregnant, for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. more >>

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.
