If Christianity were illegal, would there be evidence to convict you? I ask because Christianity is not a closet religion; what Christ conveys, we're obliged to champion. Evidence will be our words and actions, and we've been historically persecuted for this. Christians defend children gestating in their mother's wombs. Society says, "Kill them, they aren't really human unless they're wanted. " Jesus says "Don't murder," yet these human offspring are dissected and society applauds.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan SYLMAR -- The Skyward Christian High football team has been in existence for only two years and so the Saints know they have a lot of growing to do on the field before they can contend for a CIF Eight-Man Small Division title. They took their first step this season as they captured the Omega League title by winning their three games by an average of 35 points. But Skyward Christian's first-round opponent, Cuyama Valley High, wasn't like any team it had faced before.

Mirjam Swanson VAN NUYS -- Tujunga Skyward Chistian barely had a chance. That the Saints even had a chance at all was good enough, as they lost to No. 3-seeded Tarzana Stoneridge, 97-38, in Wednesday's first-round CIF Division VA boys' basketball playoff game at Montclair Prep in Van Nuys, in Skyward Christian's first postseason appearance. "Just getting this far is great," said Saint Coach Rich Lowe, noting that there are no seniors on the team.

Saro Sarkisian SYLMAR -- When the Skyward Christian football team faced Trinity Lutheran Saturday in the first Omega League game for both teams, the smartest thing Trinity Lutheran might have done was showing up with nine players at First Lutheran High School. Skyward Christian had a 36-8 lead at the break and it seemed pointless for the Mustangs to continue with players playing hurt and not having anyone to substitute, so the game was called, saving the Mustangs further embarassment.

Saro Sarkisian SANTA BARBARA -- After being blown out in its season opener -- playing without a few key starters -- the Skyward Christian football team faced Laguna Blanca on Saturday, where the Saints looked more like the 2000 defending Omega League champions. Skyward Christian shut out Laguna Blanca, 12-0, as its defense stepped up, making key plays and the offense -- which had 31 total yards of offense in the opener -- came out firing. The Saints (1-1)

Claudia Peschiutta LA CRESCENTA -- Ralph Winter is used to working on multimillion-dollar blockbusters, films sure to draw large crowds and even bigger box-office returns. The resume of this La Crescenta producer includes such well-known movies as "X-Men," "Inspector Gadget," and three "Star Trek" films. But Winter is also willing to take a chance on a not-so-sure thing when he believes in the project. Within a few weeks, "Left Behind" -- a movie produced by Winter that is based on the popular Christian thriller of the same name -- will open in about 1,000 theaters nationwide.

Going along with the wishes of the misguided American Civil Liberties Union, the Times Community News organization (of which the Glendale-News Press is a part) and most of the advertisers in your Dec. 15 "Holiday" Shoppers' Guide have deliberately omitted the word "Christmas" in that publication. After all, Dec. 25 is the birthday of the Christ child and, it should be pointed out, is observed as a national federal holiday. I counted 64 ads in the guide with only four of them using the word "Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays" or "Season's Greetings."

GLENDALE - Glendale High's baseball team has faced some tough pitching in nonleague action so far and its offense just hasn't found a way to overcome the bigger arms yet. Glendale, taking part in its first game of the Babe Herman Tournament on Saturday morning, looked, at times, overwhelmed at the plate, as Village Christian's Chris Davidson had his way with the lineup and led the Crusaders to a 4-1 win at Glendale High School. Like Johnson in the opener, Davidson struck out 13 batters, while allowing three hits and two walks in a complete game gem.  “He had command, never got behind, threw curveballs for first-pitch strikes,” said first-year Nitros Coach Alan Eberhart, whose team lost for the first time this season by more than one run. “We were overmatched and never really responded.” The Nitros (2-4)

GLENDALE - Madison Federici didn't pay much attention to the CIF Southern Section Division VI seedings once they were unveiled. The senior forward on the Glendale Adventist Academy girls' basketball team was more concerned about the Cougars getting off to fast starts and then suffocating opponents defensively. Backed by a noisy partisan crowd, 13th-seeded Glendale Adventist excelled in both facets Saturday, as it cruised to a 40-25 upset victory against fourth-seeded Baptist Christian.

BURBANK - The first half was simply sloppy. The second half was simply a blowout. A turnover-filled first half by the Glendale High and Village Christian boys' basketball teams allowed the Nitros to stay close against a talented Crusaders squad. A mistaken-prone second half by the Nitros turned a competitive game into a runaway contest for the Crusaders. Village Christian forced 24 turnovers and scored 41 second-half points to come away with a 75-33 victory against the Nitros on Tuesday in a pool-play game of the Burbank Holiday Tournament at Burbank High.

GRANADA HILLS - Maybe it's time for Flintridge Prep football Coach Antonio Harrison to give an inspiring halftime speech before the game starts. At least that's what he joked after he saw his team put together an inspired performance in the second half for the second week in a row. It wasn't enough to get the Rebels their first win, as their 20-point run was but a footnote in a lopsided loss, 47-20, on the road to Heritage Christian at Granada Hills...

He's been showered with numerous accolades while piling up victories, including being selected to participate in the Texas League's All-Star Game for the first time.
