They came with iPhones, iPads, digital cameras and even some film cameras -- ready to capture the total lunar eclipse known as a "blood moon. " Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles offered a prime view, and hundreds of people were there when the eclipse began at 10:58 p.m. Monday. The full moon was beginning to move into Earth's shadow, leaving the impression that someone had taken a bite out of it. As the minutes passed, the shadow spread across more and more of the lunar surface.

He who lies down with the lion wakes up with teeth marks. Well, that's not quite it, but it seems that some kind of cosmic proverbial lesson is being taught to this country's two presumptive presidential nominees, both of whom have been mauled after getting into bed with fringe religious leaders. This week it was GOP candidate John McCain's turn. After weeks of criticism over his ties to bombastic televangelist John Hagee, who once described Adolf Hitler as a divine agent sent to force the Jews back to Israel, McCain said Thursday that he rejected Hagee's endorsement.

Stayed up well past my bedtime Monday night to catch the “blood moon.” Wish I would've known that it was a sign of the apocalypse - I might have lingered a little longer. What's that? You didn't know either? That's OK - that's why God (or Al Gore) invented the Internet. Sarah Pulliam Bailey has the particulars over at Religion News Service in her story , “ 'Blood moon' sets off apocalyptic debate among some Christians.” Full disclosure: I mostly skipped Sunday school.

Mark your calendars, sky watchers: In one week a total lunar eclipse will turn the moon an eerie shade of red. On April 14, at 10:58 p.m. PDT, the moon will move into Earth's shadow.

It's in the nature of campaigns to careen from the totally unexpected to the utterly unthinkable, but recent events in the presidential contest probably ought to be filed under the heading: "With friends like these." By Friday, all three candidates had been forced to apologize for the offensive views of a prominent supporter. John McCain was first, when one of the evangelical ministers whose approval he has so assiduously courted turns out to have some inconvenient views.

tulsa, okla. -- Twenty years ago, televangelist Oral Roberts said he was reading a spy novel when God appeared to him and told him to raise $8 million for Roberts' university, or else he would be "called home." Now, his son, Oral Roberts University President Richard Roberts, says God is speaking again, telling him to deny allegations in a lawsuit that threatens to engulf this 44-year-old Bible Belt college in scandal.

An evangelical pastor who backs John McCain tried to put his controversial remarks about the Catholic Church behind him, apologizing to the head of the Catholic League and expressing "deep regret for any comments Catholics found hurtful." Pastor John Hagee, who heads the Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, said in a letter made public Tuesday that he now knew the terms he used to describe the church, such as "the great whore," were "rhetorical devices long employed in anti-Catholic literature."

Seven Texas children were recovering Tuesday after surviving for 10 months in a Nigerian shack after their adoptive mother abandoned them, child welfare authorities said Tuesday. The mother had taken the children, ages 8 to 16, from Houston to Ibadan, Nigeria, last year and told them they were going to a boarding school, said Estella Olguin, a spokeswoman for Texas Child Protective Services. The woman then left them with a friend's brother and returned to Houston.
