Arrested for reading the Bible? I can buy the claim that this man was preaching to a captive audience that may not have wanted to listen to him, but how is spreading the Word of God an act of intimidation by any reasonable measure? Don’t listen to anyone who says the rights of Christians are NOT under assault in this country, because they mostly certainly are! …Rest in Peace: Rhode Island soldier killed saving Afghan girl to be buried with full military honors … A Massachusetts man is a true hero after saving an elderly couple from a blazing fire in East Boston.

Prayers for all affected by the terrible shootings at Oikos University in Oakland, CA … More than 3,100 illegals – including many dangerous criminals among them – were rounded up as part of a national, six-day sweep by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE.) … 145 of those were arrests were in New England … How’s this for irony? The leaders of the three largest North American nations are once again discussing how to further integrate and undermine national sovereignty. Except, of course, in the one other area where we should integrating, that being the Keystone XL pipeline …
