Why Won't God Heal Amputees? Sweet and creamy one-ingredient ice cream in 5 minutes [Vegan] : TreeHugger One ingredient + One blender + Five minutes = One batch of thick, rich ice cream. If there's one thing I love, it's ice cream. Especially if I can eat it without feeling like I'm clogging up my arteries. So I'm grateful for this miracle fruit we so often take for granted: the banana. Yep, the secret to creamy, sweet (and yes, vegan!) ice cream is all in bananas. So, want to try it?

After a lifetime in the church, MacBain came out as an atheist at an American Atheists' convention in Bethesda, Md. This is the first in a series of stories on losing faith. Teresa MacBain has a secret, one she's terrified to reveal. "I'm currently an active pastor and I'm also an atheist," she says. MacBain glances nervously around the room. Her secret is taking a toll, eating at her conscience as she goes about her pastoral duties week after week — two sermons every Sunday, singing hymns, praying for the sick when she doesn't believe in the God she's praying to.
