Churches are "by and large" exempted from the LGBT public accommodation mandates of a new Massachusetts law, according to a state government commission.
In July, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker signed into law Senate Bill 2407, which among other things allows transgender men to use women's restrooms in places of public accommodation and requires employers to use the preferred pronouns of their employees.
The Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination emailed The Christian Post some comments about the new law, which has garnered concern from some that it violates the religious liberty of churches who hold events open to the general public. more >>
It is never too late to make restitution for past transgressions, even if the person who was wronged is no longer around, says the Rev. Billy Graham.
In an advice column published on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's website on Monday, a person asked the famed evangelist about how to compensate for a past sin.

The Benham brothers say that the National Collegiate Athletic Association is being used by LGBT activists and champions of the sexual revolution to facilitate a moral revolution in America.
After the NCAA announced on Monday that it pulled seven championship events scheduled for this year and next from North Carolina over its opposition to the state's bathroom law that requires transgender individuals to use restrooms and changing areas designated for their birth sex, residents Jason and David Benham spoke with The Christian Post over the phone to give their response to that decision.
The Benham brothers, popular Christian conservative real estate entrepreneurs who had their HGTV show cancelled because of their opposition to gay marriage, said the negative reaction the state has received to H.B. 2 from major national organizations and entertainers like the NCAA, NBA and Bruce Springsteen is all part of the far-left's three-step process to overtake America with a "radical revolution." more >>
