The Christian owners of a Texas bakery who declined to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding earlier this year claim that an LGBT activist who was upset with their decision threatened to burn down their house and "violate" their son with a broken beer bottle.
Edie and David Delorme, the owners of Kern's Bake Shop in Longview, Texas, stood by their Christian convictions on Feb. 17 when they turned-down a wedding cake order for Ben Valencia and Luis Marmolejo.
Although Edie was upfront with the couple when they came into the bakery and inquired about their cakes and even provided them with a list of bakers who would make their desired wedding cake, Valencia contacted the Longview News-Journal to tell the media outlet that the Delmores rejection made him and Marmolejo feel "dehumanized." more >>
DALLAS – While on the road promoting her upcoming film "Miracles From Heaven," popular actress Jennifer Garner ("Alias," "13 Going on 30," "Daredevil") said she hopes the inspirational film causes people to re-examine their faith and beliefs.
"I think we have to pour some positivity back into the world. I think it's so necessary to focus on what's wrong and how we can fix it but it's also so incredibly important to see the beauty that's around us all the time so that we can foster that," Garner told The Christian Post about the Sony Pictures Entertainment film. "We can raise and lift up the importance of the smallest miracles that happen around us everyday."
"Miracles From Heaven" recounts the real-life story of a 12-year-old girl name Anna (Kylie Rogers), who is the daughter of Christy Beam (Garner). Anna is suffering from a pseudo-obstruction motility disorder and is unable to eat, using feeding tubes for nutrition. One day, she has a near-death experience after falling from a tree and is subsequently cured of her disorder – a miracle that the Beam family credit to their Christian faith. more >>
The United States Supreme Court ruled that a lesbian parent who was not the birth mother of their children cannot be denied visitation rights and adoption.
In a decision rendered Monday morning, the highest court in the land reversed a decision from the Alabama Supreme Court granting the birth mother the right to bar her former partner from adopting or visiting their children.
At legal issue was the Alabama court's refusal to recognize a Georgia order allowing the non-birth mother to adopt the children. more >>
While promoting the release of his latest DVD for the film "God's Club," actor Stephen Baldwin shared his support for GOP front-runner presidential candidate Donald Trump, arguing that the businessman is what Christians in America need in a leader.
"I've said this about Donald Trump, in my two experiences with him doing 'Celebrity Apprentice,' I found him to be actually behind-the-scenes a pretty regular Joe guy. Down to earth, a father, a husband and a businessman," Baldwin told The Christian Post.
In the last two or three years, Baldwin, who is also a director, producer and author, has focused heavily on ministry, charitable good works and humanitarian works. According to his book, The Unusual Suspect, the famous Baldwin brother became a born-again Christian after the 9/11 attacks and has been doing ministry ever since. Admittedly not one to normally speak about politics, Baldwin maintained that he does, however, wholeheartedly endorse his former boss, Trump. more >>
National Harbor, Maryland — In order to fix America's stagnating economy, the nation must first address the the breakdown of the traditional American family and find a remedy for declining marriage and birthrates, panelists at the Conservative Political Action Conference argued Friday morning.
While speaking at a CPAC Panel called "State of the Family in America: How Do We Measure Success?" well-known conservative economist and CNBC senior contributor Larry Kudlow argued that much of the reduction of economic growth in America is being caused by an increase in poverty resulting from a reversal in the traditional child-rearing paradigm.
Kudlow explained that more Americans today are not waiting before they are married and have economic security to reproduce and have kids. more >>
