Christian news around the world—and right here in the U.S.—is horrifying in some cases and ridiculous in others. Here are some of the stories I came across as I was scouting for the most important Charisma news headlines:

An attack on a Christian village in central Nigeria early Tuesday morning left 13 people dead. CNN offers more details on the report of yet more violence, which is mostly blamed on Islamist extremists. Not surprising.

You’ve heard about the Church of Hate… Well, the Arizona state legislature is planning to limit the ability of members of that infamous church, formally known as the Westboro Baptist Church, to disrupt the funerals of victims of Saturday’s deadly shooting, TPM reports. Finally.

Are military chaplains a faith mismatch for the personnel they serve? A story in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch explores the issue, relaying heavily on Department of Defense data to offer a resounding “yes.” What can we do about it?

Bible theme parks are gaining momentum—at least in some states. But the Huffington Post tells the story about how a huge replica of Noah’s Ark might have a different fate in Kentucky and Tennessee. What’s going on here?

CBN reported in December that Iraqi Christians want their own province amid the reality that Christians have suffered some of the deadliest attacks against their community since 2003. Are we in for another fight in the Middle East?

What are some of the most horrifying and ridiculous Christian news themes you’ve seen lately?
