A Texas judge has dropped a misdemeanor charge against pro-life activist David Daleiden, the man behind last year's series of undercover Planned Parenthood baby body parts videos, after he was indicted earlier this year by a Harris County grand jury.
In January, a grand jury responsible for investigating the purported illegal compensation practices of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Houston instead indicted Daleiden, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, claiming that he tried to illegally purchase fetal tissue from the abortion clinic during the undercover investigation.
In addition to the misdemeanor charge, Daleiden and his associate, Sandra Merritt, were indicted on felony charges of tampering with governmental records because they used fake drivers licenses to access the abortion facility. more >>
WASHINGTON — Just as God punished Israel for sacrificing their sons and daughters to the demons in Psalm 106, Jason and David Benham argued Saturday that America is already being punished by God for allowing the rise of abortion to kill nearly 60 million innocent babies in the last 40-plus years.
The Benham Brothers, former minor league baseball players who gained conservative prominence after their HGTV reality show "Flip it Forward" was nixed in 2014 due to liberal outrage over their conservative beliefs on gay marriage, spoke at the Faith & Freedom Coalition's "Road to Majority Conference" and urged Christians to wake up and lead a social reformation in America.
Speaking primarily about the transgender bathroom issue that has swept the nation following North Carolina passing a law earlier this year that struck down a transgender bathroom ordinance in Charlotte, the North Carolina natives said that the reason why the Left has been able to push transgender bathroom laws is because the Church had fallen asleep. more >>
WASHINGTON — College students need to stand up and fight for their free speech rights on campus in order to end the societal trend of illiberal liberalism that is beginning to plague the American culture, a religious freedom lawyer maintained Friday.
As today's political Left has fallen into the habit of trying to stifle debate by labeling social conservative arguments as racist, bigoted and offensive, Casey Mattox, senior counsel for the Christian legal group Alliance Defending Freedom, argued that society's infestation of intolerant liberalism can only be cured if it is first eliminated from the college campuses across the country that helped give birth to it.
At the Faith & Freedom Coalition's 2016 "Road to Majority Conference," Mattox participated in a panel discussion addressing "how to stop the left's all-out assault on religious freedom and freedom of speech." more >>
WASHINGTON — Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told a gathering of conservative Christians on Friday that he will "restore faith to its proper mantle" in America if he is elected the next president of the United States in November.
The billionaire real estate mogul was the keynote speaker at the Faith & Freedom Coalition's 2016 Road to Majority Conference and assured values voters that he will do all he can to protect the rights of people of faith to live and raise their children in accordance with their religious beliefs.
As some conservative Christians remain hesitant to vote for Trump as the "lesser of two evils" in the general election, Trump stressed that unlike presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, he will protect and not infringe upon religious freedoms of Americans. more >>
In June, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton made history as the first woman to be the presidential nominee for a major party.
While Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has vowed to continue his campaign to the floor of the Democratic National Convention, Clinton is expected to get the nomination.
The aforementioned nuance of her being the first major party candidate is important, as many women have headlined presidential tickets for third parties, going all the way back to when women in some states were not allowed to vote. more >>
