NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — A volatile weather front rumbling out of the Plains States is expected to reach Tennessee Sunday.
The Storm Prediction Center says severe storms are possible this weekend in parts of the Southern Plains and Southeast.
The center, based in Norman, Okla., says damaging winds and some tornadoes are possible Saturday in an area stretching from Austin, Texas, to Memphis, Tenn. The area at risk also includes southern Illinois, southeastern Missouri and western Kentucky, along with much of Arkansas, northern Louisiana and southeast Oklahoma.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Middle Tennessee based Southern Baptist Convention is weighing in a federal judge's ruling that effectively decriminalizes polygamy.
The Rev. Russell Moore says the ruling puts vulnerable women and children at risk and also undermines the Bible's definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups said in the decision handed down Friday that a provision in Utah's bigamy law forbidding cohabitation with another person violated the First Amendment, which guarantees freedom of religion.
