Georgia Is One Signature Away from a Ten Commandments Monument in the State Capitol Building

Earlier this week, the Georgia state House passed a bill on a 138-37 vote that would install a Ten Commandments monument on or around the state Capitol grounds… much like they did in Oklahoma:

I Also Lost My Son, but I’m Glad the Roadside Cross in Lake Elsinore Was Finally Taken Down

This is a guest post written by Nikki Moungo. Nikki is a self-employed, work-at-home mother to three inspiring children.

As a bereaved mother, my heart goes out to Ann Marie Devaney and what she is experiencing since the death of her son. A word exists to describe the loss of a spouse: Widow. There is no word to describe the loss of a child, because no words can begin to convey the sheer gravity of what we parents experience. It’s an all-consuming loss, and that’s an understatement.

I laid my head on his chest and listened to his healthy heart continue to beat for nearly fifteen minutes after life support was removed. Each beat brought with it a ray of hope… but then his heartbeats slowed, until the monitor flat-lined with it’s macabre long beep.

After Former Students Say They Were Sexually Assaulted on Campus, Christian College Accuses Them (!) of Harassment

Pensacola Christian College, one of the most conservative Christian campuses in the country, has a problem. (In addition to all of their other problems, I mean.)

Like other fundamentalist institutions, they’re brushing off reports of sexual assault on their campus basically saying those things didn’t happen, have never happened, and never would happen.

In this case, the story begins at Fred Clark‘s site with a guest post by Samantha Field, a former Pensacola Christian College student who suffered through her own assaults and now tells the stories of two of her peers:

When Will He Finally Have Enough Angels?

The Onion News Network explains that the leading cause of death in the U.S. is… “God Needing Another Angel.” And that’s not the only reason our loved ones are taken away from us:
