Police or Pastor? – After an incident of domestic violence, who should a woman call first, her pastor or the police?

Edge of Stability – This photographer has captured some incredible footage of storms and other bad weather.

An Ugly Mirror for America – I’m glad to see CNN dedicating some space to the ugly situation with Planned Parenthood. “The detail is up for lawyers to debate.
