Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin is countering critics, claiming that he was misquoted in a speech he gave at the Values Voters Summit on Saturday.
Before an audience gathered at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., Governor Bevin spoke about the need for sacrifice to protect and preserve the United States of America.
Critics claimed that the speech encouraged violence in the event of a Hillary Clinton presidency. Bevin posted a comment on his official Facebook page saying that his remarks were taken out of context. more >>
It is never too late to make restitution for past transgressions, even if the person who was wronged is no longer around, says the Rev. Billy Graham.
In an advice column published on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's website on Monday, a person asked the famed evangelist about how to compensate for a past sin.
"I stole some money from my employer (a doctor) over 40 years ago, and I still feel very guilty over it. I'd pay it back (with interest), but neither he nor his medical practice is still around. What does God want me to do? Or does it make any difference now?" they asked. more >>
Renita Smith, a school bus driver with the Prince George's County Public Schools in Maryland, is now being hailed a hero across the country after she single-handedly saved the lives of 20 elementary school children when the bus she was driving suddenly erupted in a blaze on Monday.
"I opened my door, took off my seat belt, and I got my babies off that bus," Smith told NBC Los Angeles.
According to WTVR, the fire which is still under investigation, was reported at about 4:45 p.m. Monday along the 9600 block of 51st Avenue in College Park. The children, all students at Glenarden Woods Elementary School in Prince George's County, all escaped the fire without injury. more >>
I think Peter has gotten a bad rap.
Since childhood I've been told the story of Jesus walking on the water and how Peter was brash, overreactive, spoke without thinking, took a risk and then failed miserably because he's such a loser — he took his eyes off of Jesus (because no one has ever done that!). Jesus is the hero; Peter is a zero.
Wrong (about Peter — Jesus really is a hero). more >>
On Sunday, September 4, before 120,000 people gathered in St. Peter's Square, Pope Francis declared Mother Teresa a saint. Née Agnes Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, she is now "St. Teresa of Kolkota" — though even Francis admitted she would probably still be simply called "Mother Teresa."
Standing in the midst of this iconic moment was Rev. Brian Kolodiejchuk, the man who had been charged with gathering the evidence to prove Mother Teresa's candidacy for sainthood. After 17 years of waiting, he was now enjoying the fruit of his labors. Yet Rev. Kolodiejchuk is known for more than proving Mother Teresa's saintliness — he also played a role in exposing her humanity.
In 2007, Rev. Kolodiejchuk edited Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light. The book, a compilation of private letters and writings of Mother Teresa, shocked the world with the revelation that for almost 50 years the woman whom in life the world considered a living saint experienced a crisis of faith. more >>
