Unfortunately for the Duggar Family, not everyone is smitten with their lifestyle. In August a petition was launched demanding TLC take the Duggars off the air. At the moment, the document has garnered about 120,000 signatures. In response to this attack, conservative leaders are urging Duggar fans to step forward and defend the family. According to CharismaNews, support is be led by a number of conservative religious figures.
Obama makes the Defense Secretary the scapegoat for his foreign policy failures.
Chuck Hagel is out at the Department of Defense, and one administration official explained that it was because "the next couple of years will demand a different kind of focus" – apparently one that doesn't shed such a bright light upon the smoking ruin that is Barack Obama's foreign policy.
Officials released never-before-seen photos of Darren Wilson on Monday night, which appeared to show the Ferguson police officer following the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
The photos were released as part of the evidence presented to a grand jury in Ferguson. The grand jury declined to indict Wilson in Brown's death.
Nearly half of Americans now believe that the recent surge in natural disasters is the result of biblical "End Times" than climate change, and more than two-thirds of white evangelical Protestants hold this belief, according to a new study.
While only 44 percent of Americans agreed in 2011 that natural disasters are evidence of the apocalypse, their number has now increased to 49 percent, the Public Religion Research Institute reported, quoting results of a new poll.
Only a tiny fraction of the world's population (Bible believers) recognizes that Israel is here to stay. We live in momentous times, dangerous times.
That makes it all the more important that, rather than acting from fear at the current terrors in the night, we act with confidence and tell anyone we come in contact with that God's promises are sure and true.
The lynch mob egged on by radical-in-chief....
As fresh rioting was already underway in the St. Louis area, the decision also angered President Obama who could barely contain his hostility in a disgraceful, unprecedented television appearance following the release of the announcement about the non-indictments. Obama urged activists to refrain from using violence. The president himself bears direct responsibility for fomenting the combustible situation, however.

Historic negotiations with Iran will reach an inflection point on Monday, as world powers seek to clinch a comprehensive deal that will, to their satisfaction, end concerns over the nature of its vast, decade-old nuclear program.
But reflecting on the deal under discussion with The Jerusalem Post on the eve of the deadline, Israel has issued a stark, public warning to its allies with a clear argument: Current proposals guarantee the perpetuation of a crisis, backing Israel into a corner from which military force against Iran provides the only logical exit.
I see these calamities as a persistent warning from God. What has fascinated me is how often we have a record year for a given disaster, and then the following year is completely opposite. In 2011, America had the most number of tornadoes ever. One year later we set a record for the slowest season. Hurricane Sandy is noted for being the largest Atlantic hurricane on record with a price tag of $66 billion. Since it struck in October of 2012, we have had the longest quiet period for major hurricane activity in our nation's history.
The important thing about warning signs is that they don't last forever. Because Jesus said he would come for the church at an unknown hour, there is a limit to how obvious the birth pangs will become. Right now, I see everything playing out perfectly for people who know the signs and are patiently waiting for Jesus' return.
No one really expects mainstream Hollywood to go out of its way to glorify God in the films that come out of Tinseltown.
But the way Christians rolled their eyes at Russell Crowe's portrayal of Noah in the movie of the same name and with misgivings piling up over the upcoming EXODUS: Gods and Kings, you could be forgiven for wondering if filmmakers are going out of their way to stomp on the Bible.
