On two separate occasion this week, influential evangelicals Dr. Ben Carson, Kirk Cameron and entertainer Carman answered questions about the advantages and disadvantages of marijuana.
First, during a Facebook live interactive event on Tuesday, Carson, a former Republican presidential candidate, teamed up with Cameron to discuss why it's important for evangelical Christians to vote, especially in the upcoming presidential election on Nov. 8. During the Q&A with callers, the men were asked about their views on the use of marijuana, and the push to make the drug legal in all 50 states.
Tweleve minutes into the Q&A, a man phoned in and asked for advice on how Christians should react to marijuana advocates pushing for its legalization, such as in his home state of Arkansas. more >>

According to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign financial report, the billionaire spent $8.4 million for digital consulting and advertising in July alone. This unprecedented amount is four times bigger than his June report that reflected only $1.6 million. Trump's report for the last two months also showed that the candidate has spent most of his funds on digital content. This is also three times more than what the real estate mogul is spending on expensive television ads.

According to reports, it looks like the Republican candidate is putting together last minute digital campaign projects to hopefully boost his campaign. However, Republican and Democratic digital experts said that doing so will not just cost more for any candidate but could also net less than a strategy that was devised earlier. Strategists also mentioned that last-minute projects may also lead to disappointing results. more >>
God did not tell popular televangelist Creflo Dollar to endorse Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, the preacher says, and he has no plans to do so.
Dollar, a prominent black preacher based in Georgia who is the founder of World Changers Church International shot down a viral report that began circulating on social media in May that he was throwing his clout behind the brash New York City billionaire.

Any claims or statements claiming otherwise are false. This rumor originated on a satirical website and is 100% untrue," Dollar said in a statement on his Facebook page Thursday. more >>
