Members of the Holy Gospel Church started the fight in the lobby between the early morning and 11 a.m. services.

David and Jason Benham, the twin brothers who were fired from an HGTV reality show because of their opposition to gay marriage, said conservative Christians are being targeted in America for their beliefs and need to stand up and thrive in the midst of adversary.

And people of faith often times want to be silent. And now is not the time to be silent. When darkness rises, it's time to turn the light on," the brothers said in an interview with Fox News' "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday.

Dawkins said during an interview with BBC that he is doing fine physically following a stroke he suffered in February, which forced him to cancel a number public appearances, including Washington D.C.'s "Reason Rally" earlier in June.
When asked whether the stroke has caused him to reconsider some of his views on death and life, The God Delusion author said, "Well, nothing lies beyond. I consider mortality from time to time, I suspect we all do, but certainly nothing lies beyond." more >>

"The First Lady had a different sort of liveliness. She once threw a Bible at an agent on her detail, hitting him in the back of the head. He bluntly let her know it wasn't acceptable. He told me that story himself," Gary Byrne writes in his upcoming book, Crisis of Character, according to Breitbart News.
