Texas pastor steps aside over messages with woman that ‘crossed a line’

Comment on this story Comment Matt Chandler, the lead pastor at the Village Church in Flower Mound, Tex., appeared to fight back tears as he told his congregation on Sunday that he was taking a leave of absence — a move prompted by what his church’s leaders saw as inappropriate messages between him and a woman who is not his wife. The leaders determined that the messages were not “romantic or sexual,” Chandler explained. “It was that our conversations were unguarded and unwise.” Chandler and church officials went into scant detail about the nature of the messages. He said both his wife and the husband of the woman he was messaging knew about their communications. But church leaders thought the messaging was too frequent, familiar and resulted in “coarse and foolish joking,” Chandler said. The pastor said the messages were called into question “several months ago” when a friend of the woman approached him and voiced her concerns. Chandler, 48, said he brought the co

Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck enjoy shopping spree on honeymoon

Maybe love does cost a thing.  Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck enjoyed a luxury shopping spree during their second honeymoon in Italy.  Paparazzi caught the “Jenny From the Block” singer, 53, and the “Argo” actor, 50, stopping by the Brunello Cucinelli store in Milan.  Lopez and Affleck also checked out duds at Valentino, where a horde of fans waited outside for a glimpse of the newlyweds.  Lopez — who wore an all-white ensemble showing off her enviable abs — waved hello to the pair’s admirers. Meanwhile, Affleck — dressed casually in jeans, a T-shirt, a button-down and black sweater —  managed to crack a slight smile at times.  Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck went for a luxe shopping spree during their Italian honeymoon.

Two plead guilty in connection to stolen diary purportedly belonging to Biden’s daughter

Comment on this story Comment correction An earlier version of this story said Project Veritas put portions of a diary purportedly belonging to Ashley Biden online. The conservative group only claimed to have the diary, excerpts of which were published by a separate right-wing website. Two Florida residents pleaded guilty in a case connected to a stolen diary that reportedly belonged to Ashley Biden, the president’s daughter, and that ended up in the hands of conservative group Project Veritas, portions of which were made public in the weeks before the end of the 2020 presidential campaign. The Justice Department announced Thursday that Aimee Harris, 40, and Robert Kurlander, 58, pleaded guilty in a federal court in Manhattan to conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property involving the theft of “personal belongings of an immediate family member of a then-former government official who was a candidate for national political office.” Nearly t

Mortgage demand from first-time buyers makes a comeback

A real estate agent shows a home to a prospective buyer in Miami. Getty Images Mortgage demand continues to weaken, still right around a 22-year low, but there was a sign in the weekly numbers that first-time buyers may be slowly returning. Mortgage applications to purchase a home fell 1% last week compared with the previous week, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association’s seasonally adjusted index. Volume was 21% lower than the same week one year ago. There was, however, a jump in demand for loans offering lower down payments. “Last week’s purchase results varied, with conventional applications declining 2% and government applications increasing 4%, which is potentially a sign of more first-time homebuyer activity,” said Joel Kan, an MBA economist. He also noted that the average purchase loan size continued to trend lower, as homebuying at the high end of the market weakens. Mortgage rates increased for all loan types last week. The average contract interest rate f

Najib Razak, Malaysia’s Former Prime Minister, Loses 1MDB Appeal and Is Sent to Prison

KUALA LUMPUR—Former Prime Minister Najib Razak was taken to prison after Malaysia’s top court dismissed his final appeal of corruption convictions, capping a yearslong quest by authorities to prosecute him for his role in one of the world’s largest financial scandals. The ruling by Malaysia’s Federal Court on Tuesday upheld Mr. Najib’s guilty verdicts on seven charges including abuse of power, money laundering and criminal breach of trust. He was convicted in 2020, sentenced to 12 years in prison and fined almost $50 million, but his punishment was stayed throughout the appeals process.

Indiana college students killed in car crash, two others seriously injured

NEW You can now listen to Fox News articles! Three students at Indiana State University were killed in a single-vehicle car crash in the early hours of Sunday morning, according to school officials.  Five people were in the car, including multiple ISU football players, when it struck a tree and went up in flames around 1:34 a.m., the Vigo County Sheriff’s Office said.  Two of the passengers survived and were transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. The driver and other two passengers were pronounced deceased at the scene.  GEORGIA HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL PLAYERS RUSH TO SAVE WOMAN IN CRASH “This is a terrible tragedy,” ISU President Dr. Deborah J. Curtis said in a statement on Sunday.  “As we are waiting on additional details from authorities investigating this accident, our hearts go out to the families and friends of the students involved.” Indiana State University’s campus is located in Terre Haute.  (Indiana State University) A women’s so

Non-Scripted Community “Devastated” By Cuts – Deadline

David Zaslav is fond of his motor racing analogies. The Warner Bros. Discovery President and CEO recently said, “If the linear business is a racecar, we’ve got a team of racecar drivers”. “When we hear a noise or it’s in third gear, we know how to fix it. It’s a business we know well,” he said on the company’s Q2 earnings call. He believes the same applies to the unscripted television business, Discovery’s bread and butter, which is one of the reasons that HBO Max’s non-scripted division, led by Jennifer O’Connell, was axed as part of the latest round of layoffs. The non-scripted community, however, is upset that he’s taken this particular car off the road. HBO Max has had success in its short time commissioning original reality series; FBoy Island , a dating show hosted by Nikki Glaser, is widely considered a hit. Although the streamer doesn’t reveal ratings, it did note last August that the show had the biggest premiere weekend for a Max original reality series, breaking out in

Trump's midterms revenge campaign takes aim at lawmaker Liz Cheney

Aug 16 (Reuters) – Donald Trump’s campaign to oust congressional Republicans who supported his impeachment gets its last major test of the U.S. midterm primary season on Tuesday, when Liz Cheney and Lisa Murkowski face challengers backed by the former president. U.S. Representative Cheney, who has played a key role in the congressional probe of the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the Capitol by Trump supporters, is expected to lose her Wyoming primary to Trump-backed Harriet Hageman, according to opinion polls. The fate of U.S. Senator Murkowski of Alaska is less clear, as the state’s nonpartisan primary format allows the top four vote-getters to advance to the Nov. 8 general election, which could bring a possible rematch of Murkowski and Trump-backed Kelly Tshibaka.

J.K. Rowling Receives Death Threats Following Salman Rushdie Attack

J.K. Rowling revealed Saturday that she has received death threats after tweeting in support of fellow author Salman Rushdie, who was stabbed and remains hospitalized with severe injuries from the attack. The Harry Potter author was among countless public figures who shared well wishes with Rushdie online — Stephen King and Hillary Clinton also tweeted their support — but after Rowling wrote of the attack, “Feeling very sick right now. Let him be ok,” a Twitter user threatened in response, “Don’t worry you are next.” Rowling first reached out to Twitter Support about the threats from the user — whose account showed tweets hailing Hadi Matar, the man arrested in the attack, as “a revolutionary Shia fighter following the fatwa” — and then told her followers that “police are involved (were already involved on other threats).” A spokeswoman for Scotland’s police told Reuters, “We have received a report of an online threat being made and officers are carrying out enquiries. . @Twi

Trump outlines preferred policies if GOP retakes Congress in CPAC speech

Former President Trump outlined steps for the GOP to take if they win back control of Congress in November during his speech Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference’s (CPAC) convention.  Trump said the midterms need to be a “national referendum” on President Biden and Democratic control of Congress, and Republicans must ensure Democrats have a “crippling” defeat. His speech at the convention in Dallas, Texas concluded its third day.  Trump pointed to candidates he backed in primaries on multiple occasions like Tudor Dixon, the Republican nominee for governor of Michigan, and Kari Lake, who won the GOP nomination for governor of Arizona.  He said GOP candidates should campaign on holding the Biden administration accountable and working to “shut down” the southern border, reduce crime and beat inflation. He said restoring “public safety” is the first job for the next Congress, and he knows the Republicans who are running are “not going to play games.”  Trump reit
