Sen. Sessions to HHS: Tax payer funded purchases of recreational pot must be stopped
Having recently returned from Colorado, I am alarmed to find out that there have been numerous reports that have recently surfaced saying that TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) benefits are being used to purchase recreational marijuana in that state. In January there were over 30 retail pot shops that applied for business licenses in suburbs around the city of Denver. After visiting the neighborhoods of about a half dozen of these stores, I had the opportunity of viewing the wide range of customers who were frequenting these establishments.

After viewing the film Noah, pastor calls for boycott
A San Diego pastor is calling for a boycott of Hollywood films after recently viewing the film, Noah. He saw the film when it was released last month. Pastor Adlai Mack of the Christian United in the Word of God Church in San Diego, CA, reported that the film begins by “pretending to give an overview of the Biblical account of the book of Genesis, working its way to the 6th Chapter.” According to Mack, the film portrays Noah in an unbiblical, inaccurate and satirical fashion. Noah is shown as a warrior, not as a preacher, says Mack. Noah even threatens family members with fights and death threats.
