    A House investigatory panel has summoned Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to testify at a May 18 public hearing about her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state. The panel, which is probing the September 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, has scheduled a second public hearing one month later, on June 18, to grill Clinton about Benghazi. Both hearings are contingent upon Clinton providing "a complete record" about her role before, during and after the attacks, which killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. That may be...
  • Evangelical leader: Vote for Hillary Clinton, she’ll cut abortion rate in half

    A national evangelical Christian leader has written that his fellow believers should vote for Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, because she will radically reduce the abortion rate. Hillary, in whose campaign abortion industry lobbyists play a conspicuous role, favors abortion-on-demand throughout pregnancy. Yet Tony Campolo believes a second Clinton presidency will halve the number of abortions nationwide. “Hillary Clinton is one of the few candidates on the political stage who has a plan for cutting the abortion rate in America by at least 50 percent,” Campolo, a sociology professor emeritus at Eastern University, wrote in a debate on Religion News...

    Earlier this week, the Religion News Service asked liberal pastor Tony Campolo to make the Christian case for Hillary Clinton and asked me to make the case against. Campolo calls himself the “positive prophet of red letter Christianity” and is a personal friend of the Clintons. Let’s just say we had starkly different assessments. Here’s Campolo: Clinton also understands how Congress works — a needed skill since legislative gridlock has characterized Washington over the last several years. Amid dire problems, the last session of Congress proved to be one of the least productive of any in our nation’s history. It...

    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday said Iran bore no hatred towards the United States as he held talks with American Christians in a rare official contact with visitors from Tehran's arch enemy. State television showed Ahmadinejad meeting with a dozen American representatives from various Christian orders who are in Iran for a week-long visit to promote peace and dialogue between the foes. "The Iranian nation does not have any feeling of hatred and opposition towards the American people and we believe that all people are respectful and given the common grounds people have, they could achieve peace and justice," Ahmadinejad...
  • What’s wrong with Darwinism? ( From Tony Campolo, Bill Clinton's spiritual adviser)

    Many supporters of the principle of separation of church and state say that the Intelligent Design Theory of creation ought not to be taught in public schools because that it contains a religious bias. They say that Intelligent Design proponents suggest that the evolutionary development of life was not the result of natural selection, as Charles Darwin suggested, but was somehow given purposeful direction and, by implication, was guided by God. Arguing in favour of what they believe is a non-prejudicial science, they contend that children in public schools ought to be taught Darwin’s explanation of how the human race...

    Warren consistently used the language of a religious pluralist. He spoke of "mosques, temples and churches" as central to the life of villages in the developing world. He underscored the fact that there are huge numbers of people of faith in the world, and huge numbers of houses of worship in places where clinics, banks and schools don't exist. Those people of faith can be trained to be the arms and legs of any development plan, and those houses of worship can double as clinics, banks and schools. This is a big deal, because it signals an important turn in...

    SEVERAL DOZEN PROMINENT evangelicals have released a letter to President Bush in an effort to distinguish themselves from ardent pro-Israel evangelicals and to urge evenhandedness between Israel and the Palestinians. The letter's authors got the idea while visiting the U.S.-Islamic World Forum in Doha, Qatar, where, according to the New York Times, they "met Muslim and American diplomats who were shocked to discover the existence of American evangelicals who favored a Palestinian state." The organizers plan to translate their letter into Arabic and distribute it internationally. "As evangelical Christians committed to the full teaching of the Scriptures, we know that...

    A group of self-described "progressive" Christian evangelicals calling themselves "Red Letter Christians," and led by the left-oriented Sojourners magazine and left-oriented religious pundits like Jim Wallis and Tony Campolo, has recently emerged in the body politic. These self-proclaimed "progressives" have been making a lot of noise recently complaining about the ties that other Christian evangelicals have long held with the conservative movement in the United States, including the conservative movement in the Republican Party. One policy under attack by these "progressives" is the conservative effort to "cut programs to the poor." They say that such a policy goes against Jesus...

    For the Christian left to claim connection to true Christianity is to deny its leftist tendencies, and for them to claim connection to the aims of the political left is to deny its Christianity. They seem to share more anger for fellow Christians than they do toward evil. And this reality, while unexplainable, is nevertheless present and growing in influence. This week I entertained one of the main spokesmen for the movement, Dr. Tony Campolo. I asked him directly why his new book, "Letters to a Young Evangelical," seemed to have such great disdain for the Christian right. He responded,...

    The Red Letter Christians, a "progressive" group, says it offers an alternative to the religious right in the discussion about moral values in American politics. The liberal group claims Christian conservatives focus too heavily on abortion and homosexuality. "Since the 2004 election, the term 'values voters' has become a mainstay of the political discussion, and we're hearing it again this fall. But the discussion has generally been very narrow and discusses particularly one specific type of voter -- a conservative, white, evangelical, Republican," said Rev. Jim Wallis, founder and editor of Sojourners Magazine, at the National Press Club in Washington,...
  • (Sabeel) Liberation Theology in the Middle East

    "Liberation Theology" was the theological justification for Western church groups that backed Marxist revolution 20 and 30 years ago. Its influence waned with those failed revolutions, especially in Latin America, but it continues to shape intellectual life in the Middle East, as a tool against Israel. The Jerusalem-based Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center coordinates the anti-Israel advocacy of U.S. church groups. Sabeel guides and leads U.S. church delegations when they come to the Middle East, where they are exposed primarily to a pro-Palestinian perspective. When Sabeel conducts conferences in the U.S. or Canada, North American denominations host and promote the...

    Dan Wakefield wants to make it clear that he is not calling for "holy war." True, the title of his new book, The Hijacking of Jesus: How the Religious Right Distorts Christianity and Promotes Prejudice and Hate (Nation Books, $23.95), may sound like a shot across the bow of, oh, about half the churches in America.

    Capitalism is not economic anarchy. When properly defined, it recognizes several necessary conditions for the kinds of voluntary relationships it supports. One of these is the existence of inherent human rights, such as the right to make decisions, the right to be free, the right to hold property, and the right to exchange peacefully what one owns for something else. Capitalism also presupposes a system of morality. Under capitalism, there are definite limits, moral and otherwise, to the ways in which people can exchange. Capitalism should be viewed as a system of voluntary relationships within a framework of laws that...
  • Tony Campolo's Appearance on Fox News' "Heartland" 8/28

    Did anyone catch Tony Campolo's interview with John Kasich on Fox News' "Heartland" this evening? He claims that Republicans have "hijacked" evangelical Christianity, and solely on the basis of the abortion issue. During the interview, he tried to position himself as politically neutral--"Jesus is neither a Republican nor a Democrat; He would be mad at both parties," yet his website describes him as an "Evangelical Democrat." His biggest beefs with George Bush apparently relate to what he perceives as his indifference to the poor and the environment. (Bush the friend of billionaire polluters, etc.)

    FORT WORTH, Texas - (KRT) - Sixteen prominent theologians and religious leaders, some with ties to former President Clinton, have called on President Bush to stop asking Republican Party volunteers for church membership directories. The Rev. Tony Campolo, a former spiritual adviser to Clinton, helped write a letter to Bush that was mailed Friday. Ron Flowers, a retired religion professor at Texas Christian University, added his name to the letter. He said he wants to call attention to the Bush campaign's attempt to "politicize churches." He said the letter, which urges both Bush and Democratic Sen. John Kerry to respect...

    One of the great untold stories of the Middle East conflict between Israelis and Palestinians is that one side is guilty of the worst kind of ethnic cleansing and advocates a genocidal policy of extinction toward the other. It is official policy of the Palestinian Authority and its supporters through the Arab and Muslim world that Jews cannot live in their territories and in any future Palestinian state. It remains to this day the official policy of the Palestinian Authority that the Jews of Israel must be wiped out, their state destroyed and its people annihilated. Meanwhile, Israel grants full...

    Liberal Dunce In Evangelical Clothing Again Takes Questionable Stand On Controversial IssueBy Frederick Meekins Toogood Reports [May 26, 2002; 12:01 a.m. ET] Matthew 10:16 warns the believer to be as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves. Yet it seems many Christians do everything within their power to throw common sense to the wind, foremost among them being Christian author Tony Campolo. At a Baptist conference in North Carolina covered by the Evangelical Press, Campolo elaborated upon his position regarding the war on terrorism. Americans should thank G-d each night that this minister is not charged with formulating strategic...
