The persecution has varied from “churches in Rangoon finding it difficult to obtain permission to renovate buildings, to pastors in Chin State being killed.” In the same report, the Myanmar Ministry of Religious Affairs stated, “There shall be no home where the Christian religion is practiced.”
Artists make art. We don’t make statements about art. The art that we do inspires millions and billions to continue to voice their ideals in a way that better serves humanity. This is intrinsically what every artist on earth has committed to do. Some of us may become famous.

I like the fact that this little fun exercise shows me that I have more features in common with Naomi Campbell than Brenda Song! Who would have guessed?

Wow, that’s a radical thought? Not really!
