Wake The Church | If you are like me, you have wondered for many years how good is the nutritional quality of the food we in America consume.  For the vast majority of human history people produced both animal and plant based food on land close to them or caught fish out of water near them.  They used farming and animal husbandry methods that were essentially organic.  They produced the food themselves and they realized their very lives depended on good stewardship.

Rolling Stone | It's just past 9 a.m. when Alex Jones pulls his Dodge Charger into a desolate parking lot in Austin. From the outside, the squat, single-story office complex that Jones calls his "command center" resembles a moon base surrounded by fields of dying grass. But inside, blinking banks of high-tech recording gear fill the studio where he broadcasts The Alex Jones Show, a daily talk show that airs on 63 stations nationwide. Jones draws a bigger audience online than Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck combined — and his conspiracy-laced rants make the two hosts sound like tea-sipping NPR hosts on Zoloft.

Food for Thinkers | The gang at Christians United for Israel (CUFI) has its undies in a bunch about Ron Paul’s amendment to the fiscal 2011 funding bill that would end aid to Israel.
