Mother Jones reports that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has no comment on Rush Limbaugh's red-baiting of Pope Francis.

Addicting Info reports that The Satanic Temple wants to erect a monument honoring Satan on the grounds of the Oklahoma state capitol -- right next to the one honoring the 10 Commandments.  

Eyes Right has a backgrounder on the recent murder conviction of parents following the methods of No Greater Joy Ministries founded by Michael and Debi Pearl.

Associated Baptist Press reports that the trustees of Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon Georgia have picked fake ex-Muslim terrorist Ergun Caner as president.  ABP's Bob Allen writes:  

Controversy arose in 2010, when bloggers questioned written descriptions of Caner's academic credentials and apparent embellishments in recorded versions of his "Jihad to Jesus" testimony popular with evangelical audiences in the aftermath of 9/11.

"Jesus strapped a cross on his back so I wouldn't have to strap a bomb on mine," Caner said in a sermon at the Southern Baptist Convention pastors' conference in 2004. He preached in high-profile pulpits including First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Fla., and Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, claiming he came to America to do what the 9/11 terrorists did before being saved from a martyr's death by accepting Christ.




Display:
Evidently Brewton-Parker's trustees think it's OK for Mr. Caner to lie for the Lord. Never mind the Ten Commandments that they profess to follow.
