A Georgetown, Texas man said that he was awoken Wednesday night by a flashlight moving outside his bedroom door, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
He checked on his sleeping wife, grabbed his 9mm handgun and went to investigate — stark naked.
“I have a tattoo of the grim reaper, my hair is sticking up all crazy and I’m naked,” said the homeowner, who asked that his name be withheld for safety reasons. “I’m not sure if [the burglar] was more afraid of me or the gun.”
Upon seeing the homeowner, the burglar reportedly screamed, stammered, “I’m so sorry, sir,” and leapt headfirst through the first-floor window he had used to enter the home.
A woman was arrested for posing as a doctor and carrying out physical exams on men in her own home.
Investigators claim Joann Elizabeth Wingate, 56, advertised her services to truckers who needed to have updated physicals to keep up their commercial driver’s license.
Wingate examined one driver who spotted a sign she posted at a truck wash.
But he got suspicious after being told there was a problem with her forms.
The trucker told cops that “Dr. Wingate” performed a complete exam, and even had him provide her with a urine sample.
Wingate, of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, was arrested on charges of forgery, fraud and identity theft. She is being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.
State Police officials report that Wingate, who charged $65 for an exam, displayed a bogus medical certificate that contained information corresponding with the license of Dr. Barbara Wingate, a Philadelphia-area psychiatrist.
The trucker told cops that “Dr. Wingate” picked him up in and old car and drove him to her “office.”
He thought it was odd the office was inside her home but ‘Dr. Wingate’ did “everything that a doctor would normally do during a physical.”
Investigators believe at least 16 drivers had physical exams conducted by the bogus doc this year.
During a search of Wingate’s home, police seized items used to conduct physical exams and urine tests and a large quantity of medical documents and advertising brochures.
They also found marijuana and narcotics paraphernalia in her home Wingate is scheduled for a July 16 preliminary hearing.
Well, that’s one way to liven up a press conference…
Japanese lawmaker, Ryutaro Nonomura, was the subject of an extremely dramatic discussion on Tuesday when he was asked to answer questions about his bizarre expense reports. Nonomura had visited a nearby hot springs 106 times last year on Japan’s dime, totaling about $30,000.
When Nonomura began to explain himself, things got a little weird. He broke down into hysterical crying, screaming, and table pounding.
“I finally became an assembly member… with the sole purpose of changing society,” Nonomura said between sobs. “I’m putting my life on the line!”
While we might find his antics comical (and a little bit sad), Japanese society places value on stoicism and control, especially when it comes to their politicians.
“Many people are starting to demand that he resign,” said Hideaki Asada, who is a member of Nonomura’s assembly office. “He is usually not that emotional.”
It mostly just sounds like someone needs a nap.
…………………………….Timothy Ray Murray, human
The robot takeover has begun, at least according to Timothy Ray Murray, who lost the election for Oklahoma’s 3rd district (obtaining just 5.2 percent of the vote) to incumbent Frank Lucas (R). Murray is now planning to challenge the election results, on the grounds that his opponent has been replaced by a robot body double.
Murray’s Web site notes that “The election for U.S. House for Oklahoma’s 3rd District will be contested by the Candidate, Timothy Ray Murray. I will be stating that his votes are switched with Rep. Lucas votes, because it is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike. Rep. Lucas’ look alike was depicted as sentenced on a white stage in southern Ukraine on or about Jan. 11, 2011.”
(Lucas told news channel KFOR that he had never in fact been to Ukraine. He also observed: “Many things have been said about me, said to me during course of my campaigns. This is the first time I’ve ever been accused of being a body double or a robot.”)
Murray’s Web site goes on to reassure us that: “I, Timothy Ray Murray, am a human, born in Oklahoma, and obtained and continue to fully meet the requirements to serve as U.S. Representative when honored to so. I will never use a look alike…” This makes me wonder. “I’m definitely a human,” like “I am very suave and good at talking to people,” is the sort of statement that seems untrue the instant you say it.
Forget toxic waste dumps, the Environmental Protection Agency apparently has a more immediate cleanup problem in its own backyard: An employee defecating in the hallway.
GovernmentExecutive.com, the government’s business news daily and key website for federal managers and executives, reported Wednesday that the EPA management for Region 8 in Denver sent an e-mail earlier this month to staff pleading to stop inappropriate bathroom behavior, including defecating in the hallway.
In the e-mail, obtained by Government Executive, Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor noted “several incidents” in the building, including clogging the toilets with paper towels and “an individual placing feces in the hallway” outside the restroom.
“Management is taking this situation very seriously and will take whatever actions are necessary to identify and prosecute these individuals,” Cantor wrote.
According to the e-mail, a consultant was brought in to address the problems.
That email says “the consultant advised us that this is very dangerous behavior as it includes property destruction and a disregard for the health and safety of others.”
The email goes on to say behavior that includes the destruction of property and disregard for human health is classified as attack-related behavior.
EPA spokesman Richard Mylott told Government Executive in a statement that the agency could not comment on “ongoing personnel matters.”
On Thursday morning, the EPA released the following statement:
Mental illness and destructive behavior in the workplace are serious issues that all large organizations must periodically face. EPA’s actions in response to incidents that occurred months ago have been deliberate and have focused on our responsibility to ensure a safe work environment for our employees. Our brief consultation with Dr. Nicoletti on this matter, a resource who regularly provides our office with training and expertise on workplace issues, reflects that responsibility.
It’s unclear who defecated in the hallway at the EPA, but 9NEWS Psychologist Dr. Max Wachtel says whoever it is might suffer from some sort of mental illness.
“It can be. It can a symptom of cognitive problems. It can be a symptom of psychosis, and it can be a symptom of substance abuse. Sometimes it’s just an extremely immature person,” Wachtel said.
The University of Michigan and Michigan’s Department of Transportation are working together to build a fake city with taxpayer money.
Why? To test driverless cars, of course.
They will be creating a realistic scenario without other cars or real drivers to test the new technology before automated cars hit the pavement, according to inhabitat.
This 30-acre fake city will be at University of Michigan’s North Campus Research Complex and has been designed specifically for testing the automated cars. This faux city, called the Mobility Transformation Facility, will be operated by U-M’s Mobility Transformation Center (MTC), which, according to a statement from the University of Michigan, is a public/private partnership that “aims to change how people and goods move around.” U-M’s College of Engineering is a university member of that center and donated funding for the facility.
In addition to the College of Engineering donating funds, the MTC is partnering with the Michigan Department of Transportation, which provided $3 million to help build the facility, according to MTC’s website.
This city is designed like a typical city with intersections, traffic lights, sidewalks, benches and simulated buildings. There will also be some obstacles or “risks” involved, such as construction barriers and crosswalks.
“We will actually be writing code for the test facility,” assistant professor of computer science and engineering Edwin Olson said in the U-M statement. ”We’ll be able to trigger tricky traffic signal timings, or a pedestrian stepping into the intersection at just the wrong time, for example.”
In addition, according to the MTC’s website, the city will also include different kinds of road surfaces (concrete, brick, dirt, asphalt), vary the number of lanes in a road and have tunnels and traffic circles.
U-M’s statement says the test city will “model the kind of connected and automated mobility system that the [Mobility Transformation Center] aims to enable in Ann Arbor by 2021.” And the system could ”dramatically reduce crashes, ease traffic and reduce pollution and energy use.”
And Peter Sweatman, the director of both the Mobility Transformation Center and the U-M Transportation Research Institute, said that such a system would have cars that could communicate with other cars and the rest of the world, not working as autonomous “islands unto themselves.”
The first car to be tested in this fake city is an automated Ford Fusion hybrid. Michigan Engineering researchers are working with Ford to create sensors and mapping technology for the car.
And the testing that they’ll be doing can be changed for ever lap around the city, said Associate Professor of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Ryan Eustice in the same statement.
Eustice said, “That will give us a leg up on getting these vehicles mature and robust and safe.”
MTC said that the facility should be open by fall 2014.
The father of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl creepily harassed a pair of twin sisters in Hailey, Idaho, for several months, according to police reports obtained by the Daily Mail.
In 2011, long before Robert “Bob” Bergdahl began learning Pashto and Arabic or tweeted a Taliban spokesman, the bizarro bearded dad stalked Lacey and Allie Hillman, police documents say. He allegedly tried to steal a peek at one of the twins in the shower and even stole a little gnome from their garden.
For anyone who has a daughter – or is a daughter – the allegations are frightening.
The Hillman sisters told police that Bergdahl, a UPS deliveryman, harassed them for over four months. Bergdahl’s son was about two years into his Taliban captivity during this period. The elder Bergdahl was – and remains – married to Jani Bergdahl, the mother of Bowe Bergdahl.
The twins said Bergdahl, 51, drove by their residence – apparently they lived together – several times each day.
On one occasion, the sisters claimed, he left an angry note charging that one of the then-twentysomething sisters was “two-timing” him.
Later, he allegedly left a note saying, “I am sorry for whatever I did.”
A few weeks later, the sisters told police, Bergdahl confronted Allie Hillman at her front door after her boyfriend had left her house. She told police Bergdahl knocked on the door and said, while laughing, “What are you two-timing me, bitch?” according to the Mail.
Another time, Bergdahl allegedly sneaked around the outside of the home for a few hours and approached the house as Lacey Hillman was taking a shower.
Lacey told local cops that she heard a noise and stepped out of the shower wearing just a towel. She walked to a glass door. There, she told police, she saw a “shadowed person.” It was Bergdahl, she said. He tried to get her to come closer to the door.
“According to Lacey, a minute passed while Robert shook his head on the other side of the closed door and he eventually left while throwing his hands up in the air,” the 2011 police report states.
It was after this voyeuristic episode that the sisters went to the police, saying they were “very scared,” reports the Mail.
The twins noted to police that they understood Bergdahl was likely suffering emotional stress since his son had been a prisoner of war for two years, but they said they wanted the stalking to stop.
The cops had a chat with Bergdahl, warning him to stay away from the twins’ residence and places of work. He agreed to these terms. The Hillman twins agreed not to press charges.
Bowe Bergdahl, a soldier in the U.S. army, was held captive by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Afghanistan from June 2009 until his release in May 2014. The release was part of a five-for-one prisoner trade with the Taliban that the Obama administration secretly orchestrated.
The Bergdahl clan is expected to be reunited this weekend in San Antonio.
Heartache for Jennifer Lopez
The 44-year-old singing superstar and her 27-year-old beau have been trying to work through their problems despite their busy schedules.
J-Lo has a concert on Wednesday in the Bronx neighbourhood of New York City where she grew up and Casper has been in Hollywood working on his acting and choreography career.
The couple ‘hit a rough patch ‘a few months ago before’ all this stuff came out about sexting,’ a source told People.
But this wasn’t just a regular ‘sexting scandal’, apparently the exchanges happened with a transsexual bikini model, Sofie Vissa. Here is more from The Daily Mail:
Sofie Vissa told Woman’s Day that the pair began chatting on Instagram last month before sharing raunchy images, and added that Smart clearly knew that she is transgender.
Smart allegedly told Vissa, ‘I wanna see more, what you got?’ and she claims that she replied with the words: ‘What do you wanna see? My smile?’ Vissa claims Smart said in response: ‘Haha sure. That’s the best attribute on a person.’
According to the claims things grew more flirty between the pair. Vissa alleges that she wrote to Lopez’s boyfriend: ‘”I like smiles, eyes and nice asses,” and he put “me too. I got all of those.”‘
Vissa told Woman’s Day that contact between herself and Smart ended when she sent him an entirely nude photo. He is then said to have allegedly deleted the photos and messages they exchanged.
Florida Judge John Murphy and public defender Andrew Weinstock came to blows on Monday outside the courtroom.
Judge Murphy asked Weinstock to step outside where he started swinging at him.
A supervisor says the public defender thought they were going to talk it out in the hall, but says the judge threw punches at him. view full article
This took place in a Brevard County Florida courthouse.
Things got heated between a judge and a public defender in a Florida courtroom Monday.
Judge John Murphy is heard on the surveillance camera using an expletive to describe how he will beat up public defender Andrew Weinstock.
WFTV reports it happened when the judge was pressuring Weinstock to get his client to waive his right to a speedy trial.
The two are seen walking out into the hallway.
Weinstock’s supervisor says the public defender thought they were going to talk it out in the hall, but says the judge threw punches at him.
A teacher is currently being held for evaluation in a psychiatric ward of a hospital after allegedly murdering her disabled daughter.
27-year-old Magdalena Nunyango Amunyoko was born with a rare condition, according to the Huffington Post, leaving her bedridden and with slurred speech. Her 49-year-old mother, whose name has not yet been released, worked as a teacher in South Africa and served as her daughter’s caregiver.
Amunyoko’s brother reportedly found her charred remains after the mother used a barbecue grill to burn her daughter’s body.
The Huffington Post reported:
Amunyoko’s mother reportedly refused to tell her son where his sister was, so he searched the home for her. It was outside, on a barbecue grill stand, that he found the gruesome remains of his sister.
When authorities arrived on the scene, Amunyoko’s mother allegedly refused to let them inside her home. Investigators reportedly broke down the front door to gain entry.
“We found a dustbin with ashes and other burned items and when it was lifted up, we found a human body, which was identified to be that of the late 27-year-old woman,” Oshana Regional Police Commander Ndahangwapo Kashihakumwa told The Namibian Sun.
Inside the home, investigators reportedly found handwritten letters on a table with the words “burn the enemy” written on them.
“She told the police that there are devils in the house and that she was seeing devils,” said Kashihakumwa.
In addition to the victim, police found the remnants of a television, a satellite dish and Amunyoko’s wheelchair.
Neighbors told local reporters they saw items burning in the suspect’s backyard Friday, but were unaware Amunyoko’s body was among them.
“We just thought [Amunyoko's mom] was moving out of the house or something… We saw her burning things and we still just thought she was cleaning up her yard,” a unidentified neighbor told The Namibian.
The preliminary police investigation indicates the victim was hacked to death with a machete Friday, before she was burnt on the barbecue grill.
Authorities are investigating Foursquare Gospel Church, suspecting that teachings of demons and spirits might have indoctrinated the mother.
Pastor Festus Negumbo denies the teachings, stating, “We do not teach people about demons and devils, which will confuse them, but we teach people about morality. She has not been coming to church for over a year now and we tried to reach out to her, but she isolated herself. She never said anything about demons in her house to the church.”
An Orange County homeowner called the power company to report a problem, and ended up leading them straight to a major marijuana grow house, authorities said.
Investigators said they carried out more than 100 pot plants from the home in the Canyon Ridge subdivision near Clarcona-Ocoee Road.
When Channel 9’s Kristyn Caddell went to the home, the odor of marijuana was so pungent, she could smell it from across the street.
Investigators were at the home all night Wednesday removing the plants from the top floor of the home.
They said there was so much marijuana in the home, that there was very little living space.
“They were actually remodeling the back room into another grow operation, which was going to be even larger,” said Robert white with the Corporal Narcotics Tip Squad.
Neighbors watched in awe as the plants were being carried out.
Norm Pozzie said he never noticed the pungent smell, but did see a lot of expensive cars and well-dressed people stopping by the house on a regular basis.
When the homeowner called the power company to report an electrical short, officials with Duke Energy noticed the lines had been tampered with.
The man was allegedly running some illegal power to the home to run his grow house, but it shorted out his power.
“We know who lives here, we know who paid for everything and we know who set it up,” White said.
Investigators said they will be putting out a warrant for the man’s arrest.
Feminuts vs Trannies! This showdown of victim classes is for the I Am Oppressed Championship Belt! The Other McCain offers a preview
The ongoing conflict between radical feminists and transgender activists, which I first noticed in January and revisited last night in the context of the Dana McCallum rape case, has escaped the notice of mainstream liberal journalism. Liberals tacitly side with the transgenders in pretending that the radfems — a/k/a TERFs (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists) — have no legitimate grievance.
What the TERFs perceive is that male-to-female transgenders are cynically seeking to usurp and co-opt the “feminist” label for their own advantage, thus shunting aside biological women and demoting them to second-class status within their own movement.
Of course, the instinctive conservative reaction to all this is to pop some popcorn and enjoy the schadenfreude. But the very fact that liberals want everybody to ignore this obscure conflict should be a clue that the conflict is, in fact, highly significant. Much like the Hugo Schwzyer “male feminist” controversy, which long raged on the margins of Gender Theory discussion before erupting into headlines, the TERF war against transfeminism (and vice-versa) tells us a lot about the problems of contemporary progressivism.
This one should have a stipulation. The loser has to make the winner sandwiches for life!
Before a wig-wearing nutjob threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton, the footwear flinger gave her heart to accused Colorado mass killer James Holmes.
Alison Ernst, 36, of Phoenix, was identified Friday as the sneaker-tossing kook who targeted the former First Lady one day earlier during a speech at a Las Vegas casino.
And Colorado officials confirmed she was the loopy lady escorted from the courtroom after a bizarre — and bald-headed — outburst during an August 2012 court hearing for Holmes. . . .
Twenty months earlier, she arrived in a Colorado courtroom with her head shaved while wearing a red dress before declaring she held evidence “vital to the defense of James Holmes.” Two deputies quickly escorted her outside.
The Arizona woman later filed an off-the-wall lawsuit detailing her devotion to Holmes, who was accused of killing 12 people and wounding another 70 in an Aurora movie theater. . . .
“I seek a restraining order to stop Holmes from entering my mind through subliminal messaging and causing me to be obsessed with him on a daily basis.”
Wow! Sounds like she already has a restraining order against reality
El Chupacabra may not be just a legend, if we’re to believe a family in Texas that has captured what it claims to be the mythical, bloodsucking, ugly thing.
Sunday night, Arlen Parma called his wife Jackie Stock outside to look at what he found in their tree in Ratcliffe, Texas.
“He called me to come and look, and I said, ‘Bubba, that looks like a baby chupacabra,’” she said, according to KABC.
The descriptions of the creature over the years are not far off from the animal that was found in Stock and Parma’s yard. The small, canine-like animal with claws and fangs sits back on its hind legs and eats with its hands.
As legend has it, ”El Chupacabra” (“goat sucker”) is a small, beastly creature that has been described to look like a kangaroo or deformed coyote with fangs. The legend took off when goats and other animals started turning up dead, blood drained, and fully intact in Puerto Rico in the 1990s.
Parma is convinced that the creature he captured may in fact be the chupacabra.
“I hunted coons for 20 years with dogs and I ain’t never seen nothing looks like that right there,” he said. “A coon don’t make that noise, or a possum. What makes that noise? I guess a chupacabra does, I don’t know.”
Wildlife expert Brent Ortego is crashing the party, unconvinced that this critter is a chupacabra. Ortego, who is a wildlife diversity biologist with Texas Parks and Wildlife, believes that the creature is some sort of canine.
“It’s never been proven to be a unique species. It was always something out there that allegedly either caused harm or threatened to cause harm to people or their livestock,” Ortega says about it.
Chupacabra or not? Watch the video below and decide.
Frankly, I would prefer a course that taught me how to get rich in ten days, or how to meet the woman of my dreams in just ten days. Besides, I am basically a male Lesbian now, so………….
It is impossible, however, to ignore the radical feminist trajectory:
An upcoming LGBTQ seminar at the University of South Carolina Upstate (USCU) will teach students How to Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less and will focus on LGBTQ cultural mores.
According to the school’s website, theater artist Leigh Hendrix will perform her one-woman show, “How to Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less,” to kick off the sixth Bodies of Knowledge Symposium and Conference. . . .
Hendrix encourages her audience to shout “I’m a big ‘ol dyke!” in a show that is “one part instructional seminar, one part personal story, and one party wacky performance art.”
The symposium is funded by outside grants as well as university funds according to Dr. Lisa Johnson, the Director of the Center for Women’s & Gender Studies at USCU.
Dr. Johnson declined to discuss what percentage of the funding was coming from the university. . . .
Yeah, see, that whole yelling “I am a big ‘ol Dyke” Is a deal breaker. I mean what would my neighbors say? I would surely not get invited to any more block parties, not that my neighborhood has those anyway. But still, I imagine me standing in my yard yelling “I am a big Dyke” would kill any chances of me being invited IF we ever have a block party. So, the lesson here is is you ever want to get invited to a neighbors party never act like a crazy obnoxious Lesbian, or an obnoxious feminist, but I repeat myself.
A 26-year-old Reston woman was arrested Saturday night after allegedly showing up naked at the Arlington Magistrate’s Office.
Police say Maura Fussell arrived at the magistrate’s office around 11:00 p.m. seeking to visit her husband, who had been arrested in Clarendon earlier that day. She was drunk, completely naked and refused to get dressed or leave in a cab, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.
Sternbeck was unable to say whether Fussell arrived at the office wearing clothes and subsequently removed them, or whether she arrived there naked.
Fussell was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and drunk in public. She was held in jail until sober, police said.
It seems 47-year-old Cambodian prankster Chin Chean is up to his old tricks again. Not familiar with Mr. Chean’s hijinx? Well, according to The Daily Mail, “Chin Chean was known to take drugs and commit unusual acts, such as running around the local pagoda naked.” Classic Chin!
In his latest antic, Chin Chean attended the funeral of a 17-year-old village girl only to return to the site of her grave the following day to… um… finish paying his respects. Ugh. At 10pm the night following the bereavement services of the victim, Chean began to attempt exhuming her body with the intent of committing necrophilia. Upon reaching the deceased’s coffin, Chin found it was too small to enter. Dumb luck!
All of that digging apparently tired poor Chin out. Instead of, you know, climbing out of the Earth and taking the fit issue as a sign that desecrating the dead was a terrible idea that he should leave alone forever, Chin remained 6 feet under and fell asleep in the coffin on top of the victim’s body. And that is exactly where Cambodian police found him the next morning – taking a necro nap.
Several people in the village surrounding the cemetery spotted a foot poking out of the ground, which is – needless to say, pretty weird. The witnesses notified the police and the family of the departed. Fortunately for Chean, Cambdonian authorities have elected to question him regarding his actions rather than send him directly to court for his transgressions.
Still, I have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ll hear from Chin Chean.
Michael Luecke, a 72-year-old substitute teacher at Westhill High School, was jailed Wednesday after he was allegedly discovered masturbating in a school hallway.
According to police, Luecke’s activity was discovered at about 7:30 a.m. when a school paraprofessional who was walking the hall noticed a man laying on the floor.
Thinking that the man might be hurt, the paraprofessional moved in for a closer look. That’s when she realized that Luecke’s hand was in his pants “manipulating his penis,” according to the arrest affidavit.
The woman immediately alerted school officials who removed Luecke from the class he was teaching and then contacted police.
Investigators reviewed school surveillance video which reportedly shows Luecke masturbating in a school stairwell while staring at a group of students in a nearby courtyard. Luecke is then seen laying on his back and masturbating as six students pass by his location.
Luecke was booked into jail and charged with public indecency, breach of peace and risk of injury to a minor.
The director of public safety at Concordia University Chicago has been charged with two misdemeanors because, police say, he masturbated into a shoe belonging to a female employee of the school.
The alleged masturbator is Tim Margis, reports Oak Leaves, a local suburban newspaper.
Police say the incident occurred on Feb. 10 at approximately 9:30 p.m. somewhere on the campus of the private Lutheran school.
The unidentified female employee saw Margis, 38, leaving her office. He was buttoning up his pants, she said. He was fastening his belt.
The woman told police she asked Margis why he was in her office. He explained that he was merely checking things out because the door had been left ajar.
Later, the woman claimed, she found a mysterious “clear liquid” on the inside of one of the shoes she had left in the office.
Two days later, on Feb. 12, police detectives interviewed Margis at his home and, they say, he confessed to entering the employee’s office and leaving the “clear liquid” there.
Margis faces two charges: public indecency and disorderly conduct. Both are misdemeanors.
He is also out of a job. On Feb. 12, school officials suspended Margis and banned him from campus.
“We cooperated fully with the investigation and he was terminated on Feb. 13 for misconduct, less than 24 hours later,” Concordia spokesman Eric Matanyi told Oak Leaves.
Concordia University Chicago isn’t actually in Chicago. It’s in River Forest, a suburb one suburb over from Chicago that is filled with huge old mansions and the occasional Frank Lloyd Wright house (or Frank Lloyd Wright knockoff).
The highly religious school is affiliated with The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. The campus is dry. Students and faculty members are encouraged to attend a short chapel service each weekday.
On its website, Concordia describes itself as focused on the gospel of Jesus Christ. “The life of Christ is lived-out [sic] in countless ways at Concordia: from the classroom, to the dorm room, to the practice field, to the concert hall, our students are being formed to lead and serve with ‘integrity, creativity, competence and compassion’-all in His name.”
