Cheat Sheet - ISIS Shows Off Executions of Gays in Graphic Photos

Read This, Skip That ....

January 16, 2015
Gay men thrown from towers. Women stoned to death. Two men crucified in public. Photos of all this and more are being published by ISIS on social media, Jacob Siegel reports, and it's the clearest look yet at the brutality of the Islamic State.
On Friday, the Twitter accounts of the New York Post and United Press International were apparently hacked and claimed a Chinese anti-ship missile had struck the USS George Washington. The Post tweeted from another account that it was hacked. The Daily Beast's Nancy Youssef was with the Pentagon's Joint Staff, who reacted sarcastically to news the U.S. was at war with China. "Oh really? We are?"

The young boy at the center of bestselling book The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven has admitted that he made the whole story up. Alex Malarkey's story of visiting angels and heaven after being injured in a car crash when he was 6 years old was billed as "a supernatural encounter that will give you new insights on heaven, angels, and hearing the voice of God," but publisher Tyndale House is now taking the book "and all ancillary products" out of print. Malarkey wrote an open letter to retailer LifeWay explaining the situation: "I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention. When I made the claims that I did, I had never read the Bible. People have profited from lies, and continue to. They should read the Bible, which is enough. The Bible is the only source of truth. Anything written by man cannot be infallible."
