    At a Black History Month event held at a Trenton, N.J. church on Sunday, Democratic Senator Bob Menendez blamed conservatives for his ethics scandals, framing them as a racial attack on him because of his Hispanic heritage. “I have felt the sting of discrimination,” he told approximately 300 worshipers, according to the Bergen Record. ”It has never been easy.” “Now we face anonymous, faceless, nameless individuals from right-wing sources seeking to destroy a lifetime of work,” Menendez said at Shiloh Baptist Church.

    DAYTON, Ohio, Oct 31 (AFP) - Democratic nominee John Kerry on Sunday pledged to heal America's "wounds" as he preached to African American worshippers in the crucial swing state of Ohio, two days before the toss-up US election. Kerry, at the altar of the Shiloh Baptist church, tempered his raw meat political message with lessons from the Bible, to chide the social and economic policies of his opponent, President George W. Bush. "As the scripture teaches us, those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength and they will soar on wings like eagles and they will run and...

    Angel Tree, our Prison Fellowship program for prisoners’ children, is one of the great unheralded volunteer outreaches in America. Over the Christmas holidays these past few weeks, approximately 100,000 volunteers delivered Angel Tree gifts to more than 525,000 children of inmates.
