A 56-year-old jobless alcoholic man, who claims to have at least 40 children with 20 women, costing the U.K. taxpayers $6.7 million in child care and claims, says he wants to have many more children because the Bible says God wants humans to "go forth and multiply."
"I'll never stop [having children]. Never stop. In the Bible, God says go forth and multiply. I'm doing what God wants," Daily Mail quotes Mike Holpin, from Ebbw Vale in Monmouthshire, as saying.
Holpin was the subject of a documentary on Britain's Channel 5. more >>
Rapper and pastor Trip Lee, who ministers under the name Trip Barefield at his Washington D.C. church, recently commented on pop culture and what role it plays in the perception of black men in America at the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission's Leadership Summit that took place on Friday, March 27 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Barefield, who sat on a panel that featured pastor David Prince of Ashland Avenue Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky, worship singer Robbie Seay, and pastor Jason Cook of Iron City Church in Birmingham, Alabama, titled "Pop-Culture and Racial Reconciliation: Hip-Hop, Sports, And Everyday Life," commented on hip-hop's role in reflecting and shaping black culture.
Barefield explained how the music basically does a bit of everything including reflecting inner-city culture as well as shaping it in mostly negative ways. He also talked about rappers using their environment to justify the things they rap about. He also challenged the notion, however, by saying that a lot of these artists use their music to encourage people to continue in the negative things they see. more >>

More than a dozen parents have told headteachers of two London secondary schools that they fear their children have been radicalized and could flee the country to join the Islamic State or other terror groups in the Middle East.
The two headteachers told Nazir Afzal, who was the chief crown prosecutor for northwest England until Tuesday, that some teenagers might be planning to join the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, as the schools break for Easter, according to The Independent.
"Both [headteachers] said they were scared of the Easter break and would be very relieved if all their pupils came back after the holidays," Afzal was quoted as saying. more >>
