    LYNCHBURG — GOP U.S. Senate candidate Nick Freitas in a debate on Thursday called out rival Corey Stewart’s campaign for making ethnic jokes about his name.

    LYNCHBURG, Va. — After one of the most tumultuous weeks of his presidency, President Trump traveled to Liberty University on Saturday morning to deliver a subdued pep talk. For once, it was not a campaign speech — although he did marvel the large crowd and bragged about his success with evangelical voters. Instead, the president explained to graduates of the Evangelical Christian School how to stay tough when no one agrees with you, when everyone is criticizing you, when you feel like running home to your mother. “Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy,” the president said. “Following your...

    Jerry Falwell Jr. said in an op-ed yesterday, that Trump is Churchillian. I agree 1000% with Jerry, Obama and Clinton are the Neville Chamberlains of our time and Donald John Trump is the Churchill of the Century. Obama lives in his pathetic neo-Islamic Afro-Centrist world, Hillary lives in her corrupt pay to play world, and Donald J. LIVES the world and KNOWS the truth. And he speaks the truth to the American people, unlike Obama, Hillary and Karl Rove. By the way, for you libtards out there, "Churchillian" doesn't mean a lizard who goes to church. But you're hopeless and...

    Just Who Are 'Trump's Evangelicals'? Debates whether conservative Christians should support Donald Trump's presidential bid have revived a more long-term question: Who 'counts' as an evangelical, anyway?' By Molly Jackson, Staff MARCH 6, 2016 Donald Trump has not yet given voters a nuanced view of his understanding of Christian communion: The professed Presbyterian referred to the sacramental bread as "my little cracker" during a meeting with conservative Christian leaders last year; more recently, he tried to put money in an Iowa church's communion plate ahead of the state caucus. But if the unconventional GOP candidate has a tendency to overlook...

    This story has been updated. It was one of Donald Trump’s first powerful endorsements: Jerry Falwell Jr., who testified for many evangelical Christians that despite leading a life of excess, the thrice-married, trash-talking mogul was indeed a God-fearing president-in-waiting. But Falwell’s plunge into presidential politics did not sit so well with intimates of his late father, Jerry Falwell Sr., nor with some at Liberty University, the Christian college in Virginia founded by the elder Falwell and now led by his son. Mark DeMoss, who for many years served as chief of staff to Falwell Sr. and considered the televangelist a...
