    05.06.16 2:06 AM ET No Weddings, Funerals in North Korea So Kim Jong Un Can ‘Party’ No work breaks, no travel, and no food (again).

The once-in-a-generation event—the last was held in 1980—is supposed to celebrate Kim’s rule, but in recent months observers have been seeing signs of a breakdown of...

Jillian has Down syndrome. As her parents watched her grow, they heard people say that Jillian would never play sports or go to college or get married.

    The Iranian government is denying an Internet rumor that Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s son was the best man at the wedding of Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter. The denial by the Iranian-controlled Fars News Agency comes hot on the heels of allegations over the weekend on the website of former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) that purported a "frightening" link between the negotiators of the nuclear deal. According to West’s website, Zarif’s son was the best man at the 2009 wedding of Kerry’s daughter Dr. Vanessa Kerry to Dr. Brian Nahed. Nahed is of Iranian descent but was born...

    A high profile marriage of an Iranian American doctor to actress Gina Davis was already reported (Link). But news now reveals that John Kerry's son-in-law is also an Iranian-American doctor. The news comes out shortly after Kerry faced staunch opposition from right wing pro-Israeli Republicans to his nomination as Secretary of State. In 2009 Dr. Vanessa Bradford Kerry, John Kerry’s younger daughter by his first wife, married Dr. Brian (Behrooz) Vala Nahed, an Iranian-American physician.

    **SNIP** Zarif is the current minister of foreign affairs in the Rouhani administration and has held various significant diplomatic and cabinet posts since the 1990s. He was Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations. Secretary Kerry and Zarif first met over a decade ago at a dinner party hosted by George Soros at his Manhattan penthouse. What a surprise. I have to say, connecting the dots gets more and more frightening. But it gets even worse. Guess who was the best man at the 2009 wedding between Kerry’s daughter Vanessa and Behrouz Vala Nahed? Javad Zarif’s son.

And so it is unsurprising that a picture showing a wedding guest proposing to his girlfriend right in front of the bride and groom at their reception has been met with outrage and ridicule online. The picture, uploaded to Reddit this week by an unnamed user who has since deleted their account, has been viewed a staggering 1.36million times.

They are headhunting Christians who refuse their business on moral grounds by slapping them with lawsuits or "human rights" complaints. Fascists would appreciate these tactics.

    We think Cheryl Cole’s missed a trick with her quickie wedding on Macaroni Beach in Mustique. Just look at what she could have had – her very own McWedding (Drive Thru or marry in). Yes, McDonald’s has the answer for all those normcore brides out there. Well, at least the ones willing to travel to Hong Kong. The fast food chain has been slowly expanding its wedding party program since 2011 and now boasts 11 restaurants that double up as budget wedding venues, all in Hong Kong. And not only can you have the wedding ceremony there, they’ll also host...

    I'VE ALWAYS taken a dim view of wedding gift registries, on the principle that greed is bad and greed masquerading as courtesy is worse. But I relented, just for a moment, when I read about the public's reaction after learning that Jon Meis, the Seattle Pacific University student who disarmed a killer during a school shooting, would be getting married this month. Grateful strangers not only bought up every item for which Meis and his fiancée had registered, but also donated $50,000 to pay for their honeymoon and other expenses. The upwelling of generosity was heartwarming. Yet gift registries in...

    A Tennessee woman has fired back at critics for the unusual way she included her baby daughter in her recent wedding. Shona Carter-Brooks, of Jackson, Tenn., secured her 1-month-old daughter on the train of her wedding dress as she walked down the aisle. Carter Brooks, who married Johnathan Brooks at the Elam Baptist Church in Ripley, Tenn., last weekend, walked down the aisle with her daughter dragging behind wrapped in the enormous amount of material on her David's Bridal dress by Vera Wang, according to her Facebook page. A company spokeswoman told The News it was not actually a Vera...
  • Workaround for Christian Businesses

    As I’ve mentioned before, the laws requiring Christians to do things like bake wedding cakes or do photography for homosexual weddings are corporate laws. That’s how these laws are implemented - corporations have privileges granted by the State for the benefit of the State, as the State sees fit. So if Christians sue, what they have to argue before the Court is how it benefits the State to allow their incorporated business to not do work for homosexual marriage. That’s the legal reality. That’s not my opinion, that’s what the Courts are actually ruling on. Given that, there is a...
  • How I Predict Divorce Based on the Wedding Cake

    As a pastor who regularly performs weddings, I can tell that some couples are more likely to divorce than others. It’s not most evident in pre-marital counseling or private comments made before the service. I can’t see it as the vows are said or rings exchanged. It’s not even in the kiss. As a pastor, I can predict the likelihood of divorce based on how the wedding cake is exchanged. I’ve been performing wedding ceremonies since I was 18. One of the first ceremonies I performed was pretty routine. Everything went without a hitch until it came time for the...

    It's wedding season! More Americans get married in June than in other months. Why June? The timing seems pretty arbitrary if you look up its history. Some claim it's because June was named after Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage. Others say it's because in the 1500s, people took their annual bath in May, which meant they probably smelled best around this time of year. (Be thankful for modern times.) A third and more plausible explanation: If a bride got pregnant in June, she wouldn't be too big during summer to help with growing and harvesting food. Whatever the reason...
