    Itís one of the most sacrilegious acts a religious leader could perform, but itís happening again ó this time in Columbus, Ohio. Tonight, the the so-called Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice is planning a ďblessingĒ of a local abortion clinic. This appears to be a response to the closing ceremony of the 40 Days for Life campaign where pro-life advocates pray outside abortion facilities worldwide and offer practical pregnancy help and support for women. Originally, the blessing was supposed to take place at a Planned Parenthood abortion center. Although, the Planned Parenthood event has now been taken off their website,...

    Donald Trumpís new attorney general once said that judges should be Christian and proposed blocking non-religious people from judicial appointments. Matthew Whitaker, who was made acting attorney general on Wednesday after Trump fired Jeff Sessions, said judges needed a ďbiblical view of justiceĒ and questioned the judgment of secular lawyers. Whitaker made the remarks at a conservative forum in April 2014, where he appeared as a candidate for the Republican US Senate nomination in Iowa. Video clips of the event were saved by People For the American Way, a liberal campaign group. The Republican candidates were asked what justification they...

    The late Milton Berle used to say as a part of his comedy routine: "Since perestroika and glasnost, the Russians have changed their electoral system. A man went in to vote and was handed a sealed ballot. He started to tear it open. An election official said, 'What are you doing, Igor?" 'I'm opening the ballot. I want to see who I voted for,' said the man. The election official replied, 'Don't be foolish, you're not supposed to know. We vote secret ballot in this country.'" Berle's humor reminds us of a privilege which we often take for granted Ė...

    In the decades since Truman, Kennedy or Reagan, what happened to the genuine Christians in helping America to remain free? Long ago, from the past of a distant America, during another election year, a man named Ronald Reagan gave a speech that set him on a journey that would eventually lead to him becoming president of the United States. On October 27th, at the height of the presidential campaign of 1964, Ronald Reagan delivered a rousing speech at the GOP National Convention to support Barry Goldwaterís effort to receive the Republican Partyís nomination. While endorsing Goldwater, Reagan stressed his own...

    If Christian and conservative Americans do not sufficiently rouse themselves and get to the polls this time around, in order to make the crucial difference, nearly all 250 years of our existence will have been just a pitiful waste of time You probably donít remember Captain Arthur J. Jackson. At 19 he was ĎPFC Jacksoní, a kid Marine in World War IIís South Pacific Theatre on Peleliu Island. With his outfit pinned down by intense enemy fire and his brother Marines with their hands full just surviving, Jacksonís sergeant asked him if he could secure a point in a trench...

    CAIRO Ė Islamic militants on Friday ambushed two buses carrying Christian pilgrims on their way to a remote desert monastery south of the Egyptian capital of Cairo, killing seven and wounding up to 16, according to the Interior Ministry and security officials. Coptic Orthodox Church spokesman Boulos Halim said the death toll was likely to rise. Local church officials in Minya province where the attack took place put the death toll at 10, but the higher figure could not be confirmed. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which bore the hallmarks of Islamic militants who have for years...

    Two days after the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history, Vice President Pence bowed his head at a rally on Monday in Michigan as a religious leader who casts himself as a ďrabbiĒ offered a prayer for the victims in Pittsburgh. But the man who shared a stage with Pence, Loren Jacobs, preaches Messianic Judaism, a tradition central to Jews for Jesus, a group condemned by Jewish leaders as faux Judaism that seeks to promote Christian evangelism. The major Jewish denominations join the state of Israel in viewing followers of Messianic Judaism as Christian, not Jewish. His appearance drew...

    Bangkok ó Thailandís capital of Bangkok is a large, bustling, chaotic metropolis. The friendly, informal nation of Thailand draws visitors from around the world. Filling some backstreet neighborhoods are impoverished Pakistani Christians, stranded in the Thai capital while hoping to gain religious asylum elsewhere. They survive with support from my friends at Christian Freedom International, which aids victims of religious persecution, and other humanitarian groups. The problem reflects domestic failures in Pakistan, especially social and legal discrimination and persecution, often violent, against religious minorities. Islamabad is formally an American ally but in practice has constantly challenged U.S. interests. The domestic...

    War continues to ravage eastern Ukraine, where conflict erupted in April 2014 following Russiaís annexation of Crimea and the violent actions of pro-Russian separatists. Along with forcing at least 1.6 million people from their homes, the ongoing conflict has also resulted in the persecution of Protestant pastors and churches throughout the territories that are occupied by pro-Russian separatist groups. One such group is the Luhansk Peopleís Republic (LNR), which is located in Ukraineís Luhansk region and declared independence in May 2014. While the international community does not recognize the LNR as a legitimate state, this groupís totalitarian power is growing....

    Russian-backed rebels in Ukraine's Luhansk region have been cracking down on Protestant Christianity by raiding churches, dispersing worshipers, and preventing re-registration. There have been several instances of Protestant churches being raided in the past few months. Armed rebels raided a Baptist church in Brianka late in September, while the pastor of Krasny Luch Baptist church is facing possible punishment for allowing Sunday morning worship without registration. Twelve police officers shut down the Sunday morning meeting at Revival Baptist Church, telling the 25 worshipers gathered to go home. Several of them were questioned, however, while Pastor Dmitry Sirbu was forced to...

    American evangelicals are ‚Äúdeeply confused‚ÄĚ about some core doctrines of the Christian faith‚ÄĒand the fourth-century heretic Arius would be pleased, according to a new survey. For the third time, Ligonier Ministries has examined the State of Theology in the United States, conducted by LifeWay Research and based on interviews with 3,000 Americans. The survey, also conducted in 2014 and 2016, offers a detailed look at the favorite heresies of evangelicals and of Americans at large. Ligonier wanted to know what Americans ‚Äúbelieve about God, salvation, ethics, and the Bible.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúOverall, US adults appear to have a superficial attachment to well-known...

    On January 9, 2015, I wrote an article titled, "The Mayor of Atlanta Declares War on Religious Freedom." Now, more than three-and-a-half years later, sanity has prevailed and religious freedoms have been preserved. Atlanta must pay up. The case involved Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran, a man who had served the city of Atlanta for more than 30 years, working with distinction and without blemish. But when he self-published a 160 page book for use in his home church, gay activists rose up against him, demanding that he be fired. What was his crime? On his own time and on his...

    There is actually an organized group by that name, and they are mostly in public schools. "I have well over a thousand teachers engaging with the Teachers Who Pray network," Marilyn Rhames, the founder of that network told Rick Hess of the American Enterprise Insitute (AEI). "We have 131 school-based chapters, averaging about eight teachers per chapter in district, charter, private, and religious schools." "Most of our teachers work in traditional public schools, though you can say that we are 'agnostic' as to the types of schools we serve." Rhames had her own epiphany on 9/11 when she was working...

    DALLAS ó After church on a recent Sunday, Emily Mooney smiled as she told her girlfriends about her public act of rebellion. She had slapped a ďBeto for Senateíí sticker on her S.U.V. and driven it to her familyís evangelical church. But then, across the parking lot, deep in conservative, Bible-belt Texas, she spotted a sign of support: the same exact sticker endorsing Beto OíRourke, the Democrat who is challenging Senator Ted Cruz. ďI was like, who is it?Ē she exclaimed. ďWho in this church is doing this?Ē Listening to Ms. Mooneyís story, the four other evangelical moms standing around...
