(1) “Teenagers lead 5 to Christ at Wendy’s restaurant” (Baptist Press)

“We are seeing a generation of students embrace the Gospel and accept the challenge to take the Gospel to Texas and to the ends of the earth,” Wagoner said. “There is a real harvest among teenagers today, and we believe that we can see a true movement of God when teenagers are challenged with the Gospel.”

(2) “Robert P. George Endorses Ted Cruz for President”

“In order to protect religious liberty, restore the right of the people to protect innocent human life in all stages and conditions and the institution of marriage as the union of husband and wife, and preserve other key constitutional values, we need a Republican president who has both the record and the judgment to nominate judges and justices who are faithful constitutionalists,” George continued. “Ted Cruz will not only devote political capital to ensuring that every nominee will protect our constitutional freedoms, but he will foster a culture, from the top down, that honors the Constitution – the one thing that, despite our differences, binds us all together as Americans.”

(3) “Actually, Most Evangelicals Don’t Vote Trump” (Christianity Today)

One plausible alternative narrative coming out of the March 15 primaries is that evangelicals actually slowed Trump’s advance in Missouri and Illinois and helped defeat him in Ohio. This conclusion is based on the fact that Trump performed worse among evangelicals than non-evangelicals in all three of those states. In addition, Kasich and Cruz each beat Trump among evangelicals by the same margin of eight points in both Ohio and Missouri, respectively.

(4) “Religious Disaffiliation and Choice Among American Millennials”, by Emma Green (The Atlantic)

In the United States, fewer young Americans identify as religious or attend regular services than members of any other living generation. People in their 20s and early 30s account for more than a third of the country’s “nones,” an academic nickname for the religiously disaffiliated. Religion is no longer the mode through which many people live their lives, and this relatively new state of affairs affects even those who remain religious: It opens up the possibility of beliefs and practices that are not simply inherited, but actively chosen.

(5) Franklin Graham: “Vote for the ‘Least Heathen’ Candidate” (PJ Media)

Just for fun: “$300 Million British Research Ship named ‘Boaty McBoatface’”
