President Obama is calling the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage a "victory for America," but the Rev. Franklin Graham warns Obama is leading the nation on a sinful course and "God will judge him and us as a nation if we don't repent."
At a Gay Pride event in the White House prior to the court ruling this week, Obama said, "There has been an incredible shift in attitudes across the country," and he was right, Graham wrote in a post on his Facebook page.
"But it is definitely not a shift for the good of America. The shift in attitudes he refers to is the moral decline we are seeing manifest daily around us," Graham, who leads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote. more >>

A website claiming to have been created by a 26-year-old pregnant woman, who intends to have an abortion on July 10, has issued a challenge to pro-life donors, stating that if they want to save her unborn baby's life, they must donate $1 million in three days through the website or else she will have the abortion.
On a website called ProLifeandAntiWoman.com, the alleged pregnant graduate student writes that she's seven-weeks pregnant and has "every intention of having an abortion," but is giving the "157 million Americans that identify as pro-life" the chance to prevent it.
The student explains that she goes to school in a state that "has very recently passed extremely restrictive abortion laws" requiring women to wait three days after consulting an abortionist before they can have the procedure, which is likely North Carolina since the state passed that law in April. more >>
Commenting on Friday's landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that made same-sex marriage a constitutional right, outspoken megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress said he believes the court's decision has further "emboldened" and "equipped" liberals to take legal action against Christians who resist same-sex marriage.
Jeffress, the 59-year-old pastor of the 11,000-member First Baptist Church in Dallas, composed a Friday op-ed for Fox News, where he stressed that the court's ruling will have many "legal, sociological, and spiritual consequences for years to come."
In a Friday interview with The Christian Post, Jeffress expanded on his argument and stated that religious colleges and universities won't be the only ones that are at risk of facing government sanctions — like loss of tax-exempt statuses — or lawsuits for refusing to compromise on marriage. more >>
The world of dinosaurs has gone mobile. "Jurassic World: The Game" hit iOS and Android devices two weeks ago, almost the same time as the box-office movie "Jurassic World" hit theaters worldwide. The game has breached the 2 million download mark since its release.
The game was developed by mobile game company Ludia in partnership with Amblin Entertainment and Universal Partnerships and Licensing. Ludia has had a hand in similar game development, having developed the game "Jurassic Park Builder." They started work on the current game about one and a half year ago.
The game reflects the actual characters and the movie's storyline, owing to the fact that the developers had a chance to visit the actual locations where the film was shot and had a chance to watch how the movie was shot and made. more >>
There is a new high-end smartphone coming to U.S. markets in July and its name is Axon. Tech journalists were invited to a press event for the phone's launching in July. The invitation however did not indicate which company was behind the new phone.
The PC Mag report was the first to reveal, after some digging, that the phone is in fact manufactured by the fourth largest seller of smartphones in the US, the Chinese company ZTE. One evidence of this is the presence of "/zte/" in the website's source code.
According to another report in Tech Times, part of ZTE's marketing strategy to build hype for the new phone is a contest it launched called "Axon You Wish," which has $10,000 cash prize and of course, a new Axon smartphone. The contest runs from June 15 to July 14. more >>
