Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz said that support by his presidential rivals for drafting women into military service would be both "nuts" and "immoral."
"As I was sitting there listening to that conversation, my reaction was, 'Are you guys nuts?' We have had enough with political correctness, especially in the military," Cruz said at a campaign stop in New Hampshire, according to the Boston Globe, referring to Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie agreeing that they would support Selective Service registration for women.
"Political correctness is dangerous, and the idea that we would draft our daughters to forcibly bring them into the military and put them in close combat, I think is wrong," he added, also arguing that it would be "immoral." more >>

The 38-year-old "Yeezus" rapper said he and Franklin, 46, were discussing West's upcoming yet-to-be officially titled eighth studio album. West explained why he was referring to it as a gospel record.
"When I was sitting in the studio with Kirk, Kirk Franklin, and we're just going through it. I said this is a gospel album, with a whole lot of cursing on it, but it's still a gospel album," West said in an interview on Big Boy Radio. "The gospel according to Ye.

If you've been following my ministry for any length of time, you know that I constantly address issues of concern to me in the news, whether they have to do with moral, cultural or spiritual issues and whether they pertain to America, Israel, or the nations.
So, it should not surprise you that I'm frequently addressing the presidential elections, often with conviction and strong points of view.
That being said, if you and I love God and Jesus is our Lord and the Word of God is our final authority, it is important THAT WE DO NOT DIVIDE over these issues, as passionate as we might be. more >>
Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has slammed new school guidelines in Alberta, Canada, that allow children in public schools to pick their own gender identities.
"The cry of many in this generation of Americans is 'inclusivity' and 'tolerance.' It's astonishing, the radical changes that have been made to our Western society in the name of being inclusive and tolerant (but only inclusive and tolerant of certain viewpoints — and not the biblical ones!). Of course, this is most often seen in regard to gay 'marriage,' homosexual behavior, and transgender issues," Ham wrote in an AiG blog late last week.
"Well, this isn't just happening here in America. We're seeing this occur all across the West," he added, linking to Alberta's school guidelines issued by Education Minister David Eggen back in January. more >>
