President Obama is expected to commemorate the United States' first national monument for the gay rights movement in New York City near a tavern that many claim is the birthplace of the American LGBT rights movement.
According to The Washington Post, sources close to the Obama administration say they envision building a monument on a piece of parkland that lies across the street from the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, a place that many believe is where the gay rights movement in America began with an uprising in 1969.
The Post reports that Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis and Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., will hold a public hearing on May 9 in New York City in order to get feedback on the proposal. more >>
America is in imminent danger due to its mockery of God and gross immorality, said the Rev. Franklin Graham in an op-ed this month for Decision magazine.
Graham warned in his commentary that the nation is on the precipice of spiritual disaster. " … America is in deep trouble and on the verge of total moral and spiritual collapse — unless God intervenes," he wrote.
The theologian asserted that there is a growing chasm between believers and those who no longer fear God. "Never before have I seen such a sharp rift in the moral and spiritual fabric of our country," he said. "The Cross of Christ has become the deep divide between a growing segment of our population that no longer fears God and those who follow Christ as Lord and Savior." more >>
Donald Trump is now the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, despite the efforts of his strongest opponents — evangelical Christians.
Trump has already been a disaster for the Republican Party, essentially dismantling the Reagan coalition and undermining its efforts to retain control of Congress. A Trump presidency would be a disaster for the entire nation, given that he is entirely unfit, in character and experience, to be president.
For those reasons, it's important to set straight the historical record — evangelicals led the opposition to Trump. more >>
An abortion activist from California says clinics are closing down around the country, including in blue states, because fewer women, largely millennials, are seeking abortions.
Shauna Heckert, the executive director of Women's Health Specialists of California, a group of six abortion clinics in northern California, said in an interview with FiveThirtyEight that "We are a dying breed."
Heckert was lamenting the closure of clinics in California, a liberal state that recevied an A+ grade from the pro-abortion group NARAL for requiring pregnancy centers in Sacramento to install signs promoiting abortion and for allowing girls younger than 18 to have an abortion without notifiying a parent or guardian. more >>
Even after Ted Cruz dropped his presidential bid Tuesday, some #NeverTrump conservatives believe it is "not inevitable" for the billionaire real estate mogul to win the Republican nomination while other #NeverTrump conservatives have begun talking about supporting a minor party or independent candidate.
After Trump won the Indiana Republican primary Tuesday and Cruz announced that he was leaving the race, Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus issued a call for all Republicans to embrace and unite behind Trump, the "presumptive GOP nominee," in order to help take down Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton in the general election.
The Rev. Franklin Graham has denounced a $36 million anti-smoking government campaign aimed at 18- to 24-year-olds that features coming out stories and drag queens called "This Free Life."
In a message posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday, Graham took issue with the Food and Drug Administration's initiative, arguing that it's an example of preferential treatment.
"Our Federal Food and Drug Administration is spending $36 million of taxpayer money on an advertising campaign featuring lesbians, drag queens, and transgender individuals to encourage the LGBT community to quit smoking," wrote Graham. "Doesn't everyone need to quit smoking, not just this group?" more >>
