White House Wants Mega Church To Give Back $300,000 of funds from Ponzi Scheme
It was years ago, when David McQueen first donated $300,000 to a Michigan mega church who is now a convicted and jailed Ponzi scheme runner. Even though the ministry, Resurrection Life Church was unaware, the government is still asking the ministry to voluntarily give back those big bucks.

Andrew Caldwell Now Says He Doesn’t Feel Delivered and Still Struggles
Well, we really do sympathize with Andrew Caldwell because it is true: For most people, they can not be instantly delivered. There are some who have been but it truly can take years to be delivered. A homosexual can abstain from the activity with the same sex, move away, change their phone number and dissociate with anything about the gay lifestyle, and still find themselves having desires. The only way to be delivered is constantly “killing the flesh” and rebuking the desires without acting on them. Ultimately the person will be freed from it and be able to move on.
Are San Francisco’s Catholic Schools Being Controlled by Lawmakers?, Report Says
Read story from CBS News from San Francisco
San Franciscans are currently debating a simple question: Should the government respect the right of Catholic schools to be authentically Catholic?

But eight California senators and assemblymen sent the archbishop a letter last month, saying that his actions in issuing new faculty guidelines “foment a discriminatory environment in the communities we serve.” On Feb. 23, two of the signers even asked the California Assembly Labor and Employment Committee and the Assembly Judiciary Committee to investigate the archdiocese’s actions.

How Gay Gospel Artists Left a Tainted Legacy- From Holy to Not At All [Part Three]
This is Part 3 which we will explore a gay gospel artist and minister and his part in starting a gay revolution in the black church by pure disobedience.
This is presumably the last part of our series: How Gay Gospel Artists Left a Tainted Legacy For Today’s Generation. We do not plan to add to this series as we feel this may complete the subject… for now. We will discuss a very important issue about how gay gospel artists emerged. We will specifically focus on one corner of the country that made a huge impact on gospel music and the gay culture in the church.
