    Do you believe in God? Do you believe - as the bible says - that Jesus is the Christ, the Savior of all who believe in him? If you do, then, terrific! You are on the path of life, the path of eternal life. The bible tells us that those who rest their faith in Jesus Christ will live eternally in heaven. Though life here on earth is only temporary and often times painful , the life in the kingdom of God that is to come - although it is often difficult for us to imagine from where we are...

    American Thinker ^ | 6-6-2012 | Selwyn Duke
    One time I read an internet posting made by a woman who had stopped renting to some Christians who had been tenants at her property. Her reason? They made her feel bad about herself. People who have no intention of dispensing with vice don't like moral standards they pale in comparison to -- which is why moral relativism is all the rage today, and why there is rage at Christianity -- and they don't like moral standard-bearers they pale in comparison to, either. Why do you think the Bible states, "What fellowship hath light with darkness? The darkness hates the...

    What amazes me more than anything today is the ignorance of those who seek to figure out what is at the root of our American decline (socially and fiscally). My friend, unless you have been born again as the Lord Jesus Christ has commanded, you will NEVER be able to understand it let alone see it (John 3:3-7, Rom. 8:5-8, 1 Cor. 2:14, Jude 1:10). When these violations are more numerous against the absolutes of time and space (natural laws and moral absolutes) and are promoted, practiced and deemed natural and normal by the lawless ones of fallen humanity it...

    (AgapePress) - A group of young adults is touring the nation encouraging people to vote in favor of traditional marriage state amendments in the upcoming election. Voters in almost a dozen states will have the opportunity this fall to decide if they want to amend their state constitutions to protect marriage as the union as a man and a woman. Eight members of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property, or TFP, are touring five of those states -- Kentucky, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. They are holding informational rallies in downtown areas, handing out flyers...
  • Log Cabin Republicans attack Republicans

    As our nation's eyes are on New York City for the Republican National Convention, Log Cabin's mission, our courageous delegates and our GOP allies are under intense attack from the radical right. The Republican Party Platform is an outrageous insult to all of us and our families. The platform not only calls for an anti-family Constitutional amendment, but it also opposes civil unions and domestic partnerships.  While thousands of courageous gay and lesbian Americans are fighting to win the war on terror, the platform also says, "Homosexuality is incompatible with military service."  Log Cabin has decided to respond immediately to...

The suit was filed against U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft in federal court in Tampa. The couple's attorney, Ellis Rubin, has filed five previous suits in state and federal courts challenging the ban, but Tuesday's was believed to be the first to attempt to compel the federal government and other states...

    July 18, 2004 LIVES When One Is Enough By AMY RICHARDS as told to AMY BARRETT I grew up in a working-class family in Pennsylvania not knowing my father. I have never missed not having him. I firmly believe that, but for much of my life I felt that what I probably would have gained was economic security and with that societal security. Growing up with a single mother, I was always buying into the myth that I was going to be seduced in the back of a pickup truck and become pregnant when I was 16. I had friends...

    LOS ANGELES - Democrats aren't amused by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (news - web sites)'s use of the mocking term "girlie men" to describe some lawmakers, although a spokesman for the governor said no apology would be forthcoming. Schwarzenegger dished out the insult at a rally Saturday as he claimed Democrats were delaying the budget by catering to special interests. Democrats protested that the remark was sexist and homophobic. "If they don't have the guts to come up here in front of you and say, 'I don't want to represent you, I want to represent those special interests, the unions, the...

    HELENA - A move to change the Montana Constitution to define marriage as only between one man and one woman qualified for the November ballot Thursday, just one day after the U.S. Senate declined to pursue a similar effort to change the U.S. Constitution. Constitutional Initiative 96, proposed by Rep. Jeff Laszloffy, R-Laurel, will ask Montana voters to change the state constitution to specifically ban same-sex marriage and define the union as existing only between one man and one woman. The initiative also states that only marriages between one man and one woman will be recognized in Montana, a stipulation...

    Bill Clinton has warned Senator John Kerry, the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee, to counter Republican efforts to turn this year's election into a debate on gay marriage and other "cultural issues" such as gun control and abortion. In an interview with the Financial Times, the former US president urged Senator Kerry to fight a values-based campaign focused on health, education and crime. If he stayed on that ground, Mr Kerry could win by "quite a nice margin". < clip >

    Senate Democrats on Tuesday appeared headed toward a tactical victory over the hot-button issue of gay marriage. What seemed likely Monday — an up-or-down Senate vote on a proposed constitutional amendment to define marriage as only "the union of a man and a woman" — appeared very doubtful a day later as Republican and Democratic leaders were unable to agree on a procedure for a vote. Republican Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist has scheduled a Wednesday vote on cloture, a procedural move that would limit debate on the topic and allow the Senate to proceed to voting on the proposed...
