Sick. Atheists angry and full of hate:
Atheists are using a music video that celebrates the burning of churches and synagogues to promote an upcoming atheist-themed festival at Fort Bragg.
“Rock Beyond Belief” is scheduled to be held on the parade field at Fort Bragg in March. The event was created in part as a response to a Billy Graham Evangelistic Association event that was held last year.

The video is here, though I don’t recommend watching it. Sacrilegious and as mentioned, hate-filled.
As of January 27, Fr. Stephan Close, Antiochian Chaplain assigned to Afghanistan’s Kandahar Air Field Chapel, has written fifteen vivid letters to his Bishop, His Grace Bishop Basil of Wichita. With permission, Antiochian.org is republishing the letters as journal entries, and the regular diary essays compose a moving first-hand account of his life in a war zone.
Fr. Stephan’s colorful prose details all the sorrows and joys of a chaplain’s life. “It’s been a rough week,” he writes in Entry 14, “with too many rockets and caskets and trouble and sorrow.” Earlier, in his first encounter of the chapel at Kandahar, he explains, “I was able to serve Liturgy with the Romanians yesterday. Their chapel was one of the first constructions when they first came into theater at the beginning of the war (about 10 years now, Lord have mercy on us). It is not a prefab, but was purpose built-some of the interior supports are hewn and fitted, not nailed; a beautiful devotion of handiwork.”
Really worth reading.
