, 'Star Wars' Chosen As Religion In Czech Republic On New Census
The Jedi Temple may have been destroyed in the Great Jedi Purge, but that hasn't deterred some people from worshipping The Force. According to CzechPosition.com, the results of the Czech Republic's new census that were unveiled this month reveal that 15,070 citizens of the country listed their religion as Knights of the Jedi. While that may pale in comparison to the 1.08 million people who self-identified as Catholics and over four million who declined to list their faith, it's still a sizable portion of people who believe -- or jokingly claim to, in reaction to an intrusive census..

New Southern Baptist Curriculum Bashes Gays
As a Southern Baptist child I was taught that homosexuality was wrong. That lesson did not come from fiery anti-gay sermons from the pulpit. No one ever quoted any scriptures to prove it, and it was never, ever mentioned in Sunday School lessons. Instead, it just seemed to be common knowledge. Oh, for the good old days when the gays weren't so uppity and open. Today, teenagers in many Southern Baptist churches are hearing about homosexuality through a curriculum called "Known."

"It would be truer to say that the Quran is for Muslims what Christ is for Christians.".."So the Quran has been burned and the Christ has been crucified - and continues to be crucified," Piper wrote.

To be relevant in a hurting world, we must embark on the pilgrimage that Christ invites us to make. The author suggests four ministries of service.
Christ's Suffering and Sacrifice: A Basis for the Ministry of Forgiveness and Reconciliation. By Celestin Musekura. Forgiveness and reconciliation that inspire hope in divided and fragmented communities is inspired and empowered by the suffering and sacrifice of Christ. The Worse of Two Worlds: For the Sake of Those Who Have Never Heard By Ferdinand Nweke. Instead of quibbling over the immutable truth of God's word, we must do whatever it takes to carry the saving message of Jesus Christ to those who have never heard, so that those in poverty will not have the worst of two worlds...

One can read into the Bible almost any interpretation of morality, Mr. Gomes liked to say after coming out, for its passages had been used to defend slavery and the liberation of slaves, to support racism, anti-Semitism and patriotism, to enshrine a dominance of men over women, and to condemn homosexuality as immoral. He was a thundering black Baptist preacher and for much of his life a conservative Republican celebrity who wrote books about the Pilgrims, published volumes of sermons and presided at weddings and funerals of the rich and famous. He gave the benediction at President Ronald Reagan's second inauguration.. Læs mere - [New York Times]

After years of defeats, advocates for ordaining non-celibate gays and lesbians are making their most successful campaign yet in the Louisville-based Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

"And then, during a Coptic Orthodox Mass in Tahrir, the Muslims protected the Coptic Orthodox. This is, I would say, unprecedented.
