    President Trump said this morning that his administration is “stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values” in a rousing speech at the Values Voter Summit. In his first major speech to a socially conservative conference since his election, Trump addressed parental rights, religious liberty, the right to life, and the importance of God over government. “This morning, I am honored and thrilled to return” as the first sitting president, he said. Trump joked that he didn’t even need to ask attendees to vote for him, but he was still there. “Religious liberty is enshrined in the very First Amendment in...

    President Trump on Friday will become the first sitting United States president to speak at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit. "Values voters have waited eight years for a leader who puts America's mission first and respects the values that made America into a great nation,” Tony Perkins, the council’s president, said in a Tuesday statement.

    Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (R.) will be joined by President Donald Trump as a guest on his new television talk show's first episode. Huckabee confirmed Trump will be his guest when the show launches in October, according to an interview with the Atlantic. He further mentioned the strong support Trump received from Huckabee's audience – largely evangelical Christians – during the 2016 presidential election. "[Trump] will, in fact, be my guest on the first television show that I do," Huckabee said. The show is set to air on Trinity Broadcasting Network, an international Christian-based broadcast television network. The show's...

    American Thinker ^ | September 12, 2017 | Trevor Thomas
    The Never-Trumpers of every stripe still don’t get it. Ten months after his historic defeat of Hillary Clinton, those opposed to Donald Trump -- whether from the political right, left, or middle -- have yet to grasp why so many Americans -- especially evangelical Americans -- have embraced, or at least tolerate, the politics of the Man from Manhattan. As my wife (and chief editor) pointed out when I began this piece, “It’s really a no-brainer. There was no other option.” But nevertheless, to those dulled by their disdain for Mr. Trump, let me explain again our continued support for...

    The rising political star of Judge Roy Moore in Alabama is another surprise in a political season defined by the unexpected and the unconventional. On Aug. 15, Moore finished ahead of Senator Luther Strange in a primary election to pick the Republican candidate who will run in November's general election to fill the seat of former Senator Jeff Sessions. Sessions vacated the seat to become the nation's attorney general. Strange, who was Alabama's attorney general, was appointed by then-Governor Robert Bentley to temporarily fill Sessions' seat. Despite Strange being endorsed by President Trump, and perceived as the Republican Party favorite,...

    August 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — One of the authors of a widely-criticized essay that accused conservative Catholics and Evangelicals in the U.S. of instigating an “ecumenism of hate” is doubling down on his claims. Speaking with The Tablet earlier this week, Marcelo Figueroa said he was happy to see the “necessary” debate that resulted from an article he and papal confidant Fr. Antonio Spadaro S.J. published July 13 in La Civiltŕ Cattolica, a Jesuit-run journal overseen by the Vatican. In their essay, Figueroa and Spadaro decried what they called the “problematic fusion between … faith and politics” found in America....

    A group of conservative black pastors and intellectual leaders on Monday defended President Donald Trump amid criticism of his initial response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend. While some, like Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer, have claimed that there is a "direct line" between the events in Charlottesville and the choices Trump made in his 2016 presidential campaign, conservative African-American clergy members, scholars and political activists decried such an argument in a Monday press conference at the National Press Club.

    To say that people are gobsmacked by the overwhelming support by Christians for President Trump is an understatement. While I can understand why those from the party that booed God don’t get it, recent jabs by rightwing pundits are making it hard to differentiate between conservative purists and political snobs. A recent piece at Townhall.com by Bernard Goldberg shows he is baffled how “people of faith who supposedly admire civility and decency and detest abortion” could support Trump. National Review’s David French recently opined: “Moreover, the complete shock of Trump’s win (followed quickly by the Gorsuch nomination) forged a...

    At about the moment fired FBI Director James Comey was sitting down to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Steve Scheffler, a well-known Iowa social conservative activist, was waiting in a Washington hotel to hear President Trump speak to a crowd of about 700 at the annual meeting of the Faith & Freedom Coalition. I asked Scheffler if Iowa Republicans are worried about Trump and the Russia investigation. "I don't think so at all," he said. "I think it's all a lot of fluff and the Democrats are looking for some traction because they still can't get over the fact...

    The Democratic Party has a “religious illiteracy” problem that prevents them from reaching out to evangelicals, according to a former Democratic staffer. Michael Wear, a former Obama White House staffer, explained three reasons why the Democratic Party fails to reach out to evangelical voters or voters with different theologies. Wear, speaking with The Atlantic, pointed out that many young Democrats don’t know how to discuss or deal with religious topics. This “illiteracy” contributes to why Democrats fail to reach out to evangelicals, Wear explained. “It’s tied to the demographics of the country: More 20- and 30-year-olds are taking positions of...

WASHINGTON — The Reverend Franklin Graham isn’t sure which Scripture he’ll read at the January 20 inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.The evangelist and head of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse won’t get to make remarks at the event, but he will get to pick his own Bible passage, which could say a lot.Will...

    JuicyEcumenism ^ | 11/25/16 | Derryck Green
    A week after the election, the Huffington Post published a blog entry in which Progressive Christians suggested what like-minded Christians should do in order to “take back their faith.” Still reeling from the election in which Donald Trump was elected president, several progressive Christians pondered the necessary steps to draw a stronger contrast between their brand of kindhearted progressive Christianity, and the kind of conservative, evangelical Christianity that helped elect Donald Trump. The responses were predictably representative of left-wing Christianity, which centered on re-emphasizing social justice issues and identity politics as the “loving,” compassionate, anti-Trumpian counterpart to the hate-filled Christianity...

    “Clinton's loss at the hands of Donald Trump amounted to the most surprising outcome in the history of modern electoral politics.” So writes David Catanese for usnews.com (11/11/16).Many of the pollsters proved to be wrong after all. To his credit, Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia cried mea culpa, declaring: “We were wrong, ok? The entire punditry industry. The entire polling industry. The entire analyst industry. And I want to take this opportunity to take my fair share of the blame. We were wrong.”“Success,” noted John F. Kennedy after he took responsibility for the fiasco that was the Bay of Pigs, “has...

    I find it ironic that the same people who have mocked us for years as hypocrites, bigots, haters, homophobes, transphobes, and worse now tell us that we have lost our moral credibility by voting for Trump.It is true that there are Christian leaders in other nations who feel that we (meaning, in particular, white evangelicals) have compromised our moral witness by voting for Trump in such overwhelming numbers (81 percent of white evangelicals voted for him). And it is true that it is difficult to reconcile our historic mantra of “character matters” with a vote for Trump, unless we are...

    Evangelical Christians proved to be a driving force behind Donald Trump winning the 2016 presidential election, but some high-profile Christian entertainers have voiced their disagreement with fellow believers who supported the candidate. According to the Fox News exit polls, white evangelical voters helped seal the deal for President-elect Trump. Similarly, a study conducted by WPA Research and commissioned by Family Research Council, shows that 1 in 3 Hispanics and a significant number of African-Americans also voted for him as well. And that 59 percent of Trump voters were impacted by the Republican Party's pro-life and pro-religious liberty stand. For Yolanda...

    In a radio interview on Saturday, evangelist Franklin Graham said that Christians shouldn’t necessarily be concerned by Donald Trump’s history, because the GOP presidential candidate was one of “many people” who “gave their hearts to Christ” at his father Billy Graham’s 95th birthday party in 2013. Graham was the guest on Saturday’s episode of “The Christian Worldview,” a program hosted by David Wheaton. Wheaton asked Graham, “What do you say to the Christian who has hesitancy for Donald Trump?” “Well, first of all, three years ago this coming Monday my father celebrated his 95th birthday,” Graham replied. “Donald Trump was...
