When Fox News Competes Against the Pastor in the COVID-19 Era. Also When the Coronavirus Epidemic is Over What Will the Death Toll Be for White Evangelicals Who Consume Fox?

There was an article in the Washington Post recently that described how a pastor competed against Fox News and the “conservative” media which claimed the coronavirus is a hoax.

Canadian Country Singer Tenille Townes Song Expressing Doubt of God is Inspired by Suffering and Loss

Tenille Townes released a rare and raw song in country music that deals with doubt. What led to the song was a tragic car accident of a mini van in New Brunswick, Canada that killed a life just starting. The song focuses on the why and of always asking questions. To an era of uncertainty by instability, school shootings, terrorist attacks and more it hits a nerve with many. Doubt is one of the most healthy of human emotions when it comes to faith. If you haven’t doubted my question is have you lived?  Continue reading
