The family of late singer Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, has filed a lawsuit against her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who they claim physically and emotionally abused the actress and stole from her prior to her being found unresponsive in a bathtub on Jan. 31. On Wednesday, Brown's aunt announced that she has been taken off life support and is under hospice care.
Bedelia Hargrove, Brown's court-appointed conservator, filed a civil complaint against Gordon in Georgia's Fulton County Superior Court yesterday.
I had some remarkable interaction on Twitter this past Tuesday night. Not only was it eye-opening, it also provided a window into the mass confusion that is affecting our society.
Things began with a tweet I posted Sunday night (Father's Day) saying, "If Bruce Jenner is really a woman, how come his family celebrated Father's Day with 'her'? How can you be a female father?"
In response, a young lady name Andi wrote, "ur stupid as heck!" more >>
Cosmetic surgery procedures are on the rise across the United States, with an estimated 15.6 million procedures in 2014, a 3 percent increase from the previous year. While it remains unknown what percentage of Christians make up the millions undergoing these vanity procedures each year, believers who've suffered from botched surgeries are now declaring the practice sinful, but not everyone agrees.
Earlier this month, an annual report released by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons revealed that more Americans are turning to cosmetic surgery procedures to enhance their appearance. Procedures like breast augmentations, facelifts and liposuction are among the top surgical procedures for cosmetic surgery enthusiasts striving for perfect beauty.
For Christians like Brazilian model Andressa Urach, who almost lost her life due to a botched surgery in December last year, she has seen the light and now believes that cosmetic surgery is a sin because God told her so. more >>

A third-grade teacher and an assistant principal at a North Carolina elementary school have resigned after facing strong backlash over the teacher's decision to read a book about two gay princes falling in love and getting married aloud to his class without first seeking parental consent.
In April, Omar Currie read the book King & King, a tale about two princes who get married, to his third grade class at Efland-Cheeks Elementary School after one of his students told him about how he was insulted by other kids in the class who called him gay.
It's Oct. 1, 1992. The Milwaukee Brewers are playing the Seattle Mariners. The Brewers were two games out of first place with only four games left in the season. My dad steps up to the pitcher's mound and pitches 10 innings. In those 10 innings, he gave up only two runs on just four hits. For those who know baseball, you know this is extremely difficult to do. My dad got the 7-2 win over the Mariners that night, and in doing so, kept the Brewers in the pennant race.
My dad had made it to the "top." He had achieved what most boys dream about achieving. When he was little, he told me that he used to sleep in his uniform the night before a game; he was that excited and that dedicated to America's pastime. If that tells you anything, making it to the Major Leagues was his dream and would have made his life complete. Or at least that's what he thought.
One day, my dad was standing on the mound with thousands of fans cheering his name, and it hits him. Something was still missing. How could that be possible? He had gained everything that the world tells us is important: riches, fame, the whole nine yards. But he still wasn't satisfied. Then, he met his Savior Jesus Christ. Someone had the courage to tell my dad that he was a sinner and that without knowing the forgiveness and love of his Father, he would continue to be miserable—no matter what kind of baseball season he had or how much money he made. That night, my dad decided that being in a relationship with his Creator was much sweeter and more fulfilling than any accolade or worldly accomplishment. Upon meeting his Father, the void was instantly filled. My dad played 10 years in the Majors, and when he finally retired, what did he do? He did what every retired ball player does: he became a pastor. more >>
