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 >>

The Christian owners of a Texas bakery say they have received threats against their business and family after they declined to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding in mid-February.
Edie and David Delorme, the owners of Kern's Bake Shop in Longview, Texas, came under fire last week when it was reported they refused to bake a cake for the wedding of Ben Valencia and Luis Marmolejo because doing so would have conflicted with their deeply-held religious belief that same-sex marriage violates God's definition of marriage.
