The American Family Association has set up a petition that has been signed by over 45,000 people as of Thursday morning urging Hilton Worldwide to "market responsibly," after the hotel chain placed a full-page ad of two men together in bed.
AFA explained that the ad was published in the June 2016 edition of Travel and Leisure magazine, which "isn't a gay-specific magazine sent directly to homosexual's homes."
The conservative group explained that the magazine is widely distributed and can be found in many public places, such as doctors' or auto repair waiting rooms. more >>
Evangelical leader the Rev. Franklin Graham has slammed comments made by Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., who compared Jewish people to "termites" that destroy homes during a speech on Monday to an anti-Israel group.
"Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson's comments were reprehensible," Graham said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

In 1985, social critic named Neal Postman, in the introduction to his book "Amusing Ourselves to Death," compared two famous dystopian visions: "1984" by George Orwell and "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley. He noted that though many people thought their visions similar, Huxley and Orwell had very different theories about how people would lose their freedoms.

Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham, whose life-sized Noah's Ark theme park opened to the public earlier in July, says atheists "go ballistic" when children visit the Ark Encounter and declare that they disagree with naturalism.
"When I post videos such as this one that show what children have learned about the truth of God's Word, atheists go ballistic and say we are brainwashing kids — but they want to brainwash them in the hopeless, anti-God religion of naturalism," Ham said Wednesday in a Facebook post, linking to a short video of a 9-year-old boy talking about his visit to the Ark.
Ever since the Ark opened, Ham has been debating critics such as Bill Nye "the Science Guy," and has been fighting atheist groups like The Freedom From Religion Foundation that have warned school districts against bringing children to the theme park in Kentucky. more >>
Just because a person should pray for guidance doesn't mean they shouldn't think things through, says famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
In a syndicated advice column published in the Kansas City Star on Sunday, a person queried Graham about how some of her relatives always resorted to prayer when making a decision.
"My sister and her husband are always praying about decisions they have to make, but I think they just need to use their brains to decide what to do. After all, why did God give us a brain if he didn't expect us to use it?" asked the person. more >>
