Today's question is: "Should Christians attend the gay marriage ceremonies of their loved ones?"
This is a really tough question, and it's not one that I'm going to pretend even for a second to have the universal 'right' answer to. Off the top of my head, I can think of at least two ways that a devout Christian could be motivated by seemingly good intentions to attend their loved one's gay marriage ceremony. So I really do understand the thought processes of those who do. more >>
Over 100,000 Americans have expressed their support for a U.S. Navy chaplain who's facing a possible career-ending discipline after he voiced his Christian beliefs on homosexuality and premarital sex during a counseling session with sailors.
In early 2014, a small group of sailors asked for a private counseling session with Navy Chaplain Wes Modder, and asked about the spiritual nature of certain types of personal conduct.
Modder, who has served over 15 years as a Navy chaplain after serving four years in the Marines, answered according to his Pentecostal faith. However, the group of sailors did not agree with Modder's Christian views and later complained. more >>
Gospel singer and "Mary Mary" reality television star Tina Campbell recently acknowledged her ability to overcome marital problems, including her own "crazy" and "violent" behavior.
A recent episode of "Mary Mary" revealed that Campbell had riddled husband Teddy Campbell's car with bullets in a fit of anger over his multiple extra-marital affairs. Days after the footage aired, Campbell addressed her behavior during her marital woes. The singer, who is one half of the Gospel duo Mary Mary along with her sister Erica, spoke with New York Gospel radio station WLIB about "angry," "crazy" and "violent" reactions before turning to God for direction on her marriage.
"What men think is impossible, with God, all things are possible," Tina explained. "My situation was busted, every other week I finding about someone else - that was devastating. I can sit here and smile because I just want to be happy because it's a choice. I did mad, I did frustrated, I did angry, I did bitter, I did crazy, I did violent, I did all of that, and I remained miserable. But when I turned to God and made a conscious effort to pursue forgiving and letting go, that's where I found my hope." more >>

The Supreme Court is slated to rule on the subject of same-sex "marriage" this term. Here are four questions I want to ask same-sex marriage supporters:
1) If the Supreme Court says that it is okay for a man to marry a man and a woman to marry a woman, then how can they stop there?
Once they open Pandora's Box, how can they say that polygamy is unconstitutional? The Supreme Court already ruled on that. Utah, a state founded by Mormons, could not be accepted in the Union until there was the promise that they would not practice polygamy, Reynolds v. United States, 1878. more >>
