Best-selling Christian author and preacher Max Lucado was never consulted about being featured in a progressive Christian nonprofit's anti-Donald Trump ad campaign that launched last week and includes audio from his interview with National Public Radio earlier this year.
The Christian Post reported on Friday that the left-leaning Faith in Public Life Action Fund recently launched a $300,000 anti-Trump ad campaign that features four different video ads highlighting the Republican nominee's offensive comments about women.
As the ads attempt to target evangelical millennials and Catholic women, they will run from now until election night on a number of national and state news websites, including The Washington Post, The New York Times and USA Today. more >>
The Reverend Samuel Rodriguez had stated that Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton wants Hispanic Christians to go against their own religious beliefs in supporting her.
In a statement emailed to supporters on Monday morning, the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference said that Clinton wants Christians "'to Sacrifice Our Most Cherished Values."
"Latinos are pro-life. Latinos, whether they be Evangelical or Catholic, must never sacrifice truth on the altar of political expediency," stated Rodriguez. more >>
Did anyone else notice that Donald Trump, Republican nominee for President, hit a sour note at the debate with the pro-life conversation?
When asked by moderator Chris Wallace about a woman's right to abortion and if he would overturn Roe v. Wade, Trump did not specifically state that he would.
What Trump was trumpeting was "I would think that would go back to the individual states" — and then "If they overturned it, it would go back to the states" — , and finally he stated "It will go back to the states and the states will then make a determination" — not exactly a resounding end of Roe v. Wade. Turning the decision back to the states only let's states decide to continue to abort babies, it does not make abortion illegal in this country, therefore abortions will still continue to erode our nation of the potential of her future. more >>
"In a speech at Variety's 2016 Power of Women L.A. luncheon last week, actress Scarlett Johansson said abortion is no longer 'a woman's rights issue' but 'a human rights issue'," Melanie Hunter reports at CNSNews.com.
"A woman's right to choose what to do with her body shouldn't be just a woman's right. It's the year 2016, and this is a human rights issue," the actress said.
I would suggest this is an odd "human right." For as Ms. Johansson expresses it, it is a human right that does not apply to all human beings. more >>
The next president will affect the Supreme Court, and in turn the nation, bigly.
With the current vacancy on the bench left by Justice Antonin Scalia, who died February 13, and the fact that several sitting justices are in their late seventies or eighties, many believe that whoever is elected president will likely nominate several justices that will indelibly shape the future of America for generations.
When Scalia was still alive there were four justices who were conservative, four who were liberal, and Anthony Kennedy who is often regarded as the swing vote. Thus far, Senate Republicans have stymied President Obama's current nominee to replace Scalia, Merrick Garland, who sits on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. more >>
Recent revelations through the WikLeaks hacked emails show an anti-Catholic and anti-evangelical bias on the part of some of Hillary's campaign staff.
For instance, Sandy Newman, president of Voices for Progress wrote to John Podesta, now Hillary's campaign manager, in a February 2012 email: "There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic church."
Podesta replied, "We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this." more >>
