Chapter 30 just repeats that you should follow God. If you follow him he wont kill you, and if you don't he will kill you.
Chapter 31 reiterates that Joshua will succeed Moses. The only interesting thing that happens today is that God predicts that the Israelites will rebel again. So why not prevent it? What is the point of enumerating all of the punishments you're going to inflict on these people if they aren't going to listen to you anyway? "I love you, but you're going to rebel against me and I'm going to kill you". Good plan?
This is more like religious news rather than bible news. The catholic church is threatening to stop feeding the homeless if D.C. doesn't change it's proposed gay marriage law. What?! Ok, even if gay marriage is wrong and terrible (it's not) what do starving homeless people have to do with it? Not only is this against their religion (they're supposed to be feeding the poor), it's against any sort of reasonable definition of morality.
