A petition demanding that personnel in the United States Armed Forces respect the religious freedom of their cadets garnered over 100,000 signatures and was sent to the Air Force Academy in Colorado earlier this week.
Organized by the Family Research Council and the American Family Association, the petition calls for restoring "military religious freedom" and asks supporters to "speak up for the Air Force cadets."
The petition, created in light of reports of religious intolerance at the Air Force Academy, was delivered to the military installation on Wednesday and addressed to Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson. more >>
In the second part of The Christian Post's interview with McKrae Game, president and founder of Hope for Wholeness, the ordained Southern Baptist minister explains why people should stop using the term "gay Christian" and how his organization differs from Exodus International, which closed last year after serving people with unwanted same-sex attraction for 37 years. Game, who left the homosexual lifestyle, also acknowledges that he is living in "denial," though he defines the term differently. Part one of the interview can be read here.
CP: Let's talk about the term "gay Christian." How do you feel about it, and is there a better term that we should be using?
Game: I do not like the term. I'm not a person who is politically correct. I don't say things to try and make people like me or anything like that. But I read the book Washed and Waiting by Wesley Hill to try and understand these growing groups of people — I'm obviously not one of them — who call themselves gay Christians. more >>
Christians struggling with same-sex attraction and homosexuality are finding support in a nonprofit called Hope for Wholeness. The organization specializes in helping people with unwanted same-sex attraction to live Christ-centered lives.
Following the closure of Exodus International last June, McKrae Game, president and founder of Hope for Wholeness, and his team have continued to provide scriptural guidance and loving mentorship to Christians who are dealing with the sin of homosexuality.
Earlier this month, Hope for Wholeness hosted its first four-day conference in North Carolina called "Hope Rising" that was attended by 150 participants, including teenagers who were accompanied by their parents. more >>

I have often thought that if the Devil can't make a man bad he'll make him busy. When I am busy or in a hurry it is impossible for me to have quality relationships with God or people.
The Devil knows this and is able to hide behind any man's "busy" schedule to accomplish his goal: the destruction of his relationships. He is very aware of the fact that to really know someone a man must learn to slow his pace down to be present and connect. There are the simple mechanics of healthy relationships that can be easily destroyed through external over-commitment and its partner – hurry.
Satan's scheme gets men playing the "busy" card as a justification for lack of quality in their connections with God and people. A full and robust work life should be an expectation of men not a rationalization for why our relationships are weak – especially when it comes to your relationship with God. Get that. more >>
I've never been a big television watcher. I abhor commercials, and even more so, cable company monopolies legitimized by legislators dismissing the consumer's best interest.
Thanks to the Internet, I've recently watched several exceptional television series. Which brings me to Jack Bauer. Watching anyone for over 200 hours could be exhausting, but the talented Kiefer Sutherland is quite easy on the eyes.
The Emmy-Award winning drama, 24: Live Another Day, effectively illustrates the universal reality that evil is as real as our need to be saved from it. more >>
