Brelyn Bowman says she wasn't surprised that people in the secular world disapproved of her posting a gynecologist's purity certificate on social media after her wedding day last year. But she was shocked by the backlash that came from Christians.
The 23-year-old wife of gospel singer Tim Bowman Jr. says she made the decision to honor God by abstaining from sex until her wedding day. Soon after she proudly announced to the world on Instagram that she had remained a virgin until her wedding day by showing the certificate she presented to her father, a number of Christians responded in anger.

While few could have predicted the political rise of billionaire businessman-turned-Republican-presidential-candidate Donald Trump, one famed early 20th century theologian may have forecasted the American public's mindset that made such an unlikely person the current GOP frontrunner.

George R.R. Martin will be working on "The Winds of Winter" without distractions.
After finding out earlier this year that "The Winds of Winter," the sixth installment in George R.R. Martin's best-selling "A Song of Ice and Fire" (ASOIAF) series of novels, would not be published prior to the sixth season premiere of HBO's "Game of Thrones," fans of both "Thrones" and ASOIAF were understandably dismayed.
