There’s an interesting Web site out there named StuffChristiansLike.net And soon there’ll be a book, too. I discovered Stuff Christians Like while researching “The Christian Side Hug.” More on that later… Stuff Christians Like is worth a visit.
Another empty apology, this time from The Collegiate Church in Manhattan. The Collegiate Church is apologizing for the misdeeds committed by long-deceased Dutch-speaking church founders.

It had to be an odd experience, especially for a conservative journalist of the Episcopal persuasion, watching his boss and humanity’s “True Parent”, ex-convict the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, marry 20-30 couples in New York City. Richard Miniter, the former editorial page editor of the Washington Times, says the event was downright creepy. But it’s […]

Sun Myung Moon made his life a living hell after he became editorial page editor of the Washington Times in March. Unification Church cronies allegedly forced him to work when he had health problems, […]
