Who gets to define what are and are not human rights? Humans or God? Herein lies the real question behind equal rights issues. Either we argue there is a God and thus there are rights that He has given, or we argue that there is no God and there are no rights unless you can exercise power.
Satan Takes Home The Award: Let’s Take It Back By Nathan Battey
Over the past few days the Grammy Awards Show has been in the spotlight due to the shock value of several performances that took place during the show.
