Pop star Gwen Stefani has been talking about her relationship with God for years, which makes it no surprise that in a recent Instagram post the singer gushed about God answering her prayer after meeting a young boy who said Stefani's music helped him overcome being bullied.
"About three years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God everyday that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world — last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers," she wrote on instagram with the hashtags zero tolerance for bullies, one love, and this is what the truth feels like.

And as they proceeded to pass out condoms by the handful to our school-age children, they told us that religion and morality should be left out of it, in the name of public health and, of course, science.
New research, however, suggests these prophets of prophylactics were wrong — desperately wrong — and that it's time for a fresh look at the issue. more >>
