We Need More Attractive Christians

ShareTweetPin Last week I met a girl in a coffee shop. It’s not that uncommon for me to start conversations with complete strangers, male or female; sometimes we hit it off and become friends, other times it’s just a one-time chat. The interesting thing about this particular conversation is that, not only did we hit it off, but we kept talking for the whole week. Again, that’s not super unusual, but the interesting thing about her is, she’s not a Christian. When the subject of religion came up, she politely clarified she grew up Christian, but she is NOT one now. The more we talked, however, I began to see just why she left Christianity. The church where she grew up was quick …

Lifetimes College Admission Scandal Movie Is Its Own Scam

I never really know what people are looking for when they tune into these cable made-for-TV movies on channels like Lifetime, based on recent, salacious media stories and scandals. But that audience does seem to have an appetite for something very specific when it comes to these things, which was certainly evident by the salivating all over social media for a movie like Operation Varsity Blues news broke. Does it deliver? Well it delivers something. You could charitably rule it a SparkNotes, Readers Digest summary that captures the spirit of the events. Enough facts are changed to presumably avoid litigation, but also, then, true representation of what happened. But then again, theres nothing particularly spirited about this telling of the …

Even though there was no wall around my community, she says, there was a very effective invisible barrier. Though the Manhattan skyline beckoned from just across the river, it could have been another planet. Only when Feldman was 17 and preparing for her arranged marriage did her elders offer a euphemistic explanation of sex and its sole purpose: reproduction. Her first sexual experience with her husband was painful, unenjoyable, and resulted in her immediate pregnancy. Once I grew into my full feminine power as a woman, she explains, thats when I became completely crushed. Shortly after giving …

‘They believe we’re criminals’: black Puerto Ricans say they’re a police target

Activists say police racially profile black communities, despite Puerto Ricos image as a melting pot without racial problems When Nina Figueroa, 25, protested with fellow Puerto Ricans this summer to oust the then governor, Ricardo Rossell, she believed she stood out to police. Figueroa, a college student studying comparative literature, had been arrested multiple times while in the streets and was starting to notice a pattern. I have been arrested in protests three times and all three times I was doing nothing, says Figueroa. I asked myself: Why do the police arrest me so much? And obviously it wasnt until I understood that Im an easy target for the police because Im a black woman. Figueroa is one of many …

Five Star’s Doris on the 80s band’s highs and lows

But looking back, Doris says she only signed up for one reason: to meet Michael Jackson. “I thought, I’ll either be an air hostess so I can get to travel to America, or I’ll be in the group. Either way I’ll definitely get to meet him,” she laughs. The band were cast in the mould of the Jackson Five: a ten-legged singing-and-dancing sensation, with matching sequinned jumpsuits and a knack for pop harmonies. Like their transatlantic counterparts, their career was masterminded by their father – Buster Pearson, a former session musician who had played with Otis Redding, Jimmy Cliff and Wilson Pickett. Having seen the darker side of the industry, Buster initially resisted their entreaties to form a group “because …
