In a live, interactive event on Tuesday, former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson and television and film actor and producer Kirk Cameron urged Christians to exercise their right to vote, warning that "when you don't vote, you're voting."
Many Americans feel we are on the wrong track as a nation, and that we are giving away our values and principles, the retired neurosurgeon said at the beginning of the tele-forum event, live from Carson's living room.
About 25 million people of faith didn't vote last time who could have voted, Carson said. "Our future is in our own hands," and also that of our children and grandchildren. "We have to stand up for what we believe." more >>
Moral clarity alert. The kid gloves are off. Time for some serious soul searching.
You proponents of the torturous live-dismemberment of children in the womb, just knock it off already. Your pro-abortion euphemisms — "pro-choice," "reproductive freedom," "women's rights" and other such propagandist nonsense — have run their shameful course.
As you regressive "progressives" like to say, "The science is settled." Pre-born babies are objectively and empirically distinct persons with emotions, autonomy (though in a dependent stage of human development, not unlike post-birth babies) and the unalienable human rights intrinsic to all human beings. more >>
Prominent conservative African-American pastor Harry Jackson warns that the black community in America has been involved in an "adulterous relationship" with the Democratic Party and suggests that the agenda of the Democratic presidential nominee is "anchored in Biblical darkness."
Jackson, the senior pastor at Hope Christian Church in Maryland and co-founder of The Reconciled Church movement that seeks to bring racial healing to America, spoke on "The Colors That Unite" program hosted by pro-Donald Trump pastor Mark Burns on Sunday, and explained why he thinks black voters are better off voting for Trump than Clinton.
During the program Burns and Jackson, who are both on Trump's evangelical advisory board, discussed why it is that many black Christian voters continue to vote for Democratic candidates even though their stances on issues like abortion and marriage don't align. more >>
This week, Pew Research Center released a poll of over 4,000 individuals who had attended a religious service within the past few months. It asked respondents how often clergy had spoken out about various social and political issues.
An impressive 64 percent of respondents reported that they had heard clergy speak about at least one of the six issues included in the survey. However, the survey indicates that when it comes to polarizing morality policy issues, majorities of churchgoers hear nothing.
Only 40 percent of respondents stated that clergy had spoken about religious liberty. Similarly, 39 percent stated that clergy had spoken about homosexuality. Finally, only 29 percent of respondents recalled hearing about abortion. more >>
Independent presidential hopeful Evan McMullin, a former CIA agent and chief policy director for the House Republican Conference, spoke with The Christian Post about religious liberty, Donald Trump, his Mormon faith, and the challenge of getting his name on state ballots.
On August 8, McMullin garnered national headlines when he announced that he was going to run for president, arguing in an open letter that Americans deserve a better choice than either Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton or Republican nominee Donald Trump.
"Like millions of Americans, I had hoped this year would bring us better nominees who, despite party differences, could offer compelling visions of a better future," stated McMullin. "Instead, we have been left with two candidates who are fundamentally unfit for the profound responsibilities they seek." more >>
Bestselling author Eric Metaxas has responded to Hillary Clinton's recent claim that she has worked for years to defend religious liberty by saying that if ever there was an enemy to religious liberty, the former Secretary of State would be it.
Metaxas, who authored a number of books including one on the "forgotten promise of American liberty" and one on prominent religious freedom advocate Dietrich Bonhoeffer, appeared on Fox News Thursday to comment on the Democratic presidential nominee's recent op-ed in a Mormon-operated newspaper in which she claimed that she is the best candidate for religious freedom voters in the 2016 election.
"I've been fighting to defend religious freedom for years," Clinton wrote for the Utah-based Deseret News this week. "As secretary of state, I made it a cornerstone of our foreign policy to protect the rights of religious minorities around the world — from Coptic Christians in Egypt to Buddhists in Tibet." more >>
