Politically active Christians are vocal about a certain selection of “social issues,” as they’re commonly called. You know, abortion, homosexuality, keeping devil music and dancing out of Bomont, and such on like that.

I’m back with a very important announcement: There’s no escape from cows!
Remember when Newsweek used to be worth a bucket of warm spit? Yeah, me neither.

Former Alabama and current San Francisco 49er running back Glen Coffee is leaving football because God has something bigger for him. What, he doesn’t know.
