Megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress has backed GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson over the recent controversy in which Carson suggested that a Muslim whose beliefs stand in opposition to the Constitution should not serve as president of the United States. Jeffress, who leads the 11,000-member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, said Christian voters need to use a religious litmus when deciding on a candidate.
"To say that a candidate's faith doesn't make any difference is absolutely ridiculous," Jeffress told OneNewsNow in an article posted on Tuesday.
He added that Christians need to use a "religious litmus story [sic]" when picking a candidate. more >>
In 2014, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers chided Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson for surmising that God has a hand in the outcome of NFL games, and Rodgers revisited that point after Sunday's game.
"I think God was a Packers fan tonight, so he was taking care of us," Rodgers quipped after the Packers defeated the Seahawks 27-17.
When the Seahawks beat the Packers in the NFC Championship last January, Wilson suggested God was behind the victory. Although both quarterbacks are Christians, Rodgers had a completely different perspective on the matter. more >>

Good, 34, took to Instagram after "How to Get Away With Murder" actress Viola Davis was awarded an Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama. Davis mentioned Good, along with a number of other actresses, who were opening the door for other thespians of color to find their place in the world of television.
While Good said the moment "took my breath away," she also reflected on the hardships that she has had to endure in the entertainment industry and how God has brought her through. more >>

Donald Trump may be leading in many national polls, but he lags far behind in a poll gauging his popularity among a key demographic — women.
According to a straw poll of those attending the National Federation of Republican Women's recent convention, Carly Fiorina is trouncing Trump among GOP women. A whopping 27% of respondents named her as their first choice, but a mere 14% favored Donald Trump. After Fiorina's stellar performance in last week's debate, my guess is that gap will widen even more.
And, it's no wonder. Fiorina is winsome, articulate and classy. She's everything every mother hopes her daughters will be. The Donald is offensive, vulgar and juvenile. He's everything every mother hopes her sons will not to be. more >>
Fatherlessness in the U.S. remains a prevalent issue as the number of children living apart from their biological fathers is estimated to be nearly 30 percent (or roughly one in three), according to 2011 Pew Research data.

In 1960, 11 percent of children lived apart from their biological fathers as compared to 27 percent in 2010. more >>
