  • Former Christianity Today Editor Praises Tony Campolo’s Call for ‘Full Acceptance’ of Homosexuals

    A former editor of a prominent Christian publication is praising Tony Campolo after he announced this week that he has decided to endorse and speak out for the inclusion of open homosexuals in the Body of Christ—a move that is generating concern among Christians nationwide. “God bless Tony Campolo,” wrote retired Christianity Today editor David Neff on Facebook this week. “He is acting in good faith and is, I think, on the right track.” Campolo’s wife, Peggy, is a homosexual activist and believes that the Church should be accepting of same-sex “marriage.” He explained that his wife is one of...
  • Evangelical leader: Vote for Hillary Clinton, she’ll cut abortion rate in half

    A national evangelical Christian leader has written that his fellow believers should vote for Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, because she will radically reduce the abortion rate. Hillary, in whose campaign abortion industry lobbyists play a conspicuous role, favors abortion-on-demand throughout pregnancy. Yet Tony Campolo believes a second Clinton presidency will halve the number of abortions nationwide. “Hillary Clinton is one of the few candidates on the political stage who has a plan for cutting the abortion rate in America by at least 50 percent,” Campolo, a sociology professor emeritus at Eastern University, wrote in a debate on Religion News...

    This is what he (Tony Campolo) has to say about Hillary Clinton and why Christians should vote for her: “Some of my Evangelical friends raise questions about her views on abortion. But Hillary Clinton is one of the few candidates on the political stage who has a plan for cutting the abortion rate in America by at least 50 percent. I know Hillary Clinton to be a committed Christian. As a teenager, Hillary’s religious beliefs were heavily impacted by hearing a sermon by Martin Luther King, Jr. The youth pastor of her Methodist church mentored her through her teenage years...

    (RNS) Tony Campolo, a progressive evangelical leader who counseled President Bill Clinton through the Monica Lewinsky scandal, announced Tuesday (Jan. 14) that the organization he founded nearly 40 years ago will close on June 30. Campolo, 78, plans to retire with the closure of the Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education, but he will continue to write and speak, with nearly 200 engagements scheduled for 2014. He said his health is fine and he wants to write one more book on how Christianity fits with the social sciences.
  • Iran's Ahmadinejad talks to US Christians

    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday said Iran bore no hatred towards the United States as he held talks with American Christians in a rare official contact with visitors from Tehran's arch enemy. State television showed Ahmadinejad meeting with a dozen American representatives from various Christian orders who are in Iran for a week-long visit to promote peace and dialogue between the foes. "The Iranian nation does not have any feeling of hatred and opposition towards the American people and we believe that all people are respectful and given the common grounds people have, they could achieve peace and justice," Ahmadinejad...

    Whenever I grab a book to read and sit on the couch, I can always count on my dog to come over and jump up and settle next to me. Just about the time I kick back to relax she lays her head on my lap and gives me that look. Oh how good she is at letting me know what she wants. It is something that will inevitably lull her into a calm relaxed state of mind until I think she has fallen asleep, that is, until I stop pampering her and pick my book to start reading....

    Many supporters of the principle of separation of church and state say that the Intelligent Design Theory of creation ought not to be taught in public schools because that it contains a religious bias. They say that Intelligent Design proponents suggest that the evolutionary development of life was not the result of natural selection, as Charles Darwin suggested, but was somehow given purposeful direction and, by implication, was guided by God. Arguing in favour of what they believe is a non-prejudicial science, they contend that children in public schools ought to be taught Darwin’s explanation of how the human race...

    The Waltonian ^ | 10/2/08 | Campolo, Tony
    In books and speeches, I have often said that God is neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I have contended that to make either party "The God Party" is idolatrous. This does not mean that Christians should abandon political activism. It has been said that all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing. Consequently, I have long called for Christians to be involved in both political parties, striving to be the "leaven" that permeates both parties with biblically-based judgments and values derived from Christian beliefs. Taking my own advice, this year I became...

    Left-wing evangelist Tony Campolo, one of Bill Clinton’s post-Monica counselors, has declared that America’s ostensibly aggressive war policies against Muslims are inhibiting the spread of the Gospel. And he rather uncharitably lambasted American evangelicals who do not share his leftist perspective as “jingoistic” and motivated by oil “lust.”

    The Christian Chronicle ^ | J. Wayne Newland
    With the first few presidential primaries and caucuses only months away, Christians considering the relationship of faith, politics, patriotism and nationalism may find Campolo’s new book instructive. Many members of Churches of Christ have aligned with the religious right followers of Falwell, Robertson and Dobson on faith-related issues and conservative politics. Yet, our people have rarely joined them in evangelistic or benevolent efforts for fear of fellowshipping error or being yoked with “unbelievers.” Historically, we have eschewed even being grouped with Protestants, fundamentalists or evangelicals. Of further irony is that libraries of our preachers and churches would be sparse, indeed,...

    HH: From Eastern University, I’m Hugh Hewitt. Thanks for listening to the Hugh Hewitt Show. I’m here joined by a wonderful crowd of Eastern University students, faculty and friends, as well as by two people whom I greatly admire, and I cannot imagine two better people to debate, since they come at it from very different perspectives, the role of America in the world. Please join me in welcoming Frank Gaffney from the Center For Security Policy and Eastern University’s own Tony Campolo.

    Left-wing evangelist Tony Campolo and leftist Jewish activist Michael Lerner are organizing a new manifesto calling for the U.S. to “repent” and “apologize” for the Iraq war, eagerly collecting funds to publish the appeal in major newspapers across the nation. Called “An Ethical Way to End the War in Iraq,” Campolo and Lerner want America to give up in Iraq immediately and pay reparations for her crimes. So far, they have collected the signatures of such enlightened luminaries as Harvard's Cornel West, radical nun Joan Chittester, Glen Stassen at Fuller Seminary, and former Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) moderator Rick Ufford Chase....
  • Why the Christian left is not

    01/12/2007 11:43:16 PM PST · by JohnHuang2 · 47 replies · 1,226+ views ^ | 1/12/07 | Kevin McCullough
    For the Christian left to claim connection to true Christianity is to deny its leftist tendencies, and for them to claim connection to the aims of the political left is to deny its Christianity. They seem to share more anger for fellow Christians than they do toward evil. And this reality, while unexplainable, is nevertheless present and growing in influence. This week I entertained one of the main spokesmen for the movement, Dr. Tony Campolo. I asked him directly why his new book, "Letters to a Young Evangelical," seemed to have such great disdain for the Christian right. He responded,...

    The Problem with Red Letter Christianity by Mitch Lewis There is a move among some self-described “progressive evangelicals” to identify themselves as “red-letter Christians” - describing themselves as Christians particularly devoted to the words of Jesus (which are printed in red in many editions of the Bible). Here are a few samples and I’ll let them speak for themselves.Red Letter Christians home page at Sojourners.netRed Letter Christians by Jim WallisWhat’s a ‘Red-Letter Christian’? by Tony CampoloBirth of the Red-Letter Christian Movement at Sojourners.netRed Letter Christian BloggersOn Being a Red Letter Christian at MainstreamBaptistCount Me In as a Red Letter Christian...

    (AgapePress) - Note to self: Here lies a lesson on how really bad ideas get started. Tony Campolo, eager to promote the Evangelical Left's newest movement -- "Red-Letter Christianity" -- writes that the label comes from ... "A secular Jewish Country-and-Western disc jockey in Nashville, Tennessee. During a radio interview he was conducting with Jim Wallis, he happened to say, 'So, you're one of those Red-Letter Christians -- you know -- who's really into those verses in the New Testament that are in red letters!' Jim answered, 'That's right!' And with that answer, he spoke for all of us. By...

    “Baptist leaders urged Christians to fight terrorism with dinner conversation,” a press statement from the BWA read. “Terrorism will wane when believers reach out to disenfranchised individuals in a spirit of love and peace…… Meanwhile, another top Congress speaker, Tony Campolo, told attendants that young people have the “primary responsibility” to step-up in the battle against terror, since those drawn to terrorist networks are often times disenfranchised youth. Therefore, he said, Christian youth should reach out “over pizza” to those who feel isolated…….
  • Tony Campolo: Misinformed, bad theology

    Tony Campolo, one of American Christianity's most well-known evangelists, is doing the Gospel of Jesus Christ a grave disservice with misinformation, unscriptural political analysis and dangerously bad theology. In a speech in Canada recently, Campolo gave a rambling presentation explaining the absolute necessity of creating a new Palestinian state to win over the Muslim world. If Campolo really believes what he said in this speech, he is ignorant of history. If he doesn't believe what he said, he is a politically motivated liar misusing the Gospel to further a hopelessly evil political agenda. You decide for yourself. He claims firstly...

    The Age ^ | July 2, 2004 | Barney Zwartz
    Tony Campolo challenged the most powerful man in the world - and then became his spiritual adviser. Barney Zwartz reports. Bill Clinton is the most biblically literate President to have occupied the Oval Office, Tony Campolo says categorically. "He studies Scripture; he's into the Bible. He's a regular church-goer; he grew up in the church. He takes the faith very seriously, which, of course, makes the Lewinsky scandal all the more horrendous." It's an unusual claim, but Campolo is well placed to make it. The controversial sociologist theologian was Clinton's spiritual adviser throughout most of his presidency. The job broke...

    CLAYTON -- In this conservative community, 60 or 70 of the faithful wind their way down Warwoman Road on Sundays, past the Rabun County Bank and Andy's Market, to attend tiny St. James Episcopal Church. My husband and I have loved the little steepled church on the hill ever since we went to our first Christmas Eve service there and were told to just jingle our car keys since we didn't bring a bell for the midnight chorus of "Joy to the World." With patches of goldenrod heralding fall, about two dozen parishioners gathered recently for a Sunday school discussion...
