A Pagan America Is Cause for Excitement

By Wade Burleson,

 "But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us" (II Corinthians 4:7).

I saw my first Catfish television show this week. My son told me about it. Very few people over thirty years of age have probably seen the show, but most people under thirty probably watch every episode. It is a documentary about people creating false on-line profiles and then engaging in on-line relationships with other people, all the while pretending to be somebody other than who they really are. The show is raunchy. The show is ridiculous. The show is revealing.

U2's Bono Discusses Faith, Helping Others

By Katherine Weber
Christian Post Reporter

Bono, the lead singer of the highly-successful Irish rock band  U2, recently sat down with Jim Daly of the nonprofit group Focus on the Family  to discuss everything from his children, to his love for his wife of 30 years,  Ali Hewson, to his knowledge of Scripture.

While speaking with Daly at the American Bible Society in New York City  recently, Bono's talk particularly focused on helping others, as seen through  his ONE campaign, which he co-founded in 2004 to fight extreme poverty and  HIV/AIDS, particularly in Africa. The  campaign seeks to use advocacy, media and policy to raise public awareness  regarding issues such as preventable diseases, including HIV/AIDS, extreme  poverty, child mortality, education, and malaria.

Bono told Daly that he has chosen to put so much time and energy into the ONE  Campaign because to him, "love is to realize the potential of others."

"The job of love is to realize potential. When you see lives squandered in  the developing world because they cannot get access to medicines that we buy or they can't vaccinate their kids for measles, then you know something's up.  The job of love is to realize that potential," Bono said.

NRB Urges 'Fix' for On-Air Indecency Rules

Manassas, VA – Today, the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) filed Comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) urging it to improve and tighten its current indecency regulations for broadcasters. After two Supreme Court decisions dealing with the FCC’s rules against over-the-air smut, with NRB filing legal briefs in both, the Commission has sought public comment on its suggestion that it should now crack down only on the most “egregious” cases of indecency.
NRB disagrees with that approach. Craig Parshall, Senior Vice President and General Counsel for NRB, wrote in the Comments that “a diminishing of the civility and decency of discourse and imagery during children’s viewing hours will diminish families, children, and our culture, and will impair the public interest.”
