(Terry Dickson/Florida Times-Union) BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Kenneth Adkins sits in jail and ticks off the hours ... days ... dreaming about reinventing himself. Perhaps he'll go to work and advocate for coeds who attend historically black colleges in the Atlanta area, or so he said on Day 216 behind bars.

He was a preacher who led an infamous march against same-sex marriage and denounced homosexuality, but he also settled a lawsuit by four young men who said he...

    Another woman with a painful pregnancy story defended her late-term abortion this week in reaction to Donald Trump’s remarks at the last presidential debate. During the Oct. 19 debate, Trump exposed the brutal nature of late-term abortions and the extremism of pro-abortion challenger Hillary Clinton, who supports late-term and partial-birth abortions up until birth. “I think it’s terrible if you go with what Hillary is saying in the ninth month you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Now you can say that that’s...

    The Rev. Samuel Rodriguez urged his fellow Hispanics in America to consider Hillary Clinton’s radical pro-abortion position before voting in November. Rodriguez, a strong pro-life advocate in the Hispanic American community and the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, emailed supporters Monday to explain how extreme Clinton’s abortion policies are, the Christian Post reports. “Latinos are pro-life. Latinos, whether they be Evangelical or Catholic, must never sacrifice truth on the altar of political expediency,” Rodriguez wrote. “By asking for our support, Sec. Clinton is asking us to sacrifice our most cherished values. She is asking us to defy...

Pastor Tiffanie Irwin, her brother Joseph Irwin and mother-and-son church members Linda and David Morey are the last of nine people to be convicted in the brutal attack that investigators say took place after the victims discussed leaving the congregation.

    The pastor of West Hill United Church has found herself in the middle of a firestorm ever since she came out publicly as a disbeliever, raising the question of just how far this big Christian tent can stretch. Progressive Christian churches that have adopted inclusivity as their defining virtue find themselves ill-equipped to oust a member, even when that member has overtly rejected the fundamental tenets of the faith.
