U.S. SOLDIER SERVING IN AFGHANISTAN ALLOWED TO SPORT BEARD DUE TO HIS WORSHIP OF THOR

A U.S. soldier who is serving in Afghanistan has received approval to grow a beard because of his Norse pagan beliefs. Sgt. 1st Class Benjamin Hopper became the first guard soldier to receive a religious accommodation approval for a beard.

Sgt. 1st Class Benjamin Hopper of the Nevada Army Guard’s 3665th Ordnance Company was given permission to grow a Norse beard. Based on his Norse pagan beliefs, Hopper was permitted to sport a Skegg, which is the Old Norse word for a beard. Hopper said beards are “sacred and defining feature of masculine men.” Norse paganism is a polytheistic Scandinavian-based religion that is at least 2,000 years old and worships gods Odin and Thor.

“My personal faith is deeply tied to the modern warrior lifestyle that I have been able to live during my military career,” Hopper said. “In short, it is honoring the pillars of heathenism, our ancestors and ancient gods and way of life.”

The 34-year-old Hopper said he has been practicing his Norse pagan faith for about …

Florida Quarterback Kyle Trask

Q. When you look at this offensive line and the progress they've made, do you see it slowly build, getting better?

Kanye’s Sunday Service Choir Dropped a New Album

You may remember back in October when Kanye West told Zane Lowe in an interview that he was planning on dropping an album on Christmas day, called “Jesus Is Born.”

Well, yesterday, Kanye made good on his promise, though the album might not be what fans were expecting. Jesus Is Born is officially credited to his Sunday Service Choir, the gospel music collective that has been a fixture of Kanye’s weekly music-and-preaching services that have taken place at everywhere from Coachella to Joel Osteen’s megachurch. The record is a collection of spiritual-tunes and even remixes of past singles like “Ultralight Beams”, except the focus here isn’t on Kanye’s rapping or beats—it’s the vocal power of his Sunday Service Choir.

2020 Pro Bowl QB: Lamar Jackson Gives An Astonishing Answer On The Topic of Humility

On Wednesday, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was fielding questions from an adoring crowd of reporters, clearly enjoying the opportunity to interview one of 2019’s breakout NFL stars. Hot on the heels of being selected for the Pro Bowl, one reporter asked Jackson just what keeps him humble. His answer: “The Lord.”

“I give Him all His praise. The glory, the honor,” Jackson continued. “I could have been doing anything, you know? It’s crazy. I’ve been talking to Him about it, just saying ‘I appreciate you. I thank you.'” Jackson went on to say “when you feel like you’re bigger than the Lord? That’s when all that success dies. It goes away. You have to let Him know He’s the reason you’re having that much success.” “Just gotta keep going,” Jackson said. “And let the Lord know He’s number one.”
