The Reverend Franklin Graham has denounced recent remarks by Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton comparing Republicans to terrorists.
In a Facebook message posted on Saturday, the head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association stated that Clinton "crossed the line" with her remarks.
"Hillary Clinton crossed the line this week when she said that GOP candidates were like 'terrorists,' because they were supporting the defunding of Planned Parenthood's abortion clinics across the country," wrote Rev. Graham. more >>
Retired neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson ripped into the notion that there is a "war on women" in America when he declared, in a rousing address at a campaign event in Little Rock, Arkansas Thursday, there is no "war on women" but there may be one on "what's inside of women."
"There are those who are always trying to stir up trouble. They are always trying to drive wedges between us and you know they tell you that there is a war on women. There is no war on women, there may be a war on what's inside of women but there is no war on women in this country," said Carson in a clip from the event posted on YouTube.
The former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital was the first surgeon to separate conjoined twins at the head. more >>
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards admitted to Congress on Thursday that a Planned Parenthood clinic involved in fetal tissue research currently sells aborted baby body parts for $60 per baby, which critics say far exceeds what is allowed by law for reimbursement costs.
Planned Parenthood also released a report on the series of undercover videos appearing to show Planned Parenthood's involvement in the illegal harvesting and selling of aborted baby parts. The report, paid for by Planned Parenthood and from a liberal research group that has conducted opposition research for the Democratic Party, claims the videos falsely represent Planned Parenthood.
In a letter sent to congressional leaders addressing the recent undercover video series produced by the Center for Medical Progress that attempts to expose legal violations within the the abortion giant's fetal tissue reimbursement practices, Richards claimed that CMP's videos are nothing more than a "smear" campaign and asserted that her organization has violated no laws. more >>
In the current flashpoint for the pro-life movement — sparked by an ongoing undercover video investigation of Planned Parenthood — eyes are being opened on the moral issue of abortion. This past weekend an estimated 70,000+ people showed up at 352 protest rallies across America, most held in front of Planned Parenthood clinics.
The nation's largest #ProtestPP rally, attended by more than four thousand in St. Paul, Minnesota, was promoted heavily by evangelical pastor John Piper who spoke at the gathering. Such moral leadership raises a key question.
While the Catholic Church has been unequivocal in its pro-life stance and public advocacy, what of Evangelical Christians — who encompass a vast diversity of denominations, generations and backgrounds? more >>
Human beings have always had an extraordinary capacity for self-delusion. We justify horrible things by telling ourselves that we are acting in the service of a noble cause, or by dehumanizing the victims of our unjust actions.
History is littered with the corpses of innocent men and women who died in the name of their persecutor's depraved ideology. Josef Mengele is perhaps the most famous example of this principle.
One of the chief physicians at the Birkenau concentration camp, Mengele performed cruel and gruesome human experiments on Jewish twins in an attempt to prove the supremacy of the Aryan race. He was known by the children he selected for his experiments as "Uncle Mengele" because he treated them kindly and gave them sweets. These same children, however, were subjected to terrifying and painful procedures and often killed with impunity when they proved no longer useful. more >>
At a rally in Cleveland Thursday, Hillary Clinton upped the rhetoric on abortion, comparing pro-life Republicans to terrorist groups.
Clinton, who has been dogged for weeks by the story of using a personal email account and server to handle classified information, says she "takes it a little personal when they [Republicans] go after women."
"Now extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don't want to live in the modern world, but it's a little hard to take them from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States," declared Clinton. more >>
