    The skies were ominously dark as the heavens opened. It was a downpour over the island of Nassau, in the Bahamas, just hours after the Nov. 9 plane-crash death of Myles Munroe, his wife and seven others. As far as anyone in Nassau was concerned, it was the only appropriate weather. Munroe was the senior pastor of the Bahamas Faith Ministries International Fellowship; he died on his way to a Christian leadership conference that he was headlining. When I arrived on Nassau only hours after the crash that tragically ended his life, the island was replete with shock, anguish and...

    Wonder Woman is home from the war on women, a "war" fought mostly in the fantasies of embattled Democrats, and she sounds like a Republican who looks a lot like Joni Ernst of Iowa. Or Elise Stefanik of New York, who at 30 will be the youngest woman to serve in Congress, or Mia Love of Utah, 38, daughter of Haitian immigrants, the first black Republican woman in Congress. These are women with neither lamentations nor unresolved grievances. The only whine anyone heard on the morning after the elections was the growl of Mrs. Ernst's Harley. Despite the tedious rhetoric...
  • Mia Love, the Obama of the Republican Party?

    Even her name is media friendly. Mia Love instantly became the darling of the Republican Party on Wednesday, after being elected as its first black female member of Congress -- and a Mormon to boot. And she has also rapidly drawn comparisons with Barack Obama, not least since she wowed her party's 2012 national convention with a tale of rags-to-political riches, much like the young Senator Obama did in 2004. "Many of the naysayers out there said that Utah would never elect, a black Republican LDS woman to Congress," she said at her victory rally, referring to the Church of...

    The Washington Post ^ | Moyer | Justin
    For at least half a century, the party of Lincoln has battled charges that it is racist, sexist and anti-immigrant. Today, voters from a conservative state made those arguments a little bit harder to make. In Utah, Mia Love became the first black Republican woman — and first Haitian American — elected to Congress. For the GOP — a house divided that faces significant demographic hurdles to winning the White House in 2016 even as it celebrates President Obama’s shellacking — this was huge. A party threatened with extinction among African Americans and immigrants now has someone to brag about...

    Now the nation can truly begin a healing process. It is time for the people to begin to come together again. We do not hate minorities or illegals. We only want them to follow the rule of law. We do care about the well-being of people...just work hard and earn it like many of us have instead of expecting a handout. Being a minority or an illegal alien does NOT give you a right to run rough shod over everyone else. On the other hand, true discrimination and racism will not be tolerated either. We began as a nation of...

The actress tweeted on Monday that she was no longer going to attend events in Belgium and Germany. "To my Belgian readers, so very sorry to miss the Antwerp Book Fair today but I can't wait to come back and eat fries with you. Much love," she wrote.

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 10-29-14 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    On the Balance of Love and Correction, According to St. GregoryBy: Msgr. Charles PopeApplying salutary  discipline and balancing it with necessary consolation and encouragement is never an easy task. It is possible that parents can be too severe on their children, such that they become disheartened and lack necessary self-esteem. But it is also possible that parents can be too lax, such that their children become spoiled and lack proper self-discipline and humility. Hence Scripture, seeking to balance teaching with encouragement, says, Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord (Eph 6:4).Pastors, too, in...

    Public Enemy No. 1 for rural Utah sheriffs just happens to be a fellow peace officer: Dan Love, the Bureau of Land Management’s special agent in charge. Elected law enforcement officers from Nephi to Blanding call him an arrogant and dishonest bully who has little regard for local authority and dodges accountability, derailing a collaborative approach to police work on the state’s federal lands. Love reportedly just laughed when Garfield County Sheriff James "Danny" Perkins relayed ranchers’ complaints about federal officers removing plastic feed tubs from the range and threatening the ranchers with litter citations. He drew early controversy during...

There I stood in the lobby of our church in 2008 with one of the members looking for insider information. “Which church are you talking about?” I responded, genuinely confused.“The one you prayed for this morning during worship,” she said.Then it clicked.

    According to the State of California, JahiMcMath has been dead since December 9, 2013, when she went into cardiac arrest after catastrophic side effects from throat surgery. Oakland Children’s Hospital doctors insisted she was brain dead, that is, she had experienced total brain failure. Under California law, brain death is dead. When the doctors stated their intention to remove the life support from Jahi, her mother sued. A brouhaha ensued. A judge appointed an independent physician from Stanford to examine the girl, and he too found she was dead. The judge declared her dead and the state of California issued...

    Poor and middle-income Americans are reaching deeper into their pockets when donating to charity, while the nation’s wealthiest are giving less, according to a report by Chronicle of Philanthropy that analyzed taxpayers’ IRS data. On average, Americans give about 3 percent of their income to charity each year, according to the report released Monday. But the giving gap between the rich and poor is significant, especially in view of the widening income gap. The report shows those who earned $200,000 or more donated 4.6 percent less of their income between 2006 and 2012; those who earned less than $100,000 gave...

    Earlier this month, TLC brought back "Sister Wives," a reality show featuring the Utah-based polygamist Brown family of four wives and 17 children, for another season. Since last season, the Browns struck down a major piece of state legislation that may pave the way for the legalization of polygamy under the guise of “religious freedom.” In a nod to anti-gay marriage advocates who warned the legalization of same-sex marriage would lead to other kinds of sexual freedoms, such as polygamy, the ruling is deemed a watershed moment for the rights of polygamist families— of which there is estimated to be...

Clearly intoxicated by the World Cup spirit, the reveling fans said "Israel is good," and "we love Israel." Video The Iranians may face trouble at home, as Iranian authorities do not like it when citizens stray from the government's official policies in public. However, many are likely Iranian expats living abroad. Six Iranians were recently arrested for making a tribute video to Pharrell Williams' hit song "Happy," in which unveiled women danced with men, have since been released....

    FOUR TYPES OF LOVE There is much confusion today on the subject of love because we are limited to only one English word (love) with a broad range of meanings. For example, if I said, "I love my wife, I love my dog, I love apple pie," obviously I am not talking about love in the same degree or definition. In the New Testament period there were four major Greek words that were used. Eros Love - A word that was not actually used in the New Testament but was alluded to. It meant physical passion; its gratification and...

I was bailing out the water.” The restaurant’s employees seemed well-acquainted with Love. He made small talk with them about his golf game. Occasionally, he let out a loud, delightful laugh in the warm, spring air. Getting luckier by the...

Elizabeth Joice was first diagnosed with a malignant tumor in 2010, though she was declared cancer-free after undergoing surgery and four rounds of chemotherapy. After clearing that barrier, she and her husband, Max, wanted to start a family, but doctors told her it would be virtually impossible to conceive. But Joice was a fighter. Defying the odds yet again, she and her husband announced that they were pregnant in the summer of 2013,...

The meeting, organized by the Pontifical Council for the Family, drew a far larger audience than Vatican officials had expected. Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, whose office arranged the day’s events, conceded that “numbers are not everything,” but was clearly happy with the attendance of so many young couples, telling L’Osservatore Romano that “their enthusiasm says a lot.” The day’s events began with a series...

    What do you expect from your relationship to Jesus Christ? I have come to discover that many do not expect all that much. In effect they hope that faith can kind of help them “muddle through” life and offer them a few consolations that, perhaps things will be better some day, and in heaven. Others see the moral life described in the scriptures more as a duty than a description of the person being transformed by Jesus Christ. And because they see it as a list of duties,  rather than the result of grace, they tend to resent it, consider...

    In his great treatise on the Theological Virtue of Love, St. Paul sets forth a kind of symphony in three movements. In yesterday’s post we saw the first movement, wherein he teaches on the primacy and prerequisite of love to inform other virtues, lest they lack either a proper balance or proper object. Indeed, without love many of our excellencies, good though they are can become detached, disordered, and even dangerous.Today is set forth the second movement wherein St. Paul and the Holy Spirit describe love in a litany-like manner. The litany is both memorable and vivid.MOVEMENT II. The PORTRAIT...

    In the great treatise on Love of 1 Corinthians 13, St. Paul sets forth a symphony of sorts in three movements, wherein he describes the Theological Virtue of Love. Over the past two days we looked at the first two movements:Movement I – The PRIMACY and PREREQUISITE of LoveMovement II – The PORTRAIT and POWER of Love today we conclude withMovement III – The PERFECTION and PERMANENCE of LoveThe text says,Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. For we know partially...

    IN DREAMS In dreams my hair is long againMy legs and arms are strong againI can hear the music 'round aboutAnd hear the children laugh and shoutI can play and make that Flyer goAnd make angels in new fallen snowOn the steps outside, stop on each rungCatch frosty snowflakes on my tongueSwing the baby 'round and 'roundUntil we both fall dizzy on the groundGiggling and shivering but never coldThe child in me never growing oldBut it's love, always love, that warms the soulStill strong though I'm no longer wholeWhen the sun so rudely awakens meAnd when my dream has...

    The seven year tribulation - which will engulf the world shortly - will absolutely manifest the EXPONENTIAL godlessness, lawlessness and violence of mankind as they heap upon themselves the EXPONENTIAL consequences of their rebellious designs against Almighty God and His moral absolutes for this world (Rom. 1:18-32, Rev. 6-16). The demonic wrath and oppression, the wrath of lawless men, and the ETERNAL Wrath of Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS indignation will be manifested to it's zenith and one attribute that will be completely missing during this seven year period will be the outworking of the love of God among mankind. "Then shall...
