Whoever said that rodeos were only for adults? This improvised rodeo in Mississippi has all the trappings of a darn good time.
OK, so it's not like he's riding an actual beast for 8 seconds, but one tiny tot does very well as he tries to stay atop a blue foam horse.
As one boy opens a wooden gate, out comes the hopping wild blue creature, doing everything it can to throw the brave little tyke off its hide. more >>

The sheer horror of China's policy of forced abortion on women who become pregnant with a second child is tortuous. The number of unborn Chinese children — overwhelmingly girls — who have been aborted is staggering. The brutality of the means by which countless Chinese women are subject to abortion surgery is sub-human.
It's welcome news that China has now decided to "allow" women to have two children. But the costs of the past nearly four decades of forced abortion are almost too painful to consider.
It's Halloween, and Christians should see it as an opportunity, not a threat, writes David Mathis, executive editor for desiringGod.org, explaining how believers can "join our King as He haunts the devil and all his minions."
"Christian, you have both a shield and a sword on Halloween," writes Mathis, pastor at Cities Church in Minneapolis/Saint Paul, and adjunct professor for Bethlehem College & Seminary, in a blog post on the designingGod website.
Every fiery shot from Satan, including his massive Halloween campaign, can be extinguished with "the shield of faith," and we are outfitted also for offence with "the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God," he adds, referring to Ephesians 6:16–17. more >>
Two family television watchdog groups are warning parents that the new version of the iconic children's series "The Muppets" is no longer the loveable kids show it used to be and is now exposing children to sexual innuendo and references to alcohol, drug use and adult content every three and a half minutes.
The Parents Television Council and One Million Moms have launched campaigns informing parents that ABC's new adaptation of "The Muppets," which features beloved children's characters Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog, is not suitable for younger viewers.
The first four episodes of the new series, which premiered on Sept. 22 and airs Tuesday evenings during primetime, featured adult content every three minutes and 38 seconds, according to research compiled by PTC. In the four episodes there were 33 different adult references, with 46 percent being sexual and 45 percent related to drug or alcohol use. more >>
Charlotte Hornets guard Jeremy Lin was bullied as a child because of his Asian heritage. Now the Christian sports figure is speaking out about his past struggles in order to help others.
The bullying of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders is the focus of a new White House public awareness campaign called "Act to Change."
Lin, 27, decided to support the movement because of his own experiences, some of which he recalled in a YouTube video shared in mid October."For me, growing up Asian American and trying to play basketball was a bit tough at times," said Lin. "Sometimes people would make fun of me and just say, 'Oh, you're Yao Ming.'" "That's not that bad, but sometimes it would get worse and people would say, 'You're a Chinese import' or 'go back to China' or 'can you see the scoreboard with your eyes?' And then sometimes it got really ridiculous." more >>
