In speaking as a guest on a national syndicated Christian radio show this week, Texas Southern Baptist megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress explained how society's growing acceptance of homosexuality and attack against those who express their biblical view of marriage is paving the path for the Antichrist.
While on the The Janet Mefferd show on Monday, Jeffress, who is the pastor at First Baptist Church in Dallas and is also a Fox News contributor, said that there are a few key indicators in the world today that make him believe that the second coming of Jesus Christ and the coming of the Antichrist is nearing.
Jeffress said that indicators like the rise of radical Islam, the increase in the persecution of Christians across the world, and growing acceptance of gay marriage and "moral disorder" are like "labor pains" signaling the second coming of Jesus. more >>
President Barack Obama intentionally misled voters when he stated that he supported traditional marriage during his 2008 presidential election campaign, former Obama advisor David Axelrod claims in his new book.
Obama supported same-sex marriage when he was an Illinois state senate candidate in 1996, but claimed he opposed same-sex marriage when he ran for president in 2008.
"I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman," Obama told pastor Rick Warren at Saddleback Church in 2008, adding that he supports civil unions for same-sex couples. more >>
Hozier, an Irish singer with the hit song "Take Me to Church" that was performed at the Grammys on Sunday, recently spoke out against the Catholic Church in an interview with Vanity Fair.
The magazine asked Hozier about his recent hit that includes themes about sexuality and tolerance along with his frustration with the Catholic Church, and he unleashed some harsh criticism for the Church during the interview. He also said he wouldn't mind getting in trouble with the Vatican over his hit song.
"I would love to get in trouble with the Catholic Church. I'm not religious myself, but my issue is with the organization. It's an organization of men — it's not about faith. I don't want the song to be considered an attack against faith, but when you have people feeling ashamed of themselves because of sexual orientation, or put themselves at risk by people telling them what [not] to put on the end of their penis, well, you wouldn't tolerate that from a company or government," he said. more >>
A federal appeals court in Michigan upheld the firing of a former spiritual director at InterVarsity Christian Fellowship last Thursday because she failed to save her marriage.

A traditional marriage group urged the residents of Alabama to oppose the legalization of gay marriage in that state following a ruling from a federal judge.
Last month U.S. District Judge Callie V. S. Granade ruled the state's ban on gay marriage, passed with over 80 percent of the vote in 2006, unconstitutional.
The National Organization for Marriage denounced Alabama's issuing of marriage licenses to gay couples on Monday. more >>
How should we respond if the Supreme Court rules to redefine marriage in June? What do we do if same-sex "marriage" becomes the law of the land?
We respond just as we did when Roe v. Wade was passed in 1973, devoting ourselves all the more to stand for what is right and to be agents of positive change.
Perhaps it would help if we asked the reverse question: What would gay activists do if, quite unexpectedly, the Supreme Court rules against same-sex "marriage," even invalidating all same-sex ceremonies performed to date? more >>
