I cannot vouch for the iHeart, but the Life is Beautiful festival which, as the Church is in the middle of it, I can comment on having witnessed the event. It seems sad that the people of this world want happiness yet irrationally seek it in what can never bring happiness: Evilness. The perverseness of misery is such that one can have a perverse happiness in enjoying evil.

Foolishness is the result of a person misusing the intelligence God has given him. A fool uses his reasoning skills to make wrong decisions. The most basic type of foolishness is denying God’s existence or saying “no” to God (Psalm 14:1).

Appearing before a religious group, Fayette Circuit Court Judge Tim Philpot said he loves homosexuals but their relationships are “sterile” and “just entertainment.”
Addressing the Francis Asbury Society in Wilmore, Ky., on Sept. 8, Philpot called the Supreme Court’s decision last year legalizing gay marriage “pretty close to insane” and warned that “there is no question that polygamy is on the way.” MORE
