Since the Supreme Court's infamous decision on June 26th to redefine marriage, our ideological opponents have openly mocked us. "Your side lost," they shout. "It's over! Just crawl into a corner and lick your wounds."
Even before the Supreme Court's decision, many conservative activists had already capitulated and thrown in the towel, urging us to consolidate our losses and move on. When it comes to homosexual issues, they assured us, the culture wars are over.
And that was prior to June 26th. more >>
The Ashley Madison hacking saga is still not over as a group of hackers called CynoSure Prime claimed to have decrypted the password of more than 11 million users of the cheating website.
CynoSure Prime's claims come after Ashley Madison has been put under the spotlight over a massive hacking incident that exposed the identity of its users. Despite the hack, the cheating website said its member population continued to increase, according to NYC Today.
CynoSure Prime is not the only entity claiming to have decrypted Ashley Madison passwords. Security firm Avast earlier said it has cracked more than 11,000 user passwords. However, the cheating website's developers said they used bcrypt encryption to ensure that the passwords of its more than 38 million subscribers will not be exposed, the report details. more >>
Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who was in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in defiance of a Supreme Court ruling, filed a motion Friday asking an appeals court to allow her to refuse to issue licenses when she returns to work Monday, until her case is settled.
In the motion filed with the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, the Rowan County clerk's attorneys urged that her entire office be allowed to abstain from issuing marriage licenses pending the court's decision on the case.
Her attorneys argued that U.S. District Judge David Bunning's initial order concerned only the couples who sued her. The judge violated Davis' right to due process during her appeal by including in his initial injunction any couple legally eligible to marry, the attorneys said, according to Reuters. more >>
Comedian Stephen Colbert, the new host of CBS' "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," interviewed Vice President Joe Biden Thursday night and the two men bonded over their faith in God and loss of loved ones. Colbert, despite poking fun at the Church occasionally, has always been open about his belief in God and Christian duty to serve others.
Colbert and Biden discussed various issues — the vice president could potentially run for president, but he's unsure if he's invested in the idea — but then they spoke about the death of his son, Maj. Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer in May. Colbert asked him if his Roman Catholic faith helped him get through the painful loss.
The vice president said he gets "an enormous sense of solace" from his belief in God. more >>
Perhaps one of the most difficult Scriptures dealing with divorce or separation is found in 1 Corinthians 7:10-11, "A wife must not leave her husband. But if she does leave him, let her remain single or else go back to him. And the husband must not leave the wife."
This clearly states that those who are divorced and/or separated, unless "scripturally released," should not remarry, but instead, seek restoration.
I believe that if this Scripture was fully taught and acknowledged, it would create more serious consideration before marriage, and would be a deterrent to divorce; there would be fewer divorces without cause and more reconciliations. Lack of regard for this Scripture has taken us to the other extreme — no fault divorce. more >>

The 18-year-old teen idol got teary-eyed upon finding a four-page prayer she wrote nearly two years ago while cleaning her old house on Thursday and she shared it with her 2 million followers.
