U.S. Rep. Peter H. Kostmayer vigorously attacked the honesty of his Republican opponent, David A. Christian, and Christian retorted that Kostmayer was "out to lunch" as the two Eighth Congressional District candidates met yesterday in their first debate. During the debate - scheduled for broadcast at 2:30 p.m. Saturday on WPVI- TV (Channel 6) - Kostmayer, 40, a Democrat, repeatedly questioned Christian, 37, on his past involvement with the United Vietnam Veterans' Organization, whose funding was cut off by the state in 1983.

"Lord, I want to be a Christian in my heart. " - Negro spiritual Lord, help me. I'm about to do what smart people never do - talk religion in public. I do this because of a woman in Russia and a man in Pennsylvania. More about her in a moment. As for him, he stood up from the audience during a Q&A that followed a speech I gave at a university some months back. I'm usually pretty relaxed during those sessions. I've done them enough that I'm seldom surprised by any question.

David A. Christian breezes into the Thriftway in the Levittown Shopping Center, prepared to recite his rags-to-politics life story to unwitting shoppers. "We've done this here before," says Christian, who really hasn't, to the woman behind the customer-service counter, who seems unsure whether candidates for the U.S. Congress ought to be parading among the produce. "If you're humble, you won't get permission," he explains to a reporter. "You can't wait for the system. You just have to move.

Talk about lack of respect for authority. It was 1968, and baby-faced Second Lt. David A. Christian was tired of doing a man's job in the Army and being treated like an unreliable son. Christian was just 19, but already he was leading small groups of troops into the torrid battle zones of South Vietnam on search-and-destroy missions that increasingly ended in armed conflicts with the enemy. Back at headquarters, however, the ranking officers had a difficult time believing the word of this fuzzy-chinned kid from Levittown with the shaved head.

JOS, Nigeria - Raids and reprisal attacks have left 58 people dead in Christian villages near a Nigerian city where authorities have struggled to contain religious violence, officials said Sunday. Assailants launched "sophisticated attacks" on several villages near Jos early Saturday, said Mustapha Salisu, spokesman for a special taskforce made up of policemen and soldiers deployed in the area to curb years of violence. "They came in hundreds," Salisu said. "Some had [police]

TO CHRISTINE Flowers: I think you are right. I am totally against sodomy in all of its forms and had to place myself in the shoes of those in Arizona who can't conscientiously serve homosexuals. If I had a service of some kind in the state, I couldn't do anything that would encourage or express any approval of this form of sexual perversion. (I would say the same about fornication, adultery and pedophilia.) I suppose that I could be sued and put out of business. And this is probably true in many or most other states.

OVER A period of one's life, it becomes apparent, through a person's writings or rantings, when a deep-seated anger exists in the soul. It initially appears on occasion, but as time goes by, it permeates everything. So it is with columnist Jill Porter. Underneath her editorial prowess is an unsettled life issue, one that she feels a need to seek revenge against, in any forum. It may emerge in her statement that "those of us who are wary of the increasing influence of born-again Christians" (March 3)

The Rev. Tim Kriebel has seen the impact The Purpose-Driven Life has had. Since its 2002 release, the Christian guidebook has sold more than 22 million copies and spawned special study groups at nearly 20,000 churches - including Kriebel's Emilie United Methodist Church in Levittown. As his congregation celebrated the end of its study program Sunday night, Kriebel said, many members gave testimonies about how the book had inspired them - showing, as one member put it, "that we are in worship every minute of our life and not just on Sunday morning.

Christian and Brittany Rubio just got married in November. But thanks to some savvy online research, they soon moved into their very own, brand-new, budget-friendly Philadelphia home, on the border of Northern Liberties and East Kensington. A couple like the Rubios - Christian, 32, is a government employee and Brittany, 27, is a critical-care technician - typically might have moved into an apartment until they amassed more cash and credit, but they kept their digital eyes open, planned well, and were able to buy a house within a year of their wedding.

The news from the Middle East has become so grim I am always looking for a bright spot. So, on a recent trip to Iraqi Kurdistan, it was a relief and a surprise to come across an upbeat story in an unexpected place: a church in Erbil that houses Christian refugees from northern Iraq who barely escaped the ISIS invasion in August. The first hint of something unexpected was the shrieks of children's laughter when I entered the Mar Elias churchyard. The next surprise was seeing young boys and girls playing volleyball together on a paved court under improvised night lights, a sight I'd never seen in the gender-conscious Middle East.

As the third and final round of his bout got underway, Christian Carto probably could have stayed on the outside and let outclassed Daniel Sandoz flail away. But Carto didn't see it that way. "I wanted to win the round," said Carto, of Deptford. "I didn't want to leave anything to the judges because they might have seen something different. " Carto, 18 and last year's Golden Gloves 108-pound national champion, scored an easy unanimous decision Saturday night at 114 pounds at the Golden Gloves Pennsylvania Eastern Regional Championships at 2300 Arena.

JACKSON, N.J.- After a while, there wasn't much else St. Augustine could do but pray that the other team would stop hitting so many shots. "They shot the lights out," Hermits coach Paul Rodio said. "End of story. " Despite mounting a furious late comeback attempt, St. Augustine couldn't overcome a Christian Brothers Academy team that was on fire all night. The Hermits fell, 83-77, Tuesday night in the South Jersey Non-Public A final at Jackson Liberty High School. "We knew they were good shooters, but we didn't expect them to hit how they were hitting," junior guard Sa'eed Nelson said.

Levi Worthington says he's been shown "nothing but love" by the folks at Octorara since transferring from Coatesville before this school year. He showed a measure of his appreciation Saturday afternoon on the hardwood at a pavked Colonial Elementary School in Plymouth Whitemarsh. The 6-foot-5, 165-pound senior forward delivered 24 points and six rebounds as the Braves clobbered Glen Mills, 80-54, in a fast-paced contest to earn their first PIAA District 1 Class AAA championship since 2011.

"Square up. Square up. Square up. " That's the phrase Keyen Green is used to hearing from Phil-Mont Christian girls' basketball coach Bill DeHeer. So much so that it has been drilled into her head. The 6-foot junior forward is strong, and the physicality she brings to each game makes it hard for most opponents to guard her. But, Green said, she struggled last year with controlling her body and put up what she calls "crazy shots. " Green took what her coach has been preaching and put it into practice Saturday, propelling the Falcons to a 58-37 victory over Faith Christian at Upper Dublin to capture their second straight District 1 Class A title.

On Christmas Day in 2008, I attended early-morning Mass at the Al Qaleb Al Aqdas (Sacred Heart) Church, in the Karrada district of Baghdad. Although Christians had already become targets in Iraq's civil war and thousands had fled, the Chaldean Catholic church was filled with well-dressed families, and a choir sang near a large Christmas tree. Some worshipers continued on to a Santa Claus show in a nearby park. Those days are long gone. The number of Chaldeans (whose church dates to the early Christian era)

Delco Christian's football team went farther than any other in the program's five-year history, but the dream season ended with a 29-22 loss to Pius X in the first round of the PIAA Class A tournament Friday night at Nazareth High School in Northampton County. Nazim Trammell-Wells and Sterling Williams ran in second-quarter TDs to give the Knights the early lead, but Pius X went ahead for good, 15-14, just before halftime. Zeph Ellis ran in a late touchdown, but Pius X recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock.
