Michigan GOP House Speaker Bolger "sold his soul" for $100,000 from so called "gay rights" advocates, pastors say Detroit.
A group of Black Christian pastors and ministers condemned what they called state Republican leaders' "dance with the devil" regarding legislation they said is discriminatory and would threaten religious freedom and women's privacy rights by adding so-called "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to the Elliott-Larson Act, the state's civil rights law.
The pastors said Gov. Rick Snyder and other Republicans risk losing the votes of Christian families in the upcoming 2014 general election "if they rush to hop in the same political bed with homosexual activists."
"Speaker Jase Bolger and other Republican hypocrites in Lansing are now dancing with the devil," stated Rev. James Crowder, Senior Pastor of St. Galilee Baptist Church- Detroit and President of the Westside Minister's Alliance said, "selling out traditional morality and our religious freedom in return for cash from the same 'gay' multimillionaires whose campaign funding they've condemned in past elections."
They cited Bolger's acceptance of a $50,000 PAC contribution last month from nationally prominent homosexual activist and Democratic Party financier Tim Gill of Denver.
Gill and billionaire Jan Stryker, also of Denver, funded the Democratic takeover of Colorado's legislature in 2006; Jan Stryker is the sister of homosexual billionaire Jon Stryker of Kalamazoo, who Michigan Republicans condemned in recent campaign cycles for spending millions of dollars in a similar attempt to defeat GOP legislative candidates here.

But apparently, those values are for sale if the price is right."

The U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision to strike down the "Obamacare" birth control mandate for closely held corporations with religious objections led some media organizations to make mythical claims that the decision will cause horrible outcomes. Here are three of those myths.

(CNSNews.com) – Within 24 hours of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that the Obama administration was wrong to impose its contraceptive and abortion drug regulation on small companies that oppose it on religious grounds, two federal courts granted emergency injunctions to seven non-profit groups that also oppose the rule.
Christian News Service/NICAEA poll finds 79% say biblical accuracy is important
OXFORD, Miss, June 10, 2014 |Christian News Service| --The so-called "Year of the Bible" has Christian moviegoers packing movie theaters across the country. Films like the SON OF GOD, MOMS NIGHT OUT and GOD'S NOT DEAD racked up a combined 218 million dollars in ticket sales in 2014.
A new survey, however, reveals the faithful won't be duped by movies that are Christian in name only.
According to a survey of 1200 respondents from Oxford-based Christian News Service and conducted by American Insights, 79% of those polled say "historical and biblical accuracy is important."
Two-thirds (66%) of all adults and 74% of Christians (who make up 63% of all survey respondents) are likely to see a movie related to God.
