Texas megachurch leader Robert Jeffress warned that the Republican Party will face a massive boycott if they do not nominate current frontrunner Donald Trump.

In an interview on the Fox Business channel earlier this week, the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas argued that Cruz and Kasich's strategy was "distasteful." more >>
In a strongly-worded critique on the controversial North Carolina transgender law, Christian NFL tight end Benjamin Watson asserted that those who "blur" the reality of genitalia are rejecting God's design.
Watson, a 12-year NFL veteran who signed a contract with the Baltimore Ravens this March, took to Facebook over the weekend to issue his thoughts regarding the recently passed North Carolina law that prohibits local governments from forcing businesses and institutions to allow transgender individuals to use bathrooms designated for the opposite biological sex.
Unlike many others who have analyzed the North Carolina law, Watson, a strong Christian who frequently comments on current events, explained that he did his part to read the law in its entirety before issuing his opinion of it. more >>

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin will decide this week whether to sign into law a bill that would strip abortion-providing doctors of their medical licenses, effectively ban the practice in the state.
LifeNews reported that the bill passed the Oklahoma House on Thursday of last week, after it had already passed the state Senate in March. The legislation states that doctors who perform abortions, with the exception being cases to save the mother's life, will be charged with "unprofessional conduct" and will be barred from renewing their medical licenses.
Fallin, who is a Republican but has not yet indicated whether she will sign the law or not, is facing big pressure from abortion-providing groups, such as Planned Parenthood. Oklahoma state Sen. Nathan Dahm, who sponsored the bill, said, however, that its purpose is to protect the lives of unborn babies. more >>

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump's pro-life stance is being called into question after he said he would "absolutely" change the Republican Party's platform on abortion to include the exceptions of rape, incest and to save the mother's life.
Trump was on NBC's "Today" show on Thursday and was asked if he would make any changes to the GOP's platform on abortion, as the current party platform is silent when it comes to exceptions.
"Yes, I would. Absolutely, for the three exceptions, I would," the billionaire real estate Mogul responded. He was then pressed on whether he would make the exception for the "health" of the mother. more >>
