Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson of the cable network's "The Real Story" has recently taken hits from film critics for her acting debut in "Persecuted," a new movie about a preacher-turned-fugitive who is framed for murder.
"I'm just cracking up at the critical reviews," she told the Hollywood Reporter. "The way in which they write the criticism is so transparent, because they automatically hit me for who I am."
The Christian Post recently interviewed Carlson via email to talk about the movie, her faith, and journalism. The interview is below. more >>
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas had no love for HBO's deviantly hedonistic vampire show "True Blood" last Tuesday after the show mocked him and Texas Republicans as "a**holes" and "c*nts" then showed them being murdered mercilessly in a politically loaded episode wryly titled "Lost Cause".
The offensive July 20 episode of "True Blood" highlighted scenes depicted by the characters Eric Northman and Pam De Beaufort who are forced to attend a fictional gala for Sen. Cruz at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in search of a girl responsible for a vampire-killing disease.
As the vampires discuss plans to snatch the girl from the gala, another vampire and the girl's sister Amber Newlin tells them: "Security is going to be tight, and they only invite a**holes." more >>
Kierra Sheard has a lot to celebrate with a chart-topping new album and historic position on BET's "Sunday Best," but the daughter of a renowned preacher and gospel music legend has no problem admitting her struggles.
Kierra, 27, has always had a powerful voice that she has used to sing for the Lord in the choir of her father's church since the age of six. As the daughter of Grammy award winning singer Karen Clark Sheard of the gospel music group The Clark Sisters, Kierra is no stranger to the gospel music industry.
But with four albums under her belt, the daughter of Bishop J Drew Sheard decided it was time to offer the world something more than Sunday morning Praise and Worship songs. Kierra decided that her fifth album, "Graceland", would feature many of her own insecurities and issues on her walk with Christ. more >>
A tawdry and titillating TV trend is underway. Seven, that's right, seven shows are being rolled out featuring one central theme: complete nudity.
Romans 1:21-32, written to an enlightened civilization that completely destroyed itself, lays out a pattern repeated throughout history that has become America's story:Reject truth Lose discernment Experience moral chaos
Here's the deal: the crisis in our culture is a crisis of truth. Unless we categorically and decisively reject the secularist, moral relativism of 21st century America, we are doomed. This is not a scare tactic; this is sober reality. Our hope is that God in His mercy would send a spiritual awakening reversing this trend before it's too late. more >>

"Preachers of LA," the faith-based reality show that sparked controversy and critical debate over its flashy season one premiere, returns to the Oxygen network next month with what appears to be more sobering developments in the ministries and lives of its star Christian ministers.
"Season two is full of self-discovery and change with growing families and ministries, incredible women of strength beside them, and ever-changing relationships," according to a press release from Oxygen Media.
What is clear from a new season two supertease trailer is that Bishop Noel Jones and his longtime friend and potential love interest, Loretta are confronted by Bishop Ron Gibson and his wife about the pair's unusual relationship. The confrontation over the status of Jones and Loretta's relationship, which Gibson insists the world needs to know about, apparently causes a "devastating rift" between the couples. more >>
