The St. Louis Rams have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team.

The 7th-round draft pick has been outspoken and confident as his progress was watched as closely as any rookie in the league. He has been cheered by athletes and celebrities. In the end, the defensive end couldn’t make a team stocked with pass-rushers.

The news was first reported by ESPN.

Sam still has a chance to get picked up by another team or to make the Rams’ practice squad.

She had said late Thursdaythat Rivers. 81, was “resting comfortably” after being admitted to Mount Sinai hospital in New York earlier in the day, reportedly after she stopped breathing during throat surgery.

New Mexico’s ‘pro-life’ governor taken to task for non-action -

New Mexico pro-lifers are keeping a close watch on their pro-life governor who is running for reelection.

New Mexico is likely the most wide-open state in terms of abortion, which is legal there through the ninth month of pregnancy. Tara Shaver and her husband Bud launched Protest ABQ in hopes of reducing, if not eliminating, the killing of the unborn in the Land of Enchantment.

Shaver
“What we have been doing is focusing on those who support, condone and profit from abortion here in New Mexico,” she explains. “Governor [Susana] Martinez is a self-proclaimed pro-life politician. However, her four-year term is almost up, and we have seen zero movement in terms of curbing abortion at all in this state.”

Abduction Case Tests Limits of Amish Ties to Modern World

OSWEGATCHIE, N.Y. — The two sisters were missing, apparently abducted from the roadside vegetable stand in front of their house in this rural town near the Canadian border. The police needed photos of the girls to issue an alert, but the family had none: They were Amish, a community that generally prohibits photographs partly based on the biblical injunction against likenesses.

After initially resisting, and with critical time elapsing, the girls’ father, Mose Miller, finally agreed to a compromise: He allowed a sketch artist to make an illustration of the older sister, who is 12, but not the younger one, who is 7.

“They were so uncomfortable,” Sheriff Kevin M. Wells of St. Lawrence County said, recalling the fraught negotiations last week. “We asked them to make a lot of difficult decisions.”
( Billy’s thoughts – It is sad that this group of people are having to deal with things that are part of a modern sinful world. Lets pray for them and above all we should pray they embrace to true God of the Bible. Read the rest of the above story right here. )
