Dr. Ben Carson was hit with some tough questioning in Wednesday's presidential debate that led him to address his opposition to gay marriage.
The 64-year-old retired neurosurgeon was asked by CNBC's Carl Quintanilla about his role as a board member of Costco, one of the world's largest warehouse retail stores. The moderator pointed out that a marketing study found Costco to be No. 1 "gay-friendly" brand in America, as it extends benefits to same-sex spouses.
Carson was asked how he could be on the board of a company that has an employment policy that counters his own Seventh-day Adventist view on homosexuality. more >>
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The LGBT agenda will not outlast Christian witness, according to Michael Brown, founder and president of FIRE School of Ministry, who believes "the gay revolution has within itself the seeds of self-destruction."
Speaking at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics at Calvary Church earlier this month, Brown said while many churches don't want to address issues pertaining to LGBT culture and rights, he believes they "absolutely must be addressed."
Calling for compassion for people who identify as LGBT, Brown advises Christians to "resist the gay activist agenda with courage," but to do so with "hearts of compassion and backbones of steel," which he says are not negotiable in the struggle for the culture and staying faithful to the Christian witness. more >>
