Christian Artist Appeals Decision Forcing Her to Promote Same-Sex Marriage 

Attorneys representing a Christian website designer and graphic artist filed an appeal Friday against a Colorado law that could force her to promote messages about same-sex marriage that conflict with her religious beliefs.
 
The case dates back to 2016 when Alliance Defending Freedom sued the state over its application of an anti-discrimination law – the same law involving Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips, whose case made it to the U.S. Supreme Court, where Phillips won.

Gospel Star Kirk Franklin Boycotts Dove Awards for Cutting Atatiana Jefferson Comments 

Gospel star Kirk Franklin said he will boycott the Gospel Music Association’s annual Dove Awards after comments he made about Atatiana Jefferson — a 28-year-old black woman killed in her home by a white police officer — were cut from this year’s broadcast.
 
The Dove Awards took place October 15th, but aired October 20th on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. While accepting the award for Gospel Artist of the Year, Franklin paid tribute to Jefferson, who was killed while at home with her eight-year-old nephew after a Forth Worth, Texas, police officer fired a bullet through the window while responding to a call from a neighbor (the officer, Aaron Y. Dean, has since resigned and been arrested and charged with murder).

Kanye West Unashamed For Christ In Latest Interview; Says ‘Jesus Is Born’ Christmas Album Coming 

Kanye West is almost ready to release Jesus is King, his gospel-inspired new album. We say ‘almost’ ready, because it keeps getting hit with delays. Although he’s been hosting public listening sessions of the unfinished record around the USA, the album missed its scheduled release date at midnight today (October 25) as West was still tweaking the final mixes.
 
That hasn’t stopped him engaging in a promotional blitz, though. Besides putting out an IMAX film about the album’s creation, he also invited Beats 1’s Zane Lowe over to his ranch in Cody, Wyoming for a wide-ranging interview about the album. Bearing in mind that this is Kanye West we’re talking about, it understandably touched on a lot of things that weren’t the album.
