Two Amish girls kidnapped from their family's vegetable stand have been returned and are doing well, officials say.
The girls were abducted by two men, who took them to a home just 13 miles from their home in Oswegatchie, New York. Fannie, 12, and Delila Miller, 7, were taken from their family's vegetable stand on Wednesday and managed to escape from their captors. They then arrived at the home of Jeff Stinson, who returned them to their home.
"The children seemed to be healthy, a little wet and cold," St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain, told the press. "We have the sheriff's department and the FBI speaking with the young ladies," Raid added. "I can't wait until they arrest these people, if there's more than one, because I would love an opportunity to prosecute them." more >>

Once upon a time this man weighed 455 lbs. yet now leads a fitness ministry dedicated to encouraging others on their journey to spiritual, emotional and physical health.
If anyone would have told me four years ago that my life's greatest weakness would become the focal point of my ministry, I would have believed that impossible. At that time, the life I lead today would have been unconceivable. more >>
The American Humanist Association (AHA) is about to learn a very important lesson -- folks around Gainesville, Georgia don't take kindly to out-of-town atheists trying to bully their children.
More than 200 people turned out in defiance of the self-described atheist group early Thursday morning for an impromptu prayer rally in the middle of the Chestatee High School football field.
The previous day, the atheists (acting on behalf of a single, unnamed citizen) sent a letter to school officials demanding that the football coaching staff stop participating in team prayers and that they remove all biblical references and religious messages from team documents. more >>

Actress Grace Johnston has said that she stands firmly with Israel when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; she recently returned from a life-changing trip to Jerusalem and spoke with The Christian Post about the impact that had on her.
"I stand with Israel," Johnston told CP in an exclusive interview. She noted that there are a plethora of celebrities taking sides when they have little knowledge of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine. The Christian actress explained that it's dangerous for celebrities without crucial knowledge to share their views, which can impact their fans and followers, leading to further ignorance of what is truly happening.
"It's amazing … and then I see the news reports from California where they are doing pro-Hamas protests. I feel like everyone has lost their minds. I don't know how you can support Hamas – it's a known fact that they shield themselves and their weaponry with civilians. And then celebrities use their platforms – I don't think unless they know what they are talking about, they should be able to pass their opinions, which can really affect the mindset of young people with no facts whatsoever," Johnston said. more >>
