LaVern Vivio, a 52-year-old Christian radio personality and mother of four from Springfield, Tennessee, revealed recently that she once struggled with gender identity issues as a teenager and expressed sympathy for Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner.
"I am a 52-year-old woman and mother of four. A wife for almost 26 years but I wished I had been born a boy," Vivio began in a blog post last Thursday.
"Probably until I was well into junior high and maybe even high school I was fairly convinced God had simply mixed me up with John Mark, the name my parents had selected if I had been born male," she continued. more >>
HBO host and outspoken atheist Bill Maher has responded to what he says are conservative politicians "whining" about Christianity being under attack in America, and said that Christians are not being persecuted. He also took a shot at the Duggar family from the "19 Kids and Counting" reality TV show and the recent molestation scandal, by calling them "the biggest freaks in the world."
He said on Friday on "Real Time with Bill Maher" that "conservatives who constantly whine that Christianity is under attack from liberals have to explain why there are over 300,000 churches in the U.S., but only 400 Whole Foods."
Maher added: "Clearly, your side is winning." more >>

Perhaps he should have gotten her the Happy Meal. A man who recently proposed to his girlfriend of two years at the McDonald's restaurant where they first met with a ring stuck in the bun of a Crispy Chicken Deluxe meal did not get the laugh he was expecting when she painfully turned down his proposal as a "joke."
The proposal, which was recorded and posted to YouTube by the rejected man under the username Joseph Ann on June 2, has already gone viral with more than half a million views as of Friday afternoon.
"I met my girlfriend 2 years ago in LA. I've never been good at planning in advance which is why we wound up ending our first date at this exact McDonalds. She joked for months about how 10 years down the road I would probably propose to her in a chicken nugget box so I thought she would love when I surprised her this way. She didn't love it like the way I thought she would. We agreed to wait longer until it's time to get engaged," the man wrote in the description of the video on YouTube. more >>
