road.jpg   Praying for President Obama to fail: "I do not hesitate today in calling on godly Americans to pray that Barack Hussein Obama fail in his efforts to change our country from one anchored on self-governance and constitutional republicanism to one based on the raw and unlimited power of the central state. It would be folly to pray for his success in such an evil campaign. I want Obama to fail because his agenda is 100 percent at odds with God’s." -Joseph Farah, founder of World Net Daily.

"Joy Ladin is a poet and a professor of English at Yeshiva University’s Stern College for Women. For most of her life, though, she was known as Jay and her biological sex was the source of deepest unhappiness. A few years ago, Jay decided to start the process of becoming a woman, a move that caused additional wells of anguish as her marriage fell apart and she worried about how the world would receive her. Now out as a woman, Joy Ladin discusses her decision to transition, her relationship to God, and reactions from her Orthodox students."
