Rev. Al Sharpton on Fred Phelps Jr. and Pat Robertson’s controversial comments:

“They always come out with a theological distortion of where they need to be, And all I can say is ‘Fret Not Thyself Because of Evildoers’ and that’s what they are. To use and misuse the bible to try and point up and prop up there phony right winged kind of philosophy that has nothing to do with the bible. And I think that it’s time for many of us that are ministers, that really try to deal with this with prayer to stand up to them. It’s time for the Christian right to meet the right Christians and quit, denigrating and demonizing the truth!”

7. Candice Glover on Beating the “American Idol” Odds:

Candice Glover on Beating the “American Idol” Odds:

“I got cut in Vegas week. So that was in December and I let the whole season go by from January to May and then audition cities came up. My friends Jessica Sanchez and D’Andre were all on that season so I was still voting and stuff so I thought about them and I was like this could be me if I try one more time. The reason why I auditioned in Season 11 was because of the change in the judges. Simon was there my first time and he wasn’t a fan. That was a really hard season for me. I was only 19 didn’t really know who I was or anything. J. Lo and Steven Tyler they were really nice. So I really enjoyed them.”
