With the leaking of thousands of emails last weekend showing that the Democratic National Committee undermined the campaign of Bernie Sanders and displayed partiality toward Hillary Clinton, it was to be expected that this week's Democratic Convention was going to be interesting.
Although the convention concluded Thursday night in Philadelphia with Clinton accepting her party's presidential nomination and the party now seemingly beginning to unite around her and running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, the anti-Hillary and Bernie Sanders-supporting crowd were not afraid to let their displeasure with the party be known.
Such tension and displeasure along with the political prestige of the convention provided for a breeding ground for crazy moments to transpire this week in Philadelphia. more >>
As Hillary Clinton claimed the Democratic presidential nomination Thursday night, the pro-life group Live Action posted a video on its Facebook page Tuesday showing a doctor who performed over 1,200 abortions explaining the gruesome details behind a Clinton-supported late-term abortion procedure.
The video features obstetrician-gynecologist Dr. Anthony Levatino, who conducted abortions in the early part of his career before he realized that abortion, the killing of unborn children, is immoral.
Levatino explains how a late-term induced abortion, which is performed at 25 weeks of gestation to until birth, is conducted. more >>
David Benham of the Benham brothers has condemned the Democratic Party's platform on abortion, arguing that it's seeking to increase "violence against the unborn," and cautioned Christians against voting for presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
"Yes they are pro-choice, but here's what they are doing now. They have actually increased what they want to do against the unborn. They have increased the violence against the unborn," Benham said in a Facebook video posted on Thursday.
"If you call yourself a Christian, and you're voting Democrat, here's what you're voting for. The Democratic National Platform wants to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits my tax dollars from directly paying for abortion. They want to force your money and my money to directly pay for abortion," he continued. more >>
Prominent abortion activist and president of NARAL Pro-Choice America Ilyse Hogue told the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday that she got a "compassionate" abortion years ago because her pregnancy came at an inconvenient time in her life.
Hogue, who spoke the day after Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards addressed the convention, seemingly contradicted the head of the nation's largest abortion provider, who attacked Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump during her remarks Tuesday for claiming that pregnancy is an "inconvenience."
In Hogue's speech, she not only praised women's rights to get an abortion by saying that in order for women to succeed in life they need the "tools," "trust" and "chance to chart" their "own path," but also explained her reasoning why she decided to terminate the life of her unborn child. more >>
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the reason many white males prefer Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump over his rival Hillary Clinton is because of the issues of guns, gays and God.
"I think that, so many times, white — non-college-educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G's, God being the woman's right to choose," Pelosi said in an interview with PBS's Judy Woodruff on Wednesday.
Pelosi did not elaborate on that comment, but Trump and Clinton stand on opposing sides on a number of the above-mentioned issues. more >>
There are few sins God hates as much as shedding innocent blood, especially the blood of children. Seeing that Hillary Clinton is a radically pro-abortion candidate and seeing that the Democratic platform reinforces those radical views, can a Christian vote for Hillary in good conscience?
In Jeremiah 19, God explained why the people of Judah were about to go into exile: It was because they worshiped idols and because they "filled this place [speaking of Jerusalem] with the blood of the innocent. They have built the high places of Baal to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal — something I did not command or mention, nor did it enter my mind" (Jer. 19:4-5).
Because of these heinous sins, Jerusalem was destroyed and the Temple of Yahweh burned to the ground, with tens of thousands going into exile. more >>
