    Chana Shapiro Stillman is appalled at what she discovered while doing research for the JCPA. Some UK church authorities, significantly the Methodists, are substituting a political agenda for Christianity. They have disavowed the Bible because it's too "Jewish " and associate with anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian groups under the guise of religion.

    Boy, I wish I spoke more Italian. So I got an unexpected business stopover in Rome for two days, and I figured, great I'll check out the Vatican, etc. I checked into a nice little hotel right next to the Vatican, and took a nap before sight-seeing this afternoon. At first I thought, "this is great." Must be some sort of holiday I didn't know about. No lines, no tickets needed. But no curators? No security? I always heard about how they even made sure you were dressed moderately. The art was fantastically beautiful, but I expected guides? I wandered...

    In the ’70s New York Magazine ran occasional contests, in one case asking readers to submit greeting cards for unlikely occasions. Nanni Moretti’s Habemus Papam — or We Have a Pope — screening in competition here at the festival, could use one of those entries as its tagline: “Saw your smoke, now you’re Pope, congrats!” Actually, it’s kind of a bummer to be Pope, which is the idea behind this way-too-gentle but still potentially incendiary comedy by Nanni Moretti (director of the 2001 Palme d’Or winner The Son’s Room). Michel Piccoli stars as a sad old cardinal who’s surprised to...

    A US court has heard how it cost a great-grandson of an oil industry tycoon at least $ 6 million after he took his computer in to the workshop to repair it after it was infected with a virus. The victim was probably jazz pianist and composer Roger Davidson, an heir of oil tycoon Conrad Schlumberger, although the authorities have refused to name him. The victim took his computer to 36-year-old Vickram Bedi and his girlfriend Helga Invarsdottir after it developed a virus. According to prosecutors, the pair cooked up a scheme which convinced Davidson that his life was in...

    The thusfar somewhat questionable cast of the new Three Stooges movie just got a sizable comedic boost with the addition of Larry David. The Curb Your Enthusiasm star and Seinfeld co-creator will be playing a nun by the name of Mother Mengele. This is funny for at least three reasons: 1) David is a man, and nuns are women. 2) David is Jewish and nuns are Catholic. 3) His character has the same last name as Josef Mengele, the Nazi physician responsible for some of the regime's most cruel, grisly and depraved "experiments." Classic Farrelly brothers. Totally classic. No word...

    Earlier this week, humorist Ricky Gervais presented his arguments for atheism and why he thought he was a better Christian than many Christians. In this follow-up essay, writer Lee Strobel offers his defense of Easter. It was the worst news I could get as an atheist: my agnostic wife had decided to become a Christian. Two words shot through my mind. The first was an expletive; the second was “divorce.” I thought she was going to turn into a self-righteous holy roller. But over the following months, I was intrigued by the positive changes in her character and values. Finally,...

Every Holy Week we witness a cavalcade of lunacy and I believe this year we might be “enjoying” the wackiest Holy Week ever. My evidence is as follows: Time Magazine picks this week to run the headline, “Is Hell Dead?” This is, presumably, a knock off of their infamous “Is God Dead?” cover in the 60’s. Well in another few years I’m sure we’ll be running the headline “Time Magazine IS...

Following a surge of infants competing for prime Saturday morning baptism time slots this spring, the frequency of same-sex baptisms has not gone unnoticed. "Last weekend, I baptized Chris, Pat and Sandy, who were all the same sex," said associate pastor Father Mendez. Although the Vatican has taken a strong position opposing same-sex marriage, it has not made a formal determination on the potentially explosive issue...

    Catholicism for Everyone ^ | 4/1/2010 | Phil Lynch
    Today is April 1, 2011, and therefore April Fool's Day. The question is can Catholics legitimately participate in it without sinning? This is a question which deserves to be addressed because most Catholics do participate, but we must always follow our moral compass, no matter the time of year. The main moral issues brought up in April Fools include lying, and causing harm to others. "Harm" of course can be accomplished in a multitude of ways, and therefore most sins could come under this categorization. First, let's address lying. Often, April Fools jokes involve convincing someone that something which is...

"It gives us a whole new picture of how the angel Gabriel told Mary she'd one day give birth to Jesus Christ," said Father Peter Emmel. Now thousands of faithful, in nearly all Christian denominations, will celebrate the feast of the Biblical 'Enunciation,' in which the Virgin Mother asked Gabriel if he could please repeat his announcement. Christians usually celebrate the angel's declaration on March 25th of each year. The new Enunciation feast will also...

    Maybe it's all the church socials, but a new study finds that those who attend religious activities are more likely to gain weight than those who don't go to church as often. Religious involvement is linked to many positive health outcomes, such as happiness, lower rates of smoking and alcohol use, and even a longer life. But research has also suggested that middle-aged adults who are more religious are more likely to be obese. Past data have noted only a correlation between religiosity and weight gain, however; they did not show whether participating in religious activities leads to weight gain,...

The testimony of these relatives of Joe Smith hanged these girls as witches. A belief in witchcraft was passed through the Smith generations.

Its function is to produce a fluid that makes up approximately 30 percent of the volume of semen.
