    PARIS -- In the suburbs of Paris, a Jewish family gathers to read the Torah. But soon they will be gone. They're part of a growing number of French Jews and leaving their country because the future simply looks too dangerous.  In January, demonstrators in Paris shouted, "We don't want Jews" and gave the Nazi salute. It was chilling reminder of France's World War II past when Jews were deported to concentration camps.  Before the war, European Jews waited too long to leave and ended up trapped. French Jews don't want to make the same mistake again.'Time to Leave'CBN...

    Southern Baptist leader defends international adoption from 700 Club comments.It's not unusual for comments by Pat Robertson to provoke heated reactions. But this time, what's unusual is the subject matter: adoption. Robertson recently expressed affirmation on The 700 Club for men who don't want to date women who have children adopted from foreign countries, notes Associated Baptist Press. His comments -- including, "You don’t have to take on somebody else’s problems" -- provoked a strong rebuke from Russell Moore, a Southern Baptist Theological Seminary dean who has become a prominent advocate for adoption. "This is not just a statement we...

    In a recent broadcast of The 700 Club, a woman sent in a question about a man who wouldn’t marry her because she has children who were adopted internationally. If they were her “own” biological children, he would have no problem, she said. But because they were adopted, he saw too much risk. Host Pat Robertson’s female co-host bristled and said he was acting like a “dog.” Robertson disagreed. He said the man “didn’t want to take on a United Nations,” and that, after all, you never know about adopted children; they might have brain damage and “grow up weird.”I...
  • Ecumenical: Christian QB's Stats Evoke Bible Verse [Tebow and John 3:16]

    Christian Quarterback's Stats Evoke Bible Verse DENVER - Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has accidentally, but perhaps providentially, made John 3:16 the most searched item on Google. Not only did Tebow -- the outspoken son of Christian missionaries -- produce an upset victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers with his touchdown pass in overtime, but that pass left him with 316 yards. He averaged 31.6 yards per toss, and CBS's TV rating peaked at 31.6 during the game. All those 3-16s had flocks of fans searching the Internet, where they found the Bible verse where Jesus says: "For God so loved...

    Famed Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson had some tough words this morning for Republican presidential candidates and their supporters. While speaking on the air on CBN’s “The 700 Club,” he said that GOP candidates are being pushed into positions that they won’t be able to successfully defend in the 2012 general election. This comment is especially intriguing because Robertson, himself, was once a GOP presidential contender. Also, the famous religious broadcaster recently claimed that he will no longer be making political endorsements. One wonders if he has dissatisfaction with the GOP or if his views have moderated over time — or,...

    On today’s The 700 Club, during a segment about the devastation, suffering and humanitarian effort that is needed in Haiti, Dr. Robertson also spoke about Haiti’s history. His comments were based on the widely-discussed 1791 slave rebellion led by Boukman Dutty at Bois Caiman, where the slaves allegedly made a famous pact with the devil in exchange for victory over the French. This history, combined with the horrible state of the country, has led countless scholars and religious figures over the centuries to believe the country is cursed.

One thing we do know is that Obama is a Christian, not a Muslim.

    CBN ^ | 10-19-08 | Brody
    Brody had a 20 minute interview with Gov. Palin- but on the CBN website, it's broken down into 5 segments: no cable interviews, anger at the rallies, marriage amendment, Obama/Ayers. I post here one segment. Click the site- there's video and transcripts on the other segments. ***************************************************** Brody: There have been some shots taken at you…regarding your Christian faith…The Pentecostal stuff, the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Do you want to clear up exactly what you believe in and so that the record can be set straight a little bit? Because there have been some editorials and others taking shots...
  • A Look at Obama's Chicago Past

    CBNNews.com - In the race for president, Sen. Barack Obama labels himself as an agent for change, saying he's been a reformer for years. But some in his political hometown of Chicago are saying "not so fast." While Obama grew up in Hawaii and Indonesia, his political birthplace is Chicago - a city known for its machine politics and Illinois - a state known nationally for government corruption. Political experts say Obama has not been able to bring about fundamental reform in Illinois. In fact, he's allied with some of the state's most notorious politicos. A recent McCain TV ad...
  • Palin Slams Obama on Abortion

    “In this same spirit, as defenders of the culture of life, John McCain and I believe in the goodness and potential of every innocent life. I believe the truest measure of any society is how it treats those who are least able to defend and speak for themselves. And who is more vulnerable, or more innocent, than a child? When I learned that my son Trig would have special needs, I had to prepare my heart for the challenges to come. At first I was scared, and Todd and I had to ask for strength and understanding. But I can...

    CBN's David Brody is on the phone with CNN right now getting himself drummed out of the conservative movement. Why? Well, he's on peddling what happened at a private meeting at the Council For National Policy with regards to Palin. This is a huge no-no, guests are invited under the condition that meetings remain private to keep conversations candid and open. I've attended CNP and I know darn well to never talk about what went on. Brody has just breached the biggest rule of CNP and burned a number of bridges along the way. He's putting his own self-promotion and...

    Wow. Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is John McCain's pick for Vice-President. Folks, this is s close to a game changer as you can get. Let me give you some instant reaction. I can tell you that The Brody File has been talking to multiple sources in the conservative Evangelical community and the reaction has been EXTREMELY POSITIVE. As a matter of fact, I am told that when conservative leaders heard the news this morning at a meeting at the Council for National Policy, one attendee told me that there is "nothing but elation. People are giddy. They are energized and...

    In 2001, Senator Barack Obama was the only member of the Illinois senate to speak against a bill that would have recognized premature abortion survivors as “persons.” The bill was in response to a Chicago-area hospital that was leaving such babies to die. Obama voted “present” on the bill after denouncing it. It passed the state Senate but died in a state house committee. In 2003, a similar bill came before Obama’s health committee. He voted against it. But this time, the legislation was slightly different. This latter version was identical to the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which by...

    Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is harshly accusing a pro-life group of "lying" about his record on abortion as a Illinois state senator, despite compelling evidence on the pro-lifers' side. Obama made the aggressive attack when Christian Broadcasting Network Senior National Correspondent David Brody asked Obama about documentation the National Right to Life Committee recently obtained of a 2003 committee vote on “born alive” legislation that would have required medical officials to give life-saving care to babies who survived abortion. Obama has said again and again he voted against versions of that bill as an Illinois state senator because it...

    Milling around the media room after the Saddleback Forum, I learned that while John McCain was onstage talking with Rick Warren, Barack Obama was sitting down backstage to an interview with David Brody of CBN News. Brody took the opportunity to press Obama on the issue of his record of opposition to legally protecting babies who are born alive after an abortion. Obama became visibly irritated and replied to Brody: “I hate to say that people are lying, but here’s a situation where folks are lying.” Interesting choice of words. A little projection maybe? Perhaps Obama had lying about abortion...
