    Columbus, Indiana hosted its first LGBT pride festival April 14, and by all accounts, it was a success. The event was planned and spearheaded by a high school student named Erin Bailey who began planning the event as a school project. More than 1,000 people reportedly attended, and the town’s population of 47,000 welcomed them generously with rainbow banners in the streets. The Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT rights organization, supported, promoted and attended the event as well. When the event was first announced in late March of this year, it received recognition from dozens of international media outlets that...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), in an appearance on The Ellen Show on Thursday, joked about killing President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, or Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Host Ellen DeGeneres asked Harris, “If you had to be stuck on an elevator with either President Trump, Mike Pence, or Jeff Sessions, who would it be?” The California senator paused before answering the question. “Does one of us have to come out alive?” she responded, cracking up at her own joke. She did not answer the original question.

    So, does the Left hate Christianity?  There have been a more than a few disconcerting moments from the news media and others, where they’ve attacked people’s faiths. You had The View’s Joy Behar mocking Vice President Mike Pence’s faith, saying he was mentally ill in February. Behar apologized to Pence personally, which we only found out through an ABC shareholders meeting earlier this month. Pence accepted the apology, but wanted a public one as well. On March 13, Behar publicly apologized (via WaPo): “I think Vice President Pence is right; I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith, and I...

    Second lady Karen Pence and her daughter Charlotte Pence published a children's book this week about their pet bunny Marlon Bundo, who offers readers a glimpse into a day in the life of the vice president. Charlotte penned the poetry in the book, while Mrs. Pence drew the illustrations. I had the chance to speak with them about the project a few weeks ago. They were excited for the opportunity to share their talents and to offer a fun educational lesson on the office of the vice presidency. They also dished on what an honor it is to serve.While bunny...

    President Trump on Sunday used his Twitter platform to try and discredit James Comey and Andrew McCabe, whose FBI careers were cut short amid acrimony over the Russian-meddling probe and how the bureau handled probes into the Clinton family. Both men reportedly kept memos detailing their interactions with Mr. Trump, which could factor into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of any ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, or fuel potential obstruction of justice charges against the president. Mr. Trump downplayed their relevance on Twitter. “Spent very little time with Andrew McCabe, but he never took notes when he was...

    They call themselves Main Street Republicans, moderates consigned to the back alleys of politics by their own party. But despite a severe bruising in the fall election, this minority within a minority finds itself with new avenues to explore, including working more closely with Democrats. The Republican Main Street Partnership, a leading voice of GOP moderates in Congress, lost seven of its 48 House members to Democratic challengers in the November election. Two other senior members, Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, R-N.Y., and Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz., are retiring. The group also saw Sen. Lincoln Chafee, R-R.I., one of its eight Senate members...

    Last week, Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the spat between View co-host Joy Behar and VP Mike Pence during a shareholders meeting. Iger revealed in his response to that question that Behar had personally apologized to Pence. Today, we begin round 5(?) of this story with an interview with Mike Pence set to air on Hannity tonight. From Fox News: “I give Joy Behar a lot of credit. She picked up the phone. She called me. She was very sincere, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you’ve...

    Joy Behar has apologized to Vice President Mike Pence for comparing his Christian faith to a "mental illness" after the network and its sponsors received tens of thousands of complaints. The Washington Post reported late Thursday that a phone call took place between Behar and Pence during which she apologized for her remarks on the ABC daytime talk show "The View" last month. The two reportedly spoke about how they were both raised Roman Catholic and Pence told her he was confirmed with the name "Christopher." "Yes, she did speak to Vice President Pence, they had a great, very nice...

    Axl Rose has hit out at Apple’s Tim Cook on Twitter, describing him as the “Donald Trump of the music industry”. Cook is the current chief executive officer (CEO) of Apple, taking over from Steve Jobs in 2011 after the company’s co-founder resigned. He was previously Apple’s chief operating officer (COO). Guns N’ Roses frontman Rose has now appeared to criticise Cook by tweeting: “Tim Cook is the Donald Trump of the music industry.” Rose’s reasoning is not quite clear. Rose has previously criticised Donald Trump for appointing controversial former Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions as his Attorney General, later asking...

    The people of the United States are not being very well represented by their broadcast and cable news networks. Except for Fox News, all of the other major television news operations are decidedly liberal, even though the country is considered to be center-right politically. While there is a Republican in the White House and the party controls most state legislatures, the Congress and has 33 governors, most of the mainstream news media is in lockstep with the opposition party, the liberal Democrats. There is no better example of liberal media bias today than ABC, the television network owned by the...

    A federal judge ruled that the state of Indiana cannot block Syrian refugees from resettling in the state under an order from then Gov. Mike Pence (R). In November 2015, Pence was part of a group of 16 governors who announced plans to block Syrian refugees from settling in their states in the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris. All but one of the governors were Republicans. The Indiana policy prevented state agencies from making payments to a nonprofit that helped resettle Syrian refugees. U.S. District Judge Tonya Walton Pratt on Tuesday ruled that Indiana could no longer withhold authorized...

    On Friday, the US Department of State announced plans to move the United States embassy to Jerusalem in May of this year. Israelis rejoiced over the announcement. This past December, US President Donald Trump made his historic announcement, in which he formally declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and his intentions to move the US embassy there. “This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done,” Trump said during his speech. Since Trump’s historic announcement, there was uncertainty as to when the...

    The View's Joy Behar is on the defensive after ABC News was inundated with thousands of complaints when her show mocked Vice President Mike Pence’s Christianity. Tuesday, February 13, Joy Behar mocked the Vice President’s faith on national television, calling it “mental illness” to listen to the Lord. The next day a somber Pence responded that such an attack on Christian prayer “was just wrong.” A fervor ensued. The 75-year-old Behar is now back-peddling on her comment, calling it a “joke.” “I’m going to put the question to you,” Whoopi Goldberg forewarned Behar on Thursday’s episode of The View. “Do...

    “Teen Vogue” Columnist Lauren Duca responded to news of Rev. Billy Graham’s death by telling him to, “Have fun in hell, bitch.” Taking to Twitter after news broke that the world-renowned and beloved evangelist had died Wednesday at age 99, Duca mocked Graham’s longevity and hurled her insult: “The big news today is that Billy Graham was still alive this whole time. Anyway, have fun in hell, bitch.” After receiving backlash on Twitter for her hateful irreverence, Duca doubled-down on her comment, declaring that “Respecting the dead” only applies to people who weren’t evil pieces of sh*t while they were...

    Billy Graham was part of the conservative movement in 20th Century Protestantism as 'fundamentalist' and 'modernist' divisions split up the major denominations and led to independent churches and para-church organizations sprouting up across the country. Dr. Graham spent the 1940's as a touring evangelist for Youth for Christ. Graham preached from town to town. Tents were erected for evangelistic meetings and he went here, there and everywhere from coast to coast. A series of meetings were held in my area (York,PA) in 1948. Then one day a famous man, a wealthy wan and a man with a media empire walked...

    Acquaintances from the early years remember that the Graham youngsters were less than models of decorum in their behavior at church and other public gatherings, but Ruth did her best to exercise a rather stern and consistent discipline at home. She claimed to have obtained some of her most effective child-rearing techniques from a dog-training manual whose directives included keeping commands simple and at a minimum, seeing to it that they were obeyed, rewarding obedience with praise and being consistent. Three of the five Graham children have divorced. Ruth was the first. When she discovered that her husband had been...

    Fifty years ago, in the wake of the hard-fought 1968 presidential election, the nation faced what many assumed would be a turbulent transition. But it did not turn out that way. Whatever happened later, the country moved from what had been one of the most divisive campaigns in our history, to a comparatively calm and remarkably orderly (considering the times) transfer of power. This was due, in large part, to the combined and concerted efforts of two savvy politicians and a preacher. His name is Billy Graham, and he was born just four days before the guns fell silent ending...
