Over 1,000 Christians of different denominations gathered in Oklahoma City to pray as a Satanic black mass was held inside a city building Monday night.
Faith-based Christian groups such as the Family Policy Institute of Oklahoma, the Archdiocese of Oklahoma and The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property held prayer rallies and a unity walk as a way of standing up for God while the local Satanic church, called the Church of Ahriman, held a black mass ritual to show the community part of what goes on during their services.
Catholics, Methodists, Pentecostals, Baptists, Episcopalians, and Christians from other denominations united to present an alternative to attending the black mass, which also included the Satanist ritual of the "consumption of Mary." more >>
A staunch atheist kindergarten teacher in Seattle has shed her atheism and turned to Christ just months after her ill mother was miraculously healed and doctors couldn't explain how.
Kim Menon, a kindergarten teacher at Kenmore Elementary School in Kenmore, Washington, who espoused atheist beliefs for nearly 15 years, opened up to The Christian Post Tuesday night about how she finally came to embrace Christianity and how she is overcoming her traumatizing life experiences, suicidal thoughts and bouts of depression.

One of America's largest secular legal organizations is pressuring a Mississippi college football coach to end the team's tradition of praying before and after each practice, suggesting that having coach-led prayer at a public college is unconstitutional.
The East Mississippi Community College football team, which was featured on the 2016 Netflix documentary series "Last Chance U," has come under fire from the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist legal group which claims that the coach is "domineering" and "calls into question whether the players' participation can be considered voluntary."
As the Netflix series showcased the EMCC Lions in their unsuccessful quest to win their fourth-straight National Junior College Athletic Association National Football Championship in 2015, the EMCC head coach Buddy Stephens was shown regularly leading his team in the Lord's Prayer. more >>
LOS ANGELES – Jack Huston, who stars in Paramount Pictures and MGM's reboot of "Ben-Hur" as Judah Ben-Hur, maintains that every time he watches the film he takes something valuable away from it.
"That was very emotional actually. The actual act is very effective, the crucifixion that is followed by forgiveness, everyone was affected up there on that mountain," Huston told The Christian Post at a recent screening, about the final scene of the film where forgiveness is put to the test.
"Forgiveness is not thinking that you have to be in control of everything [but more] so being able to let things go," the actor continued. "To forgive someone means you have to be in control of them in a sense, so I think understanding other people and it not being all about you [helps]." more >>

A Satanic invocation kicked off a local assembly meeting in an Alaskan borough last week, sparking debate about whether the assembly should do away with its tradition of opening meetings with prayer.
According to the Alaska Dispatch News, the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting last Tuesday was opened up with a prayer from local resident Iris Fontana, a member of a local Satanic Temple.
