A public health expert and Seventh-day Adventist pastor was fired by Georgia's Department of Public Health after public officials were assigned to watch and review the content of his sermons on YouTube, official government documents indicate.

Some say that church is a good place to find a spouse, and thanks to a recent partnership between a megachurch and a well-known Christian dating website, that notion might increase in its appeal.
The new initiative, launched in late February, allows congregants of Dallas-based megachurch The Potter's House, the church of popular preacher Bishop T.D. Jakes, to connect with one another on dating website ChristianMingle using dedicated search capabilities, discounted membership fees and personalized offerings exclusive to members of the megachurch.
ChristianMingle provides partner churches with a virtual community where parishioners can connect with other members of their church as well as with the general ChristianMingle community of users.

Members will also have access to the site's relationship experts. more >>
