    Pope Francis encouraged Catholics in Africa to reject abortion and treat children as a blessing on Thursday in Kenya. "We are also called to resist practices which foster arrogance in men, hurt or demean women, and threaten the life of the innocent unborn," the pontiff said during a Mass at the University of Nairobi, Kenya, according to the BBC. He encouraged young people to stand up for the sanctity of every human life by shaping "a society which is ever more just, inclusive and respectful of human dignity." He added that they "should reject everything that leads to prejudice...

    Pope Francis told Christian and Muslim leaders in Kenya on Thursday that they have little choice but to engage in dialogue to guard against the "barbarous" Islamic extremist attacks that have struck Kenya recently, saying religious leaders must be "prophets of peace" in a world sown by hatred. On his first full day in Africa, Francis insisted that religion can never be used to justify violence and lamented that "all too often, young people are being radicalized in the name of religion to sow discord and fear, and to tear at the very fabric of our societies." He said interfaith...

    Reuters ^ | 16 October 2015
    The number of Africans trapped in poverty has surged by around 100 million over the past quarter century, the World Bank said on Friday, despite years of economic growth and multi-million dollar aid programs. The report's figures, described as "staggering" by the bank's Africa head Makhtar Diop, showed widespread malnutrition, and rising violence against civilians, particularly in central regions and the Horn of Africa. "It is projected that the world's extreme poor will be increasingly concentrated in Africa," Diop added in a foreword. A surge in population meant the proportion of Africans in poverty had actually fallen since 1990, but...

The Texas senator vowed that, if elected, he would rip to shreds the Iranian agreement deal recently passed through Congress, and kill the countrys leader if it didnt give up its nuclear ambitions. If the Ayatollah doesnt understand that, we may have to help introduce him to the 72 virgins, Cruz said to wild cheers from the audience of conservative Christians. The...

Hillsdale College, a 1,500-student liberal arts college in Michigan, is ranked by U.S. News and World Reports as the 67th-best national liberal arts college in the country. The college is well-known for the conservative identity of its student body and its focus on a core curriculum that emphasizes Judeo-Christian tradition and the U.S. Constitution.

    The progressive movement that has overtaken the Democratic Party gains its moral authority in a morally relativistic world in part based on its support of the oppressed over the oppressor. As Joshua Muravchik ably argues in his Making David Into Goliath, in this construct, Israel has morphed into the oppressor, swapping roles with the Muslim countries that have wished to destroy her from the time of her founding. The Leftist-Jihadist nexus of which Andy McCarthy writes, on display from elite college campuses to the presidents cabinet, is perhaps stronger than it has ever been. It believes in punishing the ultimate...

He used the occasion of a toast to Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta to joke about his own search for his birth certificate. The usual round of VIP visits and dinners were marred, however, by this president’s insistence on pushing his radical social agenda on Africans.

And if the mere awesomeness of his presence fails to change minds, Obama will attempt to humiliate his ideological adversaries into submission by getting in their face. For example, after Barack ‘LGBTQ’ Obama was specifically asked by the Evangelical Alliance...

"I have decided to call my baby Air Force One Barack Obama so that we can all...
