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 >>
The Institute on Family Studies released a study Thursday which found that couples who attend worship services together or when only the man attends services are happier than couples in which neither partner or only the woman attends.
Titled "Better Together: Religious Attendance, Gender, and Relationship Quality," the study was authored by W. Bradford Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia and Nicholas H. Wolfinger, professor in the Department of Family and Consumer Studies and Adjunct Professor of Sociology at the University of Utah.
"Seventy-eight percent of men and women in couples who regularly go to services together, or where only the man attends regularly, report that they are 'very happy' or 'extremely happy,' after adjusting for differences in race, age, education, marital status, region, and other factors," read the study. 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 >>
Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has accused the atheistic "Sunday Assembly" movement of hypocritically following its own religious dogma, while at the same time "ripping off" the best aspects about going to church.
"This philosophy — that everyone can make their own decisions and that no one should be told what to believe or where to get their rules — is a form of religious dogma," Ham wrote in an AiG blog post Wednesday.
"So, really, they aren't avoiding what they say they are. They have a dogma designed to suit their own religion. But as the devil does so many times, he takes what God ordains and perverts it. These 'nones' have ripped off marriage (by promoting gay 'marriage') and now 'ripped off the best stuff of church.'" more >>
