The National Religious Broadcasters affirmed traditional marriage and condemned any sexual act outside that union, including pornography and homosexuality, in a new version of their Statement of Faith adopted Tuesday.
"NRB believes that sexual acts outside marriage are prohibited because they are sinful. Consequently, NRB members must resist and refrain from any and all sexual acts outside marriage — including but not limited to adultery, fornication, incest, zoophilia, pornography, prostitution, voyeurism, pedophilia, exhibitionism, sodomy, polygamy, polyamory, sologamy, or same-sex sexual acts," notes the NRB, a non-partisan international association of committed broadcasters and Christian communicators in the new statement of faith shared with The Christian Post Wednesday.
Highlighting Scripture as the guide for the amendments made to the organization's statement of faith, the NRB notes that the changes are required to give clarity in the current political-legal landscape. more >>
Is Ben Higgins' Christian faith being downplayed on "The Bachelor"?
Even though this season's star of ABC's popular reality TV dating show has conveyed his Christian beliefs in his private life, on social media and even in a blog for People magazine, one fan contends the show is concealing far too much of his faith.
"Athough you would never know it if you consume 'The Bachelor' only through the show itself, he [Higgins] seems to be an evangelical Christian," writes one Slate blog contributor. "On the show itself, spirituality gets only the most fleeting, veiled references and dog whistles." more >>
Republican presidential candidate John Kasich said that social conservatives need to "move on" from the issue of gay marriage and Christian wedding vendors shouldn't deny service to same-sex weddings.
During a Monday appearance at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, the Ohio governor was not afraid to touch on the issue of marriage, an issue that has not been heavily discussed throughout the 2016 election cycle by other Republican candidates.
Although Kasich said that he, as an Anglican, believes that marriage is a union between one man and one woman, he again repeated the claim that it is time for conservatives to drop the subject and move on to more important issues. more >>

Ciara, the 30-year-old who has a son with previous fiance and rapper Future, insisted the initial conversation about abstinence was not a hard one to have.
One year for Christmas, I gave bikes to my little twin boys. For months I saved money so that I could bless them with these gifts. After they unwrapped the presents on Christmas morning, I took them outside so they could learn how to ride for the first time. They were so excited!
And then … I did the "unthinkable." I made some rules.
Rule #1: They were only allowed to ride their bikes around a small area of the apartment complex. Rule #2: Under no circumstances were they allowed to ride down the stairs. more >>
