    Evangelical broadcaster James Dobson Wednesday praised Ted Cruz's bid for the Republican presidential nomination, saying in a new television ad that the Texas senator is critical to naming more conservatives to the Supreme Court. "With Justice Scalia's death, we need a president who will defend the Constitution and nominate conservatives to the high court," Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, said in endorsing Cruz as a private citizen. "I know Ted," Dobson said. "He's a Christian family man of the utmost integrity."

    If it's the future, and the end of the world is nigh, it's probably safe to assume that things are looking grim. If all you have to eat is the survivalist food you bought from televangelist Jim Bakker in 2015, then your situation may be considerably worse. Jim Bakker and his first wife, Tammy Faye, in 1986. Bakker now sells an array of food products on the television show he co-hosts with his second wife, Lori Bakker.i You might recall Bakker's fall from grace in the '80s after a sex scandal and four-year stint in federal prison for time-share fraud....

    Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.” One of the opening speakers at the 42nd PCA General Assembly told those in attendance that America is rapidly progressing to the point where declaring Jesus the only way to eternal life will be considered spreading hate. “It will be difficult to say in this culture ‘Jesus is the only way’,” Pastor Bryan Chapell warned. “That will be interpreted as hate speech.” Chapell said that sticking to truth will be a point of contention with the...

    Todd Akin hasn't had many high-profile supporters with him in the trenches this week, but Mike Huckabee became an important and emphatic exception Thursday afternoon, sending a message to his own supporters accusing Republican elites of trying to drum a good man out of a winnable Senate race. Here's what Huckabee said in an email to his list this afternoon: Party’s leaders have for reasons that aren't rational, left [Akin] behind on the political battlefield, wounded and bleeding, a casualty of his self-inflicted, but not intentional wound.

    I am disappointed in the tactics and statements of almost all the presidential candidates, both Democrats and Republicans. My grandmother used to say that you can tell just as big a lie with a half-truth and sometimes a bigger one. Take the half-truths said about Mike Huckabee and taxes. I lived in Arkansas when he was the governor. He did away with the marriage tax penalty and the capital gains tax on the sale homes. He doubled Arkansas' standard deduction and the child care tax credit. He slashed the capital gains tax for both individuals and businesses. In 2001, Mike...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- He was born into the glare of televangelist parents Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker. Then the "Praise the Lord" empire collapsed in scandal. His father went to jail for fraud. Jay Bakker spent his teens in the darkness, rebelling and bent on self-destruction from alcohol and drugs. But now, with his 31st birthday next week, this tattooed, multi-pierced pilgrim is on a righteous path: preaching God's grace to a flock of young, downtrodden and disillusioned parishioners most any other church would turn away. Jay is the focus of "One Punk Under God: The Prodigal Son of...
  • PTL Victims to Receive $6.54 Each [Lawyers take $2.5 million of $3.7 million settlement]

    The 165,000 people who gave $1,000 to Jim Bakker's planned Heritage U.S.A. resort in return for promised four-day vacation stays will receive just $6.54 each. That's partly because attorneys will receive $2.5 million of the $3.7 million settlement fund (created by former PTL accountants years ago), under a July 24 order issued by U.S. District Judge Lacy Thornburg in Asheville, North Carolina. A claims administrator will receive $200,000 to track down people entitled to money. Had the victims been given the entire settlement, it would have amounted to only $22.42 each. Thomas T. Anderson and Associates, a California-based law firm,...

    The nearly 165,000 people around the world who lost money to former PTL televangelist Jim Bakker will soon get some money back: $6.54 each. The deal approved by a judge Friday ends a 15-year battle in criminal and civil courts that dethroned the flamboyant preacher, defamed his television ministry and left hundreds of victims going to their graves without compensation. U.S. District Court Judge Lacy Thornburg of North Carolina's Western District gave a Charlotte law firm 30 days to hand out the money to those who sued Bakker in civil court after he was found guilty in 1989 of wire...
