    Police in a small Tennessee town have salvaged a rare painting of supposedly the true face of Jesus from a thief who was trying to sell it to a church. The 150-year-old painting, a Catholic relic based on the “Veil of Veronica,” had been stolen and dumped in a closet for years by a thief, identified as Kelly Ghormley, before she approached a church in Madisonville to sell it, Daily Mail reported Friday. According to legend, when a follower named Veronica from Jerusalem encountered Jesus on the way to Calvary and wiped sweat off His face with her veil, Christ’s...

    Betty White has been touted as having the best T.V. appearance in history by all the major networks. The always funny and politically accurate Saturday Night Live stated that 88 year old Betty White gave a ground breaking performance Saturday night by actually participating in a comedy skit with a BLACK actor. Unnamed and anonymous sources within the NBC broadcast family stated that such ground breaking performances would only have been a dream prior to President Obama's messages of equality and racial harmony given during the course of his Historic Presidency. It was noted by NBC that this message had...

    RIVERDALE, Ga. — A transgender city council member lost a re-election bid in a runoff Tuesday after a lawsuit that claimed she tried to fool voters by running as a woman. Michelle Bruce said that even though a judge dismissed the lawsuit the day before the vote, the suit served its intended purpose. "It was a personal attack," said Bruce, who was seeking a second term. "It was aimed at getting me out." Bruce got 223 votes, compared to 308 votes for Wayne Hall, election returns showed. Bruce, 46, landed one of Riverdale's four council seats in 2003 after running...

    Why I believe in Creation Posted: December 17, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern I was stunned the other day when I asked evolution-believing listeners to my nationally syndicated radio show to call in and tell me why they believed. "Just give me one reason why you accept the theory," I said. "Just give me the strongest argument. You don't have to give me mountains of evidence. Just tell me why I should accept it." Not one evolutionist called in. Meanwhile, the phone banks lit up with dozens of evolution skeptics. Go figure. For more than 40 years, evolution has been taught...

    I was getting my annual mammogram at the Hackensack University Medical Center today. The office was now called the "Betty Torricelli Institute for Breast Care." Her name had to have been added sometime during the last year because I know it had never been there before. I made a VERY large point to their management and public relations people at how odious it was to honor the criminal Senator, even if it was actually his mother. They acknowledged that the Torch had not paid money for this honor (as is customary for named buildings.) The p.r. person told me that...
