Beloved '80s sitcom star Kirk Cameron is once again making headlines for his controversial views on marriage, and this time he has some pointed advice for Christians.
In an interview with AL.com, Cameron said that Christians need to focus their energies on cleaning up their own acts, rather than making the fight against marriage equality their number one priority.
The New York Times did a big write-up on the latest developments on the now-scrapped Ground Zero mosque plan.

Could a series of “blood moon” events be connected to Jesus’ return? Some Christians think so.
In the wee hours of Tuesday (April 15) morning, the moon slid into Earth’s shadow, casting a reddish hue on the moon. There are about two lunar eclipses per year, according to NASA, but what’s unusual this time around is that there will be four blood moons within 18 months — astronomers call that a tetrad — and all of them occur during Jewish holidays.
A string of books have been published surrounding the event, with authors referring to a Bible passage that refers to the moon turning into blood. “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord,” Joel 2:31 says.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, host of the new “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” television re-boot, spoke out against people of faith who use their “religious text as a source of [their] science” during a radio interview Monday.
Tyson, who said that science and religion “can be compatible,” told WNYC host Brian Lehrer that he believes problems emerge when religious people start looking at the Bible and faith-based texts as the basis for their scientific views.
“If you start using your scripture, your religious text as a source of your science, that’s where you run into problems, and there is no example of someone reading their scripture and saying ‘I have a prediction about the world that no one knows yet because this gave me insight let’s go test this prediction and have that theory turn out to be correct,’” Tyson said.

Will Bill Nye deliver the ultimate science smackdown to creationists?
Ken Ham, founder of Kentucky's Creation Museum, wrote on his blog that the bow-tied television personality and staunch evolutionist would square off with him in a Feb. 4 debate.
"This debate will help highlight the fact that so many young people are dismissing the Bible because of evolution, and even many young people who had grown up in the church decided to leave the church because they saw evolution as showing the Bible could not be trusted," Ham said.
An email inquiry to Nye's assistant was not immediately returned. The museum had been hoping to attract Nye after the star said in a Youtube video that teaching creationism was bad for children.
"I say to the grown-ups, if you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that's completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that's fine, but don't make your kids do it because we need them," Nye said in the video, which has amassed nearly 6 million views.
The event, which is titled "Is Creation a Viable Model of Origins?" will be held at the Petersburg, Ky., museum's Legacy Hall. Tickets for the two-and-a-half hour debate cost $25, and will go on sale Jan. 6, according to the museum's website.
