    The man who threw the infamous Pachamama statue into the Tiber River has revealed his identity today in a video explaining why he removed the "pagan idol" from Santa Maria in Transpontina church near the Vatican last month. Alexander Tschugguel [pronounced Choo-goo-el], 26, of Vienna Austria spoke to Lifesite co-founder John Henry Westen, telling him, "for me it was really bad, because I saw in those statues... a break of the First Commandment."

    This was done for only one reason: Our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, his blessed Mother, and everybody who follows Christ, are being attacked by members of our own Church. We do not accept this! We do not longer stay silent! We start to act NOW! Because we love humanity, we can not accept that people of a certain region should not get baptised and therefore are being denied entrance into heaven. It is our duty to follow the words of God like our holy Mother did. There is no second way of salvation. Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat!...

    A Presbyterian Church (USA) congregation in New York made news this week after it featured the sculpture of a pagan deity in its chancel. The United Presbyterian Church of Binghamton hosted “the Sviatovid idol” which depicts a ninth-century Slavic deity, as part of a September 6-7 festival of lights. Sviatovid (alternately known as Svetovid, Svantovit, Sventovit, or Svantevit) was a local Slavic god of war, fertility, and abundance in the Baltic region. In the early twentieth century, an idol was discovered near the Zbruch River in Western Ukraine (accessible with free JSTOR account). This idol pictured was originally thought to...

    Sarah Palin was spotted at the Spurs vs. Denver Nuggets game on Monday, but that's not all she did during her Texas jaunt. The 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate visited daughter Bristol and grandson Tripp in Austin, where they live. Palin and Tripp made the drive to watch the Spurs in action. In an interview with the San Antonio Express-News, the former Alaska governor raved about watching Gregg Popovich's coaching and how "fun" watching the team regroup is. In addition to witnessing the Spurs' 104-103 nail-biter win, she also posted a series of photos to prove "God blessed Texas."...

    "Good job at being racist and homophobic, American Idol." Those aren't my words, but they're the sentiments of plenty of fans after Sunday night's Disney-themed episode. After last night's votes were tallied, four of the show's minority contestants found themselves in elimination contention. Ada Vox, a drag queen, Jurnee, an openly gay and black contestant, Michelle Sussett, an immigrant from Venezuela, and Dennis Lorenzo, an African-American male, received the least votes after their performances. Jurnee was the only one to escape elimination. These four contestants were in the bottom because this is "Trump's America," according to some upset viewers.

    An excerpt from one of former President Barack Obama's previously unpublished law school papers revealed he believed the American dream was to be like Donald Trump, although he called such a goal "unfounded optimism." At age 29, Obama wrote a paper with friend Robert Fischer titled "Race and Rights Rhetoric" in his last year at Harvard Law School. An excerpt of the paper was published in a biography of Obama's early life, titled Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, Vice reported Friday. Obama had written that the average American mindset can be summed up in one sentence: "I may...

    An ancient god has resurfaced in Israel thanks to what archaeologists say is a one-of-a-kind discovery. University of Haifa researchers were digging at what's believed to be an ancient basalt armory outside Sussita—which the Jerusalem Post reports was once the Roman city of Antiochia Hippos—when a ball from a ballista, an ancient missile weapon, appeared two weeks ago. As it was made of limestone rather than basalt, archaeologists suspected it was an enemy missile and turned to a metal detector to search for a coin that might date the projectile. It found something far bigger: a 2,000-year-old bronze mask larger...

    Japan’s entertainment industry has become so filled with idol groups that some call this is the age of the “idol war.” Finding commercial success amid this fierce competition can be tough, but an idol group that debuted this week is making no secret about its true intentions. The members of the group, called the Margarines, are out for money, pure and simple. The gimmick is that they’re pursuing the idol dream in order to pay off their debts. The nine members, ranging in age from 19 to 30, owe a total of around about ¥127 million.

    To put equality ahead of liberty is to war against human nature. “There is, in fact, a manly and lawful passion for equality which excites men to wish all to be powerful and honored. This passion tends to elevate the humble to the rank of the great; but there exists also in the human heart a depraved taste for equality, which impels the weak to attempt to lower the powerful to their own level, and reduces men to prefer equality in slavery to inequality with freedom.” —Alexis de TocquevilleIn his famous admonition about the tyranny of the majority, Tocqueville went...

    Contrary to the impression that he has so assiduously worked to cultivate, Barack Obama is not a king of either the divine-right or impotent-figurehead variety, but instead the president of a republic. Having grown up in a country that still boasts the last vestiges of a once-potent monarchy, I am reasonably familiar with the role that incumbent sovereigns play in the world’s most popular constitutional arrangement, and aware too of what it takes for a modern potentate to be regarded as a success. In modern Britain, the Queen’s likeability and personality help her no end, whereas her political talent and...

    Ten black former American Idol contestants from various seasons have filed a lawsuit against the show, claiming that they were eliminated from the competition due to a racist ratings scheme, TMZ.com reports. New York attorney James H. Freeman, representing the plaintiffs, says he began investigating the show after Jermaine Jones was kicked off on March 15, 2012, because he didn't inform producers about multiple outstanding warrants for his arrest. Freeman then discovered that throughout Idol's then-11-season run, only nine other people had been publically disqualified. And as it turns out, all of them happened to be black.
