Kurt Warner Argues With Twitter Users Over Evolution

As a proud liberal who is also a charismatic/pentecostal Christian, I’ve had my fair share of moments when a prominent charismatic says or does something that makes me cringe.

Ever since video was released on Monday showing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice leveling his then-fiancee, Janay, in an Atlantic City casino elevator, the NFL has maintained that it never saw the video until TMZ released it.
