Republican Party nominee Donald Trump's campaign recently announced the creation of a Catholic advisory group that will assist the presidential hopeful to appeal to Catholics.
In an announcement posted to his campaign website last week, the Trump campaign provided a list of advisory group members, which include former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, longtime conservative activist Richard Viguerie, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, veteran Republican strategist Mary Matalin, and Congressman Sean Duffy of Wisconsin.
In a statement released as part of the announcement, Congressman Duffy argued that if elected president Trump "will fight for Catholics." more >>
America won't be saved by a "political awakening," said Pastor Ronnie Floyd, who was among over 40 Christian leaders that came together at The Gathering to pray for a spiritual transformation in the nation.
"Many of us, as believers, at times if we're not careful, we're more committed to some kind of political awakening," said Floyd at the solemn assembly hosted by Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas, Wednesday night.
"That's not the answer to this nation. The answer to the nation is the next great awakening with the Holy Spirit of God. And He wakes up the Church and He shakes the Church," added Floyd, who's the senior pastor of Cross Church in Northwest Arkansas and former president of the Southern Baptist Convention. more >>
Italian writer Costanza Miriano angered women's rights activists across Europe in 2013 when she released her best-selling book, Marry Him and Be Submissive, advising women to forsake the heresy of feminism and submit to their husbands in order to enjoy a more fulfilling life.
She is now hoping to reintroduce this concept to the modern American woman — hinged on the advice doled out by St. Paul in the book of Ephesians — in the English translation of the book published last month by TAN Books.
"You will have to learn from the advice of St. Paul and be submissive. That means, literally, as we say in Italian, sotto messo — 'placed under' so as to be the support of your family. You must be its foundations. You will sustain everyone, your husband and your children, by adapting, accepting, suggesting, and sweetly engaging," she writes. more >>
Family Research Council Action and Concerned Women for America have embarked on a 20-state nationwide Values Bus Tour aimed at educating voters about the importance of the 2016 presidential election and the impact it will have on religious freedom, parental rights, national security, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
"If we, as values voters, do not stand up and exercise our freedoms now, we may lose them tomorrow," FRC President Tony Perkins said as the tour began last week in Omaha, Nebraska.
"We have political choices in this election that will either allow Americans to regain the freedoms that have eroded under the Obama administration or make it even more difficult for Americans to live their lives according to their beliefs. This is not a time to stand on the sidelines," he added. more >>
Huffington Post blogger Larua Goldman has criticized the recently released film "Bridget Jones's Diary" simply because abortion and birth control were not discussed as options in the movie.
In "Bridget Jones's Baby," the third movie of the "Bridget Jones" trilogy, the over 40 Bridget Jones (played by Renée Zellweger) breaks up with her boyfriend and then shortly after develops a new love interest. When she ends up getting pregnant, Jones is unsure of who the father is.
Although some women in that situation might consider getting an abortion, Jones decides to carry the child to term. more >>
President Barack Obama's administration announced a new proposed rule that if enacted will compel states to fund Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
Earlier this month the Health and Human Services Department posted a proposed rule on the Federal Register website that invokes Title X in arguing that entities like Planned Parenthood should be allowed to use taxpayer funds on "family planning projects."
"The Department is proposing to amend the regulations at 42 CFR 59.3 to require that project recipients that do not provide services directly may not prohibit subrecipients from participating on bases unrelated to their ability to provide Title X services effectively," reads the proposed rule. more >>
