WASHINGTON — At the "very core" of Donald Trump is "a faith," Republican Vice Presidential Nominee and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence told hundreds of values voters Saturday morning, as he recalled a time when he and his wife prayed with the billionaire real estate mogul.
At the Family Research Council's annual Values Voters Summit, Pence assured the largely social conservative and evangelical gathering that if he is elected as the next vice president that he would "be your champion."
As some evangelicals still believe that they have to violate their conscience in order to vote for a man like Trump, Pence assured that a Trump-Pence administration will not only restore the political speech of churches, protect religious freedom, enact a 20-week abortion ban and defund Planned Parenthood, but it would also put pro-family policies at the heart of America's restoration. more >>
WASHINGTON — Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson expressed to hundreds gathered for the annual Values Voter Summit Friday his passionate distaste for secular humanism and his enthusiastic support for Donald Trump for president.
In remarks preceding the showing of a documentary titled "Torchbearer," a film in which Robertson is prominently featured and outlines how societies fall apart when they reject God, the 70-year-old A&E star did not mince words.
"When you allow men to determine for you what is right and what is wrong, when you allow men to determine what is good and what is evil, when you allow men to determine for you how much your life is worth, how much anybody's life is worth, you turn those things over to humans instead of vetting through this Bible," Robertson said, holding up a large, open Bible for all to see, at the Family Research Council's annual event held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. more >>
WASHINGTON — David and Jason Benham told hundreds of evangelical Christians Friday that the "prophetic implications" of Isaiah 59 are happening in America today, as those who publicly defend traditional Christian beliefs are being turned into "prey."
The Benham brothers, successful real estate entrepreneurs who gained notoriety among conservative Christians when their HGTV reality show was canceled because of liberal opposition to their beliefs on homosexuality, spoke for about 20 minutes at the Family Research Council's Values Voters Summit on Friday afternoon and warned that what people are calling the "sexual revolution" is actually more like the moral decay of society.
As Christians around the country — from wedding venders and pizza shop owners to government officials and MLB commentators — are facing social upheaval and massive consequences for voicing and acting on their Christian convictions and opinions, the Benhams suggested that there is a "radical revolution to overtake America." more >>

Biles, the 19-year-old gymnast who won four gold medals and one bronze at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, will release her book on Nov. 15, and hopes it will inspire readers to pursue their dreams.

R&B singer Jennifer Hudson quoted a verse from Proverbs earlier this week to reveal that she hasn't strayed far from her Christian roots, and is still the same girl who sang solos at church.
"Train a child in the way they should go and they will never part! I'm still the same girl," Hudson captioned an Instagram image, quoting Proverbs 22:6.
Hudson used the quote to caption a photo of herself after she attended the funeral of her late uncle, John Hudson. In another post, Hudson described how her uncle supported her career, and even payed the piano accompaniment during her first church solo. more >>
WASHINGTON — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump received a warm reception from a largely evangelical crowd at Family Research Council's annual Values Voters Summit at the Omni Shoreham Hotel on Friday afternoon.
Although many conservative evangelical Christians may still be up in the air about whether or not they can vote for the profane womanizer and billionaire real estate mogul, and other evangelicals have asserted they will vote for anyone but Trump, the evangelicals and social conservatives in attendance were not hesitant to embrace the GOP nominee with a standing ovation as he entered the stage after being introduced by actor Jon Voight.
In his 45-minute speech, Trump thanked evangelical voters for helping him edge out evangelical favorites like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to win the Republican primary and explained that the media and culture today has made it harder to be a Christian. more >>
