Miley Cyrus burns Bible on stage to promote tolerance

Immediately following her interview, in which Miley Cyrus confessed to being "the least judgmental person in the world" and "understanding and accepting of everyone," she started her next show by setting a Bible on fire. 

In an opening act for her recent concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Cyrus walked out onto the stage and held the Bible out to the crowd saying, "Here is a tribute to all you Jesus-lovers out there." She then set the pages on fire and yelled "Hillary '16!" before dropping the book to the ground. As the music started, Cyrus began to sing while squatting over the burning Bible and performing a sexually provocative dance with repetitive thrusting hip movements, called 'twerking.'

The letter, signed by a number of Christian leaders and scholars - including the CEO of Catholic Charities and Rick Warren, famous pastor of Saddleback Church - dealt with the president's then-imminent executive order banning sexual-orientation discrimination by federal contractors.

Franklin Graham Rebukes Obama

After U.S. President Barack Obama's controversial remarks comparing radical Islam to the Christian crusades, Franklin Graham took to social media to call out America's leader: 

"Today at the National Prayer Breakfast, the President implied that what ISIS is doing is equivalent to what happened over 1,000 years ago during the Crusades and the Inquisition. Mr. President, many people in history have used the name of Jesus Christ to accomplish evil things for their own desires. But Jesus taught peace, love and forgiveness. He came to give His life for the sins of mankind, not to take life. Muhammad, on the contrary, was a warrior and killed many innocent people. True followers of Christ emulate Christ-true followers of Muhammed emulate Muhammed."

Fort Hood jihad murderer's glowing evaluations before attack may be used now to prevent him from getting death penalty

"He has a keen interest in Islamic culture and faith and has shown capacity to contribute to our psychological understanding of Islamic nationalism and how it may relate to events of national security and Army interest in the Middle East and Asia." He did indeed contribute to "our psychological understanding of Islamic nationalism and how it may relate to events of national security and Army interest in the Middle East and Asia," but not in a way that the U.S. Army is prepared to appreciate and use.
