After a Christian-owned Indiana pizza shop was forced to close down after receiving arson and death threats for saying that it would not cater a gay wedding — when the owner's daughter was asked that question by a reporter — Salon.com posted a tweet from its official Twitter account saying that the pizzeria "is getting exactly what it deserves."
Although the Salon tweet has since been deleted, it was not before the tweet caught the attention of the Daily Caller and conservative Twitter users.
Posted along with a photo of a slice of pizza, the tweet reads: "The anti-LGBT pizza shop in Indiana is getting exactly what it deserves." The tweet also included a link to a short Salon article on the indefinite closing of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana, whose owners told a local ABC news reporter earlier in the week that they would choose not to cater a gay wedding if they were asked to do so. more >>
If we are truly honest with ourselves, then we can all admit that we have been lonely. Almost like there was no answer to the way we had been feeling. But Ben Piershale has an amazing answer to the feeling of constant loneliness.

Feeling lonely can come from a number of things, but many of us ask the question, "how do stop the pain of loneliness?"

WASHINGTON — Evangelical churches need to focus more on preaching biblical truth in order to prepare children to defend historic Christian teachings on social issues like same-sex marriage and abortion from the "distorted" theology being propagated by the Christian left, evangelical author Chelsen Vicari said Wednesday.
At a Family Research Council discussion on her new book, Distorted: How The New Christian Left is Twisting the Gospel and Damaging Faith, Vicari explained that as more mainline Protestant denominations are starting to affirm same-sex relationships and other issues that Christ has labeled as sinful, young Evangelicals are susceptible to caving in and embracing the liberal agenda that they encounter on college campuses and in youth groups, because they don't know enough about the Scripture to defend its guiding principles.
Vicari, who's the evangelical program director at the Institute on Religion and Democracy, shared her own story about how when she was going through her undergraduate studies, her strong conservative Christian convictions were tested and ostracized by left-leaning Christian groups on campus. She eventually folded her convictions to believe that it's acceptable for Christians to be accommodating toward sinful behavior, such as homosexuality. more >>
