By an almost 2-1 margin, Americans in a recent poll declared they agree that "States and citizens should remain free to uphold marriage as the union of a man and a woman and the Supreme Court shouldn't force all 50 states to redefine marriage."
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — and her eight other colleagues on the high court — would do well to take notice.
Justice Ginsburg seems oblivious to this strong current in public opinion, however. In an interview with Bloomberg News on Feb. 12, she was asked if she thought "that there are parts of the country that would not be able to accept" a Supreme Court decision declaring "a constitutional right for same-sex couples to marry." more >>
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are happy newlyweds and recently spoke about their relationship's progression and living life in the public eye, especially when dealing with assumptions about their marriage.
"People are just making assumptions," Jessa told Memphis' FM 100 on Wednesday about her relationship with Ben and her family's lifestyle in general. "They don't really know us, and I don't let it affect me."
One of the biggest questions and assumptions is that the couple, who married on Nov. 1, will immediately begin their family. Sister Jill and her husband Derrick announced their pregnancy not long after their honeymoon, and many have questioned when Jessa and Ben will start their own family. more >>
A church on the gulf coast of Florida has lost its tax-exempt status after authorities discovered that its building was being used to host nude parties with "the sexiext ladies on the beach" and served as an after-hours nightclub to avid college party-goers visiting the town while on spring break.
Beginning on Feb. 28, the Panama City Church Life Center: A Spiritual Community, run by pastor Markus Bishop, opened its doors to the Spring Break crowd by hosting a week-long event, which has been labeled as "Spring Break Amnesia: The Tabernacle."
According to a schedule for the tabernacle obtained by the Panama City News Herald, events hosted in the church included a "slumber" party with a dress code of pajamas and lingerie, an "anything but clothes" party, a "Mardi Gras" themed party where the schedule asks "what will you do for your beads?" The week-long event also included the "wet and wild" party, a rave-style event, and was capped off with an all-night-long party on Friday. more >>

On Saturday at the Iowa Agriculture Summit, I called on Washington to put American workers first.
Critics say I'm a "populist," but the truth is I'm a nationalist. I put America and its workers first. Too many in the political class put Wall Street and Washington elites first. They aren't fighting for American workers. more >>
The son of a Pakistani Christian servant, who was accused of stealing from her employer's home, was killed by local police officers last weekend after he was arrested and beaten in hopes that his beating would force his mother to confess to the burglary.
The British Pakistani Christian Association reported that the body of 20-year-old Zubair Rashid Masih was dumped onto the street in front of his mother's home in the early morning of March 8 in the Shamsabad area of the Punjab province.
On March 4, his mother, Aysha Bibi, was arrested on charges that she stole about 35,000 rupees and 100 grams in gold ornaments from the home where she worked as a domestic servant. more >>
The Supreme Court is slated to rule on the subject of same-sex "marriage" this term. Here are four questions I want to ask same-sex marriage supporters:
1) If the Supreme Court says that it is okay for a man to marry a man and a woman to marry a woman, then how can they stop there?
Once they open Pandora's Box, how can they say that polygamy is unconstitutional? The Supreme Court already ruled on that. Utah, a state founded by Mormons, could not be accepted in the Union until there was the promise that they would not practice polygamy, Reynolds v. United States, 1878. more >>
