Since Rev. Franklin Graham knows that many Christians feel that they don't have good options this presidential election season, he's advising that they support the candidate most likely to listen to their concerns.
"You're just going to have to ask yourself which of the two [presumptive nominees] do you think we as Christians will at least have a voice with?" the evangelist said to a crowd of about 5,000 assembled on the Capitol grounds in Olympia, Washington on Wednesday as part of his "Decision America" tour, according to The Seattle Times.
While Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse, has made it clear that he has "zero faith" in either the Democratic or Republican parties, he encouraged attendees to vote, despite their disdain for either of the presumptive major party presidential candidates. more >>

Sadie Robertson has teamed up with her older brother, John Luke, to present a new challenge to men.
The siblings and stars of the wildly popular A&E hit reality TV series "Duck Dynasty" appeared together on Sadie' YouTube channel last week where they explained why it's important to treat siblings with respect.
"That's my challenge to you, to all the guys who are watching," said John Luke. "To be a man, it starts with yourself. If you can't be a man to your own family, you're not going to be a man to those outside your family and future wife. It starts with your family." more >>
The murderous meltdown of troubled Christian mom Christy Sheats, who shot her two daughters to death and was later killed by police outside her Texas home last Friday, might have been triggered by her husband, Jason Sheats, telling her he wanted a divorce.
Jason Sheats felt his marriage to Christy Sheats had been spiraling downward since 2012, and on that Friday, his birthday, he told his wife he wanted a divorce, Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said, according to People magazine.
Nehls said Jason told investigators that he and his wife had been texting Friday when he was out. When he returned home that day he told her in their backyard that he wanted a divorce. more >>
A federal judge struck down Mississippi's religious conscience protections passed in response to last summer's U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide. The religious beliefs of clerks who refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples can't be accommodated, the judge ruled.
The ruling concerns Mississippi's House Bill 1523, which allows businesses to refuse services to gay couples based on religious objections and protects "sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions" of persons, religious organizations and private associations.

"I am basically stretching out and saying, you know what, I was a perpetrator of domestic violence. I was an abuser in more ways than one. But I believe that is how God is healing me," Fortune told CBN News' Efrem Graham in an interview published Tuesday.
"I was a perpetrator of domestic violence. I was an abuser. I thought domestic violence was just if you hit your wife, you slap your wife. But I found out there are 18 forms of abuse and only one of them is physical," he explained. more >>
