Faith-based Christian groups such as the Family Policy Institute of Oklahoma, the Archdiocese of Oklahoma and The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property held prayer rallies and a unity walk as a way of standing up for God while the local Satanic church, called the Church of Ahriman, held a black mass ritual to show the community part of what goes on during their services.

Once one of the NFL's most promising stars, former quarterback Tim Tebow, is now hoping to make a homerun with an MLB team and he's already selling autographed baseball memorabilia before landing a contract — stirring up a firestorm of criticism.
Tebow will be working out for all 30 big-league teams later this month but is considered to be a longshot by some sports analysts. The biggest dust-up, however, centers on Tebow's move to market baseball collectibles.
