Former Hewlett Packard CEO and Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina received an ovation during Thursday night's GOP presidential debate after she strongly denounced Planned Parenthood and implied that the Republicans in Congress should risk a government shutdown to force a presidential veto to spending legislation that wouldn't fund the abortion giant.
As the topic of whether or not Republicans in Congress should risk a government shutdown to defund Planned Parenthood was raised at the CNN debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, Ohio Gov. John Kasich argued that it is pointless to attempt defunding Planned Parenthood through the continuing resolution, if President Barack Obama is just going to veto such legislation.
With the GOP in control of both the House and Senate, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Fiorina responded to Kasich's veto argument stating that conservatives should not back down from their opposition to Planned Parenthood's $500 million in annual federal funding just because Obama is sure to veto. more >>

"I feel like if you have a better sense of self and you love yourself the right person will wait for you. ... For my marriage ... there was a solid, 'I could spend the rest of my life with you and you could be my partner on this entire journey' — and I respect you and I love you — and then there's the icing on the cake." more >>

An appeals court has ruled against the Department of Health and Human Services' accomodation to the birth control mandate for religious groups, arguing that it does not sufficiently protect religious liberty. The decision could mean that the case will go to the Supreme Court.

Plaintiffs in the case included CNS Corporation, CNS international Ministries, Heartland Christian College, and Ozark National Life Insurance Company. more >>
As secular culture continues to promote transgenderism, popularized by the transformation of Bruce Jenner into Caitlyn, a group of Christians counselors will be tackling transgender issues and how the church responds next month at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
"We wanted to do this conference because we saw that the issue of transgender was one that was getting a great deal of attention in the culture, but not understood well from a Christian perspective," said Association of Certified Biblical Counselors Executive Director Heath Lambert to The Christian Post.
