Republican presidential candidate and billionaire Donald Trump defended his promise to kill the innocent family members of Islamic State terrorists during Tuesday night's CNN presidential debate in Las Vegas.
After suggesting earlier this month that the U.S. should "take out" the family members of IS militants and adding that IS is so effective because they use "civilians" as shields and the U.S. is fighting a "politically correct war," the real estate mogul was asked to answer how killing innocent civilian family members would set the United States apart from IS.
Trump responded by reasoning that family members of domestic terrorists, in some cases, knew that their sons or daughters were going to commit a terrorist attacks but did not stop them or alert authorities. more >>
What do you get when you gather more than 2,000 church volunteers to help the underprivileged in New Jersey feel the love of Christ during Christmas? More than 200,000 packed meals, of course.
Liquid Church, one of New Jersey's largest non-denominational churches, mobilized an army of volunteers across its eight campuses to pack 240,000 meals – exceeding the original goal of 200,000 – for underserved families throughout "The Garden State" earlier in December. That's an average of 120 meals packed per volunteer. Parishioners and volunteers also wrapped toys and gifts for over 1,000 kids and donated hundreds of winter coats.

How does a teenage gang banger go from breaking into cars and stealing, to hosting a Bible club after school? Just ask Gabriel Salazar.
The day that the gang to which Salazar belonged turned against him — beating him and breaking his ribs because he refused to retaliate against a rival gang member — was a wake-up call for the teen. Gangs couldn't provide the sense of brotherhood and belonging he so desperately sought while growing up without a father.
"I was abandoned when I was a baby by my father," Salazar told The Christian Post. "I was facing issues of abandonment and I was facing issues of rejection. So these two things in a young person's life [are] a combination of toxins that will make somebody second guess, 'am I an accident?'" more >>
