Franklin Graham labels Trump opposition ‘demonic’; Rick Perry labels Trump ‘chosen one’

The Reverend Franklin Graham described opposition to President Donald Trump as being “demonic” in a recent interview with author and radio personality Eric Metaxas.

When asked about opposition to Trump, Graham described the phenomenon as “almost a demonic power,” which led Metaxas to interject and say that he did not believe the term “almost” should be included.

“It is a spiritual battle,” agreed Graham, who then touted the Trump administration’s handling of the economy, saying that the nation has “an economy that is just screaming forward.”

Retired NBA star Lamar Odom is using Covenant Eyes to battle porn addiction

Two-time NBA champion Lamar Odom says that he is relying on the accountability software Covenant Eyes to help him battle his pornography addiction.

In a video filmed by the Michigan-based company, the 40-year-old former NBA Sixth Man of the Year and “Dancing with the Stars” contestant revealed that decades of porn addiction hurt relationships and brought him great pain.

“In the NBA, if you late, they just fine you,” Odom said in the video. “I think about all the times I was in my hotel room [on] game day, and I had to get one more last in. So, I chose to be late for the bus just to watch a porno scene. It’s kind of crazy.” 

According to Covenant Eyes, it was in 2019 that Odom began his journey to give up porn. To do so, he installed Covenant Eyes on his mobile and computer devices.

Landen Hoffman, the 5-year-old boy who was thrown from a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in Minnesota is now walking "perfectly," and is giving credit to angels who caught him and to the love of Jesus.

In an update on their GoFundMe page Friday, friends of the family of Landen Hoffman noted that the young boy's condition continues to improve.

In addition to recovering physically, the 5-year-old boy is also in good spirits.

"He gets out of the car every morning happy and blows kisses all the way in! He's a strong, happy boy," the latest GoFundMe update added, speaking of the boy's demeanor.

"When his mommy asks him if she can look at his wound or asks how he's doing, he always responds with 'Mom, I’m healed, you don't need to ask me anymore.' Landen loves life and Jesus!"

Landen now reportedly tells people when they get hurt: "Don't worry, I fell off a cliff, but Angels caught me and Jesus loves me, so I'm ok and you will be too!'"

Majority of Americans favor religious freedom, even if views are ‘discriminatory,’ new study says

A majority of Americans strongly support religious freedom even if the views expressed are deemed “discriminatory,” according to a new study from the Becket Fund for Religious Freedom.

The new data shows that a majority of Americans support freedom to practice one’s religion at work or in life even if it creates an imposition or inconvenience for others. 

“The central finding from this first year’s Index is that broad public support for religious freedom has survived the culture wars. After years of religious freedom being pushed to the center of polarizing debates, rather than reveal a partisan 50-50 split, at 67[%], the Index scored in the upper third on the scale of favorability toward robust religious freedom protections,” Becket said in an announcement to The Christian Post.
