    TYLER, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas woman has a warning for anyone who uses Texas toll roads and uses the TxTag for billing. Birgit Grubbs, of Athens, has used Toll 49 for years, but recently found out she was charged hundreds of dollars in tolls for trips she has never taken on roads in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. After trying to solve the problem herself by calling customer support and filing complaints and getting no resolution, she contacted us. "I was like Holy Moly... there is no way that these charges are mine," Grubbs said. She was shocked when...

    A “transmasculine” teacher at an Oregon elementary school has been awarded $60,000 by her school district as compensation for harassment she claims to have suffered on the job, including being referred to by the wrong pronoun. According to The Oregonian, Leo Soell was born a woman, but now prefers to identify as “transmasculine” and “genderqueer,” meaning she does not consider herself to be male or female. After getting breast cancer in late 2014, she had her breasts amputated to create a more masculine appearance and changed her name to Leo. Once she returned from medical school in May, 2015, Soell...

They can’t seem to get their act together when it comes to pleasing their customers. First they ban guns within their stores because “safety.” Then they began allowing men into women’s restrooms because “equality.” Then they are currently suing a guy who stopped another guy from stabbing a girl to death because…well, because they’re dumb. The American people responded, and as can be expected, Target’s ship has begun to sink. Not only did well over a million...

Inside the vehicle, troopers spotted numerous alcohol containers, multiple cases of beer, and a jug of whiskey. There were two female passengers, ages 16...

Whether people like that idea or not, it is somewhat reflective of our very vicious world.” (In a bizarre bit of time-capsule trivia, multiple critics suggested Trump was inspired by a reality show that ABC had recently yanked before airing, Welcome to the Neighborhood, which would have allowed three white families in suburban Texas to choose their new neighbors from among a...

They’re known as pizzlies or grolars, and they’re a fusion of the Arctic white bear and their brown cousins. It’s a blend that’s been turning up more and more in parts of Alaska and Western Canada. Last week, a strange-looking bear was shot by a hunter in Nunavut, a remote territory that curves around Canada’s Hudson Bay. Its head was large, like a grizzly’s, but its fur was white. The bear’s genetics were not...

    Men are more likely to guess the endings of complex TV crime dramas because women are distracted by the emotion of the story, claims a leading psychologist. Dr David Lewis has said that men remain detached while watching detective dramas such as ITV’s The Secret and BBC1’s Undercover and pick up on hints about the ending that women miss. Dr Lewis said: ‘A man is much more likely to look at that and say “ah ha!” A woman, because she is focused on the emotions, is less likely to spot these things designed to give you a hint. ‘Women tend...

    Venezuelan President Grants Himself New List of Powers in Response to "Threats" Last Friday, May 13, the President of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro signed a new decree establishing an economic emergency that extended the original decree made in January 2016, but which included something called a “state of exception” this time around. The state of exception is intended to allow the government to take “exceptional” measures to control the country’s crisis, as well as to protect the Venezuelan people from whatever the government may consider a threat.

No totalitarian authority nor authoritarian state can tolerate those who have an absolute by which to judge that state and its actions. The Christians had that absolute in God's revelation. Because the Christians had an absolute, universal standard by which to judge not only personal morals but the state, they were counted as enemies of totalitarian Rome and were thrown to the beasts. Amazing the number of similarities between...
