Former "Hercules" star Kevin Sorbo has spoken out about his career and life in Hollywood, noting that if you are a conservative Christian, "you will get attacked."
"I think being a conservative in Hollywood and being a Christian in Hollywood, you get attacked," he told CNSNews. "It's so strange to me that the media sits there and protects the things that they protect, or they ignore the things that they ignore, and they go after stories like global warming—like that's more important than what's going on in the world right now with these terrorists."
Sorbo starred in the hit film "God's Not Dead" and can be seen in "Let the Lion Roar," where he portrays the legendary Protestant preacher and theologian John Calvin. Sorbo has been rather outspoken about his faith in recent years and is dedicated to spreading the Christian message of goodness and salvation rather than anything else. more >>
"Duck Dynasty" star John Luke Robertson said that he knew fiancé Mary Kate McEacham was "the one" for him after they met four years ago.
"We actually met four years ago at a Christian summer camp," Robertson, 19, told Us Weekly. "There was some chemistry! I had tried to date her before, and she kept turning me down. I just kept at it and she finally said yes!"
The couple got engaged on Saturday, Oct. 11, but the engagement did not come without a lot of prayer on Robertson and McEacharn's part. more >>
The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Annise Parker, the city's first openly lesbian mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.
"The city's subpoena of sermons and other pastoral communications is both needless and unprecedented," Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christina Holcomb said in a statement. "The city council and its attorneys are engaging in an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions."
ADF, a nationally known law firm specializing in religious liberty cases, is representing five Houston pastors. They filed a motion in Harris County court to stop the subpoenas arguing they are "overbroad, unduly burdensome, harassing, and vexatious." more >>
A Catholic friend texted me this morning: "Any Baptist churches have services in Latin? Asking for a friend." I texted back, "No, but the Feast of Saint John the Baptist lasts all year long." His was a sort of gallows humor, as he watched with dismay what some are calling a "pastoral earthquake" in the Roman Catholic Church on questions of marriage and family.
We don't yet know exactly what the report means, but reports indicate that the synod is asking for a more "pastoral" and "more inclusive" approach to cohabiting couples, same-sex partners, and others, while retaining the traditional Catholic views on sexuality and the family.
Should all of this even matter to those of us who are Protestants? We do not, as Martin Luther put it, accept the authority of popes and councils "since these have often contradicted one another." And yet, there are some important questions posed here, that we should consider. more >>
Americans against amnesty are not only worried about unemployed Mexicans crossing our southern border illegally to take U.S. jobs. More than ever, we need the fence that Congress voted for and President George W. Bush made a television photo event when he signed it into law.
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) said that at least 10 ISIS thugs have crossed our southern border. Hunter added, if we caught 10, "you know there are going to be dozens more that did not get caught by the Border Patrol."
Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) says the Islamic State, ISIS, is actively working with Mexican drug cartels to infiltrate and eventually attack Americans. ISIS has told us it wants to extend a caliphate over America, so why is anybody surprised that they are doing what they said they wanted to do? more >>
Joni Eareckson Tada, an internationally known advocate for the disability community who has been a quadriplegic more than 47 years and is a breast cancer survivor as well, has made a plea to terminal cancer patient Brittany Maynard who plans to die through physician-assisted suicide to rethink her decision.
"Like many, my heart broke when I watched Brittany's video in which she outlined her plans to die through physician-assisted suicide. No one — absolutely no one — welcomes the pain that dealing with a terminal disease invariably brings, and it's clear that this young woman is firm in her convictions," said Tada in a statement released on Monday.
"But if I could park my wheelchair beside her, I would tell her how the love of Jesus has sustained me through my chronic pain, quadriplegia and cancer. I don't want her to wake up on the other side of her tombstone only to face a dark, grim existence without life and joy; that is, without God. There's only one person who has transformed the landscape of life-after-death, and that is Jesus, the One who conquered the grave, opening the path to life eternal. Three grams of phenobarbital in the veins will only provide a temporary reprieve. It is not the answer for the most important passage of her life. more >>
