Did you catch the Planned Parenthood website “hack”?

The New York Times is listening to Christians in the Middle East – are you?

We as Christians often bemoan the reporting of “liberal media” which seems to so often get stories about Christianity wrong, if they report them at all.

The closest thing to the patron saint of Shark Week
