‘Veggie Tales’ creator releases creative Bible that is for kids and adults

For decades Phil Vischer created animated stories sharing biblical stories in a creative way through “Veggie Tales” and now he’s created a Bible for kids.

“The Laugh and Learn Bible for Kids,” which came out Tuesday, has 52 five-minute stories from Genesis to Revelation.

MILLENNIALS CREATE A BIBLE FOR THE INSTAGRAM GENERATION

“After ‘Veggie Tales,’ I wanted to take kids deeper into the Bible,” Vischer told Fox News, adding he did a series but wanted to put all the research and knowledge into an actual storybook Bible to “give kids a big-picture view of the entire Bible.”

Made for kids ages 6 to 10, Vischer says it is also fun for parents, many of whom may not be familiar with the entire Bible narrative.

“The Bible has such a reputation for being daunting and boring, but it actually surprises people to say you’re going to have fun reading this with your kids,” he added.

YOUNG BOY CREDITS THIS CHRISTIAN CHILDREN’S SHOW WITH SAVING HIM FROM SUICIDE

Each story, which averages to about a five-minute read, include a family connection with questions, discussion, and prayer.

The “Veggie Tales” creator admitted he made the Bible so that parents reading along can be just as engaged, in some cases, reading the stories for the first time and not feel embarrassed or not be able to teach their youngsters.

“The whole family can learn together,” he said.

Vischer points to a generation searching for morals and identity in places like Disney films as thousands of people have actually dressed up as characters for their weddings and fiction like the Harry Potter series as quidditch teams pop up on college campuses across the nation.

One thing he wants to show is how everyone who reads the Bible can actually “find their own place in it.”

Reindeer accident hospitalizes 12 Finnish soldiers in Lapland

A dozen Finnish soldiers were hospitalized Tuesday when their armored carrier swerved to avoid a reindeer in the road and was struck by another military vehicle, officials said.

The transport vehicles carried a total of 28 members of the Kainuu Brigade at the time of the accident near Lake Kemijärvi in the province of Lapland, the Finnish military said in a news release.

None of the dozen conscripts were seriously injured, an army spokesman told the Helsinki Times.

The military said in an update Wednesday that all conscripts involved in the accident returned to their ranks to continue training.

Reindeer number in the hundreds of thousands in Finland. During the winter, the Finnish Road Safety Agency reports that up to 20 reindeer a day can be involved in traffic accidents, according to Euro News.

Vehicles have killed thousands of the roaming animals. Herders have resorted to painting the reindeer antlers in fluorescent colors to reduce their traffic deaths. Red noses were unavailable.

‘Psychic’ Florida woman who promised to lift family curse sentenced for $1.6M scheme

A woman in Florida who claimed to be a psychic fortune teller has been sentenced to over three years in prison for scamming a Texas woman out of $1.6 million to lift a made-up curse on her and her family.

Sherry Tina Uwanawich, who also goes by Jacqueline Miller, first met the unidentified victim in 2007 when she lived in Houston, federal prosecutors said in a news release Monday.

FLORIDA TEEN ACCUSED OF STEALING MORE THAN $1,400 FROM PARENTS FOR FAILED MURDER-FOR-HIRE PLOT

The 28-year-old Uwanawich became the woman’s confidante and used her trust to convince her that her family was in supernatural trouble, according to the statement.

The victim, a medical student, had been suffering from depression after her mother’s death, The New York Times reported. Uwanawich reportedly blamed her mother’s death on a witch’s curse.

Bob Nygaard, a retired New York police officer and psychic fraud private investigator, told the paper confidence crimes that exploit a victim’s fears are common across the country.

NEW JERSEY MAN ACCUSED OF POSING AS SOLDIER ON DATING WEBSITES, SCAMMING WOMEN OUT OF $2M

“Don’t look down on the victim,” he said. “Credit the con.”

The fictitious fortune teller claimed she needed “large sums of money” to buy crystal balls, candles and other items for meditation ceremonies to lift the curse, prosecutors said. The victim was led to believe that harm would come to her and her family if she didn’t pay.

The scheme continued on for years, even after Uwanawich moved to South Florida, investigators said. The scheme ended in 2014 after Uwanaich told the woman she had made up the curse.

Uwanawich previously pleaded guilty to wire fraud and was sentenced last week in Miami, over a decade after the scheme began, according to the statement. She must also pay restitution.

9/11 outrage: ‘The View’ host Whoopi Goldberg slams members of Congress who skipped moment of silence

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg called out members of Congress who skipped an event honoring victims of the 9/11 terror attacks on Wednesday.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other members of Congress observed a moment of silence earlier in the day to mark the 18th anniversary of the tragic events, but the outspoken Goldberg wasn’t satisfied with the turnout.

“Not everyone is honoring moments of silence, apparently only 26 percent of House members showed up to the moment of silence on the steps on the Capitol this morning,” Goldberg said after a conversation about public school students honoring the victims.

Co-host Meghan McCain called the lack of attendance “shameful,” but Goldberg wasn’t finished explaining why remembering 9/11 victims is crucial for all Americans.

“We don’t know why they weren’t there, but this might not have been the right day to screw around with the optics. I’m just saying, this is a moment that affected everyone in this country. Not just New Yorkers. They came for America,” Goldberg said. “They hit us here first and then went other places to take us, try to take us down. That affected many more people than just us here, and this is an American issue.”

Goldberg told House members that every one of them should have attended the moment of silence.

“Every one of you should be out there, honoring what you didn’t have to do, that they did,” Goldberg said.

Morning ceremonies were also held Wednesday at Ground Zero, the Pentagon and at the Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville, Pa.

“For every American who lived through that day, the September 11 attack is seared into our soul,” President Trump said during a ceremony at the Pentagon. “It was a day filled with shock, horror, sorrow and righteous fury.”

He added: “For the families who join us, this is your anniversary of personal and permanent loss. It’s the day that has replayed in your memory 1,000 times over: the last kiss, the last phone call, the last time hearing those precious words, ‘I love you’.”

‘Genderless’ penguin to be raised by same-sex couple at London aquarium

A baby penguin being raised by a same-sex penguin couple at an aquarium in the U.K. will be brought up without a gender — the first in aquarium history.

The young gentoo penguin, which has not yet been named, “will be the first of its kind in the history of the famous London aquarium not to be characterized as male or female,” according to Sea Life London.

LONDON ZOO HOSTS PRIDE CELEBRATION WITH RESIDENT GAY PENGUINS

Newborn penguins typically have a name that relates to its gender at birth, the aquarium said in a press release obtained by Fox News. But aquarists “decided it was more natural for the chick to grow and develop into a mature adult as genderless which is normal in the wild until they mature.”

In the meantime, the penguin has been tagged with a purple band.

It’s “completely natural for penguins to develop genderless identities as they grow into mature adults,” according to Graham McGrath, general manager of the aquarium.

“What makes us really proud at the aquarium is the success of SEA LIFE London’s Gentoo breeding program and the amazing job of same-sex penguins Rocky and Marama who took the chick under their wing and raised it as their own,” McGrath said.

Rocky and Marama made headlines earlier this year when they adopted the genderless chick. The aquarium told Insider in July the penguin couple has “an “incredibly strong bond” and adopted the egg together.

Described as “highly nurturing,” gentoo penguins have been considered “near threatened” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature since 2007.

Kristin Cavallari’s 9/11 social media tribute slammed as ‘insensitive’ and ‘tone deaf’

Fans of Kristin Cavallari aren’t happy with the reality TV star’s latest post on Instagram.

The former “Laguna Beach” cast member faced backlash for her 9/11 tribute post, which was deemed “insensitive” and “tone-deaf” because the photo features the 32-year-old posing on a New York City sidewalk in a plunging black dress.

Cavallari also tagged multiple fashion designers — including her own brand Uncommon James — in the photo, plus her makeup artist Robert Sesnek and stylist Owen Gould.

Then she originally captioned the pic, “NYC for 24hrs. And what a time to be here..always remember” but was quick to change it after all the negative comments.

Users on the social media app were quick to call out Cavallari for her lapse in judgment.

“Wrong picture for the sentiment in the post,” commented a fan.

“Poor taste,” said another.

“This is super insensitive,” wrote someone else.

“Maybe today isn’t the day to market your brand or yourself.. in NYC. #disappointed,” said a commenter.

“Let me show off my body and then make a half-ass remark about 911. WTF,” wrote another.

Cavallari was in the city doing press and attending Fashion Week.

Wednesday marks the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, which took place on September 11, 2001. Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives and another 6,000 were injured on that day.

David Webb stops vacation to respond to Jemele Hill’s call for black athletes to leave ‘white’ colleges

Westlake Legal Group David-Webb-Jemele-Hill-FOX-Getty David Webb stops vacation to respond to Jemele Hill's call for black athletes to leave 'white' colleges Yael Halon fox-news/opinion fox-news/fox-nation fox news fnc/media fnc article 0138a37f-dc7e-583d-ad36-12f3cc104a88

Fox Nation host David Webb interrupted his vacation to respond to former ESPN host Jemele Hill‘s call for black college athletes to leave predominantly white schools.

“There are those who would drag us backward for their own perverted reasons, under the umbrella of progressive segregation, and not surprisingly, wrapped in a lie of moving our nation forward,” said Webb on “Reality Check with David Webb.”

JEMELE HILL CALLS FOR BLACK COLLEGE ATHLETES TO LEAVE WHITE SCHOOLS

Hill’s recent article in The Atlantic, titled “It’s Time for Black Athletes to Leave White Colleges,” argues that black athletes should not help drive money and attention to “predominately white universities,” while historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) struggle financially.

She writes that mostly white schools’ multibillion-dollar revenues have been built on the “exertions of (uncompensated) black athletes,” claiming that an elite black athlete attending a historically black college raises awareness of the institutions, whose combined endowments are less than a tenth of Harvard’s.

Webb responded saying, “Segregation by ethnicity, predominantly for blacks, and also for other ethnic groups is just part of our history. It’s just fact. What America has done — in exceptional fashion as a nation — is overturn this and so much more to fulfill the promise in the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal.  People are imperfect, therefore the Nation is imperfect.  We move forward in order to form a more perfect union.”

Webb goes on to accuse Hill of encouraging “black athletes to choose lesser of a potential future to satisfy her progressive segregation,” adding that this is consistent with the Left’s, “regressive progressivism.”

“[Some on the Left] think blacks cannot succeed where whites exist. If so, blacks are doomed because America is a majority white nation,” said Webb, “Self-imposed segregation is economically stupid, cultural suicide and not realistic.”

Webb also took issue with one specific part of Hill’s article, where she wrote that black athletes in white universities tend to feel “isolated.” Webb said that assertion was “part of her lies.”

“I’m going to base this on some of my experience and athletes that I’ve known in colleges over the years,” responded Webb.

“When you’re an athlete in a college…you’re kind of a rock star on campus. Black, white, or otherwise, people look at you as a representative of their school. You are literally given a status above,” he explained.

US adversaries laud John Bolton’s White House departure

Both loved and hated in the foreign policy establishment, this week’s sudden ouster of John Bolton as national security adviser is likely to be embraced by America’s adversaries, analysts say.

“Nations such as North Korea, Iran and Venezuela have some short-term reasons to be happy that Bolton is gone,” Harry Kazianis, a national security expert at Washington’s Center for the National Interest, told Fox News. “Clearly, his goal was to see the eventual demise of all of these regimes, or that their economies are so weakened by sanctions that they posse little-to-no threat to U.S. interests. So, at least for the moment, some of the pressure is off.”

The Iranian regime wasted no time in addressing the news, indicating that while his removal was a “sigh of relief” it would not pave the way to direct talks between Washington and Tehran.

“As the world was breathing a sigh of relief over the ouster of #B_Team’s henchman in the White House, Pompeo & Mnuchin declared further escalation of #EconomicTerrorism against Iran,” tweeted Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who was recently personally slapped with U.S. sanctions. “Thirst for war – maximum pressure – should go with the warmonger-in-chief.”

TRUMP OUSTS NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER JOHN BOLTON, SAYS THEY ‘DISAGREED STRONGLY’ ON POLICY

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani cautioned the U.S. to first “abandon warmongers and warmongering policies,” according to the country’s Tasnim News Agency. Tehran’s state-operated IRNA news agency, quoting their envoy to the United Nations, said Wednesday that the “departure of U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton from President Donald Trump’s administration will not push Iran to reconsider talking with the U.S.”

However, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in the aftermath of Bolton’s departure, told reporters that he could foresee a meeting between Trump and the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during the United Nations General Assembly this month. Iran’s government spokesperson Ali Rabiei asserted on Twitter that Bolton was perhaps the biggest obstacle to such diplomacy, referring to him as the “biggest proponent of war & economic terrorism.”

Bolton has long taken an aggressive stance against the Islamic Republic. He was a known evangelist for regime change and intervention.

He was also viewed as an obstacle between Trump and his quest to compel North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to abandon his burgeoning nuclear weapons arsenal. After talks fell apart earlier this year, Pyongyang officials leveled the blame on Bolton and characterized him as “dim-sighted.”

Bolton’s firing – or resignation, as the departed national security advisor describes it – came after the dizzying revelation that Trump had canceled a secret meeting scheduled between himself and Taliban representatives in Camp David this week. Pompeo had been carefully crafting a peace deal with the Afghanistan-based group as a means of the U.S. exiting the 18-year war, while Bolton is reported to have firmly opposed such a diplomatic solution.

The ex-NSA’s hawkish stance and seeming appetite for military-centric approaches steadily fell out-of-fashion in the West Wing, experts observed.

“Bolton and Trump were clearly at odds when it comes to the basic formulation of defining U.S. interests,” Kazianis said. “Trump wants a more restrained foreign policy with a focus on old fashioned great power politics, and that means less of a focus on the types of regimes America will negotiate with and more of a pure focus on bettering America’s standing in the world.

“While John Bolton has vast foreign policy experience, his basic vision for America’s role in the world belongs in the history books. We must remember why so many American’s voted for Trump in the first place: to put America’s interests first above all else.”

Yet closer to home, in Venezuela, Bolton’s farewell has many in the anti-Maduro camp feeling nervous. Bolton was a chief architect of squeezing the Caracas regime earlier this year. And although his combative strategy has failed to cause Maduro to fall, he was seen by many opposition advocates as a beacon of hope.

“Maduro officials took the news of the firing of John Bolton as a victory for the regime,” Arnaldo Espinoza, the Caracas-based Managing Editor of America Digital, told Fox News. “Economic Vice President, Tareck El Aissami, tweeted that Bolton was the ‘worst liar and the person who has done the most damage to our country. The truth beat out the demons of war.’”

Espinoza said that Venezuelan political analysts are taking a cautious approach, waiting to see who will step next into Bolton’s shoes.

Furthermore, Bolton was deemed a strongman standing in the way of warmer ties between Russia and the U.S.

The news of his removal also had the Kremlin clapping.

Dmitry Novikov, the first deputy chairman of the Russian State Duma’s committee on international affairs, called the move “positive news,” the Moscow Times reported.

“Perhaps a figure will come who will advocate a more moderate policy toward Russia,” Novikov is said to have postured.

But whether this puts the United States in a stronger or more demure diplomatic standing in the world’s eyes remains to be seen.

“His removal is good news for U.S. security,” said Defense Priorities Policy Director, Benjamin Friedman, in a statement. “President Trump has said he wants to end long-running U.S. conflicts abroad, negotiate an end to the nuclear crisis in Iran and North Korea, improve relations with other great powers, and ensure our allies contribute far more to their own defense. The incoming National Security Advisor should be someone who supports these positions and is committed to implementing – rather than thwarting – them.”

Trump is expected to announce the new NSA next week. The position does not require Senate confirmation.

But even with Bolton out, others say the White House is not likely to follow the same line.

“They (U.S adversaries) won’t be happy once they figure out it is Trump’s foreign policy, and Trump isn’t going to sign up for a bad deal. Don’t expect much change,” said James Carafano, an expert in national security and foreign policy challenges at The Heritage Foundation. “We should expect continued tough stances against Russia, China, Venezuela, and Iran going forward. Trump’s foreign policy is ‘America First.’ While his style is unconventional, his actual policies are not.”
