  • Christian Conservative speaks out against Ted Cruz

    Melanie M wrote: I am a Christian Conservative and have very strong opinions of political stances. The republican party is not an entity it is people, no people no party so they better get their crap together. Christian is not what you do it is who you are and though we may disagree on scripture, doctrine or interpretation no one has the right to question another persons salvation experience or their Christianity. I find Ted Cruz dishonest and manipulative in this race. His Christian roots untraceable and his rhetoric unstable. Donald Trump may not always meet the mark as politically...

    Chelsea Clinton says she left the pro-life Baptist church at age six because they talked about abortion in Sunday Chelsea Clinton claims she left a Baptist church as a child because they started talking about abortion in Sunday when she was just six years old. Chelsea made the comment at a recent fundraiser for her mother Hillary Clinton in an attempt to address evangelicals who question her mother's faith in God and secular voters who say she's too religious, according to The New York Post. A Democrat shared Chelsea's speech with a Post reporter who did not specify where the...

    I kid you not, Hillary "Jezebel" Clinton claims that her beliefs are aligned with the Ten Commandments and that she is a Christian. I guess I'm not surprised, given that another Saul Alinsky disciple by the name of Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah also claimed to be a Christian. During a town hall meeting in Knoxville, Iowa, a young woman asked Clinton, "I'm just curious how you would say that your beliefs align with the Ten Commandments, and if that's something that's important to you." (Watch ridiculous video at link) "I am a person of faith," declared Clinton. "I am...

    The Rev. Franklin Graham quitting the Republican Party poses a significant blow to the GOP's 2016 White House aspirations, especially if other evangelical pastors follow suit and their millions-plus congregations stay away from the polls. Graham suggested earlier this week that the last straw was congressional Republicans funding Planned Parenthood in the recently passed, $1.8 trillion tax-and-spending package, despite revelations about the group harvesting fetal tissue. However, he made clear Wednesday night that the funding was only part of the reason he left the GOP to become an independent. "It's not just that," Graham said on Fox News' "On the...
  • King: Jesus depictions today further promote a white supremacist agenda

    To be clear, Christmas in the United States, despite the name, has very little to do with Jesus Christ and everything to do with consumerism and gift giving. However, side by side with Easter, it’s also the time when we are most likely to see depictions of Jesus used as tools of white supremacy. In Atlanta, I see them everywhere I go. Jesus as a blond-haired, blue-eyed baby and his blue-eyed supermodel mother are ubiquitous and done without even a slight hint of humor. It's preposterous. It would truly be no different from depicting Christopher Columbus as a dark-skinned African...

    In August 1980, Republican presidential candidate Ronald Reagan stood before a crowd of 15,000 evangelicals in Dallas, Texas, and declared: “I know you can’t endorse me. But...I want you to know that I endorse you.” Shortly thereafter, various leaders of what would become known as the religious right would endorse Reagan, and their support would help make him the 40th president of the United States. In December 2015, several dozen religious right leaders gathered yet again—this time in secret, at a Sheraton hotel outside Washington, D.C.—to determine which candidate would earn their endorsement. After four rounds of balloting, one candidate...

The Christian writer said evangelicals shouldn't support The Donald primarily because Trump mocked the disabled NYT reporter Serge Kovaleski. That, for said writer, was a holy deal breaker. He also pointed out that Trump was cocky, cheeky and braggadocious and that, my dear brethren, was...

After all, despite the fact that American Christians are the most entitled and privileged people in the history of the planet, many feel persecuted.One of the more endearing customs of many of our small town Iowa churches on Sunday morning is story time.

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Hillary Rodham Clinton says much of the nation's political debate lacks the compassion for the poor she learned in Sunday school. At a rally in Iowa, the Democratic presidential hopeful portrayed herself as a champion for struggling Americans, in contrast to the alleged "mean spiritedness" of others. Without naming names, Clinton asked, "Did they not go and hear the same lessons I did in Sunday school? Did they not sing the same hymns?" She said those who lack compassion make her wonder, "Did they never hear, 'there but for the grace of God go I?'"

According to the Christian Post, the representatives included, Sheila Jackson Lee, R-Texas, Emanuel Cleaver, D-Missouri, and James Clyburn, D-South Carolina. In the past, these lawmakers have opposed pro- life legislation, and at the orientation a few of them argued against cutting funding of Planned Parenthood.

Masterfully — as He always did — Jesus answers the scholars with a simple, yet profound statement: “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her” (John 8:7, NIV).Recently, Newsweek featured a cover article on the Bible in which author Kurt Eichenwald — not a Biblical scholar...

    Abortionist Curtis Boyd, who has been committing abortions since before they were legalized in 1973, was featured Friday by UK-based publication The Guardian in a piece on American abortionists. The tone of the piece is one of shock and dismay that America has grown more pro-life, rather than more accepting of the tenets of Roe v. Wade, since 1973. To drive this point home, the piece includes this startling infographic from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute displaying the radical pro-life shift in opinion as evidenced by legislative restrictions on abortion. For The Guardian and for abortionists like Boyd Americas lack of...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business has frequently employed a clergy council to attempt to justify abortion to Christians and the religious community. In June, LifeNews exposed how the abortion giant issued a pastoral letter claiming the Bible justifies abortions. Planned Parenthood issued a “pastoral letter” through one of its political lobbying arms—the Planned Parenthood Clergy Advocacy Board—saying that “many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion,” that “abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures,” that “there are clergy…from all religions who support women making this complex decision,” and that Planned Parenthood “will refer you to someone...

    The Churchs conflict with non-Christian religions is to be expected. Israels monotheistic faith was in direct confrontation with the many gods of Babylon and Egypt. Christians were confronted with the many altars to the gods of the Greco-Roman Empire. Interfaith was not on the cards. This situation clearly reflected the fundamental differences between the many forms of Oneist paganism in which everything is God, and Twoist biblical faith, in which God is the separate Creator and everything else is creation. In one case everything is one and the same; in the other, God and creation are radically different. There is,...

    TOPEKA, Kan., Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Remember when "God" said he wanted to plaster a pro-tolerance message on a billboard in the back yard of the Westboro Baptist Church? Well, thanks to the donations of more than 3,700 funders, God -- or at least the mysterious person running God's Facebook page -- has raised more than $80,0000 in support of a "God Loves Gays" billboard in Topeka, Kan.

    Mike Dickinson, the unhinged Virginia Democrat who once sought the House seat formerly held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., issued a tweet Sunday asking God to kill everyone in the NRA with the Ebola virus. The tweet was sent after he issued another message saying he would lead a prayer asking God to murder everyone in the NRA during the debut of his alleged radio program. "Dear god (sic)," he began. "Please use Ebola to infect the @NRA and it's various members. For they are A (sic) true virus and true terrorists in America." He followed that up with another...

    Most antiquities scholars think that the New Testament gospels are mythologized history. In other words, they think that around the start of the first century a controversial Jewish rabbi named Yeshua ben Yosef gathered a following and his life and teachings provided the seed that grew into Christianity. At the same time, these scholars acknowledge that many Bible stories like the virgin birth, miracles, resurrection, and women at the tomb borrow and rework mythic themes that were common in the Ancient Near East, much the way that screenwriters base new movies on old familiar tropes or plot elements. In this...

    Planned Parenthood abortion business officials in Ohio are looking for volunteers to pray at a pryer event. No, Planned Parenthood is not asking people to pray for an end to abortion in the way pro-life advocates pray at prayer events like 40 Days for Life. Instead the abortion giant is hoping Buckeye State residents will pray for more abortions. plannedparenthood118As this Planned Parenthood announcement indicates, the abortion corporation wants people to join an abortion activist who is calling for prayer in response to the states refusal to expand Obamacare, which funds abortion and sends taxapayer dollars to the abortion giant....

    A recent story at Esquire chronicled the abortion practice of Willie Parker, an abortionist who commutes from Chicago to Mississippi to commit abortions at the state’s last abortion mill. Mississippi is devoid of any abortionists of its own who are capable of obtaining hospital admitting privileges, a requirement now mandated by law in several states. Consequently, Parker — who boasts an unusually clean record for an abortionist, and was able to obtain privileges nearby — travels to the South to fill in.Esquire calls Parker’s practice a “ministry,” playing off of the abortionist’s professed Christianity. The author chose to conclude the...

    The Bible condemns abortion with its admonitions against murder and encouragement to choose life and respect the life God created. But the wife of a prominent late-term abortion practitioner thinks the Bible justifies her husband’s profession.After a hearing late last week which saw a local judge issue an order closing down his abortion clinic if it failed to meet state health and safety laws, Martin Haskell and his wife left the courtroom and were greeted by pro-life advocates.Bryan Kemper of Stand True, Paula Westwood of Cincinnati Right to Life, and Mark Harington of Created Equal were present in the courtroom...

    Perfectly bald, with a salt-and-pepper goatee, a small gold hoop gleaming in his left ear, and a warm smile on his dark brown face, Dr. Willie Parker enters the waiting room. Eleven young women and one tired forty-three-year-old mother sit in a circle of chairs, regarding him with somber expressions. Eight are black. Four are white. One has jittery legs that never stop moving. Another has giant false eyelashes in constant motion. The rest are absolutely still, sitting with straight backs, like good students or condemned prisoners. One has her hair in a tight bun, another wears a Nefertiti head...

    During a hearing with House Democrats on Tuesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi argued that the bill proposed by Republicans did not have the adequate resources to help unattended minors crossing the border with the immigration court process. The bill, announced by Republicans on Tuesday, would spend $659 million in new spending in response to the crisis on the border. Citing a friend, Pelosi said that we cannot have deportation without representation, and she praised the groups that were working to help the detained children. The hearing featured unattended minors, now living in the United States, who complained about how...

    When, in 2012, EPA official Al Almendariz likened his enforcement strategy for federal drilling policies to Romans’ peacekeeping tactics in the Mediterranean — “Crucify them,” he quipped — he was only exhibiting what many already knew: that the Environmental Protection Agency performs its work with an almost religious zeal. But the agency’s latest effort — a massive clampdown on the nation’s coal industry — is receiving actual religious imprimatur. This week 28 religious leaders, representing not only a number of Christian denominations (Presbyterian, Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, Quaker, Baptist, and more) but other faiths (Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and Bahāʾī), testified in...

    Bill Donohue comments on President Obamas remarks last night at the White House honoring Eid-al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan: Last night the president said that Eid reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. He would have done us a service had he enumerated them. That is why we stand with people of all faiths, he continued, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to...
