Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the executive order Monday, which argued that "in a free society the equal rights of all citizens, including LGBT citizens, must be protected and cherished."
"All agencies, departments, boards, authorities and commissions [will] review all requests for state funded or state sponsored travel to the state of North Carolina so long as there is law in effect there that creates the grounds for discrimination against LGBT citizens," continued the order. more >>
"The View" host and actress Candace Cameron-Bure came out of the gate swinging in defense of the Christian values of Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Monday.
Bure took umbrage with comments by "The View" co-host Michelle Collins, who said she hoped recent allegations by the National Enquirer that Cruz has had multiple affairs during his marriage to his wife, Heidi, are true because she wants to see the senator fall.
"I, for one, hope it is true … " said Collins. "But then, more so than that, just to see and show what a hypocrite he would be — if it is true, because it's alleged. But he's such a guy [who is] about family values and he lives by this kind of crazy moral code. So I love to watch people like that fall." more >>
While promoting the release of his latest DVD for the film "God's Club," well-known Baldwin brother Stephen revealed that he is connecting with a church in New York City to start a Bible study that will help young people who are lost, depressed or confused.
"I just found in my heart that what young people are seeking more than ever is to be challenged with an authentic encounter and experience with truth. That's what I believe young people are looking for," Baldwin told The Christian Post.
The actor maintained that he's gearing up to host the Bible study because after visiting many churches that focus on youth in the city, he felt there was still something missing. Baldwin contends that as much as young, hip churches are "blessing" the younger generation with music and a practical kind of Bible teaching, that really only goes so far. more >>
