  • Breaking: Lois Lerner Sued Christian Coalition In Largest FEC Action in History – Then Was Promoted

    05/22/2013 4:17:01 PM PDT · by hope · 159 replies
    Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. She lost her case. Lerner even asked one conservative during the case if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) These actions landed her at the IRS where she used the same tactics against conservatives and Christians – only on a much larger scale. 500 conservative and Christian groups were illegally targeted by the Obama IRS during her tenure. For twenty-seven months the Obama IRS refused to approve any Tea Party applications for tax-exempt...

    I live in a beautiful rural valley of 700 people in eastern Idaho and after I came to live here I found out that Utah isn't the only place that is fifty percent Mormon. As a compulsively inquisitive geo-political junkie I decided to look through the Book of Mormon so I could learn a little about the belief of my neighbors. As with any outsider looking into another's faith, I found many outlandish passages that would require faith to swallow, however, this is a characteristic that all religions share. What I have learned of my Mormon neighbors in the years...

    A New Grassroots Political Organization Makes Its Mark by Deal W. Hudson    11/06/09 The election results of November 2 were not merely the spontaneous reaction of Republicans to the bad economy and liberal excesses of the Obama administration. The four pro-life, conservative GOP candidates in Virginia and New Jersey were elected in a groundswell of religious and social conservatives, many of them independent voters who had voted for Obama only a year ago. A new grassroots organization played a major role in getting these voters to the polls -- the Faith & Freedom Coalition was founded by Ralph...

    Christian Coalition of America supports the continuation of the policies (known as "Net Neutrality") that have helped build and maintain a free, open and vibrant Internet. These policies have been in place since the beginning of the Internet and have ensured fairness for all people and points of view. "Net Neutrality" is an issue extremely important to America's grassroots organizations and to those Americans who want to ensure the cable and phone companies controlling access to the Internet will not discriminate based on content. If current "Net Neutrality" policies don't remain in effect, consumers could possibly have to pay additional...

    On the eve of primaries in Virginia and Washington, Republican presidential candidate John McCain ripped into Christian televangelists Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell yesterday as ``agents of intolerance'' who ``shame our faith, our party and our country.'' The blistering broadside -- issued in Virginia Beach, near the Christian Coalition's headquarters -- was a first for any Republican presidential candidate and a daring assault on conventional wisdom that has long held that Christian conservatives are vital to the GOP base. As McCain courted the Republican moderates, independents and Democrats he hopes will support him in today's GOP primaries, his rival, Texas...

    CLIVE, Iowa - Republican Fred Thompson launched a low-key pitch to evangelical activists, a constituency his strategists said remains available despite months of intense courting by his rivals for the GOP presidential nomination in the state's leadoff precinct caucuses. "This is his natural constituency," said strategist Rich Galen, who pointed to some polls ranking Thompson as high as second in Iowa, though he was opening only his second campaign visit through the state since he joined the race earlier in the month. Thompson mingled with activists at the annual dinner of the Iowa Christian Alliance, patiently shaking hands with most...

The Rev. Joel C. Hunter, who was scheduled to take office Jan. 1, said his departure was sparked by "just a basic philosophical difference. ... I saw an opportunity to really broaden the conversation and broaden the constituency. I'm really over this whole polarization thing."

They warn against counteracting that progress with a comprehensive immigration bill that conservatives consider amnesty. Jim Backlin, vice president of legislative affairs at the Christian Coalition, said the spate of "values" votes "really, really helps rejuvenate our base -- especially Bush vetoing the stem-cell bill."

The once-mighty Christian Coalition, founded 17 years ago by the Rev. Pat Robertson as the political fundraising and lobbying engine of the Christian right, is more than $2 million in debt, beset by creditors' lawsuits and struggling to hold on to some of its state chapters.

    ATLANTA — For once, Ralph Reed’s timing is off. So often in his 44 years, he has been in the right place at the right time. In 1989, when Pat Robertson was looking for a sharp, telegenic young operative to build a powerful national political organization for Christian conservatives, Reed was there – and the Christian Coalition of America was born. In 1997, with the coalition in the cross hairs of multiple federal investigations and beginning a long decline toward insolvency, Reed was out the door. In 2002, as chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, he got credit for a...

    A few years ago, a few moderate American Jewish leaders tried to allay Jewish fears that the Christian right was a threat. American Jews had it wrong, they said — former Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed, the Rev. Pat Robertson and their ilk really were quite nice, even open-minded fellows and strongly pro-Israel to boot. They were our friends.

Christians, in turn, organized nationwide prayer vigils and lobbying campaigns to support Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s vision of a greater Israel. Basking in the...

    A Christian Coalition of America ex-official's lawsuit for $123,500 in unpaid compensation has put nepotism of the coalition's president and the acrimonious divorce of her daughter center stage in Virginia courts. The coalition, once a powerful national voice for traditional family values founded by televangelist Pat Robertson, contests the claim filed by Tracy E. Ammons of Alexandria on grounds his compensation was funneled through a consulting company belonging to his ex-wife, now the coalition's vice president for communications.

    WASHINGTON - Democratic Party leaders said Wednesday they want to know why Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites) ended his presidential campaign with more than $15 million in the bank, money that could have helped Democratic candidates across the country.

"Democrats are questioning why he sat on so much money that could have helped him defeat George Bush (news - web sites) or helped down-ballot races, many of which could have gone our...
