The Bangladeshi wing of the Islamic terrorist group al Qaeda reportedly took responsibility for the latest in a series of murders of atheist writers and bloggers.
Ansar al-Islam, which is linked to al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent, has claimed responsibility for the machete murder of Nazimuddin Samad, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, an organization that monitors jihadist terrorism.
Samad, a student, was brutally murdered last week in the capital city of Dhaka, having been attacked first with machetes and then shot. more >>
The Indiana state police trooper who was fired last week amid complaints that he was preaching about Jesus during traffic stops, said he saw many miracles happen before he got fired and intends to keep spreading the Word of God.
Just two days after his firing, the former state trooper Brian Hamilton, 40, who said God changed his life when he got saved three years ago, was busy preaching to dozens of people on a street corner in Connersville, according to ABC 6.
"Jesus says I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh to the Father but by Me. And When I got saved three years ago, it changed my life," said Hamilton, who is confident "God will provide." more >>
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order banning non-essential state travel to Mississippi over the state's recently signed law offering legal protection to individuals and businesses opposed to gay marriage.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who ordered the raid on the apartment belonging to the producer of last year's undercover Planned Parenthood videos, was accused of being "in bed" with the abortion giant as she is actively using her Senate campaign to advocate for the organization.
Pro-life activists are accusing Harris, an avid Planned Parenthood supporter, of having a severe conflict of interest after she ordered the search of Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden's apartment in Orange County on Tuesday, in which Daleiden's laptop, hard drives and yet-to-be released undercover videos were seized.
Harris, who is running for the United States Senate seat vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, is using her campaign website to encourage visitors to sign a petition calling on federal lawmakers not to strip Planned Parenthood of its over $500 million in annual federal funding, a move brought on by conservatives last year after the release of CMP's series of undercover videos. more >>
While Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has faced opposition for his stances from a variety of activist groups, one has been protesting his rallies by stomping on the U.S. flag and is drawing controversy for its antics.
Fox News reported on Tuesday that the group, which calls itself the profanity-laced name "[Expletive] Your Flag Tour," has been showing up at Trump rallies, most recently on Sunday at a rally in West Allis, Wisconsin, where its members stand and stomp on top of the flag.
The members of the group have said that one of their main messages is standing up against the oppression of black people. One member, who wasn't identified, explained that the group has been protesting at Trump events because of the billionaire businessman's initial refusal to denounce support from former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. more >>
