“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.

Saying the legislation would be “unbelievably damaging” to the state, the head of a major economic development group is urging Gov. Jan Brewer to veto legislation expanding the ability of businesses to use their religion to deny services.
What would 2014 and beyond look like if we as people decided to generously share both our life in faith and money with no expectation of return? Well, it would set us free to experience blessing. A few days ago a total stranger shared generously with me. When I tried to thank her and give back, she refused with a smile on her faith. It caught me off guard. It was an action that was so counter cultural. We live in a world where we give and usually expect something in return. In our popular market driven worldview, our money and faith lives are linked in that they are both means of reciprocity. I trade my time and talent to get money, and then I trade money to get what I need or want.
AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Capital, the Live Music Capital of the World, the Velvet Crown, Bat City or simply River City. Residents of Austin claim many titles and are known for their slogan: "Keep Austin Weird." Some locals pejoratively call their hometown "festival city," since there seems to be one every weekend, such as South by Southwest or Austin City Limits Music Festival. But most festival-goers don't realize Austin is also home to the first photograph, a Gutenberg Bible and the world's largest urban bat colony. And the best thing for a city that prides itself on environmentalism is that all of the sites can be visited in a single day's walk, and all of them are free.

I bet we all know the exclamation of “eureka” attributed to Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor and astronomer, Archimedes. As the story goes, Archimedes was taking a bath. He noticed that the level of the water rose as he got into the tub, and realized in that great epiphany moment that the volume of water displaced by his body could, with a little mathematical maneuvering, be used to determine his body’s density. According to rest of the story, he was so excited he jumped out of the bath, and ran naked through the streets shouting “eureka,” which translated into English means, “I’ve found it!” History doesn’t seem to have any comment on his lack of clothing!

Why does the Arts and Entertainment Television Network feel that the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights don’t pertain to their employees? As far as I know, President Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have not yet abolished Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion, although I may be wrong.
“Will the supporters of the world’s most expensive sheriff help me pay some of my property tax bill? I didn’t think so. I’m wondering how much of the multi-million dollar settlements come out of the bank account of the self-proclaimed ‘toughest sheriff in America’?”
Once you peel away the wrapping and the tinsel, nothing speaks as profoundly to the heart of Christmas as “The Messiah” does.
“If corporations are people too, and should have religious rights, how come the Bible has never spoke of a corporation making it to heaven in the form of a holy spirit. It’s an insult to all those who believe and makes their prayers seem cheap.”
Rita Coolidge has charted hits in almost every genre and won just about every music accolade possible, including two Grammy Awards.
