A synagogue, mosque and church being built together

Tri-Faith Initiative, a partnership of Christians, Jews and Muslims that aims to foster greater interfaith relations is kicking off a multimillion-dollar effort to bring the three Abrahamic religions onto a single 35-acre campus.

"We thought, let's intentionally choose our neighbors," says Vic Gutman, a spokesman for the Tri-Faith Initiative, which launched five years ago as a grassroots interfaith effort and quickly gained funding and community support among the city's religious leaders. "We want to form a relationship between all Jews, all Muslims and all Christians."

The group, which announced this week that each religious group had closed on land purchase deals for the interfaith campus that total $5 million, will also build a Tri-Faith Center that will have educational and social facilities for use by all the campus' religious groups.*

Dear LIB Readers: How do I tell him I'm not always in the mood?

Hello Linda, I need to know if LIB readers can help me with a very personal issue. I need advise from the real people out there that have gone through what I am experiencing right now. I am a happily married woman. I love my husband to distraction and I find him extremely sexy and hot. Plus, my husband is a stallion in bed, always trying different positions and moves...but...
- How do I tell him I really do not like doggy style? It hurts. I fear he might just sulk and not talk to me If I tell him. You know how men are like big babies.
- How do I tell him I am not always in the mood, I don’t enjoy it when he feels like he is seducing me after I tell him “later”. I usually let him have his way but feel exhausted and weirdly used.

Photos of Mo'Cheddah being carried by Peeshaun, the younger brother in the music group, Skuki, circulated on the net a few months back, with some reports claiming the two music stars dated...etc etc. When asked by an Encomium reporter about the photos...Mo said:
When I saw the pictures, it did look wrong at the time. I am small, everybody carries me. Every human being I know that's my good friend carries me because I am light and I'm nice to carry. And he's a good friend of mine and that day he carried me...we took a lot of pictures, we were just having fun. People have dirty minds, I don't have a dirty mind. I always see things from a positive side. People tell me, you are so happy, you see things in colours, you don't know that life is wicked. But now I know that people don't think like I do, so I have to be afraid now. I can't just take photos with my friend, I can't hug female fans anymore. I have learnt you have to be afraid of the world.
Be afraid of the world indeed...lol. Relax girl, it's one of those things. And you might not have a dirty mind, but he sure does...see where he placed his hands...badt guy...lol

A new billboard showing the Virgin Mary holding a 'positive' pregnancy test was recently unveiled by St. Matthews-in-the-City Church in Auckland, New Zealand.

The church says the billboard, called "Mary is in the pink", was meant to "spark thought and conversation. Vicar Glynn Cardy of St. Matthews said the church wanted to focus on what it was like for a real mother with a real child. "It's about a real pregnancy, a real mother and a real child.  It's about real anxiety, courage and hope."

Question of the day: Why do rich Nigerians ONLY marry themselves?

Why is it that in Nigeria, the rich people only marry themselves? The Onirus marry the Tinubus. The Odogwus marry the Subomi-Baloguns. The Adenugas marry the Dangotes. The Okoyas marry the Sarakis. The Ojoras marry the Folawiyos. The  Kukus marry the Fowlers. Etc etc...

Everytime you see a society wedding, it's one rich man's son marrying another rich man's daughter. Why can't an Otudeko or an Akiolu marry an Ikeji for instance? LMAO!

No, but seriously, why is it like that in this country? I mean, Prince William married a commoner, so kini big deal?

Let's discuss this abeg...I want to read what you think.

Is that...a cleaner? Wow!

When asked by a City People reporter to address rumours he is no longer with his Abuja-based baby mama, Vicki Godis; he said:
The true story is that it is true that the lady gave birth to a set of twins for me, the kids are over a year now and I am still with her. I will not give all the details but all I can say is that she was there for me when I needed a shoulder to lean on. She is my bed of rock and has supported me all along. Disregard what you hear in the media, we are still together.
