'The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven' Author Says Book Is Made Up Of Lies

Posted in: , ,

“The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven,” is a best-selling Christian book by Alex Malarkey and his father, Kevin Malarkey which purports to answer the question of whether God and Heaven are real.

The book was first published in 2010, and supposedly narrates Alex's experiences while he lay in a 2-month coma after a car accident when he was 6 years old. His injuries left him paralyzed, but the book said while he was in the coma, he died and went to heaven and moved around and met and spoke with Jesus.

Now, 16-year-old Alex says everything in the book was made up. "I did not die. I did not go to Heaven," he states in an open letter to Christians everywhere who are reading the book.

Posted in: , , ,

Two Kentucky teenagers, Dalton Hayes 18, and Cheyenne Phillips 13, are suspected in a multi-state crime spree that has police desperately searching for them since they vanished nearly two weeks ago from their hometown. Hayes' mother said the girl had portrayed herself as being 19 years old, and urged the young couple - who had been dating for about three months - to turn themselves in and "face the consequences."

Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins said that after the couple disappeared Jan. 3, authorities believe they have traveled to South Carolina and Georgia. Along the way, they're suspected of stealing multiple vehicles and using stolen checks, law enforcement officials said.

Chaffins said the couple's behavior is "becoming increasingly brazen and dangerous," and he said they had evaded law enforcement twice. The sheriff said he believes Hayes is calling the shots as the teens try to stay ahead of the law.

Posted in: , , ,

Raif Badawi, who runs a blog on human rights and social change, was arrested in 2012 and sentenced to 10 years in prison as well as 1000 lashes. He has began his flogging sentence which is portioned at 50 lashes every Friday. His crime is that his blog supposedly insults religious figures and the regime in Saudi Arabia. Raif has always denied these charges.

As the 31-year-old father of three received his first 50 lashes today, his wife Ensaf Haidar, who lives almost 6,000 miles away in Quebec, says it is too much to bear.

The US Supreme Court Agrees To Rule On Gay Marriage

Posted in: , , ,

The Supreme Court agreed Friday to resolve the national debate over same-sex marriage once and for all. The justices will consider four cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, consolidated and heard together. They will hear 2 1/2 hours of oral arguments in April and issue a ruling before the current term ends in late June.

The new challenges to gay marriage bans are destined to become even more of a landmark than those decided by the court in 2013 — United States v. Windsor, which forced the federal government to recognize gay marriages, and Hollingsworth v. Perry, which made California the 13th state to allow them.

Oby Ezekwesili Slams President Jonathan For Campaign Visit to Maiduguri

Posted in: , , , ,

President Goodluck Jonathan made a surprise call at a military base in Maiduguri yesterday as a way to boost the morale of the soldiers for the Armed Forces Rememberance Day. But not everyone is empressed. On my FB where I shared the news, someone called it "campaingning and not caring."

Former minister of education and Oby Ezekwesili seems to agree, as she expressed her anger and disgust on Twitter. She also reminds the president of the promises he made and failed to the Chibok parents after the #BringBackOurGirls online activism.

Whose side are you on, all I can say is 'at least he finally visited.'

Posted in: , ,

Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston became joined at the hip by the media since Brad Pitt left his marriage with Aniston to hook up with Jolie in 2005. Brad and Angelina finally got married last year after 6 children, 3 adopted. But whether the two women are on good terms or not, they often try not to be at the same events, or be on the red carpet at the same time. The Oscars back in 2009 was the last time it happened.

It happened again yesterday at the Critics' Choice Awards event. Angelina was nominated for Best Director and Jennifer for Best Actress, so I guess there was no way to avoid this one. According to reports, both actresses arrived just minutes apart, with Jennifer arriving first and Angelina a few minutes later. Jennifer Aniston came with fiance Justin Theroux flashing her engagement ring, but Angelina walked the red carpet alone, but with her wedding ring. Pics below...

Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo Reveal Messy Breakup Over Car Gift

Posted in: , ,

Why are breakups always often messy? Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks went their separate ways a few months ago and we assumed it was mutual and amicable. But now she's talking about it, and it's not nice. Worse, Jason is spreading stuff on the internet to get back at her. How juvenile right? Though some say she started it by discussing the breakup with the media first.

Well, she was asked in an interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club yesterday, how they broke up and she revealed that he just cut her off. She said she kept calling his phone but he never picked and she didn't even know they were officially broken up when he revealed it to the press.

Is The Moon A Planet Or A Star? What is It?

Posted in: ,

An argument broke out recently between QVC host Shawn Killinger and designer Isaac Mizrahi on a segment on the home-shopping network about the moon. The two were debating whether the Moon is a planet or a star. It started when she said the clothes designs reminded her of the earth's picture from the planet moon. Then she changed her mind and said the moon is a star.

But Mizrahi, the designer was having none of that! “No, the Moon is a planet, darling.” he insisted. But it seemed someone off camera had told her she was right, and moon was not a planet so she pushed back, “Don’t look at me like that! The sun is a star!” Mizrahi said he didn't know "what the Sun is” but he was sure the moon was a planet. One of the models couldn't stop laughing, facepalming herself in shame for both of them.

So what do you think, is the moon a planet or star, or what?

Ladies! Why You Should Stop Waiting For Mr. Tall, Dark & Handsome

Posted in: , , ,

By Eniola Ake

It is no doubt that women love good men. We want it all when it comes to dating the right man for us. Yet women allow what we see on the physical to overshadow our hearts so that we forget how we want to be treated by men. Though we want the right man but we want him handsome with well shaved beard, tall, probably a bit muscular, dark or fair without considering happiness.

Happiness doesn’t lie in the physical just like beauty is skin deep. Women keep making the same mistakes when looking out for a man, we repeatedly keep looking for physical perfection in a man. But does such perfection really exist?

What Many Mums Look For In Dessert Recipes

Posted in: , , ,

Many mums would agree that menu planning could at times be as complicated as rocket science. If they could squeeze it in the monthly budget, they would gladly hire a think tank to work through the different factors to be considered (individual preferences, sensitivities, cost, etc.) and come up with a menu that will work.

Such mums are not particularly demanding. They don’t require a menu so perfect that it would inspire publications for a feature story. They just want something that will sufficiently nourish the family without garnering complaints or wastage.
