I wonder if they praised God for His blessings.
LISBON, Portugal -- Portuguese authorities said Tuesday that at least 12 people were killed when they were crushed by a falling tree on the island of Madeira.
Government official Pedro Ramos said 52 others were injured in the accident near the island capital of Funchal.
The tree fell while a large crowd was gathered as part of a traditional religious festival. The Nossa Senhora do Monte festival is the island's biggest annual festivity.

There are reasons that samples from the natural resource are restricted from collection, chief amongst them is that we don't want every nut job to strip this national treasure of them.
As an update to this story first reported in May, the National Park Service is allowing creationist Dr. Andrew Snelling to conduct his work.

This is not a religious order, like perhaps how nuns are married to the Catholic church. No, this was quite different. Three women married Jesus last Saturday in the Archdiocese of Detroit.
Truth is stranger than fiction.

Thanks to the popularity of an indie horror movie called The Witch, the Satanic Temple (which exists only to challenge the norms and expectations of mainstream organized religion) and the film's producers have embarked upon a 4-city tour dubbed The Sabbat Cycle consisting of a screening of the movie followed by satanic rituals. It is their intent to start a "satanic revolution" and raise awareness of the increasingly blurred line between church and state.

Megachurch evangelist pastor and notorious conman Joel Osteen has been bilking his congregation out of millions of dollars for decades. He has absolutely no shame when it comes to pretending to be a holy man for money.
If you are ashamed to have to read him in your Twitter feed, you can use this bot to automatically make the substitution.

A Vatican Academy member has claimed that the Pope's stance on population control is to not have more children than the family can sustain, but does not endorse any artificial birth-control methods... which leaves the money shot as pretty much your only option.

"There are those who say 'I am very Catholic, I always go to Mass, I belong to this and that association'," the head of the 1.2 billion-member Roman Catholic Church said, according to a Vatican Radio transcript. "There are many Catholics who are like this and they cause scandal," he said. "How many times have we all heard people say 'if that person is a Catholic, it is better to be an atheist'."

81-year-old Christine Nagel is a Canadian strongly opposed to the new law that allows people, in certain conditions, to opt for doctor-assisted suicide, because her Christian faith forbids it.
But something tells me she's never actually opened her Bible...

Ken Ham is serious in his exhibits. For his big boat museum, he only got $18 million from the state of Kentucky. What is his next act?

There are exceptions (California for example), as this isn't exactly scientific, but for the most part these two studies display an inverse relationship.
Compare for yourself.

If you choose to believe in the biblical story of Noah and his righteous family, I am not telling you not to. However there are such stories of The Great Flood from nearly every culture around the world. Most include a forewarning and building a big boat to house all the animals of the Earth. Mark Isaak composed this list at the turn of The 21st Century and it's still online for all to read. The references and documentation are pretty flawless.
