During his Decision America Tour stop in Atlanta this week, the Rev. Franklin Graham told a local news station that God's judgement is coming to America for going against His law, which is destabilizing society.
Graham, who heads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, was asked a series of questions by the media outlet about gay marriage, specifically why people who oppose same-sex marriage aren't just as wrong as those who supported segregation.
"The Bible doesn't teach segregation. But the Bible is very clear about what it says about homosexuality. No question. It is very clear. So you can't argue with that. Segregation was something men came up with. God didn't come up with that," Graham said earlier this week in an interview with local station 11 Alive following a rally at the Georgia capitol. more >>

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz accused rivals Donald Trump and Marco Rubio of using the "talking points" of President Barack Obama when calling last June's Supreme Court same-sex marriage ruling the "law of the land."
While speaking at the Carolina Values Summit co-hosted by The Reconciled Church Movement and NC Values Coalition at Winthrop University in South Carolina Thursday night, Cruz began by telling the crowd that there are "three fundamental values" that were at the "heart of the gathering" — life, marriage and religious liberty.
As South Carolina voters will cast their primary ballots next Saturday, the Texas senator encouraged conservatives not to listen to each candidate's campaign rhetoric but to instead judge them "by their fruits." more >>
A federal judge ruled Tuesday that controversial Kentucky clerk Kim Davis has not violated a court order by asking her office to issue same-sex marriage licenses that do not include her name and title.
Davis, the elected clerk of Rowan County, became the center of a media firestorm last summer when she was held in contempt of court and jailed for over five days in September when she refused to issue marriage licenses following the Supreme Court's June ruling that legalized gay marriage.
She maintained that issuing same-sex marriage licenses with her name and title on them would be a violation of her Apostolic Christian faith, as it would symbolize that she was authorizing unions that were contrary to her conviction of God's definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman. more >>

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has admitted that the Episcopal Church's suspension in January by the Anglican Communion for supporting gay marriage is fair, but said that it will not change their stance on the issue.
"We're not changing — so there shouldn't be an expectation that in the next three years the Episcopal Church is going to change," Curry said at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. earlier this week, according to an article on the Institute on Religion & Democracy blog Juicy Ecumenism.
"This is who we are," Curry added. more >>
