Question of the Week. What is the Opposition to Trump?
Well, it seems that there was an interview between Franklin Graham, and Eric Metaxas during which it was questioned if opposition to Donald Trump is demonic…
During his November 21 interview with Graham, Metaxas, a Salem Radio Network talk-show host, asked the son of the late evangelist Billy Graham, “What do you think of what is happening now? I mean, it’s a very bizarre situation to be living in a country where some people seem to exist to undermine the president of the United States. It’s just a bizarre time for most Americans.”

A Mexican church claims it has “accidentally” erected the largest baby Jesus statue in the world. Also an accident: the statue’s uncanny resemblance to British singer Phil Collins.
The nearly 22-foot-tall, 2,000-pound giant traveled 12 hours from the city of Chimalhuacán, where it was built for the La EpifanÍa del Señor church in the central Mexican state of Zacatecas, where it now resides.
The Rev. Humberto Rodriguez tells Central European News he only meant to commission a statue that would “fit the church,” but in so doing, he may have created the biggest Jesus/Phil lookalike on the planet.
