Is there a way to argue well? You may be thinking, "Wait. Couples are not supposed to argue. After all, isn't everyday in marriage like an episode of The Bachelor, with helicopter rides, dinner on the beach, and your partner swooning over every word you say?" Unfortunately, reality TV is far from reality because in real life there are real couples that have very real arguments. In fact, couples who say they don't argue typically fall into one of three categories:
1. They're lying.
2. There is one strongly dominant person and one extremely passive person. The reason they don't argue is one is a bully, and the other won't ever speak up for him/herself. more >>
The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship's liberal theology on marriage is partly to blame for Republican Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal's veto of legislation protecting pastors and faith-based institutions from government backlash to opposition over same-sex marriage, Al Mohler argued.
Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler opined in a podcast Tuesday that a "moral revolution" happening throughout the United States is the reason states like Georgia, North Carolina and Indiana get so much heat from external actors anytime they try to pass religious freedom legislation that liberals decry as discriminatory to the LGBT community.
Despite the discrimination labels, Mohler pointed out that Georgia's H.B. 757, also known as the "Pastor Protection Act," was "mirrored precisely in terms of intention" with the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act that was passed in 1993 with overwhelming support in both the House and Senate and was later signed by Democratic President Bill Clinton. more >>
There's just one thing that's worse than "no religion" for you and your family: a little religion!
In Ezekiel 5, the prophet laments that not only had Jerusalem become wicked and idolatrous — she had become an embarrassment to even her pagan, Baal-worshiping neighbors.
Well, professing Christians today may find themselves in a similarly embarrassing spot. When it comes to marriage and family, the nation is doing poorly. But it turns out one group is doing worse than the whole: Christians who don't go to church. more >>

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal's decision to veto a religious freedom bill was a "craven capitulation," "cowardly" and discriminatory toward Christians, according to social conservatives.

"The View" host and actress Candace Cameron-Bure came out of the gate swinging in defense of the Christian values of Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Monday.
Bure took umbrage with comments by "The View" co-host Michelle Collins, who said she hoped recent allegations by the National Enquirer that Cruz has had multiple affairs during his marriage to his wife, Heidi, are true because she wants to see the senator fall.
"I, for one, hope it is true … " said Collins. "But then, more so than that, just to see and show what a hypocrite he would be — if it is true, because it's alleged. But he's such a guy [who is] about family values and he lives by this kind of crazy moral code. So I love to watch people like that fall." more >>
