Media mogul Oprah Winfrey didn't bite her tongue when she was asked to comment on the 2016 presidential election on T.D. Jakes' show on Thursday. Being a lifelong Democrat, Oprah affirmed her support for Hillary Clinton and encouraged other Americans to vote for the Democratic presidential nominee if they "like this country."
"The reason why I haven't been vocal other than saying, 'I'm with her,' is because I didn't know what to say that could actually pierce through all the noise and the chaos and the disgusting vitriol that's going on, and actually be heard."
The Oscar nominee told the audience that the decision between the two major candidates should be clear. "But there really is no choice, people. All the people sitting around talking about they can't decide, this is what I want to say. All the people, I hear this all the time, you get into conversations — and there's not a person in this room who hasn't been in the same conversation — where people say, 'I just don't know if I like her.'" more >>

Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, said that while Christians cannot possibly look at the Syrian civil war crisis and not feel compassion for the people, that doesn't mean the United States should accept unvettable refugees.
Jeffress said in an interview with Stuart Varney on Fox Business on Wednesday that while he believes most Muslims are peace-loving, it's also true that radical Muslims, and not Christians, are the ones carrying out terror attacks.
"No Christian, no human being can look at the situation in Syria and not feel compassion for the suffering Syrians. There are many things we can do and should do as a nation, but allowing un-vettable refugees into our country is not one of them," the megachurch pastor said on Wednesday. more >>
