SORT BY Relevancy
Communities Digital News offers another lively hour of conversation featuring our writers, editors and guests. This week the recent Cantor loss and Cochran win shines a light on the GOP voter dilemna.
Also, a New York Federal Appeals court asked an atheist group to "better explain" how the "Ground Zero Cross" creates anguish to non-Christians and offer evidence as to why it should not be included in the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
Finally, where are we at legally with the Immigration saga? Will this, after Obamacare, the IRS, NSA and Fast & Furious Scandals, be the President's Waterloo?
On a fateful day over a decade ago, two commercial airline flights were hijacked by terrorists and flown into the World Trade Center towers in New York City. Two days after the buildings fell on 9/11, as the dust and ash cleared and as torn and mangled bodies were pulled from the rubble, a worker at the site named Frank Silecchia discovered a peculiar object amidst the ruins.
The object was a 17-foot cross formed from two steel beams used in the construction of the World Trade Center. This cross became a symbol of hope in the days and weeks following the devastation of 9/11. It was one of the few parts of the towers that had not crumbled to bits or been incinerated and turned to ash as a result of the fiery explosions that accompanied the attacks.
As the cleanup effort continued around Ground Zero, this cross was placed on a pedestal on a plaza near the site of the attacks. Many people felt that its survival was providential, and it became a place where people prayed and left notes and messages of hope.
The Ground Zero Cross became the subject of much debate when plans for a September 11 Memorial Museum were put in motion. Several groups did not want the Christian symbol of the cross included in the memorial. However, in March 2013, a U.S. Court ruled that the Ground Zero Cross could be displayed as a part of the memorial. This week, the September 11 Memorial Museum opened in New York City, and the Ground Zero Cross is at the center of an underground gallery along with other monumental artifacts that survived the attacks.
Why is the symbol of the cross so powerful?

On tonight's episode we'll discuss today's race, a day late, from the Daytona International Speedway; the Coke Zero 283, it became because of rain.
Aric Almirola, from Richard Petty Motorsports puts the number 43 car in victory lane for the first time since 1999 with a win today in Daytona. First time a Richard Petty owned car went to the winner's circle in Daytona since 1981.
It was rained shortened. Almirola wins his first career race, and puts himself in contention for the 2014 chase for the Sprint Cup. Is he worthy? Because the race is rain shortened, does it take something away from Almirola? Does he have a shot at this championship?
We'll discuss the race. Two major accidents, one early, and one later took out about 32 cars out of contention for the win. We'll talk about what we thought about the racing, and if we thought it was exciting.
Also, we'll talk about Barney Hall, stepping down from the broadcast booth at MRN radio, as the 84 year old broadcaster goes into semi-retirement. Barney's been the voice of MRN since before anyone can remember. The guys will talk about some of the times spent with Barney Hall bringing them the race.
Also, the State of Our Sport Speech, Brian France talked to the media before the original start time of the race on Saturday evening. We'll talk about whether or not we thought it was good.

When the Ark of the Convenant is brought into the camp of the Israelite army, it says this:
1 Samuel 4:5New Living Translation (NLT)
5 When all the Israelites saw the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord coming into the camp, their shout of joy was so loud it made the ground shake!
Can you imagine if the Christian church today had that level of joy in the presence of God, how it could impact society in a huge way? What reasons do we have to feel joy in our lives?
