Louisiana rapper Dee-1 recently spoke to Rapzilla about his new release, "Against Us Remix," featuring secular rappers Lupe Fiasco and Big Krit, and defended himself against the backlash he is receiving for working with a secular artist from a different religion.
Dee-1's new remix song features two rappers he considers friends, including Fiasco, a popular hip-hop artist who has publicly talked about being Muslim. However the chorus for the "Against Us Remix," is strictly the Lord's Prayer found in Matthew 6:9-13.
During a sit down with Rapzilla, Dee-1 explained that he and Fiasco have a brotherly relationship. The rapper maintained that having secular artists featured on his track brought the "humanity" to the record. more >>

In a letter sent to schools last week, President Obama explained that longtime bans on Creationism in public schools violated Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Title VII specifically prohibits among other things employer discrimination on the basis of religion and demands that employers give proper accommodation for religious beliefs.
"While until five minutes ago no one considered Title VII applicable to teaching Creationism, we realize that laws are not set in stone and in fact need to develop — but definitely not evolve — with the times," read the letter. more >>
"Set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ." – 1 Peter 1:13.
I like to think I do this. I like to think I set my hope fully on the day when I will receive the "big grace" that is the redemption of my body. But when I look at the way I often react to my ongoing battle with sin, my struggle to see God clearly, and my various forms of [very mild] suffering, I realize I'm less than great at this 1 Peter 1:13 stuff.
