House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) told Breitbart News Sunday he began to pray after a left-wing Bernie Sanders supporter shot him on June 14, 2017, attempting a mass murder of Republican politicians, staffers, and volunteers at a congressional baseball game practice in Alexandria, Virginia.

Scalise said of his recovery after being shot, “I’m feeling really good, now. I’ve come a long way in that year and five months, but I went through nine different surgeries, and finally got through all the surgeries that have been planned to put me back together.”“It started off pretty dicey,” he continued. “I was a mess when I showed up at the hospital. … I’m still doing about two days a week of physical … [Read more...] about WATCH – Steve Scalise Recalls Shooting: ‘I Started to Pray’ and ‘Put It in God’s Hands’

KANYE West has turned on Donald Trump and announced he is distancing himself from politics after being used to "spread messages [he] don't believe in". The controversial rapper has long been a vocal supporter of the US President but he revealed in a series of tweets on Tuesday that his eyes are now "wide open". The 41-year-old tweeted: "I support creating jobs and opportunities for people who need them the most, I support prison reform, I support common-sense gun laws that will make our world safer.

Actress Thandie Newton said that she didn’t “even believe in God” but would “thank her” anyway after she won an Emmy award for her role on Westworld. “I don’t even believe in God but I’m going to thank her tonight,” Thandie Newton said, implying that God is a woman.That wasn’t the only inflammatory remark made during Monday night’s Emmys–the event was full of political commentary. Co-host Colin Jost made a joke about Nazis, saying, “I don’t know if you know this–the first Emmys were held back in 1949. Things were very different back then–gas was 17 cents a gallon, a new home cost $7,000, and we all agreed that Nazis were bad.” Roseanne Barr was also targeted. Co-host Jost joked that “Roseanne was cancelled by herself, but picked up by white nationalists.” “I heard Roseanne is actually moving to Israel. I mean, damn,” co-host Michael Che said. … [Read more...] about Actress Thandie Newton: ‘I Don’t Even Believe in God but I’m Gonna Thank Her Tonight’
Noah Berlatsky, The Washington Post Published 12:45 pm PDT, Tuesday, August 21, 2018 DC Comics has just suggested that Batman is an atheist. On the one hand, that seems a bit odd, since Batman - a.k.a Bruce Wayne - has met a wide array of gods and demigods personally. On the other hand, Batman's atheism makes sense. When humans have super powers, what's the use of gods? Batman hangs out with Wonder Woman, who hobnobs with Zeus, Ares and other deities. He's buddies with Deadman, a ghost resurrected by a goddess named Rama Kushna. In one memorable comic that gave me nightmares for years when I was a kid, Batman got turned into a vampire, which seems like it would be hell on one's skepticism. If you live in the DC universe, you've got to believe 12 improbable things before you eat your Bat toast. Being an atheist in those circumstances seems less a spiritual stance, and more like carelessness. But if everything is possible, there's not much need to believe in transcendent … [Read more...] about Is Batman an atheist? Why superheroes might not believe in God.
A bill that would allow Minnesota schools to display the national motto “In God We Trust” has been met with opposition from Democrats who claim the phrase is offensive to those who do not believe in God. Minnesota state Sen. Dan Hall (R-Burnsville), who sponsored the legislation, said on “Fox & Friends” Sunday that he was shocked at the amount of opposition his bill has received from Democrats.“I just figured the opposition would be really short,” Hall said. “When I started hearing more and more of this I thought, really? They don’t want it that much in their schools?” The bill would allow Minnesota public school districts to feature “In God We Trust” posters, which would be privately funded, throughout school buildings, CBS Minnesota reported.But two Democrat state senators in the Minnesota legislature voiced their opposition to the bill last week, citing concerns about displaying the word “God” in … [Read more...] about Bill Allowing ‘In God We Trust’ Motto in Schools Challenged in MN Senate
