    ANDERSON, South Carolina — Three presidential candidates came to Rep. Jeff Duncan’s Faith and Freedom BBQ here in South Carolina’s northwest corner on Monday, but only Sen. Ted Cruz brought a crowd with him.Cruz, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker were the three featured speakers at the conservative congressman’s annual cattle call, and there were supporters here backing each of the candidates. But most of the estimated 2,000 people seated around tables at the Anderson Civic Center came for Cruz, easily identifiable by the red “courageous conservative” shirts they wore.Winning the Feb. 27 primary in South Carolina,...

    Washington—Speaking to a gathering of religious conservatives Saturday night, Gov. Scott Walker spoke for several minutes about the shooting in Charleston, S.C., calling it a "racist" and "evil" act and asking for a moment of prayer for the "nine brothers and sisters in Christ who were taken on Wednesday."....."...."I think they're going to have a good healthy debate and should have that debate in South Carolina amongst officials at the state level," Walker told reporters after his dinner speech at the "Road to Majority" conference."I just think before I or anyone else weighs in on anything to do with policy,...

    ".....In contrast to a Republican summit in New Hampshire last week, Saturday’s event was largely devoid of attacks on the national Common Core education standards and overhauling entitlement programs. There were far fewer references to tax policy, trade or regulation. Instead, speakers gave full-throated endorsements of their religious beliefs and the role Christianity has played in shaping American values. Speaking at an evangelical church with a large wooden cross near the stage, would-be candidates detailed the role of faith in their life, quoted Biblical passages and gave personal anecdotes about the power of prayer. Mr. Jindal opened his speech by...

    Cedar Rapids, Iowa — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told about 200 Republicans here Friday that if he runs for president, he will campaign in Iowa up until November 2016, and not just through the crucial caucuses in the early part of the year. "We wouldn't be here just for the caucus we'd be back here for the full haul," he said. Walker said winning the Midwest will be crucial for Republicans. Walker is on a two-day swing through Iowa — home to the nation's first presidential contest — as he prepares to launch an almost-certain bid to take the White...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is joining the parade of ambitious Republicans courting religious conservatives as the early jockeying for the next presidential contest intensifies. Christie was to deliver his first major address to an evangelical conference on Friday, the second day of the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s annual meeting, which brings hundreds of social conservative leaders to Washington. He’ll be joined on a packed agenda that also includes the GOP’s 2012 vice presidential nominee, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, and tea party firebrand Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. […] This group of potential presidential contenders largely represents a wing of the...

    On the Fourth of July, in the United States of America we celebrate freedom. In particular we celebrate freedom from tyranny, and a government that is not representative; freedom from unchecked power and unaccountable sovereigns.Distorted and faithless notions - Yet, as Christians we cannot overlook that there are ways of understanding freedom today that are distorted, exaggerated and detached from a proper context. Many modern concepts of freedom treat freedom as something that faith limits, not enhances.Alexis De Tocqueville said Liberty cannot be established without morality, nor morality without faith. In America today we are seeing the erosion of all...

    Faith and Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed is vigorously refuting a published report that he sought to help the Boy Scouts of America persuade Christian leaders to back a proposal to allow gays to become scouts. Current BSA policy is to bar membership to “open or avowed homosexuals.” But a proposal to be voted on this month, supported by some leading BSA officials, would permit gays to become members while maintaining a ban on gay adult volunteers. …

    Go to Cspan.org and watch the 3 GOP candidates speak at the Wisconsin Faith and Freedom Rally. Do you agree with me that Newt Gingrich knocked out of the park, while Santorum continues with his whining how he is better than Romney and Romney tells stories about senior citizens who cannot retire? Believe me, we may be in trouble with either Santorum or Romney. Newt would beat Obama in a landslide.
