Did Internet giant GoDaddy reject an Arizona software engineer's job application because he was an overweight Christian?
GoDaddy denies the charge. But an attorney for Arizona resident Keith Connolly says his client has rock-solid proof to support the jaw-dropping allegation.
Connolly was recruited for a job with the Internet domain registrar in April 2014. After two telephone interviews and two Skype interviews, he was summoned to GoDaddy's headquarters in Scottsdale. more >>
I've always liked Bruce Jenner. When I was a kid he was an Olympic hero. I must admit I questioned his judgment for marrying into the Kardashians.
But I see him as someone who needs wise counsel, loving help, prayer, and while it may sound cliché, Jesus. I'm betting that what he's getting is advice from people with $$ signs in their eyes, who are successfully exploiting him for personal gain.
So here are some points you need to know about Courage, Sex Change and God: more >>
The youth leader overseeing more than half a million students for one of the world's largest Christian denominations thinks older generations should question themselves over the movement of millennials away from organized religion. Young people, he believes, are often more turned off by how Christians present Jesus than they are turned off by Jesus himself.
The nonpartisan Pew Research Center reports that millennials (those 18-34) are the generation least likely to identify with a particular religion, while San Diego State University researchers have suggested that the decline in religiosity could be attributed to a self-centered, or individualistic mentality.
"Honestly, I think what we need to do is ask ourselves how did the millennial generation become the generation that they are," Heath Adamson told The Christian Post in a recent phone interview. "Let's look at parents, let's look at pop culture, let's look at media and let's ask ourselves. Who's responsible for feeding the millennial generation what they're living off of? Well, we are." more >>
Famous figures Josh Duggar and Bruce (now Caitlyn) Jenner have captured the nation's headlines. Duggar's molestation of his sisters and a babysitter during his childhood is discovered. Jenner's transition from one gender identity to another is revealed. Both news stories unfolded right before our eyes. Both capture our fascination. Both bait our mouse clicks, every time. Why?
While Duggar and Jenner are two different people involved in two very different and morally inequivalent situations, they can still be illustrative of the dangers of the pursuit of celebrity.
The pursuit of celebrity is an idol that urges us on promising fulfillment, affirmation, and a claim in society. It doesn't always deliver. more >>
It is so sad to read the news about the latest sex scandals involving prominent Christian leaders. I pray for them, and I pray for their victims. I also pray that more Christians would not be led into temptation, but delivered from evil.
Too often we fall for Satan's mousetrap. We focus on the cheese, while ignoring the big trap ready to break the neck.
These news stories give us an opportunity to reflect on ways to avoid such scandals going forward. Moses once said that you may be sure that your sins will find you out. more >>
The world, at least the social media world, took note of former Olympian Bruce Jenner unveiling himself as "Caitlyn" Jenner.
My intent is not to shame Bruce Jenner. I can't imagine how confused and conflicted he must feel. Jenner is someone who has been fearfully and wonderfully made. Jenner, like all of us, has been made in God's image. God does not make mistakes and God created Jenner as a man.
This didn't seem to be an issue when Jenner was on the cover of Wheaties as an Olympic champion. Caitlyn didn't win those Olympic medals, Bruce did – as a male. Yes, Bruce Jenner said Caitlyn was there all along in Jenner's struggle with gender dysphoria or gender identity disorder. more >>
