    Jeremy Lin's rise to fame has received the attention of many Chinese Christians, and inspires those who face religious persecution in their Communist homeland. Jeremy Lin is not Chinese – his family identifies themselves as Taiwanese – yet he has captured the heart of many people in mainland China, including Christians who are often times persecuted. The Chinese government attempts to control religious practices in China, requiring churches to register and overseeing religious education. It also approves of less than 25 Protestant seminaries and Bible schools with less than 10 full-time employees. Even the Christianity of China's latest hero is...

    Jeremy Lin proves to have cross-party appeal as former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin flaunted her jersey supporting the famous pointguard. The Tea Party darling's shout out comes the day after President Obama's press secretary said that the commander-in-chief is also a fan. 'I've got some Linsanity!' Palin said as she was leaving a Manhattan hotel Thursday.

    Q: That’s a terrible thing when you lose your joy, isn’t it? A: Absolutely. I think now that I remind myself I’m playing for God. It frees me of all the other pressures that I was dealing with. ................................................... Q: Do you have a girlfriend? A: No. Q: Describe your ideal mate. A: First she would really love God and be a faithful Christian, and then after that, I think, a desire to serve other people, to help with the underprivileged, do a lot of social work . . . great personality and easy to be around.

    A little more than a week ago, Jeremy Lin, then a third-string point guard for the NBA’s New York Knicks, found himself suddenly in the limelight after leading his team to a surprise victory over the New Jersey Nets. Before coach Mike D’Antoni put Lin in the game out of desperation, few Knicks fans, let alone anyone else, had ever heard of the Harvard grad already cut from two other NBA teams. But now, as he leads the Knicks on a seven-game-and-counting winning streak, everyone’s talking about Lin, his underdog story, and his faith. Sports commentators call him the “Taiwanese...

    So what is Jeremy Lin thinking about following his sudden rise to stardom and the Lin-mania that's gripping the country? "I'm thinking about how I can trust God more," the 23-year-old New York Knicks guard told San Jose Mercury News. "How can I surrender more? How can I bring Him more glory?"

    America can’t get enough of Jeremy Lin — nor can anyone else. Less than a week after leading the Knicks to a five-game winning streak, Taiwanese-American point guard is the most searched item on Baidu, a leading Chinese search engine, and he already has a quarter million followers on Weibo, a Twitter-like microblog. Everybody, it seems, is talking about the Harvard-educated wunderkind. In Asia at least, most comments seem pleased to see a high-profile Chinese-American in sports. Wang Lee-hom, a Taiwanese-American celebrity with over 13 million followers on Weibo, tweeted in Chinese Tuesday: “Perhaps you all guessed what today’s Weibo...

    "Linsanity" has descended on the White House. White House spokesman Jay Carney says President Barack Obama is tracking the exploits of Jeremy Lin, the sudden star of the New York Knicks. The point guard from Harvard has come out of nowhere to lead the team on a winning streak and he's captured widespread public attention. Carney says Lin's game-winning 3-pointer at the end of Tuesday night's game against Toronto was the subject of conversation with the president aboard Marine One on Wednesday morning.

    Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. believes that New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin is getting national attention because of his race, rather than his exceptional play. "Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise," Mayweather wrote on his Twitter account on Monday afternoon. "Its OK for ESPN to give their opinion but I say something and everyone questions Floyd Mayweather," the boxer tweeted. "I'm speaking my mind on behalf of other NBA players. They are programmed to be politically correct...

    TORONTO -- Linsane! Jeremy Lin made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with less than a second to play to cap his finishing flurry of six straight points, and the New York Knicks rallied to beat the Toronto Raptors 90-87 Tuesday night, extending their winning streak to six games. The NBA's first American-Taiwanese player, Lin had 27 points and a career-high 11 assists in his first game since being named Eastern Conference player of the week. The season-high crowd of 20,092 roared as Lin drained a pull-up jumper from the top with half a second to play, giving the Knicks their first lead...

    It's not a football tale, it's a basketball one, but the sudden rise of Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin has drawn obvious comparisons to You Know Who. Dear NBA: You've found your Tim Tebow. Jeremy Lin's unlikely rise with the Knicks has been Tebowesque, and the 23-year-old point guard doesn't mind the comparisons. In this case, not a Florida icon with a bronze statue raised in his honor, but an undrafted kid out of Harvard, previously kicked to the curb by the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets, only to be picked up by the Knickerbockers just days after Christmas....

    The year 2005 is ending as it began, with another successful election in Iraq and a liberal media still flapping around trying to find other controversies to submerge it. It does not matter to them that a Gallup poll found that 74 percent of Americans express confidence in their military, but only 28 percent express confidence in their newspapers or TV news outlets. The "mainstream" media excels in excoriating the performance of nearly everyone else, but acts as if nothing they do should be held up as ineffective, inaccurate or just plain absurd. That's why the Media Research Center and...
