"Minority Report" actress Meagan Good is speaking out about the importance of encouraging young women to abstain from sex in a way that's seemingly not religious.
"I speak to young women because I think a lot of the images that are out there now teach women that they need to be a certain kind of way in order to get attention or be considered valuable. ... I do encourage them to wait but I'm not preachy or religious," Good, 34, said in a Philly.com. report.
"I feel like if you have a better sense of self and you love yourself the right person will wait for you. ... For my marriage ... there was a solid, 'I could spend the rest of my life with you and you could be my partner on this entire journey' — and I respect you and I love you — and then there's the icing on the cake." more >>
Hundreds of Christian conservatives gathered in the blistering heat in Nashville on Constitution Day Thursday, to rally for religious freedom in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's same-sex marriage ruling and called on the state to uphold its definition of marriage as being a union between one man and one woman.
As a crowd of over 400 gathered for the "Stand in the Gap for Truth" rally hosted by the Tennessee Pastors Network outside the state's Legislative Plaza, a number of issues, from the Iran deal to same-sex marriage, were discussed by prominent Evangelicals and state lawmakers.
Among the speakers who participated in the event was the husband of jailed Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, Joe Davis, the father of presidential candidate Ted Cruz, Rafael, Bishop E.W. Jackson and former Southern Baptists Convention Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission president Dr. Richard Land. more >>

Madonna's brother, Christopher Ciccone, who is openly gay, has backed Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who was recently jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, saying it is part of her religious freedom to deny the licenses.
"The county clerk … deserves about as much support as you would give her if she were a Muslim [woman] who insisted on covering her face and refused not only gay marriages licenses, but divorce, accusations of rape and driving a car without your man's approval," Ciccone, who directs music videos, wrote on his Facebook page Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A judge had ordered Davis, the Rowan County clerk, to issue marriage licenses, but she cited "God's authority" as the reason to defy the June Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage across the nation. The judge ordered her arrest, and warned that any other clerk who refuses to issue licenses could also be found in contempt of court. more >>
