An advertising authority in the U.K. has banned a gambling ad that mocks the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and the Christian faith by promoting a "nailed on bonus."

Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham is speaking out against the upcoming "Reason Rally" at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., which is being advertised as "the world's largest atheist party," by stating that atheists will be worshiping man in their "anti-God religion."
Ham wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday that the upcoming secular gathering "is really a worship service — they worship man — worshipping the god of self. They exalt reason and have a blind faith that the universe and life arose by natural processes."
Much like he has said in the past, Ham warned that atheism is a an anti-God religion, which "exalts fallible human reason." more >>
Phil Robertson, the 70-year-old patriarch of A&E's "Duck Dynasty," argues that removing male and female distinctions in the transgender bathroom debate in America creates a "sexual free-for-all," where depravity is "going mainstream."
"There's been a lot of decrees in the past five years that I don't agree with, and that's just one of them. I don't know what percent of Americans are confused about whether they are male or female, but I'm a Bible man with common sense, and logic tells me you're either a boy or a girl, absent a few medical aberrations," Robertson told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview.
He was speaking about President Obama's decree last week to public schools, which demands that administrators allow students to use bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity, not their birth sex. more >>
Forty to 50 percent of marriages in the U.S. end in divorce, according to research by the American Psychological Association. To help married couples avoid becoming a divorce statistic, Harvest Christian Fellowship church Pastor Greg Laurie is offering up some sage advice.
In Sunday's sermon titled How to Divorce-Proof Your Marriage, part of his sermon series Home Sweet Home, Laurie shared biblical principles and life experiences based on his 42-year marriage to wife, Cathe, in a straight-talking conversation on marriage.
"After we say, 'I do,' there's a lot more to be done, and if you think you're done, you're finished," Laurie told Harvest congregants. The pastor likened marriages to gardens, saying that as a garden that is neglected becomes overgrown with weeds, so too neglected marriages suffer a similar fate. " … When we see marriages start to unravel, it isn't usually overnight, it's over a period of time when there is neglect … if you neglect your marriage, it will slowly but surely die." more >>
