In an entertainment world that routinely mocks Christianity, one big name actor is using his platform to share his love of God.

And he used the opportunity to unabashedly praise God to a crowd of teenagers.
The disturbing reports about the mysterious New Mexico compound were 11 starving children and one little boy’s body were found grew even darker on Wednesday, after court documents were released alleging that the kids were being trained to carry out school shootings.

Most national and international media display an astounding degree of selective perception when covering remarks and actions by Pope Francis. The latest example is the overwhelmingly celebratory coverage of the Pope’s decision to revise the Catholic catechism to express across-the-board opposition to the death penalty.

Friday’s front page excitedly reported: “Pope Declares Death Penalty Always Wrong – Doctrine Change Could Hit U.S. Hardest.”

We now see how it came across as offensive."
During his show on Tuesday night, CBS host Stephen Colbert took it upon himself to sing Democratic Congressional Candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s praises. And he topped it all off by claiming Jesus was a socialist. Ocasio-Cortez is a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, and darling of the Democratic Party. It’s no wonder Colbert has been quick to support her, despite her being endorsed by the New York City chapter of the radical left-wing group, the Democratic Socialists of America.
On Sunday evening, the NBC Nightly News ran a full report hyping a couple of cases in which pharmacists refused to fill a prescription -- one for an abortion and one for transgender hormone treatment.
