Social media websites in general and Facebook in particular may be linked to an increased likelihood of divorce, claims a recently released study.
"Results show that using social networking sites negatively correlated with marriage quality and happiness, and positively correlated with experiencing a troubled relationship and thinking about divorce."

A group advocating for marriage being legally recognized as only being between one man and one woman has called for a boycott of JP Morgan Chase.
National Organization for Marriage announced its boycott of the financial company earlier this week due to a survey the company did of employees that many believe was meant to punish employees who disagree with pro-LGBT positions.
Joseph Grabowski, director of communications for NOM, told The Christian Post that the idea for the boycott came when "Chase asked its employees in their annual survey whether they were 'allies' of the LGBT community." more >>
A pro-traditional family advocacy group has launched an email campaign opposing a Burger King local promotion in San Francisco that featured a specially packaged, limited-edition gay pride Whopper with a rainbow wrapper in anticipation that the fast food chain may go national with the burger.
"Even though this promotion was at just one location, as a chain, Burger King is promoting homosexual behavior as healthy and something to have pride in," said American Family Association president Tim Wildmon in a statement released Wednesday. "We believe that promoting and encouraging unhealthy behavior will drive families away."
Fernando Machado, Burger King's Senior Vice President of Global Brand Management defended the company's promotion, telling USA Today that the sandwich "showcases who we are as a brand," adding, "It shows how we, as a brand, believe in self-expression." more >>

Brooks Hamby, the student who gave thanks to Jesus and asked for the blessing of "the God of the Bible" for his peers during his high school salutatorian speech last month, said he's surprised the school district believes their attempts to stifle his freedom of speech is constitutional.
The Brawley Union High School District in California read over Hamby's salutatorian speech for approval and rejected it three times because Hamby mentioned his religion, Jesus and God.
"I was really surprised the school would deny my speech not once, twice, but three times," said Hamby in an interview with Todd Starnes of Fox News last week. "I just wanted to say a few nice words and allow people to see the good news, which is the Gospel." more >>
