In most cases, first dances at a wedding are happy and very emotional at the same time. Kyle and Nicole wanted to spice it up a bit by adding their dance that everyone can clap along to.
It was very special for all those who attending and were able to watch on the internet. They worked very hard together to come up with this amazing dance. At two minutes into the video, something happens that no one ever expected. The brides dad gets up on the dance floor and shocks everyone with a dance of his own. When he cuts-in, you can't do anything but smile!
This was a very unique surprise that gives all the guests who agreed to attend the wedding a special treat. Feel free to SHARE this idea with others and spread the JOY! more >>
As the U.S. Supreme Court readies to hear arguments in favor of same-sex marriage on Tuesday, April 28, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, urged pastors across America to preach and pray against it because "marriage was God's idea, and He will preserve it, with or without us."
"We know that marriage is intended to be sacred, beautiful, and nourishing. If you do not influence your congregation's understanding of marriage, who will fill the void? Hollywood? Divorce courts?" asked Cruz in a letter sent to tens of thousands of pastors highlighted by CBN News.
"Prayer moves our God to intervene in history. Prayer softens our hearts and brings us into alignment with the heart of God. The church has not shared the truth about marriage well: it is time to repent and commit ourselves to courage on this front," said Cruz. more >>

As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear oral arguments next Tuesday on whether states will continue to be free to define marriage for their own citizens, a number of amicus briefs have been filed arguing that the U.S. Constitution does not guarantee a fundamental right to same-sex marriage.
Heritage Foundation Senior Fellow Ryan Anderson and prominent attorney and constitutional law expert Gene Schaerr recently co-authored their own amicus brief that asserts that the U.S. Constitution does not require states to redefine marriage to allow for two individuals of the same gender to get married.
Speaking at a Heritage Foundation discussion on Monday, Anderson and Schaerr, a former associate counsel to President George H.W. Bush, explained their brief in detail and offered more reasons as to why the Supreme Court should not force a decision in favor of same-sex marriage on all 50 states to uphold as law. more >>
In 2009, a group of leaders from a wide spectrum of religious traditions came together to sign the Manhattan Declaration, thereby publicly uniting around three core Judeo-Christian values of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and marriage. Inspired by the late Chuck Colson, and co-drafted by Professors Robbie George and Timothy George, the Manhattan Declaration anticipated what lay head, ending with these sobering words: "We will fully and ungrudgingly render to Caesar what is Caesar's. But under no circumstances will we render to Caesar what is God's."
Five years later, the future is here, and we are facing a fundamental conflict between the laws of Caesar and the laws of God.

Republican 2016 presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio from Florida, said Sunday that he does not believe homosexuality is a choice but "something that people are born with." He also said he believes marriage should be "between one man and one woman" while insisting "it's not that I'm against gay marriage."

In an interview with Fusion's Jorge Ramos last week, Rubio, who is a strong Catholic also explained that despite his religious beliefs he would attend a gay wedding if it was for a family member or a friend. more >>
