Brandy Norwood recently opened up to Oprah Winfrey about how some of the greatest tragedies in her life brought her closer to God.
Brandy, the 35-year-old singer and actress, appeared on "Oprah: Where Are They Now," to speak with the 60-year-old media maven about her life. The performer revealed that a fatal car accident in 2006 that resulted in her accidentally killing a woman while behind the wheel was the worst moment in her life.
"You never wake up thinking that … today's the day that something like this would happen," Brandy told Oprah. "Being involved in something that tragic, and I couldn't believe it, and I don't like to think about it because I don't think that is something I could ever get over or truly understand, but that was one of the worst times of my life." more >>
Sir Elton John is world famous and deservedly so. This billionaire singer is one of the most creative talents we have. But when he attacks Christian missionaries in Africa and other Third World regions, his message is off-key. Instead of "Crocodile Rock," he's peddling a Crocodile Crock.
As a mega-star, Sir Elton is free to say whatever he likes. His native Britain and the U.S. are still free countries. But his belief that the worst thing about AIDS is the "stigma" attached to it is bizarre. We thought the worst thing about AIDS was the disease itself. Even here, however, Sir Elton is free to disagree with us.
What is wholly offensive, however, is Sir Elton John's attack on Christian missionaries is being funded by U.S. taxpayers—Us!—and distributed to the very nations that are in dire need of help. This Voice of America video is titled "AIDS 2014—Living in the Shadows." It's a series of stories of truly terrible treatment of people suffering from AIDS, or survivors whose family members died of AIDS. There's nothing wrong with showing compassion for these desperate people. more >>

In their most recent explanation of their theological position, Gungor tweeted late Wednesday night: "For those who heard rumblings of apostasy or scandal, we'd like to clear the air. Fundamentalists, 'I'm with you.'"
Included with the tweet was a link to a blog post, titled "I'm With You," from Michael Gungor addressing the ballooning controversy and apologizing to fans who may have been under the impression that they were fundamentalist Christians. more >>
