"Fuller House" made its season one debut on Netflix Feb 26. with 13 episodes that reunited most of the original "Full House" cast. The sitcom spin-off is receiving a lot of heat from evangelicals who were hoping Candace Cameron Bure's Christian values would keep the show family-friendly.
"Fuller house" is centered around Bure's character, DJ Tanner, who is a recently widowed mother of three boys. Her sister Stephanie offers to move in and help her raise her sons, and Kimmy, her best friend, also moves in with her teenage daughter Romona.
The 13 short episodes take viewers on a ride of family, motherhood, the party life and dating. more >>
The Rev. Franklin Graham recently stated his support for a Catholic Archdiocese whose leadership is ending its connection to the Girl Scouts.
In a Facebook post published Tuesday morning, Graham expressed his support for the Archdiocese of St. Louis' opposition to the Girl Scouts over the youth organization's stance on abortion and homosexuality.
"The Girl Scouts organization sure isn't what it used to be! St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson isn't worried about being politically correct in letting people know about it either," wrote Graham. more >>
A congregation in Wisconsin severed its ties to the Boy Scouts of America in response to the youth organization's decision last year to allow openly gay Scout leaders.

The Episcopal Church's Presiding Bishop Michael Curry told the denominational leadership they must "take Gospel high ground" following last month's Anglican Primate vote suspending the Church for its support of gay marriage.
In the opening speech at a meeting of the Church's Executive Council that took place last week in Fort Worth, Texas, Curry addressed the January vote to suspend TEC, saying,"Many Primates made their feelings clear, and we were equally clear that we are a house of worship for all people, and we were clear that we are not going to change," the Episcopal News Service reported Friday.
"We were not voted off the island. The result was an expression of profound disagreement and deep displeasure but not a breaking of relationship. We are part of the Anglican Communion." 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.
