NEW YORK (AP) – One of the largest evangelical college ministries in the U.S. has asked any staff members who support same-sex relationships to quit, a move critics call a purge and supporter laud as an affirmation of true Christianity.

The move to scrub the gay adoption ban language is part of a larger adoption bill that provides adoption benefits to state employees and incentive payments to community-based care groups. Of the 20 pages of bill language, just a single line applies to deleting the ban on adoption by gays.

Macklemore isn’t afraid to tell you he was scared when he saw some of the destinations for his upcoming tour.

Idaho. Montana. Texas.

None of those places in the Heartland seemed like they’d be receptive to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ left-leaning, socially conscious message. A hostile reception seemed more likely – especially for the lightning-rod song “Same Love,” which offers support for the LGBT community.
