North Coast Church's 20Something group had its Christmas party on Sunday night. Happiness is dancing with a beautiful woman....or 12.
Franklin Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham has gotten a lot of flak over his remarks about Islam, and he addresses them in a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece here. The persecution or elimination of non-Muslims has been a cornerstone of Islamic conquests and rule for centuries. The Koran provides ample evidence that Islam […]
