From the Publisher

I was born to staunch Catholic Christian parents. Even from my youngest days, my father sometimes took me along with him when he went to preach, it was quite obvious that he wanted me to succeed him in his profession. By the time I reached grade twelve, I could preach the Gospels in my own way. In college, I often met my Protestant classmates and discussed the differences in our faiths and the performance of rituals.
By the time I completed the first year in college, I was sufficiently grounded in the knowledge of the Christian Faith as held by the Catholic Church. I was given a scholarship from the Church funds and in return for the help I received, I was required to receive special coaching in understanding parts of the Holy Book, under the Chief Priest of the Church who loved to teach me very much and was very intimately attached to me.

    Bernie Sanders's Religious Test for Christians in Public Office

    Updated on June 8 at 11:40 a.m. Article VI of the U.S. Constitution states that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” On Wednesday, Senator Bernie Sanders flirted with the boundaries of this rule during a confirmation hearing for Russell Vought, President Trump’s nominee for deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget. Sanders took issue with a piece Vought wrote in January 2016 about a fight at the nominee’s alma mater, Wheaton College. The Christian school had fired a political-science professor, Laryc

    Christians Celebrate Pentecost, Inclusivity — With An Extra Sparkle

    As churches around the world celebrated the Christian holy day of Pentecost last Sunday, at a handful of parishes across the U.S., the service had a little more sparkle than normal. Through an initiative called Glitter + Fire, congregations wishing to make a queer-positive statement were encouraged to add glitter to their celebration as a visual representation of the LGBTQ-affirming nature of their congregation. The Bible verses associated with Pentecost, which is commonly seen as the day that Christianity as a movement was born, speak of “tongues of fire” descending upon the disciples of Jesu
