The American Baptist College, a Christian college in Nashville, Tennessee, is under fire from a group of pastors for inviting a married lesbian bishop to speak at the institution's 58th Garnett-Nabrit Lecture Series this month.
Bishop Yvette Flunder of the City of Refuge United Church of Christ, who's married to her same-sex partner Shirley Miller, is featured as one of the main speakers set to make an address during the lecture series on March 18, according to a schedule of events published by the college.
Speaking at a recent screening of the upcoming film "Little Boy" in New York, former Disney Channel actor David Henrie explained how working on the movie helped "save his life" by snapping him out of an "agnostic" rut in his life and led him back to Christianity.
The 25-year-old Henrie, who starred in the popular Disney show "Wizards of Waverly Place," plays London Busbee, the older brother of the main character Pepper Busbee, or the "little boy." The plot of the movie is that 7-year-old Pepper is desperately trying to find a way to bring his father back home from World War II and tries to do everything in his power through faith to make that happen.
The Christian entertainment news site Breathecast reports that Henrie told the audience at the Feb. 26 screening that when he first read the script, he was so moved that he sat in a coffee house and wept. Henrie recalled that he told his agent "this is the best script I have ever read, please get me in for this." more >>
