Pope Francis has slammed fundamentalism across religions, but warned that there are many Roman Catholics who believe they have "absolute truth" and are fundamentalists themselves.
The Vatican leader took aim at fundamentalism within the Church during an in-flight press conference at the conclusion of his three-country tour of Africa, calling it a "sickness that is in all religions."
"We Catholics have some — and not some, many — who believe they possess the absolute truth and go ahead dirtying the other with calumny, with disinformation, and doing evil. They do evil. I say this because it is my Church," the pope said, according to Catholic News Service. more >>
Pope Francis is set to begin his tour of several African countries on Wednesday, and will be visiting communities torn apart by Islamic militants and Muslim-Christian strife with a message that all people are one human family.

News cameras that documented the miraculous rescue of 33 Chilean miners buried 200 stories below ground for 69 days only scratched the surface of what really happened.
Five years after their rescue, "The 33" is a film that unearths the untold stories of faith, hope and love experienced by both the Chilean miners and their loved ones and rescuers above ground.
The new movie, which hits theaters Nov. 13, does not have the overt Christian themes present in recent faith-based box office hits like "Woodlawn" and "War Room." Still, the faith showcased in the big screen adaptation of the miners' true story is undeniable. more >>
Evangelical preacher Franklin Graham has taken issue with Oprah Winfrey's new documentary series "Belief," and said it's wrong to suggest there are multiple paths to God.
Graham said in a Facebook message on Monday that the new series, which premiered on Sunday, "looks at a number of religions and might make one think there are many paths to God, as Oprah has said in the past."
"There are not many paths to God or to eternal life with Him. A personal relationship with Almighty God through His Son Jesus Christ is the only thing that can fill the void in the human heart," he said. more >>
Nine years after suffering irreversible brain damage in a tragic car accident, Ian Murphy is not physically the same man that his college sweetheart, Larissa, fell in love with.
Despite the odds, the devoutly Christian couple chose true love over comfort, with them recently celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary. They will share their powerful testimony of love, heartbreak and the power of faith on Oprah Winfrey's new "Belief" series. But before the airing of the show, the couple shared their story with The Christian Post.

But less than a year into dating, tragedy struck and a near-fatal car accident would leave Ian paralyzed and suffering from a traumatic brain injury. more >>
