JUSTIN, Tex. (BNC) by Joe Slater — Several hours have passed since the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) announced its 5-4 majority decision declaring that homosexual marriage is a right guaranteed by the Constitution. While hardly surprising, the decision is distressing to me, as well as to millions of other people who accept the Bible as the inspired word of God, and who, therefore, uphold marriage as God designed it (one man, one woman, for life – see Genesis 1).

HOOVER, Ala. (BNC) by Chuck Webster — Some of the stuff going on in our country frightens me, and from looking at social media and some of my favorite blogs, I don’t think I’m alone.
The number of Christians in America is decreasing. There’s racial unrest in Baltimore (and everywhere, it seems). Nine justices in our nation’s capital are contemplating a verdict that may redefine marriage. Laws are being passed that make it illegal to act on your religious faith.
Scary times, indeed. Continue reading “Will Christianity survive?”
BUDA, Tex. (BNC) by Dewayne Bryant — If recent films are a good indicator, religious and Bible-themed movies tend to do well at the box office. Two recent examples are “God’s Not Dead” and “Noah.” Polls demonstrate that Americans view accuracy as an important consideration when watching these kinds of movies.
Unfortunately, the new film “Exodus: Gods and Kings” will no doubt become notorious for its inaccuracies in bringing the story of Moses and the exodus to the big screen. Continue reading “Let my people go! See some other movie instead of ‘Exodus’”
SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (BNC) — Watch the video of last night’s live panel on “The Christian and Politics,” featuring discussion of the Houston mayor’s broad subpoena of documents from pastors. The Gospel Broadcasting Network video begins in the middle of a phone conversation with a Christian professor of law.
(BNc) by Dan Mayfield — Life has boundaries. Factions in the world and society divide over where they should be, but all people agree there are boundaries.
The problems Christians face have to do with the world changing into a secular society disconnected from traditional biblical values. What is wrong in the Bible is right in the secular society.
This is not to say there aren’t areas of agreement between secular society and Christianity, but there are huge differences that have become flash points of disagreement. Continue reading “Secular world suffers consequences of changing spiritual boundaries”
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (BNc) — Observers of American culture have identified in Mozilla CEO Brenden Eich’s sudden resignation signs of growing power on the part of homosexual activists.
Mozilla is the parent company of the popular Firefox browser.
After two weeks as the new CEO, Eich stepped down after homosexuals inside of Mozilla threatened revolt, because of a contribution he had made in 2008 to defeat a same-sex marriage law.
The move has been widely interpreted as a sign of heightened power and activism of same-sex marriage advocates that threatens, by their intolerance, freedom of speech for Americans. Continue reading “Why should browser flap concern Christians? The end of free speech, perhaps?”
