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 >>
In our current cultural crisis, a jolt can do us good. Buckle your seatbelt and prepare for an alarming social development.
Why is this important? Let's put things in context.
This summer I'm honored to be serving with Matt Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, in what is called the "Pastors and Patriots Initiative." Mike Huckabee, David Barton, Samuel Rodriguez, James Robison, Dr. Alveda King, Ralph Reed, Randy Rebold and other leaders passionate about awakening America are all on the team. We hold a deep-seated conviction that time is running out to stop the spiral of silence among Christians today. more >>
Written in 1757, the following lyrics echo with great clarity to a generation that has wandered so far off that we can barely hear God's call to return to Him: "Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love. Here's my heart, O take and seal it; seal it for Thy courts above."
"Wander" means to depart, stray, or retreat from what we know to be right. As a result, guilt and shame can dominate our lives. Proverbs 13:15 reminds us that "the way of the transgressor" is hard. For many, this is an understatement if we are fighting against God – fighting against what we know to be right.
In the same way that the DMV offers a certificate of non-operation when a vehicle is not working properly, wandering from God makes us ineffective, unproductive, negative, angry, depressed, disgruntled, discouraged, critical, and lifeless. It's clear from Scripture that the wanderer within must be restrained. How do we restrain a nature prone to wander? more >>

A recently released study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that homosexuals are more likely to drink and smoke than their heterosexual peers.

A group supporting the North Carolina Pastors Network demanded the state's governor defend the constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in the state despite lawsuits from same-sex couples at the local and national level at a rally on Tuesday.
Leaders from the group of about 30 people who gathered on the steps of the old Capitol building, are sending North Carolina Republican Gov. Pat McCrory a petition asking him to use his executive powers to defend the amendment that was approved by 61 percent of voters in 2012, The Associated Press reported.
In a recent column for The Christian Post, Rev. Mark H. Creech, who attended the event and is executive director of the Raleigh-based Christian Action League of North Carolina, wrote that "it should be recognized that same-sex marriage is the biggest government power grab in the history of the United States." more >>
