Let me commend you for reporting that "the Eastern PA Organizing Project, a faith-based and community group... " rebuked the School District of Philadelphia. Faith groups can and should rebuke secular organizations, for faith groups are better at changing lives than secular organizations. We are accountable to the God who made us, whereas secular organizations leave out God all together. The only hope for improving the educational system in America is impacting the Word of God upon it. Thomas Muldoon, Philadelphia

I JUST RETURNED from Crawford, Texas, where I was invited by Cindy Sheehan to participate in an interfaith service. As I was driving toward the large tent that has become the heart of the antiwar movement in this country, just a few feet from the entrance to George Bush's ranch retreat to lead prayers for peace and the souls of those of our children who have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, I passed a group of pro-Bush, pro-war demonstrators....

He has played God - twice - and beginning at 9 p.m. Sunday, he will lead National Geographic Channel viewers on a globe-spanning search for The Story of God , but don't, whatever you do, call Morgan Freeman an expert. "I'm nowhere near an expert on anything, except, maybe, me," Freeman said in an interview in January. Still, the Oscar-winning actor's curiosity had already led him to some big questions as host and narrator of the Science Channel's Through the Wormhole , whose first episode, six seasons ago, asked, "Is There a Creator?"

REGARDING Jack Phillippe's Dec. 19 letter mistakenly insinuating that God is mentioned in the Constitution: The phrase, " . . . that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator . . . " is contained in the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. But how does Jack feel seeing that the Declaration of Independence trumps his Bible in the values department in that slavery is acceptable? Or maybe I read that in another work of fiction. Bill Paci, Philadelphia Dollar Education Re: Willard Elementary school stories.

PATRICK Cubbage got fired for doing God's work. He's the military honor guardsman who worked at New Jersey's largest veterans cemetery and had a practice of saying "God bless you and this family, and God bless the United States of America" as he handed over our nation's flag to the families of deceased veterans. That's what got him canned. No wonder the firing quickly became a national embarrassment. To make matters worse, his superiors initially quibbled with his public explanation of his discharge.

On the day that the news pages and broadcast airwaves were filled with the story of Jessica Dubroff, the 7-year-old pilot who died in a plane crash in Wyoming during a cross-country trip, another little girl, Christina Hunter-Shaw, 8, was being eulogized here. She had been killed in an auto accident earlier that week near her West Philadelphia home - a story that got much less media attention. But to those who knew her - her family, her neighbors and her teachers and classmates at Daroff Elementary School - Christina was more than just a faceless name in the news.

C ONTINUING a tradition, the annual dialogue between God and Your Favorite Columnist. GOD: How you doing, sonny? YFC: Great, except for your habit of calling me sonny. I don't care for it. GOD: Remember when Explorer froze the other day when you were in the middle of writing (it never freezes when you're not) and you yelled, "God damn it"? How do you think I felt? YFC: Hmmm. I had no idea you were so thin-skinned. GOD: Give this a listen: "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

RE THE letter from Kevin Flanagan titled "Abortion: Maybe It's God's Will": I can most assuredly tell you from reading the Bible that it is not God's will that people who call themselves doctors kill innocent human beings. God has no penchant for destruction. If anyone deserves destruction it is not innocent unborn human beings - it is Americans who have allowed abortion to continue in this nation for more than 30 years. We have innocent blood on our hands. Maybe it's the U.S. who is next to be disciplined.

Is God deaf, or what? One would think so, what with President Reagan, some of his cabinet and most of the fundamentalist leaders of this country crying for a law to permit organized vocal prayer in the public schools. What ever became of the notion that God knows what's going on inside our heads even before we do? Is there a religion with a god so far away that voices must be raised in unison to get her attention? I thought only drill instructors were thay way. John R. Spengler Ambler.

The three veteran investigators were speechless. For just a few months, they had waded into a probe of clergy sex abuse in central Pennsylvania. They didn't yet know much. But they had heard about a man near Altoona named George Foster. Foster, they were told, had long been "making noise" about eliminating abusive priests in the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown - writing letters in the local papers, meeting with church leaders. Daniel Dye, the deputy attorney general leading the investigation, knew he was someone worth meeting.

Deliverance came in the form of a wide load Thursday afternoon, and it crawled west on Norris Street with its flashers on until its police escort peeled off and it was greeted with a hail of hallelujahs and arms raised toward the blue heavens. To strangers pausing at all the fuss at a North Philly traffic light, the caravan looked like two nondescript modular buildings on flatbeds, hauled by Freightliner semis that blocked traffic. The lot full of gravel and heavy machinery at the corner seemed like any other.

But you needn't have worried. Because now there is a neck and chest cream. Thank God, right? I saw the commercial on TV a few minutes ago, and I was like, they are talking to me.

Ancient Egypt, where the gods were white and spoke with British accents - or so Gods of Egypt will have you believe. The movie has rightfully taken quite the public drubbing for its whitewashing of a story with roots ostensibly in North African history. But truthfully, it's so ridiculously outlandish that the film couldn't possibly be tied to anything in reality, so it's unfortunate that it borrowed a real place as a loose setting. Written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, Gods of Egypt has a much lighter tone and clear willingness to embrace obvious campiness than their previous script, the Vin Diesel vehicle The Last Witch Hunter . Taking place in some random ancient time when mortals and gods coexisted, the film starts with the coronation of god Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau)

Japanese playwright Toshiki Okada may or may not like baseball, but he holds a soft spot for millennials. His sinister, slightly funny, and intelligent God Bless Baseball , which played Jan. 22-23 at Fringe Arts, teems with insights in its allegorical look at a game that's as American as apple pie and global economic domination. Okada's play starts innocently enough. On Tadasu Takamine's set, two twenty-something women (Aoi Nozu and Sung Hee Wi) stand inside a baseball diamond. One Japanese, one Korean, their words appear in English on a pair of short screens that flank a giant, imposing white disc that resembles the inside of an umbrella.

BLOOMFIELD, Iowa - Ted Cruz continued a weeklong sprint toward Monday's Iowa caucuses, traveling the state with high-profile conservatives who helped him frame the election as a moral choice between two candidates: the Texas senator, a self-described consistent conservative, and Donald Trump, portrayed as a con artist who shouldn't be trusted. The case for Cruz, pitched by the candidate, as well as by Rep. Steve King (R., Iowa) and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, boiled down to this: his respect for the Constitution and his faith in God. "It's a binary decision now," King told a few dozen people at a church here, about 100 miles southeast of Des Moines.

We would be remiss in calling Randy Blythe nostalgic, but there are hints that the Lamb of God frontman longs for the old days. For instance, he said in a recent interview, he likes when his band is the opening act. "I hate headlining," Blythe said, chuckling, speaking in advance of Saturday's sold-out show at the Electric Factory in which Lamb of God will, in fact, headline. The bill also features Anthrax, Deafheaven, and Power Trip. "I'd rather open up. It's a lot easier to steal a show early on. By the time we play, three other bands are going to play.
