Isn't it a shame that, instead of the Church leading the way and politicians following, it is politicians leading the way and Christian leaders following?

Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, said that while Christians cannot possibly look at the Syrian civil war crisis and not feel compassion for the people, that doesn't mean the United States should accept unvettable refugees.
Jeffress said in an interview with Stuart Varney on Fox Business on Wednesday that while he believes most Muslims are peace-loving, it's also true that radical Muslims, and not Christians, are the ones carrying out terror attacks.
"No Christian, no human being can look at the situation in Syria and not feel compassion for the suffering Syrians. There are many things we can do and should do as a nation, but allowing un-vettable refugees into our country is not one of them," the megachurch pastor said on Wednesday. more >>

In an interview on Dr. James Dobson's "Family Talk" radio show to be aired Wednesday, Mike Pence, the Republican Party nominee for vice president, says a Donald Trump-Pence administration would, if elected, resolve both Obamacare's birth control mandate and President Barack Obama's transgender bathroom policy.
