Innocent blood is crying from the ground of North Korea. While I'm pleased that the U.N. is urging the international community to get tough on the North Korean regime for destroying the lives of its twenty-five million people, there's a worldview irony peeking out from the pages of its recent report.
As I lead a church and Christian daycare with multiple employees, I am looking carefully at the health benefits we should provide, including the impact of Obamacare.

Mr. Matthew McConaughey was awarded the Best Actor in a Leading Role Oscar Sunday night for his performance in the AIDS-themed movie Dallas Buyer's Club.

One talk show changed up a viral video about people helping a freezing boy by replacing him with a man in his 40s. See how people react differently.
Secular humanists like to sneer at religious folk for our stubborn insistence upon seeing God's hand at work in the world.
