"Thou shalt not commit adultery." One of the most striking aspects of the Seventh Commandment is its utter simplicity. Without equivocation or evasion, God's law is clear and self-explanatory.

Techies are calling the upcoming shift in how we will use our credit cards at the store something like "dip the chip."
It's not a bad way of explaining things. Instead of swiping our plastic, we'll be able to slide or dip our chip-equipped credit cards at chip-enabled terminals at the register. You might see the new way of doing things as soon as the next time you shop at Target or another big retailer.
Uncertainty has become the word of the hour. On Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial average went down almost 1,100 points, then rose back up to within 115 points of where it all started, before falling back down to a loss of 588 points by the end of the day. They called it "Manic Monday."

Begin to ask yourself if you would donate without a donation receipt?
Immediately following the Supreme Court decision that declared same-sex marriage legal, Time's Mark Oppenheimer openly declared that churches should be stripped of their tax-exempt statuses, arguing they served no reliable function when helping the poor and that government had no business "subsidizing" them anymore.
The closest I've ever come to glimpsing hell was on Monday, when I read an article in the New York Times headlined, "With High-Profile Help, Obama Plots Life After Presidency."
Reporters Michael D. Shear and Gardiner Harris reveal the "methodical effort taking place inside and outside the White House as the president, first lady, and a cadre of top aides map out a post-presidential infrastructure and endowment they estimate could cost as much as $1 billion," or about as much as Obama fundraised for the 2012 campaign.
