After Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump's tax returns and IRS audit were a major topic during Thursday night's presidential debate, the billionaire real estate mogul said after the debate that the IRS may be targeting him because he is a "strong Christian."
Trump's tax returns became a major news story this week after 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney called for Trump to release his tax returns and suggested that they may contain a "bombshell."
During the CNN debate in Houston, Trump explained that he was not going to release his tax returns because he is currently under audit by the IRS and added that he has been audited by the agency for the last 10 to 12 years. more >>

God, by His design, has laid out the best way — mentally, physically and emotionally — to have a sexual relationship, and that doesn't include homosexuality and gay marriage, according to Alan Robertson, a former pastor and eldest son of reality TV star Phil Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" fame.
"I've had the same conversation with folks who have same-sex attraction as I have with men and women who are living together. I tell them all the same thing: God has a design and a plan for your life, and this is what He's laid out as the best way to have a sexual relationship on Earth, biblically."
He continued, "I put it in the context that anything outside of what I believe the Bible teaches about the design for marriage and the design for a husband and wife to have a sexual relationship that's exclusive to them [isn't biblical, and isn't part of God's design]." more >>
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will reportedly decide on a 2016 presidential bid in coming weeks and a close ally says the idea of a third run is being driven by his Mormon faith.
Despite having lost the 2008 Republican nomination to Arizona Senator John McCain and the 2012 presidential election to Barack Obama, Romney remains hopeful about his future in politics. Veteran journalist Larry King confirmed over the weekend that the former Mormon pastor is seriously considering another bid at the presidency.
WASHINGTON — The Republican advantage among white working class voters increased 15 percentage points from 2012 to 2014, which delivered Republicans their big wins in the 2014 midterms, according to a report by the Public Religion Research Institute.
Although the Democratic Party has historically appealed to the working class vote, PRRI's 2014 post-election survey released Tuesday at the Brookings Institute found that 61 percent of white working class voters voted for Republican candidates, which is up from the 55 percent of the white working class voters who voted for Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election.
While six percentage points more white working class voters said they voted for Republicans in 2014, the percentage of working class voters who voted for Democratic candidates decreased by nine percent from the 2012 presidential election. The survey found that 26 percent of white working class voters voted for Democratic candidates in 2014. In 2012, 35 percent of white working class voters said they voted for Democrat president Barack Obama. more >>
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which has about 15 million followers worldwide, recently blasted the "magic underwear" moniker ascribed by non-Mormons to the sacred undergarments worn by the faithful as "inaccurate" and "offensive."
"Many faithful Latter-day Saints wear a garment under their clothing that has deep religious significance. Similar in design to ordinary modest underclothing, it comes in two pieces and is usually referred to as the 'temple garment,'" explained a video posted to the Mormon Newsroom channel on YouTube on the weekend.
"Some people incorrectly refer to temple garments as magical or 'magic underwear.' These words are not only inaccurate but also offensive to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There is nothing magical or mystical about temple garments, and church members ask for the same degree of respect and sensitivity that would be afforded to any other faith by people of goodwill," it continued. more >>
