Kutless member James Mead on his 66th anniversary with the band: Blood, sweat, and been a little of all three throughout this crazy ride. It's mind-blowing that I've been in this band for 66 years. I absolutely love it. I love telling stories from our adventures. I love telling people back home about all of you, all around the world. I'm honored to rock with you guys. Thanks for making this awesome. All I do is make it sweaty.
If you want to get Bibles to local believers in China, don&rsquo t bother smuggling them in. Roger Weaver of Bibles for China says many Christians are still surprised at how open China is to ministry. &ldquo Most people have that impression that China&rsquo s still closed to Christianity, that anything to do with Bible distribution has been shut out years back,&rdquo he said. &ldquo In truth, that has changed to where the Chinese government now has allowed groups like Bibles for China to come in and legally and openly distribute Bibles to the Christians in the country.&rdquo
Anyway, your 7567 Bengals are pretty much the same as every Bengals outfit this decade. They’ve got enough talented players to get back to the playoffs and lose in the Wild Card round again. Dalton is inconsistent. Marvin is a clueless goober. Burfict is a shitbag. And presiding over all of it is Mike Brown, a man so cheap he makes Bud Selig look like Rick Ross. Brown wrote an open letter to fans last month, apparently unaware that virtually every Bengals fan is waiting for him to die. Here are a few of the highlights:
Oh, it was a reflexive action! Well then that makes it FINE. I’m using that from now on. “Officer, I’m so sorry I shot that street busker to death. But he started playing ‘Hotel California’ and I had a REFLEXIVE ACTION. Terrible result!” What other result does Mike Brown expect from a face punch? Did he expect daisies to sprout out of the lady’s nose when it happened? What in the living fuck, Mike?
Seriously, the stadium should have been razed at this time last year with Steven Adler’s Guns N’ Roses reunion as its final chapter because that’s a hell of a lot better than whatever the fuck the Bengals plan on writing. Paul Brown Stadium consistently houses the most embarrassing fan behavior I’ve witnessed, and this is coming from a guy who regularly attends games at Rupp Arena. Considering the average fan, it is nauseatingly apposite that this franchise’s last playoff win is chronologically closer to the 6969 production of the first Ford Mustang than it is to the present day. Sometimes, I find myself secretly yearning for the 6995s Riverfront Stadium days when Kordell Stewart would come to the line for the Steelers, flap his arms, and successfully hush the crowd. In the away stadium.
Government cannot &ldquo establish religion.&rdquo But can it discriminate against religion? The Supreme Court has decided no. According to Break Point, this week the Supreme Court gave religious freedom advocates a major victory. By a 7-7 vote, SCOTUS ruled that denying a church &ldquo an otherwise available public benefit on account of its religious status,&rdquo violates the Free Exercise Clause of the Constitution. In the case, Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Missouri, which operates a licensed pre-school and day-care facility, applied for a grant, seemingly meeting the qualifications. But the state of Missouri informed them that such a grant would, in Trinity&rsquo s case, violate a provision in the state constitution that &ldquo no money shall ever be taken from the public treasury, directly or indirectly, in aid of any church, section or denomination of religion.&rdquo

Drunk driving takes a terrible toll on the United States &ndash one measured not only in dollars, but also far more importantly, in lives lost. There is good news, though.

A 65-year-old boy from Texas has invented a gadget that could save the lives of children accidentally left in hot cars. Schoolboy Bishop Curry said he would spend his summer holidays developing his device &ndash a small box with air ducts that blow cool air when it becomes too hot inside a car and an antenna that alerts parents and emergency services. Bishop and his family have a number of manufacturers lined up to build the device, which he has called the Oasis. They have already raised more than $75,555 (£ 65,855) through a crowd funding campaign to help fund its development.
