Six Americans raised by gay parents sent signed letter to designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for their comments supporting the traditional family.
The traditional family "is not a passing fashion," Gabbana told Italian magazine Panorama. "It contains a sense of belonging to the supernatural."
"We haven't invented the family," Dolce added. "It's not a question of religion or social status, there's no turning over a new leaf: when you are born, you have one mother and one father. At least, that is how it ought to be. How do you tell a child who their mother is [in a world] of rented wombs [and] catalog sperm? Not even psychiatrists are prepared to confront the effects of these experiments." more >>
Phaedra Parks, reality TV star of Bravo series "Real Housewives of Atlanta," recently revealed how a prayer helped connect her with One Church International's first lady, Sarah Jakes-Roberts, daughter of popular televangelist Bishop T.D. Jakes.
Parks, an Atlanta attorney and cast member of "Real Housewives of Atlanta," let cameras film her dealing with the aftermath of crimes committed by her estranged husband, Apollo Nida, that have resulted in him being sent to prison. Nida is serving an eight-year prison sentence for bank theft and identity fraud charges, while Parks has been left to care for the pair's two young sons.
In the latest episode of the Bravo TV reality television series, Jakes-Roberts, the daughter of T.D. and Serita Jakes of The Potter's House in Dallas, Texas, appeared to help Parks deal with her problems in a healthy way. Sarah got married to Touré Roberts, the senior pastor of One Church International in Hollywood, last year. more >>
Third-party reproduction technologies are unethical because they amount to baby selling and create children for the pleasure of parents, donor-conceived Alana Newman told The Christian Post in explaining her defense of Dolce & Gabbana.
Although many proponents of reproductive technologies claim that surrogate babies are "so wanted," that doesn't make it ethically right to rob children of their natural parents just so that one parent can be enjoyed with the life of a baby, Newman told CP Monday. more >>
As the unmarried homeless couple stood on a street corner in northern California with their four children holding up a sign that read "Family Needs Help God Bless," little did they know that within 10 years they would be living comfortably in their own house overlooking Lake Elsinore and living their lives by "God's design."
In a recently released book called From The Curb To A Castle, author Robert Wessely recounted how he and his homeless family were saved by a "perfect stranger," who picked them up off the streets and let them live in his home for seven months, leading them to God and helping them eliminate all drug and alcohol addictions.
In interviews with The Christian Post, Robert and Melissa Wessely admitted that their lives were in a dark place in the winter of 2004-2005, when they were living night-by-night out of motel rooms, and spent the days begging for money on the streets of Eureka so that they could afford the next night's room. more >>
As a number of states are considering right-to-die legislation, a retired Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl champion linebacker, who is now battling the debilitating and fatal disease known as ALS, decried a Maryland physician-assisted suicide bill, saying it would rob society of "God given" life.
Forty-five-year-old O.J. Brigance, who won a Super Bowl ring with the Ravens in 2000, testified last Tuesday before the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee hearing on the state's new "death with dignity" bill. The bill would make it legal for patients prognosed with six months or less left to live, who are mentally competent, to ask their doctor for life-ending medication.
"Every day, every hour, every minute, every second is God given and valuable," Brigance told lawmakers. "To enact this legislation would [risk] lives and possible future contributions of Marylanders." more >>
The Liberty Institute is accusing the U.S. Navy of violating federal law when it refused to grant religious accommodation to Navy chaplain, Wes Modder, who is facing potential discharge after complaints were filed over him voicing his Christian beliefs on homosexuality and premarital sex during counseling sessions with sailors.
After the commander of Naval Nuclear Power Training Command, Capt. Jon R. Fahs, sent a Feb. 17 memo to Navy Personnel Command suggesting that Modder be relieved of his duties, removed from the Navy promotion list, and possibly discharged, Modder and his attorneys at the Liberty Institute filed a request asking the Navy to grant Modder religious accommodation during his counseling sessions.
However, the request was denied on Tuesday in a letter sent by Fahs, which rejected the claim that Modder was being targeted because of his religious expression. more >>
