A traditional marriage group urged the residents of Alabama to oppose the legalization of gay marriage in that state following a ruling from a federal judge.
Last month U.S. District Judge Callie V. S. Granade ruled the state's ban on gay marriage, passed with over 80 percent of the vote in 2006, unconstitutional.
The National Organization for Marriage denounced Alabama's issuing of marriage licenses to gay couples on Monday. more >>
How should we respond if the Supreme Court rules to redefine marriage in June? What do we do if same-sex "marriage" becomes the law of the land?
We respond just as we did when Roe v. Wade was passed in 1973, devoting ourselves all the more to stand for what is right and to be agents of positive change.
Perhaps it would help if we asked the reverse question: What would gay activists do if, quite unexpectedly, the Supreme Court rules against same-sex "marriage," even invalidating all same-sex ceremonies performed to date? more >>
A Christian couple who fled their Washington home with three small children in tow to evade Child Protective Services were eventually tracked down by police in California last week, but not before they had managed to elude authorities for more than a week after receiving donations from various anti-CPS supporters throughout their 1,000-mile journey, a source close to the family has said.

Although Carey and Rengo hit the road just in time to avoid CPS when they arrived at their Bellingham home to take custody of the children on Jan. 28, the family was finally tracked down at a gas station in California's Santa Cruz County last Thursday where the three children were taken into protective custody. more >>
