The Bible is replaced with Fifty Shades of Grey in an English hotel. Sad. http://ning.it/PhxuEP

I didn't really know where to post this, so hope this is appropriate.  I recently started a new blog, www.GodMeetsBall.blogspot.com.  It's an attempt to connect with GUYS who follow sports, but find church a bit whimpy.  It's more for Christians than the unsaved, but I hope there'll be crossover.  I'd love some ideas and suggestions!!

Americans overwhelmingly believe in creationism or God-guided evolution. Only 15% percent believe in atheistic evolution.

Vanderbilt Says Christian Club Can’t Require Leaders to be Devout Christians

Vanderbilt University forbids Christian student clubs from requiring club leaders to be Christians. Wow. Talk about the end of Christendom. This is active hostility towards Christianity and Christians. http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/vanderbilt-tells-g...
