In a video Terrell posted to YouTube in late September, she admitted that sin surrounded her during her days on the road with the WWE.

Responding to a question sent by an employee of a civic organization, evangelist Billy Graham acknowledges that while no pastor is perfect, it's "wrong, and a sin in the eyes of God" for Christians to criticize their pastors.
"Why do some people seem to enjoy criticizing their pastor?" reads the question sent to the 96-year-old evangelist, according to the website of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, now headed by his son, the Rev. Franklin Graham.

CHARLOTTE – The National Christian Conference on Apologetics, hosted by Southern Evangelical Seminary, kicked off in Charlotte, North Carolina, Friday, lifting its theme from Richard Weaver's seminal book Ideas Have Consequences.
Weaver (1910 – 1963), a conservative intellectual, penned the book to help formulate a solution for the decline of Western civilization.
"Everywhere we look, both here in America and around the world, we see the truth of that statement as we see the ever-widening concentric circles of the consequences of false ideas that have led people and whole societies into destruction and heartache," declared Southern Evangelical Seminary President and Christian Post Executive Editor Dr. Richard Land. more >>
