Cuss warning:

Building A Snowman In Saudi Arabia Just Got EVEN Harder - Thanks, Religion!

"A prominent Saudi Arabian cleric has whipped up controversy by issuing a religious edict forbidding the building of snowmen, describing them as anti-Islamic.

Asked on a religious website if it was permissible for fathers to build snowmen for their children after a snowstorm in the country’s north, Sheikh Mohammed Saleh al-Munajjid replied: “It is not permitted to make a statue out of snow, even by way of play and fun.”

Quoting from Muslim scholars, Munajjid argued that to build a snowman was to create an image of a human being, an action considered sinful under the kingdom’s strict interpretation of Sunni Islam."

Still watching it but knowing who's about to comment...it's safe to assume it contains some cussing:

'The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven' Author Admits He Lied

"A bestselling Christian book that claims to detail a boy's trip to heaven and his return to Earth is being pulled from stores after one of its co-authors admitted he made the whole thing up.

The 2010 memoir, "The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven," was written by Alex Malarkey and his father, Kevin Malarkey, a Christian therapist in Ohio.

In 2004, when Alex was 6, the two were badly injured in an automobile accident. Alex ended up in a coma for two months, and the book claims to tell the story of his trips to heaven during that time.

Malarkey described a heaven with a "hole in outer heaven" that goes to hell. He detailed his conversations with Jesus Christ and meetings with the devil, who at one point blamed him for the accident."

Anti-porn crusader arrested in Sutter County, charged with child sex

 A man who presents himself as an anti-pornography crusader and motivational speaker has been arrested on multiple charges involving sex with a child under 14.

<snip>

Pauling was investigated in 2010 for alleged inappropriate relationships with six other underage girls in Redding but the case was never prosecuted.

<snip>

According to Pauling's website, he was a producer of pornographic films for nine years beginning in 1997 before becoming a Christian and speaking out about porn industry and its effects on society and individuals.

During a presentation in Australia, Pauling claimed to have convinced at least 500 young women to participate in his productions.

More recently, Pauling spoke at St. Isadore Catholic Church in Yuba City in September.

Parish priest Matthew Blank said he has known Pauling for some time and has never doubted his sincerity. "What I know of him, he's a great guy," Blank said. "Let's just leave it at that."

In a 2008 ABC Nightline program, Pauling debated two porn stars and offered what now seems to be a sadly ironic statement.

"We're intelligent human beings," he said. "And when what we're doing is costing someone else and causing pain to someone else, we probably shouldn't be doing it."

Bible Story About Man Living In Whale Is True, Says Fox 'Historian'

"Minister and self-described “public advocate for the Christian faith” Dr. Tom Dickson assured Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt on Sunday that there was ample evidence for the story of Jonah living in the belly of a fish for three days and other Bible tales to convince atheists.

During a Fox & Friends segment titled “Keeping the Faith,” Earhardt pointed out that 19 percent of Americans were skeptics who did not believe that the Bible was sacred, up from 10 percent in 2011.

Dickson explained that many people were turned off by the Bible because it had been used as a “tool for oppression and slavery and violence.”

But he argued that those were “universals of human culture, you don’t need the Bible to have war, violence and slavery. They were there in Greece and Rome before the Bible.”"

Fugitive American minister caught in Brazil

Victor Arden Barnard, an American pastor wanted for 59 counts of sexual assaults in Minnesota, was arrested by Brazilian authorities on Friday, the office of the governor for the State of Rio Grande do Norte said Saturday.

The 53-year-old suspect was wanted by the Pine County, Minnesota, Sheriff's Office for allegedly sexually abusing two young girls who were members of his church, the U.S Marshals Service said.

Barnard -- who was featured on CNN's "The Hunt With John Walsh" in 2014 and again earlier this week -- was last seen in the United States in Raymond, Washington, in 2014.

In April of that year, prosecutors in Pine County, Minnesota, issued a criminal complaint that accused him of 59 felony counts of criminal sexual conduct. The manhunt began after a two-year investigation into allegations from two women about Barnard's alleged conduct while he was preaching to a religious group in Finlayson, Minnesota.

Barnard was featured on the United States Marshal's 15 Most Wanted List along with a $25,000 reward for information leading to his arrest. He was also wanted for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

State Politicians Want To Declare Idaho Officially Christian

"Members of a county Republican Party in Idaho are to take up a measure that would declare the state a Christian one to bolster what the proposal calls the "Judeo-Christian bedrock of the founding of the United States."

The resolution to be voted on by the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee is non-binding, meaning it does not have the effect of laws or rules.

The proposal seeks that Idaho be "formally and specifically declared a Christian state," guided by a Judeo-Christian faith reflected in the U.S. Declaration of Independence where all authority and power is attributed to God, the resolution reads."

Idaho Republican backs faith-healer parents: ‘If I want to let my child be with God, why is that wrong?’



An Idaho Republican said a proposed ban on faith-healing could violate the religious rights of her constituents – many of whom eschew medical care for themselves and their families.

“They have a clear understanding of what the role of government should be – (and it) isn’t how to tell me how to live my life,” said state Rep. Christy Perry (R-Nampa).

Legislation limiting a faith exemption for medical care in the state’s child neglect law was proposed after a string of preventable child deaths in Marsing among members of the Followers of Christ Church.
