WASHINGTON — While scientists believe the universe began with a Big Bang, most Americans put a big question mark on the concept, an Associated Press-GfK poll found.
My son has a frightful disease: Arachibutyrophobia. Though he didn’t know the technical name of the ailment, he properly diagnosed his case.
Prophecy loves signs from the heavens, and they will deliver Tuesday night with a moonlight spectacle.
TV host Glenn Beck and other stalwarts of the Christian right have attacked the recent blockbuster movie “Noah” as being “pro-animal” and unfaithful to the Bible. Well, yes and no. The film is both pro-animal and faithful to the Bible, at least to the Book of Genesis, our only source for the story of Noah.
It’s often called, “The greatest story ever told,” and it’s taken straight from the Bible in an annual production with a stage and cast of near biblical proportions, as befitting the story. The Easter Pageant of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is performed in the huge grassy bowl in front of the Visitor’s Center of the Mesa Arizona Temple, 525 East Main St. It never fails to be a moving, memorable and uplifting experience that brings people back year after year.
In the beginning of their work together on "Noah," director Darren Aronofsky made Russell Crowe a promise: "I'll never shoot you on a houseboat in a robe and sandals with two giraffes popping up behind you."

As I traveled through my home state of Georgia not long ago, I came upon a little Baptist church stuck away in the woods. That’s not unusual. At times Georgia seems to be overrun with Baptist churches; that and kudzu.
While I am no died in the wool traditionalist, not by a long shot, I sometimes have a bit of a problem with the words we now use to describe the places we gather together as the church. They are called “worship centers” or “multi-purpose buildings” or “auditoriums.” This is unfortunate. I much prefer the word used by our grandparents: Sanctuary.
“The state-sanctioned discrimination bill, SB 1062, will open the door wide for all types of abuse of Arizona citizens. A pastor or business can hide behind the bible if they disagree with interracial marriage, Christians can refuse service to Mormon missionaries trying to buy a meal because the owner believes they are cult members. This bill is being introduced nation-wide. What would Jesus do? He would be kicking butts and taking names! Brewer, Melvin and Herrod will be first.”
LOS ANGELES — With Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" and Ridley Scott's "Exodus" preparing to duke it out for Old Testament auteur supremacy, Hollywood's religious renaissance gets off to a none-too-spectacular start with a chewed-over New Testament appetizer called "Son of God." A clumsily edited feature-length version of five episodes from History's hugely popular 10-hour miniseries "The Bible," this stiff, earnest production plays like a half-hearted throwback to the British-accented biblical dramas of yesteryear, its small-screen genesis all too apparent in its Swiss-cheese construction and subpar production values. Yet while Jesus' teachings have been reduced to a muddle of kindly gestures and mangled Scriptures, the scenes of his betrayal, death and resurrection crucially retain their emotional and dramatic power, which the charitable viewer may deem atonement enough for what feels, in all other respects, like a cynical cash grab.

For years Cathi Herrod and her Center for Arizona Policy have flexed their political muscles and pushed through legislation that represented what she calls “fundamental principles,” often those espoused in the Bible.
