- Is This Statue of a Homeless Jesus Offensive?
A vagrant sleeping on a park bench may not merit a second glance for many hardened city dwellers, but a statue of a homeless Jesus sleeping on a bench in Davidson, North Carolina is getting a lot of scrutiny. But Rev. David Buck, 65, of St. Alban's Episcopal Church says the statue is a good lesson for those used to seeing Jesus depicted in religious art as a figure cloaked in finery. "He was, in essence, a homeless person." Sculptor Timothy Schmalz, a devout Catholic, says the sculpture is meant to challenge people.

- Ukraine launches 'gradual' operation, action limited
By Gabriela Baczynska and Thomas Grove KRAMATORSK/SLAVIANSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - Ukrainian forces launched a "special operation" on Tuesday against separatist militia in the Russian-speaking East, authorities said, although aside from a landing by airborne troops the action was limited. In Kiev, acting President Oleksander Turchinov declared a much-needed victory over pro-Russian rebels by saying the air base had been "liberated." But there was no sign of militants. A senior Ukrainian officer told the unarmed crowd that he had come to direct an "anti-terrorist operation" that Turchinov announced earlier in the day, after more than a week of missed deadlines set by Kiev for armed pro-Moscow activists to end occupations of public buildings in some 10 places in the east. Ukraine's state security service said an "anti-terrorist" operation was also in progress against separatists in the nearby town of Slaviansk but there was no immediate evidence of action.
