Columnist and political commentator Ann Coulter has slammed missionary Dr. Kent Brantly for choosing to serve in Liberia rather than the United States.
"Why did Dr. Brantly have to go to Africa? The very first 'risk factor' listed by the Mayo Clinic for Ebola – an incurable disease with a 90 percent fatality rate – is 'Travel to Africa.' Can't anyone serve Christ in America anymore?" Coulter wrote in her column on her website.
Brantly has expressed his faith and the desire he had to serve. more >>
Actress Grace Johnston stars in the new film "CAMP," now out on DVD, and she recently spoke with The Christian Post about stalking the producers for her role in the movie and not compromising while searching for work in Hollywood.
"CAMP" tells the story of a 10-year-old boy named Eli who attends a camp for kids in the foster system. Johnston, who has been active in Hollywood since the 1980s, plays Tammie Parker, the camp's director. It is inspired by a true story and was shot at Hume Lake Christian Camp in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

WASHINGTON – Real love is the "common denominator" among people who break free from pornography, says faith blogger and recovering porn addict Matt Aujero. Speaking for a summer Theology on Tap series Tuesday, Aujero recounted his own struggles with pornography as a college student and later as a husband. In those times, he said, the real love of God, his brothers in Christ and his wife rescued him.
Real love, Aujero told the crowd of young adults, is "something that porn can never ever measure up to" because real love sets higher expectations than settling for self-fulfillment. Porn, he explained, "prevents men and women from becoming the men and women they were meant to be for God, for their significant others and their loved ones."
The Catholic writer behind the blog CatholicFriedRice.com noted that porn breaks up one in four marriages and even may lead to erectile dysfunction. Most notably, Matt discovered that porn is a poor way to fill the void that has long existed in his own life. more >>
Three states filed appeals with the U.S. Supreme Court over recent decisions declaring their state-level marriage bans unconstitutional.
Utah, Virginia and Oklahoma have filed the appeals earlier this week as numerous courts across the country consider lawsuits against the various state marriage amendments passed via referendum from 2004 to 2012.
Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes said in a statement that his duty is to legally defend the will of the state's voters, a majority of whom supported the state's marriage amendment. more >>
Ebola victim Dr. Kent Brantly is reportedly improving every day since being transported to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta last week, and an expert in the field of infectious diseases has said that there is no need for Americans to worry about contracting the disease.
Dr. Rossi A. Hassad, a member of the American College of Epidemiology told The Christian Post that there is actually no need to be concerned about the disease spreading.
"From a scientific perspective and based on evidence, panic is not warranted, but the general public does not have that knowledge or information. So when it comes to the general population, and given that when people think of Ebola they think of movies they've seen or documentaries … that's more fiction than it is infection. There is a version of that that is real, and that is a severe case of Ebola, which is when the patient progresses to end-stage and begins hemorrhaging from every organ, internally and externally. Sometimes that is what is portrayed by the media as scary, but most patients don't get there," Hassad explained. more >>
